With the onset of a new year, it’s time to focus on upcoming smartphones and tablets OEMs are working on. While Samsung has been making waves with the Galaxy S 6, the company is also working a series of new tablets. Specifically the Galaxy Tab A and Tab A Plus. Today, we have information about the possible specs regarding these new tablets and from what we’re seeing they’ll be mid-range devices.

Never got around to purchasing a Google Play edition device? Then it is likely safe to say you never will. Slowly but surely, we have seen Google Play edition devices vanish online. A warning was never issued by Google and the company has proceeded to pull the devices from the Play Store. Most recently, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Play edition was removed after months of being out of stock. Then, today, the HTC One (M8) Google Play edition was shown the door. It left the Google Play edition section with nothing to show; therefore, the initiative that pushed a stock Android experience on flagship devices is presumably gone.
