Samsung Announces The Crazy-Thin Galaxy A8, Only Available In China For Now

The Samsung Galaxy A8 has been rumored for a while, but only now has the company made it official. This mid-range phone has a distinctly Galaxy S6 sort of look, but it's even thinner. Too bad it's only going on sale in China.

Dashlane Password Manager Gets Support For Samsung Fingerprint Readers

Starting with the Galaxy S5, Samsung has been building fingerprint readers into the home buttons of its flagship devices. Their primary purpose is to give owners an alternative way of unlocking their phones. But some apps, such as LastPass, also take advantage of the hardware. Now another password manager has added support.

Dashlane's biometic authentication lets you swipe your fingerprint to automatically log in to sites or autofill information. It works on the Galaxy S5, S6, Note 4, and Note Edge.

Rumor: Samsung May Be Fast Forwarding The Galaxy Note 5 Launch To Mid-August, Pre-IFA

 

It is customary for Samsung to launch its Note flagships each year during IFA in Berlin, sometime around the beginning of September. This year though might be different, as rumors are starting to circulate that the Note 5 could launch a little earlier than that — toward mid-August.

According to our good friend, "a person familiar with the matter," who has spoken to both Reuters and The Wall Street Journal, Samsung is planning on changing its strategy to short-circuit Apple's yearly iPhone launch.

[Deal Alert] Unlocked 32GB Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Only $670 On eBay (Over $100 Off)

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge isn't different from the regular S6 on the inside, but the outside is another story. The phone tapers down on both sides to form something that's arguably prettier and harder to hold. Either way, it comes at a higher cost. T-Mobile sells the phone for $780. AT&T wants $815.

Fortunately, you can currently snag one on eBay for $670. That undercuts T-Mobile's price by $110.

It's summer time, which means that we're getting closer to the unveiling of Samsung's latest and greatest Note device(s) and thus the company is starting to think about lowering its current inventory to make space for the new models. That translates into major savings for customers who want a high-end smartphone that still holds its own against 2015's crop of flagships, or as Samsung likes to call this offer, Notable Savings.

International Galaxy S2 Says Goodbye To CyanogenMod 11, Skips 12.0 Entirely For Fresh Nightly Build Of 12.1 Instead

At this point, custom ROMs are the only things keeping old Galaxy S2s feeling fresh and vaguely modern. If you turned to CyanogenMod as your experience of choice, you've been left stranded on version 11 running Android KitKat. Now you're in for a treat. Fresh builds of CyanogenMod 12.1 are ready for download.

These nightly builds bring Android 5.1 to the four-year-old device. That's nothing to take lightly. These nightlies may not provide the most stable experience, but at this point, that old version of TouchWiz probably isn't either.
