      [glow=red]Gear VR: This is What Happens When You Put It On[/glow]

      http://global.samsungtomorrow.com

      Gear VR
      At IFA 2014, we brought you the exclusive first look at the new Gear VR, Samsung's first reality headset. We also shared an infographic on the key features of the Gear VR and an editorial on what we can expect from it. However, we still haven’t showed you what it feels like to wear the Gear VR. So here you go. This is a video of the inside of the Gear VR recorded with the Galaxy K zoom. Buckle up.

      The device was bad anyway now this makes it ridiculous.

      I made my decision and will still get the note 4 even if it's not what I hoped for it will still be a great device. I got it on order already so no turning back :D

      (Stupid me couldn't wait again)

      some other news from samsung the A7 A5 and A3 series

      [spoiler2]Samsung Galaxy A7, A5, and A3 get rumored prices
      24 September, 2014 | Comments (21) | Post your comment

      Tags: Samsung, Android, Rumors

      Over the past week or so three new Samsung smartphones got leaked. These bear the model numbers SM-A300, SM-A500, and SM-A700, and they will probably launch as the Galaxy A3, Galaxy A5 (pictured below), and Galaxy A7, respectively.

      Now we have some rumored price points for each of them, along with some interesting details about the A7. It turns out that this particular device may only be launched in select countries, and not become widely available as the other two.

      Since its name and model number both seem to imply that it will be the best specced out of this trio, such a decision by Samsung is intriguing for sure. It may be that the company doesn't believe in the Galaxy A7's prospects of selling well everywhere. Or we could be looking at the exact opposite - it being afraid that the A7 would eat into the sales of the Galaxy Alpha.

      Either way, the Galaxy A7 is said to cost around $450 to $500. The Galaxy A5 will be priced at $400 to $450, while the Galaxy A3 will be the cheapest of the bunch at $350 to $400. All of these prices are obviously for unlocked models.

      All three Galaxy A handsets are going to feature built-in LTE connectivity, and they could all get official by the end of this month. They should have similar designs to the Galaxy Alpha as well as a premium feel, though whether metal will be used to achieve that is not yet clear.[/spoiler2]

      Note s4 edge limited edition

      In just a couple of days Samsung will start selling the Galaxy Note 4. But if you've been patiently waiting for the other Note that was unveiled at IFA earlier this month, you'll have to continue to be patient.

      According to a Samsung official, the Galaxy Note Edge will be treated by the company as a limited edition concept. This is a nice way of saying that it will forever be a niche device.


      Samsung apparently plans to ramp up production for the Edge pretty slowly, and it doesn't look like it will be launched in many places at once - rather, the rollout will go country by country. The company expects to sell around a million units this year.

      We've already heard that the Note Edge will be quite expensive, and that would clearly relegate it into niche device territory, and definitively so. What's becoming clear now is that this was always Samsung's plan.

      So perhaps we should think about the Galaxy Note Edge more in terms of being a successor to last year's (also very niche) Galaxy Round, and not as a higher-end version of the Note 4 (thanks to its unique screen).

      In South Korea, the Note Edge might be out in late October, while it will only make it to other territories in November. However, if Samsung staggers its rollout, then it could very well be 2015 before it's out in most regions.[/spoiler2]

      Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is now available for pre-order in the United Kingdom. The online retailer Clove is now taking pre-orders for the flagship phablet with curved display.

      As expected, the handset is anything but cheap - Clove is asking £650 for it with VAT included. Without VAT, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge costs £541.67.

      Samsung Galaxy Note Edge carries a premium over its conventionally designed sibling, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Clove is asking £575 for the latter with VAT included. This should hardly catch anyone by surprise, as the Note Edge is officially labeled as a niche device.[/spoiler2]

      [glow=red]Exclusive Preview: Android L on Samsung Galaxy S5[/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      Android L on S5
      At Google I/O 2014, Google announced the next iteration of its Android operating system – Android L. As the operating system itself was still in early stages, we only got a sneak peak at a few of the upcoming features. Even the name, Android L, is just a placeholder for now, and Google hasn’t made the final branding public yet. However, our sources have confirmed that it will eventually be called Android Lollipop, as rumoured previously. Google hasn’t released Android Lollipop yet, but as you probably know, OEMs get early access to the source code.

