  1. The teenager who owned the device, a thirteen year old, left the handset under her pillow whilst sleeping. Having awoken to a strange smell, she soon discovered that her device was literally melting, and the fact that it was so tightly compacted under the pillow with no air flow is through to have been a major contributing factor. As is often the case when devices explode in these situations, though, it must be pointed out that the battery being used at the time was not an official Samsung offering, but a replacement. I always find it striking that folks will happily fork out hundreds upon hun
  2. We heard through the grapevine during Samsung's Analyst Day not long ago that the company might be releasing a 560ppi mobile display next year, which we immediately thought would be a perfect fit for a flagship phone like the Galaxy S5 or even an eventual Note 4. There were no reporters allowed during the Analyst Day presentations given by Samsung head honchos, so most of the rumors what's in the pipeline were hearsay from Korean analysts that were present at the events. Now, however, we have the whole presentation of Samsung Display's CEO Kinam Kim leaking out, and on slide number 11 below 2
  3. According to Korea’s inews24, Dong-hoon Chang today confirmed that Samsung would unveil its new Galaxy S5 high-end smartphone at MWC this February. Unfortunately, that’s all that the Samsung exec allegedly said. The Korean publication notes that Galaxy S5 is a “tentative name”, so we may have a surprise when it comes to the handset’s final moniker (although, frankly, S5 seems to be the best choice for the smartphone's official name). Rumors regarding the features of the new Galaxy appeared countless times until now, suggesting that we should expect to see it having a 64-bit Exynos proces
  4. Early benchmark results are often a good way of discovering whether a new device is being tested out, and with talk currently rife regarding Samsung’s next batch of flagship smartphones, benchmarks found over at GFXBench could already show the full list of specs of the Galaxy S5. The S4 only arrived in the late spring, but with sales having not reached expectations, the Korean company is said to be working doubly hard on its eventual successor. According to the GFXBench results, the device will boast the latest and greatest Android 4.4 KitKat, a Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.5 GHz as w
  5. Another day, another dose of Samsung Galaxy S5 rumors. Today's spicy bit of insider info comes straight from @evleaks who managed to obtain two of the Android application packages (or their names, at least) supposedly built for Samsung's upcoming flagship device. The bad news is that we aren't exactly sure what these APKs do. The good news, however, is that these packages' names seem to reveal some of the features that the Galaxy S5 will brag with once it is released. One of these packages is called FingerprintService.apk, suggesting that Samsung may place a fingerprint scanner of some kind
  6. If you were hyping yourself up for a 2560 x 1440 Quad HD display on the Galaxy S5, it might be time to start tempering your expectations. Samsung devices with very similar model numbers started appearing online this week, and the latest discovery, the SM-G900L, has appeared under a listing on the website of South Korean mobile operator LG U+ with one very interesting reveal. According to the listing, the SM-G900L is a Galaxy device that will run Android 4.4 KitKat, but its 5.1-inch display will retain the standard 1080p resolution of the current smartphone generation. Considering how spars
  7. Perennial leaker Eldar Murtazin spilled some beans today on the eventual Galaxy S5 unveiling, claiming that the flagship will be announced February 23 at Samsung's 6pm event in Barcelona, a day before the MWC expo officially commences. The actual launch will happen in April, he claims, which leaves us a bit miffed as to why would Samsung unveil its flagship for the year so early, and then make it available for purchase two months later. What are we, in 2010? Samsung started doing its own thing a while ago, announcing the S line flagships at separate events in March, and releasing them shortl
  8. New reports detail potential features for Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5. The device is said to pack fingerprint-reading technology instead of a rumored iris scanner, but to also offer better “Air gestures” features than its predecessor. The Korea Herald has learned that the Galaxy S5 may indeed include a fingerprint reader, which could be placed under the screen, allowing the user to press anywhere on the display to initiate fingerprint-based actions. An unnamed source familiar with the matter said that an iris scanner would not be intuitive and user-friendly, as such a
