Samsung has just introduced the latest member of its Galaxy family of products, with the introduction of the new Galaxy SmartTag. Check it out:
The introduction of the new Galaxy SmartTag has been in the planning for a while, as it is controlled by the new SmartThings Find service that Samsung launched recently. Samsung's new Galaxy SmartTag uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology, and has a button that lets you start a pre-defined smart home routine -- turning on a light, or your air conditioning for example.
Samsung's new Galaxy SmartTag works just like a Tile tracker, pairing with your smartphone through the Samaung SmartThings app. You can search for the Galaxy SmartTag, and when you get close to whatever the tag is attached to -- a bag, keys, or even something like a Nintendo Switch -- you can tap your phone and the tag will make a noise so you can easily find it.
LG first began work on its now Rollable smartphone back when it was known as the "Explorer Project" experiments, but here we are: LG's new foldable smartphone competitor to Samsung's growing line of foldables.
The new LG Rollable smartphone has what LG calls a "unique resizable screen" that extends the smartphone, turning it into a larger, more tablet-like display. The display slides in and out of its place, making the screen bigger when you need it. Reading a message? You might use the small screen, but replying to it? You might want to extend it to use the keyboard easier... or to watch a video on the bigger screen.
LG has confirmed it's branded the new roll-out smartphone as the Rollable, and will be releasing it later this year. We don't know the exact pricing just yet, but leaks have suggested that the upcoming LG Rollable smartphone will cost somewhere in the vicinity of $2350.
Samsung is about to reveal its next-gen Galaxy S21 series of smartphones, with new rumors that the company will be making their phones a bit cheaper than their predecessors.
The latest news is coming from a Belgian carrier that says that it expects the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ smartphones will be cheaper than their predecessors in the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+. Meanwhile, the flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra will reportedly cost a tad more than the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
Samsung's new Galaxy S21 family of smartphones will be launched on January 14, with the flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra shaping up really, really well.
The flagship Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra will have a 120Hz refresh rate and full QHD+ resolution, which you can have both enabled at the same time. Unlike the current flagship Galaxy S20 Ultra which forces you to choose either the native QHD+ resolution or 120Hz, you can't have both at the same time -- but you can on the Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Samsung leaker @Universelce has now revealed the news with a screenshot explaining: "Galaxy S21 Ultra realizes WQHD+ resolution and 120Hz adaptive refresh rate can be turned on at the same time".
OnePlus is about to change the smartphone game in 2021 with the upcoming launch of its two new smartphones: the OnePlus Nord N10 5G flagship, and the Nord N100 value champion smartphone.
Both of the new Nord smartphones rock 90Hz displays -- impressive considering the Nord N10 5G is $299 and the Nord N100 is just $179 -- yes, a $179 smartphone with a 90Hz display. This is normally a feature you'd get for $750-$1000+ but OnePlus is doing it starting at $179 in the US on January 15, 2021.
The new flagship OnePlus Nord N10 5G has a 6.49-inch 90Hz display and 30W fast-charging -- inside, it'll be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 processor, 6GB of RAM, 5G technology, four rear cameras, and more. The Nord N10 5G might have 5G, but it is limited to slower low and mid-band 5G in the US, with no support for mmWave 5G.
Samsung is about to unleash its new family of Galaxy S21 smartphones, led by the flagship Galaxy S21 Ultra that will have the ultimate camera system of them all.
We have some new information thanks to leaker Evan Blass, who has shared some details through an infographic on the specs for Samsung's new Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphone. Samsung will be using a 108-megapixel main sensor, which will also be flanked by two 10-megapixel telephoto sensors and a 12-megapixel camera.
Samsung will use a regular 12-megapixel main sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide and 64-megapixel telephoto sensor on the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+ smartphones. We should expect 8K 30FPS and 4K 60FPS video shooting abilities on Samsung's new flock of Galaxy S21 smartphones, and some speedy horsepower with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 888 chipset.
We knew it was coming but now we have an exact date and time: Samsung will be hosting its Galaxy Unpacked 2021 event on January 14 at 10AM EST or 7AM PST -- virtually, of course.
Samsung teases its upcoming Galaxy Unpacked 2021 event: "Over the past year, mobile technology has taken center stage in everyday life as people are working remotely and spending more time at home. The accelerated transition to a mobile-first world brings with it the need for devices that can transform everyday life into an extraordinary experience".
We should expect to see Samsung unveil a bunch of new devices, which will be led by the new Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and the new Galaxy S21 Ultra. We should also see a new release and improved wireless Galaxy Buds, which will take a few swings at Apple and their AirPods, and newly-released AirPods Max headphones.
It looks like Apple is set to release a next-gen iPad in 2021 that will not only have 5G connectivity, but also a next-gen mini-LED display.
According to a new Digitimes report, Apple will have a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro with mini LED display technology in Q1 2021. Apple has diversified its supply chain when it comes to displays and touch panels, with BOE gaining approval to supply OLED displays to Apple for its new iPhone, while GIS will make touch models for the new iPad Pro with mini LED.
Apple's new iPad Pro with mini LED display technology will also come with 5G connectivity, the first iPad with 5G. Apple will have its new iPhones and new Mac Book Pros with a totally new form factor in 2021, both with mini LED display technology.
Samsung will be releasing its next-gen Galaxy S21 family of smartphones early next year, where you can now even reserve your new Galaxy S21 if you're living in the US. But what if you wanted a super limited edition version of the Galaxy S21? It'll cost you $60K, though.
Caviar has announced its new Galaxy S21 Ultra Limited Edition smartphone, which starts from $63,000 with 128GB of internal storage and the beautiful 18-karat gold style. What Caviar is doing here is using the 18-karat gold with beautiful lines that were engraved into the number 21 -- get it, Galaxy S21.
Inside, the Galaxy S21 Ultra rocks a large 5000mAh battery, 6.8-inch QHD+ 120Hz display, a family of rear-facing cameras and I'm sure much more internally. We'll know more when Samsung unveils the new Galaxy S21 family of smartphones on January 14, 2021.
Samsung is ending 2020 with the huge hype train up to the release of their next-gen Galaxy S21 family of smartphones, opening up the pre-order registrations for US users for the upcoming phone.
