January security patch now arriving on the Galaxy S5 in Europe

The factory unlocked variant of the Galaxy S5 is the latest smartphone in Samsung’s lineup to receive this month’s security patch in Europe. The upgrade, which weighs in at approximately 30MB and transports a flurry of fixes for bugs present in the Android operating system and the firm’s budget-friendly, flagship and former flagship devices, started making its way to the handset earlier today.It should come as no surprise to hear that the upgrade is making the rounds in stages. To see if it’s ready for your unit, simply head into Settings » About Device » Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can always wait until you receive a notification prompting you to install the update, but you’ll need to have at least 50% of battery to initiate the installation process.Read more: Verizon releases January security update for the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy S5

Samsung might be preparing to launch a variant of the Galaxy S8 with 6GB of RAM

Over the course of the past few weeks, the rumor mill has been spinning at warp speed with regards to what Samsung has in store for its next-generation flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S8. We’ve already heard that the handset is destined to sport a Snapdragon 835 CPU, but a reliable tipster is now claiming that it’ll also be available in two storage sizes — 64GB and 128GB — with varying amounts of RAM — 4GB and 6GB, respectively — when it launches in China and South Korea.S8 4/6GB+64/128GB— 萌萌的电教 (@mmddj_china) January 31, 2017Prior to this revelation, speculation hinted towards a variant of the Galaxy S8 launching with 256GB of internal storage on board and a colossal 8GB of RAM. The tipster, who operates under the handle @mmddj_china on Twitter, has reportedly heard from their sources that this won’t be the case and that the only variant that’ll be released in Europe, North America and South America will be the 4GB/64GB version — so it looks like those hoping for a high-capacity mode…

Nougat Tip: Enable ‘tap to take selfies’ on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge

In Android 6.0, the front camera on Samsung devices would allow you to take selfies by tapping anywhere on the screen instead of reaching for the shutter button or the volume keys. If you have upgraded to Nougat on your Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 edge recently (especially if you wiped your phone clean after the upgrade), you might have noticed that this feature no longer works. Don’t worry – it’s not a bug, and the feature has simply been turned off.To be able to take pictures by tapping on the screen, open the camera app, then click the gear icon to go into the camera settings. Here, under the Front Camera section, tap Ways to take pictures. Here, enable the Tap to take pictures option. You should now be able to use the entire screen as the shutter button when you’re taking selfies. With Nougat, this feature is in your hands, so you can choose to turn it off if you so desire.Click here for more Nougat tips for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, and check out this video to see all the new …

Verizon releases January security update for the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy S5

Samsung has gradually been rolling out the January security maintenance update to compatible handsets over the past few weeks directly and through its carrier partners. Verizon is now following through by releasing said security patch for the Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Note Edge and the Galaxy S5. Just yesterday, Sprint released the same patch for the Galaxy S5 on its network as well.The January security patch comes in at just under 30MB and brings fixes for 67 Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) in Android OS as well as 28 security patches that are exclusive to Galaxy handsets. The idea behind these monthly security updates is to ensure that these Android-powered devices offer users the best possible software security at all times.Verizon is now rolling out software version MMB29M.N910VVRS2CQA1, MMB29M.N915VVRS2CQA1 and MMB29M.G900VVRS2DQA1 for the Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge and the Galaxy S5 respectively.

Galaxy Tab S3 specs and price revealed in new report

A new report out of Korea today “confirms” that the Galaxy Tab S3 is going to be unveiled by Samsung at the Mobile World Congress 2017 late next month. The report also shares the specs and price of Samsung’s upcoming flagship Android tablet. This tablet is the successor to the Galaxy Tab S2 that Samsung first released in Korea back in August 2015. It’s likely going to be the only flagship product from Samsung at MWC 2017 given that it has already confirmed that the Galaxy S8 won’t be launched at this event.According to the report, the 9.6-inch Galaxy Tab S3 features a 2048×1536 pixel resolution display with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor under the hood coupled with 4GB of RAM. It’s said to be available in both LTE and Wi-Fi only models with a 12-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera. Android 7.0 Nougat will come pre-installed. The Galaxy Tab S3 is also said to be thinner than its predecessor.The tablet has already received all of the relevant certifications, it was recently…

Report suggests that the Galaxy S8 may sport a 3,250mAh battery

If a new report originating from South Korea is anything to go by, it would appear that Samsung has provided its battery suppliers with an updated production roadmap, which includes 3,250mAh and 3,750mAh cells; leading many to believe that they’re the respective batteries that’ll power the much-anticipated Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.While there’s nothing in the way of evidence to support this claim, we’re not going to rule it out entirely as it certainly seems feasible. The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge sport 3,000mAh and 3,600mAh cells, so it’s only to be expected that Samsung will grace their successors with an incremental capacity upgrade.As usual, only time will tell. Fortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll have to wait too much longer to find out more, though. Samsung’s expected to take the wraps off the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus at a dedicated event on March 29, with a worldwide release expected to follow in mid-April.

Nougat Launcher app for Samsung Z1, Z2, and Z3 lands at Tizen Store

Tizen is, compared to the likes of Android, a “baby” OS, and it’s not surprising to see that some Tizen users have more than just a little respect and admiration for Tizen’s more massive mobile “cousin.” Google has released Nougat for the Pixel and Pixel XL as well as its current Nexus devices, and Samsung has started pushing out Google’s latest sweet treat to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge for China, UK, France, Malaysia, South Korea, UAE, and Russia. Even now, though, Tizen users won’t get to enjoy Nougat on their handsets.Well, maybe that’s fudging the truth just a bit.A new app has arrived in the Tizen Store called “Nougat Launcher app” that is designed to bring a little (note the words “a little”) Nougat design to your Samsung Z1, Z2, or Z3 handset. The Nougat Launcher app brings a Googlicious theme that looks reminiscent of a few Marshmallow themes you may have seen in Samsung’s Theme Store on an Android-powered handset, but, aside from the basic look, the icon design is still…
