This site needs registration, but registration is free and after that you can download a firmware. This file is going to take a little bit more time to download because file size is around 1.8 giga bytes.

Qualcomm Announced Next generation Snapdragon 805 Ultra HD processor



Qualcomm introduced  the next generation mobile processor Snapdragon 805.  Snapdragon 805 is the first commercial mobile processor that supports Ultra HD display, including support for Ultra HD UI, gaming and imaging, as well as video capture and playback. 

Ultra HD Display:

Snapdragon 805 powered devices not only allow users to enjoy the crystal-clear Ultra HD on-device display resolution, but they’ll also be able to simultaneously output Ultra HD content to an HDTV and that's really something people were waiting for.

Camera:

Snapdragon 805 processors also allow users to take, edit and share higher quality photos in low light conditions. The world’s first commercial mobile 1GPixel/s (Giga-pixel per second) ISP (image signal processor) packs a large increase in ISP and CPP (camera postprocessor) speed and throughput, empowering users to take sharper, higher resolution photos with advanced post-processing features for low light conditions.


Graphics and Gaming:
Snapdragon 805 powered devices are equipped with Adreno 420 GPU which is expected to perform smooth in gaming and  this the first commercial mobile GPU to introduce hardware tessellation and geometry shaders, which provide greater detail for visually stunning, realistic scenes and objects in a manner that requires less memory bandwidth and lower power consumption, so hopefully the devices will have less heating issues. 
Fast, Seamless Connectivity:
Snapdragon 805 processor will enjoy fast, seamless connected mobile experiences, thanks to Qaulcomm 4th generation LTE modem, the MDM9x35. which is first commercial 20nm modem chipset and the first commercial chipset to support 40MHz LTE Advanced CA on both LTE TDD and LTE FDD duplexing modes. It also allows LTE Category 6 data rates of up to 300 Mbps download, so its going to be faster than its predecessor. 
The Snapdragon 805 processor is expected to be available in commercial devices by the first half of 2014 and I am sure lot of tech lovers are eager to get there hands on this mighty chip devices.

Samsung Unveils First Curved Display Handset Samsung Galaxy Round




Samsung unveiled  first curved display device with  5.7 inches of curved or flexible display that supports Snapdragon 800 processor with 3gb of ram. The phone itself doesn’t fit in a phone category neither in a tablet category and it’s better to give it a phablet category like Galaxy Mega 6.3, Note 3  launched by Samsung.

Display

Round  packs Super AMOLED flexible  display  that runs at 1080p resolution with 386 pixels per inch. 

Hardware:

Round is powered with mighty Snapdragon 800 processor with a 2.3 GHZ clock speed and 3gb of Ram, this is a best clock speed you can have in your mobile until now with 3gb of ram like Note 3. Round  have powerful Adreno 330 GPU same Gpu that we have on Note 3, LG G2 and Xperia Z Ultra to push all the power for gaming and graphics. Hardware is one of the strength in this mobile as it introduces you to most powerful Snapdragon 800 with over clock cpu speed and this is with 3gb of ram.

Design

Despite the fact Round sports 5.7 inches of display the Round  is thinner and lighter than Note 3, measuring 151.1 x 79.6 and its 7.9mm thick and weighs just 154grams. Its easy to grip Round in comparison to  Note 3 due to its curved design and its fit easily in your hand as compared to note 3 for doing one hand operation. On the back of a device you will have a same leather textured removable plastic battery cover with fake stitching which looks good and give you some sort of premium feel.

Software

Round ships  with Android 4.3 and runs Samsung Touchwiz with a same feature that we have on Note 3 and  S4, like air gesture, air view, smart scroll, smart stay and many motion sensors that we have on S4, Note 3. However, a downside of Round is absence of Spen that we have on Note 3.  

Internal Memory

There's 32GB of built-in storage, while a microSD slot will add upto 64GB if needed. 

Connectivity

Round packs 4G LTE-A  connectivity, HD Voice along with NFC, Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS, AGPS, Wifi Tethering and packs all other connectivity options that we have on S4.

Battery

Round is equipped with removable 2800 mAh battery which seems to me lower than the power of might 3200mah available on Note 3

Camera

Round has 13 MP camera at the back which is capble of recording 1080p and 4k videos from it and supports HDR for both stills and movies with Dual shot mode like S4 Camera with single flash. On the front of Round we have 2 Mega pixel camera similar to Xperia Z Ultra and LG G2. 

Final Verdict

To give my final verdict we are going to use a SWOT analysis below

Strength

Round packs a considerable beautiful 5.7 inches 1080p curved display which is so called flexible Amoled Display  with a superior design, better camera and strong processor.

Weakness
One of the weaknesses I have found in Round  is its build quality for some of the users and unrelated Touchwiz  software features which people think slow down a device and doesn’t make any good use for them. Another weakness is its round shape which seems to me curved rather than a flexible display because you can not flex it.

Opportunity

3gb of ram is the biggest opportunity Samsung can avail by introducing a Snapdragon 800 processor in its first curved phone.

Threats

The biggest threat to Round is Lg Flex, but Lg flex supports 720p where as Round supports 1080p display.
