Earlier today the Wall Street Journal reported that according to JK Shin, the Galaxy S 5 is doing quite well. Samsung has sold 11 million units to date. However, that bigger news might be the fact that the Galaxy Tab S could be announced next month.

At the very end of the article, it was reported that Samsung is “planning to launch a new line of tablets for the first time in New York on June 12 at Madison Square Garden.” Madison Square Garden does seem like an interesting location since it holds nearly 20,000 people.

When Samsung released the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 last year, one of the new design cues was the faux leather and stitching treatment for the back cover. We have since seen that same design extended to other devices. Samsung has now released an accessory, at least in India, that uses this same faux leather look. A new external battery pack available from Samsung’s online store for India uses the faux leather to go with a couple other nice enhancements. » Read the rest

Samsung’s ‘Glass Gear’ could be unveiled in September, run Tizen

Samsung has always been known to have its presence felt in many categories. One that it has yet to enter is smart glasses. Right now, there are really no standouts until Google finally releases the consumer version of Glass. Everyone isn’t just going to sit and wait. It looks like Samsung’s could be announced later this year.

Like we previously heard, it sounds like the wearable will be announced at IFA 2014 in September. This is the same event that Samsung used to announce the Galaxy Note 3. The device would be known as Samsung Glass Gear and it would not run Android Wear. Instead, Samsung would be putting Tizen to work. This should be of no surprise as Samsung’s Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit also run Tizen.

A new product page for a Samsung smartphone we haven’t heard of yet has appeared on the Prime.com.hk shopping website, even providing some specs for the device. While the device is not official yet, it certainly wouldn’t be unexpected for Samsung to launch such a device.

In fact, a Galaxy S4 LTE-A device was launched last year. LTE-A referes to devices that can run on an LTE-Advanced network, which is currently available in some parts of the world, but not yet in the US.

With Samsung working hard at having tablets with as many screen sizes as possible we’re bound to see some on the larger end of the spectrum. Today we’re seeing a leak that suggests that Samsung will be debuting a 13.3-inch tablet. The screen will be of a LCD type in nature sporting a WQXGA resolution of 2,560×1,600 resolution.
