Galaxy S9 rumors are in full swing, but dbrand decided to really get on top of things today. They’re already selling skins and wraps for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S9, and we’re still about a month away from an official announcement.
The Galaxy S9’s official announcement from Samsung is just around the corner, but when will you actually be able to buy one? Well, if you’re in South Korea, you won’t have to wait long at all. Samsung will be opening up pre-orders for their device starting on March 2nd, if the latest rumor is accurate.
Google’s Pixel 2 saw a boost in sales on Verizon’s network in the last few months of the year, coinciding with a massive push in marketing and promotions for the device according to a new in-depth report. And yeah, I get it. Google sold more phones during the holiday season, so did everyone else. What’s the big deal?
Well, there’s a little more to the report besides Q4 = more sales.
We’re very close to Samsung’s official Unpacked event for the Galaxy S9, which also means we’re right in the middle of rumor season. And, courtesy of Evan Blass, it looks like we have the biggest leak yet, confirming just about everything you’d want to know about Samsung’s upcoming pair of devices.
LG has announced their 2017 financials as a company, and for the most part, they did pretty well. Their home appliances and television division were both strong performers for the fiscal year, bringing in strong profits for the company. 2017 also saw LG reach their highest annual sales ever.
They pulled in $55.4 billion in revenue, increasing nearly 11% from 2016. Operating profits were at $2.2 billion.
The Huawei Mate 10 Pro will finally be coming to the US despite a really shaky launch with a ton of problems. AT&T was supposed to carry the device but backed at the last minute just before CES. It was a bad look for Huawei, but since they already had plans for an AT&T model, they’re rolling with it.
After launching a scavenger hunt yesterday where we learned that I/O 2018 would be held from May 8-10, it seems that Google has more information on the Developer Conference for us. The search giant has revealed that tickets to I/O 2018 will be available to purchase from February 2nd.
We already knew that Samsung would launch the Galaxy S9 during MWC 2018 in Barcelona thanks to a leak by Evan Blass, with February 26 being given as the actual launch date. That date is technically correct, but only if you live in Seoul, Korea thanks to the time zones involved. If you are in Europe, then the launch event will actually be held on February 25, as confirmed by Samsung itself.
In recent years, companies like Huawei and LG have used MWC to launch their new spring flagship smartphones. With Samsung usually holding off until later, MWC announcements gave these companies an opportunity to grab the spotlight and try to get a sales jump on Samsung. With Samsung moving their release schedule up for 2018, both LG and Huawei are bowing out of MWC 2018 in terms of flagship smartphones either out of a concern with going head-to-head against Samsung or due to their own internal strife.
We’re very close to an official Galaxy S9 announcement, which means the rumor mill is running at 100% capacity to squeeze everything in before Samsung takes the wraps off their next phone. This time, though, the rumor about the Galaxy S9’s camera is coming straight from Samsung.
Have you ever looked at the public WiFi options in your phone settings and wished you could see what sort of speed you could expect to experience from each of them before you connect? Well, Google has taken notice of your plight and flipped a switch to enable you to do just that, with the small requirement that your phone should be running Android 8.1 Oreo.
Last summer an exciting, if mysterious, handset that could display holographic images became available to preorder from RED, a reputable camera equipment company that had no previous experience in manufacturing a smartphone. Available in Titanium for $1,595 or Aluminum for $1,195, little else was known about Hydrogen One. Until now.
Over the past couple years we have watched smartphone manufacturers struggle with the placement of their fingerprint sensors. Some put them on the front of the devices where home buttons used to reside and others put them on the back. That latter option has become more common as smartphone design has moved to displays taking up the entire front of a phone leaving no room for physical buttons. The solution to that is a fingerprint sensor built into the display, a solution that has been more difficult to get to market than some may have thought. That may change with the unlikely release of the Vivo X20 Plus as the first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
