Samsung is already working to redefine high-definition tablets and put a 4K display in your rucksack. The South Korean company has this week been showing off a new tablet prototype with a super sharp 12-inch screen that’s enough to make a 1080p movie look like a VHS.

LG has not yet unveiled the G3 yet but that has not stopped the specs of the mini version of its upcoming flagship from leaking on the Internet. According to the documents that the folks over at MyLGPhones have stumbled upon, the LG G3 mini will be codenamed B2 mini (G3 is codenamed B2) and will sport a 720p resolution display of unknown dimensions. 


One of the major issues with the YouTube app on Android is that it only plays back HD videos if your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network. Over 3G, the app only provides the option to playback videos in “HQ” mode.

With Android devices now packing full HD and higher resolution screens, watching videos on HQ mode is quite an eyesore. At the very least, Google should provide an option to view videos in HD mode even when streaming videos over mobile network.

Thankfully, a developer over at XDA forums has released a modded version of the YouTube app that allows for 720p/1080p video playback over 3G or Wi-Fi. The app will be especially handy for DROID DNA, HTC One, Galaxy S4 and other 1080p Android handset users, where videos in HQ mode don’t do justice to the screen of these phones.


Google has been keen to show us what Google Glass can do, and this week the company revealed the specifications behind the magic. In addition to a 5-megapixel camera capably of recording 720p video, the snazzy spectacles will pack 16GB of internal storage, and a 640×360 display that is the “equivalent of a 25 inch high definition screen from eight feet away,” according to Google.


The Huawei Ascend P2, a new high-end Android smartphone that’s expected to get its grand unveiling at Mobile World Congress next month, has already shown its face in a leaked press shot. A previous rumor claimed the device would be more of a midrange handset than a high-end contender, but according to the latest information, there’s nothing midrange about this device.
