It would appear Samsung is preparing yet another wearable for the global market, one more targeted to fitness tracking enthusiasts, according to a leaked set of photos. Much like the Gear S2, the SM-R150 is equipped with a round display with the same rotating bezel. However, at least from what the leaked pictures show, you can detach the body of the watch from the straps and place it on your clothing during workouts or running if you choose. (more…)
2016 is heating up to be a big year for many Android OEMs, and with the apparent success of the Nexus 6P, we have yet another manufacturer being praised by US consumers, that OEM being Huawei. We already know Samsung (Galaxy S7), LG (G5), and HTC (One M10) are cooking up their 2016 flagship devices for launch pretty soon, with Motorola and Huawei possibly to follow along soon after.
With that said, we will be keeping our eye on Motorola, as Lenovo’s true plans were recently misreported, and some thought that the company was doing away with their best-selling smartphone. Thankfully, that’s not the case. HTC is also an OEM to keep track of, as basically, they desperately need a winner in 2016.
So, let us know which Android OEM you are most excited about in 2016, then share your reason why down in the comments.
According to an LG executive who spoke this morning, the company is ready to take Samsung on head-to-head in 2016. Last year, the LG G4 launch was, “delayed months after release,” of Samsung’s Galaxy S6, in attempt to not be outshone if launched side by side. At this year’s MWC, we will likely see Samsung unveil the Galaxy S7 (and possibly additional variants), right alongside the LG G5. (more…)
For weeks, we have been operating under the assumption that there will be two new Galaxy S7 models to kick off Samsung’s 2016 campaign in mobile. We assumed those were the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, similar to last year’s launch of the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. According to a new leak from @evleaks, we should get those two, but we also may get a third in the Galaxy S7 Edge+. (more…)
As we push steadily into 2016, the info on upcoming flagship devices from Samsung is beginning to heat up, and if the latest info from AnTuTu is to be believed, then we may have a few specs for the upcoming Galaxy S7 Edge. According to the spec benchmark, the device could feature a 5.1″ QHD display (which differs from a previous report that stated a size of 5.5″), Snapdragon 820 processor, along with other reported features such as water resistance and an SD card slot.

We were stumbling around Amazon earlier today, looking for deals that you could throw cash at, now that you have likely all returned back to work following the holidays. Because, if we’re being honest, focusing on work after that couple of week stretch is nearly impossible and your mind probably still wants to buy gadgets and things that people refused to buy you for X-Mas.
So here you go. We have microSD cards up to 128GB in capacity as low as $34.99, along with a bunch of power-related products from Aukey, Anker, and Tronsmart. From desktop chargers with Quick Charge 2.0 to massive power banks, you’ve got options below. (more…)
Verizon, as of this morning, is pushing out an update of Android 5.1.1 to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. In case you were wondering, Android 5.1.1 was first introduced by Google in April of last year, some 9 months ago.
The update drops in as build LMY47X and software version VRU2BOK3, for those keeping track. (more…)
Looking for big Android news at this year’s CES? You won’t find any. What we are seeing are previously announced Android or wearable related products being given new life with new colors and finishes and price tags. For example, here we have the Samsung Gear S2 Classic in two new finishes of 18K rose gold and platinum. (more…)
