Samsung appliance factory location tipped as South Carolina

Back in February, we heard word that Samsung was considering building an appliance factory in the United States, something reportedly planned in light of worries about import taxes being implemented by the Trump administration. A short while later, sources cropped up claiming that the appliance factory would likely be in either Alabama or South Carolina, and now an update on that has surfaced, with new sources stating that the Korean company has chosen South Carolina.

Bixby speaker rumors spark even as voice remains absent in US

As expected, Apple has just jumped on the smart speaker arena that Google, Amazon, and, soon, Microsoft already occupy. And as expected, this has started rumors that Apple’s biggest frenemy will also be joining the fray. Samsung is now believed to be aiming for a piece of that pie, with patents pointing to potential smart speaker powered by Bixby no less.

Galaxy Note 8 release date will take on iPhone 8

We've already learned a lot about the Galaxy Note 8's internals through a variety of rumors, but today new reports are telling us when Samsung may be planning to launch the phone. Assuming this new rumor is correct, it shows a change in strategy for Samsung after last year. That may ultimately be a good thing considering how the Note 7 crashed and burned.

Samsung Galaxy J 2017 series goes all out on Exynos, metal

There are murmurs that Samsung is gearing up for an all out mobile SoC war, competing with Qualcomm’s Snapdragons, Apple’s As, Huawei’s Kirin, and everything in between. And it seems that it is equipping even its foot soldiers with its Exynos weapon. Samsung has just unveiled in Europe the 2017 series of its mid-range Galaxy J line and, in addition to upping the ante as far as appearances goes, the phones have also ditched the Snapdragons in favor of the company’s own Exynos processors.

Latest leaks show best Galaxy Note 8 features yet

Have the masses put the tragedy of the Galaxy Note 7 behind them far enough? Samsung does seem to think so if it’s willing to put new and still unproven features in it. Based on a new set of leaked images, the Galaxy Note 8 is poised to get some long-awaited features, including dual cameras and, perhaps more interesting, a fingerprint scanner hiding beneath the screen.

Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) appears on Amazon ahead of launch

All rumors thus far point toward the Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) model launching some time this month (June 22 is one possible date), but as of now the phone remains unofficial. That may change sooner than anticipated, however, as an Amazon listing for the phone just recently went live early, showing off what are presumably official photos of the budget smartphone, as well as a curious date: June 5 (that's today).

Download security updates for these phones ASAP

Download security updates for these phones ASAP

Google released a list of smartphones this week that includes every device touched by a Security Update over the last two months. This includes devices from a bunch of different manufacturers - everything from BlackBerry to Vivo. Samsung has a bunch in there, as does General Mobile and Google (with its Pixel and Nexus devices). I and we recommend that every device on this list should be checked immediately to make certain these security updates have been downloaded - that means, you, Janice from accounting!

Galaxy S8 Pirates of the Caribbean Edition is official (and hard to get)

Remember that special 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Galaxy S8 variant we saw a couple weeks ago? It is back, and it is official this time. There's a big catch, though, that may disappoint fans located in the western world: it appears to only be available in China, making it particularly difficult to get in the US or similar regions. If you do find someone to send you a copy, though, expect to pay handsomely.

Galaxy S8+ Rose Gold variant appears in leaked photo [update]

The larger of the two Samsung Galaxy S8 handsets, the Galaxy S8+, has appeared online with a new look: a Rose Gold look, to be exact. The pink-colored variant recently surfaced on Chinese website Weibo, the same place we previously saw a gold variation appear. The shade appears very similar to the iPhone's Rose Gold option, though perhaps just a tad darker. The smaller of the two handsets is nowhere to be seen (in this color).

Samsung Connect Home release date and pricing revealed

Samsung Connect Home release date and pricing revealed

It was only a couple of months ago that Samsung first detailed its Connect Home WiFi router, and today the company is ready to talk release dates and pricing. Pre-orders for Connect Home will open later this week, but one thing to note is that Best Buy has landed itself an exclusivity deal for this device. This seems to be something of a timed exclusivity deal, so you won't necessarily have to go through Best Buy to outfit your home with a mesh network of Samsung Connect routers.

You can now buy an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S8 in the US

Although there have been efforts to encourage consumers to buy their smartphones directly from manufacturers or retailers, carrier subsidies still held sway over the market. This was mostly because of the staggered payment system and warranties offered by carriers. OEMs like Huawei, Honor, and ZTE have recognized that pattern and have set up programs to match carrier offers. Samsung is doing likewise with the Galaxy S8 and S8+, selling unlocked models with financing and premium care perks.
