  • Samsung announcement of the London premiere of new Galaxy and ATIV devices Samsung announcement for the London premiere of new Galaxy and ATIV devices

     


    For the past couple of months now at Pure Mobile, Samsung's Galaxy S4 has been the big talk. We've practically been eating, sleeping and breathing Galaxy S4 cases and accessories since the device's launch. And, as of this month, Galaxy S4 sales had started to close in on those of the iPhone 5.


    But we can hardly expect this to be the last of Samsung's successes. And the company announced today that it will be holding an upcoming roadshow event, the "Premiere 2013" in London next month.


    The teaser poster for the June 20th event mentions Galaxy and ATIV devices, so we're pretty sure the company will be unveiling its latest Android and Windows devices. As for the teaser pics on the poster, which don't exactly spell things out, Engadget thinks they could relate to a a tablet or phone, laptop, and camera:


    "The remaining tiles show partial shots of three mysterious devices -- possibly a tablet or phone, a convertible laptop (à la Sony VAIO Duo 11) and a camera (maybe the rumored Galaxy S 4 Zoom?)"


    Oh, and speaking of rumors...before its official unveiling, Samsung was touting the Galaxy S4 as "the next big thing." But a recent leak could suggest that that Galaxy S4's successor could actually be the next little thing.


    According to BGR, which cites various sources, "Samsung is working on half a dozen different versions of its new flagship Galaxy S4 smartphone, including a more manageable variant called the Galaxy S4 mini."


    And the fact that the device  – presumably a smaller-scale version of the Galaxy S4  – actually briefly showed up online in Samsung's official app catalogue for the UK indicates that this is more than mere rumor. Indeed, as BGR put it, "the phone has now been confirmed by Samsung, albeit accidentally."


    So while we at Pure Mobile will probably still be obsessing over the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 accessories for the next month or so, we've got a feeling that, come the London event, we'll have an all new lineup of Samsung smartphones, tablets and other devices to sweep us off our feet.

  • Samsung_Galaxy_S4_Accessories_Leak


    If you're anxiously awaiting the arrival not only of the Galaxy S4 but also of the slew of Samsung accessories that's bound to come along with it, you've got more in store for you than the typical lineup of carrying cases and skins.


    A few days ago, Mobile Syrup reported on a leaked list of accessories for the device, which hint that the Samsung Galaxy S4 could, in fact, "be your 'life’s companion.'" That's because the list included all sorts of lifestyle products that go way beyond device protection, audio, storage, or usual range of mobile accessories.


    Among these new Galaxy accessories are a number of health and fitness gadgets, designed to work with your phone as a sort of wellness system. These include a body scale that sends data to your phone via Bluetooth and Samsung's nes S-Health app.

    That app is also at the heart of some of the other new Samsung accessories for the S4, like the S-Band bracelet. This wearable accessory works as a sleep pattern monitor and pedometer, and keeps track of calories burned.


    And even when a typical accessory, like a Galaxy carrying Case, did show up in the list, it was a spin on the expected. With the S-View Cover, a windowed cover for the Galaxy S4's display, you egt a flip cover with auto wake-up function and a display window that gives you time, and battery notifications. It also lets you take or reject calls without opening the flip.

    That's not to say there won't be tons of Samsung accessories out there for people who prefer their gadgets without all the bells and whistles; within weeks of its release, the Galaxy S4 should have carrying cases beyond count. But if you're looking for a phone that can be a lifestyle manager, the Galaxy S4's unique lineup of mobile accessories will probably make it the perfect fit.

  • Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch leaked picture Leaked screen shot of what is allegedly Samsung's answer to Apple's iWatch

     


    With smear campaigns and even legal drama, Apple and Samsung have been at war for some time now. And with a new Samsung phone accessory in development, we know exactly where the next battle will be fought.


    According to Bloomberg, the company is working on a smart watch that could rival the iWatch, a new Apple accessory that's also reportedly in development. And the potential for cut-throat competition between the two companies is already a hot topic, with the Wall Street Journal calling this their "next battleground" and 9to5Mac quipping "the smart watch race is on."


