After the embarrassing battery overheating-and-exploding fiasco, Samsung had to recall all the Galaxy Note 7 units it had sold. Now, a refurbished version of the device is put back on sale in South Korea.

Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 goes back on sale as Fan Edition

Termed the Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition, unused components and unopened, recalled units are used to build the new model. The battery capacity is reduced to 3,200 mAh (from 3,500 mAh). It has also been put through the eight-point test to ensure safety.

If you liked what Samsung had to offer via Bixby, their in-house smart assistant, you might turn out to be a 'fan' of the Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition.

The rest of the specifications are kept as they were - a 5.7-inch Quad HD display (2560x1440 pixels), 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal memory, and 12 MP primary camera along with 5 MP secondary lens setup. Iris scanning and S Pen are also retained.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Fan Edition is priced at 699,600 ($610 approx.), which is around 30% less than the original model's launch price.  Only 400,000 units will be produced. The smartphone comes in black, blue, gold, and silver color options.

The device goes on sale in South Korea on July 7. The company has decided not to launch it in the United States and India, while a call for other markets will be taken at a later date. This could be because the iterative upgrade to the Note lineup, the Galaxy Note 8, is expected to launch by the end of September this year.

The next in line for Samsung's most premium Note phones is the much awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 8 which is set to release towards the end of September.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

According to the latest reports from VentureBeat, the Note 8 might be their priciest phone yet at around €1,000 ($1,119/₹72,000 approx.).

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is said to come with a 6.3-inch AMOLED edge-to-edge infinity display, slightly bigger than its Galaxy S8 Plus counterpart making the split-screen operation much easier to use. It will also feature the same aspect ratio of 18.5:9.

The Note 8 will be the South Korean tech firm's first smartphone with a dual camera at the back. It is said to feature two 12-megapixel sensors with independent Optical Image Stabilization for each lens!

It will continue to utilize the same Exynos 8895 or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipsets - depending on the market, the same ones as the S8 and S8+. Although, this time, the Note 8 will come with a hefty 6 GB of RAM, making it only the second phone from Samsung to feature this much amount of RAM after the Galaxy C9 Pro.

It will sport a small 3,300 mAh battery as opposed to last year's 3,500 mAh battery, most likely to avoid any repeat of the Note 7 battery exploding fiasco. Since then, Samsung has slowly been recovering its reputation and reassuring their users that their phones are safe by implementing an eight-point battery test!

As always, the Note 8 will come with an all-improved S-pen stylus which is said to come packed with more features than its siblings. It can also pin handwritten notes onto the Always-on display.

Also, the Samsung DeX support is said to be included as well which brings desktop-like appearance to the phone! The Note 8 is said to come in shades of blue, black, and gold.

Google Pixel XL vs. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Battery capacity


Google Pixel XL has a 3,450 mAh battery, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge boasts a 3,600 mAh battery. Thus, the S7 Edge has around 4% larger battery capacity.

Color options


Black and silver are the standard color options across both the devices. Apart from that, Pixel XL offers a new blue variant, while the S7 Edge also comes in gold.

Curved display


Pixel XL does not come with a curved display, but the S7 Edge boasts a curved screen at the front edges of the device, thus giving it a unique look.

Dimensions


Google Pixel XL is 154.7 mm in height, 75.7 mm in width and 7.3 mm in depth. Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is 150.9 mm in height, 72.6 mm in width and 7.7 mm in depth. Thus, Pixel XL is around 3% taller and 4% wider in comparison.

External storage


Pixel XL does not have the option to expand its storage capacity by any means. S7 Edge, on the other hand, can widen the memory up to 256 gigs via a micro SD card.

Home button


Pixel XL comes with an on-screen Home button, while the S7 Edge has a physical off-screen button located below the display.

Internal storage options

Google Pixel XL does not come with OIS, while the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has this feature.

Primary camera aperture


Pixel XL has a rear camera with an aperture of f/2.0 while the S7 Edge's primary camera has f/1.7 aperture size. Hence, more light is allowed to pass through in case of the Galaxy S7 Edge.

