Sony rumored to be making 3 new smartphones including a 6.4 inch one

Sony mobiles is going to launch too many models this year. They are really taking the android smartphone market by storm. They have already launched so many models this year and have lined up more for later this year. If the rumor mill is to be believed Sony is making three new Android smartphones which would be launched later this year. These smartphones have more or less the same confihuration. Two of these smartphones are said to be exclusively for Japan and their global launch is uncertain. 
One smartphone is said to be for NTT Docomo and the other one is for AU. Both of these smartpphones have mediocre specs and there is nothing great about them. The Docomo handset is said to be Xperia A codenamed 'Dogo'. It has a 4.6 inch HD Display, its not confirm whether its an 720p HD Display or a 1080p Full HD Display. Xperia A might be powered by Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB Ram, 32GB Internal storage, 2300 mAH removable battery. The body is said to be dust & water resistant as the new Xperia ZL. It would also feature one seg, infrared and mobile wallet.

The AU model is Xperia UL codenamed 'Gaga'. It has a 5 inch 1080p Full HD Display with Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB Ram, 32GB Internal storage with 2300 mAH, mobile wallet, one seg, infrared. It is water & dust resistant. In design it would be similar to the Xperia ZL. A global version of these devices might be released or they might just be Japan Exclusive.

There is another smartphone with an odd screen size of 6.4 inch codenamed 'Togari'. This screen size may be fairly new considering the current craze for 5 inch devices. 'Togari' has a 1080p Full HD display. Currently no other information is available regarding the device. It is currently being tested and its release is not certain. 

HTC Sheds 'Quietly Brilliant' Tagline to adopt a bold approach

HTC has quietly shed its tagline 'Quietly Brilliant' for a more bold and broader approach towards its marketing strategy. HTC has not been able to make profit from its smartphone business. It has just 6% of market share in comparison with 39% of Samsung and 33% of Apple. Samsung and Apple are the only companies making profit selling mobile phones, others are incurring huge losses. With this new approach HTC wants to use tags such as 'Bold', 'Playful' and 'Authentic'. 'Bold' would signify its aggressive approach towards marketing new products, 'Playful' would mean features based on consumer demands. 'Authentic' would signify  its focus on innovation.

HTC CMO Ho further said that HTC would double its marketing budget upto 250% from this year. In the past poor marketing led to decline in sales and market shares of HTC. After the launch of Samsung Galaxy S4 HTC called it the next big flop by tweeting with the #thenextbigflop tag. It said the Samsung Galaxy S4 lacks innovation and Samsung has just spent big on marketing rather than innovation. HTC further said that its HTC One S is the best smartphone. HTC hopes to increase sales and revenue with the new ONe S. The One S was delayed due to components shortage. It would be available in the US at the End of April.

In looks the device is pretty much similar to the Galaxy S4 barring the size. Even a Dual sim variant of the Galaxy S4 mini is said to be offered. Instead of cutting down on both the specs and size Samsung could have just reduced the size, retaining the other  features of the Galaxy S4.

The current trend among latest gadgets is to slimmer with each updated version. According to another report the next gen iPhone's and iPad's won't have Samsung manufactured displays due to increasing law suits & patent war among them. Apple might use Toshiba or Sharp manufactured displays for their products. It might even come with a new version of Apples popular iOS. Foxconn might have started the production of these new products from Apple. Apple and Tim Cook would be hoping that their new products will bring back apple to what it was under Steve Jobs.

Samsung To Release First Tizen Phone in Q3 2013

In an interview with Wall Street Journal, Samsung’s global head of mobile J. K. Shin revealed that Samsung will be releasing a Tizen based device in third quarter of 2013. Tizen has been in development for the last one year and much has been said and rumoured of it, including a rumour of a Japan unveil in first quarter.
Samsung is also in the process of merging the lightweight in-house OS BADA with Tizen and pick the good features off it to feed into Tizen. This will make Tizen a well-rounded OS for smartphones and smart home devices that will have taken enough time to develop and mature before launch. Samsung has had developers seeded with Tizen developer devices for over a year now, which goes to say they will surely have something tangible at launch.
J.K Shin did assert that Android will remain their number one OS even with the Tizen launch and said they like Android and wish to continue with good relations with Google. Samsung’s strategy according to Shin is to always work with multiple software companies. He however went on to say that smartphones and tablets running Microsoft’s OS Windows 8 are not selling well, with people having much preference for Android.
