The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra have barely been on the market for a month, and they're already being deeply discounted. We can't say that it's due to poor sales in particular this early in the game, but these discounts tend to be the case for most Samsung smartphones shortly after launch since the same happened with the Galaxy S20 family. In this case, Amazon is knocking $200 off the price of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, which means that they now start at $799 and $1,099 respectively. Both smartphones are packing flagship-caliber features to justify their high price tags, but we can’t help but feel that this lower price point is more in... Read more...
Well, that was fast. Samsung only launched its latest generation Galaxy Watch 3 barely a month ago, and already it can be had for a deep discount. It is on sale for $365.30 on Amazon, which is 15 percent (or $64.69) below its regular $429.99 selling price. Typically it takes a longer time to see these kinds of markdowns on new products. There is a lot to like about the Galaxy Watch 3. It is the latest in Samsung's line of premium smartwatches, running on Tizen. This latest iteration boasts a slimmer rotating bezel (used for navigation), and is made with premium materials, like a stainless steel case. The version that is on sale is the 45mm model (Wi-Fi) in the 'Mystic Black' color option. Samsung... Read more...
Bop it, twist it, fold it? Among the trends of folding phones, Samsung could be entering the folding phone foray once more. New rumors are floating about that Samsung has a “3rd foldable family member” in the chamber next year as the Z Fold S with a flexible OLED screen and a 360-degree hinge. Back in August, we reported on a possible budget line of folding phones from Samsung, but now it seems some new rumors are afoot. Twitter user @folduniverse dug into the rumors of this new folding phone from Samsung in his tweet below. Samsung rumored to have a 3rd foldable family member next year, tentatively known as Z Fold S.It has got 360° hinge that enables outfold and infold and works... Read more...
Back in early August at Galaxy Unpacked, Samsung unveiled two fresh new Android tablets: the Galaxy Tab S7 and the Galaxy Tab S7+. We’ve managed to get our hands on the latter of those two, which is a fantastic piece of hardware, and probably the best Android tablet has come across our workbench over the years. As you can see in our hands-on video below, the Galaxy Tab S7 is a premium device and is dominated by a large, gorgeous 12.4-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2800x1752 (WQXGA+) and a fast 120Hz refresh rate. Powering the tablet is Qualcomm’s latest flagship SoC: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+. The inclusion of the Snapdragon 865+ also means that that Galaxy... Read more...
As Samsung states, “Mobile devices and computers have become lifelines.” Connectivity is necessary in the world we live in, and the new 5G capability of the Galaxy Book Flex 5G looks to fill the need. Along with 5G, the Galaxy Book Flex 5G will also have WiFi-6 and an Intel 11th Gen Tiger Lake CPU, making it a versatile yet powerful device for on the go and at home use. The 5G capability is not the only major feature this new device packs, however. Going inside the laptop, the horsepower will come from a new 11th Gen Intel Core processor (up to Core i7) with Iris Xe graphics. This horsepower, combined with the battery power, instant wake feature, and responsiveness of the device make... Read more...
The next generation of Samsung foldable devices will soon be in your hands. Samsung just officially announced their new Galaxy Z Fold 2. The device features a refined design, better multitasking capabilities, and easier ways to capture content. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC and 12GB RAM with 256GB internal storage. The unfolded main screen is a 7.6”' QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity Flex Display with a 120 Hz refresh rate while the cover display -- which is used when the device is folded closed -- is a 6.2” HD+ Super AMOLED Display. The unfolded device has a hole punch selfie camera and “minimized” bezels. The 6.2” cover screen... Read more...
Samsung is keeping its foot firmly pressed on the gas pedal by entering into mass production of its third-generation 16-gigabit (Gb) LPDDR5 memory chips for mobile devices, like its upcoming Galaxy S21 handset. Leveraging its most advanced process node (dubbed 1z), this is the first version of 16Gb LPDDR5 to be mass produced using extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography. "The 1z-based 16Gb LPDDR5 elevates the industry to a new threshold, overcoming a major developmental hurdle in DRAM scaling at advanced nodes," said Jung-bae Lee, executive vice president of DRAM Product and Technology at Samsung Electronics. "We will continue to expand our premium DRAM lineup and exceed customer demands, as we... Read more...
