Get Google Assistant on your Samsung Galaxy smartwatch with GAssist

It can easily be argued that Samsung's Tizen smartwatches are better than Wear OS competitors in a number of ways, but the voice assistant is not one of them. Bixby will never be able to compete with Google Assistant in this space, so it's always been a bit of a blow for Samsung watch owners. Until now, that is, as a new app is bringing the Assistant to the Galaxy Watch and others Tizen running 4.0 and above.

[Update: Official renders leak] The Galaxy Tab S6 will be Samsung's next iPad fighter, first photos reveal

Samsung is one of the only Android manufacturers left that make serious Android tablets with serious Android software — iPads basically own the higher-end market. While it's not certain if the latest iteration of the Galaxy Tab is going to make a dent in Apple's share, the upcoming Galaxy Tab S6 could at least shape up to be a great alternative for Android fans not willing to touch an iPad, according to a SamMobile leak.

If you happen to be in the somewhat curious position where bundling all your TV, internet, and phone services with one company aligns with your best interests, you may have considered joining Xfinity Mobile at some point to complement your other Comcast services. But up until now, if you wanted to bring an Android phone over to use, there was no way to do so except to trade in and buy one from the carrier. Today, the MVNO has finally expanded its BYOD program to include several major Galaxy phones though there are three massively disappointing omissions to the list.

Get an unlocked Galaxy S10, S10+, or S10e for $200 off ($550+) from multiple retailers

There have been countless sales on Samsung's Galaxy S10 series over the past few months, but those discounts usually came with minor catches. The dual-SIM and international models have been easy to find on sale, but those versions don't support Samsung Pay in the U.S., and they're missing a few 4G/LTE bands commonly used by U.S. carriers. More recently, there were some US models on sale, but now there are even bigger discounts.

Samsung SmartThings gaining support for EU plugs in preparation for German launch

Samsung SmartThings is a versatile smart home platform with one crucial caveat: It only supports US and UK plugs at the moment, locking out many interested parties in countries with different wiring. This is about to change. In preparation for IFA in Berlin, Samsung announced on Wednesday that it's bringing SmartThings devices to Germany this September. With the country using EU wall plugs, this should allow people based in other countries with these sockets to import them, too, and use them without adaptors.

Samsung app teardown reveals upcoming AKG-branded wireless earbuds

Samsung is harnessing its acquisition of audio company Harman to full effect with a number of AKG integrations into its own-brand product launches. In fact, you might recall that when Samsung came out with its latest wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds, AKG had a hand in tuning the sound. Now, thanks to an asset trawl into one of Samsung's apps, we have suspicions that AKG will go all-in with a pair of wireless earbuds to its name alongside a couple of other headphones in the near future.

Samsung sued for misleading water-resistance ads in Australia

Samsung began calling its flagship Galaxy phones "water-proof" or "water-resistant" with the Galaxy S7 series, which received an IP68 rating, meaning it should be okay to submerge it into up to five feet deep water for a maximum of 30 minutes. That hasn't stopped the company from aggressively marketing its phones as great devices to use at the pool or on the beach ever since, without actually covering any water damage under warranty. The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) disapproves of these "misleading advertisements" and is taking the Korean company to court over them.
