There’s bad Galaxy S9 news for CES 2018

There’s bad Galaxy S9 news for CES 2018

If you were hoping to get a look at Samsung's upcoming flagship Galaxy phone during CES 2018 next month, we have some bad news. Sources claim Samsung will be showing off some of its phones at the event in January, as well as LG, but the showcase will involve "low-end" handsets. That will include the Samsung A8 and A8 Plus 2018 models, both rumored to feature the long Infinity Display and certain Bixby functions. The Galaxy S9 is another matter.

A safe Galaxy S9 gives LG a huge opportunity in 2018

A safe Galaxy S9 gives LG a huge opportunity in 2018

As the Galaxy S9 approaches, you'd be forgiven for thinking smartphones in 2018 will be a battle between Samsung and Apple. Don't count LG out of the game quite yet, mind. Even though the rumors around the Galaxy S9 have been far more plentiful than those detailing next year's LG G7, that's not to say 2018 won't give "the other" South Korean phone-maker a rare opportunity to differentiate itself.

Samsung Galaxy A8, LG K10 mid-range phones expected at CES 2018

Samsung Galaxy A8, LG K10 mid-range phones expected at CES 2018

Although Samsung has more or less confirmed that the Galaxy S9 wouldn’t be making an appearance as early as CES 2018, that doesn’t mean it won’t have any phone to show next month. It might, instead, simply show off a new phone for that who want the same look but for less. Less hardware, that is. In a similar fashion, LG might be doing something similar, debuting a new LG K phone vis-a-vis Samsung’s new Galaxy A model.

Samsung Bixby smart speaker winds up for 2018 debut

Samsung Bixby smart speaker winds up for 2018 debut

2017 could very well be considered the year of the smart speaker. Though Google Home launched at the tail end of 2016, Google introduced two new models this year: the Google Home Mini and Home Max. Apple revealed its Siri-powered HomePod for an early 2018 launch, while Amazon let its new Echo Show out of the gate and released a new version of the standard Echo. Surely we can't expect Samsung to sit on the sidelines and just watch all of this happen, right?

The Galaxy S9 must fix these three big S8 flaws

The Galaxy S9 must fix these three big S8 flaws

2017 had a bumper crop of smartphones, but the mobile world refuses to slow, and all eyes are on the Samsung Galaxy S9 in 2018. The company's flagship consumer phone - since, it would likely argue, the Galaxy Note 8 and its eventual successor are targeted at prosumers - has big shoes to fill, coming on the heels of the generally well-received Galaxy S8. Still, that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement.

Galaxy S9 won’t support Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ in the US

Galaxy S9 won’t support Qualcomm Quick Charge 4+ in the US

The Galaxy S9 seems to be shaping up to be somewhat of a disappointment. Just recently, a leak seemed to confirm that it might not have dual cameras, which is being reserved for its Galaxy S9+ sibling. Now a new leak claims that, despite being powered by Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 845, it won’t actually be supporting Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Quick Charge 4+ technology. But as it turns out, that might actually open a bigger can of worms as well.

Samsung has just revealed three new Samsung Notebook 9 models for the 2018 year, the trio arriving in both 13.3-inch and 15-inch versions. Joining the three new models is the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen, a lightweight 2-in-1 model with a 360-degree hinge and an included S Pen stylus. Unlike the other models, the Notebook 9 Pen is made with a premium magnesium aluminum, which makes it lighter than regular aluminum. Samsung calls this magnesium aluminum alloy "Metal12."
