Well, look what we have here. Just a little over two weeks after we spied the Samsung SM-C101 at the Bluetooth SIG, the handset turns up at the FCC looking for approval. As we mentioned previously, it’s what could very well be the rumored Galaxy S 4 Zoom, an S 4 handset with a large camera — essentially a sequel to the Galaxy Camera, but with phone capabilities. Indeed, the FCC report states the SM-C101 has quad-band GSM, AT&T-compatible HSPA+, NFC, WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. However, there is no mention of LTE, which leads us to doubt this device is destined for the US (though this doesn’t guarantee we won’t see a US-bound variant down the road). The listing is otherwise light on details, though we do hope that the speculations of a 16-megapixel camera turn out to be true. At least it seems we won’t have long to find out.
I’m not really a fan of Samsung’s “Mini” phones. If the phones shared the same guts in a smaller package, I wouldn’t mind, but they’re essentially different devices from their namesakes. Since I’m neither a Samsung executive nor particularly important in the grand scheme of things, I’ll just welcome the company’s latest “Mini” handset: the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. As we expected, this is, basically, a mid-range version of the company’s flagship, with similarities to [...]

The Galaxy S4 Mini won’t be quite as beefy as its bigger brother, at least according to alleged specs leaked online.
Benchmark results reportedly obtained by German blog site All About Samsung show the Mini powered by Qualcomm’s dual-core Snapdragon 400 processor. Outfitted with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the phone will offer a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display. The Mini will also come with 1.5GB of memory, an 8-megapixel camera in the back, and a 2.1-megapixel camera in the front.
Assuming the information is accurate, the downgraded specs shouldn’t come as a surprise. The Galaxy S3 Mini packs less power than the full-sized Galaxy S3. Samsung has so far been tight-lipped about the S4 Mini but could unveil the smaller phone at a … [Read more]
This week the folks at Adorama have revealed their first listings for the next generation of Samsung tablet, both the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, 8.0, and 10.1. These two devices take on the form of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 (pictured below) and GALAXY S 4, but take away the Note’s pen and modify their shape just a bit. This is the first time the devices have appeared available from a retailer in the United States, while the tablets are just hitting shelves internationally.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 works with a 7-inch display while the 8.0 works with 8 inches, 10.1 with 10.1, and so forth. The Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 will be available in White as well as in Brown, both of these in a 16GB internal storage iteration for $ 349.99 USD. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 will be available in a “Gold-Brown” (which we assume will be the same tone as the “Brown” listing” as well as in white, both of these for $ 329.99 USD.
The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 is listed at $ 199.99 and will also be coming in Gold-Brown. At the moment there is no White iteration of the device being shown at Adorama, but we must also assume that one is on the way. This release comes with 8GB of internal storage.
What’s interesting about this release of the 7-inch tablet is the knocking off of $ 25 from the price of the previous tablet of that size from Samsung – there’s a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 up on Adorama right this minute for $ 224.99 USD. Because that machine was released so recently, it also comes with the same version of Android inside: 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 comes with a slimmer body than the 2, working with 111.1 x 188 x 9.9mm and accommodating essentially the same display as its predecessor: 1024 x 600 LCD TFT. This machine works with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor of unknown origin – the Galaxy Tab 2 worked with a 1GHz dual-core processor from Texas Instruments. The same battery size exists within, and a collection of GALAXY S 4-like abilities will be appearing here as well.
So how did the price go down by $ 50? We’re in the process of asking Samsung right this minute – stay tuned!

On this quiet Monday, Samsung decided to do a little teaser for its upcoming “Premiere 2013″ roadshow event in London on June 20th. The above poster only mentions “Galaxy & ATIV,” which suggest the event will mainly feature Android and Windows-based devices. The remaining tiles show partial shots of three mysterious devices — possibly a tablet or phone, a convertible laptop (à la Sony VAIO Duo 11) and a camera (maybe the rumored Galaxy S 4 Zoom?). Obviously, we’ll be at the event to solve this mystery, so stay tuned for more.

Samsung will bring a new batch of Galaxy and ATIV phones and tablets to play in a launch event in late June, the company has confirmed, teasing the new range ahead of its UK debut. The event, to be held in the evening of June 20 at London’s Earl’s Court Exhibition Center, has been dubbed “Samsung Premiere 2013″ and will presumably see at least two devices added to the company’s line-up.
The Galaxy range needs little introduction, being headlined of course by the Galaxy S 4. One possibility is that Samsung could use the London event to reveal the Galaxy S 4 mini, the rumored smaller version of the flagship.
However, the rumor-mill hasn’t been quiet on possible Galaxy phones, with both the Galaxy S 4 Active and the Galaxy S 4 Mega expected to be unveiled sometime in the near future. Samsung’s big reveal could also be around a Galaxy Tab, perhaps the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0.
As for ATIV, that branding is a little less known than the Galaxy series. On the one hand, there are the ATIV tablets, which have so far included Windows 8 and Windows RT models; that’s been underplayed in recent months, especially after Samsung opted not to launch the RT-based ATIV Tab in the US.
The other possibility is a new Windows Phone, since Samsung uses the ATIV name for that series of devices as well. The company’s mobile emphasis has so far been predominantly on Android, but a new Windows Phone 8 device, perhaps with some of the specifications of the Galaxy S 4, could be one possibility.
However, thanks to some brand streamlining, ATIV also covers Samsung’s all-in-ones and laptops, in addition to its Windows-based tablets, so the London event could well see a broader line-up unveiled.
We’ll know for sure on June 20, with the show kicking off at 6pm BST (1PM ET/10AM PT) and livestreamed at the Samsung Mobile YouTube channel.

Not convinced by leaks, pictures or user agent profiles? Maybe Samsung can convince you: the Galaxy S 4 mini is on the way. The phone still hasn’t been officially announced, but UK users browsing the company’s Content & Services app page can find the device among the catalog’s sorting options. For now, the option is only appearing in the UK, matching rumors that the phone is bound for the same European markets as its predecessor.
