Galaxy Tab E family tipped to head to US in 2016

Fans of Samsung tablets that were a bit jealous of the Galaxy Tab E 8.0 that launched in Taiwan recently will be glad to hear that the entire Galaxy E family is heading to the US. Right now we don't know exactly when the tablets will arrive in the States, all we know is that it will happen later this year. The arrival of these tablets in the US isn't official from Samsung just yet.

Samsung Galaxy S7 back isn’t flat, and neither is the camera

Samsung Galaxy S7 back isn’t flat, and neither is the camera

Samsung has already confirmed that it will have an Unpacked event on the 21st of February, which we take to mean an unveiling of the Galaxy S7, among other things. So there's really nothing else to do but wait. Or while the time with even more leaks and rumors. The Galaxy S7, to be honest, has all but been leaked to death, but finer details are still cropping up here and there. Take for example this latest schematic showing off the smartphone's non-flat rear, both in terms of design and in terms of the camera hump.

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date, price, specs, features to boost software stronghold

Samsung Galaxy S7 release date, price, specs, features to boost software stronghold

Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge models suggest that the company will stick with model sizes that developers need not change for. After years of changing the innards and outsides of the Samsung Galaxy hero smartphone lineup, Samsung appears to have stuck with what works - and, in the process, they're about to create an environment that's strong enough for developers to invest time and effort into the platform. As it is with Apple's iPhones and their rarely-changing display densities, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge will follow the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Plus' leads.

Samsung Galaxy S7 release tipped with Gear 360 spherical cam

Samsung Galaxy S7 release tipped with Gear 360 spherical cam

Samsung is reported to be revealing not only their Samsung Galaxy S7 hero phone, but a spherical, VR-friendly camera called Gear 360. This device, the Samsung Gear 360, has been teased as quite akin to what we've reported under a different name late last year: DUO PIXEL. That device, we'd gathered, would work somewhat like the Ricoh Theta camera, capturing two photos or two videos at once, combining them to create one spherical piece of media.

Samsung Unpacked set for 21st February, expect the Galaxy S7

Samsung Unpacked set for 21st February, expect the Galaxy S7

Mark your calendars! Just a day before the madness of MWC 2016 starts, Samsung will be unveiling "The Next Galaxy". The Korean manufacturer has set aside the evening of Sunday, February 21, for its bi-annual Unpacked event, where, among other things, it is expected to reveal the Galaxy S7. Or Galaxy S7's, depending on how many Sammy really has prepared. But judging by how the invites are themed, you can expect more than just a smartphone to be announced. You can, perhaps, expect a new way of looking at things, almost literally.

Virtual Reality Done Wrong: Making it Look Terrible

Virtual Reality Done Wrong: Making it Look Terrible

Today we're going to discuss how not to present virtual reality to the public. The images you see at the top of this article are wrong. They're bad. Skeptics of this platform see these images and remain skeptical. People who love virtual reality look at these images and see how goofy they look when they have virtual reality headsets on. It may have worked in the 1980s when ads were extremely strange - but it's not going to work here in the present.

Samsung earnings continue to fall, looks to IoT for help

Samsung earnings continue to fall, looks to IoT for help

Companies are starting to reveal their financial performance for the last quarter and the whole year of 2015 and, in general, things are taking a slightly negative trend, even for the likes of Apple. Unsurprisingly, Samsung's story isn't any better and its profits continue to slide. This time, however, its semiconductor business, as well as the foreign exchange status of the Korean Won, which it has traditionally relied on, wasn't enough to save it. So this time around, it is looking to a new market segment, the Smart Home and Smart Health market, for hope.

Samsung Galaxy S7 might launch with an upgrade program

Samsung Galaxy S7 might launch with an upgrade program

Deja vu? If yes, then you might have heard of how Apple offered an upgrade, or some might call it "rental", program when it announced the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus last September. Or you might have also heard of Samsung's plans to do likewise. While whispers about that upgrade scheme has died out since, it is being resuscitated now that the Galaxy S7 is just around the corner. Or so it is hoped. Korean media report that Samsung might have its own rental system in place by the time the Galaxy S7 flagship hits stores in March.

Samsung SmartThings ads show how you can have super powers

The past few weeks have been rather hard on the Internet of Things market. Despite the slew of new trinkets and ideas that were paraded at CES 2016 earlier this month, bugs and security holes in currently marketed devices cast a rather negative light on connected home appliances. Perhaps Samsung thought it was time to lighten up the mood, especially considering it too has some IoT products to sell. In a set of ads revolving around its SmartThings platform, Samsung reveals how IoT can give you superpowers. Or at least the semblance of it.
