From billion dollar settlements to the next big thing and everything in between, it has been a crazy year for Samsung. Nonetheless, Samsung is still projected to ship out a total 420 million phones in 2012.
Remember when Samsung first introduced the “Premium Suite” software upgrade for the Samsung Galaxy Note? Back in spring of 2012, the upgrade included a move to Android 4.0 ICS and introduced several new TouchWiz apps. Now Samsung has officially confirmed a second “Premium Suite” upgrade is on its way in the not-too distant future.
In the most recent Apple vs. Samsung debacle, Apple’s Notification Center is the hot topic. More specifically, Korean News site iNews24 reports that “Samsung Electronics has brought a lawsuit against Apple in a court in South Korea over its ‘Notification Center’ patent infringement.”.
Flexible display technology is by far one of the coolest new concept technologies. Now that Super AMOLED and 1080p displays have been introduced, we look forward for the next big thing, and what better a place to show them off than CES 2013.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 has quickly became one of the most popular phones on the market today. Is it the perfect smartphone? Some would say it is pretty close, though it would be nice if it had a bigger battery. Perhaps something like the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX HD’s 3300mAh Battery? While they won’t be able to get something quite that big, Samsung has released an extended battery for the Galaxy S3 giving it an extra 900mAh
According to SamMobile, Samsung is preparing a new mid-ranged device for its first showing at CES.
While the international version of the Galaxy S3 has had Jelly Bean for about three months, the same can’t be said for the United States. It took quite a bit longer in the States, but now every major carrier has Jelly Bean– Except Verizon. The good news is that the Jelly Bean rolls out to the Verizon network starting today.
There has never been a greater time to buy a smartphone I’d wager. From Nokia to Samsung to Apple and even (surprisingly) LG– there is lot to love. When it comes to iconic smartphone leaders though, we still often hear the names Samsung and Apple come up.
A huge shift is coming for the South Korean based company Samsung. The Korea Times reports that Samsung is planning to focus on organic light emitting diode displays (OLED) and flexible plastic based displays in place of traditional liquid crystal displays (LCD) going forward.
Managed to pick up a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 from Verizon only to find you are now stuck with a locked bootloader? The good news is that Adam Outler has now revealed how to unlock your Note 2 via XDA TV.
Yesterday we reported on the teaser that suggested “Something new” is coming for CES 2013 from Samsung. We personally doubted that Samsung was referring to the highly-anticipated Galaxy S4, and it seems that CNET agrees.
Have an international version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, or more specially model GT-N7100? Exciting news, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean is now available for your downloading pleasure.
Samsung has now officially released a teaser trailer, saying that “Something New” is coming for CES 2013. Before you get too excited, odds are against this being the revelation of the Samsung Galaxy S4. Why? For starters, the S4 would be an improvement, but not really something new.
Now, thanks to a recent FCC Filing, it looks like the Samsung Galaxy Camera will be outfitted with Verizon LTE sometime soon.
While the Samsung Galaxy S3 hasn’t been on the market that terribly long, that doesn’t stop the world from thinking about what’s just around the corner. Just a few months after the Galaxy S3 was released and became popular, rumors began to surface about the next-generation Galaxy S.
Yes, I know that you can head on over to your wireless provider of choice and get a new smartphone for a reduced price when you sign on with a contract, but that’s just not suitable for some people. Some people prefer to have their phones unsubsidized and out of contractual obligations, so if you want a unlocked Galaxy Note II, this is the deal for you.
It seems that Android 4.1.2 is now starting to rollout to a very select few Galaxy S3 users. The latest version is also said to bring multi-window support to the S3.
Do you like the S Pen idea that they have with the Galaxy Note II phablet, but wish you had a bigger canvas to use? Samsung has expanded the Galaxy Note moniker into the true tablet range with the Galaxy Note 10.1 and now you can get it for $50 off.
Could future iPhone and iPad devices be powered by chips built by Intel? A new rumors seems to suggest so. With Samsung and Apple’s relationship becoming so distant, it is possible Intel could extend beyond providing Intel processors for Apple’s PC efforts.
Samsung have decided that every pocket needs it’s own projector, and so are launching their nifty looking Beam Projector.
The Galaxy S3 deal is being offered through Amazon and it’s for the Verizon version of the Android smartphone. As a quick reminder, this phone has a 4.8-inch 720p display, Android 4.0 ICS, 8MP camera, 16GB memory, microSD slot, and it’s mobile hotspot capable. It also takes advantage of Verizon’s 4G LTE network, giving you average data rates in the 5Mbps to 12Mbps range.
In the magical world of Walmart you can apparently get a brand new phone called the Samsung Galaxy S3 920. It is apparently a red smartphone with a Nokia label and Windows Phone 8 screenshot that runs on Android 4.0 and is some kind of crazy half-breed. Wait… what?
Looking to dramatically expand the battery life in your new Samsung Galaxy Note 2? Thanks to the new Mugen Power battery you can now bring the battery up to an impressive 6400 mAh.
With most smartphone owners looking for large screen devices, there have become quite a few great choices. In the 5-inch and higher category, the two most tempting devices on the market are likely going to be the HTC Droid DNA and Samsung Galaxy Note 2. So which should you get?
There’s a reason why every other cell phone company seems to be jumping onto the 5+ inch bandwagon, because Samsung has just announced that the Galaxy Note II has exceeded five million units in worldwide sales.
With the patent wars still going strong, tensions are high in technology land. Just two months after Apple walked away from the courtroom a billion dollars richer, the Silicon Valley giant is trying to further distance itself from Samsung.
What do you do when just one touchscreen won’t do? You get two, of course, as is the case with the newly announced Samsung SCH-W2013. This is a flip phone with a regular numeric keypad, but it also has a pair of 3.7-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen displays.
The Samsung Galaxy S III Mini was announced last month, but Samsung didn’t make it clear whether the smaller cousin of the full-size S3 would be made available for the US market. That answer has now been provided courtesy of Amazon
Putting together past rumors, we hear the phone will have a 1080p 4.99-inch display, a 13MP shooter and will be shown off either at MWC or even at CES. It is also believed the the S4 has a pentile display. What else do we think we know? An Exynos 5450 chipset is expected to come to the Galaxy S4, which means that there would be four Cortex-A15 2GHz cores.
Looking for a deal on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2? Amazon is now offering the Note 2 for $50 cheaper than usual, with a two year commitment to AT&T.
Remember how you could get a free $25 credit toward the Google Play store when you bought a Google Nexus 7 tablet? Now, it’s even better if you decided to pick up a Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone, because you’ll be getting a free $50 Google Play credit to spend as you see fit.
A new rumor suggests that Samsung will be showing off a new 4.99-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at CES in January 2013. This is the same time that the company is expected to show off its new “global look”. So what is this new display going into? Connecting the dots, it seems possible it could be meant for the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Over at the XDA Developers forum, one member has already made progress towards a port of the Clockwork Recovery Mod for the Samsung Nexus 10. Rather quick work, considering the Nexus 10 was just released for ordering on November 13th.
November 13th saw the official release of the LG Nexus 4 and Samsung Nexus 10, at least for those lucky enough to actually order one before stock dried up. Within hours, almost every market was sold out of the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, but the United States still managed to keep enough Nexus 10 16GB models in stock it seems. Until today, that is.
Here’s a nice combo deal for anyone in the market for both a new tablet and a new HDTV, or even if you’re just shopping for a new television and would like an added bonus.

