Samsung is taking secrecy very seriously this time around as they had taken the time to officially alert all its employees and supply chain partners against leaking any confidential info about the upcoming Galaxy S8 in particular. However, it doesn't seem to be working too well as someone working for one of Samsung's supply chain partners has leaked some information about the S8, almost as if in response to the warning/request.
According to the report, the Galaxy S8 will inherit the iris scanner from the Note 7, while also being endowed with a dual-lens camera setup at its back. To be frank, this isn't really much of news as we had reported this quite a while ago. Nevertheless, the new leak obviously strengthens those rumors even further. Other expected new features of the S8 include a Full Screen display without the physical Home button, a 10nm chip and 6GB of RAM. In spite of Samsung trying to keep the lid on tight, we are pretty sure more rumors and leaks will begin to pop up as the calendar continues to move towards February, 2017.

Samsung has already replaced most of the hazardous Galaxy Note 7 smartphones in the US and has even restarted selling the phone with a guarantee for safety. However, things just took a turn for the worst yesterday when a Galaxy Note 7 caught fire within a Southwest Airlines plane (994) that was heading to Baltimore from Louisville.
Brian Green stated that the phone was turned off and in his pocket when he noticed smoke coming from it. He threw it onto the floor, where it then proceeded to burn the carpeting and even scorched the metal floor beneath it. In Green's own words, a "thick grey-green angry smoke" was emitting from the smartphone. The plane was evacuated immediately after.
The box as shown by the owner clearly indicates that the device was supposed to be safe due to the black square icon that you can see right beside the model number (SM-N930A). He further added that it even had the green battery icon used by Samsung to assure safety of the device. The phone was at about 80-percent charge when this incident occurred and according to Mr. Greene, he had used a wireless charger to charge it previously.
The burned Note 7 is being investigated by the Louisville Fire Department (arson division), while the CPSC has already started an investigation on the incident. Considering that even checking the device's IMEI number with the recall eligibility checker app confirms that this was indeed a "safe" unit, things are looking VERY bad for Samsung right now. On being questioned by The Verge, Samsung had this to say;
"Until we are able to retrieve the device, we cannot confirm that this incident involves the new Note7. We are working with the authorities and Southwest now to recover the device and confirm the cause. Once we have examined the device we will have more information to share."

Samsung has issued a court filing regarding its collaboration with Microsoft on Windows Phone and states that it refuses to fulfill its end of the deal as it now sees the software giant as a direct competitor. The business collaboration agreement between the two companies sees Samsung pay Microsoft north of $1 billion in patent royalties and $6.9 million interest due to payment delays. Microsoft took action in early August in an attempt to collect the cash.
However, that's unlikely to happen if the New York federal court, where the filing is made, decides in favor of Samsung. The company says that because of the Nokia acquisition, Microsoft violated its 2011 deal with Samsung. According to the deal, Samsung had to pay Microsoft royalties in exchange for a patent license on its Android smartphones.
"The agreements, now between competitors, invite charges of collusion," Samsung said in the filing. However, Microsoft won't give up and is "confident" in the strength of its case. We'll continue to cover the development of the court case between the two companies and inform you if Microsoft will get its patent licensing fees or if Samsung will save $1 billion.
Bad news for Samsung keeps piling up as the electronic giant's shares just dropped by 1% at the stock market during busy hours yesterday. This was an obvious reaction to Samsung's vice-chairman Lee Jae-yong getting arrested hours earlier. He has been linked to bribery charges associated with the massive scandal involving President Park Geun-hye and her friend Choi Soon-sil. The court has found the evidence sufficient for it to allow the detention of Lee for up to 20 days, before indictment. As you can imagine, the shares falling is just one of many problems that the conglomerate will be facing, since their leader and soon to be chairman is now out of the picture.
The good news is that this fall in share value is very likely to be only a temporary setback and actually has no relation with Samsung's business in any way. It is believed to be an effect brought on by negative sentiments towards the shameful incident. The last few months have not been kind on Samsung's reputation. After the exploding Galaxy Note 7, Samsung was hoping to build back its reputation as a manufacturer. However, the leader being convicted of white collar crimes that have affected the very economy of South Korea is not going to help that cause!

The Galaxy Note 7 Fan Editions are a huge success in South Korea as all retailers are reporting that they are being sold out like hotcakes over there (No puns intended)! Only 4000,000 units had been made available so far and as far as previous reports were concerned, that was going to be the extent of it. In a somewhat predictable turn of events, latest reports are suggesting that the Note 7 FE could also be making their way into other nations on account of the excellent response at home.
Whether you will be getting to buy one in the Unites States or not is uncertain at this point of time but latest reports are suggesting that Samsung may just launch the Note 7 FE in select markets across the world. While the roughly $605 price tag is somewhat steep for a smartphone that's rocking a chip from 2016 and has such an infamous history, people don't seem to be too concerned with that at this point of time! If it came to your country, would you be buying one or would you be saving up for the Galaxy Note 8?

