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.

Galaxy S21 FE production is reportedly off to a bad start

Galaxy S21 FE production is reportedly off to a bad start

Since fewer people will probably buy a Galaxy Z Fold 3 or Galaxy Z Flip 3 in lieu of the absence of a Galaxy Note 21 this year, Samsung is left with a rather large gap between Galaxy S series flagships in 2021 and 2022. That gap would have been partially filled by a Fan Edition, but that strategy might not pay off, at least based on how things are off to a rough start. Although not terribly late, the Galaxy S21 FE might have limited availability based on reported numbers coming from the production lines.

Honor could still be sanctioned if US agencies can actually agree on it

Honor could still be sanctioned if US agencies can actually agree on it

It isn't surprising to hear about Huawei's attempts to circumvent US sanctions that prevent it from buying products, technologies, and even software from former partners like Qualcomm and Google. For example, it ordered some 4G-only Snapdragon chips to bypass its ban from touching anything related to 5G. Some lawmakers and government officials in the US see its sale of Honor to a consortium as one of those evasive maneuvers and want the former subsidiary to be put on the same Entity List. Unfortunately for them, their own colleagues have placed the decision in a deadlock.

Pixel 6 Pro hands-on videos reveal interesting details

Pixel 6 Pro hands-on videos reveal interesting details

Now that Apple has unveiled its smartphone champion for the next 12 months, Android loyals are probably preparing for what could be the most notable Google phone in recent years. Based on leaks and rumors, the Pixel 6, particularly the Pixel 6 Pro, will be breaking away from the Pixel trend in the past five years since the first Google-designed phone. That's pretty obvious in looks, but there are also a lot of other changes both inside and outside that are now being revealed or confirmed by what may be the first hands-on video of the Pixel 6 Pro.

Pixel 6 Live Translate might finally live up to Google Goggles’ promise

Pixel 6 Live Translate might finally live up to Google Goggles’ promise

An early peek at the inner workings of the Google Pixel 6 appeared to show the newest version of the device's Live Translate feature. Much like the device's ability to tell the user the artist and title of a song played locally, the Google Pixel 6 has the ability to translate languages in real time. It's entirely possible this feature will also appear on a variety of smartphones running Android 12 in the near future.

Galaxy A13 5G 50MP camera might be the start of a new trend

Galaxy A13 5G 50MP camera might be the start of a new trend

A lot of attention is given to Samsung's high-end and more expensive smartphones, which isn't surprising since that is what the company's marketing machinery tries to push to consumers' consciousness anyway. There is, however, also a plethora of choices under Samsung's name that address different markets and consumers with different needs and, most importantly, budgets. These are often left by the wayside when it comes to mobile technology innovations, but it seems that Samsung will be giving its Galaxy A series some TLC, starting with a humble Galaxy A13 5G.

Galaxy S22+ specs leak almost reveals the entire confusing picture

Galaxy S22+ specs leak almost reveals the entire confusing picture

With no "normal" flagship scheduled for the rest of the year, Samsung fans might be looking forward to next year's Galaxy S22 for their next upgrade. Samsung has traditionally been offering three Galaxy S models every year, and next year won't be so different. What might be different, however, is how Samsung will spin the Galaxy S22 because, as far as recent leaks go, it seems to be taking one step forward and a few steps back, putting the line at risk for another disappointing year.

Pixel 6 Live Translate will combine Google’s best translation features

Pixel 6 Live Translate will combine Google’s best translation features

Although Google serves many users on many platforms, it often shows preferential treatment to Pixel phone owners. Some of those exclusive features eventually find their way to other Android phones, but the best of the best remains a highlight for Google's own phones. One such feature might be Live Translate that's going to be exclusive to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, pooling together some of Google's best work when it comes to AI-powered translation services.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 drop tests prove Samsung’s boast again

Galaxy Z Fold 3 drop tests prove Samsung’s boast again

It has been about a month since the Galaxy Z Fold 3 first landed in consumers' hands. The jury is already out, and Samsung's latest and greatest foldable has had mixed but mostly positive reviews. One aspect of the device that very few reviewers dare to test out is the device's durability, mostly because of the $1,800 price tag attached to it. Fortunately, there are a few that do take the plunge and try to confirm or refute Samsung's claims about the phone's durability.

After iPhone 13: The new tech coming in 2022, 2023, and 2024

Over the next few years, the iPhone will see some significant changes. This year's iPhone 13 didn't exactly make major waves when it came to upgrades VS last year's model lineup. According to high-level Apple product predictions released this week, the changes will come in the years 2022, 2023, and 2024 in the form of punch hole front-facing cameras, under-display Touch ID, and foldable smartphones from Apple.

OnePlus 9T not to be: Tradition changes now

OnePlus 9T not to be: Tradition changes now

OnePlus announced this week that they're changing the way they do business when it comes to regularly scheduled smartphone model release. Over the past couple of years, OnePlus has been moving away from the single-phone release setup, where one device would appear early on in the year, then another with a "T" in its name would appear later. It might've been a long time coming - especially given the origin of the letter "T".
