Samsung AKG N400 TWS earbuds could outshine the Galaxy Buds+

Despite its improvements in battery life, the Galaxy Buds+ still came out as a disappointment for many who were expecting just a bit more from Samsung.

Low-cost iPhone case shows up at retailers hinting at imminent launch

Despite all the events unfolding around the COVID-19 pandemic, Apple has been expected to still push through with its new product launches. It did so almost two weeks ago with the new iPad Pros but curiously missing was the low-cost iPhone that was also expected to debut at the end of the month.

LG V60 ThinQ 5G and its Dual Screen apparently work with Active Styluses

When it comes to phones with styluses, Samsung's Galaxy Note is pretty much the only serious game in town. Yes, there are some that hide a stylus inside, like LG's Stylo/Stylus line, but these are pretty much just glorified sticks that are not exactly that different from the cheap ones you can buy with rubber or plastic tips. There have been a few random surprises, like the Moto Z4 last year. It turns out, LG might have a hidden surprise as well waiting for those who buy into its V60 ThinQ 5G and its Dual Screen promise.

Huawei Sound X wireless speaker debuts alongside Watch GT 2e

If you thought the Apple HomePod was late to the smart speaker party, you probably forgot that one other major smartphone maker still doesn't have one. Huawei did announce a new wireless speaker today but calling it smart might be a very big stretch considering, somewhat ironically, it doesn't seem to integrate Huawei's new smart assistant. Fortunately, that's not the only smart accessory it announced today, adding a new Watch GT 2e to its popular line of smartwatches.

Galaxy Buds+ power management chips go into mass production for others to use

Samsung is known for making chips that it puts in its own phones but most of the better-known ones include Exynos Systems-on-Chip (SoCs), RAM, and flash data storage. It does, however, also make a lot of other silicon, including smaller power management integrated chips or PMICs.

HyperX launches ChargePlay wireless charging grip for smartphones
