Looking over at Telstra’s website recently, it seems Telstra has added the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 to its line up of pre-paid devices. Design wise, the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 is quite similar to the Samsung Galaxy S3, although spec wise, the phone has is quite a step down.

Samsung schedules ‘Tab into Color’ Galaxy Tab event for June 12th in New York

Samsung schedules ‘Tab into Color’ Galaxy Tab event for June 12th in New York

It’s been six months since Samsung unveiled their Galaxy TabPRO and NotePRO tablets at CES, and the usual six month product cycle for phones and tablets decress we’re due some new tablet. The time frame makes this invitation from Samsung to attend an event in New York labelled ‘Tab into Color’ not too surprising.

Galaxy S5 Active Support Page: Placeholder found

The Galaxy S5 Active is coming, at least if you’re to believe the rumours, leaks and now the fact that there are placeholders for the SM-G850F model on a number of countries’ pages inside the Samsung domain. Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland have already got placeholders that have been found, and there’s likely more out there that are yet to be located. Much like its predecessor, the Galaxy S4 Active, the S5 Active is expected to have near identical specs to its flagship brother, the Galaxy S5. The “claim to fame” for the S4 Active was the water- and dust-proof[Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy S5 to receive an update to fix fingerprint scanner and camera performance

Samsung Galaxy S5 to receive an update to fix fingerprint scanner and camera performance

Samsung is releasing an update to the international version of the Galaxy S5 handset to improve the recognition of integrated fingerprint scanner and to speed up the camera performance. We noted when we reviewed the S5 (as did many other reviewers) that the fingerprint scanner was woefully inaccurate, and often required repeated attempts to get it to recognise a registered print, in contrast to a decent implementation in the iPhone 5S. If Samsung have found a way — in software — to fix this, then that’s great news for those of us who are security conscious but want an easy[Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy Tab S images leaked to SamMobile

We’ve heard a little about the Samsung Galaxy Tab S before, but not much. Those rumours have now jumped a fair way ahead, with leaked images of the tablet appearing on SamMobile overnight. Where two tablet sizes have been discussed, the images are of a 10.5″ model, and it shares a number of design elements with the new Galaxy S5. The leaked Galaxy Tab S images show that the rear of the tablet has the same dimpled plastic effect as the Galaxy S5, and on the front it looks like the same phone but a good few inches wider, featuring[Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini to emerge as the Galaxy S5 Dx

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini to emerge as the Galaxy S5 Dx

The Galaxy S5 has been on the market since last month, yet we know that there will eventually be a Galaxy S5 Mini. But after the Galaxy S5 Zoom was renamed to the Galaxy K Zoom, the chances of it being named something quite different increased. The screenshot below, purportedly from the UK Samsung website, is now circulating the internet shows that this is the case, with the phone actually called the Galaxy S5 Dx. From the screenshot we can deduce a fair bit about the phone, it will come in the same colours as the full size Galaxy S5[Read More...]
