The upcoming foldable Samsung Galaxy Note X may have just popped up on Samsung’s support site. Here’s what we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy X release date and features.
What’s a foldable phone?
A foldable phone is exactly just the way it sounds, one that either inward or outward and reveals a tablet-like device when stretched out. This is possible with the use of a bendable OLED panel. Samsung, LG and Lenovo have each showed off bendable devices and displays at various industry events and have registered many patents for the technology. Previously known as Project Valley, Samsung’s technology has now become known as the Samsung Galaxy Note X.
Samsung Galaxy Note X Review • Slated for 2018 release • Was initially limited 100,000 units • Possibly a smartphone/tablet hybrid
Hybrid Design • Device might be 4K • 5 inch mobile screen and rumoured 7inch tablet display • Hinge technology
Slated for 2018 release As peer the latest news, the Galaxy X will be launching in 2018. The new details are coming straight from the horse’s mouth itself. It is said that the company will launch its new product once it overcomes some of its problems.
Latest Rumours For months we have been hearing frequent rumours about the Samsung Galaxy Note X, a smartphone which will feature a folding display. The idea is that you will be able to use it as a smartphone and then fold it out to full tablet size by creating a new mobile segment which mirrors the tablet-laptop 2-in-1 hybrids which we have already seen in the computing industry.
Final Verdict Though the bad news is that Samsung Galaxy’s phone might be very tough to grab, the Note X is a limited-run device. However, it’s for sure that the upcoming device will be one of the rarest phones in the coming year.
While users are going gaga with Samsung’s newest launches Galaxy S8 and S8+, the attention has now shifted to the Note 8. But, thanks to the latest rumours circulating everywhere, folks are now eagerly looking forward to 2018 for the release of Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
As per a new patent filed by Samsung, the upcoming Galaxy Note device may be much thinner than you had ever imagined. What’s more interesting is that the Note 9 may feature the Exynos 9810. Users had expected that the device would be built on a 10mm process, given the fact that the previous smartphones Galaxy Note and Galaxy S was equipped with similar chipsets. However, if recent reports are to be believed, the Note 9 may come with a different system-on-chip (SoC).
If the newest rumours are correct, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 can come armed with a better and superior SoC than that of Galaxy S9 or S9+. The device may come with either a 7mm or an 8mm processor- which hints at a fictitious Exynos 9810. This Exynos 9810 was previously linked to the S9 and S9+ which was set to be shipped with CDMA support. As compared to the contemporary Galaxy S and other Note devices, this may be the biggest performance difference ever.
This alleged processor will be built by using 10 nm FinFET technology, thus hinting at a more powerful and ambitious processor which should be able to render more power than that of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Now, if these reports really prove to be true, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 can be one of the sturdiest and better handsets. The change in build process will be resulting in comparatively reduced power consumption, boosting the frequency.
Now that everything is said, it is expected that the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 will be a huge hit among its users.
Although the Galaxy S8 won’t be making an appearance at MWC’ 2017, it is still coming and is expected to be up for sale in the month of April. If you’re buying a new phone, is it worth waiting for? Or is the cheaper option, the better option? Let’s find out.
Design: As per our source, the Galaxy S8 (measuring 140.14×72.20×7.3mm) will be slimmer and shorter than its predecessor.
Display: According to a report, Samsung has decided to increase the screen resolution to Ultra-HD 4K, as the VR headsets reduce the resolution to half for each eye. However, we won’t be surprised if the Samsung Galaxy S8 retains the Quad-HD display from the Galaxy S7.
Stylus: The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge didn’t possess a stylus but there’s speculation that the Galaxy S8 will feature the S-pen.
Processor: We are fairly certain that the Samsung S8 will replace the S7’s Snapdragon 820 processor with the newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 835. Inside the S8, the Adreno 540 GPU will also be included. RAM: The Snapdragon 835 can accept RAM up to 8GB, though the more likely approach is 6GB for S8 given the fact that the S7 with the Snapdragon 820 chip, had 4 GB DDR4 RAM.
Camera: The Galaxy S7 has a 12 MP rear camera. But for the Galaxy S8 Plus, there is a talk of a dual camera to compete with the new Apple iPhone. The selfie camera will also be expected to have an upgrade.
Battery: In Galaxy S8, the Adreno 540 GPU promises a better battery life and also supports the new Quick Charge- 4.0, which gives 5 hours of battery life from just 5 minutes of charging, while the S7 has some serious battery issues.
Software: The Galaxy S8 series will ship with the recent Android Nougat whereas the S7 series came with Marshmallow. However, Samsung S7 will be getting a Nougat update very soon.
Conclusion: After losing money on the Galaxy Note series, Samsung is back with a bang with Galaxy S8 series. With all these upgraded features, it’s likely to become an incredible upgrade for the gadget geeks.