The Galaxy S10 series of smartphones might be the talk of the town at the moment, but in many of our opinions, Samsung made a much more significant announcement earlier today by announcing the much awaited and rumored foldable Galaxy smartphone, aka the Galaxy Fold. It has been in rumors for 5 years straight and now that it is finally, almost here, it is STILL a prototype! Nonetheless, check out the key facts about the Galaxy Fold below, which will supposedly release in April.
· The Cover Display is 4.6-inch with a resolution of 840 x 1960, at 21:9 aspect ratio
· The Fold unravels to a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display with a resolution of 1536 x 2152 at 4.2:3 aspect ratio
· The multi-geared hinge will last hundreds of thousands of uses
· There is a corner notch to house the two selfie cams on the main screen
· The rear camera setup is a tri-camera module
While it seemed like an uniquely impressive device during the presentation, for what it tends to achieve, there is no denying the fact that the Galaxy Fold is a clunky device that costs almost $2000! Will you be buying one if it comes out in April? Or will you wait till 2020? By which time, Samsung is almost guaranteed to slim down the device with better design and will probably price it a lot cheaper too.
Apple is planning to add additional security measures to its iCloud service in the wake of the celebrity nude pictures leak, chief executive Tim Cook has said.
Apple has stated that its iCloud servers were not compromised, but it has indicated that some accounts may have not been adequately protected, such as, weak passwords and easy security questions. CEO Tim Cook further widened the blame blanket that some account holders might have fallen for a phishing scam.
The Company will alert users through email and push notifications when someone tries to change an account password, restore iCloud data to a new device, or when a device logs into an account for the first time, Mr Cook told the Wall Street Journal. The newly announced measures will go into effect over the next two weeks.
A bug in the HealthKit suite is forcing Apple to remove all apps using the framework from the App Store. The HealtKit enabled apps were supposed to launch with iOS 8 today, but this is postponed indefinitely.
An Apple representative has said that the company is working on a solution to the problem, which is likely to come out in the next couple of weeks.
Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller made this statement :
"We discovered a bug that prevents us from making HealthKit apps available on iOS 8 today. We're working quickly to have the bug fixed in a software update and have HealthKit apps available by the end of the month." - Apple
Apple's iPhone had been an unbeatable king of the smartphone industry in China till Huawei came. But after the Trump administration imposes bans on the company and the Biden administration continues the previous restriction on Huawei, its old rivals are getting the ground again.
Almost 92.40 million smartphones were shipped to China only in the first quarter of the year, with Vivo getting the first position with around 23% share and its sister company Oppo following behind with a 22% share of the market. Huawei got a really bad hit and could manage to get third place. Xiaomi took fourth place with 16% sales and Apple's share dive up to 30% more than it was last time and moved to fifth spot.
All major smartphone manufacturers experience a good rise in sales figures in China. Apple's net sales in China almost doubled year after year to $17.70 billion in three months alone. Apple's CEO Tim Cook seems to be quite happy with the sales results and issued a statement "We've been especially pleased by the customer response in China to the iPhone 12 family.". Huawei's share shrank unlike other companies and went from 41% to 16% in a year alone. "Leading vendors are racing to the top of the market, and there was an unusually high number of smartphone launches this quarter compared with Q1 2020 or even Q4 2020," said Canalys analyst Amber Liu.
Huawei has already sold its sister company Honor to a consortium of companies, to save it from US sanctions. Huawei has already lost the major chip and software suppliers and is now struggling to sustain itself. The company has recently launched its own version of the operating system to compensate for the ban but it still has a long way to go to deliver a royal comeback. And we have to wait and see where the events leading to the industry.
As per @Ricciolo1, a well-known leakster, Sony is aiming to upgrade its Xperia Z5 series to Android 6.90 Marshmallow in January and for older models the same update is planned shortly after the Z5.
Marshmallow comes with a bunch of improvements, optimizations and features that'd be very useful to any smartphone. Battery life improvements and performance boosts are the most noticeable changes to the software. But this is a rumour; nothing is fixed and there is no solid timeline. So take this with a pinch of salt.
Sony has been really good with getting the older devices updated. The Xperia Z (not the Z1) was upgraded all the way to Lollipop 5.1.1, although it had an older Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. Just like many flagships devices that were launched last year (apart from the One A9), the Sony Xperia Z5 is one of the many still operating on Lollipop.
