Galaxy Z Fold 3 might come with a new but different S Pen

A foldable phone is already an admittedly impressive milestone for Samsung and the mobile market in general but the actual vision for such devices doesn't stop there. Although not exactly essential to the concept of a foldable device, the use of a stylus on what looks like a digital book or notebook has almost become expected, especially if the Galaxy Z Fold is meant to replace the Galaxy Note line. That may finally happen next year but it will require a rather big change in Samsung's S Pen technology.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+ Review : Best Android slate to date

Microsoft Surface Duo images show potential launch packages and price

In the images leaked today, the Microsoft Surface Duo was shown from several angles along with likely accessories and/or in-box peripherals. The Microsoft Surface Duo device is Microsoft's next big product running Android. It folds up like a notebook, but where a keyboard and touchpad would normally be, this machine has a second display.

Galaxy Note 20 is a missed opportunity

Galaxy Note 20 is a missed opportunity

Samsung just dumped a number of new mobile products this week, all of them premium, which you can easily tell by their price tag. That Galaxy Note 20 Ultra alone carries some of the best specs you'll see in the smartphone market, along with one of the highest prices as well. There is probably no doubt that these features, on their own, will deliver as advertised, perhaps save for the still questionable performance of Samsung's camera systems, but smartphones and their specs cannot and do not exist in isolation. For all the high-end and exceptional features its boasts of, the Galaxy Note 20 and especially the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra might come off as a bit tone-deaf to the world they've been born into.

LG Velvet advertises active stylus support on Galaxy Note 20 debut

LG Velvet advertises active stylus support on Galaxy Note 20 debut

Samsung has traditionally had the monopoly of phones with active styluses, though Huawei at one point was able to launch one that was compatible with the other kind of battery-powered Wacom-enabled pens that Samsung's Galaxy Note phones didn't use. LG does have its only line of stylus-toting devices but those are pretty much just thin counterparts of regular passive styluses you can easily buy on the cheap. The mid-range LG Velvet, however, is different and LG is making sure the public knows about its less advertised powers and it's not really being subtle about pitting it against the more expensive Galaxy Note 20.

Galaxy Note 20 Ultra leak: “Real Feel” S Pen, xCloud integration

With just two weeks left before the grand reveal, we've more or less heard everything that can be said about the Galaxy Note 20, especially the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Apparently, that's not entirely the case and there's still enough room for some small details to complete the whole picture. Fortunately, one such leak is providing those pieces, revealing a partnership between Samsung and Microsoft that is growing beyond simple pre-installed apps.

iPad Mini and bigger iPad tipped with faster chargers

iPad Mini and bigger iPad tipped with faster chargers

New versions of the longest lasting tablet brand in the world are rumored to appear in stores in the near future. As noted by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple's likely set to release a new 10.8-inch iPad in the second half of the year 2020. That'd be anywhere from June to December - and more likely earlier than later. It's not yet known if this will be an "iPad Air" model or not. It's possible this would be a replacement for the current 10.2-inch iPad (no Air, Mini, or Pro).

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 images tip giant screen, single speaker

Today a set of images leaked details for the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, a device with a nearly full-frontal coverage display and a large camera array at the back. The back side of this device is quite simple - a rectangle in the uper left-hand corner with an array of high-powered lenses and a giant LED flash. The front appears to roll with a giant display and a single circular cut-out in the center of the device's forehead.

Galaxy Note 20 “flat” model may be best value yet

Galaxy Note 20 “flat” model may be best value yet

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 will likely bring fans back to a time when the original Samsung Galaxy Note Edge was first released. Back then, it was the Galaxy Note line that first brought about the "Infinity Display" revolution for Samsung. Back then, the "Edge" only rolled down the right side of the phone. Now, it would seem, Samsung's ready to release two more Note devices, one with an Infinity (curved) display panel, and another without.

Galaxy Note 20 leak says Samsung’s back to fan-favorites

Galaxy Note 20 leak says Samsung’s back to fan-favorites

The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 was tipped today to be coming with a flat display. That might not seem like a big deal to you if you've not been using Galaxy Note devices for the past half-decade or more - especially if you've never tried to use a stylus on a display with curved edges. But if you have used a Galaxy Note with what they call an "Infinity Display" with curved edges, you might well know how annoying it can be to keep... falling off the edges.

LG V60 ThinQ 5G and its Dual Screen apparently work with Active Styluses

LG V60 ThinQ 5G and its Dual Screen apparently work with Active Styluses

When it comes to phones with styluses, Samsung's Galaxy Note is pretty much the only serious game in town. Yes, there are some that hide a stylus inside, like LG's Stylo/Stylus line, but these are pretty much just glorified sticks that are not exactly that different from the cheap ones you can buy with rubber or plastic tips. There have been a few random surprises, like the Moto Z4 last year. It turns out, LG might have a hidden surprise as well waiting for those who buy into its V60 ThinQ 5G and its Dual Screen promise.
