In case you haven’t been paying attention, Samsung has been extremely quiet on the smartwatch front for the past year following the launch of the Gear S. After releasing a flood of smartwatches during 2013 and 2014, the company has been relatively quiet on the smartwatch front while Android Wear devices and the Apple Watch have started to gain some traction. The lack of new product releases doesn’t mean that Samsung has abandoned the category; quite the contrary in fact. Samsung is hard at work on its Gear A “Orbis” smartwatch, which could be revealed as soon as this September at IFA in Berlin.... Read more...
We’re just days away from its official reveal, but the Galaxy S6 Edge leaks just continue to drip from Samsung’s leaky faucet. Yesterday, we posted some real life images of the Galaxy S6 Edge and its Galaxy S6 sibling. Today, CNET Korea has gotten its hands on official press renders of the Galaxy S6 Edge and it’s quite a striking device. The device in seen from multiple angles, clearly showing off its curved display which wraps around the left and right edges. We also get glimpses of the enlarged home button when is said to be home to a Touch ID-esque touch fingerprint sensor. We also get a clear... Read more...
This has been a crazy week for Samsung Galaxy S6 news. On Tuesday, Samsung actually posted a teaser image of the Galaxy S6 that appeared to show a device with a curved screen similar to that found on the Galaxy Note 4. Then on Wednesday, leaked photos showed what appears to be the final production chassis for the Galaxy S6. But there was something about these two stories that didn’t quite add up — the photos of the S6 chassis don’t match up with the apparent “curved” display on the Samsung teaser. According a few more fresh leaks, all is starting to come clear. As we have previously reported, there... Read more...
A few months ago, Nvidia sued Samsung and Qualcomm for alleged infringement on various GPU patents, despite the fact that these patents were ancient, extremely broad, and could easily be used to sue anyone in the mobile industry. Samsung responded this week by counter-suing Nvidia over an equally broad set of patents -- and then upped the ante by suing Velocity Micro. Velocity Micro, if you haven't heard of them, is a small boutique builder in Richmond Virginia. This isn't a case of "David vs. Goliath" so much as a case of Goliath ambushing David in high school and beating him up for his lunch... Read more...
The oft-rumored Samsung Galaxy S5 mini is now official. Samsung posted a press release today announcing the smaller version of its flagship Galaxy S5, a 4.5-inch HD Super AMOLED (1280x720) device that’s dwarfed a bit by its 5.1-inch big brother. This handset has the same design as the full-size S5, including the perforated back and soft grip. It’s powered by a “Quad Core 1.4GHz” processor (that is presumed to be the Samsung Exynos 3470 SoC), and it has 1.5GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage, and runs Android 4.4 (KitKat). The rear camera is 8MP with autofocus and LED flash,... Read more...

Samsung says that with your purchase, you’ll... Read more...
Samsung announced the next generation of its chromebook series with the 11.6- and 13.3-inch Chromebook 2 laptops that have unique pleather stitching on the chassis and specs that are starting to match up more with “real” notebooks. The two chromebooks, which are identical save for their respective sizes and the fact that the 13.3-inch model has a 1920x1080 display resolution (as opposed to the 11.6-inch model’s 1366x768) and a slightly better 8.5-hour battery, feature a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa processor (2.1GHz, 2MBL2 cache), 4GB DDR3L-1600 RAM, and 16GB of onboard storage in the...

It would appear that Samsung aspires to having mobile devices in every conceivable screen size, and not content with traditional size limitations of tablets, the company announced a pair of 12.2-inch tablets called the Galaxy NotePRO and Galaxy TabPRO. The Galaxy TabPro also comes in 10.1 and 8.4-inch configurations. The 12.2-inch devices offer a 16:10 widescreen orientation and an impressive resolution of 2560x1600, which makes them essentially perfect for watching movies on the go. They also feature the personalized Magazine UX that offers a dashboard with a newsfeed and easy access to your most... Read more...
We’re already hungry for more information about the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S4, which is presumably going to be dubbed the Samsung Galaxy S5, and Rightware has offered up a benchmark result that could be from the new phone. The handset that posted the score is listed as the Samsung SM-G900F, which Rightware says could be the Galaxy S5. The device scored a 3303.88 in BrowserMark, good for third place out of all handsets tested. The device is running a slightly older browser, Chrome 28, and Rightware noted that if it had the up-to-date Chrome 31, it may have leapfrogged the second-place... Read more...
Although owners of the new-ish Samsung Galaxy S4 may still be swooning over the popular smartphone, the successor to Samsung’s flagship phone is already in the works. A new report has emerged that pegs the Samsung Galaxy S5’s release for March of 2014, with mass production beginning in January. It will come in two variants, one with an aluminum and a bendable OLED display, and another sporting the same sort of plastic body we’re used to seeing from Samsung. Other reports indicate that the aluminum S5 will rock a 64-bit Exynos processor while the plastic version will have a Qualcomm... Read more...
For the past few years, ARM has been steadily chipping away at rival PowerVR's domination of the Android and tablet GPU space. While Imagination Technologies dominated the early days of the industry, we've seen a number of competitors emerge since, thanks to aggressive products from Nvidia at the high end and companies like Vivante in the lower-end and midrange spaces. With Mali, ARM is trying to offer a comprehensive solution that can span the entire market, from budget products aimed at Eastern nations to high-end hardware suitable for a next-generation smartphone or tablet. Today, ARM is announcing... Read more...
The latest Chromebook to hit the market is the HP Chromebook 11, an 11.6-inch notebook with a cool white or black finish and a decidedly Google-ish colored stripe around the keyboard area and on the lid. If you were eagerly anticipating a Chromebook running an Intel Haswell chip, though, pump the brakes--this model has a Samsung Exynos 5250 GAIA processor inside. The 16:9 display is an IPS panel with a resolution of 1366x768, and there’s a clickable touchpad on board. The Chromebook 11 has 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 16GB of SSD storage, 100GB of Google Drive storage (free for two years), and for connectivity,... Read more...
Although Samsung’s Galaxy Tab devices are generally very fine products, the sheer number of SKUs in the line make individual Tabs less interesting. However, there’s a rumor that the upcoming Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will be packing an Intel chip instead of a homegrown Samsung Exynos or other mobile processor. According to Android Authority, a GLBenchmark test shows that model GT-P5210 (believed to be the model number for the Galaxy Tab 3 10.1) has an Intel Clovertrail chip inside, which the site says is the 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z2560. Judging from the information, the Intel processor would be... Read more...
The hits from Samsung just keep on coming. With the ink barely dry on press releases announcing the long-awaited Samsung Galaxy S4, we already have leaks concerning the Galaxy Note III. A Chinese website leaked the image of a (very greasy-looking) alleged Samsung Galaxy Note III, which boasts a large 5.9-inch (1080p) display, Samsung Exynos 5410 SoC (quad core, 2.0GHz A15 and quad core, 1.2GHz A7), 3GB of RAM (really?), 32GB of storage, and Android 4.2.2. Presumably, it will also include the S-Pen. The site pegs the release date as early as mid-June. Galaxy Note III (L) On the more official side,... Read more...
