It will probably still be several weeks until Samsung officially announces its Galaxy S10 series, which could consist of three separate handsets. Leaks and rumors have been commonplace leading up to the launch. However, a case maker may have provided the best reveal yet of what all three Galaxy S10 smartphones will look like. Olixar, a maker of "premium smartphone and tablet accessories from cases to pocket sized selfie poles" (according to the company's own description), has already made available a range of Galaxy S10 cases for pre-order. These consist of hard shell cases (ArmourDillo), flexible... Read more...
Samsung mobile chief DJ Koh has gone on record as saying that its mid-range smartphones would be receiving more innovative features as its flagship sales have been slipping. That is clearly on display with the upcoming Galaxy A8s, which has leaked to the internet courtesy of China's TENAA regulatory agency. Images filed with TENAA clearly show that the Galaxy A8x will be one of the first smartphones to feature Samsung's new Infinity-O display. While it's hard to see with the original images, there is a punch hole cutout in the top left corner of the display for the 24MP selfie camera.... Read more...
The Galaxy S10 leaks and rumors keep rolling in, and we imagine they will continue to do so until Samsung finally introduces its next flagship handset, likely on around Mobile World Congress in February. So, we're still several weeks away from knowing what exactly the Galaxy S10 will bring to the table. In the meantime, a fresh batch of leaked images has emerged. Image Source: Slash Gear We obviously can't say if the images are real or fake renders, though the designs are certainly plausible. The pictures highlight the rumored rear triple camera arrangement the Galaxy S10 is expected to wield.... Read more...
Samsung is prepping a software update for its Galaxy Note 9 and a few other high-end handsets, though what it has in the works is more than just a new build of Android. In addition to doling out Android 9 Pie, it's readying a final build of its recently announced One UI, which the company says "helps you focus on what really matters most." If you own a Galaxy Note 9, you can test out a beta version of One UI. "Made for all our users, the One UI Beta Program is the chance to try One UI before its official release. As one of the first to enjoy the new features and design, send us your feedback and... Read more...
We may have our first look at the actual Infinity O display that could be the standout feature of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10 smartphone. A leaked image purporting to be exactly that has surfaced on the web, though it's a blurry, low quality picture, as is often frustratingly the case with these types of things. The Infinity O display is rumored to introduced a new full-screen design with a punch-hole in the upper-left corner. This punch-hole is said to be a cutout for the front-facing selfie camera, and is key to enabling a notchless design and ditching a traditional bezel. A notch still isn't... Read more...
It looks as though Samsung's next flagship phone, the Galaxy S10, will feature a full-front display instead of a notched design or a chunky bezel. Samsung has not yet officially announced the Galaxy S10, of course, but a recently discovered patent filing may provide clues as to what direction the company is taking its Galaxy line. This is an interesting time for Samsung. The company recently teased a prototype of a folding smartphone with an Infinity Flex display that allows it to double as a tablet, somewhat putting an end to all the rumors and speculation to that point. In similar fashion, there... Read more...
Samsung on Wednesday rolled out a new flagship Exynos 9 series 9820 system-on-chip (SoC) for mobile devices. Likely destined for the Galaxy S10, the Exynos 9820 brings together eight processor cores bolstered by a neural processing unit (NPU), making it equipped for on-device artificial intelligence applications. Sporting an enhanced architecture design, the Exynos 9820 features a tri-cluster architecture consisting of two fourth generation custom CPU cores for "ultimate processing power," a pair of ARM Cortex-A75 cores for "optimal performance," and four Cortex-A55 cores for "greater efficiency."...

One thing is always certain in the smartphone space—something newer, faster, and presumably better is right around the corner at any given time. New models roll off the lot at the same clip as automobiles. For Samsung, that means an inevitable Galaxy S10 is in the cards, and if the latest bit of leaked information is accurate, it will bring some big design changes to the Galaxy line. The biggest one is a supposed "punch hole" element in the front display to house the front-facing selfie camera. Could this be the "Infinity-V" display that Samsung recently trademarked with the Korean Intellectual... Read more...
Samsung may be getting ready to announce its next-generation Exynos 9820 system-on-chip (SoC), if a recent Twitter post is any indication. The South Korean electronics maker posted a teaser image to its Samsung Exynos account, and it shows a mystery chip emerging from the side of an unidentified smartphone, perhaps the Galaxy S10. To be clear, Samsung has not yet announced a Galaxy S10 smartphone, nor has it said anything about a Exynos 9820 processor. However, there have been several rumors pointing to the latter, dating back to at least this past June when notorious leaker Ice Universe claimed... Read more...
Over the past few months we've heard some pretty interesting rumors about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10 flagship. One of the rumored features that is most likely to come to fruition is the inclusion of an in-display fingerprint sensor, replacing the rear-mounted sensor on current Galaxy smartphones. One other feature reportedly on tap for at least some variants of the Galaxy S10 is a completely notch-free display. This rumor has been fueled by patents that Samsung filed for sensors embedded within the display -- including selfie cameras -- and the company's recent move... Read more...
After a barrage of leaks and rumors followed by even more leaks and rumors, Samsung on Wednesday finally gave a glimpse of its fancy Galaxy smartphone with a folding display. It was our first authentic look at the upcoming handset. Samsung hid the design in a chunky case, but it did offer up some detailed specs. During the presentation, Samsung talked about having to "invent new materials" to make this phone a reality. It began with finding a malleable adhesive that would allow the company to laminate the display layers securely together while also allowing them to flex. The result is the Infinity... Read more...
Is it too early to speculate about the Galaxy S10, or even the Galaxy S11? Heck no! Display innovations loom right around the corner, and while Samsung is getting ready to announce a foldable smartphone—the Galaxy F or Galaxy X—it has other tricks up its sleeve. A recent patent application details some of what Samsung has in mind, and we hope they find their way into the next flagship Galaxy device. To be clear, the Galaxy F or Galaxy X (or whatever Samsung ends up calling it) is not a flagship phone. Instead, Samsung is toying around with a unique design and hoping that developers...

It's finally happening, today is the day when we'll get our first glimpse at what Samsung has been working on with respect to folding Android smartphones. Samsung has talked about the concept for years and in recent months confirmed that the official unveil would happen before the close of 2018. During today’s Samsung Developer Conference, we will "hear directly from Samsung leadership about the newest technology advances and partnerships for the now — plus, the company’s vision for the next." The event itself kicks off at 10:00AM PST, or 1:00PM EST. Samsung confirmed... Read more...
Samsung is planning to release a foldable smartphone at some point in the near future, though the company has not shared any detailed information just yet. That could very well change this week. The Samsung Developer Conference is scheduled to run from November 7-8 (Wednesday and Thursday) in San Francisco, and it's expected that Samsung will reveal to developers what it's been working on. A folding smartphone has been one of the most persistent rumors in recent weeks. Samsung has not been shy about its desire to wade into the bendable space, and various patent applications may provide clues as... Read more...
