Samsung plans to announce a Android based, mirror-less professional camera in it’s next event which would be holding on June 20. The have named the camera as ‘Galaxy NX’. And before that, some pictures of that camera got leaked..
This beautiful mirror-less camera looks like a SLR. And combination of a SLR with Android should be one of the most awesome moves.
Talking about the spaces, we can expect the camera to feature a 20.3-megapixel APS-C sensor, max ISO of 25, 1080p video recording support, 600 and either a dual- or quad-core Exynos processor.
At the back it will have a 4.3-inch touchscreen which should support ‘high-resolution’ display.
Samsung is expecting to ship 10M Galaxy S 4 phones in the first month of its sale, reports DigiTimes. The Supply chain sources familiar with the component orders of Samsung, it is also redicted that Samsung plans to ship as many as 30 million Galaxy S4 smartphones in the Q2, 2013.
The company has lined up launching program in 50 countries and more than 300 carriers. It will without any doubt boost its initial sales numbers. The Galaxy S4 is not expected to see any delays in shipping like the pccurences in HTC’s One and Apple’s iPhone 5 mainly
because of Samsung’s in-house manufacturering of most of the components.
Something that hasn’t really been kept too much of a secret is Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet. MobileGeeks are reporting they’ve spotted the 8-inch slate on a bunch of Austrian stores that are all “supplied by the same distributor”.
We should expect two versions of the Galaxy Note 8.0, with 16GB and 32GB. The 16GB model should cost around 450-480 euros, which is roughly equivalent to $600-$650 USD. The 32GB version bumps this price up to the 490-550 euros mark, which roughly converts to $660-$740. Definitely getting into the upper end of expensive here.
Specifications-wise, one can expect the 8-inch slate to have a WXGA resolution of 1280×800, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera backed up by a 1.3-megapixel front camera, an S-Pen stylus, Blueooth 4.0 and GPS. We can definitely expect Android to be floating around inside the Galaxy Note 8.0, but which exact iteration is unknown right now. We should also expect cellular capabilities, but unfortunately only 3G. Availability in Austrian stores is said to be the 19th of February, which is only three weeks away.
There was a time when the Apple’s iPhone was the undisputed champion, overlooking the grassy knolls quietly whispering ‘this changes everything, again’ to itself, but those days are behind it thanks to huge competition coming in from what seems like all sides. To make things worse, it is losing some of its luster among Asia’s well-heeled consumers in Singapore and Hong Kong, a victim of changing mobile habits and its own runaway success.
Driven by a combination of iPhone fatigue, a desire to be different and a plethora of competing devices, users are turning to other brands, notably those from Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, eating into Apple’s market share.
Since 2010, Apple has been completely controlling Singapore in terms of market share, with more devices in Singapore running iOS per capita than anywhere else in the world. This is where StatCounter – gs.statcounter.com, who measure traffic collected from a network of 3 million websites, calculate Apple’s share of mobile devices in Singapore.
This includes the iPad and iPhone, where Apple’s market share dropped from its peak of 72% in January 2012, to under 50% this month, while Android devices now control 43% of the market, up from just 20% in the same month last year.
Anecdotal evidence of iPhone fatigue isn’t hard to find: Where a year ago iPhones swamped other devices on the subways of Hong Kong and Singapore they are now outnumbered by Samsung and HTC Corp smartphones.
