New Threat: Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Explodes In A Woman's Purse

New Threat: Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Explodes In A Woman's Purse

It may interest you to know that the Galaxy Note 9 smartphone has been found to have copied the nightmare Samsung Galaxy Note 7 had in 2016.
The explosive incident of Samsung’s recent Note model is still on the go! Sad as it may seem.

Samsung is being sued by a woman who reported an explosion of her Galaxy Note 9 smartphone

Recently, an American Galaxy Note 9 user reported that the phone exploded inside her purse. Reporting from New York Post, Diane Chung sued Samsung regarding the disgraceful explosion of her Samsung Galaxy Note right inside her purse. She filled a lawsuit against the company and she is currently waiting for the court’s judgement.

Diane Chung explained how the incident occurred, that she was using the smartphone while in an elevator and it suddenly became hot. For safety sake she stopped using the phone and dropped it inside her purse. Not quite long, she heard a noise and found smoke escaping out of her purse, only did she realise it was her Galaxy Note 9 that got exploded and in an attempt to bring it out, her fingers got burnt.

This is not funny at all! A $1234 (£899) Galaxy Note 9 has been found to be a threat to health. And according to her, the Galaxy Note 9 only stopped burning when it was carried with a cloth and dipped into water.

What Could Be The Cause Of This Galaxy Note 9 Explosion?
If one should investigate the cause of a smartphone that got burnt, the battery would be the first suspected part.
However, Kate Beaumont, product director, had a security check on Galaxy Note 9 batteries and concluded that the batteries did not catch fire. Meaning the battery may not be the reason for Diane Chung’s Galaxy Note 9 explosion.

Meanwhile, Samsung unleashed the following statement: “ We have not received any reports of similar incidents involving a Galaxy Note 9 device and we are investigating the matter.”

Samsung Galaxy S10 leaks: Everything you need to know —Triple-lens Rear Camera, 3D Face-ID, 5G Network

Samsung Galaxy S10 leaks: Everything you need to know —Triple-lens Rear Camera, 3D Face-ID, 5G Network

The Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S10 were initially the anticipating smartphones everyone thought would be unleashed this year, but unfortunately, the Galaxy Note 9 was recently launched and its pre-ordering is ongoing, leaving the Galaxy S10 hidden in the world of rumors (sometimes rumors become true anyway).

The Galaxy S10 is what's being given much predictions and leaks and that we’ll be sharing with you on this post. Keep reading!!!😎

The Galaxy S10 is expected to come with some unique features different from other previous devices.
Since the phone has missed this year CES and MWC, everyone is suggesting it could be the biggest hit in 2019 as it is believed it would be announced in early January at CES 2019 as part of the Galaxy series 10th year anniversary.

Here are some of the expected features of Galaxy S10:

  • Display and Design
There's definitely going to be a turn around in the display features of smartphones which will be launched next year and hopefully, Samsung may be the first Mobile company to introduce the change in its proposed Galaxy S10.

Reporting from an early tweet by the Popular and reliable leaker, Ice Universe, the Galaxy S10 screen resolution may exceed 600 Pixels Per-Square Inches (600 PPI) unlike the Galaxy S9 and S9+ which holds 570 ppi and 530 ppi respectively.

This could be a great turn up for Samsung upcoming devices. Reviewing Ice Universe’s tweet, you should know that the Galaxy S10 may come in two variants that is a Galaxy S10 and S10+ (following the pattern in past models) and according to the tweet, the smaller variant might accommodate a 600 PPI screen resolution while the larger model will exceed 600 PPI as early stated.

A unique Style Design is coming to the Galaxy S10 Models next year.
The transparent black plate design which is already existing with the HTC is what Samsung plans to introduce to the Galaxy S10, which will bring out the beauty of the Smartphone to enable it to stand a chance of winning the customers’ heart in the mobile market.

  • Here is something weird for you; A trio of models
Reporting from Business Insider, Ming-Chi Kuo, TF International Securities analyst claims that Samsung is preparing three phones with different display sizes of 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.4-inch. These handsets could be the three models of the Galaxy S10 as previously seen in June via ETNews.
Are you as curious as I? If the Galaxy S10 models should have a Galaxy S10 and S10+, then what could the third model be called?

If the smaller 5.8-inch Galaxy S10 is to feature a 600 PPI resolution display density then we should be expecting an increase in the resolution display to 4K quality.

These three Galaxy S10 models are likely to hold differentiated features. The bigger models are said to feature on-screen fingerprint sensors while the smaller model may keep to having a fingerprint sensor on the side.

