Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10 on Android 10 beta need this DeX for PC app

One of the often-cited consequences of modifying an Android experience too much is that updates take longer to test. That's true not just for the Android experience on the phone itself but even for features that connect with external devices. That's what testers of the Android 10 Beta for Samsung's latest Galaxy flagships have discovered to their dismay. Worry not because Samsung has now made available a special version of the Samsung DeX app for PCs and Macs to address exactly that.

Galaxy S10 receives more Galaxy Note 10 features

Galaxy S10 receives more Galaxy Note 10 features

Perhaps the age when Samsung kept its flagship lines separated through features is slowly coming to an end. While there are still things that the Galaxy S10 can't do without an S Pen, Samsung is slowly bridging that gap through feature updates. The latest feature set may not be as high-profile as the previous one but Galaxy S10 owners can now at least enjoy some more feature parity with the Galaxy Note 10.

Samsung dual-screen folding phone patent takes on the Microsoft Surface Duo

Samsung dual-screen folding phone patent takes on the Microsoft Surface Duo

Foldable phones, ones with actual flexible and folding screens, are slowly becoming a dream come true for phone makers and tech pundits. Consumers, however, are still on the fence on the drawbacks of such experimental devices. The announcement of the Microsoft Surface Duo, not to mention the launch of the LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen, seems to have struck a chord with more practical users and, unsurprisingly, Samsung may have a solution for that as well.

Galaxy S11 may avoid Pixel 4’s biggest mistake

Galaxy S11 may avoid Pixel 4’s biggest mistake

Samsung Galaxy S11 device family leaks at the tail end of the first week of November 2019 suggested the phones would ramp up battery life. As we know from a variety of phones this year - most notably the Google Pixel 4 - making a new phone with a smaller battery than its predecessor doesn't often end in good results. Samsung appears to be summoning the will to give their top-tier smartphones more battery capacity to handle the next round of futuristic technology - high refresh rate displays and 5G connectivity.

Samsung One UI 2.0: Key differences you’ll notice

Samsung One UI 2.0: Key differences you’ll notice

"Stock Android" is a term often lauded in the tech world. Android the way Google intended it to be, without bloatware and other confusing modifications, seems to be a standard many users want. Diverging from that standard tends to draw some lukewarm reviews.

Samsung Exynos in trouble as major layoffs announced

Samsung Exynos in trouble as major layoffs announced

When it comes to mobile processors, Qualcomm may be the household name but it's far from being the only one. In addition to long-time rival MediaTek, there's also Huawei's HiSilicon Kirin, Samsung's Exynos, and, now, Apple's A chips. One of those, however, may be changing significantly and perhaps not for the better. Samsung has just posted a letter that reveals it will be laying off 290 employees at its R&D office in Austin, Texas that may see the end of Samsung's custom ARM cores used in its Exynos chips.

Samsung W20 5G could be the foldable clamshell you can’t get

Samsung W20 5G could be the foldable clamshell you can’t get

It might not be common knowledge outside of China and Korea but Samsung is one of the last few phone manufacturers that still makes flip phones, a.k.a. clamshell phones. These phones aren't made available outside of those two markets, which is why few know about them. It's next one, however, could actually make headlines if recent speculation is on the mark. According to those, a so-called W20 5G, probably the SM-W2020, might not only be a flip phone but also one with a foldable screen.

Samsung ISOCELL-Motion could avoid Pixel 4’s Motion Sense problem

Samsung ISOCELL-Motion could avoid Pixel 4’s Motion Sense problem

Motion gestures might be the next fad in smartphones, which makes LG's sudden withdrawal in the G8X ThinQ look rather premature. Although not the first, Google's Motion Sense, based on its Soli radar technology, might be inspiring other manufacturers to try their hand as well, no pun intended. Unsurprisingly, Samsung may be one of those but a trademark filed in Europe could hint at how it will avoid the problems the beset the Pixel 4's implementation.

Galaxy A70 coming to the US via Verizon first

Galaxy A70 coming to the US via Verizon first

In the past, Samsung has limited its presence in the US smartphone market to its top-end premium flagships. The reasoning, perhaps, was that these were the only ones that would sell in such a primary consumer market. Times have changed, however, and so have consumer tastes and budgets. Samsung has finally made available a couple of its Galaxy A series phones in the US and it seems that it isn't done yet for 2019. The Galaxy A70 is reportedly launching soon but it might be a little too late to make an impact.

Huawei’s shipping so many phones, the global market is growing again

Huawei’s shipping so many phones, the global market is growing again

Huawei keeps shipping more phones every year, growing said shipments by percentages that leave all other companies in the dust. For example their year-over-year growth for Q3 of the year 2019 for unit shipments was a positive 29%. The next largest - and only other major positive percentage - was Samsung's comparatively meager 8%. Because of Huawei's monstrous growth, global smartphone vendor shipments this quarter (compared to this same quarter last year) are up 2%.
