Samsung’s Galaxy S6 all-metal frame leaked

Samsung’s incoming Galaxy S6 is making its way through the rumor mill, and the latest gives us a clear set of pics of what is believed to be the new all-metal frame for the smartphone. Before you say it, we know — it looks like an iPhone. Or an HTC One. Whatever. In the pics, you’ll also find some detail for what the new-look Sammy flagship has in store for us, including a camera ensemble that has been shifted to the center, with a flash cutout big enough to house a heart-rate monitor.

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.

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.

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.

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?

Vodafone Netherlands outs Galaxy S6, Galaxy S Edge names

We had quite a few rumors about HTC's MWC 2015 contender the past few days. Now it's time to turn our gaze back to Samsung's tag team. While there is very little doubt as to what the flagship will be named, which will be the Galaxy S6, we're now seeing some indication that its curved edge variant might be named a wee bit differently. Vodafone Netherlands has, accidentally or otherwise, put up a placeholder page for the Galaxy S6 and in the page's source code also lies the name of the Galaxy S Edge.

Galaxy S6 might not be waterproof, but Galaxy S6 Active will be

Rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S6 continue to pile up, but the latest ones seem to be sending mixed messages to both fans and onlookers. The latest word on the rumor mill is that the next Samsung flagship won't be flaunting a high waterproof rating, unlike the Galaxy S5 before it. Instead, that feature will be bequeathed on what would be the Galaxy S6 Active, which will be seeing a return to the lineup this year and adding to the number of rumored Galaxy S6 variants.

AnTuTu 2014 charts: Xiaomi tops, Samsung dominates

AnTuTu 2014 charts: Xiaomi tops, Samsung dominates

With January almost halfway through, AnTuTu is releasing some interesting numbers for 2014. Although it isn't surprising to see Samsung's smartphones take up four slots in 2014's top 10, despite slumps in profits and sales, the charts do have a few unexpected revelations. While we have indeed seen the rise of Chinese manufacturers in the global smarpthone market, the inclusion of rather small players like OnePlus into the top 10 most popular smartphones is quite unexpected and perhaps hints at the changing tastes of consumers.
