Samsung upset a lot of early Galaxy S5 adopters back in June when it announced the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, an improved version of the Galaxy S5 with a better display and a faster processor, just two months after the original first went on sale. However, it was only made available in South Korea.

Now a similar handset has popped up on international Samsung product pages with a new moniker — Galaxy S5 Plus — indicating a worldwide launch could be right around the corner.

Rooting your Samsung Galaxy S5 (and S5 Prime) or Galaxy Note 4 couldn’t be easier, thanks to Chainfire’s wonderfully simple root method, “CF-Auto-Root.” The tool provides users with the SuperSU binary and APK for root access under their pre-installed TouchWiz ROM.

Recent rumors have claimed that Samsung will be one of the first smartphone makers to bring Android L to its flagship devices following its public launch later this fall, and those claims have been bolstered by a new video that shows Google’s next-generation Android platform running on the Galaxy S5.

Motorola’s new Moto X has been picking up rave reviews since making its debut last month, with many calling it the best Android-powered smartphone you can buy right now. But just how long will Motorola allow it to hold onto that title?

The company has been tasked with building Google’s upcoming Nexus 6, and if its leaked specifications are anything to go by, it’s going to be bigger and better than anything Motorola has given us so far.

Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus carry the best smartphone cameras you can buy right now, according to the camera and lens experts at DxOMark.
