We have already talked about the Samsung Galaxy A5 smartphone a few times. Some images and details leaked of the device last month. This week some new renders of the Galaxy A5 smartphone have leaked, and the renders appear to be official.
Another week, another Galaxy device is introduced. Wait, or should I say another Galaxy Prime? How about another Galaxy Core? Don't be confused but Samsung has just shown off the Galaxy Core Prime phone. This won’t be another impressive camera phone as the selfie-focused Galaxy Grand Prime as it only has 5MP rear and 2MP front-facing cameras. Making this a winner though is its LTE connectivity.
We’ve been given the idea that Korean gadget giant Samsung is at least serious about dispelling the “myth” that it can’t make beautiful metal-bound phones. The Samsung Galaxy Alpha was the first in what now seems to be a whole line of phones with that premium metallic feel to it. The Samsung Galaxy A5 was the most recent one leaked, and another aluminum unibody phone now follows with the Samsung Galaxy A3.
South Korean tech giant Samsung reportedly owes Microsoft some money. Samsung is believed to owe the Redmond company a total of $6.9 million in interest. The amount seems small considering Samsung already paid $1 billion last year. However, Microsoft went ahead and sued Samsung again for the unpaid interest.
Not too long ago, Samsung made a decision that the international version of the Samsung Galaxy SIII (I9300) – one of its most popular phones ever – is not going to get an official TouchWiz Android 4.4 KitKat update. Cue the sound of millions of hearts of Galaxy SIII owners breaking, as most of them were really still hoping against hope that it would happen. Now the Galaxy SIII is given a lifeline through community development by “arter97”, an XDA Senior Member, with a port from a Korean SIII variant that had an official KitKat update.
The Samsung Galaxy S5 Active has been exclusive to the US market since May but it's only now the smartphone is coming to Europe. It was an AT&T exclusive at first but it reached other network carriers and Canada as well. The rugged version of the Galaxy S5 comes to Europe with the same specs and design.
Android L should be, if the rumors pan out, just a month away, but of course it will be coming much later to OEMs and their flagships. The folks at SamMobile, however, were able to get a hold of an alpha build for the Galaxy S5 and took it out for a test, and the results are both impressive and a tad disappointing.
Lots of talk about bending smartphones has been going around after some iPhone 6 Plus devices turned up bent after being carried in pockets. Apple's response was to say only a few devices have actually bent, but the negative press affected the image of the device and led to a number of other smartphone makers feeling like they need to prove their devices won’t bend.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is coming. After being released in South Korea last Friday, September 26, the new phablet will soon be launched in the United States and other parts of the globe. Samsung Mobile recently teased us with an invitation to an ‘S Carpet’ launch event.
Virtual keyboard Fleksy has announced that they are coming to a couple more app stores as they continue to expand their presence in the Android Community. Now you can get the app through Amazon and Samsung's own appstores. They've also added a few new languages and brought a major update to its Android Wear app to celebrate a milestone for downloads for the wearables.
