Samsung has always been known as one of the best smartphone brands out there. With each of the Galaxy S series model introduced, they've won the consumer's heart.

So today we will take a look at the key features of every generation of the Samsung Galaxy S series to see the evolution of the latest Samsung Galaxy S7 edge into the device it is today.

The recently revealed Samsung Galaxy S7 builds upon the winning design of the previous Galaxy S6 but now features IP68 water resistance rating higher than the IP67 water reistance of the Galaxy S5. Technically, this means you can now bring it swimming for up to 1.5 meters and 30 minutes, but T-Mobile went a step further and did an underwater unboxing and first impressions video. The video also shows some underwater hands-on action as well, but check it out for yourself in this article.

So apparently, there's a leaked image of showing various Samsung Galaxy models to be updated with Android Marshmallow. Similarly to Marvel Studio Cinematic Phase plans, the image are showing 2 phase plans of which model will be updated first. There's also a third phase, but as of now there are no plans yet and it will only commence after initial testing (same goes to the n/a status below).

When it first came out, the ASUS ZenFone range of smartphones made a huge impact as devices that looked as good as flagship smartphones with nearly as good performance and features yet were priced for the entry-level to midrange. Obviously, the ASUS ZenFone 2 range of smartphones have rather big shoes to fill, but with features like 4GB RAM, 5MP PixelMaster front cameras, 64-bit Intel processors, 4G LTE and improvements across the board, the new ZenFones could very well surpass the achievements of its predecessors. Does it live up to the hype or break expectations? Check out our full review of the 4GB RAM enabled ASUS ZenFone 2 ZE551ML with 32GB storage to find out.

Currently the only smartphone in the world with 4GB RAM remains the ASUS ZenFone 2 ZE551ML. Featuring a 64-bit 2.3-GHZ quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor and high-end PowerVR Rogue G6430 graphics, quite a lot of people have been interested to see how it performs on the benchmarks. This was on top of earlier benchmarks with the ZenFone 2 ZE550CL which earlier scored 50000+ on AnTuTu. Thankfully, someone has come out with a number of benchmarks and unboxing photos. Unfortunately, it seems to be lower with a score of 47434. However, there could be a reason for this as other benchmarks like 3DMark and Geekbench report very high scores. We assume that the AnTuTu benchmark needs to be updated to run 4GB of RAM tests first before the true potential of the ZenFone 2 ZE551ML can be drawn out. Since Geekbench 3 is already cross platform it doesn't need to be optimized, resulting in a 912 single-core score and 2946 multi-core score places it on par with theSamsung Galaxy Note 3 and beating the Samsung Galaxy S5. We'll know more when we get a turn at the ASUS ZenFone 2 smartphones, so please wait patiently for the expected release in April 2015.

Biometric sensors are usually located on home buttons like in the Apple iPhone 6 or the Samsung Galaxy S5. This forces companies to increase the space below the display so as to accommodate the fingerprint sensor on the button. However, CrucialTek from South Korea has come up with a better solution. The company recently patented a new technology which allows biometric sensors to be embedded directly in the touch screen panel. Once this tech is incorporated in smartphones, users will no longer have to rely on different areas for fingerprint recognition as the touchscreen itself will act as a sensor. This will save a lot of space, especially at the bottom where the sensor is located on the home button. A similar tech was expected to feature in the Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 4, but that just didn't happen. As CrucialTek just received the patent, it seems doubtful that we'll see it come in the Galaxy S6 as this is set for release in the next few weeks. However, you can expect future launches, like the Galaxy Note 5 to feature this new age fingerprint module. Apple too is said to be experimenting with a similar technology and even recently patented it. Of course there are no exact Malaysia release dates but we expect such devices to appear later in the year.

Samsung is all set to unveil its next flagship device, the Galaxy S6 this year. The company has already started sending out invites for its Unpacked event to be held on 1st March 2015 where it is said that the company will launch the Galaxy S6. The invite doesn't reveal anything particular about the specs of the upcoming device, except for a curvy line which could be hinting about the rumored Galaxy S6 Edge version. Other than that, there is very little information about the upcoming flagship. However, unofficially, a new report has come up online which claims that the pricing for both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge has been revealed. The report says that the upcoming Samsung flagship will come in three different storage variants – 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. The base storage version will start at €749 (RM3096) followed by an additional €100 (RM413) for each larger variant. As for the Galaxy S6 Edge, the device will start at €849 (RM3509) for the 32GB model going up to €1049 (RM4336) for the 128GB model. These prices have not yet been confirmed, but they are somewhat close to the launch prices of the previous flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. Stay tuned for more details.
