Galaxy S9’s camera likely a speed-master for slo-mo

The Galaxy S9 may be the first major device to benefit from a Samsung image sensor revealed in the rumor mill this week. The 3-layer image processing unit is tipped to use a method of capture not entirely unlike the 3-layer image sensor released this year by Sony. If the past is any indicator, it would not be a surprise to see Samsung employ this new image processor in some models, while Sony's equivalent IMX image processor lives in others.

Samsung just made the Bixby button even more pointless

Samsung just made the Bixby button even more pointless

Speaking as a Galaxy S8 owner, I have to say that the phone is great, save for one rather annoying feature: the Bixby button.

The Bixby button is the bane of my mobile existence

The Bixby button is the bane of my mobile existence

Samsung made a controversial decision with its flagship Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ smartphones: to include a physical button for summoning Bixby, the personal assistant that wasn't finished upon the handsets' launch. Some people were okay with the button's existence when the option (briefly and unofficially) existed to remap it. Samsung squashed that ability, though, and now we're left with a button that is, for many of us, really annoying and completely useless.
