Many fans were disappointed when the Galaxy Note 7 did not match up to the rumors of the smartphone sporting 6GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. One could say that disappointment turned to bewilderment when some of the devices started to explode and a worldwide recall had to be arranged by Samsung. While Samsung sorts the entire mess out, new rumors indicate that Xiaomi is all set to launch the Mi 5s with 6GB of RAM and the mythical Snapdragon 821 chipset with a clock speed of 2.4 GHz.
None of the other rumoured specs seem less than impressive either as it's supposed to be sporting 256GB of internal storage along with a pressure sensitive display. They will probably not upgrade the screen resolution to 1440p though and will instead possibly stick to the same 5.15-inch 1080p panel. Other specs include a 16-megapixel rear camera, a 4-megapixel front camera, fingerprint scanner, NFC, 2G, 3G, 4G, VoLTE and a 3,490mAh battery. Nothing is official though, so we would suggest waiting for a while before getting your hopes up too much.

Evan Blass from @evleaks has tweeted out a set of images depicting the upcoming Huawei Mate 9. These show both a flat screen version, as well as a dual curved screen variant of the smartphone. The Mate 9 will possibly be unveiled on November 3, at Munich and considering that the Note 7 is now permanently out of commission due to dangerous manufacturing defects, the Mate 9 could be the phablet that you may want to replace the Note 7 with.
Although the Mate 9 won't sport a stylus like the Samsung Galaxy Note series, it will sport impressive specifications nevertheless. Allegedly, the Mate 9 will be launched with a 5.9-inch display, a HiSilicon Kirin 960 SoC, 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The premium variant with the dual-edge curved display is codenamed Long Island and will probably come with a QHD panel, ready for Google Daydream VR. The only bad news is that some leakstars are claiming that the Long Island will be available exclusively in China. Let's hope that it's not the case and we get a chance to check out the curved phone in person as well. In any case, the flat screen Mate 9, codenamed Manhattan will be released globally.

Black Friday was a shopping extravaganza as usual, with customers spending billions of dollars on electronics alone. Even though Black Friday came and went, Cyber Monday is finally upon us with much of the same awesome deals, but from the comfort of your home and your laptop. Let's now take a look at some of the best deals on the S7 and S7 Edge that the online shops have for you today.
1. You will get a $250 gift card if you buy a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge on an AT&T plan from BestBuy. Just for good measure, they are also throwing in a Gear VR headset and content from the Occulus Store that's worth $50, without any extra charge.
2. BestBuy also has the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge from Verizon and Sprint, opting for which will entitle you to a $400 gift card from BestBuy, as well as the bundled Gear VR headset.
3. If you are the type of person who would prefer an unlocked version, then we have good news for you as well. BestBuy has the Galaxy S7 Edge (Gold and Titanium Silver) listed at $649.99, which is a whole $120 less than the usual price tag of $769.99.
4. Target will give a $250/$100 gift card and a free Gear VR headset to each customer that purchases a Galaxy S7/S7 Edge from them. The customers will also get an additional discount of 15% on their purchase while checking out from the site.
5. You can buy the unlocked Galaxy S7 international version from Amazon at $523.62.
These are the top deals on the two flagship devices this Cyber Monday and remember that they are only applicable as long as stocks last.
Even though it's a bit early to be throwing around comparisons as both the phones are far from being unveiled or even cited at a benchmarking app or two, here are a few things we can intelligently guess about them.
It would be particularly hard to recommend someone a Samsung smartphone after the embarrassing episode that Samsung just had with the Note 7. Nevertheless, we are pretty sure that the number one name in the smartphone business will bounce back with the S8. Having said so, the iPhone 8 will still win in this respect as they do not have any proven cases of multiple exploding phones yet.
It is always hard to predict just how powerful Apple's next chip is going to be and in spite of having seemingly less resources on pen and paper, the Apple iPhone 7 did blow the S7, S7 Edge and Note 7 out of the water in benchmarking tests like AnTuTu and Geekbench. Therefore, the iPhone 8 might just have an edge here over the S8.
This is a tough one as both the manufacturers usually endow their flagship smartphones with awesome cameras. However, the S7 did sport a slightly better rear camera this year when compared to the iPhone 7, so we will give this one to the S8.
