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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Galaxy S21 might still get a February launch date

Rumors about Samsung scheduling the debut of its Galaxy S21 in January proved to be a rather surprising one but given the volume of unofficial confirmations, it was pretty much considered to be the case.