      Thanks to our sources, we managed to get our hands on an early Android L – LRW58J – test build for the Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F). Initially, we wanted to make the firmware available for every Samsung fanatic out there. However, after testing it for two days, we decided that it was not suitable for every day use, as it contains a plethora of bugs and is slow as a turtle, so we won’t be publishing the build online. But, today, we will be giving you folks an exclusive preview of the new look and features of the TouchWiz-fied Android L. Even though the build itself is in very early stages, considering Samsung has just started testing it for the Galaxy S5, you will at least be able to get an idea on how Samsung is implementing TouchWiz into Android L, considering a lot of things need to undergo major revamps due to new design guidelines from Google.

      [BBvideo 560,340]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2yBLqnokjPM[/BBvideo]

      In Android L, Google has completely overhauled the look of the operating system, calling it Material Design. In short, the whole UI feels alive and natural to touch, and it’s the best thing that ever happened to Android. Sadly, OEMs are still using their old interfaces on top of Android L, which kind of ruins the experience because they were designed using the old Holo design guidelines. We were actually really curious to see what changes would Samsung do to its TouchWiz interface in order to comply with Google’s brand new design guidelines, and we must say, so far we like what Samsung has done with its proprietary user-interface. Samsung has finally ditched the good old blue theme, which it has been using since the Galaxy S2 for a brand new white dye. To be honest, this change was long overdue. Even though white doesn’t play well with power consumption and AMOLED displays, it most certainly is more pleasing to the eye than the horrible blue. As the builds are still in an early stage, a lot of inconsistency can be seen in the UI, which indicates Samsung’s software engineers have a lot of work to do.

      The Korean giant’s proprietary system-apps – Dialler, Messages, Memo, Clock etc – have been developed from scratch with Material Design guidelines. However, currently, there are no in-app animations, so floating buttons etc don’t do much other than just act as a simple button. My personal favourite feature of Android Lollipop is its new lock screen. Previously, the lock screen only showed the date and time, but now it shows notifications as well. However, you can enable and disable notifications of any desired application, and can also limit the notification content displayed on the lock screen. In stock Android, you can view a maximum of four notifications on the lock screen, however, on TouchWiz we can view only a maximum of two. The number of viewable notifications had to be decreased due to Samsung’s unlocking effects, and Samsung, if you’re reading this, change it back to four! Due to bringing notifications to the lock screen, Google had to sacrifice lock screen widgets, so now you can’t put widgets on your lock screen — goodbye DashClock.

      Google has brought in heads-up notifications to Android L, which will alert users to incoming calls, messages and low battery without interrupting their current activity, which is, literally, a lifesaver feature for gamers. Samsung has built in a handy clipboard tool which keeps a history of your screenshots and copied text - this feature is usually available in custom ROMs, but it’s nice to see Samsung implementing this specific feature. Android L brings in MirrorLink support as well. MirrorLink allows users to mirror their device’s screen to their car’s display, though we were unable to test out this feature at the moment.

      Performance-wise, Android L uses the new ART runtime, so it should be faster and more lag-free than KitKat, but as the build we have is in the alpha stage, it’s even slower than the stock GS5 KitKat firmware. So, at the moment, we can’t really comment on the overall performance of the device.

      [glow=red]Samsung Galaxy Note 4 to launch in 140 countries by end of October[/glow]
      [spoiler2]Samsung reveals Galaxy Note 4 release dates for various regions
      6

      Follow: PhonesGalaxy Note 4


      The Galaxy Note 4 has been available in South Korea since September 26th, and Samsung had announced that it would be launching the phablet in more than 140 countries by the end of October. Now, the Korean manufacturer is offering a more detailed look at when the Galaxy Note 4 will be released in various markets around the world. Samsung has posted an image on its Facebook account that uses colored dots to mark the launch date for different regions – it’s not exactly a very clear representation, but it should give users a general idea of when they can expect to be able to buy the Galaxy Note 4.

