Leaks aplenty have lent themselves to the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. This device is the next in a line of devices that come with curved edges - more than one, to be clear - in both standard and larger screen sizes. While the first Samsung Galaxy Note Edge was extremely similar to its size sibling, the Galaxy Note 4, this Galaxy S6 Edge Plus is sure to shake things up. This isn't going to be a curved Note, it's going to be a big S6.

Samsung debuts LEVEL U, a neckband-based Bluetooth headset

Samsung has just announced a new wireless Bluetooth headset, dubbed the LEVEL U, that sports a new ergonomic design, along with functionality not only for listening to music, but for text-to-speech applications as well.

New Samsung Tizen smartphones coming later this year

Surprise, surprise! Despite lack of word or whisper, Samsung isn't about to give up on its Tizen plans for world domination, especially when its one and only smartphone so far is reportedly selling well in the one and only region it's available. Insider sources even claim that the Korean OEM has plans to put out more, which means not just one, handsets running this less known mobile platform sometime later this year.

Samsung develops new tech that could double Li-on battery life

Samsung develops new tech that could double Li-on battery life

As our smart-devices become capable of doing more, it usually means that battery life takes a back seat, especially as smart-devices keep shrinking. Samsung researchers have developed a new method of constructing lithium-ion batteries that tackles the issue of extending battery life on a nanoscale. The use of silicon in lithium-ion batteries is a widely researched development, but a caveat to using silicon as an active material in Li-On batteries is that its volume drastically changes through charge-discharge cycles. This can lead to weakening the battery's life cycle energy density.

Samsung invests in FOVE eye-tracking VR headset

Samsung may have its own virtual reality tech, but that hasn't stopped it from investing in eye-tracking headset startup FOVE. The head-worn display has already raised almost twice its quarter-million Kickstarter goal of $250,000 with more than a week to spare, but in the meantime its combination of 3D graphics that respond not only where your head is pointing, but where in the scene your eyes are actually looking, has caught the attention of Samsung Ventures, the investment arm of the South Korean firm.
