With 2014 having spawned the Xperia Z2 and Z3, it’s probable that the Xperia Z5 will follow the Z3+ / Z4 into the market before the year’s out. Thanks to a leak, we have a purported glimpse of the device alongside the Z5 Compact, with Apple’s iPhone 6 used as a sizing gauge.
The fingerprint sensor has, over the past couple of years, established itself as a mainstay feature of the flagship sector. It hasn’t quite reached the realm of necessity as, say, a front camera or a full HD display, but many accustomed to having a scanner in-built would perhaps now struggle to go without.
A tipster operating under the handle @vizileaks on Twitter has shared an image of what may be the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact. Unannounced and unconfirmed at this stage, the snap gives a teaser of the fingerprint sensor that Sony looks poised to include, placed on the right side of each device and forcing the volume rocker to relocate lower down.
Samsung simply loves to flood the market with its devices! Even if it already has a good number of models in a particular segment of the market, it’ll just continue launching more and more just to make sure that the competition’s offerings get lost in the sea of Samsungs.
OK, we don’t know if that’s really the strategy behind Samsung’s actions, but today’s news from Seoul certainly doesn’t refute it… The company has officially announced yet another Android smartphone, the Galaxy Core, and even though this model will not treat you to the very best of Android, it’ll certainly deliver all the core goodies that the platform and Samsung can offer.
The Samsung Galaxy Core will be a low- to mid-range model with a 4.3″ WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor (possibly a MediaTek or something like that), 5MP camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. One of its more interesting features is that it will come in a Dual SIM variant, where the two SIM card slots will be able to remain active simultaneously.
The Galaxy Core will come with the lovely TouchWiz Nature user interface and all of its useful features like Smart Stay, S Voice and Smart Alert, with the last one alerting you to missed calls and messages once you pick the phone up. Neat stuff!
Users who are willing to purchase the dual-SIM version of the Samsung Galaxy Core will be able to do so as soon as this month, while those who’d prefer the single-SIM variant will have to wait until July. The company hasn’t announced the markets where the Galaxy Core is going to launch, but Europe and Asia are safe bets.
The Galaxy Note II is about to get two additional paint jobs. Well, at least the South Korean one is.
According to a leaked image, the two new colors are Ruby Wine and Amber Brown.
The Galaxy S III is already available in a bunch of colors, so it make sense for its bigger brother to follow suit. The Galaxy S III already has an Amber Brown version, while its red variant is called Garnet Red, so there’s some difference.
There is no info on whether those colors will leave South Korea, but I guess it will happen soon or later, just like it happened with the Galaxy S III paint jobs.

It seems that Whatsapp last seen functionality is down now. And the connection issues are not fully restored yet.
The rivalry between Apple and Samsung just moved to a whole new dimension, people! The popular YouTube series “Will It Blend” featured the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Apple iPhone 5 side by side to determine which one blends better.
For those of you who have followed this particular channel in the past, there is no need to tell you that it is the $500 Blendtec blender which ends up as the winner. I must however note that the Samsung Galaxy S III appeared to hold its ground against the blades much longer than the iPhone 5. See for yourself in the video below.
