If you happen to be in South Korea and planning to buy a Galaxy S8 or S8+, you might just be able to buy it in one more color option than before. The new Burgundy Red is supposed to go with the autumn theme and admittedly, it really does. It's a beautiful color and check out the ad above to see it in live action. The only question that remains is, will Samsung release it outside their home country?

Aside from the rear panel though, everything else is the same as in any other Galaxy S8 or S8+. Nevertheless, colors do matter and it would be interesting to see if Samsung does the same thing they did last year with the Coral Blue color and the Galaxy S7 Edge in US; they released the Coral Blue color option for the S7 Edge in time for the Holiday season and the same can happen this year with the Burgundy Red as well. Would you buy the S8 in red? Let us know in the comments.

It is no secret that Samsung doesn't exactly consider the iPhones to be much more than fanfare and they have seldom stopped their marketing team from taking a dab or two at the Cupertino giant. This time is no different as Samsung has just released an ad which clearly and openly ridicules all iPhones in general and even delivers a clever little jab at the mighty iPhone X! Take a look at the video above, just in case you have not seen it yet.

In the off chance that you missed it in the ad, the photo above should show you how the Korean OEM has cleverly poked fun at the iPhone X's twin notches, without even mentioning or showing it anywhere in the ad. It's basically just a guy shifting to a Note 8 after years of being frustrated with his iPhones and their multiple shortcomings. To be honest, great as iPhones might be, their Android counterparts do hold some significant advantages over them, especially when it comes to smartphones such as the stylus touting Note 8.

If the title did not strike you as odd, then that's because you probably don't know about the history of Samsung Galaxy S Active series. Till date, AT&T has been the only carrier to launch and sell the Galaxy S Active series of smartphones. However, according to a recent report by Evan Blass and a number of other rumors, Samsung is about to break the Active series out of the exclusive partnership deal with AT&T to make the S8 Active also available on other carriers such as Sprint and T-Mobile.

The Galaxy S8 Active (SM-G892A) became available for purchase from AT&T back in August, but it seems like the rugged handset will become available across other networks by the time the Holidays arrive (or sooner). Interestingly, we have also seen another model of the S8 Active appear on Wi-Fi Alliance for testing purposes, which had the model number SM-G892U. As "U" most likely stands for "Unlocked," we wouldn't be surprised if Samsung is planning to release an unlocked version of the durable handset as well.

Although the designs seen previously does indicate that the A7 (2017) will sport an Infinity display as seen only on the Galaxy S8, S8+ and the Note 8 so far, we are not sure whether or not it's something that you can bank on. After all, the Infinity display on all these devices has so far been curved and the chances of Samsung introducing curved displays to even their mid-rangers are somewhat unlikely. Even if they do decide to go with a flat, borderless display, that would be something totally new and we have not yet heard of any such production plans! Nevertheless, the A7 (2018) should be a decently powerful handset in the mid-range segment, especially given that it will carry the new chip and 6 gigs of RAM.

The mighty leakster OnLeaks and MySmartPrice has done it again by releasing a video and a number of renders for the Galaxy A5 (2018) and the Galaxy A7 (2018). Do not be alarmed by the lack of flash for the rear cameras in most of the renders though, because they will most certainly be there on the original units when they come out.

Alongside the images and the video, the duo has also leaked the exact physical dimensions of the upcoming mid-rangers from Samsung and also a few other details. Check out the revealed specs and dimensions below.

148.8 x 70.5 x 8.4mm - A5 (2018)

159.6 x 75.6 x 8.2mm - A7 (2018)

Full HD+ Infinity Display (5.5-inch on the A5 and 6-inch on the A7)

Exynos 7885/Snapdragon 660 SoC


32GB internal storage with SD card slot

Android 7.1.1 Nougat

Dual selfie cameras

IP68 certification for dust and water resistance

Always-on Display, Secure Folder, Samsung Pay, etc.

Some of these speculations are a bit ambitious so do keep in mind that it's way too early for confirmed news.
