There was a time when the only real competitor Samsung had was Apple, but those times have changed and they have changed a lot. Make no mistake, Apple is still Samsung's biggest adversary in many ways, but the Cupertino giant is no longer the only concern for Samsung as Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo are taking the market by storm by offering high-end hardware at competitive prices. Nevertheless, even amongst so much speculation, Samsung has managed to hold the number one position as the leading smartphone seller at the end of Q1 2018. The stats are not as impressive as they once were and in certain markets, Samsung has clearly lost a lot of business, but even then, the Korean MNC is still the global leader in total smartphone sales across the world. Check out some of the stats below, as presented by the analytics farm Counterpoint.



·         Samsung shipped a total of 78 (22%) million smartphones in this quarter, out of the 360 million total


·         Apple came second with 52.2 million (15%)


·         Huawei holds the third position with 39.6 million shipments (11%)


·         Apple remains the number one seller in North America (38%), with Samsung coming in at second (27%)


·         In Asia, Huawei, Xiaomi and Samsung are tied for the first spot with 13% each, while Apple has slipped into the second position with 12%


·         Samsung is the dominant smartphone seller in Latin America, Middle East & Africa and Europe with 37%, 28$ and 33$ of the market share respectively



We have just entered June and we already have a pretty convincing image of the Galaxy Note 9 to show you that definitely is the clearest and most realistic picture that we have seen of the upcoming smartphone so far. The photos were created by Phone Arena and we must admit that if this is a render, it's a damn realistic one! In any case, there's little doubt that this is how the Note 9 will actually look like, given that the Note 9 tempered glass image, which was leaked by @UniverseIce earlier, matches this render perfectly.



As you can see, just like the Galaxy S9 and S9+, the Note 9 will look quite similar to its predecessor, but will pack in a lot more power under the hood. In fact, it would be quite interesting to see if the recent rumor about the Note 9 sporting 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of RAM does turn out to be true!

The in-display fingerprint scanner showing up on a Samsung device has now been a rumor for years and although it isn't nearly as old as the famous foldable smartphone rumors, they share a similarity in the fact that they both seem to take Samsung forever to release. While the foldable smartphone has been confirmed by the President of Samsung Mobiles, the in-display fingerprint scanner has so far only been a thing of speculations. However, some reports from South Korea are claiming that it is not a rumor or an expected feature anymore, but a confirmed feature that the Galaxy S10 will sport. To top things off, reports also indicate that Qualcomm is going to be the company that will supply Samsung with this elusive piece of tech.


If the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner is indeed supplied by Qualcomm, it would lead to the question as to how the Exynos versions of the Galaxy S10 will support the tech ? Will Samsung release only future Qualcomm chip-powered versions of the Galaxy S10 ? Or will Samsung be making their own ultrasonic fingerprint scanners as well? We will let you know more on this as we find out ourselves.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are great devices and among the best smartphones released in 2018, just like the Galaxy S series smartphones are expected to be every year. However, the S9 wasn't as well received as the S8 because they look almost identical and a good number of the smartphones suffered from poor call quality issues. However, as the release of the Galaxy Note 9 draws ever closer, Samsung might be all set to surprise their customers with an unexpected boost in specs.


According to an unrevealed source online, Samsung is considering the possibility of putting 8GB RAM and 512GB internal storage in the Galaxy Note 9! This isn't really confirmed news though, given that the source himself admits to the fact that Samsung is only toying with the idea and has not implemented it yet. In any case, would you like to see a Note 9 with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal storage, or would you prefer it if Samsung stuck with the 6GB formula for now and kept the prices down?

The future of the tablet is uncertain as the Android tablet market is not doing well and the iPads are only just hanging on to a fraction of their previous sales numbers. Nevertheless, Samsung has not given up on tablets yet because we have news of two tablets for you today; both running on Android and both manufactured by the Korean giant.


As can be seen from the screenshot, the Galaxy Tab S4 aka SM-T835 has made an appearance on Geekbench with scores that are at par with last-gen flagship handsets (S8, S8+ and Note 8) running on the SD 835. The tablet seems to be running with support from 4GB of RAM and on Android 8.1 Oreo. I will never understand why Samsung keeps on launching their flagship tablets with outdated chips from last year!


The SM-T590, which is most probably the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2018) was also revealed earlier when it went through the Eurasian Economic Commission. It seems like Samsung might have slowed down their tablet release cycles, but they have not given up on them completely.
