AT&T started rolling out Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the newer versions that removes "Interruptions" too. While it is fully expected that Samsung's newest phablet flagship is getting the latest version of Android, the fact the Galaxy Note 3 is also receiving Lollipop today is a little more surprising.
The LG G Flex 2 has been out in the wild for a couple of months and is available in the United States through Sprint. However, the Now Network's exclusive hold on the curved screen smartphone is coming to end though as US Cellular has announced that it will start selling the G Flex 2 as well. The carrier will begin selling the device March 26 (Thursday) and will even undercut Sprint on price.
Microsoft makes a lot of money from Android, and the company is certainly going to be looking for ways to cross platforms more often in the future. Teaming up with the biggest Android name, Samsung, is certainly one way to go about it. When Samsung launched the Galaxy S6 earlier this month, one of the big surprises was the inclusion of several Microsoft apps and services pre-installed on the Android running flagship.
AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is going to be receiving a new version of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the same one that was rolled out for the device in the Netherlands recently. This newer build of Android 5.0 gets rid of the much maligned "Interruptions" that replaced "Mute" on Google's OS. Muting the device now needs to be done by entering the Quick Settings Menu, instead of using the volume.
The pre-order cycle for the Samsung Galaxy S6 is in full swing now, with the UK the latest nation to have the handset available for pre-orders. Well, not just yet actually as the handset will be starting its per-order run on March 20th, with consumers able to register their interest and have Samsung's Galaxy S6 immediately when it launches.
Samsung said back last year that it would refocus its smartphone strategy and release less products. Since then, the company has proceeded to launch a lot of devices, rather flying in the face of that previous statement. However, the Korean company has certainly streamlined output into easy new series? and shows no signs of stopping with an apparent Galaxy H series on the way.
Samsung's recently launched Galaxy S6 is slowly moving around the world, on a pre-order basis at least. The latest country where consumers can now lay down their cash for the upcoming handset is Canada, with the Galaxy S6 available for registrations now. As you would expect for a Samsung flagship, the Galaxy S6 is finding its way to just about every Canadian carrier and retailer.
Now that Samsung has launched the Galaxy S6, some of its older handsets are becoming even more of an enticing option. Take the very good (if a little uninspired Galaxy S5), the device was a full flagship a few weeks ago, but it is now having a price cut to make way for the GS6. United States based network Sprint has a stellar offer on at the moment that involves the Galaxy S5.
The Galaxy S5 Mini has been available for some time, and indeed it will likely be replaced by a Galaxy S6 variant in the coming months. However, the handset is only now coming to AT&T, with the Galaxy S5 Mini making its debut on the US network on March 20th (this Friday).
The Samsung Galaxy S6 will be rolling out around the world in April, and we are slowly learning how much the handset will cost in certain regions. If you are in the Qatar, Bahrain, or Kuwait and are looking to buy Samsung's latest flagship, you can now find out how much it will cost. No, the South Korean company has not revealed the price, but a leaked document has shown how much the single and dual SIM variant will cost in those countries
