Samsung’s new Galaxy Gear lineup is already compatible with a whole bunch of existing devices, the South Korean company revealed this week. Including the new Galaxy S5, 12 smartphones and 8 tablets work with the new wearables right out of the box.

A new benchmark listing has revealed the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 sporting Android 4.4 KitKat, hinting that the company is testing the update internally. The model revealed here belongs to a South Korean carrier.


The development team behind Replicant OS, an open-source operating system based on Android, have discovered a security flaw with Samsung devices that can provide remote access to your data. The “backdoor” is found in a whole bunch of Galaxy-branded handsets — including the Galaxy Nexus — running “most propriety Android systems.”


Sprint has announced that the much-anticipated Android 4.4.2 KitKat over-the-air update is currently in preparation for its carrier-branded Samsung Galaxy Mega (5.8 and 6.3), Galaxy Note II, Galaxy S4 Mini, Galaxy S III, and Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 variants located in both North and South America.


Wondering whether your Galaxy device is in line for a KitKat update? Well, wonder no more. Samsung has today published a list of smartphones and tablets that are “currently scheduled” to receive an Android 4.4 upgrade, and the South Korean company says that rollout begins today.


Samsung unveiled its former flagship smartphone, the Galaxy Note II, back in August, 2012, and a month later the handset was available in the U.K. from several retailers for £599.99. However, if you haven’t had the opportunity or the wherewithal to pick one up before now, it may be of interest to you to know that the popular online retailer, Very, is currently offering the device with a £200 discount.


We first heard speculation surrounding a cheaper Galaxy Note 3 “Lite” back in December, and it was claimed that the handset would make its debut during the first quarter of this year. Now a leaked specifications sheet has revealed everything there is to know about the device, which will actually be called the Galaxy Note 3 Neo.

But rather than a scaled back version of the Galaxy Note 3, the device seems more of an upgraded Galaxy Note 2, and it’ll be the world’s first smartphone with a “Hexa-Core” processor, which combines a dual-core and a quad-core CPU.
