Galaxy Tab S 2 9.7 benchmarks confirm rumored specs

One of the only things we like more than leaked details of a new tablet or smartphone around here are leaked details that include benchmark confirmed specs. Benchmarks for the Galaxy Tab S 2 9.7 have hit the web from GFXBench. More important than the benchmarks themselves are the specs the benchmark app gleaned from the tablet.

Samsung Galaxy S3 gets Lollipop with Paranoid Android ROM

This is a testament to how well Samsung built the Galaxy S3, that it is still alive and kicking – and custom Lollipop ROMs are still being built for it today. We have to remember that the Samsung Galaxy S3 was once king of the smartphone world, and a lot of units are still being used even to this day. With this Paranoid Android build, the Galaxy S3 can start experiencing some Lollipop goodness – with a few bugs here and there.

Samsung’s floating ToolBox now out for all Android devices

When describing Samsung’s proprietary apps, we could most likely use the term “hit or miss”. There are some Samsung apps (and features) that just defy logic. And then there are some that are so useful you begin to think how you’ll survive without it. The floating toolbox app on the Samsung Galaxy S5 was an app that tended to be on the latter – it was useful enough that you immediately notice that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 doesn’t have it (what’s up with that Samsung?). So enter this new app.

T-Mobile releases Galaxy S6 teaser, boasts of its “Six Appeal”

We've suspected for some time now that the newest smartphone that Samsung will be officially announcing in a few days time will probably be the Galaxy S6. Although we haven't exactly gotten a "yes, that's what the name will be" from the Korean OEM, the newest teaser image that has come out sports the tagline "Six Appeal". This is an almost confirmation that we will be having the sixth edition of their flagship, and as the launch is almost upon us, the teasers keep getting less cryptic, and more like the real thing.

New Next Galaxy teaser hints at borderless, metal design

As the day of the official unveiling of the Samsung "Next Galaxy" grows nearer, we can expect that its teasers become less of a tease and more of actual but unconfirmed details about the upcoming new flagship device. The latest one is the longest video yet and may have just unofficially confirmed the rumors that the Galaxy S6 (still an unconfirmed name, we're just assuming) would have a metallic body and dual-curved display.

Samsung acquires LoopPay, to rival Google Wallet and Apple Pay

September last year, Samsung was reportedly looking at a payment process through smartwatches. Nothing has materialized yet but the closest the South Korean giant introduced was the PayPal fingerprint secured payments coming to the Galaxy S5. Looks like Samsung is finally stepping up, hoping to rival Apple Pay and Google Wallet, with the announcement that it has acquired LoopPay. We heard of this rumor a few weeks ago and as it turns out, the story is true and LoopPay is joining Samsung's mobile branch.
