Android L could be coming to Galaxy S5, Note 4 as early as November

In the wake of iOS 8, the operating system that will power the soon-to-be-shipped iPhone 6, coverage of Android L has slowed to a crawl. Android L debuted over the summer to an overwhelmingly positive response, but as Google has been very deliberate about actually bringing the new OS to Android phones, many Android users have simply moved on with their lives. Thankfully, they might not have to wait much longer. More →

Finally: Galaxy Note 4 launches October 17th, preorders start tomorrow

Samsung managed to beat Apple to the punch by unveiling its flagship phablet for 2014 before Apple made its new iPhone 6 Plus official, but unfortunately announcing a phone and launching a phone are two very different things. Android fans know exactly what they have to look forward to when the Galaxy Note 4 finally hits store shelves, but they won’t be able to get one in their hands until nearly a month from now; Samsung announced on Thursday that it will begin taking preorders for the new Galaxy Note 4 on Friday, September 19th — which also just happens to be iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus launch day — ahead of an October 17th release.

Everything you could possibly want to know about the Galaxy Note 4

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 was the most hotly anticipated phablet of the year until Apple came along last week and unveiled its first entry into the supersized smartphone market. Now, the iPhone 6 Plus has stolen the limelight and since it launches this Friday, it might even steal some sales away from Samsung’s next-generation phablet as well; according to Samsung, the Galaxy Note 4 won’t launch until sometime next month.

The upcoming new Galaxy Note 4 might not be generating quite as much buzz as Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus anymore, but there’s no question that it’s still one of the few phones worth getting excited about this holiday season. For those of you still interested in the device, Samsung has released a new graphic that will tell you everything you need to know about its next-generation flagship phablet. More →

iPhone 6 Plus vs. Galaxy S5: A detailed comparison

iPhone 6 Plus vs. Galaxy S5: A detailed comparison

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 4 is the company’s flagship phablet for 2014, but we still don’t have firm launch details for the upcoming new device. So, when Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus hits store shelves this Friday, the Galaxy S5 will be Samsung’s first line of defence against Apple’s debut phablet.

Now, the Galaxy S5 isn’t a “phablet” per se, at least not compared to other Samsung devices. At the same time, the device actually stacks up more closely to the larger of Apple’s two new iPhones, as opposed to the 4.7-inch iPhone 6.

So, how exactly to these two supersized smartphones compare? More →

Samsung announces release timing for Galaxy Note 4

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 is the most hotly anticipated phablet of 2014… or at least, it was back when Samsung unveiled the new handset in early September. Now, Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus is official and according to Apple, it already represents half of the new dynamic duo that has become Apple’s fastest-selling iPhones of all time. To make matters worse, the new iPhone 6 Plus hits store shelves this coming Friday, September 19th, and while Samsung still hasn’t announced a firm release date for the Note 4, it did confirm launch timing this past weekend that will come later than most fans were hoping.

Samsung doesn’t want regulators to see the Galaxy Note 4 as a medical device

Samsung may have an unexpected Galaxy Note 4 launch problem on its hands, as authorities in certain markets may look at the recently announced smartphone as a medical device, thanks to the multiple built-in sensors that allow users to measure certain health-related parameters. ZDNet Korea says the Korean Ministry of Food and Drug Safety revealed that Samsung requested the Galaxy Note 4 not to be treated as a medical device, in order to avoid health regulations that could cause launch delays.

The unexpected winner from the Apple Watch unveiling: Samsung

You might think that after launching six smartwatches over the last year to very little fanfare, Samsung would be devastated by the positive reaction to the Apple Watch. Sure, Apple’s device has its detractors, but knowing Apple fans, there’s a high probability that the Apple Watch will make waves when it launches in early 2015. But even if Apple’s smartwatch does fly off store shelves, analysts say that Samsung will take it in stride. More →

Samsung Gear VR Price

Samsung reportedly revealed the price of its Gear VR headset

Samsung reportedly revealed the price of its Gear VR headset

The Gear VR is a fascinating proposition. Partnering with Oculus, Samsung has built its very own virtual reality headset, but there’s a catch — you have to own a Galaxy Note 4 to use it. We were able to get some hands-on time with it last week before IFA 2014 kicked off and we were impressed with just how close the experience was to that of the actual dedicated VR headset that is the Oculus Rift, but we still had questions. Chief among them: how much will the Gear VR cost? More →

Meet the shock-resistant Galaxy Tab Active, a tablet you won’t be afraid to drop

If there was one device everyone was waiting to see at this year’s IFA trade show in Berlin, it was the Galaxy Note 4. Poised to take on the iPhone 6 later this month, the Galaxy Note 4 is clearly Samsung’s priority for the immediate future, but that doesn’t mean the endless iteration on previous hardware releases is going to slow down any time soon.

Nvidia Vs. Samsung Patent Lawsuit

You’ll never guess who’s getting sued for patent infringement again

You’ll never guess who’s getting sued for patent infringement again

Actually, that’s not true — as you can probably guess, it’s Samsung that’s getting hit with yet another intellectual property suit from yet another different company. Chipmaker Nvidia announced on Thursday that it’s launching a patent infringement lawsuit against both Samsung and Qualcomm for allegedly infringing on its patents related to mobile graphics processors. Nvidia says that this is the first patent lawsuit in the company’s history of more than two decades, and we’re sure that Samsung is honored to be part of this important milestone. More →
