Gear S4 may come with a blood pressure monitor, Samsung patent reveals

Apple has made a big fuss out of the health-tracking options that its Watch wearable reveals, and with a good reason. The healthcare sector is a $3 trillion industry, so even a tiny fraction of it holds huge revenue potential. The Watch is even engaged in one of the largest heart studies, thanks to its position as the world’s most popular wearable, and Apple has big plans to outfit it with more functions in the future.

What’s been eluding most smartwatch and fitness tracker makers, however, is the ability to measure, store and monitor a vital that is arguably even more important …

Apple's slow iPhone X sales are hurting Samsung too

TwitterFacebook

It’s not just Apple feeling the effects of lackluster iPhone X sales.

Samsung is also now grappling with the same problem. Since Apple relies on the Korean tech giant for the iPhone X’s expensive display panels, it is now searching for a new buyer, according to a report from Nikkei.

This new development follows earlier reports that Apple was cutting production of the iPhone X after slowing sales. 

The problem for Samsung, though, is that it’s proving more difficult than expected to find takers for the leftover OLED display panels originally intended for the iPhone X. Nikkei reports that Samsung had been counting on other smartphone-makers to follow Apple’s lead and start using the more expensive OLED displays. Read more…

Due to Apple iPhone X production cuts, Samsung faces a glut of OLED production capacity?

Because Apple announced that the average revenue per iPhone unit sold during the fiscal first quarter was higher than expected, it appeared that the iPhone X was selling better than believed. Prior to the earnings release, every other day we would get conflicting reports on how the tenth anniversary model was selling. This quarter, Apple has apparently scaled back production of its $1,000 handset, but whether the cut is as deep as feared is unknown.

A report recently published by Japan’s Nikkei says that Samsung has been hurt by Apple’s decision to cut production of the iPhone X. Samsung …

All Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and S8 models now come with free Gear IconX wireless earphones

Samsung will soon announce a Galaxy S9 and a Galaxy S9+, but that doesn’t mean the company wants customers to stop purchasing its current smartphones. That being said, following a wave of Galaxy-related deals that have been available lately, Samsung now has another offer to buyers of its high-end phones: the company is giving away Gear Icon X (2018) fitness earphones (normally priced at $199.99) for free.
To get yourself a free pair of Gear IconX earbuds, you can buy any of the following Samsung phones (either unlocked, or on a carrier*): …

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.

UPDATE: Samsung was forced to halt the rollout of Android 8.0 after running into “a limited number of cases where Galaxy S8 and S8+ devices have rebooted unexpectedly,” according to a statement …
