    Samsung announced its newest line of smartphones (made for giants) back in April: Galaxy Mega. If the name isn't indication enough, maybe the screen sizes of these phones will get your phablet flags waving, as Mr. Fisher would say. The Mega comes in two sizes – 5.8 and 6.3-inches. Huge, at least for being marketed as a simply a phone, is an understatement. Where the Galaxy Note 8.0 (non-US model) and Fonepad are small tablets with phone capabilities, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 is nothing more than a giant phone. We received one yesterday morning and, as always, gave it the unboxing treatment. ...

    While nothing's yet to go official, it sure feels like a lot of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active's story has already been revealed. We've seen what sure seems to be the phone in the flesh, checked out some specs, and heard about a possible AT&T launch. Today we add to that tale with the first leaked render of the handset. True enough, it's sporting an AT&T logo, and that date on the screen sure seems to jibe with the theory that we could hear this guy announced on June 20 (going up for sale a day later, perhaps). There's no metallic orange this time around, but a more reserved gray ...

    The Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, together with the 5.8, were introduced last month by the South Korean phone maker and the largest among the two will apparently arrive in the U.K. in July. That's not exactly in-line with the rumored availability dates but later is always better than never. Those who love their big screens know to expect a 6.3-inch display with HD resolution (at 233PPI), 1.7GHz Dual Core processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8 and 16GB Internal Memory variants (expandable via microSD cards to 64GB), eight-megapixel main shooter in addition to the 1.9-megapixel webcam. It runs Android 4.2 ...

    Ready to start-off the week with a little bit of a smartphone mystery? We've got one for you that crosses paths with a few different lines of Samsung handsets, and really leaves us wondering just what the hardware could really be. Try to follow along with us and learn what we know about the so-called Samsung Melius. According to tipster superstar evleaks, the Samsung Melius will be an upcoming Android phone, model SGH-I527, for AT&T. The first twist is that the name Melius is one that has been previously associated with Samsung's Tizen efforts. A rumor from earlier this month claimed ...

    The Galaxy S 4 may be the Samsung Android getting the bulk of the market's attention, but it's far from alone as a 2013 addition to the company's lineup. Lately, we've been talking about a whole bunch of new Samsung devices, from those that have already gone official, like the two Galaxy Mega models, to ones that remain the stuff of rumors, like the Galaxy S 4 Active and S 4 Zoom, which we just heard of yesterday. Now we get some idea of when many of these models could arrive, thanks to a leaked list of launch dates. This data may be specific to European releases, but at least it might ...

    Apparently Samsung wants to create a phone and/or tablet that's perfect for every person on the face of the planet -- even if that takes 7 billion different models. Okay, that may be a bit of an over-statement, but honestly! Samsung, can't you do something about your runaway screen sizes? The Galaxy Note II has a diagonal screen measurement of 5.5-inches. That's a pretty big "phone". It's so big, in fact, that we had to coin a new term to describe it: the "phablet" -- part phone, part tablet. It's a strange beast, but it ends up working pretty well, as long as your hands are big enough. We ...

    It seems Android smartphone superstar Samsung won't be happy until it offers a Galaxy device at every possible screen size and price point. That's a trend we've been commenting on for a while, but we're not talking about brand dilution or new product categories today. The Galaxy product line seems in no danger of foundering under the weight of its wide selection, and the latest products out of Seoul aren't exactly blazing a new trail in form factor. They're phablets -phone/tablet hybrids- through and through. We're talking about the new behemoths on the Android playground, natch: the duo ...

    Last week, we heard that Samsung might be expanding beyond the confines of its Galaxy Note lineup when it comes to the company's phablet offerings, and could be planning to release a pair of so-called Galaxy Mega handsets, measuring-in with 5.8 and 6.3-inch screens. We had little but those sizes to go on earlier, but now some new info on the pair has arrived, attempting to describe their hardware in a little more detail. As you should have been able to tell from the pic accompanying the earlier news (and up top again for your convenience), the Mega 5.8 will be a dual-sim DUOS model. ...

    Sometimes you just have to schedule a podcast a few hours before a major news event, and as a result you've got to scramble to come up with some valid-sounding speculation about just how useful a Facebook Phone could really be. It's not like we haven't tossed this notion around before, but doing it on the air, off-the-cuff, imbues our lives with a certain energy, a certain je ne sais quoi, if you will. Or even if you won't. Whatever; we have a good time riffing. You'll listen and like it! Ahem. All that, plus some chat on just how big a copycat LG's Optimus G Pro is - and how well it does ...
