Samsung's been cultivating a reputation as a reliable alternative in the space of premium true wireless earbuds. So perhaps it's not surprising that someone was so desperate for details in its next headphone iteration that they datamined an unreleased version of the official Samsung accessory support app. And thus was any surprise for the forthcoming Galaxy Buds2 mercilessly spoiled, just the way we like it.
In the admittedly limited scope of high-end noise-canceling cans, Sony and Bose are locked in a knock-down, drag-out fight. The consensus seems to be that Sony's had a slight edge over the last few years, but Bose is eager to come back. Today we get to see its next-gen Quiet Comfort design, courtesy of the FCC.
The future of Android's smartwatch platform might very well hinge on the success or failure of the Galaxy Watch4, the first known model to use the new Samsung-infused version of Wear OS. So it's no surprise that fans of both Wear and Samsung's watch hardware are eager for any glimpse of the new gadgets. The latest one comes courtesy of mega-retailer Amazon, which posted surprisingly candid shots of the upcoming watches on its Canadian site.
Google's upcoming Pixel 6 looks like a return to form for the company, based on current leaks. In fact, we've seen quite a bit when it comes to the new phone, both internally and externally, and it looks like it should be the first "true" flagship from the company for two years — or longer, depending on how you felt about the Pixel 4. Everything's subject to change as we learn more, but here's everything we know about the Pixel 6 so far.
The part of my brain that never progressed past the age of seven knows that two things are cool: fighter jets and Sonic the Hedgehog. The latter has been through some rough times since 1994, but supersonic airplanes remain perennially awesome. So when I saw "Galaxy F22," I had a fleeting notion that maybe Samsung had made a tiny fighter jet, or perhaps just a phone that was themed after a fighter jet. Like it had exhaust port decals around the speakers or something.
Nope, it's just a dumb phone. It doesn't have jet engines, it doesn't shoot missiles, it doesn't even fly, unless you throw it like a frisbee.
The Android tablet market is something of a wasteland. Samsung puts a lot of effort into making really good tablets, Amazon puts a lot of money into making, um, a lot of tablets, and everyone else is an also-ran. Can OnePlus shake up the market for tablets the way it has for Android flagship phones? It might just take a stab at it soon.
Keeping track of your health and fitness is a whole lot more manageable these days. Thanks to phones and smartwatches, tracking your heart rate, caloric intake, exercise goals, and other metrics is easier than ever. Google is testing out a new application focusing on medical records, in order to give users a better understanding of their health and well-being.
Last year, Samsung heard users' frustrations dismayed at the skyrocketing prices of flagship devices like the Galaxy S20. So it came out with its first "Fan Edition," the S20 FE, which was pretty much the same hardware with some strategic corners cut to make a dramatic decrease in the price. We've been hearing about this year's version of the phone since April, but today we get to see it in no less than four different flavors.
