Samsung has announced an upcoming Galaxy Tab designed specifically for educational purposes, which will launch in time for the next academic school year and will bring with it integration with Google Play for Education.

It would appear that the idea of capturing every single thing you do - aka "life logging" has permeated the likes of Samsung. They've had an app leak today that's called "Life Times", one which captures anything you want it to capture, just so long as its on the smartphone you're running the app on. LG has an app that's rather similar - one called Life Square - already running on devices like the LG G Flex.
Earlier this week, Samsung's ZEQ Tizen smartphone leaked in a press photo, which revealed a phone looking dashingly similar to the Galaxy S4 and said to have a 4.8-inch display.

Today a listing at LG's South Korean wireless group LG U+ is suggesting that the next Samsung Galaxy smartphone - the Galaxy S 5 - will be appearing with another 1080p display. This wouldn't be unheard of - many users working with 1080p displays today have been more than adamant about the sharpness being well and above enough for normal, every-day activities. But this tip would, on the other hand, fly in the face of quad HD lovers everywhere - aka those that have suggested the next Galaxy device will ramp up again.
