According to new reports emerging out of Korea, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will feature a “far better” hardware compared to the Galaxy S5 and will break cover on September 3, just days before the IFA event kicks off in Berlin. The report also gives us some confirmation of the hardware, hinting at a 5.7 inch OLED display as well as a Snapdragon 805 chipset being used. The presence of a 2K resolution display cannot be ruled out either. Much like the Galaxy Alpha, the smartphone will reportedly have a metal chassis, although the...

Samsung’s exclusive Milk Music service has just received a new premium subscription service for $3.99 which allows users to skip unlimited tracks, mute DJ commentary and even listen to stations without a data connection. The app is also getting a new sleep timer feature which closes the app when not in use for a while. Customers will be able to subscribe to this paid option with the latest version of Milk Music. Unfortunately, the service still remains an exclusive to the U.S., although we’re certain Samsung has plans to expand...

T-Mobile has just announced a new midrange offering from Samsung known as the Galaxy Avant. Considering that it’s a budget handset, buyers will only have to shell out $214 full retail or $9 per month for a period of two years through the carrier’s monthly installment plan. The smartphone has a 4.5 inch 960 x 540 display, a quad core 1.2 GHz processor, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, 1.5GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera, Android 4.4 KitKat and 4G LTE. This is essentially a carrier rebranded version of the...

A new report is suggesting that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha smartphone will be shown off to the world on the 4th of August. This is contrary to previous reports which hinted at a September release of the handset. But given that the Galaxy Alpha is merely a midrange offering, it won’t make sense for the device to share the stage with the Galaxy Note 4. As we all know by now, the Galaxy Alpha is supposed to be a midrange offering with the design of a more premium Galaxy flagship. It is believed to come equipped with a fingerprint scanner...

Among the current crop of smartwatches, the Moto 360 stands out in a big way thanks to its unique circular display design. But it seems like Samsung might not be far away from having such a smartwatch of its own someday. The Korean manufacturer has filed design patents for three such smartwatches with American authorities. The smartwatches shown here have charging ports on the edge of the wristband, meaning that they won’t be user replaceable. Also, there seems to be a camera on the strap, which hints that these could be Tizen...

Samsung has just filed a trademark for the ‘Gear S’ wearable with the American authorities, giving rise to speculations about yet another smartwatch like offering breaking cover from the Korean manufacturer. It seems like September will prove to be a very auspicious month for the company with the Galaxy Note 4 as well as the Gear VR head mounted wearable expected to break cover. It is likely that a new smartwatch called the Gear S could be shown off at about the same time. Since this is only a trademark filing, we’re...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is now being sold for a decent price over at Best Buy. The tablet usually retails for $399.99 but can now be yours for just $279.99. This is a pretty decent deal on a tablet which packs a 2K resolution display and has a pretty capable specs sheet as well. We’re not certain if this is a limited period promotion or a long term discount, but it will certainly attract potential customers. To refresh your memory, the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 sports a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, a 1.9 GHz octa core Exynos...

Let’s face it, we live in a tech world where bigger is considered better. And Samsung has been a long advocate of this policy with its smartphones and its displays. But according to new sources, the company’s upcoming Galaxy Alpha smartphone could feature a miserly 4.8 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, the same as the two year old Galaxy S III. This has clearly taken us by surprise considering that Samsung is supposedly touting this to be its first metal clad handset to launch in recent times. Keeping...
