Someone at Samsung and/or AT&T must be just giving this stuff away, and whoever you are, we thank you. After leaks of the official Android 4.0 ROM for both the Galaxy S II and the Galaxy S II Skyrocket, the same update for the plus-sized Galaxy Note has also appeared. You can download it now [...]
We all know that for all of Samsung ’s tech nous, the South Korean company can’t very well launch the most recent Lollipop firmware versions for all their top-of-the-line devices at the same time. This would be confusing as heck for them and so we understand (grudgingly) the delay. However, leaks like this – an official-ish Android 5.0.
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.
CyanogenMod is still – arguably – one of the best at applying the AOSP (Android Open Source Project) flavor of Android to after-market software and making them so fiiiiiine. And they haven’t stopped. Today, they officially released nightly builds of CM12 – that is, CyanogenMod 12, the Android 5.
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.
This is a testament to how well Samsung built the Galaxy S3, that it is still alive and kicking – and custom Lollipop ROMs are still being built for it today. We have to remember that the Samsung Galaxy S3 was once king of the smartphone world, and a lot of units are still being used even to this day.
MWC 2015 is happening next week which means there will be another surge of leaks, rumors, and early announcements from gadget manufacturers leading to opening day. One of the highly anticipated phones is the Galaxy S6 , Samsung's next Android flagship smartphone.
Last month we learned that T-Mobile is busy prepping up units for Android 5.0 Lollipop . The carrier even has a dedicated page for software updates to inform subscribers of the status.Phones under T-Mobile now eligible for the sweet Lollipop upgrade include the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), HTC One M8, and the Galaxy S5.
As we saw yesterday via IDC's numbers , Android is on a lot of smartphones, and many of those phones travel with their owners to work everyday. Google wants to put them to good use, and as such it has announced the official launch of Android for Work, which we previously heard about last summer.
A couple of weeks ago, Google started offering Free App of the Week . The point of this promo is to get more people to download apps directly from the Google Play Store instead of going to Amazon Appstore or the Samsung Galaxy Store. Unfortunately, it's not easy to locate the free app offer on the Play Store so we'll just share it with you.
We have seen several leaks in weeks past that talk about the coming Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone and the S6 with curved edges on the screen. So far, we have seen the specifications for the smartphone leaked via AnTuTu benchmarks . Just yesterday, a rumor surfaced claiming that the device would be called the Galaxy S Dual Edge That rumor was supposedly from an industry source that was in the know.
Rather thanpassing along every single rumor that comes across our plate we’ve opted to cover only those devices that we find most relevant. To that end, the “What We Know” column aims to highlight the flagship smartphone models that are looming on the horizon. What you’ll find below is a list of rumors, leaks, speculation, images, and other stuff that pertains to theSamsung Galaxy S6.
Now that we’re in February, we’ve got new Android distribution numbers. Typically not exciting fare, Google is finally telling us how many Android Lollipop devices there are in the world. After being announced and released in the Fall of 2014, Google has kept a tight lid on distribution numbers for their latest operating system. According to Google’s very-official numbers, 1.
Yesterday, we said Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S5 is finally getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop . Today, we've got information that the AT&T variant of the same smartphone is getting an update. That's good news but unfortunately, it's only Android 4.4.4. No Android Lollipop yet but at least the Android 4.4.4 KitKat for the Galaxy S5 brings VoLTE (Voice over LTE) to the device.
Taking a break from all the CES stuff, we bring you more leaks of what looks to be more pics of the all-metal unibody frame of the Samsung Galaxy S6. It was a couple of weeks back when we wrote about the purported metal frame of the Samsung Galaxy S6 being leaked to the author of a French tech website, and now the same author is back with more pics.
Two more days and the gates of Mobile World Congress will open in Barcelona. After the CES, this is perhaps the next highly anticipated tech event for the 1st quarter of each year. MWC 2015 officially starts on the 2nd of March but we all know a lot of companies will make announcements the day before. For one, there's Samsung finally unveiling the Galaxy S6 .
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.
T-Mobile is busier than ever especially these few days leading to the Mobile World Congress 2015 . Because new smartphones and tablets will be unveiled in Barcelona, it's only right that the mobile carrier release software updates to current mobile devices par of its lineup before they become overshadowed by the yet-to-be-announced units.
