Galaxy S6 to showcase new Samsung mobile payment system

Galaxy S6 to showcase new Samsung mobile payment system

As is always the case, Samsung's next flagship is portrayed with almost godlike powers and the Galaxy S6 is no different. Perhaps aside from the fact that it might not be running on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810. In addition to dual curved edges and a new "stationary" fingerprint sensor instead of a swipe-based one, now the smartphone is rumored to have one more special feature. If the information is accurate, the Galaxy S6 will be the first to bear Samsung's new mobile payment system, that is rumored not to rely on NFC.

Galaxy S6 Edge teased by Samsung

Galaxy S6 Edge teased by Samsung

On the first of March, 2015, we'll be in Barcelona to see Samsung's next big thing. In this case, it'll almost certainly be a Samsung Galaxy S6, but there could very well be more than that. There could be a follow-up to the surprise hit that was the Galaxy Note Edge. This week Samsung has teased what could possibly be the Samsung Galaxy Edge, the first in a line of curved-screen devices made smaller than the Note - perhaps even with more than one edge to fiddle with.

Samsung Galaxy S6 design leaks: smaller screen, taller body

Samsung Galaxy S6 design leaks: smaller screen, taller body

In just about a month, we will finally see what Samsung really has in store for its Galaxy S6 flagship. In the meantime, however, we will have to satiate ourselves with interesting but unofficial leaks. We've already heard of quite a number of rumors, some of them not so encouraging. For this round, we're taking a peek at the overall design of the smartphone, with a particular attention to the body and screen size. The good news is that, while somewhat taller, the Galaxy S6 might be more "handy" than its predecessor.

Samsung may finally be ditching TouchWiz

Samsung may finally be ditching TouchWiz

If you ask a Samsung fan, they might say TouchWiz is awesome. If you ask anyone else (the majority, as it were), TouchWiz is terrible, dated, and bloated. Samsung’s Android overlay is possibly the last true ‘skin’ produced by any Android OEM, and a new report once again suggests Samsung is ditching most of it. We’ve heard before that Samsung was moving away from TouchWiz, and their mysterious ‘Project Zero’ is still thought as the internal project to get them there, so we’re holding out hope it’s finally happening.

Sorry Samsung, Apple’s probably the smartphone king

Sorry Samsung, Apple’s probably the smartphone king

Apple's Q4 2014 may not only have been its best quarter ever for iPhone sales, but the point at which it overtook arch-rival Samsung in the smartphone business. The Cupertino firm announced a massive 74.5m iPhone sales in the final three months of last year, setting itself a new record and - according to at least one research firm - putting it on at least level-pegging with Samsung. The South Korean company has played coy with its Galaxy numbers, but it's clear that Apple's rapid ascent has dramatically closed (if not destroyed) the gap between the two.

Alphabet soup: Samsung unveils Galaxy J1 in Malaysia

Alphabet soup: Samsung unveils Galaxy J1 in Malaysia

It seems like Samsung might really be switching to a new naming scheme. Whether it's more confusing or less, it's up to you to decide. Following the metal-clad Galaxy A series and the Tizen-powered Z1 in India, Samsung is revealing the Galaxy J1, an entry-level smartphone that is being marketed at the Malaysian market. Judging by that number, instead of a single letter, it is probably just the first of many J's that will flood the market with low-end specs, replacing Samsung's name-based catalog.

Samsung’s Q4 earnings report shows company down but not out

Samsung’s Q4 earnings report shows company down but not out

Many companies have dropped their latest earnings report today, and included among them is Samsung. The Korean company saw profits of 5.35 trillion won/$4.9 billion in its fourth quarter (ending December 31), an unfortunate decrease from the previous year of 27-percent. The results aren't all that surprising given the company's struggles in the recent past, but there was a glimmer of light through it all: the quarter's revenue was on the upswing with an 11-percent quarter-on-quarter increase to 52.73 trillion won.

Qualcomm admits “large customer” loss amid Samsung speculation

Qualcomm admits “large customer” loss amid Samsung speculation

They're not naming names, but we can pretty much read between the lines. In its Q1 2015 fiscal report, chip maker Qualcomm is lowering its revenue outlook for the second half of this fiscal year due to a number of huge factors. Aside from a shift in share among OEMs and higthened competition in China, where is actually facing some legal battles, Qualcomm also mentions the loss of a "large customer" of its Snapdragon 810. Given how things are going, it's hard not to believe that it is referring to Samsung.

Galaxy S6 case sparks interest, but it’s probably nonsense

Galaxy S6 case sparks interest, but it’s probably nonsense

At MWC this year, we’re likely going to get our hands on the Galaxy S6 from Samsung. While rumors have been circulating about the new flagship from Samsung, we’ve not seen much that gives us a hint at anything official. A case has been spotted on amazon, which points to some aesthetic changes Samsung could be making. Most notably, the rear camera ensemble is changed, with the flash sitting to the side of the camera, not underneath like the Galaxy S5. Still, something is really off, here. Can this listing be trusted?
