Samsung’s new flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy S6, is rumored to be coming out from under its covers at the Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona roughly a month from now.

Android 4.4.4 update for Galaxy S5 released by AT&T

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. It's about time AT&T Galaxy S5 owners get the kind of service too.

Qualcomm enlists OEM support for Snapdragon 810

The growth of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 chip has not at all been smooth sailing – the run up of the new SoC has been plagued with performance and overheating issues.

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.

Of course, the Android 5.0 update was officially released for the Galaxy S4 but only made available in a few countries. Even the Google Play Edition of the smartphone got a quick update.
