How would you like to be the first person on your block to have the Samsung Galaxy S9 wallpaper on your phone? Thanks to tipster extraordinaire, Evan Blass, this is not a pipe dream. Blass had posted a tweet earlier this afternoon containing the wallpaper that was seen on the renders he sent out the other day.

Not all headphones can endure the intensity that exercising brings to the table, but the JLab Epic Sport Wireless Earbuds may have what it takes to be the single pair of headphones you use for the occasion going forward.

Dual SIM Galaxy S9 and S9+ models listed, may sport dual VoLTE as well

Not that it comes as a huge surprise, but the Galaxy S9 may land with a dual SIM version for those who need hooking up to more than one carrier or plan. Samsung has filed for regulatory approval of a dual SIM handset denoted as SM-G9608, with the “8” in the end standing for a Taiwan model. 

There are two more dual SIM versions listed there, too – an SM-G9600 for China, and the eventual Galaxy S9+, with an entry number SM-G9650. Given that the Galaxy S8 is SM-G950, and the S8+ is marked as SM-G955, there is every chance that these dual SIM devices listed in the databases …

Snapdragon 845 phones like Galaxy S9 may sport Quick Charge 4+, here's what it means

Last week, Qualcomm announced the eventual Galaxy S9 chipset for the US models, Snapdragon 845. Previously, Samsung had given some details about its new Exynos 9810 processor, which, however, will most likely find its way into the global versions of the phone, as usual. What piqued our interest with the 845, however, was the promise for upgraded fast charging abilities, as the silicon has Quick Charge 4+ tech built in.

Samsung calls its own technology for pumping the Galaxy handsets full of electrons quickly Adaptive Fast Charge, which is probably what …

If you are holding off on buying the Apple iPhone X, hoping that next year’s model won’t have the infamous “notch” at the top of the screen, better sit down. According to a report issued by Japanese securities firm Nomura (which was obtained by Business Insiders), all three versions of the 2018 iPhone will come with the notch. What is interesting is that one model will feature an edge-to-edge LCD screen instead of the OLED panel that will be found on the other two 2018 units. This device will offer Face ID and will be considered a mid-range unit priced at $650 to $900. It will have just a single …

The official Samsung Gear Sport watch faces are now available on the Gear S3 and Gear S2

When it launched earlier this year, the Samsung Gear Sport had a bunch of exclusive watch faces on board that were not present on previous models. However, a new update from Samsung is now bringing all four dials from the Gear Sport to the Gear S3 and S2, so owners of the previous generations of smart timepieces are not missing out on that. It’s not like they don’t already have literally thousands of user-made watch faces at their disposal, but hey, it’s always nice to get the official ones too!

Either way, if you own a Gear S3 or an S2, you won’t …
