Samsung and Swarovski have partnered to deliver a custom cover for the Galaxy Note 3. On display at this year's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, the $300 crystal-clad cover is also on sale for a limited time.
The Galaxy Note 3 case is bundled with a matching bracelet and comes in three color options: Jet (black), Crystal Bermuda Blue and Crystal Metallic Light Gold, and Crystal Metallic Silver. There is one catch -- you'll have to trek to Swarovski's retail store in Manhattan, New York to get one.
This isn't the first time Samsung has … Read more
Samsung's Siri competitor, S Voice, is set for an overhaul, according to a new report.
Sammobile on Wednesday published photos of what it claims is the new-and-improved S Voice app. The app, which allows users to employ their voices to make commands, comes with a two-tone blue design and an interface that embraces flat design -- i.e., simple and minimalistic.
The leaked images come just after Sammobile showed off updated versions of Samsung's S Health and WatchOn apps. All three apps are expected to come with the rumored Galaxy S5.
Sammobile says that the new S Voice … Read more
Apple and Samsung have provided their final list of allegedly infringing devices for their next mega trial.
Apple on Tuesday presented to the San Jose, Calif., federal court a slew of Samsung products -- including the Admire, Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note II, and Galaxy S3 -- that it contends violates its patents. Samsung responded, saying that it believes Apple's iPhone 4, 4S, and 5 -- along with the iPad 2, 3, and 4, among others -- infringe on its patents.
Samsung's Galaxy S5 will use its entire screen as one giant fingerprint sensor. At least, that's a new tidbit served up by someone considered a Samsung insider.
Leaking the information to blog site iTechAddict, the "well-placed insider within Samsung India R&D" said that the fingerprint sensor will be the screen itself. Theoretically, that means users would be able to touch anywhere on the display to unlock the phone and gain access to secure apps and content.

Like it or not, the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 is set to usher in the era of ultra HD smartphone screens.
The Galaxy S5 won't be the first mobile handset to showcase a 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution -- that honor belongs to the Vivo Xplay 3S -- but it will be the handset that draws the most attention, at least initially. And part of that conversation will revolve around just how necessary, even useful, it is to top a phone with a screen resolution so high.
Apple has long stood by the 326ppi pixel density of its Retina Display … Read more

Samsung Galaxy-gazers, it's time to turn your attention back to Barcelona. Samsung announced on Monday that it's launching its next major flagship product at Mobile World Congress on February 24, and this Unpacked 5 event couldn't plausibly be anything other than the Samsung Galaxy S5.
Samsung has a long history of introducing its yearly Samsung Galaxy lineup in this time frame, either in late February at Mobile World Congress, or in early March, like last year's Galaxy S4 production in New York.
Rumors about the next-gen Galaxy smartphone take in a 2,560x1,440 ultra high-resolution … Read more
With its Galaxy TabPro 12.2, Samsung takes direct aim at Microsoft, the Surface 2, and the productivity tablet market. Thanks to its huge bounty of business apps, the TabPro can easily challenge the Surface 2 as the best ARM-based productivity tablet and may even be able to surpass it.
It's taking a slightly different trail than Microsoft's to get there, and though I haven't spent nearly enough time with the TabPro just yet -- look for a full review later this month -- its appeal as a business tablet is crystal-clear.
Productivity software You can't … Read more
