Samsung To Use Own Camera Module For The Galaxy S6 [Rumor]

When it comes to camera modules in smartphones, Sony is actually doing pretty well for themselves in that regard. They have made modules used in Apple’s iPhone lineup, as well as Samsung’s Galaxy S-lineup as well, but if the rumors are to be believed, it looks like Samsung and Sony could be parting ways with the Galaxy S6.

Samsung Releases TecTiles 2 NFC Tags With Galaxy S4 Support For $15

HTC President Bashes Samsung Galaxy S4 Event

If you didn’t watch last night’s Samsung Galaxy S4 unveiling in New York City, we can tell you the entire experience was rather…. interesting. Much of the event was spent highlighting a number of fictional scenarios where a specific S4 feature would be perfect in said scenario, and less about the actual device itself. While the entire experience was meant to entertain, it made HTC President Jason MacKenzie feeling pretty […]


Samsung Teams Up With HP To Offer Seamless Printing With Galaxy S4

Printing a document from your mobile device could be more of a hassle than its worth as the majority of us don’t even know what the first step would be in order to make such a magical operation occur. 3rd-party applications may work, but they often require dedicated applications to be used, which certainly doesn’t make the process seamless by any means. HP is looking to make the process as […]

Samsung Galaxy S Android-powered camera could debut at IFA 2012

We saw the Nikon Coolpix S800c embrace the Android operating system despite being a camera first and foremost, so it is not surprising to hear of other hardware manufacturers making the attempt to jump aboard the Android-powered camera bandwagon – and Samsung might very well make such an announcement at IFA 2012 which is happening in Berlin, Germany, through the introduction of their Galaxy S camera to the world. The […]


Galaxy S receives Ice Cream Sandwich via Cyanogenmod 9

Samsung might have thrown in the towel when it comes to updating the Galaxy S smartphone to run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but that does not mean that the homebrew community feel the same. No sir, as evident by what Cyanogenmod 9 offers – this latest alpha build for the Galaxy S has already been uploaded to the project’s servers, and do bear in mind that this is […]


Samsung “Value Pack” is Ice Cream Sandwich with a “Lite” version of TouchWiz

We’ve previously reported that Samsung will not be bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to the Galaxy S phone, and will be delivering a “Value Pack” instead. However it looks like all that has been a misunderstanding according to the folks at XDA-developers. One of their readers, a Korean-speaker, read the Korean announcement which had its original message lost in translation. Apparently the message was supposed to state that the “Value Pack” […]


Samsung Galaxy S may receive Value Pack update instead of Android 4.0

Just yesterday we reported that due to overwhelming negative responses from their customers, Samsung announced that they would rethink their decision about not including the Galaxy Tab and Galaxy S in their Android 4.0 upgrade plans.
