Phones in Octoberfest: what’s coming next month

Phones in Octoberfest: what’s coming next month

The year's major tech events are over but the smartphone show is far from done. In fact, it seems that many of the major OEMs actually skipped them, preferring to have their own stage. Amusingly, they all decided to do it next month, which means it will just be as busy as IFA a few weeks back. So to help you navigate through and schedule the next two to three weeks, here’s our guide to the smartphones that will be making their debut in October.

Why Galaxy S10 won’t displace Galaxy S9 in 2019

Why Galaxy S10 won’t displace Galaxy S9 in 2019

Rumored details about the next wave of Galaxy S smartphones this week suggest owners of the Galaxy S9 won't have reason enough to switch. Each year when Samsung's biggest rival, Apple, creates a "tock" to their "tick" year phone, it's largely due to the standard 2-year cycle for the average smartphone. Samsung's strategy, instead, seems to continue to revolve around a one-year flip. Today we'll talk about why the Galaxy S10 won't likely make the grade for buyers in 2018.

Galaxy P30 might be more complicated than initially thought

Galaxy P30 might be more complicated than initially thought

Just when you thought Samsung was cleaning up and consolidating its phone lines along S, A, and M brands, along comes a certain Galaxy P30 that throws that theory out the window. It would be exclusive to China, to be fair, but it was also supposed to feature something that the Galaxy S10 won't have until next year. But now it seems that there's a bit more to the Galaxy P30's story than that, making it actually more confusing where to place it in Samsung's grand scheme.

Samsung Experience 10.0 Launcher unofficially available now

Samsung Experience 10.0 Launcher unofficially available now

There was perhaps very little love for Samsung's TouchWiz Android skin. It definitely wasn't something owners of other phone brands pined for. But with Samsumg's new "Samsung Experience" UX, it might have finally become something Samsung fans would want to install on their devices ahead of the official release. Fortunately, some have been able to yank out the Samsung Experience 10.0 Launcher from an early build of the Android Pie-based firmware so you can take it for a spin and be prepares for what comes next.

Galaxy S10’s big release surprise (and how you might handle it)

Galaxy S10’s big release surprise (and how you might handle it)

Next year Samsung's set to release a Galaxy S10, and another Galaxy S10, and yet another Galaxy S10. Three different versions of the same device, all with different specifications. Unlike Apple, Samsung will be splitting their three smartphones up into two groups - flat and curved. The Infinity Display will be given to the two more extravagant devices, and the traditional flat display will be given to the least of these. I think Samsung is in for a surprise at the hands of flat display lovers around the world.

Galaxy P30 could have Samsung’s first fingerprint on display

Galaxy P30 could have Samsung’s first fingerprint on display

Samsung may have not yet given up on in-display fingerprint sensors entirely. There is, after all, the rumor that the Galaxy S10 next year will have such a feature. It might not be Samsung’s first phones to have that, though. Coming from a few leak sources, Samsung could be preparing an appetizer for that, putting a not so special fingerprint on display (FOD) in a certain Galaxy P30 that has yet to reveal its existence, sometime before the Galaxy S10 presumably.

Galaxy S10 3rd model tipped to bring back a cherished feature

Galaxy S10 3rd model tipped to bring back a cherished feature

Three different Samsung Galaxy S10 models were identified by their code-names this week, each with a different display. One was said to have a 6.44-inch display, another a 5.8-inch display (both of these with "Edge" or "Infinity" display properties.) The third device was said to come with a feature we've been waiting for in a top-tier Samsung phone for several years - the return of the flat screen!

Galaxy A9 Star Pro’s four cameras will look like this

Galaxy A9 Star Pro’s four cameras will look like this

Samsung once said it’s no longer obsessed with rushing to be first in the market, though that may have only been a fleeting thought. It also said it will be putting its innovations in its mid-range phones first and it seems to be dead serious about that. It has already revealed the Galaxy A7 (2018) with what is Samsung’s first triple camera system. But perhaps trying to outdo and outrun Huawei, Samsung is set to reveal the Galaxy A9 Star Pro with a ridiculous four-camera setup instead.

Galaxy A7 2018 debuts with triple cameras, side fingerprint button

Galaxy A7 2018 debuts with triple cameras, side fingerprint button

DJ Koh wasn’t kidding. Samsung’s mobile business chief shared that the company as pushing new features to its mid-range line first in order to appeal to millennials Now just a month after it launched its Galaxy Note 9 flagship, Samsung has announced the first fruit of that new direction, the 2018 Galaxy A7. And, lo and behold, it is indeed everything we have expected it to be, cameras and all.

Galaxy Note 9 Bixby update has an alternative to disabling it

Galaxy Note 9 Bixby update has an alternative to disabling it

Samsung’s latest flagships are nearly perfect but they all have one consistent flaw. No, it’s not Bixby per se but the obtrusive Bixby button at the side. Samsung dared to make it impossible to disable that button on the Galaxy Note 9 but, after major backlash, it said it would reconsider. Reconsider it did but not in the way users hoped. The latest update to Bixby doesn’t bring back that option but, instead, offers a way to make it harder to accidentally trigger Bixby in the first place.

Galaxy S9+ with Android Pie: here’s what it will look like

Galaxy S9+ with Android Pie: here’s what it will look like

Having launched before Android Pie did, it’s not really surprising that the Galaxy S9 is still on Android 8.1 Oreo (the Galaxy Note 9 has fewer excuses). And given Samsung’s track record, it’s also unsurprising that it hasn’t been upgraded yet. That said, it’s good to hear that Samsung is actually already working on its Samsung Experience 10 based on Android Pie. Even better, it seems to be well on its way to being stable. Even better than better, Samsung is taking a few visual cues straight from Android Pie itself.

Galaxy S10 might have a fourth sibling

Galaxy S10 might have a fourth sibling

Why have only two when you can get away with three? But why stop at three when you can have four? Even before Apple announced its iPhone Xs trio, but around the time rumors started popping up, Samsung was leaked to also have three Galaxy S10 models in the works. Now it seems that Samsung will actually have four, really three and a half, models, with one bearing what OEMs and carriers are pushing to be the next big thing in the market: 5G.
