The Korean electronics giant that brought the Galaxy brand name to the world – and made it extremely successful – is trying to fill every single niche in the smartphone market and slap the Galaxy name on it. Samsung realised with the Galaxy S4 Zoom that it took the shine from its flagship device, so completely renamed it this year.

What would have been the Galaxy S5 Zoom has become the Galaxy K Zoom and it is ready to take on any cameraphone on the market. It is equipped with a 10x optical zoom and OIS and if you were to see only its back, you would hardly recognize you are staring at an Android smartphone with a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED screen on the other side.

Check out some of the key features of the Galaxy K Zoom: (more…)

LG is not leaving a lot to announce at the IFA 2014 trade show. They have taken the wraps off of their circular smartwatch, called the G Watch R (presumably for ‘round’).

According to LG, it is the first “watch-style” wearable in the world. It will be using a P-OLED display, and will be utilizing 100% of the watch face for the screen. Motorola’s reluctance to thoroughly explain the need for the small black bar at the bottom of the Moto 360 does seem to be costing them now. (more…)

Finally, it seems that things are changing in the world of Android phones. And this change is mostly coming from the lesser known manufacturers. Heave manufacturer skinning is giving way to cleaner, pure Google interfaces – the way Google intended Android to be.

In the past we could only find this on Nexus devices, but now many companies have heeded Google’s call to keep the modifications minimal, the latest of which is ZTE. This may actually be a very significant shift, as ZTE is not a small player these days. ZTE says it will feature the Google Now Launcher on its phones. (more…)

All fans of stock Android, rejoice! It seems that we will be seeing a new Nexus smartphone, even after all the talk that the programme has been cancelled and that it has been replaced with Android Silver.

Some rumours pointed towards the device being called the Nexus 6 (as it is the 6th Nexus smartphone and also rumoured to have a 5.9 inch display), but it seems those were incorrect. Today we’re seeing reports that looks to shoot down these earlier rumours, as the Motorola built phone will be called the Nexus X. (more…)

Although few and far between, there are some people out there who are fans of anything other than Android or iOS. Many were happy to hear Tizen would add more flavour to the mobile operating system market, but unfortunately it has seen a rocky start to get off the ground.

In an interview, Richard Yu (who heads up the company’s consumer business group) spoke about the company’s plans regarding Tizen, Windows Phone and a long-rumoured homegrown OS, and basically said they were all doomed. (more…)
