Following the promising guidance offered earlier this month, Samsung’s first quarter results have answered many of the short-term questions that were being asked of the South Korean company’s mobile division. But it also shows the gamble the company is taking to be seen as successful, and if it will go double-or-quits with the Galaxy Note 6.

Samsung's Next Big Gamble Is The Galaxy Note 6 Launch Date

First up, the numbers. Revenue for the first calendar quarter of 2016 is up year-on-year, as is profit. Samsung’s current product mix all contributed to the growth. Its semiconductor business saw more efficient sales of value-added products, while the display business saw a drop in earnings due to the transition of many partners from LCD to OLED panels.

Samsung Electronics today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016. Samsung’s revenue for the quarter was KRW 49.78 trillion, an increase of 5.7 percent YoY, while operating profit for the quarter was KRW 6.68 trillion, an increase of 12 percent YoY… The first quarter saw overall earnings growth led by the early launch and successful sales of the flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, improved memory product mix, expanded 14nm supply of System LSI products and increased sales of OLED panels.

It’s the mobile division that everyone has been wondering about. Strictly speaking its the ‘IT & Mobile Communications Division,’ but no matter the name it saw a substantial rise in earnings both year-on-year and quarter-on-quarter (revenue up 6.6 percent year-on-year, profit up 42 percent year-on-year).

This was expected. Samsung brought forward the release of the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge from the traditional slot at the very end of the first quarter. Those three weeks of sales will have contributed heavily to the climb in revenue and profits.

Google’s 2016 Nexus phones are probably going to be unbeatable

Multiple reports have said that Google is already working hard on a couple of new Nexus handsets, undoubtedly the successors of the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. But rather than have LG and Huawei make them, Google supposedly hired HTC, the same company that made the iconic Nexus One.

A pair of new reports bring further evidence that Google may indeed partner with HTC for the 2016 Nexus handsets – yes, two devices are supposedly in the works.

First off, not only is HTC capable of making some impressive Android handsets – just look at this year’s HTC 10 – but the rumors come from sources who’re generally in the know about these type of things.

Evan Blass and Android Police independently came out with details about the new Nexus handsets.

Blass found out from his sources that HTC is making a pair of Android N handsets for Google, dubbed M1 and S1 internally. Meanwhile, a source told Android Police that Marlin and Sailfish are Google’s internal codenames for the new Nexus phones.

The blog also dug through the available code to uncover evidence of one of the two names: Marlin. Sailfish is a weird choice for Google considering that it happens to be the name of a rival mobile operating system, but the company is known for using fish names for its Nexus devices. Furthermore, Blass and Android Police’s reports certainly align: M1 might be the Marlin while S1 could stand for Sailfish.

What about the numbers you ask? Neither source explains the detail. But an earlier report suggested that HTC may have inked a three-year Nexus exclusivity deal. So there’s that.

It’s too early for specs, features or pictures. But the possibility of seeing HTC 10 variations turned into Nexus handsets is exciting. The HTC 10 is the most powerful smartphone ever and HTC'c hardware designs are always best-in-class. Add in stock Android and immediate access to software updates and you've got a pair of phones that might be unbeatable.

Apple Seeds Second iOS 9.3.2 Beta to Developers With Night Shift and Low Power Mode Update

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming iOS 9.3.2 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after the release of the first iOS 9.3.2 beta. iOS 9.3.2 beta 2 comes nearly a month after the launch of iOS 9.3, a major update that introduced Night Shift mode and other feature improvements, and three weeks after the iOS 9.3.1 bug fix update.

The second iOS 9.3.2 beta is available for download over-the-air or from the Apple Developer Center.

Like iOS 9.3.1, iOS 9.3.2 is a minor update that appears to focus mainly on under-the-hood performance improvements and fixes for bugs that have been discovered since the release of iOS 9.3. According to Apple's release notes, the beta features "bug fixes and improvements," including a possible fix for a major Game Center bug that has plagued iOS users for months. No outward-facing changes were found in the first beta, but we'll update this post with anything new discovered in the second beta.

