Rumours say Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will be released globally, Galaxy Note 5 only in select markets




(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

Rumours about Samsung‘s latest flagships have been a plenty and we’re likely to see more in the coming weeks before the August 13th announcement. One such rumour has proposed a very interesting scenario, one which might not sit well with Samsung’s faithful – it’s alleged that the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will be released globally, however the device to be announced alongside it, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, is apparently only going to be announced in select markets. From the sounds of it, “select markets” will include places like the US and South Korea where Galaxy Note sales have been historically good.

It’s not an unfamiliar rumour and it actually makes a lot of sense for Samsung – while demand for the Galaxy S6 Edge was great, many people would have passed on the more expensive S6 Edge due to the presence of the cheaper, just as competent, Galaxy S6. Similarly, restricting access to the likely cheaper Galaxy Note 5 would ideally promote greater profit for Samsung, however there are notable downsides for Samsung fans if the Galaxy Note 5 is less available – namely the S-Pen only available on Galaxy Note devices. We do have to remember that this may not be the strategy that Samsung walks out the door with, however it’s come up enough times not to be completely dismissed.


What do you think about this strategy from Samsung? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 leaked in much clearer set of photos


Galaxy-Note5-Nillkin-01

We have seen plenty of great Samsung Galaxy Note 5 renders, but the few actual photos out there leave plenty to be desired. The eminent launch of Samsung’s new over-sized smartphone(s) is coming and we have been hoping to get a clearer look at the handset. Grab a seat and stick around, for that day has finally arrived!

The new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 leaked images come from nowhereelse.fr, a well-recognized French website. This new set of ninja photos consists of 8 shots, displaying the phone in varied angles. Though the pictures are not exactly press quality and do have some photographic noise, they do offer a good look at what we could be seeing.

Galaxy-Note5-Nillkin-04

We are not exactly getting much new information from this leak, but it does corroborate past rumors. The phone seems to sport that metal edge with glass on both the front and back, adopting the same design language the Korean manufacturer introduced with the Samsung Galaxy S6. The metal frame models the same chamfered edges and the back is curved on both sides. Everything is where we expect it to be.

Sadly, it does still seem like Samsung is getting rid of the removable battery and expandable storage option. Is this a big deal to you? I know it is to me, so hit the comments and let us know what you think about this possible change.

Samsung Unpacked event scheduled for August 13th


Samsung has officially announced that it will hold its Unpacked event on August 13th in New York City. We knew this day was coming, as August 12th was rumored heavily, but Samsung stayed quiet. Not much other information has been given, but we all know what is coming from Samsung this time around.

It is widely expected that Samsung will debut two devices the Galaxy Note 5 and the big brother to the Galaxy S6 edge, the Galaxy S6 edge+. This comes ahead of Samsung’s normal launch, which normally occurred at the IFA trade show. It is assumed they want to beat the next iPhone out of the gate and sway some potential buyers.

Both devices are expected to come with 4 GB of RAM and storage started at 32 GB. They will resemble the S6/S6 edge duo with a metal frame flanked by glass on either sides. The Note 5 will include the all-new Exynos 7422 processor and the S-Pen whereas the S6 edge+ will have the older Exynos 7420 processor with no S-Pen.

Now that we have our hands on a solid date for the debut of the next two Samsung devices, we’ll just have to wait on the release date. That will most likely come at the Unpacked event. As of now, both devices are rumored to be released on August 21st, with the Note 5 being released in select markets and the S6 edge+ being released globally.

It’s official – Samsung Unpacked 2015 is taking place this August 13th


samsung-unpacked-2015

Circle your calendars for August 13th, folks. It has just been announced that one of the biggest tech events of the year is to take place this specific date. The true Next Big Things are coming as Samsung gets ready to take the stage that date at Unpacked 2015, in New York City.

While Samsung is not exactly saying what this event is about, we all know what we will be seeing next month. This event is likely about the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the rumored Samsung Galaxy S6 Plus.

Also important to note is the fact that Samsung is going solo for this Note announcement. Traditionally, the Korean manufacturer waits for IFA, in September, to announce its new Galaxy Note phablets. This time around they are moving to the USA, launching their own event and doing it earlier.

Samsung teases an August 13th event with a big, curvy Galaxy


Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked August 13th teaser

That rumor of Samsung holding a phone event in August to beat Apple to the punch? At least some of it is true. The Korean tech giant has announced a second Galaxy Unpacked event that will take place in New York City on August 13th. It’s not saying much about what’s in store, but the curvy, imposing profile in the teaser image hints at the upsized Galaxy S6 Edge+ that we’ve seen in leaks — and of course, the Galaxy Note line is nearly due for its yearly refresh. Whatever shows up, you can be sure that we’ll be there to give you a closer look.

Samsung Unpacked event booked for August 13th, teases a double curved profile




(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

It’s official: Samsung has announced that it has a Samsung Unpacked event booked for August 13th, and teased the event with a minimal representation of a dual curved device. This should be pretty much confirmation that Samsung will be announcing the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus which features a dual-curved edge display, but a dual curve also applies to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 whose back is curved in the same way (as seen in the leak earlier today) and is also expected to be announced.


This announcement of this Samsung Unpacked event confirms the rumoured strategy that Samsung is attempting to beat the new iPhones prior to their announcement sometime in September. By announcing a few weeks early, Samsung is intending to have its devices available by the end of August, or early September, and have their devices in the marketplace before the iPhones hit the ground. It’s a risky strategy, but could be one that pays off as Apple is now directly competing with Samsung in the phablet space with its iPhone 6 Plus (and the inevitable release of the iPhone 6S Plus).

Brand new leaked photos of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 show a close-to-finished product




(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

Leaked photos of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 are getting a fair amount of air time the last few days and the latest set gives us our best yet look at the device, and also looks pretty close to the actual finished product – while other photos have shown prototype devices, this leaked device has the Note 5 logo emblazoned on the back already. Check out all the leaked images below:

Unsurprisingly (or surprisingly), the Note 5 looks exactly as the previous leaks suggested, with a design that kind of looks like the S6 Edge but back-to-front – curved edges on the back. No doubt this will give a better feel in the hand. It’s also notable that the port at the bottom of the device is a microUSB one and not USB Type-C as some were hoping. Probably the last notable feature is the S-Pen, which again looks to be flush with the rest of the device, contrary to what yesterday’s leak of a prototype device suggested – this again raises the possibility of an auto-eject mechanism of some sort.


If the rumours are right, we should be seeing the Note 5, and the Galaxy S6 Edge+, on August 12th or 13th at a Samsung event. What do you think about the finished look of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Invites sent out for August 13 event hosted by Samsung


samsung_galaxy_event_invite_081315

Next month, Samsung will take to New York City for an event that introduces the world to its “latest mobile innovations.” Earlier today, we received the invite for an event being held on August 13 where Samsung is expected to introduce the Galaxy Note 5 and perhaps the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. The image for the invite (seen above) does not give any clear idea of what is to come from Samsung, but the curves could indicate a shift in design language.

The company typically hosts this Unpacked event in September to coincide with IFA; however, Samsung seemingly wants to get in front of Apple and the new iPhone models by making an announcement in August. Rather than making the device available in October, Samsung could release the Galaxy Note 5 sometime in September.
