Samsung launches Samsung Z4 smartphone with Tizen OS

Samsung has announced the Samsung Z4 smartphone running the company’s own Tizen 3.0 operating system. It’s an entry-level device that sports a 4.5-inch display (800 x 480 pixels) with 2.5D curved glass on top and is powered by an unspecified quad-core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz.

More importantly, this is Samsung’s first major device since it recalled the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, and it looks like people are hungry for a successor. The Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are Read More...

The 3.5mm headphone jack has already disappeared from a number of high-end smartphones this year, and it appears that Samsung could be the next manufacturer to follow suit. According to SamMobile’s sources, the Galaxy S8 will not only feature a USB Type-C port for data, just like the Galaxy Note 7, but will also use it exclusively for audio too. If true, those hoping to use their existing 3.5mm headphones with the Galaxy S8 will likely have to faff around Read More...

On the second week of December, Trump will hold a meeting with key tech leaders at Trump Tower

Aside his on-going free market bromance with entrepreneur-turned-transition-adviser Peter Thiel, things between Donald Trump and the broader tech community have been fairly rocky for some time.
