Samsung’s Galaxy S10 has Wi-Fi 6 and faster LTE

See the original posting on The Verge

They might not be the flashiest features, but Samsung’s new Galaxy S10 line has a subtler pair of upgrades that could meaningfully improve the experience of using them day in and out. All three new phones, the S10, S10 Plus, and S10E, include support for Wi-Fi 6 as well as 2 gigabit LTE speeds, up from 1.2 gigabits last year. The upgrades offer the potential for faster internet speeds, whether you’re connected to a cell network or just your home router.

Now, there are some big caveats here. For one, you’re never actually going to hit 2 Gbps on your wireless network — that figure is the phone’s theoretical maximum speed. But the higher figure reflects various speed-boosting improvements, which ought to translate to at least some…

You can buy a Galaxy S10 Plus with more storage than your laptop

See the original posting on The Verge

Samsung is bumping the storage up to 1TB in its new Galaxy S10 Plus. It’s the first handset to use Samsung’s new 1TB eUFS (embedded Universal Flash Storage) solution, and it’s the same size as last year’s 512GB version. While Samsung marketed the Galaxy Note 9 as “1 terabyte ready,” it needed an additional 512GB microSD card to reach that storage capacity. Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Plus comes with up to 1TB of storage on board, putting it ahead of the storage of most modern laptops.

Samsung’s latest chips are designed for the very purpose of laptop-like tasks. Samsung first unveiled its 1TB chips earlier this year, promising a “more notebook-like user experience [for] the next generation of mobile devices.” Samsung’s DeX docking station…

Samsung has sold 2 billion Galaxy phones in less than a decade

See the original posting on The Verge

Samsung CEO DJ Koh has announced that the company has sold over 2 billion Galaxy phones since it started selling them back in 2010, marking one of the first times that the company has ever put a number on sales for the line. The news came at Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event, where it announced the new Galaxy Fold and Galaxy S10 devices.

Now, Samsung didn’t say what phones it was including in that count — certainly, the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note lines are included, but Samsung does also sell numerous other Galaxy phones in different markets like the Galaxy A, Galaxy C, Galaxy J, and other variants over the years that may count toward that total, too. But no matter how you slice it, it’s certainly an impressive milestone for the…

Samsung Announces The Galaxy S10: 10th Anniversary Trio

See the original posting on Anandtech

It’s hard to believe, but it’s actually been 10 years now since Samsung released the first iteration of the Galaxy line of phones. The Galaxy S started a wave of success for Samsung that continued on in its various iterations over the years.

Today, in a slight change of pace, Samsung is holding the launch event of the new Galaxy S10 out in San Franciso – a few days earlier than the usual Barcelona/MWC unveiling.

The Galaxy S10 represents a new design iteration for Samsung, updating the “characteristic” look that the company tends to maintain for two generations. This year, Samsung does not only change venue as well as its product design, it also mixes up the traditional model line-up with the introduction of a new lower-end Galaxy S10 model.

Today’s announcement covers the new Galaxy S10e, the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10+, representing a trio of devices celebrating the 10 year anniversary of Samsung’s flagship line-up.

As is tradition, the easiest way to talk about what’s announced today is to present the specification sheets of the three models and dive into the differentiation factors between the different models:

Watch: Diver rescues a little fish trapped in a plastic bag and it’s very satisfying

See the original posting on Boing Boing

Over 100,000 marine animals die every year after getting trapped in plastic, but this little fish got lucky. A diver in Phuket, Thailand found the creature trapped in a plastic bag and, after a bit of gentle shaking and maneuvering, was able to free set it free. It might just be a tiny fish, but I was sitting on the edge of my seat watching this video. Read the rest

Anker’s PowerWave+ Pad is the latest AirPower knock-off you probably shouldn’t get

See the original posting on The Verge

It’s been close to a year and a half since Apple first announced AirPower, its supposedly revolutionary wireless charger that still has yet to materialize. Now, yet another knock-off version of the still-missing powermat has appeared — this time in the form of Anker’s new PowerWave+ Pad, via 9to5Toys.

As knock-off AirPower pads go, this one is pretty lame. Anker is asking for $54 for the ability to charge a single device, plus an Apple Watch (assuming you thread a not-included $29 Apple Watch charging cable into the charging pad). Power is supplied by a Micro USB cable, despite the fact that this was released in 2019. The pad itself appears to just be a hunk of plastic. There are cheaper and better-looking options out there.