The iPhone 7 is a beautiful device and many Android smartphones have been and continue to be "inspired" by the Apple iPhones. Samsung flagship grade smartphones on the other hand have recently been producing beautiful smartphones with curved displays. The preference will depend largely on the individual, so we will refrain from a judgement on this one.
Samsung had to kill the Note 7 after a second worldwide recall was initiated and that has cost the South Korean giant quite dearly. Apart from the billions of dollars that Samsung had to shell out in order to recall all the Note 7 smartphones and refund its customers, there is no telling how much this incident will hamper Samsung's business in the long run. According to Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Market analyst firm, Samsung may lose as much as 5 to 7 million customers to Apple's iPhone 7 in the remainder of this year alone.
About 12 million units of the Note 7 were ordered and since each and every one of those customers will now have to opt for another smartphone, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are lucrative alternatives for them. The iPhone 7 Plus in particular will appeal to most of the ex-Note 7 customers, due to its large display, dual rear camera setup and a price tag that's quite similar to the Note 7. A portion of the remaining customers will of course stay loyal to Samsung by choosing the Galaxy S7 Edge or some other Samsung device. Other contenders for the sales gap created by the untimely death of the Note 7 are mainly the Google Pixel XL and the LG V20. We are not entirely sure about the report, but only time will tell if the Note 7 disaster is enough to make so many people change loyalties.

It's no secret that the two biggest names in the smartphone business are preparing for what could be the most important year for both of them in recent history. Apple released the iPhone 7 to an overwhelming success, but unimpressed reviews from even some of its ardent fans. The Galaxy Note 7 on the other hand, exploded into (pardon the pun!) all sorts of problems even after being received extremely well by the critics on release. The phone itself had to be shut down permanently by Samsung for safety concerns. A lot depends on the success of the Galaxy S8 in 2017 for Samsung, and perhaps even more so with that of the Note 8 (or whatever Samsung decides to call it).
The 10th anniversary of the iPhone is coming up in 2017, and we are sure that Apple is going to make it particularly special with either the iPhone 7s or the iPhone 8 (or both). We will now take a look at the most prominent changes that we could be seeing in the upcoming flagships devices, as per leaks and rumors around the web.
AI assisted digital assistant
Both the Galaxy S8 and the Note 8 could sport "Bixby," an AI assisted digital assistant that is being developed by reportedly the same firm which helped in the development of Siri for the iPhone.
Most experts, including us, are quite convinced that both the S8 and the Note 8 will have iris scanners that made its debut with the Note 7 this year. Apple too, may embrace the technology as the company is currently in business with Xintec from Taiwan.
Full screen pressure sensitive display
A display with almost no bezel seems to be on the cards for the Galaxy S8, as well as the next iPhone. If you want to know what we are talking about exactly, take a look at the Mi Mix. Pressure sensitivity or Force Touch has been a part of the iPhones for over a year now, but Samsung too may embed similar pressure sensitive tech into its displays starting from 2017.
Foldable OLED display
Samsung may move to foldable displays in 2017, while Apple may shift to using OLED panels for their iPhones in 2017 in place of LCDs. Many have speculated that the rumoured 6.2-inch Galaxy S8 Plus will sport a foldable display to make it portable.
Reportedly, Qualcomm, Samsung and Apple will all move to the significantly more powerful, yet energy-efficient next generation 10nm processes to manufacture their SoC units in 2017.
Dual 20-megapixel camera sensors
Most reports are suggesting that the S8 and the Note 8 will feature dual 20-mp sensors at their back. Apple once again, already has done it with the iPhone 7 Plus.
"Safe" removable batteries
There is no denying that the Galaxy Note 7 disaster could have been somewhat controlled if only Samsung had opted for removable batteries. Let's just hope that Samsung recognizes that fact well enough to equip their upcoming smartphones with user-removable batteries.
There are plenty of other details floating about in the market regarding the upcoming superphones, but these are the most significant changes which the world is hoping to see from the two companies in their upcoming devices.

Samsung is all set to add a new member to its family of Galaxy A series and it would be known as Galaxy A9. This will be the flagship product of the mid-tier A series.
Till now the new phone has been seen in two benchmarks and there-by revealing its specs. Recently it was spotted in an Indian listing and now it has obtained the first certification.
Galaxy A9 now appeared on the Bluetooth SIG validating that it has been certified. After this certification we can expect the final approvals in the near future. It won't be actually surprising to see Galaxy A9 (Model number SM-A9000) become official by the end of this year.
