  1. Last month Samsung unveiled its latest flagship smartphones - our hands on with the Galaxy S9+ can be found here - which not only fixed several issues users had with the previous iteration but introduced a number of new additions. Among the changes were the introduction of the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and a Super Speed Dual Pixel sensor which promised a huge improvement in low-light photography. Beyond that, the device comes with the ability to capture slow motion video at 960fps, gaining a significant advantage over its closest competitors. However, it would seem that it's not going all too well for several early adopters. After a growing number of reports started to surface online - suggesting that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ suffered from dead zones on their displays - Samsung officially responded to these reports. According to the company, this specific issue is being investigated: At Samsung, customer satisfaction is core to our business and we aim to deliver the best possible experience. We are looking into a limited number of reports of Galaxy S9/S9+ touchscreen responsiveness issues. We are working with affected customers and investigating. We encourage any customer with questions to contact us directly at 1-800-SAMSUNG. Several users noted that they could fix the specific issue with a factory reset, or by increasing the sensitivity of the display. This isn't the first time smartphones have suffered from touch display issues, with the iPhone X suffering from a similar issue when subject to colder temperatures. OnePlus faced similar issues, but this was mostly due to the company intentionally installing the display upside down. For those who aren't as lucky using the suggested workarounds, it is recommended to contact Samsung directly to exchange the device. Currently, it is unclear whether or not this issue can be fixed with a simple software patch, or is a result of a significant hardware flaw. Neowin.net

  3. MWC 2018 was jam-packed with exciting tech, which we had a lot of fun experiencing and reporting on. Hopefully you took just as much enjoyment reading our coverage and hands-on impressions. Just in case you missed something from the busy schedule, we have prepared a quick rundown of all the highlights of the Barcelona venue. And just in case you prefer the more retro approach to things, here are some key points in writing as well: alcatel In keeping with its track record, the TCL company unleashed a slew of new devices complete with some confusing and open-to-change-upon-order specs sheets. To be fair, this year's lineup is a bit more premium than usual, with devices like the flagship alcatel 5 likely to end up in users hands even without a carrier contract deal. Joining its ranks are four alcatel 3 variants - the basic one, 3X, 3V and 3C, all rocking trendy new 18:9 panels. Even the entry-level actatel 1X gets to participate in the extra-tall display fun. Alcatel at MWC 2018 Huawei No real mobile announcements from the Chinese giant this year. Well, that does depend on your definition of mobile, since a new MediaPad M5 tablet did make an appearance, alongside a gorgeous, ultra-light MateBook X Pro laptop. ZTE ZTE's new additions to the budget-friendly Blade family can potentially make a big market splash, given their aggressive sub-$300 pricing. The Blade V9 and Blade V9 VITA promise premium looks, strong mid-ranger specs and a solid camera experience. ZTE also showcased the Tempo GO as a part of the Android Go initiative. ZTE Blade V9 and Blade V9 VITA hands-on Nokia HMD brought a full and rich roster of new devices to Barcelona. The nostalgia train is running on full steam, as the Finnish company officially resurrected the Sirocco branding, in its shiny new Nokia 8 Sirocco flagship. Surprisingly, it was not the only flagship product to appear on stage. Well, a bit debatable, since the Nokia 7 Plus is based on a Snapdragon 660, but they've packaged that in an exquisitely crafted aluminum body with ceramic-like finish. The same overall praise for build quality and bill of materials applies to the new Nokia 6 (2018) as well, refreshed for 2018. HMD has an Android Go offer as well in the retro-infused Nokia 1, complete with Xpress-on covers - another old-school Nokia branding brought back from the glorious days of yore. But all the exchangeable cases in the world pale in retro-coolness compared to the 2018 Nokia 8110 4G - reborn in Matrix-worthy black and banana yellow. Nokia 8 Sirocco, 7 Plus, and 8110 4G hands-on review Samsung As expected, after an avalanche of leaks, Samsung launched the S9 pair at this year's MWC. Design-wise, the Galaxy S9+ and Galaxy S9 are more of a refinement on their predecessors than anything else, but with a lot of extra features and goodies hiding underneath. Some highlights include a dual-aperture main camera for both phones, aided by a secondary snapper on the bigger S9+. [email protected] video recording and slow motion [email protected] are now possible with the new generation of chipsets from Qualcomm and Samsung themselves. