LTE Multicast Being Tested By Sixteen Carriers in 13 Different Countries

Aug 28th AT 3:47 AM
  

lg-g3-ah-7

See that antenna up there on the Korean LG G3? It’s for TV streaming. We don’t have it here in the US, but we could sometime next year. The Global Mobile Suppliers Association has issued a new report that says sixteen wireless carriers in 13 countries are testing LTE Multicast, which will bring us live video over the air, at a significant decrease in capacity for wireless operators.

LTE Multicast is a way for carriers to stream video to multiple subscribers at the same time, over LTE. Current streaming standards require unicast streaming, that is, or a one-to-one video stream that is pretty taxing on bandwidth capacity. Multicast will let help with these capacity issues, as it relieves some of the pressure on the precious bandwidth that carriers don’t have enough of. Think about live sporting events like the Super Bowl, Stanley Cup Playoffs, or NBA Championship. LTE Multicast could allow for major events like those to be streamed to subscribers over a wireless network. It’s a pretty big deal.

The technology is still really new. Only KT Corp. in South Korea has rolled out a commercial version of LTE Multicast. South Koreans have great streaming TV service right to their cell phones. KT Corp. rolled out their Multicast network back in January. They’re still the only carrier in the world to make it available to their customers, but it won’t be that way for long. Verizon and AT&T here in the US are testing it, and are planning to roll it out sometime next year. EE is testing it in the UK, and Vodafone Germany is testing it too. Wireless operators in China, France, Australia, India, Germany, Netherlands, Philippines, Singapore, Portugal, UAE, South Korea, UK, and the US are all in some stages of LTE Multicast testing, with some if not all expected to roll it out in 2015.

The LTE Multicast standard will need a lot more support before it will take hold with consumers, but it does add significant benefit to carriers. We just have to find ways to use it. With licensing laws and restrictions being what they are, we’d probably be limited to broadcasts of additional video and content in stadiums while games are taking place, and in similar situations. It’s a pretty limited scope, one that telecoms might not find profitable.

LG G Watch R official specs revealed – release in time for Christmas

Aug 28th AT 3:45 AM
  

The LG G Watch R was only recently unveiled but now we have our hands on the official specs ahead of the IFA 2014 conference next week. In the official press release for the device, LG was keen to point out that it is the world’s first “watch-style” wearable device to feature a “circular Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display which utilizes “100 percent of the watch face”. Take that, Moto 360.

Carriers in China Will Be Ending Device Subsidies, High-end Device Sales to Suffer as a Result

Aug 28th AT 3:04 AM
  

china-mobile-logo

Talk of the end of carrier subsidies on high-end devices ending has been going on for years. So far, in the US not much has come of this talk except from T-Mobile. T-Mobile has, in a way, gotten rid of subsidies by financing the full price of a smartphone to their customers. However in China, all carriers are ready to cut the cord, and will make selling high-end devices there very difficult for OEMs.

A device subsidy works very well to sell devices. Some examples are in the instances of any iPhone or Samsung Galaxy device launch on a carrier. Normally, these devices would cost upwards of $800, but thanks to carriers fronting the majority of the costs, they would only cost the consumer around $100 or $200. This upfront cost from the carrier usually causes a steep plunge in profit margins during the quarter of any popular high-end device release. This is part of the reason why Chinese carriers have decided to get rid of subsidies altogether.

China Mobile has the most subscribers in the world, and they have announced that they plan to cut subsidy costs by $2 billion. The rest of the carriers in China are expected to follow suit with about $1.9 billion cuts in spending on subsidies. Another reason these changes have been decided upon by carriers in China is orders from the Assets Supervision and Administration Commission. Chinese carriers were reportedly asked to cut costs by 40 billion yuan ($6.5 billion) over the course of three years. This was asked due to carriers overspending in subsidies and advertising. The question is how this will affect high-end device sales?

So far, for T-Mobile the subsidy cuts has been working out fine, with consumers paying the full price of the device over a two year period. However, there’s no word on how carriers in China plan on cutting the subsidy plans. If they plan on just asking consumers to pay full price for a device, this could mean a drop in high-end device sales altogether. When a consumer is looking for a device, the price tag reading over $800 per device, could be daunting. Which is why consumers may turn to low-end devices instead. According to analysts from IDC, Tay Xiaohan told Bloomberg, “The reduced carrier subsidies and rising local competition will affect consumers’ reception for the new phones,” Xiaohan continued to say, “The impact will be greater on the higher-end smartphones in the market, which the [Samsung Galaxy] Note 4 and iPhone 6 fall under.”

