The kitchen tablet market is growing with the already popular Sony Tablet Z Kitchen edition and Alcatel's OneTouch Xess. The newest to enter the market is the Samsung Galaxy View. At first, it was only rumors, but the 18.4 inch tablet is now listed at Adorama for pre-order.
The listing includes all the key specs, such as:
- 120ppi FullHD resolution display
- Exynos 7580 SoC processor aka Carmen2 (which clocked up to 1.6 GHz)
- 2 GB RAM
- 32 GB storage
- Upgradeable storage by microSD up to 128 GB
- 2.1 MP front-facing camera with video recording capability
Obviously, connectivity is key for quickly finding recipes and the Galaxy View has you covered. The listing shows support for Cat.6 LTE and quad-band 3G. WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac are all supported. There's also Bluetooth v4.1.
Just in case you need an extra large GPS, there's GPS with GLONASS and A-GPS included. Samsung states the 5,700mAh battery should allow for 8.5 hours of video viewing. No details on when the actual release date will be, but the pre-order price is set at $599.
As August 2 draws ever so close, we prepare ourselves for Samsung's most powerful smartphone this year, in the form of the Galaxy Note 7. Olixar had given away a lot when it first listed the covers for the Galaxy Note 7 just a while ago, but just recently, even more was revealed when they uploaded images while listing a tempered glass for the upcoming Note 7. The image clearly shows an USB Type-C port on the smartphone, as we had been reporting all along.
The images also show us the Galaxy Note 7's iris scanner, regular headphone jack, bottom firing speaker, ambient light sensor and the selfie cam. The S-Pen can be seen tucked away into its slot at the bottom right. The general consensus is that Samsung will unveil a brand new iteration of their Gear VR headset and that will use USB Type-C top connect to the Note 7. The new VR headset is also rumoured to be unveiled at the press conference on August 2, along with the next Note. Do you like the new USB Type-C port or would you have preferred the older micro-USB port instead?

Zauba, a website that tracks import and export of phones to India, has released some info related to SamSung's latest imports. As the new phones are imported in relatively lesser number for testing, it has become helpful in revealing the specifications of the devices. The model numbers of the two smartphones imported into India are actually Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930R4) and the S7 Edge (SM-G935R4).
The listing also shows that the Samsung Galaxy S7 will be featuring a 5.1-inch screen and the Galaxy Edge will come with a bit larger 5.5-inch screen. This is in sync with the specifications that were revealed in the AnTuTu benchmark test. It is expected that the screen will have QHD resolution. The Zauba listing identified first by NapiDroid confirms that the two devices of both the variants have been shipped to the country for testing with hidden IMEI number.
The Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge will cost around $351 and as these units are for testing, the prices actually don't point to anything concrete. These new smartphones where last spied in the AnTuTu benchmark tests and it is still not confirmed whether Samsung would power these devices with Snapdragon 820 or use the in-house Exynos.
It is quite possible that Samsung might use both of the SoCs in different variants, just like the way it was done in the Galaxy S5. Samsung will be unveiling the Galaxy S7 and the S7 Edge on February 21st at the time of Samsung Unpacked 2016 scheduled at MWC in Barcelona. Rumors say that Samsung is planning to ramp up the camera along with some of its inner parts but as far design goes we should expect bare minimum changes.

Courtesy of Steve Hemmerstoffer from NowhereElse, we now have an image that shows us certain details of the upcoming HTC Nexus Sailfish on an AnTuTu listing. As is often the case, the leaked listing was found on the Chinese social networking site Weibo.
We can see from the image here that the Sailfish will sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM, a Full HD display, 8mp/13mp - front/rear cameras and 32GB of internal storage. Nexus smartphones always get the latest OS to boot, so it's no real surprise to see that it's running on Android 7 Nougat Manufacturer Release version 1.
As one can see from the spec sheet here, it's quite identical to the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Edge and Galaxy Note 7 in terms of power, but then again, most flagships these days seem to be sporting the near-identical internals anyway. Some of them like the OnePlus 3 have even surpassed them by adding 6GB of RAM into the fray. However, we will wait to see if the HTC Nexus Marlin has something different to offer, although reports indicate that it won't really be that much different from the Sailfish, apart from a larger display.
In case, you are interested in benchmark scores, check out what TechDroider posted earlier. The Nexus Sailfish seems to have scored 2158 (single-core) and 5355 (multi-core) in the Geekbench benchmarking test. We will find out more in October as it's rumoured to be released on the 4th of that month.
