The Samsung Galaxy S5 may seem like one heck of a device, featuring a IP67 rated build for dust and water resistance and packing all the latest and greatest hardware under its 5” hood, but how much does it really cost to make the latest flagship smartphone from Samsung?

It looks like the iPhone 6 leaks just wouldn’t stop; over the past 2 days, several different leaks have been unleashed into the World Wide Web, showing off a bigger iPhone 6 with a new design. The leaks include images claiming to be the front panel of the next generation iPhone, mockups, as well as cases.
In an interview with Reuters, Samsung’s Senior VP for Product Strategy, Han Kil Yoon has confirmed that they will be releasing an Android Wear smartwatch and “high-end” Tizen based Smartphone this year. This is almost eerily similar to last year when those plans did not come through due to “poor market conditions”. Samsung have said that they will be concentrating their efforts mainly in “a few countries they can do well in”.
If this is to be believed we will be getting a high end Tizen phone by the end of june and the Android Wear watch by the end of the year. I for one will be excited to see what the combination of Android Wear and perhaps a curved display will bring!

The name Amazon may not be the first thing on your mind when you talk about a smartphone but if all things goes to plan with their first smartphone, it may just be a talking point for a while to come. While the above image resembles the lovechild of a Lumia device and a BlackBerry Z device, it’s worth noting that it’s merely a case to house internals and is not the actual finished design.
