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.

Galaxy S22 leak tips the best of both worlds – so long as it’s flat

Galaxy S22 leak tips the best of both worlds – so long as it’s flat

Samsung's delivery of foldable displays to the industry changed the way their mobile device lineup does business. Now, courtesy of a collection of devices that are capable of using the S Pen, there's really no need to have a single device whose most major feature is said stylus. Instead, starting with the Samsung Galaxy S22, the Galaxy Note dies, and the S Pen lives again.

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.

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.

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.

Galaxy S22 leak says smaller display, sleeker body

Galaxy S22 leak says smaller display, sleeker body

The Samsung Galaxy S22 leaks are in full tilt this fall as we've finally jumped over the leak mountain that was the iPhone 13. The Samsung Galaxy S22 family of devices is tipped this week to appear with a newly invigorated effort to cut down edges and ramp up the glory of the all-important front-facing display. With foldable devices attempting to steal the spotlight, the Galaxy S22 needs to go all-out to keep the flat display in fashion.

Galaxy S22’s small battery might match its small size

Galaxy S22’s small battery might match its small size

Although Apple adopted a four-phone strategy last year with the iPhone 12 series, Samsung didn't exactly follow suit. The Galaxy S21 offered only three models, eschewing what would have been the equivalent of an iPhone 12 mini. Despite being notorious for copying Apple, it would seem that Samsung will stick to its guns with the Galaxy S22 next year. One difference, however, is that it might actually offer a "mini" base model, which would probably explain its disappointing rumored battery size.

Galaxy Buds 2 iFixit teardown hints at a disappointing trend

Galaxy Buds 2 iFixit teardown hints at a disappointing trend

It has pretty much become expected that almost all smartphones, especially high-end ones, aren't built to be easy to repair. They might be designed to survive a few accidents, but repairing them with less than trained hands has never been a priority. That practice has trickled down into the smallest of accessories that are often too easy to lose or too easy to break. Samsung's new Galaxy Buds 2 is no exception and may even point to less favorable changes in the future, at least as far as iFixit is concerned.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021 leaked with flatness

Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021 leaked with flatness

Today the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 2021 leaked in imagery that indicate the party isn't over. The most recent several rounds of Samsung Galaxy Tab devices have been top-quality Android tablets when the rest of the industry has lagged behind. With the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8, likely ready for release in 2021, we have another 10.4-inch low-cost, high value monster from the smart device maker.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is starting to sound too good to be true

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra is starting to sound too good to be true

We can never take leaks and rumors at face value, even if they come from reliable sources. After all, the Apple Watch Series 7's expected flatter design turned out to be a complete dud, despite famous tipsters supporting the theory. With that in mind, the leaks about the Galaxy S22 series aren't too reassuring. It seems almost ironic, then, that the Galaxy Tab S8 is starting to look more interesting, especially the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra that is shaping up to be somewhat of a laptop replacement, at least as far as the rumors go.