What are your thoughts, would you be fine without carrier subsidies? Or do you prefer them? Let us know down below or on our G+ page.

Curved display SIM-equipped Samsung Gear S made official!

Aug 28th AT 2:03 AM
  

A report of a standalone Samsung smartwatch and another suggesting that Samsung would also release a smartwatch with a curved display have both proven to be true.

Samsung surprised us a little tonight with its announcement of the Samsung Gear S! While its Unpacked event is just around the corner, Samsung probably didn’t want to divert too much attention from the highly-anticipated Galaxy Note 4, and also likely wanted to pre-empt LG’s announcement of the G Watch R.

What makes the Samsung Gear S stand out from the G Watch R and the other smartwatches we’re likely to see at IFA 2014, other than the fact that it runs on Tizen, is that the Gear S isn’t a companion device, but can function independently of the smartphone to make and receive calls. That’s possible thanks to the SIM-slot on the back.

Of course, pairing with your smartphone, via Bluetooth, is still possible, and users can easily switch between syncing with their phones or using the smartwatch as a standalone device.

Samsung Gear S Curved Display Smartwatch-3
One of the key features of the Gear S is its 2-inch curved AMOLED  display, with a high resolution of 360 x 480. With everything else it packs, the Gear S is certainly an exciting device for its hardware, arguably more than for its software. You can check out the full list of specifications and features in the table below.

Samsung will make the Gear S available in October. It’s likely to be prioritized for Asian and European markets as they generally tend to play much nicer with unlocked, open hardware and they are easier markets for Samsung to enter initially.

Being a 3G device, the Gear S will work on T-Mobile and AT&T, but details on the US launch are still unknown.

The competition in the smartwatch space is certainly heating up, and it’ll be very interesting to see how consumers react to the Samsung Gear S.

Stunning LG G Watch R announced ahead of IFA!

LG
Aug 28th AT 1:56 AM
  

LG_G_WATCH_R1

This industry is ruled by those who bring out the best devices ahead of the competition, something LG seems to have a good handle on. The Korean manufacturer has been teasing a smartwatch for some days now. We thought we would have to wait until IFA to get a good look at it, but it seems LG has thrown us all a curve ball and announced the LG G Watch R ahead of next week’s event.

LG’s new smartwatch stands out for its unique design. Following only Motorola’s Moto 360, this is among the first Android Wear devices to come with a circular display. Furthermore, its casual aesthetics makes it very unique and will allow it to easily blend in any crowd or environment.

LG G Watch 2 G Watch R Circle

In fact, I would say the LG G Watch R is much more “normal looking” than the Moto 360. These press renders showcase devices that oddly resemble older Casio watches. It also helps that the stock watch face gives it a very classic look, but that is something you can easily customize if you so choose to.

Also interesting is the set of specs the LG G Watch R has to offer. Inside that beautiful body you will find a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, which is an outstanding chip for a smartwatch. Keep in mind this is the same processor smartphones like the Moto G currently use. Other specs are listed below.

lg-g-watch-r-2

LG G Watch R specs

  • 1.3-inch full circle P-OLED display
  • 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 4 GB of internal storage
  • Dust and water resistant
  • 410 mAh battery

While this smartwatch doesn’t look as glamorous as the Moto 360 in images, it’s made of premium materials. The strap is made of 22mm calf skin leather, which in turn holds a durable stainless steel frame. It’s also relieving to see this unit is dust and water resistant, a highly-requested feature.

This is quite a winner under our eyes, competing only with the best of the best. Price is still up in the air and LG is not ready to unveil such details, but the device should be launching in key markets by Q4 2014. We defintiely don’t expect it to be the cheapest, though. Are you signing up for one?

LG takes the wraps off of the G Watch R with full circle P-OLED display

LG
Aug 27th AT 11:11 PM
  

lg-g-watch-r-01

Did Samsung and LG plan their pressers together or what? Samsung unveiled the Gear S and LG officially unveiled the G Watch R. The G Watch R differs in that it’s Android Wear and it features a full circle Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display, which utilizes 100% of the display. This is very important because the Moto 360, which has been revered by many, doesn’t.

LG says the 1.3-inch circle (320 x 320) display “produces stunning image clarity even under bright sunlight and superb clarity when viewed from any angle.” It also features a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of storage, and 410 mAh battery. It’s also IP67 certified so it can be submerged in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes with no issues.

lg-g-watch-r-04

If you’re wondering if the quality of this watch will be as good as the Moto 360, wonder no more. The G Watch R will feature a stainless steel frame and will be offered with an interchangeable 22mm calf skin leather strap. It doesn’t appear they will offer a version with a metal strap, but since it’s interchangeable, you can take care of that yourself.