  • An In-Screen Fingerprint and 3D Face-ID Style Camera sensors
The In-screen Fingerprint is what Samsung has been hoping to implement in its mobile devices but unluckily the company wasn't the first to get this feature straight into its brands. This is one feature that was rumored for the Galaxy Note 9 and S9, but Samsung has decided to preserve it for its Galaxy S10 models.

The use of “ultrasonic technology” is going to be implemented, which will produce a super accurate result far better than the optical technology being employed in other smartphones to scan and register fingerprints from beneath the screen.
D.J. Koh, President of Samsung Electronics, stated that “optical sensors give nothing else than a bad user experience.”

Rumor has it that Samsung’s Galaxy S10 models may opt-in for a Face-ID Stylus 3D Camera sensor. Samsung is partnering with 3D Camera firm Mantis Vision to help make this feature a reality in the Galaxy S10 models. If this 3D Face ID-beating security and biometric unlocking capabilities are true on the Galaxy S10, then iPhone X should get ready to compete with the device.

In addition to the above sensors, the Galaxy S10 is expected to also feature its Iris Scanning technology as alternative security sensor.

What next?

  • Triple Camera lenses to come true on the Galaxy S10
Samsung is working on a triple camera lens which it plans to polish on the upcoming Galaxy S10 models. These triple-lens set up will be mounted at the back of the phone with the added lens helping to capture quality photos in low-light condition.

What should you expect at the upper front of the Galaxy S10?
A dual selfie camera lens set up is what should sit on that spot all for the purpose of producing Portrait Mode effect on selfies, reporting from The Bell.

  • 5G Connectivity

Get ready to experience seamless internet speed in a bit. The future 5G Connectivity will become useful in 2019, smartphone Companies will start implementing this technology to their brands next year, and this is what the Galaxy S10 will support in addition to other network technologies (4G LTE, 3G, 2G).

Could Galaxy S10 be the first of Samsung Mobile to ditch the preloaded 5GB Connectivity?

D.J. Koh stated that “ the Galaxy S10 WILL not be the first Samsung Mobile Phone to support 5G Connectivity.”
This has to lead us to wonder if Samsung might unleash another of its brand before the end of this year, in other words, before the Galaxy S10 models will be launch. According to D.J Koh’s statement, hopefully, yes, and it will be the first to handle 5G Network Connectivity while the Galaxy S10 is expected to succeed it next year.

Could this propose phone stated to first feature 5G Connectivity technology be the yet unleashed Galaxy X foldable smartphone? A transformative phone/tablet which Samsung has been working on.

The Galaxy S10 is expected to come in three models and if all or more of the above-rumored specifications and features are what the handsets will later hold when they are unboxed, then we are pretty sure Samsung might win the customers’ heart in 2019.
However, all that’s been discussed above are the trending rumor specifications of the Galaxy S10 and remember that rumors are most times close to 100% accurate.

Galaxy Note 9 release date, Specs rumours; 8GB RAM and 512GB storage, Bluetooth enabled S Pen

Galaxy Note 9 release date, Specs rumours; 8GB RAM and 512GB storage, Bluetooth enabled S Pen

Samsung Galaxy Note 9
Be ready for the upcoming update of the Galaxy Note series of Samsung, the biggest South Korean tech company. Samsung has announced that it will be unveiling its new successor of the Galaxy Note series (that is the Note 9) in two months time after which the launch event of the brand will be held on August 9. Get more details about this anticipating Galaxy Note 9 below 👇

Samsung says the launching of its Galaxy Note 9 will be held on 9 August, at a Samsung Unpacked event in New York. Meanwhile, Samsung teaser video of the Galaxy Note 9 shows off the phone's modified S Pen, which looks set to be made available in gold.

However, we shall be discussing the rumoured specifications and features of the Galaxy Note 9. Hence, rumour has it that the phone is bigger than its predecessors in terms of specs and features.  

Fans of bigger screen resolutions will definitely love this Galaxy Note 9 as it is expected to feature a sizable 6.38in display. This is slightly bigger than the Note 8 having a 6.32in display. The screen could be curved on all sides with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio.

The phone is also expected to own the same resolution as on its predecessors, that is the 2,960 x 1,440 pixels, the reason being that no news has been heard regards its resolution. According to rumours, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to feature a 4k display.

However, the phone may also be the first of Samsung flagship to feature an on-screen fingerprint scanner. Just like the Galaxy S9 series, the Galaxy Note 9 is anticipated to probably be powered by the new Snapdragon 845 or Samsung's own Exynos 9810 chipset- depending on the region.

