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.
The metal clad members of Samsung 's family is slowly, very slowly, making their way to markets. Samsung has just officially launched the Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5 in Taiwan, giving buyers there a peek at the manufacturer's slight adventure away from plastic. Of course, no sign yet of the larger Galaxy A7.
Boost Mobile on Monday began offering its latest Android smartphone, the $130 Samsung Galaxy Prevail LTE.

The Samsung Galaxy Grand Max carries 5.
Just because it's holiday season doesn't mean that the mobile world is at a complete standstill. Though many indeed have set their eyes on CES 2015, which is just a few weeks away, some still managed to sneak in a few surprises before the year is over. And, of course, the rumor mill is starting to heat up with stuff to expect early next year.
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.
Courtesy of the Samsung -specific Sam Mobile website, we are getting our first look at a very new Samsung Galaxy Grand Max – a phablet that will be launched in Korea, with no news yet if the gadget maker is bringing the said device to the international market. The Galaxy Grand Max – code numbered the SM-G720N0 – will have a 5.2-inch HD display (720p), powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1.
One of the top phone makers of unlocked phones in the US, BLU Products, recently announced a slew of new 4G LTE-enabled smartphones. The company continues to deliver affordable smartphones in the market by bringing these devices to mobile carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, Tracfone, Simple Mobile, and Metro PCS under their high speed 4G LTE service plans.
We have been talking about the Samsung Galaxy A7 for quite a bit now, even as the new super-slim metallic smartphone has already been approved by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center – which probably means it’s launching in China soon. The US FCC has also approved the same model, but curiously, only a 3G model of the phone passed FCC’s tests.
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.
The HTC One M8 was a direct descendant of the HTC One M7 . Before that, there was the HTC One S and the HTC One X . Before that, there was a whole mess of phones released by the manufacturer with a lot less cohesive a plan than HTC is working with today. Today we've got codename "HTC Hima" to look forward to.
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.
This year's CES 2015 is getting crowded than ever. One of the companies super busy showing off new goods is Alcatel. It's actually a surprise that the brand has a lot of new things to offer but that means more options for the Android lovers who are demanding for more affordable mid-range smartphones.
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.
