Roundup: Samsung Wearable Devices, Android 4.4 Smartphones, New Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, and USB 3.0 Flash Drive

As the new month kickoff, I would like to start by looking back to those articles which captured my attention a couple of weeks ago. The World Mobile Congress (WMC) ended successfully revealing a lot of anticipated devices which are now headed to the global market. Companies from all over the world teased us with their new line of products to follow after the big event in Barcelona, Spain.

Samsung revealed their 5.1-inch anticipated Galaxy S5 along with wearable devices. The company officially announced the new line of Gear smartwatch, the Neo and Fit which are designed to work with their own blockbuster smartphones.

In behalf of Android 4.4 (KitKat) platform, Samsung Galaxy S5 is not the only smartphone to sport the newest version of operating system from Google. HTC One, LG G Pro 2, and Sony Xperia Z2 got their own fully customized environment to meet the needs of prospect consumers. And these other brands might be the closest competitor of Galaxy S5 which embraced the Android 4.4 in 2014.

The appearances of Samsung Galaxy S5 in WMC 2014 revealed Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 technology under the hood of the said smartphone. A new generation of microchip with 4G LTE support that runs in a quad-core architecture. From a clock speed of 2.5GHz, it is clear that Galaxy S5 got the highest points in terms of energy efficiency over the other brands.

Toshiba introduces a new line of USB 3.0 flash drive, the TransMemory Pro ranging from 32GB to 128GB size. It offers a promising read and write speed just like of other brands with the same technology. The number of USB 3.0 devices continue to grow for the pasts months. And flash drive manufacturers saw the potential of these technology to replace the old USB 2.0 in the near future.
