Next week will bring CES 2021, but companies are incredibly eager to show off their gadgets and gizmos early. Samsung is one of these companies which is showing off some new displays this year. They have a few new models and features to go along with the displays, which we will look at below. Samsung Neo QLED If you wanted a new technology that sounds like something between the Matrix and science fiction, this is it. Samsung is introducing a new technology called Neo QLED to its flagship 8K and 4K QN9 models. This technology bumps up the quality of QLED by using Quantum Mini LED technology “precisely controlled by Quantum Matrix Technology and [a] Neo Quantum Processor.” Basically,... Read more...
Flagship smartphone prices have been creeping higher and higher each year, with devices like the Galaxy S20 and iPhone 12 Pro carrying MSRPs of $999. While many people reason the cost away by paying for the device in relatively low monthly installments, we can't escape that fact that $1,000 is a lot of money to spend for a hunk of metal and glass. Perhaps Samsung has heard these cries, as it is reportedly looking to lower prices on at least two of its incoming Galaxy S21 family of smartphones. This information comes to us from Belgian wireless carrier Voo, which has prematurely listed alleged pricing for the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra. Voo lists the smartphones prices at... Read more...
Samsung is set to unveil its new Galaxy S21 family on January 14th, and the company has already started taking reservations for preorders. As is usually the case with its new Galaxy S releases, Samsung will be throwing in some freebies for those early adopters that choose to preorder its latest flagships. According to tipster TheGalox, Samsung will be including a couple of sweet accessories with the preorder purchase of either smartphone. Allegedly, anyone that decides to preorder a Galaxy S21 or Galaxy S21+ will get a set of Galaxy Buds Live wireless earbuds and a Galaxy SmartTag. The Galaxy Buds Live were released earlier this year and have been nicknamed "beans" due to their shape. The... Read more...
A staple of a premium laptop is an OLED display. Not all premium laptops leverage OLED, but the ones that do tend to stand out from the crowd, like Dell's XPS 13 we reviewed last year. Expect to see more laptops sporting OLED screens in 2021. Helping to make it happen, Samsung is planning to unveil more than half a dozen new OLED displays for laptops at CES 2021. From Samsung's vantage point, there is an expanded opportunity to shovel OLED displays into the laptop marketplace, due to rallying demand for laptops as more people find themselves working from home, engaging in online education, and of course gaming. "Just as Samsung’s OLED displays have outstripped LCDs in design elegance and... Read more...
Samsung's Galaxy S21 family has been making the rounds quite a bit during the past few weeks. We've seen all three smartphone members -- Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra -- from all angles in official leaked renders. What we haven't seen, until now, have been the alleged S Pen for the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the official case that will accommodate it and the smartphone. Luckily, the folks over at WinFuture, who always seem to get their sneaky hands on press renders ahead of time, have posted images of both the Galaxy S21 Ultra's S Pen and an official Samsung folio case. Looking at the S Pen, it is similar to styluses that have been included for years on the Galaxy Note family.... Read more...
It appears the launch of Samsung's Galaxy S family of smartphones gets earlier and earlier each year. This year is no exception, as Samsung this evening confirmed that the Galaxy Unpacked 2021 announcement will take place on January 14th at 10am EST. For those keeping score, the Galaxy 20 family was announced on March 11th, 2020, which means that the Galaxy S21 is being unleashed nearly a month sooner. "Over the past year, mobile technology has taken center stage in everyday life as people are working remotely and spending more time at home," said Samsung upon announcing the Galaxy Unpacked 2021 event. "The accelerated transition to a mobile-first world brings with it the need... Read more...
Solid state drives are the best way to breathe new life into an older PC or add extra storage to a new build to store games and data that needs to be read frequently. NVMe drives typically top out at 2 TB and most motherboards only have one or two slots. When absolute throughput may not be as important as quick random reads, the SATA III 6 Gbps interface isn't a problem. That's why Samsung, among many, keeps churning out new SSD families in the ubiquitous format, like the excellent 870 QVO. The next models may be right around the corner, as some shops listed the drives a tad early.  The difference between Samsung's different SSD families has been the type of multi-layered VNAND onboard,...

