IFA 2016: Samsung unveils the Gear S3 Classic and Gear S3 Frontier w/GPS, Water resistant,LTE and Tizen based.

 Samsung Galaxy S3 Classic

Samsung Galaxy S3 Frontier

Samsung Expands Smartwatch Portfolio with Gear S3.

Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. today unveiled the Gear S3, a striking and innovative smartwatch that further solidifies Samsung’s leadership in the wearables category. Inspired by traditional timepieces and the art of watchmaking, the Gear S3 combines timeless design with the latest in mobile technology, including IP68 water resistance, mobile payments*, LTE connectivity*, and built-in speaker and GPS, making it the ideal addition to any watch collection.
 
Samsung Gear S3 is available in two bold designs to suit different users’ lifestyles: frontier and classic. Inspired by the active explorer, the Gear S3 frontier evokes a rugged outdoor look with an enduring style that blends form and function. The frontier was designed to perform in any setting or environment – whether business or leisure. 

The Gear S3 classic pays homage to the minimalist, elegant style found in the most iconic timepieces. The classic was designed with meticulous attention to detail – with its size and shape chosen to attain the same consistency and balance of a well-crafted luxury watch.
 
“With the Gear S3, we continue to build on our wearables heritage of offering diverse choices to enhance consumers’ unique lifestyles,” said Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing and Wearable Business, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “Samsung Gear S2 achieved meaningful progress in the smartwatch category with a personalized watch face and a versatile rotating bezel that provided an intuitive smartwatch experience. 

Now with the new Gear S3, we expand our Gear collection and introduce not only a great smartwatch, but a great watch. With smart capabilities and sophisticated, elegant design, the Gear S3 marks a significant addition to our smartwatch portfolio.”
 
Speaking from the Gear S3 Showcase at IFA in Berlin, Ariel Adams, of ‘aBlogtoWatch’ commented: “I’ve always had a fascination with the intricate details found on luxury watches. With the Gear S3, Samsung is honing in on the level of craftsmanship that helps define fine watches – from the intuitive rotating bezel to the contrast surface finishing. The Gear S3 is a smartwatch that gives watch lovers a compelling reason to consider a device that marries traditional design and digital technology.”
 
In a quest to uncover what truly defines a watch, Samsung drew inspiration from manufacturers around the globe, paying particular attention to the skills and craft of assembling a delicate, yet highly complex timepiece. Influenced by the craftsmanship of traditional watches, the Gear S3 was created based on intensive research and surveys from consumers, industry leaders and watch experts all around the world. 

Every feature, from the circular bezel to the premium finishing and buckles, has been reimagined to elicit the look of a classic timepiece. In addition, the Gear S3 is compatible with 22mm watch bands so consumers can easily personalize their watch to match any outfit or special occasion.
 
“With the Gear S3, we sought to integrate tradition and technology, bringing to the forefront an immensely intelligent smartwatch. The large watch face was inspired by styles emerging from the world’s most premium watch brands. A classic timepiece combined with the latest innovations in technology, the Gear S3 is bound to withstand the test of time,” said Yvan Arpa, the Switzerland-based luxury watch designer, who was involved in the Gear S3 design process.
 
In addition to its sleek look, the Gear S3 meets IP68 standards for water resistance and offers military-level durability so consumers can get through their day, regardless of weather conditions. For the first time on the Gear series, the Gear S3 features Corning® Gorilla® Glass SR+, which is specifically designed for wearable devices to provide a tougher, more scratch resistant and crisp display.
 
The 16 million colors full-color Always On Display (AOD) and Super AMOLED technology further differentiates the Gear S3 from other smartwatches. The AOD always shows the time rather than automatically fading to black, embodying a sophisticated watch face that mimics the look and feel of luxury analog watch.
 
The Gear S3’s signature rotating bezel has been enhanced with new features. Without touching the screen, users can accept or reject a call or snooze an alarm. In addition, by writing on the display, messages will automatically convert to texts. Users can also create short reminders and to-do lists to manage even the most hectic schedules with the Reminders application.
 
The Gear S3 puts convenience at the flick of the wrist, allowing users to leave their smartphone behind when they don’t need it on-hand. The built-in GPS functionality enables users to accurately monitor their daily fitness activities while the Alti/barometer and Speedometer allow users to track everything from altitude and atmospheric pressure to sudden changes in weather, distance traveled and speed.
 
Never miss another phone call with LTE connection* making its Samsung smartwatch debut on the Gear S3 frontier. Additionally, with the built-in speaker, users can activate voice messaging and listen to their favorite tunes. With a battery that lasts up to four days on a single charge, users can enjoy their music, make calls and show off their stylish smartwatch longer.
 