According to the specs leaked previously, A9 will be featuring a 5.5"/6" 1080p touch screen, 32GB internal memory, 3GB RAM. Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 64-bit octa-core processor along with Adreno 510 GPU for graphics. Moreover Samsung's TouchWiz will also be available on top of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. The SoC will have support for Cat.7 LTE, which can propel top speed download of 300Mbps and uploads of maximum 100Mbps.It is expected that the phone will be made up of metal and the rear-facing snapper will be of 13MP.

The Galaxy S5 was unveiled in 2014 as their flagship device by Samsung and back then, it was a pioneer in terms of the innovations that it brought to the Samsung smartphone line-up. It was the first Samsung smartphone ever to sport a heartbeat sensor, a fingerprint sensor, as well as having dust and water resistance capabilities. Nonetheless, it is over two year old now and smartphones do have a tendency to age fast. If you have a S5, then you would be pleased to know that Samsung has not forgotten about it yet. The latest reports suggest that after rolling Android M as an OTA update in South Korea earlier, the Korean manufacturer has now started to roll out the same updates for the S5 in Trinidad and Tobago as well.
As far as we know, the latest updates are being released for the SM-G900M and earlier, they were upgrading the SM-G900L in South Korea with Android Marshmallow. Provided that you are in Trinidad and Tobago, go to Settings, About device and Check for updates to see if the update has arrived on your Galaxy S5 yet. Once the 1.47GB package does arrive and you complete the update, the Android version on your phone should change to 6.0.1 and the firmware version to G900MUBU1CPC3.
If you are neither a resident of South Korea or Trinidad and Tobago, you will have to wait longer for the update unfortunately. If it is any consolation, the update is coming to your Samsung Galaxy S5 for sure, albeit a little later.

The Top two flagships in the market is currently the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Apple iPhone 6s Plus with no doubt. Today, we gonna make a simple comparison between both devices with focusing on the main key features. So let's start...
Display Resolution and Density
Build Material (Back)
Build Material (Side)
Fast charging Support
Latest Samsung's flagship devices were quite successful in terms of sales and build quality, as the Korean Giant is finally switching from Plastic to Metal, just like HTC. Various reports on the Web claim that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 will be redesigned from scratch to keep the Korean OEM on top in terms of sales. Today, we also got its main Preliminary Specifications!
The Chinese portal cnmo.com suggests that the Samsung Galaxy S6 might have already been spotted in the AnTuTu benchmark. The numbers shown in the leaked screenshot show that the Samsung Galaxy S6 may contain a 5.5-inch display with QHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. And if the screenshot is correct, it appears that Samsung will make use of the 64-bit architecture.
The Galaxy S6 might ship with the 1.8 GHz octa-core Exynos 7420 CPU. It also could feature an ARM Mali-T760 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of storage. The S6 may have a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Samsung will annouce the device on Early 2015 and set for release later Q1,2015 if all goes well.
Here we go, the first rumored alleged photos of the Samsung Galaxy S6 is spreading around the internet. The Photos shows a device similar in the design to the Galaxy ALPHA with a metal frame and Glass front. The Galaxy S6 is set to be released during the End of Q1,2015 and we already got its leaked Specifications sheet.
The source of this photo is not reliable and its highly considered to be a Fake, but we showed you it because the S6 may end up looking very close ot the Galaxy Alpha. Like Every year, This is only the start of the rumors-wave until Samsung reveal the device on the CES early next year.
2015 is almost here, Samsung is preparing for its upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S6. However, this year Samsung will be releasing two new flagships Smartphones. Latest reports indicates that the Korean Manufacture is preparing to release a smaller version of the Galaxy Note Edge, It will be called "Samsung Galaxy S Edge". The Galaxy S Edge is reported to have the same design as the Galaxy S6 but with a curved-display.
Instead of releasing a Prime variant which is like releasing the same device twice but with higher Specs, Samsung decided to change its strategy to provide a newer/better option with a new technology, Flexible Displays. The Galaxy S Edge will pack the same Specs and Design as the original Galaxy S6 but with curved display on the side. Rumored Specs for the Galaxy S6 include QHD display, Exynos 7420/Snapdragon 810 chipset, and 16MP or 20MP camera.
Both Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S Edge is expected to be announced on Early 2015 and to be released on the markets by Late Q1,2015 with Lollipop Pre-installed.
