Samsung Pay won’t be coming until September

Samsung Pay won’t be coming until September

There might be a small hiccup in Samsung's mobile payment plans. Originally intended to launch next month, company EVP Rhee In Jong revealed in an investor call that Samsung Pay will actually launch in September in the US and South Korea. This is to align the inauguration with the announcement of Samsung's next high-end model, the Galaxy Note 5. While that might make sense from a marketing standpoint, it does mean that Samsung will be very late in the mobile payments game against Google and Apple.

Galaxy Tab S2 seen at TENAA, FCC, could win thinnest title

Galaxy Tab S2 seen at TENAA, FCC, could win thinnest title

When it comes to Samsung's products, much of the mobile world's attention may have been lavished on its flagship, mostly because that's both the most recent and so far the most notable. It has been quite a while since the Korean manufacturer put out anything that can be considered "innovative" when it comes to the tablet category. That, however, may soon change with the coming of the Galaxy Tab S2, which might be very well be successful in claiming the title of the world's thinnest slate.

This is the Incredible Hulk Galaxy S6

This is the Incredible Hulk Galaxy S6

What you're about to see is not another Avengers Edition Galaxy S6 from Samsung. Instead, it's the Samsung Galaxy S6 with a SkinIt skin on it, straight from their newest Marvel Comics collection. Much like we saw with the Spider-Man skin for the MacBook Pro, this release has a comic cover retro-fitted - or future-fitted - onto the Samsung smartphone. This device is the same Galaxy S6 you've seen in our full Samsung Galaxy S6 / Edge review, only now it's far more Hulk-ified and super strange.

Chart shows which smartphones have the most screen space

Chart shows which smartphones have the most screen space

There was a time when a larger screen meant an equally larger body, but of late, manufacturer's have been trying to buck the trend by cutting out bezels and other tricks. Not all, however, are as successful as others, and not all new devices are better than their predecessors. Mobilsiden has compiled a list of smartphones and their so called "screen to body" ratios and helpfully put them into a handy infographic for easier perusal. And the revelations it holds are pretty amusing and even a bit perplexing.

Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man Limited Edition lands in Korea 27 May

Galaxy S6 edge Iron Man Limited Edition lands in Korea 27 May

Ever dreamed of becoming Iron Man? Yes? Sadly, no one yet has the brains or the money to develop his or her own hi-tech body suit (some might believe Elon Musk fits the bill) so we'll have to settle for approximations of the real thing. Like this Galaxy S6 edge, for example. Promised last week, the special limited edition bearing all the hallmarks of the Mark II has finally arrived on the platform. But, depending on where you are, you may never be able to get your hands on it.

Samsung patents dual OS phablet-laptop dock combo

Samsung patents dual OS phablet-laptop dock combo

Samsung has recently teamed up with Microsoft in a deal that brought the latter's Android apps pre-installed on Samsung's flagships. But Samsung might actually have something even more intimate in mind. A patent filed back in late 2014 reveals one of Samsung's ideas for combining two platforms: a phablet that runs Android by default but switches to Windows when joined with a dock that is practically an empty laptop shell, thereby providing the familiar mobility of Android on mobile with Windows productivity in the workplace.

Galaxy Note 5 Edge is better off S Pen-less

Galaxy Note 5 Edge is better off S Pen-less

Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 Edge edition is tipped to be released without the standard S Pen. This follows well with feedback from commenters on their experience with the S Pen and the first Galaxy Edge, as slipping off the bend isn't all that uncommon. A much larger edition of the Galaxy S6 Edge is what this new Galaxy Note 5 Edge would be, with two edges like its smaller relative and no S Pen inside. A simple way to move beyond the required stylus, or a mistake waiting to happen?

This is the Iron Man Galaxy S6 Edge

This week the folks at Samsung have revealed a big teaser - the entire device, that is to say - for the Iron Man edition Galaxy S6 Edge. The teaser image is shrouded in black. Amp up the levels and you'll see the whole device. This machine is hot rod red and gold, just like Tony Stark ordered it. Ready to be low-key as the Mark 2 itself. Now we've just got to see the front - but we can pretty much guess the rest from here.

Galaxy Note 5, Project Zen leaked with puzzling details

Galaxy Note 5, Project Zen leaked with puzzling details

It's not unusual for OEMs to venture outside of their comfort zones in search of the perfect pitch. That is especially true for Samsung, who has, at least for the time being, diverged from its usual path with the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. That said, there are some choices that still boggle the mind and confound imagination. Like these new tidbits that are coming about Samsung's rumored two high end smartphones, particularly the one called Project Zen, the Galaxy Note Edge successor that might not be a successor at all.

Samsung Galaxy S6 brutally destroyed by Desert Eagle

Samsung Galaxy S6 brutally destroyed by Desert Eagle

Samsung Galaxy S6 undergoes toughness test which includes a shot with a Desert Eagle sidearm. While the crew in this test do indeed apply a carbon fiber skin from DBrand, it... really doesn't do much to protect the phone. As it's not meant to really - not from a bullet, anyway. This gun-based toughness test is mostly a fun sort of deal, as there's only one device that's truly able to stop a bullet, and I think you know the brand name.
