Samsung announces Galaxy S4 Mini

Dual-core 1.7GHz CPU, 4.3-inch qHD SuperAMOLED screen, UK launch in July

Samsung has announced the much-anticipated and heavily-leaked Galaxy S4 Mini. As the name suggests, it's a miniature version of the Galaxy S4, and like the Galaxy S3 Mini, it's packing suitably downsized specs inside its diminutive chassis.

The Galaxy S4 Mini rocks a 4.3-inch qHD (960x540) SuperAMOLED display, and is powered by a 1.7GHz dual-core processor with 1.5GB of RAM. Around the back there's an 8-megapixel camera, on the front is a 1.9MP front-facer. There's also 8GB of internal storage, expandable via microSD card. Powering everything is an 1,900mAh battery.

The Galaxy S4 Mini boasts many of the headline software features of its larger sibling. It's running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with the latest TouchWiz UI, and in today's press release Samsung highlights features like Sound and Shot, S Translator and S Health, as well as WatchON TV capabilities through a built-in IR blaster.

Connectivity-wise, you're looking at Wifi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and 3G/4G radios. Samsung says there'll be 3G, 4G LTE and dual-SIM variants, though the availability of these SKUs will vary depending on country.

The Galaxy S4 Mini will be shown off to attendees at Samsung's "Premiere 2013" event at London's Earls Court exhibition center on June 20. No release date has been revealed just yet, but the manufacturer did confirm that it'll be available in black and white color options.

We've got today's press release, along with more images, after the break.

Update: UK retailer Phones4u has confirmed that it'll offer the Galaxy S4 Mini "when it becomes available in the UK in July 2013."

Sony Plugin for XAVC in Final Cut Pro X (FCP-X) release

Sony have just released a plug-in for Apple’s Final Cut Pro X. The plugin allows you to work with HD and 4K XAVC material in FCP-X. As well as the plugin you will need to first update FCP-X to at least version 10.0.8. The handling of HD and 4K XAVC in FCP-X is very impressive with smooth 4K playback on my iMac and Retina MBP. It even handles scaling to HD for SDI output in real time with ease.

Reviews from customers of Pavtube Media Magician and Pavtube Media Magician for Mac:

1. Works well on Windows 8. Successfully transcoded a .TiVo file to MP4 format.

- D.C.

2. Runs flawlessly on Win7. It does lots of things Moviemaker can't do, like changing brightness etc. The conversions can be very useful as well. For me it is good to have. Thanks

- Sepp

3. …The benefit of lossless trimming for me is that often I set up one or more cameras at an event and let them roll, sometimes for hours. This is done in anticipation that something interesting might occur in that camera's field of view in the next couple of hours. Out of all those hours there might only be a few minutes I really want to keep. This results in enormous files with only a few seconds of really good footage. Ideally I wish to keep only the good bits and delete the rest but so far I've found no way to extract the bits I want to keep and delete the rest without any loss of video quality…

- Doug Thompson

4. Installed fine on Mac 10.7 and Win 7 ultimate 64.

- Beth

5. Pavtube Media Magican! Perfect for my use. I shot movie of my younger daughter few years ago. And with today I succeed to take still pictures out of the movie. And same time I edited mistakes out of the movie. I highly recommend it for Mac users!

- Jari, Lahti, Finland

6. Very nice program. I can now leave my PC and some of the editing software I've purchased over the years and now use my Mac with Media Magician. I just converted a bunch of Thanksgiving and Christmas videos and added some cool effects as well.

- Trey, Dallas, Texas

7. A very good program, I was able to import an AVI file, crop it to size, then imported an MP4 file, added the two files together play them without rendering and exported to an MKV file within minutes. Highly recommended.

- Stuart, Wordsley, West Midlands

Galaxy S III software leak reveals potential S4-class upgrades

Samsung appears to be making good on its promise to port Galaxy S4 features to the Galaxy S III. A test Android 4.2.2 update, discovered by SamMobile, includes the lockscreen effects and widgets, enhanced screen modes, updated settings, and new S Voice control features found in Samsung's new flagship. Samsung previously said it would include updates that were "not dependent on hardware," ruling out gestures like Air View and the smart TV remote app.

The Android update is currently undergoing internal testing and is available as an unofficial pre-release ROM, suggesting that the company could add or remove features before an official rollout — which is reportedly slated for June. Given the unofficial nature of the ROM, we don't recommend that you install it at this time.

Best Android Video Converter-Transfer 1080p/720p Video to Android Tablet & Phone

Google's Android mobile OS is considered one of the best alternatives to Apple's iOS when it comes to tablets computers and smartphones. More and more people are getting fond of Android OS to watch video and movies on their tablets including Asus Infinity TF700, Google Nexus 7, Transformer Prime,  Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Galaxy Tab 2and smartphones like Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Mega 5.8 and 6.3, Galaxy S4, HTC One, Google Nexus 4, HTC One Xand more.

We're not really surprised, and have seen this trend with our client, colleagues, friends and family members because of its open-source nature and powerful system equipments. Nowadays, it's common to have loads of 1080p/720p HD videos and movies stored on your HDD or home server. These 1080p/720p video materials always come from Blu-ray backups, camera footage, TiVo recordings, downloaded movie torrents, etc. Due to format restrictions, Android-based devices do not have native support for all these videos in different file types. 

Read Supported Video Formats for Android

"Dear all,

The above mentioned two programs have the same operation procedure, but running on different platforms. Here we run Pavtube Video to Android Converter Windows Version to guide you through how to transcode 1080p/720p Full HD movies to Android devices for playback.

How to put any 1080p/720p video to Android Tablet or Phone?

Step 1: Start up Pavtube 1080p/720p video to Android Converter, then click "Add video" or "Add from folder" tab to load your 1080p/720p source files.

Step 2: Click format menu to choose output format for playing any videos on your Android tablet or smartphone.

Most Android devices support below video and audio formats:

Video Codec: H.264
If there're universal codecs for Android devices, they must be H.264, MPEG-4 and H.263. Among them, H.264 is regarded as the most advanced codec and is widely used accepted.

Audio Codec: AAC/MP3
Every smartphone plays AAC and MP3 audio, but I'll suggest you choose AAC for better audio quality.

Video Format: MP4
MP4 is recommended because it is a most widely accepted video format for portable devices.

If you worry about getting a big video file larger than 4GB, you can use split feature in Pavtube software to split a large 1080p/720p file into multiple chunks under 4GB.
