Last week was insane! Just in case you were not around, we were going nuts getting you all that Computex 2014 coverage. There is no rest for the wicked (and tech bloggers), so we are back with your Monday morning news!
Let’s start the news with a brand new leak. Today we are taking a look at what could be named the Samsung Galaxy F. Rumors say it should be an improved version of the Samsung Galaxy S5, before rumored as the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime. We are not sure if these are the same device, though, as previous leaks did look different.
The Samsung Galaxy F is said to have a 5.3-inch QHD (2560x1440p) display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM and a 16 MP camera. No other details are given, but all the hype is revolving around the Galaxy F’s rumored metal body.
Opinion: In the images, we can certainly see some form of different construction, but we are not sure it really looks like metal. Maybe some kind of metal/plastic hybrid? The picture can’t really tell us everything, so we must wait until more details emerge.
It seems the Search Giant is trying to buy the whole industry! They have gone on a shopping spree that doesn’t seem to end, and rumors say they now have their eyes on Songza. This music streaming app is among the best in song curation, allowing you to listen to random tunes depending on your mood.
You can listen to playlists like “working in an office”, or “getting fired up”. Competitors usually curate playlists based on music genres or artist similarity. It’s said this is the reason why Google may want to acquire Songza, but the latter may not be too happy about the offer. Google is said to be offering only 15 million to Songza, which is not the best of offers.
Opinion: Surely, Songza must be worth more than that, with 5.5 million active users. This is nearly half of Pandora’s active users, and that company is evaluated at about $5 billion.
Smash the Past winners have gotten their devices, and now it’s time for everyone else to start seeing their invites. In fact, Google+ user Derek Ross has already gotten his, and he is showing us the goodies at his page.
Opinion: There is no denying this is a tempting time for OnePlus One fans. The $300 high-end smartphone has become a hit, and is worth every single penny it costs, and more.
