You didn't expect Ma Bell to open its first LTE markets without tossing in a few 4G friendly toys, did you? Of course not, we told you as much last week -- but today things get official: The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and HTC Vivid (formerly known as the Holiday) are ready to take Ma Bell's new LTE nodes for a spin.
Samsung has rolled out a new Galaxy smartphone that isn’t aimed at bringing the best specifications out there to the masses. This device is aimed at the entry-level buyer who is shopping for a 64-bit Android device on a budget. The smartphone is called the Galaxy Win 2. Samsung doesn't cram all the latest features into the budget device, but the smartphone is LTE capable.
Boost Mobile on Monday began offering its latest Android smartphone, the $130 Samsung Galaxy Prevail LTE. Powered by Android 4.4 KitKat, the handset features a 4.5-inch display, 5-megapixel rear camera, and 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Under the hood you’ll find 8GB storage, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, and a 2000mAh battery.
After months of rumors, leaks, sightings, and early previews, the Samsung Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 are now official. The two mid-range Android phones have earlier passed by TENAA and some close up images were shown off a few days ago. We knew that the new Galaxy phones are arriving very soon and Samsung China has just listed the two on its website.
Samsung has now updated its Galaxy Grand lineup, starting with the Galaxy Grand Max which has been officially launched in India. The South Korean manufacturer has also announced upcoming phones for the Asian market at a forum in Thailand yesterday – the Galaxy Grand Prime 4G, the Galaxy Core Prime 4G, and the Galaxy J1 4G. The Samsung Galaxy Grand Max carries 5.
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.
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.
If you're the type of person who enjoys using smartphones but wants something simple and not complicated at all, something like Samsung's Galaxy Core Prime may be the best phone for you. It will soon be available for Verizon subscribers (and we mean soon, like later this week). It is part of Samsung's new wave of smartphones that have mid-level specs and affordable prices. The 4.
While most Android fans are clamoring to get a taste of Android 5.0 Lollipop on their phones or tablets, there are still people who would be content to simply have new Android KitKat phones. Kyocera didn't even have to wait for next week to show off the new Kyocera DuraScout E6782 at the Mobile World Congress .
And so the Mobile World Congress 2015 comes to a close and now we're left to pick up the pieces of a whirlwind week. We've been bombarded by a lot of annoucements, new and old products, and promises, and now it's time to weed out the winners from the not so winners. Because everyone's a winner, right? But there are really quite a few that really piqued our interest and earned our applause.
Someone, somewhere thought it was a good idea for HTC to makeits own hip hop music video. Whoever approved the project might be regretting that decision right now, but never mind -- at least we get a hilariously cringeworthy tune to stick on repeat for the rest of the day.
Just before 2014 ended, we mentioned that Samsung would be launching the Galaxy Grand Max in South Korea at the start of the new year. True enough, the company did unveil the new phablet in its native country. It wasn't even mentioned at this week's CES so we're not sure if it will have an international release.
MWC 2015 is coming, so LG is doing what it does best: announcing new devices even before the event takes place. The Korean manufacturer may not have an LG G4 prepared next week, but it will try to make us forget about that by distracting us with other devices.
Samsung's pre-announcement clues are sometimescryptic at best, but it's not being especially subtle this time around. Hours afterTinhtefirst revealed thatsomething was up, Samsung hasposteda "what's next" teaser for a March 1st Galaxy Unpacked event in Barcelona whose centerpiece is the shadowy profile of a curvy-looking device.
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.
Best Buy is probably the best place to get the best deals of the best gadgets today. Okay, that may be an exaggeration of it becoming the best but the electronics retail giant is holding an exciting promo for fans of Samsung . Best Buy is having a Samsung 4-Day Sale which started yesterday March 25 and will end on Saturday, March 28.
As we count down the days to MWC 2015 , it's natural to see companies kick their marketing campaigns into high gear, sometimes with absurd results. Take for example HTC 's latest "teaser", basically a fill in the blanks game with nothing much in terms of clues. Of course, that's not going to stop anyone from speculating, or wishing, what it's all about.
One of the most frustrating things after an OEM has announced a brand new flagship or product is the lack of information as to its pricing and when it will be available. That's why we have to "rely" on rumors and leaks to at least give us an estimate of what we should be saving up for and how much time we have to gather our resources.
This week the folks at Motorola have revealed the Moto E 2015 in all its affordable-tier glory. This smartphone is being released in "more than 50 countries" all at once, including North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia, and it'll be released to the states through Motorola's webpage unlocked.
