    It would make a lot of sense for Samsung to announce the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in the same color options as the Galaxy S6 Edge, just as it would equally make sense for the South Koreans to unveil special color options to make the larger version stand out. It doesn't really matter now, as we're just speculating, upon seeing these alleged stills purportedly representing a gold Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus (or, sometimes referred to as the Galaxy S6+ Edge). The source of the report also published an alleged picture of the device revealing its specifications: Quad HD display (of yet unknown size, ...

    The "2016 flagship killer" -- not our words -- should be officially unveiled at a special event next week, but we already know a lot (almost everything) about the upcoming OnePlus 2 smartphone, thanks mostly to leaks and reports, as well as official confirmation from the company itself. Depending on who you tend to believe, the OnePlus 2 will either have a 13-, or a 16MP main camera on the back. That camera, its output, to be more specific, has been compared by the company's CEO with some popular devices out there. The images posted constitute a OnePlus 2 vs iPhone 6, and OnePlus 2 vs ...

    Flagship UHD (Ultra HD, aka 4K) TVs from Samsung are being referred to, by the manufacturer, as SUHD units, and, if you're planning on purchasing one in the United States, the South Korean manufacturer is giving you a free Galaxy S6 smartphone. A couple of restrictions apply though: the TV of your choice has to be one of the following units, identified with these model numbers: JS9500, JS9100, JS9000, JS8500, JS850D, or JS8600. So, if you're getting one of the aforementioned TVs, a 32GB "Samsung Galaxy S6 32GB device for your selected wireless carrier" can be yours, if you submit ...

    It's tough to get excited about tablets nowadays. With the rise of ever-more-capable large format smartphones like the Galaxy Note 4 and Google Nexus 6, the "large" screens of tablets are no longer as alluring – and their higher price tags not quite as easy to justify. To really stand out, a modern tablet needs an element of novelty (like the innovative Sailfish OS on the Jolla Tablet), a rare hardware feature (like the water-resistance of Sony's Xperia line) or a compelling productivity enhancement (like the S Pen stylus on Samsung's larger Galaxy Note tablets). The Galaxy Tab S2, ...

    The reports were spot on; as we expected it to happen, Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy Tab S2, a possible Android-powered iPad killer. The tablet (or tablets, as there are two screen sizes) were subject to a massive leak over the weekend, but now that the announcement has been made, we can finally rely on official spec-sheets, instead of chatter. There are two models in the Galaxy Tab S2 family: the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7-inch, and the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0-inch. The two fresh slates are identical, except for the screen size (9.7-inch versus 8-inch), physical dimensions (169 x 237.3 x ...

    We've already seen a Galaxy Note 5 render (not the official one, though), aside from all the other rumors, leaks, and reports, and we have a strange feeling that we know almost everything about the phablet Samsung intends to reportedly unveil on August 12. We're certain this is not the case, as the South Korean company might have one or two aces left up its sleeve, but today we get the chance to look at another Galaxy Note 5 render, which is looking real good. Designed by CAD artist Ivo Marić, they show off a Galaxy Note 5 that, to nobody's surprise, looks a lot like the Samsung Galaxy ...

    We know little about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, but we do know, from previous rumors, that it should be a tablet which has a design inspired by the Galaxy S6 (front and back), that it's been confirmed by UAProf files, that it should have a Super AMOLED screen, and Samsung should make it official sometime next week (on Monday, July 20, to be specific). Now, according to a different report, based on information from a different source, the Monday, July 20 date is being reconfirmed. And, not only that, but the report claims to have official press images of both models, the Samsung Galaxy Tab ...

    While the leaks just keep on coming and coming, we haven't so far seen anything concerning the Galaxy Note 5 S-Pen. We've heard, however, some rumors (especially after seeing those recent cases leak, which revealed the bottom of the device with the flush S-Pen) that the Galaxy Note 5 S-Pen would either be somehow automatically ejected via a software command, or could very well be spring-loaded, and the user would have to push it in to release. The image above claims to represent the Galaxy Note 5 S-Pen, and, nonetheless, seems to match what we've previously seen in the leaks, with a ...

