AMSUNG is aiming to give Apple’s iPad Pro a serious run for its money; hence, the release of the new Samsung Galaxy Book in the Philippines. It is priced at P44,990 (around $890) locally, which isn’t cheap, but neither is the hardware it is going up against. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro with 64GB of storage, and sans the accessories, sells from P36,990 ($732) in authorized stores.
HERE’S apparently another Samsung Galaxy J7 phone headed to the Philippines, as first reported by SamMobile, a website devoted to reporting all things Samsung, and confirmed today by Revü Philippines.
R more likely to be unpacked. Today, Samsung has sent out invites to its August 23 (August 24 in the Philippines) Unpacked event in New York City. And we’re willing to bet the Korean tech giant is launching the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 there.
N the second episode of #RevuLive, we went live from Launchpad, the just-opened headquarters of Voyager Innovations.
ACT: 20 percent of mobile phones shipped internationally are fake. And more than 50 percent of those may have come from China alone, according to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. But whose handsets did counterfeit-phone makers in China copy the most in the first half of 2017? Apple perhaps? Well, we thought wrong.
AMSUNG just announced the new Galaxy J7 Pro for the Philippine market last week, in case you haven’t heard. And while the self-described pro-sumer phone is promising in many respects, the only Samsung device that really interests us at this time of year is the one Sammy will make a big fuss of next.
HEN you taunt another brand about the very thing that it claims to be an expert in, you better make sure that your product delivers in the area where it’s supposed to be good at. So when Samsung Electronics Philippines posted this teaser video for what turned out to be the Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro (click for complete specs), we were determined to find out if the smartphone can really capture great photos in low light, as the Korean tech giant claims.
NE market-research company warned early this year that next crop of smartphones could be more expensive. We already saw devices like the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus getting higher suggested retail prices than their predecessors at launch. And it seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will be in the same boat as well.
AMSUNG has been coming out with some really good premium phones in recent years (you can read about the Galaxy S8 here and here). And the Seoul-based company hasn’t eased off the gas pedal on the entry-level market as it continues with its annual release schedule, which includes the phone you see above, the Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime (click for complete specs).
AVING the latest high-end specs doesn’t always guarantee that your smartphone gets to trump older devices with older specs. Case in point: Apple’s almost-two-year-old iPhone 6s has defeated the newly released Samsung Galaxy S8 in a speed test.
ETAIL analyst GfK has released its report for the fourth quarter of 2016, revealing the 10 best-selling smartphones in the Philippines. Turns out the selfie-focused OPPO F1s was the most saleable model in the country, per data from the study.
OVE over, Apple. Samsung is taking back what it lost in the last quarter of 2016. And it has the numbers, courtesy of market-research company IDC, to back it up.
HE Samsung Galaxy S8 (click for complete specs) and Galaxy S8+ (click for full specs) are getting lots of positive reviews from critics — including us — while pre-order sales have skyrocketed in Korea and in the U.S.
ITH the Samsung Galaxy S8+ (click for complete specs), the larger of the two Samsung hero phones for this part of 2017, the catch is clear: Big-screened phone — bigger than what the Apple iPhone 7 Plus can offer, bigger than you might think if you haven’t seen it in action firsthand — in a reasonable, borderline-manageable size.
AMSUNG’S design for the Galaxy S8 is unprecedented in the company’s history, easily its best to date. And from what we’ve seen so far, the rest of the bits — the internals, cameras, and screen — are nothing if not built to rival or surpass the accomplishments of current crowd-pleasers like the Apple iPhone 7 and the Google Pixel.
EFORE Samsung Electronics Philippines even finishes taking preorders for the Galaxy S8 and S8+, it will introduce the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro (click for complete specs) to the local market.
O apparently, there’s another version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 that was not announced at the phone’s launch. Today, Microsoft has confirmed that there will be a Samsung Galaxy S8 Microsoft Edition (this includes the S8+, just to be clear). Unfortunately, it won’t be available in the Philippines.
AMSUNG has pushed the envelope of smartphone design and, to a lesser extent, technology with each flagship outing in recent years — though it may have done too much in too many areas last year, resulting in the cancellation of a promising big phone. Take one glance at the Galaxy Note 7 headlines, and you’d think there would be no more room for ambition, risk, and chutzpah within the walls of Samsung’s Seoul headquarters.
T has finally been unpacked. Samsung’s flagship phone — of which there are two variants: the Samsung Galaxy S8 (click for complete specs) and the Samsung Galaxy S8+ (click for full specs) — is now official, months after rumors have started swirling around it.
HIS just in: The Samsung upper-midrange phone with 6GB of RAM — launched only in markets like China and India — is coming to the Philippines. Yes, the Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro (click for complete specs) will be introduced to the local market on April 6, about a week after the Korean giant launches the Samsung Galaxy S8 in New York.
