Apple’s M1 MacBook Pro, Samsung Galaxy devices and more on Cyber Monday Yes today is Cyber Monday , but since it’ll most likely be more like burned out Tuesday by the time you watch this video, we figured we’d get you deals that’ll still be available. Starting off with Samsung that has had a great holiday when it comes to deals. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is still $999 if you have an eligible device for trade-in and now it gets sweeter as you get $100 in Samsung credit for accessories. The Z flip 5G is available for just $300, the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra is available for just $599 and the S20 Ultra for $789 so yeah, get the Note or that Z Flip 5G. The S20 FE is available for $189 on trade-in, but if you go to Amazon you can get it for $549 which is a cool $150 discount. Again, all of these deals are trade-in offers and you can get the $100 in Samsung credit. Moving on to the M1 MacBooks, B&H has the 13in MacBook Pro for $1199 which means you’re getting a $100 discount on the entry level va

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 might cost the same as the Galaxy Z Fold 2

Image
Samsung truly shed the demons of its first foldable device failure when it launched the Galaxy Z Fold 2 earlier this year. In addition to introducing a refined design with an improved hinge mechanism, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 also came equipped with a larger cover display, a high refresh rate 120Hz inner display, a faster processor, a larger battery, and better cameras. However, all those upgrades came at a premium, despite it being a small one. But at $2000, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 ain’t a cheap phone by any means, and is almost on the verge of ‘too expensive for a phone’ tag. But as per a fresh leak, Samsung will keep the pricing intact for its next foldable phone, which might come as a sigh of relief for potential buyers. Leakster @MauriQHD has tweeted that the Galaxy Z Fold 3 won’t come with a price premium over the Galaxy Z Fold 2, despite all the upgrades that it is rumored to bring to the table. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 is still months away, so Samsung’s strategy might change down

M1 MacBook Pro with mini-LED display could launch sooner than expected

We keep getting rumors suggesting that Apple is gearing up to launch its first devices with mini-LED displays. Last week, we were getting a report from The Elec saying that at least one iPad Pro would feature this new display technology and that it would arrive sometime in the Q1 of 2021. And now, a new rumor suggests that we could also get a new M1 MacBook Pro using mini-LED displays shortly after. According to a report from DigiTimes, Apple could launch its new M1 MacBook Pro with a mini-LED display in the second quarter of 2021. It would benefit several Taiwan manufacturers, as they are getting ready to supply the upcoming Macs’ displays. “Apple’s suppliers in Taiwan, including LED chip vendor Epistar, testing and sorting specialist FitTech, SMT service provider Taiwan Surface Mounting Technology, backlight board supplier Zhen Ding Technology, cooling solution provider Auras Technology and process equipment maker All Ring Technology, are all ready to gain growth momentum from up

Apple zeroing in on suppliers to get periscope camera modules for upcoming iPhones

Image
Apple is among the only few major smartphone makers out there who are yet to use the periscope camera system on one of their high-end phones, but things might change soon. As per a fresh report from ETNews , Apple is trying to finalize suppliers for folded camera modules – or in simple terms, periscope camera systems – that can help achieve a significantly higher optical zoom range for its next wave of iPhones. A deal with Samsung appears unlikely, but seems necessary! The company is reportedly looking for suppliers that have the requisite technical acumen and patents to deliver periscope camera modules, but things are not going to be easy for Apple. Samsung Electronics is said to own key patents regulating the ‘folded camera’ technology, while the sister firm Samsung Electro-Mechanics is a key supplier of those components for Samsung’s own flagship portfolio. “Ball-type actuator is the key to folded camera, and patents related to the actuator are in possession of Corephotonic

Samsung’s next earbuds are called Galaxy Buds Pro as per US FCC documents

Image
A few days ago, we reported that Samsung will launch new true wireless earbuds early next year alongside the Galaxy S21 series. Now, a couple of certification documents have revealed some details about them. Starting with the name, certification documents spotted on the US FCC database have revealed that the upcoming earbuds will carry the model number SM-R190 and that they will debut under the name Galaxy Buds Pro .  In addition to revealing the name and model number, the certification documents on the US regulatory body’s database also give us an idea of what the charging case for the Galaxy Buds Pro looks like. The shape of the charging looks like a square with rounded corners , similar to what Samsung offered with the Galaxy Buds Live . The rated charging output of the earbuds, as per the design schematics on the certification documents, is listed as 5V-120mA, while that of the charging case is 5V-500mA (that effectively translates to 2.5W). Charging case design schematics
