Galaxy Tab S3 leaked manual shows an overgrown Galaxy Note 7

Samsung may have lost its chance to make the Galaxy Note 7 the next big thing in mobile productivity, but it might take another stab at it before the Galaxy Note 8 arrives. That will come in the form of the Galaxy Tab S3, not a new Galaxy Note device. At least that seems to be the vibe that’s being given off by a leaked manual for the tablet, spilling almost everything just a week before its debut.

Huawei P10 Plus “real photos” and curved-screen debunking

Huawei P10 Plus “real photos” and curved-screen debunking

A number of leaks this week made by odd users with penchants for fakery have shown a curved-edge variant of the Huawei P10. This device has already all-but-been-revealed by Huawei to the point where we can almost list its entire specifications sheet. So when a curved-edge version of the device surfaced, suddenly, without any indication of existence in previous leaks, we investigated.

Galaxy Xcover 4 rugged phone leaks with Exynos 7570 chipset

Samsung’s most notable line of rugged smartphones is its premium Galaxy S Active series, but lesser known is its Xcover lineup, a less expensive alternative for those on a tight budget.

Assuming the leak is accurate, it seems the phone will sport the Exynos 7570 chipset and Android Nougat.

Facebook Video app released for Apple TV, Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV

Facebook Video was announced for release today for several major TV platforms: Amazon Fire TV, Samsung Smart TV, and Apple TV. What's missing from that list is Google's Android TV - which is surprising. Especially given the staying power of the Android TV platform and the fact that Amazon Fire TV is so extremely similar at its base. It's also strange given the attention Facebook has paid to Google's video products before - like Facebook's ability to stream from a smartphone to a Chromecast of Android TV device (which has Chromecast ability within).

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 gets its first leaked photo

MWC 2017 is barely two weeks away, so all the rumors, leaks, and insider tips are ramping up. Considering how late the revelation of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 came, it’s not exactly surprising that we’re only seeing more definitive leaks now. There’s really not much to see in this supposed image of the tablet, which looks like a render intended for the official PR materials. It does, however, seemingly confirm the one important feature for this tablet: it’s compatibility with Samsung’s S Pen stylus.

Samsung Galaxy S8 release date nears as “photos” quell fears

Samsung Galaxy S8 release date nears as “photos” quell fears

A set of photo-quality renders (not actual photos) appeared this week of the Galaxy S8 to further axe fears of a cut headphone jack. Apple tossed the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 along with a few Android devices before and since - it would seem that Samsung won't follow suit. Instead, with the assistance of the images published this week, we're able to get a look at what this forward-thinking yet conservative-tech-packed smartphone is going to look like.

LG G6 went with Snapdragon 821 to avoid May launch

LG G6 went with Snapdragon 821 to avoid May launch

The LG G6 is expected to debut in just two weeks, but, when it does, it will be missing a key premium feature most would have wanted. It will be running on a semi-recent Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 instead of the newest 835. While earlier theories presented an image of Samsung getting preferential treatment for its close ties with Qualcomm. While there is, indeed, a tinge of that, the situation might be a bit more complex and has a lot to do with production schedules and volumes.
