Samsung Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 Manual Leaks Out, Sketches Too

By Radu Iorga

Aside from the Samsung Galaxy Tab S4, there’s also another Sammy tablet coming, supposedly called the Samsung Galaxy Tab Advanced 2. Now we have more faith about the existence of such a model, since its manual and sketches have leaked out.

Last month the device was certified, going by the codename SM-T583. It’s considered to be the successor to the Galaxy Tab A 10.1, a model launched in 2016 with the codename SM-T580. The specs of the newcomer show an Exynos 7870 processor, the same CPU from the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 and the Galaxy J6 or the A6. The resolution is 1920 x 1200 pixels and you can find all of that in the manual.

The device runs Android 8.0 Oreo, an upgrade from the Nougat on the Galaxy Tab A 10.1. Samsung Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 has the measurements also leaked in the documents, like 250.4 x 166.2 x 8.5 mm, with a weight of 525 grams. Bluetooth 4.2 is also in the mix, a microSD and Bixby, plus Dolby Atmos. The sketches show that there’s no Home button here, while the volume and On/Off buttons are on the top.

The charging is done via the USB Type-C port at the bottom. Strangely enough we also get a front camera with LED flash, so maybe you’ll take selfies with this cam. A Live Sticker option is present too, plus a Beauty and Pro mode. The main camera has autofocus, HDR and Panorama mode. No megapixel count has been mentioned just yet.

Sources say that the device will come within a month and the price will be the same as the Galaxy Tab A.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 Leaks Again, Has Bigger Screen Than Tab S3

By Radu Iorga

Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 has leaked a record number of times, including in benchmarks, certifications and specs. It’s time for a new round of leaks, confirming what we knew already basically. It’ll be bigger than the Tab S3 for starters.

It’s been over a year since the Tab S3 debuted, so it’s high time for a follow-up. We previously saw the device on GFXBench and then via WiFi certifications. It’s only a matter of time till it debuts through an official event or gets unveiled without fanfare, as the Galaxy A models have in the past.

According to the latest leaks, it’ll have a 10.5 inch screen and Android 8.1. Previous leaks actually mentioned it with Android 8.0 first. GFXBench also lists several new features, like autofocus and touch focus for the main camera, as well s the GPU API.

Scores are also different from the last leaks, so a bit of tweaking has been happening. Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 is expected to offer a 2.3 GHz octa core Snapdragon CPU, probably a Snapdragon 835, as well as a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.

It also has a 13 MP back camera, 8 MP selfie shooter, GPS, Bluetooth, the works. Word through the grapevine says we may also end up with a 6 GB RAM version at some point. There’s also a worst case scenario of keeping the Snapdragon 820 CPU of the predecessor, according to some other rumors.

Surface Phone Might Happen After All; Mobile Related APIs Show Up in Windows 10 Redstone 5

By Claudiu Sima

One of the most interesting phone we’re hearing news over and over again is Microsoft Surface Phone, product that received a lot of leaks, mostly being patents published by the IT company. Now we finally have some hard proof, that one being that Microsoft included mobile related APIs in the latest Windows 10 Redstone 5.

This introduction arrives after about a year ago when the mobile APIs were completely removed from Windows 10 Update Fall Creators, which disappointed some users thinking that Surface Phone would not happen. Now with their deployment in the latest release of Windows 10, hope appears on the horizon.

According to sone information leaked online, these APIs allow a dialer software, the ability to block calls, make video calls, and other tasks that are usually associated with a mobile operating system. It would not make sense on a laptop or tablet with Windows 10, so the only possibility is that Microsoft will return to the smartphone segment.

If Microsoft Surface Phone becomes official, we will get top-of-the-range features and a clamshell design that reminds of ZTE Axon M with two displays There are also special designs that involve folding panels, but for the moment I do not think that will be the case.

According to some rumors, Microsoft’s Surface Phone launch might happen in less than 3 weeks during Build 2018 conference.

Chromebooks May Go 4K Pretty Soon, Leak Shows

By Radu Iorga

The definition of Chromebooks has changed quite a bit over the past year or so, as we’ve seen them getting new features. We’ve seen them get Google Play Store support, Android apps and also Chromebooks have been bumped up to higher specs and CPUs. Now they’re going 4K, it seems.

The Google Pixelbook already seemed to have plenty of pixels, at 2400 x 1600 pixels in resolution. Well, you can always do better and it seems that we’re about to see a 4K Chromebook. The info is revealed by the Chromium OS source code, which is the on that Chrome OS is based on. It just got updated with a reference to a machine that’s codenamed “Atlas” and comes with a 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution screen.

XDA Developers has the scoop on it. The file that mentions the 4K stuff is called “boards/yaml” and also lists different hardware configs for Chromium OS supports. The Google Pixelbook appears there as “eve”, while Samsung’s Chromebook Plus is “kevin”. The Atlas doesn’t seem to have an SD card slot and other than that and the resolution specs are unknown. The code mentions a keyboard, touchpad and touchscreen, too.

A 4K Chromebook means two things: video editing and gaming, which is something that the Chromebooks haven’t tackled till now. Interestingly the 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution means a 16:9 aspect ratio, which is wider than the Pixelbook 3:2 display. Sounds like full screen Netflix and split screen multitasking to me. We’ll learn more at I/O next month.

Surface Phone Components and Detailed Renders Show a New Face of the Hinge, USB Port

By James A.

The past few days have brought new hope for the few Windows Mobile and Surface Phone fans, with numerous renders and patents popping up. They all show the same thing: a dual display smartphone, that gets turned into a tablet, with a minimal hinge action. Today we have even more detailed patent aspects, through the renders shown below.

These are actually an extended leak from the previous patent image cache, but this time in more minute details. We see a special USB Type-C port variety, a low profile one, that would fit on a slimmer device. The level of detail is quite impressive here and it’s meant to keep the device as slim as possible when folded. Then there’s a Surflink connector, also with a low profile and it’s supposed to connect the ribbon cables of each device half.

A closer look reveals mentions of OLED panels, flat glass edge rotations and translations, plus cable routing through hinges. We can even see a section of the mechanism and small cogs that make the whole thing fold. While the two screens have flat edges, that really join together with zero seam, there are intricate mechanisms below that let you “part the seas” and use the two screens separately after splitting them.

 

It seems that Microsoft really went out of its way to make this device foldable, but without using flexible panels or materials, just cogs. I have a feeling this device won’t be ready for CES 2018, or MWC 2018, but rather for BUILD 2018 in Spring. I’m sure that we’ll also see hands on leaks by then. Still, are people still enthusiastic about this product?
