Smartphones are blurring the line between them and desktop computers nowadays and Xiaomi is about to blur that line even further with their upcoming Mi Note 2 Pro. According to a screenshot posted by AndroidPure, the upcoming handset from the Chinese manufacturer will sport beyond flagship grade specs like 8GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 CPU, clocked at 2.6GHz! The superphone will also have an in-built storage of 256GB and Google's latest and greatest Android OS Nougat will be running on it right out of the box. However, the only catch is that this "screenshot" could very well be a fake, much to our dismay.


As we now know that the previously rumoured launch date of the Mi Note 2 Pro (September 24) turned out to be wrong, it still is a bit of a mystery as to when it will actually be released. Since the Mi5s and Mi5s Plus was just launched in China, the date for the Mi Note 2 Pro's launch could be further away than rumors had originally predicted. In case you are not aware, these two are also packing the Qualcomm SD 821 chipset and enhanced camera capabilities that the OEM has declared to be better than even those sported by the flagship grade Samsung and Apple smartphones. Considering that the smartphones also cost about half of what an Apple iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy Note 7 would cost, things are getting really tight for the big boys.

It has been reported that Xiaomi is working on an upgraded version of the Mi5, dubbed as the Mi5s. The biggest upgrade that this device will feature is a pressure sensitive display which will bring Apple 3D-esque features to their customers. In case you are not aware, a pressure sensitive display allows users to light-press or hard-press the display to bring up various menus, depending on the content.


An ultrasonic fingerprint scanner (Qualcomm made) and dual camera sensors on the back may also be found on the upcoming device. After the LeEco Le Max 2 and the OnePlus 3 was launched a while earlier with 6GB of RAM, it looks like Xiaomi is now ready with a response of their own as 6GB RAM is supposedly an assured feature of the Mi5s. What would be interesting to see is if the Chinese OEM would use the Snapdragon 823 SoC that will supposedly power the Galaxy Note 7 as well, when it comes out in August. If this news got your attention, then you should be happy to know that the Mi5s will apparently be released this year only, along with the rumored Mi Note 2.

Apparently, everybody doesn't believe that one flagship per year is enough! The recently released P9 is the king of Huawei smartphones right now, but it is about to be dethroned as Huawei plans to release the Mate 9 by the end of 2016. Phone Arena adds that a late 2016 release is an educated guess because the Mate 8 was indeed revealed towards the end of 2015.


The rumored Kirin 960 SoC will power the device, placing it above the P9, which sports the Kirin 955 chipset. Expectations from the camera department are very high as the rumored 20-megapixel dual sensors at the back will presumably be designed by Leica, who had helped Huawei earlier to build the P9's camera setup as well.


Huawei has never exactly skimped out on power when it comes to the Chinese manufacturer's top-tier handsets, so we expect the Mate 9 to be packed to the gill with the latest hardware. At this point though, it is too early to predict other specifications of the device because even the prototypes are probably not ready yet. Nonetheless, we expect at least 4GB of RAM (if not 6GB) to accompany the Kirin 960, along with a powerful battery, a large display and a next-gen fingerprint sensor.

In a market that's filled with smartphones and tablets which sport 2GB of RAM and where 4GB is still the choice for plenty of flagship devices, LeEco is probably developing a smartphone that will sport 8GB of RAM! Considering the fact that we have only just started to see 6GB RAM in a smartphone, this is surprising news indeed.


According to the rumor, the upcoming flagship smartphone from LeEco will not only have 8GB of RAM, but it will also sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 CPU that's significantly more powerful than even the mighty SD 820. If the rumor is true, then the phone will possibly be almost as powerful as a mid-range laptop running on Windows. There should be a 25-megapixel rear camera accompanying all that processing power as well. The report suggests that it should be available for purchase at a price of around CNY 3,000/€405/$455, which is certainly not that much, considering the hardware!


This news, if proven true, will definitely raise the question, how much is too much? Nonetheless, with the advent of Android N, which will support significantly better graphics than Marshmallow, the OS might actually be able to make use of all that memory. As the RAM within an Android device is shared in-between the processor and the graphics card, the memory is undeniably responsible for the device's graphical performance.

