With Galaxy S8 release imminent, new Samsung ads promise its phones won’t explode anymore

Samsung Galaxy S8 Release Date

Remember that time a Samsung smartphone exploded and burned a man's house down? Or how about that time a Samsung phone exploded and set someone's Jeep on fire? There are plenty more stories where those came from, and these incidents ultimate forced Samsung to issue the biggest global recall that the cell phone industry has ever seen. Samsung's defective battery design made its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones unsafe to use, and it had to cancel the device completely in order to limit its liability and keep its customers safe from detonating phones. Now, with the release of the next-generation Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ fast approaching, Samsung has released a series of new ads in which the company wants to make it as clear as possible that its upcoming new phones aren't going to burn your house down or engulf your car in flames.

Forget all that for a second, as it appears that a couple of Galaxy S8 hands-on videos were already posted online. After all, what better time to see hands-on videos of the Galaxy S8 than during MWC 2017?

This is probably the Samsung Galaxy S8

s8 Samsung is set to announce the Galaxy S8 smartphone in late March, but the two videos and a couple images embedded here appear to show working units. The videos show the phone’s refined design. The curved screen of the S7 remains as does the 3.5mm headphone port. The phone looks very similar to its predecessor though it’s missing the physical and capacitive buttons found on… Read More

We don’t need more Surface clones

img_0046 When Microsoft launched the Surface line back in 2012, its combination of a tablet and keyboard cover (married with a smart kickstand), was innovative. With it, Microsoft surely hoped to kickstart a bit of innovation in what had become a rather stale market for Windows laptops and an almost non-existing market for Windows tablets. Instead of innovation, though, what we’re seeing now is… Read More

Galaxy S8 release date

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3, Galaxy Book 10 and Galaxy Book 12: Everything you need to know

Samsung Galaxy Book 12 Specs

Samsung fans, prepare to be disappointed.

The company's big MWC 2017 press conference is about to begin, but we met with Samsung last week and we already know everything the company plans to unveil on stage on Sunday in Barcelona. When the show is over in an hour or so, you will be disappointed. I'm not suggesting the three new devices Samsung is about to unveil are bad devices. In fact, quite the opposite: I've spent time with the brand new Galaxy Book 12, Galaxy Book 10 and Galaxy Tab S3, and they're all impressive gadgets in their own right. But Samsung fans around the world have been eagerly awaiting one announcement in particular — the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ — and they'll still be waiting once today's press conference has come to a close.

It's a shame, but it's not entirely unexpected considering all of the leaks and rumors up to this point. Samsung isn't expected to take the wraps off its new flagship smartphone duo until late March ahead of they're April 21st release. In the meantime, you've got three fresh new Samsung devices to fawn over, and we'll give you your first taste of the Galaxy Book 12, Galaxy Book 10 and Galaxy Tab S3 right here.
