Samsung Galaxy Note 8 sets a new pre-order record in South Korea and in the U.S.

Last year, when the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was unveiled, pre-orders for the device went through the roof. Had the phone not been recalled twice and subsequently taken off store shelves, it might have become one of the most popular handsets ever offered by Samsung. This year, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is smashing pre-order records set by previous Galaxy Note devices.

For example, after 24-hours in South Korea, 395,000 units of the Galaxy Note 8 were reserved. Last year, it took 13-days for the Galaxy Note 7 to hit the 380,000 mark for pre-orders. The record this year was achieved by the Galaxy …

Here is the Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 S in all its glory

Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 S is an unannounced entry-level tablet aimed at children. Sadly, the slate was not introduced at the last Unpacked event where Samsung announced a couple of wearable devices, so we strongly believe the tablet will quietly make its debut on the market.

The budget-friendly tablet will come in two variations: Wi-Fi only and LTE. Both models will run Android 7.0 Nougat operating system right out of the box, but it’s unlikely that they will receive any major updates in the future. 

Specs-wise, the Galaxy …

The latest update for the YouTube
app (12.34.55) is enabling HDR playback on Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices worldwide.

 

The Galaxy S8 and S8+, as well as a
handful of other HDR-certified handsets, recently tapped into Netflix’s
expanding roster of HDR video content, but the latest YouTube app update seems
to have a more limited scope.

 

After installing the latest update
on our Galaxy S8/S8+ and LG G6 units, we discovered that the functionality is
available only on Samsung’s phone. Playback at 1440p60 HDR is not perfectly
smooth on either the S8 or S8+ at this point, but this will …
