Ever since it was confirmed from the company that Galaxy Noye 8 will come to market, we have been seeing leaks and hearing rumors almost every week, but next to none official information was received. Well, it looks like Samsung may just have accidentally revealed the upcoming Note device.

The team behind Exynos (SoCs used in a lot of Samsung flagship phones) recently shared a teaser image. The photo was shared on twitter and it originally was meant to showcase the Exynos 8895 SoC. However, the phone in the picture did not look anything like S8, which is the current flagship.

To make the case stronger, the tweet photo shared looks very similar to the leaks that came out before. In a separate report, DigiTimes, reported that Samsung will be releasing its Galaxy Note 8 in September, which was previously suggested to be coming on 23rd August.

To brush-up your memory, Galaxy Note 8 will probably come with a 6.3-inch infinity edge display, 6GB RAM and up to 256 GB Storage. The phone will also be the most expensive Samsung phone made for mainstream costing well over $800. 

Considering Galaxy Note 7 was a disaster and it literally exploded in costume’s pocket, its successor will have a lot of expectations to live up to. Among with Google Pixel 2 and iPhone 8, Note 8 is probably one of the most hyped phones of 2017.

Android is one of the most popular OS in the world, ever since it initially launched in 2008, the now Google owned OS has made tons of record in terms of user base and device availability, Here are some interesting things that you may not know about Google’s mobile poster boy:

  • Google Didn’t create Android itself, it was bought from the company named “Android Inc” in the year 2005. Android was founded by Andy Rubin, who is known as the father of Android. 
  • Android was originally built as an operating system for digital cameras.  Later on, it has been changed to focus on smart phones.
  • The first Android phone to hit the market was HTC dream Aka T-Mobile G1, it was launched in 2008.

  • As of now, Androd is the most used operating system in the world. The market share of Android beat Microsoft’s Windows recently.
  • Android versions names are in Alphabetical order, we have reached to N which is Android 7.0 and talks are that Android O will be called Oreo. 
  • Name of each new Android version is based on the sweet treats or desserts. Take a look yourself: 
  • Cupcake- Android 1.5
  • Donut – Android 1.6
  • Éclair – Android 2.0
  • Froyo – Android 2.2
  • Gingerbread- Android 2.3

  • Nougat- Android 7.0-7.1
  • During the time Android came out to the limelight (Around 2007) Nokia made a statement: “we don’t see this [Android as a threat”, after bought and sold by Microsoft, the company launched its first Android phone in 2017. 
  • Also, In 2010, Anssi Vanjoki who was, at the time, CEO of Nokia, said that using Android is like a Finnish boy peeing his pants to stay warm.
  • Android is also being used as OS on Google Glass, Smartwatches and even some satalights launched in space. 
  • Samsung could buy Android in  2005, but the South Korean Phone manufacturer refused because they did not see any potential in the OS.

Bonus: First Android phone did not have 3.5 mm audio jack, so, Apple was not the first company to have ‘Courage’.

This is NanoPhone, World’s Smallest Phone to Date (It’s Cheap too)

E-commerce site Yerha.com today launched a new phone called NanoPhone. What’s interesting about the phone is that it claims to be the smallest phone to date. The phone weighs 30 grams and it measures a mere 94x35x7.6 mm in dimensions which really sounds tiny for a phone in 2017.

Don’t get your hopes for the phone to be a performance powerhouse though, with 32MB of RAM and a 1-inch TFT display that has a screen resolution of 128×96 pixels, you won’t be running any modern Android apps.  It looks like adding features to the phone was not the intention of the company anyway, as it does not run on Android.

The product page of the phone says, “…stylish, ultra-compact, anti-smart mobile phone” that’s meant for smartphone users who wish to maintain an active lifestyle having the opportunity to completely disconnect, while staying reachable and retaining other features, when required.” And the features reflect the intentions too, the phone has an MP3 Player, a 280mAh battery that should last for 4 hours of talk time, voice recording and FM Radio.