Now Gear S3 users in select markets can use their smartwatch to make a purchase almost anywhere they can swipe or tap a card with Samsung Pay for Gear S3.* Samsung Pay, with Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) and Near Field Communication (NFC) support, means users can easily register a credit or debit card and use it to make mobile payments. Samsung Pay slims down users’ wallets and makes payments accessible on their wrist.
 
The Gear S3 was designed with consumers’ safety in mind. In case of an emergency, users can activate the SOS and location tracking capabilities to alert family, friends and emergency professionals about crisis situations, even when their phone isn’t in-hand.
 
Consumers can access a diverse range of apps, including fitness, music, news, sports and travel apps – all optimized for the Gear lineup of devices including the Gear S2 and the Gear S3. With a variety of customizable watch faces available for download, users can personalize the circular UI to fit their lifestyle. 

Select apps and watch faces will be available for download directly from the Gear S3 without the need to first download on a smartphone. Through an open collaboration with developers and partners, Samsung continues to enrich its wearables ecosystem and provide users with a unique smartwatch experience.
 
Thanks to a special partnership with Arik Levy, renowned artist and industrial designer, Samsung will introduce artistic watch faces and strap designs. Arik Levy is best known for his sculptures – such as his signature Rock pieces, unique installations and limited-edition designs, all of which are rooted in his belief that "the world is about people, not objects."
 
Arik Levy commented: “It was interesting and fun to collaborate with Samsung on creating unique and evolving watch face concepts and watch bands for the Gear S3. Inspired by my artwork, installations and sculptures, we created features that not only technology-savvy consumers will love but also those who place a high value on art, design, freedom of the mind and aesthetics.”
 
The modern watch faces and bands designed by Arik Levy will be introduced later this year through select channels.*
 
Adding to the Tizen ecosystem, Samsung introduces the integration of BMW’s personal mobility companion with the new Gear S3 – helping users stay on time, in touch and in control while further enhancing the connected automobile experience. With the BMW Connected app*, users can get alerts when it’s time to leave for their next trip, check their fuel level, unlock their BMW and more – all directly from the Gear S3 watch face.
 
For the first time ever on a smartwatch, the Samsung Knox Tizen Wearable SDK will be available to third-parties, enabling management capabilities and the development of customized applications for Samsung’s wearable ecosystem. With the Samsung Knox security platform, the Gear S3 will enable broader enterprise business opportunities.

Intel announces 7th Gen Core Processors. Press Kit. Video.













Press Release:

New 7th Gen Intel Core Processor: Built for the Immersive Internet.

(Credit: Intel Corporation)

Navin Shenoy is corporate vice president and general manager for the Client Computing Group at Intel Corporation.
The way we interact and connect with each other has evolved. It’s richer and more immersive, as video has become an increasingly important medium we use to enhance our conversations. The emergence of 4K Ultra High-Definition, 360-degree video, and virtual reality has dramatically widened and deepened our vantage points.
These trends in how we consume and create content, in how we communicate and interact, reflect what we at Intel call theimmersive internet. And the best way to take advantage of the immersive internet is on a computer with the performance to deliver a lifelike experience. People need the power to view, the power to create and the power to play – something that the PC is uniquely designed to do.
To power these experiences, today I’m excited to unveil the new 7th Gen Intel® Core™processors. Built for the immersive internet, this new generation of processors leverages our long-standing performance leadership and adds unmatched new media capabilities.
Our 7th Gen Intel Core processors show advances across the board:
Faster and more responsive: Intel’s engineering and manufacturing teams have drawn even more out of our 14nm process technology with what we call 14nm+. 7th Gen Intel Core delivers up to 12 percent faster productivity performance1 and up to 19 percent faster web performance2 over our previous generation from just a year ago.
Access to premium 4K UHD content: With new computers powered by 7th Gen Intel Core, TV and movie fans will have access to premium 4K UHD content streaming from studios like Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and providers like FandangoNOW. This is just the beginning as we see 4K UHD content go mainstream over time. We’re excited about some additional content announcements in the next few months, so stay tuned.
Opens a world of user-generated 4K UHD content: People can now view the 4K UHD content being shared on sites like YouTube and watch for longer on 7th Gen Intel Core based systems. But they also have the power to create, edit and share their own 4K UHD and 360-degree clips up to 15 times faster3 than on a 5-year-old PC thanks to the work we’ve done under the hood with our new media engine.
Gaming on the go: Gamers will see a threefold improvement in graphics4 compared to a 5-year-old PC, meaning you can play popular games like Overwatch™ anytime and anywhere on a thin, light laptop. And with Thunderbolt 3 support coming to more devices, gamers can use a single cord to plug in an external graphics dock and 4K UHD monitors for top-line gaming performance.
Powers the thinnest and lightest devices ever: Just compare what is available now to a 5-year-old PC, and it’s obvious how far we’ve come. Some of the new 7th Gen Intel Core PCs are thinner than a phone, with the full performance expected from a PC!
We are incredibly excited about the strong partnership with our OEM customers and expect more than 100 different 2 in 1s and laptops powered by 7th Gen Intel Core to be available starting in September through this holiday season.  We will share more on the rest of the 7thGen Intel Core family for desktops and enterprise PCs early next year.
To say we are excited about our new 7th Gen Intel Core family is an understatement. I don’t think there has ever been a better time to check out what a new Intel-powered PC can do.

