Samsung recently launched the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ in India. The smartphones resemble the Galaxy S8‘s design with a new camera setup with variable aperture. After launching its flagship series, the company is updating its older portfolio with the newer version of Android OS. Samsung follows the two-letter OS upgrade for its flagship smartphones. The Galaxy S8 was released with Android Nougat and the device has received an update for Android Oreo.
According to an official document found on Samsung’s website, the company is planning to upgrade at least 6 devices, which have completed the two year’s OS cycle. However, unlike the S8 or the S7, these [...]
Samsung has launched its new flagship devices, the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Both the smartphones are available for pre-order in India and will go on sale from the 16th of March. However, the price of the smartphones has not been revealed yet. That is expected to happen on the 4th of March. Samsung won’t be selling the 128GB storage variant in India, only the 64GB and 256GB variant will be available.
The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will carry a premium price tag for sure, and go up against the likes of the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus and even Galaxy Note8. However, flagship specifications no longer come at a premium price tag. Android smartphones like the OnePlus 5T and Mi Mix 2 offer top of [...]
A new report claim that the Samsung Galaxy Note9 will be the first-ever Samsung phone to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. For weeks leading up to the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note8, there were speculations that it would have an in-display fingerprint sensor. The Galaxy Note8 was launched in August 2017 and by then, screen embedded fingerprint sensors were found in concept phones only.
However, since the launch of the Galaxy Note8, this technology has come a long way and is finally consumer-ready. Vivo recently launched the Vivo X20 Plus UD in China, becoming the first ever smartphone to feature the new Clear ID technology. For Samsung to implement this [...]
Smartphones are slowly but surely moving towards a completely bezel-less era. With every passing generation, the smartphones become sleeker. We even have a screen-embedded fingerprint sensor now, for people who want a bezel-less design but, also a front-facing fingerprint sensor. But, are bezels just an unnecessary extension or do they hold any importance?
With the technology we possess right now, bezels are important. As much as we would like an all-screen no-bezel phone, it seems highly impractical as of now. Apart from a display, the front of the device also houses a camera, sensors and the earpiece as well. Right now, there [...]
The Samsung Galaxy Note8 was launched in India in late-August at a price of Rs. 67999. It was the first smartphone from Samsung to feature a dual-camera setup on the back and until the Galaxy S9+ is launched, it remains the sole device from Samsung to have that feature. For all its great specifications, display, and a beautiful design, the Galaxy Note8 had a very noticeable flaw which had carried on from the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the fingerprint sensor’s placement. While a lot of quirky moves from big smartphone makers turn out to be iconic, this placement was not appreciated and Samsung has already rectified it with the Samsung Galaxy A8+.
However, it appears that [...]
Samsung has unveiled a swanky new variant of the Galaxy Note8 which you may never be able to get your hands on. The 2018 Winter Olympics will take place in PyeongChang, South Korea from the 9th of February to February 25th. Samsung, as one of the main sponsors of the Games, will give more than 4000 personalised Galaxy Note8 devices to athletes and IOC staff. These personalised Note8 devices are called the Samsung Galaxy Note8 PyeongChang 2018 Edition.
The new smartphone variant has a shiny white back panel with the iconic golden five-ring Olympics logo. The Galaxy Note8 PyeongChang [...]
When the Samsung Galaxy Note7 was recalled due to serious battery issues, many thought that the ‘Note’ lineup would be scrapped due to the amount of bad press it had attracted. However, in August of 2017, the South Korean tech giant launched the Galaxy Note8. The device had everything, from a great camera to the excellent S Pen integration. It seemed like the days of ‘BatteryGate’ have been left behind by the company.
However, over the past few days, Samsung’s help forum has various posts about user’s Galaxy Note8 not charging. The issue seems to occur after the phone battery is fully drained to 0% and shuts down. When users try to [...]
As smartphones get thinner, manufacturers usually resort to reducing battery sizes in order to maintain the thickness-to-tech inside ratio. The good news is that the chipsets are getting better at power management and fast charging is really good. Even wireless fast charging is catching up these days and almost every flagship phone now has a USB Type C port.
Recently, OnePlus conceded that the company’s own Dash Charging technology is much better than the wireless technology which is available in the market hence, the OnePlus 5T shipped without wireless charging capabilities. So, how good is Dash Charging, then? Apparently, it’s the best in the market and a test [...]
