SamMobile Recap: Galaxy S5 with Snapdragon 805, Galaxy Tab S AMOLED display explained, and more


Last updated: June 17th, 2014 at 10:56 UTC+01:00

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.

A Galaxy S5 with a Snapdragon 805 processor and 225 Mbps LTE-A connectivity was rumored for an imminent launch in South Korea, while the standard Galaxy S5 managed to become the best smartphone camera in the latest ratings by the camera experts over at DxOMark. In other Galaxy S5 news, the AT&T and Verizon variants were finally rooted, thanks to an awesome new hack called towelroot.

Samsung decided to give us an insight on how the Super AMOLED displays on the newly announced Galaxy Tab S tablets give them the edge over the competition (and over Samsung’s own tablets with LCD displays. Samsung also decided to drop its ITC complaint against Apple devices, and Apple decided to do the same, giving both companies some breathing space before they go back to war in the courts.

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):
