Note 5 and Project Zen rumors arise


Samsung_Galaxy_Note_4_Main_02_TA

With the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge released and the dust finally settling over Samsung’s almost perfect smartphone, attentions are turning toward Samsung’s other flagship series, the Note line. While last year’s Note series kicked off the curved Edge line with the Note Edge, the most current of rumors highlights on what we may not see this year.

According to SamMobile sources, Samsung may only release one variant of the Galaxy Note 5 and it could sport a 2-4K flat-screen Super AMOLED display. IT will also sport a Exynos 7422 processor and Samsung’s very own modem. The Exynos 7422 will be Samsung’s first all-in-one processor, housing the CPU, GPU, RAM, modem and internal storage, all on one chip.

Samsung will also be toying with some Note 5 devices having the Exynos 7430 chipset, but those will be just an engineering example and there isn’t any plans for that specific model to be a consumer release. The same can be said about the Note 5’s display and Samsung is currently bouncing around between the 2k and 4k displays.

As far as the Edge variant that we probably won’t see, the phone that is actually set to allegedly replace the device is codenamed “Project Zen.” The device will not be a curved variant of the Note 5 but will be a device with its own non-completely high-end specs. The device is rumored to pack a 5.4-5.5-inch Super AMOLED curved display, an S Pen, a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 16GB of internal storage, an 8MP front-facing camera and a 16MP rear shooter complete with OIS.

Of course, as per the norm, all this should be taken with a grain of salt. Given we’re still about four months away from seeing anything announced officially from the Korean company, a lot can change between now and then. What would make you consider the Note 5?

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 4 finally gets Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update


samsung galaxy note 4 frost white aa 5

Following behind AT&T and Sprint, T-mobile has now started rolling out an update to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop for owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4! We were already aware this update was coming sometime this week, but thanks to numerous tipsters this morning, we can confirm the update is now live for some users.

The latest update packs the firmware number N910TUVU1COD6 and appears to be a 1085.68MB download. In other words, you’ll probably want to be on Wi-Fi, unless you have unlimited data.

As for what’s new here? As with the case of pretty much all Samsung devices that have moved from KitKat to Lollipop, the aesthetic changes here aren’t nearly as big as you’d see with a device running a stock build of Android, as TouchWiz covers up many of the expected Material Design tweaks. That said, there are still plenty of noticeable changes including Lollipop’s Smart Lock security feature, priority notifications, an improved lockscreen, and much more.

Keep in mind that this update is likely rolling out in stages, so don’t be too surprised if it has yet to reach your device. So how about it, have you received Android Lollipop on your T-Mobile Note 4 yet? If so, what do you think?

Thanks to all that sent this tip in! And a special thanks to John and Alfonso for the screenshots used above!

AT&T Galaxy Note 4 now receiving Lollipop update


Galaxy Note 4 Verizon-8

Last month the Galaxy Note 4 started to receive Lollipop in select international markets, and earlier this month US owners on Sprint’s network also saw an update to Google’s sweet treat. On the heels of the Now Network, A&T is now rolling out Android 5.0.1 to the Galaxy Note 4.

As is typical, expect the update to roll out in stages, and so it may not be waiting for you just yet, even if you have an AT&T Note 4. If the update is ready, keep in mind that the update’s download speed is reportedly very slow, for whatever reason, and so it may take hours for the update to complete.

So what’s new here in this 1.1GB file? Like we’ve seen from other Samsung devices, material design elements from Lollipop are much less noticeable than they would be on a stock Android device. That said, there’s still plenty of changes such as brighter colors, an updated multitasking interface, a new lockscreen, Lollipop’s priority system and a number of bug fixes. Of course, Lollipop also introduces plenty of new bugs of its own that Android 5.1 aims to fix, but that’s a whole other story.

Have you managed to get your hands on the Note 4 AT&T Lollipop update yet? If so, what do you think so far?

Samsung’s Milk Music service now accessible through the Galaxy Tab 4 and Note tablets


Samsung-milk-music-ces-2015

Samsung announced the Milk Music streaming service last year to take on the likes of Beats Music, Pandora and Spotify. Its compatibility however was limited to a handful of Samsung devices, mostly limited to smartphones. Today, the Korean manufacturer has introduced support for Milk Music on Galaxy Note tablets as well as the lineup of Galaxy Tab 4 devices.

Samsung is yet to specify which Note tablets will be compatible, but the list shouldn’t be large considering that there are only a handful of Note tablets that have launched over a one year period. Milk Music is available only on Samsung devices and offers users an ad-free music listening experience. Customers will have to shell out $3.99 per month for this privilege, although it was initially made available for free.

So if you own a Galaxy Tab 4 or any of the recently launched Galaxy Note devices, make sure you check the Play Store for compatibility.

Samsung working on a 5.9-inch 4K Super AMOLED display for next year’s Galaxy Note 5


samsung-display-slide-1

2014 gave us the first smartphones with a Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display, but that’s not good enough is it? I am thinking 700+ ppi makes a lot more sense doesn’t it? Yup, I am talking Ultra HD baby, as in 4K. Well Samsung seems to agree as they are working on a 5.9-inch Super AMOLED display that will sport a resolution of 3840 x 2160 and a ppi of 746.

This is hardly surprising since Samsung did reveal a roadmap (above) during their Analyst Day last year.  It does show an UHD display for sometime in 2015. If Samsung does pull this off, expect to see it on the Galaxy Note 5.

Overkill? Possibly, but with Samsung’s phones allowing you to display multiple apps at the same time on the display, it actually is utilized. It means that you could shows 4 pop up apps on the display at the same time giving you a resolution of 960 x 540 (qHD) for each app. Displaying 3 apps at the same time would give you 720p each. So you see, you do need it :-)
