After the much awaited Android update for the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, Samsung has now confirmed that both these phones will now get the Galaxy Gear support along with the Android update which will be out soon depending on what country you are in.
Recently the Android update was out for the Galaxy S4 and now it will be applied to the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2. The Galaxy Gear support will not be limited only to Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3 or Note 2 as the Gear support will also be available for Galaxy S4 mini, Galaxy S4 Active, Galaxy Mega 5.8, Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Galaxy S4 Zoom. All these devices would be able [...]
Samsung will be bringing Android 4.3 to some of its older devices in October, according to a company representative. The announcement was made during the unveiling of the Galaxy Gear smart watch, which is only compatible with the Android 4.3-based Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) at launch due to the requirements for Bluetooth 4.0 LE.
The original Galaxy Note was quite late in being updated to Android 4.1 from its shipping version of Ice Cream Sandwich, and doesn’t look to be receiving any future updates. So too will the Galaxy S2 remain on Jelly Bean 4.1, since both devices lack the hardware capable of [...]
Samsung Galaxy Note II users, along with Galaxy S3 owners, have been waiting rather impatiently for their turn to upgrade to Android 4.2.2, which came pre-installed on the flagship GS4.
Now, it seems as though the company may be moving away from releasing a version of the eight month-old software in favour of waiting for Google’s inevitable Android 4.3 release, which is slated to come to AOSP next week.
Telstra, an Australian network provider released a statement on their upgrade page claiming, “Samsung have elected globally to skip the 4.2.2 update for this device and will instead go [...]
Everyone who said that the Galaxy S4 is just a mere update to the Galaxy S3 might just be right this time around. A test Android 4.2.2 update, discovered by SamMobile, has all the new “amazing and unique” features of the Galaxy S4 for the previous flagship. The new test build includes the lockscreen effects and widgets, enhanced screen modes, updated settings, and new S Voice control features found in Samsung’s new flagship.
Of course if you were expecting Air View and the Remote feature, you would need to know that those things are hardware dependent and not software dependent. However, in theory you [...]
The Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note will not receive Google’s next Android update, according to a report.
SamMobile clams to have heard from an inside source that the previous-generation products will not be updated past Android Jelly Bean.
Samsung didn’t confirm this news but, it seems that this will be actually true and we will get to see Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update released for Galaxy S2, Galaxy Note and for multiple other two-year old Samsung smartphones.
The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OTA update will be the last upgrade that old Samsung devices will [...]

It looks like that even luxury designer houses have dual love for both iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3 like the divided customer base on the two most popular Smartphones presently in the market. Amosu Couture, which is one of the most known international luxury brand has studded Samsung Galaxy S3 with 500 stunning Swarovski crystals. This also marks the first ever Swarovski edition of the Galaxy S3 smartphone. May be Samsung tags it with ‘designed for humans’ but now Amosu Couture tags the same with ‘designed for luxury class!’
The world’s very first S3 Swarovski edition is [...]
Samsung is poking fun at Apple fans and the upcoming Iphone 5 in an advert designed to make us realise that its Galaxy S3 is the best handset around.
The advert shows a bunch of young trendies queueing outside an Apple store and talking excitedly about the incoming phone.
“All I’m saying is they should have a priority line for people who’ve waited five times,” one guy says at the start of the 90-second ad.
While the iPhone is never referred to by name, many of its specs are mentioned. “You have to have an adapter [...]
Korean-mobile maker Samsung has sold ten million handsets of its latest smartphone Galaxy S3 in less than two months, according to a report.
Galaxy SIII broke the 10 million barrier in less than half the time it took its predecessor, the Galaxy SII, which is the bestselling Android handset so far.
The mega smartphone sports an impressive range of top-spec features, including a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD screen, 8-Megapixel camera, and a quad-core processor.
Last month Samsung had predicted that its heroic handset [...]
Several Rumors are pointing to a official version of the Jelly Bean rom for the Samsung Galaxy SIII (International/our Version) on the 29th of August. The current flagship phone has also been Samsung’s best seller, and will get the Jelly Bean update alongside the announcement of the Galaxy Note 2 which is scheduled to happen at IFA.
Usually Samsung update ROMs tend to leak out a month in advance, but its possible the company is keeping it tightly under wraps this time.
All blowing up news aside, Samsung is hopeful that the company will be able to sell over 10 million units by the end of July 2012. Samsung had already earlier announced that the company has received 9 million preorders for their flagship, and now expect to sell another million.
Samsung timed the launch to perfection and took advantage of Apple’s new iPhone launch cycle, which now happens in October rather than June. According to Korea Economic Daily, the factory in charge of the production of the Galaxy S3 is working to its maximum capacity, finishing 5 million units per month. Samsung did not wish to comment on [...]
Samsung is currently investigating a report that one of its Galaxy S3 handsets exploded in a user’s car in Ireland, and another model allegedly exploded in a Korean schoolboy’s pocket.
The news comes as the electronics giant gears up to launch its flagship handset in its native Korea on Monday. A schoolboy in Korea was earlier reported to claim his handset’s battery exploded while in his back pocket.
In that incident, Samsung claimed the external pressure pre-empted on the device was what caused it to explode.
The Galaxy S3 is Samsung’s flagship device and these incidents would certainly put a doubt in the consumer’s mind.
