Details on three new Samsung tablets leak – including the 13.3″ ‘Warhol’

Samsung is about to follow into the footsteps of Toshiba, launching a 13.3″ tablet, at least according to a leak from GSMArena. The leak centres on a spreadsheet, which details three upcoming tablets including two SuperAMOLED based devices and the behemothly large 13.3″ ‘Warhol’. GSMArena advise that the three tablets will come in 3G and Wifi variants, and while they’ll have different screen sizes, ranging from 8.4″, through 10.5″ up to 13.3″, they will all have WQXGA (2560×1600) resolution. GSMArena posit that the 10.5″ T801/T800 ‘Chagall’, will be known as the Galaxy Tab S, but there will also be the[Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy Tab S images leaked to SamMobile

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...]

Samsung to include fingerprint sensors in upcoming tablets: Report

Samsung to include fingerprint sensors in upcoming tablets: Report

Samsung is reportedly planning to include fingerprint sensors in new versions of its tablets, including a new tablet in the Galaxy Tab range, dubbed the Galaxy Tab S. Samsung fan-site SamMobile is reporting that the Tab S will include a 2,560 x 1,600 WQXGA display, but unlike existing tablets with these displays which are LCDs, this new Tab S will feature an AMOLED display instead. This should lead to deeper blacks, brighter and more vibrant colours, and a better viewing experience over all. As with the Galaxy S 5, the fingerprint scanner is rumoured to be embedded in the tablet’s home[Read More...]

Samsung launches the Galaxy K Zoom, its latest smartphone/camera hybrid

Samsung has just taken the wraps off the new Galaxy K Zoom camera-smartphone hybrid at its “Kapture the Moment” event in Singapore. Like the Galaxy S4 Zoom before it, the new device features a 10x optical zoom lens on the front delivering visuals to a 20.7MP backside-illuminated CMOS sensor with Optical Image Stabilisation, surrounded by a stippled/perforated case that echoes the Galaxy S5 rear. There’s also a Xenon flash for proper flash photography. Flip it over, and you’ll find a decidedly more standard-looking Samsung phone face – a 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED display framed with Samsung’s usual speakers, home button[Read More...]

Rumour: Samsung Galaxy S5 ‘Prime’ with quadHD display launching in June

The phone which could be one of[Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy Beam 2 released in China

Samsung Galaxy Beam 2 released in China

It was just last month we saw the first hints of a successor to the Galaxy Beam, and now the followup has now launched in China . The Samsung Galaxy Beam 2 includes a ‘built-in professional-level mini-projector’, which Samsung has listed as supporting only WVGA (480×800) resolution. The projector is an update from the original Galaxy Beam which supported only an nHD (640×360) projector. How many lumens the projector will support isn’t listed unfortunately, but the previous model was quite low power and needed a fairly dark environment to have much of an effect. Apart from the projector the Galaxy[Read More...]

Samsung Galaxy K (Galaxy S5 Zoom) pictured

The Galaxy S5 Zoom is now being called the Samsung Galaxy K, or at least it will be when it launches on the 29th of April at an event in Singapore. The phone-camera or camera-phone whichever way you look at it, has appeared in leaks in the past, but it’s been shown off again overnight. Unfortunately there’s no rear shots, but that zoom lens is going to be the main focus of interest for most people. As you can see it looks pretty well designed, with the Zoom fairly prominent and bulging out the front of the phone, but it[Read More...]
