Samsung posts pretty comprehensive hands-on videos of the Galaxy S5, Gear 2 and Gear Fit

The Galaxy S5 and the companion wearable – Gear line of products is popular, very much so, and with over a month between announcement and launch of the products, Samsung is doing their level best to keep them in the forefront of the public’s eye and has released a couple of fairly comprehensive ‘Official hands-on’ videos for both the phone and the Gear 2 and Gear Fit (why no love for the Neo?).

Samsung Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit Australian pricing leaked

The Samsung Galaxy Gear got a fairly tepid response from its release last year, but this year at Mobile World Congress, Samsung’s new line of Gear devices have received a much warmer welcome and there’s keen interest in where, when and how much they’ll be at launch. While we don’t have dates, we do have pricing and have been advised that they’ll be launching at one phone retailer soon. The pricing we’ve been given is apparently correct and should be in line with RRP around other stores when they announce their pricing. The Gear 2 will cost $370, the camera-less,[Read More...]

Samsung’s Knox product may not be particularly well known outside enterprise IT circles, but the product is now just one year old, and received a major update at the recent Mobile World Congress.

Samsung Chromebook 2 to arrive in April with Exynos 5 Octa processor

Samsung Chromebook 2 to arrive in April with Exynos 5 Octa processor

While the stitched faux leather back is still a sticking point for some, the Samsung Chromebook 2 launch is still pretty hotly anticipated, with rumours from last year pointing at a higher end spec coming to the Chromebook series. UberGizmo has apparently received details on the Chromebook 2 and published a post prematurely – and then pulled it – which sheds some further light on the specs for the Samsung Chromebook 2, which do in fact show a at least one model coming with a higher end screen. From the pre-order leak from BHPhotoVideo we know there will be two[Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 series listed on Gear Fit micro-site

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 series listed on Gear Fit micro-site

When Samsung announced the Gear Fit at Mobile World Congress, they advised it would be compatible with at least 20 Galaxy devices and most assumed they were devices already in the Samsung range, but it appears that at least three of those are the yet to be announced Galaxy Tab 4 series. As seen above the site lists the Galaxy Tab4 in three screen sizes : 10.1″, 8.0″ and 7.0″, matching the Galaxy Tab3 screen sizes. There’s no other information to go on at this stage, so we’ll have to wait for an official announcement. The Galaxy Tab3 range was[Read More...]

No pricing yet, but Kogan is now taking names for Samsung Galaxy S5 deals

While retail availability for the Samsung Galaxy S5 is still more than a month away, Kogan has finally acknowledged the existence of the latest Samsung phone. Kogan has begun taking names of customers interested in hearing about deals for the phone, with promises that those who do will receive ‘receive early bird deals from Kogan.’ The move to merely taking names of people interested in the phone, mirrors Dick Smith and Australian carriers who have all opened up webpages for people to register their interest.

Faux Leather backed Samsung Chromebook 2 shown off by @evleaks

Faux Leather backed Samsung Chromebook 2 shown off by @evleaks

The stitched faux leather back from the Galaxy Note 3 is definitely not dead, with EvLeaks over-night showing a much better view of the Samsung Chrome device he leaked yesterday, which confirms – as far as Evan Blass is concerned – that it is indeed a Chromebook and the recently leaked Chromebook 2. The picture shows off a thin, countoured base with the uniquely Samsung stitched faux leather lid, giving it the appearance of a folio or similar. There’s litte to glean in specs from this photo except for the presence of a USB port as well as a port[Read More...]
