Samsung may have been hoping that with the new year, it could be given a fresh start regarding its Galaxy Note lineup of phablets. But lest it forget, its Galaxy Note 7 troubles are not exactly over yet. And part of the blame is a certain number of mobile users who stubbornly still choose to hold on to their Galaxy Note 7 units.
Among mobile users based in the United States, perhaps the most popular smartphones of Samsung are those that belong to the company’s Galaxy S lineup of devices. But as expected of the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices, the South Korean phone maker has plenty more other series of handsets. Americans may have heard of the Galaxy A range or the Galaxy J range, but Samsung actually has other less well known brands.
According to a report published by Reuters, Samsung will be releasing the full results of its investigation into what caused its Galaxy Note 7 device to catch fire or even explode this coming January 23rd. The Reuters news report also stated that the phablet’s overheating problems are likely tied to battery issues, and not to any hardware or software aspect.
The biggest seller of smartphone devices in the whole world recently launch a couple of different ads that showcase its brand new AMOLED display screens (view them here and here). Sure, new AMOLED displays are something to look forward to, but even more exciting is the mysterious handset that appears in the two separate ads.
Two of the most prominent brands in the world of mobile are looking to bring fully functioning foldable smartphone devices to life as early as this year. As reported by the Korea Herald, South Korea’s biggest phone makers, Samsung and LG, both have plans to release bendable handsets in 2017.
Samsung has just recently launched iOS mobile apps for its Gear S3, Gear S2, and Gear Fit2 smartwatches, effectively bringing iOS compatibility to its wearable devices. This means that owners of these gadgets can now pair their iPhone device (that is, if they have one) with any one of these Samsung smartwatches.
The brand new year has afforded the world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices a chance at redemption after a somewhat epic failure in the last few months, and Samsung is making the most of the opportunity.
AT&T is launching a new special offer for new and existing subscribers this week, specifically a buy one get one promo on the major US wireless carrier’s best selling mobile devices. In this deal, customers who decide to purchase a brand new smartphone will get another device and only get to pay for one unit. This offer is good until December 24th.
The biggest wireless carrier in America is going to brick its Galaxy Note 7 devices after all, but only after the busy holiday season. About a week ago, Samsung had announced that it was planning to roll out a particular software update that will make all remaining units of its embattled phablet essentially unusable.
