Get a free Echo Dot and Philips Hue smart bulb when buying an Echo Show for $180 (save $115)

When I set up my smart home infrastructure a couple of years ago, I had to break the bank to buy a smart speaker, connected bulbs, and intelligent plugs. Even though we often share deals that let you save a few bucks on such products, this one is particularly interesting. Indeed, Amazon is throwing in a free Echo Dot speaker and a Philipe Hue bulb with the purchase of an Echo Show smart display. The three products together would cost $295 if purchased separately, but with this offer, you'll only have to pay the Echo Show's price for the whole bundle.

Huawei cautiously delays folding Mate X in view of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold debacle

Despite being quite a promising device, the Samsung Galaxy Fold's launch didn't go as smoothly as expected. Indeed, several review units failed right before its official release, which led the brand to delay the handset's commercialization to improve its design. Some saw this as an opportunity for Huawei to get ahead of the competition with its Mate X. Nevertheless, the manufacturer faced its own share of issues after it was added to the US Entity list, as it may have to stop using Android on its devices. On top of these woes, the company's first foldable device may not be as reliable as expected, as its launch is being delayed to September, with Huawei claiming they "don’t want to launch a product to destroy [their] reputation."

As expected, Samsung is full of announcements today, including a new, slimmer successor to 2017's Gear Fit2 Pro that looks to be a direct competitor to the Fitbit Alta HR/Charge 3.
