Samsung's newly launched Samsung Pay has suffered an early blow in one of the biggest economic markets as Verizon has revealed it will not offer support for the mobile payment system. Samsung Pay is coming to the United States on September 28th and out of the four major carriers in the country T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T will be offering the service.
Earlier in the week we told you about a new Samsung series that was due for launch later in the year, the Galaxy O range. There has been speculation as to where the new handsets would fit into Samsung's portfolio, after-all the company has a lot of smartphones at various different price points. A new report now suggests that the Galaxy O will be a virtual reality oriented smartphone created in conjunction with Oculus Rift... So, Galaxy Oculus then?
We revealed last week that Samsung will not be launching the Galaxy Note 5 in Europe, saying the old continent will be focused on the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus instead. However, the Edge Plus is not the Note 5, it lacks the rich features, performance, and S Pen, and needless to say plenty in Europe (and even non-Europeans like us) are miffed about it.
We told you last week about Samsung's bombshell announcement that the Galaxy Note 5 will not be coming to the UK or Europe this year. Man, are we still pissed about that! It seems that the phablet flagship will arrive on that continent next year (we hope, Samsung has yet to confirm), but plenty of other nations around the world have been pencilled in for the S Pen packing Galaxy Note 5.
Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, Galaxy A, Galaxy J, and myriad other models. Samsung already has a pretty significant handset portfolio, and in fact the company has trimmed and streamlined its output. That will not stop the South Korean launching more smartphones, with a new series of handsets apparently being prepped for launch.
As expected, Samsung unveiled a new variant of its Galaxy S6 Edge in the form of the beefier and more powerful Galaxy S6 Edge +. Think of this as the big brother of the first model, a big brother that has been shown even more love perhaps, ready to take on everything with market leading specs and enhanced software.
Sad news for Samsung fans in the United Kingdom as the Korean company confirmed that it will not be launching the Galaxy Note 5 in the country until 2016. That breaks a tradition as the previous four Note smartphones all landed in the UK at the same time as other regions, while the nation is still one of Samsung?s primary markets, including being the biggest in Europe.
Samsung's latest phablet flagship, the Galaxy Note 5, has been announced. The Korean company launched its new smartphone yesterday at a big event, and while all the info is already out there, perhaps you like your details in moving images and sound. Yes, we are talking about video, so if you missed Sammy's Unpacked Event to launch the Galaxy Note 5, you can check it out in full right here.
So, Samsung raised the curtain on its Galaxy Note 5 flagship and we have been getting up close and personal with the device to bring you the lowdown. Samsung has decided to explore an evolutionary approach with this handset instead of going for a huge leap, and as a result there are certainly disappointments here, but those gripes are not the be all and end all of what is an amazing product. The Galaxy Note 5 is Samsung's best smartphone ever, with some caveats.
A Samsung smartphone has passed through benchmark database AnTuTu and smashed the record with that software, with an amazing score of 95,972. Meaningless numbers for some of you I imagine, but this is a stunning score that blitzes the current record holder. That device is the Samsung Galaxy S6, but the company's upcoming Galaxy Note 5 has recently recorded a score of 69,702 pre-launch.
