As we approach the new year, Samsung Galaxy S11 rumors are really starting to fly. And if one of the most rumors is accurate, Galaxy S11 might not even be the name of the family -- it could be Galaxy S20. According to reputable gadget leaker Ice Universe, Samsung is looking to switch to the Galaxy S20 naming scheme to coincide with the year 2020. It's a plausible rumor, but one that really won't matter much to consumers in the grand scheme of things. No matter what Samsung decides to call these devices, they will be big sellers for the company like all of their predecessors. Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning. — Ice universe (@UniverseIce) December 24, 2019 The next... Read more...
The leaks continue to emanate from Samsung as the new year approaches. The company is expected to announce its Galaxy S11 family and Galaxy Fold 2 in mid-February, so it should come as no surprise that a flurry of component leaks are hitting the internet. The latest leak shows us a look at the display cover the Galaxy S11, and it proves that the device has incredibly thin bezels all around -- even at the bottom. Samsung has been shrinking the bezels of its smartphones for the past few generations, but it looks as though the Galaxy S11 takes it to a new extreme. Also visible is a single punch hole cut out for the selfie camera centered, at the top of the display. In addition to thinner... Read more...
The launch of Samsung's Galaxy S11 smartphone is fast approaching, and a fresh tweet from a reliable source claims to have inside information on when the smartphone will be officially revealed. According to Ice Universe, Samsung has penciled in a mid-February launch for the Galaxy S11 family. More specifically, Ice Universe says that the Galaxy S11 will be unveiled alongside the Galaxy Fold 2 on February 18th, 2020 in San Francisco. This date seems highly plausible, as the Galaxy S10 family and the Galaxy Fold launched on February 21st, 2019.  Rumors: Samsung Electronics is tentatively launching the Galaxy S11 series and clamshell foldable phones in San Francisco, USA on February...

When Apple releases its iPhone 12 series next year, there is a chance the next-generation phones could come with a significant bump in battery life. The same goes for Samsung's Galaxy S11 family. That's because both Apple and Samsung are sourcing smaller battery protection modules from the same company, ITM Semiconductor, with smaller circuitry to potentially pave the wave for bigger capacity batteries. For reference, Apple claims "all-day battery" life on its iPhone 11, which equates to up to 17 hours of video playback (or 10 hours of streamed video), and up to 65 hours of audio playback (with the ability to generate a 50 percent charge in 30 minutes via fast-charge). Likewise, Samsung claims... Read more...
MWC 2020 will be here before you know it, and at that event, many expect Samsung to go official with its new Galaxy S11 family. The line is expected to include the Galaxy S11+, Galaxy S11, Galaxy S11e smartphones. A new leak has surfaced, and this one drops hints about the battery and the screen the S11+ will use. One of the leaks shares an image of a battery alleged to go inside the Galaxy S11+, as verified by the SafetyKorea South Korean certification database. The database page mentions the SM-G988 smartphone, which was previously linked to the Galaxy S11+. A photo of the battery surfaced as well with markings that indicate its typical capacity is 5,000 mAh, and the rated capacity is 4,885... Read more...
We've heard rumblings in the past that Samsung's next-generation Galaxy S11 is tipped to include a 108MP primary sensor, and now that rumor has gained more credibility. Bloomberg, which generally has pretty impeccable sourcing when it comes to Apple and Samsung rumors, has some added insight on the cameras that will adorn the back of the smartphones. According to the publication, there will indeed a be a 108MP primary sensor, which is marked jump from the 12MP primary sensor used in the current-generation Galaxy S10/Galaxy S10+. More than likely, the Galaxy S11 will feature the ISOCELL Bright HMX image sensor that Samsung and Xiaomi announced earlier this year. Samsung... Read more...
When Evan Blass talks, we listen, as the notorious leaker has a stellar record of spilling the beans on unreleased products prior to their official launch. The latest product leak from Blass comes in the form of the successor to Samsung's popular Galaxy Buds wireless earbuds. According to Blass, they will be called the Galaxy Buds+ and will be going head-to-head with Apple's recently launched AirPods Pro. In fact, SamMobile claims that the new Galaxy Buds+ were developed under the model designation SM-R175, and that they will have the same amount of storage onboard as the Galaxy Buds: 8GB. Samsung Galaxy Buds The interesting development, however, is that like the AirPods Pro,... Read more...
If Samsung follows its past release schedule, we can expect the Galaxy S11 to make a debut in just a few months. Waiting is the hard part, obviously, though it gets easier with the cornucopia of leaks that precede these sort of things. As it were, a bunch of unofficial (but probably accurate) renders showcase what to expect, in terms of the Galaxy S11's design. This is the latest in a growing string of leaks around the Galaxy S11. What we have are renders depicting one of the potentially five models Samsung has on tap, which are rumored to arrive in three different sizes.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fans will want to check out Shattered Web, the latest operation for the game. With Shattered Web, a bunch of new features have been added to the game.

How good does the camera in your pocket need to be? Well, if your name is Samsung, the answer appears to be "extremely" good. Samsung has started rolling out a new version of the Samsung Camera app in One UI 2.0 beta 4, and a quick tear-down of the new APK (courtesy of XDA Developers) reveals a few interesting secrets.

Short of having official confirmation on a next-generation Samsung phone directly from the South Korean handset maker, the next best thing is leaked information by Evan Blass, who goes by @evleaks on Twitter. The guy has been super reliable in revealing accurate specs and renders of unreleased handsets. We bring this up because his latest bit of leaked information reveals some interesting details about the Galaxy S11. Samsung has not gotten around to announcing the Galaxy S11 yet, and if it sticks with its past release schedule, the flagship handset will get an unveiling sometime in February 2020. So, we have to wait around three more months before we know for sure what the Galaxy S11 will bring... Read more...
Camera performance is a point of focus for smartphone makers, and one thing we have seen lately is a growing number of sensors being implemented into flagship handsets—as many as four rear cameras, in some instances. And of course smartphone makers are pushing higher megapixel counts. As it pertains to the latter, rumor has it Samsung's Galaxy S11 could end up with a 108-megapixel sensor. That would be a gigantic jump in the number of pixels compared to the Galaxy S10+, which wields a 16-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens, 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, and 12-megapixel telephoto lens for rear camera duties (along with a 10-megapixel front shooter for snapping selfies). The Galaxy S11 has a... Read more...
When it comes to today's smartphones, it seems as though we've fallen into a "rut" of sorts, with iterative updates that don't really push the boundaries forward with respect to design. We've seen this across the smartphone industry with iterative updates like the Samsung Galaxy S10 family and the Apple iPhone 11/iPhone 11 Pro which launch this Friday. Samsung has, on the other hand, taken some steps into a radical new direction with the Galaxy Fold. According to newly uncovered design patents, Samsung could be looking to expand its use of flexible display technology to its more mainstream product lines. This shift comes to us courtesy of LetsGoDigital, which has produced... Read more...
