Samsung may be well-known for its TVs and smartphones, but its cameras are not as familiar to consumers. That’s one reason why the Korean electronics maker is trying to make a big splash with its consumer-friendly NX Mini unveiled in Singapore this week.

Will StarHub’s new set-top box matter with streaming video?

Samsung HD Interactive set-top box

Okay, the answer is yes, for now. Clearly, with half a million households on cable TV in Singapore, StarHub’s newfangled set-top box unveiled yesterday will still matter to some couch potatoes in Singapore.

Made by Samsung, it is the first of three to be launched and which promises an experience that is four times faster. So now, you don’t have to wait that long for the annoying menu to pop up. The interface is also less cluttered and makes you feel you are controlling a smart device, like a WD Live streaming box.

Yet, therein lies the difference. The set-top box, like it or not, is still based on old cable TV technology. There will always be a slight lag between menus, because it still needs to pull stuff down over the cable network, one made for broadcast not interactivity.

The next big thing from Samsung, specifically the Galaxy S5, started going on sale last week in Singapore for a rather hefty S$1,068. Despite keeping much to formula, though with some hardware upgrades, the top-end phone will cost more than the previous Galaxy S4, which went on sale for S$998 last year.

Sing when you’re winning, they say. Certainly Samsung is sticking to the same tune, when you see how it has barely altered anything in its latest Galaxy S5.

If last year’s Galaxy S4 seemed like a repeat of the same formula that has propelled the company to the number one spot in recent years, then 2014′s flagship phone will give you an even deeper sense of deja vu.

Samsung started rolling out its Knox security offering for its Android devices here in Singapore last month, in a bid to capture an enterprise market where the Google-based smartphones are still seen by many IT managers as vulnerable loopholes to corporate networks.

After rushing out larger, sharper screens, faster cameras and zippier processors in the past few years, smartphone makers seem to be pausing for breath by rolling out more of the same as 2014′s next big thing.

Perhaps the most obvious sign at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona this week is Samsung’s new Galaxy S5. The top phone maker’s flagship model for 2014 looks very much like last year’s Galaxy S4, except with a screen that is just 0.1 inches larger.

Samsung NotePro and TabPro

It has seemed like years since Samsung last took the tablet battle seriously, while it concentrated on its smartphones of late.

In the Galaxy NotePro and TabPro, which offer screen sizes of 12.2, 10.1 and 8.4 inches, the Korean electronics maker seems to be finally addressing the high-end market again when these tablets ship in Singapore in the next two months.

The “Pro” in the new Android tablets refers to “progressive” rather than “professional”, according to Samsung. So these tablets are meant to be top-end models for geeks seeking the latest technologies, rather than spartan gadgets for the corporate customer.

The NotePro comes with the S Pen stylus that is seen on other Samsung Note products, while the TabPro doesn’t. For Singapore, the NotePro will come in a large 12.2-inch version, while the TabPro will feature the more common 10.1-inch screen and a new, upsized 8.4-inch model.
