Samsung’s latest phablet has a much needed 4,000mAh battery, either 128GB or a crazy 512GB capacity, microSD slot and USB-C port. Like the S9 and S9+, it’s water- and dust-resistant and has a variable aperture camera. Its stylus can also be used as a remote control.
The S9 and S9+ have a camera that can switch between f/1.5 for low light or f/2.4 for daylight, and can capture 960fps slow-mo video. The S9+ also gets the Note 8’s second wide angle camera. They still have the borderless display, headphone jack and microSD slot.
Both the Galaxy Note 8 and its stylus are water-resistant, and the latter now has text translation and editable off-screen memos. The phone has two 12MP rear cameras that can shoot at the same time for adjustable background blur. Then there’s that immersive 6.3″ AMOLED display.
The heavy duty Samsung Galaxy S8 Active has a shatter-resistant display and a metal frame that protects the phone from shock, vibration and scratches, in addition to being dust- and water-resistant. It also has a larger battery (4,000mAh) compared to the standard S8.
Samsung keeps curved screens alive with its bonkers 49″ 32:9 3840×1080 QLED monitor. Aimed primarily at gamers, the CHG90 has a 144Hz refresh rate and AMD FreeSync compatibility. But with the ability to show up to six separate screens, it’s a workhorse as well.

Samsung’s ad agency got Lil Wayne to stay sober long enough to film this commercial. Now Weezy’s not saying the Galaxy S7 is better than other phones in any way, form or fashion, but as far as this waterproof thing goes he thinks it’s better than all other phones.
Time to put your 4K TV to work. Samsung’s UBD-K8500 is the world’s first Ultra HD Blu-ray player, offering dramatically better image quality than streamed content. Over 100 movies will be available in the new format. The player can also upscale DVD and Blu-ray movies.
This pocket-sized storage device is bit larger and heavier than its predecessor, but the Samsung T3 external SSD is still a tiny data vault. It’s also shock-resistant and supports AES 256-bit encryption. Most importantly, it will be available in up to 2TB capacity.
