Samsung redefined the smartphone experience with the introduction of its foldable devices. By merit of the devices’ innovative form factor, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G have expanded the ways a smartphone can be used.
While the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G has been designed as a powerhouse device to stand the test of time, Galaxy Z Flip3 5G offers users a style that doesn’t compromise on function, with self-expression built into the very design of the device.
Whether a user is opening, closing, or just simply holding their phone, every motion is smooth and effortless with Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, as the device maintains a fine balance throughout its body when unfolded as well as folded. Going beyond seamlessly bringing two screens together with its refined form and components, Galaxy Z Fold3 5G also appears slimmer and provides a better grip than its predecessors.
Users can take advantage of more uninterrupted viewing experiences when using the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G unfolded. Thanks to new Under display camera technology, the screen’s seamless 120Hz refresh rate, and rich stereo provide deeper immersion when watching videos, playing games, or enjoying other content.
The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G is also the perfect work companion for day-to-day life. It’s ideal for video conferencing as it has an enhanced Flex mode, which makes taking notes or browsing materials during a meeting easy no matter where the user may be. The device’s specially engineered S Pen lets users drag and drop faster and with more accuracy, and even take handwritten notes for a truly seamless working experience.
On the other hand, one of the stand-out features of the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G is its iconic, compact design that allows the smartphone to fit comfortably in one hand. In order to make the user’s experience more convenient, Samsung worked hard to refine any unnecessary elements. For example, the device’s camera and Cover Screen are arranged in one single area to avoid any camera protrusion for a sleeker look.
Along with this change, the Galaxy Z Flip3 5G’s Cover Screen is four times larger than its predecessor and comes with a range of additional functionalities. Users can check their alarms, control playlists, record a voice memo, set timers, and even snap a photo– all when the device is folded.
Samsung designed the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G and Galaxy Z Flip3 5G to fulfill every need of the modern user for both work and entertainment so that there is no need to compromise. The Galaxy Z Fold3 5G retails at Php 87,990 SRP for 256GB (Phantom Black, Phantom Silver, and online-exclusive Phantom Green) and Php 95,990 for the 512GB variant (Phantom Black, Phantom Green, and online-exclusive Phantom Silver). The Galaxy Z Flip3 5G, on the other hand, is available at Php 52,990 SRP for the 128GB variant and Php 56,990 SRP for the 256GB variant, all available in Cream, Green, Lavender, and Phantom Black colorways.

Samsung confirms February launch event for the Galaxy S22 series
The Korean giant promises a “noteworthy” Galaxy S22 Ultra.
As has been widely speculated, Samsung is preparing for a flagship phone announcement event next month. TM Roh, the President and Head of MX Business for Samsung Electronics, authored a fascinating blog post today, which was accompanied by the teaser video you can see below. While the company hasn’t yet confirmed a specific date for the upcoming Unpacked event,
Roh promises that, at next month’s Unpacked, we’ll get to see “the most noteworthy S series device” Samsung has ever made. Get it? Noteworthy?
All of this appears to be a pretty obvious method of teasing the idea that the Note series, which was supposed to die in 2021, is making a comeback this year-but, not as the Note line. In fact, the Galaxy S22 Ultra has already been speculated to feature a design identical to that of the Galaxy Note20 Ultra (the last Note ever created), as well as a built-in stylus with the lowest touch latency rate ever.
Roh’s blog post concludes with the phrase “Get ready for the ultimate Super experience,” which we believe confirms that the name of the company’s next ultra-high-end smartphone will be the Galaxy S22 Ultra, rather than the S22 Note, as has been speculated at various points in the past.
This phone is supposed to help you “own the night – taking the best and brightest photos and videos you’ve ever captured with a phone,” “dominate the day with power, speed, and tools that can’t be found anywhere,” and “enjoy cutting-edge innovations made possible thanks to the smartest Galaxy experience yet,” whatever that means.
There’s also the promise of feeling good about being a member of the Galaxy ecosystem’s most sustainable ecosystem–hopefully, this doesn’t imply the charging cord is no longer included in the box.
Exynos 2200 with Xclipse GPU, based on AMD is now official
Snapdragon 8 Gen 1’s Adreno GPU lacks support for ray-tracing.
The Exynos 2200, Samsung’s latest flagship processor, was unveiled today, and it will power the Galaxy S22 devices in select territories. The new platform, called Xclipse, is based on the 4nm EUV manufacturing technology and comes with a custom-made GPU.
It’s a “one-of-a-kind hybrid graphics processor” based on the AMD RDNA2 architecture, and it’s the first smartphone chip to offer advanced features like ray tracing and variable rate shading.
Ray tracing is a method of estimating the movement and color of things as light rays bounce off surfaces in order to approximate how light behaves in real life. Realistic effects and immersive graphics are provided by the hardware-accelerated functionality, making playing games that support these features as good as it gets.
Another technology used in PC and console games is variable rate shading. It allows creators to use less shading in regions where the quality of the game will not be harmed, resulting in a faster frame rate and smoother gameplay.
Also, one of the first chips to include Armv9-based CPU cores is the Exynos 2200. The octa-core CPU has a single Cortex-X2 core with a lot of power, three Cortex-A710 cores for efficiency and performance, and four Cortex-A510 cores for power efficiency. The frequency at which Samsung’s chips are clocked has been a secret for a long time.
The upgraded GPU and CPU are kept company by a more powerful NPU. The Exynos 2100’s performance has increased by a factor of two, allowing for more concurrent computations and enhancing overall AI performance.
The Exynos 2200 also has a single camera with a resolution of up to 200 megapixels, 8K video recording, and up to 120Hz or 144Hz for 4K or QHD+ displays.
The newest LPDDR5 memory and UFS 3.1 storage are supported by the chipset. The worldwide navigation system supports all key standards and satellites, and the 5G modem works on both sub-6GHz and mmWave frequencies.
The Exynos 2200 is “now in mass production,” according to Samsung. There’s no word on when the Galaxy S22 series with the chip will be released, but rumors are pointing to February 8 as a possible debut date.
Redmi Note 11 series is launching in Europe on January 26
Price starts at €250.
According to a media source last week, Xiaomi sub-brand Redmi will launch the Redmi Note 11 in Europe for €250. Even though Redmi hasn’t confirmed the report, the company took to social media to promote an event on January 26th, which will mark the Note 11 series’ European premiere.
Xiaomi didn’t identify the area in its posts, but the Note 11 series is already available in numerous territories, including China and India, so we know it’s Europe.
Xiaomi also doesn’t indicate how many smartphones it’ll introduce to Europe next Wednesday, but based on the company’s social media posts, it’s safe to assume we’ll see at least two.
The Redmi Note 11 4G, which was unveiled in November in China, is likely to be the star of the show. The Helio G88 SoC powers it, but the Snapdragon 680 CPU is expected to be included in the global variant.
You’ll receive a 6.5″ 90Hz FullHD+ LCD, Android 11-based MIUI 12.5, a 50MP triple camera, an 8MP selfie camera, stereo speakers, a side-mounted fingerprint reader, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 18W charging if the rest of the specs remain unchanged.
