Samsung has announced a new Chef Collection series item that brings the cutting-edge technology of their popular smartphone devices to the cutting-edge technology of kitchen devices. The Samsung Galaxy BLADE edge is the first smart knife that also has smartphone capabilities. The Galaxy BLADE edge comes with all of the features of the Galaxy S6, but in a chef’s knife form factor. Samsung capitalizes on the strength of the new Gorilla Glass 4 that we have seen survive some serious impact to bring this new device to market which will see thousands of impacts on the cutting board.

OnePlus is supposed to announce a new device this April and it’s supposed to be a game changer. Last week during a Reddit AMA, OnePlus’ Carl Pei came out and said they will announce the DR-1 Drone. Now assuming that it is indeed a drone, why would he tell the world that it is?
Much has been said about Samsung’s software over the years. People have complained about TouchWiz yet plenty of consumers continue to buy the company’s devices. TouchWiz has certainly matured and evolved, looking the best it ever has. However, it could have looked even better. Designer Gerald Mark Soto, who claims to have worked with Samsung, posted two videos exposing an unreleased version of TouchWiz. Everything about the software is sharp with flowing animations.
The software seen in the videos is the same captured in photographs that leaked prior to the launch of the Galaxy S5. So perhaps the overhauled version of TouchWiz that leaked last year was being considered for the Galaxy S6 (and did not make the cut).
Hit the break for the videos.
T-Mobile launched pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge last Friday, but you couldn’t order the Gold Platinum version, only Black Sapphire or White Pearl.
As of this morning, you can now pre-order the Gold Platinum version in either 32, 64, or 128 GB. Unfortunately your order won’t ship right away since they won’t receive stock until closer to April 10. Don’t forget, you still get 1 year of Netflix for free with any Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge pre-order from T-Mobile.

Another retailer, this one online, has started to accept pre-orders for three of the year’s hottest devices. Right now, you can pre-order the HTC One M9 (review here), Samsung Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge through Amazon. The online retailer has various storage and color options when it comes to the carrier variants of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. For the One M9, Amazon has limited the selection to Gold on Silver and Gunmetal Grey all with 32GB of internal storage. The only carrier without its variants listed by Amazon is T-Mobile.

The Snapdragon 810 chipset has been plagued by overheating issues as we all know. While LG denied these reports after using the chip on the G Flex 2 handset, HTC’s One M9 was seen to be getting overheating warnings while on demonstration during the MWC event, so this is a known issue. Read more
According to a new report, Samsung is looking to amp up production of the flexible display panels in time for the launch of the Galaxy S7 next year. Read more
The HTC One M9 was announced a few weeks ago on March the 1st, and since then it’s been polarizing opinions. Some say it’s just a rehashed M8 while others claim it is the result of a great design that has been refined to perfection. If you are in the UK, you can now order the HTC One M9 directly from the HTC website.
The Nvidia Shield Portable has been around for a quite a while now, so it should come as no real surprise to learn that Nvidia is planning to release a new version of the device with updated hardware and firmware.
It appears that Samsung is about to have a dominating Galaxy S6 launch. We still don’t know exact pre-order numbers, but there have been several reports that Samsung upped production to meet demand.
Now it appears Samsung is delivering Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge phones to the U.S. via 747s to ensure that supply meets demand. This might be new for Samsung, but we have seen this before from Apple with previous launches.
