We got hold of this information from an earlier briefing during the SideSync unveil and if you look at the foreign press releases, the material only references the processor to be a ‘Quad Core processor’ but upon further inspection it seems like a partnership with AMD. Will Samsung be able to break away and manufacture their own processors in the future?
But wait, there’s more! The Syren uses Bluetooth and NFC technology to pair up your audio. If you’ve ever tried to pair your external speakers with a phone using Bluetooth, you may encounter some sync errors along the way and the only remedy for that is to try and try again. We’re all familiar with this and pairing up devices via Bluetooth can be a b*tch at times. So the proposition here is that the Syren uses NFC technology for pairing via Bluetooth. If you own a NFC-compatible device like the Samsung Galaxy S4, all you need to do is physically tap the phone onto the Syren and the pairing will automagically happen without you having to configure anything! Works like a charm!
The iLuv Syren has a SRP of PHP 3,000. For that price, you might as well get it as even though there aren’t too many NFC-enabled phones available today, this technology will be a stock feature in most smartphones soon.
