Leaked email hints at Samsung’s Lollipop upgrade plan

Most Android users don’t have a Nexus device, and Motorola is still not a preeminent OEM. That means most people don’t see Android updates when they’re launched, and have to wait a period of time before the manufacturer of their phone (and possibly carrier) get it together and update their handset. Plenty of reasons for the delay exist, and Google would rather we have their newest Android quickly, but most are left wanting. A leaked email suggests Samsung is priming their Experience Shop associates for Lollipop to hit in January.

Samsung’s ready for the 4GB smartphone in 2015

Samsung has struck up production of 4GB mobile memory, paving the way for smartphones and tablets with more working memory than ever in 2015. The chips, which Samsung Electronics claims are an industry-first of 8 gigabit (Gb), low power, double data rate 4 (LPDDR4) mobile DRAM, are built on 20nm processes, and have not only the benefit of being faster than their predecessors - and, Samsung says, faster than their desktop and server counterparts in fact - also use less power, something unsurprisingly of vital importance when it comes to a mobile device. While it's big news for the chip firm, the implications are broader than just for the next flagship Galaxy, however.

Rumor: Galaxy S6 will be metal with a curved screen

Rumor: Galaxy S6 will be metal with a curved screen

The last time we saw anything about the Galaxy S6, it was a nearly bezel-less device that seemed far too good to be true. And hey, it was; people quickly discovered the device was a photoshopped pic of a different Samsung device, so we’re back to square one on the rumor/candyland board. A new rumor, though very much an eyebrow-raising one, suggests Samsung is gong aluminum with the Galaxy S6. Also, they’re getting into the curved screen game, if the talk is at all accurate.

The Galaxy Note Edge is, to be blunt, a quirky smartphone. It has a screen that rolls of to the side but is actually a distinct screen on its own. It is definitely a device that says "special". To turn that voice into a scream, it seems that a shop in Vietnam will be offering a gold-plated version of the smartphone with a curved screen. Yes, the quirky device just became luxurious in this gold Galaxy Note Edge version that has come out of nowhere and still has to see the light of day.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Note Edge camera

When we first saw the Galaxy Note 4 at a Samsung conference earlier this year, Samsung also showed us the Galaxy Note Edge. At that time, it wasn't entirely apparent - they're said to come with the same cameras. Since then, we've put them to the test. Some devices perform VERY different from one another even though they're supposed to have the same hardware - can Samsung stay true to its word here?
