We already had a strong hunch that it was coming to US Cellular, thanks to the FCC, but now it's official: Samsung's iconic Galaxy S II is finally making its way to the regional carrier in the coming weeks for $230 on a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate. This version of the GSII offers the same 1.2GHz dual-core Exynos CPU found in the original version, as well as a 4.
Samsung is rumored to release their first round-face smartwatch but we don't know when exactly. It's not really a mystery since hints of a round-shaped user interface is already on the Samsung Gear page for developers. Actually, we saw some clues about an upcoming smartwatch with rotating bezel from Samsung as early as November last year.
Samsung is always working on the next big thing when it comes to smartphones. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are old news on the market and prices are already coming down in an effort to move more devices. Samsung has never been exactly watertight when it comes to details leaking about future products. A recent leak has dropped a few hints about the Galaxy S7 smartphone.
The Galaxy Note 5 have yet to be revealed but we've been hearing a lot of rumors about it. We first learned that it would be ready for the next Gear VR but we all know that a new one was already released for the Galaxy S6/S6 edge recently. We believe that the Note 5 would come with the highest pixel density and even before it arrives, a new Galaxy Note 5 Edge might be introduced.
Pitting the Galaxy Note 5 against its most recent predecessor, the Galaxy Note 4, we see a device that gets a rather interesting kick in the specs. While the device's basic premise doesn't change - it's still a big phone with a Samsung-made unique stylus inside - the design gets a reboot. Taking after its closest cousin, the Galaxy S6, the detailing on this smartphone becomes refined.
As with the past Galaxy flagship phones from Samsung , we can expect that the S6 and the S6 edge will have several variants. The latest models announced during the CES 2015 impressed a lot of Android fans but sadly, they're not waterproof like the Galaxy S5 . However, Samsung is believed to be working on a waterproof and a more rugged version of the phone which will be the new Galaxy S6 Active.
Samsung has finally announced the nitty gritty details, or at least some of it, when its prime smartphones launch in the US. The Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge will arrive in the US via multiple carriers, both postpaid and prepaid, and many, many retailers. This all starts on March 27, when you can put down a pre-order for either, or maybe even both, of the two.
If you were still picking sides following the launch ofHTC's One M9and theSamsung Galaxy S6, there's now a bit more to work with. Retailer B&H Electronics has (accidentally?)revealedthat a 32GB flavor of the HTC One M9 will start shipping on March 25th for $649.
Samsung Electronics has more reasons to celebrate as its latest flagship Android devices received a total of 20 million pre-orders. That's a record high for the South Korean tech giant who is hoping that the two new models will exceed the past smartphones particularly the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S5. The first country to receive pre-orders of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge was the Netherlands.
Are you already confused with so many Samsung Galaxy devices out in the market, and very little distinguishing one line from the other? Well, get ready to be even more confused as the Korean OEM is set to release a new series which will be called On or O (depending on the region where it will be released) and is closely similar to the entry-level Galaxy J devices.
As the countdown to the official release of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge gets nearer and nearer, the OEM has also been announcing their partnerships with designers for various accessories that can enhance the soon-to-be-yours smartphones, even just in terms of design.
Samsung fans are eagerly awaiting the release of the upcoming newest member of the Galaxy Note family. Tradition says it will come out in September, in a side-event at the IFA in Berlin, which is where the four Notes were unveiled year after year. But a rumor is now spreading that it might actually come earlier than expected and be released as early as August.
Samsung has opened the public beta of its new phone-based Pay service ahead of its official launch late next month. Beta participants will need to have a Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Note 5, or S6 Edge+ ( unrooted, mind you ) as well as a credit or debit card from US Bank (Visa) or Bank of America (Visa or MasterCard). Additionally, they'll need cellular service from AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, or US Cellular.
This week is bringing events from a few big companies, but Samsung is not one of them. Instead, the Korean company will be having its next event in mid-August, but before that it has started teasing what we can expect.
How fast is the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge ? We already know the phone is tough and ready for rough use according to a recent drop test video we've seen but is the phone speedy enough? The South Korean tech giant boasts that the Samsung Exynos 7 Octacore processor makes the Galaxy S6 edge very fast. This is the first time Samsung has ditched theQualcomm Snapdragon for its very own Exynos processor.
Samsung's latest Galaxy S6 and S6 edge may already be making waves and running the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop version but the two still don't have a new TouchWiz . The South Korean giant's very own user interface on the smartphones is still the old version. Owners have been craving for a redesign to match the new phone themebut there haven't been anything official from Samsung yet.
We've been focusing our attention to the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge a lot lately because the two are hot subjects of reviews and stress tests but we haven't forgotten about the Samsung Galaxy S4 . The 2013 flagship can still get the sweet mobile OS update from AT&T. This was one of those many expected things since the Android Lollipop for the Galaxy S4 LTE-A is ready for download.
Samsung Pay is set to launch by September 29, but as early as now, you can sign up and be a beta tester. There are certain requirements that you need to meet in order to qualify for the program, specifically regarding your Samsung unit, having an active account, having a qualifying credit card, and lastly, which carrier you’re currently subscribed to.
