From the story the photos tell, the device will feature a metallic band around its outside, minor side bezel (plenty on top and bottom of the display, though), blackened backside with a slight texture added, frontside Home button, a large camera on the back, and it appears that the flash and heart rate monitor have been placed on the side of the camera.

Samsung, in its latest ad targeted directly at iPhone owners getting excited about the larger display that has been rumored to finally arrive in the next phone from Apple, took the chance to remind those users that it has been at least two years now without that display, and yet a bigger, better display was right in front of them this whole time. Of course, Samsung is talking about the display in the Galaxy S5 or a number of other Galaxy products.
I think we will all laugh when Apple revolutionizes the big display. As Samsung points out, it will likely be “awesome” and “blow your mind.”

Samsung announced another major partnership this morning, teaming up with Lionsgate to premier the Part 1 trailer for Hunger Games: Mockingjay exclusively on Galaxy Tab S tablets at Comic-Con. For anyone attending Comic-Con on Friday July 25, you can head into a Samsung Galaxy Experience center to view the trailer at 12pm (PT).
For those of you who are not attending, but still need to see what Katniss Everdeen is getting herself into, you can view the trailer at your local Best Buy on July 26 through July 27 on Galaxy Tab S devices that are on display. It’s a crazy promotion, bordering silly, but that’s Samsung for you. (more…)
LG is usually pretty quiet when it comes to standing up to the competition. While HTC is constantly head butting with Samsung, and Samsung is relentless towards Apple on the playground of social media, LG is busy in the school’s gym doing deadlifts and pushups.
Our LG G3 review is on the way, don’t worry, but as we put our final touches on it, we wanted to continue showing you all there is to see about this incredible phone. We gave you our 25+ tips and tricks for the LG G3 yesterday, ran through a series of features on Monday, and now have a better comparison of the device to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8) to show off.
At this time, these are the three flagships of the moment. Sure, the new Moto X is still on the way, as is the Note 4, but for now, if you are considering a smartphone purchase, these are the three phones you would look at. (more…)
Level, the premium range of audio products introduced by Samsung back in April, will become available in the US starting tomorrow on Gilt.com. After the line passes through its 72-hour stint on Gilt, all products will come to Amazon (July 20), Samsung.com (July 21), and Samsung Experience Shops in Best Buy stores (July 27) shortly thereafter.
For those new to Level, you are looking at four different products. The Level Over is an over-ear Bluetooth headphone that delivers an “immersive sound experience.” It runs $349.99. The Level On is an on-ear, wired headphone that “packs a powerful, clear and pure sound in a compact design,” running $179.99. The Level In is a pair of in-ear buds that runs $149.99. Finally, the Level Box is a Bluetooth speaker that costs $169.99. We have yet to test any of these products, but hope they have something special in-store to justify those prices. At least they look pretty, right?
