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 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.
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.
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.
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.

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 .
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.
What you're about to see might very well be the first appearance of the Samsung Galaxy S6. This device has been tipped to be the new "project zero" for the company, meaning they're attempting to bring their top-selling line through a new door to re-bolster sales. What this prototype image suggests is that they will indeed be releasing such a device - not exactly in looks, but with functionality.
Let's take a break from smartwatches and smartphones for a while and focus our attention on Samsung's Gear VR . The virtual gaming headset has yet to make big waves in the tech industry but there is certainly potential. Few exciting games have already been announced like the Temple Run VR Darknet , and Land's End .
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.
But you didn’t see anyone lining up to buy a Samsung, or anything other than an iPhone, in those days.Things started to change with the first “Next Big Thing” spot. Just like Apple poked fun at Microsoft with its “I’m a Mac” campaign in the 2000s, Samsung’s goal was to tap into the same strategy — a little guy taking swings at the dominant player in the industry — and for a while it worked.
This week the folks at Samsung are preparing for release of the Galaxy S6 with a new teaser video. This is "The Next Galaxy", as they've said the past several years, the next big thing to come from Samsung in smartphone form. This device appears to be very flat and without edge-faring displays.
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.
We are undoubtedly months away from anything resembling official comments on the Samsung Galaxy S6. The earliest we are expecting to possibly see the device in any official capacity is at MWC next year. Ahead of any official unveil all we can do is keep an eye out for leaks and rumors to get an idea what the S6 might be like. The specifications of the device have reportedly leaked via AnTuTu.
