The date is no longer a secret. Samsung itself has proudly announced that it will be holding an Unpacked event on 23rd August.

Samsung Bixby videos show why the S8 assistant is special

Samsung's Bixby Voice may have taken longer than expected to reach the Galaxy S8, but now the company is wasting no time explaining just why it thinks its Assistant is better than Google or Apple's. In a new series of videos, Samsung has started digging through the functionality Bixby offers on the smartphone - and will also support on upcoming devices like the Galaxy Note 8 due to be released later in the year.

iPhone 2018: Samsung chip win leak comes under attack

When it comes to making the beating heart of the iPhone, competition between chip-makers is fierce, and 2018 looks set to be no different. Despite reports that Samsung will sneak back into the 2018 iPhone as the manufacturer of the Apple A12, there are now conflicting claims that, in reality, another Apple partner will get the coveted - and lucrative - spot.

Galaxy S8 battery: What you should (and shouldn’t) worry about

If you, upon first hearing that the Galaxy S8 would feature a 3,000mAh battery, were concerned that it wouldn't be adequate enough, you're not alone. Many expressed concerns that Samsung banked too conservatively on its smaller flagship's battery capacity, and though the S8+ has a larger 3500mAh model, it doesn't matter much in light of the phone's larger overall size.

Galaxy Note recycling sees Samsung go green before Note 8

Samsung may be rebooting a few hundred thousand Galaxy Note 7 handsets as Note 7 FE refurbs, but that still leaves millions of the recalled phablets needing to be dealt with. Rather than junk them, however - and facing pressure from environmental agencies - the South Korean firm has detailed exactly how it plans to make the most of the components that went into the ill-fated phone.
