Alongside Samsung’s announcement of the Galaxy S5 today, the company also introduced a new fitness band called the Gear Fit. The Gear Fit comes in two colors, sports a curved AMOLED display, shows you notifications, and tracks things like steps, your heart rate, sleep, and more.
The device resembles a fitness band, but almost creates its own category by tossing in that big curved AMOLED display. This will be a product to keep an eye on for sure. Do we need fitness and smartbands to do more than just show numbers or do they need full displays like this?
The device will arrive in April with the GS5 and the new Gear 2 watches. (more…)
Looking for the full spec list of the new Samsung Galaxy S5? Here you go.
We are looking at a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 5.1-inch FHD Super AMOLED display, 2GB RAM, 16MP camera, 2800mAh battery, LTE, Android 4.4.2, and both fingerprint and heart rate sensors. Pretty cool stuff. (more…)
The livestream of Samsung’s Unpacked event is about to kick off and the company just made the announcement of the Galaxy S5. Yep, it’s official.
The device is coming as early as April to all the carriers you would have hoped for: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and MetroPCS.
You are looking at a device in 4 colors (blue, black, white, and gold) with a 5.1-inch FHD Super AMOLED display, 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16MP camera, Android 4.4.2, and both fingerprint and heart rate sensors.
Full specs here.
We are still looking through all of the goodness, but the full press release can be found below for now. (more…)
We are well aware that the Samsung Galaxy S5 has leaked ahead of today’s big unveiling event, but we’re still going to cover all that happens just like we normally would. And if we’re keeping it regular, that means we’re doing a live blog or more like, live chat. Since the event is being live streamed, this will mostly serve as an opportunity for us to comment as the phone becomes official.
We’ll post some pictures here and there, share thoughts as each feature is talked about in more detail, and react to the phone that should be the biggest deal in mobile for 2014. It should be a good time as usual.
The event kicks off at 11AM Pacific (2PM Eastern).
The livestream has been embedded below. (more…)
Well, folks, there is your Samsung Galaxy S5.
Samsung managed to keep this device hidden for months, but with only hours to go before they officially unveil this 2014 flagship phone, it has been outed. (more…)
We are one day away from the official announcement and unveiling of the Galaxy S5 from Samsung, and of course, someone has already been able to snap a few pictures of the unreleased device. While someone close to Samsung was shooting a video of the Gear 2 smartwatch, it’s plain to see a new Samsung smartphone in three different colors sitting right behind the watch – is it the Galaxy S5? More than likely. (more…)
Samsung won’t announce the Galaxy S5 until Monday, but they took time out of their Saturday night to unveil their newest wearables, the Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. Notice anything missing? That would be the “Galaxy” tag that was included in the original Gear. I guess you could say “it’s confirmed,” the Gear 2 and Gear 2 are separate from Samsung’s flagship line of phones, which also means they don’t run Android.
Say “Hello!” to the “first wearable powered by Tizen based wearable platform.” And that’s all we know about their relationship to Tizen for now, so let’s talk specs and features. (more…)
Courtesy of @evleaks (as usual), we are getting what are believed to be the first two looks at Samsung’s next smartwatch(es), though the name(s) may now be up in the air. The pictures certainly represent two smartwatches that look very similar to last year’s Galaxy Gear, and are accompanied by the names Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo. But @evleaks notes that these may not be Galaxy branded in the end, meaning they could be a separate product category for Samsung. (more…)
