Samsung will have to compete against Apple, Samsung Electronics is set to take on Google in court next week, and the battle for dominance in the PC hardware market continues. Next week’s competition will be three events from three large firms over three days.
That means we’re going to be writing a lot about and testing a variety of devices for the next few weeks.
The fact is that many Android users have felt neglected, and there’s a certain amount of anger toward Google for it. This causes a lot of uncertainty in the market, as well as a contentious relationship between Android phone users and Samsung. Apple and Samsung are two huge competitors who can’t seem to coexist peacefully whenever one wins over another.
Apple is kicking off the event at 10AM PT/1PM ET on Monday. It’s been roughly a month since Apple held its latest event, which introduced new iPhones, Apple Watches, and iPads. There was, however, one notable exception.
It appeared to make sense that Mac would go the press release route, but rather it appears that Apple has chosen to shine a light on its product once again. I’ve already said that organizations are less compelled to cram everything into a single event these days since they’re no longer expecting people from across the world to come.
Apple has announced a slew of updates to the iMac lineup, including an all-new 21.5-inch model and a new 27-inch iMac with Retina 4K display. The first two models essentially replace last year’s M1 versions, which had identical guts.
The AirPods’ pricing is as follows: the new third-generation wireless headphones, which Apple claims will be ‘even better’ than their predecessors.
When it comes to new chips, Google has already announced its intention to debut its own Tensor chip, becoming the latest company to defy Qualcomm. This will be utilized in the Pixel 6 and a Pro variant.
Google has even set up a product page for the pair ahead of time.
The iPhone X’s front-facing camera is set to feature a 7MP sensor, which will likely provide Portrait mode. The rear cameras on the iPhone X and 8 Plus are identical, with two 12MP sensors and one dual-lens system (with both depth sensors), as previously reported by TechRadar.
The Samsung event on Wednesday is the most uncertain of the three, given how prior Samsung smartphones have leaked. We don’t anticipate another Galaxy S smartphone until well into next year’s MWC in February or March. A PC or tablet appears to be a good guess. Though the bright colors in the invitation may provide additional evidence.
