Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, then you know that Samsung announced its Galaxy S10 family of smartphones yesterday along with the Galaxy Fold and a number of other Galaxy-branded accessories. The South Korean electronics giant said that preorders would open today, and right on cue, the major wireless carriers in the United States have lined up with their promos for the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. So, without further ado, here’s the pricing breakdown for each smartphone in both carrier-locked and unlocked versions. Galaxy S10e Verizon is... Read more...
Samsung has not hidden the fact that it plans to launch a smart speaker with Bixby integration called the Galaxy Home, and according to its product page, it is "coming soon." How soon, you ask? Samsung's mobile boss DJ Koh indicated it will launch by April, though he did not give an exact release date. There was no mention of the Galaxy Home during yesterday's Unpacked event, in which Samsung unveiled a bunch of Galaxy S10 handsets, the Galaxy Fold, a few new smartwatches, and wireless Galaxy Buds. It was a pretty robust event even without the Galaxy Home being a part of the product bonanza. After... Read more...
It seems like Samsung and Apple just aren't getting the memo from consumers that people aren't happy with the pricing of their flagship devices; prices are pushing into the well over $1000 zone. Apple has seen its iPhone upgrade cycle lengthen to four years with much of the reason placed on the high price of the smartphones. Samsung is facing the same challenge as its prices go ever higher with each new generation. A new report from research firm Gartner says that Huawei is gaining ground on them in part because the pricing of iPhone and Galaxy devices is so high. Smartphone makers from China,... Read more...
Without a doubt, Samsung's new Galaxy S10 family is impressive on many levels. While Samsung's top flagship smartphone is the Galaxy S10 5G, that device won't be shipping until later in the first half of 2019. Until then, the Galaxy S10+ will reign supreme as the top end device that Samsung has to offer; and from our early look at this device, it appears to be a pocket-sized supercomputer. The top-end Galaxy S10+ comes packing a 6.4-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a 19:9 aspect ratio and Quad HD+ resolution. It features a total of three rear cameras, two selfie cameras, a large 4100... Read more...
Although we got our first look at the Galaxy Watch Active earlier this month, Samsung officially announced the new wearable device today at its Unpacked event. The smartwatch is designed to look sporty, accommodating those with an... wait for it... active lifestyle. The wearable is a more fitness-oriented alternative to last year's Galaxy Watch and can be configured in black, silver, rose gold or sea green. Getting down to specifics, the smartwatch has a 1.1-inch 360x360 display and is powered by Samsung's own Exynos 9110 processor. There's 768MB of RAM included and 4GB of internal... Read more...
Samsung's first foldable smartphone is now official. As expected, the South Korean electronics maker unveiled the Galaxy Fold during its Unpacked event today, alongside its new generation of Galaxy S10 handsets. Unlike the Galaxy S10 lineup, however, the Galaxy Fold fits into a new category with its 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display. "Today, Samsung is writing the next chapter in mobile innovation history by changing what’s possible in a smartphone. Galaxy Fold introduces a completely new category that unlocks new capabilities never seen before with our Infinity Flex Display." said DJ Koh, President... Read more...
After months of leaks (which picked up in pace over the past few weeks), Samsung has officially unveiled its Galaxy S10 family of flagship phones. To put it simply, these are all impressive devices that are worthy successors to the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. We can’t talk about the Galaxy S10 family without first mentioning their displays. Samsung was one of the few that didn’t embrace the traditional center-mounted display notch fad in 2018. However, Samsung’s answer to the notch is the punch-hole cutout that it calls Infinity-O. On the Galaxy S10e and Galaxy S10, which... Read more...
After months of leaks, today is the big day for Samsung’s Galaxy S10 family. The company is expected to launch the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. There are even whispers that the company will unveil an even larger model with access to next-generation wireless networks called the Galaxy S10 5G. Thankfully, if you can’t be there in person at Samsung’s Unpacked event in San Francisco, the company will host a live stream, which you can watch below: The event kicks off at 2pm EST (11am PST), giving you a “virtual” front row seat to everything that Samsung...

As older devices age, many smartphone shoppers are simply forgoing the big boys like Apple and Samsung and going for much cheaper alternative flagship devices from reasonably priced makers like Xiaomi. Xiaomi has rolled out a new flagship device that is impressive on paper and very affordable. The new device is called the Xiaomi Mi 9, and it has officially debuted packing a Snapdragon 855 under the hood and a 48MP rear camera with a price that is up to a third less than what you would pay for some flagship Galaxy or iPhone devices. Xiaomi is offering the Mi 9 starting at $445, and for that price... Read more...
The era of crazy expensive smartphones is certainly upon us; iPhone models from last year along with Galaxy devices showed that smartphone makers believe consumers will spend over $1,000 on a new device. A new price leak out of China has surfaced that shows the price for the high-end Galaxy S10+ smartphone listed at 10,000 yuan, which is about $1,500. Previous pricing leaks have hinted that the device will sell for right around that same price in multiple parts of the world. Perhaps just as troubling for fans of the Galaxy S10+ is that the model right below that 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage... Read more...
Following a downsizing effort that began last year, GlobalFoundries may be in search of a buyer. This would be a major move in the semiconductor sector, as GlobalFoundries is the world's third largest foundry company, behind Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and Samsung Electonics. Global Foundries holds an 8.4 share of the global foundry market. Intel is not included because it manufacturers semiconductors for its own products, as opposed to building them for others. Just last month, Global Foundries sold its 200mm Fab 3E in Tampines, Singapore to Vanguard International Semiconductor... Read more...
Although we've been calling it the Galaxy F for months, it looks as though Samsung has settled on an official name for its first folding smartphone: Galaxy Fold. It's not the most imaginative name for the device, but it at least gets the point across right up front. The branding leak comes courtesy of Evan Blass, so we can pretty much take the information as fact. Samsung will officially unveil the production version of the Galaxy Fold tomorrow alongside the highly-anticipated Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. While we don’t know the particulars with regards to... Read more...
Just when we thought there was nothing left to leak in regards to Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10 product family, a Norwegian TV station said, 'Hold my beer' and proceeded to air a commercial for the Galaxy S10+. This did not happen only once, mind you, but twice before the station realized its apparent error and yanked the ad. Well, supposedly it was an error, anyway. Who really knows with these things—it's long been thought that Samsung and Apple intentionally leak information about upcoming product launches to drum up excitement and create a bunch of buzz. The Galaxy S10 in particular has... Read more...
Android 9 Pie was first released to the public on August 6th 2018, and was quickly made available for production devices including Google's own Pixel smartphones and OnePlus devices. However, the largest smartphone OEM in the world has been extremely slow with its public rollout of the major OS update. One would think that unlocked versions of Samsung devices would be among the first to receive Android 9 Pie, as they don't have carrier bloatware attached, but that just hasn't been the case for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+. Carrier-locked models (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile,... Read more...
