The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active appears to be real, after the model ID associated with rumors around the rugged handset was spotted on the firm’s own website. Uncovered by Roland Quandt, the model number of G892A is just one digit different to the phone its tipped to replace - the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active, which had a model number of the G891A.
Samsung rolled out its the voice assistant element of Bixby in the US just last week, and for those who own Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus handsets in the UK you may not have much longer to wait to have the same functionality after the South Korean firm sent out a teasing newsletter. Titled "Welcome Bixby, your own personal assistant" the email from Samsung UK appears to suggest than the assistant's voice control is just around the corner for British users.
The LG G6 Plus has just been announced, but rather than it being a notable step up from the standard "non-Plus" model – like the iPhone 7 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus are – there’s not a lot different on the new flagship phone. There are two main upgrades on the G6 Plus, with 128GB of storage squeezed inside which is an improvement on the 32GB in the standard LG G6, while a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC has also been incorporated into the headphone jack providing hi-res audio support.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
