    [$$] Samsung Downsizes China Operations With Factory Closure

    SEOUL—Samsung Electronics Co. plans to close a Chinese smartphone factory this month, as the South Korean technology giant shifts manufacturing to India and its sales flounder in China, the world’s largest handset market. Samsung will close its manufacturing facility in Tianjin, a northern port city near Beijing, by Dec. 31, a company spokesman said on Thursday. The retrenchment appears to be unrelated to efforts by the U.S. to convince its allies, including South Korea, to restrict their dealings with China in the technology sector amid a geopolitical feud involving Chinese telecom giant Huawei Technologies Co., a major competitor of Samsung’s.

    Samsung's best 4K QLED TV is on sale for $1,800 off at Walmart

    The 65-inch Samsung Q9F QLED 4K Smart TV is $1,999.99 at Walmart right now, which is a great deal. It's worth noting that Walmart likes to be tricky and has the starting price listed at $7,499, while the actual starting price for this TV on Samsung's website is $3,799.99. That's still $1,800 off and better than most of the TV deals from Black Friday. Keep reading to find out why.  SEE ALSO: Best 4K TV deals this week: Save on LG, Sony, Samsung, VIZIO, and more Samsung TVs typically offer the best color display on the market, and the Q9 is no exception. But where it outperforms all other Samsung TVs is the HDR. The focus on colors can sometimes overshadow the blacks and whites with some lower model Samsung TVs. The Q9 avoids that entirely and offers HDR that rivals some of the best OLED TVs from LG and Sony thanks to HDR10+. And the 240 blur reduction will ensure the smooth picture, whether you're watching football or cartoons. Image: SamsungIt's also deceptively easy to set up. The biggest reason for this is the One Connect Box. Instead of building the inputs into the TV and making it bulkier in the back, the One Connect Box provides all the video and audio inputs in a separate box. The box itself connects to the TV via the One Invisible Connection cable with no loss of video or audio quality. This means the Q9 could be mounted more flush to the wall and you won't have to worry about possibly blocking the inputs. Saving $1,800 on Samsung's best 4K TV speaks for itself, so act quick if you want the best of the best in your home theater.

    Samsung Galaxy S10+ to come with up to 1TB of storage, report claims

    Samsung's Galaxy S10 is still likely months away, but rumors about the phone just keep on coming.  The latest among them comes courtesy of Gizmodo UK, which says a source at a "major tech retailer" gave them the exact launch date, release date, storage and screen sizes and even prices in the UK for all variants of the phone.  SEE ALSO: Samsung's new A8s smartphone doesn't have a headphone jack According to the report, the Galaxy S10 will be announced on February 20, a week before the start of Mobile World Congress 2019. That's also when the pre-orders will start, with the release date being March 8.  The phone will come in three screen basic variants, with three screen sizes: The S10 Lite will have a 5.8-inch screen, the S10 will have a 6.1-inch screen, and the S10+ will have a 6.4-inch screen. Note that leaker Evan Blass published the exact same screen sizes and variants a few days ago. Also note that these names aren't set in stone yet; Samsung internally calls the device "Beyond." A case manufacturer's expectations for the Galaxy S10 lineup: pic.twitter.com/lrExjvalcb — Evan Blass (@evleaks) December 8, 2018 The most important bits from the new report are UK prices and storage sizes. The Galaxy S10 Lite will come with 128GB storage, with the price of £669. The S10 variant with 128GB of storage will cost £799, while the version with 512GB of storage will cost £999. Finally, the biggest and most powerful device in this bunch, the S10+, will start at £899 for the 128GB version, £1099 for the 512GB version, and an astonishing £1,399 for the version with 1TB of storage. These prices would look horrendous if converted into U.S. dollars, but prices in the UK for Samsung phones are typically higher than the prices in the U.S.  Gizmodo's report has a few more details about the phone(s). The S10 won't support 5G at launch, but support for the technology might arrive by mid-2019. It also confirmed earlier reports that all of the phones will have Samsung's new Infinity-O, punch-hole display, as well as an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner.  WATCH: Samsung finally showed us its first foldable phone — Future Blink

Turns out, the tie-up actually involved Supreme Italia -- a company the New York original has clashed with in court over copyright and accused of being a fake. Now, Samsung says it’s reassessing the alliance.

