Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus Exynos Variant Kernels Open Sourced

When Samsung showed off the latest of its Galaxy handsets, it also unveiled the fact that the physical buttons had been dropped entirely, in favor of on-screen buttons. The rest of the world will have to go for the Galaxy Note 8 instead.

Samsung has already ruled out selling a refurbished Note 7 in the United States and judging by the report, these refurbished units won't make their way to any other countries either, aside from South Korea.

Unfortunately, details of the Galaxy Note 8 are still unknown, and speculations suggest that the device is already in the making.

Samsung was forced to scrap its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones in 2016 when customers complained that they were bursting into flames and airlines banned them over safety fears.

Armenian-Americans march in LA to seek genocide recognition
What is common in both countries is that their people focus on the wording used by the world leaders - particularly that of U.S. Unlike some others, however, Obama pledged unambiguously while campaigning for the presidency to call the episode a genocide.

A new rumor has been circulating and according to Tom's Guide, this rumor claims only two models of iPhone will be launched.

After the incident of battery fires previous year, it would be expected that the refurbished Note 7 will be safer and will be having a big difference than the original design. Recently, LG has Confirmed to Supply LCD Displays to Samsung.

The recall debacle cost Samsung billions of dollars in lost profits and hammered its global credibility, forcing it to apologise to consumers and postpone the S8 launch. Ars Technica notes that it "sounds like Samsung is going to leave the responsibility for an accurate white balance up to users", and hopes that the newer batches will come with better color calibration. However, now a couple of months later, Samsung is all set to relaunch the Note 7 and bring it back from the dead. The Galaxy S8, in many regions, is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and it has been rumoured that the Galaxy S9 will use the Snapdragon 845. Apparently, the update is a crucial one, especially since it carriers up to 49 fixes for vulnerabilities that had been discovered in the Android OS, alongside a fix for 16 vulnerabilities from Samsung's own team.
