• Samsung Suddenly Reveal the New Video about Galaxy 8

    Posted on January 16th, 2017 Echo Brown | 364 comments

    As we all know, the Galaxy S8 will launch soon this year, but until this week’s leaked images explosion Samsung had done a good job keeping its new flagship smartphone secret. Now, however, it appears the company wants to leak the phone itself. Samsung revealed a new video which introduced the Galaxy 8.

    In a pair of new promotional videos for display division, Samsung has shown off new AMOLED panels which are widely expected to be used in the Galaxy S8. But more than this, it ends both commercials by showing the panels morph into an unnamed smartphone with very slim top and bottom bezels.

    Yes, there remains a chance that this is complete coincidence and Samsung made a random handset that just so happens to look like a trio of leaks which all also just so happen to be identical yet wrong. But the odds against this seem small.

    We won’t have to wait long to find out the official details and if Samsung avoids one potentially suicidal decision, then it won’t only be LG that needs to worry as even Apple’s radical 2017 iPhone redesign will be under pressure…

  • Samsung Is Focusing on the S8 After Galaxy Note 7 Disaster

    Posted on October 27th, 2016 Yuson Zou | 637 comments

    Samsung is now starting to research and develop its next flagship phone S8 despite the fact that the Korean electronic giant still has no idea what caused some of its Galaxy Note 7 phone batteries to explode. According to Lee Jae-yong, vice chairman and board member at Samsung, who’s also the apparent heir to the company, next year’s Galaxy S8 will come with a “slick design and an improved camera.” It’ll also have better artificial intelligence, Lee said. That all sounds about right for a new phone.

    Samsung acquired the creators of Siri, Viv Labs, earlier this year, so it would make sense for the company to improve its voice assistant. Lee didn’t confirm to the public whether it would be including Viv’s technology in the S8. Given that both Apple and Google market their assistants as a reason to buy their phones, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Samsung at least tried to fit AI into its larger pitch. But are a better camera, AI, and design enough to win back trust?

    Samsung’s Note 7 recall cost the company more than $5 billion, and it’s unclear whether the large amount of negative press will have a lasting effect on sales.

    Samsung not only issued a recall, but also had to send customers fireproof return boxes. That’s not a good look. The FAA banned the devices on flights and continues to announce that they’re not allowed during the boarding process. It’s a federal crime to bring one aboard. Samsung has serious image reworking to do, so let’s hope the company debuts something really impressive in 2017.

  • Smasung Offcially Recall Galaxy Note 7 Due to Battery Issues

    Posted on September 7th, 2016 Echo Brown | 896 comments

    Samsung launched and released the Galaxy Note 7 in August this year. Just like its predecessors, the Galaxy Note 7 was highly anticipated in the smartphone space. However, 35 customers have reported that the battery of the new Samsung phablet has exploded or caught fire while charging. According to Samsung, it has received 30-40 reports of Note 7 devices catching fire while charging. Out of the millions that were sold, that’s not very many phones. The odds of the phone actually catching fire are minuscule, but it’s still enough of a problem that you should take action.

    All we know about the cause is that some of the batteries used in the Note 7 are at fault. Some owners may have also been using sketchy third-party charging cables, though this still shouldn’t make a battery explode. Not all phones are affected, but Samsung has not released any guidelines on which serial numbers are bad. Perhaps the company doesn’t know, or it may not be possible to track down all the bad batches. The bottom line — if you have a Note 7, it’s part of the recall.

    Samsung is running the recall on its own in cooperation with carrier partners. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is not involved, which makes the process a little murky. If you bought your phone from a carrier, you can call or go into a store to return it without incurring any fees. If you purchased directly from Samsung, call the help number listed on the recall page.

    It is not clear what will become of phones that were resold or imported. Because Samsung is doing all this proactively without the CPSC, there aren’t any rules about how to handle this. That makes buying the Note 7 from third-parties problematic. No official retail channels are still selling the Note 7 right now. More stock with new batteries will begin showing up this week, which is what Samsung will use to replace defective Note 7s. Some carriers are also offering the option of swapping for a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge and getting a refund for the difference. If you see a Note 7 for sale on eBay or other reselling sites, don’t buy it. There’s no guarantee you’ll be able to swap it yourself and it’s guaranteed to be one of the recalled phones right now.

    Although Samsung has not confirmed the cost of the recall, estimates compiled by Bloomberg from Credit Suisse Group AG, Daishin Securities Co. and Pelham Smithers Associates suggest that the battery snafu with the Galaxy Note 7 may have cost the company about $1 billion.

  • Samsung to Shut Down Milk Music in September

    Posted on August 22nd, 2016 Yuson Zou | 73 comments

    Samsung, the Korean smartphone manufacturer, has officially announced that the company is going to halt its streaming radio service Milk Music, which means Samsung users will have to look for a music alternative for them to listen to music. According to Variety, Samsung will be shutting down Milk Music on September 22nd, urging its Galaxy and Note smartphone users to switch over to Slacker Radio.

