Weibo has long since been the ultimate place to find awesome leaks and this one is no exception either. If the news does turn out to be true, then it would truly be awesome for fans of the Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi. It should be noted that although Samsung is currently leading the pack with their new generation of bezel-less beauties (Galaxy S8/S8+), it was Xiaomi who reinvented the genre with the Mi Mix after the Sharp Aquos began the trend back in 2014.


According to the report, the highly anticipated Mi Mix 2 and Mi Note 3 are likely going to sport curved AMOLED displays made by Samsung. Given that Samsung's curved AMOLED displays are inarguably the best in the business, it looks like we are in for some seriously stunning smartphones from Xiaomi this year. The only gripe is that those models have so far not been released outside China. Let' hope that the Chinese manufacturer changes up its strategy this year around.

T-Mobile had already launched its Galaxy S8 bogo offer a week or so ago and now Samsung joins in with one of their own. However, T-Mobile still has a role to play in this one as well, since at least one of the two smartphones needs to have an active T-Mobile line in it for the user to avail the offer. You can use the other one with whatever network you wish though; something that is not a part of the bogo deal offered by T-Mobile earlier. However, the activation of the T-Mobile line has to be done through the official Samsung.com website.


The deal is valid for both the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ and once you have activated the T-mobile line, Samsung will refund you $750 within 7 - 10 business days via the same mode of purchase as used by you. As far as I know, the offer can only be availed via Samsung.com as of now. In case you are wondering what's the catch here, surprisingly enough, there doesn't seem to be any really! Samsung will not refund you the money through monthly rebates or via a prepaid card of any kind; instead they will return up to $750 directly to your credit card/bank account, depending on how you bought the two phones form their website. It's a great offer and will possibly last for a very short time.

The sales of tablets has waned down to such a degree that most manufacturers have actually stopped producing them altogether. Even the likes of Samsung, a company which used to churn out multiple tablets in every price segment just two or three years ago has released only one new tablet recently and that's the Galaxy Tab S3. However, the Apple iPads have almost inherently been more popular than Android tablets and still continue to enjoy similar popularity in most regions. Therefore, you can understand our surprise when IDC presented reports which placed Android tablets (read Samsung tablets) higher than the iPads in Western Europe!


Although the tablet market in general waned down by 1.7% YOY at the end of Q1 2017, Android tablets were in majority in the 7.1 million tablets sold in the region during the period. Samsung secured the first position with 26.5% of the market share in the quarter and a sales number of 1.89 million units. Apple slipped down to the second position with 21.7% market share and a sales number of 1.54 million units. What is even more important is the fact that while Samsung's tablet sales saw a YOY Q1 growth of 17.9%, Apple saw a decline 11.5%, which is quite unexpected and staggering. I guess Samsung is coming back on top everywhere and in every segment!

The SID or Society for Information Display Award is one of the most prestigious awards in the industry and thanks to their brand new quad-edge flexible OLED display technology, Samsung got it this year. Samsung had earlier won the Display of the Year Award from the SID back in 2013 and 2015 for its Super AMOLED display technology. The award was given to the South Korean company because of their technological prowess and the feature set which they displayed with the quad-edge flexible OLED display.

 

Although LG still maintains that curved displays are fragile and uncomfortable to hold, the SID award was given largely to Samsung because of the fact that the award winning curved displays are easier and more comfortable to hold than flat panels. Given the popularity and the apparent opinions of the experts, I think LG might need to rethink their decision to avoid curved displays. In other news, some rumors are predicting that the Google Pixel 2 could feature a curved display as well and we all know about the iPhone 8 OLED and its rumoured futuristic design.

They already have had the necessary FCC certifications and rumors are predicting that both the smartphones will be made official by Samsung anytime now. While the Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) will not be phones which will ever enter the US or European markets, they are a huge hit in the emerging markets of India, Pakistan and South Africa. On that note, let's take a look at what Samsung has in store for the fans of the series this year.



The design visually reminds us about the Galaxy A (2017) series. Of course, it will have more modest hardware specifications as compared to the mid-range A-series. If you are wondering what those specifications are, your guess is as good as mine. Nevertheless, let's hope that the 1080p display won't be exclusive to China this year around. Don't expect any AMOLED displays though as those are reserved for Samsung's higher end phones only.
