After exhibiting the giant 85-inch 4K display, also called UHDTV (Ultra High Definition TV), earlier this year, Samsung is towering the competition bar with a positively gigantic and whooping 110 inch version.
This 110 inch version of 4K display has the same framed floating panel design, the new 110 inch model goes on sale today in China, Middle East and a few other European countries.
The 110 inch beast is the largest of its kind having 2.6m breadth and 1.8m vertical height. It’s bigger than a king-size bed (Not completely though 😛 ).
The features on the 110 inch display will be similar to the comparatively smaller 85 inch display, with no additional features.
There is no call on the pricing of this model but still if you have to guess, know that a common man would not be able to afford it as per our prediction.
Features of UHDTV
Quadmatic Picture Engine
Micro Dimming Ultimate
Precision Black Pro
Picture Engine: 3D HyperReal engine
Digital and Analog Clean View
120W (20W x 2, Woofer 20W x 2, Centre 40W)

Smart Hub 2.0

Obviously, with the price it will have, this product is certainly not for an Indian unless you are a electronics fanatic. It will be exciting to see how the sales go around in India.

LG Flex is literally flexible. Instead of being rigid and built with glass and hard plastic, like any other smartphone you know about, it is made up of curved components. This means that it may literally be bent and even pressed.
It is possible to stand on this phone and not break it (be careful in testing that theory). It is a very slim phone that is flexible but still stiff. The images of it bending over which are available online are a bit of an exaggeration.
It is very light and very slim and it is built with plastic substrates that make it flexible. In other words, it is curved and hard, but flexible (it is hard to describe without having a play with it yourself).
Check out: iPad Air Features, Review and Pricing in India
There are exceptions in bending, the camera, battery or the processors, so look at it as a smartphone that is simply more durable (or less breakable) than other devices.
And, a phone that has a bit of a curve to it. The battery is placed within the curving flex phone by the use of stack and folding technology.
It reduces the pressure that is put on the battery when some one tries to bend it or tries to sit on it by mistake. It makes it harder to damage the battery with bending forces.
Features and Review
The LG Flex has the Android 4.2.2 operating system. Its dimensions are 6.32″ x 3.21″ x 0.31″, that is 160.5 x 81.6 x 7.9 mm. It weighs 6.24 Oz which is 177 gm.
It has a 6″ display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The pixel density is 245 pixels per inch which is pretty standard but not good enough compared to iPhone 5S and Google Nexus 7. It uses P-OLED multi touch display. Except for the curved and flexible screen, nothing else is really impressive.
The LG Flex Sensor
It comes with a proximity and light sensor. I wish they had inculcated a new type of sensor that can take the advantage of curved display and made it more interesting.
It has a battery that is 3500 mAh, which is a HUGE battery capacity for a phone. It is far bigger than most which is going to guarantee you a nice long standby time as well as very good talk time.. The battery is one of the most inflexible things on a phone.
You can create bendy and squash-able components for many types of phone internals. But, the battery is where they have really done well to make sure it does not split or burst when compressed or bent.
It powers the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 processor. The processor is a quad core which means it has four processors. It has a clock speed of 2260 MHz. Its graphics processor (GPU) is the Adreno 330.
It is 2048 MB (2 GB) RAM. It can handle most of the tasks that you do at it. It also comes with a gigantic 32 GB of storage, which is less compared to a 64 GB iPhone model.
It has notifications such as haptic feedback and it has musical MP3 ringtones and polyphonic ringtones. It has vibration mode, flight mode and silent mode as well as speakerphone which you will find in all other smartphones too. It comes with digital compass and an accelerometer sensors.
The camera featuring on LG Flex is a 13 mega pixel camera. It is very impressive and is currently the biggest mega pixel that any smartphone has. Samsung were the first to install one on a popular flagship phone, and it is now the highest mega pixel you are going to find on latest device.
It has a 1.2 MP front facing camera and Flash LED along with the rear camera.
Network and communications
It uses GSM: 900, 850, 1900, 1800 MHz and has LTE (Long Term Evolution) and HSPA compatibility. It also has EDGE and GPRS compatibility and uses GPS and A-GPS. It includes Bluetooth 4.0 and has Wi-Fi: 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac. It also has USB 3.0 and microUSB support. It has a mass storage device and USB charging port at its bottom.
LG Flex Self Healing Demo:
LG Flex Cost and Availability in India
The keynote event of LG was held specifically to announce the LG G Flex in India but the launch is expected in February, 2014.
There is no clear comment on what price consumers should expect but as per our sources, it would be priced around Rs. 60,000 – Rs. 65,000 and it will also depend on the Dollar rate at the time of launch.
But the question to ask is, people in India already think iPhone is a costly smartphone, will LG Flex make through the consumer market in India? An official from LG said they are planning to launch just 500 units of LG Flex in the first quarter.
This device is pretty unique and different from existing devices, having a curved screen and self healing back, but the Android operating system isn’t quite modified for the hardware and taken its full advantage.
We should see an update on that soon. What do you think about this device? Is it as seducting as the iPhone 5S’s finger print sensor was?
Sony today launched the world’s first pen drives that are compatible with smartphones and tablet devices aiming at a market that is new for data storage devices.

