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.

We wrote our opinion on why we think Samsung needs to come up with better, more optimized software if it ever hopes to compete in the low-end market in the near future. The Galaxy Note 3 was rumored to be getting a price cut, while the Galaxy Note II on Verizon became up to date in terms of software with an update to KitKat. Samsung launched a couple of new curved Ultra HD TVs and showcased improved OLED TV display technology, while a low-end handset for US carrier T-Mobile made an appearance.

Here’s the full rundown:

As usual, a lot of devices got general firmware updates as well, so here’s a list of all the updates that rolled to Samsung devices yesterday (as always, you can download all these firmware and more from our firmware section):
