T-Mobile has announced a software update for its version of the Galaxy S5 that, while nothing exciting, should address an issue some customers have experienced. The change log contains a single item, an improvement that alleviates occasional incoming SMS/MMS failure. Following the update, the S5 should receive messages more reliably, assuming it hasn't worked fine for you thus far. The version number is G900TUVU1ANE5.

The update is 131MB large and is available as an OTA or via Samsung Kies.

Earlier today, T-Mobile announced that it would start selling the gold Galaxy S5 on May 30th. As it turns out, this is the launch date for all of the major carriers in the US. Come the end of this month, a blinged out version of the S5 will be available from the likes of AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, and Verizon as well.

With a simultaneous release across so many carriers, this isn't about exclusivity.

Starting next week, T-Mobile will bolster its lineup of available Samsung hardware. The big news here is the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition, which will fill the somewhat shallow ranks of T-Mo's tablet selection. Magenta customers will also get access to the Galaxy S5 in Metallic Gold (Gooooooold!) starting on May 30th. The new color variant will be available online and in some retail stores, but only "for a limited time."

The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition will be available starting June 4th, but if you're really excited, you can get a pre-order in right now.

Even though Samsung went out of tis way to make the Galaxy S5 water and dust resistant, it seems to think there is still a place for an "Active" variant this time around. The device has shown up in a few videos and it seems to be destined for AT&T in the US.

Just like last year's GS4 Active, this one has physical buttons on the front in place of the capacitive/physical array on Samsung's regular devices.

AT&T has announced that the Galaxy S4 Mini, yes - the phone that came out back in November, is coming to the carrier May 23rd with HD Voice. It will be the first device on the network with support for making VoLTE (voice over LTE) calls. The handset isn't available for pre-order, but the carrier does have it listed as "coming soon."

AT&T is the first carrier to support making voice calls over LTE, supporting simultaneous voice and data over the IP network.

The Galaxy S5 is a pricey phone, the cost of which the big four American carriers typically offset by pushing consumers towards two-year contracts. They generally also offer the choice to pay for the entire phone upfront, but people who want to own the phone outright and have the several hundred necessary to do so stand to benefit from shopping around for the lowest price, and lowest commitment, option available. Today both Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile have added their names to the list of providers willing to sell a Galaxy S5, doing so for $599.99 with no contract.

Rumors have been circling of an upgraded version of Samsung's Galaxy S5 flagship for a few months now, including the idea that it will feature the metal body that's been desired by at least some Samsung fans for quite a while. A pair of leaks for the supposed device have surfaced this weekend, one on video and one in a set of photos. And they can't both be right.

The video above shows off what's alleged to be a pre-production phone smuggled out of Samsung.

If you were tempted to pick up a refurbished Galaxy Note 10.1 during the deal we posted earlier this week, but the 16GB internal storage left you wanting, an even more enticing offer just appeared on eBay. For just $11 more, you can score a model with 32GB built-in!

Specs:

  • 10.1-inch 2560 x 1600 Super LCD display (~299 ppi)
  • Exynos 5 Octa (1.9 GHz Quadcore + 1.3 GHz Quadcore)
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB internal storage + MicroSD expandable storage
  • Wi-Fi
  • 8MP rear camera / 2MP front camera
  • S-Pen Stylus

These are manufacturer refurbished units and should operate as if they are fresh off the factory floor, but they may have "light signs of use." This is a pretty remarkable deal for a 2014 model (released Oct 2013), especially since $415 is the lowest price available for a matching refurbished unit on Amazon.

The Galaxy Tab 3 might not be the best line of tablets available, but this is a legit deal. The Tab 3 10.1 is still listed for $300 on Amazon, so this refurbished deal is a good value if you're looking for big, cheap tablet. That's how we like 'em – big and cheap.

People keeping up with Android over the years may have noticed that Samsung spits out a ton of devices. Heck, people who haven't been keeping up know that much, making this potentially the least surprising sentence I write all day: Samsung has more tablets on the way. We can expect the company to unveil them at the 2014 Galaxy Premiere event on June 12th. Invites have gone out, with attendees expected to show up at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
