Samsung has finally put an end to the months of leaks about its metal clad A series of smartphones by finally unveiling the Galaxy A3 and the Galaxy A5. Interestingly, there’s no mention of the Galaxy A7 yet, so it’s likely that Samsung is reserving that for the holiday season. Both the A5 and the A3 are midrange offerings with the A5 being the more powerful of the two. The Galaxy A5 comes with a 5 inch 720p display, a 13-megapixel camera on the back, a 5-megapixel portrait camera, 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a 1.2...

Samsung has just posted the financial earnings report for the third quarter of 2014, showing a massive revenue decline in the mobile segment. For the first time in three years, the company’s semiconductor business brought in more money than the mobile wing.

Sprint is now rolling out an OTA update to its variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. Although the smartphone has been forgotten by many, it’s good to know that the device is still supported by the carrier. This update comes directly from Sprint, so there won’t be a change in the Android version. The changelog isn’t as fascinating as a full blown Android update, but it brings forth a couple of nifty additions nevertheless. First and foremost, the update will finally allow users to make WiFi calls to international contacts,...

The report suggests that Samsung will launch all three handsets together, probably in China with other markets to hopefully follow suit subsequently. It is said that Samsung intends to target Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi with these new lineup of handsets. As is the case in the Chinese market, pricing will be crucial...

A few days ago we told you about Verizon’s intentions to carry the developer edition Galaxy Note 4. And the smartphone has gone official today with a price tag of $699.99. This is the no contract version of the smartphone, so you’ll have to shell out the full retail price if you want the Galaxy Note 4 on Verizon with an unlockable bootloader and no carrier bloatware.

Although the tablet hasn’t exactly been officially shown anywhere, it’s safe to assume that a successor to last year’s Galaxy Note 10.1 is on its way. Hardware wise, we can expect the company to make the switch to the Snapdragon...
