First Galaxy Note 20 leak reveals major hint about its design

Image
Samsung is due to launch another flagship smartphone later this year, it will be the successor to last year's Galaxy Note 10. Initially believed to be called the Galaxy Note 11, seeing as how Samsung has jumped straight to the Galaxy S20 branding, there's a good chance that its next phablet may be launched as the Galaxy Note 20.This Galaxy Note 20 leak has dropped a major hint about its design, particularly that of the top-tier Galaxy Note 20 model. Who knows if Samsung ends up using the "Ultra" branding for that as well.Galaxy Note 20 leak drops a big design hintTipster @rquandt has posted some images of a mold for an inlay of the Galaxy Note 11+ (possibly Note 20 Ultra) LED View Cover. The LED View Cover is a staple accessory for Samsung's flagships so it would make sense for the company to offer one for the Galaxy Note 20 as well.The aspect ratio could be off, he cautions, but that's not what stands out here. The massive cutout for the camera housing is im…

Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are still getting security updates

Image
It was almost exactly four years ago that the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge went on sale in markets around the world. The S7 and S7 edge stopped getting major Android updates with Android 8.0 Oreo, in keeping with Samsung's software update policy for Galaxy devices. However, the Korean giant continues to support the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge with security updates to this day, and it has released the March security patch for the two phones in quite a few countries in the last week or so.The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge continue to be in the quarterly schedule for security updates four years after launch, though there's a good chance that will change starting next month. That's because Samsung's policy dictates that every flagship get monthly security updates for three years and once every three months in the fourth year. From the fifth year onward, security updates only arrive when a critical security vulnerability is discovered and needs fixing.The March 2020 security updat…

The one major reason I don’t use Samsung Internet

Image
I've been using Galaxy devices since 2010, when Samsung launched the first Galaxy S. Android, and many Android apps, were an unoptimized mess in 2010, but the Samsung Internet browser stood out as one of the most polished apps back then. Samsung's browser app ran amazingly smooth thanks to its use of hardware acceleration (i.e.: it offloaded graphical tasks to the GPU for better performance) at a time when the Android OS didn't officially support hardware acceleration, and that meant Samsung Internet ran better than every other browser app that was available at the time.But, just a couple of years later, Google launched Chrome for Android devices, and with the popularity the internet giant's browser had been gaining on desktop computers, it wasn't long before many shifted to Chrome on their Android smartphone as well. I was one of them, and I've stuck with Google Chrome on both my desktop PC and my phones for more than half a decade. Samsung Internet has contin…

New Galaxy S20 update brings improved camera, April security patch

Image
The most recent firmware update that was released for the Galaxy S20 series brought much needed improvements to the autofocus performance of the Galaxy S20 Ultra camera, and it also included some general camera improvements for the other two Galaxy S20 models. Now, Samsung has released a new update for its latest flagship in Hong Kong and Taiwan, once again targeting camera optimization.The update sports build number G98x0ZHU1ATCT and, in addition to camera performance improvements, it packs the April 2020 security patch. Now, it's worth mentioning that the updates Samsung releases for its flagships in markets like China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan are often different from what it releases in the rest of the world, so it's unclear if this new update will also make an appearance in other markets. The April patch will no doubt arrive at some point for all countries, but we will have to wait and see if the camera improvements will be included in the update for those countries as well.…

Although Samsung started rolling out the Android 10 update to the Galaxy A50 in India and some other markets, users in other regions such as the US are not so lucky. Today, the South Korean firm has released the March 2020 Android security patch to the unlocked variant of the Galaxy A50 in the US.The OTA (over the air) update has a file size of 128.34MB and it bumps up the firmware version of the Galaxy A50 to A505U1UEU5ATC1. Apart from the March security patch, the update also brings the usual assortment of bug fixes and stability improvements. Unfortunately, the update is still based on Android 9. We had hoped that the phone would receive the Android 10 update this month, but it looks like users would have to wait just a bit longer.The March 2020 security update was released to the Galaxy A50 in various markets, including Israel, earlier this month. If you have an unlocked variant of the Galaxy A50 in the US, you should be able to see the update notification on your phone's scre…

Image
After announcing its plans to close one of its two LCD production lines in South Korea last year, Samsung Display has now announced that it will end the production of all LCD panels. The company will close all of its LCD manufacturing facilities in China and South Korea by the end of this year due to falling demand.Samsung's display manufacturing arm mentioned that it would fulfill all the current orders for LCD panels by the end of 2020 and supply the panels to its customers without any issues. In October, the company had announced its plans to invest KRW 13.1 trillion ($10.72 billion) to upgrade its LCD production lines to make QLED panels.While Samsung plans to upgrade both of its dedicated LCD plants in Korea to QLED plants, nothing has been said about the company's plans for two LCD panel manufacturing facilities in China. The company has been investing in the research, development, and production of Quantum Dot OLED panels to compete with LG in the TV space.The South Kor…
