As expected, the Samsung Galaxy Note5 isn't the only new handset to debut at Samsung's Unpacked event. The company introduced the Galaxy S6 edge+ with a 5.7" dual-curve display and an Exynos 7420 chipset with 4GB of RAM.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ offers a slightly bigger display than S6 edge, more RAM and larger battery.. The new Super AMOLED is 5.7 inches and keeps the resolution at Quad HD, which adds up to 518 ppi pixel density.
The Exynos 7420 powerhouse is once again powering a Galaxy flagship, just like it did the Galaxy S6 edge. It offers an octa-core processor with 4x Cortex-A53 @1.5GHz and 4x Cortex-A57 @2.1GHz, Mali-T760MP8 graphics and 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The smaller S6 edge comes with "just" 3GB RAM.
The main camera seems to be the unchanged - a 16MP snapper with optical image stabilization and f/1.9 aperture. A front 5MP selfie shooter is also onboard, again with a bright f/1.9 aperture.
The connectivity package is as impressive as it can get - LTE Cat.9/Cat.6 (market dependent), Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.2 with ANT+, NFC, GPS (A-GPS, GLONASS, Beidou), plus support for Samsung Pay via Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST).
Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ is powered by e 3,000 mAh battery and is capable of fast charging both on cable and wireless charger. The phone comes wireless charging enabled, buy you'll need to by the charger itself separately.
Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop skinned with the latest TouchWiz UI. It also supports the newest KNOX version.
The Galaxy S6 edge+ will be available in 32GB and 64GB flavors and will come in 4 color options to choose from - Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum, Silver Titanium and White Pearl.
The latest device from Samsung, the fifth generation Galaxy Note has released with this year's models feature a metal and glass frame follow-up to the Galaxy S6.
The Samsung Galaxy Note5 is the evolution of last year's model Note 4 with similarities to the S6. The bezels around the 5.7" screen are narrower, the phablet itself is almost a millimeter thinner making it easier to hold in the hand.
The Super AMOLED screen has QHD resolution as before, but the way it interacts with the S Pen stylus has been revamped. The stylus is clickable, though that only serves to get it out of its sheath. Once you do, you can start immediately taking a note even when the screen is "off" (with AMOLED the distinction is small).
If the screen is already on the new Air Command shows up instead. You get to put app shortcuts in it to make multitasking easier.
The Galaxy Note5 has 4GB of RAM, up from 3GB on both the Note 4 and Galaxy S6. This gives apps more playroom, but the Exynos 7420 chipset will have an even bigger impact – it's currently the fastest mobile chipset on the market, Samsung didn’t even need to overclock it as new competition is yet to catch up.
Storage is based on the fast UFS 2.0 standard. While it outruns regular eMMC 5.0 storage, data hoarders have been locked out of expanding the memory – the base model has 32GB, you can upgrade to 64GB and that's it. No microSD slot, no 128GB option (Samsung discontinued the 128GB S6 in some markets).
The camera is lifted from the Galaxy S6. A 16MP sensor behind a wide f/1.9 aperture, plus optical image stabilization and auto real-time HDR. It can record 2160p video or livestream 1080p to YouTube. For selfies you get a 5MP sensor and an f/1.9 aperture.
Samsung has updated the audio department with Ultra High Quality Audio, which promises "richer" sound. This feature will work over Bluetooth with new compatible Level On headphones.
The Galaxy Note5 checks wireless all boxes, but a highlight is Samsung Pay, which works over NFC or MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission). Pay will launch in the US in September so it will be ready when Note5s arrive in users' hands.
The updated fingerprint sensor is available to secure transactions and other features of the phablet.
Much like the storage, the battery has been sealed off. What's more the capacity dropped to 3,000mAh (220mAh down). Samsung is counting on Fast Charging – both wired and wireless! – to offset that.
The Samsung Galaxy Note5 will be available for pre-order today, coming in Black Sapphire, White Pearl, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium.
It will be available in the US on August 21, with pre-orders starting today. You can go for a hands-on as soon as tomorrow in 7,000 locations across the US. Pricing will be announced by the carriers.

It's official, Microsoft launched the next generation of Windows called Windows 10 which will run on PCs and laptops, smartphones and tablets. as well as servers.
As you may already know Windows 10 was tested by over 4 million people around the world before its launch and according to Microsoft, Windows 10 is built from the ground up for a world in which mobile - and cloud computing are key. Executives from the company said it was committed to making Windows 10 friendly for the enterprise, ideal for keyboard and mouse users, but also optimised for touch. Oh, and Windows 10 will put the same interface on devices with displays ranging from 4-inches to 80-inches.
'One product family, one platform, one store,' says Microsoft.
What's new in Windows 10
Looks familiar in the images? Yes you are right, the start Menu is back containing standard Windows software and Windows apps with modern UI.
This time the Start menu is improved, and it may even make Windows apps useful. Look to the left and you'll see a list of your most-used apps, just as in Windows 7. At the bottom we see an 'All apps' shortcut, plus shortcuts to File Explorer, Settings and – conveniently – shut down and standby.
