OEMs rally behind Qualcomm and its Snapdragon 810

OEMs rally behind Qualcomm and its Snapdragon 810

Qualcomm may have admitted to the loss of a "large customer", which everyone knows by now to be Samsung, but the chip maker is far from ready to abdicated the mobile processor market throne. It has now called the banners of different manufacturers to come to its aid and convince the public, investors, and other manufacturers that there is nothing to fear from the Snapdragon 810 and that it is the chip to have for 2015. Noticeably but unsurprisingly, Samsung is absent from the roll call.

Galaxy S6 Edge teased by Samsung

Galaxy S6 Edge teased by Samsung

On the first of March, 2015, we'll be in Barcelona to see Samsung's next big thing. In this case, it'll almost certainly be a Samsung Galaxy S6, but there could very well be more than that. There could be a follow-up to the surprise hit that was the Galaxy Note Edge. This week Samsung has teased what could possibly be the Samsung Galaxy Edge, the first in a line of curved-screen devices made smaller than the Note - perhaps even with more than one edge to fiddle with.

Samsung Galaxy S6 design leaks: smaller screen, taller body

Samsung Galaxy S6 design leaks: smaller screen, taller body

In just about a month, we will finally see what Samsung really has in store for its Galaxy S6 flagship. In the meantime, however, we will have to satiate ourselves with interesting but unofficial leaks. We've already heard of quite a number of rumors, some of them not so encouraging. For this round, we're taking a peek at the overall design of the smartphone, with a particular attention to the body and screen size. The good news is that, while somewhat taller, the Galaxy S6 might be more "handy" than its predecessor.

Samsung may finally be ditching TouchWiz

Samsung may finally be ditching TouchWiz

If you ask a Samsung fan, they might say TouchWiz is awesome. If you ask anyone else (the majority, as it were), TouchWiz is terrible, dated, and bloated. Samsung’s Android overlay is possibly the last true ‘skin’ produced by any Android OEM, and a new report once again suggests Samsung is ditching most of it. We’ve heard before that Samsung was moving away from TouchWiz, and their mysterious ‘Project Zero’ is still thought as the internal project to get them there, so we’re holding out hope it’s finally happening.

IDC: as Apple surges, Samsung falls

IDC: as Apple surges, Samsung falls

Big changes are in the wings this year as IDC reports big movements in smartphone shipments for the fourth quarter of last year. In their report of the last three months of 2014, Samsung's year-over-year change was in the negative - the only company in the negative in the top five companies on IDC's chart. On the other hand, Samsung does remain in the top spot for smartphone shipments worldwide, followed closely by Apple. Apple appears to be closing in on Samsung in a big way, with less than a point difference in worldwide smartphone shipments.

Sorry Samsung, Apple’s probably the smartphone king

Sorry Samsung, Apple’s probably the smartphone king

Apple's Q4 2014 may not only have been its best quarter ever for iPhone sales, but the point at which it overtook arch-rival Samsung in the smartphone business. The Cupertino firm announced a massive 74.5m iPhone sales in the final three months of last year, setting itself a new record and - according to at least one research firm - putting it on at least level-pegging with Samsung. The South Korean company has played coy with its Galaxy numbers, but it's clear that Apple's rapid ascent has dramatically closed (if not destroyed) the gap between the two.

Alphabet soup: Samsung unveils Galaxy J1 in Malaysia

Alphabet soup: Samsung unveils Galaxy J1 in Malaysia

It seems like Samsung might really be switching to a new naming scheme. Whether it's more confusing or less, it's up to you to decide. Following the metal-clad Galaxy A series and the Tizen-powered Z1 in India, Samsung is revealing the Galaxy J1, an entry-level smartphone that is being marketed at the Malaysian market. Judging by that number, instead of a single letter, it is probably just the first of many J's that will flood the market with low-end specs, replacing Samsung's name-based catalog.

Samsung’s Q4 earnings report shows company down but not out

Samsung’s Q4 earnings report shows company down but not out

Many companies have dropped their latest earnings report today, and included among them is Samsung. The Korean company saw profits of 5.35 trillion won/$4.9 billion in its fourth quarter (ending December 31), an unfortunate decrease from the previous year of 27-percent. The results aren't all that surprising given the company's struggles in the recent past, but there was a glimmer of light through it all: the quarter's revenue was on the upswing with an 11-percent quarter-on-quarter increase to 52.73 trillion won.
