The COVID-19 pandemic not only made people practicing social distancing at home but also turned many big technological events into boring daily soaps, as we all watched them while staying at home via digital media.

For example, Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked events unveiled exciting goodies including the current flagship S21 devices, the latest Galaxy A series offerings, and the recent Galaxy Books launch, all we just addressed through YouTube or connected apps.

Apart from Samsung events, CES 2021 (Consumer Electronics Show) which was one of the biggest events in the tech industry also felt like a “saltless dish” as it also held virtually and no one got a chance to witness the best of tech for the previous year.

CES 2022 will be held as an in-person event 

A piece of good news has been surfacing around the corners that tells about the next CES event heading back to its original venue in Las Vegas and will be held as an in-person event in January 2022. Moreover, the gathering will take place from January 5 to January 8, with media roundups between January 3 to January 4.

Meanwhile, before the COVID-19 crisis that popped out in late 2019 and became a pandemic in 2020, CES (2020) was the last major tech event that took place in person. Other events including the 2020 MWC (Mobile World Congress) had also somehow kind of canceled or we can say held virtually.

But as we mentioned above, the next consumer electronic show will be a real event, therefore 1,000 companies including Samsung, LG, Google, Qualcomm, Sony, and many more are set to showcase their best tech offerings.

In this context, Gary Shapiro, the association’s president, and CEO said, “We’re thrilled to return to Las Vegas — home to CES for more than 40 years — and look forward to seeing many new and returning faces,”  said in a release. “Hundreds of executives have told us how much they need CES to meet new and existing customers, find partners, reach media and discover innovation.”

Apart from this, CES 2022 attendees will also be a part of the event but digitally. However, more solid plans about the event will depend on the Coronavirus situation and safety norms from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

What to expect from Samsung in the next CES event?

Well, If we look at the previous event Samsung introduced a bunch of technologies including 5G mmWave communication system, The Frame TV, Bespoke range of home appliances, and more. This implies the next CES event will also focus on these products but in a more advanced way as the tech always changes with time.

However, some rumors are giving an indication about the rollable Galaxy device as it is being one of the most anticipating gadgets from the company that needs to be unveiled, and for that CES 2022 is the best platform to do so.

Besides, this information is just based on rumors and speculations and the real catch will only be witnessed in CES 2022 that is set to happen with a boom for tech enthusiasts.

Galaxy Snapdragon 8 Gen 4

Qualcomm will launch Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 in October this year. The company has recently disclosed that the Snapdragon Summit is scheduled for October 21 to 23. Importantly, Samsung’s Galaxy S25 series will use the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 chipset.

According to Qualcomm, this year’s Snapdragon Summit will be held in Hawaii from October 21 to 23. At the event, the company most likely introduce the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, which will not only power the Galaxy S25 series but also various Android phones in 2025.

Last year, Samsung brought back its own developed Exynos chipset with the S24 and S24 Plus. The Galaxy S24 Ultra shipped exclusively with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. A similar chip diversification is expected next year, while consumers in the USA and Canada will get all Snapdragon models.

Qualcomm’s new custom Oryon CPU cores will feature in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4. This custom CPU architecture will offer robust performance and power efficiency. In addition, it’s expected to be fabricated on 3nm process technology by TSMC Foundry.

New iOS 18 features that Android phones have for years!



Apple iOS 18 will be the biggest upgrade for iPhone users in years. As always, Apple managed to take all the credit for changes it made in the iOS 18, but many of the new features have been available in Android phones for years.

iOS 18 is going to be a big upgrade for Apple iPhone users. However, the features are not so innovative as Android users have had most of them for years. Let’s have a look at the most notable ones!

Homescreen personalization

iOS 18 will enable homescreen customization on iPhone, which was not possible till v17. While Android vendors continued to make homescreen and lockscreen heavily personalizable, Apple realized it too late.

Static app grid is gone, and app icon movement is no longer limited. The iOS 18 also introduces custom color palettes that turn app icons into different shades – a similar approach to Android’s Material You.

Apple Intelligence

Feature-packed Gallery

Android’s Google Photos and Galaxy’s Samsung Gallery are equipped with advanced editing features. Taking inspiration, Apple also made some fruitful changes to its Photos app to uplevel user experience.

iOS 18 improves the search system of Photos app, allowing users to search for details in photos, including numbers, places, and other identifiers. Magic/Object Eraser is also added in the Photos app to remove unwanted objects.

On-device AI

Google introduced Pixel 8 Pro as the first on-device AI-powered smartphone. Later, Samsung launched the Galaxy S24, S24 Plus and S24 Ultra – all are equipped with Gemini Nano AI innovation.

Apple unveiled Apple Intelligence, which is arriving on iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max with iOS 18. The company partnered with OpenAI to fuel ChatGPT in products ranging in iPhone, as well as iPad and Mac lineups.

Apple iOS 18


Google has been criticizing Apple over the lack of RCS messaging in the iMessage app. The iPhone maker was forced by the European Union to adopt RCS messaging innovation, which is debuting with the iOS 18 upgrade.

The integration of RCS tech will allow users to see delivery and read receipts, theoretically typing indicators, and much richer images. Notably, RCS has been available in Android’s Google Messages for several years.

Emoji generator

iOS 18 has a powerful emoji generator functionality, which is better than Android’s emoji kitchen. It lets users generate bespoke emojis with AI in the style of Apple’s existing library of emojis.

Android has an Emoji Kitchen feature, which allows you to create unique stickers. However, the power of artificial intelligence gives an edge to Apple’s version of emoji creator functionality.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 price starts at $1899 in the US, a $100 increase



Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 FE

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 US variant’s price, memory configuration, and colors leaked. The company’s next foldable smartphone will be available in three storage variants (up to 1TB) and three standard color options.

According to Onleaks (via Smartprix), the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 price could start at $1899 in the US. The phone’s 512GB and 1TB variants may cost $2019 and $2259, respectively.

The source also revealed that the Z Fold 6 will be available in Navy, Silver Shadow, and Pink. However, Evleaks yesterday revealed additional information on colorways alongside the upcoming exclusive hues.

Compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 5, all three variants of the Z Fold 6 could be $100 expensive. Foldable phones are already expensive, and another $100 increment will make it harder to prove worthy in challenging markets.

Integration of Galaxy AI and rising prices of Snapdragon chips are the likely reasons. However, the Korean tech giant may introduce introductory offers and trade-in benefits to make a significant reduction in price initially.

Samsung may launch its new foldables on July 10. The Unpacked event could take place in Paris, France. Aside from phones, the Galaxy Watch 7, Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds 3 Pro, and Galaxy Ring will also be launched at the event.