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ hands-on review Sony A pair of exciting new flagships from the Japanese giant. Pretty controversial ones at that. The Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact feature a fresh new "Ambient Flow" design, a lot curvier than before, complete with 18:9 displays. Underneath, both are true powerhouses, built around the Snapdragon 845 and a refined version of Sony's familiar 19MP Motion Eye camera system. HDR recording and display panels are some of the other highlights in the new Xperia XZ2 pair. The Dynamic Vibration system is a peculiar novelty as well. Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact hands-on review Vivo Vivo managed to soak up quite a lot of the spotlight at this year's MWC with the APEX concept phone. It’s a unique device, or rather a unique tech demo (because it's what it is), for more than a few reasons. Thanks to new advancements in OLED technology, the APEX's 5.99-inch panel spans nearly the entirety of its front and also doubles as a speaker and earpiece. Plus, the company's next generation under-display fingerprint technology now spans the entire bottom half of the screen. To top it all off, the selfie camera pops-up when needed via a small motorized dome. If you haven't done so already, you need to check the vivo APEX out. Vivo APEX concept hands-on: a half-screen fingerprint scanner and a periscope camera Asus Asus also brought a full bag of new handsets to Barcelona, namely a fresh new Zenfone 5 line (not to be confused with the 2014 original). Asus is clearly shooting for feature-rich flagships on a budget with the Zenfone 5 and 5z. Both come with tall 19:9 panels, complete with an iPhone X-style notch, live animated emojis and a generous amount of AI sprinkled all over - a recipe worthy for 2018. With a notch less and some downgrades in internals here and there, the Zenfone 5 Lite still promises to deliver all the software goodies and revamped experience of its bigger sibling. And last, but not least, there is the slightly more traditional Zenfone Max (M1) - no AI treatment for this one, but plenty of juice from the 4,000 mAh battery. Asus Zenfone 5, 5z, 5 Lite hands-on review LG LG jumped hard on the AI bandwagon as well, releasing a new and ambitious in scope ThinkQ platform. To go along with it - a pair of devices, or should we say memory options for the V30, descriptively titled the LG V30S ThinQ and V30S+ ThinkQ, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of storage, respectively. The only other change is the duo of new colors. There wasn't really any new hardware to speak of in LG's "K" lineup either, although, technically, these were refreshed with 2018 versions as well. LG K10/K10+ (2018) and LG K8 (2018) hands-on at MWC So there you have it - the MWC 2018 at a glance. We're looking forward to a few other exciting announcements scheduled for later this month so consider this just the start of an exciting season. Gsmarena.com
  4. When we read Samsung’s patent about measuring blood pressure with an optical sensor, we imagined it will be used on smartwatches in the future. So imagine our surprise to find out that the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have just such a sensor. Besides blood pressure, the phone can measure your stress levels as well. Samsung also plans to expand Bixbi’s skills to allow it to judge the calories of a meal just by looking at it through the camera. This tech was co-developed with the University of California San Francisco in a collaboration dubbed My BP Lab. Users can opt into a three-week UCFS research study on the stress and how it impacts people throughout their day. They will answer questions on how their day went, how much they exercised and how they slept, this data will then be correlated to their blood pressure and stress levels. “That’s why we developed a revolutionary optical sensor in the Galaxy S9 and S9+. We are pleased to be partnering with UCSF to utilize this sensor and contribute to research that will provide our users with crucial and meaningful feedback about their health,” said Peter Koo, Senior VP and leader of the Health Service Team at Samsung Electronics.

