The Fold 6 is rumored to be getting a makeover, with a slimmer, lighter design and a tweaked aspect ratio. Meanwhile, the Flip might be flipping out with a brighter screen and a beefier battery.

As reported by TechCrunch, Samsung’s commitment to foldables has “changed a lot of minds over the last several years,” proving that these flexible phones are here to stay.

Galaxy AI: The buzzword that keeps on buzzing

Get ready for a healthy dose of AI talk.

Samsung’s likely to showcase some nifty new camera features and maybe even spill the beans on how Galaxy AI will stand out from the crowd of Gemini-powered Android devices.

Will we see a translation feature for WhatsApp? Only time will tell!

Well, it’s time for Samsung to put a ring on it – literally.

We’re expecting concrete details on this new wearable, including a release date and price. Rumor has it we’re looking at around $300, putting it in the same ballpark as the Oura Ring.
