Will Samsung Galaxy S IV Debut in 2013 Picture Leaked Online

first_imgSpeculations on Samsung Galaxy S IV has hit new heights as the reports of Samsung confirming the arrival of new flagship handset emerged.The latest reports suggest that the successor of Samsung Galaxy S3 is in the pipeline. Rumours on Galaxy S IV, which have been doing the rounds since last summer, seems to be ringing true after theSamsung Lebanon on Facebook responded to a query saying that “The Galaxy SIV won’t be released before May 2013.” It added later “What we said is only trivial since all Galaxy S series are released between late April and Early May, yet there’s no way for anyone to know the exact release date.”Although this has made it clear that the company will not launch the much-anticipated Galaxy S IV before May, the response had fuelled the speculations that the company has its next flagship phone in the bag. Meanwhile, an image which is said to be Samsung Galaxy S IV has hit the net. The image, which appears more or less similar to its predecessor Galaxy S III, was apparently sent by an insider at Samsung to the technology Blog SamMobile.According to SamMobile, the leaked image of Galaxy S IV revealed that, “The device will use on-screen buttons as there is no home-button present on the device (Finally), the bezel around the device is much thinner and the device features a large display.”The rumours suggest that the device will have 4.99 inch Super AMOLED FULL HD display with 1080p and will be powered by Exynos 5450 Quad-Core CPU clocked at 2.0GHz. It is also said that the device will have unbreakable display. The speculations have been rife that the device will boast of 13 Megapixel Rear Facing Camera and 2 Megapixel Front Facing Camera along with 2GB RAM.”We can’t 100% confirm if this is indeed the Galaxy S IV but the picture he sent us looks really sharp and doesn’t look fake at all. The design of the device looks also very similar to the design of the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Premier, which makes this picture more authentic,” said SamMobile.last_img read more

American firm Herman Miller to make designer chairs in Karnataka plant

first_imgUS-based global office furniture major Herman Miller on Wednesday opened its hi-tech plant at Bidadi on the city’s outskirts to make designer chairs in India for the country’s growing domestic market.”As India is one of our fastest growing markets in Asia, we have set up a production facility at Bidadi to make designer products like chairs to our customers faster,” Herman Miller Asia Pacific vice-president Jeremy Hocking told reporters here.Bidadi is about 40km from Bengaluru on the state highway towards Mysuru.The Michigan-headquartered $2.2-billion global firm operates in over 100 countries worldwide, with production facilities in the US, Britain, China and Italy and sells its products and services through a global dealer network.”We have chosen Bidadi for the plant as it’s strategically located to reach target markets in Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune, besides Sri Lanka for exports, as proximity reduces product lead-time,” Hocking said on the occasion, but declined to mention how much the company had invested in the facility.The company’s India facility is the third in the region (Asia Pacific) with other two being at Ningbo and Dong-guan in China.”We have started production in August and adopted a lean manufacturing system to reduce lead time and improve reliability to ensure same quality as elsewhere,” the company’s international operations vice-president Richard Scott pointed out.The company plans to ramp up its production capacity and manpower to 200 people by March.Interestingly, the nearly century-old company’s famous designers Charles and Ray Eames came calling to India in 1958 at the invitation of then prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru.”The interaction with Nehru led to the government setting up the National Institute of Design at Ahmedabad in Gujarat in 1961,” Hocking recalled.last_img read more

