Samsung will launch the Samsung Galaxy S4 on May 10 for India available either the same day or soon after via the online Samsung Store. The company has decided to keep the price of their newest flagship at Rs. 44999/- for the 16GB variant.
Here is the best part of the news, the Samsung Galaxy S4 set for India is the Exynos based Octa-core variant and not the quad-core as most were expecting. Although Samsung might change over to a quad core variant if the sales are slow as they were for the S2 in India and the company then launched a cheaper
Single core alternate chipset variant adding a G at the end of the model number.
Samsung has taken a similar strategy with the Samsung Galaxy S4 ( or plans to) with the company expecting good sales numbers based on the hype created by the launch. Post that they plan to shift to a quad core variant similar to the one in the US.
Apart from the chipset the Samsung Galaxy S4 also has a 5 inch 1920x1080p Super-Amoled display, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage for the Indian variant, along with a 13 MP camera at the rear capable of full hd 1080p video at 30fps.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 also has Android 4.2.2 along with the latest TouchWiz UI.
Just yesterday, we got some information on what the specifications of the rumored Motorola X Phone might be like and now, we have a leaked rendered image of the smartphone as well. Some anonymous tipster has sent a rendered image of the Motorola X phone to GSMArena and the tipster has sent along a list of specifications for the smartphone as well.
The list of specifications sent along with the render includes a 4.7-inch HD display (However, some leaks suggest a Full HD display) and says that the smartphone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The list of specifications also include a 4,000mAh battery and suggest that the screen on the Motorola X Phone would be protected by Gorilla Glass 3. However, the rumored specifications which were leaked yesterday suggest that the screen on the Motorola X Phone would be protected by sapphire glass, which is three times more durable than Gorilla Glass.
The leak says that the Motorola X Phone will be IP57 certified, which means that it will be resistant to dust and water, just like the Sony Xperia Z while it also suggests that there will be no micro-SD card slot on the device, indicating that we might see the Motorola X Phone with various storage options like 16GB or 32GB (or even 64GB).
We don’t yet know if the rendered image is real or it’s just some creative mind working overtime, but we have our doubts about it because as you can seen in the image, the smartphone misses the earpiece and there is a time difference of 2 minutes between what the widget shows and what is seen on the notification bar.
Though the authenticity of these leaks is questionable to say the least, but all these leaks suggest that the Motorola X Phone is indeed coming and you never know, Google might surprise us at Google I/O which is scheduled to take place in May.
Remember the Google Nexus 7 tablet? That amazing piece of hardware at a jaw-dropping price from Google? Yes, that. Well, if you’re still interested in buying the tablet and have been waiting to get your hands on one of those here in India, we have good news for you. The 16GB Wi-Fi version of the Google Nexus 7 is now available via the Google Play Store in India for a price of Rs.15,999 and Google promises the delivery by April 5 if one places an order today.
We’re not too sure if this development has anything to do with Google’s chairman Eric Schmidt’s visit to India just a few day ago, but while he was in Delhi, he did apologize for the availability of Nexus products in India. Schmidt added that the company has been working to bring Nexus products in India but there are a few problems for which the company still has to find a solution.
One of the problems mentioned by Schmidt pertaining to the availability of Nexus products in India is that they are more expensive than what they should be, and some of the reasons for that could be transit costs and import duties. Other than that, Schmidt also mentioned about certification issues which the Nexus products have to face here in India.
If you can’t recall the specifications of Google Nexus 7, here they are- The Nexus 7 sports a 7-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels and is powered by the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM. With such raw power under the hood, the Google Nexus 7 is still one of the best tablets available in the market today. The version of Nexus 7 available on the Play Store is the base version, which comes with 16GB of internal storage and Wi-Fi connectivity. There’s also a 1.2 megapixel camera on the front and the tablet runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out-of-the box, but can be upgraded to Android 4.2.2 as soon as you take it out of the box.
However, the same version of Nexus 7 retails for $199 in the US but again, Eric Schmidt did mention that the Nexus devices in India are more expensive than what they should be, so we can’t really complain. Still, if you wish to buy a tablet for yourself, the Google Nexus 7 is one of the best options available at present. If you want to buy the Nexus 7, you can book one here.

t’s raining quad-core smartphones in India! Quite literally. It’s almost everyday that we see some or the other quad-core smartphone being launched in the country and surprisingly, the quad-core fad in India has opened the doors for various Chinese smartphone manufacturers as well.
After some Chinese manufacturers like UMI Mobiles and Zopo announced their quad-core smartphones in the Indian market, another smartphone-maker from China, Gionee has announced it’s quad-core smartphone, the Gionee Dream D1 in India but unlike any other Chinese quad-core smartphone, this one has impressed us at the first glance.
The reason why we say it, is because of the beautiful 4.65-inch Super AMOLED plus display with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution on the Gionee Dream D1, which is incredibly stunning for a smartphone in this range. To be honest, we fell in love with the display as soon as we powered up the smartphone.
The Gionee Dream D1 is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Cortex A7 processor along with 1GB of RAM and PowerVR Series5XT GPU. With such raw power under the hood, we expected a smooth operation on the Dream D1 and whatever time we’ve spent till the smartphone, it holds up quite nicely for the most part.
The back of the Gionee Dream D1 gets an 8 megapixel camera with LED flash but one big downside of the device here is that it only supports video-recording in 720p, while some of the other budget quad-core smartphones in the Indian market offer 1080p video recording as well. At the front, you get a 1 megapixel camera to fulfill your video calling needs.
Just like other budget quad-core smartphones available in India, the Gionee Dream D1 too sports dual-SIM card slots. Another problem we faced with the device is the lack of internal storage on the device, which is listed at 4Gb, but only about 1GB is available to the user.
|Processor||1.2GHz Quad Core|
|GPU||PowerVr Series 5XT|
|Primary Camera||8 Megapixel|
|Secondary Camera||1 Megapixel|
|Main Display||4.65-inch Super AMOLED Plus HD display|
|What We Like||Display, Looks|
|What We Don\’t Like||No Full HD video recording|
