Early Samsung Galaxy Note 5, ‘Project Zen’ details emerge

Now that everybody’s quite happy with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge (even Samsung is quite happy with themselves for the current flagship’s sales), we can start moving on to what Samsung might have in store for us toward the end of the year. 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.

Qualcomm exec (finally) denies rumors of defective Snapdragon 810

It took them a few months to finally address the rumors, but Qualcomm is vehement in their denial that there's anything wrong with their Snapdragon 810 chip, which caused Samsung to use their own processor in their latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Despite other OEMs still opting to use the aforementioned chip, the damage to the reputation of the chipmaker has already been done, and it probably didn't help that they stayed mum about it and are now just talking months later.

Samsung used Diamond Pixels display matrix on S6 edge’s curved display

No doubt the Samsung Galaxy S6's display is crisp and clear. Thanks to the Super AMOLED display used. But for the Galaxy S6 edge, some people are left wondering if the curved edge still features the Diamond Pixels matrix arrangement of Samsung. It's the technology that the South Korean giant uses to make sure resolution is higher than usual. It's the PenTile matrix that Samsung has been using to achieve super clear display.

Avengers-themed cases free for Galaxy Note 4 purchase (US only)

Not surprisingly, the second Avengers movie topped box-office charts everywhere. And you cannot escape the barrage of Avengers-related articles, talk show guestings, interviews, even musical numbers. Now if you're a huge fan of the MCU (that's Marvel Cinematic Universe for the uninitiated), then you want to get your hands on any related merchandise. Samsung is banking on this partnership, as US residents will get Avengers-themed cases (yes, plural) for every purchase of a new Galaxy Note 4 (until supplies last though).

There might be a “gold shortage” for Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge

In an "unexpected" twist (well, at least according to Samsung) to the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge story, Samsung says that the demand for the gold variants of their new flagships is on a high and is almost at par with the original colors of white and black. This means that they are "intensifying" the production of these smartphones, but at the rate it's going, particularly in Europe, they might have a "gold shortage" eventually.

Difference between Sony, Samsung camera sensors in Galaxy S6 shown

There was a rumor going around that Samsung was not using Sony’s IMX240 camera sensor/module exclusively on its new flagship smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S6. That rumor has been proven true – whether it was caused by a shortage of Sony’s sensors we don’t really know – but some enterprising reporters have checked and found out that their Galaxy S6 has Samsung’s own ISOCELL camera sensor. Now the big question is – is there a difference?

Camera enhancements coming soon for Galaxy S6 through Android update

The Android 5.1.1 update still hasn't arrived for devices (except for Nexus devices that have received a "factory image"), but it looks like owners of the brand new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge have something good to look forward to. While the cameras of the said flagship devices are already considered the best in the market, there is still some room for improvement. And it seems like the mini-update to the Android Lollipop will bring a few more enhancements to the cameras.

Samsung Galaxy S6 ‘Iron Man’ version to come out soon

Some are already touting the Samsung Galaxy S6 as the “best phone of 2015”, and there’s good reason behind that. Now it seems like Samsung is confident enough in its flagship device to play around with the marketing of the Samsung Galaxy S6. As soon as this month – or as soon as Samsung ties down the details of the deal with Marvel – an “Iron Man” version of the Galaxy S6 will be coming out.
