The first information about Galaxy J3 dates from several months ago when the phone's specs leaked online. The successor of the Samsung Galaxy J2 is finally very close to be released on the market.
Samsung is preparing for the release of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge in more than 20 countries, but the company doesn't neglect the launch of other more affordable Android smartphones.
Information revealing that Samsung was working on a budget, affordable smartphone, known in the rumor mill as the Galaxy J1, has recently surfaced. The handset has yet to be officially announced by the parent company, but while we wait on that Sam Mobile gives us a sneak peek into what to expect from the handset.
Samsung's 2014 flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S5, came out early in the year riding a veritable tidal wave of hype and anticipation - but it was not destined to deliver the goods. It seems a bit strange when you break it down, because on paper the Galaxy S5 ticked a lot of boxes for what makes a good smartphone; powerful processor, decent imaging, a nice display, and so on.
The most powerful smartphone in the Alpha lineup has yet to be officially introduced. Samsung hasn’t confirmed the Galaxy A7 and we don’t know when this will happen, but judging by the flow of rumors we’re not that far from an official reveal.
Samsung launched its latest flagship Galaxy Note 4 phone at IFA 2014 a few weeks ago, and the handset has been said to be running on an Exynos 5433 chip (although Samsung has been quite restrained with the details).
There are lots of rumors surrounding Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Mega phablet, but most of the details we got are probably referring to some of the prototypes that are now being tested in the wild.
Ever since Apple introduced the industry's first 64-bit processor with the iPhone 5s, silicon slingers have been in a state of emergency, or that's at least what multiple accounts seem to suggest. While those initially attempted to laugh off 64-bit chips publicly, it eventually became obvious that, much like anything else in the industry, the rest must follow. You may call it herd mentality, but it probably has a lot more to do with pure business than anything else.
Samsung has already established of pattern of launching its most treasured Android smartphones in February and September of each year. The Galaxy S and Galaxy Note family of smartphones are among the most popular of the South Korean handset maker.
When computer users think of the buzzword "64-bit", usually the first thing that comes to mind is the Windows operating system, which comes in two flavors; 32-bit or 64-bit. Like a computer, a smartphone or tablet also has an operating system, (usually Android OS, iOS, or Windows), and to run as 64-bit, it needs a processor that is built to do so.
Apple’s 64-bit processor debuted in the iPhone 5s last year, and was predictably ridiculed by the Android faithful, who secretly prayed to the great Google god: “Please Sir. Can we have some?”
BARCELONA, Spain -- Samsung likely will join the 64-bit processor club this year, but it doesn't have the technology ready just yet, CNET has learned.
Two of the smartphone market's biggest powers met this week to discuss processors. UK-based ARM Holdings plc (LON:ARM), an architecture company whose titular instruction set is found in 95 percent of smartphones sold today, traveled to South Korea, the home turf of Android phonemaker South Korea's Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KSC:005930). Samsung accounted for over 30 percent of global smartphone shipments in Q3 -- nearly three times more than any other OEM.
A senior official for ARM has confirmed that Samsung is on track to release a smartphone equipped with a 64-bit Exynos chip in 2014.
A "senior ARM official" has confirmed for Korean media that the chip architecture developer has been working with Samsung to bring a 64-bit processor to its smartphones and tablets next year.
Samsung Electronics Comp., Ltd. (KSC:005930) -- the world's largest smartphone maker -- designs the system-on-a-chip for its smartphones in-house, much like its rival Apple, Inc. (AAPL). Samsung's chip line -- the Exynos -- has struggled, despite Samsung being a top leader in mobile chip manufacturing (Samsung manufactures Apple's latest and greatest A7, the brains of the iPhone 5S).
Samsung confirmed at its quarterly results press conference for investors today that the 64-bit Exynos chipset it hinted about is ready for the spotlight.
South Korean mobile phone maker Samsung Electronics is expected to announce a new flagship Android-based smartphone in January next year, and some more info on it has reportedly emerged online.
Samsung won't be far behind Apple with a 64-bit mobile chipset, it seems, as Korean media is reporting its own Exynos line has a 64-bit SoC in final stages of development, most likely utilizing the scorching ARM Cortex-A50 architecture, whose advantages you can see in the slideshow below.
One of the key features Apple has been pushing in its new iPhone 5s is the appearance of a "64-bit" A7 mobile processor. Apple's smartphone doubles the number of CPU registers in its flagship smartphone, leaving the competition in the dust with their 32-bit handsets. Samsung has, however, been quick off the mark in announcing that it'll be following Apple down the road to 64 bits, with a similar chip in the pipeline. So what's all the fuss about?
