As secretive as Samsung is trying to be in regards to Android 4.4 KitKat update timelines for its devices, the cat appears to be out of the bag at least as far as the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 are concerned.
Samsung has made yet another apparently unexciting mid-range smartphone official, although the Galaxy Core Advance actually has what it takes to leave a mark on a so far ignored mobile market segment.
In yet another brilliant publicity move boosting its reputation while at the same time dissing on the competition, Nokia has offered an unfortunate Samsung Galaxy S4 owner a Lumia handheld completely free of charge.
It’s no secret anymore Samsung is eyeing the further expansion of its Galaxy Note product catalog with a low-cost “Lite” version of the 5.7-inch GNote 3.
Samsung might be looking to take advantage of Android 4.4 KitKat’s unique optimizations for low memory devices, with more than half a dozen mid to low-end Galaxy family members apparently due for chocolaty software updates in the future.
To make it crystal clear we know nothing for certain on Samsung’s Galaxy S5 yet, rumor now has it the super phone will only land in April 2014 and sport fingerprint recognition technology.
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.
Slated to get underway in brick and mortar stores at 6 pm today, Best Buy’s highly anticipated Black Friday “doorbusters” are live early online, with Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and S4 Active two of the all-around stars of the promotion.
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.
So you thought the Asian onslaught of Android flip phones was a joke, huh? A passing fad, a whim, a bizarre eccentricity as many Westerners tend to describe Oriental customs they don’t get or resonate with.
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.
Listen up, Verizon users, and listen close, as we have both good and bad news for you today. Which one do you want first? Let’s start with the good and look at the half full part of the glass for once, shall we?
Have you ever wondered how much you’d have to pay to take a time machine for a quick ride if such a thing existed?
It’s no secret Samsung is a well-oiled money-making machine, being the undisputed world leader in smartphone sales for a while now. So why in the name of Norse god Odin do the Koreans feel the need to play dirty, gaming benchmarks and gratuitously smearing the competition?
Rumors are a dime a dozen ahead of each and every high-profile mobile tech unveiling, and, with so much time left until Samsung Galaxy S5′s formal intro, it’s definitely not wise to take anything for granted just yet.
It’s a mid-range Android smartphone with a high-end digital camera hitched to it. No, it’s a point-and-shoot that just happens to run Android and support voice calls.
Of the three major diminutive Android flagship versions unveiled so far, Samsung’s Galaxy S4 mini is probably the least exciting on paper, what with HTC’s One mini rocking a far superior screen and sturdy aluminum build and Sony’s Xperia Z1 mini being… well, simply awesome.
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.

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)?
With Android 4.4 KitKat official for more than a month now, it’s certainly a little odd to still be left in a fog as to what exactly will the new OS bring to the table in terms of updates and new features.
