Samsung’s new 128GB eMMC 5.0 storage targets the lower end

As repeatedly mentioned before, with the push for higher displays and CPUs on smartphones slowing down just a wee bit, attention is now being given to the last part of the system to catch up: storage. We are entering a period of not just faster flash memory for mobile devices but also growing densities. Samsung is now trying to pull up even those on lower rungs of the device tier by bringing out the highest density 128 GB eMMC 5.0 storage squarely marketed for mid-range devices.

Samsung quietly unveils Galaxy Tab A in Russia

Samsung quietly unveils Galaxy Tab A in Russia

Samsung has announced a new line of tablets in Russia, without much fuss or fanfare and not even an official PR statement. It's almost as if it were ashamed to let it be known that it has a new family of Android tablets, and maybe it's for good reason. Like their Galaxy A smartphone namesakes, these two Galaxy Tab A tablets are pretty much mid-range mobile devices seemingly designed for a specific use case in mind. But, unlike those smartphones, these tablets are still completely plastic.

BlackBerry announces SecuTablet, a modified Galaxy Tab S

BlackBerry has just revealed a new tablet, but don't worry, it's not a follow-up to the flop that was the company's PlayBook.

The device is a result of BlackBerry's purchase of security firm Secusmart last year, as well as a software partnership with IBM. The SecuTablet is part of BlackBerry's attempts to find success in targeting the corporate and government security sectors.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active specs leak

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active specs leak

One of the things that some Samsung Galaxy smartphone users want on their device is a waterproof body and ruggedized designed.

Samsung gets back into the rugged business with Xcover 3

After more than two years, Samsung is finally giving its Xcover line a chance in the market again. Now at its third generation, the line whose name is evokes images of toughness and protection, the smartphone gets up to date with the latest in industrial-friendly features. But if you expect the formidable sounding Xcover 3 would be Samsung's premiere rugged smartphone, you'd be greatly mistaken.

Samsung Galaxy S6 topples Galaxy Note 4 as OLED king

With Samsung's latest flagship fully unveiled and, if rumors are true, out in the market next month, it's time to compare and contrast its features with current and past smartphones. Naturally, DisplayMate is pouncing on the opportunity to test out the Galaxy S6's, as well as the Galaxy S6 edge's, screens to rank it against Samsung's own Galaxy Note 4 and, of course, the iPhone 6. Perhaps it isn't surprising that DisplayMate would conclude that the Galaxy S6 so far has the best OLED display in the market, but it isn't just because of the pixels.

Carrier pre-order for Galaxy S6, S6 edge claimed to be 20M

Carrier pre-order for Galaxy S6, S6 edge claimed to be 20M

Samsung is unofficially making some rather bold claims that could perhaps leave some eyebrows raised. While there is little to deny that its new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones are quite the hit over at MWC 2015, that hype has yet to be turned into actual sales and profits. Now, however, an anonymous Samsung exec claims that as early as now, the two have garnered a total of 20 million pre-orders from mobile carriers worldwide. If accurate, that is definitely an impressive, record breaking feat for the beleaguered company.
