Samsung desperately wants to be the maker of the world's first foldable tablet but only if it can find a compelling reason for consumers to want one.
On numerous occasions over the past three years, the company's mobile CEO, DJ Koh, has stated his foldable phone goal, but that title could be snatched by Chinese rival Huawei if Samsung doesn't come up with the goods soon.
After an unprecedented level of leaks, Google’s New York event was light on surprises. The new Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are exactly what we expected to see. Few phones have suffered so much criticism in the build up to an unveiling. The deep notch gouged out of the top of the Pixel 3 XL’s OLED screen seems to be universally reviled, and our Pixel 3 XL hands-on did not change our mind – it’s ugly.
While we’re glad the Pixel 3 doesn’t have a matching notch, the big bezels definitely make it look dated, but there’s more to a phone than its looks. We’re often told that it’s what’s on the inside that counts and Google’s groundbreaking artificial intelligence (A.I.) advancements remind us of that. The dull design definitely disappoints, but we’re genuinely excited about what the A.I. smarts inside can do for us.
GOOGLE is about to unveil a string of new products and its new smartphone range promises to be its best yet.
In the past few years, the search engine giant has moved into the hardware space with gusto in an attempt to compete with the likes of Apple and Amazon with gadgets including smartphones and home speakers.
Last month Apple held its annual flagship product launch, unveiling three new iPhones and a couple weeks later Amazon followed suit by demonstrating a slew of new Alexa-powered devices including a microwave and a clock.
This week it's Google's turn.
So far there's been plenty of leaks about the event which is set to take place early Wednesday morning AEST. Here's what to expect.
The $1,000 launch price of the Samsung Galaxy Note9 can seem a bit steep, but you don’t have to pay sticker price. Not even close – starting today and until November 3 you can grab a brand new Note9 straight from Samsung for $400 and a trade-in phone.
