Qualcomm is preparing for war

As it unveils the Snapdragon 845 and reveals its Windows on ARM plans, Qualcomm is getting all its friends together, and the omissions are conspicuous by their absence.

Galaxy Note 8 gets a built-in VPN in latest update

Samsung hasn’t exactly been the most religious OEM when it comes to rolling out updates, but when it does, sometimes include some unexpected treats. Take, for example, the Galaxy Note 8, which has just gotten an update that adds a new feature to the phablet, new to the Galaxy Note 8, at least. That feature is the Galaxy J’s “Secure Wi-Fi”, which is just a fancy pants name for Samsung’s VPN service that promises secure and private browsing, even and especially on unencrypted Wi-Fi networks.

Galaxy S9 could use Samsung’s new 512 GB UFS storage

Which also means it might not have a microSD card reader as well.

Galaxy S9 key feature may come to a flip phone first

Last week, Samsung revealed a new flip phone called the W2018. With dual displays, a Snapdragon 835, and 6GB of RAM, the phone is crazy enough as it is, but then we learned of the camera, which is definitely the star of the show. The camera is not only worthy of attention because of its f/1.5 aperture, but also due to the fact that the aperture is adjustable.

Samsung patent uses palm recognition for passsword hints

Samsung patent uses palm recognition for passsword hints

Fingerprint scanning is secure and reliable. 3D face recognition is fast but still in development. Samsung has the former and is reportedly working on the latter for the Galaxy S9.

No, it won’t unlock your phone using your unique palm lines. It will just help you remember your password or PIN code.
