Samsung is currently rolling out the much-anticipated Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to all International models of its former flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S4, located in parts of Asia and Europe including Poland, Malaysia and the Philippines. This rather hefty upgrade is a fairly major bump up from Android 4.3, bringing support for the Galaxy Gear, together with the usual multitude of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations.

Yesterday, Samsung unveiled the successor to its relatively popular 2013 mid-range Android smartphone, the Galaxy Core. Sporting the name ‘Galaxy Core LTE’, the follow-up handset, like its predecessor, isn’t exactly what you’d call an impressive device, but it’s still pretty snappy and has more enough power to get you through the day on a single charge.
The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO tablets are formally entering European markets today. Unlike yesterday’s American launch — which saw just the NotePRO and 10.1-inch TabPRO making their debut — all three variants of the Galaxy TabPRO are available.
Customs officials in Stuttgart, Germany, have seized and destroyed 250 counterfeit Galaxy S4 handsets that were set to go on sale in Europe. The devices were picked up at the airport as they entered the country, then demolished one-by-one with a hammer.
The LG G Flex will continue its international rollout later this week when it goes on sale in more than 20 countries across Europe.
Consumers in the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Austria, and other “major European markets” will be able to get their hands on the flexible smartphone for the first time since it made its debut in Korea last November.
The Galaxy Tab 3 Lite, a more affordable version of Samsung’s entry-level Android tablet, has been made available to pre-order in Europe for the first time since it was announced last week.
The Wi-Fi only model is priced at 6,490 rubles in Russia, which is roughly $206 U.S. dollars; while the 3G model costs 9,900 rubles, which is around $294 U.S. dollars.
Motorola is now in the process of rolling out the much-anticipated Android 4.4.2 KitKat update to all the scaled-down variants of its flagship smartphone, the Moto G, in Europe. The upgrade is a relatively minor bump up from 4.4, and it doesn’t pack much in terms of new functionality, but it does bring a multitude of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations.
Vodafone U.K. has announced that it will be adding Motorola’s latest budget-friendly smartphone, the Moto G, to its rapidly growing lineup of Android-powered handsets.
Unfortunately, the carrier has not yet announced any pricing for this device as it’s holding back that information for the official launch, though we suspect it will be somewhere in the region of £120, seeing as that’s the price independent retailer, Phones 4U, is currently offering the device for on a Vodafone Simplicity tariff.
Samsung showcased its partial gaming attachment, the GamePad, at IFA 2013 on Friday 6, December, and now the South Korean company has made the product official. In a press release earlier today, Samsung revealed that the GamePad is currently available in select European markets for Android smartphones between 4 and 6.3-inches, and is compatible with handsets running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean or higher, provided they have Bluetooth 3.0 or NFC.
After a short break, Samsung is now returning to its European rollout and has started by pushing the beefy Android 4.3 update to all its International Galaxy S III smartphones with the model number, GT-i9305. This much-anticipated update finally brings Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and support for the recently released Galaxy Gear smartwatch — which is designed to make receiving calls, texts and notifications on your handset a little easier to manage.
