Verizon has announced that it is now offering Samsung Galaxy Core on its network for mere 8 dollars a month on its Verizon Edge plan. You can purchase the phone for mere 29 dollars on a two year contract on February 26.
The Samsung Galaxy Core is a part of Samsung’s budget Android phone series. You get 4.5 inch display, 1.2 GHz quad core processor, 8GB of flash storage, micro SD card slot, 2000 mAh battery and a rear camera packing 5 megapixels.
Galaxy Core runs Android 4.4 kitkat operating system with capacitive buttons, Touch Wiz home launcher and a good-looking capacitive buttons.
Samsung has released one of the best phone designs lately by releasing Galaxy A7 and Note 4 both of which look better than offerings of HTC and Apple. Spigen is one of the biggest accessory maker and today it has leaked Samsung Galaxy S6 official picture on its amazon’s sales page.
Often case makers get specifications and dyes of upcoming devices from companies so that they are able to offer them at launch. So it may not be official picture but very close to official. Spigen has been doing this from past many years and they do in fact have decent track record.
Android enthusiats has brought official support for Cyanogenmod on the T-Mobile and Sprint variants of the Galaxy Note 4. This clearly shows the love-hate relationship of Samsung android phones and its users. You can download CyanogenMod for Sprint and T-Mobile Note 4 from links given below. Both are using the latset CM12 framework which implies they are based on Android 5.0 lollipop.
Do not expect them to be completely bug free though as they are all nightlies and bugs are to be expected. Right now only Tmobile and Sprint variants are supported as AT&T and Verizon have locked down their devices to a greater degree.
On any other Samsung, I would jump at the chance to install CM12. The Note 4 though? Sadly, I think I’d miss all those TouchWiz features that make this big screen truly useful: S-Pen, Multi-Window, Popup Window, etc. Maybe Google will work in some phablet features in the next big Android release.
Samsung has released a bigger version of Galaxy Alpha and it is called the Galaxy A7. It is a bigger brother to the previously announced Galaxy A5 and A3 and has similar thin, minimal design and metal bezel and frame. Of course since it is bigger, it is a direct challenger to company’s own Note 4 as it also packs 5.5 inch display.
Galaxy A7 specs
You get 1.8GHz octa-core processor on the standard model and a slightly slower 1.5GHz octa-core on the dual-SIM version. Specifications include 5.5” display, 16 gigabytes of flash storage, Micro SD card slot, 2GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel rear camera + 5MP front-facing webcam with Samsung’s standard wide-angle lens, and a 2600mAh battery.
It will be offered in black, white, and gold. The battery is non removable and so is the SIM slot and micro SD card slot. To access the slots, you must use a SIM card tool. Samsung did not tell us its price but we have been told that it will be priced very competitively – just like A5 and A3. Its release date was not mentioned.