    The weekend leak frenzy continues, this time, with the upcoming Galaxy Note 5, the device Samsung intends to reportedly unveil earlier than expected, on August 12; also a device that has been heavily leaked/was subject to lots of reports recently. A recent case leak raises some questions about the S-Pen, while showing off the bottom of the device, which seems to match previously leaked images, as well as a recent non-official render we've seen. The device you see above is allegedly a Galaxy Note 5 prototype; a mule, to be more specific (a device which often features final hardware ...

    While we're eagerly waiting for additional information regarding Samsung's alleged earlier announcement of the Galaxy Note 5 on August 12 -- with more and more reports coming in -- we have to admit that the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus has been somewhat neglected by the rumor mill recently. Don't worry, the upcoming phone is back in the headlines with this report from today that allegedly brings us a dummy of the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus pictured in the stills above and below. If it wasn't for the Galaxy Note 4 in two of the four leaked Galaxy S6 Edge Plus dummy pictures, we'd be inclined, and nobody ...

    It's been a year now since Samsung launched its Galaxy Tab S tablets with their bright, beautiful OLED displays. For the past few months, we've been hearing about the company's work towards a second-gen update to the line, giving the tablets a new shape, possibly a very slim build, and what could be some best-in-class hardware. All that's left, really, is for Samsung to formally introduce the models. Rumors of a June launch event clearly haven't panned out, but now we may finally be ready to see these guys go official, with word that Samsung may launch the Galaxy Tab S2 first thing next ...

    Leaks to date have suggested that Samsung is planning something new for the S Pen stylus we'll find in the Galaxy Note 5. While past Galaxy Note models exposed the end of the S Pen while tucked away within the phablet, allowing users to pull it out with the graze of a fingernail, Galaxy Note 5 leaks have suggested an S Pen that sits flush along the phone's body, with no exposed rim by which to pull the stylus out. That's helped fuel a few theories about the the new S Pen might operate, and now one of the latest case designs to arrive might be able to let us narrow things down even further. ...

    If you have a Samsung Galaxy S6, you know how good the camera on the latest smartphone from the South Korean manufacturer is. Even if you've read reviews of or seen camera samples from the device, you've probably got the idea that the shooter this phone packs is one that compete with the best of the best. That's why it'd make sense for Samsung to focus on a strong point such as this one in its massive Galaxy S6 advertising campaign, and the latest Samsung Galaxy S6 ad reflects that, focusing entirely on the camera. The ad focuses on how fast the camera launches (and how easy it is to get ...

    Sometimes, you'd like to believe that there's an obvious answer to rumors that have been allowed to stew for a long time. When will we see this new Galaxy Note 5? Around the time of IFA? On August 12? 15 minutes past the next hour? We haven't the answers just yet, but FCC documents filed by Samsung are giving hints at an August launch. How far ahead of IFA the tech giant wants to get with the Note 5 is still anyone's guess. Samsung's always had a blast with its own Unpacked event off-site from the Messe Berlin, so we're waiting on possible changes to our coverage schedule as well. The ...

    Apple reportedly has very ambitious plans for the launch of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. Most rumors still point to a September launch, and within them we hear that Apple has ordered a crazy 90 million units in order to meet its expected demand. Obviously the device's internals are key for these orders to be met, and today we get details on how things will work. First of all, we hear that both Samsung and TSMC will be in charge of building the A9 processor that's rumored for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The source claims that Apple recently made some last minute changes to the ...

    Apple surprised some of us by including its own SIM cards with the launch of the iPad Air 2. In the past, each data-capable iPad would bring the respective SIM card of the carrier you purchased the tablet with, but this new Apple SIM gave users the convenience to switch carriers easily, avoiding you the need to visit carriers and get that done. Reports claim that this is not just something that ends with Apple's tablet lineup, as today we learn of others interested. Reports claim that both Apple and Samsung are pushing for the e-SIM card concept to become a standard across OEMs and ...

