The Galaxy Note Edge is heading to carriers in the United States this week. AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile are all going to release the unique Samsung device on November 14. Verizon, at some point in the near future, will join in doing so. So the Galaxy Note Edge will be found the nation’s four largest carriers. There is good news for customers with smaller carriers as well.
A Samsung device with the model number SM-N915R4 showed up at the FCC. This matches that of the Galaxy Note Edge and the ending “R4″ belongs to a specific carrier. Which one? It seems that US Cellular will be getting its own Galaxy Note Edge.

Samsung isn’t pulling any punches with marketing for their Gear S smartwatch. They’ve already posted up an “unofficial review” of the watch, and you can also check out a TV commercial that shows off how the watch will completely integrate into your lifestyle. It’s nothing flashy, but it demonstrates using the watch without having your phone on you all the time, which is really the stand-out feature here.
If you’re on the fence about whether or not you want to purchase Samsung’s Gear S, reading a few reviews might help sway you towards one side of the fence. To help make that buying decision a little easier, Samsung has posted their own unofficial review of the Gear S. It seems weird for a company to review their own product, and it’s certainly more than a little biased, but hey, at least it gives you a detailed look at the better points of the smartwatch.
Samsung recently formally announced the Galaxy A3 and A5 smartphones, but they’re currently slated for a relatively small Asian release with no concrete plans on bringing them to other markets around the world. Apparently, a big reason behind that is due to Samsung’s low yield on production of the unibody metal frames for the devices.
With these phones being among the first full metal Samsung devices with no removable batteries, production for components was a little different than what Samsung was used to. Reportedly only about 50% of the cases made it past Samsung’s quality control, which is a very, very low yield and explains the limited availability.
According to a report from Reuters, Samsung is looking to invest several billion dollars into building a smartphone manufacturing plant in Vietnam soon. The company already owns a $2 billion smartphone plant in the Thai Nguyen province, which is where the second, $3 billion plant will be built. Right now, that 3 billion number is just an estimate, as Samsung is still in talks with the Vietnamese government to make the plans official.
Last week, we were able to see what the Android Lollipop update will look like on the Galaxy S 4, but if you want a more detailed comparison with the current KitKat version, you’ve come to the right place. Sam Mobile put together a video detailing the differences as well as some screenshots.
The overall look of the UI will be the same, but the core apps will get updated with Material Design and a lot of the functionality gets improved. There are a notable amount of performance improvements as well.
We have a bunch of screenshots and the video after the break.
Do you Note? That’s the question of the latest in Samsung’s newest Note 4 commercials. One shows a man in dire need of a place to relieve himself. Another shows a “photo war” between two friends. It’s nice to see that Samsung has gone away from bashing the competition and highlighting the fun you can have with Samsung’s latest large screened phone. We have the commercials for you after the break. Enjoy.
At 2014′s IFA, Samsung chief executive BK Yoon said, “The biggest change, the biggest transformation, it will happen in our Homes, at a speed we can barely imagine.” Samsung wants to explain what they mean by that, and have released six new videos showing how Smart Home will make your life easier through their automation. The videos show how the company can make everything from powering your home appliances to watching movies a lot simplified.
You can check out all of the new videos past the break.

Earlier this week Samsung confirmed that the getting-long-in-the-tooth Galaxy S 4 would, in fact, receive Android 5.0 Lollipop. Of course we’re curious about how that will look on the device and today we get to see a sneak peek. Like the Galaxy S 5, SamMobile was able to score an internal build of Lollipop for an S 4 and as such, made a video for it.
Codenamed “Project Zero,” the Galaxy S 6 could have some radical changes in store. Speaking at the IHS Display Analyst Conference, senior analyst Jerry Kang said that the Galaxy S 6 will feature a dual-edge curved display. This means that both the right and left edges of the display will be curved, unlike the Galaxy Note Edge, which only features the right edge.
