According to a Korean online publication that’s usually spot-on with this sort of speculation, Samsung is indeed gearing up for a commercial release of the highly anticipated Galaxy S5 by the end of 2014’s first quarter.
A total of six devices have been removed from Futuremark’s device database for rigging benchmark tests.
According to an alleged Samsung internal roadmap leaked to the press, the Galaxy S4 and Note 3 are to unsurprisingly score Android 4.4 updates the first in the company’s line-up, sometime in January 2014, followed soon after by the S3 and Note 2.
Celebrity endorsement might have not helped HTC’s dwindling financials too much (mostly because the Taiwanese only made one commercial starring Robert Downey Jr.), but that’s not stopping Samsung from adding LeBron James to its already impressive partner roster.
When the original Galaxy Note was announced, people wrote it off without giving it a second thought. Two years later, the Galaxy Note series has become a huge success for the world’s largest smartphone maker.
Ever since John Legere took over T-Mobile US, things started looking rosier and rosier for America’s number four wireless service provider, despite it still being kept at bay by Verizon, AT&T and Sprint as far as subscriber counts go.
Brazen, cheeky and often rude commercials mocking the competition used to be Samsung and Apple territory until not long ago in the mobile landscape, but Nokia and LG have recently joined the fun.
Quirkiness and exoticism are what usually describe best the seasonal new gadget line-ups of Japan’s leading wireless carriers, but NTT DoCoMo seems to have turned a page with the latest fall-winter selection of phones, which is downright droolworthy.
Pantech unveils Vega Secret Note, a 5.9-inch Galaxy Note 3 contender with stylus and fingerprint scanner
Don’t look now, Samsung, but your reign of terror over the booming phablet market is about to end. Or at least be seriously challenged for a change, though Pantech’s spanking new Vega Secret Note is likely to keep it modest and only go for South Korean gold.
Second Galaxy Note 3 commercial: collapsing buildings, kids singing and Lionel Messi doing nothing (video)
Ever since Samsung has decided to quit mocking Apple in its Galaxy commercials, things have gone from weird to weirder to weirdest. Remember the dancing ninjas/goat-centric Icelandic ad for the Galaxy S4 (though technically Sammy did mock Apple if you paid close attention)?
Pantech has been quite the thorn in Samsung’s side for the past couple of years as far as Korean smartphone sales are concerned and, as impressive as the Galaxy S4 or Galaxy Note 3 may look, the Vega makers continue to breathe down Sammy’s neck.
Let the flexible games begin. It’s what we’ve wanted so badly to proclaim for so long and at last we’re in a position to actually hope the first curved smartphone or smartphones are forthcoming.
Rumor has it: Flexible Galaxy Note 3 coming in October, Galaxy S5 to rock HTC One-like aluminum unibody
That’s right, it’s that time of the year again. The time dubious, unverifiable sources start to fuel rumors of Samsung going on a different design path for future members of the Galaxy. You all know what I’m talking about, metal and flexibility.
It’s been a long time since we first heard rumors of smartphones with flexible displays being in the works, numerous prototypes and pre-release models have been demoed and showcased at tech events in the last year or so, but a bendable commercially ready product still seems a thing of the future.
Despite everyone from Sony to LG trying to steal Samsung’s thunder before and during the IFA announcement of the Galaxy Note 3, the third-gen phablet is bound to snatch the most headlines over the next weeks and even months. By a mile.
Two days, five hours and counting. That’s what’s left at the time of this writing until Samsung will finally take the wraps off the Galaxy Note III, Galaxy Gear and maybe even the Note 12.2.
Brace yourselves, the teasers are coming. Odder or created less to shock and more to, you know, tease, but certainly vague as they come, the IFA 2013 promos are bound to capture the headlines for the next three or four days.
The rumor mill has leaked yet another image of the not-so-mysterious Samsung Galaxy Note III.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 rumors are a dime a dozen with just five days left until the phone will become official, but here’s one report that’s both unexpected and somewhat startling. Not to mention sort of exclusive, since this is the first time we’re hearing of such a scenario.
Rumors regarding highly anticipated devices such as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 might be a dime a dozen, especially with less than a month left to its formal intro, but when a website with Sam Mobile’s track record publishes a spec sheet based on a trusted insider’s tip, we have to listen up.