      For most of the major markets, including the US, Canada, the UK and other European countries, and India, the Galaxy Note 4 will be released in the week starting October 10 (India and the UK should get it on the 10th, while the US and Canada will get it a week later, something that has already been confirmed.) Countries like Singapore and Thailand will also see a release in the second week of the month, though South American consumers will need to wait till November 5th before they can get their hands on the phone.

      Take a look at the image below to find out when your region is getting the fourth-generation Galaxy Note flagship, and don’t forget to read our hands-on experience with the device.

      [glow=green]Samsung Gear VR’s price and release date leaked in an alleged internal document [/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      Gear VR price
      Guys over at GForGames have been able to dig up an alleged internal document belonging to Samsung which reveals the price and release date of the Gear VR. According to the information available in the document, the Gear VR will be released on 1st of December in South Korea with a price tag of 200,000 Won, which translates to about $187. The document is believed to help the customer service employees in answering some potential questions which might be asked by costumers. This information should be taking with a pinch of salt as we can’t comment on the authenticity of the report.

      The Gear VR is a virtual reality headset similar to that of the Oculus Rift but instead, it requires the Galaxy Note 4 to be fitted inside the headset for it to work. The Gear VR was unveiled alongside the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge last month during Samsung’s event last month but without any concrete details about its price or release date.

      [glow=green]Leaked Samsung roadmap details KitKat updates for 13 Galaxy devices[/glow]

      www.cultofandroid.com

      Android 4.4.4 KitKat update on your Galaxy smartphone
      Still waiting for Google’s latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat update on your Galaxy smartphone? A leaked Samsung roadmap details the South Korean company’s release plans for 13 different handsets, including the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy S4, the Galaxy Note 3, and the Galaxy Note 2.

      Samsung’s been slow to deliver Android 4.4.4 to a whole bunch of smartphones, but that doesn’t mean the company has forgotten about them. In fact, two of its more recent handsets — the Galaxy S5 and the Note 3 — are scheduled to get the update this month, while many more will get the release in November.

      Here’s the full roadmap:

      Galaxy S5 — SM-G900I: October
      Galaxy S5 — SM-G900F: October
      Galaxy Note 3 — SM-N900: October
      Galaxy Note 3 LTE — SM-N9005: October
      Galaxy S4 — GT-I9500: November
      Galaxy S4 LTE — GT-I9505: November
      Galaxy Note 3 Neo — SM-N750: November
      Galaxy S4 Mini Duos — SM-I9192: November
      Galaxy S4 Mini — SM-I9190: November
      Galaxy Grand 2 Duos — SM-G7102: November
      Galaxy Grand 2 — SM-G7105: November
      Galaxy Note 2 — GT-N7100: November
      Galaxy Note 2 LTE — GT-N7105: November


      The leaked roadmap, which surfaced on XDA Developers

      Samsung has already “completed” the updates due this month, according to the roadmap — so they could drop at anytime. Those for both Galaxy S4 variants and the Note 3 Neo are in final testing, while the others are “pending.”

      This is almost certainly the last KitKat update these devices will receive with Android L right around the corner, and for a number of them, it could be the last official update period. Aging handsets like the Note 2 could well be overlooked when Samsung draws up its list of devices that will receive Android L support.

      [glow=blue]Samsung develops flexible batteries for wearable devices [/glow]

      www.sammobile.com

      flexible batteries
      During the ongoing InterBattery 2014 event in Korea, Samsung has displayed flexible batteries which are intended to be used in wearable devices like the Gear S and the Gear Fit. As per the report, these batteries will be functional even when they are rolled because Samsung has used better structural design and improved materials. The technology isn’t ready for the mass market yet, but such batteries will be commercially available within the next three years. Samsung has showcased a pin-shaped battery which measures just 20 x 3.6 mm, and boasts a capacity of 10 mAh.

      The market for wearable devices hasn’t matured yet, but Samsung is showing continued faith in smartwatches and fitness trackers. The biggest issue with smartwatches these days, is their battery life. If Samsung can get it right with these batteries, and other improvements in the software, Samsung has a huge potential in the wearable devices category. Samsung has also developed and used curved displays in its existing products such as the Galaxy Note Edge, Gear S, Gear Fit, and the HU9000 series of 4K televisions.
