Samsung China today added the Samsung Galaxy A5 to its roster of metal unibody experiences smartphone. It costs about it costs $420 (CNY 2,599). The Galaxy A5 features include a 5″ Super AMOLED 720p display, a 13MP snapper with LED flash and 2GB of RAM. The only reason I think it’s not worth $420 is the 1.2GHz quad-core CPU Snapdragon 410, which may be just a bit better than the Snapdragon 400 available on much cheaper phones. But in between $200 and $300 that would be really good.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is available from AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. I must admit it is a very nice and cool looking device.
AT&T – $399 on a two-year contract or at no annual commitment for $945.99. $0 down on an AT&T Next plan at $39.42 per month with AT&T Next 18 or $47.30 per month with AT&T Next 12.
Sprint – 429.99 with 2-yr service agreement. $0 down (plus tax) and 24 monthly payments of $35 (SRP: $840; excluding taxes; service plan required).
T-Mobile – cost $870 ($0 down and $36.25/month for 24 months).
The Samsung Gear S watch will come with it’s own number. It can work over WiFi or cellular connection and be paired to any Samsung Galaxy device as long as you download Gear manager if you have a older device like a Note 2 or S3 or S4.
According to PhoneArena, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will have a 5.9-inch 4K Ultra HD display with 746ppi. Spec geeks will love it, but it better come with one helluva good GPU. From normal viewing distance, can the average person even tell if it’s HD or 4K?
According to GFXBench database, Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 will have a 5.5″ 720p display, a 5MP front camera and a 12/13MP rear camera. Specs look really nice. Loving the camera upgrades. I hope they get the pricing right.
According to SamMobile, the Samsung Galaxy S6 will have a Quad HD (2560×1440) display, a 16-megapixel or 20-megapixel camera, 5MP front camera and a fully 64-bit chip with four Cortex-A53 and four Cortex-A57 cores. This sounds like exciting news to see what kind of redesign they have in mind. Say no to bigger screens. 5.5 with minimal bezels will do really.
