Leaked photo from Galaxy Note III suggests 13 megapixel camera

note III 13 megapixel

As anticipation for the Samsung Galaxy Note III builds up, you can definitely expect more rumors to pop up. The latest leak comes from a picture from a Picasa album with embedded information in the file showing a model of Galaxy Note III, and the picture was uploaded with a 2322 x 4128 resolution. For those of you at home wondering how this proves anything about the camera, that resolution is what a 13 MP camera takes in 16:9 resolution. Nifty, right?

This is essentially the same camera in the Galaxy S 4, which is by no means a bad thing. Hopefully we’ll start to see some rumors fly out about Sammy’s latest phablet, since I’m sure it’s going to be a smash hit over the holidays this year.

Up-A Better Way to Keep Your Photos Synced to Picasa and Google+

Up – Picasa Photo Syncing and Uploading  
Developer: Pixite LLC  
Price: $0.99   Download

Pixite, the makers of the Top Rated Paid Picasa App with over 400,000 downloads, announced today the release of Up (v.1.3) for iPhone, the easiest way to sync Camera Roll photos to Picasa and Google+. Unlike the Google+ app, which requires users to open the app to start uploads, users only have to run Up once and it continuously syncs new photos in the background. As a bonus, users can create new albums in their Picasa/Google+ account and manually upload photos and videos to any album.

Features include:

* Background Syncing – Set up your home or office as an Auto Uploads Hotspot. Whenever you enter the Hotspot, Up checks for new photos in your Camera Roll and uploads them to Picasa and Google+.

* Multiple Upload Hotspots – Set up as many as ten Upload Hotspots. The more you have, the more frequently Up checks for recently added Camera Roll photos.

* Full Resolution Photos – Choose upload image sizes from full resolution, 800 pixels, 1024 pixels, 1600 pixels, or 2048 pixels. Videos load in full resolution (videos upload only in manual mode).

* Manual Uploads – Sometimes you want the flexibility to upload photos and videos to a specific online albums.

* No Duplicates – Up knows which files it’s uploaded so even if you’ve deleted photos online, Up won’t automatically upload them again. If you’re manually uploading files, previously uploaded files get marked so you don’t upload duplicates.

* Only Essential Notifications – Up lets you know when you’ve uploaded photos, but won’t annoy you with unnecessary alerts.

* Energy Efficient – Up’s Auto Uploads barely uses any power while it’s in the background and waiting for new photos to appear in your Camera Roll. You won’t even notice Up is running until your photos are synced.

* iPad Support – No need to connect your point-and-shoot or DSLR camera to your computer. Connect your camera to your iPad using the Camera Connection Kit and use Up to keep your photos synced to Picasa.

Up for Picasa/Google+ 1.3 is $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo and Video category.

Mid Ranged Sony HuaShan C530X Leaked, Could Be Launched at CES or MWC

sony-huashan

We’ve heard of Sony’s plans for the future with a few 1080p displays believed to be used in its future flagships. But what about the mid-range segment where Sony clearly has a stronger presence than any other Android OEM? Well, it seems like this new leak will take care of that too. Although there’s no actual image of the device, the EXIF data accessed via Picasa tells us a lot about the purported new mid-ranged Sony droid. Of late, we’ve come to realize that Picasa is the place to be to spot images taken from a yet to be launched mystery device. This one here goes by the model name C530X and is codenamed HuaShan. The source suggests that the device will make its way to China, followed by other global markets.

There isn’t much information available about the device as it’s merely an EXIF data found on Picasa. What we do know is that it will feature a 5MP camera with an f/2.4 lens. The smartphone is shown to be running on the firmware version 12.0.A.0.273 which tells us that it’s an updated version compared to current Sony models. This firmware is also known as eDream 12, and is different from what the Sony Odin leak suggested previously with the eDream 10 firmware. Perhaps this will be one of the many Jelly Bean smartphones coming from Sony in the coming year, we’ll know more as the days progress.

As this is a very early leak, we don’t have access to launch related information. But since we’re heading towards CES which will be followed by the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we should see or hear more about the device during either of the events. Until then, let’s just limit ourselves to speculation and not take this leak too seriously. We’ll keep you posted when we have more on the Sony HuaShan. It is believed that this particular smartphone will have a range of global variants with different model numbers like C5302, C5303 and C5306. The EXIF data shown above reveals the C5303 model number.

Is This the User Manual for the Samsung Nexus 10?

While the LG Nexus 4 hasn’t been much of a secret for weeks now, the rumored Samsung Nexus 10 tablet has been kept well under wraps. The only hints of its existence have come from sites like Picasa or through unconfirmed rumors floating about the tech industry. So when we were pointed to these photos, [...]

