New Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Silver Variant Likely To Be Launched Soon

New Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Silver Variant Likely To Be Launched Soon

Patience is a virtue, and if you managed to avoid the hype and not buy a Galaxy Note 9 on launch day in hopes of a good deal, today might be your day.

The new iPhone XS and XS Max use an LTE modem that we've never seen used anywhere else: the Intel XMM7560.

In usual waist height and head height drop tests, both the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max survived without any problem.

PCMag also looked at real-world speed data from Ookla Speedtest (disclosure: ExtremeTech's parent company Ziff Davis also owns Ookla). Unlike other speed tests, the Phone Buff style is conducted using a specialized machine to ensure there's no margin of error.

The tests were conducted on 20MHz channel of Band 4 which is used by major carriers in the USA as well as Canada. This channel is used by major carriers in the United States as well as Canada including, AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc. Thanks to well-tuned 4×4 MIMO antennas on iPhone XS, speeds doubled in strong signal conditions -85dBm. In good signal conditions, they double the phone's speeds, but they also help in weak signal conditions.

For Samsung's Galaxy Note 9, the S Pen game plan revolves around making the stylus a more natural and meaningful to interact with apps and the smartphone.

The iPhone XS Max comes closest to its Android rivals at signal levels below -120 dBm, when there is between zero and one bar of reception. The iPhone XS showed an average of 6.6Mbps faster downloads on all United States carriers compared with the iPhone X. In Canada, that difference is a whopping 20.2Mbps.

The performance of Intel's latest Intel modem is more important than usual because that's all Apple is using now.

Though the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max LTE speed has improved dramatically compared to iPhone X, users have complained about cellular connectivity issues on the new models. In the United States, the Galaxy Note 9 shows mean LTE download speeds of 43.2Mbps to the iPhone's 38.9Mbps for the week of September 24.
