Samsung Galaxy Note 5 may come with highest pixel density ever

It will still be months until we hear whether or not there will be a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 this year (or whether there will actually be a gadget with that name) and yet the rumor mill has already started working. Previous presentations in the past few days may have confirmed that the OEM is coming up with a high pixel density device sometime this year, and now they're speculating that this might arrive with their upcoming phablet.

Samsung boasts of the sum of the parts of the Galaxy S6 edge

While the world (okay, just the gadget-crazy ones probably) awaits the actual day when Samsung's Galaxy S6 edge will finally hit the market, the OEM wants to tell us how carefully and intricately made their newest gadget is. In a video and blog post, they share the "in-boxing" story behind this groundbreaking new smartphone, and how everything is fitted within the 142.1 x 70.1 x 7.0mm, 132g body of the Galaxy S6 edge.

Samsung predicts demand for S6 Edge to exceed availability

Sales haven't been what Samsung wanted them to be over the last few quarters. With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Samsung is looking to a significant improvement in sales volume. In fact, Samsung is predicting record shipments and is predicting the largest profits in the January-March quarter than it has seen in the last three quarters.

Samsung drop tests Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge in a new video

Samsung doesn't want to be defeated so it challenged SquareTrade to do another stress test of the Galaxy S6 edge targeting both the back and front sides. It released an official statement and its own Three-Point Bend Test to show the new flagship phone is durable. After all the numerous stress tests we've seen of the Galaxy S6 edge being dropped on concrete floor, submerged on water, another round of drop test, that extreme bend test , and the speed test, we learned that the phone can be a smart choice as long as you use a protective case and don't leave it underwater for more than 20 minutes.

Android 5.0 Lollipop for AT&T Galaxy S5 now ready

Just the other day, AT&T released Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Samsung Galaxy S4. Soon after, it's the Galaxy S5's turn to receive the same update. This is specifically for the Galaxy S5 (SM-G900A) which is now available for download via Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) over WiFi. This one is anticipated since other S5's from different carriers in different countries have already experienced the Android Lollipop goodness.

T-Mobile prepping Android 5.0 update for Galaxy Note 4

Owners of Samsung Galaxy S4 Note were teased about the Android 5.0 Lollipop coming to their units before 2014 ended. That was the early build of Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4 where the TouchWiz UI and Material Design blended well in some areas. We even saw a demo video of the mobile OS running on a Note 4 from SamMobile. We were  also told that Samsung would be updating the phone to Android 5.0.1, skipping Android 5.0, but as usual, everything else would depend on the carrier.

AT&T to carry Samsung Galaxy S6 Active

The arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active is impending and we're just waiting for the official announcement from the South Korean tech giant. We know Galaxy S6's rugged sibling is for real since it has been tipped and a UA Profile was already spotted last month. AT&T is expected to offer the S6 Active according to that particular document and looks like it's true since an AT&T inventory list was also recently spotted showing the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active name.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Fire Test: Sacrifice for Science

Drop test. Front, back, and side drop tests. Speed test? Too easy. A water test? Phone can survive that one. How about an extreme bend test? Nerve-wracking. Curious geeks will never be done trying out their phones to know if the likes of Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge. YouTube will be filled with people who are bored who would like to do several and extreme durability tests. The latest of which is this stress test that includes a FIRE TEST.

Pixel OFF app saves power on LED screens

LED and AMOLED screens are admired by screen junkies all over the word because they produce the deepest blacks in a mobile device display. This is because LED screens, including Samsung’s more preferred AMOLED screens, just basically turn off when they're assigned to draw the "black" color. That’s what the new app “Pixel OFF” tries to do, because theoretically, LED pixels not emitting light draws no electrical power.

AT&T releases Android 5.0 Lollipop for Samsung Galaxy S4

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. Even the Russians know their Galaxy S4 is getting a taste of Lollipop. This was after the official-looking Android Lollipop for the Galaxy S4 was leaked.
