Galaxy S21 FE price leak suggests Samsung’s plan worked

Galaxy S21 FE price leak suggests Samsung’s plan worked

While Samsung is projecting positive numbers for the sales of its foldable phones, it has had a rather rough year when you consider the rest of its mobile lineup. The Galaxy S20 series didn't rise up to expectations, and the absence of a Galaxy Note this year was strongly felt and heavily discussed. Even the Galaxy S21 FE, which should have launched last October, is becoming a sort of albatross around Samsung's next. It will still arrive next month against all odds, but the odds of its success look slimmer than ever.

Galaxy A series could get a much-needed durability upgrade in 2022

Galaxy A series could get a much-needed durability upgrade in 2022

Though Samsung wants people to buy its pricey Galaxy S and foldable Galaxy Z flagship smartphones, not everyone can afford to do so. The popularity of its Galaxy A series handsets over the past year or so has proven there's a large market for its mid-range line, especially for models with 5G capabilities (via Canalys). With that in mind, it's no surprise Samsung will give its Galaxy A phones some big upgrades in 2022, at least according to a new report citing industry insiders.

Samsung Galaxy A13 5G gives AT&T a $250 5G option worth considering

Samsung has revealed its most affordable 5G phone in the US, with the Galaxy A13 5G carrying a mere $249.99 price tag. Headed to AT&T at the end of the week, the A13 pairs a trio of rear cameras with a sizable display, and despite the low price still uses a 90 Hz adaptive refresh rate panel.

Galaxy S22 camera leak doesn’t sound too bad

Galaxy S22 camera leak doesn’t sound too bad

Based on leaks and rumors, we have just two months or so before Samsung reveals its opening salvo for 2022. Based on those same rumors, however, the base Galaxy S22 model and its Plus counterpart might disappoint in many aspects. There are some downgrades and some that might remain the same, though there are definitely expected upgrades, at least as far as the processor goes. Not all things might be that bad, though, and the newest information gives some hope that the phones' cameras won't be as bad as it sounds.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 cameras found an ally in DxOMark

Galaxy Z Fold 3 cameras found an ally in DxOMark

While the Galaxy Z Fold 3 had notable upgrades, like the S Pen support, it was also heavily criticized for its disappointing cameras. As if the 4MP under-display camera weren't bad enough, the main cameras on the phone's back haven't actually moved forward since the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Compared to the Galaxy S21 Ultra from earlier this year, that sounds like a downgrade, but at least DxOMark thinks it's not a complete loss, depending on which camera functions are important to you.

Galaxy Note production has reportedly ended

Galaxy Note production has reportedly ended

As if Galaxy Note fans needed more reason to be glum this year, more news just dropped over the weekend that probably puts what might be the final name in the fan favorite's coffin. There have been numerous reports of the Galaxy Note line's demise, especially since it didn't make an appearance this year. With the Galaxy S22 Ultra expected to pretty much stand in its place, this report about Samsung ceasing the production of Galaxy Note phones is both expected yet also disheartening for Galaxy Note believers.

Wear OS gains ground thanks to Samsung, but Google needs to keep up

Wear OS gains ground thanks to Samsung, but Google needs to keep up

Although Wear OS definitely has the upper hand when it comes to diversity, the Apple Watch irrefutably has the numbers in terms of market share. Google's wearable platform was, in fact, a very distant second as far smartwatch operating systems go, but that has suddenly changed in the last few months. Some might not like it, but it's actually mostly thanks to Samsung. But things might not remain that way unless Google picks up the slack and makes a better commitment to its own smartwatch ecosystem.

Qualcomm Windows on ARM exclusivity is stunting its growth

Qualcomm Windows on ARM exclusivity is stunting its growth

Windows has actually been on ARM-based devices for quite a few years now, but it isn't at all surprising that there are so few of them. Despite hardware being adequate, the Windows on ARM experience has been generally regarded to be less than stellar, with many of the complaints focused around performance, battery life, and support for x86/x64 Windows software. Some have put the blame on Qualcomm's chipsets, but it seems that there is no escaping that because, apparently, Microsoft and Qualcomm have made a deal that makes Windows on ARM a Snapdragon exclusive, at least for the next two or so years.

Galaxy Z Fold 4 might still sorely disappoint Galaxy Note fans

Galaxy Z Fold 4 might still sorely disappoint Galaxy Note fans

Compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 2, this year's Galaxy Z Fold 3 may have made a big leap forward in more ways than one. Some, of course, will consider the disappointing under-display camera (which Samsung calls a UPS or under-panel sensor) a step back instead. In addition to improved durability, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is also the first foldable phone in the world to support an active stylus like the S Pen (no, the Microsoft Surface Duo doesn't technically count as a foldable). Unfortunately, it was one step short of becoming a true Galaxy Note replacement, and it seems that its successor next year won't do any better.

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra notch might vindicate Apple’s new trend

Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra notch might vindicate Apple’s new trend

There was a point in time when it seemed that notches would be the future of smartphones, especially since Apple seems to be adamant about sticking to it since the iPhone X in 2017. And then device makers started switching to punch-hole cutouts, and some even started hiding front cameras underneath screens. It seems, however, that the notch trend might be arriving on large screens, like Apple's new MacBook Pros, and Samsung might try to make it a thing on tablets with the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra.

Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 camera rumors might cause worries

Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 camera rumors might cause worries

The Galaxy Z Fold 3, for the most part, is Samsung's best stab at the foldable market, while the more affordable Galaxy Z Flip 3 is proving to be its most successful. There are, of course, some well-noted flaws, especially when it comes to the Galaxy Z Fold 3's cameras. Samsung was recently reported to have ambitious goals for next year's foldables, enough to produce almost 10 million units combined. Those ambitions, however, might be questionable if Samsung decides to push through with rumored plans to go all-in on its under-display cameras.
