With the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 due to land in a few weeks' time at the IFA trade show in Berlin, Germany, the anticipation surrounding it is high. The leaks have been pouring out in recent days, including our first look at the handset, and retailers are getting in on the act now.
One of the more fanciful rumours surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was that it would come with a folded screen, giving the device three viewing panels. As it turns out, the design of the Note 4 is a little more conventional than that, but that does not mean there will never be a Note device with a folding screen.
Virtual reality has been heralded as the next frontier in gaming, while companies like Oculus Rift are paving the way for the tech to be used in other applications too. Sony unveiled its gaming oriented VR set earlier in the year and it is widely thought that Samsung will announced its own virtual reality project sometime this year, likely at the IFA trade show in Berlin next month.
It is finally here. One of the most discussed smartphones of this or any year has been launched as Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Alpha. The phone has been consistently leaked and talked about over the last two months, generating the kind of attention reserved for proper flagships. As we started to expect though, the Alpha is not a flagship at all, despite its slick looks.
The Samsung Galaxy Z was a device that caused plenty of interest in the MobileBurn offices when it was unveiled a few months ago. I wrote at the time that in my opinion it is one of the nicest looking devices from Samsung in a long time, while its specs were very good, and it run on Samsung's own Tizen operating system.
There have been plenty of leaks concerning the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 4, some outlandish and others probable. We have a good idea of the specs the handset will boast, although the design as so far eluded us, paving the way for some bold claims. Now we can lay eyes on the Galaxy Note 4 for the first time, with this leaked shot said to be of the as yet unofficial device.
Yes, we managed to go a whole week without a story on the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, but with the handset set to launch before the end of September we have some more information ready to go. This time a leak seems to show the official specs for what will be the Korean company's first smartphone built from metal.
Apple is a brand based in the United States, while its iPhone is the most popular single handset on the market, but research has shown that carriers and retailers would prefer to sell you a Samsung. A study conducted by Kantar Worldpanel revealed that carriers and companies in the United States would sell a consumer a Samsung product before an Apple one.
If you thoughts Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 would be the only phablet the company would launch this fall then you were very wrong. This is Samsung after-all, a company that just builds and builds new handsets, and it seems the company has a mid-range large screen device heading to the market, for those who do not have deep enough pockets for the Note 4 we presume.
Samsung has always released its new Note phablet devices at the IFA trade show in Berlin and 2014 will be no different as the Korean company will unveil the Galaxy Note 4 on September 3rd. However, whereas in previous years there has been a sizeable amount of time between the Note launching at IFA and then eventually rolling out to the market for consumers to buy.