We got our first glimpse of Samsung's new 980 Pro SSD back at CES 2020, and at the time, it was promising big performance thanks to its shift from the PCIe 3.0 interface to PCIe 4.0. We were initially told that the 980 Pro would top out with blistering sequential read speeds of 6.5GB/sec, which would absolutely crush anything else available on the consumer SSD market. Today, Samsung is dishing out official specs for the 980 Pro via a product page for the SSD. Overall, Samsung is claiming that the 980 Pro is twice as fast as contemporary PCIe 3.0 SSDs, and up to 12.7 times faster than SATA-based counterparts.  Getting down to actual performance, Samsung quotes up...

Last week we posted our review of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, a premium handset that delivers excellent all-around performance and has a gorgeous display. But one thing we did not do is disassemble the phone. We leave that kind of thing to the teardown experts, and the folks at iFixIt have answered the call with a teardown of both the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5G, with an interesting discovery with regards to cooling. More on that in a moment. As is often the case these days, the Galaxy Note 20 follows the script for using ample adhesive to keep the chassis in place. Or as the teardown gurus put it, the adhesive for this generation "remains annoying tough," though at least the... 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...
Folding displays seem like the next frontier in smartphone design. Whether the actual display folds in half -- as we’ve seen with the Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Motorola Razr -- or if there are dual displays as with the Surface Duo, manufacturers are slowly warming up to the concept. The big problem with all of these designs is their cost of entry, which has turned off many consumers. The Surface Duo starts at $1,499, while the original Galaxy Fold was priced at $1,980. Samsung, however, appears to be working on a new folding Galaxy smartphone that would be more palatable to the general populous. According to a new report from SamMobile, Samsung’s... Read more...
The original Samsung Galaxy Fold was quite the engineering marvel, combining a flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC with a folding 7.3-inch AMOLED display (2152x1536). Despite all of its forward-thinking ideas, there was one problem that Samsung could quite solve with the Galaxy Fold: an unsightly crease in the display when it was unfolded. The crease was not only visible to the naked eye, but you could also feel the indentations in the screen due to the hinge mechanism. Many people had hoped that the second-generation device, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, would be able to solve this problem or at least somewhat reduce the effects. However, a new leaked video shows that the crease unfortunately... Read more...
It is always nice when smartphone manufacturers commit to supporting their handsets with software updates for a long time because let's face it, these pocket-sized computers are expensive. As in, north of grand, in some cases. As it applies to this, Samsung announced it will support select Galaxy phones for three generations of Android OS updates. "Samsung is committed to supporting our users to fully enjoy the latest mobile experiences while they are using Galaxy devices," said Janghyun Yoon, Senior Vice President and Head of Software Platform Team, Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. "As people hold onto their devices for longer, we are working to bring secure protection... Read more...
New renderings have leaked a smartphone that is expected to bring a lower price point to the new Samsung Galaxy S20 line. The new smartphone is called the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G, FE reportedly stands for "Fan Edition." Along with the renders also come some details of the smartphone. One thing that's clear from looking at the renderings is that the device looks very much like the regular Galaxy S20. The FE features a hole punch front camera and three camera sensors on the rear. Samsung uses a screen measuring between 6.4 and 6.5-inches that has slight curves on the left and right edges with a 120Hz refresh. The rear of the device is expected to be made from a matte finished plastic with the... Read more...
Crazy times we live in, isn't it? No, I'm not talking about virus outbreaks or anything political, though that whole toilet paper shortage was certainly interesting (thankfully it looks like that's well behind us now). Instead, I mean the ability to run Android apps on Windows 10. Not in every situation, but with Microsoft's Your Phone app, it is possible on select Samsung Galaxy devices. The update is the latest in an ongoing partnership between Microsoft and Samsung, with the two hooking up around this time last year to "empower people to achieve more across new Samsung devices and Microsoft experiences." In a way, the partnership is an admission by both companies that PCs and mobile devices... Read more...
