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.
We've seen a bunch of different leaks on the Galaxy S7 smartphone over the last few weeks. One of those leaks claimed that the S7 would come in two models with one using a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and the other using Samsung's own Exynos chip. The thing we were wondering is where each model would be offered.
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.
A new Galaxy tablet is coming. Yet another Galaxy Tab? Nope. Surprisingly, the South Korean tech giant decided on a new series name this time. The upcoming Android tablet is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy View which was also teased during the IFA 2015 last month. The tablet is said to have a larger display and is aimed for the homes, offices, and classrooms.
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.
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.
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.
"Anything you can do, I can do better." That seems to be, or has always been, Samsung 's theme in its rivalry with Apple . It was the first to out a 12.2-inch tablet, larger than any Android tablet or iPad ever conceived. Now that Apple is rumored to also have a large iPad Pro coming soon, Samsung is raising the stakes by increasing the size. How big, you ask? Well, 18.
One of the problems with leaks is that there is really no telling which leak is the most accurate one until the fated day finally arrives. Take for example the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, whose leaks are starting to heat up as the August 13 announcement date fast approaches. Many aspects of the S Pen phablet remains in limbo, like the presence, or absence, of an auto eject mechanism for the stylus.
The latest Android Wear platform is almost ready to roll out on some of the newest smartwatch models in the market today and Samsung would like to join in the fun by sending out invites to some developers to try out the Software Development Kit (SDK) of the next generation Galaxy Gear--which could be round this time based on the images on the invitation.
No doubt the Samsung Galaxy S6 is one of the best smartphones in the market this year. We've heard numerous positive reviews and have watched several stress tests already. It was even tagged as the Top 1 Performance Smartphone in Q1 by AnTuTu. Model was quickly followed by the Galaxy S6 edge for obvious reasons--they are very similar.
It seems that Samsung might have finally heard users' prayers. At least for now. And at least based on an unverified, and probably unintentional, data source. The User Agent Profile of a major US carrier's website has seemingly spilled the beans on the specs of the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 as well as the Galaxy S6 edge Plus.
