Samsung is laying claim to having the highest capacity NVMe solid state drive on the market, an 8-terabyte model based on the ultra-thin Next-Generation Small Form Factor (NGSFF). As is often the case when it comes to technological firsts in storage, the new 8TB NVMe NF1 SSD is not a consumer drive, so don't expect to pick this thing up for your gaming PC, as cool as that might be. Instead, it's optimized for heavy data analytics and virtualization applications in next-gen data centers and enterprise environments. The new drive features 16 of Samsung's 512-gigabyte (GB) NAND flash memory packages.... Read more...
There's no question that Samsung's Galaxy series are among the most popular Android smartphones on the planet. The newest entries into the family -- the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ -- launched earlier the year and were most recently embiggened with larger storage capacities. Now, Samsung is adding a new color to the mix for those that haven't yet upgraded their smartphone: Sunrise Gold. Sunrise Gold joins the existing range of colors that include Lilac Purple, Coral Blue and Midnight Black. The gold-tinged Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will still have an all-black front like the other colors offered. ... Read more...
Apple helped to introduce the smartphone world to more expensive, premium handsets in part, thanks to the launch of the $1,000 iPhone X. Other manufacturers followed right along with Apple and launched their own $1,000 plus flagship devices. Now, rumors are pointing to pricing taking an even higher jump in the high-end smartphone market, once folding devices launch. Samsung is working on a folding smartphone dubbed the Galaxy X, a support page of the device leaked late last year confirming the next Galaxy, a patent app has been seen, and many expected the Galaxy X to surface at CES 2018, but no...

Samsung has pulled the wraps off its second-generation Chromebook Plus, now called the Chromebook Plus V2. The South Korean company bills the Chromebook Plus V2 as a premium device at a “competitive price point”. While some may only think of low-cost entries when they hear the word Chromebook, devices like Google's own Pixelbook show that there is a market for premium devices running Chrome OS. The Chromebook Plus V2, like its predecessor, is a 2-in-1 convertible that can be used in a traditional laptop configuration or you can flip the display 360 degrees to use it as... Read more...
Samsung is set to unveil the next entry in its long-running Galaxy Note family in early August. We have a good general idea of what kind of hardware will be included on the flagship smartphone, but a fresh leak claims that at least one spec will far surpass its predecessor. Gadget leaker Ice Universe reports that the Galaxy Note 9 will come packing a massive 4,000 mAh battery inside its spacious chassis. For comparison, the current-generation Galaxy Note 8 "only” has a 3,300 mAh battery. This should result in a pretty significant uptick in battery life given the power efficiency... Read more...
Among the many market segments that Samsung competes in, the company builds its own custom processors based on ARM's architectural designs. You know these as "Exynos" chips and they are often found in the international versions of Samsung's flagship smartphones. Samsung's next top-tier chipset, the Exynos 9820, will take performance to a new level and is said to be faster than ARM's recently introduced Cortex-A76. That's a pretty big deal, considering the Cortex-A76 is the latest and greatest from ARM. As we discussed in a previous article, the Cortex-A76 represents ARM's most radical overhaul... Read more...
We now have a pretty good idea of what the final design of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note 9 will look like when it is officially unveiled. Steve Hemmerstoffer, a notorious leaker that some people know better as @OnLeaks, his Twitter handle, posted an official looking render of the upcoming phablet that is based upon Samsung's factory CAD files for the device. Assuming the CAD file are legitimate, the renders depict what it will actually look like. Steve has a very favorable history when it comes to leaked information—he and Evan Blass (@evleaks) seem to be plugged into the pre-release scene... Read more...
Facebook users who are concerned about their privacy may need to worry about more than the apps that they or their friends download. The social media giant purportedly gave over sixty smartphone developers access to Facebook users’ information. Corporations such as Apple, Samsung, Amazon, BlackBerry, and Microsoft have reportedly not only been able to comb through their own customers’ data over the last decade, but the personal information of their customers’ Facebook friends. According to a report by The New York Times, Facebook made agreements with over sixty device makers to... Read more...
If you are a fan of Samsung's Galaxy Note series, you are in for a treat this summer. The next model in the Galaxy Note line, the Galaxy Note 9, is reportedly set to debut in early August at Samsung's Unpacked event in New York, and will include several upgrades over its predecessor. It will of course wield a faster processor, but also a better Bixby experience and improved camera performance. To start with, it's rumored the Galaxy Note 9 will have an even bigger display, this time checking in at 6.38 inches versus a slightly smaller 6.32-inch display on the Galaxy Note 8. There's also been talk... Read more...
The latest in the ongoing legal saga between Apple and Samsung is that the latter owes the former $539 million for infringing on smartphone patents, a US jury has found after deliberating for more than a week. Samsung already paid Apple $399 million to cover infringement claims on some of the patents that have been in dispute, so should the verdict survive an inevitable appeal, the South Korean electronics maker would effectively have pay nearly $140 million more to Apple. "We believe deeply in the value of design, and our teams work tirelessly to create innovative products that delight our customers,"... Read more...
How much should a company be penalized for possible patent infringement? The United States District Court in San Jose, California will soon determine whether Samsung owes Apple $1.07 billion or $28 million USD. Apple claims that Samsung infringed on three of their design and two of their utility patents. These patents include the iPhone’s black screen with rounded edges and a bezel, the rows of colorful icons commonly found on an iPhone screen, the “bounce-back” function, and the “tap-to-zoom” function. Samsung purportedly developed sixteen different models that included... Read more...
Apple has been involved in a few controversies over the past six months, most recently with butterfly keyboard failures on the MacBook Pro. However, prior to that, the company came under fire for the peculiar display notch on the iPhone X and performance throttling due to “well-seasoned” batteries on older iPhones. Samsung has of course been taking notice of what’s going on in the world of iPhones and has followed up with a new commercial that trolls Apple. The commercial follows the travails of a woman as she navigates through a busy airport, only to be literally slowed... Read more...
Digital assistants have become a standard feature of practically every smartphone around these days, and are such a big deal that Samsung created its own version in Bixby. Looking ahead, Samsung is planning to roll out an upgraded version of its artificial intelligence platform, Bixby 2.0, and it will reportedly arrive alongside the Galaxy Note 9 sometime in the second half of this year (presumably in the fall). Samsung talked about Bixby 2.0 during a recent press conference that was focused on its vision for AI. The plan for Bixby 2.0 is to inject more natural language processes, along with improved...

Samsung turned a few heads last year when it released the super-wide CHG90, a massively long 49-inch curved gaming monitor with a 3840x1080 resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time, and FreeSync 2 support. It was a unique entry at the time, though it may also have served as a proof-of-concept (or proof-of-market) for others display makes. How so? word on the web is that Samsung is going to produce 49-inch gaming panels for others this fall. News of Samsung's plans comes from TFTCentral, which says that Samsung is keenly focused in the ultra-wide format and intends to manufacturer several... Read more...
