When to expect the first 5G-enabled devices in South Africa

Before you get too excited, it’s safe to say that 5G is still quite a way off for South Africa. The problem is two fold. First, in order to roll out commercial 5G services mobile network operators need access to the radio frequency spectrum 5G requires. The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) is responsible for making that happen, but is bogged down in arguments about how ...[Read More]

Samsung Pay will come to 5 more banks next year

Samsung customers are officially allowed to get excited — the Samsung Pay platform will add a total of five more banks in 2019. At this stage, Samsung Pay only supports Absa, Standard Bank, Mastercard and Visa payments.  Who are the new participants? Earlier this month, Discovery announced their banks will launch early next year. The company publicly announced that they will launch with Sams...[Read More]

Samsung Galaxy S10 preview: Everything we know so far

Are you ready for a punch-hole cutout in the display? After last year’s bold reinvention of the Samsung Galaxy S8, this year’s Galaxy S9 didn’t have quite the same impact. It’s still one of the best phones you can buy today, but it’s tougher to get excited about a super-expensive smartphone that feels… samesy. But surely the Galaxy S10 will go big again. Not onl...[Read More]

Samsung is adding a neural processing unit to the Galaxy S10

For most of us, the first time we heard about a neural processing unit, or NPU, in relation to smartphones was when Huawei announced that it was including one in the Mate 10 Pro. Then Apple started including on-chip neural processing so it was only a matter of time before Samsung started doing it too. First up? The Galaxy S10, of course. If, that is, you live in a region where Samsung uses its Exy...[Read More]

We may see Samsung’s folding ‘Galaxy F’ smartphone in March – but it’ll cost us

It took a few years for rumours of a folding Samsung phone to come to a sort of fruition but even now we’re mostly in the dark about what it will entail besides an unusual screen. Rumour is our chief method of seeing what’s going on right now and there are some fresh ones coming out of South Korea. First, a name: The Galaxy F. That’s the apparent title for Samsung’s folding...[Read More]

Samsung has revealed their folding smartphone display – here’s what we know

Samsung has done what it said it would and revealed its first folding smartphone at the company’s Developer Conference in San Francisco this week. In a manner of speaking, anyway. There was certainly a folding smartphone shown on stage, though the device was disguised in a case that concealed ‘key design elements’. Samsung’s new tech was demonstrated by Justin Denison, the ...[Read More]

Samsung teases its first folding smartphone for its November Developer Conference

We’ve long been expecting Samsung to debut its foldable smartphone, whatever it turns out to actually be. Earlier this year we were convinced that Samsung’s device would be making its first appearance this year. Later, CEO DJ Koh confirmed that their first crack at something different would appear soon. Now Samsung has teased the reveal, which is expected to take place at the Samsung D...[Read More]

Samsung’s new Galaxy A-series handsets boasts the company’s first triple, quad camera setups

Samsung’s Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 9 announcements this year might have introduced the company’s most powerful handsets to date, but they didn’t really show us anything new. That honour seems to have been reserved for the company’s Galaxy A-series announcement today that detailed the Galaxy A7 and Galaxy A9. Though it’s not exactly a surprise, we got our first proper...[Read More]

Samsung’s foldable phone could soon be a reality

We rarely see a truly remarkable new technology more than once a decade. After years of undelivered promises, such a technology looks finally set to enter the market: the flexible computer screen. Imagine, a tablet display you can fold up and put in your pocket, a smart watch whose strap is the screen, or a handbag that is also a monitor and keyboard. Nokia originally called this proposed technolo...[Read More]

Samsung’s Galaxy A7 has three rear cameras and a sub-R10k price tag

Earlier this week we brought you rumours doing the rounds that Samsung would bring two new mid-range smartphones to market, one with three rear cameras, another with four. We were only expecting the devices to drop in October… but the first of them, the Galaxy A7, has been announced today, along with pricing and availability. It’ll arrive in November, with a recommended retail price of...[Read More]

Samsung rumour roundup: Four camera sensors likely on the way

Samsung appears to be joining the more-than-two-rear-cameras-on-a-smartphone game. Rumours suggest that upcoming Samsung devices, that, it turns out, aren’t part of the flagship range, might feature three and four rear camera sensors, respectively. A Dutch site called GalaxyClub.nl posted a purportedly leaked image of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A7 smartphone, and it definitely has a triple rear c...[Read More]
