Samsung has published another teaser video entitled “Expect Note” that hopes to excite Galaxy Note fans ahead of the company’s Unpacked event at IFA next week, where it will announce the latest addition to its phablet family. The one-minute clip again hints at a focus on handwriting and S Pen stylus improvements.

Samsung has reached an agreement with Nokia to secure exclusive rights to its HERE maps service as it looks to give its Android users a new alternative to Google Maps. The new HERE app for Android will only be available on Galaxy-branded smartphones and tablets, and there will be a HERE companion app for Samsung’s new Gear S smartwatch.

Sometimes you wonder whether Samsung churns out so many products simply to take more swipes at Apple.

Samsung can’t go for long without feeling the need to lash out at Apple with a new ad. This time it’s the recently-launched Galaxy Tab S tablet, which is the center of a “Hands-On” commercial, showing a Samsung spokesman going around New York City, letting “random” members of the public pick between the new Galaxy Tab S and iPad Air.

And — wouldn’t you know it (this being a Samsung commercial and all) — the comments come down heavily in favor of Samsung!

Friends forever? Samsung’s next chairman helped broker various deals between Samsung and Apple.

The man tipped to take over Samsung as chairman was the only Samsung executive invited to attend Jobs’ 2011 memorial service.

46-year-old Lee Jae Yong is the son of current Samsung chairman Lee Kun-hee, who suffered a major heart attack in May this year.

While relatively little is known about Lee Jae Yong he is considered to be the executive responsible for helping build the relationship with Apple that sees Samsung supply components for Apple devices, dating back to the iPod.

Today, Samsung officially took the wraps off its Gear S — the first ever standalone, Tizen-powered smartwatch with 3G, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth compatibility. Yes, that’s right, folks. This watch does not need to be paired to a smartphone; you can stay up to date with all your notifications from social networks, calendars and applications even when your phone is nowhere to be seen. You can make and receive calls too with the Gear S. Now that’s pretty cool.