IFA 2016: LG Expands U.S. Audio Line With Portable Bluetooth Speakers Designed For Use At Home Or On The Go.



New LG Bluetooth Speakers Pair Versatility with Premium Sound for an Enhanced Listening Experience Anytime, Anywhere.

LG Electronics (LG) is expanding its portfolio of portable Bluetooth-enabled speakers with a lineup of three new models set to debut at IFA 2016 in Berlin next month. Equipped with cutting-edge features and boasting sleek, innovative designs, the new LG portable Bluetooth speakers (models PH2, PH3 and PH4) serve as versatile audio solutions for all listener types. Everyone from audiophiles to casual listeners who need portability to match their active lifestyle will find a model suited to their needs.

"LG's new line of Bluetooth speakers combine powerful sound performance with compact, portable design," said Tim Alessi, senior director, product marketing for home entertainment at LG Electronics USA. "Understanding the busy lifestyles of many of today's consumers, we sought to create a diverse lineup of audio products that deliver a seamless listening experience in any situation or setting."
For listeners seeking portability and durability, the PH2 and PH4 Bluetooth speakers deliver on both. Weighing less than half a pound, the resilient, splash proof and compact 2.5-watt PH2 (3.8 in x 1.5 in) is designed to bring high-quality audio with a rich, deep bass to even the most active users – perfect for those who enjoy hiking, cycling and everything in between. 
It offers a sturdy connected strap that makes it easy to attach it to a variety of surfaces or to carry with you on the go. Plus, it offers subtle lighting for a unique, sophisticated style.
The slightly larger 16-watt PH4 (2.5 in x 3.1 in) delivers complex, powerful and rich sound, making it ideal for outdoor gatherings like camp-outs or barbecues or even around the house. It features 360-degree sound and a rich, deep bass provided by dual passive radiators. 
Its compact, sleek form factor, along with a connected strap, makes it easy to take the PH4 on the go. Plus, its water resistant design makes it durable enough to withstand splashes of water, sweat or anything else users might encounter in the great outdoors.
The 3-watt PH3 (3.5 in x 4.9 in) speaker offers a unique design statement that enhances the décor of any room in the house or can add ambiance outdoors. Its sleek, candle-like design is available in three colors and features five different multicolored lighting modes. 
The lights of the eye-catching PH3 allow it to instantly set the mood no matter where it is placed – from night tables to garden terraces. This combination of rich audio and vibrant lights sets it apart from the competition by allowing it to deliver illuminated music that reaches every corner of a room.
The entire lineup's 360-degree omni-directional output delivers outstanding, consistent audio that users can enjoy no matter where they are. Equipped with the Bass Boost feature, the PH2, PH3 and PH4 speakers boast crystal-clear sound in any setting, even when users are engaged in the most demanding physical activities. 
Additionally, the Single and Dual Passive Radiators of the PH3 and PH4, respectively, increase sound quality and bass output, giving them audio abilities that far exceed most speakers their size. Furthermore, built-in long lasting batteries – up to 6 hours for the PH2 and as long as 10 hours for the PH3 and PH4 – offers enhanced portability and versatility.
From a connectivity standpoint, all three speakers are equipped with auxiliary input ports to allow users to connect to devices without Bluetooth compatibility. This feature makes it possible for users to enjoy audio content from older devices such as MP3 players or CD players. For those with Bluetooth connectivity, the speakers' advanced Multipoint connectivity gives them the ability to simultaneously connect with two different Bluetooth devices, giving multiple users the ability to control audio output at the same time.*
LG's new Bluetooth speakers are scheduled to launch at U.S. retailers nationwide this fall, and visitors to the LG Booth at IFA 2016 in Berlin will have a chance to experience the new lineup first-hand. For more information, please visithttp://www.lg.com/us/portable-bluetooth-speakers.

The photo (attained by Yeah1) shows Lin in a cafe and the handset matches up exactly with what numerous leaks have repeatedly stated we should expect: an iPhone 6-inspired design with a dual camera system and a 5.5 inch screen size.
