Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra massive leak shows entirely too much

It would appear that the leaks are coming early this year for the next-generation Samsung Galaxy S device collection. Today we're seeing the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, the highest-end version of the Samsung Galaxy S series for the year 2022. This device has a quad-camera system on its back and an S Pen similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 20. This device has an S Pen slot, too - allowing the stylus to fit in and be carried by the phone, again not unlike the Galaxy Note series.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 vs Microsoft Surface Duo 2 – the better foldable

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 vs Microsoft Surface Duo 2 – the better foldable

Microsoft just unveiled the Surface Duo 2 and, unless Google pulls a surprise next month, we have now seen all the foldable devices for this year. Although there are other players in that niche category, like Royole, Huawei, and Xiaomi, the two biggest names that have surfaced this year are the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Surface Duo 2. Unsurprisingly, there will be comparisons between the two, and we examine the most important aspects of these two in order to give that verdict.

Surface Duo 2 promised to get three years of updates

Surface Duo 2 promised to get three years of updates

Smartphone makers seem to have finally wised up and noticed how important software updates are to consumers these days. Many users have more or less understood by now that updated software is, more often than not, safer software. Of course, committing publicly and actually following through with those promises are two different things, but it's still commendable that Microsoft is promising to support the Surface Duo 2 with software updates for at least three years.

Surface Duo Android 11 update is still coming this year

Surface Duo Android 11 update is still coming this year

Microsoft just announced the Surface Duo 2, and it is clearly what the first Surface Duo should have been the very first time around. It has hardware made for the year it was launched, pulling very few punches this time. Its launch, however, might have caused some of the owners of the first-gen dual-screen device concern over software support, and Microsoft is putting those fears to rest with the promise of an Android 11 before the year is over.

Pixel 6 Pro Camera app reveals upcoming features

Google's Pixel phones have never had the best camera hardware in the market, but Google proved its photography prowess by compensating for it with advanced algorithms and AI. After many generations, Google is seemingly ready to upgrade its imaging sensors while still relying on software to make up for what hardware might lack. Google is, of course, still mum on the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro's camera features, but a teardown of the Camera app, fortunately, provides hints of what's to come.

Galaxy S21 FE production might be in better shape now

Galaxy S21 FE production might be in better shape now

Companies that regularly make consumer products, especially consumer electronics, often try to hit a certain window of time for launching new products. This window is determined by multiple factors, including market "seasons," pacing with other products from the same company, and competitors' schedules. Missing that window of opportunity can send ripples that affect not only the company's profits but also those of its partners, especially manufacturers. That's why it's critical for Samsung to get the Galaxy S21 FE out stat, which will hopefully be easier now that it has reportedly addressed its production problems.

EU proposes USB-C charging standard and Apple isn’t happy

The European Commission today took a big step toward making USB-C the charging standard for many devices sold in Europe.

Galaxy Flex Note patent has an ingenious idea for storing the S Pen

Galaxy Flex Note patent has an ingenious idea for storing the S Pen

The Galaxy Z Fold 3's adoption of S Pen and Wacom technologies was widely praised, but its treatment of the stylus received the completely opposite feedback. Sold separately and without any home for it on the device, some regarded the S Pen as an optional afterthought rather than a selling feature. The balance between having a thin device and a comfortable stylus has always been a delicate dance, but a new Samsung patent plays around with the idea of a foldable device that does have room for the S Pen in a rather intriguing way.