  9. Back in October, rumors emerged about the possibility of Samsung implementing magnetic resonance wireless charging, a technology that allows wireless charging of a device without direct contact with the charging pad, on its smartphones. The rumors suggested that the technology would find its way into phones from mid-2014, but some were still hopeful that it would be ready in time to find a place on the Galaxy S5. However, that’s not likely to happen, according to a report from the Korean media. Industry officials have said that Samsung might skip on putting magnetic resonance wireless chargin
  10. According to a Korean publication, the Galaxy S5 will feature a fingerprint scanner rather than an iris scanner when it comes out later this year.The Korea Herald cites industry sources claiming Samsung will use a fingerprint scanner on its upcoming flagship because iris scanning technology is not mature enough for deployment. “Among the different types of biometric sensors that Samsung is testing for its Galaxy S5, the tech giant will go for fingerprint authentication rather than unintuitive user experience of iris recognition”, said the unnamed source. Lee Young Hee, VP of Samsung’s mobile b
  11. A rumour from a few weeks ago suggested that Samsung will unveil a successor for the smartphone/camera hybrid, the Galaxy S4 Zoom. Things might be quite far along as the company imported a number of SM-C115 "mobile camera" devices into India for testing. The significance here is that the Galaxy S4 Zoom carries the model numbers SM-C101 or SM-C105. According to the initial rumor, the Galaxy S5 Zoom will have a 4.8" Super AMOLED screen with qHD resolution and will be launched in May. Unfortunately, unlike some other Zauba listings there's no mention of screen size here. Anyway, the
  12. Samsung announced the time and date of its next Unpacked event. The Korean giant’s next major mobile product announcement will take place this month, on February 24 in Barcelona, right at the MWC kickoff. The invitations contain more than a subtle hint that the Samsung Galaxy S5 will break cover during the event. They have the number 5 on display which is as clear a suggestion as it gets in our book. A potential appearance of the Samsung Galaxy S5 during the Mobile World Congress guarantees it a great deal of spotlight. Samsung was relatively quiet during last year’s MWC and did not anno
  13. Samsung is apparently counting on a new feature rumored to be coming to the Samsung Galaxy S5, in order to put some distance between itself and other top-shelf Android handsets. While the early talk surrounding the Galaxy S5 has revolved around a 5.25 inch screen with 1440 x 2560 (QHD) resolution, there is also speculation that the device will include an eye scanner to offer the same functions that the TouchID fingerprint scanner offers users of the Apple iPhone 5s. A published report on Monday, out of Korea, not only mentions that the eye scanner will be used as a security feature on
  14. According to a report by Chinese website Tencent, Samsung has decided not to use a Super AMOLED HD display panel for its Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone. Traditionally, ever since the first Galaxy S smartphone, Samsung has always preferred its own AMOLED displays for its flagships. However, according to the report based on unconfirmed information, the Galaxy S5 will be an exception, as Samsung has chosen Sharp to provide a 5.25" 2K Ultra HD LTPS display panel. It's going to pack an exceptional pixel density of 560 pixels per inch. The reason behind Samsung's decision resides in one of its subsi
  15. We recently passed along the word from Italian journalist Flavio Piccioni, who heard from a reliable source, that the Samsung Galaxy S5 would be unveiled in London around the middle of March. Of course, that would contradict the popular idea that the next iteration of Samsung's Android flagship handset would be unwrapped at MWC in February. A published report out of Korea on Tuesday, cites an anonymous Samsung official who says that the MWC is mostly for business meetings and that the timing is wrong for an unveiling of the Galaxy S5 in Barcelona. And instead of a March launch in London, thi
  16. We may be waiting for Samsung to share its vision for the Galaxy S5, but that isn’t stopping people from coming up with their own concepts of what the next big thing from the company will be like. The latest concept comes from Rozetked, with the idea being that the new handset would be some sort of amalgamation between an iPhone 5s and whatever Samsung has up its sleeve for the next Galaxy phone. This being a device that takes cues from the iPhone 5s, the device in the video looks somewhat like an overly large iPhone. The Galaxy S5 as it is depicted here features a flat back that will look ee
