Samsung Galaxy Tab S8

On February 9th, Samsung has removed the curtain after all the leaks and rumors by launching the Galaxy Tab S8 series tablets. The standard variant of this lineup is quite similar to Galaxy Tab S8 Plus and we named it Galaxy Tab S8 Lite.

While the Galaxy Tab S8 and Tab S8 Plus both sport a dual-camera setup at the rear with a 13MP primary camera and 6MP ultrawide. There’s also a 12MP front-facing camera used primarily as a webcam. It supports facial recognition as well, but fingerprint sensors certainly are more secure on either device.

The Galaxy Tab S8, in particular, places its fingerprint sensor on the power button, leaving room only for such a sensor under the Tab S8+ display. The 120Hz screen refresh rate tech is shared across both the models, and so are the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 128/256 GB storage with further room for expansion.

Thanks to Auto Switch, your Galaxy Buds will automatically pair from your Galaxy Tab S8 to your Galaxy S22, so users can move between devices without missing a beat. And for the first time, Samsung Health is available on Galaxy tablets so you can browse fitness videos for workout content and keep track of your health and fitness data from your Galaxy Watch on a larger screen.

You can also turn Galaxy Tab S8 into a portable second monitor with touchscreen capabilities for Galaxy PCs for side-by-side multitasking. And enhancements to Samsung Dex – a convenient desktop experience that takes the Galaxy Tab S8 from tablet mode to desktop mode – now allows transparent app windows and DeX mirroring for when you want to share your tablet’s screen on an external display.

In today’s always-connected world, security is more important than ever, which is why all three Galaxy Tab S8 models are equipped with new features that give the ability to track when your tablet’s camera and microphone are in use and allow you to instantly block all app access to prevent unwanted recording.

The Galaxy Tab S8 Series is also protected by Samsung’s industry-leading Knox Vault platform, which encrypts personal data and keeps stored files and information isolated from the device’s main operating system to safeguard it from attacks. All members of the lineup sport an intuitive fingerprint scanner that enables single-touch device unlocking.

Samsung is also proud to help reduce ocean-bound plastic and protect the planet, with the Galaxy Tab S8 partially constructed with plastic components repurposed from discarded fishing nets. Samsung is helping lead the industry by employing this practice.

The Galaxy Tab S8 devices also come in Samsung’s slimmest packaging to date, made from sustainably-sourced paper, which enables the company to lower emissions and produce less waste.

Availability

The Galaxy Tab S8 Series will be available for pre-order at 10am EST on February 9th and will officially launch in February in select markets including US, Europe and Korea.

Users who pre-order the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will get the new Book Cover Keyboard and those who pre-order the Tab S8 + or Tab S8 will get the Book Cover Keyboard Slim. Samsung Care +, a specialized product support service that covers accidental damage, repair and more, is available for the Galaxy Tab S8 in select markets.

New iOS 18 features that Android phones have for years!

Published

on

Apple iOS 18 will be the biggest upgrade for iPhone users in years. As always, Apple managed to take all the credit for changes it made in the iOS 18, but many of the new features have been available in Android phones for years.

iOS 18 is going to be a big upgrade for Apple iPhone users. However, the features are not so innovative as Android users have had most of them for years. Let’s have a look at the most notable ones!

Homescreen personalization

iOS 18 will enable homescreen customization on iPhone, which was not possible till v17. While Android vendors continued to make homescreen and lockscreen heavily personalizable, Apple realized it too late.

Static app grid is gone, and app icon movement is no longer limited. The iOS 18 also introduces custom color palettes that turn app icons into different shades – a similar approach to Android’s Material You.

Apple Intelligence

Feature-packed Gallery

Android’s Google Photos and Galaxy’s Samsung Gallery are equipped with advanced editing features. Taking inspiration, Apple also made some fruitful changes to its Photos app to uplevel user experience.

iOS 18 improves the search system of Photos app, allowing users to search for details in photos, including numbers, places, and other identifiers. Magic/Object Eraser is also added in the Photos app to remove unwanted objects.

On-device AI

Google introduced Pixel 8 Pro as the first on-device AI-powered smartphone. Later, Samsung launched the Galaxy S24, S24 Plus and S24 Ultra – all are equipped with Gemini Nano AI innovation.

Apple unveiled Apple Intelligence, which is arriving on iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max with iOS 18. The company partnered with OpenAI to fuel ChatGPT in products ranging in iPhone, as well as iPad and Mac lineups.

Apple iOS 18

RCS

Google has been criticizing Apple over the lack of RCS messaging in the iMessage app. The iPhone maker was forced by the European Union to adopt RCS messaging innovation, which is debuting with the iOS 18 upgrade.

The integration of RCS tech will allow users to see delivery and read receipts, theoretically typing indicators, and much richer images. Notably, RCS has been available in Android’s Google Messages for several years.

Emoji generator

iOS 18 has a powerful emoji generator functionality, which is better than Android’s emoji kitchen. It lets users generate bespoke emojis with AI in the style of Apple’s existing library of emojis.

Android has an Emoji Kitchen feature, which allows you to create unique stickers. However, the power of artificial intelligence gives an edge to Apple’s version of emoji creator functionality.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 price starts at $1899 in the US, a $100 increase

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 US variant’s price, memory configuration, and colors leaked. The company’s next foldable smartphone will be available in three storage variants (up to 1TB) and three standard color options.

According to Onleaks (via Smartprix), the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 price could start at $1899 in the US. The phone’s 512GB and 1TB variants may cost $2019 and $2259, respectively.

The source also revealed that the Z Fold 6 will be available in Navy, Silver Shadow, and Pink. However, Evleaks yesterday revealed additional information on colorways alongside the upcoming exclusive hues.

Compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 5, all three variants of the Z Fold 6 could be $100 expensive. Foldable phones are already expensive, and another $100 increment will make it harder to prove worthy in challenging markets.

Integration of Galaxy AI and rising prices of Snapdragon chips are the likely reasons. However, the Korean tech giant may introduce introductory offers and trade-in benefits to make a significant reduction in price initially.

Samsung may launch its new foldables on July 10. The Unpacked event could take place in Paris, France. Aside from phones, the Galaxy Watch 7, Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds 3 Pro, and Galaxy Ring will also be launched at the event.
