Samsung’s Galaxy Golden 3 Flip Phone

Ah the good old flip phone, the form factor that refuses to go away. It still amazes us how these handsets have a market in Asia from companies like Samsung and LG. The former Korean giant has just had its latest flip phone passed through TENAA in China, the Samsung Galaxy Golden 3. The device manages to marry the form of a feature flip phone with the specs and hardware of a mid-range smartphone. The Galaxy Golden 3 comes with a 720p...

Samsung Galaxy View Hits U.S. Market

We are not completely sold on Samsung’s new 18.4-inch Galaxy View tablet. Where in the market does it fit in? It is not a true tablet offering because it is not portable enough, while some Android apps will not refit to the screen properly. Likewise, it is not a PC alternative because it is not rich enough in features, cannot run all programs, and is simply not as productivity minded. Either way, we are willing to give the Galaxy View...

Samsung Continuing to Restructure Mobile Division

2014 was a rocky year for Samsung as it saw sales decline and then inevitably profits slipped too.

Samsung will Leave Smartphone Business in Five Years?

We do not necessarily believe the following, or in fact, more to the point, we flat out think its bull***t.

Of course, perhaps Bajarin has the foresight that we simply lack, but we are talking about the largest smartphone brand on the planet, a company that turned over...

Samsung Galaxy S7 Coming with 12MP Camera?

Samsung has been rumored to be interested in using Sony’s image sensors for the Galaxy S7 flagship that will launch early next year. However, a report today suggests that whether the Korean giant uses Sony or goes alone, it is interested in possibly reducing megapixels and not increasing them. A poster on social network Weibo claims that Samsung is seriously considering using a 12 megapixel lens, which would be smaller than the 16MP...

Sony EXMOR Sensor in Samsung’s Galaxy S7?

Sony being a dominant force in the mobile industry is a novel idea, after-all the company’s Xperia division suffers low sales and the division does not make money. However, the Japanese giant is a dominant force, accounting for a market majority in the image sensor industry. With Sony lenses in many rival brands, the company is growing again after years of financial worry. Samsung is one company who has largely steered clear of Sony’s...