What's new in iOS 9.3.2 beta 2:

Night Shift and Low Power Mode - iOS 9.3.2 beta 2 brings the return of a much desired feature, re-enabling the ability to use Low Power Mode and Night Shift at the same time. Early iOS 9.3 betas allowed Night Shift and Low Power Mode to work simultaneously, but it was removed in iOS 9.3 beta 4. With iOS 9.3.2 beta 2, you can turn on Low Power Mode when Night Shift is on.

Samsung Galaxy Note 6 & Galaxy S8 "Next-Gen" Camera Details Surface

Samsung is working on a new camera sensor with advanced next-gen specs and features

Samsung has produced some fantastic camera setups in the last few years aboard such gems as the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7, all of which have delivered consistently good quality and easy-to-use point-n-shoot photography, however, Samsung is now reportedly working on a brand new suite of camera sensor hardware to install inside its future devices, leading some (including us) to suspect it may appear on the Galaxy Note 6, or perhaps more likely the Galaxy S8 in early 2017.

Within the last year, there has been an interesting shift by manufacturers away from chasing ever-escalating megapixel ratings, with a new apparent consensus at 12MP being a nice point to settle for. Meanwhile, instead OEMs have been focusing attention on another set of numbers in order to improve image quality; things like the aperture rating being below f/2.0 (lower numbers mean a wider sized aperture and more light let into the sensor), and a larger size for the sensor itself (again, bigger sensors allow in more light).

Alongside this there's been a push for clever features like super-fast laser/hybrid autofocus, dedicated image signal processors, dual-sensor arrays with individual dedicated monochrome and colour sensors, and many more fancy pants things besides. In short, it's as if we're entering a new golden era of smartphone cameras where manufacturers have finally latched onto the idea previously espoused by photography buffs for some considerable time; that simply upping the MPs doesn't automatically equal better quality pictures.

However, now that said OEMs have got another set of numbers to chase, downwards for the aperture size and upwards for the sensor size, we may be looking at another arms race - and you know who loves an arms race; Samsung. Yes according to the rumour mill, specifically Photo Rumors and SamMobile, Samsung's next CMOS sensor will feature an f/1.4 aperture on a 1/1.7" sensor rated at between 18MP and 24MP. To put that in some kind of perspective, the Galaxy S7 is on a par with many of its peers with a 12MP camera module featuring an f/1.8 aperture and a 1/2.5" sensor size using a Sony sensor. Actually on aperture size alone Samsung is already towards the head of the pack for the wider offerings on the market, but this new sensor size isn't far off the venerable Nokia Lumia 1020 and its 1/1.5" setup.

It's not clear at this stage whether the camera sensor will be branded under Samsung's existing ISOCELL or BRITECELL brands which were trademarked over the last couple of years. Regardless, the upshot of all these changes, as we alluded to earlier, is more light being let into the sensor, potentially allowing for better dynamic range, less noise, finer details, and better low-light performance. The only possible downised is that in enlarging the sensor size the module will become bigger, which means we may see more of a bulge protruding from the bodywork.

He’s at it again. KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo (dubbed“the best Apple analyst on the planet”) has dug up new information on Apple’s increasingly controversial iPhone plans and this is perhaps the most radical of the lot…

Picked up by the ever reliable 9to5Mac, Kuo’s new report says Apple will completely redesign the iPhone. Out will go the ranges’ famed aluminium chassis and in its place will be the return of an all-glass enclosure. This will also be complemented by new cutting edge curved OLED display.

The only problem? These changes will come in 2017, not 2016.

Apple Leak Reveals 'All Glass' New iPhone

Yes, according to Kuo, Apple will finally abandon its ‘tick/tock’ external redesign / internal upgrade pattern for iPhone launches. Consequently the iPhone 7 will look largely like the iPhone 6 / iPhone 6S and it will be an ‘iPhone 8’ in 2017 where Apple will pull out all the stops.

Why? Kuo doesn’t speculate, but an obvious point that springs to my mind is that 2017 is the tenth anniversary of the iPhone.

