Galaxy Note 7 Rumors Flat Curved Display

The one Galaxy Note 7 rumor we want to believe

The one Galaxy Note 7 rumor we want to believe

Most Galaxy Note 7 rumors so far have indicated that Samsung is going to launch a single phablet version, and when it comes to design, it won’t be a flat-screen model. Reports claimed that Samsung is only looking to sell a Galaxy Note 7 edge model this year which would feature a dual edge display, just like the Galaxy S7 edge. However, more recent leaks suggested that a flat Galaxy Note 7 might be in the works, or that Samsung at least considered one.

A brand new report, however, says that the phone will have a dual edge screen, but it’ll be a “barely-curved” display. More →

Samsung Turbo Speed Technology

Samsung found a way to turbocharge smartphones without upgrading chips or RAM

Samsung found a way to turbocharge smartphones without upgrading chips or RAM

“[A] common belief is that phone performance can only be improved in two ways, either using a faster processor or increasing the RAM.”

You may think that’s a quote from Apple, perhaps the introduction of an explanation of why the iPhone regularly bests Android flagships in performance despite having specs that never seem to measure up on paper. But you’d be wrong. That’s how Samsung starts a new video intended to explain that mid-range devices can be very powerful without sporting high-end specs. This only begs the question: If Samsung can pull off amazing performance without bumping up processor speed or adding more RAM, why does it keep doing that with every new Galaxy S and Galaxy Note model it launches?

Even more leaked photos of the Galaxy Note 7 we want

The Galaxy Note 7 is going to be unveiled in a few days, and Samsung’s next-gen phablet — what will likely become the best performing Android device of the year — will finally be official. However, most leaks so far have suggested the phone will come in a single curved “edge” flavor, which isn’t necessarily good news for everyone. More →

Samsung Boss Investigated Prostitutes

Samsung boss allegedly caught on camera soliciting prostitutes

Samsung boss allegedly caught on camera soliciting prostitutes

It shouldn’t be anyone’s business what you choose to do with your free time, but if you’re the boss of one of the largest companies in the world, you should at least make sure nobody finds out about your predilections. After all, everyone has a pretty decent camera in their pocket these days, and Samsung makes a huge number of them. He may be in a coma right now, but Samsung Group chairman Lee Kun-hee is being investigated for having allegedly solicited the services of prostitutes multiple times between 2011 and 2013.

Galaxy Note 7 Leaked Images

Leaked photo finally shows the Galaxy Note 7 you’ve been waiting for

Leaked photo finally shows the Galaxy Note 7 you’ve been waiting for

Something interesting has been happening behind the scenes here at BGR over the past couple of weeks. As we’ve been sharing more and more leaked photos and videos of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 7, more and more people have been emailing us with a curious concern. Here’s an example of a leaked video that shows the new Note 7 in action, and almost every time we publish one, we get emails from people concerned about rumors that the only available version of the Galaxy Note 7 will have curved edges on either side of the display.

We love the edge design — it makes the large Galaxy S7 edge shockingly comfortable and easy to use with one hand. But apparently not everyone is into it, and people are worried that there won’t be a flat option for the Galaxy Note 7.

Well, perhaps this newly leaked photo will put your mind at ease. More →

Samsung Galaxy S7 Active Review

Samsung S7 Active review: I can’t kill this indestructible smartphone

Samsung S7 Active review: I can’t kill this indestructible smartphone

I remember when I first started writing about technology, my boss at the time told me all about how he protected his Nokia N97 by keeping it in a fleece-lined pocket with daily cleanings, just in case the camera accumulated dust or scratches.

I’ve never been remotely that careful with a gadget. My phones have been dropped, scratched, soaked, and for one unlucky handset, immersed in a bucket of paint. Phones like the indestructible Samsung Galaxy S7 Active are phones for people like me.

Galaxy Note 7 to have bigger battery than Note 5 but smaller than Galaxy S7 edge

The Galaxy Note 7 will be unveiled on August 2nd and hit stores in the coming weeks – reports indicate the phone might be available for preorder as soon as Samsung’s Unpacked keynote wraps up. But with a couple of weeks, until the phone become officials, we’re still pounded by a large number of Galaxy Note 7 leaks. The latest one says the phone will have a bigger battery than the Galaxy Note 5, its predecessor. But that’s not necessarily a good thing, given that the phone might have a smaller battery than the Galaxy S7 edge. More →

Huge leak shows Galaxy Note 7 iris scanner in action on video

This has been a big week of firsts for eager Samsung fans who can’t wait to get their hands on the company’s upcoming new flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 7. After a few rounds of new photos leaked earlier in the week, we showed you the first ever video of a working Galaxy Note 7 on Thursday. The new flagship phablet appears to be everything we’ve come to expect after weeks of leaks and rumors — and that’s a good thing, because leaks have thus far painted a very impressive picture.

Now, another first: A video posted on Weibo by an anonymous user appears to show the Galaxy Note 7’s new iris scanner in action. More →

New photos show Galaxy Note 7 from every angle, but not the Note 7 we’ve seen before

There’s still a couple of weeks to go until Samsung officially unveils the Galaxy Note 7, but I don’t know what the company is really waiting for. We’ve heard all kinds of rumors and even seen video of the phone in action.

A new series of photos from the Chinese Weibo site clearly show a device that looks a lot like the upcoming Galaxy Note 7. The pictures confirm everything we’ve suspected before: it will ship in at least three colors, have an all-glass design, keep the S Pen, and even add an iris scanner. But there’s something special about these photos that Samsung fans will notice right away, and it points to not one but two new inbound Note 7 models.

Samsung invents the artificial muscles your future foldable smartphone will need

It’s no secret that Samsung wants to make more advanced flexible mobile devices in the future, including foldable smartphones. But such products require advanced manufacturing techniques that would guarantee the integrity of the product while it’s being bent.

Samsung, therefore, invented an artificial muscle whose mission, should it choose to accept it, would be to move the internal components and the screen of a flexible device in such a way that the hardware isn’t damaged. More →
