Samsung has confirmed plans to bring its Android 8.0 Oreo update to older Galaxy devices

There isn't too much information that can be gleaned from the benchmarks, but there are a few important things we've learned.

Samsung Electronics Co.'s latest S9 flagship received the highest marks of any display now on the market by global panel tester DisplayMate, industry watchers said Thursday.

The majority of new flagships offer improvements over their predecessor, and the same can be said for the Galaxy S9.

Although there's still time for the launch of the device, Samsung is working hard on the same especially because of the horror it faced with Galaxy Note 7...

Samsung's also planning to tune down the Exynos variant to match the Snapdragon one's performance. But that's not to say the Sirocco is blown away - it matches the 6 GB RAM on the S9+, and actually comes with greater onboard storage (128 GB as against 64 GB).

However, Consumer Reports has named the iPhone X the smartphone with the best camera beating the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Samsung Galaxy S8 with the S9 and S9 Plus to be rated later this month. The company even tacitly admitted the security failings by not allowing face-recognition to be used for its Apple Pay competitor, Samsung Pay.
