The Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Watch officially launch today

The Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy Watch officially launch today

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 9 earlier this month and promptly began taking pre-orders. Some of those phones already shipped, but today is the official street date for the Note 9. You can stroll into your local carrier store or purveyor of electronic ephemera and walk out with a Galaxy Note 9. Well, it'll be hard to walk out and carry the phone after giving up and arm and leg to get it. You can, however, adorn your one remaining wrist with the Galaxy Watch, which is also launching today.

LineageOS drops support for 30 devices, including the Redmi Note 3 and Moto G4

The LineageOS custom ROM used to support just about every phone imaginable, but lately the project has been going for quality over quantity. Oreo (15.1) builds have to fulfill stricter requirements to receive official status, and now Lineage is dropping support for 30 unmaintained phones and tablets.

Latest Galaxy Note9 leak reveals almost everything about the phone

We're only two days away from the Galaxy Note9's NYC event, which means that there's a lot of information on it out already. WinFuture was able to obtain photos of the Note9 in four colors, as well as other images, specifications, pricing, pre-order goodies, and more. Basically the only figure we haven't heard yet is US pricing.

LineageOS ends official Nougat builds as Pie support approaches

LineageOS ends official Nougat builds as Pie support approaches

LineageOS is one of the most popular custom ROMs available, with somewhere around two million active installations. It typically takes a while for the project to update to newer versions of Android, since development is largely done by maintainers in their spare time. Six months after the public release of Android 9 Pie, it looks like LineageOS is about ready to make the jump — but not before dropping older devices.

[Update: G8s too] LG announces the G8 and V50 at Mobile World Congress

We've seen leaks and renders of the LG G8 for months now, and the company itself has released a few previews over the past few weeks. Some information has also become public about the next V-series phone, with alleged 5G support. At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, LG revealed both of these flagships — the G8 ThinQ and V50 ThinQ.

SamFAIL roots Snapdragon Galaxy Note8 without tripping Knox

SamFAIL roots Snapdragon Galaxy Note8 without tripping Knox

The age-old tradition of rooting Samsung's latest flagship continues. In this case, it's the Galaxy Note8, and it took developers about a month. For some perspective, that's much less time than we had to wait for root on the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Based on this progression, I predict that the next Samsung flagship should be rooted just a bit before it is released. /s

[Deal Alert] Costco offers up to $500 in lump sum Samsung trade-in credit toward T-Mobile Note9

[Deal Alert] Costco offers up to $500 in lump sum Samsung trade-in credit toward T-Mobile Note9

Many of the recent Pixel 3 leaks haven't exactly been celebrated — our own recent poll results show 60 percent of participating readers don't like the look of it — leaving the well-reviewed Samsung Galaxy Note9 in a strong position. Carrier deals only enhance the allure —for instance, T-Mobile's offer of up to $500 in trade-in credits (split over 24 months) on Note9 activations. Even better, though, is Costco's new offer in partnership with the carrier, which gifts the full $500 in one lump sum.

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Is Also Getting Its Lollipop Update Today

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Is Also Getting Its Lollipop Update Today

What's this? A current-generation AT&T phone and its year-old sibling getting updated on the same day? We have an embarrassment of riches, folks. Just a few hours after the Lollipop over-the-air update for the Galaxy Note 4 started on Ma Bell, the Galaxy Note 3 (from 2013) is getting the same treatment. AT&T's support page says that this is Android 5.0, build number N900AUCUEOC1.

As AT&T does with all their updates, the OTA will only start on Wi-Fi (and not that mobile connection that you're paying them to provide). The OTA file is a massive 1.2 gigabytes, and whatever server AT&T uses for these things probably has some tiny Flintstones dinosaur manually pushing data packets down a CAT-5 cable.

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 Gets Android Lollipop OTA Update

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 3 Gets Android Lollipop OTA Update

When T-Mobile added a new update tracking progress meter to its website last week, the Galaxy Note 3 was listed as undergoing T-Mobile testing, the second step in a three-step process to deliver Android 5.0. Soon it should be moving up a notch, as a changelog has hit Samsung's site saying that today's the day the carrier starts pushing out the over-the-air update to consumers.

GalaxyNote3

In addition to Lollipop, the changelog makes references to Wi-Fi calling, including a fix for a one way audio issue. But that's not the point here. When people click the update button looking for software version N900TUVUFOB5, they're looking for the latest version of Android.
