Galaxy Flex Note patent has an ingenious idea for storing the S Pen

Galaxy Flex Note patent has an ingenious idea for storing the S Pen

The Galaxy Z Fold 3's adoption of S Pen and Wacom technologies was widely praised, but its treatment of the stylus received the completely opposite feedback. Sold separately and without any home for it on the device, some regarded the S Pen as an optional afterthought rather than a selling feature. The balance between having a thin device and a comfortable stylus has always been a delicate dance, but a new Samsung patent plays around with the idea of a foldable device that does have room for the S Pen in a rather intriguing way.

Galaxy S21 FE production is reportedly off to a bad start

Galaxy S21 FE production is reportedly off to a bad start

Since fewer people will probably buy a Galaxy Z Fold 3 or Galaxy Z Flip 3 in lieu of the absence of a Galaxy Note 21 this year, Samsung is left with a rather large gap between Galaxy S series flagships in 2021 and 2022. That gap would have been partially filled by a Fan Edition, but that strategy might not pay off, at least based on how things are off to a rough start. Although not terribly late, the Galaxy S21 FE might have limited availability based on reported numbers coming from the production lines.

Honor could still be sanctioned if US agencies can actually agree on it

Honor could still be sanctioned if US agencies can actually agree on it

It isn't surprising to hear about Huawei's attempts to circumvent US sanctions that prevent it from buying products, technologies, and even software from former partners like Qualcomm and Google. For example, it ordered some 4G-only Snapdragon chips to bypass its ban from touching anything related to 5G. Some lawmakers and government officials in the US see its sale of Honor to a consortium as one of those evasive maneuvers and want the former subsidiary to be put on the same Entity List. Unfortunately for them, their own colleagues have placed the decision in a deadlock.

Pixel 6 Pro hands-on videos reveal interesting details

Now that Apple has unveiled its smartphone champion for the next 12 months, Android loyals are probably preparing for what could be the most notable Google phone in recent years. Based on leaks and rumors, the Pixel 6, particularly the Pixel 6 Pro, will be breaking away from the Pixel trend in the past five years since the first Google-designed phone. That's pretty obvious in looks, but there are also a lot of other changes both inside and outside that are now being revealed or confirmed by what may be the first hands-on video of the Pixel 6 Pro.

Pokemon GO Furfrou must-know facts: Forms, Shiny, Evolution, Moves

Furfrou is not the most common Pokemon in the world. It's the most perfect fashionable Pokemon for Fashion Week 2021, but it's not out there this week in numbers as common as a Community Day Pokemon. Instead, it's available as a once-per-day Photobomb (try to take a photo of a Pokemon in the game and see), where it'll spawn in the wild as a result. It's also the encounter reward in a couple of quests. Now, let's talk about forms.

Pixel 6 Live Translate might finally live up to Google Goggles’ promise

An early peek at the inner workings of the Google Pixel 6 appeared to show the newest version of the device's Live Translate feature.

It's entirely possible this feature will also appear on a variety of smartphones running Android 12 in the near future.

Netflix free tier in Kenya could be the start of something new

Netflix free tier in Kenya could be the start of something new

Netflix is one of if not the biggest video streaming services in the market, but even it is finding that market to be stagnating and getting too crowded. A lot of people in the markets it serves already have a Netflix subscription, and the markets it doesn't serve aren't quick to embrace its business model. In an attempt to woo new users in markets like Kenya, Netflix is doing something that might have been unthinkable years ago, offering a serving of its video content completely free of charge.

Nokia Tablet might be coming next month

Nokia Tablet might be coming next month

Nokia might have been the king of the mobile market in the past, but its brand never saw the same success or ubiquity in the tablet market. All throughout its tumultuous recent history, there have only been four tablets under its name, including the pocket-size Nokia N800 and N810 "Internet Tablets." That unlucky history doesn't seem to have fazed HMD Global, which has licensed the name for mobile devices. In its coming October event, it might be unveiling not just a new mid-range phone but its first Nokia-branded tablet as well.

CATAN: World Explorers from Pokemon GO developer is shutting down

Although Pokemon GO continues to be a popular game and money-maker for Niantic Labs, the mobile AR game developer hasn't had much success with its other attempts are recreating that magic. The latest evidence of its failure is CATAN: World Explorers, the mobile AR recreation of a highly popular board game. While the heavyweight brand should have garnered interest and resources, it seems that it just wasn't meant to be, as the game is shutting down soon after spending a year in early access.

Galaxy A13 5G 50MP camera might be the start of a new trend

A lot of attention is given to Samsung's high-end and more expensive smartphones, which isn't surprising since that is what the company's marketing machinery tries to push to consumers' consciousness anyway. There is, however, also a plethora of choices under Samsung's name that address different markets and consumers with different needs and, most importantly, budgets. These are often left by the wayside when it comes to mobile technology innovations, but it seems that Samsung will be giving its Galaxy A series some TLC, starting with a humble Galaxy A13 5G.