    To hear the latest rumors, we're less than a month away from Samsung's next Unpacked event, when the company might introduce both the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+, more or less a no-stylus version of the Note 5 with a dual-curved-edge screen. And if Samsung really is looking to get a head-start on the IFA launches that will follow a few weeks later, it would only make sense for us to start seeing the arrival of the kind of phone evidence that usually lands just prior to a handset going official. That's just what we're looking at today, as certification paperwork surfaces at the ...

    We heard a lot about the upcoming Galaxy Note 5. You can check out everything we know about it here, including the possible August 12 launch date, specs, renders, leaks, as well as the possibility of Europe seeing the device later than other regions. Today's report seems to confirm the rumored August 12 announcement date -- and, with so many different confirmations from so many different sources, we might as well just take it for granted -- as well as availability for certain markets nine days later, on August 21. While we're waiting for the device to get official, how about we take a look ...

    The thinnest Samsung phone in the world would be pretty cool to have, right? Having seen the chassis of what many agree is a beautiful smartphone, you may be wondering how much dough you're going to have to put down to actually get your hands on this thing. While an official Samsung Galaxy A8 price hasn't been revealed by Samsung quite yet, a Chinese retailer does have a sales listing for the phone available, in which we're looking at what seems reasonably enough to be the cost of the device. Chinese website CNMO shows that the device will retail for 3,199 Chinese yen – approximately ...

    Samsung caught a little fire with its launch of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. For the first time in years, the company decided to not adopt the trend of Snapdragon processors in favor for its new Exynos offering. This particular decision spiked a little concern given our experience comparing Snapdragon and Exynos variants of the same device, but it does seem Samsung played its cards right. AnTuTu has just published some numbers on the most powerful Android smartphones in the world, and at the moment, the Galaxy S6 is king with 67520 points, and Galaxy S6 Edge follows with 63910 points. ...

    For several months back there around the early part of the year, rumors had been landing pretty regularly about a round-screened Samsung smartwatch, codenamed Orbis and tipped to possibly launch as the Gear A. And while we've yet to see the wearable go official, or even get a look at the actual hardware, Samsung's as good as confirmed the project, releasing an SDK for round-screened watches that identifies this circular form factor as the company's choice for “the next Gear.” Now as we wait for an official announcement, a new leak attempts to give us a better idea of what to expect ...

    Smartphones are becoming more and more capable, but, sadly, the same can not be said about battery technology. While devices are faster, have larger screens and resolution, thinner cases, battery life is a major issue. While there are several solutions for countering that, they all require an accessory that, most of the times, has to be also charged. What you choose to extend your battery life is up to you. With this self charging smartphone case, your phone will be able to charge itself. Up on Kickstarted, Nikola Labs' case (for the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6) will be able to capture ...

    There has to surely be some fire somewhere, as there's definitely a lot of smoke. We're, of course, talking about the Galaxy Note 5, and the recent rumors according to which Samsung will announce the phablet early, at an alleged August 12 even in NYC. Whether it will come alone, or in pair with the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus, as other reports suggest, is yet unknown, but we know to expect stellar specs, including 4GB of RAM, in a body that would look a lot like this. Now that you're excited enough, time to bring you down a bit, especially if you're living in Europe. A report claims that a ...

    The amount of rumors surrounding the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is crazy. There's still a strong debate over how many variants of the Galaxy Note will be launched, and the purpose of the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus in a mixed launch with the Galaxy Note 5. Those of you scrambling to see which option will better address your needs are in for a treat of information today. Case maker ITSKINS has just revealed a couple of renders of the next phablets that Samsung will launch. First of all, it seems that the Galaxy Note 5 will be a stand-alone product, with no Edge variant to keep it ...
