A little over a week ago, Samsung went official at its Unpacked event with the Galaxy S20 range of smartphones. Samsung also promised at the time that preorders would kick off on February 21, which is today. Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T are all talking about some of their special deals offered to lure customers into buying the smartphones on their service. For Galaxy S20 fans who prefer T-Mobile as their carrier, it is offering up to $500 back with a qualifying trade-in on the purchase price of Samsung's latest smartphones. Buyers will be able to get that full $500 trade-in if their trade device is an Apple iPhone down to the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9 or newer, Google Pixel 3 family or 4... Read more...
When Google launched its Stadia game streaming service, support on Android devices was incredibly limited. Somewhat predictably, the service was initially limited to Google's first-party Pixel smartphones -- devices that it has full control over with respect to both hardware and software. Now, Google is ready to expand support to a wide range of third-party Android phones from popular brands like Samsung, Razer and ASUS (but mostly Samsung). Here's the list of additional devices that will support Stadia starting on February 20th: Samsung Galaxy S8 Samsung Galaxy S8+ Samsung Galaxy S8 Active Samsung Galaxy Note8 Samsung Galaxy S9 Samsung Galaxy S9+ Samsung Galaxy Note9 Samsung Galaxy...

One of the key selling points of Samsung's recently announced Galaxy S20 family is the 120Hz refresh rate display. It's found on all three models, including the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy S20+, and the regular Galaxy S20. Interestingly, the high refresh rate is not enabled by default, and there are certain situations that will force a 60Hz refresh rate, even with 120Hz is selected. All three phones use the same type of display, the only difference being the physical size (and how that impacts the pixels per inch count). Here's a quick breakdown... Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra: 6.9-inch Infinity-O, 3200x1440, 511ppi, HDR10+, up to 120Hz Samsung Galaxy S20+: 6.7-inch Infinity-O, 3200x1440, 525ppi, HDR10+,... Read more...
The big news this week in the smartphone market has been the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S20 line of smartphones. One of the key features is the ability for the line to record 8K video, making them the first smartphones to record such high-resolution videos. Since mobile users have no experience with recording 8K video, many wonder how much space will each minute of 8K video filmed will consume on their devices -- now we know. Each minute of 8K video takes up about 600 MB of storage. For comparison, a minute of 4K video on the S10+ smartphone takes up about 350 MB of storage space. Considering that 8K video has about four times as many pixels as 4K video, the amount of space the 8K... Read more...
After months of speculation, leaks, and teases, Samsung is finally ready to get official with its next-generation family of flagship "Galaxy S" smartphones - and indeed they look pretty sweet. As predicted, the entire Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup is 5G-enabled from top to bottom, and consists of three new devices: the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra. When it comes to design, unlike last year's models, all three members of the family look similar from the front and the back -- although they obviously differ in size and you can tell the Ultra's camera is something special. In general, the Galaxy S20 series is comprised of a minimalistic design, and one that is very clear evolution... Read more...
The first smartphones using Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 865 SoC will be arriving on the market very shortly. And while many people will be looking forward to the Snapdragon 865 with respect to performance and its accompanying Snapdragon X55 5G modem, it will also usher in the era of 8K video recording for Android smartphones. Qualcomm today is showing us what the Spectra 480 image signal processor (ISP) within the Snapdragon 865 can do. Using a prototype Snapdragon 865 smartphone along with a Sony IMX586 image sensor, Qualcomm was able to capture the footage seen below at 8K, which translates into roughly 33 megapixels per frame. The footage that you see was captured back in November... Read more...
There have been numerous leaks regarding Samsung's next round of flagship phones, and namely the Galaxy S20 series, and they do not appear to be slowing down. Ahead of the launch, it has come to light that Samsung will bring a file sharing feature to Galaxy owners, likely starting with the introduction of the Galaxy S20+. The file sharing feature is called Quick Share, and it is similar to AirDrop on iOS, in that it will allow Galaxy owners to easy transfer photos and files to nearby Galaxy handsets. It conjures up memories of S Beam introduced with the Galaxy S III, but without necessitating bumping phones (or holding them real close to one another). According to the folks at XDA Developers,...