  17. We've been getting tips about the alleged battery capacity in the Samsung Galaxy S5, claiming it will be 2900 mAh, with rapid charging technology deployed, which will get the juicer pumped up to the rim in under two hours. The Galaxy S4 has a 2600 mAh battery, so a 2900 mAh unit would be a nice bump in capacity, unless, of course, it has to maintain a 2K resolution display panel, then we'll probably hardly see any gain in battery life from the fourth generation to the fifth. The interesting thing is that our tipsters claim it will be a new type of Li-ion battery that can store 20% more ener
  18. Samsung has some of the most popular smartphones on the market with its Galaxy S series of devices. Currently the Galaxy S4 is one of the most popular smartphones from Samsung. Reports are now coming in from a highly placed Samsung executive that the next generation Samsung Galaxy S smartphone will be coming in April. Samsung's executive vice president of mobile business said during an interview with Bloomberg on January 6 that the Samsung Galaxy S5 would be launching in April. Lee noted that Samsung launches a new flagship model around the first half of each year. Lee also tipped that the
  19. The rumors of the hotly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S5 offer various tidbits, but new information from an unnamed insider adds in some interesting details. The info claims that in an iPhone-like twist the Galaxy S5 will come in both plastic and metal version. The metal version will carry a hefty markup of €150 over the €650 for the base plastic model. Whether or not the metal version will be dubbed Galaxy F the rumor doesn’t say. There will be two versions when it comes to the chipset too. The Galaxy S5 should be one the first devices to feature the new Snapdragon 805 chipset. The second
  20. The Samsung Galaxy S5 might arrive around mid-March, shortly after Mobile World Congress (MWC), at a specially organized event in London, UK. The rumor comes from Italian freelance tech journalist Flavio Piccioni, who claims he’s got the information from a ‘reliable source’. This comes just days after Samsung itself officially confirmed that the Galaxy S5 will not make an official appearance at MWC, but is still on track to getting officially unveiled by the end of April. A mid-March event falls in line with this timing, and London seems like a very suitable spot for the global launch of Sa
  21. All of our questions about the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be answered come February 24th in Barcelona, but that hasn't stopped more rumors and speculations about the device from circulating the media. In fact, a newest piece of data from AnTuTu suggests that there will be two different Galaxy S5 devices with significantly disparate technical specifications: SM-G900H and SM-G900R4. The SM-G900R4 is packing a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, 3GB of RAM, Andreno 330 GPU, 32GB internal storage, 16MP primary camera, 2.1MP front-facing unit, a QHD display, and will have KitKit 4.4.2 out of the bo
  22. Samsung Galaxy S5 benchmark screenshots have allegedly appeared on AnTuTu, confirming a 16 MP camera on the back, but the rest of the specs listed are underwhelming, at least compared to the rumors bandied about. What we see is a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 800 - powered device with 1080p display, 2 GB of RAM, a 16 MP camera on the back, and 2 MP at the front. Temperature and humidity sensors are also conspicuously absent, and these are an integral part of Samsung's S Health app. However, the source confirms that the benchmark is done on one of Samsung's engineering sample "mules", though, which a
  23. In a note to investors, KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has detailed the specs and features of the next-gen Galaxy S flagship, revealing that the handset may have two versions whose features will be slightly different, 9to5Google reports. The Galaxy S5 “Prime” and the Galaxy S5 “Standard” – which is what Kuo calls them, although it’s likely these aren’t the final names of the products – will share many specs including a 5.2-inch display 16-megapixel main camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 3D gesture support, fingerprint sensor, plastic cases and a 2850mAh battery. However, when it comes to sc
  24. Once you go through a few rumor and hype build-up phases for upcoming smartphones, it becomes apparent that much of the digging is actually carried out by people doing rather ungrateful, manual work. Of course, finding that needle in the haystack is an altogether different quest, if you're not even sure what you're looking for. This is precisely where manufacturer model numbers come in play, and they have been consistently helpful with getting our hands on more and more intel, as they are fairly unique and often offer more information than one might think. Luckily for all of us, the folks behi
