While it's hardly pulling the curtain back on its entire CES 2012 slate of products, Samsung's earliest preview for your AV pleasure is an updated range of HTIB systems and sound bars, as well as two new Audio Docks that support Apple devices as well as its own Galaxy S phones and players.
How much would you pay for a good pair of headphones? $50? $200? How about $55,000? Sennheiser, purveyor of all things high-end audio, has released an update to its legendary Orpheus headphones , which combine an electrostatic set of cans with a valve pre-amp clad in solid marble.
Samsung Electronics has just introduced new speakers: the R1, R3, and R5 Wireless Audio 360 speakers. These new systems are expected to be showcased by the South Korean giant at the IFA 2015 event in Berlin next week. All models offer omni-directional audio and boast off built-in tap-and-swipe user interface.
The company is reportedly considering the inclusion of a retina scanner in some versions of its new flagship, although that is not yet set in stone. Like the Galaxy S6, Samsung will debut two models: the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. With the inclusion of a pressure-sensitive display, Samsung looks set to follow Apple, which is already touting "3D Touch" functionality .
After weeks of waiting, and more than few leaks, Samsung has made its new Galaxy A9 smartphone official with an announcement in China this week. As the latest model of the Galaxy A line of devices, which sits just below Samsung's flagship lineup, the new A9 is on the edge of phablet territory with its large 6-inch screen, placing it atop the A7 (5.5 inches), A5 (5.2 inches), and A3 (4.
At the start of 2015, Sony effectively gave up on making smartphones in the hope of recapturing former glories. Its mobile division now loses the company nearly $2 million per day even after being slimmed down to a fraction of its former size.
Now we know one of the new things that the Galaxy S7 could be boasting about next year. That is, if you lavish attention to intricate tech details such as these. Samsung has just announced the Exynos 8890, its first chip in the new Exynos 8 Octa series.
If you think that the Galaxy View is simply an extra large tablet, well, you're wrong. We've been saying it's just a huge tablet but according to Samsung-- it's not. The South Korean tech giant claims that it is a "movable display". You may not agree that there is a difference but the company insists that the 18.4-inch device is a display that you can touch and move.

It seems that Samsung is starting to warm up its production lines as well as that of its component partners, according to the latest word from unnamed sources. Samsung has apparently set down how many flagship devices it will produce on its initial run. That will be 5 million units, split between two Galaxy S7 models.
I'll say this up front: The V10 has the best second-screen implementation I've seen to date. That's partly because earlier approaches tended to be utterly impractical (who actually wrote dual-screen apps for the Echo?), but I was still happier to use LG's 1,040 x 160 mini display than I had anticipated. At a basic level, it was handy for notifications.
You can't knock Samsung 's commitment to wireless charging. Having decided to embrace it in the latest Galaxy range, it went whole-hog, packing in both wireless types and, with the launch of the Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+, introducing a faster version too, with the promise of cutting almost an hour from regular wireless charging.
A team of students from MIT has won the top spot in a design contest for the SpaceX Hyperloop high-speed transportation system. The contest was held at Texas A&M University and included over 100 other design teams from around the world. The MIT students are all graduate students and won the overall design award for the pod that will ride inside the Hyperloop.
Samsung is always working on the next big thing when it comes to smartphones. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are old news on the market and prices are already coming down in an effort to move more devices. Samsung has never been exactly watertight when it comes to details leaking about future products. A recent leak has dropped a few hints about the Galaxy S7 smartphone.
It’s no great secret that even at the highest volume, the sound level on a phone is rather lacking. A Bluetooth or wired speaker system is a necessity if you are using your phone to stream music at home. The trade offs with those solutions though are the inconvenience of portability as well as having yet another device to keep charged or powered.
It's no secret that many tech companieshatevideo formats that are closed, cost money or both -- enough so that they'lldrop popular standardsanddevelop their own codecs. There hasn't been a concerted attempt to tackle this problem, however, which is why several industry giants have justlaunchedthe Alliance for Open Media.
Before you get too excited, that wasn't a typo in the title. It's really gigabits, not gigabytes. That means 8 bits for every byte, meaning that a 256 Gb (gigabit) NAND chip equates to a 32 GB (gigabyte) capacity. But now before you go belittling Samsung 's announcement because of the numbers, what the consumer electronics company came up with is still a notable achievement.
Earlier this year it became apparent that HTC was releasing ads disguised as notifications to users - now Samsung may be on the same path. What we're seeing here is a set of notifications that'll pop up in the pull-down notifications and settings menu on an Android device - newer Samsung devices, in this case - that'll link to a Samsung webpage where the items advertised are for sale.
