After having an early run elsewhere around the world, Samsung is preparing to inundate the U.S. market with a half-dozen lower-cost smartphones this year — including the company's first cut-price 5G phones. Two of those phones are launching tomorrow: the Galaxy A01 and the Galaxy A51.
First was T-Mobile in 2018. Then came Sprint last year. Now, Verizon is carrying its first OnePlus phone for sale. The OnePlus 8 5G UW — yep, that's the name Big Red's going with — will be available to buy from April 29 for $800. But unlike any other model of OnePlus 8, this one will be the only one to support millimeter wave 5G.
Samsung, arguably the manufacturer best suited to making Android tablets, is doubling down on them. Last week, we heard about a welterweight follow-up to the Galaxy Tab S6, pictured above. This time, there's intel of not one, but two new Galaxy Tab S7 (or, if branding follows the flagship phones, Tab S20) models this year.
You may not be thinking about Fitbit in a time of pandemic and lockdown, but the fact is that you do have the opportunity to jog around the block or hit the park — socially distanced from others, of course. In a way, the debut of the Fitbit Charge 4 comes at a perfect time for the company looking to gain some spotlight in the fitness tracker market as it continues to await the closure of Google's acquisition.
We're only two weeks away from the unveiling of the latest OnePus flagship phones, which means the company's marketing machine is full flow in order to stoke anticipation for the launch. In a post on the official OnePlus forum today, some key specs have been confirmed including the Snapdragon 865 processor from Qualcomm, UFS 3.0 storage, and LPDDR5 RAM.
The OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Lite have been on our radar for months, but questions are still hanging about further specifics, including the dreaded price range. While macroeconomic factors are wreaking havoc with supply chains, some new intelligence out of India could illuminate exactly what parts we're dealing with and how much we may expect to pay for either phone.
Xiaomi's mobile gaming spin-off, Black Shark, has come out with a pair of new phones — the third generation in the series and the first to sport 5G radios. It's also come out with some gaming earbuds as well. And if you're outside of China and want any of them for yourself, you'll be able to acquire a Black Shark 3, Black Shark 3 Pro, and/or the Ophidian Bluetooth earbuds soon enough.
One of the most sensational smartphones to come out of 2018 is supposedly getting a sequel this year. In December, Oppo announced its plans to launch the Find X2 this year with the Snapdragon 865, a Sony all-pixel PDAF camera, and a pretty good display. How good of a display? A company executive has tweeted out some prime details.
Now that we’re nearing the end of 2019, Samsung appears all set with its 2020 Galaxy A lineup that bridges the gap between flagships and budget handsets. The South Korean tech titan today introduced a pair of smartphones under the series — the Galaxy A71 and the Galaxy A51. The two phones pick some of the most identifiable features from their more premium siblings in the Galaxy S and Note series, while still maintaining their relatively affordable prices.
If the Galaxy Buds weren't compelling enough as a pair of true wireless earbuds for you, you may want to stick around and see what Samsung's cooking up next. The rumor beat for the upcoming Galaxy Buds+ is generating some impressive anticipation already. But if you want to know exactly how the Buds will stack up with the Buds+, Evan Blass has a leak for you.
