Samsung teases Android Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4

Samsung has finally spoken up about Android 5.0. Or rather, in this case, it's more like a whisper. But we'll take anything over the silence it has been observing for almost a week now. Over at its Twitter account, the Korean OEM is actually advertising the Galaxy Note 4's QHD Super AMOLED display, but it is using a screen filled with bright colored candy of the lollipop kind. It is effectively hinting that Android Lollipop will be coming soon. As to when, we still don't know.

Samsung unveils Exynos 7 Octa, 20nm 64-bit Cortex-A57/A53

Samsung has an announcement, but unfortunately it isn't related to the rain of lollipops over the Internet. Or rather, it can be taken as indirectly related to Android 5.0 Lollipop too. The Korean electronics giant has just announced the newest member of its Exynos SoC family with a substantial jump in model number. The Exynos 7 Octa, with four Cortex-A57 and four Cortex-A53 cores, is one of the very few to be made using a 20 nm process. Curiously, Samsung isn't even mentioning the fact that this is a 64-bit chip.

Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition with Lollipop release imminent

While we did, honestly, expect the Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition to be launched several months ago at this point, it would seem that they’re finally ready to roll.

Nexus 6 details and a DROID for Verizon

Nexus 6 details and a DROID for Verizon

This morning we dug into the FCC documents for Motorola’s next big release. Really big, as it were - a full 6-inches of display to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus. We’ve heard rumors that Google would pick up Motorola’s next big release as a "Nexus 6", working with 6-inches of display. We’ve also heard that Verizon would be getting the device on their carrier. What we hadn’t heard so far - but what we can basically (nearly) confirm without Motorola saying so is that Verizon’s model will be the same, but with DROID branding.
