A Galaxy S8 mini is supposedly coming very soon [UPDATE: April Fools]

Once upon a time, almost every major flagship, especially those from Samsung, got a "mini" version. Then suddenly, without warning or explanation, it stopped. And again without warning or explanation, a mini might be making a comeback.

Samsung Tizen has 40 zero-day vulnerabilities, researcher warns

Samsung is increasingly using its Tizen platform on its connect devices, such as smart TVs, but that may not be a good thing from a security standpoint.

Is a secret Galaxy S8 Pro edition release still being tested?

This morning a set of images of a Samsung Galaxy S8 dual-camera setup have appeared, right alongside rumors of another final product. This new edition of the device would be launched not long after the initial Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus - if it does end up being released at all.

A major piece of the Galaxy S8 story has finally fallen into place.
