New Samsung Galaxy Gear ad is all about impressing others, misses the point


Samsung has been rapidly releasing new advertisements this holiday season. In this lengthy new ad, titled “Are You Geared Up?”, Samsung is showing how well its Galaxy Gear smart watch can impress others. Specifically, how it can help score that lucky lady. A man whips out his Gear while riding a ski lift and the woman becomes infatuated with it. After that, the setting moves to a party. There, Samsung makes fun of itself and other smartphone manufacturers. One guy fumbles his smartphone while another simply handles it with his Gear. Why Samsung is laughing at its own massive smartphones, I am not too sure.

To watch the advertisement, hit the break. Read more

Samsung releases new Galaxy Note 3 video, showcases holiday spirit


Samsung just released a nice video called “Galaxy Note 3 – Holiday Reflections,” which surprisingly doesn’t call out competitors, tell jokes, showcase major features of the device, or any other conventional marketing tactics Samsung normally uses.

Instead, the video shows Galaxy Note 3’s in a “winter wonderland” of sorts, reflecting familiar holiday images on their screens. The video can also be watched in full HD 3D inside YouTube if you have any 3D devices.

Hit the break to check out the video in action.

The First Episode of the Galaxy 11 Campaign Debuts

Details emerge regarding Samsung’s four new tablets set to launch in early 2014


We have heard that Samsung will be launching four new tablets early next year, and now we have a little more information about them. The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite  (SM-T110/T111) will be the first to launch, and will probably be shown at CES. It will have a 7-inch display and will be available in Cream White. Next up is the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 (SM-T320/T325), Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 (SM-T520/T525), and Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 (SM-P900/P905) that will land in February. These tabs will be available in either black or white, and you can expect 16GB of storage for the Tab Pros, while the Note Pro gets 32GB. We are also expecting AMOLED displays on these three tablets.

We’re not sure if these are on top of the rumored 10.5-tablet that we heard about a couple of days ago, or if that tablet is actually the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 with misinformation regarding the display size.

Samsung SM-G900F specs confirmed, is it still a Galaxy S 5 candidate?


Last week a Samsung phone with the model number of SM-G900F showed up in Browsermark, but unfortunately no specs were available. Now it has showed up in AnTuTu revealing more about the phone. It has a 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974AC), Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 16MP rear camera, 2MP front shooter, and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Many thought this phone was a Galaxy S 5 candidate, but the fact that the display is 1080p has me thinking differently. Last week, when I saw this model, I was thinking it could be a F Series, but I am not even sure of that since I would expect the F Series to sport a higher resolution as well.
