Black Friday isn't even here yet, but we've already seen some pretty good deals on various electronic devices including smartphone (like yesterday's OnePlus deals). However, today we have a stellar deal on one of Samsung's popular new releases: the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE). The smartphone has an MSRP of $699, and has gone on sale for as little as $599 during the past month. However, today's deal sees the smartphone discounted by $150 from its regular price. That takes the smartphone down to a low $549. That pricing [via Amazon] extends to all available colors including Cloud Green, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Navy, Cloud Orange, Cloud Red, and Cloud White. Even better is the fact... Read more...
Everything is going 'smart' these days—watches, glasses, speakers, refrigerators, security cameras, and the list goes on. Now you can add PC monitors to the mix. Tapping one of the few untouched categories left, Samsung has introduced two smart monitors, the 32-inch M7 and 27-inch M5, which it is billing as the world's first do-it-all screens. What does that mean? Well, you can perform a wide variety of tasks on these displays. First and foremost, these are PC monitors with a 32-inch VA screen and 4K resolution (3840x2160) for the M7 model, and a 27-inch panel with a 1920x1080 resolution for the M5. Other core specifications include a 60Hz refresh rate, 8ms gray-to-gray (GtG) response time,... Read more...
The smartphone upgrade cycle never ends for any manufacturer, and Samsung is no exception to that rule. The world's biggest smartphone maker seems to be pushing up its release cadence in an effort to combat slumping sales and an onslaught of new phones from Apple. We've already heard that the Galaxy S21 series might break cover officially earlier than its usual springtime release schedule would indicate. Now we're learning more about the specs of each device in the lineup, and getting confirmation from multiple sources. Thanks to previous leaks from Twitter leaker @OnLeaks, we know that the Galaxy S21 family will come with Qualcomm's heretofore unannounced Snapdragon 875 SoC. Now the folks... Read more...
Since August, we have heard rumors about the next Galaxy devices from Samsung. The Galaxy S21 Ultra has had its alleged specs leaked, and S-Pen support rumors have been floating around as well. Now, well-known gadget leaker Ice Universe is on Twitter claiming, with 100% confidence, that the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra indeed supports the S Pen.  The S-Pen rumors date back to mid-summer when it was thought that the Galaxy S21 Ultra would gain the feature typically reserved for the Galaxy Note series. But if the mainline Galaxy S21 family is going to add support for the S-Pen, what would that mean for the Galaxy Note, which has traditionally been positioned just a little bit above the...

Samsung on Thursday officially the lifted the curtain to unveil a new mid-range mobile processor, the Exynos 1080. Billed as a "5G processor that will make your phone fly," the new chip combines 5G and artificial intelligence capabilities into a slice of silicon built on Samsung's 5-nanometer extreme ultraviolet (EUV) manufacturing process. As the model name implies, the Exynos 1080 supplants the Exynos 980 (as found in the Galaxy A Quantum) in the mid-range category. But unlike the previous generation chip, which sports a 2+6 configuration (2x Cortex-A77 at 2.2GHz and 6x Cortex-A55 at 1.8GHz), the Exynos 1080 adopts a 1+3+4 CPU arrangement. Specifically, it wields a Cortex-A78 core clocked 2.8GHz,... Read more...
Samsung's Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE) has been a popular smartphone choice for those looking for flagship-caliber specs for not a lot money. Samsung announced the smartphone at $699, but quickly dropped the price to $599 for preorders. Pricing has fluctuated between $599 and $699 since then. The Galaxy S20 FE launched with 128GB of internal storage, which isn't quite enough for some users (despite the fact that there is a microSD slot for expansion). But for those that crave even more internal storage, Samsung is now offering a 256GB SKU, which will be priced at $769.99.  From what we can tell, the doubling of internal storage is the only change to report of, and all...

Samsung and Apple are two of the largest smartphone manufacturers in the world, and it makes sense that they go back and forth in a competitive business tango. Recently, rumors circulated that the Samsung Galaxy S21 has been tapped for launch in January of next year. This early launch may have been selected so Samsung could attempted to steal some thunder from Apple’s late-arriving iPhone 12 series. Samsung could also have something else in store, though, with a rumored Samsung Galaxy Note20 Fan Edition, which could also launch next year. In September, the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE launched at $699. The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE was a trimmed down S20 which kept premium flagship features, making... Read more...
