Samsung Z4 user manual reveals dual LED flash

Image
We’ve already seen multiple reports which suggest that Samsung’s next Tizen smartphone is going to be the Samsung Z4 bearing model number SM-Z400F. This handset has already been spotted at the FCC and has even received its Wi-Fi certification.The user manual of the Samsung Z4 now appears to have surfaced online. It reveals that the handset is going to feature a rather interesting rear flash setup.Not only will the handset have a front flash it’s actually going to have two separate LEDs at the back which will function as the flash. As expected, the Samsung Z4 is going to be the first smartphone from Samsung that runs Tizen 3.0 straight out of the box.The manual doesn’t actually reveal much about the actual specifications of the handset so we may have to wait for a while before that information becomes public. Samsung is yet to confirm when it’s going to launch its next-generation Tizen smartphone.

Galaxy S8 Tip: How to enable Smart Stay on Galaxy S8 and S8+

Image
The Smart Stay feature, which Samsung debuted with the Galaxy S3 five years ago, is still present in the recently released Galaxy S8 and S8+. However, it’s turned off by default. When activated, the Smart Stay feature keeps the screen on while you’re looking at it.The feature uses the front-facing camera of the smartphone to know whether you’re looking at the screen. If it suits your use case and if you want to try it out, here’s how you can enable the Smart Stay feature on your Galaxy S8 or S8+.Step 1: Open the Settings menu either from the home screen, app drawer, or notifications shade.Step 2: Locate and select the Advanced Features menu.Step 3: And then activate the Smart Stay toggle, and it’s done!
Note: This feature consumes additional battery power because the front-facing camera turned on to monitor whether you’re looking at the screen, so your phone’s battery life might reduce. Moreover, it works only in well-lit conditions, but not under direct sunlight.
