      No matter how careful you are, chances are that you will drop your phone eventually. When and if this does happen, all you can do is cross your fingers and hope that it didn’t cause any damage. Thankfully, even the glass-covered smartphones that companies are releasing now are rather sturdy. But there are still risks, which is why content creators continue to conduct drop tests with any new phones. Speaking of which, over the weekend, PhoneBuff shared a new drop test video, pitting the iPhone 13 Pro Max against the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
      Don't Miss: Wednesday’s deals: $50 Echo Buds, secret Fire TV deal, Oral-B sale, Samsung monitors, more iPhone 13 Pro Max vs. Galaxy S22 Ultra drop test
      As PhoneBuff explains in the video, Samsung included a couple of notable upgrades on the Galaxy S22 Ultra that should improve its durability. First, Samsung says its front display uses Corning’s Gorilla Glass Victus Plus. Weirdly, it’s unclear what makes it “plus,” because there is no documentation on Corning’s website about this specific product.
      The Galaxy S22 Ultra also features a new Armor Aluminum frame. Samsung claims that it’s 10% stronger than the 7000 series aluminum frame that it typically uses.
      So, are these improvements enough for the Galaxy S22 Ultra to beat the Ceramic Shield and stainless steel frame of the iPhone 13 Pro Max? Watch and find out:
      Results of the drop test
      As you can see in the video, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is the clear winner.
      Early in the drop test, the iPhone and Galaxy appeared to be equally durable. After one back drop, both phones got several minor scuffs and each suffered a crack on the rear panel. The iPhone was slightly worse for wear. Other than that, both were fully operational.
      The corner drop was also inconclusive. Even with its sharp corner, the Galaxy S22 Ultra didn’t sustain any serious damage. The scratches are clearly more noticeable on the S22 Ultra, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max also had a dent after the drop.
      The face drop was the most damaging for both phones. The front display glass shattered on both the Galaxy S22 Ultra and the iPhone 13 Pro Max. All of the fancy names in the world did not save the displays from shattering upon hitting the concrete. With that said, the damage looked significantly worse on the Galaxy. The cracks covered more of the display, and the under-display fingerprint scanner stopped working altogether.
      Finally, it’s worth noting that as PhoneBuff continued to drop both phones ten more times from even higher up, the condition of the Galaxy worsened much more quickly than that of the iPhone. By the end of the drop test, the S Pen wouldn’t even come out of the S22 Ultra’s slot. Meanwhile, the iPhone 13 Pro Max continued to work flawlessly.
      In the end, the iPhone 13 Pro Max received an impressive drop test score of 39/40, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra received a 34/40. Both phones are relatively durable, but the iPhone will seemingly stand a better chance of surviving multiple rough tumbles.

      Samsung’s Galaxy A53 leaked not too long ago, and we told you at the time the 2022 mid-ranger would dominate the Galaxy S22. That was before all of the Galaxy S22 controversies. The prediction was based on the A53’s predecessors’ sales performance. Those phones outsold their Galaxy S contemporaries in previous years.
      Fast-forward to Wednesday, and Samsung has finally launched the Galaxy A53. The phone offers truly incredible value for anyone looking for decent performance for the right price. And the price, by the way, just got better. Add to that the same four years of Android guarantees and 5G support of the Galaxy S22, and you get a Samsung phone that can easily outsell a flagship.
      Don't Miss: Wednesday’s deals: $50 Echo Buds, secret Fire TV deal, Oral-B sale, Samsung monitors, more Like the iPhone SE 3, the Galaxy A53 is similar to the previous generation. Galaxy A52 users will find the hole-punch design similar. The same goes for the rear-facing plastic back. They’ll expect 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage for the cheapest model.
      That’s precisely what Samsung delivers with the Galaxy A53. We’ve got a 6.5-inch OLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, Full HD resolution, and a built-in fingerprint sensor. The camera system on the back is also in line with expectations: 64-megapixel primary sensor, 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and two 5-megapixel depth and macro lenses. A 32-megapixel shooter pierces the screen.

