This is what the Samsung GALAXY S6 might look like – [Leaked Prototype Images]

With the Mobile World Congress less than a month away, everyday we see new rumors surfacing about various OEMs and their next big flagship devices that are to e announced at the mega annual event in Barcelona commencing from March 2nd. A few days back we had mentioned about Samsung’s next flagship device or should we rather say devices now since according to some very strong rumors, Samsung are releasing not one but two variants of its long running line of GALAXY S series with the release of the GALAXY S6 and the S Edge which in our opinion should be somewhat similar to the  Galaxy Note Edge. As of today, our friends at Phone Arena have got their hands on what looks like a prototype of Samsung’s next flagship device. How far these pics are close to the real deal we don’t actually know but if it is in fact true, then the S6, as mentioned earlier, would be wrapped in a metallic uni body frame with a glass rear coating. These are still very early (leaked) images of the device but from the looks of things, they do look quite similar to the GALAXY Alpha series. For now, we’ll just have to wait patiently for the MWC. We’ll keep you guys posted on any further updates and rumors so do stick around. Cheers !!  ...

HTC One M9 to launch on March 1 at MWC 2015

Mobile World Congress 2015 is in two months and invitations have already started rolling out by many OEM’s. HTC in particular have sent an invite for their press conference in Barcelona for March 1. All rumors point to the release of their latest flagship smartphone, the HTC One M9. The invitation does not specify anything, nor give any clues for what HTC has in store for us, but if they keep to their tradition, then it is highly likely we’ll be seeing the successor to the HTC One M8. Rumored specs for the device include a 5 inch 1080p or QHD Super LCD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with 64-bit architecture. The device is said to be very slim around 7mm and housing a 13 MP front camera and a 20MP rear shooter. This might as well pan out to be true considering the “selfie” fever going around this past year. Mark your calendars people for MWC 2015 is sure to give us a lot of...

Samsung Galaxy S6 to launch next month with Metallic Uni-Body [Rumor]

Samsung Galaxy S6 to launch next month with Metallic Uni-Body [Rumor]

Its that time of the year again for all those waiting for Samsung to come up with their next big smartphone! Rumors have it, that Samsung will be launching the Galaxy S6 in Berlin next month! The Galaxy S6 is expected to have a full metallic body or just a rim, similar to the Galaxy Note 4. According to further rumors, there will not be only one, but two variants of the Galaxy S6. The second will have a curved display, somewhat like the Galaxy Note Edge. According to an Italian blog, the Galaxy S6 will come in a metallic uni-body. That means no removable battery. The cheapest device will have in built 64GB of storage with a micro SD slot. Samsung  pride themselves in making one of the best displays for a smartphone, the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge are proof. So, it is safe to expect the Galaxy S6 to at least have a Quad HD 2560×1440 display in both its variants. Software wise, the Galaxy S6 will be running on Android 5.0 Lollipop with an all new Minimalistic TouchWiz UI. Along with the phones, Samsung are also planning to show off their new smart watch. Most probably the smart watch will be running on Samsung’s very own Tizen OS and not on Google’s Android Wear. Samsung really need to make the Galaxy S6 shine as competitors are up-ing their game quite a bit. So are you as excited as we are for Samsung’s next big thing? Keep tunen in to get more updates about the phone as they...

HTC One and Apple iPad Air awarded Best Smartphone and Tablet at the Global Mobile Awards 2014

The Mobile World Congress (MWC) which is considered to be the pinnacle event as far as Mobile devices are concerned proves to be a centre stage for all the leading tech giants of the world to showcase their new (innovative) devices each year. This year was no different and the event managed to attract large crowds from all over the world. With that said, the MWC has a tradition of handing out awards to some of the leading devices which managed to make a difference in the year gone by in both the Smarphone as well as Tablet categories respectively. This year, the award for the Best selling Smartphone of 2013 was given to HTC’s flagship device the HTC One and in the process, ending Samsung’s 2 year unbeaten run in the same category. The device truly deserves all the accolades as it is no doubt truly a thing of beauty made by the Taiwanese Tech giants. Other contenders included the Samsung GALAXY S4, the LG G Pro and the Sony Xperia Z1. Coming to the next award category which is the Best Tablet of 2013, the accolade was received by  Apple’s iPad Air which did manage to raise a few eye brows among most of the Android enthusiasts as none were expecting the iPad Air to be the recipient of this award since the device itself wasn’t even present at the Congress in the first place….well what’s done is done and I’m sure the judges must be having their own good reasons for doing the same. Other nominations in the category included the new NEXUS 7, Samsung GALAXY Note Pro, LG G Pad 8.3 and the Sony Xperia Z1 Tablet.

The Samsung GALAXY S5 – Hands On and Full Product Specs

The Samsung GALAXY S5 – Hands On and Full Product Specs

The day for which the whole world had been anxiously waiting for has finally arrived. As we all know, the annual Mobile World Congress which is taking place in Barcelona, Spain has been a centerfold for phone manufacturer’s to awe one and all with some of the most amazing and breathtaking hand held portable devices; whether its in the form of a Smartphone, Tablet or a Phablet. With that said, Samsung have once again managed to steal the event’s spotlight with the launch of its latest flagship device of the year, the Samsung GALAXY S5 along with the GEAR 2, GEAR 2 Neo and the GEAR Fit. We’ll be reviewing the GEAR Fit soon but for now lets just indulge ourselves into the fantastic world of Samsung’s latest entry in the GALAXY family, the all new GALAXY S5. Design and Body The GALAXY S5 is truly a thing of beauty when you see it for the first time. The device comes wrapped in a sleek looking polycarbonate body with a dimpled, matte soft-touch back which not only makes the device look elegant but also gives a little sturdy look to it as well. Samsung have really outdone themselves this time with the design (and even though the S5 does not come with a metal body as many rumors were suggesting it to be) which is another major improvement from the faux-leather hard plastic used in the recently launched GALAXY S4 Black Edition, the GALAXY Note 3 (both phone and tablet). Besides the new design, the S5 comes with an IP67 certification which makes it resistant to sweat, rain, liquids, sand and dust. Samsung have reiterated the fact that the device is “Water and dust resistant” and not waterproof so if you’re thinking of taking it along with you for a swim, then you’ll have to think again. The device’s USB connector is protected with a small rubber enclosure so as to prevent the water or dust particles from seeping inside. Overall the device weighs in at just 145g and measures up at 142 x 72.5 x 8.1mm. Samsung have also announced a whole bunch of new designer changeable covers that would be sold as separate official accessories for the device. Under the Hood As far as the devices tech specs are concerned, the S5 comes packed with the all new 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 quad-core processor partnered with 2GB DDR3 RAM, 5.1” FHD Super AMOLED (1920 x 1080), 432 ppi dispaly, a 16MP full HD rear camera and a 2MP front facing camera, a 2800mAh battery that should give the S5 enough juice to easily last a day (Samsung claims 21 hours of talk time), micro...
