Galaxy S5 Android 5.0 Lollipop update starts rolling out

Galaxy S5 Android 5.0 Lollipop update starts rolling out

Samsung faithful who have been feeling a tad jealous of LG and Motorola the past month might start feeling a little bit better now, if not even more anxious. The awaited Android 5.0 update for the Galaxy S5 has apparently started to roll out, at least in Poland. If so, then it practically marks the start of Lollipop's arrival on Samsung's early 2014 flagship, probably in Europe first, before the year ends. Perhaps a fitting Christmas gift to those who stuck with Samsung through thick or, lately, thin.

Galaxy S6 details: turning Samsung’s mobile fortunes

If today's report on the sales of the Galaxy S5 are true, Samsung's next release will need to be a doozy. We previously had a chat on what Samsung was potentially getting into with the Galaxy S6 - how they may be working on a "Project Zero", a reboot of the entire series, a re-imagining of the smartphone monster they've created. Now with the Galaxy S5 said to have been selling 40% less than its predecessor, there's no better time for Samsung to bring the heat.

Galaxy S5 sold 40% less than Samsung planned tip insiders

Galaxy S5 sold 40% less than Samsung planned tip insiders

Samsung reportedly sold 40-percent fewer Galaxy S5 smartphones than the company had expected, a huge and unexpected drop versus the previous Galaxy S4, leaving handsets piled up in warehouses and putting executives at risk. The South Korean firm had been especially upbeat about the potential of the smartphone, even increasing production compared to the S4 so as to launch in multiple countries simultaneously back in April and still meet what management believed would be likely demand. That interest, according to a new report, failed to materialize however, potentially leaving Samsung with some tough decisions ahead.

Galaxy S6 Rebirth: details are the devil for Samsung

Galaxy S6 Rebirth: details are the devil for Samsung

With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge in Germany comes proof that Samsung needs to do something BRAND NEW with their Galaxy S lineup. Earlier this year - soon after the Galaxy Note Edge was announced - Samsung announced they'd be bringing the Note Edge to Germany. On one condition: they'd have to vote on it. More than 120,000 votes later and Samsung seems pleased - the device will indeed be heading for Deutschland in a single, full release this Autumn. But what's this got to do with the Galaxy S6?

Galaxy S6: Samsung may make a whole new phone category

Like the Galaxy Note, Samsung has been tipped to be bringing on a whole new category of smart device with the Galaxy S6 next year. While we've seen some small moves toward a release like this with the Galaxy A lineup - metal rims, and all that - the next collection of Samsung smartphone-like devices could very well open up a whole new door. Sound like the rebirth the Samsung needs to stay on track as the top Android smartphone company in the world?

Samsung Gear Circle release set for USA

Samsung Gear Circle release set for USA

There's a device called the Samsung Gear Circle out there in the wild today - have you heard of it? It's not gotten one whole heck of a lot of press thus far. Mostly because it's not a smartphone, it's not a smart watch, and it's not part of a category of devices that gets much innovation all that often. The Samsung Gear Circle is a pair of earbuds - sort of. This pair of earbuds is meant to be worn as a necklace, and at any time.

Galaxy S6: pulling Samsung up by its own bootstraps

Galaxy S6: pulling Samsung up by its own bootstraps

It's called codename Project Zero, they say, and it'll change the way the Samsung Galaxy line has been evolving over the past several years. If the Samsung Galaxy S III was Samsung's coming of age, the Samsung Galaxy S6 will be a revolution. Of design, mostly - not so much on the specifications. We're in a stagnated state of affairs in the smartphone business across the board, after all. It's the physical design of the smartphone that'll be changing, not necessarily the experience.
