We've already seen the Samsung Galaxy Spica I5700 before but now it's finally official. Samsung has just unveiled their latest Android powered smartphone and it's looking exactly like we imagined. The Galaxy Spica packs a 800 MHz processor which we're going to assume is like the Moment's, a 3.2 inch 320x480 capacitive touchscreen, and a 3 megapixel camera. One fun feature, the Galaxy Spica will be the first Android smartphone to support DivX videos.
The Samsung Galaxy Spica is already available in Europe and the CIS and will be released in the Middle East and Asia at a later date. Looks like it'll follow in the Galaxy's footsteps and not be available in the US. Oh well, guess the Samsung Behold II will have to do!
The Galaxy Watch 4 continues to prove to be the smoothest and most capable Android smartwatch to date, but the app experience is still lagging. My father golfed with my Galaxy Watch 4, and it only highlighted the divide.
These new phones aren't cheap. The new iPhone 13 Pro Max with 1TB of storage is priced at $1,599. That's nearly the same price as the Samsung Z Fold 3 with 256GB of storage, priced at $1,799. So instead of buying those things, here's a list of all the things you could buy.
Whether in the shape of a smaller footprint or a foldable form factor, two of the smartphone industry's giants see value in smaller phones. I think it's time for Google to give us a more petite Pixel again, perhaps with the 6a series?
