Unannounced Samsung Galaxy Tab E shows up in Taiwan

In Q1 of 2015, Samsung started copyrighting Galaxy Tab letters like crazy – that included copyrights for Galaxy Tab A, Tab J, and Tab E. Lo and behold, we are getting noises from over in Taiwan of a previously unannounced tablet which appeared in a catalogue under the name Samsung Galaxy Tab E.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active set to launch with AT&T

For the third straight year, US mobile carrier AT&T will be the exclusive retailer of the outdoors-y rugged version of Samsung’s flagship – and this year it is the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active. Timing it generally for a summer launch – when people usually go outdoors for camping trips and beach vacations – Samsung is giving us a not-so-heavily-armored version this year, but with all the usual resistances still embedded.

Club Samsung to cease existing by July 10

While the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge have been making waves (at least marketing wise) in the market, there are still some things that Samsung may have been doing wrong. One of those is in creating "exlusive software" that haven't really picked up and have eventually closed shop. The latest failed experiment is Club Samsung, launched almost two years ago in India, and starting July 10 this year, it will no longer exist in the digital sphere.

Samsung filed patent for ejectable pen for a new Galaxy Note

While Samsung's Galaxy Note and its S-Pen is unlike no other phablet (or smartphone) in the market right now, there's always room for improvement. One of the things that users have been asking for is an easier way to handle the S-Pen, especially for times when all you can use temporarily is one hand. Well, it looks like Samsung us listening to you as a document in the US Patent and Trademark Office reveals the OEM's plans for an ejectable pen in their New Note.

Samsung Belgium turns chargers into chairs, hammocks in park

What do you with wired chargers when you don't need them anymore? Most of us would just think of throwing them away or giving them to people whose devices are still dependent on that. But Samsung Belgium decided to make something that would not just be of "public service" but also would get people wondering about their new flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge. So they partnered with a local "creative recycling agency" in order to create usable art displays.

Samsung compares Galaxy S6 edge with iPhone 6

Only in the world of Samsung is "6 > 6". No, it's not because people in the marketing department suddenly became bad at math but a new ad campaign from the OEM shows the Galaxy S6 edge being compared to another smartphone that also has the number 6. It is not surprising anymore that the target of their ridicule is once again their arch rival Apple, and this time around, it's their iPhone 6 that bears the brunt of the attack.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge Android 5.1.1 preview

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge getting the Android 5.1.1 update is highly anticipated. Yesterday, we showed the two premium phones will get the Guest mode, RAW support, and probably the ability to set lower ISO levels even up to 50. We're not sure about the changes on shutter speed but we could add that to the list of our expectations. Samsung is believed to be releasing the software update this June but some geeks have been lucky with the early builds of Android 5.1.1 on the S6 and S6 edge.

Samsung Pay to debut in September instead of July

Samsung has confirmed that their supposed launch of mobile payment gateway Samsung Pay this July will be moved to September instead. It will now probably be part of the next high-end device that the Korean OEM will release, which means it will be the Galaxy Note 5, if they stick to the schedule this time. This is bad news for the company as it will be a few months where they will lose ground against other more aggressive mobile payment systems.

Samsung removes leaked Galaxy Active S6 specs on their website

It's either someone may have pushed the wrong button, or they wanted to tease us and get people talking about the soon-to-be launched new smartphone. But either way, for a brief moment, we were treated to the actual specs (or so we believe) of the Samsung Galaxy Active S6. And even though they took it down immediately, we all know that nothing ever disappears from the Internet. Most people who were aware of the "leak" were able to catch the AT&T branded smartphone and its specs.
