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 …


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 …

Alexa loses her voice in Amazon's Super Bowl ad teaser

What would be the worst thing that could happen to Amazon founder/Chairman/CEO Jeff Bezos? Besides Amazon’s shares crashing down to single digits, that is. Well, Amazon’s virtual personal assistant Alexa could lose her voice. And that is what happens in a teaser video that Amazon has posted for its Super Bowl ad. The teaser opens with a woman brushing her teeth in the bathroom, casually asking her Echo what the weather is like in Austin, Texas.

What we do know is that the forthcoming device will feature a single lens camera, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a bezel-less display. The latter appears in a brand new teaser tweeted by HTC earlier today.
