Samsung is working on a second generation Galaxy Tab S


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.

Samsung working on 24×7 live chat support for customers


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.

Samsung Galaxy S 6 will feature noticeable software changes


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.

Galaxy Note Edge review: Super cool, but is it useful?


The Galaxy Note Edge was introduced alongside the Galaxy Note 4. It’s essentially the same exact phone except the right edge is curved and it serves as a secondary display. On the surface, it looks kind of cool, but when it comes to technology, cool stuff isn’t always useful or worth your money. If it cost the same as other flagship phones, it might be an easy decision, but at $399 on contract, this thing is either the next best thing or something to stay clear away from. Let’s find out which after the break.

Samsung’s Galaxy S 6 Edge screen will cover three sides of the device

Samsung_Galaxy_Note_Edge_Edge_Side_01_TAThe floodgates are really opening up about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S 6 and Galaxy S 6 Edge, which is to be expected with how close we are to an official announcement. The latest reports shed some light on just what Samsung will do with the Edge variant, and it looks like they’ll be taking the curved design of the Note Edge one step further by using a screen that covers three sides of the device, instead of just two as seen on the Note Edge.
