The Gear A will have a rotating bezel, Samsung confirms

While all eyes are on the Galaxy Note 5 and the Galaxy S6 edge+ for next month's Samsung event, there is one little guy that will also be vying for the spotlight. And by little, we mean smartwatch size. Yes, the Gear A/Orbis might also be making a debut in two weeks time and it might be Samsung's most significant smartwatch yet. Unless you consider its other smartwatches significant. And no, it won't be because of the stubborn Tizen OS inside. This time, it's all about the bezels.

Blind Camera Test: Galaxy S6 vs iPhone 6 vs LG G4 in low light

Today we're conducting a test which will decide the finest of three of the best-rated smartphone cameras on the market today. We're testing the Apple iPhone 6, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the LG G4. Today's test will be a blind test, with each photo cropped to the same pre portions as the others in each individual test. Each camera has been set to Auto mode and HDR has been turned off. While the angles at which these photos have been taken are not exact, they're very, very close.

Galaxy Note 5 release may see price cuts to S6 and Edge

Galaxy Note 5 release may see price cuts to S6 and Edge

Samsung is set to reveal the Galaxy Note 5 on the 13th of August, and along with it, price "adjustments" for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Speaking this week on their Q2 2015 earnings, Samsung suggested that they'll be adjusting, or dropping, that is to say, prices for their two hero smartphones. This is due to the less-than-stellar sales of both devices, and likely a prepared punch to the events set to take place in the middle of next month, right alongside the Note and the larger S6 Edge Plus.

Dismal Samsung Q2 numbers forces Galaxy S6 price cut

Dismal Samsung Q2 numbers forces Galaxy S6 price cut

It's one thing for a product to be highly popular and another thing for that popularity to translate into profits. That was the case back then with the HTC One (M7 and M8) and is now the case with Samsung's Galaxy S6 and S6 edge duo. The Korea manufacturer has just released its second quarter financials and, while the company did see some increase in numbers, it was only ever so slight. Plus, the Galaxy S6 flagship, hoped to be its savior, turned out to be almost a dud.

Final Galaxy Note 5 images release herald August event

Final Galaxy Note 5 images release herald August event

Today images of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 have appeared in their final form, looking just about as near-official as they're going to get. While these are still renderings - much in the same way all smartphone companies release renderings for ad material - they're as close to the real deal as you're going to see for the moment, just a few weeks away from the real thing. Here the Galaxy Note 5 is looking pretty spiffy, complete with an industrial design finesse matched only by the Galaxy S6 Edge, its little sibling.

Samsung’s 1μm-pixel camera sensor to keep phones even thinner

Samsung’s 1μm-pixel camera sensor to keep phones even thinner

Ever wondered why smartphones like the iPhone 6 or the Samsung Galaxy S6 have protruding rear cameras? That's because as thin as smartphones might be getting, the powerful camera sensors in them aren't. This leads to problems in finding ways to stash all of those inside in creative ways, like what Apple might be doing, or, more logically, creating smaller camera sensors that still perform as well as their bigger counterparts. Samsung claims it might have just have the latter solution in its new 1μm-pixel sensor.

Galaxy Note 5, Gear A, Edge may add up to Samsung’s biggest Unpacked yet

Galaxy Note 5, Gear A, Edge may add up to Samsung’s biggest Unpacked yet

Earlier today Samsung sent out invitations to an event that'll have three devices (at least) released to the masses. Just following Motorola's event today and before Apple's event later this year, the "Galaxy" giant will more than likely be revealing two smartphones and at least one smartwatch. Given the amount of rumors, leaks, and tips we've received over the past few weeks, we can't help but wonder if Samsung's secrets have all been revealed already. And if they have, is that going to be just fine with potential consumers?

Galaxy Note 5 gets an Exynos 7422 and some hi-res pics

Galaxy Note 5 gets an Exynos 7422 and some hi-res pics

One of the problems with leaks is that there is really no telling which leak is the most accurate one until the fated day finally arrives. Take for example the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, whose leaks are starting to heat up as the August 13 announcement date fast approaches. Many aspects of the S Pen phablet remains in limbo, like the presence, or absence, of an auto eject mechanism for the stylus. But perhaps the most contentious component is the CPU, which is now again said to be an Exynos 7422.

Samsung schedules Unpacked August 13th: Note 5 ahoy!

Samsung schedules Unpacked August 13th: Note 5 ahoy!

This week is bringing events from a few big companies, but Samsung is not one of them. Instead, the Korean company will be having its next event in mid-August, but before that it has started teasing what we can expect. The company fired out some invites today, announcing that it will be showing off its next big thing on August 13, and it followed the invites with an animated teaser on its Twitter account -- we see rolling lines, and they (probably) mean there's another curved display inbound.

Galaxy S6 Mini pics leak, launch tipped for August

Samsung is facing declining sales with its Galaxy S6 devices having been on the market for a while now. To push new sales it needs a new smartphone and some new images have leaked showing that the company is set to launch a smaller version of the Galaxy S6 dubbed the Galaxy S6 Mini. A Mini version of the smartphone would indicate that it will have a smaller screen and should be less expensive to purchase as well.
