Galaxy Note 21 cancellation rumors rise again

Galaxy Note 21 cancellation rumors rise again

There are always a number of rumors about Samsung products that refused to die. Most of those, like under-display cameras, revolve around features to be added or products to be launched. One undying rumor, however, is all about the death of one rather popular product. For years, Samsung has been believed to be retiring the Galaxy Note or at least the S Pen. We know that the latter is far from coming true yet but the launch of the Galaxy S21 Ultra has provided fodder once more to talk about the Galaxy Note 21's absence this year.

iOS 15 might finally drop iPhone 6s, iPhone SE (2016)

Apple is known and highly-praised for its commitment to support years-old smartphones, tablets, and computers, something that, unfortunately, hasn't caught on in the Android world. Even Apple, however, sometimes has to eventually cut off some older devices, though still not as fast or as often as even Google. Soon, that culling period might be happening again this year with the release of iOS 15 which may no longer support devices that are more than five years old by the time it rolls out.

Galaxy A82 5G might bring back the flipping slide-out camera

Galaxy A82 5G might bring back the flipping slide-out camera

It almost feels like a distant dream or nightmare, depending on where you stand, but it wasn't really too long ago when smartphone makers played around with designs with a singular purpose in mind, banishing the inescapable top bezel. While most have now embraced the punch-hole cutout, there was a time when phones sported eccentric mechanisms like popup cameras and sliding displays. Samsung wasn't exactly immune to that trend and it might be making bringing back the past with the Galaxy A82 5G.

Google Duo on uncertified Android devices might also stop working

Google Duo on uncertified Android devices might also stop working

Android being open source software allows it to be installed on devices and used in cases that Google may have never imagined or allowed. Those include some set-top boxes, desktops, laptops, watches, single-board computers or SBCs, and everything in between. Google, however, does have a system in place that keeps Android from spiraling out of its control completely. One such system involves keeping Google apps out of these "uncertified" devices, like what it will be doing with Google Messages and, soon, Google Duo.

Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone leak points to an innie design

Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone leak points to an innie design

There are dire predictions for the future of Huawei's mobile business this year. From restricted access to needed resources and components to the sale of its Honor brand, analysts predict that Huawei's smartphone production will nosedive this year. That makes it sound like an inopportune time for an expensive experiment but Huawei might have no qualms about launching the foldable Mate X2 next month that backtracks on the design the company insisted was the better one.

Galaxy S10 One UI 3.0 Android 11 update pulled due to bugs

Samsung has been making good on its commitment to roll out major Android upgrades faster, and while it's still not as fast as most would wish, it's still a lot better than Samsung's old ways. That said, there would inevitably be some bumps along the way and, unfortunately, it seems that Galaxy S10 owners had the bad luck of running into them. No sooner had Samsung released Android 11 for these phones did users run into numerous and seemingly unrelated problems, forcing the company to put a halt to the rollout.

iPad Mini 6 leak sounds almost too good to be true

While Apple continues to push the iPads as the next generation of computers, that rhetoric really only applies to its iPad Pro line. The lines between its various iPads, however, have started to blur, especially with the addition of Apple Pencil support all the way down to the bottom. The iPad Mini, however, still remains Apple's simplest and most affordable entry point, making these details about the alleged iPad Mini 6 sound more like a wishlist.
