Post-Announcement Updates


We expect to see a few devices at the Unpacked event, including the long-awaited Galaxy Note 5 and the surprising new Galaxy S6 Edge Plus. Based on the rumors, both phones appear to be extremely powerful and high-spec, with Exynos processors, 4GB RAM, 5.7-inch Quad HD screens, and sharper cameras. The two phones will likely sport a design language that’s similar to the gorgeous Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge that Samsung released at Mobile World Congress in March.

Some rumors hint at a possible tablet launch, too, though we haven’t heard much on that front. Some even posit that Samsung’s highly anticipated round Gear A smartwatch could debut at the event. Only time will tell, but Samsung could always pack a few huge surprises into its event, so stay tuned to Digital Trends for all the news.

Samsung may be getting ready to launch a new AirTag rival this year
Galaxy SmartTag

Samsung is not the first brand that comes to mind when you are out shopping for an object tracker. That kind of consumer trust and appeal is currently commanded by Tile, which kickstarted the trend, and Apple's popular AirTag. However, Samsung wants to wiggle its way into that space with yet another object tracker that's destined to arrive soon.

Citing unnamed sources, SamMobile reports that Samsung is planning a refresh of its Galaxy Smart Tag portfolio. And if all things go according to plan, the second-gen object tracker from Samsung will hit the shelves in the third quarter of 2023 — possibly around the same time frame as the launch of Samsung’s upcoming foldable phones.

The one thing the iPhone 14, Galaxy S23, and Pixel 7 all get wrong

At Mobile World Congress (MWC) this year, new smartphones broke cover as one would expect. I won't bore you with all the details; Digital Trends' Joe Maring and Jacob Roach wrote an excellent roundup of all the best MWC 2023 announcements already.

One key quality-of-life-improving feature we picked up on as a theme was charging speed. Apple, Samsung, and Google, the mainstream phone brands by coverage (even if not all by sales), stick to a fast-charging average speed of just over an hour — even with the latest iPhone 14, Galaxy S23, and Pixel 7. By comparison, a phone from Xiaomi, Oppo, or OnePlus can get you moving in 30 minutes or even less. It's time to demand more from our phones.
Fast charging exists — just not for you

This news is according to Korean tipster SuperRoader. It is said that the next Pro smartwatch will bring back a physical rotating bezel to interact with the software. Further, the Galaxy Watch 6 Pro will also retain the focus on offering at least two-day battery life.
