Galaxy Fold pre-orders canceled at Best Buy, but there’s a silver lining [Update]

Toward the end of April, Samsung made the decision to delay the release of the Galaxy Fold after it became clear that the device had some design flaws that made it easy to damage the phone's delicate display. In the weeks since, we've been waiting for Samsung to announce a new release date, but one has yet to come down the line. Now, it seems Best Buy is tired of waiting on the new release date and has decided to cancel all of its Galaxy Fold pre-orders.

Samsung Galaxy Fold Game of Thrones edition: Isn’t that odd?

The folks at Caviar got their hands on a Samsung Galaxy Fold and decided to bring the bling. They've crafted a gold renditioning of the phone, a reconditioning of the phone, maybe even a remixing of the phone, in Game of Thrones TV show styling. This version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold is also aimed at fans of the next book by George R. R. Martin: The Winds of Winter.

Samsung 5x zoom camera is ready but probably not for Galaxy Note 10

Samsung 5x zoom camera is ready but probably not for Galaxy Note 10

First it was dual cameras. Then it was bokehs, a.k.a. portrait mode. These days, it seems that the battle over smartphone cameras is moving over to higher level of optical zoom that won't force OEMs to bulk up their phones. Huawei has done it and so has OPPO so it's really no surprise that Samsung, and soon even Apple, are already following suit. The bigger question, however, is whether this 5x optical zoom camera module will debut on the Galaxy Note 10 and the chances of that seem to be a bit slim.

Samsung Galaxy Home Mini could beat its big brother to release

It's been quite some time since Samsung first revealed the Galaxy Home, its Bixby-powered smart speaker. That happened way back in August, and we still haven't been given a release date for it yet.

As it turns out, the company may be plotting a smaller Galaxy Home that's meant to better compete with budget speakers from Google and Amazon.

Samsung, like a lot of phone manufacturers, likes to release new color variants for its flagship phones after they release, and it seems that the Galaxy S10 will be no different. The next color on deck is definitely a loud one, so if you like making a statement with the phones you use, it might be worth checking out.

Galaxy Note 10 might vaguely resemble an iPhone XS Max

With all the focus on Huawei's fate vis-a-vis the US ban, there has been less attention on other phones that are just coming out of the woodwork. Even less on phones that exist only in rumors and speculation. The Galaxy Note 10 belongs in the latter and now that the dust around Huawei has settled down a bit, there is a bit more room to talk about what could be Samsung's oddest Galaxy Note yet in a long time.

Verizon’s Galaxy S10 5G released without one major feature

Verizon’s Galaxy S10 5G released without one major feature

After a bit of a wait, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is now available. This is definitely an exciting launch because the Galaxy S10 is one of the first 5G flagships out of the gate, but unfortunately, this release is a fairly limited in scope in more ways than one. The phone is only available on Verizon for the time being, so if you're not already a Verizon customer or don't have plans to switch carriers, you'll be waiting for the Galaxy S10 5G a little longer.

Galaxy Fold fixes are coming and these are the changes Samsung made

It should have been a moment of glory for Samsung but it became yet another nightmare in its history. Admittedly, the Galaxy Fold didn't literally go up in flames like the Galaxy Note 7 but the $2,000 price tag and the uncertainty of its delivery made Samsung's blunder all the more poignant. The company hasn't given up yet and a new report now details the steps Samsung took to address those fatal flaws.