Also Microsoft has retained the functionality of the Windows 8 Start screen over on the right, with resizable Live Tiles so that you can immediately check unread mail or Calendar appointments. The Start Menu is customisable - you can resize it, and rearrange the tiles, create groups of tiles, and you can also revert it back to the Windows 8 Start Screen if you wish to.
Instead of placing a search box in the Start menu, or hiding it completely as is the case in Windows 8, Windows 10 sticks it front and centre on the Taskbar. This is a smart move, as it’s always there ready to serve up whatever you need to find or what to know. If you’ve ever used a phone running Windows Phone 8, you’ll probably know Cortana already. The beauty is that you can type or talk to her and it’s the same in Windows 10. Cortana can save reminders for you, show you news about specific topics, show you a list of topics containing the word you type to her and last but not least she can set alarms, record notes, play specific music, launch apps and give you directions on a map.
There's a new web browser in Windows 10, and it offers some unique features. As well as the reading mode you may already be familiar with from other browsers, which strips away page furniture so you can focus on the content, there's a new annotation feature which lets you highlight things and add notes and crop to a certain area of the page before sending them to others. The new browser of Microsoft is really quick and can certainly compete against Google Chrome and Firefox.
Want to upgrade to Windows 10? Why not as you may already know that the new operating system by Microsoft is free to upgrade from if you are already running Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 so there is really no reason not to upgrade unless you really need to continue using the OS you are using now. The bottom line is that Windows 10 is a great operating system. Indeed it’s fair to say even at this early stage that it’s the best Windows yet. It’s not perfect, of course, and there will undoubtedly be bugs that need fixing, so expect patches and updates very soon.
It's official the handset is now listed on the Korean manufacturer's China website and we can finally say that the company's thinnest phone to date is a reality and relieve ourselves of the sea of information that has been bombarding the rumor mill.
The Samsung Galaxy A8 has a metal frame with a curvature very similar to that of the Galaxy S6, but the glass on the back has been replaced by aluminum, as is typical for the A-series. The handset has a profile of just 5.9mm and packs a 5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display, yet still manages to keep thinks on the light side weighing in at 151 grams - quite modest for a phablet.
Under the hood, there is a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC, with one cluster of Cortex-A53 cores working at 1.0 GHz and another ticking at 1.5 GHz. RAM is 2GB, onboard storage can be either 16GB or 32GB and there is also a microSD card slot. The memory expansion slot is shared with the second SIM slot so you can't get both dual-SIM and microSD at the same time, though.
In terms of connectivity the Samsung Galaxy offers 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS with Glonass and Beidou support, as well as NFC.
Another high-end feature present in the Galaxy A8 is a fingerprint reader, just like the flagship models. The unit is powered by a 3,050 mAh battery and Samsung promises 304 hours of standby time. As far as we currently know, color options include white, black and gold.
According to a report out of China the Galaxy A8 prices will start at 3,199 CNY or about $515 for the 16GB version, those who opt for double the internal storage will have to pay 3,499 or $565. If that seems a bit excessive for a mid-range smartphone bear in mind the fact that this is Samsung’s most feature-packed mid-range smartphone ever and also the thinnest handset it has ever produced.
Intel has launched their latest 750-series solid state drives which are based on a PCIe and NVMe interfaces, giving the users much higher performance than the company’s SATA SSDs.
According to Intel's product marketing engineer Jeff Fick the new 750 series offers such performance and delivers the “highest SSD performance” anyone will see for a long time.
Want to know about the read and write speeds? Well the 750 PCI SSD can deliver read speeds of up to 2400MB/s and write speeds of up to 1200MB/s, and also they can reach 440,000 IOPS in read and 290,000 IOPS in write mode. The drives employ 20nm class chips.
Fick also said that “The sequential performance is quite high and added that Intel’s focus was on random performance, demanded by workstation users.
These aren’t Intel’s first non-SATA drives, but they are the first PCI and NVMe drives intended for individual users. The company’s previous PCIe solutions were designed for data centres rather than workstations.
While the drives aren’t available in SATA flavours, there is a 2.5-inch version, but it’s 15mm thick , 2.5" and requires a special connector which you won’t find on most machines. The PCIe model ships in the form of a half-height PCIe card.
Prices and capacities for these badboys are set to $390 for the 400GB version and $1,030 for the 1.2TB.
And the latest flagship from Samsung is finally here coming in two versions. The brand new device Galaxy S6 which has been launched at MWC 2015 this time is joined by the Galaxy S6 Edge which features a curved screen in both sides (remember last year's one side curved Galaxy Note Edge). The two devices pack the same specification apart the two side curved display and the battery.This year samsung made the phones more attractive with fusion of "glass and metal" which is more solid and has a premium feeling when holding it while the size certainly more impressive.
Sadly the glass and metal design won't leave room for waterproofness (let's hope that it is going to be on the S6 Active - if they condinue the "Active" line up) as well as a non-removable battery and no microSD card slot. Bare in mind that the device will be available in 32, 64 and 128GB.
