Weeks ago, Samsung had revealed that the Galaxy Alpha was intended to be the first device in the South Korean phone maker's upcoming A series of handsets. This soon-to-be-launched new generation of smartphones is expected to have new features, and some of them are already highlighted in the Galaxy Alpha, which was released just last month in August.
By launching four new products, Samsung certainly made the most of its opportunity at the 2014 Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) trade show held in Berlin. One of the new products they launched is the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the follow-up to the Note 3, which the South Korea-based mobile manufacturing company unveiled twelve months ago.
Without dwelling too much on the new smartphone's specifications, Samsung showed a bit more enthusiasm in expounding on the Note 4's features, namely its 176-gram weight, its 8.5-mm thickness, and its LTE category 6 capability.
More than a year ago, Samsung introduced a prototype of a smartphone that featured a curved screen which wraps around the right-handed area. Called Youm, that prototype eventually would give way to another curved-screen Samsung handset -- the Galaxy Note Edge, which is expected to be released this fall.
Nokia announced last Friday that the Finnish mobile manufacturing company has teamed up with Samsung in order to bring its Here app to Android-run Galaxy smartphones and to Samsung's Tizen-based smartwatches.
For those not in the know, Here is a mapping app that Nokia developed and kept, even when software giant Microsoft purchased the Finland-based phone maker's mobile device segment. The Here app was only available for devices that run on Windows 8 or Windows Phone.
When the Samsung Galaxy Alpha was announced earlier this month, many geeked out over the soon-to-hit-store-shelves device's metal frame. The South Korea-based company is typically known for its plastic-clad mobile devices, so having a metal frame was definitely a welcome change for fans of the mobile manufacturing giant.
When Samsung recently introduced Galaxy Alpha, its newest addition to the Galaxy smartphone line, much excitement brewed especially with regards to the smartphone's stylish new look. Now, consumers will even get more stoked about the soon-to-be-available product when they learn that it will be using a revolutionary smartphone chip.
After much anticipation, Samsung finally released the most recent addition to its Galaxy smartphone line -- the Galaxy Alpha. The South Korean telecoms giant's newest smartphone offering features a slim, compact design that boasts a stylish metal frame and elegant finish. While its new, sleek look should turn heads, Samsung is quick to note that with the Galaxy Alpha's powerful hardware and features, it should provide customers with a user experience that combines sophisticated design with reliable functionality.
The rivalry between wireless phone makers Apple and Samsung is stronger than ever, and as a result, September will be a huge month for smart phone enthusiast. As stated in our previous blog, Apple is planning to announce their newest phone, the iPhone 6, on September 9th. Seemingly in an effort to take the wind out of Apple’s sails, the South Korean tech giant has sent out invitations to its "Unpacked 2014," where multiple sources have confirmed the release of the Galaxy Note 4. Samsung will be making their big announcement simultaneously in 3 cities: Berlin, Beijing, and New York.
Until the last few years, cell phone manufacturers were competing with one another to see who could make the smallest phone. Consumers were under the impression that small and compact meant cool and portable. Over the last few years people have changed the way they use their phone, which means that the demands of their phone has changed too. The increasing amount of people that use their smartphones for watching video has led to the demand for an increase in screen size. This new trend does not seem to be going away anytime soon.
The highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 was just unveiled at another one of Samsung's famous Unpacking Events in Barcelona Spain at Mobile World Congress 2014. Some of the things we learned about this new flagship smartphone from Samsung are that it has some new hardware and will be running some new software, but we also learned that most of the new GS5 has come from its predecessor the Galaxy S4.
