The Galaxy Note 10 smartphone may not be the only device Samsung reveals at its August 7th event in New York City — it’ll be joined by a full-size Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 slate with its very own S-Pen stylus, according to Android Headlines.We’d previously seen real-world images of that tablet leak out last week, but AH is now contributing a heck of a lot more grist to the rumor mill, including that August 7th date and a wide array of what appear to be official press renders for the device.They more clearly show the tablet’s dual cameras, quad speakers, and lack of a headphone jack, as well as our first glimpse at the tablet’s stylus, optional keyboard cover, and Microsoft Surface-esque kickstand.Perhaps most importantly, they give us corroboration of the unusual place Samsung expects you to stick that pen: right on the back of the slate.A magnetically-attached stylus would presumably make the tablet awkward to set down on a table, and it could also just make holding the table in portrait feel weird.We’ll have to wait to actually do both with a real unit to see if Samsung really did think through those ergonomics, and we’ll want to compare with the iPad Pro — which also uses a magnetically attached stylus (sold separately) but lets you set it flat on a table.

Finally, an Android tablet that doesn’t just deliver the same formula again, and again.The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 was leaked today in three colors, one each of a silver, a blue, and a pink.We’ve not yet confirmed the color names, but that’s basically what’s shown in these first images.And they’ve all got their own S Pens that attach with some friendly magnetics.There’ll likely be a microSD card slot, though that’s not guaranteed, and there’ll probably be a larger version with 256GB internal storage, just for the taste of it!These tablets will likely come at a time not too far from the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

In the Second Quarter of 2019, Huawei started to experience the negative impact caused by the struggle with US authorities.The research published by Kantar came today to shed some light on this situation.While still achieving a better Q2 compared to Q2 2018, Huawei’s sales in Europe’s large markets were down 1.9% over the first quarter and 9% from May to June.The Chinese Behemoth started to feel the biggest impact during the past two months.While Huawei lost presence, Samsung and Xiaomi both lifted their numbers thanks to the situation.According to Kantar, the negative press surrounding Huawei since it went on the US’ Entities list, caused customers to second guess acquiring a Huawei device.

In the United States in the second quarter of the year 2019 it was the iPhone XR that did best in unit sales, followed soon thereafter by a couple other Apple devices.Both big gainers sell Android phones: Google and Motorola.Motorola saw a 3.3% increase vs this same period one year ago, coming up to an 8.1% share – that’s nowhere near the leaders, but it’s still big news for a brand that’s fallen so far from dominance in the past half-decade.Data from Kantar World Panel shows that the iPhone XR was the top selling model smartphone in the USA in the three month period that began in April, 2019, and it was the iPhone 8 that came next – believe it or not.The third best-selling smartphone in the USA in Q2 was the Apple iPhone XS Max.Numbers four and five on the best-selling-model list for smartphones here in the United States were both Samsung smartphones.

If there is one area in which Samsung has lagged behind its Chinese competitors Huawei or Oppo, it is fast charging.The Korean manufacturer has so far been content with a simple recharge up to 25W for its top models.This was particularly the case on the Galaxy S10.Nevertheless, things should change with the new Galaxy Note 10 range that will be unveiled on August 7th.Indeed, many hoped that Samsung finally goes to 45 Watts for fast charging.And they will be happy to learn that it will be the case, at least in part.

With Qualcomm having revealed its new gaming-centric Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset overnight, which is officially set to debut with the release of Asus ROG Phone 2 next week, Samsung fans may have been hoping that the updated processor might find its way into the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 Plus.Unfortunately, that probably won't happen, as according to 9to5Google (via Dutch site WinFuture), the US version of Samsung's upcoming productivity-focused flagship will stick with the standard Snapdragon 855 system-on-a-chip (SoC) – the part that's currently powering the company's Galaxy S10 range.While that may be disappointing to hear for North American Note fans, as with other Galaxy handsets the international version of the Note 10 will reportedly use Samsung's own Exynos SoC – and specifically a brand new Exynos 9825 model.The as-yet-unannounced SoC is expected to be an upgrade from the 8-nanometer (nm) Exynos 9820 chipset, which is featured in the international Galaxy S10, and there's a chance it will be built with Samsung's 7nm process, which would allow the Exynos 9825 to offer more energy efficiency, and would put the Korean-made SoC more in line with the US models' Snapdragon 855 SoC in terms of power.Of course, we won't know this for sure until Samsung officially reveals its highly-anticipated Note 10 range at the handset's launch, which has been confirmed for August 7 in New York.

Galaxy Note fans might be in for yet another disappointment with this year’s models.Yes, plural as it might affect both the normal model and the Plus model.Emotions ran high when Qualcomm announced the Snapdragon 855+, which seems to be perfect timing for the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+.Unfortunately, a new leak claims that that will not be the case and that some models will be left with an older Snapdragon while others will use a fresh new Exynos chip.Samsung has always used a two-chip strategy when it came to its flagship phones.Due to licensing or legal considerations, some models are equipped with Samsung’s latest Exynos chips while some run on Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon.

Director Taika Waititi is a hot commodity in Hollywood these days, with no sign of his star fading any time soon.He's just signed on with Marvel Studios to direct Thor 4, according to the Hollywood Reporter, and Chris Hemsworth is expected to return as the titular god of thunder.The first Thor was mostly good, blending action and comedy in a winning mix, although it wasn't quite as strong as other origin stories in the MCU.Well, The Dark World suffered from early pacing problems and an overly elaborate plot, bolstered primarily by terrific performances by Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston as Loki.Then Marvel, in a savvy move, hired relative newcomer Waititi to direct 2017's Thor: Ragnarok.At the time, the director was best known for his cult hit, What We Do in the Shadows (now a half-hour comedy series on FX) and 2016's, Hunt for the Wilderpeople—a charming, poignant comedy-drama that deserves a much wider audience.
