We’re starting to see more and more people getting their hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8, so for those of you looking for some help in rooting your device, XDA Recognized Developer dr.ketan has made a simple step-by-step guide for you. This guide will walk you through how to gain root access to the device using SuperSU. The developer also promises to provide an EFS backup tool so you can save the important data in this partition.
Once your device is rooted, you open up the device to some interesting modifications such as flashing the popular audio mod called Viper4Android. Of course, there are already a ton of things you can do without root on Samsung devices such as blocking ads and disabling bloatware, but having root access is an added benefit nonetheless.

[Techleaks]The rumored Amazon Echo touchscreen speaker image leaks

Update : Evan “@evleaks” Blass has just posted higher-res images of the Amazon touchscreen speaker on his Twitter account.

Rumors have been found recently that claim Amazon is planning to release a new member of its Echo family, Echo connected speaker that would also have a touchscreen. Now a very tiny image of what that product may look like has been uncovered on Amazon’s site.

The image was discovered by AFTVNews, after finding it through Amazon’s web servers. As you can see in both the original image and its highly magnified version, it shows a rather pixelrated looking box-like product that looks quite a lot like an old TV set. The render shows some kind of camera on top of the screen, while the speaker is below it.

We hope that this image is not the final design for the Echo touchscreen speaker, but rather an old concept. However, we also have to be prepared that this may be what Amazon wants. It will be interesting to see how Amazon combines the Alexa-based connected speaker parts of this product to the touchscreen.

What do you think of this new concept of the Amazon Echo touchscreen speaker? Let us know your views in the comments below.
