Press Renders Of LG G Flex Leak Showing 6-Inch Curved Display

Samsung made its rumored curved display smartphone official last week – it curves sideways and it's called the Galaxy Round. However, Samsung's South Korean smartphone competitor LG is supposed to be prepping a curved phone as well. Some newly leaked press renders show what is apparently the LG G Flex in all its shapely glory. As expected, it curves the opposite way and curves a lot.

Like Samsung's phone, the G Flex is expected to have a curved AMOLED screen rather than just curved glass like past devices. It's not that curved phones are common, but this top-to-bottom curve is more what we all expect when hearing about curved screens – it's more like a banana than a taco.

Verizon Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900V) Now Has Root, But The Method Still Requires A Full Wipe

Last week we reported that the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 had a root method from a couple of enterprising gentlemen over at XDA. The same team-up of designgears and Chainfire has now reproduced the Root De La Vega root method for Verizon's Note 3 (model number SM-N900V), which isn't quite as appropriate as far as the name goes, but it's just as awesome.

The same unfortunate conditions apply for the Verizon version of this exploit. You'll need a Windows PC, Samsung's Odin flash tool, and a basic understanding of the tools of the trade, but that's not the worst of it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition And Verizon's Galaxy Note 3 Are Both Available Today

It's a good day to be a Samsung fan: they've delivered right on schedule. The flagship Galaxy Note 3 is available on Verizon starting today at the standard $299.99 subsidized price tag, $699.99 (ouch) unsubsidized, or $29.31 a month on the Edge plan. If you prefer your notation experience both larger and without a two-year contract, the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition (WiFi only) is also going on sale at the usual retail locations, starting at $549.99 for the 16GB model.

Say what you will about the Galaxy Note 3's ostentatious presentation, but you can't deny that it's a monster chunk of hardware.

Sprint Galaxy Note 3 Owners Complain of Garbling, Morphing, Popping, And Just All Around Terrible Audio Quality In Calls

While the Galaxy Note 3 is getting mostly positive reviews, some Sprint customers are giving it a million thumbs down for its usefulness as an actual phone. The Sprint forums (among other places) have been overflowing with complaints of poor audio quality on calls. Now Sprint has at least acknowledged there is something to investigate.

The Galaxy Round Is Samsung's Curved-Screen Phone: 5.7 Inches, 1080p, And Only In Korea For Now

We saw the usual leaks earlier today, but Samsung has just officially revealed their curved-screen device on Samsung Tomorrow. The phone goes by the name Galaxy Round, which is almost surprising, considering Samsung's pathological need to tie things into the Galaxy S line as of late. In addition to the unique curved screen, it's basically a Galaxy Note 3 minus the S-Pen.

The screen is the star of the show here: with a size of 5.7 inches and a 1080p resolution, it's similar to the one found in the Note 3 plus a bit of curvy Super AMOLED magic.

Whatchu Taco About: Alleged Leak Of Samsung's Curved Phone Shows S4 Aesthetics, Tortilla Sensibilities [Update: Another Pic And More Info]

Noted leaker and poster of pictures @evleaks just released an image that appears to show an unannounced Samsung Galaxy phone with a curved AMOLED screen. Past devices with curved glass, like the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, have had curves running from top to bottom. Not this one, though. Samsung's next device may sport a left to right curve, which makes it look kind of like a soggy taco shell.

The last round of vague hints from Samsung had this device pegged for an October release in South Korea, but nothing beyond that. The company sometimes tests tweaked versions of its devices in the home market before implementing similar features in western countries.

AT&T's Galaxy Note 3 Is Rooted, But You'll Have To Downgrade And Wipe Your Phone

AT&T might be steadfastly refusing its customers full access to the devices they "own," but it's still plenty possible to get root access on most new phones, especially if they're popular. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 certainly qualifies for the latter, and the fellas at XDA have come through once again. XDA Recognized Developer "designgears" (with a little help from the reliable Jorrit "Chainfire" Jongma) has released a working root method for AT&T's model of the Note 3 (SM-900A).

Unfortunately the steps to getting root are not altogether straightforward. You'll need a Windows PC, Samsung's Odin software, and a basic understanding of the tools of the trade (bootloader mode, download mode, and some ADB skills wouldn't hurt).

Samsung Releases Kernel Source Files For The Verizon Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900V)

Samsung has been cranking out the open source kernel files for the Galaxy Note 3 since before the device launched internationally. While the company didn't release files for every model all at once, if you take a look over at Samsung's open source site, you will find that they've been busy. They uploaded the open source kernel files for the AT&T and Sprint Galaxy Note 3's a couple of days after their release, and they're now upping their game by sharing the open source files for the Verizon Galaxy Note 3 (SM-N900V) a few days ahead of its intended launch date.

The 7-Inch Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Is Coming To Sprint On October 11th For Just Fifty Bucks On-Contract

Carrier-branded Android tablets in the US are usually offered either at outrageous prices or with a two-year contract (or both - I'm looking at you, AT&T). It's refreshing, then, to see Sprint selling at least one tablet with the conventional subsidized price. The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7-inch will go for $49.99 at Sprint stores starting on October 11th, a full $150 less than its WiFi-only counterpart.

Of course, whether or not the Tab 3 is worth even that price is open to interpretation. With a 7-inch, 1024x600 screen, it's looking mighty dated next to the latest Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HDX models.
