The Samsung Galaxy S 4 on T-Mobile is becoming the Galaxy S 4 with Android 4.4 thanks to an update going out in stages right now. T-Mobile has confirmed that the Galaxy S 4 is receiving a 388 MB update delivered through an over-the-air update or the Samsung Kies software for PC or Mac OS. The phone has the improved stability and slight performance gains that comes with Android 4.4, as well as new messaging options, camera settings, and wireless printing.
Samsung has posted its own official hands-on video to detail the features of the Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 and Gear Fit, the two wearable devices unveiled a few weeks ago.
Samsung has yet another music streaming service to deliver the latest hits to smartphones. In addition to its internal music app that ships with every phone and its former Music Hub powered by 7digital, Android's leading manufacturer today unveiled Milk Music, a Slacker-powered streaming music app that is exclusive to Galaxy devices in the United States.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro has a desktop-inspired interface thanks to tools like Multi Window and the new Magazine-style layout. The Android tablet with a 12.2-inch HD display also has a laptop-inspired price.
Here's another difference between the Samsung Galaxy S5 Fingerprint Scanner and the Apple iPhone 5S Touch ID: developers will actually be able to incorporate the scanner into their apps on the Galaxy S5.
The presence of a fingerprint sensor was not surprising when Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5 yesterday. What's more surprising is that the sensor will be used to introduce a way to make payments using the fingerprint scanner.
It was rumored recently that Samsung would release an early successor to its Samsung Galaxy Gear smart watch, and those rumors have proven truthful with an announcement late last night that Samsung has two new editions of the Gear, both running Tizen OS instead of Android.
Samsung has a history of mocking Apple products as a way of trumpeting the value of its devices. The new Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 commercial is the latest commercial to follow that trend. Watch both videos here.
It might seem strange that Samsung would choose to release a Galaxy Gear follow-up only five months after the original first went on sale, but the next smartwatch will be different from the first thanks to a new operating system.
Android 4.4 KitKat has finally made its way to the Samsung Galaxy S 4. Sprint has begun updating its variant of Samsung 2013 flagship, so the phone should see some noticeable improvements.