Availability will be early in the 4th quarter, which would mean sometime in October. No pricing was specified.

So what do you guys think? Did LG trump Motorola here?

LG READYING SNEAK PEEK OF NEW G Watch R AT IFA 2014

New Android Wearable First to Feature Full Circle P-OLED Display

SEOUL, Aug. 28, 2014 — Following the June release of one of the first-to-market wearable device powered by Android Wear™, LG Electronics (LG) is quickly expanding its wearable product offerings with the unveiling a new Android Wear device — the LG G Watch R at IFA 2014 in Berlin next week. The LG G Watch R will be the world’s first watch-style wearable device to feature a full circle Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display that utilizes 100 percent of its circular display.

The most eye-catching feature of the LG G Watch R is its 1.3-inch full circle P-OLED display that produces stunning image clarity even under bright sunlight and superb clarity when viewed from any angle. Powered by a powerful 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, the LG G Watch R offers 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM and a durable 410mAh battery. This Android Wear device will effortlessly run all compatible apps available in the Google Play Store and with an Ingress Protection Rating of IP67, the LG G Watch R is designed to run for up to 30 minutes in one meter of water.

With Android Wear™ at its core, the LG G Watch R delivers essential and relevant information exactly at the right time and place through voice recognition notifications. With a suite of LG health and fitness apps, users can also monitor their heartbeats with the support of the embedded photoplethysmograpgy (PPG) sensor. And the smart notifications provide users with important reminders of missed calls and messages, upcoming meetings, events, and local weather forecasts.

With an artisanal elegance, the LG G Watch R boasts a refined aesthetic that is reminiscent of traditional timepieces. Replete with a circular watch face, this elegantly crafted Android wearable has classic curves encased in a strong, durable stainless steel frame and carries a suite of watch faces that are accessible with a simple touch of the display. Its interchangeable 22mm calf skin leather strap also complements its overall aesthetic, giving it an air of modern prestige.

“What we’ve noticed in the year of the wearable is that this is a category that can’t be compared to smartphones and tablets,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Wearables are also accessories and consumers will want more than one to choose from. So we wanted to complement the modern design of the original G Watch with the classic look of the G Watch R. Customers can’t go wrong with either device.”

The LG G Watch R will be available in key markets early in the fourth quarter of 2014. Prices and details of availability will be announced locally at the time of launch. Visitors to IFA can see LG G Watch R up close in Hall 11.2 of Messe Berlin from September 5-10.

Samsung makes the Gear S official with curved display and 3G connectivity

Aug 27th AT 10:41 PM
  

Samsung Gear S_Blue Black_2

We knew Samsung would unveil a new smartwatch at IFA, but they decided to pull the curtain a little early. The Gear S will sport 3G connectivity and a curved Super AMOLED display. Samsung feels the 3G connectivity will give consumers the “freedom to live their life on the go,” but we’re not really sure why it’s necessary.

The curved display is probably the more important feature as it’s 2-inches (360 x 480) and features a conversation view and condensed font. According to Samsung, it will fit your wrist more comfortably than a traditional non-curved smartwatch. It’s also paired with a flexible wrist strap for more comfort.

Samsung Gear S_Pure White_2

The Gear S is Tizen based so it will only work with Samsung devices. It will include features such as turn-by-turn pedestrian navigation by HERE, 24 hours news and views service from The Financial Times, S Health, Nike+ Running, and more.

The full specs include a 2-inch (360 x 480) Super AMOLED display, 1.0 GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, WiFi: 802.11 b/g/n, A-GPS/Glonass, Bluetooth 4.1, USB 2.0, 3G (900/2100 or 850/1900) connectivity, 2G (900/1800 or 850/1900) connectivity, and 300 mAh battery (2 days). It will be offered in either Blue Black or Pure White, and it will be available globally in October. Unfortunately no pricing was specified.

Samsung Announces Tizen-Powered Gear S Smartwatch And Gear Circle Earbuds

Samsung Gear S_Blue Black_1

This is a story you've heard before - Samsung has announced another smartwatch. Not content with its current bevy of smartwatch offerings, the South Korean manufacturer has introduced the Gear S, a new Tizen-powered watch with a curved display that Samsung says "enhances the smart wearable experience."

The watch has a 2.0" SAMOLED display at a 360x480 resolution, a 300mAh battery, a dual-core processor, and a handful of sensors including an accelerometer, gyroscope, compass, heart rate monitor, barometer, and sensors for ambient light and UV.

Samsung Announces Tizen-Powered Gear S Smartwatch And Gear Circle Earbuds was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