The new updated version of Samsung A3 in the year 2017 is launched. Let’s check out the features of the sleek and edgy looks of the phone. The new update of Samsung is the A series ranging from A3, A5 to A7. The smallest of the lot is the A3 series which became the best seller in 2017.

Expectations are that this smartphone will make some deals with companies like Three and Vodafone. Those are contract phone deals with latest offers and schemes.
Design The back of the phone has a shiny surface and it is available in various colours like black, Peach Cloud, Blue Mist, Gold Sand and Black Sky. The cons of a shiny surface are that the phone slips from hands and fingerprints get covered on it. The thickness is 7.9 mm with a battery backup of 2350mAh along with a fingerprint sensor. This is one of the newest features added to the smartphone. The battery is fixed with the phone and cannot be removed but the charging occurs faster than any models. The speaker is moved from bottom to right-hand side of the phone. It is also waterproof in nature and got the IP68 rating.

Great news for the Samsung lovers! The new flagship of the Samsung, i.e. Galaxy S8 is decided to be one of the biggest smartphone launches of 2017. Here in this post, we will discuss what we as of now know about the new flagship smartphone of Samsung, including its release date, price, features, specifications and more.
UK Release date: There are still no leaks about the release date of Galaxy S8. But we all know that Samsung favors February or March month. So, it can be predicted with surety that the S8 will be declared at MWC 2017 which will run from 27th February to 2nd March.
Price: Although there are no rumors regarding the price of the Galaxy S8, we can predict that the price for the entry-level model will fall between £550 and £600.
Features & Specifications: As we have been completely impressed by the previous years’ Samsung devices’ features, it is really exciting to see what Samsung is going to do with the Galaxy S8.
Design: Galaxy S8’s design combines glass and metal together. A removable battery might be there. The quick charging and wireless can’t be holding out as the favorite features here.
Display: The Galaxy S8 is likely to follow the 5.5-inch screen and a 4K display might be a good move for Samsung for including it on the S8. VR is that reason. Since VR is the big growing trend in this year, we would not be amazed to see Galaxy S8 with Quad HD resolution for every eye resulting in a noteworthy improvement.
Cameras: Dual-cameras have become a standard feature of the latest smartphones and the Galaxy S8 is no different. According to a Chinese source, the S8 will feature dual-lens modules possibly to be manufactured by Samsung Motors.
Processor: Some rumors have leaked about the processor of the Galaxy S8, although it is tipped to arrive with the ARM Mali-G71 GPU, which is one of the strongest graphics chips on today’s market. Coupled with the former 4K display rumors, it is becoming obvious that Samsung has VR completely in mind. The Galaxy S8 is predicted to offer either an Exynos 8890 or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 829 processor. Even it appears that the 2017 processors will be manufactured with a 10nm process. Leaked data displays that ARM is operating on 10nm reference designs and both Samsung and Qualcomm use ARM. With the present trend of chips at 14nm, the S8 with a 10nm processor will be stronger and energy-efficient. Possibilities are the Galaxy S8 will arrive powered by the next-gen Exynos processor or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processor. Although modems are exciting, the Galaxy S8 could arrive with Qualcomm’s X16 through the Snapdragon 830. When we have the networks for supporting it, we will be able of streaming theoretically a VR event live or downloading movies in a few seconds.
USB-C: It seems that the USB Type-C could appear on the Galaxy S8. We predict that Samsung could stick with micro-USB for making sure that the S8 is Gear VR-compatible; however, we feel that the VR headset’s new version is likely to come before or with the new flagship phone. Few rumors also state that Samsung is thinking to remove the headphone jack like Apple did with the iPhone 7.
Dual-boot: A patent from last year shows that Galaxy S8 might be running both Android and Windows OS simultaneously. Users can drag files between the two and minimize one as a floating icon using a multi-window type feature. It is also probable for assigning memory and processor cores to every OS.
The dual-boot concept is definitely interesting; however whether this is used or not for the S8 remains for being seen but is, we think, unlikely and would be more suitable for a different standalone product. Many people are already calling the next Galaxy S smartphone as one of the great smartphones of 2017. And we are all excited to see it. So, stay tuned for more information about the new Galaxy S8.
Blackberry DTEK50 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 7, These two new Android smartphones have no comparison if cost is concern, but Blackberry and Samsung Note smartphones have there unique qualities to compare.
