Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha is coming to JB Hi-Fi stores in October, $830 for 32GB

We’ve reported previously on Samsung‘s new metal-clad Galaxy Alpha phone, and we were previously advised that the phone will make it to Australia – but we weren’t told when that would be. Yesterday, Tech4Geeks‘ Jens Garcia sent us the above picture of the JB Hi-fi store at Westpoint shopping centre in the Sydney suburb of Blacktown – clearly they knew something we didn’t about the device’s release. We’ve also been tipped that JB will be selling the 32GB version of the Galaxy Alpha for AU $830, and that stock will start arriving in early October. There’s no word on pricing,[Read More...]

Well, that escalated quickly – Samsung trolls Apple (again) with new Galaxy Note 4 ads

Well, that escalated quickly – Samsung trolls Apple (again) with new Galaxy Note 4 ads

Samsung has of late been quite proactive at poking the lawyers bear with advertising that’s clearly aimed at Apple, the iPhone and users of ageing Apple devices. Their latest batch of adverts take a direct swipe at the new iPhone 6 before it’s even released to the public, taking aim at the apparent oversights and slow development of the iPhone rather than the stronger features of Samsung’s own devices. Much like the amusing comparisons between the iPhone 6 and 2-generation old Nexus phones, the adverts seek to convince the viewer that Samsung – the main name associated with “Android” by[Read More...]

NVidia mentions HTC made Nexus 9 in legal documents

NVidia mentions HTC made Nexus 9 in legal documents

Well, there’s always some lapse in secrecy surrounding the development of devices, this time it’s the Nexus 9 and it’s some legal documents which have spilled the beans. Earlier this month, chip-maker Nvidia, brought legal action agains competitors Samsung and Qualcomm, claiming they are using technology in their GPUs without paying royalties to NVidia. It’s in the documents for this case, that BrightSideOfNews found a reference to the Nexus 9, with NVidia outing the name, manufacturer and release window as well as confirming it will be powered by the Tegra K1. Nvidia references the Nexus 9 in the documents, stating[Read More...]

Samsung Gear Live receiving update OTA now – improves navigation and alarms

Samsung Gear Live receiving update OTA now – improves navigation and alarms

It’s not the big update that Google announced was coming for Android Wear yesterday, but the Samsung Gear Live is apparently receiving an OTA update at the moment which brings a couple of improvements to the current features. The update, which brings the build version of Android Wear up to KGW42N, is all about improvements to navigation and alarms. Android Police have done a deep dive into the update and found that the navigation improvements include options for alternate destinations, for example saying ‘Navigate to KMart’ it should automatically default to the nearest one, but offer options for ones nearby[Read More...]

Samsung’s VR headset given US pricing – still more than the cost of Google Cardboard

Samsung’s VR headset given US pricing – still more than the cost of Google Cardboard

Samsung had a number of announcements at IFA 2014, but the Gear VR headset seems to be quite a polarising product. Android, and Samsung fans either love it, or hate it. Either way, a Samsung spokesperson has let slip the pricing overnight, so you can start saving your pennies. While no release date was mentioned, a Samsung spokesperson has told VentureBeat, that the headset will cost US$199. This is obviously not counting the cost of the Galaxy Note 4 which the headset has been optimised for. The Gear VR, features hardware built by Samsung, but a software experience which is[Read More...]

Samsung Announce The Galaxy Tab Active

Samsung Announce The Galaxy Tab Active

Just when you thought Samsung could not possibly find yet another tablet variation to release they come out and prove you wrong. Just as they did with their phones Samsung at IFA 2014 have released a tablet version that is water and dust resistant, the Galaxy Tab Active. SamMobile, who often have the inside scoop on Samsung devices, describe the Galaxy Tab Active as coming with “mostly mid-range specs” although it seems a stretch to call them mid-range in my opinion. The specs include: 8in LCD Display, 1280 x 800 pixels Snapdragon 400 quad core CPU 1.5GB RAM 3.1MP rear[Read More...]
