Bendigo Bank launches a retail point of sale mobile payment solution called ‘redy’

Bendigo Bank launches a retail point of sale mobile payment solution called ‘redy’

The Bendigo Bank has long been the upstart in the banking community, by aiming their services at communities who actually welcome them. They’ve done well by being big on small business, in a time when some of the larger financial institutions aren’t so interested, and they’ve just launched a retail point of sale mobile payment solution in partnership with Community Telco Australia (CTA), and Samsung Electronics Australia called ‘redy’. So what is redy? redy, is both the platform and app, which uses QR codes as opposed to NFC transactions that larger banks are seemingly aiming for, so iOS users as[Read More...]

Samsung unveils Galaxy Tab S tablet series – 8.4 and 10.5 inch devices, accessories in tow

Samsung unveils Galaxy Tab S tablet series – 8.4 and 10.5 inch devices, accessories in tow

At an event at Madison Square Garden in New York, Samsung launched their new tablet series, the Galaxy Tab S. The tablets will be available in 8.4- and 10.5-inch screen sizes with high resolution Super AMOLED 2560×1600 displays, a first for tablets. We’ve been impressed with Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays on phones in recent years, and it’s good to see the screen technology is making the leap to larger devices. The Galaxy Tab S devices are capable of 100,000:1 contrast ratio and are not only ultra bright but offer a true colour experience, with more than 90% of Adobe RGB[Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy F ‘Prime’ pictured next to a Galaxy S5

Samsung Galaxy F ‘Prime’ pictured next to a Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy F or Prime rumours have heated up again overnight with PhoneArena posting the above picture of what they’ve been tipped is the Galaxy F posing next to a now downmarket looking Galaxy S5. The phone looks to be physically about the same size as the current Galaxy flagship, but the rumoured specs of the Galaxy F could see it knock the Galaxy S series off the premium pedestal. The phone is rumoured to be launching later this year, possibly in September, with a 5.3″, QHD 2560×1440 resolution display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and[Read More...]

Samsung releases a video countdown to their GALAXY PREMIERE 2014 event

Samsung releases a video countdown to their GALAXY PREMIERE 2014 event

The Samsung Tab Into Color event, scheduled for the 12th of June at Madison Square Garden in New York is where we expect to see the Samsung Galaxy Tab S tablet series, which will feature high resolution AMOLED screens. It’s the bright coloured screens that Samsung is probably alluding to in their teaser video they’ve just released to their YouTube channel. It’s merely a teaser and doesn’t add a terrible amount to what we’ve already seen of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and 10.5, which includes renders and rumoured specs, and even a leaked manual. You can join the live[Read More...]

Samsung shows off their new Galaxy S5 commercial for Australia

Samsung shows off their new Galaxy S5 commercial for Australia

Samsung has released their new commercial for the Australian market onto their YouTube channel. Focusing heavily on features, the commercial starts by showing off the Gear 2 and Gear Fit wearables, and moves on to show the features of the Galaxy S5 like power saving and of course the newly introduced IP67 water resistance. The video mostly manages to avoid throwing shade at non-Samsung phones, and of course the young lady yelling out ‘My Phone!’ as it’s splashed isn’t definitely using an iPhone, but well, you can draw your own conclusion. It’s a decent commercial and should make for some[Read More...]

Is there a Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition in the works?

Is there a Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition in the works?

Today sees renewed rumourmongering and speculation about the possible existence of a Google Play Edition of Samsung‘s 2014 flagship phone, the Galaxy S5. The speculation all points back to TK Tech News, which claims its editor met with a Samsung “source” who showed them the phone. What we’ve actually got, as you can see above, appears to be a screenshot of an extremely blurry photo showing a Galaxy S5 with the simple black “Google” bootup screen commonly seen on Nexus and Google Play Edition devices. This could be easily faked – the phone could have just been showing a photo[Read More...]

Samsung “Galaxy F” images leaked online

Samsung “Galaxy F” images leaked online

The leaky sieve that is Samsung‘s upcoming release list has drip-fed us some new information again – this time, an image of the Samsung Galaxy F. The Galaxy F designation has been rumoured since January to be a “super premium” line of devices using metal construction and higher internal specifications than the company’s current flagbearer, the Galaxy S5. The image above – leaked online by evleaks – shows what appears to be a Galaxy S-inspired chassis with a brushed aluminium finish which looks great (in my opinion at least). We don’t really know much more about the product, but this[Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom now available from the Samsung Experience store

Samsung Galaxy K Zoom now available from the Samsung Experience store

Late in April, Samsung finally took the wraps of their newest Camera experience phone, unveiling the Samsung Galaxy K Zoom. The Galaxy K Zoom, is the spiritual successor to the Galaxy S4 Zoom, but Samsung has decided to forgo the co-branding that went with the earlier model. The phone has finally shown up in Australia, not on a carrier, or in one of the traditional retailers but in the Samsung Experience store in Sydney, where it’s selling for $699. If you’ve forgotten the phone is more camera than phone, and Samsung seems determined to make you remember that, which makes[Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini – photos and specs leaked

Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini – photos and specs leaked

Now that the Galaxy K Zoom and the Galaxy S5 Active are official, it’s the Galaxy S5 Mini’s turn to come out of hiding. If these latest leaks are anything to go by, then the miniature version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 might be worth waiting for. In comparison to the Galaxy S4, the Galaxy S4 mini was a low powered version of Samsung’s flagship. However the latest picture of the Galaxy S5 mini to leak may indicate that Samsung may be including a bit more into the device than expected. The Galaxy S5 Mini appears to closely resemble the[Read More...]

The Galaxy S Tab line has begun showing up in press render form, indicating that the event called ‘Tab into Color’ event which Samsung is holding in New York on the 12th of June is where we’ll officially see the tablets launched.
