Samsung will hold its “Unpacked 5″ press conference during MOBILE WORLD Congress on Feb. 24 during Mobile World Congress where we will almost certainly see the GALAXY S5 for the first time. In previous years, Samsung has really stepped up its game with each launch of its new Galaxy S-branded smartphone, though this year we aren’t expecting as much of a huge jump on the hardware front, but instead a nice all-around boost to some of the latest specs we’ve seen in other flagships from competitors..WHAT YOU THING GALAXY S5 MAY INCLUDE??
Galaxy S5 Display
A recent report in The New York Times suggests that we can toss out any fantasies of crazy eye-ball scanning technology and super sharp quad HD display. That means that all of the rumors pointing to 2560 x 1440 screen resolution may fall flat, at least in the initial version of the GALAXY S5. There are still some rumors suggesting that quad-HD is in the cards, though. Alleged packaging leaked on Tuesday points to a “QHD Super AMOLED screen,” which means quad-HD make indeed make an appearance. The company is known for upgrading its devices after the fact (the Galaxy S4 LTE-A SKU, for example), so perhaps we’ll see a sharper version down the line.
Galaxy S5 Hardware
On the processer front, we’re expecting a bump to a faster Snapdragon 800 processer AnAnTuTu benchmark showed the device running that chip, and while it didn’t provide information on the clockspeed the increase in performance over the Galaxy S4 suggests there have been some tweaks to the processor and a bump from a Snapdragon 600 chip. Recently leaked packing also points to a 2.5GHz clockspeed. This suggests we won’t see the rumored 64 bit CPU just yet, but until Samsung has a real use case for it, that processor probably isn’t necessary. As for RAM and storage, we’re expecting 3GB of RAM and 32GB and 64GB models of the GALAXY S5..
Galaxy S5 Software
Samsung has been slow to a global roll-out of ANDROID 4.4 KITKAT to its existing portfolio of phones. However, the Galaxy S5 is expected to run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. Google has asked Samsung to tone it down on its TouchWiz customization options, though this handset was likely far along in development before that request was made. As such, we’re expecting a TouchWiz-heavy user interface, likely with some of the Magazine UX changes we saw introduced on the new Galaxy Note tablets introduced at CES and a flatter design, as some leaked software has suggested. The New York Times said Samsung won’t be promoting new software gimmicks this time around, so maybe we’ll see the elimition– or at least some deep hiding – of features that are present on the Galaxy S4.
Final Thoughts, Including Galaxy S5 Launch Date
We’re pretty confident at this point that we’re going to be able to play with the Galaxy S5 on Feb. 24. Right now it sounds like a pretty solid jump from the Galaxy S4, with a new processor, improved camera and better software. Samsung doesn’t usually announce devices until they’re ready to hit the market, so we’re expecting the phone to be available shortly after launch. Our best guess is a March or April launch. Also, considering the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S III launched on all major U.S. carriers, we expect that trend to continue

In the days since Flappy Bird creator Dong Nguyen removed the beloved avian hero-themed mobile game from Apple's App Store and Google Play store, a series of wannabes have flooded both stores.
While many of the ripoffs are harmless,security blogsare reporting that malware-filled versions of the game are popping up on alternative Android marketplaces.
On the surface, the malicious versions of the game look just like the original Flappy Bird, including the same app icon and gameplay. However, the infected apps are really trying to take over your device's ability to send and receive text messages in order to rack up charges by messaging premium numbers.
"All of the fake versions we’ve seen so far are premium service abusers — apps that send messages to premium numbers, thus causing unwanted charges to victims’ phone-billing statements," security-intelligence blog TrendLabs reported. The infected apps are especially prevalent in alternative Russian and Vietnamese app market, the blog said.

Hey Frirnds Now days Google has been fighting ANDROIDragmentation for a long time and while it seems like things started to improve, it’s still not good enough. A new allegedly leaked Android policy forces device makers to ship their products with the latest versions of Android, otherwise Google will not license it’s services to them.
If this is true, it means that all new Androidsmartphone and tablets will ship with the latest version, but the other problem still remains: updates. While most of the flagship smartphones already ship with the latest version, it takes companies months after Google releases a new Android version to update it.
- If this is true, it means that all new Androidsmartphone and tablets will ship with the latest version, but the other problem still remains: updates. While most of the flagship smartphones already ship with the latest version, it takes companies months after Google releases a new Android version to update it"Starting February 2014, Google will no longer approve GMS distribution on new Android products that ship older platform releases. Each platform release will have a “GMS approval window” that typically closes nine months after the next Android platform release is publicly available. (In other words, we all have nine months to get new products on the latest platform after its public release.)"
- Hey FriendsThis statement means that each Android version will be available for phone makers nine months after the new version gets released. So a phone maker can still get certification for Android 4.3 nine months after Android 4.4 gets released. This is still an improvement, but not really what customers were looking for.If a phone maker wants to release a smartphone runningan older version of Android, then Google will not allow it to use its Services Framework and Google Play.Hopefully this policy is going to decrease Android fragmentation, but we don’t expect it to be very significant and we have a good reason for this. A smartphone can get the certification months before being released and sometimes it can take even 6-9 months from certification to release, which means a new version is already released in the meantime.Thanx,
