Galaxy S9, Note 8 and A7 (2018) chipsets tipped: Exynos 9810, 9610 and a hexa-core 7885

Samsung announced the Exynos 8895 chipset in the Galaxy S8 as a member of its Exynos 9-series, even though it is coded with the number eight still, so a true Exynos 9xxx is yet to hit the tape. This may all be changing soon, though, as a leakster with a proven track record of outing mobile processors before they are announced, has posted some info on an eventual Exynos 9610. 

Still built on the 10nm process as the Galaxy S8 chipset, the 9610 is said to land with four powerful Cortex-A73 nodes, clocked at 2.4 GHz, and four frugal Cortex-A53 ones for the …


Galaxy Note 8 Emperor edition? 256 GB of storage, 8 GB of RAM

Samsung has a history of launching special edition phones in its homeland of South Korea. From the Galaxy S5 Plus back in the day to the Galaxy Note FE that launched this month. A leakster is claiming that the Galaxy Note 8 might have its own super-powered edition that has a chance to be limited to the South Korean market as well.

We are not sure if this is an issue with translation, but it seems that the suggested device is called the Note 8 Emperor edition. It is said that while the “regular” Note 8 would have 64 GB of storage and 6 GB of RAM, this special beast …

Samsung Australia reveals "Screen Assure" free Galaxy Note 8 screen repair; launch date August 25th?

So far, there has been some question about the Samsung Galaxy Note 8’s model number. For the most part, we have seen SM-N950 used to designate the unlocked version of the phablet. And while it really isn’t a major deal in the scheme of things, an inadvertent leak by Samsung Australia indicates that the model number of Sammy’s next high-end handset is actually SM-N940. That is the model number listed on the Samsung Australia website, which published information about a free screen repair for Note 8 users who break the display.

The “Screen Assure” promotion is being offered by Samsung Australia …

Samsung Galaxy Note FE (Fan Edition) Review

Introduction
The Samsung Galaxy Note Fan Edition needs no introduction. In fact, no device we can think of has garnered more visibility while its actual release was so limited in size and scope. The Galaxy Note FE could arguably be tagged as a simple reincarnation of the Note 7, and that is certainly a valid observation.

Samsung chose to refurbish a large selection of returned devices. Using salvageable components from the beleaguered Note 7 series, Samsung was able to reduce gross waste, and even extract materials that could be put to use in other products.

During the time that …

According to Kim Rok-ho, an analyst from Hana Financial Investment: “Supplies of dual camera modules for Samsung Electronics’ flagship model starting in the latter half this year will also contribute to Samsung …

Leaked images purport to show Galaxy Note 8’s S Pen

At the beginning of the month, we saw some concept renders for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that seemed in line with pretty much all rumours about the device so far. The images also revealed the S Pen that will supposedly come in the Note 8 bundle and, even though there weren’t any close up takes on it, it didn’t appear to be visibly different from the one that came with the flammable Note 7.

Some new leaked images, allegedly of the Note 8 S Pen, have surfaced today to provide a closer look at the device, but it’s safe to say that they don’t give us much more detail …

Leaked images showcase the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 from every side

Ahead of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8’s late August unveiling, Boy Genius Report shared detailed renders of the smartphone supplied by case maker Ghostek. Allegedly, they are based on genuine details and schematics, and while they may not end up being the real thing, they certainly look well-informed!

The upcoming handset is shown from the front, back, top, bottom, left and right. A notable difference from other images like this we’ve seen is that the screen’s edges appear rounded, rather than squared off. Thus, the design is more similar to the Galaxy S8 and S8+, although the top and bottom …
