Samsung Dolby Atmos Soundbars Now Available to Order

Back in the spring, Samsung Electronics had announced plans to pack Dolby Atmos support into two new soundbar products. The company has just started taking pre-orders on both of those options, promising to deliver before the end of the summer.

The HW-K950 is actually the first Dolby Atmos soundbar "package," which means it includes two wireless rear speakers and a wireless subwoofer. The company is also releasing the HW-K850, which comes with a wireless subwoofer as well. Both are Samsung's first soundbar products to get Dolby Atmos Cinema Sound, which promises that immersive audio experience without the need for speakers around the room and/or on the ceiling.

Having this tech built into the soundbar means that the HW-K950 can deliver 5.1.4-channel sound, with the HW-K850 promising a 3.1.2-channel experience. Measuring just 2.1 inches high, the HW-K950 has three forward-facing and two upwards-facing speakers. Both models can connect wirelessly to the components included with each package, which makes for a very easy setup.


Samsung says that each product was developed at the company's Audio Lab in Valencia, California. Our editor Chris Boylan got to hear the latest version of each one at the Audio Lab, stating that the sound was vastly improved over the prototype versions shown at CES back in January 2016.

Samsung is currently taking pre-orders for the HW-K950 and the HW-K850. Both will ship sometime before the end of this summer, priced at $1,499 and $999, respectively.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
