There was plenty of talk about new tablets at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and Samsung contributed to the discussion. It is also a nice afterthought that the Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 will come with glove-touch support to boot, knowing how some of us might actually use it in extreme temperatures. Heck, we even a new Nokia 3310 to play around with.
Galaxy S8, the upcoming flagship by Samsung after the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco is one of the most anticipated smartphones of 2017. It is also expected that the United States models will come powered by the latest Qualcomm SoC, the Snapdragon 835, while worldwide models will come powered by an Exynos equivalent, and both the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will make use of the company's own AI solution, Bixby.
The LG G6 offers Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and minimal interface skinning, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 has a skin that is thicker. You obviously see what's happening here, with Lenovo giving you a beefier option in specs and in screen size.
If you're looking at all these numbers and wondering what the hell they mean and whether or not any of it matters.the answer is yes and no. Upon its launch, Samsung will be one of the first smartphones to come with the Snapdragon 835.
It's the same story with the Lenovo Tab 4 10 and 10 Plus. The only difference between the two is expected to be display and battery. It might also be engineered with an Exynos series 9 chipset that will be paired by a enormous 6 GB of RAM. And at MWC 2017, we saw most major chipmakers take part - Qualcomm, Exynos, and Huawei - plus a new player in Xiaomi.
Of course, we're only getting a small piece of the pie here.
Samsung wants to sell as many Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices before it officially announces the Galaxy S8, which will happen on March 29 in New York City. If the prices stay in the range Samsung did with the Galaxy 7 line, it could have an edge over the iPhone 8 in terms of price. Along with the processor, Adreno 540 will function as the graphics processor and will work in unison with 4GB of RAM. Samsung Knox 2.7., inbuilt on the XCover 4, also provides defence-grade security from the moment the smartphone is turned on, due to its multi-layered platform.