The Galaxy S5 was unveiled in 2014 as their flagship device by Samsung and back then, it was a pioneer in terms of the innovations that it brought to the Samsung smartphone line-up. It was the first Samsung smartphone ever to sport a heartbeat sensor, a fingerprint sensor, as well as having dust and water resistance capabilities. Nonetheless, it is over two year old now and smartphones do have a tendency to age fast. If you have a S5, then you would be pleased to know that Samsung has not forgotten about it yet. The latest reports suggest that after rolling Android M as an OTA update in South Korea earlier, the Korean manufacturer has now started to roll out the same updates for the S5 in Trinidad and Tobago as well.


As far as we know, the latest updates are being released for the SM-G900M and earlier, they were upgrading the SM-G900L in South Korea with Android Marshmallow. Provided that you are in Trinidad and Tobago, go to Settings, About device and Check for updates to see if the update has arrived on your Galaxy S5 yet. Once the 1.47GB package does arrive and you complete the update, the Android version on your phone should change to 6.0.1 and the firmware version to G900MUBU1CPC3.


If you are neither a resident of South Korea or Trinidad and Tobago, you will have to wait longer for the update unfortunately. If it is any consolation, the update is coming to your Samsung Galaxy S5 for sure, albeit a little later.

Flight authorities had started to show concern regarding the use of the Note 7 by passengers while onboard ever since it was proved beyond doubt that a very rare number of the smartphones do indeed at times, explode! Cebu Pacific Air has now officially banned the use of the smartphone on their flights. Keep in mind though that you can still carry it around with you, but as long as you switch it off and don't attempt to charge it. Here's the official statement.


"In light of the recent recall of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 devices due to safety issues, Cebu Pacific (CEB) advises passengers that the usage and charging of the device are prohibited onboard all CEB and Cebgo flights beginning today, September 11, 2016, until further notice..."



"Galaxy Note 7 devices must also not be stowed in checked baggage, but may be hand-carried as long as the device is turned off at all times inside the aircraft. We sincerely hope for our passengers' full cooperation, as the safety of everyone onboard our flights remains our utmost priority,"



The US Federal Aviation Administration is speaking along the same lines and the instructions are identical to what was stated by Cebu in the above excerpt. Judging by the fact that Samsung itself has requested all users around the globe to stop using the Note 7 and go to the service centre for an exchange that will be processed as soon as possible, it might be a good idea to heed to the warnings, if you have not already.

The Galaxy S7 is still going hot and we already have rumors circulating about next year's Samsung Galaxy S8. Among these rumors, the most popular one seems to be concerned with the display of the flagship smartphone. It speculates that the S8 may feature an Ultra High Definition 4K Super AMOLED panel. Considering that the display will only be a 5.5-inch one, some may ask if it is even necessary to make it 4K, and they would probably be right. There's a limit to what the human eye can perceive and on a 5.5-inch display, UHD might just be overkill. Nonetheless, the UHD resolution would definitely improve VR experience on the S8 and we are sure that is the main reason as to why Samsung might opt for such a high resolution display in the first place.



This assumption or rumor originated after Samsung showcased one of its 5.5-inch Ultra High Definition panels at the SID tradeshow, 2016. Since it has been predicted by analysts that Samsung will start manufacturing these displays on an industrial scale in a matter of months, it would actually not be very surprising to see the panel making its debut with the S8. There is also the trend of Samsung endowing its flagship smartphones with a higher resolution display after every two years and it has already been two years since the S-series started sporting QHD panels (S6 and S7).

Are you a fan of the curved or Edge displays by Samsung? If not so, then you better start getting used to them because Samsung might not make flat screen variants for its future Galaxy S smartphones. In the words of Koh Dong-jin, who is the president of Samsung Mobiles,


"Samsung has considered that it would make the Edge display as the identity of the Galaxy S smartphone line-up if the company can provide consumers differentiated user experience through software and user-friendly functions (for the curved screen)."


We are pretty much sure that the reception and sales of the newly released Galaxy Note 7 with dual curved display will play a very important role in determining the future of the Galaxy S8. As no flat screen Note 7 variants were released this year, if this move turns out to be a success, the S8 may very well, follow the same trend next year. Even if they do not eliminate the flat display completely by 2017, the focus will definitely shift onto the Edge displays, provided the Note 7 manages to satisfy the customers as much as Samsung hopes it will.

