Cinemood is a Pint-sized Projector for Kids, and some Adults

This pint-sized handheld projector may look like retro technology especially for those who grew up in the 1980’s and 90’s with some sort of kiddie projector that could be projected to the ceiling to view photo slides or selected kid’s movies. But Cinemood is a different projector and is coming off a successful Indiegogo campaign […]

Samsung Galaxy S8 to Be First Gigabit LTE Phone

Samsung and Qualcomm today said the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be the first handsets to ship with Gigabit LTE capabilities. The high-speed data connection is possible thanks in part to the Snapdragon 835 processor and accompanying X16 LTE modem. Together with Qualcomm’s TruSignal adaptive antenna tuning technology, 4×4 MIMO, carrier aggregation and 256 QAM, the S8 and S8+ will feature the fastest-possible cellular data speeds. AT&T and T-Mobile said the S8 will be able to take advantage of these higher speeds on their pre-5G networks later this year.

DeX is similar in concept to Microsoft’s Continuum product. For the S8 and S8+, the DeX includes HDMI, USB, Bluetooth, Ethernet, and cooling functions.

Pricing and availability of the DeX are to be announced at a later date.

Samsung's Bixby Is Far More than A Voice Assistant for the Galaxy S8

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones feature Bixby, a voice-based user interface developed by Samsung. It’s more advanced than a simple voice assistant, as it voice-enables every function of an app. At its core, anything you can do with touch on the phone you can do with voice through Bixby. That means opening apps, but then also selecting menu items or other on-screen controls within those apps. Bixby is also able to take advantage of the camera for what Samsung calls Bixby Vision. It can translate languages, read business cards, recognize landmarks, and read QR codes. Samsung said it developed Bixby in order to minimize friction between the user and the phone in terms of how voice commands are issued and understood. Samsung calls Bixby a user interface that relies on artificial intelligence. Samsung adapted Bixby’s ability to listen and understand commands based on how people speak, rather than force people to issue specific commands. Bixby embraces something it calls “completeness” — meaning if an app is Bixby enabled, Bixby will be able to interact with nearly every task that app is capable of completing. Bixby is contextual, which means it will work seamlessly in voice mode or touch screen mode without forcing people to start over or lose their place within a command sequence. Last, Bixby will include cognitive tolerance, or the ability to “understand commands with incomplete information and execute the commanded task to the best of its knowledge.” The Galaxy S8 and S8+ each include a dedicated Bixby button. Owners can press the Bixby button and issue the command they want without first unlocking the phone. Samsung says a small subset of apps on the Galaxy S8 are Bixby-enabeld at launch, though it expects to add more over time. The company will release an SDK so third-party developers can add Bixby functionality to their own apps.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ Go for Broke

Samsung today announced the Galaxy S8 and S8+, its flagship smartphones for 2017. The phones marry aluminum frames to curved glass panels as they adopt what Samsung calls its Infinity Display. The Infinity Display moves from the industry standard 16:9 aspect ratio to a taller 18.5:9 ratio with 2,960 by 1,440 pixels. The devices share nearly all features other than size and battery capacity. Where the S8 has a 5.8-inch display and 3,000mAh battery, the S8+ boasts a massive 6.2-inch screen and 3,500mAh battery. The phones see Samsung drop the physical home button that has long adorned the front of its handsets in favor of on-screen controls and a virtual home button that’s unmarked in the area below the screen. This allowed Samsung to reduce bezels along the top, sides, and bottom edges, meaning the front is 83% display. Samsung says the displays are mobile HDR certified and offer more room for multitasking. Core features include Snapdragon 835 processors with 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, and support for memory cards. The phones are rated IP68 for protection against water and dust. They include rear-mounted fingerprint readers, front-mounted iris scanners, as well as wireless and rapid charging. The main camera has a 12-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization and an aperture of f/1.7. The front camera has an 8-megapixel sensor and also an aperture of f/1.7 with autofocus and face detection. Ports include USB-C and 3.5mm headphone jack. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ run Android 7 Nougat with Samsung’s new Bixby voice-enabled user interface, as well as improved Samsung Health, Samsung Connect, and Samsung Knox apps. The U.S. version will come in black, silver, or purple. The phone is expected to go on sale next month. Pricing will be set by carriers.

  • A few hours to wait for the Galaxy S8

    A few hours to wait for the Galaxy S8

    Well, today is the day. It happens at some point every year. Not that day, the other one – the announcement of the next Samsung Galaxy S, probably named as the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+. Notice that all indications are that the Edge moniker has been dropped?

    First off, if you want to watch the announcement live, it will happen at 4PM (U.K. time) today. Just click here to join us.

    Would you believe that the first Samsung Galaxy S was released back in 2010? For a lot of people, between that original Galaxy S and the S2, it was their first real taste of Android.

    What do we think we know? Well, first of all, Samsung has gone all-in on the idea of a ‘bezel-less’ display, with more screen-to-body ratio than ever. It may or may not have branding around the Edge style, called an Infinity Display. We’ve also heard that Samsung will remove the now-iconic home button and go with on-screen buttons. Who knew that was an option? Oh, wait. That’s been an option for years.

    A few hours to wait for the Galaxy S8

    In addition, we’re pretty sure that both iterations of the Galaxy S8 will be rocking the Snapdragon 835 chipset in some markets. What we don’t know is whether the UK will get that variant, as it has been a US-only release before for some handsets. Otherwise, we will be seeing the Exynos 8895 processor, and the Exynos range has proven itself very capable.

    Sizing is supposedly 5.7 inches for the S8 standard, with the S8+ coming in at 6.2 inches, and obviously both devices are finally using USB-C for a connector.

    Will the Galaxy S8 and S8+ also use an 18:9 screen ratio as per the LG G6? We’ve only got a few hours to find out. If you want to catch the news as it happens, then you’ll be able to watch Samsung’s livestream here. Don’t forget to read all the build up and Galaxy S8 leaks we’ve covered so far.
