The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are finally here. Samsung's newest flagships stick pretty close to the Galaxy S6 formula, but they add a brand new SoC—the Snapdragon 820—and bring back some of the features the Galaxy S6 missed out on.
Samsung has begun rolling out Android’s February security update for all of its recent flagships. The release is currently reaching unlocked units in most markets, and should be available to those branded by carriers soon.
The updates are available for the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge, Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 4, and Galaxy Note 5, according to SamMobile — and they’re currently rolling out in markets throughout Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Americas.
Tech giant Samsung Electronics Co Ltd will start making new chips for Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) Inc next year, South Korea's Electronic Times reported on Tuesday citing unnamed sources.
The paper said Samsung's foundry business and Globalfoundries will jointly start producing a central processing chip as well as a graphics processing chip for AMD next year using their 14-nanometre technology.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has just published an application from Samsung (via 9to5Mac) that attempts to patent a foldable electronic device. It’s likely that one of the examples depicted in the application represents the company’s upcoming foldable smartphone, dubbed Project Valley.
South Korean technology giant Samsung said it has started mass production of 128 gigabyte DDR4 DRAM modules.