The fact that Samsung is working on a smartphone that will sport a foldable display is old news now, but we got to know just recently that two such phones are in development instead of one. Bloomberg reports that the first device will fold in half from the middle, much in the same way as a "cosmetic compact." The second device will initially appear to be a smartphone with a 5-inch display, but can be unfolded to add 3 more inches to the display real estate, making the screen a tablet-sized 8-inch one.


We have been hearing about the "Project Valley" for a long time now and rumors had previously suggested a 2017 release date. The latest report affirms those rumors as it indicates that we might be able to see the foldable phone at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona. We are excited to find out what Samsung comes up with, when it's released. It sounds amazing to be able to carry around an 8-inch display in your pocket, but we will have to wait and see, if the manufacturer manages to deliver a device that actually works as well in real life scenarios as it seems would do, on paper. What do you think about the foldable smartphone?

An iris scanner has been beckoning for Samsung phones through rumors for a long time now and if the latest trademarks registered by Samsung at the European Union are any indication, then it will finally make its first appearance on the Galaxy Note 6.


If you are wondering what made us believe that the two trademarks are related to the biometric locking technology, let us inform you that they are quite literally termed as "Samsung Iris" and "Samsung Eyeprint."


Even though the Korean smartphone giant has confirmed absolutely nothing about the Galaxy Note 6 so far, we are pretty sure that they would not feature such a premium piece of technology on anything but a flagship device. As far as we know, there is only one upcoming flagship device from Samsung in the near future and that's the Galaxy Note 6.


After being rumoured to feature such whopping specs as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 chipset and 6GB of RAM, the iris scanner looks to be another feather in the next Note's metaphorical cap! If all these rumors turn out to be true, then the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is going to be a supremely powerful device to say the least.

Foldable displays were showcased by Samsung earlier but smartphones based on that technology never really hit the market in 2016 as many expected them to. The famous Samsung Project Valley is supposedly a development that involves the task of building a foldable smartphone. Rumors surrounding it suggested in 2015 that Samsung will launch their first foldable smartphone in January, 2016. As that did not happen, the rumors had come down a few notches since.


New life was breathed into the rumors when a fresh report from South Korea came in a while ago. It suggested that Samsung will start the production of foldable displays on an industrial scale by the end of 2016 itself. It also adds that these displays are for a device that will be powered by either the Qualcomm Snapdragon 620 or 820, along with 3GB of RAM. Apparently, the 7-inch tablet-sized display of the device will turn into a more manageable 5-inch one when necessary and vice-versa.


There are quite a few leaked pictures from Project Valley that gives us a an impression of what this device might look like when it comes out, but the originality of those snaps are not beyond doubt. Nonetheless, we will hopefully know what exactly is going on in a few months time.

A lot depends on Samsung's next flagship and the Korean giant knows it more than any of us. It is for this reason that the entire world is expecting the Galaxy S8 to be packed to the gills with high-end and innovative features. A new feature was added to that list of "expectations" earlier when a report came in announcing that the S8's display might be pressure sensitive. What this means is that the user will be able to apply different levels of pressure on the display to bring up different menus, corresponding to the content on-screen. If that reminds you of Apple's 3D-Touch, then you are absolutely right because that's basically the same technology.


Although it would be a first for any Samsung smartphone till date, Samsung is no stranger to pressure-sensitive or Force Touch displays because Samsung Display is currently responsible for manufacturing and supplying the bulk of the pressure sensitive displays which some of the top-end Huawei smartphones use now. Therefore, we wouldn't really be surprised if this rumor does turn out to be true. If you haven't already, check out our roundup of what the rumor mill is expecting from the Galaxy S8 next year, as well as its likely release date.

After forming the GVRA with Sony, Acer, Facebook, HTC and Google, Samsung is reportedly looking to launch its first ever AR (augmented reality) headset. Additionally, the company is also in the process of bringing forth the next Gear VR headset as well. Apparently, it was vice-president Sung-Hoon Hong himself who had revealed the aforementioned information at the Virtual Reality Summit in San Diego.


"Samsung's hologram technology is really, really realistic. It looks really touchable," - Sung-Hoon Hong.


In more of what he said at the summit, it might have been indicated that the next Gear VR headset is going to debut at the Mobile World Congress in February, 2017. Considering that it was only a few months back that Samsung had launched the last Gear VR, along with the disastrous Galaxy Note 7, we suggest that you take this news with a pinch of salt.


