Device manufacturer Alcatel made the news at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona back in March that it was teaming up with software developer Cyanogen for the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 2+ phablet.

Upcoming Galaxy A8 receives TENAA certification

A few days after some images of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A8 were leaked, now we have Chinese telecoms governing body TENAA posting on their site that the phablet has passed their certification. It doesn't actually call the device by the official name but instead uses the model number SM-A8000, but we all know which smartphone it refers to. The image on the site also looks similar to the ones that were leaked last week, giving even more credence that the images have some sort of legitimacy.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 to reportedly have USB Type-C port

With feedback on their new flagships, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge at a high, there is pressure now on Samsung to deliver an even better phablet soon. People are eagerly awaiting the Galaxy Note 5 that will reportedly be unveiled at the IFA 2015 in Berlin this September, but as early as now there rumors and speculation flying around. One of the strongest is that the new Note will carry a USB Type-C port instead of the usual microUSB 2.0 port.

Samsung will not release the Galaxy Note 5 this July

Samsung President Shin Jong-Kyun confirmed that there will be no June or July announcement of the Galaxy Note 5, although there is still no definite date as to when that will actually happen.

We’re possibly looking at early details to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and a possible successor to the Galaxy Note Edge mysteriously coded as “Project Zen” at the moment.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge starts receiving Lollipop update

As they say (whoever they are), good things come to those who wait. For the owners of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the wait for the Android 5.0 Lollipop has been fraught with anxiety (are we really going to get an update?), impatience (why aren't we getting it yet?), and despair (we're never going to get it are we?). But finally, the wait is over as the official announcement is here. Well, at least for those who are on T-Mobile, that is.
