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 S7 unlocked in the USA: released at last

The tide has turned. Samsung has released the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge in the United States unlocked and free of carrier bloatware. Both devices are coming with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and the same 12-megapixel camera they had when you already purchased the device through a carrier. Samsung Pay still works, wireless charging and fast charging with the charger they come with. And what's that? Yes, it's true: they support all bands. All of them.

Verizon, Samsung 4G extender puts a mini cell tower in homes

Verizon, Samsung 4G extender puts a mini cell tower in homes

No matter how strong your 4G LTE connection is, there will come a time, or a place, where the signal degrades to near uselessness. Sometimes, those times and places are found inside our very own homes, where structures and materials hinder the spread of cellular signals throughout the building. Making sure its customers won't be bereft of that much needed Internet connection, Verizon has teamed up again with Samsung to launch a 4G LTE Network Extender that practically gives homes and offices a mini LTE tower of their own.

Samsung Smart Glow to be more than just about notifications

Samsung Smart Glow to be more than just about notifications

A few weeks ago, Samsung was revealed to have a rather curious new feature intended for the most unlikely of models: the Smart Glow "ring" for the Galaxy J2 2016. Although neither the smartphone nor the feature have made their actual debut yet, there is already some information floating around that the Smart Glow won't be limited to simple notifications in the future and could very well be as extensible, or at least customizable, as Samsung's Edge panels on the company's curved edge smartphones.

The Galaxy Note 7 details Samsung’s Secret Weapon

While it's not been too much of a massive secret thus far, Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 does indeed have a few cards up its sleeve that haven't yet been revealed in full. As Samsung aims to take full advantage of the lull in major innovation reveals the iPhone has set for them this year, they're pulling out all the stops. What better way to grab your attention than by scanning your eyeballs?

Galaxy Note 7 now tipped to have 3,600 mAh battery only

Galaxy Note 7 now tipped to have 3,600 mAh battery only

One of the missteps that Samsung made with the Galaxy S6 was to take away the removable battery, which was exacerbated by the fact that it had a rather modest 2,550 mAh battery. The OEM partly corrected that with the Galaxy S7 by giving it a still non-removable but bigger 3,000 mAh pack. Samsung might be dragged again into the battery debate with the Galaxy Note 7 (or Note 6) now that the latest word is that it will have a 3,600 mAh battery instead of the earlier leaked and hoped for 4,000 mAh.

Galaxy S5 Neo Marshmallow updates spotted across Europe

Galaxy S5 Neo Marshmallow updates spotted across Europe

Good news for those of you rocking a Galaxy S5 Neo: it would appear that Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is being pushed to the device across Europe. Rumors at the end of last year suggested such an update would eventually arrive on the Galaxy S5 Neo, but we didn't have a solid ETA outside of rather vague claims of a Q1 2016 roll out. We're a little past Q1 at this point, but hey, better late than never, right?

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

Galaxy Note 7 specs leak from China

The next Samsung smartphone with an S Pen has appeared in a new set of specs leaked from microblogger "I Ice". This new set of specifications seems to confirm several of the more important details we'd been told in the past, like a 5.7-inch display with Super AMOLED technology. That same display is tipped to have 2K resolution (that's 2560 x 1800, like the Galaxy Note 5), and will come in two iterations - one with an Edge, one without.

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.

Olympics-themed Galaxy S7 Edge on the way from Samsung

Special themed-editions of Samsung's flagship Galaxy smartphones have become a fairly common thing in the last few years; we've just seen the new Batman "Injustice Edition" of the Galaxy S7 Edge, and last year there was an Iron Man version of the Galaxy S6 Edge. It seems the next special edition from the Korean manufacturer is for the upcoming 2016 Summer Olympics.