Samsung will continue with their Super AMOLED displays as we see for quite long time now but this time will go with QHD resolution of 2560x1440 pixels just like "Galaxy Note 4". This means the display of the device will be more clear and crisp with more ppi's (577).
Samsung has made the camera one of the key features on this new phone, and has stuck a 16MP sensor on there. The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 have identical snappers, with the South Korean brand looking to keep them as similar as possible - it's just the screen that's the differentiator. This time the sensor will have an aperture of f1.9 meaning that it is going to be excellent for low light, and an improvement of 34% over the Galaxy S5.
It still has the same Auto HDR mode as before, and will show how the images will look in HDR mode before you take it - plus smart Optical Image Stabilisation will keep the shake away. Also an upgrade of the front facing camera has been made with the same low light performance (which is a big jump from last year's model).
One thing that is certainly worrying everyone is the battery capacity. The latest device by the Korean company, Galaxy S6 this year will come with only 2550mAh, while the S6 Edge will have 2600mAh, compared to the 2800mAh of the phone from last year. This means Samsung might have configured the chipset, screen and operating system in such a way to be more efficient and could therefore get away with a smaller battery, or they realised that they needed to make an amazingly designed phone in order not to lose more ground in the high end smartphone industry.
At least the phone has the ability to charge wirelessly, which means if you see a charging panel without wires, you can place your S6 down on it without worry. It can also charge up enough in just 10 minutes which will lasts for up to 2 hours of video playback thanks to the new faster charging system. "We are sure everyone needs super charging phones".
Samsung Galaxy S6 power
Now lets head under the hood of the device where a 64-bit version of the Android Lollipop (of course with Samsung's TouchWiz UI) will power on the Galaxy S6 with their own chipset "Exynos" rather than the latest "Qualcomm Snapdragon 810" like other companies do use for their smart-devices.
The decision to use 3GB inside is therefore a little bit maddening, as 4GB would have allowed the system to fully take control of the 64-bit architecture. But given taht there aren't that many apps or services out there which can make use of the extra power yet.
The Galaxy S6 does use new type of flash memory featuring in the handset called UFS v.2.0 (Universal Flash Storage) to enhance data speeds and power consumption, as well as improve speed of use - which is the reason the microSD card slot has been removed, which might not be in need this time as we said earlier Samsung will offer the Galaxy S6 in 32, 64 and 128GB variants.
Lastly you will all be wondering how much will the two devices costs but unfortunelty no mention from Samsung yet about prices but according to AndroidPit the devices will be close to the prices shown below.
- Samsung Galaxy S6 32 GB: €749 (around £560, $855)
- Samsung Galaxy S6 64 GB: €849 (around £635, $970)
- Samsung Galaxy S6 128 GB: €949 (around £710, $1085)
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 32GB: €849 (around £636, $970)
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 64GB: €949 (around £711, $1085)
- Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge 128GB: €1,049 (around £786, $1199)
VIDIA has announced their brand new mobile processor for 2015, the Tegra X1. The X1 is the first mobile processor in the world capable of 1 teraflop floating point performance, which almost puts it in the same league as desktop class GPU and current generation gaming consoles.
The X1 has a new octa-core CPU cluster, consisting of four Cortex A57 and four Cortex A53 cores with a custom CPU interconnect and cluster migration. The four A57 cores have 2MB of L2 cache between them and the A53 cores have 512KB.
On the GPU side, NVIDIA has turned to using its latest generation Maxwell architecture, which we saw on their flagship desktop GPU this year, the GTX 980. Although not quite in the same league performance-wise, the 256 CUDA core GPU in the X1 is twice as powerful as the Kepler-based GPU on the K1. It's also capable of 1 teraflop of floating point performance. To put that into perspective, the Xbox One is capable of 1.3 teraflop while the PS4 can do 1.84 teraflop.
The X1 has a 64-bit wide LPDDR4 memory capable of peak memory bandwidth of 25.6GB/s. It is also capable of outputting 3840x2160, that's 4K at 60fps, to an internal or external display with support for HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2. X1 also has improved codec supports and can decode VP9, VP8, H.264, H.265 (10-bit) at 2160p60, along with 600 MP/s (megapixels per second) JPEG encode and decode.
Tegra X1 also supports all major graphics standards, including Unreal Engine 4, DirectX 12, OpenGL 4.5, CUDA, OpenGL ES 3.1 and the Android Extension Pack.
Along with mobile use, NVIDIA also has planned other applications for the X1, namely in automobiles, with its newly announced NVIDIA DRIVE car computers. The DRIVE PX computing platform will be used for autopilot applications, where two X1 processors will take input from 12 onboard cameras for features such as Surround Vision that lets you see a seamless 360 view outside of your car on your screen and Auto-Valet for automatic parking. DRIVE CX will power your car's infotainment system, such as navigation, digital instrument clusters, audio system, HVAC, and driver monitoring.
