Galaxy S7 recall: not a Note thing to worry about

Galaxy S7 recall: not a Note thing to worry about

It's come to our attention that thousands of Samsung Galaxy S7 users have begun searching for details on their own device's recall. In reality, Samsung has issued no such recall for the Galaxy S7. It's the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 that's been recalled, while the Galaxy S7 (a completely different device) has had no issues as such. The trending of this topic is just the latest in a series of unfortunate events that've created what's essentially a perfect storm of negative publicity for the brand.

Galaxy Note 7 recall update: Do I have an exploding phone?

Galaxy Note 7 recall update: Do I have an exploding phone?

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 users that purchased their phone earlier than last week and haven't exchanged them for a new unit: yes, this is an "exploding phone." One of the top search terms at Google over the past week related to the Galaxy Note 7 has been "exploding" edged out just a bit by the word "recall". Today Samsung made it clear where Galaxy Note 7 owners should go to participate in a recall, and how they'll know if their device is, indeed, a new model.

Galaxy Note 7 banned from flights on Qantas, Jeststar, and Virgin Australia

Galaxy Note 7 banned from flights on Qantas, Jeststar, and Virgin Australia

Samsung is facing a very large recall with about three dozen of its Galaxy Note 7 flagship devices having caught fire while charging due to faulty batteries. This has left Samsung to a recall that is expected to cost the company and the battery supplier in the area of $1 billion to make right. With the risk of fire from these devices, word came down this week that the FAA might ban the device from being carried on airplanes in the US. Airlines in Australia were even faster with banning Samsung's phablet from certain use scenarios during flights.

This iPhone 7 feature detail releases from Galaxy Note bonds

This iPhone 7 feature detail releases from Galaxy Note bonds

A new sort of home button for the iPhone 7 could be just the feature boost the company needs to bridge the gap between 2016 and the 10-year anniversary of the device. We've thus far been told by tipsters that very little would change between the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 7 - a slightly better camera, perhaps another color metal made available, a different arrangement of antenna lines. What's the big deal, users might wonder, isn't this supposed to be a "tic" year in Apple's trend of "tic tock tic tock?" Perhaps it still is, but next year could be a tic too.

Galaxy Note 7 release date soon, four color photos appear

Galaxy Note 7 release date soon, four color photos appear

It's not quite time for the Galaxy Note 7 from Samsung to arrive on our doorstep, but we've been given another glimpse. Today we're seeing another vision of the device - not another version, but another view - this time straight on with a sticker on top. This is one of several devices that appear to be part of a testing group in Asia, where users seem to have no fear of leaking said material before the actual reveal and launch this August - more than likely. Today's views are also a lot clearer than yesterday's back in black collection of images.

Galaxy Note 7 part leak confirms Samsung’s secret weapon

Galaxy Note 7 part leak confirms Samsung’s secret weapon

The front panel of the Galaxy Note 7 has leaked in a single photo which confirms several details about the upcoming handset. This device is coming in black - we could have guessed that bit. This device also has a physical home button, as all Galaxy devices have since the beginning. The feature inclusion we'd known from insider sources previously and can confirm further today is in the array of circles near the top of the device's front here.

Galaxy Note 7 details hinted at in Samsung software update

Galaxy Note 7 details hinted at in Samsung software update

The Galaxy Note 5 has received an update (so to speak) which gives a Beta glimpse at the future of the next device in line. That's the Galaxy Note 7, we're to understand, bypassing the name of the device that'd more sensibly come there since each successive Galaxy Note has had a number which comes after the last. Now we're matching up with the Galaxy S series, which is also at 7. This update we're speaking of is a Beta release of a user interface update to the Galaxy Note series, giving us hints as to the functionality of the Note 7 in the process.

Galaxy Note7 leaked logos imply curved and flat models

Galaxy Note7 leaked logos imply curved and flat models

Reading rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 7, or Galaxy Note 6, or Galaxy Note7, is like watching a tennis match. The continuous back and forth tips and leaks from sources will leave you undecided whether it will be a flat version only or a curved edge version only. Based on this latest leak of the smartphone's logos, apparently there will be both. Perhaps Samsung itself couldn't make up its mind which version the market will really root for, so it's just going to stick to its tried and true method of throwing in both and seeing which one survives.

First Galaxy Note 6 detail spilled by Samsung

First Galaxy Note 6 detail spilled by Samsung

In what must be the smallest detail leak in the history of Samsung that remains significant to super-fans, the Galaxy Note 6 has been named. Named on Samsung's Agent (AA) Profile page, that is. In comes SM-N930F, the "F" version of what's certainly the next smartphone in the Note series. It goes like this: Galaxy Note 4 is SM-N910, Note 5 is SM-N920, and we can safely assume that the Note 6 (or Note 7, as it may be called), is SM-N930.

The first official mention of the next Galaxy Note smartphone has happened in an odd way on the official Samsung website. The link in the source opens to reveal what appears to be a basic XML info, showing a document tree with no real information to be found in it except the model number SM-N930F.

There may be no “flat” Galaxy Note 6

There may be no “flat” Galaxy Note 6

While the Galaxy Note 6 may be coming with an "Edge" version right out the gate, it's possible that no flat version will come at all. NOTE: Before we go any further, make certain you understand that we're working with pre-official information here, not confirmed data from Samsung. What we're to understand as of this week is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 - likely coming with the name Galaxy Note 7 (skipping the "6" to match the Galaxy S line releases), will come with a curved-edge display. And that there may be no traditional release.

Galaxy Note 7 mass production starts next month says source

An industry source is claiming that Samsung will begin mass production of the much rumored Galaxy Note 7 starting next month. This same source claims that Samsung plans to build about 5 million units for its initial launch with the devices completed by August. That August complete date for the initial supply of smartphones would fit in well with the rumor from earlier this week that the Galaxy Note 7 will launch August 2.