      What changed on the Galaxy A53 is the processor. Instead of a Snapdragon System-on-Chip (SoC), you’ll get the Exynos 1280 5nm chip. Or the kind of SoC that Samsung can throttle and nobody will care. Put differently; the Galaxy A53 won’t touch the iPhone SE 3 when it comes to performance.
      Also new is the 5,000 mAh battery, which Samsung says will last for two days on a single charge. That’s 25W charging, by the way. Add IP67 water and dust resistance, and the Galaxy A53 should be on any list of mid-range devices.
      That’s especially considering that Samsung cut the Galaxy A53 price by $50. The phone is available for preorder starting at $449.99 before any trade-in or other deals. Moreover, you get a free pair of Galaxy Buds Live, which retail for $169.99 otherwise. The Galaxy A53 will ship to buyers on April 1st.
      The four years of Android updates should clinch this deal, as it ensures you’ll be on the latest version of Android for the entire period you might want to use the phone. You also get five years of security upgrades.

      While US buyers are only getting the Galaxy A53, Samsung launched two additional A-series models on Wednesday. The Galaxy A33 is the cheaper version of the Galaxy A53. Also a 5G phone, the Galaxy A53 has a slightly smaller display at 6.4-inch. And it only offers support for 90Hz refresh rates.
      Also notable is the display design. This isn’t a hole-punch display. Instead, it has a camera notch at the top and a larger bottom bezel. The primary rear camera also gets a downgrade to a 48-megapixel sensor.
      Otherwise, the Galaxy A33 is identical to the Galaxy A53. But the phone will retail in Europe for €369. The Galaxy A53’s price in Europe is €449, implying the Galaxy A33 would cost $369 in the US. But, again, Samsung isn’t launching the more affordable A-series phone in the States.
      Finally, there’s the higher-end Galaxy A72, which isn’t getting a US launch either. The phone packs a larger 6.7-inch OLED screen, a Snapdragon 778G SoC, and a 108-megapixel primary camera. The phone will go on sale in select markets on April 22nd, for an undisclosed price. The Galaxy A33 5G will also hit various markets on April 22nd.

      Hi guys,
      The first Tizen phone, the Samsung Z1, will be released in India next month. According to another report Samsung intends to release the Tizen smartphone initially in India, but then will also launch in China in February 2015, shortly followed in Korea in the first half of 2015.
      http://www.tizenexperts.com/2014/12/tizen-samsung-z1-full-specifications-leaked-india-release-followed-china-korea/
      edit: new pictures: http://www.tizenexperts.com/2014/12/more-leaked-pictures-of-first-tizen-smartphone-samsung-z1-sm-z130h/
      The price would be less than 100.000 Korean won = 75 euro = 90 US dollar = 5.700 Indian rupee
      Will you buy one ?

      Samsung isn’t the only company making foldable smartphones, but it’s certainly the leading player. Huawei, Motorola, and Xiaomi have launched or unveiled their own foldable devices already, and Lenovo made a foldable laptop. Other smartphone makers released dual-screen handsets (Microsoft and LG), rollable phones (Oppo and LG), and showed off foldable concepts of their own.
      But Samsung was the first mainstream smartphone maker to reveal a foldable handset, and the first to launch two different form-factors. Several reports claim that Samsung wants to increase foldable phone sales significantly. Its recent moves show that the company is looking to make foldable phones more affordable to interested buyers. But a new rumor indicates that Samsung doesn’t have any exciting foldable surprises in store for 2021.

