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...]

Samsung Galaxy Mega 7 – aka the Galaxy Mega 2 shows up thanks to case maker

We get a fairly eclectic mix of phones down here in Australia. It’s hard to guess which lines, out of the multitude of models that Samsung release every year will eventually arrive on our shores, but one line which did arrive is the Galaxy Mega, and a render of the the second generation has shown up thanks to a case maker. The phone is apparently ensconced in an ‘IMAK Case’ with China Mobile branding on the back and shows off a familiar looking Samsung Galaxy design, with a screen with very little bezel. The phone is apparently coming with model[Read More...]
