New Samsung Tablet SM-T515 Pops Up in GeekBench, With Android 9.0 Pie In the Mix

By Radu Iorga

We already knew that Samsung was preparing a new Tab A or two for early 2019 and now we have more leaks about the product. It may as well be a Tab E, since it’s quite low specced. Anyways, the device appeared in GeekBench this week, under the codename SM-T515.

Samsung was actually working on a few new tablets, so it doesn’t surprise us to see this device popping up. The product you see here, may appear at MWC 2019 next month in Barcelona. It scored 1283 points in the single core test and 4017 in the multi core one in GeekBench. It’ll be a midrange affair with 2 GB of RAM and an Exynos 7885 CPU inside.

That’s the same processor that powers the best midrange phones from the company, like the Galaxy A7 (2018). 2 GB of RAM sounds like a bit of a bummer though. AT least there’s Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and there’s also the potential for One UI in a tablet version. Judging by the model number, this is the 4G LTE flavour of the machine, on account of its codename ending in “5”.

The model numbers of WiFi units end in “zero” usually. The product should be available in black and silver and at least two more models are expected within the Tab A family: SM-P200 and SM-P205. I expect 2 or 3 GB of RAM here, a beefy battery, a 10 inch or 11 inch screen, but an 8 incher is also not out of the picture.

CES 2019: Samsung Showcases Foldable Phone to Las Vegas Customers

By Radu Iorga

Samsung’s foldable phone was first partially shown at SDC 2018 late last year and now it’s back in a more detailed form. Samsung Electronics showcased its foldable machine at the CES 2019 booth for customers to see.

We expected CES to be about foldables, but aside from Samsung and Royole, I haven’t seen too much action. Right now Samsung is finishing up optimization processes for the foldable hardware and software. When unfolded, the machine doesn’t show any crease to indicate it has been bent. It seems that completely folding the device results in breakage, so more testing and upgrades are needed.

I should highlight the word “customers” here, because Samsung only showed the foldable to them at CES, not regular visitors. It means they showed it to retailers, carriers and potential partners. The display on the foldable is thinner when fully opened. When folded, the device provides a stable grip, instead of feeling thick.

Samsung intends to launch its foldable phone in the first half of the year and initially it will produce around 1 million units, less than the 10 million units quota for the Galayx S. Those who played with the device claim that it’s ideal for multitasking and great for someone who wants both a smartphone and tablet. The target audience is men in their 40s, familiar with “folder phones” launched in late 1990s.

Royole FlexPai is also a pretty solid foldable shown at CES 2019.

CES 2019: Samsung Debuts Notebook 9 Pro, a Premium Convertible Laptop + Notebook Flash Budget Model

By James A.

Samsung brought a bunch of new laptops at CES 2019, including a budget offering dubbed Notebook Flash, plus the premium model Samsung Notebook 9 Pro. That one is a premium convertible and both are detailed below.

Samsung Notebook 9 Pro is a 13.3 inch screen machine, with a convertible format and a full metal design. Inside there’s an Intel Whiskey Lake processor and the laptop packs a touchscreen display and a 360 degree hinge. Sammy put on it stereo 1.5 watt speakers, a backlit keyboard and an Intel Core i7-8565U CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of PCIe NVMe SSD.

A 55 Wh battery also makes the cut, plus a bundled pen with over 4000 levels of pressure sensitivity. There’s no shortage of connectivity options, like two Thunderbolt 3 ports, one extra USB Type-C port and an audio jack. To that we add a microSD card slot and the obvious WiFi and Bluetooth. It all weighs 2.84 pounds.

 

Then comes the plastic and Intel Gemini Lake totting model Samsung Notebook Flash. There’s a 13.3 inch screen on board, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of eMMC storage. It weighs around 3 pounds and measures 0.67 inches in thickness. There’s a Full HD resolution here, a fingerprint sensor and CPU options are Intel Celeron N4000 and Pentium Silver N5000. The round buttons below remind me of Google’s Pixel Slate keyboard.

Connectivity is the following: two USB Type-C ports, an USB 2.0 port, HDMI, audio jack and WiFi ac. There’s also microSD and a 39 Wh battery. Sadly there are no prices or launch dates for either model yet. Both run Windows 10 Home.

Samsung sticks Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU inside new Odyssey gaming notebook

By Valentina Palladino

Samsung

Samsung is making news at CES 2019—but not for an obvious reason. The Korean manufacturer announced its first new gaming laptop in quite some time: the Samsung Notebook Odyssey. While Samsung has made gaming devices with the Odyssey name, this new notebook appears to compete with similarly powerful and portable gaming PCs from the likes of Acer, Alienware, and Razer.

Most noteworthy is the graphics card inside the Notebook Odyssey: the new Nvidia RTX 2080. Nvidia just announced these new graphics cards, which will come to at least 40 laptops soon. The RTX 2080 and RTX 2060 cards promise big performance and efficiency gains over their GTX counterparts, with the RTX 2080 serving up 20 percent more performance when compared to the GTX 1080 GPU. They also bring ray-tracing abilities to the PCs they power, a process used in films to make live-action graphics look hyper-realistic.
