Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7.0 leaked, no S Pen in sight

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7.0 leaked, no S Pen in sight

Samsung has more or less consolidated its Android tablets along specific lines. The Galaxy Tab A was, more or less, designed with productivity in mind, with a model that even had an S Pen stylus. It has been a while since Samsung expanded that line but it might soon do so. A small leak has revealed that a 7.0-inch variant might be coming soon. Unsurprisingly named the Galaxy Tab A 7.0, this tablet still bears the hallmarks of a mid-range slate. This time, however, it seems that there might not be an S Pen hiding inside.

Samsung itself leaks Galaxy S7 vid, shows waterproof feat

While companies would prefer to keep a tight lid over their upcoming products, the memo doesn't always reach the farthest offices. And, of course, we always have to take into account human frailty. While it's still a good few days before Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy S7, its Indonesian outfit might have jumped the gun just a bit. Granted, a landing page for the device that doesn't reveal much isn't exactly earth-shattering, but that website does come with a full blown video, showcasing some of the features the Galaxy S7 might have.

The next great smartphone isn’t a phone at all

The next great smartphone isn’t a phone at all

When Apple created the world's most popular smartphone, they made it basic. It took what the personal computer was and took out all the work. Android opened the doors to a much more complex system, allowing both simple and complicated phones to be made. Google expanded beyond smartphones to all manner of devices, large and small, content creator to content consumer. The next game-changer is both. Two devices. One experience. Just like the simultaneous rise of the video camera and the movie screens on which their content was shown.

Samsung Galaxy Note 6 said to have 6GB RAM, 5.8-inch screen

Given how the Samsung Galaxy S7 has practically been leaked to death and how near we are to its unveiling, it is perhaps time to start warming up the rumor mill for things still far, far away. For example, perhaps it's time to speculate on the Galaxy Note 6, which is still a good half year away. According to this premature rumor, the S Pen powered phablet will actually increase in size, both in display with a 5.8-inch screen, as well as in RAM, with a whopping 6 GB.

Possible Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 sighted, might debut at MWC 2016

Possible Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 sighted, might debut at MWC 2016

Unlike with the first Galaxy Tab S, Samsung hasn't been marketing the Galaxy Tab S2 as much, which is strange considering the line is supposedly its flagship Android tablet family. Perhaps its due to a worldwide somewhat negative attitude towards tablets in general. So it is somewhat not a surprise that a Galaxy Tab S3 isn't making a big splash in Samsung's rumor mill either. It might have even entered our radars if not for a sighting, coupled with some deduction, on GFXBench, hinting at its existence.

Don’t make this Virtual Reality mistake

You know what really grinds my gears? Ridiculous photos that are used to advertise products. You know the ones, where something has been very obviously been Photoshopped in with little care. Today, the PGA Tour has been kind enough to provide me with an "Exhibit A" for talking about why you need to think about photos used to promote your products.
