It looks like the Galaxy S 5 with a eye popping 2560×1440 display will be exclusive to Korean carriers. Three versions of the Samsung device with the model number SM-G906 appeared and belong to SK Telecom (SM-G906S), KT (SM-G906K), and LG Uplus (SM-G906L). In addition to a gorgeous display, it will have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 processor because it allows for displays with such resolutions to be managed. The interesting thing is that this LTE-A handset listed Android 4.4.3 as its operating system, a version not yet released or even announced.

Here’s the first good look at the upcoming AMOLED Samsung Galaxy Tab S

Samsung_Galaxy_Tab_S_Leak_01

We already gave you the juicy details of the upcoming Galaxy Tab S, which will be Samsung’s first AMOLED tablet since the Galaxy Tab 7.7 from a few years ago. Now it’s time to get a good look at the device. These images are from the 10.5-inch version, and unfortunately there really isn’t anything major here. Samsung’s devices always look the same and the Tab S is no exception. However, you will notice an updated back that resembles the Galaxy S 5 band-aid look, I mean dimpled look. This is the first time we are seeing it on a tablet. You will also see that “wonderful” Magazine UX that is on the Galaxy TabPRO series and Galaxy NotePRO.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Tab S will be a beast. It will sport a 2560 x 1600 AMOLED display, and octa-core Exynos 5420 CPU which consists of four 1.9 GHz Cortex-A15 cores and four 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 cores, 8MP rear camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, IR blaster, and Android 4.4. One more pic revealing the back of the device after the break.

Samsung attorney says Apple will get nothing in patent wars, sees end coming soon

Apple Android 2

Samsung attorney John Quinn had some sharp words for Apple in a recent interview after the latest round in the Apple v Samsung patent wars ended in a California courtroom. Apple managed to prevail in the case, obtaining a ruling in their favor in the amount of $119.6 million after it was determined Samsung had infringed on three of five patents that were the focus of the case. However, that was a far cry from the $2.2 billion in damages Apple sought, prompting many to conclude Samsung had effectively won this round. Quinn went on to say that Apple will never receive any money from this latest litigation once appeals are exhausted. He also predicted the last case that yielded Apple a $930 million judgement will eventually be resolved with little to no money actually paid. According to Quinn “They (Apple) have nothing to show for the hundreds of millions of dollars they’ve spent” and “years into Apple’s holy war on Android, they haven’t collected a nickel.” » Read the rest

Copper Gold variant of Samsung Galaxy S 5 coming to Verizon

by Aditya Thawardas on
tagged , , ,

Gold-galaxy-s5When Samsung initially unveiled the Galaxy S 5 back in February, they said that the device would be coming in Shimmery White, Charcoal Black, Electric Blue and Copper Gold. Until now, we’ve only seen the device in black and white here in the States, but that Copper Gold color is on the way. According to sources, the gold variant will be a Verizon exclusive.

There isn’t any pricing or availability information just yet, but Verizon usually sells the S5 at $199.99 with a two-year commitment. That color looks awfully bandaid-esque, doesn’t it?

samsung_kitkat_update_list

An internal document of Samsung devices that will be getting the Android 4.4 update has been leaked, showing some interesting choices. As can be seen by the image above, the list will feature the Galaxy SIII LTE, Galaxy S4 Mini, the Galaxy Grand 2, the Galaxy Mega 5.8, and the Galaxy Mega 6.3.

The list also confirms something which we hoped wouldn’t be the case – due to “unresolved problems” the international Galaxy SIII will not be getting the Android 4.4 KitKat update. This is likely due to issues implementing TouchWiz applications.
