Galaxy Tab A2 S leaked photos show a good-looking disappointment

Samsung fans should probably be thankful the company is even making Android tablets at all, but tablets it does put out seem to be a shadow of its former self. The Galaxy Tab S3’s specs seemed to be a mismatch to its gorgeous looks, not to mention its price. It seems that Samsung will be repeating that dichotomy with the Galaxy Tab A2 S, a.k.a. the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 (2017), which will look somewhat decent but be burdened by half-decent hardware.

Galaxy S9 could look like this bezel-less patent

The Essential phone has finally started landing in consumers’ hands and while it’s not as explosive as expected, it has given people pause for thought about its screen cutout. Next week, we will finally behold Apple’s version of that cutout, which is a lot wider than the Essential’s simple notch. These two, however, may not have been the only ones with that idea. A recently published patent shows that Samsung was already toying with that same cutout last yea. With how things are going in this space, it may even make it to next year’s flagship.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Review

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Review

You can't say Samsung's Galaxy Note brand isn't resilient: even explosions and costly recalls couldn't dampen enthusiasm for the new Note 8. Phablet fans are dedicated, though, especially those who demand stylus support too, which means the Note 8 arrives with an audience of eager buyers waiting to open their wallets.

It begs the question... did Samsung do the right thing, bringing the Note 8 back from the grave?

Galaxy S9 announcement could be this early

Galaxy S9 announcement could be this early

It seems that Samsung hasn’t yet completely settled on a new cadence for its bi-annual flagship launches. Either that or it has decided to simply buck the trend and just push the release date earlier and earlier each year. According to industry sources and some math, Samsung might announce the Galaxy S9 near the start of 2018, two months earlier than the Galaxy S8 this year, though just a month early than last year’s Galaxy S7.