    Samsung reconsiders its fake Supreme collaboration in China

    Samsung caused controversy at the Chinese launch event of the Galaxy A8 earlier this week, when it announced it would be partnering with fashion brand Supreme for some kind of tech x streetwear collaboration (exactly what wasn't specified). The catch though, was that the partnership didn't involve the authentic New York Supreme label, but rather Supreme Italia -- a "legal fake" in Italy that manages to exist thanks to a bunch of intellectual property law loopholes. In a nutshell, Supreme NYC doesn't have the authorization to sell and market in China -- home to Samsung's biggest consumer base.

    Samsung Electronics will cease operations at one of its mobile phone manufacturing plants in China, the company said, as its sales in the world's biggest smartphone market slumps amid rising competition from lower-cost local rivals. The South Korean company has seen its share of the Chinese market shrink to 1 percent in the first quarter of this year, losing out to home-grown brands like Huawei [HWT.UL], according to market research firm Counterpoint, which pegs Samsung's share of the pie at about 15 percent at mid-2013. "As part of ongoing efforts to enhance efficiency in our production facilities, Samsung Electronics has arrived at the difficult decision to cease operations of Tianjin Samsung Electronics Telecommunication," Samsung said in a statement, referring to the plant in northern Chinese city of Tianjin.

  • Samsung's new A8s smartphone doesn't have a headphone jack

    Samsung's new A8s smartphone doesn't have a headphone jack

    Remember when Samsung made fun of Apple for not including a headphone jack on its flagship phones? Those jokes will pack a little less punch now that Samsung has launched the Galaxy A8s, a phone with the new Infinity-O display, triple rear camera and zero headphone jacks.  The fact that the phone doesn't have a 3.5mm audio connector, noticed by MacRumors, is clearly visible in the promotional photos for the device, where it's shown from all angles. The only connector this phone has is the USB-C jack on the bottom.  SEE ALSO: Essential's $149 magnetic dongle will bring back your headphone jack Granted, the Galaxy A8s is a mid-ranger, and Samsung has quite a big lineup of devices in this price range. The lack of headphone jack on this device does not necessarily mean the company will do the same with all of its upcoming phones.   Still, the fact that a prominent Samsung phone comes without a 3.5mm audio connector is notable for the sheer fact that the company openly mocked Apple's decision to remove the headphone jack from the iPhone for years. Samsung even has an ad that makes fun of dongles.  Unfortunately, the A8s probably is the harbinger of things to come. A report in October claimed that Samsung will drop the headphone jack from its flagship sometime next year (likely after it launches the S10 in February). And, generally, smartphone makers have succumbed to the trend. Huawei's latest flagship, the Mate 20 Pro, doesn't have a headphone jack, and rivals like Xiaomi and OnePlus have followed suit.  Why are we even talking about this connect, you might ask? Well, because it's still useful, simple, practical and because most people still have at least one pair of wired headphones at home. Wireless may be the future, but this is one of those instances we'd prefer if it weren't showed down our throats.  WATCH: Finally, wireless headphones you won't be embarrassed to wear

    First it was the notch, now the hole-punch has emerged as the latest tech for concealing selfie cameras whilst keeping our smartphones as free of bezel as possible to maximize the screen space. This week, Samsung and Huawei both unveiled new phones that dispense with the iconic 'notch' -- pioneered by Apple but popularized by everyone -- in favor of positioning in the camera in a small "Infinity-O" hole located on the top left side of the screen. Dubbed hole-punch, the approach is part of Samsung’s new Galaxy A8s and Huawei's View 20, which were unveiled hours apart on Tuesday.
