AMD will be providing the GPU side of Samsung's new Exynos 2200 SoC, with a custom RDNA 2 GPU that has been spotted in some fresh Geekbench benchmarks.
Samsung's new Exynos 2200 SoC is expected to have 8 cores with 4 of them @ up to 1.73GHz, 3 of them at up to 2.5GHz, and a single core at up to 2.59GHz. The new Geekbench results have Samsung's new Exynos 2200 performing under the Exynos 2100 chip, but we are just looking at it in engineering sample (ES) form.
The latest rumor on the RDNA 2-based GPU in Samsung's new Exynos 2200 has it featuring 384 Stream Processors, with 6 Compute Units. The new Geekbench result has the GPU listed as the Samsung Voyager EVTA1, a codename that has been used before.
Apple is expected to unveil its new iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro smartphones in less than 48 hours, with rumors surfacing of the company bumping up the max storage to 1TB on the flagship iPhone 13 Pro model.
In a new research note, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the new iPhone 13 family would drop the 64GB base model in favor of a 128GB base model. Apple will reportedly have 1TB of storage options for both the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max smartphones -- a milestone for Apple: 1TB storage in an iPhone.
Apple offering 128GB on the base iPhone 13 is good to see, and offering up to 1TB on the flagship iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max is nice to see. Even better in that there'll be a new chip powering the iPhone 13, new cameras, and a 120Hz refresh display -- which makes a big difference and will introduce an even smoother experience across the board.
Xiaomi has just confirmed that it will have 120W HyperCharge support with its next-gen Xiaomi X11T Pro smartphone, which will be debuting on September 15 at 8PM GMT.
The company confirmed the news on its official Xioami Twitter account, that its next-gen X11T Pro smartphone will have incredibly fast 120W HyperCharge support. Xiaomi had just 30W charging on the regular Mi 10T Pro, and super-fast 120W charging on its Mi 10 Ultra, but now the 11T Pro will have 120W HyperCharge support.
We are to expect Xiaomi's new X11T Pro smartphone to roll out with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, a beautiful 120Hz AMOLED display, and 5000mAh battery. The reveal event takes place on September 15, which is next week... so we don't have much more time to wait until we know all about Xiaomi's next-gen X11T Pro smartphone.
Samsung's new Galaxy Z Flip 3 smartphone is one of the most interesting, and looks to be the most awesome foldable smartphone yet -- costs $999, but is already discounted to just $699-$749.
The new Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G 128GB is discounted down to $699 at Newegg and locked to T-Mobile, a discount of $300 from its $999 MSRP. If you want an unlocked Galaxy Z Flip 3 foldable smartphone to use on any carrier, then that has $250 off which drops the price of the unlocked foldable to $749.
Samsung itself is giving consumers a $50 introductory discount on the new Galaxy Z Flip 3 foldable, and even more discount if you have a Galaxy smartphone to trade-in. Samsung is offering up to $600 credit for some of the highest online instant trade-in values.
Samsung has just unleashed its new Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 smartphones, but at the same time the South Korean giant has teased its prototype double-folding Galaxy Fold, check it out:
At the IMID 2021 (International Meeting for Information Displays) the company showed off its prototype Galaxy Fold, with its double-folding screen folding in and out like an "S" curve, which looks really cool. It was only a prototype and was obviously changed for the first-gen Galaxy Fold, which has continued on with its small front screen and large inner screen on the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
The prototype double-foldable phone rocks a 7.2-inch multi-foldable OLED panel, with Samsung calling it the Samsung Flex In & Out, which uhhh, I don't think would've been a popular name. Samsung Galaxy Flex maybe? Samsung Galaxy Fold Double? Something a little spicy, at least.
I don't know how Jerry does it, but he has utterly destroyed yet another flagship smartphone for the joy of his audience -- torturing Samsung's new foldable Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphone.
Samsung's new Galaxy Z Fold 3 foldable smartphone is a tour de force of technology, with Jerry cutting it, burning it, and just generally causing havoc with the latest flagship Galaxy foldable smartphone. Samsung's new Galaxy Z Fold 3 is IP68 waterproof... but Jerry does what he does best and rubs a handful of rocks, dirt, and dust into the phone making me cringe so hard.
The new foldable handles a flame to its front screen for around 14 seconds but survives -- while the inner 7.6-inch display takes the battle of flames for twice that long and comes out in even better condition. Samsung's new Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the most durable yet it seems, with even the fingerprint sensor on the side of the foldable phone working after being hacked and slashed by Jerry.
Apple might have a truly big surprise with the next-gen iPhone 13, with the latest rumor teasing the new iPhone will have a low-Earth-orbit (LEO) satellite communication mode.
The exciting and unexpected rumor is coming from a credible source: analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who said in his recent investor note, that he expects the new iPhone 13 to have support for LEO satellite communications. This means iPhone 13 owners will be able to make phone calls and send messages when they're in remote locations -- far away from traditional 4G and 5G tower coverage.
Inside of the new iPhone 13 will be a custom Qualcomm X60 baseband modem chip, which will support communications over satellite. The analyst says that he believes Apple will use LEO satellite communication technology inside of the upcoming Apple AR headset, the future Apple Car, and other products.
Apple shifted into the beautiful, warm arms of OLED display technology with the iPhone 12 -- and even more so with the upcoming iPhone 13 -- while the company is looking to overtake Samsung as the largest OLED smartphone company in 2021.
There are around 630 million OLED smartphone shipments in 2021 according to estimates from the Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) where it's expected to ship 176 million shipments this year -- 28% of the market. Samsung on the other hand is expected to ship 145 million OLED smartphones or 23% of the market.
How has this happened considering Samsung is the company providing Apple with 120Hz OLED displays for its new iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro smartphones? Well, Samsung's current flagship Galaxy S21 series has been the worst-performing Galaxy S family for the first 6 months, ever. Samsung has been experiencing some hiccups with the Galaxy S21 family, so much so that it has started an investigation into its smartphone business and will make changes if they're required.
Apple is expected to unveil its next-gen iPhone 13 smartphone series during its September event next month, but we all know that won't be all -- new iPad, new Apple Watch, and more.
We should expect the new 5G-pwoered iPhone 13 with its 120Hz OLED display that Apple competitor Samsung is making for the company, with the 120Hz ProMotion display to be one of the most impressive parts of the new iPhone. Apple stepping into the world of 120Hz refresh rates.
Not only that, but Apple's new iPhone 13 will also rock its new in-house A15 Bionic chip that will see more performance, efficiency, and % charts we all know and love during Apple events. But it won't just be the new iPhone 13 unveiled at the September event, but a new iPad mini, new Apple Watch Series 7, and more.
ASUS has what should be the very best gaming smartphone in the world, with the introduction of the ASUS ROG Phone 5s and ROG Phone 5s Pro gaming smartphones.
ASUS is powering its new ROG Phone 5s gaming smartphones with Qualcomm's tweaked Snapdragon 888+ platform, and it starts with... yes, starts with 16GB of RAM with an 18GB model on offer as well. But the bigger start of the show here is what will be the beautiful 6.78-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with up to 144Hz refresh rate.
ASUS is offering 60Hz, 90Hz, 120Hz, and 144Hz on the new ROG Phone 5s and ROG Phone 5s Pro -- so you can choose between PC-fast 120-144Hz, or use 60-90Hz for longer battery life. I don't know why you'd want to run the phone at anything less than the bleeding edge 120-144Hz, because that's what they're made for.
