An Android 6.0 Marshmallow update schedule for Samsung devices has been leaked online, according to a report in Tech Times. This new leak contains a more updated release schedule for the newest Android OS, with notable additions to the list such as additional devices and changes in terms of release schedules for the list of devices.
Tech Times had earlier reported that a "roadmap" for Samsung devices had earlier leaked, and this recent leak has apparently replaced that previous list. The current list includes arrival times for the OS update on Samsung devices such as the Galaxy Note 5, Note 4, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus, among others.
This recent leak confirms an earlier report of a Galaxy Note 5 owner who received the Marshmallow update that the flagship phablet will be the first to receive the update. According to the list, the Note 5 is on top of the list, with its status marked as "Uploading" and its estimated arrival date pegged in December 2015. more >>
"Dying Light" is receiving its first standalone expansion pack called "The Following" sometime during the first quarter of 2016. The open world first person survival game has been devoid of any new content since the game's last DLC "The Bozak Horde" which was released in May 2015. Fans of the game are excited about the upcoming expansion pack as developer Techland promised that the coming expansion will be as big as all the maps in the original game and its DLCs combined. According to an IGN report, however, this new content will be costing gamers $5 more than the original price.
The report said that developer Techland released a press release explaining the price hike, which not only goes for the DLC pack, but also for the game's Season Pass. Originally, "The Following" was priced at $15 for the standalone pack. The new price for the expansion pack is now pegged at $19.99/€19.99/£15.99. The impact of this price increase on the Season Pass will take effect on December 8, where it will now be selling for $29.99/€29.99/£23.99, up by $10 from the original $19.99 price. Those who have previously purchased the Season Pack do not need to pay extra, while those who wish to avail of the pass for the current price are urged to make the purchase before December 8.
Techland cited that the reason for their decision to increase the price is "the increased scale of the project." They said in their press release: "Over the past weeks Dying Light: The Following has almost reached its final stage: main quests, side quests, new skills, and driving challenges are ready." When they started polishing it, they realized that it had so much content that it could even be developed into a standalone title for the series, but they decided against it because it meant making their fans wait. more >>
There have been sparse official news from GoPro Inc. about the specs, price, and release date of the latest iteration of the GoPro Hero, leaving fans of the action camera to speculate on why the company has delayed the release of the hotly anticipated device.
According to Neurogadget, the GoPro Hero 5 was slated for an October release. But with that month drawing to a close, reports came out that the company decided to move the release date to early 2016, saying that the delay was made so that improvements could be made on the new camera. For the record, GoPro Inc. has not released a launch date for the GoPro Hero 5 and is unlikely to announce a 2015 launch with just over a month left in the year. This has left many sports and adventure enthusiasts who were looking forward to a pre-holiday release disappointed.
Last month, MarketWatch reported that the delay may have affected the company's profits, as GoPro shares took an all-time low after the company was reported to have missed its third-quarter profit and sales goals. Analysts suggested that the company's error was in failing to launch the GoPro Hero 5 and, instead, promoting the smaller Hero 4, which was released in September 2014. more >>
The Huawei Mate 8 flagship phablet is now being touted as a direct competition to Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and some reviews say it is even better than its bigger rival.
The Chinese manufacturer may not be as popular as Samsung in the high-end market, but its new Android-powered Huawei Mate 8 has taken the phablet to a whole new level. The newly unveiled flagship device may even be better than the Galaxy Note 5, according to Forbes.
Recenlty, Samsung has opted for sealed batteries and no microSD card slot in its recent flagship devices. Although Huawei Mate 8 has a 4,000 mAh fixed battery, it has a microSD card slot and is more affordable, and these things present a very big advantage for the phablet. Samsung, on the other hand, is rumored to have decided to bring back microSD support next year, the report relays. more >>

After being evaluated in terms of design, efficiency, performance, engineering excellence, safety, and value, the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was proven to be above the Audi TT, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Toyota Mirai, BMW 7 Series, and Mercedes AMG GT S. When all else is striving to follow what the crowd wants, the sixth-generation Camaro refuses to be anything but average, according to Left Lane News.
