Samsung Proximity brings beacons beyond iPhone

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. Here near the end of the year, Samsung's developer conference has led the way to the company's own software solution for beacon technology. It all begins with Bluetooth LE.

Gear S smartwatch to load traffic-powered apps

Samsung has announced that they'll be teaming with Inrix to bring a variety of traffic-powered apps and functionality to the Gear S smartwatch this Autumn and Winter. With Inrix real-time traffic updates, the Gear S will be able to send the user traffic time insight, telling them when the best time of day will be to take a trip, head to the store, or head home from work. This will work with the INRIX XD Traffic app specially aimed at Gear S users.

NVIDIA responds to Samsung’s “false advertising” claim

NVIDIA responds to Samsung’s “false advertising” claim

It is a well known legal tactic, especially between companies, for one to fight back a lawsuit with a countersuit. So when NVIDIA sued Samsung and Qualcomm last September, in what it claims to be the first patent suit it has ever filed, it fully expected Samsung to hit back with a suit of its own, which it did this week. But what it didn't expect was for Samsung, in the same lawsuit, to accuse NVIDIA of falsely advertising its Tekgra K1 as "the world's fastest mobile processor".

Galaxy S6 might be released earlier than expected

Galaxy S6 might be released earlier than expected

Samsung releases a lot of devices — that much is certain. Each year, it seems they push out dozens of smartphones, and we’re not even going to try and discern how many tablets there are from Samsung right now. Even with so many (often decent if not really good) devices from Samsung, their flagships still loom large. The Galaxy S5 is nearing it’s life cycle as a flagship device, which has given way to rampant Galaxy S6 speculation and rumors. This time, we’re talking release date.

Galaxy S6 Rebirth: details are the devil for Samsung

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. Earlier this year - soon after the Galaxy Note Edge was announced - Samsung announced they'd be bringing the Note Edge to Germany. On one condition: they'd have to vote on it. More than 120,000 votes later and Samsung seems pleased - the device will indeed be heading for Deutschland in a single, full release this Autumn. But what's this got to do with the Galaxy S6?

Verizon joins Samsung Gear S smartwatch club

Verizon joins Samsung Gear S smartwatch club

Verizon has joined the Samsung Gear S party, launching the 3G-enabled smartwatch today, though you'll pay a pretty penny for the privilege of equipping your wrist. The wearable - priced up by AT&T and T-Mobile USA last week - comes with its own cellular connectivity baked in, rather than relying solely on a Bluetooth-tethered smartphone to operate. However, that doesn't mean you can avoid a smartphone altogether, and that's where the Gear S starts to get expensive.

Samsung, Motorola midrange refresh spotted in benchmarks

Samsung, Motorola midrange refresh spotted in benchmarks

A lot of attention is paid to flagship devices, but those with the most impact on end-users are often mid-range. Last year, both Motorola and Samsung focussed on the mid-range segment, as well as its ability to make an impact in emerging markets like India. Two new devices, one from each of those two companies, has been spotted in benchmark testing. Though unnamed, it seems as though both Motorola and Samsung are following up on their mid-range success last year.

Galaxy S6: Samsung may make a whole new phone category

Like the Galaxy Note, Samsung has been tipped to be bringing on a whole new category of smart device with the Galaxy S6 next year. While we've seen some small moves toward a release like this with the Galaxy A lineup - metal rims, and all that - the next collection of Samsung smartphone-like devices could very well open up a whole new door. Sound like the rebirth the Samsung needs to stay on track as the top Android smartphone company in the world?
