Android Marshmallow and Nougat update lists revealed

Today we're running down the list of devices that have or will have soon the Google update to Android Marshmallow and Android Nougat. It's a bit difficult to tell the whole range of devices that'll be getting Nougat as of yet since Google's not officially released the OS in full - but we've got our sensors out. The Marshmallow list keeps growing by the day, too - the latest entry comes in the Honor 5X, which also gains EMUI 4.0 for good measure.

Samsung Gear VR 2 spied in import records

Samsung has been peddling its Gear VR virtual reality headset for a while now and the category hasn't exactly boomed yet.

Samsung outs world’s first UFS 256GB memory card

Samsung outs world’s first UFS 256GB memory card

Samsung has a strange attitude when it comes to microSD cards and smartphones. In the Galaxy S6 generation, it removed those but due to no small amount of criticism, it returned those in the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge and, presumably, the upcoming Galaxy Note 6/7 as well. And now it has unveiled what it boasts is the world's first batch of microSD cards, including a 256 GB one, based on the new UFS removable card standard. But, sadly, these new cards might not be compatible with any existing device in the market today.

Samsung LEVEL U Pro ANC shuts everything but the music out

Samsung LEVEL U Pro ANC shuts everything but the music out

While many headphones promise a quality listening experience, few are able to deliver because of the ingress of ambient noise. Earbud type headphones are the biggest offenders because their design makes it admittedly harder to block out the outside world when you want to disappear into your music. Although not exactly one of the biggest name in the audio industry, Samsung is injecting its own brand of tech savvy into a new pair of LEVEL U Pro ANC earphones that add a unique type of noise cancellation to the company's popular neckband accessory.

Samsung’s odd Serif TV is now available in the US

Samsung’s odd Serif TV is now available in the US

Most TV makers these days are touting how their products have barely no borders and are so thin that they seem to actually blend into the wall. In short, they are trying to make TVs "disappear", visually speaking, of course. While Samsung is indeed part of that "most" crowd, for at least one model it has decided to go in the opposite direction. Unveiled last September was the Serif TV that shouted borders all around, supposedly inspired by the Serif font for the letter "i". Now that unusual design of a TV is finally available in the US, almost a year later, but only from the Museum of Modern Art.

Verizon, Samsung 4G extender puts a mini cell tower in homes

No matter how strong your 4G LTE connection is, there will come a time, or a place, where the signal degrades to near uselessness. Sometimes, those times and places are found inside our very own homes, where structures and materials hinder the spread of cellular signals throughout the building. Making sure its customers won't be bereft of that much needed Internet connection, Verizon has teamed up again with Samsung to launch a 4G LTE Network Extender that practically gives homes and offices a mini LTE tower of their own.
