Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch Will Soon Work With More Samsung Devices

Samsung has announced that the Galaxy Gear smartwatch will be made compatible with the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy Note 2.

The Galaxy Gear is currently only compatible with the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition. However, the Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) update will extend compatibility to the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy Note 2.
Samsung will also extend Galaxy Gear compatibility to other Galaxy devices – including the Galaxy S4 Mini, S4 Active, Mega 5.8, Mega 6.3, and Galaxy S4 Zoom – through a separate software update beginning globally at the end of October. Software update schedules for each device will vary by country and operator.

“Extending the Galaxy Gear compatibility to more Galaxy devices reflects our deep commitment to continuing to deliver our consumers enriched mobile experiences,” said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile division, Samsung Electronics.

The Galaxy Gear will enable Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy Note 2 users to make and answer calls and view incoming messages and notifications with just a glance. For a closer look at more important messages, users can simply pick up their master device and the Smart Relay feature instantly reveals the full content.

With a 1.9 Megapixel camera, users can snap photos by tapping the Galaxy Gear’s screen. Photos are automatically saved in the master device’s gallery.The smartwatch also has a built-in Pedometer app and can be used to control the music played on the master device.

Samsung said the Android 4.3 update will also provide easier text input, and updated graphics and multimedia. Some Samsung features and applications will also be updated, including Knox (Samsung’s mobile security solution), Smart Switch (which transfers content from other smartphones to Samsung devices) and HomeSync cloud storage.

Technology analyst firm Canalys predicts the smartwatch market will boom over 2014 with the release of a “new generation of devices”, with up to five million smartwatches being shipped by the end of the year.

“Smartwatches will be the most important new product category in consumer electronics since the iPad defined the market for tablets,” said Chris Jones, a vice president at the firm.

“Software platforms tied to smartwatches will also be a tremendous opportunity for developers to write apps in categories such as health and wellness or sports and fitness.”

However, Samsung’s decision not to make the Galaxy Gear compatible with smartphones made by other manufacturers has been criticised by some reviewers, and is likely to limit sales of the device.

Samsung Galaxy Express 2 lands on Vodafone 4G Tomorrow

The Samsung Galaxy Express 2 is warping across the galaxy to Vodafone this week, giving you a 4G option that hopefully won’t beam all the cash out of your wallet.

The Galaxy Express — apart from sounding like a 1980s Saturday morning cartoon — is a mid-range 4G Android phone. It sports a 4.5-inch screen with a 1.7GHz dual core processor and 1.5GB RAM underneath.

The software is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which isn’t as up-to-date as we’d like from a new phone — Android 4.4 is just around the corner — but then this is a more wallet-friendly option than cutting-edge phones.

Other features include a 5-megapixel camera with flash and a low-resolution camera on the front for video chat, with 8GB of storage for your snaps, apps, music and movies. It also packs Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.

The Galaxy Express 2 LTE UK release date is tomorrow, 23 October, only from Vodafone. It comes in white or blue colours; the blue is just for Vodafone customers but the white version will be available from other networks “at a later date.”

Vodafone offers extra-fast 4G LTE data for mobile phones, tablets and dongles in Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester, Liverpool, London, Nottingham and Sheffield, with Glasgow scheduled to be switched on this week. If you sign up this month, Vodafone will give you an extra 4GB of data each month.

How To Unlock A Samsung Galaxy Note 2 Or S3 For Free

Anyone who has a locked version of a Samsung handsets, for instance the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or S3 can now unlock their device and then use it with any carrier.

Say for instance you bought the Samsung Galaxy S3 with Verizon. If the handset is locked then it can only be used with that carrier. But if you were to unlock it and you are not in contract then you could take it to any carrier.

You would even be able to send the handset overseas.

So take out your Verizon SIM card, or the SIM card of your carrier, and put in any other. Switch your handset off and then turn it back on again.

Go to the dial pad on your phone and type in *#197328640#. Head to your main menu > [1] UMTS > [1] Debug Screen > [8] Phone Control > [6] Network Lock > Options [3] Perso SHA256 OFF. You then need to wait for around 30 seconds before going back into your main menu and selecting back. You should see “Network Lock” now. Choose [4] NW Lock NV Data INITIALLIZ.

