Google IO is right around the corner and preparations are at full steam. Meanwhile, Samsung is getting ready to release some very interesting smartphones.
Google IO is almost here and the Search Giant has already posted the official schedule. The event will take place on June 25-26, two days of full geek bliss. You can go ahead and check it out at Google IO 2014’s website if you are interested.
Opinion: Taking a quick look at the schedule will not reveal much, but we expect a lot of news to come from the keynote.
Samsung announced the Galaxy K Zoom last April – a device that would blur the line between smartphones and point-and-shoot cameras. This phone is special in that it features a 20.7 MP optical zoom camera, but manages to look much like a phone.
The video displays how the device’s camera could be beneficial to your personal life as well as your career. It’s also not a bad smartphone sporting a 1.3 GHz quad-core or 1.7 dual-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, 8 GB of internal storage and a 2,430 mAh battery.
Opinion: I must say the Galaxy K Zoom seems much better than the Galaxy S4 Zoom, its predecessor. Its design is much more parallel to the classical smartphone look, and its specs aren’t exactly horrible. We still have to wait and see how it will be priced, though.
Popular leakster @evleaks is back, this time with rumors of a Samsung Galaxy Mega 2. He states the previously leaked Samsung SM-G750 will be named the Galaxy Mega 2. This family of devices is popular for offering large screens with mid-end specs, concluding to an affordable price point.
This would be a 5.1-inch version, but there is also said to be a larger, 6.0-inch Mega 2. This information comes from an older leak, which displays an SM-G750F. No other details are known on either device, but these leaks prove Sammy is working on said phones.
Opinion: I am not sure how low-end this phone will be, but previous rumors said the device would have a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor on a 720p display. That should equal to one snappy experience!
The Samsung SM-G750 self-identifies as "Mega 2."