Of course this wouldn’t be the first time Apple has used glass. The company enjoyed mixed success with the material in the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Cracked backs plagued these stylish phones, but Kuo argues that advances in toughening glass since then should address this. Glass would also be ideal for wireless charging and boosting antenna reception.

How much faith should we place in Kuo’s report? As its reputation suggests, a lot. In recent times the analyst has a near perfect track record. He broke news of the radical 12-inch MacBook, iPad Pro, the shift to 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, nailed every major feature of the iPhone 6S four months ahead of launch and revealed the iPhone SE, including its lower pricing.

All of which does little to inspire excitement in the iPhone 7 this year. Then again that is a phone which is likely to generate as many headlines for the feature it removes, as the big upgrade it adds…

Samsung Display Co. will begin supplying Apple with OLED display panels starting in 2017, reports The Korea Herald. According to the terms of the deal, which is worth $2.59 billion, Samsung will provide Apple with 100 million units of 5.5-inch OLED panels on an annual basis.

OLED panels eliminate the need for the backlighting used in traditional LCDs, potentially allowing Apple to cut down on the thickness and bezels of its iOS devices. OLED displays can also provide sharper images and brighter colors than LCD displays, but higher manufacturing costs and shorter lifespans are obstacles that Apple will need to overcome.

Samsung to Supply Apple With OLED Display Panels Starting in 2017

Rumors suggesting Apple and Samsung were close to establishing a partnership for OLED panels first surfaced in January, when Reuters reported Apple was seeking deals with both Samsung and LG Display. Later rumors indicated Samsung plans to invest up to $7.47 billion in OLED manufacturing equipment to fulfill orders for Apple. Apple may also plan to source additional panels from LG Display, AU Optronics, or Japan Display, three other display companies it has pursued deals with.

Early rumors said Apple would adopt OLED displays in 2018, but more recent information suggests that timeline has been pushed up. Apple is now rumored to be aiming to introduce the first iPhones with OLED displays in 2017.

A rumor from reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and information fromDigiTimes have suggested Apple plans to use 5.8-inch OLED displays for the larger-screened iPhone in 2017, perhaps for a wraparound display paired with a curved glass casing, but this information does not match up with today's report suggesting Apple has signed a deal for 5.5-inch panels.

According to Kuo, the 2017 iPhone will see a major design overhaul, which, if true, would see Apple breaking away from its traditional two-year upgrade cycle that includes a major redesign followed by a more minor internal update. Under that upgrade cycle, the 2016 iPhone would be the phone seeing a redesign, while the 2017 iPhone would feature the same design introduced in 2016.

Instead, Kuo believes 2017 will see Apple introducing a glass-backed device that includes wireless charging and biometric recognitions along with the aforementioned curved glass display and curved casing.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has issued a new report that again predicts Apple will switch to non-aluminum casing, with glass being the most likely candidate, for the majority of new iPhone models starting in 2017. If accurate, the design change would not apply to the iPhone 7 expected to launch this September.

Apple to Release iPhone With Glass Casing and AMOLED Screen in 2017

Specifically, Kuo believes that in order to differentiate iPhone from an increasing number of competing aluminum smartphones, Apple will return to iPhone 4s-like glass casing next year to allow for an all-new form-factor design. The switch would allow Apple to again "enhance the competitiveness" and innovation of iPhone.

The oft-reliable analyst adds that the ratio of new iPhone models using aluminum casing will likely drop from 100% currently to 40% or less, indicating that some aluminum-based iPhones will likely remain available for at least the short term. This could be older models like the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 series.

Kuo notes that some investors are concerned that glass casing would be too heavy or fail a drop test. However, the analyst believes that a return to glass casing will not be problematic for Apple, and the added weight in particular could be offset by the switch to lighter AMOLED screens in 2017.

Multiple sources have claimed that Apple will release an OLED-based iPhone as early as 2017, with possible suppliers eventually including Samsung, LG Display, AU Optronics,Japan Display, Foxconn-owned Sharp, and others. Kuo said at least one model could have a 5.8-inch OLED screen with curved glass casing.
