 MARCO LANCASTER SEPTEMBER 25, 2020 The market for smart wearables is becoming really competitive this year. Apparently, this niche of devices is finally becoming mainstream achieving a huge amount of users across different pricing segments. We saw the arrival of multiple companies in this segment, while others are focusing on expanding their business to keep a good margin of users. Worth noting, that the market of wearables comprising smartwatches, smart bands, and even TWS hearables was one of the few segments to not suffer a great impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. Nubia recently released its Nubia Watch on Kickstarter and the campaign was quite successful, the company now announced that backers will be getting their units on October 8.

 MARCO LANCASTER SEPTEMBER 25, 2020 Google is gearing up to unveil its next big thing for Android smartphones on September 30. As usual, there aren’t many secrets left and we already know pretty much everything we can expect in that event. The company will unveil the next-gen Pixel 5 and the Pixel 4a 5G, as the name suggests the fifth-gen network-ready version of its 2020 mid-range phone. The device’s specifications are quite similar, but still, the Pixel 5 is the company’s 2020 “flagship” and for that reason, will be priced at least $200 above the Pixel 4a 5G. Google already confirmed the pricing of the Pixel 4a, now we’re getting a confirmation of the price of the Pixel 5 and it’s not affordable. According to leakster Jon Prosser, the Goog...

 MARCO LANCASTER SEPTEMBER 25, 2020 We can take 2019 as the year that kicked a new trend of foldable smartphones. Until now, devices in this segment are still niche handsets due to their elevated price tags, but this will change in the future. Samsung and Huawei were the first players in this segment, with Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X, respectively. Both devices were announced at Mobile World Congress 2019 but only reached the market several months later. Samsung already unveiled a ton of foldable smartphones after the original Fold and pretty much has the segment under its belt? The reason? The only company that could compete with them in 2019, had a ban to deal with. The US government has pretty much buried Huawei’s intentions of releasin...
