Samsung's high-end W2018 clamshell gets handled on video, release pegged for December

It will supposedly sport a Snapdragon 835 processor and pack 6 GB RAM with 64 GB internal memory. A 4.2-inch AMOLED display will be included as well, along with a 12-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel selfie snapper.

Here are the first live pictures of Samsung's W2018 clamshell flagship

Despite the fact that clamshell smartphones aren’t mainstream anymore, Samsung continues to launch this type of handsets, at least in some parts of the world.

This year’s clamshell flagship, Samsung W2018 hasn’t been introduced yet, but the smartphone was certified by TENAA, the Chinese regulatory entity.

Grab Samsung's Gear S2 smartwatch for just $105

Samsung’s Gear S3 is one of the best smartwatches around, but it’s also way too big for many: its 46mm dial is just not for every wrist. Last year’s Samsung Gear S2, however, is much more universal in terms of size: it has a 42mm circular watchface with the familiar rotating bezel, and you can now get one for just $105, way off its original price.
This is a limited time deal on DailySteals, so you’d better hurry up if you want to get one.
The Gear S2 offered in this deal is a brand new one, offered in a white box and …

Bye, Bixby: Update lets you disable the Bixby button on Samsung's Galaxies

Galaxy S8, S8+, and Note 8 users have learned to live with the Bixby button by now, either loving the functionality or totally ignoring its existence. Samsung is notoriously still playing catch with all modders who develop remapping apps that allow you to hijack the hardware button and use it for other purposes, but recently, the South Korean giant has caved in a bit.
Thanks to a recent update, the Bixby button will no longer launch Bixby Home or wake up your device from sleep, if you have it setup this way from Bixby settings.
Wait, …

Samsung's new wireless earbuds are good, but they're no AirPods

TwitterFacebook

Even if you still have a phone with a headphone jack, chances are you’re interested in true wireless earbuds — they’re the ones without a cable connecting the two nubs that go into your ears — because who actually likes wires?

There’s a ton of wireless earbuds flooding the market this holiday season. Most are aimed at Apple’s AirPods, like Samsung’s new Gear IconX 2018.

At $199, they’re pricier than AirPods, too. So how do they stack up?

The IconX 2018’s are Samsung’s second stab at true wireless earbuds. The original ones took a fitness-first approach, cramming in a heart rate sensor inside. Read more…

Awesome Galaxy S9 renders offer an early glimpse at what Samsung's next flagships might look like

Samsung was among the first major phone makers to usher in the bezel-less design trend that’s taken the mobile world by storm and is seemingly on its way to become the next de-facto norm for smartphone industrial design. The Galaxy S8 and S8+, followed by the mighty Note 8, were all running successes for Samsung, and looking back now, it’s kind of hard to believe that the S8 is actually over half a year old. Yup, the iconic bezel-less duo released back in April, and think about this – that was 6 months ago and there’s about 7 months, give or take a week or two, until their …

We could see Bixby 2.0 at Samsung's Developer Conference next week

This coming Wednesday, October 18th, Samsung will be holding its annual Developer Conference in San Francisco. During the event, we could see Bixby 2.0 unveiled. The virtual personal assistant made its debut on the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+, and now Samsung wants to find third party products and non-smartphone devices that can benefit from having Bixby 2.0 on board.

Unfortunately for Samsung, Bixby has not been warmly welcomed by the public. Problems getting the virtual assistant to understand English forced it to be delayed for about two months. In addition, there seems to …
