Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Confirmed

A Mini version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been confirmed by the Korean manufacturer.


Building on the success of the S4, which recently passed the 10 million sales mark, the S4 Mini is billed as “a powerful, compact version of Samsung’s bestselling smartphone”.


Featuring a 4.3” qHD Super Amoled display, the Galaxy S4 Mini weighs 107g and the manufacturers emphasise that “the lightweight and compact design enables you to carry and use the device easily with one hand”. It measures 124.6 x 61.3 x 8.94mm.


A 1.7Ghz dual core processor offers similar features to the S4, but the Mini version will not offer the eye-tracking that removes the need to scroll on the full-size version. It features an 8MP camera and a 1.9MP front-facing version, offering similar camera features and automatic ‘story album’ building, as well as the S Translator, “for instant translation using text or voice on applications including email, text message”.


The Mini also includes the S4’s remote control for TVs and the S Health features that include calorie counting and activity and sleep monitoring. It will be available in two colours, black and white, and in £G, 3G dual sim and 4G versions. Release dates and prices have yet to be announced.


Simon Stanford, Vice President of IT & Mobile Division for Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland said “Demand for the Galaxy S4 has been phenomenal since it launched in April and we hope to build on this success with the Galaxy S4 Mini.” He claimed “This new handset is the ideal smartphone companion for anyone who wants a compact device packed with innovation.”

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Intel Tablet Unveiled

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Intel Tablet Unveiled | Samsung New Devices |

A new generation of Samsung tablets will use Intel chips, it has been announced.


The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch and 10.1-inch models claim to deliver improved ways of viewing content in highly portable formats. Reuters said Samsung, despite not naming the chips to be used in its press release, confirmed it will use Intel processors, marking “a major victory for the US chipmaker, which is struggling to find its footing in the mobile market”.


Samsung has previously used chips designed with energy-efficient technology from the UK’s ARM Holdings for its best-selling mobile devices. Samsung said the Galaxy Tab 3 8-inch was “Designed to be held in one hand” and that it was “the optimal device for viewing videos, playing enhanced games, and reading e-Books anytime, anywhere.”


It features a “reading mode” for comfortable reading over long periods, as well as implroved sound and features taken from the S4 mobile phone such as S Translator, “which provides instant translation through voice recognition and via text on applications including email, text message, and [Samsung’s chat service] ChatON”.


The tablet can also be used as a TV remote, while the 10.1-inch model claims to feature a “comprehensive suite of video, music and photo software, and coupled with the clarity of its display, the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 takes centre stage for portable home entertainment”.


No prices or release dates have yet been announced but Samsung said the Galaxy Tab 3 Series will be available in the UK later this year. There will be a 4G LTE version, 3G version, and WiFi version. Both tablets, however, offer specifications likely to mean they will be competitively priced. The 8-inch uses a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 5MP camera and 1.5GB of RAM, with the offering 1280 x 800 resolution, or 189ppi. The 10.1-inch model offers the same resolution, lowering the pixel density to 149ppi.

I believe that could really work. I like it.

I completely believe in a "mind over matter" approach.  After all your body is capable of producing every drug you could ever find in a drug store.  What's even better, your body can administer the exact dose for the exact time required.  I kid you not!  The trick is to truely believe without a shadow of any doubt.

this app sounds very cool, however it makes me worry how much more we really want to depend on technology. When I first started reading the article i thought it looked amazing, but then I realised that I am on my phine so ofte anyway; always checkingfacebook and keeping in touch with friends, even when i have friends sitting right next to me. My phone destracts me from the here and the now, even though connection is great sometimes it blocks out life that is passing by so fast. Now there is something more we should depend on our Phones for, things that we should get from actual human interaction- Justine Pearce