The phone charges via a MicroUSB and it has a 3.5 mm jack too, it supports Bluetooth and to my surprise, the tiny phone has 2 SIM card slots with a microSD expansion slot.

Should you buy the NanoPhone? I don’t think so, its $60 (Rs 3,940) price is cheap compared to modern smartphones, but I don’t think readers of Getting Geek can stop using their smartphone altogether and considering its battery life is not that great, using it as an emergency phone is a smart idea. Still, if you know someone who needs a smart basic phone it may be worth a look.

A couple of months ago, a phone Jelly came out, which claimed to be the smallest Smartphone that ran on Android. if you really fancy a small phone that is also a smarthpone, that one may be a better choice.

Samsung is Making a Smaller, Cheaper Version of Galaxy S8 Called Galaxy S8 Mini (Report)

Ever since it launched, Galaxy S8 has done a lot of improvements in Samsung’s public image after the Note 7 fiasco. In my opinion, Galaxy S8 is the most beautiful phone in the market with an unmatched display, good camera and for the first time, polished software. Probably the only con of phone is its expensive price.

Well, some recent leaks suggest that the South Korean smartphone giant is already working on a smaller and cheaper version of phone called S8 Mini or Lite (we don’t have confirmed name yet). A recent leak on winfuture.de suggested that the phone will run on a not-yet announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 840 SoC which will have 4 cores. If naming conventions work as expected, the S8 mini will be faster compared to current flagship, the S8 and the upcoming Galaxy Note 8.

Unfortunately apart from the processor name, and the fact that the phone will run on Android 7.1 Nougat, the leak did not reveal any significant detail.

Considering that there are far fewer details about the S8 Mini than upcoming Galaxy Note 8, I don’t think the phone will arrive anytime before the end of the year. For now, the company seems to be focussing solely on the Galaxy Note 8 launch on which may happen on August 28.

NEXT STORY: Behold, This is The New Google Pixel XL (Probably)

Behold, This is The New Google Pixel XL (Probably)

Looks like the first appearance of 2017 Google Pixel XL is this model reported by the Android Police. AndJust like this year’s LG G6 and Galaxy S8, its key feature is much smaller bezels – all the way better.

As the reports seem to put, a major disparity of the 2016 Pixels was its big bezel design. And Google has taken a brisk step to replace its big bezels with smaller ones. Android Police (the site where these images appeared first) also claims that LG will be the manufacturer of Pixel 2 in this term contrary to HTC taking the charge last year, which also demonstrates how much LG has focused on minute details with the G6.

The display is reportedly set at 6-inches with a 2:1 aspect ratio. Also, it seems that the smaller Pixel will remain quite the same other than a spec bump. So it will have a larger bezel and a 5-inch screen. This part seems weird in a way because a bigger screen in a small body is always more acceptable than a big screen in a body that ails your palm in operating it with one hand. Apart from that, another expected but lacking feature is a dual-camera setup.

In terms of specs, it seems that we are getting quite a nice deal: a previous leak from XDA guessed a Snapdragon 835 processor with 4 GB of RAM and 64/128GB of internal storage. So the machine seems right on most of the points. Nonetheless, it may be a seemingly disappointing news for many as following the line of iPhone, it looks like Google has not included a headphone jack with Pixel’s successor.

The smartphone will have squeeze sensitivity a la HTC U11 – despite not being built by HTC. This feature functions for easy interacting with the Google Assistant. It is yet to be known if it will be customizable or not.

Android Police also reports that the design may change till the gadget is unveiled. Still, it gives a good idea of what we may expect. Like last year, Pixel has created a lot of curiosity around. Now as we already know its specs and designs, waiting becomes more substantial.

It Looks Like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8 Just Can’t Stop Leaking

Among the OnePlus 5, iPhone 8, Galaxy S8 and some other phones, Galaxy Note 8 is probably one of the most important phones to come out this year. After the company revealed that the phone line won’t die, the phone has been leaked many times, including design, a render video and almost all specs of the phone . New images come from the seemingly promotional material of a case for the smartphone which gives a comprehensive vision of the soon-to-be-launched flagship from Samsung.

