HTC U11 gets new update, 1080p 60FPS video recording on board

A new update has started rolling out for the HTC U11. Coming in at about 663MB, the software upgrade should bump the software version to 1.27.400.9

There’s a nice new functionality aboard the latest update – users will be able to record 1080p 60FPS video clips after they install it. HTC vowed to include the feature earlier this year, so it’s nice to see the company fulfill its promise. Also included is the Android security patch for the month of August, as well as a bunch of system improvements which aren’t specified.

HTC U Life 11 to land later this year with 5.2-inch 1080p screen, SD-630 chipset?

Last month, we told you that HTC was prepping a mid-range handset code-named the HTC Ocean Life. This morning, more speculation about the device has leaked, including the alleged  name of the phone. Reportedly dubbed the HTC U11 Life, the mid-range model will be equipped with a 5.2-inch display carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. That compares to the 5.5-inch, 1440 x 2560 resolution display that rocks the HTC U11. While initial reports called for the Snapdragon 660 SoC to power the model, it now seems likely that the Snapdragon 630 will be found under the hood. This chipset comes with an octa-core …

Code reveals how the iPhone 8's resizable home key could look, tips 240fps slow-mo at 1080p

Among new HomePod firmware revelations about the upcoming iPhones, such as slow-mo video with 240fps at 1080p instead of 720p, and “MultiBiometrics” security, code diggers have found this gem – the iPhone 8’s virtual home button might be resizable, and there could indeed be a “function” area around it, as analysts predicted.
Developer Steve Troughton-Smith has made a deep dive into the HomePod firmware code with the specific goal to find any reference to an on-screen home key, as many analysts tipped the lack of a physical one on the iPhone 8. Lo and behold, he found …

Galaxy S8's funky screen resolution revealed, but phone may default to 1080p

A photo of what is presumably a Galaxy S8 display setting has leaked out, and it shows a display resolution change slider that goes from HD+ to WQHD+ resolution, with Full HD+ in the middle. That middle setting, however, is shown to be the default one, and we can’t help but think that Samsung may pull of with the S8 what it did with the S7 after the Nougat update.

With the official release of Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, Samsung fans were treated to a nice dessert in the form of over 20 new features and overhauled visuals. However, some users have also …

Nintendos Switch wont run Zelda at 1080p

If you’re the proud owner of a Wii U, you might be wondering whether the Switch is worth a day one purchase. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is coming to both, so what’s the rush, right? Well, the two versions have a few key differences.

Nintendo-Switch-1800p

In a statement provided to IGN, Nintendo confirmed that the Switch game will run at 900p on your TV, while the Wii U version will be stuck at 720p.

Switch owners will also benefit from “higher quality environmental sounds,” covering water, grass and ornate steps. These will be “more realistic and enhance the game’s open air feel,” apparently.

Otherwise, it’s the same experience. Nintendo says a few onscreen buttons will differ — inevitable, given the two platforms have different controllers — but that’s about it. In its statement, the house of Mario also revealed that both versions will run at 30 frames per second.

That will be a disappointment to some, who were no doubt hoping for a perfect 1080p/60fps performance. It should be stressed, however, that resolution and frame rate doesn’t determine a game’s overall visual quality. Art direction is far more important, and Breath of the Wild has it in spades.

Tips of playing 1080p .avi/.mkv files on Samsung Galaxy S4 on Windows 8.1/8

The Galaxy S4 comes with a wonderful display! Similarly to many high-end Android handsets this year, its diagonal measures 5 inches. Have you made up your mind to get one? If you get your new S4, one issues will bother you is the Galaxy S4 movie playback.

As you see, Samsung Galaxy S4 comes with 5″ big screen and full 1080p display is an ideal device for movie enjoyment. While, from the Galaxy S4 spec list, we can find Galaxy S4 can only play MPEG4, H.264, H.263, DivX, DivX3.11, VC-1, VP8, WMV7/8 files. But when you import MKV, AVI file into it for playing, you will find that Galaxy S4 gives no support for the videos. Here I share the tips about How to play 1080p MKV, AVI videos on Samsung galaxy s4.