    Samsung Smart Watch leaked screen shot One of the alleged screen shots of Samsung's upcoming smart watch hints at features and a Galaxy name

     


    Samsung has actually confirmed they're working on this fun gadget, but they haven't really revealed anything about it. Still, there's speculation that it may be marketed as part of Samsung's Galaxy line. "One would think that a product like this would fall under the Galaxy naming scheme and be called something like the “Galaxy Watch,” writes MobileSyrup.


    Meanwhile, leaked screen shots obtained by Slashgear that puportedly show the device back that assumption up, with a view of the watch face displaying the name Samsung Galaxy Altius.


    Even though we don't know much yet about the upcoming device, if we judge by existing smart watches, like the Pebble or Sony's SmartWatch, we can make a few assumptions.


    Samsung's smart watch will most likely be a bluetooth-enabled accessory that allows you to view updates and notifications from your phone, and will probably also include features like an actual clock, a calendar and music player.


    Beyond that, it's hard to say. But since the smart watch market is looking a lot like an arms race these days, it's likely that this next Samsung phone accessory surpasses the Samsung-compatible Sony SmartWatch in terms of features. In any case, it'll have to, if Samsung wants to stand a chance in its next bout with Apple.

  • Samsung has already patched the dirty USSD code that threatened Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III

     


    As far as sheer volume of interest goes, Samsung outdid Apple this week, with more stories flying around about the Galaxy S III than about the iPhone 5.


    Top of the list was security. According to most of the top tech sites, Galaxy S III owners might have had a bit of a scare this week. That is, if Samsung hadn't already dealt with the problem before anyone even knew it existed.


    Apparently, says Mashable, a vulnerability was discovered in Samsung's Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) that "potentially allowed attackers to remotely wipe the contents of Galaxy S II and III devices," essentially restoring them to factory settings.


    This video, of Technical University Berlin researcher Ravi Borgaonkar at a security conference in Argentina, shows how it's done.



    Thankfully, Samsung's already come out with a patch, and the company issued a statement to Engadget urging users to update:


    “We would like to assure our customers that the recent security issue concerning the GALAXY S III has already been resolved through a software update. We recommend all GALAXY S III customers to download the latest software update, which can be done quickly and easily via the Over-The-Air (OTA) service.”


    So, now that your smartphone is safe and sound, how about encrusting it with crystals? If you're nodding your head in agreement, and if you have upwards of £2099 (about $3370 U.S.) to spare, maybe consider upgrading to the Samsung Galaxy S III Swarovski Edition?


    This crystal-encrusted "Swarovski Edition" Galaxy S III may cost you upward of $3370, but at least the case is free

     


    The device, available from Amosu Couture, is set with 500 Swarovski crystals around the bezel, plus an extra 16 around the home button. Sort of pricey and all, but you do get a free calf leather case.


    Now for the really juicy stuff. Hot on the heels of all the rumors surrounding an iPad Mini launch, Samsung's brewing its own big news about something small.


    This leaked German invite to a rumored Samsung Galaxy S III Mini launch reads: "So big can be small. And so small can be big."

     


    According to TechCrunch, which cited "a recently released press invitation," Samsung may be unveiling a smaller scale version of the Galaxy S III (the Mini) at a store in Frankfurt, Germany. The invite, written in German and loosely translated as "So big can be small. And so small can be big," is so far the only proof of such an event.


    But it's already got Samsung fans more than a little excited, if you'll excuse the pun.

    There’s a rumor- spotlight shining on a different area of technology redesign right now – materials used for device cases. Reports have it that Apple has a new “Liquidmetal” alloy for its next iPhone 5, and Samsung is working on a ceramic main body for its upcoming Samsung Galaxy III S smartphone.

    Apple is reported to be replacing the current iPhone’s glass case with a Liquidmetal alloy that will make the case both thinner and lighter. Liquidmetal is also supposed to significantly improve the case’s durability.


    It seems Apple has had this change in the works for awhile. Back in 2010, Apple acquired the rights to the “amorphous metal alloys” that Liquidmetal Technologies had developed. Not long after that, Apple was looking for engineers to work with the material.