Nexus 10 taking photos – image appears on Picasa

It looks like some new evidence has appeared that could confirm the existence of Google’s rumored Nexus 10 tablet made by Samsung. A new photo has surfaced on Picasa and a quick look at the EXIF data has our interested piqued to say the least. The photo was snapped with a device being listed as the Nexus 10. More details can be found below.

What we have here could very well be an early prototype of the device. It’s rumored that the image was uploaded to Picasa by a Samsung employee testing the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 10. Looking at the EXIF data (below) you can clearly see “Nexus 10″ listed as the device, then the camera simply states “Google” which certainly is interesting.

The device also appears to be running a new and previously unheard of version of Android, listed as Android version JVP12C. Then just like previous reports, the tablet data is reporting an impressively high resolution for the 10-inch device. We’ve been talking about a rumored Samsung tablet with insanely high resolution since last year — and it might finally be coming soon. The screen resolution of 2560 x 1600 was confirmed in the data as well.

So far rumors and reports are stating this Nexus 10 will arrive sometime next year running Samsung’s brand new Cortex-A15 based Exynos 5 dual processor. We can’t imagine Samsung having access to that early of an Android build unless this is in fact an upcoming Nexus tablet. Add that to all the previous rumors and we might want to chalk this one up as confirmed. We could possibly see a guest appearance of this tablet at Google’s Android event on October 29th. For now we’ll just have to wait and see.

Someone with a Nexus 10 Uploads a Photo to Picasa, Confirms at Least One Camera

During our inaugural Droid Life Show, we discussed the rumors surrounding the Nexus 10 and many readers in chat expressed an interest in the device. Even though we don’t expect to see this ultra-high resolution tablet until next year, evidence today suggests that Samsung and Google are hard at work.   Picasa has revealed many new [...]

When There’s Smoke, There’s Fire: EXIF Data Supposedly Points Out A 10-Inch Nexus Tablet

 

All eyes may be on the upcoming Nexus 4 (or Optimus Nexus, whichever you prefer), but we haven’t forgotten about the fact that a possible 10-inch Samsung Nexus tablet is quietly being worked on. So while we have no specific details or nary an idea of what this special tablet will feature, we at least know that the possibility of it being a reality is very much true thanks to some leaked EXIF data that surfaced on the Picasa website. According to what was posted on the Picasa website, the image supposedly taken by a “Nexus 10″ has a resolution of 2560 x 1920, which lines up with earlier rumors suggesting the device will have a 10.1-inch display at a 2560 x 1600 resolution. The image that was posted clearly looks like it was intended to highlight the standard camera capabilities of this “Nexus 10″– so we see everything from the 2.7 Aperture & Exposure of 1/15 sec. One major item to note of this image is the Android build of “JVP12C”, an unspecified Jelly Bean (or higher) build— which may imply that this “Nexus 10″ may hold the keys to what should be the latest Android software.

Naturally we don’t want to make too much out of this, but then again— when there’s smoke, there’s always fire. Hopefully we’ll start seeing additional leaks and info of what should cutting-edge features in the upcoming tablet. Maybe just maybe, we’ll see everything we need to see on October 29th.

These Photos May Not Show A Leaked Sony Nexus After All – Here’s Why

image

Earlier today, a couple of rather exciting photos found on Picasa began hitting news sites showing what could be a leaked device called the Sony Nexus X. Of course, during Nexus season, any rumor or glance at a possible new device is always exciting, but sometimes it’s worth while to take a step back and consider whether what we’re looking at is actually what it appears to be. Our penchant for putting leaked images under the microscope led us to do a bit of investigating.

After taking a look at the Nexus X photos, we have some doubts about their validity.

[Real or Fake] Is this the Sony Nexus X?

Here’s something interesting for your Monday morning. Images of a Nexus X showed up on Picasa. No other information was specified, but in looking at the EXIF data, the pics were taken with a Galaxy Nexus. That in itself tells us nothing and there is no reason to know if these are fake or not. We did hear rumblings about a possible Xperia Nexus in August, but nothing else since. I think Xperia Nexus sounds more likely than Nexus X, but I’m not in charge. I guess time will tell, but I’m not making any bets on this one until I see further confirmation. One more pic after the break.

Newest image EXIF data outs LG’s E960 smartphone as the Nexus 4

Last week we came across a plethora of images taken with LG’s E960 smartphone, though we were unsure as to what exactly the official name would be. Well, new EXIF data from Picasa has revealed the ubiquitous Nexus 4 moniker once again, adding to our growing suspicion. And, with a full review of the device already having been published, this name seems all but official.

As with any EXIF data, it’s completely possible that it could have been faked. Although, with all signs pointing to an LG-manufactured Nexus, we have no reason to doubt its authenticity.

