Gorilla Glass 6 focuses on drops, coming to Galaxy Note 9 maybe

Gorilla Glass 6 focuses on drops, coming to Galaxy Note 9 maybe

Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 has made durability tests one-thirds boring. Unless you have a Mohs level 6 pick in your pocket or an open glass cutter in you bag, phone screens are mostly safe from scratches. They might, however, not be that protected from drops, which could result in shattering. That is why for the Gorilla Glass 6, Corning has focused on making the material survive more drops from higher heights.

Bixby speaker, foldable Galaxy X phone to keep Samsung buzz alive

Bixby speaker, foldable Galaxy X phone to keep Samsung buzz alive

Even if the Galaxy Note 9 launch turns out to be a dud, Samsung may have a backup that will at least keep it in the headlines in the months to come. Whether or not those upcoming products actually save it from slipping is a different question entirely. We may not have to wait too long with reports coming in that the Bixby speaker, perhaps the more controversial of the two, is actually just a few weeks away from its debut.

Galaxy Note 9: Real photos, display glass cracks

Galaxy Note 9: Real photos, display glass cracks

Today we're having a peek at a couple of photos of the Galaxy Note 9 in some rough condition. Below you'll find the pair of images, both looking a lot like the Galaxy Note 8 (pictured first in this article held in-hand). That's to be expected, as we've seen enough pre-release renders and schematics to choke a giraffe. What's interesting here are the details that normally wouldn't matter - like the crack in the frontside glass.

Samsung ad openly mocks iPhone X download speed

Samsung ad openly mocks iPhone X download speed

Ads that try to poke fun or even diss competitors often fall under one of two types: tastefully funny or outright mockery. Samsung’s anti-iPhone ads have fluctuated between those two, sometimes even falling somewhere in between. This newest video clip is somewhat of the latter, explicitly calling out the iPhone X and its “not as fast as the Galaxy S9” download speed. Whether the ad is actually entertaining or not, you decide.

Galaxy Note 9 double leak: All out in the open

Galaxy Note 9 double leak: All out in the open

Today a couple of major leaks of the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 basically revealed the entirety of the company's secrets. True, we do not know how the S Pen is charged, and, true, we're not one hundred percent sure of the version of Android the phone will have right out the gate. But I mean, look, what's leaked has been everything else there is to have beyond hands-on experience and a physical unit.

Galaxy Tab S4 leaked specs paint a nearly complete picture

The Galaxy Tab S4 has been the subject of a handful of leaks over the past fews month, but it's been largely overshadowed by talk of the Galaxy Note 9.

Samsung announces industry’s first LPDDR5 RAM, ready for 5G

Samsung announces industry’s first LPDDR5 RAM, ready for 5G

Samsung might be best known for its smartphones and consumer electronics but it might surprise you to know that its most steady and most profitable business as been from its silicon, particularly its memory and storage products. Samsung has admittedly been in the lead and it’s not trying to widen the gap even further with the industry’s first 8 Gigabit (Gbit) LPDDR5 DRAM, preparing for a future when 5G data connections and AI services are the norm.

Galaxy S10 tipped to be freed from iPhone X’s shadow

Galaxy S10 tipped to be freed from iPhone X’s shadow

It's no secret that there's been a bit of contention between the makers of the Galaxy S and the makers of the iPhone over the past decade. Apple accused Samsung of copying their phone design, and Samsung accused right back. Each time a new Galaxy S device was released over the past decade, the device(s) and the launch were invariably compared to those made by Apple.

Google should stop Samsung from ruining Android Go

Google should stop Samsung from ruining Android Go

Motorola just announced the Moto E5 Play Android Go Edition, its first Android Go phone following in the footsteps of the Moto X4 Android One Edition. It is also one of the first Android Go phones to come from a major manufacturer (depending on how you rank HMD Global/Nokia and Alcatel). Its unexpected appearance could trigger questions of the state of Google’s Android Go thrust and what could be its most controversial member: Samsung’s still unreleased Galaxy J variant. Samsung’s first Android Go is already expected to be like no other Android Go phone you’ve seen so far and Google might want to rethink its strategy before the cat gets out of the bag.

Galaxy Note 9 leak: who needs notches, elevating cameras

Galaxy Note 9 leak: who needs notches, elevating cameras

Smartphone designs these days can be grouped into three buckets. There’s the futuristic like the Vivo NEX and OPPO Find X, the notched like the iPhone X, and “everyone else”. Of course, somewhere in between the last two are smartphones that adopt a less flamboyant appearance but still have minimal bezels. These include and, admittedly, are mostly made up of Samsung’s smartphones, who, as these new Galaxy Note 9 images show, refuse to jump on the notch bandwagon.

Galaxy Tab A2 might have another Bixby feature

Galaxy Tab A2 might have another Bixby feature

It seems that Samsung might be out to prove Google wrong when it comes to Android tablets. More than just preparing the premium Galaxy Tab S4, the manufacturer is also expected to unveil the Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 and the Galaxy Tab A2 10.5, a.k.a. Galaxy Tab A2 XL. But while that last model is clearly the budget option of the three, it could also be the more interesting of them as well. According to some snooping, this entry-level tablet could actually be Samsung’s first tablet to have a dedicated Bixby Button.

Galaxy Note 9 price and color leak: it’s mixed

Galaxy Note 9 price and color leak: it’s mixed

The Galaxy Note 9 reveal is less than a month away but, truth be told, there is almost nothing we don’t know about it at this point. Well, except for one thing: the price. Thanks to some perhaps too helpful sources in Poland, we might have an estimate on that as well. But more than just the price, we’re also being teased with a color combination that leaves us scratching our head as well.
