The iPhone XS Max was launched back in September. And the easy bet is that Apple will launch newer, improved iPhones later this year. But for now, while other companies launch their own 2019 flagships, the iPhone XS is the handset to compare against.
iPhone XS Max Sees Its Signal Strength Compared to the OnePlus 7 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S10, and Others
Back in January of this year, Samsung (and many other smart TV manufacturers) announced it would support AirPlay 2 and a new Apple TV app. One month later and the company launched its 2019 QLED lineup of TVs, each of which supported the new Apple TV app and AirPlay 2. But that left a lot of smart TVs without support, including 2018 models.
Finding a way to turn a trend into a longstanding feature is tough. Some things, like modular smartphones, don’t pick up steam like some companies thought they might. But if there is one thing to say about Samsung, it’s that the company does have a keen eye on picking out winners.
Later this month, Apple is going to host another quarterly earnings report. The company won’t be breaking down individual numbers, but we’ll get a broad look at how well things are going for the iPhone company. Based on a recent report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, things looked pretty good for Apple in the first quarter.
Samsung is launching its first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, later this month. Initial hands-on impressions of the handset were pretty positive. But now, one day later, and the plastic display on the inside is already seeing some major issues.
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.
