Samsung publishes early presentation of Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3

From Russia with love. A post on an official Samsung website confirms the date of its next Unpacked event.

Samsung has gone through a complex and tangled scenario this 2021. It started in a big way with the alteration of its traditional launch schedule, advancing the Galaxy S21.

This filled everyone with expectations and emotions at the obvious possibility that he would repeat the move with all of his other products. So September has become the great point of unknown.

We don’t have an official date for the next Unpacked yet. But Samsung has suffered a massive leak of the Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy Watch 4, Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, and Galaxy Buds 2.

In that month Samsung usually presents its second line of smartphones by the end of the year. But the monumental amount of leaks that have emerged suggests that they actually have more than one gadget ready for quite some time.

We know they will have an Unpacked event for “the summer”, but the date was a mere rumor. So far that was confirmed, in a somewhat strange and unexpected way.

From Russia, with love from Samsung

In a totally unexpected turn of events, that rumor has just been confirmed that the Unpacked presentation event would take place on August 11, 2021.

The strange and peculiar thing here is that it was all done by an accidental update from an official Samsung website. Where the page showed for a time a banner with the date and time (local of Moscow, Russia) of the conference:

The recognized leaker @evleaks He was in charge of making the news of this publication on the web viral, which was soon deleted.

But as often happens in this class of cases, someone had the good sense to take a screenshot to immortalize the unintended error.

This detail is in addition to other recent leaks where it is stated that both the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Galaxy Z Flip 3 would be launched on August 27, 2021.

Amazon Canada does it again and publishes a product entry where they end up revealing on what date the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 will go on sale.

That without counting the Galaxy Watch 4, which because of Amazon half the world already knows that it will go on sale that same day.

All the dates add up, so it would be a matter of only a few days for Samsung to send the formal invitations to its Unpacked and everything becomes official.

Data collected by analytics company Canalys in its report for the second quarter of 2021 shows that Xiaomi has been by far the company with the highest annual growth, with 83%. In addition, it has positioned itself in second place by market share, with 17%, surpassing for the first time Apple, which has only 14% and which has now moved to third place. However, the market leader is still Samsung , although this leadership could be snatched soon by Xiaomi. The South Korean giant, with a 19% market share, grew only 15%, a number well below the 83% of the Chinese company. If it maintains this growth rate, the Chinese corporation can be expected to outperform the South Korean conglomerate in a short time.According to Stanton, the main objective of the Chinese company is to have affordable prices to be able to massively cover the entire market. Their prices reflect these targets, as the average cost of Xiaomi smartphones is 40% lower than Samsung’s and 75% lower than Apple’s. This has undoubtedly contributed to its increase in market share. For the company, obtaining second place is a “fantastic achievement and also an important milestone in the history of Xiaomi,” said Lei Jun, founder and CEO of Xiaomi, in A letter to employees.Other companies that could displace Apple from third place, which grew only 1%, are Oppo – which currently has a 10% share and 28% growth – and Vivo – also with 10% and 27% growth—. Both companies are based in China and are subsidiaries of the multinational BBK Electronics.

I believe that Russia advanced producing good smartphones, but China could accelerate the development of these offerings of very good Russian smartphones, Russia is making the leap in a sustainable economy to improve the quality of life of its citizens and China together with Russia could do the commercial unit in smart phones, faced with a common enemy of free trade

samsung, smartphones, apple, carriers, xiaomi, smartphones

Xiaomi, a company that until a few years ago was unknown in the smartphone market, could be on its way to becoming the undisputed leader in this segment. The Chinese company has surpassed Apple in market share for the first time in history after having an impressive growth of 83%.

The data collected by the analytics company Canalys in their report for the second quarter of 2021 show that Xiaomi has been by far the company with the highest annual growth, with 83%. In addition, it has positioned itself in second place by market share, with 17%, beating Apple for the first time, which has only 14% and has now moved to third place.

However, the market leader is still Samsung, although this leadership could soon be snatched by Xiaomi. The South Korean giant, with a 19% market share, grew only 15%, a number well below the 83% of the Chinese company.

If it maintains this growth rate, the Chinese corporation can be expected to overtake the South Korean conglomerate in a short time.

