According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, Vice-Chairman Lee Jae-yong of Samsung has mentioned that the S8 will feature an "improved camera" as well as a "slick design." While this certainly doesn't say anything significant about the device to be honest, it just goes to show that Samsung is now trying to center media attention towards the Galaxy S8 and away from the Note 7.


As Lee Jae-yong specifically mentioned the camera of the upcoming Galaxy S8, it could indicate that Samsung might really be opting for a dual camera setup this time around. If the rumors are true, then one 16-megapixel sensor and one 8-megapixel sensor will be embedded in a single rear mounted module.


The slick design mentioned by the soon to be Chairman of Samsung on the other hand, could point to the "full-screen" display that we have only heard about via rumors so far. However, it's worth mentioning that Xiaomi has already beaten Samsung to it with the beautiful Mi Mix, when it comes to the all-screen display. Let's see if Samsung can top that at the MWC, 2017 next year in February.

The CES 2018 is already on its way and it is quite likely that Samsung will be launching a teaser at the show. However, before that happens, we have a treat for you, in case you are one of the millions of fans waiting for the Korean OEM to release their next flagship handset. According to the latest leak, the single camera on the Galaxy S9 will sport an aperture of f/1.5, while the dual camera module will likely feature at least one camera with an f/1.4 aperture.



Given that the f/1.7 aperture single lens cameras of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ produce beautiful images in lowlight, one can only imagine what Samsung would be able to do with such huge apertures! In case you are not aware, the lower the number is, the better the photos turn out to be in lowlight situations. Currently, there is no other smartphone in the market that can boast of such excellent apertures and if this does turn out to be true, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ cameras could be setting new benchmarks for the next gen smartphone cameras in 2018.

A 403MB update has started to make its way onto the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 smartphones in Europe. The OTA update comes straight from Samsung and brings the March security patch with it as expected. Although Samsung continues to support the Note 4 with security updates, any hopes you may have of the old Note getting updated to Android Nougat is unfortunately, false hope! Samsung will never update the Note 4 to Nougat and it will continue to function on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 for as long as it can.


The firmware version on the handset is N910FXXS1DQC3 and is currently only live in Europe. Also, no carrier specific versions have started receiving it as of now. The March SMR contains fixes for 73 issues specific to the Android OS and about twelve of Samsung's own fixes for internal vulnerabilities exclusive to Samsung smartphones. Apart from the security patch, the update also brings improvements in battery life and better performance on a daily basis with it.

If you happen to own a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge on AT&T, you will be receiving a huge security update pretty soon. The size of the update is not really that big, but the 135MB OTA update is big in the sense that it's an important one which addressees multiple issues and vulnerabilities on the two handsets. In fact, one might even be tempted to say that the update came a bit later than expected, given that it's almost the end of October!


Aside from the September and October security updates, the package also contains the necessary BlueBorne patch which had threatened millions of Android, iOS and Windows devices last month. In case you don't know how it affects you, know that your security would be compromised as soon as you turn on your Bluetooth, irrespective of whether or not it is in discoverable mode. The good news is, you don't need to worry about any of that after you download and install this patch, so hurry up!
