The Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE) was released a little over 6-months ago, so it won’t be a surprise if the Galaxy S21 version is set for release later this year. To make this the most affordable Galaxy S20 in the lineup, it will most likely get a flat display with Full HD resolution, along with a plastic back in various colors and IP68 dust / water protection. The SIM card slot might be relocated to the bottom, which no longer has a 3.5mm audio jack.
Want more screen real estate without having to lug around a large laptop? If so, then meet the Samsung Blade Bezel. Its main highlight is display has almost no bezel, thanks to a claimed 93% screen-to-body ratio. This is made possible with a new type of Samsung OLED display that incorporates an under-display camera, enabling the panel itself to measure in at just 1mm, while weighing a svelte 130g.
During the Samsung Unpacked event, the company’s next-generation earbuds were unveiled, the Galaxy Buds Pro. Featuring immersive sound, excellent call quality, intelligent Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and enhanced connectivity across your devices. Today, special cases modeled after the Anycall SGH-T100 and the SGH-E700 from the early 2000s were announced, but unfortunately, both of them are only available at select locations in South Korea until January 31st.

Samsung has not only released several smartphones with advanced display technologies, like the Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip, but they’re still developing new ones. Designer Pranab P Kumar gives us a preview of one such device, called the Galaxy Stick, and it has a slide-out OLED display. When not in use, the display is hidden inside the mobile phone’s frame and at the push of a button, it slides out. There’s a smaller secondary touchscreen for notifications and the fingerprint scanner.
Holographic displays have been around for quite some time, and it’s basically one that utilizes light diffraction to create a virtual three-dimensional image. Unlike standard 3D displays, they do not require you to wear any special glasses or external equipment to see the image. Samsung has taken this to the next level with their slim-panel holographic 4K display prototype. This cutting edge model can be viewed from various angles and outputs images in 4K resolution.
