Arrest of Samsung’s Lee may not affect smartphone business in short term

smartphone business


The arrest of Samsung Electronics’ vice chairman Lee Jae-yong on Friday in South Korea may not have a direct impact on the company’s high-profile electronics business, including its smartphones unit, according to analysts.


Samsung announced in 2012 the promotion of the executive, also known as Jay. Y. Lee, to his current formal position at Samsung Electronics. But he is largely seen as the de-facto leader of the Samsung Group, running the business on behalf of his ailing father, Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-Hee.
He was arrested on charges of bribery as part of an alleged corruption scandal that led to the impeachment of South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye.

Nokia’s Android Phones Leak : 2K Display with Snapdragon 820

Nokia may finally be coming back, this time with a vengeance. The two phones leaked of the Finnish Manufacturer making a mega comeback, include a smaller 5.2-inch display model and a larger 5.5-inch model.

Android news

Both have a 2K display and will come with the Z-Launcher System UI based on the latest .0 Nougat (Android N). Specs wise the two phones will be powered by Snapdragon 820 chipset an IP68 Waterproof and Dustproof protected all metal body, so goodbye polycarbonate. The Previous leak of Nokia seems to fall into place here.

The bigger sibling of the two is reportedly sporting a 22 MP camera and will launch at a price of US $ 500  ( Rs. 34000) . The company will launch the phones at the end of the year post the official Android Nougat reveal in two months.

By that time smartphones will be working on the next Qualcomm Snapdragon 823/821. In effect Nokia will be late as usual to the party, however this time with a more meaningful product.

New phones of the week

smartphones 2016

This week we got phones ranging from 4.5" to 5.5", each of them ranking high on feature and low on price. 


Xiaomi kicked things off with the Redmi 3, a phone that barely crosses the $100 mark, but brings an all-metal body, a 5" display, octa-core chipset and a surprisingly big 4,100mAh battery for its 8.5mm of thickness.

A few days later the company launched the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3... no, not this one, this one. The 5.5" phablet aimed at the international market and swaps the Helio chipset for a Snapdragon 650 and upgrades the camera to 16MP along the way.

On the other end of the size scale is the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016), which tiptoed into official status. It has a 4.5" screen (Super AMOLED), a quad-core chipset and a 5MP camera. Its official price tag of $135 is $10-$20 above what can be found with a bit of shopping.

The Lenovo Lemon 3 competes with the Redmi 3 with a 5" screen (with a higher resolution, 1080p) and a similar just-over-$100 price tag. It has a 13MP camera and the same Snapdragon 616 chipset.

Slimtype is a QWERTY keyboard cover for the Samsung Galaxy S6

Slimtype is a QWERTY keyboard cover for the Samsung Galaxy S6

It seems that BlackBerry is not alone in wanting to revive the QWERTY keyboard for mobile phones, such as the Norwegian company One2One Touch has just unveiled its own physical keyboard accessories for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but not the plus model, called the slim type.


The slim type connects up to the galaxy S6 by NFC instead of Bluetooth connection, they were included in the rule with a wireless keyboard accessory, and it does not require its own battery pack either. The keyboard must have its own app from the save game, but after that you are good to go. There are also keyboard shortcuts for E-mail, web and search, together with a dedicated emoji button.

QWERTY Keyboard


The keyboard is integrated into a slim case that simply clips on the back of your smartphone and is manufactured from a comfortable textile surface. But this also means that there is nothing to prop up the screen so that you probably only with it when the phone flat. I personally think that it is an elegant looking design than Samsung's own QWERTY Keyboard Accessories for its galaxy Smartphones, but perhaps not so convenient.

One2Touch not announced, if the keyboard is actually hit store shelves, but the company is already the reservations through the official website.

The slimtype is available for only $39 for a limited period of time after the launch. Customers can have their pick black Sapphire, cherry red or white pearly color options.


Apple has thought that two rear cameras on the iPhone

two rear cameras on the iPhone

one of the biggest strengths of the iPhone has long been his camera, and a new patent application from Apple shows how it could be improved still further in the future. The application first discovered by patently Apple, is obviously for a dual system of the camera on the back of your smartphone. Apple is in the foreground, at least in this patent is the photographer a way to enlarge without losing image quality.

The idea is that a camera had a wide-angle lens, the other had a much deeper focal length. Then you could switch between the two without resolution how to use digital zoom.


Both cameras could be shooting at once.


Of course there are many other ways that Apple could decide to a Dual camera system. A 3D camera is among them, but it seems unlikely, unless Apple also a 3D screen to display them. Also as a zoom system, there are more than just switching from one to the other to take photos. The patent application proposes a could be used to generate still images, while the other entries Video; Apple even imagine that the camera app could stitch the two together, with the exposures to highlight important moments. The cameras can also shoot at different speeds or different resolutions.

As always with patents, it is difficult to say how seriously considering Apple. But there were some rumble in the past on a Dual camera system on the iPhone. Apple his own opinion John Gruber mentions only over a year ago that he had heard the iPhone could adopt a "two lens system" in the future, what the camera "DSLR picture quality." At least one recent report, even if questionable truth, brings the rumor that for the iPhone 7. The idea that Apple could dramatically improve the quality of the image with a second camera still seems questionable, but give iPhone owners a way to avoid using Digital Zoom, would certainly be a way of improving the quality, even if only in certain situations.

Soon you may be able to use your smartphone on your wrist or bend your computer to fit in your pocket!

Researchers have taken a step towards more flexible devices by fabricating a thin film that keeps her even when very curved electric and magnetic properties useful.

Flexible electronics have been difficult to manufacture because many materials with useful electronic properties tend to be rigid.

Researchers have addressed this problem by taking small pieces of material such as silicon and embedded in the flexible plastic.

A team of physicists and engineers from South Korea took the same approach with bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3) - one of the most promising materials whose properties can be controlled with a magnetic field, and vice versa.

These materials are called multiferroic and attract interest for applications such as energy efficient, instant-on computing.

The researchers synthesized bismuth ferrite nanoparticles and mixed in a polymer solution. The solution was dried in a series of steps at increasing temperatures to produce a thin, flexible film.

When the researchers tested the electrical and magnetic properties of the film they found that their new material did much more than preserving the useful properties of bismuth ferrite more - it actually made them better.

And the improved properties are maintained even when the film curled into a cylindrical shape.

"Bulk bismuth ferrite is crucial problems for some applications, such as a high leakage current hampering strong electrical properties," said YoungPak Lee, a professor at Hanyang University in Seoul, South Korea.

Mixed bismuth ferrite nanoparticles in an improved polymer leakage current problem, he said, and gave the film, flexible tensile properties.

Flexible Multiferrorics could allow new portable devices such as surveillance equipment health or virtual reality attire, Lee said.

The multiferroric materials could be used in high density, energy efficient memory and switches on these devices, he said.

The research was published in the journal Applied Physics Letters.
