2019 is the year of the 5G phone, at least from companies like Samsung and LG. But rumor has it that Apple won’t be jumping on the bandwagon until 2020.
Is Apple going to launch a foldable phone? That does appear to be the question of the day, week, month, and maybe the year.
Samsung has, without a doubt, announced one of the most exciting smartphone products in a long while today (oh, and also the new Galaxy S10 lineup). But it has also introduced a price tag as a huge gatekeeper.
Samsung has been teasing a foldable smartphone for years now. That came to a head when the company showed off its first prototype device in November of last year.
Samsung is working on a new set of AirPods competitor dubbed the Galaxy Buds. The company has leaked the wireless Bluetooth earbuds along with its new smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch Active, via its own wearable app.
Given Apple dominance in the tablet market and the dire state of Android on tablets, one would believe that Android OEMs have given up on the segment. While most of them have, Samsung is still trying. The company today unveiled the $400 Galaxy Tab S5e and despite its mid-range price tag, the tablet gives the 11-inch iPad Pro a run for its money by being thinner and lighter than it.
Earlier this year, Samsung announced that its new series of smart TVs would support Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit.
