Nexus 10 2 Announcement Rumored for CES 2014

Nexus 10 2 Announcement Rumored for CES 2014

The Nexus 10 2 remains a rumor, but as we move into the new year attention turns once again to a Samsung made Nexus 10 2 or Nexus 10 2014 edition with updated specs and perhaps a new look for the new year.
In 2013 Google updated the Nexus 7 and introduced the Nexus 5, but only offered an Android 4.4.2 update to the Nexus 10.
For a the latter half of 2013 rumors suggested the Nexus 10 2 release was just around the corner, with several high-profile leaks suggesting Google would go for a fast and quiet Nexus 10 2 release date on Cyber Monday. Even as these dates slipped there were still rumors of a holiday Nexus 10 2 release, but ultimately that did not arrive and we are sitting on the brink of the largest consumer electronics show in the U.S. with a new rumor.
Rumors suggest a Samsung Nexus 10 2 could arrive at CES 2014.
According to the semi-reliable DigiTimes, Samsung and Google are planning to join the crowd of new tablets at CES 2014 with a Nexus 10 2 announcement. The rumor suggests the Nexus 10 2 will also use a Super AMOLED display like many other Samsung devices.

DigiTimes shares gossip and leaks from supply chain partners in Asia and the information is not always reliable, but the publication gets enough of the chatter right to warrant a mention in the run up to the event.
Google will be at CES 2014 in a small room where the company will likely meet with partners and select media, but the company doesn’t appear to have a big presence at the show. Samsung on the other hand typically takes over a huge portion of the show, which is where we would likely see a Samsung made Nexus 10 2 on display if it is announced at CES 2014.
On Monday at 2 PM Pacific Samsung will hold a 45-minute press conference where we expect to see the latest smartphone and tablet technology from the company, along with a wide array of other Samsung made devices. This would be a likely spot for Samsung to announce the Nexus 10 2, but not the only place.
With the Nexus 5, Google let the hype build and build until simply announcing the release on a company blog and putting the device up for sale. It is possible that a Nexus 10 2 could arrive in the same fashion and then show up on the show floor at Samsung to steal some hype away from competitors.
There are many Nexus 10 2 rumors that put the specs and features of the device across the board, depending on which company is making the new Nexus 10. Our Nexus 10 2 Rumor Roundup breaks down the biggest rumors.

Samsung to show 105-inch Curved UHD TV at CES

Samsung to show 105-inch Curved UHD TV at CES

With a greater number of TVs than you could shake a stick at, Samsung’s booth at the CES 2013 was really amazing, and now that the CES 2014 is just around the corner, we are having the same expectations from Samsung this time around. Their booth is expected to be the same this time as well. The company has recently made an announcement confirming that it is going to be bringing out the 105-inch curved UHD TV to CES 2014 which is around two weeks away.

The TV has been names as the “most curved” 105 inch TV by Samsung and this must be giving a little counter to LG with its own 105-inch curved TV which was announced earlier this week. The 21:9 aspect ratio on this new TV by Samsung is similar to what has been featured on the 105 inch TV by LG. Moreover, the display itself boasts 11 million pixels for a screen resolution of 5120 x 2160.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Concept Showcases Metal Design

Samsung Galaxy S5 Concept Showcases Metal Design

A new Samsung Galaxy S5 concept showcases a beautiful metal design, something that the real Galaxy S5 could have on board when it arrives on shelves to replace the current Samsung Galaxy S4.

Rumors suggest that a Samsung Galaxy S5 is on the way to replace the current Galaxy S smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S4. Reports point to a launch early next year with a release taking place in March or April. They also point to a souped up device that could potentially come with one feature that consumers have been waiting for for years.

Samsung’s next Galaxy S smartphone is thought to have Android 4.4 KitKat on board, a display that features better resolution and perhaps a small size increase, a Snapdragon 800 processor from Qualcomm, a 16MP camera, and quite possibly, a premium metal design, something that consumers have been campaigning for for years.

That still isn’t set in stone, Samsung does a great job of keeping its smartphone designs under wraps, but we’ve seen a number of designers come up with their own visions of a metal Galaxy S5. The latest from Hassan Kaymak, courtesy of Concept-Phones, depicts a beautiful metal Galaxy S5 that certainly ranks up there with the best Galaxy S5 concepts that we’ve seen.

The design is reminiscent of the HTC One’s aluminum design and it shows what a Samsung-made metal smartphone could look like should one arrive on shelves next year. Of course, there is no telling how close Kaymak’s design is to the real Galaxy S5 as the design still hasn’t leaked out to the surface and likely won’t until much closer to next year’s launch event.

Rumors are still undecided on the design of the real Galaxy S5. We’ve seen reports suggest a design that features a premium metal form factor, we’ve seen rumors suggest a Galaxy Note 3 plastic design and we’ve heard reports suggest that Samsung will debut both. Recently, a rumor suggested that the Galaxy S5 would not feature a metal design due to production issues.

With a Galaxy S5 launch rumored for February or March, consumers will likely be in the dark for several weeks and will instead have to rely on concepts to fuel their anticipation.