If we look back at a week before the news of the Android world, we can see that the week includes all types of latest news about two most recent launched Android smartphones: Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and Blackberry DTEK50. These two new smartphones have entered the Android world almost at the same time. After its launch, we have seen that Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has become really popular among the masses. However, the newly launched Blackberry handset also has won the smartphone wars. Let’s have a look at their comparison:
Comparison on security:
Blackberry is back with its second Android phone, while PRIV was its first solid Android attempt. Its switching to the Google’s Android OS put a great affect to the Blackberry fans. The idea behind this attempt is just to make Android more secure and safer. It is claimed by Blackberry that its DTEK50 handset is world’s most secure smartphone. As a part of Android security offerings of Blackberry, the DTEK50 handset comes preloaded with Blackberry Password Keeper. This app helps you keep your every information including login, passwords or any other vital records safe and secure. In addition, you can use this app for creating secure passwords also. Apart from this, what are the other things that make it different from Note 7 in terms of security and safety? Here’s a list:
Dedicated security research and response teams
BID (Blackberry Integrated Detection
On-going security patching
FIPS 140-2 Compliant full disk encryption
A better boot loader
Hardware root of trust
Hardened Linux Kernel
In my personal opinion, Blackberry DTEK50 is an excellent phone by look and security options. But it lacks in fingerprint scanner and Iris scanner which Samsung Galaxy Note 7 provides us.
Blackberry fans vs. Samsung fans:
Blackberry made an incredible change after stepping on the Android world. People like Blackberry because of its top-most security assurance. As we all know that security is Blackberry’s favourite subject. Blackberry reminds me of Nexus-like visuals. Its shifting to Android is big technology news that stirred its fans greatly. After its launch, people have just gone crazy. We have found many tweets on Twitter about this phone’s specifications, especially its features. The tweets are all about this marvellous handset’s security.
On the other hand, Samsung has also made its Note 7 by keeping in mind its fans. The phone is designed for the users base specifically – those who are craving a Stylus and want a larger screen too. Melding together some great features of S7 range, Samsung has just made an excellent job again with its new S pen Stylus and iris scanner.
Galaxy Note Series users:
Since its debut in 2011, Galaxy Note series has come a long way and has experienced many challenges this year. Note series handsets are the only smartphones of Samsung which use styluses and this has made a niche target audience. Compared to the last year’s Note handset, newly launched Note 7 has received many upgrades under the hood. Thus, this phablet has gained huge amount of popularity among the masses and has been highly able to attract the Galaxy Note series users particularly.
If I discuss about Note 7’s first impressions, then I can say that it has just nailed it by its sleek design and exclusive features like IP68 water and dust protection, S Pen Stylus, Super AMOLED display and Android Marshmallow OS. Note series users prefer this model more because of its host of improvements over its predecessor Note 5. Interestingly, it is competing its rival Blackberry DTEK50 in security options also, as it comes with biometric security like fingerprint scanner and iris scanner.
In my personal opinion, both are superb smartphones. But if I think about only security, I will choose the Blackberry brand. Blackberry always ensures us secure using of mobile. On the other hand, if I think about security, advanced technology, excellent design, and superb features, I would rather choose the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Blackberry DTEK50 needs some improvements in terms of software. Otherwise, this handset is extremely great. But according to the choice of brand, Blackberry market is not so up to the mark in terms of competition with Note series. The smartphones of Note series run on Android OS, which is user friendly, and DTEK50 is only the second phone of Blackberry in the Android market. So, if we prefer using Android and have already experienced Samsung’s features, we will definitely choose the Note 7.
On July 14, Samsung declared the Galaxy Note 7, disclosing the details of the day of its introduction. Presently, a new report arriving from South Korea says that this flagship Phablet of Samsung is going to hit every on the same day of the launch itself. Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which is scheduled to get released in New York and also in London and Rio De Janerio on 2nd August, will be available for buy early after the launch, reported by Korea ET News, noting the company insiders.
This is the first ever time in the history of Samsung that the smartphone giant will not follow its general pattern which surrounds the launch of its gadgets. Previously, Samsung used to take 2 to 3 weeks for making the flagship mobile available in the market. Some rumours say that the organization wants getting a head start over its arch competitor Apple, which is anticipated to declare the new iPhone 7 series in September as well. The previous year, Samsung proponent the introduction of the Galaxy Note 5 by around a month and unveiled it a pair of weeks ahead of the launch of iPhone 6 series. However, this time, the South Korean organization has asked the supply partners for stocking up their stockpile with the units of Galaxy Note 7 before 2nd August. If they attain good outcome in providing the products, Samsung is going to have more than one and half months for selling Galaxy Note 7 with no rivalry, which is going to help the organization carry forward the achievement of its Galaxy S7 series. The forthcoming Samsung Phablet is said to arrive in 2 CPU variants, relying on the area of sale. The one bound for India and flowing markets, will house the very own Exynos 8893 Octa-core chipsets of Samsung, whereas the second model, bound for China, Europe and the U.S. is said to feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC. The remaining features in both the models are going to be the same.
