You probably know about the Samsung vs. Apple trial of the century that has been going for than 3 years. New Information form a Google lawyer who testified during the currently going trial confirms that Google will Help Samsung's legal defense team in the currently ongoing trial against Apple as part of a contractual obligation between the two tech firms.
Google will take over the defense of some of Apple's patent infringement claims. The search giant will also indemnify Samsung in case it loses on those particular claims.
Google's move is hardly a surprise. Although the company is not named in Apple's lawsuit, most of the trial has to do with Android and its functionality. Top Google engineers have already been summoned to testify that Android was developed independently from iOS. Samsung is making big profits from selling Android devices, while Google makes money indirectly from ads and services while in the same time it distributing the OS for free.
Samsung is always improving its hardware to suite curved and bendable devices. Samsung SDI revealed a small Curved Battery with a capacity of 210mAh, this curved batter will be used inside wearable devices to provide more battery life, faster charging and thinner design.
The newly released battery is manufactured using V-bending technology to increase its energy density. It sits in an aluminum foil package to which allows it to be flexed with no strain.
Samsung Gear 2 Smartwatch has a similar one inside of it. This battery is going to be included on Samsung's future Smart wearable devices.
Rumors about a Premium Galaxy Series from Samsung looks like is going to become true soon. A Samsung phone prototype photos leaked, claimed to be of the upcoming "Premium, Luxury, Galaxy F-Series". This Samsung Galaxy F device will be more expensive than any flagship device Samsung had released before.

While we can't see much of the phone, which is enclosed as secretly as every engineering prototype from Samsung in the last two years, we can see the display, which is claimed to be with QHD (1440x2560 pixels) of resolution, and a 5.2" size. The other top-shelf specs are rumored to be a next-gen 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB RAM, and a 16 MP camera with optical image stabilization. This Specs awas leaked before.
A Samsung phone with such specs already appeared a few times in various benchmarking databases, including last week on GFXBench, so there might be some merit to the speculation.
On the first day of this Month, Samsung announced a new tablets lineup, the Galaxy Tab 4 7.0, 8.0 and 10.1 with very close Specs in different sizes, but no data on the price. Today, thanks to Dutch retailer "Tabletcenter", we now know the price of the whole linw-up in Europe.

- Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 Wi-Fi: €199,99

After released the Galaxy S5, Samsung is now planing to release the Camera version of its flagship device, Galaxy S5 Zooom which is rumored to be called "Galaxy K Zoom". We have the first leaked live photo of the device, which shows us the final look of the device back before it gets official very soon.
There's also a Xenon flash and the leather-like texture on the back, which is a nice step up from the unimaginative and rather smudgy gloss of old. The inscription on the lens also confirms the 10x zoom covering the 24-240mm range in 35mm equivalent. There's much else but the source does stick to the 20 MP resolution.
The rest includes a 4.8" 720p display, Android KitKat with Samsung's TouchWiz UI. We're also expecting either a Quad-core 1.6 GHz chip or the new Exynos hexa-core with two Cortex-A15 and four Cortex-A7 cores.
