Alleged Galaxy S9 CAD drawings depict dual camera, new finger scanner placement

We did hear that the “back of the Galaxy S9 will change a lot” from a leakster with a good track record last week, and, lo and behold, today’s alleged CAD renders of the handset are seemingly confirming this claim. Not that it comes as any surprise that the Galaxy S9 may follow in the footsteps of the Note 8, and be launched with a dual camera, but it was the sensor placement that was a mystery, and we even made a few renders with horizontal or vertical dual camera design, based on various rumors. 

If these computer-assisted design schematics …


Apple iPhone X vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8


Today, smartphones are more accessible than they’ve ever been before. For $100 or less, you can take home a brand-new handset that’s more than ready to get you online, connect you with all your favorite social media, and even snap some decent-looking photos.

While those entry-level options are great for users on tight budgets, there’s no shortage of more expensive models for shoppers able to spend a little more, offering increasingly feature-rich packages with bigger, high-res screens, advanced imaging systems, smoother performance, and eye-catching designs.

At the very far end …

Samsung confirms the existence of a Galaxy A5 (2018)

Since introducing the Galaxy Alpha back in 2014, Samsung’s
been launching multiple Galaxy A smartphone models yearly, and it looks like
this won’t change in 2018.

 

Not long ago, we saw renders allegedly depicting the Galaxy
A5 (2018) and Galaxy A7 (2018). 
Now, Samsung is silently confirming the existence of a
new A5 via a support page that’s accessible on its official South Korean
website. More exactly, the support page mentions an unannounced Samsung SM-A530.
But we know that this is the Galaxy A5 (2018) because the phone’s previous generations
have similar model numbers: SM-A520 …

Best smartphone cameras compared: iPhone X vs Galaxy Note 8, LG V30

Some jokingly call it the iPhone X-pensive or the iPhone 1000-dollars. Others wouldn’t mind spending a grand on it, knowing that they’ll be getting a technological marvel in return. Whichever side you’re on, you’ll probably agree with us when we say that the iPhone X is a remarkable phone – expensive, yes, but also exciting, futuristic, and gorgeously sculpted. In fact, Apple’s greatest is so good at drawing attention with its design that one might easily overlook that outstanding camera at its back. 
We’ve already published our in-depth iPhone …

Samsung unveils the eventual Galaxy S9 chipset, Exynos 9810

Just like that, Samsung kind of, sort of announced its latest and truest 9-series Exynos processor, the 9810. We say truest, as the 8895 in the Note 8 is still market as 9-series by Samsung, even though it is denoted with an eight at the beginning. Internal code numbers aside, there were plenty of rumors that this new Exynos 9810 will be powering the Galaxy S9 and S9+, but looking at the specs that Samsung listed, we are not so sure about this.

First off, the 9810 is still done with the 10nm production node, albeit with the second generation process …

More evidence suggests Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) will come with Infinity Display

It looks like Samsung has big plans for its upcoming Galaxy A (2018) series. The South Korean company is expected to completely redesign the lineup, but also upgrade some of the phones’ components.

Unlike the current Galaxy A smartphones, the future ones are expected to pack the so-called Infinity Display, which was made popular with the Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+.

We heard about that back in September when a set of cases for the Galaxy A5 (2018) and the Galaxy A7 (2018) leaked online suggested these smartphones will feature bezel-less displays and rear-mounted …

Details about the next year Samsung Galaxy J3 might have already been leaked

Although 2017 is not over yet, most smartphone companies are already working on their next year’s lineups. Just like it did in the last couple of years, Samsung plans to launch an entry-level Galaxy J handset.

Obviously, we’re talking about the Galaxy J3, one of the cheapest Android smartphones to be released by Samsung each year. However, that doesn’t mean that the phone isn’t improved each year.

Unfortunately, the 2018 model does not seem to pack too many improvements over the current Galaxy J3 (2017) version. According to a listing up at GFXBench, the Galaxy J3 (2018), also known …

Deal: Unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8+ on sale for just $575 on eBay

Introduced early this year, Samsung’s flagship, the Galaxy S8+ already dropped under $600 in the United States. Many authorized retailers and carriers offered the smartphone for less than $600 when committing to a long-term contract.
