Verizon has begun rolling out a new update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge.

[Deal Alert] Samsung Gear 360 (2017) is $115 on Amazon (50% off MSRP) or $113 from third-party sellers

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Phones these days have replaced many of the most commonly used portable appliances from the late 20th century. It's pretty incredible how something that's small enough to fit in your pocket has, for the most part, replaced cameras, camcorders, radios, paper maps, GPS devices, voice recorders, newspapers, credit cards — really, the list just goes on and on. However, 360-degree video cameras are not on that list, so if you aspire to shoot some quality 360-degree video, you'll need to purchase a separate device.

[Deal Alert] Dual-SIM Galaxy S9+ down to $754.99 on eBay

Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

For a couple of years now, Samsung has sold their flagships with Snapdragon chips in the US and Exynos chips everywhere else. The performance (and development, interestingly enough) is superior on the Exynos models nowadays, and the dual-SIM capabilities of these SM-G965F/DS variants can often come in handy. You can now pick up a dual-SIM S9+ for $754.99, which is lower than previous deals we've posted about.

This version of the Galaxy S9+ is equipped with a 6.2" 1440p AMOLED display, an Exynos 9810 (not the Snapdragon 845 in US models), 6GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage with microSD expansion, a dual 12MP rear camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, and a 3,500mAh battery.

Samsung silently releases updated Chromebook Pro with backlit keyboard

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Samsung's high-end Chromebook Pro was one of the better Chromebooks released last year. The 12.3" 2400x1600 display was among the best I'd ever seen in a laptop, and the Core m3 was a more than adequate bump over the ARM-wielding Chromebook Plus. The only real complaints I ever heard or had with the devices were related to the keyboard. Travel was terrible, and it wasn't backlit. Well, Samsung has just fixed one of those problems. 

Yesterday Samsung dropped a slightly updated version of the Chromebook Pro onto its site, listed as "Samsung Chromebook Pro with Backlit Keyboard." So far as we can tell from the specifications listed, everything is identical between the two models, save the addition of a backlit keyboard.

Samsung built a smartphone that doesn’t connect to the internet

Friday, April 13th, 2018

Most of a smartphone's "smarts" come from its data connection. Without access to the internet—and, therefore, access to things like third-party apps—a smartphone is really just a dumbphone with a touchscreen. By all appearances, that's exactly what Samsung's built with its new Galaxy J2 Pro: a smartphone that supports calls and texts, but with no data connectivity. 

The Galaxy J2 Pro is being pushed for students and older folks, so the lack of data is a marketable advantage.

Samsung has been working on a foldable smartphone for a while now, with the device expected to ship in December of this year. According to a report from Korea's ETNews, Huawei wants to beat Samsung to the punch.