Tip 1. Download a video player on your phone

Download a video player on Samsung galaxy s4 is the simplest way in order to watch most of the common videos on the handset without conversion, anytime and anywhere.

Pros: We can install video player like Mobo Video Player, MX Video Player, or Dice Player on the Galaxy S4, as they all can play MKV, AVI, WMV, MOV, FLV movies and videos on the device. So when you know this you’ll get it easy to play your favorite MKV, AVI or other formats movies or videos on your phone without conversion.

Cons: I cannot ensure smooth playback on Galaxy S4 all the time as like MKV, AVI are both container format with different video/audio codecs. They are a bit difficult to handle no matter for the built-in video player on S4 or the 3rd party video app.

Tip 2. Reformat MKV, AVI and other files with a video converter app

Pros: To have a powerful video converter app, you can reformat any type video to Galaxy S4 best video format. Plus, with a video converter, you can adjust the video, audio parameters to get a perfect output video with the best video, audio settings. You will not meet any video playback trouble on Galaxy S4.

Cons: You possibly need to spend money on a professional video convert tool.

If you wanna encode your video files, follow the below guide I share with you.

You can get one video converter from the market. aPubsoft Video Converter(or get the Mac version) is the one I recommend here. It can be used as an all-in-one video conversion app for Galaxy S4. Besides AVI, MKV, it can also help you encode/re-encode almost all 1080p/720p HD videos including VOB, MPG, MOV, TiVo, MTS etc. for Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S3 and other portable media devices with high quality and fast speed. Follow the steps below to transfer MKV/AVI movies to your Samsung Galaxy S4 for smoothly playing.

Step 1: Install and run the aPubsoft Galaxy S4 Video Converter to your PC, click “Add Video” or “Add from folder” to import your source AVI, MKV videos. Batch conversion is supported so that you can add multiple files.

Step 2: Choose output profile for Galaxy S4. Here I recommend you “Samsung > Samsung Galaxy S III Video (*.mp4)” which is a format specially designed for Galaxy S3 but also works for the S4.

Step 3: If you like, you can click on Settings you could easily set bitrate, frame rate, codec, channels, sample rate, etc to adjust parameters that affect video quality and file size for the video you prefer. Keep in mind that bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss, and vice versa.

Step 4: Hit the “Convert” button to start converting MKV/AVI to Galaxy S4 optimized MP4 videos.

After the conversion, you can click “Open” button to get the generated files and transfer the videos to your Samsung Galaxy S4 via USB connection or sync with Samsung Kies. Then, it will be easy work to play MKV/AVI files on Samsung Galaxy S4.

Best Of Windows and Android With i6 Air Tablet

Ever wished to dual boot both Windows and Android on your tablet? The Cube i6 Air Tablet may just be the thing for you. With its ability to efficiently run both Windows 8.1 and Google Android 4.4 KitKat and multitude of features, it surely packs quite a punch.

The Cube i6 Air 3G features a 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel IGZO display, an Intel Atom Z3735G Bay Trail Processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G, has an 8,000mAh battery, a microSD card slot, front and rear cameras.

Amidst pressure from Google and Microsoft, big companies had backed out from introducing dual-OS products. But now Chinese manufacturers like Pipo, Chuwi and Cube are taking this initiative by trying to procure free licenses for such products.

The i6 Air Tablet needs to be rebooted if one wishes to change the OS they are using, with a dedicated OS Switch Button in the Quick Settings Menu provided to allow the user to switch between the two OSs.

The folks at Liliputing.com got a chance to get their hands on the tablet running a pre-release version of Windows, but rest assured the device shall be shipped with a fully activated Windows 8.1 as well as Android.

One major tweak that the users may feel exists- is that the device can’t run both the operating systems simultaneously and thus one can’t run a Windows and Android app one after the other without waiting a little to switch from one operating system to other.
