We already know that Samsung is going to release its Galaxy Note 8 handset in black and gold color options. However, those will not be the only choices. Infamous inside man Evan Blass (you might know him better as @evleaks on Twitter) posted another official looking press render of the Galaxy Note 8, this time dressed in what he describes as a "Deep Sea Blue" color scheme. Sadly the single front-facing shot does not show a whole lot of the Deep Sea Blue color scheme, though what little is visible indicates it will be a snazzy looking color option. Since the display is so large and wraps around... Read more...
Samsung is certainly looking to make a splash during its forthcoming Unpacked event on Wednesday, August 23. The big unveiling will be that of the Galaxy Note 8, the long-awaited successor to the Galaxy Note 7 that went up in flames (literally or figuratively, take your pick). However, a couple of other items will be joining the show, including a new GearVR headset and a new Gear Fit2 Pro fitness band.Do not let the name of the Gear Fit2 Pro fool you, it will actually be the third generation fitness tracker from Samsung. Its second generation model is simply Gear Fit2 without the "Pro" label at... Read more...
The Samsung Portable SSD T3 was a compact, durable, lightweight, and fast external solid state storage device, that offered killer performance when it launched. The T3 has been out for quite a while, however, and Samsung has since released a few newer types of flash memory, which are better suited to low-power, portable storage devices. As such, the company decided to tweak the T3’s design, update it with newer 64-layer 3D V-NAND flash memory, massage the firmware, and the brand-new Samsung Portable SSD T5 was born.We’ve got one of the new Portable SSD T5’s on-hand and have some benchmarks to share...

As a major player in the storage market, Samsung has the advantage of also being a producer of its own flash memory chips. That means it does not have to rely on other chip makers, but can innovate and actively drive the market forward. And that is exactly what Samsung is doing. At its inaugural Samsung Tech Day at this year's Flash Memory Summit, Samsung trotted out various vertical NAND (V-NAND) solutions. It also announced a 1-terabit V-NAND chip that will pave the way for more capacious M.2 NVMe solid state drives. This is something that Samsung has been working on for quite some time. After...

We have already spied some early looks at the Galaxy Note 8 as it appears in press renderings, though never have we seen pictures of the real deal. That is, until now. With just over a couple of weeks separating us from Samsung's August 23rd Unpacked event in New York City where the company is expected of official unveil the Galaxy Note 8, some real life images of the handset have found their way to the web.The leaked photos originally appeared on an obscure blog called My Everyday Tech (yeah, we had never heard of it either) before they were taken down. The Internet has a way of never letting... Read more...
After what seems like endless leaks, Samsung and AT&T have officially confirmed the Galaxy S8 Active along with its availability. The Galaxy S8 Active is being billed as the “toughest Galaxy Smartphone yet”, although we’ll wait for independent verification of those claims given what happened last year with the Galaxy S7 Active. Samsung says that the Galaxy S8 Active is shock-, water-, shatter- and dust-resistant, and according to previous leaks, it should have longer battery life compared to its siblings. The Galaxy S8 also has a massive 4,000 mAh battery compared to 3,000 mAh and 3,500 mAh... Read more...
Like many people back in the day, I owned a Motorola Razr flip phone and thought that device was the coolest phone ever made at the time. I particularly miss being able to flip that thing shut when the person calling me was annoying, it was almost as fulfilling as slamming the receiver down back in the corded phone days.  Samsung has a new smartphone that will make fans of those old-school flip phones smile called the Leader 8, and it just launched in China. The Leader 8 has two displays with one on the front, outside of the device and another tucked away inside the phone above the keypad.... Read more...
Just a few days ago, notorious leaker Evan Blass (otherwise known by his Twitter handle, @evleaks) tweeted out official press renderings of Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy Note 8 handset. At the time, he said that more details would be revealed soon. Making good on that promise, Blass has now revealed a bit more about the phablet, including the fact that it will ship with a 6.3-inch  Super AMOLED display.In our experience, Samsung's Super AMOLED panels are some of the best looking displays around. It is no surprise that the Galaxy Note 8 will wield one, though some may find the actual size a... Read more...
Infamous leaker Evan Blass, otherwise known by his Twitter handle @evleaks, took to social media to post what appear to be official press renderings of Samsung's not-yet-announced Galaxy Note 8 handset. In doing so, Blass has seemingly confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 will in fact ship with a dual rear camera configuration. The leaked shots depict the Galaxy Note 8 in both black and gold color options. Unlike many leaked photos that end up on the web, we get a crystal clear look at the unreleased handset from the front, back, and both sides. We also get a glimpse of the S Pen in both black and...

There have been more leaks surrounding details of the Galaxy S8 Active than a submarine with a screen door, or so it seems as of late. Just this past Monday, purported real-life images (i.e., not renders) emerged showing the Galaxy S8 Active sporting a rugged polycarbonate shell. Now here we are at the end of the week with newly leaked slides providing information on the phone's final specification sheet making the rounds on the web. A user on China's massively popular Weibo microblogging site posted the images. While we have no way of confirming their legitimacy—Samsung isn't likely to comment... Read more...
Three weeks ago, Samsung gave us guidance on its Q2 2017 earnings, claiming that it would have a blockbuster second quarter. Well, the official numbers are in and Samsung has made good on its claim. The South Korean company reported revenue of $54.8 billion (KRW 61.00 trillion) during the quarter and operating profit of $12.6 billion (KRW 14.07 trillion).  Samsung partially attributed the healthy quarter to strong sales of its Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones which launched in April to favorable reviews. According to Samsung, sales of the Galaxy S8 family have been tracking roughly 15... Read more...
The Galaxy Note 8 might be the most highly anticipated new smartphone from Samsung, but the newest version of a popular Galaxy model is also about to make its debut. We’re talking of course about the Galaxy S8 Active, which is the beefier, more shock-resistant version of the gorgeous (and delicate) Galaxy S8. Luckily for us, images of the smartphone have leaked once again, this time showing the Galaxy S8 Active in real life (instead of in renders). If you’re familiar with the current Galaxy S8 and previous “Active” variants, the pictures of the Galaxy S8 Active shouldn’t be too surprising. We see... Read more...
  Samsung has sent out invites for its “Unpacked” event, which is scheduled for August 23rd in New York City. Judging by all of the previous leaks and the image that Samsung sent out (which shows an Infinity Display device with an S Pen), it should come as no surprise that this will be the coming out party for the Galaxy Note 8. Samsung is expecting us to “Do bigger things” with the Galaxy Note 8, and we can’t wait to see what the company has in store for customers.Save the date!

While nothing is yet official, it is a pretty safe bet that Samsung is going to release a rugged version of its Galaxy S8 handset called the Galaxy S8 Active. Previous reports say the unannounced handset is codenamed Cruiser and that it will be an exclusively offered by AT&T. The Galaxy S8 Active has also popped up on benchmarking websites and has received its Wi-Fi certification. And thanks to a third-party accessory company on Amazon, we now have what could possible be the first render of the unreleased smartphone.Even though Samsung and AT&T have yet to officially acknowledge the Galaxy...
