Galaxy Note 9: details closer to the truth

Newest details leaked on the Galaxy Note 9 suggest we're already nearly on the money for Samsung's biggest phone of the year.

Bixby 2.0 coming to Galaxy Note 9, smart appliances

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 ad takes iPhone potshots – but is it realistic?

Samsung loves taking pot-shots at Apple, though it's fair to say that its commercials can be more memorable for how readily they backfire than how convincing they are.

Galaxy Note 9, S10 early launch: Samsung rushes again

It seems that Samsung may have not been burned badly enough by the Galaxy Note 7 catastrophe in 2016. Either that or it is slowly transitioning to a new and more permanent release cadence. Since the Galaxy S8 last year, Samsung has been moving its flagship launches earlier and earlier, shifting away from the company's once predictable strategy. Korean media are now reporting that not only will the Galaxy Note 9 be launched earlier this year, so will the Galaxy S10. And Samsung may have a lot of reasons for doing so.

Galaxy Tab S3 Android 8.0 Oreo update now available in UK

Samsung is notorious in the Android world for many things and one of the biggest ones, next to bloatware, is its update schedule.

So when a nearly new device does finally get a new Android version, there's reason to rejoice. Lo and behold, the Galaxy Tab S3, Samsung's not so latest premium tablet, is finally getting Android Oreo and a bit more.

Galaxy Note 9: The smallest leaked detail (and a few more specs)

There's not a whole lot we can't assume about the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. With display, processor, camera, and color information, it would appear that we've got a decent idea of what the whole phone's going to look like and act like. According to the information we've gathered thus far, it would appear that it's going to be rather difficult telling the difference between the Galaxy Note 8 and the Galaxy Note 9 - save a single, very much extremely, tiny detail.

The next Galaxy Smartphone: Samsung leaks tell a weird story

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 was tipped this week to have a bumped-up scheduling, followed by Samsung Galaxy S10 (or SX) and Galaxy X, too.

Last week, the Oculus Go and the Lenovo Mirage Solo launched, both standalone mobile versions of virtual reality platforms. This week at its I/O developers conference, Google will undoubtedly make a case again for its Daydream VR platform, be it powered by smartphones or standalone, almost the poor man's VR experience. None of these are entirely new. From the Google Cardboard to the Samsung Gear VR, mobile VR has been around for as long as "desktop" VR has and yet, unlike its bigger cousin, it has failed to gain long-lasting traction and support.
