Micromax recently teased the upcoming Micromax Canvas 4, as we all know the popularity of the Canvas series, it has been taking on the big guns like Samsung, providing some excellent hardware at a very low price. The Canvas, Canvas 2 and the Canvas 3 sold like hot cakes in Indian markets with some astounding sales numbers. Micromax aims to continue the series with the Canvas 4, according to the video pre-booking starts end of June. The Canvas 3 was sold out in a blink of eye when it was announced.

The specs are going to be mostly the same, it is just an evolution rather than a revolution.
- It will be powered by a Quad-Core Mediatek MT6589 Cortex A7 chipset running at 1.5 GHz
- PowerVR SGX544 GPU clocked at 802 MHz
- 2 GB of RAM
- The phone will have a 4.99′ FHD-IPS 1080p display, which has great viewing angles as seen on some chinese phones like Zopo and a very narrow bezel which will be a cherry on the cake.
- 13 MP Rear Camera and a 5/8 MP front camera(Yep, 5 or 8 MEGAPIXEL FRONT CAMERA xD) with 1080p recording at 30 fps.
- Bluetooth 4.0
- A bigger 3000 mAh battery.All this in a plastic case that looks like Nexus 4 in the front. The video is much like what Samsung used to tease the Galaxy S4 earlier this year. The phone will be running Android 4.2.1 out of the box. Micromax has also promised to give 4.2 to other Canvas phones.
The Micromax Canvas 4 will be priced somewhere between 17K to 20K.
Many people do complain that these are just copying Samsung. People in the market just go out and buy Micromax just because it is cheap. “Micromax ka quad-core 15000 me hai and Samsung ka 35000 me :P”
“Some Indian TechHeads and geeks do hate Micromax for these reasons, but sometimes I do wonder whether Samsung was also hated like this in their beginning days in South Korea? :P”
But Micromax does pack in a punch and Samsung has taken quiet some beating from the Canvas series, even though the hardware is typically from a Chinese manufacturer it will be interesting to see how it shapes up against its competition.
HTC Butterfly aka HTC Droid DNA was introduced in late 2012, now HTC is planning to move he series further ahead, there have been rumors of this device since quiet some time now. A few days back @evleaks confirmed and bought us leaked images of the device.
Butterfly S will be an instrumental update to the Droid DNA, it will boast a 5′ 1080p Super LCD 3 and an evolutionary design with respect to Droid DNA. Further specs include an UltraPixel camera which we saw on the HTC One, Dual Stereo Speakers, 2 GB of RAM and SnapDragon 600 Quad-Core processor. The insides are mostly the same as the HTC One. Even on the software front, things are quiet similar. The leaked images show HTC Blinkfeed, it even packs in HTC Boomsound, and the other Sense 5 UI goodies. The device will be running Android 4.2.2 out of the box.

HTC is going to announce it officially on 19th June. With the release date being less than a week away, it will be interesting to see it’s pricing as it will be competing with it’s own half brother, the HTC One.
An alleged image of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was spotted online, the next generation phablet is going to sport, what appears to be a 5.85′ Super AMOLED display. The rumors of the next generation Samsung Galaxy Note phablet are growing thick and fast.
Galaxy Note 3 and the Samsung Galaxy S4
According to a report from MyDrivers, the upcoming Galaxy Note phablet will feature a Full HD display and packs a punch with the company’s own Exynos 5410 Octa processor, with the four powerful Cortex A15 chips clocked at 2.0 GHz, and the remaining four power-saving Cortex A7 chips running at 1.7 GHz.
Samsung Galaxy Note III is said to come with 3 GB of RAM and will run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Furthermore, the phablet is rumored to be unveiled during IFA 2013.
The Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is rumored to hit in late May or early June and while there’s not much known about the mid-range droid, data from GLBenchmark gives us some info on the screen, OS and chipset.
The Galaxy Ace 3 is expected to have a 4” screen and GLBenchmark reports WVGA resolution. That would put it on par with the Galaxy S III mini with 233ppi pixel density.
The test was ran on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the same software used by the Galaxy S4. Since the phone packs a VideoCore IV GPU, it most likely uses the same Broadcom chipset as the Galaxy S II Plus and Galaxy Grand. It’s clocked a little lower though, 1GHz for the two Cortex-A9 cores.
Earlier rumors suggest that the camera and battery will be unchanged from the Ace 2, meaning 5MP stills, 1080p video and 1,500mAh battery. Also note that the final digit in the model number S7272 points to dual-SIM functionality. The phone is expected in late May or early June for €300.

The anticipated next iPhone, although itself still not fully emigrated from rumorland, is expected to feature an improved camera sensor compared to the one found on the current Apple flagship.
The iPhone 5 features an 8MP camera sensor with an f/2.4 aperture, hybrid IR filter, and backside illumination. A source working for Wonderful Saigon Electrics, the manufacturer that makes Apple’s camera modules, alleges that the next iPhone (which is referred to as iPhone 5S) will come with an updated 12MP camera, complete with improved shooting under low-light conditions and HDR support.
Apple is under increased pressure as of late with recent Android flagships like the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 expected to quickly steal marketshare from its iOS platform. The Cupertino giant needs to produce a device that will really raise some eyebrows, and an updated camera sensor may be one of the ingredients it needs.
