Samsung unveils Galaxy Camera Wi-Fi, drops prices

  Samsung’s Galaxy Camera is a beautiful merging of point-and-shoot digital cameras and mobile devices, combining Android and a touchscreen with a camera that far surpasses those of smartphones. Today, the Korean company has announced the Wi-Fi-only Galaxy Camera, which drops both mobile broadband and the price tag, offering users who want a more budget-friendly option with no need for on-to-go connectivity an option.
 The Galaxy Camera Wi-Fi is the same as the previously-released model, except that it lacks a 3G/4G mobile connection and instead offers dual-band wifi. Obviously, this means those who purchase this model won’t have the advantage of being able to share their images no matter where they’re located, instead having to rely on a wireless Internet connection. Still, for many users this isn’t a big deal, and so the drop in price is a nice perk.
The Galaxy Camera features a 16.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 23mm wide-angle lens, and 21x optical zoom. The ISO range is 100 to 3200 in addition to an auto option. The camera saves images in JPEG format, allowing images taken at 12-megapixels, 2-megapixels, and 1-megapixel to have a wide-screen aspect ratio. Movies can be recorded in full 1080p HD at 30fps, and at 768 x 512 in slow motion (120fps).
As for the Android aspect of the Galaxy camera, there’s a 4.8-inch HD Super Clear display and a 1.4GHz quad-core processor. Internal storage is 8GB, but there’s a microSD slot with support for SDSC, SDHC, and SDXC for more storage space. The camera runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and comes loaded with a host of Google services, including YouTube, Maps, Talk, Places, Chrome, and the Play Store, among others.
No word on pricing yet.

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for
Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d