This week too some new images of the phone came out on Twitter by username @ZyadAtef12 New images come from the seemingly promotional material of a case for the smartphone which gives a comprehensive vision of the soon-to-be-launched flagship from Samsung.

The leaked images show that the power button is on the right side while the volume rocker and dedicated Bixby button are on the left. It seems that Note 8 is will have a 3.5mm headphone jack along with speaker grill. The images demonstrate Galaxy Note 8 with Infinity Display and from all sides including top and bottom suggesting a similar dual camera setup design with a horizontal orientation, as seen previous leaks. This means dual cameras are separated from fingerprint sensor by LED flash and heart rate monitor in the middle.

Th smartphone is expected to feature a 6.3-inch display and it will run on a Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895 SoC with 6GB of RAM to run Android 7.1. The dual camera setup will consist two 12-megapixel sensors adding independent OIS (optical image stabilization) for each lens. Dual cameras on the smartphone are in a horizontal orientation, unlike the upcoming Nokia 9 phone that came in limelight recently.

Reports have suggested that Galaxy Note 8 will be the most expensive consumer phone the company has ever created and it will come out around September this year, it will be interesting to see how the phone performs in the market now that Note 7 fiasco is over.

Xiaomi Just Launched A Really Good Looking Note 2 With Curved Display And 6 GB RAM

Right after Xiaomi’s new phone codenamed Riva was leaked on GeekBench, the company has launched a new phone in its Note lineup.  Launched a few days ago, The Note 2 is a significant upgrade over the original Mi Note launched before. But it is also more expensive compared to its predecessor.

Visually, while the phone is not that much different than others in the market, a slightly curved 5.7-inch FHD OLED display reminds me of (now resurrected) Galaxy Note 7, and it runs on a Snapdragon 821 SoC. The phone also has a 4070 mAh battery which is higher in capacity compared to its main rival: the OnePlus 5. Unlike some recently launched phones by the company, the phone has a fingerprint sensor on its front.

In the optics department, Xiaomi Mi Note 2 includes a 22.56-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF, and EIS with its own 3-axis gyroscope for 4K video stabilization. It has an 8-megapixel Sony IMX268 Exmor RS sensor on the front with f/2.0 aperture, apart from a group selfie feature and Auto Beautify 3.0.

The phone will come in three variants which are a 4GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage model, a 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage model, and a Global Edition with 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage model. All three variants of the phone will be processed  CNY 2799 (Roughly $411), CNY 3299 (Roughly $484) and CNY 3499 (almost $514).

Oppo, Vivo, and Oneplus have been giving a hard time to Xiaomi in recent months, so much so that company has lost its place as a top-tier phone manufacturer in China, it will be interesting to see what Note 2 does for company’s sales.

These Are The 4 Easiest Ways To Do a Reverse Song Search

Want to know what song is playing in the background in a pub or party? Here are some of the best ways of doing a reverse song search.

If you find yourself wondering what great song is playing in the background in a pub or restaurant, this is the URL you should be at. In some cases, searching on Google for just a couple of sentences from the songs may do the trick, but what should you do if you are listening to a track that does not have lyrics? or when the song is in a language that you don’t understand? well, there are some great apps and services that detect the music playing in the background. Let’s talk about some of the easiest ways that you can use to perform a reverse song search.

Ask Google Assistant And Cortana

For most Android and Windows Users, you don’t need any additional app to do a reverse song search, just ask Google Assistant or Cortana “What song is it” and it should be able to listen for a few seconds and come up with a list of possible tracks. To do this, simply open Google app on your phone or click on the Cortana icon on the taskbar and then press the microphone icon on the screen. The simply say “what music is this” or ” what is this songs name” and you should be good to go.

It may not work in all countries though (In India, Google Assistant refuses to work) but you should give it a try if you already have an Android Phone or Windows PC.