Their locking caps will protect the connecting ports from damage and dust, says Sony. Sony also claims that the metal enclosure of these flash drives are ample durable to withstand everyday rough mobile use.
The cap of this flash drive are available in three different colours, namely, White, Black and Purple.

The rumoured announcement of the Sony Xperia ZU Togari phabletis just around and there have been more and more details coming in.
It is going to be announced on 25th June, and it is expected that the Xperia ZU would be coming with the Android 4.2.2 and the new TimeScape UI, which is not much laggy as it was previously.
You would be seeing more than the normal UI that has been recently available for most of the Sony high-end smartphones, especially the Sony Xperia Z, the addition of Android 4.2.2 would be a good one along with more exciting stuff. The new lock screen, SocialLife, STAMINA Mode and new Small Apps are a few things that would attract the users.
It’s going to be named the Togari Phablet, and the name Phablet would easily make you guess how big the screen size would be.
What’s included on the front side is the 6.44-inch 1080p Triluminos colour display, and on the back there’s an 8-megapixel camera.
The Xperia ZU is going to come with the X-Reality Engine, an upgrade to the Mobile Bravia Engine 2 and additionally it would come with the IP58 certification and hence will be water-resistant (1m for up to 30 minutes).
The HTC One smartphone although looks very classy and contends well to be one of the best smartphones in the current smartphone market, it has got quite a lot of problems in itself.
One of the very common issue that several users have reported about, is the capacitive touch buttons which were not responding well. For most of them, it was until a several hits that the phone responded once.
The HTC One Issue
The capacitive touch buttons not responding to the touch. The issue worsens when a screen guard is used, and the touch response gets far lesser then.
Solve the HTC One Capacitive button issue
According to a few users who confirmed, the company HTC was sending out a software update which could help resolve the issue, but again this won’t work for everyone because the root cause doesn’t remain the same for everyone. The update that would arrive would be a 1.29.xxx.12 one with the xxx being your region code. We aren’t sure how widespread this update is as of now.
For example, 1.29.709.12(214.04MB) was an update sent to a user in Taiwan, which had the update notes including – “virtual button sensitivity adjusted”.
This one is just a trial to see if it really works and if the issue gets resolved quite a bit if the first one didn’t work out for you. You need to get a factory reset done on your HTC One. Here’s how you can do it.
1. Slide the Notifications panel open, and then tap Settings.
2. Tap Backup & reset.
3. Tap Reset phone.
4. If you also want to delete media and other data on HTC One, select Erase all data.
5. Tap OK
If at all these don’t work, the final option you would have to do is to take the advantage of your warranty, given through your seller or the carrier and get the device replaced or repaired.
The Cupertino company Apple launched its second iteration of iPad mini, the iPad mini with Retina display, also called as iPad mini 2 along with the 5th generation iPad Air.