  5. Samsung has just unpacked the new Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ flagship duo in Barcelona. The new devices are helming Samsung's 2018 smartphone portfolio with new hardware but old looks. Both S9 and S9+ retain the familiar glass-sandwich design with water-proofing, aluminum frame, curved Gorilla glasses, and everything. Samsung has trimmed the screen bezels a bit and thus both phones have insignificantly smaller footprints than their respective predecessors. The minor changes in the design include a well-hidden iris scanner, a properly placed fingerprint reader, and a changed grille for the bottom speaker. The Infinity Super AMOLED screens are here to stay, both with Quad HD resolution. The Galaxy S9 has a 5.8" big screen, while the Galaxy S9+ opts for a 6.2" unit - just like last year. Samsung promises even deeper blacks than before, whatever that means for an OLED screen. Both the Galaxy S9 and S9+ will run on the latest Exynos 9810 everywhere but North America and China. The new SoC has an octa-core processor with a pair of third-gen Mongoose core at 2.8GHz and a quartet of Cortex0A55 at 1.7GHz. There is an 18-core Mali-G72 GPU and 4GB (S9) or 6GB (S9+) of RAM. The latest Qualcomm chipset - Snapdragon 845 - will power the duo in North America in China. It has an octa-core Kryo 385 processor, Adreno 630 GPU, and the same RAM - 4 gigs for the S9 and 6 gigs on the S9+. Samsung Galaxy S9+ The camera is where the new Galaxies have seen the biggest lift. The 12MP main camera on both phones is now capable of variable aperture - you can choose between f/1.5 and f/2.4. There is optical stabilization, and dual-pixel phase-detect autofocus. Unfortunately, the LED flash is staying single for another year. The selfie shooter is borrowed straight from the S8 - an 8MP one with f/1.7 lens and autofocus. The Galaxy S9+ is exclusively getting a secondary telephoto camera - the same as on the Note8. It's a 12MP sensor with f/2.4 lens, OIS, and dual-pixel AF. Both smartphones support 4K at 60fps capturing in the new HEVC format, as well as 720p slow-mo recording at 960 fps - just like the most recent Sonys. One major difference between the Xperias and the Galaxy S9 smartphones is the automatic event detection - no more hit and misses of those precious moments. The slow-mo has lesser cool time, too, now it's just 2s. And finally, Samsung offers easy editing of those clips, including one-click gif export. Finally, both Galaxy S9 and S9+ come with a premium AKG by Harman stereo speaker setup with Dolby Atmos support. Samsung says those are 40% louder over the S8's speaker. The S9 duo runs on Android Oreo with the latest Grace UX. There is new support of AR Emojis, improved KNOX, and Intelligent Scan security making use of the iris scanner and face unlock at the same time. Samsung Galaxy S9 The batteries of the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are the same as on the S8 and S8+, no updates here. Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ will launch next month in Midnight Black, Coral Blue, Titanium Gray, Lilac Purple. Pricing, promotions, and exact availability is yet to be announced. Gsmarena.com
  6. Samsung starts mass production of its 30TB SAS SSD Samsung today announced in a press release that it has officially begun mass production of its latest Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) SSD - the PM1643 - which is squarely aimed at the next-generation of enterprise storage systems. These drives are built using the company's latest 512Gb V-NAND technology - in a 64-layer array -, in addition to offering an industry-first 1TB NAND flash package and 40GB of DRAM. This means that not only will it be able to meet demanding storage needs but will outperform the previous 15.36TB SSD - introduced back in March of 2016 - by a factor of two. Samsung Executive Vice President of Memory Sales & Marketing, Jaesoo Han commented on the increased focus by the company on the enterprise market: “With our launch of the 30.72TB SSD, we are once again shattering the enterprise storage capacity barrier, and in the process, opening up new horizons for ultra-high capacity storage systems worldwide, Samsung will continue to move aggressively in meeting the shifting demand toward SSDs over 10TB and at the same time, accelerating adoption of our trail-blazing storage solutions in a new age of enterprise systems.” The company explains that this achivement was made possible "by combining 32 of the new 1TB NAND flash packages, each comprised of 16 stacked layers of 512Gb V-NAND chips." As an example, the company points out that 5,700 5GB full HD movie files can be stored on a single 2.5-inch drive using these chips. Samsung also boasts of the performance these drives can deliver, with the PM1643 capable of hitting "up to" 400,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) in the company's own random read tests, and 50,000 IOPS in random write tests. Meanwhile, sequential speeds come in at 2,100MB/s for read and 1,700MB/s for write tests, per the company. According to Samsung, the new drive performs approximately four times better than a typical SATA SSD; as these drives are focussed on the enterprise, the company also noted that they offer a mean time between failures (MTBF) of two million hours. Although manufacturing already started on the 30.72TB SSDs back in January, this will be further expanded later this year to include capacities of 15.36TB, 7.68TB, 3.84TB, 1.92TB, 960GB, and 800GB; earlier this year the company also announced the SZ985 Z-SSD, which is tailor-made for high-performance computing (HPC) applications in the enterprise, with a capacity of 800GB.

