This year's Samsung Galaxy phones may be called the S20 and S20+ – CNN

Published

 on


Samsung appears to have skipped a bunch of numbers since its last smartphone launch. S10, S10+ and Note 10 were some of last year’s phones. The names of the S20 and S20+ were confirmed in certificate listings on a Thai government website.
Samsung might also unveil a second foldable phone. In October, Samsung teased a mobile device with a “clamshell” form factor. Last year’s original Galaxy Fold had a tough initial launch following multiple defective review units.
Samsung did not immediately return a request for comment. The company is holding an official keynote on February 11th in San Francisco where it will unveil new devices.
Numerous leaks have circulated online about the phones, saying the new phones have 3-4 rear cameras and bigger screens and batteries. A third phone is rumored to be called the S20 Ultra.
The pressure could be on for Samsung, which faces many global rivals including Apple, Huawei, Oppo and others.
“The company needs to hold its position in the challenging premium segment,” Gerrit Schneemann, senior analyst of mobile handsets at IHS Markit, told CNN Business, “A new generation of stand-out flagships is needed for Samsung to fend off the competition.”

Unlike LED and QLED TVs, OLED TVs don’t have a backlight layer. Instead, each pixel is its own teeny-tiny LED light that can independently adjust luminosity and even turn off completely. Because each pixel functions independently, the TV offers elite image quality — and the darkest shadows. OLED televisions also tend to be ultra thin. This particular LG set measures just 1.8 inches thick. It features 4K upscaling, plus built-in Google Assistant and Alexa.

The Verge’s creator gift guide: ideas for streamers, TikTokers, and more

Published

 on

 

Finding that perfect gift for a creator can be challenging, which is why we’ve compiled all kinds of useful and fun ideas for all kinds of folks, from TikTokers and Twitch streamers to photographers.

A creative idea for a video, a photo, or an entertaining livestream can prove more valuable than any piece of gear, but you can’t really give that as a gift to the creator in your life. And what’s worse, content creators are often hard to buy for — with very specific needs that get very costly very quickly. But even if you don’t know a Twitch stream from a TikTok split screen, we’ve put together a gift guide with a bunch of ideas that are fun yet functional for creators of all types, including those who just want to look professional on a Zoom call.

When it comes to creative video needs, good lighting and nice-sounding audio are of the utmost importance, so we’ve picked out the Rotolight Ultimate Vlogging Kit ($64.99) and the Audio-Technica ATR2100x-USB microphone ($69.49) as excellent starting points. Want to go big on video quality instead? The Nikon Z30 mirrorless camera kit ($796.95) is built with helpful presets and settings designed specifically for vlogging. And if you don’t want to focus on the gear that makes the content, try gifting your creator something that ups their on-camera decor, like Divoom’s adorable Ditoo Plus speaker ($99.90) or a sleek desk mat from KBDfans ($12).

It may feel daunting to buy gifts for a creator, but we’re here to guide you through all kinds of options they’re sure to find handy — even if it’s just as simple as a convenient spot to hang their headphones ($11.21).

price range:

 

Anker 511 Charger (20W)

Any on-the-go creator needs to keep devices juiced up, even while traveling light. Fortunately, this tiny 20W charger from Anker is as small as the 5W chargers Apple used to supply with everything, yet it can still fast-charge an iPhone or Android device while taking up minimal space. Plus, it comes in a bunch of fun colors that will help it stand out in your kit bag.
Price: $13.99

 

Rode VideoMicro

The ultra-compact Rode VideoMicro is perfect for mounting on a camera that’s going to be filming close to a subject, such as when you’re vlogging.

In fact, a collection of our editors and writers have grown so fond of this versatile tool, they did an entire Vergecast episode dedicated to its many uses.
Price: $119.99

 

Insta360 Link webcam

It’s time to say goodbye to bad webcam angles and annoying Center Stage-like software tricks.

That tech comes at a steep price, but the Link also features great software, loads of potential, and 4K chops to back it all up with great video quality.
Price: $284.99

 

Nikon Z30 camera kit with 16–50mm lens

Price: $796.95

 

iPad Mini (2021)

Just don’t count on a headphone jack.

Price: $2.999.99

 

GoPro Hero 10 Black

Action mode is cool and all, but nothing beats a GoPro when it comes to versatility, especially when you need to mount your action cam in hard-to-reach places to capture that unique angle. The GoPro Hero 10 is much faster than previous models but remains compatible with the same accessories as the last-gen Hero 9, and it now achieves 5.3K 60fps and 4K 120fps recording. That’s some very fast high-resolution video.
Price: $349.99

 

Anchor Pro headphone mount
