The rumors have started in earnest about the next flagship smartphone from Samsung, which is expected to be called the Galaxy S9. Like Galaxy devices that came before it, the S9 is expected to come in a standard and plus sizes. A results page from Geekbench has surfaced that claims to show the results for the Galaxy S9 Plus version of the smartphone. The results page (seen below) calls out a score of 1191 for single-core and 3835 for multi-core. The model number is Samsung SM-G965F and the listing calls out a motherboard dubbed universal9810. That is presumed to be the new Exynos 9810 SoC... Read more...
When it comes to today's smartphones, it seems as though bigger is better in the eyes of consumers. The original iPhone shipped with a 3.5-inch display, but the current iPhone X ships with a 5.8-inch display. Likewise, Samsung is currently selling the Galaxy S8+ and Galaxy Note 8 which have 6.2- and 6.3-inch displays respectively. According to a new report out of South Korea, Samsung may be looking to go in the opposite direction with a Galaxy S9 Mini. This would be a premium device in the same mold as the expected Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+, but with a 4-inch-class display. The Galaxy S9 Mini would... Read more...
Samsung has quietly announced a new flagship mobile system-on-chip, the Exynos 9810. The South Korean electronics giant brought up the new chip almost as an aside, wedging it into a long press release that is primarily focused on bragging about racking up a few dozen CES 2018 Innovation Awards, including awards for Fitness, Sports, and Biotech for the Gear Sport, Gear Fit2 Pro, and Gear IconX.It is the first time that Samsung has won Innovation Awards in those particular categories, and while that is neat and all, we are more interested in the Exynos 9810 system-on-chip (SoC), which will undoubtedly...

The smartphone world seemed poised to make a move away from fingerprint scanners that have their own space on the front of the smartphone (or on the back) to scanners that could be hidden away under the glass of the screen. Apple was one of the first to look at this back in October of 2016 when a patent showing plans for an under glass fingerprint scanner first surfaced. The catch was that Apple ultimately decided to leapfrog fingerprint recognition in favor of facial recognition. Word is that Samsung has ditched its plans to put the fingerprint scanner under the screen glass in the upcoming Galaxy... Read more...
Many of the juiciest deals on Black Friday are often deeply discounted technology products, making Best Buy a seemingly obviously destination for anyone trying to score a deal. But will the electronics chain live up to expectations? It very well may—Best Buy's Black Friday advertisement lists some enticing deals, including $300 off any of Samsung's flagship Galaxy phones, those being the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note 8. The discount requires "qualified activation" with a wireless carrier. Best Buy specifically lists Verizon and Sprint on its advertisement, so it looks like AT&T... Read more...
Apple and Samsung have been battling in court for years now over patents having to with slide-to-unlock and quick links. That quick links patent is the one that turns things like phone numbers into tappable links, so that you can quickly dial them. Apple was originally granted a $120 million award by a jury who found that Samsung did indeed infringe on its patents. Then on appeal, a judge threw out the ruling calling two of the patents granted to Apple invalid, and stating Samsung didn’t infringe on a third. That appeals court did all that while upholding the judgment against Apple for violating... Read more...
We are getting to the part of the year where it is increasingly difficult to stay attached to your money. Tantalizing savings on electronics (and all kinds of other items) are a staple of Black Friday, and before you have a chance to come up for air, Cyber Monday hits. Several retailers have already released Black Friday ads, including Target, Walmart, and Kohl's, to name a few. But it is not just retailers getting in on the shopping frenzy, so are manufacturers. Dell recently tipped its deals, and now Samsung is following suit. Samsung is doing things a bit differently than everyone else. Rather... Read more...
It has been a tradition over the years for Apple fans to stand in long lines for the privilege of buying a newly released iPhone model on launch day. For rival Samsung, it has its own iPhone tradition—poking fun at Apple, while pointing out the strengths of its latest Galaxy handsets, strengths that oftentimes elude the newest iPhone. Like a 3.5mm audio jack. Well, Samsung is at it again with a new ad campaign that mocks the new iPhone X, and several iPhone models that came before it. Samsung's ad starts off with a camera capturing tired customers standing in a line outside of an Apple store for... Read more...
Two of the best Android smartphones on the market will be betting an update to Android 8.0 Oreo in the not-too-distant future. We are talking about Samsung's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, both of which are still saddled with Nougat, though not for long. For those who want to get an early look at Oreo, Samsung today announced it is part of the Samsung Experience 9.0 beta that is rolling out. The new beta is being made available to select customers participating in Samsung's Galaxy beta program.

Samsung does not seem to be as concerned as Nokia about the slow pace at which VR is entering the mainstream. As such, Samsung unveiled a new 360 Round camera for recording immersive 3D experiences. The announcement comes less than two weeks after Nokia canned its premium (and ultra pricey) Ozo VR camera amid a series of layoffs as it looks to pivot into the digital health sector. Like the Ozo, the 360 Round is equipped with multiple camera sensors and has a distinct look, though the two do not resemble each other. The Ozo looked like a modern version of Q-bert, for those of you old enough to get... Read more...
Samsung today announced that it is ready to start producing semiconductors based on its 8-nanometer FinFET Low Power Plus (LPP) manufacturing process. The company's newest process node provides up to 10 percent lower power consumption compared to its 10nm LPP process, and also takes up 10 percent less space due to a narrower metal pitch, Samsung stated in a press release. "With the qualification completed three months ahead of schedule, we have commenced 8LPP production," said Ryan Lee, Vice President of Foundry Marketing at Samsung Electronics. "Samsung Foundry continues to expand its process... Read more...
Weird things can happen on Friday the 13th. Case in point, Samsung today announced its earnings guidance for the third quarter of 2017, saying it expects to a record operating profit of 14.5 trillion won (~$12.9 billion), compared with 5.2 trillion won (~$4.6 billion) during the same quarter a year ago. That is cause for celebration, though in a separate announcement, Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Kwon Oh-hyun said it he plans to resign next year due an "unprecedented crisis" at Samsung. Image Source: Samsung That is a lot to digest. Starting with Kwon Oh-hyun's crisis comment, he did... Read more...
There is some speculation that OnePlus will release a new handset in the next couple of months, potentially a OnePlus 5T or even a OnePlus 6. Fueling that speculation is a purportedly leaked press rendering of a the former, which is making the rounds on the web. The render shows a handset with an all-screen front side, rounded corners, and barely any bezel to speak of.The render was uploaded to /Leaks by user Phoneleaks, who has a reported accuracy rating of 66 percent. In this instance, we are skeptical of its legitimacy, as are a few of the people who commented on the post.Image Source: SlashLeaks"Obvious... Read more...