    Samsung-milk

    The elimination of the service has been rumored for several months, with reports that the company was going to shutter the service because it had failed to gain traction with users.

    Samsung said in a statement that Milk is being closed down “invest in a partner model focused on seamlessly integrating the best music services available today into our family of Galaxy devices.” Samsung launched the music streaming service to much fanfare in 2014 as an alternative to ad-supported services such as Spotify and Pandora. Later that year, it launched a video service called Milk Video. That system lasted only a year before it was closed. It’s not clear what Samsung’s plans are to replace the service, other than to direct users to Slacker, an ad-supported music streaming service.

    After Milk Music is shut down, Samsung users can switch to other online streaming music provider such as Spotify, Pandora, Last.fm, etc. During the time of experiencing those online music, an online music recorder can be used to record online music if necessary.

  • Samsung to Launch the Newest Smartwatch Gear S3 on August 31

    Posted on August 17th, 2016 Echo Brown | 825 comments

    Samsung will introduce another smartwatch this month. The Korea-based giant teased a launch event at the IFA electronics show in Germany, the date to watch for is August 31 and, as the invite above rather heavy-handedly hints, this will be the Gear S3.

    Smartwatch sales reportedly dipped by one-third this year, according to analyst estimates. Samsung was one of a number of firms to hold or improve its numbers — Apple’s estimated sales cratered — and it is back with a new offering in an effort to increase interest, notably right before Apple is predicted to refresh its own smartwatch range in September.

    The Gear S2, Samsung’s most recent smartwatch, launched in September 2015 at the very same show. The company’s early watch models struggled for acclaim, but we found the Gear S2 to be surprisingly good, with an attractive interface and well-designed spinning bezel. That leaves us and doubtless others intrigued by what Samsung has planned next.

    What hints can we glean from the Gear S2? Well, the year-old device is available in two options — as the Samsung Gear S2 3G or the Gear S2 Classic — and Samsung later expanded the watch options to include Apple-esque gold and silver editions. There’s speculation that Samsung will go further and out three versions of the Gear S3 this time around, including an ‘explorer’ edition that could feature a crown, more buttons and changeable watch bands.

    Either way, there’s not long to wait to find out for sure. Like other Samsung unveilings, the Gear S3 launch event will be streamed online so you can watch at your own convenience.

The invitation card shows that this event will focus on Samsung’s Galaxy and ATIV brands.

    Although exactly what will be on the agenda this time around is still unclear, there are still rumors revealing what Samsung is going to show at the event.

  • Samsung Confirmed to Release Galaxy Note 3 during IFA 2013 in September

    Posted on May 20th, 2013 David Brooks | 50 comments

    The rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 have been flooding the internet. The latest report from Poland Smartfan website leaked several images of the rumored Galaxy Note 3. According to the EXIF information from the leaked images, this new smartphone is codenamed GT-N7200. The Galaxy Note 2 was codenamed GT-N7100, which adds more credit that the new smartphone is most probably the Galaxy Note 3. The hardware version of this new smartphone is N7200XXUAMEB.

    Galaxy Note 3

    Based upon the leaked images and the resolution of the leaked images, the Galaxy Note 3 would come with a built-in 13MP camera with f/2.2 lens aperture. The camera configuration suites the previous report a lot, which rumored the Galaxy Note 3 would get the same camera as that of Samsung Galaxy S 4.

    As for the detailed specs of Samsung Galaxy S 4, it is reported that this crossing-boundary new flagship would get a 5.9″ OLED touchscreen. The screen resolution of Galaxy Note 3 would reach up to FHD level (1920×1080 pixels), which makes it a great choice to watch HD movies on Samsung Galaxy Note 3. The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could adopt Android 4.2.2 or even Android 4.3 OS, with brand-new TouchWiz Nature UX 2.0 operation-interface and probably currently the biggest RAM storage of up to 3GB. The processor is 8-core Exynos 5 Octa processor, while the graphics processing chipset is rumored to 8-core Mali 450GPU.

    Galaxy Note 3

    It is worthy of mentioning that the new Galaxy Note 3 would not get metal case, but plastic body case just like that of Samsung Galaxy S 4. According to previous reports which suggested that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 get three prototypes: the first one is with the same appearance as that of Samsung Galaxy S 4, the second prototype is to adopt totally different design, while the third one is to make use of flexible touchscreen. Obviously, Samsung seems to take the first prototype, which might makes the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 more like an enlarged version of Galaxy S 4.

    For people who care for the official release date of Galaxy Note 3, the latest news from Korea Times could be exciting, which revealed that Samsung has officially announced to release Galaxy Note 3 during IFA 2013, which is from September 6th to September 11th.
