South Korea Retailer Accidentally Outs Some Minor Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Details

When it comes to phone leaks there are only two things you need to remember. Firstly, leaks will happen and there won't be that many surprises by the time launch rolls around. Secondly, at least one retailer will fuck up and post information before it's supposed to. That just happened with South Korean retailer KT Plaza Shop, who posted some details about pre-ordering the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 before promptly deleting it. Read More >>

Did You Plan on Buying a 512GB Galaxy Note 9? Too Bad, Samsung Probably Won’t Let You

When it comes to international releases, phone companies rarely offer a universal range of products. Some of them do, but plenty of them don't. Samsung is one of the worst, keeping certain colours or variants away from specific markets for reasons that never quite make sense. That's not likely to change anytime soon, because the rumoured 512GB Galaxy Note 9 isn't likely to be available here. Read More >>

Rumour Claims Samsung Galaxy S10 and LG G8 Will Use Fancy Tech to Avoid Notching Their Screens

The latest trend in the smartphone industry is full-screen displays that minimise the bezel and take full advantage of a phone's size. There's still hardware that needs to be positioned on the front, though, so the majority of phone makers have resorted to adding a 'notch' to accommodate sensors, the front camera, an earpiece/speaker grill, and so on. But if the latest rumour is to be believed, Samsung and LG might implement fancy new tech to avoid any sort of notch or bar at the top of their next big phones. Read More >>

Details About Samsung’s Long-Expected Bixby Speaker Have Just Leaked

When it comes to levels of AI assistant popularity Samsung's Bixby is, well, erm... It's probably best not to go there. It's only available on expensive Samsung phones, and to top it off a lot of people don't really like it. That's compared to the others, which are all more readily available and in the hands of more people. Samsung's not going to let Bixby go anytime soon, and it's long been expected that the company will develop it's own Bixby-powered smart speaker to take on the competition. It just so happens that some details about that have leaked. Read More >>

Dutch Court Says Samsung Doesn’t Have to Update Your Old Phones

If you have an Android phone you can probably expect two to three years of software updates if you're lucky, and by the end of it you'll probably only get essential security updates. Beyond that you're stuck, and will need to buy something new if you want to keep the software up to date. People have been fighting for better software updates on third-party Android phones for years, but they've faced a bit of a snag after a dutch court ruled Samsung doesn't have an obligation to offer them.

Samsung’s Latest Ad is All About How Apple Throttled Those iPhones

When it was discovered that Apple had been throttling older iPhone models without telling anyone, people rightly had some strong words to say about it. While the company insisted that the move designed to ensure a consistent user experience, and not to try and force them to upgrade, they were forced to make amends to everyone that had been affected. That means discounted battery replacements, and giving people the option to turn off throttling - though that may lead to "unexpected shutdowns". Read More >>
