The first phone with an in-display fingerprint scanner will come from Vivo, not Samsung

Earlier this week, Synaptics announced it has begun mass production with a top-five OEM to produce its new Clear ID FS9500 in-display fingerprint sensor. While the announcement didn’t specify the name of the company, many assumed Samsung’s Galaxy S9 will be the first smartphone to offer an in-display fingerprint authentication system. After all, the Samsung […]

Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ renders based on CAD designs leave nothing to the imagination

Samsung’s next flagships, the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ – which are widely anticipated to be incremental upgrades over the Galaxy S8 – are bound to make a debut in a few months. While we wait on the official announcement, we can already take a sneak peek at what’s coming by checking out these newly […]

This is our first look at the Samsung Galaxy S9

Ladies and gentlemen, the Galaxy S9.

Samsung knocked it out of the park with the Galaxy S8 in 2017, and as such, expectations for the S9 are pretty high. We’ve already heard a few rumors and reports about what to expect from next year’s flagship, and now we have our first real render of what the phone will probably look like.

The folks at 91Mobiles recently partnered with OnLeaks to share the first CAD render for the  [Read More…]

Samsung smart speaker with Bixby to launch in first half of 2018

The speaker will cost around $ 200 and play nicely with all of Samsung’s other devices.

Samsung confirmed back in August that it was working on its own smart speaker to take on the likes of Amazon Echo and Google Home, but since that initial confirmation, we haven’t heard much of anything else. However, as we near the end of 2017, new details have finally emerged to give us a better idea of what to expect from it.

Sentio Desktop is a Samsung DeX alternative that works with any Android phone

Many companies have tried – and mostly failed throughout the years – to make smartphones work like PCs for years now. Just think of Motorola’s Atrix or HP’s crazy Elite x3 smartphone. But Samsung’s new DeX station seems to have challenged the perception that using a phone as a dedicated computer is something unattainable. Trouble […]

How to replace the back glass on the Samsung Galaxy S7

It might be tempting to get a new phone if you smash the back on your Galaxy S7. But it’s a lot cheaper to just replace the glass yourself.

Glass-backed phones are inherently more fragile than their plastic or metal-backed counterparts. Glass is more slippery, phones are more prone to just slide off surfaces, and while metal or plastic will chip, glass will crack and shatter.

That’s exactly what happened to my Samsung Galaxy S7, and while  [Read More…]

Samsung Galaxy S9 might not come with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 4+ in the US

There’s no doubt that the majority of customers prefer smartphones with big batteries, but if that’s not part of the spec sheet, the next best thing would be fast charging. Because we all like being able to charge our devices as fast as possible. With the Snapdragon 845 now official, it’s expected that Samsung’s upcoming […]

The Mirabook is a laptop powered by your Samsung Galaxy S8, Note 8 or Huawei Mate 10

Remember the DeX dock which allows Samsung Galaxy S8 users to turn their Android phone into a desktop computer? But in order to do that, you’ll need a monitor and some peripherals including a mouse and keyboard. Which basically defeats the idea of portability associated with a smartphone. Well, the company Miraxess has come with […]

Samsung Galaxy S8 Oreo update: Top features + what’s new!

Samsung Galaxy S8 owners around the world will soon be getting their first major Android update. The upgrade to Oreo keeps the core GS8 experience the same, but brings welcome performance tweaks and a handful of new features on top of everything else this phone could already do.

First of all, though, your Galaxy S8 is still a Galaxy S8. This update doesn’t make any drastic changes to the overall look or feel of Samsung’s software, even though technically  [Read More…]