CES 2015 Event is due to this week, Samsung has been working on its upcoming 2015 flagship device Galaxy S6 codenamed "Project Zero" for a while now, the Korean giant promised a completely new design with full metal unibody.
Latest Reports from Las Vegas (the place where CES will be held) suggests that Samsung will showcase the Galaxy S6 during its private event in the CES 2015. However, unfortunately, the devices will only be showcased to select partners, the report notes, which means that consumers will not be able to take a look at them. So, we may or may not get a sneak peak or a leaked photo, Stay Tuned!
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to feature a 5.5-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display, an Exynos 7420 chipset with octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory. In addition, the smartphone is also said to have a 20-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front snapper.
Samsung is preparing its upcoming 2015 flagship, Samsung Galaxy S6, that should be preview on the CES 2015 this week to some of its partners. Rumors and reports are already spreading about a Special Limited Edition of this flagship that packs a Curved display, to be called Galaxy S6 Edge.
According to an Asian Economies report, which cites industry insiders, the Galaxy S6 Edge will be limited to "10 million units Only", a figure which is hard to confirm at this point, but is definitely in line with earlier rumours that suggested the company is aiming to sell a total of around 45 million units of the flagship, including 10 million units of the Edge variant.
Specifications of the Galaxy S6 Edge is expected to be similar to the Galaxy S6 smartphone, which is said to feature a 5.5-inch QHD (1440×2560 pixels) display, an Exynos 7420 chipset with octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory. In addition, the device is also expected to have a 20-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front snapper.
The CES 2015 has passed and Samsung didn't show us the Galaxy S6. Business Insider reports confirmed that this future flagship will come in both Regular and Edge variants. The successor to the Galaxy S5 will mark yet another step in Samsung's gradual move to a more premium build, with confirmation yet to come whether that will mean a true unibody or aluminum accents. However, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge will be a limited Edition.
Hardware will most likely be region-dependent, but with the never-ending rumors of Qualcomm's problems with the Snapdragon 810, all versions may get the in-house Exynos 7420 chipset, paired with 3GB RAM. Previously speculated at 5.5 inches, it won't be surprising if the Galaxy S6 ends up closer to 5.2-5.3 inches, which makes sense.
Following much criticism, Samsung abandoned the all-plastic bodies with the Alpha lineup and the latest Galaxy Note 4, and the Galaxy series will follow suit. We will also be treated to a dual edge screen version, building on the Note Edge's hype. The speculated unibody of the regular Galaxy S6 will however result in the loss of the beloved replaceable battery, that's been a strong selling point of the lineup.
It looks like Samsung has finished working on it's upcoming flagship, the Galaxy S6. According to confirmed reports from Business Korea, Samsung Galaxy S6 has entered Trial production on Samsung's Vietnamese plant, the device will enter Mass production starting Next month.
In other hand, Samsung finally listened to the many of it users who are criticizing its Android overlay Interface "TouchWiz UX". Reports suggests that the Galaxy S6 will have a New TouchWiz with less customization to look very close to the Android's default UI, the Korean giant decided to focus more on core features and rethinking the inclusion of more obscure ones
Samsung will be revealing the Galaxy S6 on the MWC 2015 on early March. The flagship will be Available on two variants, Regular and Edge. The Galaxy S6 Edge will pack the same specs as the regular but with a curved screen.
A Leaked User Agent Profile confirms that Samsung;s upcoming flagship device, Samsung Galaxy S6 will feature a QHD (2K) display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. The Galaxy S6 will have a model number SM-G920A.
In the same time, the rest of the User Agent Profile also shows that the Galaxy S6 (SM-G920A) will pack a 64-bit processor. Software navigation buttons missing from the profile, it would appear that hardware buttons will return. None of this information is unexpected, and the profile merely confirms earlier leaks.
We expect to see a 5.5-inch display on the Galaxy S6 with a pixel density of 534ppi. Back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 16MP and 5MP respectively. For those of you impressed with the rear camera on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy S6 is expected to have the same IM240 camera sensor employed on the camera that adorns its back. 3GB of RAM will be on board and Android 5.0 will be pre-installed.
More rumors emerged about Samsung's upcoming flagship, Galaxy S6. Latest reports suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S6 will pack a 3GB or 4GB RAM depending on its hardware configuration, boosting the RAM was rumored long time ago, especially since Samsung announced that it will be using its latest 4GB LPDDR4 RAM chips in its 2015 products.
