HTC U Ultra “note” phone has leaked

HTC U Ultra “note” phone has leaked

A set of photos show the next HTC smartphone - tentatively called the HTC U Ultra - and it's an interesting take. This smartphone appears to be a hybrid between past HTC designs and the LG V10 - or LG V20. Including a second display for icons, this device seems to have taken the idea that a second display was necessary - and ran with it. This device also has a relatively large set of features that make it look a lot like the Samsung Galaxy Note.

Which phones can play FM radio?

Which phones can play FM radio?

A whole bunch of smartphones out on the market today have FM radio capabilities - but their owners don't know it. There's no real good reason for this lack of knowledge save the lack of advertising on the part of phone makers. FM Radio in a phone isn't currently a very sought-after feature, so - regardless of how often it's included in phones by default - it's just not spoken about. Today we're listing the whole lot of phone devices that can run FM Radio right out the box.

Samsung granted patent for fold-out smartphone design

Samsung granted patent for fold-out smartphone design

While some patents do eventually make it into a final product in one for or another, most never see the light of day. They usually just become legal safeguards, “just in case”. In the case of this particular Samsung patent, however, both might be true. The Korean manufacturer has been known to throw oodles of patents regarding foldable and flexible smartphones, but its patents for specific “fold-out” designs have been scant, if not non-existent. Until now, that is. The US Patent and Trademark Office just granted Samsung the patent for a design of such a fold-out smartphone which would curiously put Lenovo in a rather dangerous position.

Samsung Smart TV Smart Hub update goes beyond watching TV

Samsung Smart TV Smart Hub update goes beyond watching TV

These days, watching on the TV, especially on smart TVs, goes beyond the mere act of actually watching something. In addition to gathering content from multiple sources instead of just one live broadcast TV, time on the “tube” is also usually spent organizing those sources, searching for relevant videos, or keeping up to date with various bits and pieces of information. To cater to all those use cases, Samsung has updated its Smart Hub with features to augment your watching experience, be it on the TV itself or even on your smartphone.

Samsung Gear smartwatches iPhone compatible with release of new apps

Samsung Gear smartwatches iPhone compatible with release of new apps

Is 2017 going to be the year that Apple and Samsung finally start playing nice together? Apple is opening its first retail store in Samsung's home of South Korea, and now Samsung's Gear line of wearables have their own iOS apps. Ok, so maybe playing nice is still out of the picture, but at the least the latter means owners of the Gear S3, Gear S2, and Gear Fit 2 can use their devices with an iPhone if they prefer.

This Samsung spin-off reinvented the Post-It (for some reason)

This Samsung spin-off reinvented the Post-It (for some reason)

If there's office contraband then it's probably the humble - but coveted - Post-It pad, but one Samsung spin-off is aiming to give the sticky note a tech upgrade. Mangoslab began life as a Samsung Venture funded start-up courtesy of the South Korean company's internal incubator back in 2016, and its first product is Nemonic, a sticky note printer making its debut at CES 2017. Rather than a pad of Post-Its on your desk, you have a small printer block instead.

Galaxy S8 in gold revealed in new photo leak

Galaxy S8 in gold revealed in new photo leak

Rumors continue to build for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone, and while an official reveal is still at least a few weeks away, we seem to be getting a good idea this week of what the device will look like. Only a day after a handful of renders depicting the Galaxy S8 in black surfaced, an actual photo of the phone in a gold color was posted to China's Weibo service, offering a head-on view of the display and chassis.

Samsung Chromebook Plus, Pro flaunt stylus, Android apps

Samsung Chromebook Plus, Pro flaunt stylus, Android apps

While Samsung may have been one of the earliest adopters of Google’s Chromebook vision, it has languished in recent times compared to other more enthusiastic Chromebook makers. At CES 2017, however, it has returned with a vengeance. Chromebooks that can fold into tablets are nothing new. But one that also has a stylus to boot? Practically unheard of. And that is exactly what Samsung is bringing to the table. And even better, it is coming with Android apps as well, before other existing Chromebooks can get their hands on them (officially, that is).

Samsung Notebook Odyssey is quite obviously a gaming laptop

Samsung Notebook Odyssey is quite obviously a gaming laptop

Samsung says that their brand new Notebook Odyssey is the first they've ever made specifically for gaming. I'm inclined to agree, as they've introduced two different versions of the Odyssey, both with aesthetics that make Samsung seem less mature in notebook styling than we know they are. Both versions of the Samsung Notebook Oyssey work with light-up keys, a "HexaFlow Vent," and 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processors.

See Galaxy S8 release details in top-end renders

On the Galaxy S8 front this morning a series of images were "leaked" by a fellow by the name of Veniamin Geskin. These images show the Samsung Galaxy S8 in all its massive glory, complete with a full lack of a home button up front. This version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 would also be sporting two display "edges" flowing down its side, not unlike the Samsung Galaxy Edge lines of the past.

Galaxy Note 8 is still a thing, coming with 4K screen, Bixby

Why throw the baby out with the bathwater? That might be the very question crossing Samsung execs’ mind in trying to decide the fate of its Galaxy Note brand. After the utter mess that was the Galaxy Note 7, there have been repeated calls for dumping the Note brand, believing it to be cursed, or at least irreparably tainted. A single incident, however, may not be enough reason for Samsung to throw in the towel, and, at least according to an unnamed company official, it will still put out a Galaxy Note phablet later this year.
