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.
Cat. 4, Cat. 6, and now Cat. 10. These chipmakers are really pushing the cellular capabilities of their products to the limits, perhaps even faster than networks can actually adopt these network speeds. Of course, that has never been a reason for the likes of Qualcomm and Samsung to take it easy.
Samsung -centric tech blog Sam Mobile has once again called upon the power of their Samsung sources and all but confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy S4 – last year’s flagship smartphone – will get an official update to Android 5.0.
With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in Germany comes proof that Samsung needs to do something BRAND NEW with their Galaxy S lineup. Earlier this year - soon after the Galaxy Note Edge was announced - Samsung announced they'd be bringing the Note Edge to Germany. On one condition: they'd have to vote on it.
Not sure whether to buy the Galaxy S5 or the new iPhone 6? Rumor has it that Samsung is coming out with its next Galaxy flagship. According to SamMobile , the new Galaxy S phone will be called the Galaxy S6. Is it stirring up excitement for Android users as the iPhone 6 did? As of right now it doesn’t seem so because Samsung is in the early stages of development for the new Galaxy S6.
It's called codename Project Zero, they say, and it'll change the way the Samsung Galaxy line has been evolving over the past several years. If the Samsung Galaxy S III was Samsung's coming of age, the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be a revolution. Of design, mostly - not so much on the specifications. We're in a stagnated state of affairs in the smartphone business across the board, after all. It's the physical design of the smartphone that'll be changing, not necessarily the experience.
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 shown it's not afraid to chase big legal injunctions when it believes its patents are at stake, and now it's NVIDIA facing a US sales block at the hands of the South Korean firm. A complaint filed on Friday asks the US International Trade Commission to shut down sales of NVIDIA 's graphics chips, alleging they infringe Samsung's own intellectual property.
If today's report on the sales of the Galaxy S5 are true, Samsung's next release will need to be a doozy. We previously had a chat on what Samsung was potentially getting into with the Galaxy S6 - how they may be working on a "Project Zero", a reboot of the entire series, a re-imagining of the smartphone monster they've created.

Things have been relatively quiet on the mobile front this week, seemingly the great quiet before the storm. Of course, that doesn't mean nothing of importance passed us by. This week saw one of the biggest updates to Android Wear: official support for watch faces. We've also seen a good number of games land on Android. India also continues to be mired in controversy .
This week a tip has come in from Korea that Apple may well have made up and shaken hands with Samsung for future chip production. This would be a multi-billion-dollar deal as it would remove TSMC from the equation, pushing Samsung back into the limelight for Apple device innards. Samsung has been a chipmaker for Apple before, but they had a bit of a falling out over the past several years.
If you’ve followed Samsung for a while, you know that they like to put out two variants of their flagship phones – one usually armed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which usually is the international version.
There were rumors last month of Samsung coming out with another series of smartphones which will parallel the single letter naming convention of the Galaxy S line and the more recent “A Series”. The then-upcoming “U Series” was rumored to be a high-end line, focusing on super-slim form factors. But whispers from within the company are saying that this development may be on hold.
We know the Samsung Galaxy S4 is getting Android 5.0 Lollipop update but we don't know when the Russians would be able to get their hands on the sweet version. A Galaxy S4 with Lollipop build was leaked a few months ago after a related rumor came out. Of course, the Android 5.0 update was officially released for the Galaxy S4 but only made available in a few countries.
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.
All the great features and functions of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has been extensively covered, which started when it was just rumors and continued when the OEM hyped up the latest version of its phablet line. All its secrets have been revealed, or so that's what we thought.