Photo EXIF data suggests Nexus 4 name for upcoming LG E960

Nexus 4

The EXIF data of two newly posted images on Picasa suggest the LG built device that everyone assumes is coming soon will be called the Nexus 4. We've seen that name on both a Carphone Warehouse screen and from the French daily newspaper Le Figaro, However, this one carries a bit more weight as the fellow posting the pictures, Mehul Agarwal,  happens to be a software engineer for Google.

Yes, EXIF data can be faked. Yes, names can change — especially when talking phones that haven't even been announced yet. But we have to think that if this information wasn't meant for the public it would have been removed by now, and I'm pretty confident in the Nexus 4 name after today's news.

7-inch Nexus Tablet EXIF data appears in Picasa

We’ve already known that Asus was preparing a 7-inch Nexus tablet for a few weeks now, but this seems to just confirm it even further. Two photos that have apparently been taken with a Nexus tablet have surfaced on Google+ user Somit Bh. The 1280 x 960 pictures were also geo-tagged, and the geo-location data seem to direct the pictures being taken in Google’s Building 44.  The Verge points out that although this EXIF data could have been easily faked, a lot of people are involved in Somit Bh’s Google+ circles, which could prove that the data is real.

Asus told us earlier in the month that the tablet would be going on sale for a retail price between $149-$199, which is extremely pleasing considering it won’t be tied to any carrier contracts. Although I prefer a tablet with a larger screen size, I will definitely pick one of these up when it launches, simply it’s a Nexus tablet and it won’t empty my wallet. And with Google I/O just around the corner, what better time to announce the next Nexus device?

EXIF data possibly outs ‘Nexus 7′ tablet

Nexus

Normally we couldn't care less about stories born from lurking on photo-sharing sites, spying new devices from EXIF data embedded in images. But in this case we'll make an exception. An ASUS "Nexus 7" has popped up on Picasa, lending credence to the generally accepted rumor that we'll be seeing a 7-inch tablet from ASUS in just a couple short weeks at Google's annual developer conference.

The picture, which we've buried after the break, isn't anything special — just some ceiling tiles and a couple florescent lights. It's shot at 1280×960 resolution, meaning it's probably from a front-facing camera. Really, it's the existence of the tablet that's of any interest here, but neither is it all that much of a surprise. And the question remains: What will separate it from all the other tablets out there today?

Anyhoo. Be sure to bookmark our Google IO page, and we'll be bringing the whole thing from June 27-29 in San Francisco.

DROID RAZR HD Exposed Again By EXIF Data On Picasa

Apparently, a Motorola employee uploaded a series of photos to Picasa with the EXIF data pointing squarely at the DROID RAZR HD, Motorola’s upcoming late-summer sequel to the DROID RAZR for Verizon. This isn’t the first time this handset has been exposed by Picasa. This time, the EXIF data shows a 13MP shooter with an aperture of  f2.4, and of course the DROID RAZR HD name. The pictures have since been removed, which makes me think they were legitimate, but without the files it’s hard to say for sure.

The specs of this device are also rumored to include a dual-core, 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU,  1196×720 display with on-screen navigation buttons, and a 3,300 mAh battery.

Who’s waiting for this one?

Droid RAZR HD camera samples appear on Picasa

With the Motorola DROID RAZR HD on our radar for quite some time now, many expected to see the latest member of Verizon’s popular lineup on store shelves by now. Instead, a release date still alludes us. Camera samples said to be taken with the RAZR HD’s 13MP camera do not, however. The collection of photos appeared on Picasa within the past week and show EXIF data linking the images to the upcoming smartphone. All sings point to another month or two of waiting. We suspect Verizon is in no rush to push the original Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX out of the spotlight considering reports that the duo are currently among the top-selling devices on their network.

Samsung Galaxy S III sample photos?

Some images apparently coming from a new Samsung mobile have appeared on image sharing site Picasa, which identifies the phone taking them as the Samsung GT-I9300. Which is the internal model number we’re all expecting to launch in a couple of weeks time as the Galaxy S III.

Here are a couple of the photos, which have been uploaded to the site in their full 3264×2448 resolution:

galaxy s3-photo-sample-1

The full supposed Galaxy S III sample gallery can be found on Picasa here, although those really are the only two that give us any indication of the GT-I9300′s actual photo quality.

If This is a Sample Photo from the Samsung Galaxy S III, I’d Be Disappointed

This image has no alt text

A photo has hit Picasa with some interesting EXIF data. It claims that photo was taken with a Samsung GT-I9300, the model number believed to be reserved for the yet-to-be-announced Samsung Galaxy S3. The camera is 8.1 megapixels. It’s hard to put a ton of faith into EXIF data so I’m having a hard time getting excited. And if this photo is anything to go by (that’s if it’s real, of course), that is one sorry camera on the Galaxy S III. My original Galaxy S took better indoor photos and I have a hard time imagining that Samsung would regress in this area. Take it for what you will. [Picasa via AllAboutSamsung, cheers Lars!]