“Xiaomi is developing rapidly abroad. For example, its shipments increased by more than 300% in Latin America150% in Africa and 50% in Western Europe, “said Ben Stanton, manager of Canalys.

According to Stanton, the main objective of the Chinese company is to have affordable prices to be able to cover the entire market massively. Their prices reflect these objectives, since the average cost of the smartphones Xiaomi is 40% lower than Samsung’s and 75% lower than Apple’s. This has certainly contributed to its increase in market share.

For the company, getting second place is a “fantastic achievement and also an important milestone in Xiaomi’s history”, he pointed Lei Jun, founder and CEO of Xiaomi, in a letter to employees.

Other companies that could displace Apple, which grew only 1%, from third place are Oppo – which currently has a 10% share and 28% growth – and Vivo – also with 10% and 27% growth. Both companies are based in China and are subsidiaries of the multinational BBK Electronics.

Xiaomi invests more and more in chips to become independent from the US

Samsungs Galaxy Books im Test

Samsung’s new Galaxy Books promise seamless work across device boundaries with an integrated smartphone. That sounds suspiciously like Apple – but does it work?

The elephant is in the room. Because the new seamless user experience that Samsung is promising for its new Galaxy Books has been known to Apple users out there for years.

File exchange from the phone to the computer and back? No problem with Airdrop. Synchronous data in the online storage, without additional apps, word processing, spreadsheets, e-mails and presentations? Power the iCloud. Windows users do not have these direct options. You have to take detours via paid office packages, additional apps or third-party services.

And this is exactly where Samsung comes in: Galaxy Book and Galaxy smartphones should simply work together. No long fiddling, no computer science studies – just tap and you’re done. How do you do that?

Have a look: three flat, simple notebooks

The notebooks are not noticeable from a purely visual point of view. Simple and elegant, they come with Windows 10 as a convertible Galaxy Book 360, as a large notebook Galaxy Book and as a slim high-performance Galaxy Book Pro notebook. It contains Intel chips from Core i3 to i7, 8 to 16 gigabytes (GB) of RAM, up to 512 GB of permanent storage and, if desired, LTE radio (except 360). There is also the Galaxy Book Go with a Qualcomm chip. Price: between 450 and 1,800 euros.

All models are neatly made, have good screens and keyboards, fingerprint sensors and long battery runtimes. Unfortunately, pen input or touch operation is only available on the Galaxy Book 360. The Galaxy Book Pro has a very attractive AMOLED display.

The setup is quick. If you have clicked your way through the Windows setup, you still need a Samsung account. Samsung programs are then installed in the background. Works straight away. But it also ensures that users now have to keep their software up to date in two places. Once Windows, once Samsung.

Quickly slide the picture over

Then the test with the Samsung Galaxy S21 in hand. How does the data exchange work? Samsung’s solution for this is called Quick Share. It is preinstalled on the Galaxy Books and runs on all Samsung Galaxy with at least Android 10. The setup is simple: switch on, select who can see your own computer or phone (nobody, contacts, everyone), done.

If you share a file on your smartphone, compatible devices appear nearby. A tap on the symbol sends the file over without further request. Whether you really want to receive it or not – that is not asked. But Quick Share only works on the notebook if you start the corresponding app. In return, the transmission speed is fast.

If you send files from the notebook, a right click is enough. Quick Share is listed as an option in the Windows context menu, where other devices can be found nearby. This can be other Samsung notebooks, smartphones or tablets. Other Androids and iOS devices are left behind here. Quick Share is currently only available for Samsung devices.

Conclusion: Yes, it works fine if you only have Samsung

Samsung’s Quick Share works. It’s a good tool for swiftly sharing files and making it easier to work with multiple devices. With the other Samsung programs on the Galaxy Books, so much pain disappears that Windows users previously had when using notebooks and smartphones. Finally, you can move a file in a few simple steps and you don’t have to upload it somewhere, send it by email or drag it to USB sticks.

What is missing in the Samsung package is neatly integrated online storage with its own calendar solution and productivity software. Only then would it be possible to catch up with Apple’s iCloud. Instead, there is Microsoft’s Office 365 and OneDrive online storage. These services are again well integrated in Windows, and they work reasonably well on Android smartphones. However, it only offers full functionality with a paid subscription.