If you're in the market for a cost-effective SSD, we've got a couple of options for you today from the Samsung camp covering both internal and external storage solutions. In the case of the internal drives, you'll find discounts of up to 40 percent.  The first deal is for Samsung's 860 EVO SATA SSDs, which are still popular solutions for those that have older desktops and laptops. The 500GB version of the SSD is available for $54, which represents a 20 percent discount off its normal price. If you double your storage to 1TB, you're looking at $120, which is a 40 percent discount ($80 off) from its regular selling price. Samsung 860 EVO 500GB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E500B/AM)... Read more...
The Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G is not very old, but be that as it may, there have been several leaks of Samsung's next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S21 Ultra. What look to be official press renders have surfaced in recent weeks, and as for the actual hardware makeup of the upcoming handset, a new leak purportedly outlines some of the key specifications. We have been hearing about the Galaxy S21 since at least August. If we go back to the summertime, a report surfaced suggesting it would debut with S-Pen support, which would mark the first time for a Galaxy S series smartphone. It also thrust into question the future of the Galaxy Note series, if the Galaxy S21 is offered with a big display and S-Pen... Read more...
Since August, there have been rumblings of the next Samsung Galaxy device in the works. Previously, we heard of the S-Pen making its way to the next high-end Galaxy "S" phones, and then Samsung began mass production of 16Gb LPDDR5 memory for the new phones. Now, Steve Hemmerstoffer, also known as @OnLeaks on Twitter, has shown off what appears to be Galaxy S21 renders. Looking at the device, the change that stands out the most, as Hemmerstoffer points out, is the “unique rear camera housing design.” Rather than having the camera bump inset from the frame, it wraps around the device and melds into it along the side for a smoother finish. Furthermore, rather than the square-ish camera... Read more...
Samsung has just unleashed a new family of Secure Digital (SD) cards aimed squarely at photography professionals, general consumers and the scores of content creators out there entertaining the masses. The new SD cards are available in two product families: PRO Plus and EVO Plus. Both product families use the SDHC/SDXC form-factor with a UHS-1 interface. In the case of the PRO Plus, Samsung is promising sequential read speeds of up to 100MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 90MB/sec. The entry-level 32GB version of the PRO Plus, however, is limited to 60MB/sec sequential writes. As for the EVO Plus, Samsung rates all members of this family at up to 100MB/sec for both sequential reads and... Read more...
Samsung has taken the wraps off what it is calling “the most affordable 5G smartphone to date.” The Galaxy A42 5G will pack some of the Samsung features consumers know and love alongside the 5G connectivity. It will launch in the United Kingdom, starting at £349 RRP or around $455. As Samsung puts it, the Galaxy A42 5G strengthens the A-Series lineup. James Kitto, VP of Sales for Samsung U.K. and Ireland, says that, “We’re excited to bring to market our latest 5G smartphone within the A-Series lineup,” and that “it is part of our ongoing commitment to deliver next-generation connectivity to more people.” This budget beast of a phone will come with...

We have all heard the tantalizing promises of 5G connectivity—faster speeds, lower latency, and a new era of experiences made possible by its benefits over 4G and earlier standards, if you have a 5G phone or other device. The problem is that those benefits do not necessarily reach their full potential indoors. That is where Samsung's new Link Cell technology comes into play. When it comes to 5G connectivity, millimeter Wave (or mmWave) is where it is at, for the fastest performance. It is the high band solution with the best speeds, but it has some downsides. It does not extend as far out from cell towers as mid-band and low-band 5G solutions, and can have issues penetrating buildings and... Read more...
Yesterday, Samsung officially announced the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE), which offers compelling specs at an attractive $699 price point. However, just a day after the phone was announced, retailers are already piling on the discounts, which makes an already attractive phone even tastier for those wanting flagship Android performance. Both Amazon and Best Buy currently have the Galaxy S20 FE available for preorder, unlocked, for just $599. That represents a $100 discount off yesterday’s announced MSRP. So you’re getting a flagship-worthy smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC with 5G for not much more than a nice mid-range Android smartphone. For instance, the mid-range Google...

After months of leaks, the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE) is now official. Samsung announced the smartphone this morning, and it brings over many of the flagship features that originally debuted in the mainline Galaxy S20 family to a lower price point. At the heart of the Galaxy S20 FE is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, and not the newer Snapdragon 865+ for obvious reasons (namely cost). You’ll get a respectable 6GB of RAM onboard along with 128GB of internal storage and expandable storage via a microSD slot. When it comes to the display, Samsung is giving customers a 6.5-inch FHD panel with a 120Hz refresh rate, which is great considering the price. That’s something that the company... Read more...
