Samsung LEVEL U Pro ANC shuts everything but the music out

Samsung LEVEL U Pro ANC shuts everything but the music out

While many headphones promise a quality listening experience, few are able to deliver because of the ingress of ambient noise. Earbud type headphones are the biggest offenders because their design makes it admittedly harder to block out the outside world when you want to disappear into your music. Although not exactly one of the biggest name in the audio industry, Samsung is injecting its own brand of tech savvy into a new pair of LEVEL U Pro ANC earphones that add a unique type of noise cancellation to the company's popular neckband accessory.

Samsung’s odd Serif TV is now available in the US

Samsung’s odd Serif TV is now available in the US

Most TV makers these days are touting how their products have barely no borders and are so thin that they seem to actually blend into the wall. In short, they are trying to make TVs "disappear", visually speaking, of course. While Samsung is indeed part of that "most" crowd, for at least one model it has decided to go in the opposite direction. Unveiled last September was the Serif TV that shouted borders all around, supposedly inspired by the Serif font for the letter "i". Now that unusual design of a TV is finally available in the US, almost a year later, but only from the Museum of Modern Art.

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.

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.

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.
