Android 5.0 release date confirmed. Will your device get it?

Android 5.0 release date confirmed. Will your device get it?

  A note sent to app developers which was obtained by Android Police informs developers that the Software Development Kit for Android 5.0 is now available. It further advises developers that they can start working and testing their apps on the Android 5.0 platform. It concludes by revealing that Android 5.0 will be available to consumers starting 3rd November. Considering both the Nexus 9 and the new Nexus 6 will be available starting early November, this is quite predictable. Both of them will come preloaded with Android 5.0, and it makes sense for Google to push the update out to earlier devices at this time too. As we have seen in the past, Google’s own Nexus devices will be the first to get the update, followed by the Google Play devices. HTC has also confirmed that the One M8 and One M7 will be getting the update worldwide, “Within 90 days of the software release from Google”. Motorola has also confirmed that they’ll be releasing the update later this year for their phones. Thanks to the new Material design, Android 5.0 lollipop has a whole new look and feel to it, making it a significant update over Kit Kat. The big question is, will your device get it? The list below shows the phones that have been confirmed to get the update (Though we can’t guarantee a timeline at this point): GOOGLE Nexus 4 Nexus 5 Nexus 7 (2012) Nexus 7 (2013) Nexus 10 GOOGLE PLAY EDITION HTC One (M7) HTC One (M8) Samsung Galaxy S4 Moto G Sony Z Ultra LG G Pad 8.3 ANDROID ONE Micromax Canvas A1 Spice Dream UNO Karbonn Sparkle V MOTOROLA Motorola Moto X Moto X 2nd Gen.

The Note 4, Note 3, Galaxy S5, and the Galaxy S4 should be getting it, if rumors are to be believed. If not, well, there’s always XDA Will you be waiting for the official update, or will you be flashing a Lollipop based rom beforehand? Let us know in the comments...

Download the APK. 2. Download Root Explorer. 3. Install the APK (“Unknown Sources” must be enabled. Close the app.) 4. Open Root Explorer. Under “root” folder, find “system folder”. 5. Press mount R/O, then press build.prop and edit the following (a backup will be automatically be made once it’s saved): ro.product.model=Galaxy S4 ro.product.brand=Samsung ro.product.manufacturer=Samsung 6.

Samsung Announces the Galaxy S5!

Posted by on Feb 25, 2014 in News, Phones, Samsung | 0 comments

Samsung Announces the Galaxy S5!

It’s that time of the year when Samsung comes out with a *New* Flagship. This year, they’ve added an iPhone 5S-like Biometric Fingerprint reader on the button. The phone is water and dust resistant, and sports some new features like a faster camera and a Heart Rate Monitor. The Galaxy S5, which was unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, will be available in 150 countries on April 11. However, the company did not announce the price of the new smartphone. It sports a slightly larger 5.1-inch Super AMOLED (1080 X 1920p) display which looks similar to that of the Galaxy S4. It’s .1 inches larger than the S4’s Display. Powered by a 2.5GHZ Quad Core Processor and 2GB of ram, the Galaxy S5 will come in 16GB and 32GB variants, with an option to expand memory by 128GB using the Micro-SD card slot. The Galaxy S5 comes in 4 different colors: Black, White, Blue and, Wait for it… GOLD! Yes, you read that right! Everyone seems to be releasing tacky gold phones these days, following the footsteps of Apple. The Galaxy S5 in gold looks like a large Band-Aid, with its grooves on the back panel. Despite its familiar design, the GS5 has a few new useful hardware features, including a fingerprint scanner, heart rate sensor, and a toned-down TouchWiz UI on top of Android 4.4 KitKat. Perhaps the biggest surprise of all, however, was that Samsung didn’t overload its prized new smartphone with a heaping dose of new S-branded features. It is IP67 certified dust and water-resistant. The back panel of the phone sports a dimpled soft-touch cover, similar to the Nexus 7(2012) tablet. In terms of connectivity options, the Galaxy S5 offers Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and ac, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, NFC and InfraRed. The phone supports a large number of 4G LTE frequency bands with LTE Category 4 standard. It comes with accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer, RGB ambient light, Gesture (IR), and heart rate sensors. The phone packs in 2800mAh battery with a claimed standby time of 390 hours and talk time of 21 hours. The Fingerprint scanner is the main addition this year. It allows you to unlock your phone, as well as lock some apps within your phone. Samsung is reportedly in talks with PayPal to enable fingerprint authorisation. I would like to see the fingerprint reader being used in Chrome, so I can just swipe my finger to log into websites. That would be really cool. Of course, Samsung also put some emphasis on the camera as well. In this case, the GS5 comes with a 16-megapixel sensor that features UHD recording capability and real-time HDR (both photos and video) and a couple new modes that we’re excited to review. First, Samsung is introducing a selective focus feature that’s much like Nokia’s Refocus Lens, in which you can change the depth of field on an image after it’s taken. Additionally, it also has “Shot & More,” which is essentially your standard suite of best photo, eraser and drama; the GS4 had the ability to do these modes, but the difficulty was in the fact that you had to know exactly which mode you wanted to use before taking the shot, whereas now you’ll be able to sort those details out after...

My love for tech began one rainy day in ’01, When I got my Playstation 2. I fell in love with the console. Me and my friends would spend long days and nights playing ATV Offroad fury on it. I got my first smartphone in ’09, the iPhone 3GS. I was really mesmerized at the things I could do with, well, what was essentially a Phone. With that, I began writing on blogs and making video reviews about...
