Samsung’s new Fitbit killer just leaked, and it looks impressive

It has been more than three years since the release of the Samsung Galaxy Fit 2. That was so long ago that it suggests the product might never receive an update. However, a recent leak suggests otherwise.

A post on the Samsung UAE website has revealed information about a potential Galaxy Fit 3. Although the post was quickly removed, it is still accessible in cache form. If the details about this watch are correct, the next Galaxy Fit will represent a considerable update.

As you can see in the image above, the Galaxy Fit 3 resembles the shape of an Apple Watch, but it boasts some significant improvements. First, it offers an impressive 13 days of battery life between charges, compared to the Apple Watch Series 9, which only lasts 18 hours, and the Apple Watch Ultra 2, which promises up to 36 hours.

In addition, the Galaxy Fit 3 is expected to feature a 1.6-inch AMOLED display, measuring 40mm diagonally — that’s a significant upgrade from the previous model’s 1.1-inch display, which measured just 27.9mm. The new model is also expected to weigh 18.5 grams and come with an IP68 rating, making it resistant to dust and raindrops.

The new wearable device is expected to offer various health, wellness, and fitness tools to help users stay active and healthy. With features like step tracking, heart rate monitoring, and calorie counting, you should be able to easily keep track of your physical activity levels and make informed decisions about your health.

In addition to these health-focused features, the Galaxy Fit 3 is also expected to ship with over 100 watch faces, allowing users to customize the look of their wearable to suit their style. Emergency response tools are also reportedly included, providing a simple and easy way to request help in an emergency.

One of the most notable features of the device listed on the Samsung UAE website is its fall-detection capability. This feature uses sensors to detect when someone has fallen and automatically sends an alert to emergency services if the user does not respond within a certain time.

Finally, the Galaxy Fit 3 is also set to include a sleep coach feature that helps users improve their sleep habits by providing personalized recommendations based on their sleep patterns and habits. This is something we saw on the Galaxy Watch 6 last year.

It is uncertain when Samsung will announce and release the Galaxy Fit 3. Despite recently unveiling the Galaxy S24 smartphone series, Samsung did not use the same event to introduce a new smartwatch. This implies that the Galaxy Fit 3 may not be available anytime soon. However, the leak contains highly detailed information about the device, which suggests Samsung may surprise us by announcing the new wearable in just a few weeks.

It’s also worth mentioning that this leak comes shortly after Samsung teased the Galaxy Ring — its upcoming smart/health ring. Assuming it and the Galaxy Fit 3 are both released this year, 2024 is shaping up to be a big one for Samsung’s health efforts. If that’s the case, companies like Fitbit, Oura, and others should take note of what’s coming down the pipeline.

The Google Pixel Fold 2 just leaked. Here’s everything that’s new
Schematics of Google Pixel 2 according to leaks.

Google’s next foldable phone is going to be a screamer, and not solely for good reasons, if the latest leaks are to be believed. SmartPrix (via OnLeaks) has shared alleged renders depicting the Google Pixel Fold 2, and it looks like a mixed bag of regressive design and positive developments.
The biggest change compared to the first-gen Google Pixel Fold is a camera bump that ditches the stretched bar look on the current-gen Pixel smartphones. Instead, we now have a rectangular design with two rows of pill-shaped black outlines, hosting three camera lenses and a bunch of other sensors.
It’s a stark departure from the mainstream Pixel camera bar, and it revives a look that was last seen on the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4 series phones. Looks aside, the side placement also means the phone will keep wobbling if you place it on a flat surface. I’m not exactly a fan of this approach, to be honest.

Another notable change is the side profile. The curved edges of the Pixel Fold have been flattened, a look that will also appear on the Google Pixel 9 series phones, according to leaked renders.
But if you look closely and ignore the ugly camera hump shape, the Pixel Fold 2 looks identical to the OnePlus Open in its leathery black trim. The side rails, those curved bezels, and the front camera placement are all identical.
Even the ridge seems to have been lifted straight from the OnePlus Open, down to its polished metal aesthetics. It’s not a bad thing, as the OnePlus Open is one of the best-built phones I’ve ever used, and the form factor is an absolute joy to handle.
The most progressive change happens once the phone is opened. The thick bezels are gone, and what we see on the Pixel Fold 2 renders are uniformly thin bezels on all sides, a trend that we first noticed on the foldable phones offered by Oppo.

Why I ditched my iPhone 15 Pro for the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra
Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and iPhone 15 Pro in hand.

This is not another “lifelong iPhone user tries Android” story. I use and review all kinds of phones, and I prefer the flexibility of Android. That said, I’ve been on the iPhone 15 Pro since its launch — for two reasons. First, I had been getting the iPhone 14 Pro Max-level battery life on it. Second, I like the stability of social media apps like Instagram and X (formerly Twitter). But the experience has been downgrading for a while now.

Samsung's "AI phone," the Galaxy S24 Ultra, tackles these two issues and gives me some extra features that I didn’t think would be important for me. It’s been a surprisingly fun experience. Here’s why I shifted to the Galaxy S24 Ultra from the iPhone 15 Pro and decided to stay on it. And no, it has nothing to do with AI.

Samsung adding Auracast and 360 Audio to more TVs, phones, and earbuds
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro.

Samsung today announced a series of updates for some televisions and a trio of earbuds that will add features across the board, and also allow everything to play together that much more.

Auracast is one of the more interesting features on the way. It essentially allows one device to pick up a signal being broadcast by another, not unlike a radio. Samsung has had Auracast on select TVs for a while now, and it's been available on multiple Galaxy Buds earbuds. Now, it's expanding to phones and tablets. The ability to broadcast will hit the Galaxy S24 and S23 phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5, and the Tab S9 series. (They'll all need to have One UI 6.1 or newer.) And the ability to listen to an Auracast broadcast is coming to the Galaxy S24 series, S23 series, Z Fold5, Z Fold4, Z Flip5, Z Flip4, A54 5G, M54 5G, Tab S9 series, Tab S9 FE series and Tab Active 5 5G with One UI 5.1.1 or above.