Apple’s beloved iPhone 4s has been dethroned as the top selling smartphone of Q3 2012, if the latest statistics coming from Strategy Analytics is to be believed.

Want to get the Samsung Galaxy S3 on the cheap? Now is your chance. It seems that Sam’s Club is offering the Galaxy S3 for just 96 cents on Black Friday.

Well, it turns out that the original Note has been quite the resounding success and Samsung followed up with the Note II. But what’s different between the two? How much of an upgrade is it?
There is clearly a growing demand for larger-sized smartphones, as evidenced by the run-away success of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2.
The Nexus 10 was originally announced to only sport 16GB and 32GB storage sizes with no way to expand beyond that. While this might be good enough for some consumers, what if you want and need more? The good news is that your wish might be coming true. Apparently a Korean press release on Samsung’s website also mentioned a 64GB version of the new Samsung Nexus 10. Since then, the image showing the 64GB model has been edited to remove its mention.
The new LG Nexus 4 has arrived, and with it comes a question about whether or not the new Nexus upstages the previous flagship device that is the Samsung Galaxy S3.
When it comes to 10-inch tablets, most consumers certainly think of iPad as the most powerful option out there. Sure, there are other high-end 10-inch tablets that are running on Android or Windows 8/RT, but they don’t have the display power of the Retina and probably aren’t as cutting-edge in processing and graphics as the newest 4th generation Apple iPad. This dynamic is now crashing down thanks to the newly announced Samsung Nexus 10.
While Apple might have given us a new iPad 4th gen recently, it is no longer the king of displays. Today Google announced the Samsung Nexus 10 with an extremely impressive 2560 x 1600 display.
The idea of foldable and flexible smartphone screen from Samsung is nothing new. We’ve been hearing rumors about the technology for a while, though we’ve yet to see an actual product utilizing the technology. This might be changing beginning next year with the introduction of the Samsung GT-B9150.
There aren’t a ton of 1080p smartphones out there yet, but we do have the HTC J Butterfly and the upcoming Chinese-market Oppo Find 5. Hoping for more devices that support true HD in the near future? Your wish is about to be granted.
Many school systems across the globe have made switches to tablets and e-readers. Having a digital solution like this means kids don’t have to carry heavy backpacks full of books, which can lead to back issues in the long run. It also can save the educational system money since the e-books are generally cheaper than text copies, of course you also have to pay the huge cost of the tablet/e-reader initially.
Are you in the market for a new Android tablet and want to find the best deal possible? The 7-inch version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 just happens to be on sale for $50 off, bringing the price down to a mere $199.00.
