Samsung has taken the wraps off its photography-centric handset, the Galaxy K zoom. With this latest offering comes a 20.7-megapixel camera and an array of features not typically found on a smartphone, such as optical image stabilization. We've got a video and gallery of the device after the jump.
Samsung's recently launched range of Gear products -- the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit -- have all gained support for a total of 20 Samsung smartphones and tablets, the company announced this evening. The support extends the number of devices with which the wearables can be used, making them a more attractive option for some.
The Segue 1, referred to as the "least chemically evolved galaxy known," could hint at the universe's very first stars, according to researchers who recently studied the tiny galaxy. Among all known galaxies, Segue 1 has significantly fewer stars and less heavy elements, revealing an estimated end to its evolution 13 billion years ago.
It’s time for a set of early reviews for Samsung’s latest smartphone, the Galaxy S5. This device was introduced earlier this year at Mobile World Congress 2014 where we also got to get some hands-on time with the Samsung Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo, and Gear Fit smart wearables. Now the Galaxy S5 is headed for stores - or is already in stores - across the United States.
There’s no lack of interest in the next generation of phablet hardware this season, especially when it comes to the second wave of Samsung’s yearly dishing of smartphones. As the Samsung Galaxy S5 arrives, so too will the Galaxy Note 4 come not long after. As Spring arrives officially, so too must we prepare for summer.
Every once in a while there’s an app or device release who’s appearance on the market is more important than its inner workings. With Milk Music, this much is true. Samsung is continuing down the road of adding value to their devices, and their devices only, with apps that only work on Galaxy smartphones, Galaxy Note, and the Galaxy Tab tablet series. Milk Music is an internet radio app made to bring advertisement-free music to Samsung devices.
Samsung is ratcheting up its mobile device freebies with its next flagship, promising buyers of the upcoming Galaxy S5 a few hundred dollars' worth in premium app subscriptions.

This week in introducing the fifth iteration of their popular Galaxy smartphone line, Samsung’s J.K. Shin suggested that the company now has 200 million customers using Galaxy smartphones. While Samsung wasn’t specific in the definition of this number, we must assume that they’ve got 200,000,000 active users on Samsung Galaxy smartphones now. That’s one massive user base.
A number of LEDs have been introduced by Samsung today, the lot of which will almost certainly make their way into their next-generation smartphone release, the Samsung Galaxy S5. These components are headed off by a couple of what Samsung calls "Side View LEDs", rather long-looking components with an angle to them. Also included in this set are two reflector-integrated flash LED packages.
Samsung's next new screen-size for a smartphone is 5-inches, bringing in one element of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 to pair with the rest from the generation that came before it. While it's unclear at the moment if we'll ever see this device appear inside the United States, we do expect to see it up close and personal at Mobile World Congress 2014. We'll be there live and in full effect for you to see every device like this before it enters the States.
Following on the heels of yesterday's fingerprint scanner leak, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has found itself in the news again, this time with alleged debut and launch dates.
