OnePlus One team reveals a little of the CyanogenMod 11S interface

OnePlus_logo_on_black

In response to some leaked press renders of the upcoming OnePlus One smartphone, Carl Pei took to the company’s official forums to share some official pre-production images of the user interface. Named CyanogenMod 11S, the OnePlus One will be running a customized version of Cyanogen’s latest operating system.

If you are not a fan of the direction OnePlus has gone with the design of the CyanogenMod 11S customizations to the interface, you may note it appears to be a relatively easy step to load an Android Holo based theme.

Check out the images that were released below and let us know what you think in the comments.

LG Isai FL in pink leaks alongside some specifications

lg_isai_fl_pink

The upcoming LG Isai FL that is bound for Japan has leaked once again. This time, @evleaks has given us a look at it in pink. But the image is not the only piece provided with his tweet. Also included were some specifications. The LCD display, which pushes the bezel-less boundary, is 5.5 inches. Inside will be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz paired with 2GB of RAM. In addition to 32GB of internal storage, LG is including a microSD card slot.

While this handset is clearly covered with a skin produced by LG, Android 4.4 KitKat is at its core. And the outside of this device will actually be water-resistant to a degree. As I noted in the last leak for this device, it could be indicative of the LG G3 or even the Nexus 5 successor. The design language resembles both last year’s LG G2 and Nexus 5. In fact, it looks like a cross of the two.

Sony Xperia Z2 gets minor OTA update

Sony_Xperia_Z2_White_Official_02

The Xperia Z2, Sony’s flagship smartphone for this half of 2014, is receiving a small over-the-air update. It is still Android 4.4.2 KitKat, but the build has gone from 17.1.A.2.55 to 17.1.A.2.69 with this OTA update. There are some reports that Sony has shipped this build with some Xperia Z2 handsets and those without it will be getting it now. There are not major changes made with this update. It seems like Sony is just using it for bug fixes and performance improvements.

Images of the upcoming OnePlus One leak along with the StyleSwap covers

oneplus-one-render

With a few days left to the announcement of the upcoming OnePlus One smartphone, the company revealed a part of the CyanogenMod 11S interface earlier today and now, the press render of the device is finally available for everyone to see. 

As you can see, the front design of the device is very much similar to the Oppo Find 7, not to forget that OnePlus is founded by one of the former Oppo staff. The design looks beautiful and is pretty much the same as the one shown on the packaging and retail materials leaked earlier.

Don’t get too excited though and take it with a pinch of a salt as we can’t guarantee that the renders are accurate, although it looks similar to what we’ve expected. But that’s not all as the StypleSwap covers have been leaked also which will be available in textures such as bamboo, denim, sandstone, kevlar and silk.

Moto E is Motorola’s ultra-thin smartphone for Mexico

motorola_moto_e_logo_leak

Remember the Motorola device that leaked yesterday in with three variants? Those variants belong to the Moto E name. It has leaked again. The device, which is seemingly heading to Mexico (for now), is similar to the affordable Moto G; however, the specifications are slightly better and the price tag reflects that.

For roughly 2999 pesos (or $230) without a contract, the Moto E brings a 4.3-inch 720p display with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM powered by a 1900mAh battery. Internal memory integrated is sized at 4GB and a microSD card slot looks like it will be included. Also, a 5MP camera sits on the rear of the device.

But, as the headline says, the Moto E is very thin. It is just 6mm thin. That is the real star of the show here. Expect the Moto E to be released in Mexico within the next few weeks. This is part of Motorola’s plan to target Latin America with affordable devices, especially due to the success of the Moto G globally.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 rumored to feature a three sided Youm flexible display

samsung-galaxy-note-4-youm-display

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has already been rumored to include a 4K display and a possible Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset however, a latest report hints that it might also feature a remarkable flexible display.

Shortly after a Samsung representative stated that the Galaxy Note 4 will feature a “new form factor”, the Korean Media reported that the device will be the first smartphone to feature the “Youm” flexible display by Samsung. To add more to the flame, the same source, citing industry insiders, said that the screen will be three sided. But what is the use of a three sided screen? Well, it could be used to display various notifications such as messages, reminders or even the time.

The Design Flaw That Almost Wiped Out an NYC Skyscraper

Pickens continues:
LeMessurier and his team worked with Citicorp to coordinate emergency repairs. With the help of the NYPD, they worked out an evacuation plan spanning a 10-block radius. They had 2,500 Red Cross volunteers on standby, and three different weather services employed 24/7 to keep an eye on potential windstorms. Work began immediately, and continued around the clock for three months. Welders worked all night and quit at daybreak, just as the building occupants returned to work. But all of this happened in secret, even as Hurricane Ella, the strongest hurricane on record in Canadian waters, was racing up the eastern seaboard. The hurricane became stationary for about 24 hours, and later turned to the northeast away from the coast. Hurricane Ella never made landfall. And so the public—including the building’s occupants—were never notified.

Until his death in 2007, LeMessurier talked about the summer of 1978 to his classes at Harvard. The tale, as he told it, is by turns painful, self-deprecating, and self-dramatizing–an engineer who did the right thing. But it also speaks to the larger question of how professional people should behave. “You have a social obligation,” LeMessurier reminded his students. “In return for getting a license and being regarded with respect, you’re supposed to be self-sacrificing and look beyond the interests of yourself and your client to society as a whole.”"
