Here we go PC gamers. Samsung has just officially announced the company has begun mass production of 16-gigabit GDDR6 memory to feed the memory bandwidth needs of more sophisticated graphics processing engines (GPUs), artificial-intelligence, the automotive sector and markets beyond. Just last week the chip maker announced their 2nd Gen 8GB HBM2 memory with a scorching 307GB/s bandwidth and 2.4GB data transfer rate per pin at 1.2V. While GDDR6 doesn’t enjoy quite the same speed boosts, it does have some impressive numbers to get excited about. The new GDDR6 memory platform is built on... Read more...
Samsung has been known to release special edition handsets on occasion, and is seizing the opportunity once more with the Olympic Winter Games just around the corner. Getting in the Olympic spirit, Samsung has unveiled the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition Galaxy Note 8, and is giving 4,000 of them away to all Olympians, as well as staff members who are working the event. "Throughout our 20-year legacy as an Olympic partner, Samsung has showcased our support of the Olympic Movement by helping spread the Olympic Spirit and enhance connections through our latest technological innovations...

Samsung is gearing up to launch its Galaxy S9 handset, we already know that. But what we don't know are the specs, or any standout features that Samsung's next flagship phone might bring to the table, at least not officially. Unofficially, however, a photo showing what is supposedly the retail packaging for the Galaxy S9 has leaked out, with legible text outlining a few interesting tidbits. The leaked photo indicates that Samsung is going with a 5.8-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display on the Galaxy S9. It also makes note of the phone having 4GB of system memory and 64GB of built-in storage (there will... Read more...
Not only has Samsung ramped up production of its sought-after 8GB HBM2 chip, today the company has announced Aquabolt, its significantly faster 2nd generation HBM2. Aquabolt boasts the fastest data transmissions speeds, delivering 2.4Gbps data transfer per pin at 1.2V. Today’s announcement marks a leap forward in HBM2, a field in which Samsung was already dominating.  The company’s 1st generation 8GB HBM2 package reached speeds of 1.6Gbps pin speed at 1.2V, with a 256GB/s data bandwidth. The new 2nd generation Aquabolt delivers a 2.4Gbps pin speed at 1.2V with a 307GB/s bandwidth... Read more...
Samsung already told us that the Galaxy S9 family would not be ready in time for a CES 2018 reveal, so speculation pointed to the next potential high-profile electronics show: Mobile World Congress 2018 (MWC 2018). That speculation has now been validated, with Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh confirming that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will make their first appearance next month in Barcelona, Spain. The February unveil is a month earlier than the fireworks for last year's Galaxy S8 family, which were announced at a separate Samsung Unpacked event in New York City. Given the February reveal at MWC 2018,... Read more...
Samsung is jumping into the digital whiteboard business, offering a competitive solution to Microsoft's Surface Hub and Google's Jamboard. Like those big size displays, Samsung's Flip WM55H promotes collaborative digital engagement in the work place with a fancier solution compared to paper flip charts and analog boards. And of course remote sharing and collaboration is a big part of the Flip as well. "The often-flawed logistics of the modern meeting make it easy for participants to feel disengaged and for vital ideas and discoveries to become lost," said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President of...

In a bid to push consumers to upgrade their television sets, TV makers have been pushing increasingly large screens, some as big as 75 inches or even 80 inches. These big screen TVs do not necessarily cost a fortune, either. However, Samsung just made even the biggest consumer TVs look puny by comparison with the unveiling of its massive 146-inch modular, self-emitting microLED TV at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Samsung is pitching its new display as the screen of the future. That is reference to its micrometer-scale LEDs and not the ginormous size of the display panel, the... Read more...
Samsung is not too far away from its big debut of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagship smartphones, which are tipped to make their big debut at MWC 2018. We already know about one of the processors that will go into the U.S. version of the Galaxy S9 family: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. Today, however, Samsung is spilling the beans on its Exynos 9810 processor that will find its way into the international versions of the smartphones. Samsung says that its new 8-core SoC has four third-generation custom high-performance cores operating at a heady 2.9GHz. For less demanding tasks, there are four... Read more...
Samsung's resolution for 2018 is pretty simple—just sell as many smartphones as it did in 2017. That amounts to around 320 million handsets, and remarkably, that is considered playing it safe (to an extent). Normally companies like to increase sales on an annual basis, but for Samsung, it can afford to maintain its current sales threshold and still dominate the market, in terms of units moved. Sources told The Investor that Samsung decided not to increase its sales goal because the market is a bit saturated at the moment. Let that sink in for a moment. Samsung plans to sell 320 million handsets,... Read more...
Samsung has a new computer monitor that is aiming at both business users and gamers that will make an official appearance at CES 2018. The CJ791 QLED monitor has Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and can be connected to supported notebooks with a single cable. The monitor is also able to pass up to 85W of charging power through to the notebook to charge it up as you watch your favorite movie on the widescreen. Samsung claims that this is the world's first curved monitor to feature the Thunderbolt 3 technology from Intel. "As the pioneer of the curved monitor industry, Samsung continues to seek new ways...

Do you need any further proof that Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagships are right around the corner? Well, both smartphones recently made a visit to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with SM-G960F and SM-G965F designations for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ respectively. We should note that this early appearance at the FCC by Samsung's latest flagships is unprecedented. Droid-Life notes that the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note received their certifications in March 2017 and July 2017 respectively, and went on sale in April and August respectively in the United States. The Galaxy... Read more...
Lithium-ion batteries degrade over time, that is just the way is, unfortunately. To deal with that, Apple made the unpopular decision to throttle the performance of some older iPhone models by way of an iOS update, and then hid that fact from the public until a collection of benchmarks essentially outed the company. Striking while the iron is hot, several Android phone makers have come and said they have not (and will not) slow down older handsets. Samsung and LG, two of the biggest Android phone players on the playground, are the latest to issue statements on the matter. Both of them told Phone... Read more...
Samsung appears to be facing another round of battery woes, although this time around, phones are not overheating or catching fire, as was the case with the Galaxy Note 7. Instead, some Galaxy Note 8 owners are complaining about their phones abruptly shutting down and not being able to power them back on. Furthermore, there is no indication that the battery is attempting to recharge when plugging in the charging cable. "My wife's [Galaxy] Note 8 turned off today and won't turn back on. Tried the soft reset and Safe Mode button pushes and it won't turn on. When it's plugged in, the red light doesn't... Read more...
If you are a Samsung fan and are looking forward to more details on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus that are expected early next year, a new leak has given up some additional information on the devices. According to this leak, the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus smartphones will continue to have a 3.5mm headphone port integrated. The details were tipped in a leaked image seen here that claims to show a 3.5mm port on a module for the smartphones. The headphone port can be seen on the bottom right portion of the module. This is good news for audio fans with headphones they love who don’t want to have to use... Read more...
