Microsoft xCloud game streaming coming to Samsung phones

Microsoft xCloud game streaming coming to Samsung phones

Game streaming is not exactly new but when the big boys start publicly investing in it, it may finally start to get real. While Google’s Project Stream is aiming for the path of least resistance by only requiring a desktop Chrome browser, Microsoft’s Project xCloud is casting a wide net to include as many devices as possible. And, based on its statements at SDC 2018, that would include Samsung’s line of Android-based Galaxy smartphones.

Samsung DeX Linux beta is coming: here’s how it works

Samsung DeX Linux beta is coming: here’s how it works

It has been more than a year since Samsung first teased the possibility of running a fully-supported full Linux (Ubuntu really) desktop on a Galaxy smartphone. Considering Samsung’s almost Google-like tendencies, it was perhaps considered DOA. At SDC this year, however, the company is making some noise to prove that Linux on DeX is very much alive and, in fact, will start its beta testing phase next week. But before us Linux geeks all get giddy, here is the fine print of what this upcoming power user feature will entail.

Galaxy F foldable phone: A clearer look

Galaxy F foldable phone: A clearer look

Today we're taking a slightly closer look at the Samsung Galaxy F - assuming that's what Samsung will call its Foldable Phone. This week Samsung spoke very little about the Galaxy S10, their next hero phone, and instead revealed their foldable display tech, and branding, as they began their journey into a strange world of transforming Android devices. When they showed their device to the masses, they did so in the dark - because they didn't want to show everyone their final design. But we've got a slightly closer look today.

The Samsung foldable phone has more questions than answers

The Samsung foldable phone has more questions than answers

Samsung is making a foldable phone but, though we've seen the screen, there remain more questions than answers about the Android device and the market for others like it. Previewed at Samsung's opening keynote at its annual developer conference, SDC 2018, the heavily-disguised handset was more about showing off Samsung Display's flexible AMOLED technology than making a pitch to phone buyers themselves.

Samsung’s first foldable phone is a missed opportunity

Samsung’s first foldable phone is a missed opportunity

At long last, Samsung has finally revealed a working prototype of its much-hyped foldable phone. But while it finally gives some sense of closure to years of speculation and leaks, reception and fuss over what could be the market's second foldable phone has been less enthusiastic than expected. And it's not because someone got there first. Because while Samsung has indeed proven that a truly foldable phone is not only possible but also coming soon next year, its presentation failed to address the biggest question that consumers will have in their mind: "what for?"

Galaxy J4 Core is Samsung’s unexpected second Android Go phone

Galaxy J4 Core is Samsung’s unexpected second Android Go phone

Samsung isn’t always a fan of not being in control. There was a point in time when it considered getting out of the Android market in favor of Tizen because it gave Google too much control over its mobile devices. So it’s almost surprising that Samsung would actually have two Android Go phones waiting for emerging markets and users with simpler needs and means. Although not yet officially announced, the Galaxy J4 Core is now all but known and might soon be ready to hit the market in time for the holidays.

Samsung One UI, Android 9 Pie beta and launch dates announced

Samsung One UI, Android 9 Pie beta and launch dates announced

The much-criticized Samsung TouchWiz UX is dead. And soon, so will the short-lived “Samsung Experience”. At its now famous Samsung Developer Conference, the Korean manufacturer announced its upcoming One UI, the user experience that will, among other things, also run on its foldable smartphone. This UI will be based on Android 9 Pie, whose beta testing phase will start very soon. Amusingly enough, most people will still probably call it “TouchWiz” anyway.

Samsung can’t resist the notch – in fact it now has several

Samsung can’t resist the notch – in fact it now has several

Samsung may have been one of the display notch hold-outs so far, but that won't last, with new Infinity Display panels promising to further annoy those who can't stand screen cut-outs. The fresh additions to the company's AMOLED line-up were previewed at SDC 2018, Samsung's annual developer event, today, expanding the existing Infinity Display brand with several new options.

Samsung puts voice at the heart of the Smart Home

Samsung's smart TVs are gaining more voice control, with new partnerships with streaming services like Netflix and Spotify that won't need you to pick up the remote.

Samsung Infinity Flex foldable phone revealed

Samsung Infinity Flex foldable phone revealed

Today with the Samsung Infinity Flex display, Samsung revealed their foldable smartphone. This device has two displays, one on the outside that looks a lot like a standard Galaxy S9 (or thereabouts). The device opens up like a book, if the first display was the cover. Inside is a display that's twice as large as the display up front. Today we're meant to start understanding why this concept became a reality.
