Samsung Smart Glow to be more than just about notifications

Samsung Smart Glow to be more than just about notifications

A few weeks ago, Samsung was revealed to have a rather curious new feature intended for the most unlikely of models: the Smart Glow "ring" for the Galaxy J2 2016. Although neither the smartphone nor the feature have made their actual debut yet, there is already some information floating around that the Smart Glow won't be limited to simple notifications in the future and could very well be as extensible, or at least customizable, as Samsung's Edge panels on the company's curved edge smartphones.

The Galaxy Note 7 details Samsung’s Secret Weapon

The Galaxy Note 7 details Samsung’s Secret Weapon

While it's not been too much of a massive secret thus far, Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 does indeed have a few cards up its sleeve that haven't yet been revealed in full. As Samsung aims to take full advantage of the lull in major innovation reveals the iPhone has set for them this year, they're pulling out all the stops. What better way to grab your attention than by scanning your eyeballs?

Galaxy Note 7 now tipped to have 3,600 mAh battery only

Galaxy Note 7 now tipped to have 3,600 mAh battery only

One of the missteps that Samsung made with the Galaxy S6 was to take away the removable battery, which was exacerbated by the fact that it had a rather modest 2,550 mAh battery. The OEM partly corrected that with the Galaxy S7 by giving it a still non-removable but bigger 3,000 mAh pack. Samsung might be dragged again into the battery debate with the Galaxy Note 7 (or Note 6) now that the latest word is that it will have a 3,600 mAh battery instead of the earlier leaked and hoped for 4,000 mAh.

Galaxy S5 Neo Marshmallow updates spotted across Europe

Galaxy S5 Neo Marshmallow updates spotted across Europe

Good news for those of you rocking a Galaxy S5 Neo: it would appear that Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is being pushed to the device across Europe. Rumors at the end of last year suggested such an update would eventually arrive on the Galaxy S5 Neo, but we didn't have a solid ETA outside of rather vague claims of a Q1 2016 roll out. We're a little past Q1 at this point, but hey, better late than never, right?

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

The next Samsung smartphone with an S Pen has appeared in a new set of specs leaked from microblogger "I Ice". This new set of specifications seems to confirm several of the more important details we'd been told in the past, like a 5.7-inch display with Super AMOLED technology. That same display is tipped to have 2K resolution (that's 2560 x 1800, like the Galaxy Note 5), and will come in two iterations - one with an Edge, one without.

Galaxy Note7 leaked logos imply curved and flat models

Galaxy Note7 leaked logos imply curved and flat models

Reading rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7, or Galaxy Note 6, or Galaxy Note7, is like watching a tennis match. The continuous back and forth tips and leaks from sources will leave you undecided whether it will be a flat version only or a curved edge version only. Based on this latest leak of the smartphone's logos, apparently there will be both. Perhaps Samsung itself couldn't make up its mind which version the market will really root for, so it's just going to stick to its tried and true method of throwing in both and seeing which one survives.

Olympics-themed Galaxy S7 Edge on the way from Samsung

Special themed-editions of Samsung's flagship Galaxy smartphones have become a fairly common thing in the last few years; we've just seen the new Batman "Injustice Edition" of the Galaxy S7 Edge, and last year there was an Iron Man version of the Galaxy S6 Edge. It seems the next special edition from the Korean manufacturer is for the upcoming 2016 Summer Olympics.

Oculus Rift goes cross-platform with Samsung Gear VR

Oculus Rift goes cross-platform with Samsung Gear VR

It would appear that though the two platforms have their major differences, Oculus Rift will be going cross-platform with Samsung Gear VR. This means that mobile devices like the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 5 will be able to see games like "Anshar Wars 2", a game that Oculus Rift players can also play, with all devices in multiplayer playing at the same time. This is the first game that will also be a cross-buy - purchase on one platform and you don't have to pay for it again on the other.

Samsung Notebook 7 Spin packs rapid charging, 3-in-1 display

Samsung has introduced a new laptop designed for multimedia enthusiasts called the Samsung Notebook 7 spin. The notebook is being offered in two different display sizes, one 13.3-inch and the other 15.6-inch. Each brings with it a 360-degree touchscreen, as well as rapid charging that quickly adds hours of battery life without much time being spent tethered to a wall outlet. The features roll on from there, with the Notebook 7 spin expected to be available from June 26.

Manufacturers should stick to Android, despite Google exerting more control

Manufacturers should stick to Android, despite Google exerting more control

Huawei was recently reported to be in the process of developing its own OS as a contingency plan. It isn't unique nor first in that regard. Samsung has long been believed to have invested in Tizen for that very purpose. Both of these independent pieces of news share a common theme, a common goal: being free of total dependence on Google. That concern has recently resurfaced with whispers of Google desiring to exert more and more control over Android. But whether that is true or not, and it is likely to be true, Android hardware makers will be better off remaining with Android, with or without Google.

Samsung Gear 360 arrives in US (but you probably can’t buy it)

Samsung's Gear 360 camera is finally going on sale in the US, but you're almost certainly not able to actually buy one. The 360-degree camera was revealed alongside the Galaxy S7 earlier this year, but until now has only been available for sale in markets outside of the US. Now, Samsung is kicking off sales, but in a very limited way.
