Beastly performance: The Snapdragon 835-powered Nokia 9 might get a variant with 8GB of RAM

Nokia 9, the supposed flagship which HMD Global is said to unveil later this year, has been the subject of a few major leaks over the last few days. 
First, a French online publication posted images of what appears to be a prototype unit of the Nokia 9. The device was enclosed in a special “black box” which deliberately prevented curious eyes from getting a complete look at the phone’s design features. However, one of the leaked pictures contained the handset’s codename – “Unknown Heart” – alongside information that it sports a Qualcomm …

Results: no flat screen variant of the Galaxy S8. What do you think about that?

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are out and looking pretty. Super-slim bezels, glass-on-metal build, all the bells and whistles you’d expect from Samsung. This year around, the company put all of its eggs in the “edge” basket and produced both phones with curved screens — there is no “regular” flat screen shape for the Galaxy S8.

Unfortunately, this means that you can’t go for a “cheaper” version of the new Sammy phones — prices usually start from $750 for the regular S8, while last year’s Galaxy S7 had a $650 price-tag. But money aside, fact is that some people just want a flat display …

Samsung ramps up production for the Galaxy S8+, retailers more interested in the larger flagship variant

According to a new report from South Korea, Samsung has decided to ramp up production for the Galaxy S8+ due to retailers showing higher initial interest in the 6.2-inch variant of the flagship.

As such, Samsung has increased the production ratio of the Galaxy S8+ to 45% of total output, which is a 5% increase compared to the 40% it enjoyed in mid-March. Also, a further increase is likely to follow before the device hits the shelves on April 21st.

This means that Samsung could start producing the S8 and S8+ at an equal rate around launch date. Compared to …

So, there's no flat screen variant of the Galaxy S8. What do you think about that?

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are out and they are as pretty as expected! Shiny and futuristic, the phones sport edge screens and minimal bezels around them. Yes, we said “phones” in plural — while for the past 3 years, going back to the Note 4 and Note Edge, Samsung has always given us the option to get an “ordinary”, flat screen model, or shell out an extra $100 for a dual-curved edge display, the option is now gone.

Unfortunately, this means that you can’t go for a “cheaper” version of the new Sammy phones — prices usually start from $750 for the regular S8, while last year’s Galaxy …

The new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge Blue Coral will be available via all major mobile carriers in South Korea. Meanwhile, a report claims that the Galaxy S7 Edge Blue Coral will go on sale in the US from November 18, though there’s no word on its India availability so far.

 Samsung had previously confirmed that the Galaxy S7 Edge Blue Coral will be available in selected markets. In addition to Blue Coral, the Galaxy S7 Edge is already available in Black Onyx, Gold Platinum, White Pearl, Silver Titanium, and Pink Gold colours.

The South Korean giant recently launched Android 7.0 Galaxy Beta Program for Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. We expect the Android Nougat update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge to roll out soon.

Apart from Galaxy S7 Edge Blue Coral, Samsung has also launched Gear S3 smartwatch in South Korea. As announced earlier, the Gear S3 will be rolled out to additional markets including Australia, Dubai, France, Germany, Singapore, UK, and US starting November 18.

Singapore to get the LTE variant of Samsung Galaxy Note II

Everybody is eagerly waiting for the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the Samsung Galaxy S III.
However, as far as its launch in Singapore is concerned, Samsung may only be releasing the LTE variant of its Galaxy Note II, if the entry as per the IDA Equipment Search List turns out to be accurate. Singapore will most probably get a handset, which most of the world does not have received yet, and that the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean enabled Samsung Galaxy S III LTE handset. It is expected that the Korean tech giant, Samsung Electronics, will unveil this beautiful device till the September end. One of the most exciting about this handset introduction in Singapore is that the smartphone will be having a quad core Exynos processor, as against the dual core Snapdragon S4 chip. Moreover, the handset will also be having an entire 2GBs of RAM. Singaporean consumers will have to shell out S$ 998 ($ 801.86 USD) to get this new handset.

The news for Singapore people are not over yet. Singaporean owners of the Galaxy S III device will be delighted to know that they will get the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update in the near future, and most probably, nearly the same time when the Samsung Galaxy S III 4G LTE launches. According to Samsung, the Singapore variant is not the same edition as the US variant. The US variant uses a dual-core S4 Qualcomm chip. Rather than this, the Singapore variant will probably be the quad-core model that is similar to South Korea’s variant; however, you will probably not get this fancy antenna. Although, having a quad core processor together with another gig of RAM is fabulous, however, at the same time, numerous people got in a contract for the Samsung Galaxy S III handset. Therefore, the upgrading may prove to be quite a tedious process. This will not be liked by those people, who have paid full price for the entire handset.

A quick search on IDA website provides information that the Samsung Galaxy Note II GT-N7105 is waiting for certification by IDA. According to its description, the handset is described as such a GSM/3G/LTE mobile phone that have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. A similar search for the Galaxy S III will show two models, which are GT-I9300 (3G) and GT-I9305 (LTE). As the name convention for the different models suggests, it is very likely that N7105 refers to the LTE variant of the Galaxy Note II.
