Samsung has finally gotten around to rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow for its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. It's just as well really as the current flagships are about to be replaced by the Galaxy S7 range at the end of February at MWC. So, at least many Galaxy S6 owners will have Marshmallow by then.
Samsung's market lead has declined in recent years, the company sells fewer devices and has seen profits for its smartphone division take a hit as a result. Of course, Sammy still thrives as the number one smartphone brand in the world, but the company is not tasting the sheer dominance it once did. It seems that one market particularly has caused Samsung's problems, China.
Aside from official confirmation, most details regarding the Samsung Galaxy S7 are known, from design to specs. One of the most consistent rumors has been the one that the flagship will launch at MWC 2016 in Barcelona at the end of the month. That rumor now seems to have been confirmed by tipster Evan Blass, who has posted an image of the upcoming invite for the launch event.
Last year's Galaxy S6 was Samsung overhauling its flagship range. It was a ground up build that aimed to change the company's direction, something it succeeded in doing with its premium metal and glass construction. With that in mind, it was unlikely that Sammy would embark on a radical design shift again for the follow up Galaxy S7, and so it proves as these reportedly official renders prove.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 is gearing up for its big launch, likely to happen at the company's pre-MWC press event in Barcelona at the end of February. Of course, leaks have been plentiful regarding the upcoming flagship, but now the benchmarks are trickling in and revealing the specs of the Galaxy S7. As expected, it?s a cutting edge handset.
Samsung has announced its fourth quarter financial results and the company is thriving overall, although the Samsung Mobile Division continues to lose sales. However, the company confounded the general trend in the tablet market by seeing an increase in unit sales.
We have heard plenty about the Samsung Galaxy S7, the company's latest (and upcoming) flagship smartphone. It seems that Sammy is cooking up another beastly masterpiece, and one that may be at the upper limits of battery life expectations in the current market.
Samsung makes a lot of money (second only to Apple in the mobile industry), but the number one smartphone manufacturer in the world also spends a lot of money. As well as having the largest advertising budget of any mobile company, Sammy also spends the most on research and development (R&D).
Samsung's upcoming budget smartphone, the Galaxy J5 (2016), has made its way through the GFXBench benchmark software and as is always the case has left a trail of specs in its wake
The modestly spec'd but affordable Samsung Galaxy J3 is starting to roll out in the United States, with the smartphone available from today with prepaid carrier Virgin Mobile. Sprint?s other prepaid carrier Boost Mobile will also be getting the J3 starting next Monday (Jan. 18), while AT&T?s Cricket will land the handset soon.
