To quote from a classic, rumors about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note7 were greatly exaggerated and today makes no exception as we just found out that August 16th is the supposed date upon which the future phablet-extraordinaire will reach Europe.
It seems to be the time of the year for brand new flagship chipsets. The first one to come out was Snapdragon 821 from Qualcomm. Even though it is pretty much same as the 820, it offers a 10% increase in performance. Just recently we had MediaTek’s COO announcing their flagship SoC, the Helio X30 which will be out early next year. Yesterday we had reports of Qualcomm’s successor to the Snapdragon 820, the Snapdragon 830, which will also be available early next year. The latest entry to this list is the Samsung Exynos 8895 which is their unannounced chipset.
The current Samsung Galaxy A8 is the slickest and sexiest smartphone in the company’s portfolio, boasting an incredibly thin silhouette, being just 5.9 millimeters thick. Today’s piece of intel is that the Korean tech giant is preparing a sequel (I can hear the fanboys cheering), as the 2016 version of the Samsung Galaxy A8 just surfaced on GFXBench.
Last year, the Samsung Galaxy S2 was something we saw coming a mile away. News regarding the Gear S3 release has been sparse to say the least, but a new report says we may see it in September when IFA rolls around.
A picture of the upcoming New Gear VR surfaces and shows few changes on the outside compared to the current model. However, there might be new stuff under the hood.
Well, well, what do we have here? Samsung has officially released the Galaxy Note7 Ad. With the release date closing in on us it is only logical for Samsung to release the ad now. The release date is confirmed to be on the 2nd of August which is just 5 days from now. Even though most of the specs of the phone have already been leaked by the famous leakster (*cough Evan Blass), the ad confirms a few of these further more. If you haven’t seen the ad yet, check it out below!
Around this time last month, we spotted a device believed to be the Samsung Galaxy Folder 2 on GFXBench. It appears as if the handset is gearing up for a release as it has just reared its head again at Bluetooth SIG.
Remember PhonesReview covering about the presence of a UHD display on the Samsung Galaxy S8. If you didn’t read that report, check it out here. And guess what, some blogs in China are going nuts about Samsung’s unannounced flagship. According to some leaked reports Samsung is already developing the Galaxy S8 and it will be made ready for next year’s Mobile World Congress. That is some great news for the Galaxy fans as Samsung have made one of the best flagships of this year with the S7 and S7 Edge.
Earlier today, we told you about the Samsung Galaxy J2 which touched down in India. Now we’re going to focus on another device from the J series, with the Samsung Galaxy Tab J tablet.
You will see a large increase of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 news across the board this week ahead of the phablet’s official launch on the 2nd. We expect to see plenty of new accessories when it arrives, and a New Gear VR could be one of them.