Samsung has not yet announced its Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE) handset, but it has already been spied in a new leak, which gives a high level overview of the phone. Two leaks, actually—one of them is a hands-on video showcasing the upcoming phone, and the other is purportedly an unreleased promotional video (or a pretty good fake). As far as we know, this is the first look at the actual phone. Before now, we have seen some renders of the Galaxy S20 FE, which leaked to the web in August. Here is a look at the hands-on video (it's a little over 6 minutes long)... The leaker who posted the above video, Jimmy is Promo, has also gotten his mitts on previous Samsung phones before they launched.... Read more...
When it comes to mobile SoCs for Android smartphones, there's Qualcomm, and then there's everybody else. Sure, there have been some challenges from the like of HiSilicon, MediaTek and Samsung, but Qualcomm has for the most part held the performance/features edge with its broad Snapdragon portfolio. Samsung, however, is looking to change that with its next-generation Exynos SoCs, especially when it comes to its flagship offerings. The South Korean electronics giant is reportedly working on a high-end chip codenamed Olympus according to the Yonhap News Agency, which would offer a significant boost in performance compared to existing Exynos chips. More importantly, it is expected... Read more...
Huawei holds the second largest share of the global smartphone market, according to the most recent data culled by IDC, but the Chinese handset maker finds itself in yet another tough spot. Barring an extension at the final hour, it is very likely both Samsung and LG will stop supplying smartphone displays to Huawei next week. Samsung and LG are pretty much the go-to companies for premium panels in the mobile space—we have been particularly enamored with the overall display quality of Samsung's higher end Galaxy phones that rock OLED screens. But if Huawei has to look elsewhere for smartphone panels, it could face multiple challenges. Why is this happening? It relates to ongoing tensions... Read more...
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra have barely been on the market for a month, and they're already being deeply discounted. We can't say that it's due to poor sales in particular this early in the game, but these discounts tend to be the case for most Samsung smartphones shortly after launch since the same happened with the Galaxy S20 family. In this case, Amazon is knocking $200 off the price of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which means that they now start at $799 and $1,099 respectively. Both smartphones are packing flagship-caliber features to justify their high price tags, but we can’t help but feel that this lower price point is more in... Read more...
Well, that was fast. Samsung only launched its latest generation Galaxy Watch 3 barely a month ago, and already it can be had for a deep discount. It is on sale for $365.30 on Amazon, which is 15 percent (or $64.69) below its regular $429.99 selling price. Typically it takes a longer time to see these kinds of markdowns on new products. There is a lot to like about the Galaxy Watch 3. It is the latest in Samsung's line of premium smartwatches, running on Tizen. This latest iteration boasts a slimmer rotating bezel (used for navigation), and is made with premium materials, like a stainless steel case. The version that is on sale is the 45mm model (Wi-Fi) in the 'Mystic Black' color option. Samsung... Read more...
Bop it, twist it, fold it? Among the trends of folding phones, Samsung could be entering the folding phone foray once more. New rumors are floating about that Samsung has a “3rd foldable family member” in the chamber next year as the Z Fold S with a flexible OLED screen and a 360-degree hinge. Back in August, we reported on a possible budget line of folding phones from Samsung, but now it seems some new rumors are afoot. Twitter user @folduniverse dug into the rumors of this new folding phone from Samsung in his tweet below. Samsung rumored to have a 3rd foldable family member next year, tentatively known as Z Fold S.It has got 360° hinge that enables outfold and infold and works... Read more...
Back in early August at Galaxy Unpacked, Samsung unveiled two fresh new Android tablets: the Galaxy Tab S7 and the Galaxy Tab S7+. We’ve managed to get our hands on the latter of those two, which is a fantastic piece of hardware, and probably the best Android tablet has come across our workbench over the years. As you can see in our hands-on video below, the Galaxy Tab S7 is a premium device and is dominated by a large, gorgeous 12.4-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2800x1752 (WQXGA+) and a fast 120Hz refresh rate. Powering the tablet is Qualcomm’s latest flagship SoC: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+. The inclusion of the Snapdragon 865+ also means that that Galaxy... Read more...