If you are excited about the augmented reality project, the report mentions that Samsung is planning to target businesses with this upcoming headset, rather than direct consumers. Even then, it is too early in the day to predict where and in which way the AR project will be heading in the future. A startup named Magic Leap was mentioned by Hoon according to the report and speculations suggest that this has something to do with the AR project in question here.

It was just yesterday that we brought to you images of a leaked case which provided us with multiple alleged external details of the upcoming Galaxy S8. Take a look at another one today coming in from Ghostek, featuring one of their Atomic Shock resistant cases for the S8. Before we delve into the details, keep in mind that this is just a render and nothing is guaranteed to be right at all.



We can see a single rear camera, which is consistent with all the recent rumors, but the cut-out on the case itself is suspiciously big enough for a dual camera module. No fingerprint scanners on the back and a lacking Home button in front indicates that Samsung is opting for an optical fingerprint sensor which will be placed under the glass. Just like the render by Slashgear had suggested, both the volume keys and the Power button can be seen on the left side.



Do you like what you see? Or do you think it's a complete hogwash? Let us know in the comments section below. In the meanwhile, we will have to wait a little while longer to see what is what as Samsung prepares the S8 for a mid-April launch (or is it going to be a February launch?).

A recent report by Korea Economic Daily states that The Murata Manufacturing Company will be supplying Samsung with a percentage of the batteries which the OEM will need to power the upcoming Galaxy S8. The Japanese company came into limelight in 2016, when it gained control over Sony's battery manufacturing unit. If this report is true, it puts to rest the rumor that LG will be supplying the Galaxy S8 with a percentage of its batteries.


However, the amount of batteries which will (reportedly) be supplied by Murata is not really significant (2% - 8%). Samsung's own battery division (Samsung SDI) will be supplying the S8 with most of its battery packs. Incidentally, Samsung SDI was also responsible for making the first batch of faulty batteries which caused the Galaxy Note 7 to explode in the first place. The production process has since been revamped and improved upon significantly with an investment of $128 million, according to Samsung. Let's just hope that it was enough to prevent any future disasters.

The Galaxy C9 Pro was released just a few months ago with a mid-range SD 653 SoC and 6GB of RAM (Samsung's first and only till date). The C7 Pro had a more modest 4GB RAM and a less powerful SD 626 chip inside. However, both devices did pack 64GB in-built storage right out of the box. In a move that's becoming typical among all smartphone manufacturers, the South Korean tech giant is about to launch 128GB versions of these two devices in the near future as well.


According to multiple reports from various media platforms on the internet, 128GB versions of both the devices have apparently made an appearance on the Chinese certification site TENAA. In fact, reports are also suggesting that even the Galaxy C5 Pro will be receiving a similar upgrade to its internal storage. There is no news on whether or not Samsung will make these handsets China exclusives first and then release them to the other countries just as it did with the C-series initially. We will find out soon enough. In the meanwhile, let us know if this is what you wanted from Samsung?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may sport a bigger display than the Galaxy S8+, but only just at 6.3-inches, according to a rumor on Weibo. Given that the S8+ already sports a humongous 6.2 inch display, we are not exactly complaining. However, this report does contradict previous reports which stated that the Note 8 will possibly sport a 6.4-inch display, which would have brought it to about the same size as the bezel-less Xiaomi Mi Mix from 2016.


The aspect ratio will remain the same at 18.5:9, as reported by the rumor. Although most other specifications mentioned by the rumor remains constant with what has so far been predicted by leaksters and enthusiasts around the internet, this particular report suggests that the Galaxy Note 8 will neither be the first, nor be the only Samsung device to sport a dual camera setup at its back in 2017. The Galaxy X foldable smartphone will allegedly debut before the Note 8 with a dual camera module. We are very apprehensive about the authenticity of this one though, because of two reasons. Firstly, the Galaxy X rumors have been going around forever, without any solid reason to believe that it's about to come out anytime soon. Secondly, it would make no sense for Samsung to debut its first dual camera setup ever on an experimental smartphone ahead of the immensely popular Note line-up. Stay tuned to YouMobile for more updates as they develop.

