There’s a lot of stuff that happens in the mobile 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.

The biggest scoop of the day was the fact that Samsung finally announced the first Tizen-powered phone, the Samsung Z, which is slated to launch in Russia in the coming months and packs features like a fingerprint sensor. Samsung also announced its 7-inch smartphone in South Korea, unveiling what is surely it’s most out of whack form factor. The Gear 3 was also rumored – Samsung is reportedly planning to launch it alongside the Galaxy Note 4, at IFA in September.

The first near-live photos of the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 leaked out, giving us a look at what could be among the most thin tablets we’re ever laid our eyes on. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition LTE model received its KitKat update, and Samsung announced plans to launch a developer SDK for its Tizen-based TVs.
