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 will be two versions of the flagship smartphone available to consumers: a Galaxy S6 — which you... Read more...
Samsung isn't afraid to take risks on occasion, like when it began selling smartphones with screens so big that people began referring to them as phablets. The South Korean handset maker proved there was a market for these devices, but is the same true for its Galaxy Note Edge and its curved edge screen that wraps around the side? That's yet to be determined. According to a report from Korean publication DT, Samsung has only sold 630,000 Galaxy Note Edge devices around the world so far. That's a long way from the 1 million mark, and far less than the 4.5 million Galaxy Note 4 handsets that were sold within its first month of availability, though it is just enough to indicate that there's some...

We applaud companies willing to push the envelope with innovative new design approaches. Sometimes their efforts aren't rewarded with complete market acceptance, but unique features and hardware that attempt to blaze new trails in existing markets, are always interesting to say the least. In a way, the Galaxy Note Edge fits this description. Similar to 4K curved televisions, one has to wonder if the world truly needs a flagship smartphone with 160 extra pixels along its right edge with an additional curved display. But, as was the case when the original Note launched and many experts shook their heads in disapproval, the Note Edge could strike a chord with consumers and usher in... Read more...
As we're seeing in the smartphone wars, size matters these days, but lest you think the segment is growing stale with little else to offer than bigger displays, wait until you see Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy Note Edge. It's the first smartphone of its kind with a functional, curved display that wraps around the side, and it's scheduled to land in the U.S. on November 14. We went hands-on with the Galaxy Note Edge during Samsung's Unpacked event in New York City earlier this year, and while we'll reserve judgement for an official review, we can say that this is one handset we're excited to see enter the market place. The curved screen compliments the main display, and you can still access frequently... Read more...
Yesterday at its Unpacked Event in New York City, Samsung announced a couple of new high-end smartphones and a companion virtual reality headset, namely the Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Note Edge, and the Galaxy Gear VR. Just in case you missed the initial announcement, the Galaxy Note 4 features a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560x1440) Super AMOLED display, 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm SnapDragon 805 processor or 1.9GHz octa-core (1.9GHz quad-core + 1.3GHz quad-core) processor, depending on the region, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 16MP rear-facing camera with fast autofocus and Smart OIS, a 3.7MP front-facing camera with f1.9, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, USB 2.0, and a...

Samsung announced some exciting products today during its Unpacked event, among them the newest Galaxy Note device, the Galaxy Note 4. Not only is the Galaxy Note 4 faster and more power efficient than its predecessor, it also brings with it an evolved S Pen with several improvements intended to make it feel more like a real pen. The Galaxy Note 4 features a 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560x1440) Super AMOLED display. Samsung showed a side-by-side comparison of its Super AMOLED screen next to a regular Quad HD LCD, and while we'll reserve judgement until we do the same in person, the Super AMOLED was clearly more vibrant and colorful. Have a look for yourself: Other hardware features include either a 2.7GHz... Read more...
