When it comes to processors in your smartphones, one of the names that are surely worth taking note of would be Qualcomm, and it seems as though the company is working on a spanking new quad-core processor known as the Snapdragon S4 Pro, which has been speculated to see action in the upcoming LG device. Right now, the company mentioned that they are unable to give further comments on the device, at least not until LG steps forward with an official announcement of their own. Qualcomm did mention, however, at this particular handset from LG is already “currently in production”, where it will be sold in South Korea sometime from September this year onwards, with a very high probability of a global release arriving later in the year. Do you think that Qualcomm’s latest attempt at a quad-core processor in the form of the Snapdragon S4 Pro is going to be a winner?By Ubergizmo.

If there is one irritating thing about YouTube these days (and have been for quite some time already), it would be the presence of ads in some of the videos. Don’t you just hate it when you are hoping to jump straight into the action, only to discover that the video is preceded by an ad? Good thing the desktop version of YouTube allows us to skip those pesky ads, but users of the mobile version are not so lucky – at least until now. As more and more folks watch YouTube videos on the go, the launch of TrueView for mobile could not come at a more timely manner, allowing users to skip ads after the first five seconds.
“Giving viewers choice over ads they watch has led to a better, more engaged viewing experience, benefiting the entire YouTube community of users, advertisers, and content creators. Advertisers only pay when someone chooses to watch the ad, so their budgets go toward the people most interested in what they have to say,” YouTube mentioned in a blog post. That is the way to go, and it remains to be seen just how Google plans to monetize YouTube in a big way.By Ubergizmo.

LG Display is one of the manufacturers for Apple when it comes to displays for their devices, and we have received word that LG Display has begun mass production of an unknown, albeit thinner display, and many people are speculating that this new and thinner display could very well be the same display that sees action in Apple’s upcoming next generation iPhone. Right now, the display’s production schedule is said to remain in line with customers’ product release plans, according to LG’s chief executive. “We just began mass production and we don’t expect any disruption in supplies,” mentioned Han Sang-beom, chief executive of LG Display. Apart from LG Display, Sharp of Japan is also speculated to begin shipping displays meant for the new iPhone sometime from this month onwards.By Ubergizmo.

Hear ye, hear ye, those of you who are currently using Chrome for iOS – it seems that this particular software or app has received an update courtesy of the folks over at Google.

I guess with the number of rumors that have circulated concerning the new iPhone which has been deemed to arrive this coming September, it would not hurt at all to have yet another rumor hit the news wires, right? We are talking about a redesigned dock connector that comes in a smaller form factor, and the image above was a photo which circulated on Twitter courtesy of a certain Jack Yao who happens to work at China-based accessory vendor Veister. This particular cable that you see does seem to rely on the alleged port, and there is not much you can view to help you tell the difference between it and an official Apple product, although we are not ruling out the fact that this could very well be a third-party replacement.
The alleged iPhone USB cable does ship with its fair share of FTC markings, resembling a scannable QR code of sorts on the standard USB end. At the other side of the spectrum, we are looking at the smaller dock connector lining up with previous rumors, but we will just have to wait until the official iPhone 5 or new iPhone is released to confirm anything.By Ubergizmo.

Remember our story earlier this morning concerning whispers of HTC actually throwing in the towel where their involvement with Beats are concerned for future handsets? It seems that this particular bit is a plain old rumor, so those who actually read that with a salt shaker in hand would be pleased to know that HTC is still very much committed to include Beats integration in their upcoming range of smartphones. Below is a statement from Jeff Gordon, Global Online Communications Manager on behalf of HTC reproduced in its full glory.
HTC remains strongly committed to Beats Audio and including their innovation in our devices. Any rumor of HTC no longer integrating Beats Audio into our devices is categorically false.
I guess that puts to bed such a rumor, it is time to move on with everyone else, and there are other juicier iPhone 5 and iPad mini rumors to talk about, no?By Ubergizmo. Related articles: Rumor: HTC could bid adieu to Beats integration, Beats purchases part of HTC's stake ,
If you?re still relying on AT&T?s 2G technology and you?re living in Oakland, you may or may not have realized that suddenly your 2G service has stopped working, or the signal might not be as strong as it once was. This is because AT&T has temporarily shut down 2G frequencies around the city due to the Oakland police and the FCC complaining that AT&T?s 2G cell towers are interfering with the police?s brand new $18 million radio system. As it stands there have been reports that the radio system was not functioning as well as expected, although it got noticeably worse when patrol cars were within a quarter of a mile of AT&T?s 2G cell towers, thus leading to them to suspect that the cell towers might be causing interference. In any case as AT&T?s 2G subscribers are only a small portion of its network, there shouldn?t be too many people affected. If you are one of those affected, let us know in the comments below!By Ubergizmo.
