Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Spotted on Samsung Apps Website

Samsung S4 Mini

People got a sneak peek–albeit, a very quick one–at Samsung’s Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, as it was allegedly spotted on the UK Samsung Apps page. It was quickly pulled from the site, but not before it was spotted and a screenshot of it saved by the alert folks over at Redmond Pie.

The product listing for the Galaxy S4 mini, which had the model number GT-i9195, indicated that the device was still being created by the manufacturer. No other details have been provided either officially or unofficially for the much-awaited little brother of the Samsung Galaxy S4. Rumors suggest that the device will have a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display and will have a dual-core Exynos 5-series processor running under the hood, with at least two Cortex-A15 cores working at 1.6GHz.

On the Road to the Big Reveal: Samsung Galaxy S4

Samsung Galaxy S4 Pic

If there’s anything Apple made clear with their lawsuit against Samsung for patent infringement, it’s that the latter has become a threat too big to ignore. People used to begin talking about the next iPhone even though a new one had just been released the other week, but it looks like Samsung’s up-and-coming Galaxy S4 is taking center stage and pushing all those iPhone 5S rumors to the side. Do we finally have an iPhone killer in the form of the S4?

Images from purported leaks of Samsung’s latest smartphone, along with features and specifications that the phone might come equipped with, are already flooding a number of media outlets. In case you’re late to party, we’ve got the details right here for you.

Sponsored Video: Samsung Has A New Viral Campaign With A Model And Some Familiar Faces

By David Ponce

Samsung is an undeniable leader in the HDTV market, but that doesn’t stop them from having to spend some time marketing their wares. Their new line of televisions, which they’re calling Smart TVs, feature motion controls. This allows you to wave at your screen to control what’s happening. And it’s also the basis for the video you see above, which has already garnered more than 10 million views. It features a stunning model waving at her TV, a wave which is then misunderstood by a throng of admirers to be a flirty invitation. Hilarity ensues.

You can find out more about the Smart TVs and visit Samsung’s Facebook page by clicking on the links below.

Watch Samsung’s SuperBowl Commercial

By David Ponce

Samsung is on a roll with their commercials poking fun at Apple fanboys. Their commercial that aired during yesterday’s Superbowl continued on the theme with a 90 second smorgasbord that featured The Darkness playing “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” while hordes of previously brainwashed Apple hipsters were freed from the line-up chains to celebrate in hyperbolic euphoria. There’s a Galaxy Note somewhere in there, but the overarching theme isn’t so much the features of the device as much as a not so subtle poke at fanboy mentality. It’s fun to watch.

The Coolest CES Gadget I Didn’t See

By David Ponce

CES is a big place. Much too big for my feet to canvas in it’s its entirety, so above is a video of a Samsung device. It’s a video I should have taken, because damn it, it’s pretty awesome. It’s a transparent smart window. It looks, to use the overused analogy, like it’s straight out of Minority Report. Not only is it a one-way window (you can only see out, not the other way around), but it’s touchscreen and very interactive. As you can see in the video, you can use it to check on many things, like the quintessential Twitter and Facebook. And you can also draw blinds, selecting just how much outside light gets through.

It’s a fun video to watch and it’s catching on because, well, there’s a cute girl talking about cool tech. But I can totally see this being the future, replacing our boring old perv-friendly windows of today. But as most cool prototypey tech, there’s no price or availability. Although the girl says “coming months”… That could be, like, years!

Video: Samsung Continues To Troll Apple’s Customers In New Commercial

By David Ponce

A while ago we posted a video of Samsung’s commercial for the Galaxy S II. We liked it a lot because, well, it was funny and true. It depicted stereotypical Apple customers lining up for hours for an upcoming launch, only to be made to feel stupid by the sudden appearance of Samsung’s device. Well, here’s another one. It’s just as clever and hopefully marks the start of a new campaign, like Apple “Mac v. PC”.

Deal Of The Day: $500 Off On Samsung Galaxy S II

By David Ponce

It’s an iPhone world out there but that thing isn’t the only kid on the block (a new one’s coming out tomorrow, by the way). There are people who make a point not to buy the latest from Cupertino, and if you’re one of them, perhaps the Samsung Galaxy S II is down your alley:

AT&T Galaxy S II i9100 features a 4.3″ 480×800 super AMOLED display, 3G/4G connectivity, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, dual-facing cameras (8MP rear, 2MP front), 1GB RAM, 16GB built-in storage (expandable via microSD), TouchWiz UI, HDMI, microUSB, Bluetooth, GPS, Android 2.3OS, and more.

If you’re willing to subsidize the heavy hardware with a 2 year contract, you can knock $500 off its regular $600 price. That’s $100 shipped to you for free.

Deal Of The Day: Samsung 55-Inch LED HDTV At $830 Off

By David Ponce

I have this TV. And it’s gorgeous. I bought it 18 months ago (though this one is the new 2011 model). I didn’t use money. I used debt. Yeah… quite a bit of debt to be honest, since at the time the thing was a cool $3k! But when I saw it in person, I couldn’t resist. I’m still paying for it every month and will for some time too and don’t mind so much. Though to be honest, patience really is a virtue since you can now own this for all of $1,499 with a Blu-Ray player thrown in. That’s after a 36%, $830 rebate.

Let me tell you, the UN55D6000 (sexy name) is slim like you wouldn’t believe. You can actually hang it like a painting, without needing one of those bulky metal mounts. The image is sharp and the contrast and color just take your breath away. True story. The fact that this post is sponsored has nothing to do with it. So get on it, only a few days left on this deal.

Samsung Introduces Foldable 3D TV Concept

By Colin Ackerman

I know what you’re thinking: why would anyone, anywhere, ever want a foldable TV if it doesn’t fit in your pocket, which this concept definitely doesn’t? Samsung says that by folding (or “flexing” might be more accurate) their display, they can target the 3D sweet spot to viewers anywhere in the room. My guess is that the TV would have some way of detecting the general distance and orientation to viewers, and then the screen (an AMOLED panel) would flex to optimize the 3D experience.

Samsung says that something like this might show up in 5-10 years, but it seems like that’s going to be way, way too late to solve the 3D sweetspot issue, which is just one of the many problems plaguing 3D TV. If you remember, 3D TV was one of the things being flogged last year at CES, and it seems like this year is probably going to be no different, no matter how reluctant consumers might be to buy into the questionable hype.
