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. Slow and unpredictable, some devices, even new ones, don't always get updates that should be theirs during their covered support period. 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 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. When Samsung Mobile finds a feature that works, they run with it. It is as it was with the Infinity Display, coming with the Note Edge and cascading across the whole top-tier Galaxy smartphone lineup.

Galaxy Note 9: If this meeting went well, result may be hero team-up feature

The most game-changing feature of the Galaxy Note 9 might not be anything we've seen before. Not a top-notch camera, nor an in-display or under-display fingerprint reader. Nay - the biggest feature in the Galaxy Note 9 might be a doorway to collaboration between Samsung, Xiaomi, and Huawei. This possibility comes after word that Samsung's Li Jie met with executives from the other two major smartphone brands in China.
