  Samsung reveals Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite ahead of CES 2020 You'll be able to get budget versions of its 2019 phone, but we have no pricing or release date yet.Each device includes 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O displays with 2400×1080 resolution, 32MP front-facing cameras, 6GB or 8GB of RAM with 128GB internal storage and 4,500mAh batteries.

Back in October, when Netflix premiered the Breaking Bad sequel movie El Camino on the streaming service, it gave fans of the franchise hungry for more content a satisfying conclusion to the storyline about Jesse Pinkman’s unresolved future — specifically focused on what happened after he escaped the clutches of the neo-Nazi gang and got finally free, too, of Walter White.

Meanwhile, unless you were at a specific viewing party in New York City on the movie’s release day of October 11, you might have missed a sidenote to the movie’s release. It involved the kicking off of a deeper partnership between Samsung and the streamer (which I wrote about at the time here), one that started with the release of the movie and was touted to eventually include everything from a custom Samsung TV channel to viewing parties and other events. That Friday, Samsung and Netflix hosted a joint El Camino viewing party for fans and Samsung Smart TV owners at Samsung 837 in New York, a screening that included a three-story Samsung display to show the film on, as well as immersive photo installations inspired by the movie’s set pieces, including a replica El Camino car. Beyond that, I wondered what else might be in store as a result of this partnership — and on Tuesday, during Samsung’s Unpacked event at which it showed off new Galaxy S20 phones and Galaxy Buds Plus earbuds, as well as the new Galaxy Z Flip phone, Samsung provided an answer.

Samsung will unveil its latest Galaxy phones on February 11th

  Samsung will unveil its latest Galaxy phones on February 11th In case you've been losing sleep over whether that leaked Samsung invite video was real, fret no more. Samsung itself confirmed this evening that it plans to show off "new, innovative devices that will shape the next decade of mobile experiences" at a Galaxy Unpacked event in San Francisco on February 11th. The event's timing almost certainly means Samsung will officially reveal the Galaxy S11 -- or Galaxy S20, depending on who you ask. The language Samsung used in its newsroom post, however, seems to suggest we'll see more than just the standard flagship smartphones we're used to giving the hands-on treatment to.

Samsung may be best known for its flagship models, but the company also makes some great budget devices like the Galaxy J3. The device handles multitasking without any stuttering, and its five-megapixel camera is about what you’d expect from a budget device .

Samsung Electronics today unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S20, a new series of flagship devices that fundamentally change the way we capture and experience our world. Now, more than ever, we capture our lives and tell our stories through our smartphones—and that is why the camera is the

At one point during Tuesday’s event, Netflix CMO Jackie Lee-Joe took the stage to herald the arrival of some new features that Galaxy users will be able to enjoy courtesy of Netflix, like behind-the-scenes goodies and bonus content. “In the coming months, Samsung mobile users will have access to a whole host of new and exciting bonus content based on some of your favorite Netflix Originals, accessible through Samsung Daily and Samsung channels,” Lee-Joe said. “The content will shine a light on our diverse mix of creators from all around the world, a selection of whom will be handed a Galaxy S20 to shoot this content themselves, so that they have the freedom to continue inventing new ways to tell stories their way.”

Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 could have an even sillier name than we expected

  Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 could have an even sillier name than we expected Another leak regarding the new Samsung Galaxy Fold has brought forward yet another possible name for it.This new name is 'Samsung Galaxy Z Flip', which is probably our least favorite name for the new device yet, and it was brought up by esteemed leaker @UniverseIce. It's not clear where this information came from, but @UniverseIce tends to have a fairly good track record, which is why we're reporting on the leak in the first place.

At Galaxy Unpacked 2020, Samsung announced that Netflix will be integrated into Bixby and Galaxy phones ' search bars thanks to a new partnership. And secondly, Samsung mobile owners will also get exclusive bonus content around Netflix Originals.

It’s easy to see the potential benefits of the partnership here for Netflix, which is facing increased competition from new streaming rivals and is thus latching itself even tighter to see the world’s leading smartphone vendor. Most of Netflix’s global subscriber base currently resides outside the US (where the company is also growing the most), which is reflected in the company’s increased investment in foreign-language content, making a partnership with a leading international smartphone maker like Samsung even more of a no-brainer.

The new Netflix content that will seemingly be exclusive to Samsung phones will include bonus content tied to the streamer’s originals like Narcos and Elite, two of its hottest TV series at the moment which also happen to be all or mostly foreign-language based.

This is presumably the kind of thing Samsung and Netflix were referring to back during that October event, when the companies teased that more fruits of their partnership would be revealed “in the near future.” At the time, Samsung also used the Samsung TV Plus platform to hype El Camino by releasing a custom channel encouraging Breaking Bad fans to countdown to the movie’s release on Netflix — all of which, again, makes it interesting to see what else will emerge from this tighter affiliation between the two companies.

Samsung just blasted Galaxy phones around the world with a bizarre notification for no reason .
All smartphones have a great built-in feature that you’ll hopefully never use. That’s a variation of Find My iPhone that Apple introduced years ago that lets you get a hold of a lost or stolen device. So if one should receive Find My Mobile notifications on their device, one would clearly worry that something may have happened to their devices. That’s exactly what happened a few hours ago when Samsung pushed out a mind-boggling notification via the Find My Mobile app that reads “1”. © Provided by BGR samsung-galaxy-s10-sign The notification hit multiple devices and went away if you tried to tap on it, hinting that it may all be a mistake from Samsung.
