Announced back at Mobile World Congress earlier this month, the metal- and glass-bodied Android smartphones mark the beginning of a new - and welcome - design direction for Samsung, swapping the plastic of their forebears for a far more premium feel.

Samsung’s new 128GB eMMC 5.0 storage targets the lower end

Samsung quietly unveils Galaxy Tab A in Russia

Samsung has announced a new line of tablets in Russia, without much fuss or fanfare and not even an official PR statement. It's almost as if it were ashamed to let it be known that it has a new family of Android tablets, and maybe it's for good reason.

Samsung Gear VR allows father to see son’s birth in real-time