Do you find yourself losing your keys, phone, watch, or any other small object that just seems to grow legs and disappear? There are a number of products out there that help you keep track of these items, well, by tracking them. Tile has been the leading brand in item trackers, but Samsung may be entering the ring again soon. A Samsung-made tracker, dubbed the Galaxy SmartTag, may be queued up for launch sometime in January. Today, 91mobiles spotted this alleged tracking device from Samsung on the NCC certification site. The images found show a rounded square-shaped device that appears to be about 40mm^2 or 1.5” by 1.5”. This ends up being a touch smaller than Tile’s premium... Read more...
Yesterday, Samsung dropped its first teaser for the upcoming Galaxy S21 family of smartphones, which are rumored to be announced on January 14th. The Snapdragon 888-powered flagships are likely to be among the best-selling Android flagships of 2021, but new reports suggest that customers will be missing a few features with this generation. First off is what's reportedly missing in the box. Earlier this fall when Apple announced its iPhone 12 family, it removed both the headphones and wall charger from the box. That left customers with just a USB-C to Lightning cable. At the time, Samsung mocked Apple's omission and pointed to the fact that it includes a charger in the box with its smartphones....

Samsung won't be the first manufacturer to field a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G Mobile Platform smartphone, but it will likely be the most high-profile. The launch of the Galaxy S21 family is reportedly two weeks away, and Samsung is whetting the appetites of its customers with a teaser for the smartphones. The teaser, entitled "A new Galaxy awaits", starts off by showing the design of the original Galaxy S, which was launched in June 2010. While Samsung had previously released Android smartphones up to that point, the Galaxy S brand is what helped to cement the company as a leader in design and innovation. The video then cycles through the Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III and the... Read more...
It can be frustrating to purchase a smartphone, only to have the manufacturer drag its feet with updates a year or so later. Be that as it may, this is something that happens way more often than it should. We have good news for Galaxy Note 10 owners, though—Samsung has begun pushing out its Android 11-based One UI 3.0 update to Galaxy Note 10 phones, which brings with it some neat Android 11 features. The Galaxy Note 10 launched a little over a year ago, in August 2019. We posted our own Galaxy Note 10 Plus review that same month. Now just over a year later, it is still a great smartphone with a big and beautiful 6.8-inch display and solid all-around performance (including the cameras),... Read more...
Hey, have you heard—Samsung is launching a new flagship phone series, the Galaxy S21, in the very near future. Of course you have heard, because there has been a deluge of leaks and rumors related to the upcoming phone lineup, including official looking press renders. As we get closer to the actual launch, Samsung has begun accepting preorder registrations in the U.S. What exactly is a preorder registration? It is a way of being alerted when preorders go live next month, by providing your contact details to Samsung. As an added bonus, anyone who opts to "reserve now," as Samsung words it, will get a $60 instant credit they can apply to accessories and other items for the Galaxy S21. That... Read more...
Samsung is close to releasing its Galaxy S21 series, and with it will come two system-on-chip (SoC) designs, depending on the territory. In certain markets like the US, the Galaxy S21 will arrive with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 processor sitting pretty inside, while in many other locations, Samsung injects its own Exynos hardware inside its flagship phones. In those locations, the Galaxy S21 will wield Samsung's Exynos 2100 SoC, and some leaked benchmarks give us an idea of what kind of performance it will deliver. In most instances, the Snapdragon variant of Samsung's flagship phones end up outperforming the Exynos counterparts. Will that trend continue when the Galaxy S21 arrives? Well, Qualcomm...

The million dollar question in the mobile space is whether or not Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S21 handset will offer S-Pen support, like the Galaxy Note series. And there is a bonus question—will Samsung continue to crank out new generation Galaxy Note models, or is the Galaxy Note line expendable if S-Pen support arrives on the Galaxy S series? Thanks to a filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), we can answer one of those questions (feel free to send us a million bucks). Here it is—Samsung is definitely bringing S-Pen support to its next-generation Galaxy S21 family. Okay, almost definitely. Alright, alright, let's just say it is way more likely than not, based on...

