Galaxy S9 Bluetooth AKG earbuds raise headphone jack question

Galaxy S9 Bluetooth AKG earbuds raise headphone jack question

The Galaxy S8 was, at one point in its pre-launch past, thought to leave out the headphone jack, which obviously didn't prove true. Included with the Galaxy S8 phones is a pair of Samsung earbuds with AKG branding and audio tech...a pair of wired headphones, that is. The same will possibly be true for the Galaxy S9, but with a big difference that is raising a big question: it is tipped to include a Bluetooth version.

Galaxy S9 announcement to happen early, face recognition tipped

Galaxy S9 announcement to happen early, face recognition tipped

Samsung has so far pushed its product announcements and launches earlier and earlier after the strategy seemed to work wonders for the Galaxy S7. But when is early really too early? When it happens near the start of the year, perhaps. That seems to be the growing expectation of a Galaxy S9 announcement taking place before MWC, perhaps even at CES. This, however, may backfire if the smartphone does include a feature found in the iPhone X, which just started shipping to buyers last week.

Samsung, Oppo and Huawei are making foldable phones: report

Following the launch of the sleek and eye-catching ZTE Axon M, a smartphone with two full-size screens, industry sources have showed up to claim that Samsung, Oppo and Huawei have all kicked off dedicated steps to launch their own similar models, possibly ushering in an age of phones with two screens instead of one. Oppo recently patented a dual-screen phone design, and Samsung has been teasing such a device for years.

Galaxy S9 might finally fix Samsung’s biggest 2017 blunder

Galaxy S9 might finally fix Samsung’s biggest 2017 blunder

2017 has so far been great for Samsung. It's Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 flagships are doing swell. Google has somewhat taken its place in having this year's most criticized smartphone. And Apple has helped make its case for $1,000 devices. But as great, or even just good, as the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 are, they both suffer from one annoying misfeature: the placement of the fingerprint sensor on the back. If this super early 3D schematics are to be believed, however, Samsung might have finally decided to fix it for next year's Galaxy S9.

Samsung Linux on Galaxy might run full, graphical Linux desktops

Samsung Linux on Galaxy might run full, graphical Linux desktops

Samsung sometimes tries to be too much like Google and engages in moonshot projects that are often abandoned quickly. So when it launched its new DeX “phone as a desktop” platform, it was natural for some people to wonder how long it would last. At least, for now, it seems that Samsung is investing a sizeable amount of resources to expand its coverage, like its upcoming Linux on Galaxy feature. Samsung just posted a concept video hinting that it could be more than what others have been able to do.

2018 Galaxy A5 with Infinity Display teased in benchmarks

2018 Galaxy A5 with Infinity Display teased in benchmarks

The 2018 version of the Samsung Galaxy A5 may feature an Infinity Display, the same display found on the Galaxy S8 handsets. The use of Infinity Display means the home button will be eliminated from the front of the phone, and we'll likely see the fingerprint sensor put on the back of the handset. Assuming this is all true, it'll give Samsung fans an option for an Infinity Display that is cheaper than the existing handsets with this feature.

There’s bad news about the Galaxy S9 display

There’s bad news about the Galaxy S9 display

As is usually the case, speculation about upcoming flagships begins well before that flagship is actually launched, and with the Galaxy S9, it seems we've been hearing rumors and speculation since the Galaxy S8 arrived on the scene. One topic that has seen a particularly high amount of back and forth is the Galaxy S9's fingerprint scanner. Plenty of rumors have claimed that Samsung has been looking into an in-display fingerprint reader, which would certainly be an interesting biometric addition to Samsung's phone.

The best Note 8 is finally coming to the US

The best Note 8 is finally coming to the US

For the past few years, Samsung has been giving its fans in the US a pretty raw deal. Sure, the company isn't being stingy in offering its best smartphones - like this year's Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S8 - on all of the US carriers. Problem is, Samsung has been saving the best colors for foreign shores. Now, that's changing.

Kurrent is an iPhone X charging physical alarm clock (for Galaxy S8 too!)

There's a market out there for people who want to live in this touchscreen-heavy world whilst still slamming their hand on the top of a giant alarm clock. For those people, there's the Kurrent. This alarm clock works with an extremely simple user interface, a handful of physical buttons, ports for wired charging, and a Qi wireless charging pad. The last bit is optional - and quite obviously made to arrive just in time for the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the rest.

Samsung vs Apple patent appeal rejected by US Supreme Court

Samsung vs Apple patent appeal rejected by US Supreme Court

It’s nearly 2018 and Apple and Samsung are still going at it in patent lawsuits. The battle that has been raging for nearly a decade, however, might be at a close now that the Supreme Court has finally put its foot down. Unfortunately for Samsung, that means it will indeed have to fork over the $119.6 million a jury awarded to Apple years ago. But while the sum is peanuts for Samsung, and only a fraction of what Apple wanted, the loss is nonetheless legal leverage Apple can exploit in the future.
