Samsung France, Romanian e-tailer post Galaxy Note, S6 edge+ pre-order page

We are literally just a couple of days away from the official unveiling of the new Samsung smartphones/tablets, the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge Plus. But apparently, some online retailers may have pressed the “post” button too soon.

Samsung Galaxy S7 to run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor

After the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus are announced this week, the next major flagship phone we should be waiting for is the Galaxy S7. Samsung is scheduled to release it next year 2016 but as with previous Galaxy S models, we can expect numerous rumors, leaks, and speculations to come out.

Android continues to grow, Samsung and LG account for 78% of all sales

Apple's iOS may be the most popular in all "Big Five" markets in Europe for the second quarter but Android OS still shows relevant growth in the region. The largest markets in Europe that include Spain, France, Italy, Great Britain, and Germany showed that iOS is No. 1 contrary to numbers going down in the United States.

AT&T starts to rollout security patch against Stagefright malware

People’s complaints that Google is so slow in sending out security patches to counteract the Stagefright malware that is giving us all a fright is about to come to an end, or so we hope.
