Samsung protects your kids’ eyes with Safety Screen app

Samsung protects your kids’ eyes with Safety Screen app

When I was a kid, I wanted to sit as close as I could to the TV, especially while playing video games. I think that I equated being closer to the screen to being better at the game. Of course, I also had a bad habit of leaning to the left or right, when I wanted my character to quickly move the same direction, which didn't help, either. When my parents would catch me sitting to close to the screen, they would always tell me to move back. But what about now, when kids are holding their tablets too close to their face?

Samsung Xcover 3 variant comes with Android 6.0 out of the box

Samsung Xcover 3 variant comes with Android 6.0 out of the box

Remember Samsung's Xcover smartphone? No? We can't blame you. The Xcover was originally conceived as a special line that boasted of rugged properties but that has mostly been supplanted by "active" variants of Samsung's flagships and even by the flagships themselves, as in the case of the Galaxy S5 and now the Galaxy S7. Still, there's something to be said for affordable, rugged smartphones, which is probably why Samsung is going with an Xcover 3 Value Edition, which adds nothing new except Android 6.0 Marshmallow right off the bat.

iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

iPhone 7 may be Apple’s biggest launch ever with Samsung’s OLED display

Reports this week suggest that Apple's next big iPhone launch won't only be a big event because it's a "tick" year in their "tick-tock" schedule - it'll be big because of their Samsung connection. It's not unheard of for Apple to use Samsung parts in their smartphones - they've been doing it since the very beginning. What is unheard of thus far is Apple's use of an OLED display panel from Samsung on any one of their devices. With the use of an OLED panel, the iPhone will be brighter and more intense than ever before.

Galaxy Note 6 seen on CPU-Z with 5.8-inch screen, 6GB RAM

While Apple has seemingly taken a break from its phone size expansion, Samsung is showing no signs of stopping. At least not for its Galaxy Note series and not according to leaks and sources. A screenshot of the benchmarking CPU-Z hints that the Galaxy Note 6, expected to debut sometime in September, will not only be larger, though ever so slightly, than its predecessor but will also have more RAM to boot. It might also be larger in other places too, even in its overall design.

Samsung Galaxy C line to sport mid-range specs in metal bodies

Samsung Galaxy C line to sport mid-range specs in metal bodies

The age of cheap all-plastic smartphones might finally be over. At least as far as Samsung is concerned. While its entry level Galaxy J series might still bear the cost-friendly material, it also has traces of metal to flaunt. In contrast, the Korean manufacturer's upcoming Galaxy C family will supposedly be all metal. But it won't only be the outside that will be premium. While not flagship-level, the Galaxy C5, which is supposedly the first of its kind, will have decent mid-range specs to boast about.

Why an OLED iPhone would be so important

Why an OLED iPhone would be so important

In the run-up to the big iPhone 7 reveal later this year, Apple is said to be working on an even more fundamental change to its best-selling smartphone. Though the Cupertino company has used LCD screens for its handsets since the first iPhone in 2007 - and is expected to continue to do so for the iPhone 7 - that could all change come next year, as the lure of OLED finally tips Retina display into the opposing camp.

Galaxy Note 6 model number leak hints at European launch

Samsung fans in Europe have not always been able to get their hands on the Galaxy Note phablet when new models launch. Samsung didn’t offer the Galaxy Note 5 in Europe as a way to push more buyers towards the Galaxy S6 edge+ smartphone. That move certainly made some European Galaxy Note smartphone fans angry.

Samsung launches 2016 lineup of 4K SUHD Smart TVs

Reports on Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge flagship smartphones are quite positive and perhaps the Korean OEM is hoping some of that good fortune would also rub off on its TV sets, yet another ailing market. Announced last month, Samsung's roster of SUHD TV sets are now ready to take the market by storm. Boasting Quantum Display technology and barely existing bezels, these TVs, both curved and flat, not only try to offer a stunning design to fit your leaving room but all the conveniences that smart technologies can offer as well.

Refreshed Galaxy Tab S2 spotted, still no Galaxy Tab S3 in sight

Samsung just recently launched the hulking Galaxy TabPro S which, despite the "Galaxy" branding, is actually a Windows tablet. Those from the Android camp might be hungry for a new premium slate but, sadly, that might not yet be happening soon. Up in line would be a new Galaxy Tab S3 generation but what we're seeing instead is a new batch of Galaxy Tab S2 tablets. And all that these tablets bring to the table is a new Snapdraogn 652 as well as Android 6.0 right out of the box.
