New phone in the Galaxy C line could be first Samsung model to sport a dual camera setup

Many have assumed that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 would be the first Samsung handset to sport a dual camera setup. But you know what they say about making assumptions. Instead, a sketch tweeted by a source reveals that it will be a new handset in the Samsung Galaxy C line that will be the first Samsung handset to carry two cameras on back. The sketch also shows that this Galaxy C phone will sport the slotted antenna design instead of those unsightly antenna lines that run on the top and bottom of a phone. Not only do they look much better than those ugly lines, they also do a better job of making …


You can keep your VR headset if you return the Galaxy S8 due to manufacturing defects

The Galaxy S8 launch was not completely uneventful, as many users have noticed a red tint on their phone’s display. Although Samsung was pretty quick in delivering a software update that supposedly fixes the issue, some Galaxy S8 owners plan to return their phones and ask for a refund.

We’ve been recently tipped off by one of our readers who claims his Samsung Galaxy S8 recently received the update that should fix the red tint issue, but it didn’t do what was supposed to do. When he called Samsung and requested a refund, he was told that he could keep the Samsung …

This is what the Galaxy S8 would have looked like if it had a physical home button

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ changed the brand’s design more than any other Galaxy before them. Not only that they went nearly bezel-less, but they’re also the first of the Galaxy family to get rid of the physical home button.

This made for an impressive jump in design, but this may not have always been the final plan for the Galaxy S8 and its bigger sibling. Thanks to a patent filed with the European Trade Mark and Design Network, we now have the chance to see how these two phones would look with actual, physical home buttons.

As you can see by the images below, the difference …

Samsung Galaxy S8 burn-in issue is limited to a single phone so far

A few days ago, we told you that to avoid burn-in on the Super AMOLED screens used on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+, Samsung has the virtual home button move around a very small distance. This allows the pixels that were being used to turn off while lighting up a fresh group. This is done to supposedly prevent any burn-in issue. Or does it? On a South Korean social media website, a Samsung Galaxy S8 owner uploaded a photo that allegedly showed that his screen was affected by burn-in on the lower part of the glass near the virtual home button. Samsung responded by saying that it has …
