Samsung today officially announced the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagships, and it looks like the South Korean electronics giant has another winner on its hands. Thankfully for anyone looking to purchase these new smartphones, pricing hasn't shifted too much compared to last year's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Here's a rundown of how much the smartphones will cost depending on which carrier you choose, or if you want to purchase straight from Samsung. Samsung Samsung is charging $719.99 for the Galaxy S9 and $839.99 for the Galaxy S9+, unlocked. If you don't care to plunk down that much money at once, Samsung offers financing options priced at $30 per month for the Galaxy S9 and $35 per month for... Read more...
Given that Qualcomm recently announced the availability and details for its next-generation Snapdragon 835 SoC, we just assumed that the incoming 2017 class of flagships would all be using the chip (after all, this is traditionally what has occurred year after year). Well, you know what they say when you assume things… However, 2017 is a new year and it looks as though there’s a shakeup in store for the status quo. It has been reported that Samsung has taken it upon itself to gobble up nearly all of Qualcomm’s initial Snapdragon 835 production. Samsung wants to ensure that it has an ample supply of the chips to fuel the likely voracious demand for its Galaxy S8 flagship.  In fact, "the Snapdragon... Read more...
Samsung is riding high following the debut of its flagship Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge smartphones. But while the Galaxy S5’s launch in early 2014 was joined by the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo smartwatches, a new smartwatch offering did not join the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge onstage. That was surprising for a company that released six smartwatches in the past 14 months and “still leads the smart band market” according to Canalys. Samsung and LG were the first to bring Android Wear devices to consumers, but while LG has made a significant leap from the lackluster G Watch to recently announced Watch Urbane, Samsung’s original Gear Live hasn’t seen a worthy successor. Even if we consider Samsung’s Tizen-based smartwatch... Read more...
No rest for the weary -- hot on the heels of technically losing (but really winning) a patent infringement trial brought forth by Apple, Samsung is supposedly gearing up to further flesh out its tablet family with the addition of the Galaxy Tab S. Word on the web is that the Galaxy Tab S will come in two display sizes -- an 8.4-inch model and a 10.5-inch SKU. Both will be the first tablets to sport an AMOLED display with a WQXGA resolution (2560x1600). Samsung clearly isn't messing around here. While the South Korean electronics maker has taken advantage of this display technology in its smartphones and digital cameras, it's been mostly missing in the tablet category. If you recall, the Galaxy... Read more...
Talk about closing out the year with a bang. The CyanogenMod team has plenty of reason to celebrate going into 2014, not the least of which is notching over 10 million downloads of its installer software to date, according to the CyanogenMod stats page. The most popular version so far is the Nightly-10.1 build -- it's been downloaded more than 1.1 million times alone. Samsung Galaxy S device owners have proven the most eager to try out CyanogenMod's installer. Collectively, this group of users has installed CyanogenMod on over half a million Galaxy S handsets, followed by the Galaxy S II with just shy of half a million and the Galaxy S III representing an additional 461,501 installations. That's... Read more...
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones are highly regarded among Android users and a large reason why the South Korean handset maker is able to give Apple a run for its money. At the same time, if there's one complaint that Samsung has yet to fully address, it's that some people feel there's too much plastic in the construction, giving phones like the Galaxy S4 a cheaper feel than, say, an iPhone 5 or the all-aluminum HTC One. If the rumors are true, then it would appear Samsung has heard your complaints and will address them in the next iteration of the Galaxy S. As the rumor goes, the Galaxy S5, or whatever the next model ends up being called, will go with a metal design, perhaps aluminum.. Image... Read more...
This is something the folks running Mobile World Congress won't be happy about. Rather than using the year's largest mobile show to unveil the next generation Galaxy S smartphone, Samsung is doing something that more and more companies are doing: throwing its own party. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is likely to be Samsung's flagship reveal in Barcelona, while the item that most everyone was truly waiting on (the GSIV) will be revealed to the masses in its own event in New York City next month. The date is March 14th, and you can bet that Samsung's monster marketing budget will extend to push this thing in a huge way. With Apple (likely) still months out from unveiling a new iPhone, the Galaxy S IV will... Read more...
Like many companies, Samsung is gearing up for CES 2013. There has been plenty of speculation as to when Samsung will officially unveil the follow up to its flagship Galaxy S III smartphone.

Samsung's Galaxy S IV smartphone is rumored to feature... Read more...
New rumors suggest Samsung may be planning to reveal the successor to its very popular Galaxy S III smartphone at CES in January. Referred to as the Galaxy S IV, the new smartphone is said to have a 5-inch full HD AMOLED display with a pixel density of 441 pixels-per-inch. This display could support a resolution of 1920 x 1080. Screen size is a definite focus among many Android smartphone manufacturers today. Given that Samsung's competition in the smartphone market such as HTC, Sony, and LG have announced and/or launched 5-inch full HD displays, it's not hard to believe Samsung is working on something similar. The Galaxy S IV is also said to feature a quad-core Exynos processor and 4G LTE capabilities.... Read more...

It's no secret that Samsung's Galaxy S III has been a huge hit among Android fans. As a result, the company is already predicting impressive sales numbers. In July, Samsung expects sales of the latest Galaxy smartphone to surpass 10 million. Of course this is on a global scale, not just in the United States. What's remarkable is that the Galaxy S III has the potential to hit the 10-million milestone within two months of its launch. Samsung began offering the Galaxy S III in Europe on May 29. The phone was released to U.S. carriers last week. Yesterday, Samsung began offering the phone in its home market. By the end of July, about 300 mobile carriers in 147 countries will offer the Galaxy S III.... Read more...
Although Samsung has already made it known that the company won't be announcing the highly-anticipated Galaxy S III smartphone at Mobile World Congress this year, that hasn't stopped specs of this hot phone from leaking onto the web.   One of the reasons Samsung isn't planning to announce the Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress is because it wants to shorten the gap between announcing the phone and actually launching it around the world. When the time comes, Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy S III in over 50 markets or cities simultaneously. Some of the reported specs for the Samsung Galaxy S III include a 4.8-inch full HD 1080p resolution display with 16:9 aspect ratio, a ceramic back,... Read more...
