Groupon is offering a very good price on the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 and 12.2. Both are refurbished models, but they’ve been restored to working condition, so you will have absolutely no issue with usability. The 8.4 inch model can be had for just $174.99, which is a pretty decent price even for a refurbished product. The relatively larger Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is going for $359.99 though, which again is justified given the hardware on board. The listing also included the 10.1 inch Galaxy Tab Pro variant, which has now sold out....

A new report from the WSJ states that Qualcomm is readying an updated version of the Snapdragon 810 chipset for the Samsung Galaxy S6. It is believed that Qualcomm is taking the overheating concerns seriously and will make the changes to its SoC accordingly. However, failing to launch the chip by March, Samsung could go ahead with the Exynos 6 chip as initially planned. LG, which is using the Snapdragon 810 chip on the G Flex 2 has claimed that the Snapdragon 810 has no overheating issues on board. Samsung and Qualcomm have refused...

A concept of the Galaxy S6 Leaks and rumors regarding the Samsung Galaxy S6 are increasing in frequency with each passing day.

A concept of the Samsung Galaxy S6 There has been enough talk about Samsung’s use of the Snapdragon 810 chipset on the Galaxy S6. Given the delays faced by Qualcomm’s new chip, it was widely believed that Samsung will go with its own Exynos 6 chipset instead. And it now seems like the company is leaning heavily towards the use of the Exynos 6 owing to the overheating issues faced by the Snapdragon 810 SoC. Although Snapdragon 810 would have been the company’s preferred choice of chipset, using the Exynos 6 might make...

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to launch in under two months. While it’s understood that the device will be available in a water resistant model like last year’s Galaxy S5, a new rumor now suggests that this year, there will be a regular variant of the Galaxy S6 without water resistance on board. While it seems like a downgrade to remove the water resistance feature, it would result in the phone not having a lot of unnecessary flaps. The smartphone is expected to be announced on the 2nd of March, which is just a day after...

Yes, boys and girls, it’s that time of year again. The time we really don’t know anything about the way the mobile industry will be shaped, transformed and, hopefully, innovated over the ensuing eight to ten months. Not for sure, though we can’t help but feel fired up for what’s to come. And speculate, and gossip, and engage in incessant rumormongering. Then, the world heavyweight title contenders go official, and comparisons galore. Before long, the cycle reboots, and the rumor bonanza starts all over. It’s irritating in a...

After the Android 5.0.2 update for the Nexus 7 went live earlier today, the Nexus 10 ROM is also up for grabs. Just as the Nexus 7 update file, this one too is coming directly from Google, so you can download it without worry. You will have to make sure that your device has the build number LRX22C to be compatible with the new LRX22G build. The 5.0.2 update should mostly fix some bugs in the Android system, so you won’t be able to see any obvious visual changes. But still, it’s good to see that Google supports a 2012 tablet...
