More Reported Galaxy Note 5 Photos Released, No USB Type-C

Thanks to the latest images released to the web, we may have an even better look at the upcoming Galaxy Note 5 from Samsung than the ones posted just last week. While we got a good look at its frontside and display in the previous images, the latest pictures show the device from all angles, giving us a real good idea at how Samsung is working its new hardware design language into the device.  (more…)

Samsung Announces Desktop Monitor With Built-In Qi Wireless Charging

With the introduction of more technology over the past few years, it seems that our desks are becoming more cluttered than they have ever been. We simultaneously need smartwatch chargers, chargers for phones, tablets, and heck, maybe even a charger for Google Glass. The point is, it’s a messy situation. However, thanks to the introduction of a new desktop monitor from Samsung with built-in Qi Wireless Charging, you can begin to fight the clutter.  (more…)

And Now We Have Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ Pictures!

The leak game is strong this week. After seeing photos of the OnePlus 2 and the Moto X (3rd gen), we now have photos allegedly of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+. Their boot screens and potential size certainly lead us to believe that these are the devices we expect to see very soon.

So other than the fact that we have pictures of each phone, have we learned anything new? Not really, no. This is about what we expected from these two phones. One of the photos of the S6 Edge+ shows a model number of SM-G928A, which we talked about as being the AT&T version of the phone. That’s really it in terms of new info. Still, photos!  (more…)

Another Report Claims Samsung Will Announce the Galaxy Note 5 on August 12 or 13

Last week, SamMobile, who is a go-to source for Samsung information, reported that Samsung would unveil the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ on August 12 in New York City. Coming straight from Korea’s Business Korea this morning, the date could be pretty much solidified as either the 12th of August or 13th.

To be clear, the first claim was for August 12, and now Korean sources claim August 13. It’s possible that all sources mean the same day, but the mixup is from the time zone differences in the US and Korea. From the US Pacific time zone to South Korea, the difference is 16 hours ahead. So, that means, our August 12 is their August 13. Make sense?  (more…)

DEAL: Unlocked AT&T Galaxy S6 Edge for Just $599 ($215 Off)

The best deal we have seen to date for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge popped up at eBay last night and is still going strong. For just $599, you can have Samsung’s uniquely-designed, double-edged phone. This is the AT&T model with 32GB of storage that would run you $815 if you bought it outright from AT&T. A $215 discount is a substantial one in my book.

This phone is brand new, but has apparently been opened so that the seller could unlock it. It’s also “unlocked” and ready for use on other GSM carriers, which could mean that it’ll work fine on T-Mobile, though it does seem to be missing T-Mobile’s 1700 band.

The deal includes both white or black models and free shipping.

Sprint’s Galaxy Note 5 UA Profile Reportedly Leaked, Suggests MicroSD Card Slot

It’s been called the controversy of our lifetime, as it has been reported multiple times that the Galaxy Note 5 would not feature a microSD card slot. However, thanks to a leaked User Agent Profile for Sprint’s Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920P), the device could feature a slot for expandable storage, supporting up to 128GB of extra space. Though, for the record, UAPs can be used to simply hold a place for upcoming devices, complete with un-finalized specs and other misleading information. For instance, the specs listed in this UA Profile sound a bit similar to those of the Galaxy Note 4. As the saying goes, nothing is confirmed.  (more…)