The new Galaxy Books remove a long-standing and annoying obstacle, at least for Samsung devices. So if you already have a Samsung smartphone and are looking for a notebook: One of the Galaxy Books could be a good solution with added value. If you don’t have a Samsung smartphone, you get solid notebooks for every application scenario – without a smooth connection to your own smartphone.

These weren’t the only phones the popular leaker shared. He also presented what will be the next Galaxy S21 FE in all its variants: white, copper, negro Y purple.

There was also room for new smart watches from Samsung. One of them looks like the rumored Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, which could be the first watch to emerge after the merging Wear OS with Tizen, and the other looks like the Galaxy Watch Active 4.

Finally, Blass shared the new Galaxy Buds 2, which seems to have a design very similar to that of the Galaxy Buds Pro.

Samsung increases operating profit by 53 percent

SSouth Korea’s largest conglomerate, Samsung Electronics, is expected to have increased its operating profit by 53 percent in the second quarter of the year compared to the same quarter of the previous year and thus significantly exceeded the forecasts of analysts. According to its own statements, Samsung expects an operating plus of 12.5 trillion won (9.3 billion euros). Sales rose 19 percent to 63 trillion won.

Patrick Welter

Correspondent for business and politics in Japan, based in Tokyo.

Samsung had already increased its operating profit by 47 percent in the first quarter. At that time, good sales of smartphones in particular contributed to the increase in profits. But now, according to analysts, the preliminary result underlines how much the company is benefiting from the great demand for electronic memory modules, which is expected to continue in the current quarter. Samsung itself will not publish details of the quarterly results until the end of the month.

The South Korean model company is the largest manufacturer of memory chips that are used in smartphones and computers. The price of DRAM chips rose by an average of about 15 percent in the second quarter. This is being helped by companies expanding their data centers after the corona pandemic drove demand for internet-based services. The chips stocks that some companies had built have shrunk with consumer interest in electronic devices. The fact that production in a Samsung semiconductor plant in Austin, America, was up and running again after there were production downtimes there in the first quarter due to storms also had a positive effect on the quarterly result.

Lower demand for smartphones

Analysts, however, assume that business with smartphones was less good in the second quarter. According to one estimate, Samsung sold about 59 million of the mobile communication devices in the second quarter, up from 76 million in the first quarter. Part of the decline is due to Samsung launching a new top-of-the-range phone earlier than usual in the first quarter, which pushed demand forward. Analysts also pointed to worse business in India as the pandemic weighed on demand there. In the first quarter, the company had also announced that there would be bottlenecks in processors. Samsung benefits and is also burdened elsewhere by the global shortage of semiconductors.

Samsung, on August 11 the new foldable smartphones arrive – Hi-tech

Samsung has announced the presentation date of its new foldable products. In a banner sent to the press and published online, the Korean giant confirmed the date that many already expected: 11 August will be Unpacked 2021, the second of the year after the one that saw the Galaxy S21 as protagonists. At the bottom of the invitation, there is also an indication with the devices to be revealed. On stage there will be the Galaxy Z Fold 3, the Galaxy Z Flip 3, the Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Buds 2, the new generation of the group’s in-ear headphones. It seems clear that we will not see any Galaxy Note, whose series will thus end with last year’s Galaxy Note 20.

Not surprisingly, in recent days the company’s managers, speaking at the Mobile World Congress in digital form, had emphasized how the intention was to extend the use of the S Pen, a distinctive element of the Note family, to other devices as well. , without confirmation about a support for the leaflets. The next top of the ‘foldable’ range could actually benefit from the stylus, to be purchased separately, as already happened for the Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. For the two folding, improvements in design and internal hardware are expected. In particular, the Z Flip 3 should have a larger 1.9-inch external screen with which to access notifications without having to open the flip phone. The Galaxy Watch, likely in two sizes, will be Samsung’s first watch launched following the union of Tizen OS with Android Wear, Google’s wearable operating system. The event of 11 August precedes the expected presentation of the iPhone 13 by about a month.