  7. According to Consumer Reports, literally, millions of television sets which offer smart functionality via an underlying operating system could be vulnerable to a malicious attack due to ongoing vulnerabilities. The report is suggesting that millions of smart TVs around the world could theoretically be controlled by external influences if the internal vulnerabilities are exploited without the prior knowledge of the TV owner. The research into the topic has found that the problem is evident on televisions manufactured by Samsung and TCL, which currently sells sets around the world under the Roku brand. The testing discovered that very personal and financial details, such as bank data, couldn’t be obtained, but other acts were possible by remote hackers. It seems that anyone with the requisite knowledge to hack into one of these vulnerable TVs or streaming boxes would be able to perform actions such as changing the TV channel currently being watched, adjust the volume too high or low levels, and even play offensive or adult-rated content on the television set should they wish to do so. All of these actions and commands could be invoked from thousands of miles away on a remote basis due to the fact that the smart TVs are Internet connected and can be accessed and controlled as such. It probably shouldn’t come as any huge surprise that a device which is permanently connected to the internet, and which derives a lot of its features and functionality from that online connectivity, is actually susceptible to outside interference. It’s perfectly possible that households with smart TVs have actually refused any ability to connect those sets to an internal Wi-Fi network but it’s also reasonable to assume that those who have purchased a set with smart functionality would need that connection for accessing apps and services, such as Netflix or Spotify. And that’s where the problems can begin. The problem is said to arise from the fact that Roku’s video streaming software has an unsecured API in place which allows developers to bundle additional functionality, should they wish to do so. This is used for building remote control applications, which could be hijacked by those malicious individuals to take over the television set. Both companies are currently investigating the problem.

  8. Today, Mozilla is announcing a plan that grows collaboration with Microsoft, Google, and other industry leaders on MDN Web Docs. The goal is to consolidate information about web development for multiple browsers – not just Firefox. To support this collaboration, we’re forming a Product Advisory Board that will formalize existing relationships and guide our progress in the years to come. Why are we doing this? To make web development just a little easier. “One common thread we hear from web developers is that documentation on how to build for the cross-browser web is too fragmented,” said Daniel Appelquist, Director of Developer Advocacy at Samsung Internet and Co-Chair of W3C’s Technical Architecture Group. “I’m excited to be part of the efforts being made with MDN Web Docs to address this issue and to bring better and more comprehensive documentation to developers worldwide.” More than six million web developers and designers currently visit MDN Web Docs each month – and readership is growing at a spectacular rate of 40 percent, year over year. Popular content includes articles and tutorials on JavaScript, CSS and HTML, as well as detailed, comprehensive documentation of new technologies like Web APIs. Community contributions are at the core of MDN’s success. Thousands of volunteers have helped build and refine MDN over the past 12 years. In this year alone, 8,021 users made 76,203 edits, greatly increasing the scope and quality of the content. Cross-browser documentation contributions include input from writers at Google and Microsoft; Microsoft writers have made more than 5,000 edits so far in 2017. This cross-browser collaboration adds valuable content on browser compatibility and new features of the web platform. Going forward, Microsoft writers will focus their Web API documentation efforts on MDN and will redirect relevant pages from Microsoft Developer Network to MDN. A Broader Focus Now, the new Product Advisory Board for MDN is creating a more formal way to absorb all that’s going on across browsers and standards groups. Initial board members include representatives from Microsoft, Google, Samsung, and the W3C, with additional members possible in the future. By