    We should have confirmation on whether an iPhone case made out of Liquidmetal will be in our hands soon. According to South Korea’s ETNews, one of their sources reported that the next iPhone should be unveiled in June at the Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.


    The South Korean news site also announced that the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone will feature a ceramic main body, giving that phone a lighter weight and more comfortable grip. The ceramic material is manufactured with a new method for applying heat to a non-metallic inorganic substance. The Galaxy S III is scheduled to be unveiled in London on May 3rd.

    Samsung Galaxy S3


    The Samsung Galaxy S III has been the center of attention in the mobile phone blogosphere the past couple weeks. Leaks and rumors have been dropping left and right.  We comment on the more recent rumors surrounding everything related to the Samsung Galaxy S III.


    Quad-core processor: The Korea Times reports the Galaxy S III will feature a quad-core processor.


    An anonymous Samsung executive has revealed a bit of news about the upcoming Galaxy S III’s Exynos chip. It comes as no surprise that the Korean manufacturer is using its own chipset for the flagship device. It has for past iterations, and this is what we were expecting.   LTE fans that demand Exynos will be happy to see a reaffirmation from Samsung  that it is gaining LTE-capabilities.


    This is a major issue, especially within the US market place... wherein consumers,  have grown fond of the Exynos processors’ performance.   However, in the breadth, Samsung has indicated the need to use Qualcomm processors in order for their devices to be optimized for the LTE networks.


    The final whisper seem to allude that the new chipset is said to be a 32 nm silicon A9 quad-core processor, meaning that rumors of it being the Exynos 4412 are probably correct.


    Our Take: The way we see it, Samsung has two choices for the Galaxy S III. They either go with the Exynos 4412 (quad-core Cortex-A9) or the Exynos 5250 (dual-core Cortex-A15).   Most people thought the new iPad would be quad-core CPU and they were wrong, and I think Samsung's final CPU choice could also surprise people.


    Probability: deploying the Exynos 4412 CPU - 75%... deploying the exynos 5250 CPU - 25%

    Integrated LTE: The Korea Times and other blogs report the Galaxy S III will feature a processor with an integrated LTE modem.


    Our Take: Samsung does not integrate modems with their system-on-a-chip (SoC) like Qualcomm does. We have no doubt the Galaxy S III will be LTE-capable and use a Samsung LTE modem - just like the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, but it will not be integrated into the SoC.  Maybe the Exynos 6 series will have integrated LTE, but you will not find it on Exynos 4 chips or Exynos 5250.


    Probability:  We view this as a high improbability as such we award a less that 2% possibility

    June release: Numerous blogs are speculating the Galaxy S III will launch in June.


    Our Take: Previous reports said the Galaxy S III would launch in April, then May, and now the latest guess is June. Samsung previously said the successor to the Galaxy S II would be unveiled at “separate Samsung-hosted event in the first half of the year, closer to commercial availability of the product.” While we have no idea when the Samsung Galaxy S III will be releases , we are pretty confident to see the launch in June 2012


    Probability: We have been hearing the same rumors - we rate this as 90% truth factor

    Wireless charging from 1-2 meters away: Korean site Daily reports the Galaxy S III will feature wireless charging that works with a dock from 1-2 meters away.


    Our Take: Several current phones already feature wireless charging, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see as part of the Galaxy S III feature list. I find it really hard to believe it would work from 1-2 meters (3-6ft!) away though. The current inductive charging standard Qi only works when the charging receptacle is almost touching the device.


    Qualcomm was working on a propriety technology called WiPowerthat increased the distance between the transmitter and receiver coils by a couple of inches, but the charge had to be transferred though another material like plastic or wood. They previewed this technology at CES 2011, but it never came to market. I heard reports from the Qi group that there were concerns of electro-magnetic radiation when the transmitter and receiver coils are not close together.


    I’d be surprised if Samsung solved this radiation problem when Qualcomm couldn’t, and I still have my doubts of this remote charging feature.  It would be awesome if they discovered a safe way to do this, but I don’t see it happening this soon.


