Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime Starts Receiving Android 8.1 Oreo Update: Report


Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime has reportedly started receiving the Android 8.0 Oreo update. The mobile software market saw the release of the final build of Android Pie last month, but availability is currently limited to only Google’s Pixel range of smartphones and tablets, as well as the Essential Phone. While partnered OEMs have announced the rollout of the latest Android version for their devices, Samsung is managing to roll out Android Oreo for many of its smartphones.

Earlier this month, we reported that the Samsung Galaxy J7 Nxt and the Galaxy J5 Prime will receive the update this month and the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) will get Android Oreo update later in December. Upholding the promise, Samsung has now started to roll out the Android 8.0 Oreo update to Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime users in some regions after releasing the Android 8.1 Oreo update to Galaxy J7 Nxt.

As per a SamMobile report, Samsung has started rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update to Galaxy J5 Prime users. The rollout has reportedly begun only in UAE, but it is expected to reach in other countries, including India, in a phased manner. The update is reaching users over-the-air (OTA), so be sure to check for an update manually in Settings, if you already haven’t received a notification. Also, the update is said to be arriving with the latest September 2018 security patch.

As mentioned, the Android Oreo update for the Galaxy J5 Prime is rolling out as an over-the-air (OTA) package. You can check its availability on your device by going to Settings > Software updates. It is recommended to back up your data before proceeding with the update. You are also advised to use a high-speed data or Wi-Fi connectivity to download the update.

To recall, the Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime was initially launched back in 2016, and a new 32GB storage variant was announced earlier this year. The smartphone, launched with Android 6.0 Marshmallow had received the Android 7.0 Nougat update October last.

In terms of specifications, the dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime is powered by the Samsung Exynos 7870 SoC, paired with 3GB of RAM. It supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB).

Samsung Galaxy J4+, Galaxy J6+ Spotted on Bluetooth Certification Site, New Galaxy A Series Handset Listed in Spain


Samsung Galaxy J6+ and Galaxy J4+ seem all set for an official unveiling soon. The two upcoming smartphones have been spotted on Bluetooth SIG’s portal, and are expected to be launched by Samsung soon, with no information around whether India would be among the first markets to get them. The two phones have been spotted with model numbers SM-J610 and SM-J415, respectively. Yet another Samsung phone, this time from the Galaxy A series, has been spotted on the tech giant’s Spanish website and may be launched in the coming weeks.

The Samsung Galaxy J6+ and Galaxy J4+ have been spotted on Bluetooth SIG, as first reported by Dutch blog Galaxy Club. With model number SM-J610F, the Galaxy J6+ has been listed to arrive in single- and dual-SIM variants. This phone was previously reported to get the Samsung Galaxy J6 Prime moniker. Even the Galaxy J4+ was expected to get the Galaxy J4 Prime name tag. As per reports, the two phones are expected to run Android 8.1 Oreo, and will be powered by Qualcomm’s range of SoCs, instead of Samsung’s in-house Exynos lineup. Both of the phones are reported to be made available first in The Netherlands and Vietnam.

Another report from Galaxy Club gives us a look at an upcoming Samsung Galaxy A series smartphones, with model number SM-A750N, which has been listed on Samsung Spain’s website. Apart from the fact that this phone will have dual-SIM support, there are no other details on this handset including specifications, pricing, and design elements. It could be the Samsung Galaxy A8 (2019) or the Galaxy A7 (2018).

A recent report had Samsung’s mobile chief DJ Koh stating that the company would soon look to rethink its mid-range smartphone segment strategy by adding new features at an affordable price point. These would be the next few offerings from the South Korean giant ever since that announcement and it would be interesting to see what differentiation these handsets offer compared to the Galaxy J4 and Galaxy J6.

Samsung Said to Launch Smartphone With 4 Rear Cameras in 2018


Samsung is reportedly working on a smartphone with four cameras that it plans to launch this year. The South Korean giant recently announced that it may unveil the world’s first foldable smartphone in 2018, and now a new report has suggested that a handset with a four-camera setup could be in the works too. Interestingly, the new smartphone from Samsung will not be called the Galaxy S10 or Galaxy F.

Renowned anonymous tipster Ice Universe took to Twitter this week to suggest that Samsung is going to launch a new smartphone later this year and it will come with a four rear camera setup on one side. The first cryptic tweet by the tipster did not reveal much, but hinted at the presence of four cameras on a Samsung smartphone. However, in the same Twitter thread, the tipster shed more light on the upcoming smartphone.

When asked whether the four cameras meant two cameras on each side, Ice Universe responded by tweeting that all the cameras will be at the back. The tipster also noted that the handset won’t be called Galaxy S10 or Galaxy F. The tipster, however, did not mention the name of the smartphone. Some users also asked if the Samsung handset will launch next year or 2020. Interestingly, Ice Universe said that the smartphone will be unveiled in 2018 itself.

It is not surprising to see such speculations churning out of the rumour mill. However, it is advisable to take such leaks with a pinch of salt, since Samsung has not officially informed about any such smartphones in its lineup yet.

One Dead, Two Injured in Gas Leak at Samsung Chip Plant


One worker was killed and two injured when carbon dioxide leaked at a Samsung Electronics chip plant on Tuesday, the South Korean company said.

The three were found unconscious in the basement of the semiconductor factory in Suwon just south of Seoul, the firm said in a statement.

A man aged 24 was pronounced dead in hospital hours later and two others, aged 26 and 54, remain unconscious, Samsung said.

All were employees of one of Samsung’s suppliers and were inspecting the factory’s gas-related facilities, it added.

“It is believed that the cause of death is suffocation due to a carbon dioxide leak,” Samsung said, adding it was investigating.

Samsung – the world’s top maker of smartphones as well as memory chips – operates a vast semiconductor production compound in Suwon.

Fatal accidents at major companies have made frequent headlines in the South, which has struggled to improve poor safety standards in factories.

In January four workers suffocated due to a gas leak at a steel factory owned by Posco – the country’s top steelmaker – in the southern city of Pohang.

In August last year four workers died when a fuel tank exploded in a vessel under construction at the headquarters of STX Offshore and Shipbuilding in the southern city of Changwon.
