The Galaxy Note 4 may come with a very cool accessory you won’t see on the iPhone 6

You may not really need an Ultrasonic Cover to get around while using your smartphone, but Samsung is developing one for the Galaxy Note 4 nonetheless, SamMobile has learned. In case you’ve never heard of an Ultrasonic Cover before, it’s designed to help people with vision disabilities and can detect objects nearby thanks to an embedded ultrasonic sensor that provides feedback to the user. Galaxy Note 4 owners will be able to set three levels of range for the ultrasonic beam, including short, middle and long. More →

Galaxy Note 4 Release Date

Huge launches from Samsung, Sony, Microsoft and more are coming in three weeks

Huge launches from Samsung, Sony, Microsoft and more are coming in three weeks

This fall is shaping up to be an action-packed one for smartphone fans. While every unannounced handset we know about so far will likely be an iterative update as opposed to an innovative release — this is, after all, a boring year for smartphone lovers — there will still be plenty of solid new options for shoppers heading into the holidays.

As is the case each year, Apple’s upcoming new iPhone is easily the most hotly anticipated of the bunch. According to dozens of reports, the iPhone 6 will finally feature a significantly larger display alongside upgraded internals.

Beyond Apple’s new iPhone, however, there is plenty more in store — and it looks like the best and brightest of the bunch will all be unveiled in just a few short weeks. More →

This one quote explains why Samsung is feeling very nervous

Samsung is still in very good shape, especially when compared with rival Android vendors, but that doesn’t mean the company has no reason to be feeling nervous right now. The biggest thing that Samsung has to fear right now isn’t Apple but a host of up-and-coming Android vendors that are cranking out dirt-cheap phones with remarkably strong specifications. More →

Samsung comes up with a brilliant new way to troll iPhone fans

Even though Samsung’s smartphone profits have taken a hit this year, the company is still No. 1 in finding clever ways to troll iPhone fans. Samsung has started aggressively expanding its “wall huggers” marketing campaign that bashes the iPhone’s battery life and has now set up posters at airport power outlets letting iPhone fans know that they wouldn’t have to spend so much time huddled up near a power supply if they’d just bought a Galaxy S5.

Samsung teases the Galaxy Note 4 in touching new promo

You don’t have to understand Chinese to get the point of Samsung’s newest Galaxy Note promo. In a new video posted on Samsung’s Chinese media page, Samsung shows how the Galaxy Note can help bring families closer together and then at the end of the video tells people to sign up to get more information about the upcoming Galaxy Note 4. The video itself is pretty simple: Two parents get into a fight, their son uses the Galaxy Note 3’s stylus to add cute drawings to an old picture of the father proposing to the mother, he sends it to them and, voila, they forgive each other.  More →

Will Samsung’s next massive Galaxy phone be too big even for phablet fans?

Samsung’s Galaxy Note series wasn’t the first line of phablets, but it clearly played the biggest role in popularizing the new smartphone segment that has taken the world by storm. Phones that would have been considered phablets just last year are now the standard for flagship smartphones, and even Apple is getting in on the action next month when it debuts what is expected to be the first of two new iPhones with larger displays.

But Samsung’s next supersized Galaxy phone might be too big even for phablet fans to carry around. More →
