IFA 2015 was held in September this year and the next major event for world's mobile geeks will be the - CES 2016. It will happen in Las Vegas in January, 2016. Many mobile device manufacturers will be showcasing their devices in this expo.
In general Samsung unveils a lot of consumer electronic products during these kind of events, and it will follow the same route during CES 2016 too. The South Korean electronics behemoth has already started sending out invites for the expo. They will organise a press conference at CES 2016 on January 5, 2016 between 14:00 and 14:45 hours. That gives the tech giant good 45 minutes to showcase the products and it is rumoured that some of the devices will be from the Galaxy series.
Right now there is no information on what Samsung has planned to show during the keynote. Although it is highly unlikely that they will unveil S7 in the event, some are speculating the same. The reason behind this is that Samsung usually reveals the S series during this time period. The company might showcase the Galaxy A9, which is supposed to be powered by the Snapdragon 620 chipset, along with some other audio and video devices.
Samsung already started rolling-out the official Android 5.0 Lollipop update to the Galaxy S5 users back in February making it the first Galaxy device to get the Lollipop update. Since the update was released, it faced many delays caused by various bugs being reported by the users who got it first, still there is some users complaining about the update stability on their Galaxy S5 devices.
SamsungUK admits that there are issues with the Galaxy S5 update, via its official Twitter account, and confirmed that Samsung's Engineers are sending-out micro updates that contains a fix for these bugs. It's not yet clear if the micro update is Android Build 5.0.1 or even 5.0.2 or just a hot fix update that will keep the same 5.0 build on the device after installing.

The Galaxy S5 users should and wait see the upcoming software update for their devices, it may solve all their problems once and for all. Stay tuned!
Samsung's flagship smartphones are considered to be the most secure Android options, after Google's own Pixel series, but that idea is under some scrutiny now. Apparently, the Galaxy Note 8 and the Galaxy S9/S9+ have developed a bug that sends the user's photos to random contacts via SMS! As if that was not bad enough, consider the fact that the bug leaves no trace of this unauthorized activity for the user to realize what has happened either.
This bug is not a rumor as Samsung is already investigating the issue and they have even set up a helpline: 1-800-SAMSUNG for customers. Most are of the opinion that this bug is a result of the Rich Communication Services (RCS) update sent out by carriers across the US. Although T-Mobile has denied responsibility for this, RCS is the likely cause, especially since both the update and the bug are exclusive to the USA.