The term "borderless display" doesn't sound as amazing as it did a few months ago because almost every company out there has a model with minimal bezels now. I say minimal because no phone can truly skip bezels entirely, at least not yet. However, a latest rumor brought forth by SamMobile seems to indicate that the Galaxy S9 will take the term bezel-less even more seriously than before by opting for a screen-to-body ratio as high as 90%! That's an improvement over the already impressive 84% scree-to-body ratio which the Galaxy S8 sports.


The images you see here have been leaked from a smartphone case manufacturer, Ghostek and as you can probably guess, the case is indeed designed for the upcoming Galaxy S9. Aside from the narrower bezels, if the images are accurate, it looks like Samsung will finally be positioning the fingerprint scanner in the middle of the S9's back and that would definitely be an improvement. What it would also mean is that the S9 won't have a fingerprint scanner embedded into the display either.

It almost feels like every major Samsung smartphone in recent history has been released with at least one major flaw and just to add to that cliché, new reports from several users on XDA forums are claiming that this time around, Samsung might need to fix the fingerprint scanner even before the phone has begun to sale officially! Apparently, quite a few of the S9 and S9+ units are exhibiting a strange issue where the fingerprint scanner stops responding completely and can only be fixed by rebooting the device. Let's hope that the issue is only software-related and can be easily fixed with an update, because if it isn't, then Samsung is going to have to suffer huge losses.


SamMobile has officially asked Samsung about the issue, but no reply has been provided yet. We will keep you updated about this, so stay tuned and hold off on buying the S9/S9+ for a while.

The myth of the Samsung foldable smartphone continues as the latest rumors and reports are pointing towards some additional info. Apparently, the Galaxy X, aka Samsung's first foldable smartphone is coming in 2019, but it will be expensive, very expensive! If you though that latest flagship smartphones touching the $1,000 mark was crazy, wait till the Galaxy X hits the market with a price tag close to 2 million won or $1900!


The 7.3-inch (rumored) foldable phone will either carry two or even three separate AMOLED displays which will lock together into one single device on opening, or there will be just one amazing, foldable display. Given the rumored prize tag though, it better be amazing! In any case, the price tag might just put off buyers because shelling out that kind of money for one smartphone is neither feasible nor intelligent for most users, but then again, you may never know! The phone could make an appearance at the CES 2019 first, but it will likely be a private showing and limited to the eyes of the investors and partners only.

If you are even remotely into gaming, then you have probably already heard about Fortnite, thanks to the game's soaring popularity. Cashing in on the title's fame, the developer, Epic Games is on the verge of releasing an Android version of the game, but rumor has it that Fortnite for Android will be a timed exclusive for the Galaxy Note 9.


We are using the term "timed exclusive" because unlike console exclusives such as God of War or Uncharted, Fortnite for Android will eventually make its way to all supported Android devices, but for the first 30 days from the handset's release, it would be exclusively playable only on the upcoming Galaxy Note 9. 9to5Google reports that this is a result of Epic Games teaming up with Samsung for the promotion of the handset and the early adopters of the Note 9 will get added bonuses. The bonuses may include in-game currency (V-Bucks) worth up to $150. Just in case you are not into Fortnite, you will also be given the option to choose a pair of AKG earphones of the same value instead. We will find out more as we head towards the August 9 launch date.

The Google Pixel and Pixel XL were without a doubt, the fastest phones running on Android in 2016 and early 2017. While that title might be up for debate now with the launch of a number of smartphones with the next gen flagship processors in 2017, they continue to remain two of the fastest phones that you can buy. In terms of software optimization and camera performance however, they are arguably, still unmatched. With all that said and done, if there was only one gripe about those two smartphones, it would be the design. They just look so outdated compared to the competition, especially with those giant top and bottom bezels. Well, the bad news is that the design may not change much unfortunately.


If the latest report by Forbes turns out to be true, then HTC will be making this year's Pixel phones as well and they will largely reflect the same disappointing design language as that of the HTC U11. In order to find out more about how HTC Soku came to this conclusion by going through the U11's system files, check out the Forbes article here.

Before you start to think that this is a clickbait post, let me tell you upfront that no, Apple is not shutting down the iPhone because there is absolutely no reason to! In spite of all the criticism and questionable decisions by the company, Apple remains the most profitable smartphone seller in the whole world and they are certainly not going to shut down one of their most lucrative businesses by any means. Nevertheless, the iPhone X2 or XI or 11 will probably never come to be because the Cupertino giant might be changing the way they name these devices.