[Update]: We’re told this is a test with HDR, so the photographer having shaky hands may explain the blurriness.

StyleTag app brings out the fashionable side of your Android phone

Believe it or don’t, not every Android users gets all of his or her clothes from the prestigious Sam Walton Collection. (Well, I do, but I know not everyone does.) For those with an eye towards both fashion and social collaboration, StyleTag combines the elements of Flickr’s tagging system, Pinterest’s photo-based social networking and Picasa’s instant uploads. Their free app, “StyleTag: FashionSNS“, has an admirably advanced user interface with tens of thousands of entries for the sartorially obsessed.

The idea is simple enough: create a social network for the fashion conscious, wherein they can snap photos from their phones, upload them and “like” or comment on the results. The brilliant bit comes in the combination of the ubiquitous tags and StyleTag’s unique categorization system. Sure, you can look at the firehose feed in the main wall view of all the entries or just the most popular ones, but if you’re in the mood to find jeans or evening wear, or even items from a particular brand or designer, search by tag. You can save favorite tags or feeds to follow them Twitter-style, or just chat with other registered users.

As a method for casually browsing the latest in fashion, the app is an impressive accomplishment – I wish more mainstream software could look this good. Admittedly, the userbase skews overwhelmingly female at the moment; guys won’t find many tips or items of interest. As far as clothing goes, anyway.  (Ahem.) Top users are turning in some impressive entries both for clothing and photography, though some is certainly taken with the aid of more than just a smartphone.

There are a few holdovers from the iOS app design, like portrait-only orientation and a persistent back button. But over all it’s a beautiful app with a surprising amount of depth, for those with the inclination to peruse its digital aisles. You can download it now in the Android Market – fair warning, it doesn’t seem to like Android tablets at the moment.

As Samsung Galaxy S II Wins T3′s Phone of the Year Award, Samsung UK Confirms “Nexus Prime” Coming Sooner Than We Think

This image has no alt text

T3′s Gadget Awards are going on right now and Samsung had the honor of accepting the Phone of the Year award for their Galaxy S II smartphone. Great! But that isn’t even close to being the story here. After accepting the award, Samsung UK’s Andrew Glass, a sales director, was in such a good mood that he confirmed to T3 that the Nexus Prime would be coming a sooner than we think:

You will have an announcement of the Nexus Prime very shortly and will be seeing it in shops sooner than you think

So number one, that lends credence to our source yesterday who told us to expect the device to see its first release on November 3rd and to expect an announcement sooner than that. Secondly, it’s the first time that anyone from Samsung, Google or anyone else directly involved has mentioned the phone by name (or mentioned it period) and he mentioned it as the “Nexus Prime.”

No one’s sure at this point what it’ll be called, but other possibilities include Samsung Galaxy Nexus (it appeared on Picasa when someone uploaded photos from the phone) and the DROID Prime, which would be Verizon’s version (though some are suggesting this will be close to a Galaxy S II handset with TouchWiz UI). We’ll surely be glad when all this is officially cleared up. Sit tight in the meantime. [Thanks Enea!]

Android 101: Keep your Picasa account synced with your Android device

Sync settings

Because Google wants us all to use the cloud, they have some pretty slick ways to make it easy with your Android device.  One of the free perks of having a Google account is your own online gallery at Picasa, where photos under 2048 x 2048 pixels and videos up to 15 minutes in length can be stored in unlimited numbers, and anything larger can be applied to your 1GB storage limit.  Read more about that, as well as how to upgrade that limit and how it works with Google+ right here

So you have a nice place to store pictures you take and want to keep, let’s get that synced up so it’s always available on your Android device.  We’re going to use the Samsung Galaxy Tab here in our example, as I have about a ton of data stored in the cloud with music, video and pictures that I can look at on demand synced up.  But the procedure is the same for any Android device.

From the homescreen, hit the Menu button, then open the settings.  Scroll through the settings until you come to the Accounts and sync option, then select it.  You should see your Google account listed, go on and press it.  Depending on what applications you have installed, you’ll see entries to keep different things synced to your device.  Today we’re looking for "Sync Picasa Web Albums", so go ahead and make sure that box is checked.  If it wasn’t already checked, it may take a few minutes to get all the information synced up, but after that’s done you’ll find all the images in their gallery folder available in the Gallery app on your Android device, just as if they were stored locally.

Gallery

The real beauty here is that you can manage folders and files from your computer’s web browser (or if you like, from the browser right on your Android device itself) and upload content easily from things like your camera.  And if you use your Android device for your camera, you can upload directly to Picasa using the Google+ app or with any number of Picasa uploaders available in the Market.  It’s an easy way to manage your photos once you get it set up, and an even easier way to share them.  Now get things setup, and start sharing your photos with the world!
