Samsung continues to enjoy tremendous success with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, but things will change dramatically when Apple announces the iPhone 6s in the fall. Samsung usually announces their newest edition of the Note line in early September when IFA takes place, but they might change it up this year in order to get bigger head start.
According to the latest report, they will announce the new Galaxy Note 5 by the end of July, which is just a little over a month earlier than normal. If everything goes according to plan, they will have a completed prototype by the middle of June. Supposedly they have confirmed the final specifications to global carriers with the instruction to take pre-orders before the end of July.
Although it may be a while still before they show up in carrier portfolios, Samsung has officially launched the two latest colors for its duo of Galaxy S6 smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is now available in Blue Topaz while the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge now comes in Green Emerald. Read more

Samsung released four videos featuring Snapchat superstar Shonduras in order to showcase the power of the Galaxy S6 Edge. Why? Because the device with curved displays will let people “draw razor-sharp lines.” That’s perfect for Snapchat users that want to make their snaps into masterpieces like Shonduras. So the four videos are part of an Edge-ucational series that lasts nearly eight minutes.
Hit the break for the videos.
In aid of a new promotion, Samsung and Marvel have teamed up to launch a series of Avengers themed products for the Galaxy S6, which include a series of accessories, themes and an Iron Man edition of the S6 Edge.
If you happened to see Avengers: Age of Ultron, then you may have noticed that Samsung has a pretty strong presence in the movie from phones to tablets. This is obviously part of a big marketing program that will include accessories for both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. You can already find Avengers themes in the Samsung Themes store.
According to a new report, Samsung is exploring the possibilities of launching yet another Edge-branded smartphone ahead of the Note 5 Edge’s debut in September.

Another device’s stay in the Google Store has come to an end. The Samsung Gear Live, which launched last year at I/O alongside the LG G Watch, is longer available through the Google Store. The slot next to other Android Wear smartwatches has been removed and the product page confrims that the Gear Live is “no longer available for purchase” next to a dormant NOT AVAILABLE button.
