Oh good, Samsung is making a Surface clone now, too

The Samsung Galaxy View has been teased by the company this week immediately after showing off their Gear S2 smartwatch in full. While we've gotten our Gear S2 hands-on experience up close and personal, this Galaxy View remains a bit of a mystery. With a kickstand at its back and a bit screen up front, we can't help but see similarities between this and Microsoft's leading piece of hardware - the Surface. Could this be Samsung's attempt at the crossover?

This week is bringing events from a few big companies, but Samsung is not one of them. Instead, the Korean company will be having its next event in mid-August, but before that it has started teasing what we can expect.

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.

Samsung Galaxy A5 and A3 arrive with svelte all-metal unibody

Rumors can be put to rest, with Samsung introducing the new Galaxy A5 and Galaxy A3 handsets tonight. The phones come in a rainbow of colors, each sporting a full metal unibody and the design we saw leak earlier this month. The two handsets are largely the same, differing the most with their displays (5-inches and 4.5-inches, respectively) and their cameras, though the A5 does pack an additional gig of RAM. Selfies have been given some special attention by Samsung, as well, which packed the handsets with several features aiding in snapping the best shots of yourself.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha: all the important details pre-release

There’s little doubt now that the device that thus far has been called Samsung Galaxy Alpha will be appearing either this Wednesday or on the 3rd of September.

The big difference its its smaller display - no longer 5.1-inches, but 4.7-inches instead.
