Earlier in the week, the guys over at PhoneArena conducted a poll and asked its readers whether they thought that "Samsung's dominion over the smartphone market coming to an end?"
Android 5.0 Lollipop is making its way around the mobile world with numerous handsets now rocking the latest and greatest mobile software from Mountain View. However, if you are toting the brand new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy Note Edge you may not be getting Android 5.0 at all. Don't worry though, it is not half as bad as it first looks.
Samsung makes so many devices and has so many smartphone ranges that it is hard to keep up. Take for example the Galaxy U line of handsets, another new series that has been in development alongside the A series, E series, as well as an overhaul of the S range. It is a muddling array of devices to be sure, so I am glad that Samsung has reportedly decided to ditch the Galaxy U series at the development stage.
Samsung's back to the drawing board "Project Zero" Galaxy S6 is the company's upcoming flagship and arguably a vitally important device in judging where the fortunes of the Korean giant lie. This year's Galaxy S5 was not a disaster by any stretch but it came alongside a general cooling in relations between Samsung and the consumer, the S6 is the device that is supposed to reignite the spark.
Android 5.0 Lollipop is finding its way to more and more devices, with even some third party OEM built handsets getting the latest and greatest from Google. The platform is now making its way to the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition, the version of Sammy's 2013 flagship that runs the stock Android experience as Google intended it.
Samsung has been oft rumoured to be going back to the drawing board with the Galaxy S6, the company's next flagship smartphone that is arguably its most important ever. It?s true that Samsung will redesign the S range and will pack it with the best specs, but one much rumoured handset, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, is not being made after all.
We brought you news about Samsung's new budget Galaxy E range two days ago, the Korean company's new series that will go up against Xiaomi in China and other companies in the rest of the world. The devices will be part of Samsung?s new dawn of re-creating its huge success and the Galaxy E series will carry the same design ethos as the Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy A series.
Samsung's first ever Tizen has been close to launching for months, it was expected in November when Samsung explained itself as to why the company has taken so long to release the device.
Samsung's Galaxy Grand 2 was launched late last year and through the first half of 2014 it has been one of the company's better selling devices. In a year of falling sales and profits, a success is good news for Samsung and the Korean giant is going to capitalize on it with a new sequel which we think is aptly named the Galaxy Grand 3.
Samsung is not doing a good job of keeping its Galaxy S6 under wraps. The company's next smartphone flagship is probably a few months from launch but the early working prototypes are showing up on benchmarks, with the second occurrence of this yesterday. Samsung is reportedly readying the production process, but thanks to a couple of AnTuTu benchmarks, we already know what the specs of the S6 will be.
