    Rumours: Samsung Galaxy A5 leaked?

    The rumoured but unannounced Samsung Galaxy A5 has been leaked. The slim metal frame looks to follow that of the recently released Samsung Galaxy Alpha but offers midrange tech specs and features with a non-removable cover. Up until this point, Samsung usually make their phones with removable back covers, even the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Alpha, so this is a big thing in terms of design. Tech specs include support for 4G LTE, dual-SIM, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 16GB worth of storage and a microSD slot along with a 2300 mAh battery. No details yet on Malaysia release dates or pricing but we expect it to be around RM1K with these tech specs. Check out the leaked images for yourself in this article.

    Samsung Galaxy Note Edge announced, first bended display smartphone

     

    Ever since Samsung came out with their YOUM flexible displays, everyone has been wondering when we'd be able to see a Samsung smartphone featuring a bended or flexible display. In a surprise move, Samsung officially announced the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, the world's first smartphone with a bended display. Exactly as it's name suggests, one side of the display is bent at an angle and is a fully functional Super AMOLED touchscreen. Apart from that, other tech specs and features are more or less the same as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, right down to the S Pen and better looking artificial leather backside. The single edge touchscreen on the side does make it feel a bit lopsided and it also raises the question of whether it is made for left-handed or right handed people, but overall the design is very premium looking. Tech specs and features for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge include:

    • 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor
    • 3GB RAM
    • 32GB / 54GB storage + up to 64GB microSD
    • 5.6-inch display (Super AMOLED, 2560 x 1440 + 160 pixel resolution)