US vows to make North Korea rich if it gives up nukes

first_imgUS Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, left, shakes hands with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a meeting at Workers` Party of Korea headquarters in Pyongyang, North Korea on 9 May. Photo: APThe United States promised Friday that it would work to rebuild North Korea’s sanctions-crippled economy if Kim Jong Un’s regime agrees to surrender its nuclear arsenal.Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s vow came as senior US officials expressed growing optimism ahead of the landmark 12 June summit between Kim and president Donald Trump.Pompeo, who held talks Pyongyang’s young leader over the weekend, even said “we have a pretty good understanding between our two countries about what the shared objectives are.”He was speaking after talks with his South Korean opposite number Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha to coordinate Washington and Seoul’s preparations for the historic encounter.Many observers have warned Kim’s regime will try to drive a wedge between the allies as the summit approaches, playing Seoul’s fear of war against Washington’s nuclear concerns.But both Kang and Pompeo insisted that they agreed on the need for the “total, permanent and verifiable” denuclearization of the divided peninsula.Trump and South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in are due to meet on 22 May at the White House for the next round of planning.Pompeo said the United States would remain on board to help develop the North’s economy, which has been devastated by its own mismanagement and crippling international sanctions.“If North Korea takes bold action to quickly denuclearize, the United States is prepared to work with North Korea to achieve prosperity on par with our South Korean friends,” he said.Since an ad hoc 1953 armistice put an end to active hostilities between the North and the South, South Korea has emerged from devastation to become a leading world economy.‘Good conversations’But the North has remained one of the world’s most isolated states and its outdated economy has been further battered by a UN-backed “maximum pressure” campaign of sanctions.Over the past year Kim and Trump have added a personal touch to a half-century of international enmity, swapping insults and both openly threatening devastating direct military action.Kim’s regime also carried out missile tests that convinced US intelligence officials, including Pompeo in his former role as CIA chief, that North Korea could threaten US cities.But South Korea’s president Moon reached out to the North, reopening direct talks, and when Kim invited Trump to a summit to discuss disarmament the mood changed.Pompeo flew to Pyongyang for talks and to recover three released American detainees, and now a summit date has been set for 12 June in Singapore.“We had good conversations, conversations that involve deep complex problems, challenges, strategic decisions that chairman Kim has before him,” Pompeo said.The pair, he said, talked “about how it is he wishes to proceed and if he’s prepared, in exchange for the assurances that we’re ready to provide him, if he is prepared to fully denuclearize.“We’ll require a robust verification program, one that we would undertake with partners around the world which would achieve that outcome,” he warned.But he added: “I’m confident that we have a shared understanding of the outcome that the leaders want, certainly President Trump and chairman Kim, but I think President Moon as well.”South Korea’s Kang shared in Pompeo’s optimism and was at pains to insist that there is no daylight between how Washington and Seoul are approaching the talks.“We agreed that the summit would be an historic opportunity for resolving the North Korean nuclear issue, and securing enduring peace on the Korean peninsula,” she said.“We reaffirmed that our goal is to achieve the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula,” she added, promising “air-tight” coordination.Carrot and stickPompeo’s promise of an economic carrot to match the stick of “maximum pressure” may reassure observers who are concerned that Seoul and Washington’s objectives are not exactly aligned.“There’s a danger here of the peace track moving more quickly than the denuclearization track,” warned Abraham Denmark, an Asia expert and former senior US defence official.“If that happens, it could give North Korea an opportunity to try to drive a wedge between Seoul and Washington,” said Denmark, now at the Wilson Centre think tank in the US capital.Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice offered three recommendations to Trump: allow experts to make the deal, don’t negotiate away the “equities” of others including Japan and South Korea, and “don’t be anxious to remove American troops from the equation.”“If we can hold to those three principles, this might work,” Rice said at Stanford’s Hoover Institution.So far, the North Korean regime has made vague pledges to “denuclearize” but has not spelled out what that means, when it would happen or how it would be implemented.In North Korea’s bombastic rhetoric, “denuclearization” has, for years, been a byword for US troop withdrawals from South Korea-an idea that Kang appeared to reject.After her talks with Pompeo, she took pains to “emphasize again that the US military presence in Korea is a matter for the ROK-US alliance first and foremost.”Hardliners in the North are believed to see a nuclear weapon as a guarantee against outside efforts to topple the regime, but Trump insists he will not tolerate their growing arsenal.last_img
