Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 may have just leaked ahead of MWC 2018 announcement

Samsung fans are most likely focused on learning as much as they can about the company’s upcoming flagships – Galaxy S9 and S9+. However, there’s another device that South Korean handset maker is likely to introduce later this month at Mobile World Congress 2018, a new tablet.

Even though the Galaxy S9 is expected to steal the show, Samsung has another ace up its sleeve, the Galaxy Tab S4. The unannounced tablet has been recently spotted at GFXBench, along with some of its specs.

Naturally, the Galaxy Tab S4 (model number SM-T835) is a high-end tablet, so it’s no wonder that it packs …


New Cricket subscribers can buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 for $350 (50% off) under certain conditions

A week from this Sunday, the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9+ will both be unveiled. All of a sudden, those with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ will own a phone belonging to the previous generation. But this dynamic allows retailers and carriers to take an axe to the price of the 2017 flagships right now, as they try to quickly reduce their inventory of the older models to make room for the new units.

Take Cricket Wireless, for example. The AT&T-owned pre-paid carrier has a great deal on the Galaxy S8 that amounts to a 50% off discount. It’s simple, really. Switch …

Samsung Galaxy J4 (2018) leaks with entry-level specs

The Samsung Galaxy J5 from 2017
Samsung might be in the making of a new entry-level smartphone – the Galaxy J4 (2018). This is the conclusion we arrived at after learning that a phone with the model name Samsung SM-J400F appeared in the Geekbench benchmark database.
 
The not-yet-announced model runs Android 8.0 and has a quad-core 1,4 GHz processor on the inside, probably the Exynos 7570 that was present in the Galaxy J3 (2017) as well, alongside 2 GB of RAM. The alleged device has a Geekbench score of 623 for single-core …

Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+ teaser is all about taking great selfies

Yesterday, we showed you three new video teasers from Samsung for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ that focused (no pun intended) on some of the upcoming flagships’ photographic features. We saw video shot in slo-mo, and recorded under less than optimal lighting conditions. Today, we find another new video teaser that is titled “The Camera Reimagined.” This would indicate that Samsung has rebuilt the cameras on its 2018 flagship phones from scratch.

The new video shows a number of different effects, many of which are already available to owners of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy …

Samsung stops pushing out Android 8.0 Oreo, starts work on new version? (UPDATE)

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ owners were pleased as punch last week as the manufacturer started rolling out the much anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo update in certain markets. However, a report published today states that Samsung has stopped disseminating the update for unknown reasons. The G950/G955-FXXU1CRAP files, which contain Android 8.0, can no longer be downloaded from Sammy’s servers.

The first Samsung Galaxy S9 teaser videos are here: 3D emoji, slow-mo, superb low-light camera teased

SamsungMobileKorea has just uploaded a slew of Galaxy S9 teasers on its YouTube page, and just like any self-respecting video teaser should do, these all but confirm many of the key features that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are wildly expected to have.

The first video blatantly reveals the advantages of slow-mo videos, the second one is a dead giveaway for superb low-light photography thanks to the variable aperture that can go as wide as f/1.5, and the third one… Well, the third one is a sign of the times as it features 3D emoji, which would allow users to create animated …

Samsung Galaxy S9 with Exynos 9810 on deck pops up in benchmark, humiliates Snapdragon 845

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are just around the corner, and just as one could expect, almost everything regarding these anticipated devices is known at this point. Come to think of, only camera samples remain to be released to the world, but we probably wouldn’t have to wait for those for too long – after all, the Galaxies go official in less than two weeks and we will be at the epicenter of their debut to provide you with all the necessary coverage.

Now, a new benchmark entry on Geekbench seems to be giving us a sneak peek at the performance of the Exynos 9810-powered …

Samsung Experience 9.0 vs 8.5, here are the new emojis

A new set of emoji was recently announced by the Unicode Consortium, the non-profit organization that develops and promotes the use of these symbols in all major operating systems, meant for adoption by major platforms in 2018. 

Phone makers, however, can mix and match their own versions, and Samsung has apparently been hard at work overhauling its emoji roster for its Experience 9.0 version that is landing on the Galaxy S8 as we speak, and will be present on the Galaxy S9 out of the box, too.

There are plenty of changes to look forward too, the most notable being …
