Samsung Electronics on Monday blamed batteries supplied by two manufacturers for the overheating and even explosions of some Galaxy Note7 phones, as it tried to provide a long due explanation for the issues surrounding the smartphone.
This should give a needed boost to Google's Nougat numbers, which still show a pitifully small dent in the overall ecosystem.
Samsung is taking its first step into gaming PCs with its Odyssey line of laptops. An affordable 15-inch model comes first, with a 17-incher coming in a few months.
Research by team of engineers reveals that the Samsung Galaxy Note7's case, not the batteries, was the problem.
From a new digital assistant to a beefed up camera, Samsung is angling for a major comeback in the new year.
Display supply might not meet Apple's demand.
A "smaller" version is no slouch either, coming in at 5.7 inches in a clear attempt to win back fans of the Galaxy Note line.
If you don't mind a few hiccups, you'll be able to join in on a limited beta test of Android 7.0 on Nov. 9.
The mea culpa pledges that the company will learn from the incident and get to the very bottom of why it happened.
Not content to cede the artificial intelligence market to Google, the AI effort will be a key part of a comeback after the Note7 fiasco.
The users of millions of faulty Samsung Galaxy Note7s face a another potential dilemma: The fate of their personal data on the devices.
Samsung sold more smartphones than Apple in Q3 2016, but the Galaxy S7 recall devastated its profits.
The release of Apple’s new Series 1 and Series 2 smartwatch models late in Q3 of this year, saw the vendor ship 2.8 million devices.
Samsung's cancellation of the Galaxy Note7 hurt Qualcomm's chip sales, but the company expects other smartphones to fill that void.
Apple and Samsung are the tablet leaders, even though the market continues to decline overall.