Use Shazam Lite

Using Shazam Lite for Reverse Song Search

Shazam is one of the most popular apps to do reverse song search. It has one of the best databases and it works fairly well. While Shazam’s standard app works well on Android and iOS, it may feel bloated if don’t need anything more than some music identification. Shazam Lite can get the job done for you with a smooth and simple interface, the app will also keep a small history of recently scanned apps so that you can recall the name even after a few days.

MusicX Match

MusicXMatch on Android

MusicX Match is one of the most popular music players available for Android. While it does a decent job at creating, playing and managing playlists, MusicX Match is also one of the best apps to do a reverse song search and find the lyrics of the track currently being played. The app is free to use and it works well for most cases. If you are a person who keeps music offline on his phone, the app may be a better choice as it is good at music identification and music playing both.


Just like MusicX Match, Soundhound prides itself in being a good music identification and music playing app. The app is available on all important platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows UWP and even BlackBerry World. Major features of the app include reverse song search, music player and top charts and music discovery personalized for individual users. After you have searched for a song successfully, the app can show you lyrics, name and a YouTube Music Video if you want.

If All of the above fails…

If none of the apps find the song and you are desperate to know the track name, try r/tipofmytongue on Reddit. Head to the site, (if you are not a redditor, you will have to sign-up.) Then you can ask the community about the song by describing the details. The community is quite large and someone there should be able to help you with the search. r/namethatsong is a good place to search for the track name too.

LG Just Launched Q6 Lineup With Almost Bezel-less Displays On a Budget

LG G6 was one of the first true flagship of 2017 (We don’t talk about HTC U Ultra) and one of the most compelling features of the phone was its one of a kind, taller than usual and almost bezel-less 18:9 display. If you have been interested in getting a phone with a similar display but LG G6’s full flagship price turned you off, it looks like LG has made a phone just for you.

The company today revealed a new phone lineup called Q6 series and launched 2 phones named LG Q6, Q5 Plus, and Q6a. All phones have the same display as G6 but they will come at affordable prices.

All phones have a 5.5-inch  2160×1080 display with a  pixel density of 442 PPI and the body of all models will be made with 7000 series aluminum. The phones will have mid-range Snapdragon 435 SoC and all phones will come with a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front facing wide-angle camera.

The Q6 Plus will ship with 4GB RAM and 64 GB Storage, Q6 will come with 3GB RAM and 32 GB storage and The LG Q6a will come with 2GB RAM and 16 GB Storage. I Think the first two models should be more than enough for mainstream users. All phones also come with a non-removable 3,000 mAh battery.

The company did not reveal exact pricing, but considering the phones don’t have balls to the wall specs, we can hope that phones will ship at much lower prices than the og G6. The phone will go on sale in August in all major markets.

Hydrogen One is The Craziest Phone I Have Seen This Year

We have covered some ridiculous phones in recent months, there was world’s smallest phone called Jelly and a few days ago, we took a look at some of the most expensive phones in the market. But I think Red’s Hydrogen One is probably the craziest phone to come out this year.

In case you didn’t know, Red is one of the most popular camera makers. The company specializes in making high quality (and also high priced) video cameras that can shoot in up to 8K. On 6th July, the company announced its first phone called Hydrogen One. The phone will be, as the company says, “the world’s first holographic media machine.”

In its blog post, the company discussed phone’s display, camera, and sound support and claimed that the phone will support mods, just like LG G6 and Google’s now-dead Project Ara.

The phone will have a “Retina-riveting display which will supposedly be able to spring between 3D and 2D modes automatically.  The company also said that it will make a place where it will offer “4-view holographic content”.

Interestingly, the company only shared the phone’s photo from the back side, but it is clear that phone will come with a USB-C port, a MicroSD card, and a 3.5mm Audio Jack. The phone will run Android with some added features. It will work with Red’s professional camera program and it will have a similar UI and monitor capability as the Red Epic Dragon Cameras.

Apart from the info above, the company said that the phone will cost $1195 for the Aluminium version (almost Rs 77,000) which is far more than even the most expensive flagship phones. There will be a titanium version too, which will cost a mind-boggling $1565 (almost 103K INR) Release date is not clear yet, but US readers can expect it to be around the first quarter of 2018.
