Samsung is playing things extra cautious with the impending release of its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. Rumor has it that Samsung has pushed back the launch once again, this time by just a week, which means the Galaxy S8 will make its much anticipated debuted on April 28 instead of April 21. It's the second launch delay so far, as Samsung has historically unveiled new flagship Galaxy phones during Mobile World Congress. That event has come and gone. News of the new launch date comes from Evan Blass, the infamous leaker who goes by @evleaks on Twitter. According to Blass, the "person... Read more...
The public reveal of Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is a little over three weeks away, which means that the leaks are continuing to drip at a steady rate. The latest leak gives us a good look at the smartphone from nearly every angle while it is nestled within a clear, plastic case. We can clearly see the Galaxy S8’s massive Infinity Display Super AMOLED and the lack of a home button (which might take some getting used to on the part of long-time Galaxy owners). A close-up look at the area directly above the display also shows us what looks to be six sensors — we know that at least one of them is the... Read more...
You can always count on Evan Blass to spill the beans on all of the latest, unreleased smartphones and he has come through again with our best look yet at the Samsung Galaxy S8. The leaked press render gives us a clear look at the front of the device and its clear lack of a Home button. We can also see minimal bezels all around along with a bevy of sensors in the top bezel of the phone, which should encompass everything from the ambient light sensor to the front-facing camera to the iris scanner (first seen on the Galaxy Note 7, RIP). No additional details were provided with the image, although... Read more...
  It seems as though everyone is out to paint a target on Microsoft’s back when it comes to challenging the likes of the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book. Samsung is the latest to rise to the occasion with the unwrapping of the Galaxy Book 12 and Galaxy Book 10. Both tablets run Windows 10 and are backed by 12-inch and 10.6-inch displays respectively. The flagship Galaxy Book 12 comes with a Super AMOLED display that has a resolution of 2160x1440. The display also supports 10-bit HDR, which should help videos and other digital content spring to life. This high-end tablet is powered by the latest... Read more...
  Our favorite gadget leaker has just handed over specs for Samsung’s much ballyhooed Galaxy S8+ Android smartphone. The Galaxy S8+ will be Samsung’s next flagship, a distinction that it will share with its smaller Galaxy S8 sibling. According to Evan Blass, the Galaxy S8+ will have a massive 6.2-inch Super AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution (3200x1800), which is a nice upgrade from the QHD (2560x1440) resolution displays found on previous generation Samsung flagships. Other specs aren’t too surprising given what we’ve learned about the phone over the past few months. The smartphone will... Read more...
Samsung today announced that it has begun mass producing its Exynos 9 series 8895 application processor (AP), the first processor chipset built on an advanced 10-nanometer FinFET manufacturing process. It is expected that the Exynos 8895 will find its way into one of the versions of Samsung's next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8, which is slated to arrive sometime after Mobile World Congress. According to Samsung, the move to a 10nm FinFET process node comes with an improved 3D transistor structure that allows for up to a 27 percent bump in performance while consuming 40 percent less power compared...

It looks as though Samsung is expanding the capabilities of its Windows 10 unlocking app. Called Samsung Flow, the main function of the app is to allow Galaxy smartphone owners to unlock their Galaxy TabPro S Windows 10 convertible using their phone's fingerprint scanner. It also allowed users to see phone notifications on their desktop and to transfer files from one device to the other.One of the user reviews for the app complains that it will not install on his Windows 10 device. A support representative for Samsung responded to the review and reiterated to the user that Samsung Flow only works... Read more...
New pictures and clipart images purporting to show Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 handset have emerged. They supposedly originate from an unnamed tipster who performed a system dump on an unannounced Galaxy Tab S3. The pictures are not labeled, but assuming they are in fact real, the pictures are consistent with previous rumors surrounding Samsung's next flagship handset.While it may seem odd that pictures of the Galaxy Note 8 would be on a pre-production tablet, it likely has to do with a syncing ability between it and the Galaxy S8 (or some other supported interaction). Have a look.The clipart... Read more...
We thought that we had heard the last of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7, but it looks as though the story just won’t die. When we last visited the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung confirmed that the smartphone’s fiery temper was the result of irregularly-sized batteries and other manufacturing irregularities. While the cause of the Galaxy Note 7 fires and subsequent global recall is now known, there are still millions of smartphones just sitting there in warehouses, adding absolutely nothing to Samsung’s bottom line. However, a new report suggests that Samsung might refurbish its quarantined smartphones that haven’t... Read more...
Internet sleuths were all over a new listing in the Windows Store that appeared over the weekend. Developed by Samsung, the new app is called Book Settings. What caught everyone's attention is the description making a reference to a Galaxy Book, a device that does not yet exist (or has not yet been announced, anyway). This suggests that Samsung is getting ready to release a new convertible laptop for Windows 10.The description lists a handful of things contained in Book Settings, such as Battery Life Extender, Screen Mode, Pattern Log-in, a user manual, and other Samsung features. It then says,... Read more...
It's said that bad publicity is better than no publicity, though Samsung might disagree as the latter continues to pile on. Following its Galaxy Note 7 fiasco and the subsequent fire that broke out at its battery plant, the latest bad news for Samsung is that its de facto leader, Lee Jae-yong, has been arrested over his alleged role in a political corruption scandal involving tens of millions of dollars in bribe payments.Authorities have detained Lee, the 48-year-old grandson of Samsung's founder and heir apparent to take over the company, on multiple charges including bribery, embezzlement, and...

This year’s Mobile World Congress kicks off later this month, but one of 2017’s most hotly anticipated smartphone won’t be on display. We’re talking of course about Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Samsung is rumored to officially launch the Galaxy S8 family on March 29th, with a global release taking place over one month later on April 21st. However, Samsung will give us just a little taste of what to expect with the Galaxy S8 at MWC 2017. Kim Dong-jin, Samsung Chief Executive for the wireless division, says that the company will confirm launch details for the Galaxy S8 on February 26th, and... Read more...
We are still at least 6 months away from the reveal of Apple’s next generation iPhone, but leaks from the Cupertino, California-based company’s supply chain are already giving us some insight into what to expect. The latest info pouring out regards the suppliers that Apple has selected to produce the iPhone 8’s OLED display. First things first, it’s reported that Samsung has won a secondary $4.3 billion contract to produce OLED screens for the iPhone 8. Samsung has already allegedly been tasked with producing 100 million OLED screens for this year’s launch, but this contract expansion will see... Read more...
  It looks as though we have received just about as close as we’ll likely get to confirmation of the official name for Samsung’s next Galaxy “S” flagship. Notorious gadget leaker Evan Blass over the weekend tweeted that the larger-than-life smartphone will be called the Galaxy S8+. Last year’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge were equipped with 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch displays respectively. The “standard” Galaxy S8 is rumored to come with a 5.8-inch display, but will have largely the same physical dimensions as the Galaxy S7 Edge thanks to its near bezel-less Infinity Display. However, the smartphone... Read more...