Beside having a Regular and Dual-Edge variants, but it also rumored to feature a Glass back panel... ditching the bandit plastic back. The Korean giant will move into a fancier choose of material "Glass". Having a glass panel in the front and back will make the device lighter and gorgeous to look at.
The company's decision is likely driven by a desire to differentiate the Galaxy lineup from the A-series with their metal frames and plastic backs. The source also confirms what we suspected would be a non-removable battery.
Finally, Samsung broke its silent about it's biggest announcement this year. An official Samsung's Senior Executive has been quoted in Korean media, confirming that the company's next flagship, Galaxy S6, will indeed be announced at the MWC 2015 in Barcelona on March,2nd.
The Korean giant will be releasing the Galaxy S6 in two variants, Regular and Edge. The MWC 2015 event will gather all the big names in the Android market and will see a lot of flagships revealing.
Stay tuned for our MWC 2015 full coverage on the Samsung event.
Another day, another leak... Today, an industry insiders from the Samsung Electro-Mechanics (SEM) subsidiary hint that the the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 flagship will pack a 20MP main camera sensor with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS).
Last year's poor financial results of SEM were caused by the predominant market distribution of low-end camera modules with small profit margins. What's interesting is that profits for this year are expected to be on the rise, thanks to the production of premium 16MP and 20MP OIS camera modules. We haven't seen Samsung make a 20MP stabilized camera yet, but who would be more likely to rock it, if not the upcoming flagship.
We all know that Samsung Galaxy S6 will be released this year (probably March-April). So far Samsung hasn't confirmed the launch of the SGS6, let alone that there's going to be a version of it with a curved edge to match the duality of the Note devices. This curved version will be named "Samsung Galaxy S Egde".
The source of the "S Edge" name is from a placeholder buried deep within the Vodafone.nl website, where Samsung Galaxy S Edge gets a mention.
Would Samsung drop the numbering from the name? Yes, it probably would. The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge did exactly that and there's the feeling that the curved-edged devices are much more experimental than the mainstream numbered device, more distinctive in their own right.
Stay Tuned for Samsung's MWC 2015 event on March!
We just got some Samsung Galaxy S6 Exclusive concept renders that might be very close to the real deal. The Galaxy S6 is the most anticipated flagship in 2015, these renders are the closest to what the rumors suggested.
The renders shows a device with a design very close in design to the Galaxy Alpha. Samsung Galaxy S6 (Codenamed Project Zero) is expected to feature radical new design, coupled with cutting edge hardware. A design language that combines what we've seen in the Samsung Galaxy Alpha and the Galaxy A family of smartphones shouldn't catch anyone by surprise. These products were the first to mark a departure from the heavy use of plastic for the Korean company.
Purported specs of Samsung Galaxy S6 include Exynos 7420 chipset with octa-core CPU, 5.2" QHD display, 3GB of RAM, and 20MP camera. The device is expected to launch during MWC in Barcelona.
What do you think about these Concepts ?
IT's OFFICIAL, Samsung is sending out press Invitations for its Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event on March,1st which is only very soon. Unpacked 2015 Invitation card (Photo above) Hints a curved design device which means that Samsung officially confirms the unveiling of the Galaxy S Edge besides the long-rumored Galaxy S6.
Samsung Galaxy S Edge
The Galaxy S Edge will be Samsung's 2nd curved screen smartphone after the Note Edge. This device will start a new "Edge" series that will bring us the S Edge, S Edge 2, S Edge 3 and so on, in the upcoming years...
This curved device will be the same as the Galaxy S6 in terms of specs and design but will be packing a flexible sAMOLED display instead. Sadly, it will be a limited edition and only few carriers and retailers around the world will get it.
Samsung Galaxy S6
The most anticipated flagship for 2015. The Galaxy S6 will feature a 5" QHD Super AMOLED display and draw power from the Exynos 7420 chipset with octa-core CPU and 4GB RAM. At the back, this flagship will feature a heart rate monitor and a 20MP camera.
So, Here's it is we got the Official date, Stay tuned for our full coverage for the Unpcack 2015 event.
First Leaked Photos that shows off Samsung's upcoming flagship Smartphones, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S Edge. The images, provided by sources at a South Korean electronics distributor, purportedly show five variants of the electronics giant's new flagship smartphone, including an Edge-style version.
