Following the similar rollouts that went out in the last 24 hours for Sprint’s and Verizon’s versions of the Galaxy S5 in the US, Samsung is now busy pushing out an update to those units purchased from Europe. The update is now rolling out over-the-air in several countries across the continent, coming in as a 53MB download. It will add the usual unnamed bug fixes and performance improvements, but also the security update for January.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 isn’t going to officially be announced this month a MWC 2017, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be completely absent. Samsung’s flagship Android phone for 2017 will be teased on February 26 at the company’s Barcelona press conference, according to The Korean Herald. The sneak peak is said to come in the form of a one-minute video clip, which sounds like just enough time to catch
Earlier today, we learned that the beta program for Nougat on Samsung’s latest flagship pair is officially over. This was shared along with a suggested release time frame of January 2017 for the consumer version. But, if that wasn’t enough to prove Samsung is really working hard on the OTA, it appears the support documentation for both models has now been updated to reflect the OS change and is already spreading
Samsung kicked off the year by making the three often leaked members of its 2017 A series official. The Galaxy A7 (2017), Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A3 (2017) were expected to debut on January 5 at a dedicated event in Malaysia, but the companys global press site listed them today. All three new handsets come with IP68 certification for water and dust resistance and sport fingerprint scanners in their home buttons. They run on Android
Samsung is reportedly working on its own voice-activated AI system, as we heard before. But to differentiate from Alexa, Cortana and Siri it will have a male voice and will be named Bixby. We are expecting to hear from him (pun intended) in March when the Galaxy S8 is revealed but according to our source it will also be a crucial part of Galaxy Note 8. The phone, we now hear, is also going to have a UHD 4K resolution display which

The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2017), which is already Bluetooth certified and also been spotted on Zauba as well as several benchmarking websites, has now been certified by the US Federal Communications Commission as well. Specs-wise, the Galaxy A7 (2017) is rumored to be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 7870 SOC, and is said to sport a 5.5″ or 5.7″ 1080p touchscreen. Other key specs of the device include 16MP/16MP camera combo, 3GB/(32 or 64)GB
Last month Samsung went further than ever in trying to ensure that all Galaxy Note7 units sold in New Zealand are returned following its discontinuation of the device. Working with the carriers over there, the company has basically shut down mobile network access for those Note7 handsets still in the wild. This move has apparently proved successful, since Samsung is now getting ready to do the exact same thing in neighboring Australia.
The Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) has passed quite a few of the mandatory steps before going official – with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi certifications cleared, it also popped up on GeekBench and was also featured in a render video. Well, one of the preliminary units has apparently slipped out of the confines of NDAs and has gotten reviewed on video. Sadly, the video has since been taken down, but we’ll walk you through it. First
Following the Samsung Galaxy A3 (2017), the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017) has also been certified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), indicating that the handset’s launch date is nearing. Specs-wise, from what all has been revealed so far, the device is powered by an Exynos 7880 chipset, and sports a 5.2-inch touchscreen. It has 3GB RAM, 16GB storage, 13MP main camera, and a 3,000mAh battery. The
Samsung is working on a successor to the Galaxy Grand Prime from 2014. The upcoming Grand Prime (2016) has so far been benchmarked and spotted at the FCC as well as in an Indian import tracking database. So clearly it should be arriving soon. While we do know quite a few of its specs already thanks to that aforementioned benchmark run, today courtesy of Samsung itself we have some news about its software, since the company’s published
By now you’d expect a Samsung Galaxy Note7 from the first batch to easily catch fire – after all, that’s why the Korean company recalled all 2.5 million units it sold until September 2. On the other hand, you probably wouldn’t expect a replacement unit, deemed safe by its maker, to have the same fate. Yet it appears as that’s exactly what happened today in Louisville, Kentucky, aboard a Southwest flight to Baltimore. While the plane
We all know the rollercoaster ride that the Galaxy Note7’s short life has been – announced after great anticipation, sales surpassing initial predictions leading to delays on some markets, only to be halted globally in light of reports of exploding batteries, followed by a worldwide recall of units already sold. India was not in the first wave of launches, and just as pre-orders were about to ship on September 2,
As you might already know, the successor to last year’s Samsung Galaxy Folder – allegedly dubbed Galaxy Folder 2 – has already been the subject of several image leaks so far. But that, apparently, hasn’t stopped more leaked images of the device from surfacing online. Following is the latest set of leaked images: Specs-wise, the phone –
As if the exploding Galaxy Note 7 fiasco was not enough, Samsung is facing another embarrassing situation: a Galaxy S7 edge unit caught fire in the owner’s pocket, “causing him second and third degree burns.” The incident happened when owner Daniel Ramirez was working at a construction site in Ohio. Reports say the phone was in his right front pocket when suddenly it started “whistling, screeching, and
The Samsung Galaxy Note7 was off to a great, but a quickly discovered battery defect caused Samsung to issue an unprecedented worldwide recall. We now hear the replacement stock for Portugal is already on the way and should be ready for exchange for September 19. The phablet has successfully launched in China and few other markets recently, where Samsung made sure the Note7 units don’t pack faulty batteries.
A couple of weeks after there were reports that Samsung may start selling refurbished units of its flagship phones, the South Korean company has started offering such models in the United States. A quick look at the tech giant’s US website reveals a new section dubbed Samsung Certified Pre-Owned Phones. Currently, the company is selling refurbished models of the Galaxy Note 3, S4, S5, S6, S6
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a phone that’s designed for a very specific user base: those who want a larger screen but are craving a stylus too. That’s not to say others might not get some benefit from it, but it’s mostly centred around the functionality of the S Pen. The S Pen is, indeed, back again, and comes with more features and tricks to justify its existence. I’m still not sold on the point of it, but there
The Samsung Galaxy Note7 is built on the S7 platform. This means the chipset is either Snapdragon 820 or an Exynos 8890 (which one you get depends on geography) and 4GB of RAM. Yep, there’s no upgrade in RAM over the S7, despite the numerous 6GB rumors. Anyway, we just got an early unit that isn’t 100% ready for a review. It’s the Exynos version, which is what Europeans have to look forward to, while the US is getting the Snapdragon
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has officially launched, confirming the many weeks of rumors about its curved design, 5.7-inch display, top-of-the-line specs and S Pen stylus. The Note 7 is the large-screen phone for 2016 that Android power users have been anxiously waiting to upgrade to, and it takes several cues from the awesome Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. Sure, the S7 Edge stretched fingertips into near-phablet
Today is Note7 day – only if you’ve been living under a rock you don’t already know that Samsung’s latest flagship phablet got official. We have already told you when you can expect to purchase (and pre-order) it in the US, but what about Europe? Unlike some past Samsung smartphone launches, the Note7 isn’t going to become available in Europe at the same time as the US, where pre-orders start tomorrow and the phone will be out on
