T-Mobile’s Galaxy Tab S 8.4 Gets An OTA Update To Android 5.0.2

Expedia releases an app exclusively for Samsung.

Expedia already has apps for both Android and iOS devices, but the travel website has released another one exclusively for Samsung Galaxy phones. Samsung smartphone owners will have known since April that S Health is a great all-rounder of a fitness app, but the good news is that it is now available across all Android devices.

Facebook announced today (Sept. 23) that users can now post immersive videos shot on 360-degree cameras, like GoPro’s spherical rigs, on the social network.Samsung’s latest flagship “Project Lucky” or the Galaxy S7, will likely be similar to other recent flagships, in that it will release in two models.

S Health tracks steps taken and calories burned over time as well as serving as a food diary, setting fitness goals and creating custom fitness programmes. Right now, the spherical videos only work on the web, and on newer Android devices. (Quartz tried to open the video on a Samsung Galaxy S6 and a Moto X, but received an error message in both instances. Depending on your smartphone and accompanying sensors, this app also tracks SpO2 (oxygen saturation) levels, ultraviolet exposure, heart rate, and – relatedly – stress level.

What makes it sound useful for frequent travelers, though, is its dedicated customer support line, which promises to answer questions and help you resolve issues “no matter the day or time.” That said, the new app might be worth installing even if you don’t find any of those particularly compelling, if only for the $50 discount you’ll get for your first hotel reservation over $250. Where these videos come into their own is on mobile: You can see different aspects of the video as you move your phone around, which when filmed properly, can produce some pretty stunning effects. Finally, with the option to manually add in caffeine and water intake, this app displays an exhaustive list of health and fitness trackers in one place.

The company wasn’t immediately available for comment on how Oculus will play into immersive videos on the site, but Facebook may have just taken its first step to bringing the social network to Oculus. In particular, Canada’s Bell Mobility, Korea’s KT, LG Uplus, SKTelecom and Cricket, AT&T, MetroPCS, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon in the U.S. will likely offer the phones.

You’ll get to keep your current user name (as long as it doesn’t contain invalid characters, in which case you’ll have to go through a few extra steps to make the transfer), and all your old comments will eventually (not immediately) migrate with you. Both tablets have a 2048×1536 resolution, use an sAMOLED panel, are powered by Samsung’s octa-core Exynos 533 chipset and have 32GB of internal storage. Right now, spherical videos are not that common, as the camera rigs—like GoPro’s—required to shoot them are expensive and bulky, but they produce some amazing results.

When it comes to the processors, it seems that one would possess an Exynos 8890 processor with the other one opting for Qualcomm’s reliable Snapdragon 820. As far as the imaging is concerned, the company is still testing various prototypes including a dual camera set up and some with a 20MP ISOCELL camera sensor. If it can figure out how to make 360 capture as affordable as its regular cameras, or perhaps how to incorporate this technology into its forthcoming drones, it’ll have another massive success on its hands. After using the Exynos 7420 chip in all models of the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+ in 2015, Samsung is currently testing the Snapdragon 820 to see whether its quality has improved enough for implementation into upcoming devices.

The first countries to receive the flagship device would include the United States, Canada, Europe, China and South Korea (that doesn’t mean other markets won’t see them in future). The social videos of tomorrow could soon feel as immersive as being there—imagine a video popping up on your newsfeed from a friend’s wedding you weren’t able to attend. Samsung’s 2015 flagships have been heavily criticized for the lack of microSD expansion, despite the fact that Samsung attempted to compensate for this move by offering larger internal storage options.
