About a week ago, Samsung decided to recall every unit that has been sold of its latest phablet offering, the Galaxy Note 7, due to reported claims (at least 35 separate cases) of overheating and even exploding battery issues. Some however pointed out that the decision by the South Korean tech giant to voluntarily recall the Galaxy Note 7 may not be enough because apparently, some units are still being displayed in store shelves.
T-Mobile has teamed up with Samsung in order to debut a couple of new Galaxy mobile devices -- the Galaxy On5 smartphone and the Galaxy Tab E tablet. Both devices come with budget friendly prices, and should help in giving subscribers of T-Mobile a more expanded range of device choices that are affordable.
Samsung is offering yet another native mobile app, and as a matter of fact, has already listed it on the Google Play Store. The Samsung Music app has now been made available by the South Korean tech giant on the Play Store. But it should be noted though that the mobile app is still in beta, which may be a bummer to some. However, it does make it easier for Samsung to launch updates to individual apps without needing to deploy new updates to the whole software.
You may have already heard by now that Samsung has finally formally introduced its flagship devices for this year. A day before the annual Mobile World Congress is set to start in the city of Barcelona in Spain, the South Korean tech giant has unveiled its Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge devices.
But wait -- these banned devices are not actually available in the market anymore -- well, mostly. United States District Judge Lucy Koh has decided that Samsung will not be allowed to sell specific models of its smartphones in the US. These handsets were found to be infringing on patents owned by rival phone maker Apple, who had filed for a motion for permanent injunction against a certain number of Samsung smartphones.
We tackled Apple earlier, and this time around, we take a look into Samsung’s 2016 prospects. First of all, the South Korean tech giant is one of the biggest electronics manufacturing companies in the world, so obviously, Samsung is not just about smartphones. But this year, the world has seen pretty how much the term mobile has expanded in scope way beyond the usual smartphones and tablet devices.
