Qualcomm announced 4G connectivity and services to its feature phones

If you still use feature phones and think that it will not provide any cutting edge performance or you cannot flaunt it due to its appearance, then think again. Like Nokia which gave its Nokia 3310 a new look, it seems that company is also trying to re-design its feature phones, but for rising markets.Qualcomm announced 4G connectivity and services to its feature phones

Qualcomm 205 Platform

During an event, which took place in Delhi, the company revealed its latest platform Qualcomm 205 Mobile Platform.

Since past three years, this is the first time when the company is updating its entry-level mobile platform. The company is doing this by bringing 4G services to its phones along with LTE connectivity.

The Qualcomm 205 chip is basically developed for the feature phones, which are very popular in emerging markets such as Latin America, Southeast Asia, and India. The reports say that the chip is developed in India by considering the “Make in India” initiative from the government.

Although these chips won’t be as advanced as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets, it will provide LTE connectivity and 4G services for feature phones.

Features that company will bring

Qualcomm says that the platform is basically designed to bring 4G connectivity to its feature phones. The chipset is equipped with an X5 Category 4 LTE modem, which provides 150 Mbps download speed and 50 Mbps upload speed.

The platform also includes Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 720p video streaming at 30fps, and VoWIFI. In addition to this, the chipset comes with an ISP that supports a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 480p VGA front camera.

Qualcomm flaunts its long battery life for the feature phones. The company claims that phones based on the Qualcomm 205 SoC will offer a standby time of 45 days, talk time of 20 hours, and 86 hours of music playback.

The Partners

Qualcomm has tied knots with the OEMs/ODMs like Uniscope, Flex, Borqs, Reliance Jio, FIH/Megaphone, TCL, Micromax, and more.

The company says that it is taking such steps to help people who stay in rural areas, where there is a shortage of electricity.

Release date

Qualcomm says that the chip is already been developed but it will reach the market by the second half of 2017.

Feature Phones May Sound ‘Dumb’ But They Are Getting 4G LTE

Feature Phones May Sound 'Dumb' But They Are Getting 4G LTEThanks to the Nokia 3310 reboot, what’s old is new again particularly when it comes to retro technology that makes us remember the good olden days. But while it’s fun to wax nostalgic about feature phones and easy to use and how they’re durable and last days without a charge, no one wants the slow data speeds that came with the devices. Though LTE-enabled feature phones do exist, like the Sonim XP5 and Kyocera DuraXE, they’re place devices that are oftentimes rugged and rare. However, US chip maker Qualcomm recently announced its 205 chipsets, that’ll allow more feature phones to achieve LTE speeds.

According to the 2016 report by IDC, Smartphones are still on the rise around the world. But in emerging markets such as South Africa, India and Vietnam, about half of all phones in use are feature phones. At the same time, demand for 4G is emerging and climbing markets are building out the infrastructure needed for 4G networks. By 2020, 80 percent of all phones will be 4G-compatible, the same IDC study predicts. With the help of 205 chipsets, feature phones can get much faster internet than before. And while they’re not the most capable devices around, faster internet speeds will allow these handsets to browse social media, load new sites, upload photos and live sports and stream video.


Peak speeds of 150Mbps download and 50Mbps upload

Can support phones with 3-megapixel rear camera and 0.3-megapixel front camera

Dual-core CPU with 1.1GHz clock speed

NFC capabilities

Adreno GPU

Can support VGA display at 480p and 60 frames per second

In next few months, you can expect phones carrying the Qualcomm 205 platform. So far, the company has partnered with manufacturers such as HiPad, Megaphone and Nubia to make 4G feature phones. Qualcomm did not disclose any upcoming phones in the US that will feature this chipset.

This New Mobile Phone Has Embedded Diamonds And A 360-Degree Camera

This New Mobile Phone Has Embedded Diamonds And A 360-Degree CameraEvery year so many phones come out with similar designs and features. But every once in a while, one comes out of nowhere that stands out for a great idea, utter extravagance, and unique style. ProTruly’s Darling smartphone seems to hit all three in the best and worst ways. It appears to be the first smartphone with a built-in 360-degree camera, allowing it to record videos and take photos in all directions at once. The phone appears to let you preview those recordings as strange globes. Presumably, you’d be able to upload them to the many sites like Facebook and YouTube that now support 360-degree footage.

As for why the Darling is the first phone to include this feature, that becomes fairly obvious when you look at its design: the phone has an enormous camera protrusion on both the back and front. It might still fit in your pockets, but it probably isn’t going to be awfully comfortable. That said, camera bumps have become a standby of top smartphones lately. Even though, ProTruly is pushing things here, the size really may not be a turnoff for someone who’s interested in 360-degree video. Plus, with 360-degree video growing ever more popular, it’s a neat feature to have built into a phone.

There are two versions of the Darling being made a standard model and a glitzier model. There seems to have conflicts regarding its pricing: China Daily says the standard version sells for close to $600 USD and the higher-end model for close to $1,300, while Mashable has them at $500 and $800. They are currently available only in China. Both models have the same specifications. Mashable reports that they have a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a MediaTek processor, 64GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM, a 3,560mAh battery and 13MP cameras on both sides. The phones have running Android Marshmallow and a USB-C port. It also has a fingerprint sensor on the back.

Where the higher-end model stands out is its wonderfully excessive design flourishes: instead of the plastic camera housing used at the top of the standard model, the higher-end Darling uses leather, a strip of gold, and four embedded diamonds.

The phone was announced at the end of the year, but it’s now popping up again after ProTruly brought it to Mobile World Congress this week. Mashable took a look at the phone and called it “bizarre,” “the kind of hideousness only Vertu would be able to make decent” and “unusually long.” You should definitely read it if you want some hands-on impressions.

WhatsApp Uses Video Calls as Bait

If on your phone comes this message that promises to activate WhatsApp video calls instantly, be careful, it is a Trojan.

After announcing the update of video calls in WhatsApp, now a message that circulates through the messaging service promises users to activate the function instantly without knowing that it is an attempt to steal information by installing a Trojan.

The fraudulent message promises to activate the functionality if previously the user shares the link between their contacts, the page counts the number of times the user presses the share button, says Eset.

The user must pass a series of ads, while, in the background, the Trojan steals information from the cell phone number. For example, they open the SMS and automatically add the number to a premium service.

The message is not a virus, since there is no executable file that is downloaded and installed on the device. The problem is generated from a message that introduces a third party, and that is harmless if you do not enter the attached link.

We remind you that video calls are already registered in the new version of WhatsApp officially available in the Play Store and App Store. If your smartphone is eligible for this feature, you will not have to install any extra applications or visit a page to activate it.

Update your version of WhatsApp officially on Android and iOS.