The sequence that you should have typed in is “Asterisk Pound One Nine Seven Three Two Eight Six Four Zero Pound”. Don’t forget that some people call the asterisk the star button, and call the pound button hash.

You should now be holding a Galaxy handset that you can use with any SIM card anywhere in the world. Bear in mind that as this code has been used for some time you may be able to use it with just about any Samsung device.

Samsung Galaxy S5: Release Date Delayed to March or April Due to Magnetic Resonance Wireless Charging

Samsung may be featuring another big thing in place of fingerprint scanner on the upcoming Galaxy S5 for 2014. New reports hinted an upgraded wireless charging technology called Magnetic Resonance for the smartphone to allow owners charge S5 wirelessly without requiring any docking ports but its release date may be moved to March or April.

Samsung Galaxy S5 with Magnetic Resonance

According to ETNews, Samsung is currently working on a new form of wireless charging and it will allow Galaxy S5 owners to charge the device at longer distances without requiring any charging pod.

Wireless charging known today requires a charging pod which receives the energy from the charger plugged on AC source and delivered to the device. For quite some time, rumours have spread about an upcoming new wireless charging and it seems like Samsung will make it come true in 2014.

However, reports also indicate that the technology may not be ready in early 2014 and probably during the middle of the year. Samsung aims to get the technology done by the middle of 2014 which makes Galaxy S5 launching date in March or April, similar with Galaxy S4 timeline.

If successful, upcoming Galaxy smartphones and tablets may feature Magnetic Resonance wireless charging technology.

Fingerprint Sensor

Primarily, Galaxy S5 has been rumoured to feature its own fingerprint sensor to match Apple’s iPhone 5S. Unfortunately, the technology planned to be used appears too young for quality.

Korea Herald reported Samsung’s skipping over its fingerprint technology feature on Galaxy S5 since it is not yet ready at this time. The company needs more time to improve their fingerprint sensor to match quality test for commercial use.

One possible device which may feature is the Galaxy Note 4. Note devices are usually announced at the middle of the year during September and October and it is logical for Samsung to decide on adding a fingerprint scanner on Note 4 to match quality, function and intelligence of the phablet.

“We never officially admitted that Samsung was weighing the fingerprint system and Knox for Galaxy Note 3 for security functions. We are not yet developing the technology,” an unnamed Samsung executive told Korea Herald.

Crucialtec, a Korean company, is the best bet to help out fingerprint sensor on Samsung mobile devices but Crucialtec remains behind Authentec in terms of patents and solutions which make their technology one year far from being stable.

Rumoured Technical Specifications

Nothing is clear yet regarding Galaxy S5 technical specifications as everything remains to be rumoured floating around. But some of them may probably happen in 2014.

* All-new design which probably made of metal

* Ultra-slim RAM chipset

* Slimmer battery pack

* Android 4.4 KitKat

* Exynos 6 processor with 64-bit support

* 13MP camera

* Wireless charging using Magnetic Resonance

If you’ve got a locked Samsung Galaxy Note 2 or Galaxy S3, you can easily unlock it, and for no extra charge, so that you can take your device onto any carrier you like, anywhere in the world.

Say you have a locked Galaxy S3 on Verizon – you’re tied to that carrier, but if you unlock it you can migrate it to anywhere or to anyone you like. You could emigrate with your phone, or send it overseas to a friend of relative. If this is your sort of thing, read on.

To get started, remove your Verizon SIM and replace it with a “foreign” (not Verizon) SIM. Then turn your phone off and on again.

Then you should go into the dialpad and enter this sequence: *#197328640#. Head to your main menu > [1] UMTS > [1] Debug Screen > [8] Phone Control > [6] Network Lock > Options [3] Perso SHA256 OFF. You then need to wait for around 30 seconds before going back into your main menu and selecting back. You should see “Network Lock” now. Choose [4] NW Lock NV Data INITIALLIZ.

The sequence that you should have typed in is “Asterisk Pound One Nine Seven Three Two Eight Six Four Zero Pound”. Don’t forget that some people call the asterisk the star button, and call the pound button hash.

If all’s gone right you should have an unlocked Galaxy device that can be used on any network anywhere. This code’s been around for a while and might work on other Samsung devices.
