We've seen lots of rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S10, which will be among the first smartphone to launch with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor (at least in the United States). Rumors have hinted that there would be multiple S10 versions with an entry-level S10 packing 4GB of RAM, an S10 Plus with 6GB of RAM, S10 X with 6GB of RAM, and a version of the S10 with 12GB of RAM and 5G connectivity. A new rumor is now making the rounds, and this one is a bit scary. According to this new rumor, the S10 will launch with an insanely high price for the higher-end models. On the deep end of the S10... Read more...
Samsung has updated its premium convertible line with a new 2-in-1 laptop, the Notebook 9 Pen. As the name suggests, it comes with the company's revamped S Pen stylus, and of course there is a keyboard attached, the latter of which is not always a given in the 2-in-1 space (we're looking at you, Microsoft Surface Pro). As with the 2018 model, the S Pen conveniently slides into the base of the 2019 version so that it's easier to keep track of. However, it's not the same S Pen as before—Samsung said it reduced the latency on the gold-colored S Pen by up to 2x from the previous model, and that... Read more...
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...
As you probably already know by now, Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10 will be available in a number of configurations. At last count, there will be at least four variants, with a range-topping version including 5G support. However, at the bottom of the totem pole will allegedly be the Galaxy S10 Lite. Noted leaker Ice_Universe has posted what he claims to be a protective display film for the upcoming Galaxy S10 Lite.  Although it's hard to make out from image, if you look closely you can see a circular cutout for the front-facing camera. There's not much else that we can glean from... Read more...
Samsung announced that the Chinese version of its Galaxy A8s mid-range smartphone will be the world's first smartphone to feature a camera hole that is inside the display itself. Before we dive into the phone's details, we should say that it's unclear if this phone will see a release in the United States. Samsung doesn't currently list the Galaxy A8s on it's global product page, and this could be one of those smartphones that just doesn't make it to the North American market. The Chinese Galaxy A8s measures 6.4" diagonally, whereas the phone's display is slightly smaller at 6.2". The display... 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...
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Summit is currently underway in Maui, Hawaii, and we are lucky enough to be in attendance. During this yesterday’s opening keynote address, Qualcomm officially announced its upcoming Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform and today the company provided much more technical detail on the platform. In addition to showcasing its own technologies, however, Qualcomm also brought out an array of partners to talk about the impending 5G wireless roll-out. Over the last couple of days, representatives from AT&T, Verizon, BT Group, One Plus, and Samsung all took to the stage... 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...
You didn't really think that AT&T was gonna sit by and let Verizon hog the limelight with 5G announcements, did you? Of course not. Yesterday, Verizon announced that it would be bringing a Samsung smartphone to market during the first half of 2019 with 5G connectivity. Today, AT&T parroted that move with an announcement of its own. Unfortunately, like the Verizon press release from yesterday, AT&T is incredibly light on details with regards to the phone and the 5G modem that will be used. However, we're confident that the smartphone in question is the unannounced flagship Galaxy... Read more...
The 5G wireless revolution is just getting started here in the United States. Verizon recently launched fixed 5G wireless service in select markets, and mobile 5G wireless networks will be operational later this month. Now, Verizon and hardware partner Samsung have announced that they will roll out "one of the first" production 5G wireless smartphones during the first half of 2019. Prior to that commercial launch, Verizon says that it will be showing off a proof of concept reference smartphone platform that will use Qualcomm's latest mobile SoC in conjunction with the Snapdragon...

We've seen some excellent deals going on smartphones of late, particularly during Black Friday. Samsung has been dealing on its flagship Galaxy Note 9 dating back to October when it announced it was doubling the trade-in offer to lure buyers to upgrade to the Note 9. Amazon had a deal on the Galaxy Note 9 in early October that included a free Galaxy S3 Frontier smartwatch. Those deals were good, but for a lot of people, all they want is a healthy price cut. Today only via the Samsung store you can get a sweet $300 instant rebate on the Galaxy Note 9 good on both the 128GB or 512GB versions... Read more...
Corporate espionage is something that companies all over the world have to deal with. The latest major manufacturer to deal with the ramifications of corporate espionage is Samsung, as nine people have been indicted in South Korea for stealing Samsung's folding display trade secrets and selling them to China. Samsung showed off this folding display tech when it unveiled the folding Galaxy smartphone earlier this month. That smartphone is tipped to sell for as much as $2,500 and be limited in availability. While the people who sold the data can be brought to justice, there is no putting the genie... Read more...
Samsung has announced a new SSD family for those that aren't quite ready to hop on over to the NVMe PCIe bandwagon, or have an older desktop or notebook that only accepts SATA storage. Meet the 860 QVO family, which is available in capacities up to 4TB. According to Samsung, the 860 QVO family makes use of 4-bit multi-level cell (QLC) NAND flash (the first for a consumer SATA product), a Samsung MJX SSD controller, and is available in a standard 2.5-inch form-factor.