Virtual Reality support


Pixel XL is Google Daydream ready out-of-the-box, while the S7 Edge is Samsung Gear VR compatible.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has an edge in external storage, water resistance, and a whole lot of content for the Gear VR. However, now that even the Galaxy S7 Edge seems to be following the blasting spree of its Note sibling, we expect our readers to make a wise decision.

Samsung has launched Gear Fit 2, the next version of their wearable fitness band. Note that its predecessor, the Gear Fit, was unveiled in 2014.

Samsung Gear Fit 2

The Gear Fit 2 boasts a simple-yet-stylish design and flaunts an ergonomic curve. It is compatible with devices that run Android 4.4 or higher, and itself runs on Samsung's Tizen OS. The battery capacity of the band is 200 mAh.

The band features an in-built heart rate monitor (HRM) and a GPS module. This ensures that distance, speed, calories burnt, and heart rate are recorded accurately. Standalone GPS means there is no need to connect the band to a smartphone to get directions. Moreover, the S Health app can be used to see the performance and related statistics.

Samsung Gear Fit 2 charging

The company claims that the wristband can automatically detect the activity from a list of activities that include walking, cycling, and running. The accuracy of these claims is yet to be verified.

The Samsung Gear Fit 2 is equipped with a 1.5-inch Super AMOLED curved display, with a resolution of 432x216 pixels. It is IP68 certified, which effectively means that the band is water and dust resistant (for up to 30 minutes in up to 1.5 m of water).

The straps are interchangeable and come in small and large sizes. The Samsung Gear Fit 2 is Bluetooth compatible.

The wristband comes in three color options, viz., black, blue and pink. It also offers a bunch of watch faces to choose from. The Samsung Gear Fit 2 will retail at $179, and compete with the likes of Microsoft Band 2 and Pebble 2.

The tablet is 6.3 mm in thickness, and weighs 693 grams. A full-sized keyboard cover, which comes included with the device, is expected to enhance the usability. The keyboard’s flexible hinge enables optimal, dual-angle viewing. The Pogo pin on the keyboard eliminates the need for pairing or charging separately.

The device delivers full PC functionality with both Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro for business.

It is the first tablet, powered by Windows, to support LTE Cat 6 for the fastest experience. With enhanced fast charging features, the battery can fully charge in just 2.5 hours, and is expected to offer up to 10.5 hours of battery life. The device is equipped with the latest generation Intel Core M processor, designed for a fanless 2-in-1 tablet, featuring only 4.5W of power consumption to eliminate noise disruption and maximize efficiency.

The device features the first Super AMOLED display present on a Windows device. It features a multitouch screen and a deeper color contrast with 94% of natural tones for a best-in-class viewing experience. The display is 12-inch in size, and is power-efficient.

To enhance productivity, a multi-port adapter (HDMI, USB Type A & C) and Bluetooth Pen are available for purchase separately. The tablet will be available globally, starting next month.

If you are a top-loader washing machine user, one thing you would love about it is the ability to add a piece of laundry, even when the wash cycle is on. This might be the reason for you not switching to front-loader machines as well. No more excuses, because Samsung makes this happen.


Samsung WW8500 AddWash

Samsung has launched the WW8500 AddWash at IFA, 2015. The machine features an extra door built on top of the upper part of the main door. By making use of this door, items can be added at any point during the wash cycle. Users need to press a button to inform the system before opening this special door. The wash cycle is then paused, and one can load extra laundry into the current wash cycle, and resume it later.

The door is child-locked so that the kids at home do not make it their playground.

Not only can this help to add any leftover laundry item to the primary load, but it can also be used to handle those special clothes which are not required to be subjected to a complete wash cycle, suggests Samsung.

Also, since home-automation is the new trend, the machine is designed to send notifications on Android or iOS app installed on your smartphone. The machine will communicate with you, and let you know before it starts a new wash cycle.
