We already know Samsung is working on a new 8-inch Galaxy Tab 4 tablet device thanks to a GFXBench entry that was discovered last month. While the chip used is the mid-tier Snapdragon 410, that is a 64-bit chip meaning the device can fully support Android Lollipop. Based on a new FCC filing for the device, the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 should be headed to U.S. markets.
Samsung has just kicked off a new teaser campaign entitled “The Next Galaxy” with a Twitter post and video. The 17-second clip gives very little away about the device in question. In fact, it doesn’t show anything at all. The movie is simply intended to get us all excited for its upcoming flagship smartphone, and, we have to say, its succeeded. We can’t wait to see what the South Korean company comes up with.
Anyway, if you want to see the teaser video, hit the break below.
Hot on the heels of the Exynos variants, Samsung has today started pushing out the much-anticipated Lollipop update to all Snapdragon-powered models of the Galaxy Note 3 (LTE) and Galaxy Note 4 located in Germany. In terms of added functionality, this upgrade brings the latest build of the Android operating system, together with a multitude of bug fixes and stability improvements.
Hit the break for the full changelog.
According to a new report published online earlier today, Samsung is busy designing a second-generation Galaxy Tab S. There’s allegedly two new variants on the way — the SM-T710 and the SM-T810. The devices are expected to be revamped 8.4- and 10.5-inch models of the current slates, so it looks like we’re not going to be seeing at any major changes.
If you own a Samsung device and reside in Malaysia, Taiwan, Singapore, the Philippines, or New Zealand, you’ll soon have the ability to chat live with a Samsung representative at all hours of the day, any day, for support on your Samsung products.
The app, Galaxy Life, will soon be receiving an update that allows for this 24×7 live chat support. Also mentioned is that there will be a gold tier service for owners of flagship devices, but what services are rendered in that tier have not been disclosed.
The Galaxy Life app currently offers many deals and vouchers for residents of those five countries, including rewards to restaurants and theatres.
No word on when or if we may see this customer service feature expanded to other global markets.

When the Galaxy S 6 is unveiled at MWC 2015 in a few weeks, the software behind the handset will be very different than any Samsung device before in history. Practically every Samsung device released to date has been filled with pre-installed apps from both the company itself or third-party providers. The company is known for its inclusion of ‘everything but the kitchen sink.’ The Galaxy S 6, though, will change that.
Samsung has today begun pushing out the much-anticipated Lollipop update to all unlocked models of its flagship phablet, the Note 4, located in South Korea.
What could be more inviting than the standard Galaxy Note Edge? One plated in 24K gold, of course. Earlier today, a bunch of pictures appeared online showcasing the design of the Vietnam-exclusive handset, which has had its side frame, earpiece grill, volume rocker, and rear camera ring coated in gold.
Hit the break for the full gallery of photos.
The Galaxy S 6 and Galaxy S 6 Edge will be unveiled on March 1 at Mobile World Congress, but when will you be able to buy one? Phone Arena has received a tip from a Samsung employee that says that a vacation blackout period has been set for March 22 through March 30.
Of course we don’t know for sure, but it’s likely that the Galaxy S 6 and the Galaxy S 6 Edge will be released during that period.
According to a new report from multiple sources, the Samsung Galaxy S6 smartphone will feature the wireless charging feature out of the box. In previous Galaxy flagships, wireless charging was only included with the help of an additional case. But things could be different this year.