While the Galaxy S6 isn't expected to be formally announced until the Samsung Unpacked 2015 event held on March 1st, the rumour mill has been running overtime on what the world's largest smartphone maker might be offering in the new handset to revive its sluggish mobile-phone business.
The fifth phone shows that the bezel which looks metallic and quite thick of the visible edged side, unlike the Galaxy Note Edge, is protruding outwards. This seems to indicate that the fork-looking silver line shown in Samsung's recently sent invitation was the hint for the particular wraparound design of the Edge.
The physical home button is still very much alive, it seems, while the glimpse of the fifth phone shows that the front of the S6 will resemble its predecessors the S5, S4, and S3.
Sadly, These pages lack any images or information about the devices themselves, but it goes on to confirm that the dual-sided curved edge screen variant of the Galaxy S6 will be named as the Galaxy S6 Edge. We believe that SM-G920X and SM-G925X might actually refer to possible European variants of the devices the SM-G920F and the SM-G925F.
Both these devices are expected to be officially unveiled on March,1st during Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked 2015 event in MWC 2015. The devices are expected to feature QHD Super AMOLED displays, 64-bit octa-core Exynos 7420 SoCs, 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM, 16-megapixel primary cameras with 4K video recording, 5-megapixel front-facing cameras, newer and lighter variant of TouchWiz based on Android 5.0 Lollipop, and LTE Cat. 10 connectivity.

We know almost everything about Samsung's upcoming flagship Galaxy S6, We even have a pretty good idea on the handset's shape and dimensions. This is mostly based on leaked images of various cases for the future smartphone, but fairly recently we also saw some alleged schematics of the Galaxy S6 that seemed pretty accurate and credible enough.
Based on those info, somebody has taken up the task to fire up some CAD software and produce a few gorgeous and very detailed renders of the Galaxy S6. At this point these images are as close as we can get to actually seeing Samsung's next flagship and judging from what we already know the renders should be close to, if not absolutely accurate.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 should be equally impressive in terms of hardware. Rumors point toward an Exynos 7420 octa-core power house of a CPU along with an equally impressive Mali-T760 GPU and 3GB LPDDR4 RAM. The Galaxy S6 should spout a 5.1-inch QHD display and a rather impressive camera setup - 20MP OIS main shooter and 5MP front-facing.
There is no doubt now, Samsung is releasing its long waited Galaxy S6 flagship on March,1st event. To confirm that even further... Today, Samsung Mobile official twitter account posted a new Teaser Video of the "TheNextGalaxy" which focuses on the Galaxy S6 camera.
The short video that talks about "great vision" and a "unique view" and finishes with the silhouette of a camera module. The video itself is pretty abstract, the camera moves through a dark tunnel and there's light at the end of it. Watch the Teaser Below!
The Galaxy S6 rear camera will allegedly have a 20MP sensor with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) that should do well in low light conditions. There was even talk of RAW shooting with complete manual controls.
As a way to enhance the User Experience, Samsung will be making some major changes to the TouchWiz UI on its upcoming flagship, Samsung Galaxy S6. According to the the latest reports, Samsung will remove some of the pre-installed default Samsung apps such as S Voice, S Health, S Note and Scrapbook from TouchWiz UI.
Those apps will be available for download through the company's Galaxy Apps store. Samsung may pre-install few of Microsoft apps in their place as a result of the deal between the two companies regarding their patent royalty case.
If true, the Galaxy S6 will come with Microsoft OneNote, OneDrive, Office Mobile bundled with a free Office 365 subscription as well as Skype. Trimming the TouchWiz features is also allegedly making the Galaxy S6 Lollipop experience a lot more fluid and quicker than the similarly updated Galaxy Note 4.
Changes that will be made to TouchWiz on Galaxy S6:
• Samsung's default keyboard app supposedly looks more like a mix between the keyboard on the Galaxy Tab S and the iOS keyboard.
• More theming options are available.
• All Samsung's apps are more colorful.
• You can select between 4×4, 4×5 and 5×5 icon layouts for the app drawer.
• The app drawer no longer supports endless cycling through the list of apps.
• The music app still runs in full-screen mode at all times.
• The dialer app looks "green as grass", or that's what we were told.
Samsung hinted on it's newest official blog post that the Galaxy S6 will feature a built-in wireless charging, actually the company hinted that its whole 2015 Galaxy line-up will feature wireless-charging.
