Giving away free TVs with each purchase is one way to keep Galaxy S7 sales up

Galaxy S7 Price
Samsung shipped more than 81 million smartphones in the most recent quarter, according to market research firm Gartner. The company's successful flagship smartphone launch was obviously a big driver for Samsung in the first quarter as it enjoyed its fastest profit growth in three years.

On top of that, sales were no doubt bolstered by the fact that carriers were offering buy-one-get-one campaigns before the new flagship phones even launched. If you missed out on a BOGO deal, don't feel too bad because another nice incentive just popped up.

UBI Research forecast adds fuel to idea that only larger iPhones will get OLED screens initially

With most reports now agreeing that Apple will switch to OLED displays in iPhones in either 2017 or 2018 (but no consensus yet on which of the two years), UBI Research has now added fuel to the idea that not all models will benefit from the new screen technology.

The Korea Herald reports the firm’s president and chief analyst suggesting numbers that indicate a gradual rollout across models.

Lee Choong-hoon predicted an OLED iPhone with a curved screen would debut in 2018, saying OLED models would make up 30 percent or 100 million units of total iPhone shipments in the year and the figure could surge to 80 percent by 2020.

While the 30% figure could be explained by Apple launching its new iPhones late in the year, the ‘80% by 2020’ number would mean Apple continuing to manufacture some new models with the older IPS LCD screen tech for some time to come …

GearVR update brings much-needed native viewcapture tool to compatible phones

GearVRPhoto-small Here’s the thing: when your eyes are synthesizing information from multiple screens into a three-dimensional virtual space, the word “screenshot” fails to describe what it is doing almost as badly as it fails to document what you are experiencing. So I’m calling it viewcapture. Read More

New report outlines one way the iPhone 7 might not match the Galaxy S7

iPhone 7 Galaxy S7 Storage
One key component of the Galaxy S7 is Samsung’s ultra-fast universal flash storage (UFS) that’s able to offer better speeds than typical memory solutions used in smartphones and other computers. Based on Samsung's advanced V-NAND flash memory chips, the UFS storage would significantly improve the iPhone's performance. A new report says that although Samsung and Apple have inked a storage deal for the first time since the iPhone 5, Samsung's UFS might not make it into the iPhone until next year.
