It looks like the occasion has come to welcome a newbie of Samsung Mega family. Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will be hitting the market soon according to sources. The great share of Android users has gone addicted of using bigger screens from the past few years. With the motive of creating their bigger than every Smartphone Screen, Samsung has implanted a massive 5.9inch screen in Samsung Galaxy Mega 2. Along with this massive size, this display will be an HD display with screen resolution of 720*1280pixels. This Smartphone is going to be the new innovation of Samsung possessing a 64bit processor along with Quad core Snapdragon 410 clocked at 1.2GHz.

Samsung Galaxy Mega 2


Well, no matter the processor has been improved but there should have been a good quantity of improvement in its speed. A large number, this 1.2GHz processor is just an average thing for a Smartphone under these criteria. The best part of the surprise is that the rumours have been saying that this Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will be installed with Android L platform. But some of the reports suggest that it will be launched with Android 4.4.3 Kit Kat. Whether this operating system or the Android L, it’s going to be something fresh and unseen. Besides these spectacular features, Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 will be having 8GB of inbuilt storage and 2GB of RAM. In this high specification Smartphone, 8GB memory looks fishy. At least 16GB could have done a far better job. Android always chokes when it comes to internal memory that’s its main problem while as rest of the Operating systems have left this issue far behind.

However 2GB of RAM feels good in coupling with a 64bit Quad core processor. The camera has been rightly housed in this massive giant. It is alleged to have 12MP primary camera and 4.7MP front shooter. The 12MP camera is a right choice for this Smartphone but its an extremely appreciable move from Samsung to use 4.7MP front camera. Otherwise majority of Smartphone’s possess either 2MP or 0.3MP front shooter. This 2MP is average but doest tastes good at times. Also with increasing technology and features, specifications also need to be maximised. There’s no fun in getting stuck at a particular specifications and it’s essential to change the trend with time.

The vast range of sensors is also present which include accelerometer, barometer, gyro meter, compass, proximity sensor, light sensor, etc. It still remained mystery, whether this Smartphone will be made compatible with 4G or not. However rest of the connectivity options are made available on this Smartphone just like the other models. These include Bluetooth, WIFI, GPS and NFC. This Smartphone’s future looks directly trapped in the hands of Google. If they would made Android L available for Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 then it will be a great hit in the market otherwise it’s just going to act like a normal Smartphone with a bigger display. Just like the Sources said, it is going it be a low end variant of Galaxy Note.

As per the latest reports, Indian Smartphone developer Xolo is about to burst out their solo performance in Smartphone world. After coupling with Microsoft for their first ever Android Smartphone which as been unveiled recently Xolo is currently working on their new Android Smartphone which will be featuring Hive UI. This Smartphone has been planned to be put forth in the second week of July. Sources have claimed some of the specifications of this unknown beast from Xolo.

Xolo - The next level


It will be flaunting a 5inch HD display countered with Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It’s going to operate on an octa core processor coupled with a 2GB of RAM. This is such an amazing coupling done by Xolo here. The octa core processor will really take this Smartphone experience farther beyond than we can imagine. It has also been claimed that there will be highly innovated modifications in over the Android. The Hive UI has been claimed to be based upon Kit Kat. The icons, themes and animations will be redesigned in this model of Xolo. The main screen of Xolo will be showing up with applications like Xolo Connect, Xolo edge, Xolo secure, etc. The latest hints from the Xolo official page gives us an idea the Hive UI will be extremely customisable. They had earlier cited that “there will be everything the way you want, muic will be yours, contacts will be yours”, etc. But the fact still remains veiled because this project hasn’t been finished yet but Xolo is still working on developing icons and themes. It will also update the play store of Xolo through which applications can be downloaded extensively.

There was no word made about the price of this beast but the specifications are too high end and price will obviously be little raised up. Surprising Xolo also released their first windows Smartphone Q900s. It briefly features a 4.7inch HD display, Snapdragon 200 quad core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 8MP and 2MP cameras. The battery is 1800mAh. The specifications suggest that this is a very basic Smartphone with a single good thing in it as 8MP camera rest of the features are basic. However the Hive UI if successfully implanted will take Xolo to the real new next level. This is because after extensive use of Android basic interfaces, everyone wants to feel and see something new now. No matter Android is still the best but a smart touch up can do a great job for Xolo and the price hiking for this Smartphone should be the rollercoaster ride for Xolo. The price needs to suit the Indian market at the first priority. Let’s see their next level in the next week.

ZenFone5 will be flaunting 8MP primary camera with resolution of 3264*2448pixels and additional camera features include auto focus, LED flash and geo-tagging. A 2MP front shooter will be available for video calling.

It looks like ZenFone5 is also following the trend of rest of the developers in the sense that 2MP shooter is being used extensively in mid range Smartphone’s and in some high end’s too. Asus has done the same thing. The too things where Asus ZenFone5 can compete with the global market is its Intel processor and newly redesigned interface. Otherwise the rest of the features are ordinarily same for all Smartphone’s in this range. So far the description of this Smartphone led us to the idea that there’s nothing special but it’s also a good Smartphone with overall good features in this line up.

Following the release of low budget kit Kat running Smartphone’s from Motorola and Micromax in the past week, Celkon has also laid its foundation in this category and has unpredictably bring out the cheapest Kit Kat running Smartphone in the market so far named as Campus A35K. This Smartphone is priced around Rs 3000 only which is very exceptional in the world of Smartphone technology and has given a great blow to the rest of low budget Smartphone developers. With such low prices the budget friendly Indian mindset, it is easy to see that Celkon want a piece of the pie for the Indian market. We will have to wait and watch how this develops over the period of time as the New Campus phone is ideal for students and techies who want a phone with latest OS but still very low of the spend factor.

Celkon Campus A35K

This Smartphone comprises of 3.5 inch display with screen resolution of 320*480 pixels which would look like a blurred image at thorough look because of such a low screen resolution but we are bind with the price tag it shows off. Its single core processor speed is clocked at 1 GHz with just 256 MB RAM which isn’t effective for running Android Kit Kat 4.4.2 but its mysterious that how celkon made it possible.

Internal storage capacity is 512 MB. But it won’t affect your Smartphone because its memory is expandable up to 32GB. Moreover it contains a 3.2MP primary camera along with LED flash and 0.3 MP front camera for video calling. This camera isn’t good enough to take nice pictures but still matches with the price. However 2G and 3G networks are available in this Smartphone which is nice for this range and at least one thing where we don’t need to compromise. Other connectivity options include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. A proximity and ambient light sensor is present where as it’s devoid of rest of the sensors.

It is backed with a typical 1200mAh battery which looks very low but it can make a day on soft usage because of its limited specifications but hard usage will result in its complete drainage with few hours. Battery capacity should have been little better but it looks like an indigestible fact under this range of price so we would have to live with it. Among all the specifications of this Smartphone the most essential feature it has got is Kit Kat 4.4.2 which made us to think about buying this Smartphone while as the rest of features are very compromising. Kit Kat is going to act as the chief reason for people to buy this Smartphone and it’s still better than buying a candy bar keypad phones priced above Rs 3000.