strengthening our relationships with experts across the industry, the Product Advisory Board will ensure MDN documentation stays relevant, is browser-agnostic, and helps developers keep up with the most important aspects of the web platform. “The reach of the web across devices and platforms is what makes it unique, and Microsoft is committed to helping it continue to thrive,” said Jason Weber, Partner Director of Program Management, Microsoft Edge. “We’re thrilled to team up with Mozilla, Google, and Samsung to create a single, great web standards documentation set on MDN for web developers everywhere.” Mozilla’s vision for the MDN Product Advisory Board is to build collaboration that helps the MDN community, collectively, maintain MDN as the most comprehensive, complete, and trusted reference documenting the most important aspects of modern browsers and web standards. The board’s charter is to provide advice and feedback on MDN content strategy, strategic direction, and platform/site features. Mozilla remains committed to MDN as an open source reference for web developers, and Mozilla’s team of technical writers will continue to work on MDN and collaborate with volunteers and corporate contributors. “Google is committed to building a better web for both users and developers,” said Meggin Kearney, Lead Technical Writer, Web Developer Relations at Google. “We’re excited to work with Mozilla, Microsoft, and Samsung to help guide MDN towards becoming the best source of up-to-date, comprehensive documentation for developers on the web.” MDN directly supports Mozilla’s overarching mission. We strive to ensure the Internet is a global public resource that is open and accessible to all. We believe that our award-winning documentation helps web developers build better web experiences – which also adhere to established standards and work across platforms and devices. MDN Board Members Ali Spivak, Chair, Mozilla Daniel Appelquist, Samsung Internet Dominique Hazael-Massieux, W3C Meggin Kearney, Google Patrick Kettner, Microsoft Christopher Mills, Mozilla Erika Doyle Navara, Microsoft Robert Nyman, Google Kadir Topal, Mozilla Source Alternate Source - BleepingComputer
  9. The theme installs through Substratum Theme Engine app, that you can download here, IT REQUIRES ROOT (except on OMS rootless and on Samsung Touchwiz Nougat system) and/or a Layers or Substratum compatible ROM: The theme has been tested on many ROMs, including stock Google and custom Marshmallow and Nougat ROMs (OxygenOS is supported too, it is Substratum Legacy though). Android 6, 7.1, 7.1.1, 7.1.2 and Oreo are supported. On 7.1-7.1.1 Substratum Legacy ROMs (including stock ones) you need to use an option called Frameworkless7.1RROcompatibility, and it has white notifications. Sadly it isn't possible to make them dark on that option. Some manufacturers' ROM's aren't guaranteed to be compatible (the farer they are from AOSP or Google ROMs, the more they're likely to not be compatible. In case you end in bootloop flash the rescue zip that you find in /sdcard/Substratum/ (the substratumLegacy one if your ROM is RRO. Only most custom ROMs have OMS, the rest has RRO) and ask for refund, also by e-mail if you need. This is the icon pack that you can see in the first screenshot, that I personally made to fit dark themes properly: Themed elements: -Pixel boot animation (on OMS only); -Pixel and Nexus ringtones and UI sounds (on OMS only); -14 wallpapers; -14 accent colors (Pixel blue and Teal only, on FrameworkLess option); -Android N-ify XPosed module; -AOSP Contacts; -AOSP Dialer; -AOSP Launcher; -AOSP Messages; -Calculator; -Car Throttle dark mode; -Documents/Download UI; -DU Updater; -ES File Explorer; -Facebook Messenger; -Framework-Res; -Gboard; -Google Assistant; -Google Calendar; -Google Chrome; -Google Chrome Beta; -Google Contacts; -Google Dialer; -Google Drive; -Google Keep; -Google Hangouts; -Google Inbox; -Google Launcher/Now; -Google Mail; -Google Messenger; -Google Photos; -Google Play Console; -Google Play Music; -Google Play Services; -Google Play Store; -Google Plus; -Google Translate; -Instagram; -Kernel Adiutor's dark mode; -LawnChair; -N style notifications; -Package Installer; -Pixel Launcher; -Root Explorer dark theme; -Samsung Contacts; -Samsung Keyboard; -Samsung Phone; -Settings; -Solid Explorer dark theme; -Spotify; -Substratum app; -SuperSU; -SystemUI; -Telegram (join the chat group of my themes and ask for the theme there to me); -Twitter night mode; -WhatsApp; -XDA Labs; -Youtube.
