Samsung Galaxy Book 2 2 in 1 Laptop Certified by FCC, Runs Windows 10

By Radu Iorga

Samsung has a new 2 in 1 device coming, we knew as much and now we learn that the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 has been certified by the FCC. It’s going to run on Windows 10 and it previously appeared in other leaks.

It was also certified by the EEC and WiFi Alliance and this second gen Galaxy Book appeared on the FCC website with the FCC ID A3L SMW737NO. EEC also had it with the model number “SM-W737”. It should also have a SM-W738 version, that will not make it to the US market. LTE connectivity should be in the mix, as well as WiFi dual band a/b/g/n/ac. Samsung’s first Galaxy Book came last year in two sizes: 10.6 inch and 12 inch.

It was all about productivity, hooking up an S-Pen with Windows 10 and the Air Command features. It had Smart Select, Samsung Notes and more. The current model has an Intel Core 7th gen CPU, while the Galaxy Book 2 is said to be ready to receive an 8th gen CPU inside. It’s said to ship with Windows 10 S, but I’m sure the upgrade to full Windows 10 is on the table.

While a launch time frame isn’t clear yet, we expect the product to be in stores around the holiday season. Expect the price to go past $1000, like the predecessor’s. I wouldn’t predict a jump to more than 16 GB of RAM though, but extra storage and maybe even some decent graphics may happen.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 Debuts in USA on September 14th

By James A.

Samsung is still a name that matters greatly on the tablet market, in spite of the fact that the tablet market itself is less than relevant nowadays. The South Koreans have decreased the frequency of their launches, but they still have 3-4 interesting models per year. Among them we find the midrange unit Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5, which has been confirmed for debut in USA on September 14th.

The device will come to the States on the same day as the Samsung Galaxy A6 handset. This slate was unveiled in early August with the bigger and more popular Galaxy Tab S4. It’s a 10.5 inch midrange tablet with Android Oreo and a 16:10 aspect ratio. It also offers a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution, as well as quad speakers with Dolby acoustics. Inside it is the same 7300 mAh battery of the Tab S4 and a less powerful CPU, the Snapdragon 450.

There’s also a USB Type-C port in the mix and support for Smart Things, which lets you control your smart objects around the house. A Kids mode is included too, with digital learning, books, videos and limitations for the little ones. Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.5 is priced at $329 and it’ll be available on Amazon, Walmart and Samsung’s own website.

It’ll come in a WiFi version at first, but a LTE one is also scheduled for debut on Sprint and Verizon later this year. We’ve also got 3 GB of RAM here and everything is crammed within a 529 gram package. There’s also an 8 MP back camera with a LED flash here.

Samsung Foldable Smartphone Design Gets Detailed Again, Supposedly Has 7.3 inch Screen

By Radu Iorga

Samsung’s foldable phone is in the news again, this time thanks to some leaks from South Korea, that are talking about the device’s diagonal. Apparently it’ll come with a 7.3 inch OLED screen and we have more details below.

Samsung already admitted it has the product in development and that it exists. Their mobile chief DJ Koh also admitted that the product exists, so we should see it at CES 2019 probably. Some even say that it’ll be unveiled this year during Samsung’s Developer Conference in November. The presumed name is Samsung Galaxy F and the device is expected to be a sort of clamshell, with a predilection for vertical orientation rather than horizontal one.

Samsung’s foldable smartphone may also end up looking like a book, or like the ill fated Microsoft Courier even. The new report talks about the 7.3 inch OLED display made by Samsung Display with a 1.5R curvature. The external part of the screen has a 4.6 inch diagonal and thanks tot he flexibility you can expand or contract it. There’s once again talks about the production of the foldable displays hitting somewhere between 100,000 and 120,000 units a month.

Samsung Display is said to have placed orders for 150,000 to 180,000 units per month, because of yield issues. It all feels experimental and I fail to see the selling point… Flexibility was seen once or twice before, but it didn’t catch one.

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Ready for Debut, Apparently Certified in South Korea

By Radu Iorga

Samsung has a new Windows-powered Galaxy Book model coming and apparently that device has been certified in South Korea. Codenamed SM-W737N0, the device has been found as approved by the a regulatory agency, the RRA. The Galaxy Book 2 also previously leaked in Russia.

A few months ago the product was seen on Russia’s EEC portal, showing the first signs of a new laptop with Windows. Sadly, the RRA listing only pinpoints a LTE version, but it doesn’t also mean much else. We’re dealing with a 2 in 1 detachable here, that’s expected to come with multiple processor and storage versions, similar to the predecessor.

Considering the previous models and the Windows 10 Inking support, we also expect an S Pen to be bundled, or maybe some other new pen. Samsung had a busy time lately, launching Galaxy Tab S and Tab A models, but no new laptop. A new Galaxy Book would be welcome, especially since we’ve seen Acer and Lenovo launching a ton of laptops lately and Huawei even has a few solid ones as well.

The first gen Galaxy Book had a 10.6 inch and 12 inch screen version and some say that the successor will only come as a 12 incher, leaving behind the smaller diagonal. Samsung has been keeping a low profile with Windows so far, so that’s why things are still up in the air. Expect a big price, maybe above $1000.

Samsung Teases Foldable Smartphone for Late 2018 Debut

By James A.

After debuting the Galaxy Note 9 and speculating on the Galaxy A midrangers, that are going to get higher end features come 2019, Samsung has set its sights on foldables. The South Korean firm has teased a new foldable smartphone for launch later this year.

Samsung’s prototypes of foldables, OLED machines, Youm units and other attempts date as far as 2012, so they’ve been at it for a long while. CNBC quotes Samsung CEO, DJ Koh, who claimed that the device will be unveiled during the company’s developer conference from November. It’s very likely just a prototype or a special edition, that will just be sold in South Korea.

Previously we’ve heard about only 100k units being made available for starters. Samsung is said to be preparing a bendable phone within the Galaxy Note line. They had experiments before, like the Galaxy Note Edge, or the ill fated Galaxy Round. We have reported about and covered a large number of Samsung patents, that went back and forth between vertical and horizontal formats for the foldables.

Some of them open up like books or newspapers, others are merely glorified clamshells. The core is to make a tablet-sized device fit into the pocket by folding it. Samsung may include a 7 inch screen on the newcomer and maybe inaugurate the oft rumored Galaxy F device.

Expect the product to fold in half like a wallet.
