Samsung foldable phone reveal looks imminent, teased in new Paris billboards

By | January 14th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

With Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked 2019 event scheduled for February 20, it's always been assumed that the company's upcoming Galaxy S10 smartphone range would be officially revealed at the conference.

Now, it seems it won't be alone – thanks to some not-so-cryptic billboards installed at the famous Place de la Concorde in Paris, France, it appears that Samsung's highly-anticipated foldable phone will also be officially unveiled at the event. 

Written in Hangeul, which is the South Korean alphabet, the billboards read “미래를 펼치다” and “이월 이십일”, which translates to “The future unfolds” and “February twentieth.”

Samsung's delightfully unsubtle messages back up previous claims that the Galaxy X (or Galaxy F, as it's also known) would be making an appearance at the event, which will be held just one week prior to MWC 2019.… Read the full article

Samsung’s new Galaxy M phones aim to take on cheap Chinese rivals

By | January 14th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Eager to take the fight to Chinese smartphone manufacturers, Samsung is planning to launch a new range of budget Galaxy M series phones in 2019, with the handsets expected to arrive in India first, as reported by Reuters

Samsung's decision to debut the new budget handset line in India is believed to be a direct result of the South Korean company's market share having recently been overtaken by Xiaomi in the region. 

Expected to arrive in India by the end of January (or around a month before the flagship Galaxy S10 is revealed), the Galaxy M10, M20 and M30 will be sold exclusively through Samsung's online store and Amazon's Indian site, with plans for a full global rollout to come shortly after.… Read the full article

By | January 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

As far back as August, we reported that Amazon and IMDb were teaming up to launch a new ad-supported streaming service for Fire TV devices in 2019, offering free access to a huge number of movies and TV shows. 

Now, that service is officially open for business in the US – dubbed IMDb Freedive, the video-on-demand offering currently provides users with around 130 movies and 29 TV shows to stream for free, as reported by Variety

Along with a selection of high quality films available on the Freedive video channel – which includes the likes of Drive, Adaptation, True Romance, Memento and The Last Samurai – viewers will also be able to stream a somewhat random mix of television shows, such as Gilligan's Island, The Bachelor, Duck Dynasty and Heroes. 

Although it was previously speculated that Freedive would be available exclusively for Amazon Fire TV devices, today's launch has revealed that users will be able to watch the new service from their computer's internet browser. 

People in the US can head over to the IMDb Freedive website to sign up for the service now.… Read the full article