While the stars of today’s Galaxy Unpacked event is no doubt the new Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (you can read our coverage here), Samsung has also announced a number of other products that complement its flagship phones. Although we haven’t heard a peep about the Galaxy Z Fold 2, the company has given us the scoop on the Galaxy Tab S7/S7+, Galaxy Watch 3, and the Galaxy Buds Live. Samsung Still Embraces Android Tablets With Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ Although most Android OEMs -- including Google -- have long abandoned the tablet market, Samsung is one of the very few that still cranks out competent devices on a yearly basis. Samsung's Galaxy Tab S range has long been compared... Read more...
It is not a foregone conclusion that NVIDIA will end up acquiring Arm, a move that would send shockwaves through the technology industry. That's because NVIDIA may not be the only suitor. Samsung is reportedly interested in buying a stake in Arm as well, albeit a relatively small one (as opposed to acquiring the company outright). Arm's parent company, Softbank, is shopping the semiconductor designer around, and may have multiple suitors. And with good reason—Arm's intellectual property is found in a wide range of designs and hardware in almost every home. From smartphones to a growing base of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and even computer servers, Arm's technology is practically everywhere... Read more...
Some new renders have surfaced that give us our best look yet at what the coming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 smartphone might look like. The images show the smartphone will come in Mystic Black and Mystic Bronze colors. Like the original, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a folding mechanism with a hinge on the side resembling a book. While the Z Fold 2 5G shares the same book-like folding mechanism as its predecessor, there are some significant changes for the new model. One big change for the second-generation model is the replacement of the notch on the outer and inner displays with punch-hole displays. The cover display also has significantly thinner bezels than the original device allowing for a larger... Read more...
Those who own Samsung devices are very familiar with Bixby and the Galaxy Store, however, these kinds of features may soon no longer be on Samsung devices. Rumor has it that Samsung is considering adopting Google products such as the Google Assistant and Play Store in the future.  The Samsung Galaxy Store was first launched in 2009, while a version of Bixby was introduced in 2017. Although Samsung is one of the largest smartphone makers in the world, these kinds of features have received mixed reviews from users. Google has tried for several years to persuade Samsung to adopt products like its Google Assistant. Android is the operating system on Samsung devices, but Samsung has so far refused... Read more...
I'm going to commit the cardinal sin of journalism and bury the lede (though only a little). Why? Because I've had it up to here (picture my hand at the upper section of my forehead, with my eyebrows squinting angrily inward) with supposedly 'leaked' photos that are blurry and in low light, as if a 5-year-old was running through the house with their Fisher Price camera and hitting the shutter button along the way. Except those pics might be a little better than the leaked photo of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G that is making the rounds (and there's your lede, folks). The cropped photo in question is up top (click to enlarge and to see the entire snapshot), posted by XDA Developers (it originally came... Read more...
There may not be many surprises when Samsung gets around to formally introducing its next-generation smartwatch. That is because and extensive hands-on video has purportedly leaked many of the pertinent details, including what sizes the Galaxy Watch 3 will be available in, as well as what it looks like from multiple angles. To start with, according to TechTalkTV on YouTube, it will indeed be called the Galaxy Watch 3. Samsung is apparently skipping the Galaxy Watch 2 branding, presumably to emphasize that is a higher end wearable than its existing Galaxy Watch Active 2. Going with the Galaxy Watch 3 branding would also avoid any potential confusion between the two smartwatches. Shown in the video... Read more...
Samsung threw us a curveball this morning by officially announcing its oft-leaked Galaxy Z Flip 5G a few weeks early. We were expecting the smartphone to be announced on August 5th at Galaxy Unpacked, but here we are without the usual fanfare. The Galaxy Z Flip 5G doesn't change the formula too much compared to the original, but it does ditch last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC in favor or the new flagship Snapdragon 865+ Mobile Platform. As its updated naming suggests, that means that the smartphone now includes standard 5G wireless connectivity courtesy of the Snapdragon X55 modem. Samsung also revealed that the Galaxy Z Flip 5G will be available in two new... Read more...
