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.
While we were disappointed that Samsung didn't want to show off any hardware at its MWC non-event, it's safe to guess that we'll soon be seeing more leaks of its upcoming Galaxy Watch4, now confirmed to be the first device to run the next-gen Wear OS developed by both Samsung and Google. Patience pays off today, as a bevy of what appear to be retail renders of the Galaxy Watch4 Classic have come out.
We're quickly approaching Samsung's usual late-summer slot for announcing new flagship devices, but this year, it's the Galaxy Z-series we're expecting to see instead of a Note refresh. Both the Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 passed through the FCC last week, revealing stylus support for the latter. However, if you've been waiting to see what the next clamshell foldable from Samsung would look like, new renders have leaked that show the phone from all angles.
OnePlus recently lifted the veil on its latest Nord smartphones, but missing amongst those was the previously-leaked Nord 2. The company accidentally confirmed the phone's existence a few weeks ago but we didn't hear anything more about it as the Nord CE 5G and N200 were launched. The true successor to the original Nord is still on its way, though, and today we're getting our first picture of what it's going to look like.
Forget tracking the trickle of intel from obscure sources: Lenovo has outed its Smart Clock 2 on its website without an official announcement. With a new clock comes a new design that will facilitate a new accessory that will allow you wirelessly charge other devices.