    Probability: We award this slim 10% possibility

  • iPhone - A Necessary Evil for Carriers
    Posted on February 13, 2012 by Pure Mobile

    By Aldo Panessidi


    We all agree that Apple’s iPhones are iconic. They have three models on the market compared to Android’s plethora of offerings with a multitude of manufacturers including the Samsung Galaxy S II, the HTC Amaze, the Motorola RAZR Droid and the LG Optimus 2X . But, Apple’s offerings have made it one of the most valuable companies in the world and has handed its partners a brilliantly branded and easily sold product. Add great activation figures every quarter for carriers that sell the smartphone and it sounds like a great partnership for both Apple and the carriers.


    iPhone 4 Black White


    Alas, the reality paints more of a love-hate relationship.   Carriers see the AT&T/iPhone exclusivity model and drool.   No competition from unlocked phones, other carriers, and seemingly one-of-a-kind device fits into the highly controlled model carriers prefer.  This explains why Sprint was willing to guarantee Apple $15.5 billion over four years to sell the iPhone. Then the mobile carrier posted a $1.3 billion financial loss last quarter. Then there is the bad blood with T-Mobile after failed negotiations over the iPhone which has resulted in the carrier offering iPhone users free microSIM cards to give up their 3G speeds and join their network.

Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    Recently Nomura Securities analyst Mike McCormack told CNNMoney, “A logical conclusion is that the iPhone is not good for wireless carriers […] When we look at the direct and indirect economics that Apple has managed to extract from the carriers, the carrier-level value destruction is quite evident.” This can be seen with Verizon’s drop in EBITDA service margin from 46.4% to 42.2% since adding the smartphone to its arsenal last year.  Whether iPad sales and service plans can make up for that remains to be seen.  However, they should be able to leverage the equally iconic and addicting Apple accessories.

    Alas, for now the iPhone is not going anywhere because of news like Sprint’s: best quarter in the past six years for net subscriber additions which can be attributed to the 720,000 new postpaid subscribers who changed to the carrier to get their hands on the iPhone. And by all accounts, the money should follow with increased price points and the newest iPhone release coming this year.

    There is no question that Samsung has the Android smartphone mastered at this point. With world-wide popularity and the manufacturer of the de facto line of Galaxy S 2  smartphones that are synonymous with “Android.” This set the bar high for a Samsung tablet. So far these expectations have fallen flat.


    Samsung Galaxy Tab Rumors


    Hopefully this trajectory changes following the rumored cancellation of the Samsung Galaxy S III that was scheduled to launch at Mobile World Congress. According to Android And Me, the upcoming Galaxy Tab would be a great replacement with an Exynos 5250 processor with a 10 inch display and the Android 4.0 OS, Ice Cream Sandwich.


    Turn your Samsung device into a power tool!  Discover select accessories such as; stylus & pens, micro SD memory cards, batteries, docking stations, Bluetooth headsets, data cables and glider gloves all specifically designed to make your devices functionally efficient and performance rich.


    What gives this latest gossip credence is the prototype seen at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. And what will set this slate apart is the fact that it not only will have the Android 4.0 but will also be Samsung’s first mobile processor with ARM’s latest Cortex-A15 CPU core. This translates into double the computing power, augmented memory bandwidth, all-day battery life and a whopping five times the graphics horsepower of existing CPUs.


    Leaving your valuable mobile devices unprotected is risky!  Discover the latest innovative protection solutions... stylish top brand bags, sleeves and cases specifically designed to protect your devices from scratches and blemishes.  Tough on the outside, sweet on the inside these brand name protection accessories combine complete device coverage with sleek artistic expression.


    These kinds of next-gen specs could be the turning point in Samsung’s quest to make a significant play in the tablet market. If they add in some innovative, top of the line accessories to the next release they can compete and incentivize customers to add another Samsung device into their homes. Whether those are docking stations, wireless attachments, or just artistic and great protective covers, these kinds of add-ons have the ability to solidify the popularity in this market for Samsung.


    There are no details on when this would be made available to the general public, but we will be sure to keep you informed of what Samsung’s offering will be.
