It's time for another set of leaks on the upcoming Sony Xperia Z3, this time it's specs. We've seen peaks at the Xperia Z3 before, which looks to have a lot visually in common with its predecessor, the Sony Xperia Z2. The newly-leaked specs, some of which we've seen before, are also quite similar.
Samsung has announced that their 2014 Developers Conference will take place this November. The event will run from November 11-13th in San Francisco, taking place at Moscone West. While Samsung isn't yet talking about their specific plans for the Conference, it wouldn't be surprising to see updates on the Samsung Mobile SDK, S Health, and wearables.
Fleksy, the popular Android keyboard, has today pushed an update to version 3.0 which among other things opens up a brand new content store for the app. Available to its premium users, the Fleksy Store will provide themes and customizations for its users to download and dress up their keyboard to their tastes.
Initially 6 new premium themes are available and premium users will be able to claim a free bonus theme. Additionally, the standard look and feel of Fleksy has been updated with new colors and animations.
Samsung has released an video for its involvement with the ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals). The company really is a hit or a miss when it comes to marketing its own family of products. Samsung's attempt to take over Terminal 5 at Heathrow was met by a mixed reception, while its recent Galaxy 11 football-match-to-save-the-world adverts are just strange. It's pleasing to see the company has returned to simple, yet effective presentations.
The unlocked European Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) is today receiving an over-the-air update with "improved performance." It's the second major update for the European version of Samsung's 2014 flagship, the first having arrvied a month after the device first went on sale. The upgrade comes in two parts — first, a 194MB update, then immediately after, another 1MB update, both updates touting the aforementioned performance tweaks. After all that, you're bumped up to firmware version XXU1ANG2, which is still based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
Twitch for Android has just received a rather nice update, which introduces a new user interface alongside some other handy features to really ramp up the overall streaming (or rather 'viewing' in this case) experience. If you're not familiar with Twitch, it's a popular destination for those interested in video games where people can stream footage live from their computers and consoles for others to watch and enjoy.
While much of the interface is unchanged, when you dive into an application's page (or a book, or movie, or music) you'll see the big changes. New animations, new badges, an awesome header of the associated video (if one is included) are just the beginning, and the whole design of the new content pages looks to have been built from scratch with the new design language.
There are some changes to get used to, as well. Content descriptions now are displayed full screen, and this is where you'll need to look to see any change logs. This is also where you'll find information like version number, the last update time, or the number of downloads.
It looks very nice and has us pumped to see the next version where more of the design has been updated.