Samsung, one of the top smartphone makers in the world, is shaking things up behind the scenes as an imminent unveiling of the Galaxy S20 series of smartphones looms. Former mobile boss DJ Koh will not be overseeing the launch, however, and instead Samsung has appointed Tae-moon Roh as its new mobile chief, according to multiple reports. Koh is not out of the picture completely. He will retain his role as boss of Samsung's IT and mobile communications operations. However, Roh will take over the smartphone division and oversee the Galaxy S, Galaxy Note, and Galaxy Fold product lines, at least for the foreseeable future. For how long, well, that remains to be seen (Samsung has a history somewhat... Read more...
An alleged spec sheet has leaked that shows features of the entire three-model Galaxy S20 smartphone range. As it stands now, Samsung is expected to launch the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G, Galaxy S20 Plus 5G, and Galaxy S20 5G devices at an Unpacked event next month. We will start with the high-end version of the phone, the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G. According to the spec sheet, the device will have a 120Hz Infinity-O Dynamic AMOLED display and a Dolby Atmos stereo speaker system designed by AKG. The screen on the Ultra 5G is a 6.9-inch, 3200x1440P unit featuring a 20:9 aspect ratio and 511 pixels per inch (PPI)i. The SoC is listed as a Samsung Exynos 990 paired with either 128GB or 512GB of storage and... Read more...
Another day, another leak featuring new details of the Samsung Galaxy S20 smartphone. The latest leak came in the form of a hands-on video that can be seen below. One of the big features that the leak confirms is that the display will have a 120Hz refresh rate. The display is listed as having a 3200 x 1440 resolution and a tall 20:9 aspect ratio. While the size of the display wasn't confirmed in the leak, the S20 is expected to have a 6.3-inch screen and the Galaxy S20 Ultra a 6.9-inch screen. The hands-on has confirmed that the Galaxy S20+ will support 120Hz mode in FHD+ resolution; 120Hz mode isn't available in WQHD+ resolution. At the higher resolution, the screen uses the familiar 60Hz refresh... Read more...
Little by little, we are learning new things about Samsung's Galaxy S20 handset, which figures to be a beastly smartphone. One of the standout features will be its 120Hz display. That puts it squarely into 'gaming phone' territory (it won't be marketed as gaming phone, though), but there might be a pretty big caveat—the high refresh rate will not apply to the phone's native resolution. If you follow the rumor scene, you may recall that Samsung tipped a 120Hz display on its next flagship Galaxy phone through leaked firmware code for the One UI 2.0 beta on the Galaxy Note 9, which pointed to a hidden menu referencing 120Hz. At this point in time, there are only a handful of phones that can... Read more...
We aren't far off from the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S20 family of devices at a Galaxy Unpacked event next month. Ahead of that unveiling event, we have a new leak that tips a lot of detail about the top-end device in the S20 family. The Samsung Galaxy S10 Ultra 5G is tipped to retain its microSD slot with support for up to 1TB cards. Some had feared that the device might lose the SD card slot, so this is great news. Samsung will also offer the smartphone with 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB of storage. The big news is that the S20 Ultra will have both a 12GB of RAM and a whopping 16GB of RAM option. We already knew that the cameras would be a big deal on the Ultra, and now there are camera... Read more...
The Samsung Galaxy S20 family will be the new 2020 flagship Android device for Samsung. Instead of calling the device the Galaxy S11, as fits with the sequential order, Samsung is skipping ahead to the S20 name. While we've seen benchmarks and heard rumors about what the smartphone would offer, we have yet to see any clear images of the device in the wild until now. Keep in mind that the Galaxy S20+ 5G smartphone pictured here is the mid-range offering in the coming Galaxy line. The Galaxy S20 Ultra will allegedly sit above it, and the base Galaxy S20 will sit below it. The images turned up on XDA Developers and were sent in by an anonymous source who completely ignored the sticker on the... Read more...
What would a smartphone launch be without the usual round of pre-launch leaks and rumors? We may never find out the answer to that question, because frequent leaks are simply part of the game these days (whether they're real or controlled leaks is another matter). And so it goes over at Geekbench, where where a bit of specs and performance data has seemingly been revealed for Samsung's next generation Galaxy S20 handset. Or you can call the Galaxy S11. That is still a possibility, though rumor has it Samsung is rolling with "Galaxy 20" for its next-gen flagship phone. To avoid confusion, we will refer to it as that from here on out. All that really matters is that we are clear on this being the... Read more...
