Galaxy Note 7 Leak
This has been a big week of firsts for eager Samsung fans who can't wait to get their hands on the company's upcoming new flagship phone, the Galaxy Note 7. After a few rounds of new photos leaked earlier in the week, we showed you the first ever video of a working Galaxy Note 7 on Thursday. The new flagship phablet appears to be everything we've come to expect after weeks of leaks and rumors — and that's a good thing, because leaks have thus far painted a very impressive picture. Now, another first: A video posted on Weibo by an anonymous user appears to show the Galaxy Note 7's new iris scanner in action.

Samsung invents the artificial muscles your future foldable smartphone will need

Samsung Foldable Smartphone Design
It’s no secret that Samsung wants to make more advanced flexible mobile devices in the future, including foldable smartphones. But such products require advanced manufacturing techniques that would guarantee the integrity of the product while it’s being bent. Samsung, therefore, invented an artificial muscle whose mission, should it choose to accept it, would be to move the internal components and the screen of a flexible device in such a way that the hardware isn’t damaged.

Ultimate drop test: Can the Galaxy S7 Active survive a 400-foot fall?

Galaxy S7 Active Drop Test
When a company releases a new high-profile phone alongside claims that it's water-resistant, shatter-resistant or just about anything else-resistant, you can believe that bloggers are going to put those claims to the test. And as can only be expected, they're going to put those claims to the test in the most savage ways imaginable. We've seen Samsung's new Galaxy S7 Active fail some water submersion tests lately, so owners might be wise to avoid any unnecessary dunks. But the S7 Active has held up very well in all of the drop tests we've seen to date. Of course, none of those drop have been quite as extreme as this one.

Samsung won’t be producing any chips for the iPhone 8

iPhone 8 A11 Processor
A new report from the Economic Daily News (via Digitimes) relays that Apple has tapped Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to be the exclusive supplier of A11 chips for the company's 2017 iPhone, a device that might very well be called the iPhone 8. TSMC is already rumored to be the exclusive supplier of A10 chips for the upcoming iPhone 7, though we'll have to wait for the inevitable stream of device teardowns before we know for sure. As it stands now, A9 chip production for the iPhone 6s is split between TSMC and Samsung.

You’ll be able to order the Galaxy Note 7 a lot sooner than you think

Galaxy Note 7 Preorder August 2
Samsung already told everyone that the Galaxy Note 7 is the next hot Note phablet and that it’ll launch it on August 2nd in a special Unpacked event in New York – of course, we knew all that from all the leaks we saw in the past few months. We also know pretty much everything there is to know about the phone’s specs and we have plenty of pictures showing its final design, including purported press renders. Some reports also even offered potential pricing details and release dates for the handset, and a new rumor claims you’ll be able to order the Galaxy Note 7 a lot sooner than you think.

Galaxy Note 7 looks stunning in new leaked photos

Galaxy Note 7 News
On Tuesday evening, Samsung announced the date on which it plans to announce the Galaxy Note 7. Odd that it would confirm the name of a phone ahead of its announcement without providing any additional details, but that doesn't make the upcoming unveiling any less exciting. The new Galaxy Note 7 phablet is expected to be the sleekest and most powerful smartphone Samsung has ever created, and now a new set of leaked photos likely gives us a good look at the upcoming new Galaxy Note 7 from just about every angle.

Samsung video explains why the next iPhone is due for a major screen upgrade

iPhone 2017 OLED Displays
Haven’t you heard? The "iPhone 7" is boring, if that’s what Apple decides to call its new 2016 flagship phone. But if the "iPhone 7" name isn't used until next year, then the new 7 will be very exciting, and it'll sport a radical redesign. Now, a Samsung marketing video perfectly explains why the iPhone is indeed due for a massive upgrade in 2017, at least when it comes to screen performance.

Samsung just made the Galaxy Note 7 official, but it won’t confirm any details

Galaxy Note 7 Release Date
In something of an unconventional move on Tuesday evening, Samsung announced that it will announce the Galaxy Note 7. Maybe we should clarify. The world's No. 1 smartphone company by shipment volume confirmed in a blog post on Tuesday that it will unveil its next-generation Galaxy Note 7 during a press conference next month. The event will take place in New York City on August 2nd, aligning perfectly with a number of earlier rumors that suggested Samsung's new Note phablet would debut on that date. Unfortunately, Samsung didn't confirm any other details about the phone or when it might be released.
