Samsung has just announced that its new flagship, Galaxy S6 edge+, will be launched in India. The phone is priced at INR 57,900 ($888) for the 32GB model and will be available for purchase starting August,28th.
The Galaxy S6 edge+ is essentially the bigger variant of the Galaxy S6 edge. It has a larger 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display, 4GB RAM, 3,000mAh battery and wireless fast charging, with the rest of the specifications being identical.
The korean giant also announced that the S6 edge+ is also available for Pre-orders in the UK starting from £749. If you don't feel like ponying up that much cash upfront, you can also opt for a contract with an operator. Vodafone, O2, and Three are all offering up the Galaxy s6 edge+ with a myriad of different Pay Monthly plans. One of them will surely suit your particular needs. The operators all seem to expect shipping to start on September,4th.
"Three" has joined the list of carriers in the UK that offer pre-orders for the HTC One (M9). The phone is available starting at £39 a month with an upfront cost of £19.
For the price you can get 1GB of 4G data and unlimited calls and SMS. There are also 2GB 4G data and unlimited 4G data options for £42 and £47 per month but the £19 upfront cost for the device remains. The HTC One (M9) can be had in either Silver/Rose gold and Gunmetal Gray.
And if you weren't familiar yet the HTC One (M9) can also be pre-ordered in Gold from EE UK, from Vodafone UK, O2 UK and also through Carphone Warehouse with deals from O2, Vodafone and EE.
Samsung is keen to get the early adopters to try out virtual reality headsets for themselves. They're doing this by offering a pre-order bonus of a Gear VR headset with every purchase of a Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. The pre-order must be in place before March 18 and can be ordered via a web form starting March 4.
Oculus is getting in on the act too (Gear VR actually comes from Oculus) with an additional offer of six Gear VR games bundled for free in the package. This has a retail value of $50. The games bundle will vary from mobile carrier to mobile carrier, but may include Land's End, Anshar Wars 2, and EVE: Gunjack.
For consumers who need a new phone and were also considering delving into some virtual reality, the cost of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge comes close to just the cost of the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive alone. For buyers who move fast, they can enjoy perhaps their first taste of virtual reality with the Gear VR headset without paying more than the cost of the S7/S7 edge. These types of consumers may also find the separate cost of a high-end virtual reality headset from Oculus to be too expensive.

Samsung has announced its thinnest and lightest tablet ever, Galaxy Tab S2 just few days ago. The device is launching with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop pre-installed.

It wasn't long ago when seeing a "Microsoft Edition" logo stamped on a Android powered phone by Samsung wasn't really something you would expect. However, things have now changed and Microsoft is out of the mobile game as a manufacturer. That doesn't necessarily mean though that Microsoft and Samsung still can't partner up and that's exactly what has happened with the Galaxy S8's launch.
Microsoft retail stores in the US will be selling a Microsoft Edition of the S8 and S8+. According to the software giant, "A Microsoft customization is applied to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Microsoft Edition when the devices are unboxed and connected to Wi-Fi." In addition to the Office tools already bundled into every regular device, this edition will also come with Cortana and Outlook.
If you are wondering what visual changes the Microsoft Edition Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be sporting, know that there will be none. It won't even cost you anything extra to pick it up. If you want, it is available for pre-order right now in America.

If you were planning to get a S8 or S8+ from Sprint, you will now have one more reason to do so. If you pre-order either of the two devices from Sprint, Samsung will throw in an e-gift certificate worth $100 with the package. The certificate can however, only be used to buy or get a discount from the Samsung website.
If you choose any other carrier, there are some pretty good deals going on there as well and it mainly includes a gift offer. The gift offer translates to the buyer getting a 256GB MMC card, an Oculus content box and a Gear VR with controller/AKG headphones by paying only $99 extra. Granted it's not a bad deal, but we could be seeing better ones in the future.
Which offer appeals to you more? The gift bundle for an extra 100 bucks or the $100 e-certificate? Let us know in the comments.

Samsung is confident that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will outsell the S8 and S8+ everywhere, but will that really happen? It's only natural to expect that your current flagship handsets will outsell the previous ones, but if a report straight out of South Korea is anything to go by, that might be a harder task for the S9 this year. Apparently, the pre-order numbers for the S9 and S9+ are nothing to brag about for Samsung yet, since they are possibly the same as they were in case of the S8. However, what could be more alarming for the company is that the pre-order numbers could actually be even lower than it was for the S8 at this stage in 2017.
Keep in mind that these are unconfirmed facts and the S9 and S9+ pre-orders just opened up roughly two days ago. Let's wait until Samsung officially discloses the pre-order numbers before passing judgement on the S9's future!

Big day for all Google Nexus Fans worldwide, as Google Play Store starts to accept Pre-orders for the Moto Nexus 6. You can now pre-order your Nexus 6, a $649 gets you the 32GB model, and if that's not enough, you can spring for the 64GB version at $699.

Both versions are available in white or blue. Shipping and taxes vary on speed and location; typically Play Store hardware is offered with ground, two-day, or next-day shipping options at increasing expense, though apparently they aren't leaving the warehouse until late in November. Nexus 6 buyers get 6 free months of Google Play All Access.
Moto Nexus 6 is coming to all major US carriers. AT&T and Sprint have made their plans official. AT&T will start taking pre-orders for the phablet today (November,12th). Only the Blue color version will be available.
The Nexus 6 price with a 2-year contract is going to be $249.99.

Lucky Germans, Several German retailers have already launched their Galaxy Note Edge and Note 4 pre-order campaign, so you can book your unit right now and never worry about the "out of stock" words at the luanch day. The not-so-good part that the retailers are asking for a very high price for pre-orders... higher than expected.
Pre-orders are taken at the mind-blowing €995.91 which is almost $1,300. Amazon DE even has the guts to say that you are actually saving just over €3 from the regular retail price, which according to it will stand at €999. Even though Samsung has failed to quote a specific price, we can bet that this is far from the truth. while the Note 4 price in Amazon US is only $899.99.
Things are looking far more reasonable over at Notebooksbilliger, redcoon and MediaMarkt, which all charge €699 to book your Galaxy Note 4. The first of those stores also lists the Galaxy Note Edge on pre-order, but it comes with another €1,000 price tag.
The launch day for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has come. The flagship phablet will be available in India starting from Today, October,14th.
Pre-orders will start today and the phone will ship out on October,17th. That matches the delayed date for the UK launch. Pricing is rather steep, starting at INR58,300 ($950).
