Like the iPad Pro which went with slimmer bezels in order to pack in a larger display without making the device larger, Samsung has made some substantial changes to the Galaxy Tab S4.

The Galaxy On6 that costs Rs. 14,490 will be available for purchase exclusively through online platforms such as Flipkart and Samsung Online Shop beginning from July 5. The front camera can also be used for unlocking the smartphone in addition to a rear fingerprint sensor.

It is unlikely that Barnes and Noble will pick this up and market it as the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 for Nook, since the Samsung contract expired at the end of 2016. The main thing from stopping me from buying a Samsung tablet has also disappeared from the front - the home button.

It looks like S Pen on Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 is getting a big update: Bluetooth.

It is still predominantly Android as you know it, but the new software has been optimised for smartphones with lower performing processors, smaller amounts of memory, and less available mobile data. Also on offer is 64GB of onboard storage which is further expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card. As early as October previous year, we said the phone may implement the under-display optical fingerprint sensor and had the same speculation a few months later. The Note 9's S Pen (model EJ-PN960) got a full battery of wireless tests because it's a 2.4GHz Bluetooth LE device. The smart-phone has 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS/ A-GPS, Micro-USB, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

It is also possible that the Bluetooth connection will enable users to manipulate media players on their Note 9 - playing music, skipping tracks, starting/stopping video playback, etc. Now, the dual camera set up is what makes this smartphone even more worthy of your attention.

In the photography department, Galaxy On6 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/1.9 aperture accompanied with features like filters and stickers.
