  • Samsung's new 'Holiday Dreams' video features 74 Samsung devices

    Samsung's new 'Holiday Dreams' video features 74 Samsung devices

    Christmas holidays have already started and Samsung plans to put everyone in the holiday mood with its latest video. The company recently released a new dreamscape movie on its official YouTube channel called the 'Holiday Dreams'. The video is quite different than any other advertisements released by the company recently and features 74 Samsung devices which include flagship smartphones, tablets and even large screen Samsung HDTVs. From the video, we could make out some of the Galaxy devices like the Samsung Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge and even some Samsung smartwatches. All these devices are built on a rig. This rig can be moved, twisted or even bended to portray the entire story in one video. The story revolves around a small girl who chases her favorite stocking in a dream. She jumps, falls and even swims across a number of Samsung devices to finally get her stocking. Samsung also points out that the story video required a lot of effort.  The transition from one device to another is not animated but captured live. The video had to be played on each device at the appropriate time to make it look like the girl seamlessly jumped across a number of devices. Below, we have added the 'Behind the scenes' video as well which shows the amount of effort required for making the whole 'Holiday Dreams' video.

  • The Samsung Galaxy A7 measures in at 6.3mm thin at TENAA

    The Samsung Galaxy A7 measures in at 6.3mm thin at TENAA

    The Samsung Galaxy A7 has just passed the Chinese Telecommunication Equipment Certification Agency, TENAA which means that it may soon be announced in China. The Galaxy A7 is a part of Samsung's recently established 'A' series which also includes the Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy A3 and Galaxy A5. According to the TENAA page, the device will be the thinnest smartphone from Samsung at just 6.3mm in thickness which makes it even thinner than the recently announced A5 which measures in at 6.7mm. The tech specs of the device are pretty impressive with a 64-bit 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB storage which is not expandable. On the front, there is a large 5.5 inch 1080p display. The rear camera measures in at 13MP while the front camera is at 5MP. The phone supports high speed 4G LTE networks and runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat OS. While we expect a Malaysia release of the device, the one that hit TENAA had the model number SM-A7009, which is probably the Chinese variant of the device. Malaysia pricing and availability will be updated once the device is officially announced by Samsung.

  • Rumours: Samsung may release a Galaxy S6 Edge variant alongside its next flagship

    Rumours: Samsung may release a Galaxy S6 Edge variant alongside its next flagship

    Samsung is going back to its roots to develop the new Samsung Galaxy flagship. The initiative called as 'Project Zero' internally aims to develop a new flagship that stands out from the crowd. However, it looks like the company will be sticking to its usual naming scheme for the upcoming smartphone. SamMobile reports that the next Samsung flagship will be called the Samsung Galaxy S6. They have been right many times in the past few years especially when it comes to Samsung's plans, hence this report could be true. The website further reveals that the company is also planning to launch another variant of the flagship alongside the regular model called the Galaxy S6 edge. Judging from the name, the S6 edge could be curved display variant of the device, just like the Galaxy Note Edge. Expected tech specs of the Galaxy S6 include a 64-bit Exynos 7420 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 32/64/128GB storage, quad HD 2560 x 1440 pixel display and a 20MP rear camera. However, it is still early to confirm any of these reports, so make sure you take this news with a pinch of salt.

  • Samsung leaks Samsung Galaxy A7 tech specs

    Samsung leaks Samsung Galaxy A7 tech specs

    It happens quite often these days that upcoming smartphones accidentally get revealed by their own website and this seems to be the case with the Samsung Galaxy A7. While we still don't know how it looks like, leaked images of the Galaxy A3 suggest that it will share features with the metal-body Galaxy Alpha. The leaked tech specs for the Galaxy A7 include a 1.5GHz 64-bit processor and a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixel resolution. We assume that it will come out with Android 5.0 Lolipop but asides from that there's little else in terms of details. No Malaysia release dates or pricing but we expect it to be a bit lower than the Galaxy Alpha (which is RM1899) perhaps at RM1799 or so. Stay tuned for more developments.
