Galaxy Note 8 PyeongChang 2018 edition connects the Winter Olympics

Once upon a time, smartphones came in black or white colors, and sometimes the greys in between. These days, mobile devices have all sorts of hues, some with kinda funny names (“Kinda Blue”). If you’ve wanted a very white premium phone, like, say, a Galaxy Note 8, you’re pretty much out of luck.

Samsung Metal12 to make phones sturdier, lighter

Smartphones have always been and continue to be a design puzzle. How to cram so much components inside while keeping the phone lightweight and, at the same time, keeping them durable. Since little can be done to change the materials used in making circuit boards and other components, some OEMs turn their attention to the frame and materials used outside instead. Indeed, based on this trademark filing, Samsung might be eying using its new “Metal12” alloy for future smartphones and even wearables as well.

As a result, Samsung has been ordered to stop selling products that utilize the technology (in China, that is).

Bixby calorie counting feature could make the AI worth using

It's no secret that many Galaxy owners are less than fond of Samsung's personal assistant, Bixby. The company included a physical button on its most recent flagship phones for summoning Bixby, but that backfired. Complaints prompted the company to finally add a way to fully disable the service, but users may find a use for it after all: the company is teaching its AI to count the calories in food.
