Xiaomi overtakes Apple as third biggest smartphone vendor

Xiaomi overtakes Apple as third biggest smartphone vendor

With all that has happened this year, you'd think that the smartphone market has drastically changed over the past few months. Some might have expected Huawei to sink and Apple to reclaim its throne as the world's Top 2. The smartphone market as a whole did shrink a bit and Huawei did lose market share but not enough for Apple to recover. In fact, the Cupertino-based company sunk even lower, allowing Xioami to finally take over a coveted Number 3 spot.

Limited Galaxy Note 20 Mystic Red, Galaxy Z Flip 5G Mystic White arrive

There used to be a time when you could easily change your phone's back colors and design without having to slap on a case or peel off a sticker. These days, you're often stuck with what you first buy, especially with a foldable phone with more limited options for cases. The color choices for Samsung's latest flagships are, unfortunately, not that varied at all but, at least for a limited time, the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Z Flip 5G each get one new color for buyers to pick.

Galaxy Note 21 might still happen next year with a catch

Galaxy Note 21 might still happen next year with a catch

Reports of the Galaxy Note line's demise might be exaggerated or premature. Those reports were mostly based on rumors that the Galaxy S21, particularly the Galaxy S21 Ultra, would gain the one feature that sets the two products apart. A report from South Korean media does seem to confirm that Samsung has gotten the ball rolling to give the Galaxy S21 Ultra its own S Pen. At the same time, however, it also gives Galaxy Note fans one last hope, at least until next year.

Upcoming phones geared to rattle the entry-level market

Upcoming phones geared to rattle the entry-level market

Smartphones have become an integral part of our life – no doubt they sell like hotcakes and virtually every other week a new phone is released in the market. While smartphones can be crazy pricey on one end of the spectrum, the options for entry-level buyers are also quite broad. The segment is important for all major manufacturers and the prospects of gaining the trust of buyers who want the bare basics from their device are quite high.

Samsung NEON artificial humans could be on Galaxy phones soon

Samsung NEON artificial humans could be on Galaxy phones soon

AI and machine learning have become the buzzwords of today's tech world and news but, save for a few exceptions, people envision them as disembodied voices like Siri or even impersonal bits and bytes that silent work miracle behind computer screens. At CES 2020 earlier this year, Samsung and its subsidiary Star Labs showed off AI that was both relatable but also eerily too human. As if it wasn't enough to have them standing at arms' length on wall-mounted displays, it seems that Samsung is toying with the idea of bringing NEON to phones soon.

Samsung tri-fold phone, rollable tablet teased in official images

Samsung still needs to check off a few things from its list before its foldable phone could be truly considered complete but that isn't stopping it from cooking up other things. Of course, with a company as big as Samsung, it is often working on other things in the background, things that may never see the light of day. Often, we only get glimpses of them in patents but Samsung's display-making arm is more than happy to share its future visions.

Galaxy Z Flip 2 could get this important upgrade

Galaxy Z Flip 2 could get this important upgrade

To say that Samsung is obsessed with foldable phones wouldn't exactly be an understatement. Ever since it showed off the idea of a flexible display and a foldable device in 2013, it has never stopped working towards that goal, no matter how long it took or costly it became. Despite having launched at least four such devices, there is definitely still room for improvement and the next foldable phone will reportedly bring the clamshell form factor on the same level as the Galaxy Z Fold 2.

Samsung One UI 3.0 beta for Galaxy Note 10 ends, Galaxy S10 begins

Samsung One UI 3.0 beta for Galaxy Note 10 ends, Galaxy S10 begins

Android 11 was released to the public on September 8, 2020. In the old world order, it wouldn't be until January or February the following year at the earliest before Samsung Galaxy phone owners would even hear anything about the update from Samsung. In less than three months, however, Samsung has already rolled out betas for its One UI 3.0, based on Android 11, of course, to its most recent flagships. Granted, it's still in beta testing but things are seemingly on track for a stable release soon given how things are moving smoothly except for one specific case.

Galaxy A12, A02s bring massive batteries to entry-level market

When you're in the market for extremely affordable, wallet-friendly phones, your needs may be drastically different from those aiming for the higher end of the spectrum. Some just need a phone that can connect them to the Internet while others simply want a portable music and video player. Whatever the case may be, one thing they all have in common is the need for long battery life and that is exactly what Samsung is trying to deliver with its new Galaxy A12 and Galaxy A02s coming to select markets early next year.

Galaxy Z Flip 2 reportedly delayed, modest Galaxy S21 outlook

Galaxy Z Flip 2 reportedly delayed, modest Galaxy S21 outlook

Samsung hasn't had a stellar 2020 but, then again, nobody did, perhaps not even Apple. It has started to move things around to compensate for some losses incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its effects on the economy and businesses, which also included moving around its timetables. Its biggest and most drastic change is believed to be the Galaxy S21's early launch next year. It turns out, however, that it may be a solo debut as the Galaxy Z Flip 2 is now reportedly being delayed beyond the first quarter of 2021.

iPad Pro could switch to OLED screens in late 2021

The tablet market has seen consistently positive figures, mostly in thanks to Apple and the iPad Pro's rapid development pace. The company's prosumer tablet seems to undergo big changes every iteration, even when those changes aren't exactly visible to the naked eye. Case in point will be the iPad Pros coming next year which have already been rumored to be moving to mini-LED displays. That might be a short-lived change, however, as there are now reports that Apple will again switch display technologies before 2021 is over.
