There’s a lot of stuff that happens in the tech industry, something that is especially true when it comes to giants like Samsung. If you missed out on some (or all) of what happened in the last 24 hours or so, well, here’s a recap of all the big things that went down.

SamMobile published exclusive news on Samsung’s plans for updating its devices to Android 4.4.2 and Android 4.4.3, with the latter currently being integrating into the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S4 LTE-A. The Galaxy Tab S leaked out in pictures again, this time with its vivid AMOLED screen on full display (no pun intended), while another upcoming device, the Galaxy S5 Prime, was spotted heading to India for testing and evaluation.

Leaked patents revealed Samsung’s plans to launch a smartwatch with a circular screen, which would make it the company’s most attractive smartwatch if it gets released. We also saw a couple of new Samsung phones get launched – a feature phone called Master was launched in South Korea, while a new variant of the Galaxy S4 with the latest version of Android went up for sale in the Netherlands. A new budget Android device running KitKat was also spotted, sporting a 4.3-inch screen.

Here’s the full rundown:

As usual, a lot of devices got firmware updates as well, so here’s a list of all the updates that rolled to Samsung devices yesterday (as always, you can find all the firmware you need in our firmware section):
