Samsung releases new product video for the Galaxy Tab S3

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 is not only a highly spec’d beast of a tablet, it also is quite thin. And it is so light, it practically levitates itself off of the ground. That is the impression that Samsung wants you to have after viewing its newly released product video for the tablet, which goes on sale today. And of course, the S Pen makes an appearance in the clip, smoothly marking up the screen as though it were a figure skate gliding on a clean patch of ice.

The Galaxy Tab S3 features a 9.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1536 x 2048 resolution. Powering the slate is the Snapdragon …

What the Galaxy S8/S8+ and the LG G6 may look like next to an almost bezel-less iPhone 8

2017 is shaping up as the year of small bezels and big displays. Although phone makers have been trying to increase screen size without adding unnecessary bulk to their products for some time, it is only now that something of a more meaningful paradigm shift is emerging on the horizon. Yes, we’ve already seen a couple of “bezel-less” phones, but they didn’t have the mass-market appeal of your iPhones, and Galaxies, and Pixels, and they weren’t really meant to have it. Back in 2014, the Sharp Aquos was a bold and flawed device that showcased what smartphones could look …

Render of a U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 makes an appearance

Tipster Evan Blass’ previous leaks of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ handsets were apparently international models. We come to that conclusion after Blass disseminated a tweet this morning showing another Galaxy S8 render in black. This time, the serial leaker came right out and called it a U.S. version of the phone. The only change we can see is the addition of the Galaxy S8 logo on the back of the device.

To see the biggest difference between the stateside Galaxy S8 and the overseas variant requires that you have X-ray vision. That is because the international model of the phone is powered …

Samsung to boost Galaxy S8 appeal with early bird promos before the April 21 release

Samsung is planning a veritable marketing blitz around the Galaxy S8 and S8+ launch, tips Korean media, and not only on its home turf, but also here in the US.
