While there have been leaks about Samsung’s new devices like the Galaxy Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3, the company has been cooking up other stuff in the background. Now, the Fan Edition lineup is growing with today’s announcement of the Galaxy Tab S7 FE, a massive 12.4” tablet for both work and play. The Galaxy Tab S7 FE looks to be a rather nice Android 11 device, powered by either a Qualcomm SM7325 (Wi-Fi version) or Snapdragon 750G (5G version). The tablet features 4GB of RAM, up to 64GB internal storage with microSD expansion capability up to 1TB, and a 10,090mAh fast-charging battery for all-day use. Furthermore, that massive display that we mentioned is a 12.4” 2560x1600... Read more...
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...

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...
The Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G is Samsung's most powerful phone yet, but it could also be the last in the line of Galaxy Note handsets, if the latest report out of Korea turns out to be accurate. It states that S-Pen support is headed to Samsung's next-generation Galaxy S21 phone, which would render another Galaxy Note device redundant. According to the report, the Galaxy S21 is currently known by its internal codename called "Unbound." It says there are three models currently in development, those being the M1, N2, and O3. Those monikers presumably align with the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, and Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G, respectively, if Samsung is to recycling its same naming scheme from the current generation.... Read more...
It seems like just yesterday when we reported on some inattentive Galaxy Note 5 users inserting their S-Pen backwards, which in turn got it stuck within its silo. While removing the S-Pen was for the most part possible (if enough force was used), it would invariably break the pen detection on the smartphone. When the issue first gained the attention of the public, Samsung basically told customers to RTFM, stating, “We highly recommend our Galaxy Note 5 users follow the instructions in the user guide to ensure they do not experience such an unexpected scenario caused by reinserting the S-Pen in the other way around." And Samsung was right; on page 25 of the user manual is a warning that clearly... Read more...
It would appear that Samsung aspires to having mobile devices in every conceivable screen size, and not content with traditional size limitations of tablets, the company announced a pair of 12.2-inch tablets called the Galaxy NotePRO and Galaxy TabPRO. The Galaxy TabPro also comes in 10.1 and 8.4-inch configurations. The 12.2-inch devices offer a 16:10 widescreen orientation and an impressive resolution of 2560x1600, which makes them essentially perfect for watching movies on the go. They also feature the personalized Magazine UX that offers a dashboard with a newsfeed and easy access to your most frequently-accessed apps. Samsung Galaxy NotePRO (12.2-inch) Samsung loaded the tablets up with... Read more...
Samsung has a strong presence in the mobile and home entertainment markets, and to that effect the company has decided that it needs its own developers conference to make sure that devs have the full spate of tools and detailed knowledge of how to create, adapt, and innovate for Samsung devices and platforms. “As convergence of user experiences and as consumers utilize more devices, even at the same time, the opportunity for developers to be innovative has never been better,” said Dr. WonPyo Hong, President of the Samsung Media Solution Center. Samsung will be hosting more than 40 sessions that will cover applications and services for smartphones, tablets, and TVs, including introducing... Read more...
Samsung has just announced the Samsung Galaxy Note II, a phone designed to combine the best features of the Galaxy S III and the intriguing S Pen and its associated Pen apps. The Galaxy Note II runs on a quad core 1.6Ghz Samsung Exynos processor and sports 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage (up to 64GB with a microSD card), and a sizable 5.5-inch AMOLED touchscreen with a 16:9 aspect ratio. It has a bigger battery (3100 mAh) than the first Galaxy Note, yet it’s lighter than its predecessor and has a slimmer bezel around the screen. Exact details on pricing and availability will come from the carriers--presumably very soon--and the phone will be out around mid-November. Keep an eye out for word... Read more...
Samsung recently launched the follow up to their Galaxy Tab line of Android-based tablets, the Galaxy Note 10.1. Although the original Galaxy Note's form factor didn’t quite conform to either traditional tablets or smartphones, and some even dubbed it a “phablet”, it has been a huge success for Samsung and has sold millions of units worldwide. With the new Galaxy Note 10.1, not only does Samsung leverage the branding of one of its more popular products, but it’s bringing over some similar technology as well. Along with a few new design queues and software tweaks, the Galaxy Note 10.1 also features Samsung’s S-Pen stylus, which was one of the differentiating features... Read more...
