Samsung quietly unveils rugged Galaxy XCover Pro with removable 4,050mAh battery (Update: US pricing)

Something similar happened when it revealed a brand-new adventure-ready phone on the hush-hush in Finland alongside four new Galaxy A and Lite models. The Galaxy XCover Pro appears to come packed with a bunch of rugged features making it sturdy yet usable in rough environments.

First photos of the Galaxy S20+ leak, confirming design, name, and camera layout

The first real-world images of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy-series have landed, thanks to the folks at XDA Developers and noted Samsung leaker Max Weinbach. In addition to confirming a more sane camera layout (in a slightly different configuration compared to previous leaks), these photos also confirm that Samsung plans on skipping a whole lot of numbers with its next flagships, jumping straight to the "Galaxy S20" name.

Google Pay vs. Samsung Pay: Which mobile payment provider should you use?

In years past, forgetting your wallet meant you had no hope of exchanging money for goods and services—a true crime against capitalism. Today, you've got options as long as you've got a phone in your pocket. The ever-expanding availability of NFC has made it easier than ever before to pay with mobile devices, but Samsung Pay aims to support almost all payment terminals. Neither experience is perfect, though. So, which one should you use?

Samsung T7 Touch portable SSD gets faster and more secure with fingerprint scanner

Samsung’s T series of external SSDs have made a name for themselves owing to the compact, pocketable design and the USB-C interface. The last-gen T5 wasn’t the fastest SSD around with transfer speeds topping at 540MB/s, but its rather uncompromising overall package garnered general approval. Its follow-up—the T7 Touch—debuted at this year’s CES sporting a fancy fingerprint reader for hardware-based security and, of course, faster transfer rates.

Samsung confirms existence of Galaxy Home Mini, solicits beta testers in Korea (Update: Release in early 2020)

Samsung's Bixby-powered 'Galaxy Home' smart speaker has become a running gag in the tech world, as Samsung has barely mentioned it since it was announced in 2018 (alongside the Galaxy Note9). While the original speaker is still slated for a Q3 2019 release, a smaller version passed through the FCC a few months ago, and now it's going out to beta testers in Samsung's home country of South Korea.

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is the Pixelbook 2 we never got

The Galaxy Chromebook is probably the most interesting Chromebook to launch since the original Google Pixelbook. And, in many ways, that's because it represents something of a spiritual successor to Google's beloved premium ultraportable.

Speaking to Kan Liu, senior director of product management on Chrome OS, that's because it really is. The Galaxy Chromebook takes the things that made Google's Pixelbook great—amazing portability, a top-notch display, and a premium processor—and kicks all of them up a notch. The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is thinner, lighter, (much) faster, and has a screen that's considerably nicer to look at than the Pixelbook's. But it packs the same ultra-thin, fully convertible form factor that made the Pixelbook such a popular choice among Chrome OS enthusiasts.

Samsung's Galaxy Note10 Lite and S10 Lite budget flagships are official

They've been rumored for months, and the usual leaks have left little to the imagination, but now the Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite and S10 Lite are both official. As expected, they're slightly watered-down versions of the South Korean company's flagship phones — one of which features the iconic S Pen — that will retail for less than their fully-fledged siblings.
