Samsung brings out its first FreeSync-enabled UHD monitors

Samsung brings out its first FreeSync-enabled UHD monitors

It was a promise half a year in the making. Samsung has finally launched its first line of Ultra HD monitors that aim to cater to gamers more than any of its screen lineup. While the 24-inch U24E590D and the 28-inch U28E590D do not flaunt curves like Samsung is wont to do, they do have one advantage over regular monitors, curved or not. Aside from an Ultra HD resolution, these two displays are the first of Samsung's monitors to carry within them AMD's FreeSync technology.

Galaxy A8 might be Samsung’s thinnest yet, hits TENAA, FCC

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge might have taken most of the spotlight when it comes to Samsung's roster, but that doesn't mean those are the only interesting ones in its lineup. The Galaxy A series launched last year to bring a semblance of premium, non-plastic design to a mid-range market, which did indeed make a few heads turn. Now the latest addition to that family might again be notable. The Galaxy A8, spotted in TENAA and the FCC could very well be Samsung's thinnest smartphone.

This morning the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus was revealed to the press by a leakster.

What we're about to do here is take this leak apart with Photoshop and math, piece by piece.

Samsung Galaxy J5, Galaxy J7 tout front-facing LED flash

Yes, this is a selfie generation. If you're still not convinced, or are still in denial, just look at the number of features and gimmicks that even smartphone makers employ to appeal to this crowd. While the new mid-range Samsung Galaxy J5 and Galaxy J7 smartphones, now official in China, do not have the crazy rotating camera of an OPPO or the large sensor size of an HTC, they do have something very few have: a front-facing LED flash to illumine even the darkest of selfies.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active Review

Samsung Galaxy S6 Active Review

Today we review the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active from AT&T. This device takes the innards of the Galaxy S6, expanding the exterior bits to make a device that's resistant to the elements as well as shock. You can drop this one. While the original Galaxy "Active" device wasn't quite as resistant to the one truest danger of all, dropping the darned thing, here we've been given a reprieve. And a good sign for the future. This device has everything the Galaxy S6 has, and more - a bigger battery too.

Samung P3 external drive: 4TB without the power cord

Data storage is definitely undergoing a big change, from the UFS 2.0 that trumps eMMCs in mobile devices, to the 10 TB hard drive, to the crazy expensive 512 GB microSD card, to this new 4TB portable external hard drive from from Samsung. Although that storage size isn't exactly new as far as hard drives or even SSDs are concerned, this is probably the first time that such a large capacity would come in such a small package. Measuring only 19.85 mm (0.78 in) in height, the Samsung P3 also touts ultimate portability by throwing away the power cable.

SwiftKey hack can remotely take over Samsung mobile devices

SwiftKey hack can remotely take over Samsung mobile devices

Android users on Samsung mobile devices could be vulnerable to a new type of security hack. The security flaw was discovered by Ryan Welton from NowSecure. He detailed his findings at the Blackhat Security Summit in London. The hackable exploit arises from the pre-installed SwiftKey keyboard. As Swiftkey searches for updates to its language packs over unencrypted lines, via plain text, it is susceptible to malicious security apps from any spoofed proxy server. Using this as a keyhole, Welton could scale up the attack to basically take over a vulnerable mobile device while the user remains unaware. The bug affects over 600 million Samsung users, including those using the Galaxy S6.
