Galaxy Z Flip will be an expensive Samsung Valentine’s gift

Galaxy Z Flip will be an expensive Samsung Valentine’s gift

With January coming to a close, Samsung fans are now counting the days before the next Galaxy is Unpacked. Actually, there will be two new Galaxies and it's really no secret what they are. That said, those eagerly waiting to get their hands on Samsung's next foldable will have to wait for a few days more. That does give them time to make sure their finances are in order because it won't come cheap.

First Galaxy Note 20 leak gives hope for the S Pen

First Galaxy Note 20 leak gives hope for the S Pen

Back in the days, Samsung's Galaxy Note line was defined by two things, a large screen that Apple once ridiculed and the S Pen stylus. These days, large screens are the new normal and, for a time, it seemed as if Samsung was contemplating axing the S Pen as well. That would have practically removed any reason for the Galaxy Note to continue existing, which was indeed the rumor in the months leading up to the Galaxy Note 10's launch. Fortunately for the phablet's fans, that didn't happen and if this fresh new leak is accurate, it still won't happen this year.

Samsung Odyssey VR headset patent sounds more powerful, looks alien

Some people get bug-eyed after experiencing virtual reality for the first time. If Samsung's next head-mounted display is anything like this patent, it will make them literally bug-eyed. A patent for what seems to be a successor to the company's HMD Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality headset includes colored renders that leave little to the imagination and it will have you looking like The Fly once you don the eerie-looking headset.

Galaxy S9 One UI 2.0 Android 10 update is being delayed for some reason

Galaxy S9 One UI 2.0 Android 10 update is being delayed for some reason

Samsung has been uncharacteristically quick with updating at least its most recent phones to One UI 2.0, which means those phones are also getting Android 10. It wasn't without hiccups during the beta testing phase but, fortunately, nothing adverse seems to have occurred for those who already updated to the latest version. Unfortunately, it seems that some will have to a little bit later as the Galaxy S9's update gets pushed back by two months.

This next iPhone 5G magical feature is “nearby” Android and Samsung, too

This next iPhone 5G magical feature is “nearby” Android and Samsung, too

Several companies are developing a feature that, depending on who you ask, requires 5G connectivity for their next phone. This feature takes a few different forms but is, at its core, all about hyperlocal sharing. For Apple it's their newest version of AirDrop, using Ultra Wideband tech with (for example) the iPhone 11 and the U1 chip - they call it "spatial awareness" and it's in the process of being developed (in a slightly different iteration or two) by Samsung for Galaxy phones and by Google for Android phones, too.

Sprint $50 Samsung phone screen fix seems to be a true loss leader

Sprint $50 Samsung phone screen fix seems to be a true loss leader

The situation at Sprint at the moment is a bit of a rarity in the smartphone universe - a deal with the potential for no drawback. Sprint has a Samsung screen-fixing program right now in which one phone can have its display fixed for $50 USD. Assuming you've got a broken phone screen and your phone is one of the limited models Sprint's got listed, this would appear to be a genuine no-strings-attached deal... which is honestly a shock.

Galaxy Z Flip display may have two disappointing details

Galaxy Z Flip display may have two disappointing details

The Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung's first foldable phone to come in a clamshell form, is turning out to be a mixed bag so far. It's going to be a lot cheaper than the first Galaxy Fold but it will still be beyond the reach of most consumers. It will use an ultra-thin glass that should be more durable than the plastic polyimide material on its predecessor but, it turns out, it still won't be able to address two fortunately minor gripes that afflict this new breed of devices.

Samsung Quick Share AirDrop competitor has a weird quirk

Samsung Quick Share AirDrop competitor has a weird quirk

Android has been around for a long time and yet it still seems to have trouble easily and quickly sharing files with one another. Next to iMessage, Apple's AirDrop is one of the most coveted iOS features that Android users want on their phones. Now it seems that multiple Android partners, including Android maker Google itself, are working on their own perhaps incompatible solutions. Unsurprisingly, Samsung apparently has one as well and it might have an odd feature that no other has so far.

Galaxy S20 5G release date and price list leaked en masse

Galaxy Z Flip camera leak shouldn’t be a surprise

Galaxy Z Flip camera leak shouldn’t be a surprise

On February 11, Samsung is expected to confuse consumers by announcing two equally tempting premium phones. On the one hand, you have the Galaxy S20, specifically the Galaxy S20 Ultra, that bears the best of the best that Samsung can offer. On the other hand, you have the Galaxy Z Flip, believed to be a more affordable foldable option. The latter, however, is probably going to be possible only by cutting a few corners so the latest word on the phone's camera, albeit disappointing, shouldn't come as a shock either.
