Samsung explains Galaxy Note 4 gap as a feature

Samsung took some heat over the last week because of a perceived design problem with the new Galaxy Note 4 phablet.

Samsung’s new Tizen smartphone to land in November

You may remember the Samsung Galaxy Z from earlier in the year or you may not. You could be forgiven considering the sheer amount of smartphones the Korean company releases, but this was the one that was going to run Samsung and Intel’s Tizen platform. However, the Galaxy Z was killed at the last minute, but Samsung is now preparing another device that will become the first smartphone to run the Tizen ecosystem. Tizen is the platform...
