Samsung’s IFA 2016 invite is unambiguously about the Gear S3

Samsung’s IFA 2016 invite is unambiguously about the Gear S3

Unless Samsung has a surprise high profile smartphone in the works for IFA 2016, which would make it perhaps this year's best kept secret, the manufacturer's spotlight in Berlin next month will be trained on the Gear S3. That definitely seems to be the hint that Samsung has dropped in its invitation to its IFA 2016 press event. While there are no words to indicate it, the clock hands pretty much tell the story, without telling anything nor everything. And considering Samsung has no other notable smartwatch to speak of, it's definitely going to be the Gear S3.

Note 7 Nougat update in 2-3 months says Samsung (but don’t hold your breath)

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 will launch running Marshmallow, but the Korean firm expects to have Android 7.0 Nougat ready in just a couple of months, not that it'll likely help US users.

Samsung Galaxy On5, On7 2016 editions grace China’s TENAA

Samsung Galaxy On5, On7 2016 editions grace China’s TENAA

The Galaxy On has always been an odd series. It came at a time when Samsung was consolidating, and somewhat reducing, its mobile model names to single letters followed by numbers. And, in that grand scheme of things, the Galaxy On's special appeal isn't as clear cut as a J, A, or even E model. Still, Samsung, being Samsung, is even going to put out successors to last year's models, with the Galaxy On5 (2016) and Galaxy On7 (2016) both stopping by TENAA for a photo shoot and a spec spill.
