Samsung’s beefier Galaxy S8 leaks in new video

Galaxy S8 Active Rumors

The Galaxy S8 is one of the best-looking phones that you can buy right now. A simple trick like stretching the display across almost the entire front side of the handset did wonders for a phone that already looked amazing.

But good things don’t always come in pairs, and Samsung is about to launch a Galaxy S8 version that’s not going to be nearly as pretty as the original.

Galaxy Note 8 Rumors

The Galaxy Note 8 will be the first Samsung flagship handset to feature a dual lens camera on the back, capable of similar tricks as Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus. Reports said that Samsung wanted to equip the Galaxy S8 with a dual lens shooter on the back but ultimately decided against it. However, the dual lens camera will be the new Note’s signature feature, and a reputable analyst has new details about it.

Galaxy Note 8 Release Date

In a rather bizarre move last week, Samsung revealed that its next big “Unpacked” press conference will be held in New York City on August 23rd. Why is that bizarre? Samsung’s mobile boss already confirmed that the Galaxy Note 8 will go on sale in September, so fans now know beyond a shadow of a doubt that this hotly anticipated smartphone will be the subject of Samsung’s event next month. Samsung is currently pushing the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ with killer promotions, but now we all know something new and better is just around the corner.

How do we know it’s better, you ask? If all of the previous leaks and rumors couldn’t convince you, perhaps this brand new one will.

The Galaxy Note 8 might still have one surprise left in store

Galaxy Note 8 Release Date

In less than a month, Samsung will officially announce the Galaxy Note 8, a phone that’s hardly a well-kept secret. Meant to restore the Note line to glory after last year’s Note 7 debacle, the Galaxy Note 8 is expected to be a variation of the Galaxy S8, which is easily one of the best Android smartphones you can buy right now.

The new Note will come with stylus features built into the software, and it’ll ship with an S Pen accessory just like every Note that preceded it. Other than that, the Galaxy Note 8 will have only one feature that’s not found on the Galaxy S8, and that’s a dual rear camera. But it appears Samsung may also have one other surprise for buyers looking to buy a new Note instead of a Galaxy S this year.

Apple working on its own OLED technology to reduce reliance on Samsung

Apple has purchased sophisticated equipment to set up its own research and development facility in Taiwan to develop its own OLED technology in order to reduce its dependence on Samsung Electronics for iPhone OLED panels.

According to a repot Monday from Taiwanese trade publication DigiTimes, the Cupertino giant has purchased chemical vapor deposition (CVD) machines from Korea-based Sunic System to build a 2.5G OLED panel line.

In-house OLEDs will allow Apple to differentiate its products from other handsets that use Samsung-built OLED panels. According to a Chinese-language Commercial Times report cited by DigiTimes, the move will break the dominance of Japan-based Canon Kokki, currently the primary supplier of CVD machines that ships the bulk of its output to Samsung.

“Samsung has bought five sets of OLED manufacturing equipment from Canon Tokki so far in 2017 and has signed contracts to buy five out of ten such machines to be rolled out by the Japan-based machinery company in 2018,” said the Commercial Times.

LG Display also purchased these machines but Apple has yet to validate its OLED panels.