"With our upcoming Galaxy smartphones, users will be able to enter a new wireless world like never before." - Samsung Tomorrow, Official Blog
Blessing us with a unibody phone, which will be a first for the Galaxy S line, Samsung has apparently decided to compensate for the sealed battery compartment with highly efficient inductive charging for the Galaxy S6. This might also have something to do with the famed rich accessory ecosystem that Samsung is reportedly prepping around its new flagship.
The latest blog post from Samsung, which shines a spotlight on the wireless charging standards, history, and latest developments, is another hint in that direction, so we can't wait to see how the company has managed to embed wireless charging in a metal unibody.
Carphone Warehouse has started accepting pre-registrations for Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone. Although the UK retailer hasn't revealed the device's name, calling it the "New Samsung Galaxy", it's all but confirmed that the handset will carry the Galaxy S6 name.
The retailer is also accepting pre-registrations for HTC's upcoming flagship smartphone, currently know as the new HTC One. The latter is going to debut as HTC One M9.
For those who aren't in the know, pre-registrations only allow people to express their interest in a product, compared to pre-orders that allow you to actually reserve a unit. Both Samsung and HTC are expected to unveil their respective flagships on March 1, at MWC 2015 in Barcelona.
Only one week away from the Big unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S6, we are all waiting to see this beast specs and design. While you're waiting... Here's the latest 3D renders concepts for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
These latest renders shows a sleek, metal uni-body devices, one of them a dual-edge curved screen. Both devices in the render is covered with Glass, front and back. The only thing we didn't like is the camera design, it's very edgy and seems like it pops-out of the phone which will make it vulnerable to scratches.
What do you think about these latest Galaxy S6/S6 Edge concepts?
At last, after too many teasers, Samsung decided to show us a small side-glimpse its upcoming flagship Galaxy S6. The Latest video Teaser from the Korean company official YouTube channel titled "Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2015 - The Next Galaxy" hints that the upcoming handset will feature metal body with no borders.
The latter could be a subtle reference to the much rumored Edge variant of the smartphone, or a nod to the design of its top and bottom (see photo above). Samsung Galaxy S6 will debut in a tad over a week, on March,1st in Barcelona. You can watch the Teaser Video below.
On Match,1st Samsung will be officially revealing it's new flagships (Galaxy S6 - Galaxy S6 Edge) at the MWC 2015 in Barcelona. Today, T-Mobile US sign-up page just revealed a photo (above) of the Galaxy S6 Edge with a curved side display with a title "It's almost Here".
The clearly visible metal body and curved display suggest that we are looking at the Edge variant of the Korean giant's next flagship. A number of leaks have already suggested that Samsung will reveal two versions of the Galaxy S6.
Stay Tuned on YouMobile and to find out everything about these upcoming smartphones.
Lately, Samsung switched to premium metal frames for its device's body design. The upcoming Galaxy S6 will allegedly join the trend with a metal frame body which will solve the problems that faced Samsung before on the market for using less than premium materials unworthy of upmarket flagship devices. However, Solving one problem typically creates others in the process, and antenna interference is one result of the metal used on the Galaxy S6's body.
A report in Korean media states that Samsung is resorting to the New FPCB antenna technology in the Galaxy S6, aiming to battle the negative effects of the metal frame on signal reception.
"FPCB" stands for Flexible Printed Circuit Board where thin strips of conductor (copper) are laminated in between two layers of PET polymer. They find wide application in the electronics industry when space constraints limit the use of rigid circuit boards.
The predominantly used type of antennas in recent years are manufactured using the LDS technology, or Laser Direct Structuring. It allows for a precise 3D shape to be modeled, thus fitting in whatever space the engineers find unoccupied in the device. This actually makes it superior to FPCB, the flexibility of which is limited.
Too many rumors and too many leaks. Now, AT&T is getting into the act by showing the same an image of the upcoming curved-body flagship "Galaxy S6 Edge". The only difference is the color scheme used on each teaser.
The same "Six Appeal" line is at top which pretty much confirms that Samsung is the source of the Galaxy S6 image used by both mobile operators. Besides the wrap-around glass that will cover each side of the phone, we can also see a power button that appears to have been moved toward the back of the handset. The home button near the bottom of the phone is also visible.
The Galaxy S6 will be formally introduced on March 1st at MWC 2015 in Barcelona. That is next Sunday.
