Samsung Galaxy S5 now available at MetroPCS

Exactly one week ago, Samsung released the Galaxy S5 in over 120 countries and territories across the globe. However, that doesn’t mean that all the carriers in those countries started selling the Korean company’s “next big thing” on that day. The rollout is still happening as you read this, and the latest carrier to offer the Galaxy S5 is MetroPCS. If you wanted to buy a Galaxy S5 from MetroPCS, you did have...

High-end Tizen smartphone from Samsung out by the end of June, Android-based smartwatch in the works

Samsung’s oft-delayed first Tizen smartphone could actually be headed for a release this year. Sure, that’s not very believable, given the company’s track record on the matter and how many times we have so far heard that this mythical Tizen beast was just around the corner, but this time it might just be. No, really. This time it’s real. Or at least that’s what a Samsung executive told Reuters. The South...

Samsung Galaxy S5 Zoom may get announced on April 29 as the Galaxy K

Last year, Samsung launched a few derivatives based (somewhat loosely) on its flagship smartphone at the time, the Galaxy S4. Hence we had the Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy S4 Active, and Galaxy S4 Zoom. The last in that list was basically just an S4 Mini coupled with a consumer-grade digital camera, complete with optical zoom. This year, things may be a little bit different. Samsung is still going to cater to those enamored with...

Samsung Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III Android 4.4 KitKat updates still coming, new time frame outed

So far, Samsung has only brought Android 4.4 KitKat updates to the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy S4 – its two newest flagships (the Galaxy S5 doesn’t count, since that already runs the newest software version). Naturally then, people are wondering when such updates may be made available for other, older handsets such as the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S III. Wondering the same thing, someone in Samsung’s native South...

Verizon now finally taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S5, BOGO deal in tow

Well, it looks like the Ativ SE isn’t the only new Samsung smartphone that Verizon has decided to put up for pre-order today. The latest Windows Phone from the Korean company is joined in Big Red’s portfolio by the much-anticipated Galaxy S5, which is now finally available on pre-order. Other big carriers have started their pre-orders for the Galaxy S5 last month, but for some reason Verizon wanted to be last in line, it...

Samsung’s first Windows Phone 8.1 handset will be the Ativ Core

A couple of days ago Microsoft officially introduced Windows Phone 8.1, the latest version of its mobile operating system. At the same event, Nokia unveiled its first smartphones running that variation of the OS, namely the Lumia 930 and the Lumia 630/635. Today, Verizon has started taking pre-orders for the Samsung Ativ SE, though that handset still runs Windows Phone 8, because the newest software wasn’t available in time for...