Apple may simply choose to call their lower end smartphones just "iPhones" and their higher end models "iPhone X." So how will you know that it's the latest model and not the outdated one from the previous year? Well, the year of release will probably be mentioned on the box as the only indicator of that fact. Which means that the next iPhone X that comes out might be called iPhone X (2018). Do you think this will happen and will you like it if it does? Let us know in the comments.

Nexus

 

As we used to every year, Google will release a New flagship Nexus device to set the standards of Android. The last one was the Motorola-made Nexus 6 that was launched with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

 

A New rumor is spreading around, the rumor is saying that Google will be working with LG Mobile (Again!) on the next Nexus device codenamed "N000".

 

Nexus 8

 

Google's Android engineers paid a visit to LG's Display and R&D facilities in Korea apart from other units responsible for wireless charging parts, and Optical Image Stabilization. The details are yet to be confirmed so take this information with a grain of salt. If this happens, it would be LG's third Nexus smartphone after the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5.

There have been quite a few rumors going around the internet recently about Motorola's next flagship smartphone, the Moto X4. Those rumors found new vigor after an image of the X4 was posted by hellomotoHK on Google Plus. The same post managed to start another rumor about the smartphone as it hinted towards a release date that is set on August 24.


As expected, the image shows us a glass-metal body, with glass in front and metal on the back. On the white model, two black dots can be seen flanking the physical Home button in the middle, which probably also doubles as the fingerprint scanner. The volume and the power buttons seem to be equally spaced on the top-right side of the device.


The circular camera protrusion at the back has been the subject of much speculation, but all we can see from the picture is the Moto logo and the dual tone flash. We agree that the image does indicate that the X4 might house a USB Type-C port, but will have to wait to confirm that one.


Earlier, Android Headlines had reported that the flagship smartphone will feature a 5.5-inch 1440p AMOLED display and will be powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset. We wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be true as the Snapdragon 820 is currently powering most Android flagships in 2016 and the Motorola team is known to use QHD AMOLED displays in their high-end phones earlier as well. We will find out more in the upcoming months, leading to August 24.

The Galaxy Tab A 8.0 has already received the update and the premium Galaxy Tab S2 had received it even earlier. Unfortunately, the Galaxy Tab A 9.7 has been left unattended for a while now. The good news is that it's probably going to change very soon as Samsung will likely be dishing out Nougat to the Tab A 9.7 (SM-T550) in the coming weeks. We don't have any official confirmation regarding this but then again, when do we ever?


As is often the case with these reports, this one comes to us thanks to a leak on Wi-Fi Alliance, where the tablet was seen running on Nougat for Wi-Fi certification purposes. Any phone that is seen on the site running on a new firmware version, usually gets the firmware within the next few weeks. SamMobile is of the opinion that it should take anything between four to five weeks to be more precise, until the OTA package starts rolling out in Europe.

The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy Note 8 are the current kings of Samsung's smartphone lineup, so it's no surprise that Samsung is already working towards getting the latest version of Android ready for these smartphones. However, it seems like the Oreo update will arrive on the Galaxy S8 series sooner than Nougat 7.0 did on the S7 lineup. We have come to this conclusion after finding out that the Galaxy S8 was seen on Geekbench yesterday, testing out an Android Oreo powered firmware. It was spotted by GalaxyClub and was brought to mass attention by SamMobile.


You can check out the benchmark results in the screenshot above and apart from the OS version, nothing much seems to have changed though as the scores are pretty much par for the S8. After the Galaxy S8, S8+ and the Note 8, it is expected that Samsung will update the S7 lineup next.

It always feels good to know that Samsung has not forgotten its older handsets and that would without doubt be the case if this little rumor turns out to be true. The rumor in question indicates that Samsung might be planning to extend the Android 8.0 Oreo to the Galaxy S6 line-up. That would indeed be quite surprising given that the handset is now almost three years old at this point!


The rumor originated after a Reddit user initiated a conversation with a Samsung Rep which resulted in the representative telling the user that his Galaxy S6 will be updated to Android Oreo! Take a look at the screenshots yourselves to know what we are talking about here. The most logical explanation to this would be that it was a mistake from the side of the representative and little else, but if it does turn out to be true, nobody would really mind! Besides, if you go through the conversation, it does look like the Samsung Rep is pretty confident about the information.
