Samsung’s next Exynos chip to have Cat. 10 LTE support

Samsung’s next Exynos chip to have Cat. 10 LTE support

Cat. 4, Cat. 6, and now Cat. 10. These chipmakers are really pushing the cellular capabilities of their products to the limits, perhaps even faster than networks can actually adopt these network speeds. Of course, that has never been a reason for the likes of Qualcomm and Samsung to take it easy. Following the mobile chip leader's footsteps, Samsung is now said to also have an Exynos ready next year that will achieve speeds of 450 Mbps on downlink, almost twice as fast as Cat. 6's 300 Mbps.

Gear VR sold out at Samsung UPDATE: and AT&T

There's a number of reasons why you might want to stay away from this first release of the Samsung Gear VR, but according to Samsung's sales website, there might be a few more reasons to buy. The Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition - the first and only version to have been released so far - is currently "out of stock" at Samsung's website. AT&T's stock appears to still be running strong*, but we do not know how low their stock is - if it's low at all.

You don’t want a Samsung Gear VR

You don’t want a Samsung Gear VR

You might not want a Samsung Gear VR - not yet, anyway. The first Samsung Gear VR you're going to see on the market - as early as this afternoon - is the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition. This may look like a consumer release, but it's not. AT&T may be suggesting that it is, and Samsung may be suggesting that it is, the team at Oculus VR are making relatively clear that this is not meant to be the end-all, be-all release for the Gear VR. It's got Oculus branding on it, after all - they're not going to let anything out the gate suggesting it's final before they agree 100% that it is, truly, ready for everyone.

Darknet: the Gear VR game that makes you Mnemonic

Darknet: the Gear VR game that makes you Mnemonic

The creator of the game Auralux has returned to the scene with another aesthetically gorgeous title, this one made for Samsung Gear VR specifically. This game goes by the name "Darknet", and it summons the classic age of "hacker" understanding - namely that time in history when movies depicted hacking as a visually rich, 3D-like experience. This experience stems from films like Hackers, Tron, and Lawnmower Man. You'll think you've entered the retro-future, and you'll have brought your VR self to fight the good fight.

Gear VR headset released with AT&T and Samsung

This week the folks at Samsung have pushed their Gear VR virtual reality headset to the public as an Innovator Edition.

You can buy this VR headset for use with your Galaxy Note 4 through AT&T starting December 12th or straight through Samsung starting this week. This device works with the Galaxy Note 4 exclusively - and you'll need one to make this headset do anything.

Samsung Galaxy A7 passes by FCC with only 3G in tow

Samsung Galaxy A7 passes by FCC with only 3G in tow

It seems that the last member of the metal clad Galaxy Alpha family is slowly, very slowly, making its way to the US. Briefly sighted at the FCC is a filing for a certain SM-A700H, the model name betraying its identity as the Samsung Galaxy A7. Though not much can be gleaned from this sighting, which is typical of most FCC entries, one curious bit emerges. This particular model apparently only supports GSM and W-CDMA networks, with no mention of any 4G LTE support.

Alleged Galaxy S6 benchmarks surface via AnTuTu

Alleged Galaxy S6 benchmarks surface via AnTuTu

Samsung didn’t do as well as it hoped with the Galaxy S5 smartphone when it hit the market. The phone sold in decent numbers, but those numbers were about 40% less than what Samsung expected. That means Samsung has a lot to prove to consumers who think it is falling behind in the smartphone market. The next major smartphone from Samsung is expected to be the Galaxy S6 and some benchmarks of this device have allegedly leaked.

Galaxy S5 Android 5.0 Lollipop update starts rolling out

Galaxy S5 Android 5.0 Lollipop update starts rolling out

Samsung faithful who have been feeling a tad jealous of LG and Motorola the past month might start feeling a little bit better now, if not even more anxious. The awaited Android 5.0 update for the Galaxy S5 has apparently started to roll out, at least in Poland. If so, then it practically marks the start of Lollipop's arrival on Samsung's early 2014 flagship, probably in Europe first, before the year ends. Perhaps a fitting Christmas gift to those who stuck with Samsung through thick or, lately, thin.

Video: Galaxy Note 4 running early Lollipop build

Android Lollipop, as we know, is slowly rolling out. Google has distanced themselves a bit from the timing of the latest Android OS hitting your device, and that’s for their phones. If you’ve got a device with a skin, like one from LG, HTC, or Samsung, the wait could be much longer. If you’ve got a Note 4 from Samsung, we’ve got good news for you: a new video shows Lollipop running on your device. We gotta say, it looks awesome.

Galaxy S6 details in the wings as A7 appears for certification

Galaxy S6 details in the wings as A7 appears for certification

Tenna strikes again, releasing information about the Galaxy A7 before Samsung can officially announce the device on its own. This is Samsung's thinnest smartphone - the thinnest phone they've ever made, that is to say - and it may be pushing clues as to what the Samsung Galaxy S6 might have in store. Metal, for starters - metal-rimmed, not unlike the Galaxy Note 4 - and a body that's 6.3mm thin. Are these the sort of features that'd bring you back into the Samsung fold for 2015?
