Linkase Pro LTE Case Takes A Page From The Past To Improve Your Signal

by Lucas Lau · 10 hours ago · No Comments · 394 views

linkase-pro-lte-640x394

Back in the early days of the mobile phone, there was no impressive new internal antenna system; What there was however were those retractable antennas that looked every bit as curious as you remember. Enter the Linkase Pro LTE case for the iPhone and just like its previous model, it boosts your LTE data radio.

Using a sliver of an antenna which can be extended in time of extreme need for LTE, it says that the case will also save you battery because your phone doesn’t need to constantly switch between Edge, 3G and LTE. Not sure how effective this is, but all i know is that some of us definitely need one to improve OVERALL cellular signal in Malaysia. The Linkase Pro LTE case is currently a prototype and is seeking funding on IndieGoGo

Samsung’s Android Wear Watch And Tizen Smartphone To Come This Year

In an interview with Reuters, Samsung’s Senior VP for Product Strategy, Han Kil Yoon has confirmed that they will be releasing an Android Wear smartwatch and “high-end” Tizen based Smartphone this year. This is almost eerily similar to last year when those plans did not come through due to “poor market conditions”. Samsung have said that they will be concentrating their efforts mainly in “a few countries they can do well in”.

If this is to be believed we will be getting a high end Tizen phone by the end of june and the Android Wear watch by the end of the year. I for one will be excited to see what the combination of Android Wear and perhaps a curved display will bring!

The name Amazon may not be the first thing on your mind when you talk about a smartphone but if all things goes to plan with their first smartphone, it may just be a talking point for a  while to come. While the above image resembles the lovechild of a Lumia device and a BlackBerry Z device, it’s worth noting that it’s merely a case to house internals and is not the actual finished design.