It would be quite interesting to see what Sony has planned for their version of Marshmallow. We know that Sony has been working on a near-stock Android build for sometime and by using the Marshmallow's Doze feature in conjunction with their own proprietary battery saving software, the battery life in many devices can be enhanced.
Manually flashing firmware updates to your Samsung device is the fastest way to get updates, even if the firmware is official and 100% safe, there is still a chance for ERROR!
Any error can lead your Samsung device to boot loop. which means the device will keep restarting without booting into the operating system, this happens when you flash wrong firmware version or using a corrupt file. Good News, we have a solution for that.
You can easily get out of a boot loop by just following the steps provided on the video below. Don't forget to check out our YouFirmware section, we provide 100% official Samsung Lollipop / Marshmallow firmwares.
We here at YouMobile are always looking for bringing you the latest confirmed News and reports. Samsung has previously confirmed the official Lollipop update for the Galaxy S4 mini before, but this looks like is about to change... We reached our to our sources and samsung officials and we received a reply.
Sadly, the final decision of Samsung that the Galaxy S4 mini will NOT get the Official Android 5.0 Lollipop update, this is bad news for S4 mini users which were waiting for the update to hit the In-development status.
According to Samsung the Update was "Canceled" because the device didn't pass the Testing process as it has to be done before a major update released for any device. Here's the Email we got from Samsung regarding this matter (we can't disclose some information mentioned on the email due to legal issues/disclosure agreement).
"...the Galaxy S4 mini will not be getting the update to the latest Android version (lollipop). We decided that the update will not deliver the optimal user experience for our users, after comprehensive testing process..." - Samsung Mobile UK
Samsung's official regional branches and Three carrier also announced that the S4 mini update is canceled and won't be released. Here's some of the official posts by samsung denying the update release.
@AsimDemir_ Hi Asim, according to our latest information the S4 mini will not be receiving the Lollipop update. ^LS— Samsung Nederland (@Samsung_NL) May 11, 2015
@sanayp We can confirm the S4 mini will not be receiving Lollipop, Sanay— Samsung Mobile UK (@SamsungMobileUK) May 18, 2015
@LegendFlameMC I'm afraid the Galaxy S4 Mini will not be getting the Lollipop update.— Samsung UK (@SamsungUK) May 18, 2015
@debbiebabes Sorry to say, Debbie but we have it from Samsung that the S4 Mini won't be updated to Lollipop :-( Are you due an upgrade...— ThreeUKSupport (@ThreeUKSupport) May 8, 2015
@MooSilvano2014 Hi Moon. Apologies for previous tweet. S4 will have lollipop update not the S4 mini. Thanks, Steve— Three Ireland Online (@ThreeCare) May 18, 2015
We apologize for all S4 mini users for this confusion but Samsung cares more the user experience of its devices and the update will affect your experience with the device, However, Samsung may change its decision again after hearing your demands.
As a reminder, the Galaxy S5 mini variant is getting its official Android 5.0.1 Lollipop is the next couple of weeks.
Would you believe it? The unlocked version of the S7 Edge is finally getting its first taste of Nougat! Although it has been more than four months since all carrier versions of the two devices first started to receive Android N, the unlocked version was kept out of the loop for some unknown reason. Theoretically, the update should have actually arrived faster on the unlocked version like it does everywhere else, but that doesn't happen to Samsung phones in America quite clearly.
The good news is that it's finally out there, heading towards your unfortunate and outdated S7 Edge as you read this, in the form of a massive OTA update. The bad news is that it's late enough to be too early for an update to Android O! Considering these are 2016 flagships from Samsung that we are talking about, it would be safe to say that if you plan to buy the Galaxy S8 in the US and get updates too, you better pledge your allegiance to one of the networks. By the way, if you are wondering why the S7 isn't mentioned on this list, then that's because Samsung hasn't released the Nougat 7.0 update for the flat screen variant yet...

It was just days earlier that the Galaxy S8 and S8+ was up on Wi-Fi Alliance for certification purposes while running Android 8.0 Oreo and today we have another report that indicates an Android Oreo powered stable firmware update is just around the corner for the two devices. In fact, this latest report gives us hope that Samsung could start pushing the update much sooner, that is on or after January 15.
Keep in mind that this speculation was born out of a statement made by Samsung in one of its official notices where it stated the following, "Also please note, Beta Programe will end on Monday, January 15, 2018." While that isn't a confirmation that Samsung will start rolling out the OS upgrade on January 15, it would be surprising if the company doesn't start doing so by the end of the third week of January. Nevertheless, depending what your geographic location is and which career you are on, the update could be delayed further. We will find out soon enough.
