Galaxy A Quantum uses quantum computing to make unpredictable random numbers

Galaxy A Quantum uses quantum computing to make unpredictable random numbers

Samsung seems to have an obsession with bringing "quantum tech" to consumers. Its Quantum LED or QLED screens have become its flagship display tech on TVs and, just recently, on some laptops as well. Now it's bringing yet another quantum-related technology this time to a smartphone. No, the Samsung Galaxy A Quantum isn't the world's first QLED phone. It is, however, the world's first phone with a Quantum Random Number Generator (QRNG) designed for stronger security.

Galaxy A21s to follow on the heels of the last month’s Galaxy A21

Galaxy A21s to follow on the heels of the last month’s Galaxy A21

You'd be forgiven if you're unable to keep up with Samsung's phones below its Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines. Contrary to its previous goal of streamlining its branding, Samsung has instead flooded the market with almost indistinguishable model after indistinguishable model. Case in point is the Galaxy A21s that has started to pick up steam in the rumor mill, following the Galaxy A21 that was just announced last month and has yet to be available in stores.

Galaxy Fold price cut to “clear inventory” before 2 and 5G

Galaxy Fold price cut to “clear inventory” before 2 and 5G

Several leaks of Samsung's plans for the next generation of foldable display-toting smartphones suggest now's the time to buy - if you're not worried about having the absolute newest iteration of the tech. The Samsung Galaxy Fold 1 will apparently be sold on a significant discount with a slightly different title: The Samsung Galaxy Fold Special Edition. The difference will be... the price, and that's it.

Galaxy Fold Lite 4G to join the Galaxy Fold 2 this year

Galaxy Fold Lite 4G to join the Galaxy Fold 2 this year

Given the troubles of the Galaxy Fold and the relatively modest success of the Galaxy Z Flip, you'd think that Samsung would take it easy with foldable phones this year. Caution, however, has never really been in Samsung's vocabulary (except after the Galaxy Note 7) and, despite the odds that include a COVID-19-infected world, it may actually do more foldables for 2020. While the Galaxy Fold 2 has already been leaked before but a new Galaxy Fold Lite 4G is now making rounds in the rumor mill with a price tag that undercuts even the Galaxy Z Flip clamshell.

Galaxy Note 20+ will have a very different display than non-Plus 20

Galaxy Note 20+ will have a very different display than non-Plus 20

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Note 20+ will apparently be very different machines. Word from Ross Young this morning suggests that the Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ will have LTPO tech in its display, while the Galaxy Note 20 has LTPS. What's the difference, you might wonder, and why should I care if the device tech has a single letter different in its name?

Galaxy S20+ DxOMark verdict is an unsurprising bag of compromises

Galaxy S20+ DxOMark verdict is an unsurprising bag of compromises

The Galaxy S20 Ultra's high price tag may have forced many buyers to consider the Galaxy S20+ as a more affordable alternative. In many cases, the two Samsung flagship phones are basically identical. Their biggest difference lies in their cameras with the Galaxy S20 Ultra carrying everything that Samsung could cram into it. Many reviewers, including DxOMark, found that to be quite excessive and it has taken a look a the slightly smaller Galaxy S20+ to see if it offers a better balance.

Full iPhone 12 lineup leaks, with sizes and prices… and Samsung

With the leak today, there's not a whole lot that appears to need leaking from the iPhone 12 collection, barring surprises from Apple that remain completely under wraps. Information this week taps the details we've not yet gotten a firm grasp on, including the names, the exact sizes on the displays, and confirmation of the base amounts of RAM. Storage sizes and prices of all four devices are also here, right out the gate.

Galaxy Note 20 leak says no Ultra: could the high price era be over?

Galaxy Note 20 leak says no Ultra: could the high price era be over?

Today the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 leaks are dropping in hard and fast. Information on the Samsung Galaxy Note 20's been relatively thin int he past few weeks - but what we've got today is a full spread. The most interesting model will be the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 (not the plus) due to a growth in size from 6.3-inches to 6.42-inches - that's a significant push! The Samsung Galaxy Note 20+ will have a slight change, from 6.8-inches to 6.87-inches, with an increase in resolution, too.

Galaxy Note 20 punch-hole camera could have a status indicator around it

Galaxy Note 20 punch-hole camera could have a status indicator around it

The urge to banish all bezels around the screen has resulted in a few casualties while manufacturers try to figure out how to best put back what they have kicked out. We're still waiting for the day that under-display cameras finally become a thing but, until then, we'll have to settle for notches and cutouts. The latter, unfortunately, has led to even less hardware, like LED indicators. Samsung may have a solution for the latter and it's something that third-party apps have already tried implementing quite a while back.

Next Nintendo Switch could be powered by Samsung Exynos, AMD RDNA

Next Nintendo Switch could be powered by Samsung Exynos, AMD RDNA

The Nintendo Switch has quickly become one of the most popular consoles in just three years but it probably isn't because of its raw power. Of the three big gaming consoles, the Switch can easily be singled out as the weakest and that might not be changing drastically even with a Nintendo Switch 2. It may, however, finally ditch the aging NVIDIA Tegra X1 for something that comes from the fruit of Samsung's and AMD's recent partnership.

Samsung Pay to get a physical debit card soon

Samsung Pay to get a physical debit card soon

Mobile payment systems have more or less dropped out of the tech news headlines but that doesn't mean they've dropped out of the market. Once in a while, you'll hear about Apple Pay and Google Pay expanding to cover more banks and territories. They aren't the only options around, of course, and Samsung Pay has apparently been around for five years now. To celebrate that rather surprising length of operating time, the company is proudly announcing its next big step, which ironically goes back to giving you a plastic card.
