Samsung to focus on price competitiveness with less smartphone models in 2015

Samsung has some of the most popular smartphones on the market today, but the company wants to focus on being more price competitive in the future.

Samsung Proximity brings beacons beyond iPhone

Before today, Samsung had been relatively mum on the subject of "beacons." Apple started talking about their program - "iBeacon" - some time ago. We saw a Qualcomm Gimbal-made system for Apple Store in action back in February - ready to roll.

Galaxy S6 Rebirth: details are the devil for Samsung

With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in Germany comes proof that Samsung needs to do something BRAND NEW with their Galaxy S lineup.
