WO days after The Guardian had detailed the Samsung Galaxy S8’s supposed features, a tech journalist — whose leaks have always been spot on — came out with his own report about the Korean giant’s upcoming flagship smartphone. And he basically confirmed what the British site had revealed.
T’S still a little over two months away from the Samsung Galaxy S8‘s expected launch, but leaks have already kicked into high gear. And if we are to believe the latest report about the device, then it seems the Korean tech giant has made sure that its upcoming flagship smartphone is a major upgrade over the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
ARLIER today, we wrote a piece about the LG G6 being (partially) outed by The Verge by way of a render that shows off the top half of the device. Many gushed over LG’s use — or almost non-use — of bezels that drew comparisons to Xiaomi’s daring Mi MIX concept phone.
HE world can rest easy, as Samsung today answered that — pardon us — burning question on everyone’s lips. At a news conference, the tech giant confirmed that bad batteries and bad decisions were to blame for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 fire incidents that led to its discontinuation just two months after its launch.
HINESE smartphone vendors still reign over the industry amid a 1.1 percent growth to 363 million shipments in Q3 2016, according to the latest numbers published by market-research firm IDC.
AMSUNG announced at CES 2017 in Las Vegas this month refreshed models of the Galaxy A series phones. And as if to confirm that the Philippines is an important market for the Korean electronics giant, the new Galaxy A5 (click for complete specs) and A7 (click for full specs) have made their way to local stores (without much fanfare), where they retail for P19,990 and P23,990, respectively. The more impressive of the duo, the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017), which has a generous screen size and battery capacity, is what we will be taking a closer look at today.
HERE have been numerous leaks involving Samsung’s next flagship model, some of which seem more credible than others. Like this set of photos published on Weibo — China’s Twitter, if you may — that are said to be a Samsung Galaxy S8 unit in gold.
E’VE seen foldable mobile devices, but they’re all just concepts — stuff that look cool but may never see the light of day. Not in the near future. Maybe not ever. None of them have gone into production just yet. But that may change soon.
AMSUNG Electronics Philippines has fired its opening salvo of the year, launching two of the three models that are part of the 2017 edition of the Galaxy A Series. The lineup has been listed on the tech giant’s global press site since early January.
NOTHER January, another CES done. And once again, this year’s edition of the biggest consumer-electronic show gave us a look at what’s out there in the world of technology and what’s about to come. 2017 is even memorable as CES celebrates its 50th anniversary.
T’S early in the new year, which means the internet is again rife with rumors about the possible design, specs, features, and whatnot of the next Samsung Galaxy flagship. We’ve heard quite an earful about how different (and how important) the Samsung Galaxy S8 would be compared to its predecessors, but so far we haven’t seen anything in the wild to confirm or support those claims. Until now.
AMSUNG has kicked off the new year by announcing its revamped Galaxy A series of smartphones ahead of CES 2017 in Las Vegas. Initially tipped to debut in Malaysia on January 5, the lineup has been listed on Samsung’s global press site, and includes the Galaxy A3, A5, and A7.
Samsung’s been in the tablet business for quite some time, and over the years, it has played around with different designs to keep things interesting. Right now, it seems the Korean giant has taken a different approach to making mid-range slates, as evidenced by the outward appearance and 4:3 screen ratio of its new Galaxy Tab A tablet. It is, in many ways, the unofficial successor to the Galaxy Note 8.0.
