Everything Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Unpacked event



What’s next for Samsung? All is revealed in New York

Samsung has just wrapped up its latest Galaxy Unpacked event, in New York.

The event saw the release of two new foldable phones, new smartwatches, and an update to the Galaxy Buds Pro.

Taking a look at the Galaxy Z Flip 4, Samsung hasn’t changed the overall design, but new features include the ability to see selfie previews on the cover screen and fast charging.

The Fold also has a new 50-megapixel main camera and a slimmer hinge.

But there’s still a gap when the phone is folded closed, so Samsung hasn’t achieved full foldable flatness just yet.

At a slightly higher cost, there’s the Galaxy Z Fold 4.

This design remains largely the same, but Samsung has made some big changes to the cameras.

It’s available from August 26 a pre-orders are available now.

What’s probably most interesting about this latest product launch is Samsung’s wearables push.

At the Unpacked event, the tech giant finally unveiled its Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.

After serious battery life complaints, the new devices both boast bigger batteries, faster charging, and increased durability.

The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro is the premium version, made for those who love the great outdoors.

Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds 2 Pro have a fresh design.

Coming in at 15 percent smaller than the originals, they have support a 24-bit hi-fi audio over Bluetooth.

Of course, these updates have a higher price tag attached, with the Buds coming in at around 230 U.S. dollars.

Also of note is Samsung’s sustainability push.

The company gave an insight into how it’s incorporating recycled materials into their new offerings.

Recycled fishing nets are now used to make the Z-series foldable phones and the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro.

Jamaal Bowman: TikTok gives free speech for 150 million people



The Congressman says there is too much hysteria around the social media platform

U.S. Congressman Jamaal Bowman says there’s too much hysteria when it comes to social media platform, TikTok.

The Congressman argues the app has given a voice to millions of people, as well as empowering diverse communities.

“Our first Amendment right allows people to speak freely and communicate freely,” Bowman said outside the steps of Capitol Hill. “TikTok as a platform has created a community for free speech, for over 150 million people.”

TikTok is currently set to be banned on government-owned devices, due to concerns over the data it collects.

There are reported links between the app owner, ByteDance, and the Chinese Communist Party.

But Bowman argues all social media platforms have been ‘dishonest’ with the data of their users.

“Let’s not be dishonest with ourselves,” he continued. “Let’s not be racist and xenophobe towards China when it comes to TikTok.

“American companies have done tremendous harm towards American people.”