Samsung is bad at keeping secrets when it comes to its unreleased products. In the case of the upcoming Galaxy S21 family, we've pretty much already seen or read every detail about the smartphones before their rumored mid-January launch. Today, we're learning more about the Galaxy Buds Pro wireless earbuds that will be launching alongside the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra. This time around, the new Galaxy Buds Pro details come courtesy of the Galaxy Wearable app, which made an early appearance in the official Galaxy Store. The app includes renders of the Galaxy Buds Pro, confirming the previous color options that we’ve reported on: black, violet, and silver.  The... Read more...
Android fans are awaiting the arrival of Samsung's new flagship smartphone series, the Galaxy S21 series, and there is still no definitive release date set—rumor has it the Galaxy S21 family could be unveiled in January 2021, perhaps around the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) time frame. As we wait, a whole bunch of official looking press renders have leaked to the web. First let's talk about what is on tap from Samsung. If past leaks and rumors pan out, Samsung will launch three models, including the regular Galaxy S21 with a 6.2-inch display, a larger Galaxy S21 Plus with a 6.7-inch screen, and of course the big daddy of the bunch, the Galaxy S21 Ultra with a 6.8-inch screen, all three...

Samsung's Galaxy S21 family of smartphones is reportedly launching around this time next month, which means that there will be a new line of accessories tagging along. One device that is a near-guarantee to arrive alongside the Galaxy S21 is the successor to the Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Buds+, which are reportedly called the Galaxy Buds Plus. The Galaxy Buds Pro are allegedly set to receive active noise cancellation technology to make them a prime competitor for the hugely popular Apple AirPods Pro. The Galaxy Buds Pro have already made an appearance at the FCC, confirming that their launch is right around the corner. The FCC documentation confirmed the Galaxy Buds Pro charging case will...

For the past few months, we’ve all been writing obituaries for Galaxy Note family, which has been a towering presence in Samsung’s smartphone family for nearly a decade. It’s hard to fathom it now, but when the original Galaxy Note launched in 2011 with a 5.3-inch display, it was considered massive. But today, the current-generation Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is rocking a 6.9-inch display. Yesterday, Samsung didn’t do much to dispel those rumors, with Dr. TM Roh, Samsung’s mobile chief, stating in a blog post, “We’ve also been paying attention to people’s favorite aspects of the Galaxy Note experience and are excited to add some of its...

As we wind down what little is left of 2020, Samsung's head of mobile, Dr. TM Roh, penned a blog post waxing poetic on the company's product portfolio and technological developments, like having "led the charge with 5G and changed the shape of the future with a series of foldable smartphones." He also discussed what is store for 2021, promising it will be an "epic new year" with more innovation. So, what can we expect? Let's start with the easy stuff. Dr. Roh said in no uncertain terms that foldable phones are here to stay. Or more precisely, he said Samsung will be expanding its portfolio of foldables, in an effort to make the category more accessible to everyone. This suggests to me that cheaper... Read more...
As technology matures, prices tend to decrease over time, leading to further growth. In 2020, Samsung dipped its toes once more into the folding phone market with high prices, but excellent specs and features on the Galaxy Z Fold 2. The price did limit the growth of the market, however, but if Samsung could bring prices down, perhaps we could see more foldables in the future? That is what analysts at Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) seem to think, and it would line up with past information. While foldables seem more like a novelty to most, it could be the future "standard" design of cell phones or mobile devices. This would especially be true if Samsung continues developing and pushing... Read more...
At CES 2019, Samsung unveiled a more consumer-friendly “Wall TV," which could have made its way to homes. It still packed the amazing MicroLED technology, came in a smaller form factor and remained modular. However, modularity could cause some issues for buying and setting up a screen such as a TV. Now, Samsung is tackling that issue with the unveiling of a 110” MicroLED prefabricated display for “stunning video, audio, and smart capabilities out of the box.” Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, reports that “consumers rely on their televisions for more functions than ever.” For leisure, work, or play, you may find yourself...

There have been a bunch of Galaxy S21 teasers over the past several weeks and months, from renders highlighting the design to hands-on impressions that purport to detail some of the hardware and features of Samsung's upcoming flagship. The leaks and rumors are almost over, though, because the Galaxy S21 is launching next month. When it arrives, the US variant is likely to wield a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor, as has been previously leaked. This is Qualcomm's latest flagship mobile processor that was recently shown off at an event. According to Qualcomm, the Kryo 680 CPU inside the Snapdragon 888 will deliver up to a 25 percent performance boost versus the Kryo 585 found in the Snapdragon... Read more...