      Samsung said a few weeks ago that the current chip crisis might force it to cancel this year’s Galaxy Note 21. But the chip shortage might really just be the “perfect storm” for Samsung to kill the Note line without many questions. Various rumors claimed in the past that the Note brand is dying and might be replaced by foldables.
      Samsung has not announced any new foldable devices this year, choosing instead to offer extensive trial periods for the existing Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold 2. We would have expected the new Z Flip 2 to launch in the first half of the year, with the Z Fold 3 set for the second half.
      According to SamMobile, the two phones are coming this year, and they will both launch in the second half of 2021. But Samsung will not unveil a third foldable form-factor this year or a cheaper Galaxy Z Fold.
      Samsung has an abundance of design patents for foldable devices, including one that shows a dual-foldable handset that would feature two hinges and three display sides. Samsung also patented a foldable tablet design. As always with patent documentation, the technology innovations that companies want to protect might not always be used in commercial products.
      A different rumor said a few months ago that Samsung was also working for a more exciting Galaxy Z Fold version. The “Lite” variation would help Samsung lower the entry price for the handset and lure in more buyers who aren’t comfortable paying nearly $2,000 for a high-end Fold. The Lite would launch alongside the more expensive Z Fold upgrade.
      That doesn’t appear to be the case. But Samsung might not even need a Lite version of its foldables. As it introduces new models, it could drop the prices of the current Z Flip and Z Fold 2. Samsung already cut the Z Fold 2’s price a few days ago, when it launched an extended trial promo in the UK — a similar promotion was available to US buyers until a few days ago. That way, it could sell more affordable foldables alongside the brand new models, which would probably be priced between $1,500 and $2,000. The arrival of Xiaomi’s first foldable will help in that regard, as the Chinese smartphone maker has a very aggressive price for its high-end foldable, which will put additional pressure on Samsung.
      That said, SamMobile doesn’t say when Samsung will launch its 2021 foldable handsets. The likeliest scenario is for Samsung to host an Unpacked event in August, which would have been the new Note’s traditional press conference.

      A few days ago, Samsung warned investors and fans that the current chip shortage might prevent it from launching a new Galaxy Note smartphone this year. But there was no evidence that Samsung was actually developing a Note 21 phone before the company said the chip shortage could impact smartphone production. Early rumors always seem to reveal specs and design choices for the next Galaxy flagship well before the phone is ready to launch. That hasn’t happened with the Note 21 series. If anything, longstanding rumors said that Samsung would cancel the Note series, which is increasingly difficult for Samsung to differentiate from its Galaxy S phones. The Galaxy S21 Ultra is the best proof of that. It features a large display and supports the S Pen. Screen size and stylus interaction were the signature features of the original Note.
      Various rumors also claimed that Samsung might replace the Note with the obvious choice that would keep the Note legacy intact. A foldable phone would offer a bigger display than traditional smartphones and could continue to support S Pen functionality like the Note. A new report from Asia says that Samsung is indeed looking to diversify and expand the foldable phone lineup for 2021 by launching a third device that would fold not once, but twice. The double-folding phone would join the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 2 phones that are both still expected to launch later this year.

      Sources familiar with Samsung’s plans told Nikkei Asia the Samsung aims to increase foldable phone production “sharply,” despite chip shortages. Samsung also aims to make up for the lost Note sales with foldables, hopefully increasing revenue in the process. Samsung sold an estimate of 3.5 million foldable handsets last year, and wants to raise that figure to over 10 million a year in the near future, which would match Note sales.
      People who claim to be familiar with Samsung’s plans said that “the suspension of the Note series was pretty much decided last year. The company wants to bet more on foldable phones that have much higher prices with distinctive designs.”
      A different person said that Samsung has “long struggled to differentiate its two premium phone series, the Galaxy S and Note, which are often set for the first half of the year and the second half, respectively… The company is thinking to use foldable phones as a key differentiator and hopefully to replace its Note series in some ways.”
      A double-folding Galaxy phone wouldn’t necessarily be a surprise. We’ve already seen several patents from Samsung detailing such devices. The handset would feature two hinges instead of one. When unfolded, the device would offer users even more screen real estate than the Galaxy Z Fold. And a smartphone design like this could potentially replace the Note. This year’s foldable Galaxy handsets are supposed to feature S Pen functionality, according to rumors.
      Nikkei makes no mention of the stylus but offers other details about the double-folding handset. “The design is set to make the unfolded screen aspect ratio be in line with the mainstream ratio of 16:9 or 18:9, so more video games and other apps could run more smoothly with better resolutions on the device,” according to a person with knowledge of the matter.
      The Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a 25:9 aspect ratio, making it harder to develop apps that take advantage of the whole screen. On the other hand, Samsung has always stressed that the bigger display can be split between different apps to enhance multitasking.
      According to the report, the unnamed double-folding Samsung phone will be unveiled as early as late-2021. Samsung usually launches the new Note flagships during an Unpacked event set in early August. It’s unclear when the 2021 Galaxy Z Flip and Fold versions will be announced.
