You wouldn’t want to miss this deal on the original Gear VR headset

Samsung first released a Gear VR headset that was only meant for developers or enthusiasts and it was branded as such. About a year back it released the consumer edition of the Gear VR for $99. The Gear VR has been updated since then but if you own a recent Samsung flagship and would like to experience VR on the cheap, Amazon is offering a deal today that you wouldn’t want to miss. It’s offering the original Gear VR headset for $59.99 – that’s a $40 discount.Bear in mind that this headset won’t work with the Galaxy Note 7 since the latest flagship features a USB Type-C port. However, it will work nicely with the Galaxy S7 series, the Galaxy S6 series and the Galaxy Note 5. This deal is available for today only and through Amazon so it will be in your best interest to not waste any time in picking one up. Chances are the online retailer is going to sell out of these discounted units by the end of the day. If you’d rather have the latest Gear VR headset that comes with slight improvemen…

Galaxy Note 7 shipments have been delayed for quality testing

Samsung has confirmed today that the Galaxy Note 7 shipments have been delayed as it’s conducting further quality testing on its new flagship smartphone. The company said in a statement that “Shipments of the Galaxy Note 7 are being delayed due to additional tests being conducted for product quality.” It did not provide any details on the tests being conducted and the markets that will be affected by this delay.There have been some reports recently of the Galaxy Note 7 exploding while it was being charged, the reports primarily came from South Korea and some other markets. Samsung has not confirmed whether this is the cause of the shipment delay and subsequent additional testing. There have also been reports of some Galaxy Note 7 units crashing and getting stuck in boot loops for no apparent reason. If the quality control problems are confirmed and Samsung has to take steps to rectify them it will deal a significant blow to the company as it’s counting on the Galaxy Note 7′s sales to …

Sheep View: Where there’s a wool, there’s a way

Image
Over the past three months, Durita Andreassen and a few friendly sheep equipped with solar-powered cameras strapped to their woolly backs set out to collect imagery of the Faroe Islands for Street View. The 18 Faroe Islands are home to just 50,000 people, but — fittingly for a country whose name means “Sheep Island” — there are 70,000 sheep roaming the green hills and volcanic cliffs of the archipelago. So when Durita decided to document the country for Street View, sheep weren’t a baaad place to start.

Sheep View 360

When we herd about the Sheep View project, we thought it was shear brilliance. So we decided to help the Faroese by supplying them with a Street View trekker and 360 cameras via our Street View camera loan program. Last week, the Google Maps team arrived in the Faroe Islands to help train and equip the local community to capture even more (but slightly less woolly) Street View imagery.


Now that the Faroe Islands is supplied with a Trekker and 360 cameras, residents and to…

Image
Samsung launched the latest tablet in its Galaxy Tab A (2016) series about four months ago. The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is a mid-range tablet that’s available in both Wi-Fi only and cellular models. Just last week we reported that Samsung has a new variant of this tablet in the pipeline that features the new S Pen which was introduced with the Galaxy Note 7. We have now obtained some images of the Galaxy Tab A 2016 with S Pen that shows off the tablet in all its glory.Samsung doesn’t seem to have made any major changes to the specifications of this tablet so expect the same 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage.

From this, we learned that the service has been used to process nearly 100 million unique transactions and store over 4 million registered membership cards.However, many questions went unanswered in the infographic, such as which the markets that were the quickest to adopt the service and what we can expect from Samsung Pay in the near future — so, to clear up the confusion, the South Korean company has taken to its official Newsroom to share an interview that was conducted with the platform’s lead designers an developers.It’s definitely worth checking out if you’d like to find out the answers to the aforementioned questions and many more.

Gear VR users will soon be able to fight Minecraft bosses in virtual reality

Image
Minecraft for Gear VR was released a few months ago even before the game received support for the Oculus VR headset and now developer Mojang has confirmed that it’s going to get the much awaited “bosses update.” Minecraft is best known for enabling players to build whatever they want out of blocks but it also has a Survival Mode that makes things very interesting once the sun goes down or players find themselves in a dark corner. Mojang has confirmed that Survival Mode is getting support for the Gear VR meaning players will be able to have boss fights in virtual reality.Aside from bosses, the latest Minecraft update also adds ocean monuments, blocks and beacons. The Wither, Ender dragon and Elder Guardian are the three original Minecraft bosses and The Wither and Elder Guardian are making their way to Gear VR. Mojang hasn’t confirmed when this update is going to be out for the Gear VR edition of Minecraft. It says that we should expect this free update to drop “soon-ish.”

Samsung is building a new battery factory in Hungary

Samsung’s battery-making arm Samsung SDI has confirmed that it’s going to set up a new battery factory in Hungary. It’s going to invest $358 million in the factory so that it can supply the auto industry in Europe with lithium ion batteries. With car manufacturers gradually shifting towards hybrid and full electric powertrains the future looks bright particularly for battery manufacturers like Samsung SDI.Samsung SDI already operates battery manufacturing plants in China and South Korea. Its European plant is scheduled to open in the second half of 2018 near Budapest and will have the capacity to produce batteries for 50,000 cars per year. The company’s clients include BMW which uses a Samsung battery in its BMW i3 electric vehicle. Samsung SDI says that this new factory in Europe is going to help the company cut down on logistics costs and quickly keep up with demand from European companies as most of them have manufacturing bases around Hungary.This can be seen as yet another move b…

Galaxy A8 (2016) makes a pitstop at the FCC

Earlier today, an unannounced smartphone with Galaxy branding made a pitstop at the United States of America’s official certification authority, the FCC. Unfortunately, the supporting documentation doesn’t reveal anything about the device other than that it carries the model number SM-A810. This leads us to believe that we’re looking at the revamped model of the Galaxy A8, which received Bluetooth certification a little over three weeks ago.If a recent benchmark test is any indication, it looks like the Galaxy A8 (2016) will sport a 5.7-inch Full HD Display, a 2.1GHz Exynos 7420 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable internal storage, a 16MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP selfie shooter and a 3,050mAh non-removable battery. It’s also expected to ship running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, but is believed to be eligible for the Android 7.0 Nougat update.

Another Galaxy Note 7 explodes while charging

Image
The Galaxy Note 7 has barely started making its way into the hands of customers, but that hasn’t stopped us from learning about a hidden party trick it has up its sleeve. Although I’m guessing that consumers would prefer it if their shiny new $850 smartphone didn’t carry out this particular stunt as there’s an extremely good chance that it won’t survive to tell the tale.What I’m referring to here is the Note 7′s ability to spontaneously burst into flames. The first report of the device randomly exploding appeared online last week when images were published of a Galaxy Note 7 that blew up in China while connected to a microUSB to USB Type-C converter. It’s currently unclear whether the owner was using the official adapter or a third-party offering, but it’s certainly a cause for concern.At the time, we were hoping it was an isolated incident as if it turned out to be widespread it would put a lot of people in danger. However, it’s now looking like it’s a major flaw with the handset’s h…