Also, under the hood of the Note 9 will likely be a whopping 6GB RAM just as the Note 8. This will be fun for users who would want to run tons of programs/applications on the phone.  But there is another suggestion that, according to Chinese leaker Ice Universe, the Note 9 will be kept up and running with a massive 8GB RAM and 512GB of Storage. These two alternating stories of the phone's Storage features simply conclude to us that Samsung is yet to make its final judgment. Or probably, this could be a sign that there might be two variant of Galaxy Note 9.

Like previous brands of the Note series, the Galaxy Note 9 will come out of the box with a dual-camera mounted on the back, with few advancements. Some of the features of the camera set up including but not limited to;  digital zoom and a bokeh effect. Unfortunately, there's nothing much to talk about the Camera that the flagship device will possess. There hasn't been any reliable leak info like camera megapixels, aperture size and others.

Speaking of the battery, according to the leaks by Ice Universe, Samsung Galaxy Note 9 probably will be powered by a 4,000mAh battery unlike its predecessor having pretending comfort with a 3,300mAh battery.

According to Galaxy Club, the FCC listing include a new wireless charger with model number EP-N6100 that possesses an input rating of 12 volts and 2.1 amperes. This implies that Samsung might also release a faster wireless charger alongside the Galaxy Note 9.
We expect the Note 9 to come out of the box with a headphone Jack and a free pair of AKG headphones. Like every other modern smartphone, the IP68 rating for protection against dust and water is not excluding from Note 9.

Here come the most pronounced changes to be adopted by the Note 9. Samsung is making a big modification to the S Pen we know. FCC listing confirms that it will have Bluetooth enabled. According to FCC, a device referred to as Stylus Pen has the model number EJ-PN960 that matches with the Samsung Galaxy Note 9's SM-N960 model number. The similarity is the "N960".The S-Pen will connect to the phone with 2.4GHz Bluetooth LE. This will allow the S-Pen to take pictures and control music wirelessly, it will also be capable of acting as a pointer during presentations, as well as creating digital signatures for authentication. With the 2.4GHz Bluetooth LE support, rumours suggest that the S-Pen will for the first time have a battery.

The Operating System is one area of concentration we do not exclude when we discuss smartphone specs and features.
The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to have been built on Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung's Experience skin on top. On addiction is the probability that the Smartphone might also be launch alongside the much anticipated Bixby 2.0, the latest version of Samsung's digital assistant.

The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be released in varieties of colours so buyers can make their choice.
According to Galaxy Club, the Note 9 will be available in grey, blue, violet or purple, black
and brown. Also, the S Pen is said to match the colour of the phone.

We've come to the end of this discussion. Meanwhile, keep visiting Oshetech for more news on the Galaxy Note 9 and other tech discussions. Thanks for reading.

Samsung Says It Will Unveil Samsung Galaxy S9 Next Month At MWC, Barcelona

Samsung has announced what we've been waiting to hear, that the anticipating Samsung Galaxy S9 will be unveiled in Barcelona, Spain.

Initially, according to early rumours of Samsung Galaxy S9, everyone expected the flagship smartphone to be reviewed at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. The Central Electronic Show (CES) 2018 occurred some few days ago and the anticipating Samsung Galaxy S9 was not announced during the show.

However, Samsung is going back to their usual home for launching, it has announced that the Galaxy S9 would hold its launch at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. The show is scheduled to kick off in late next month.

According to a ZDNet report, Samsung's mobile chief, DJ Koh, made an announcement at a press conference during the Central Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas. He stated that the Galaxy S9 will be revealed during the trade show in Barcelona, Spain, that is the MWC show to hold from February 26 to March 1. The MWC has been the home of Samsung Galaxy S series except for the current Galaxy S8 that was launched at its own Galaxy Unpacked event held in March last year.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and other predecessors got went on sale in April, so according to this makeup history, the Galaxy S9 and probably S9+ might go on sale either in late March or early April, though the exact release date is yet to be known.

Koh also announced that the anticipating Galaxy X foldable Smartphone may be postponed to 2019. He went further to say that the user interface was obviously the main obstacle in commercialization and that Samsung is aggressively looking to fix the issue.

Now that Samsung has announced what we've been suspecting for weeks, let's wait for the launching of the anticipating Galaxy S9 hopefully to be unveiled during this year's MWC scheduled to kick off from February 26 to March 1. Meanwhile, before the launch, let's view its rumoured specifications.
