Samsung will launch three Exynos processors this year

Exynos 800, Exynos 1200, Exynos 2200

Late last year, Samsung pushed heavily for an increased market presence for its Exynos series of chipsets. Instead of keeping the processors for itself, the company started selling the chipsets to other tech makers. Already, a few smartphones brands, like Vivo, have already launched Exynos-powered smartphones. According to a new rumor, Samsung will launch three Exynos processors this year.

Leaked by renowned Samsung leaker Ice Universe, Samsung will launch chipsets in three different series: Exynos 800, Exynos 1200, and Exynos 2200. Additionally, the latter two chipsets will come with AMD GPUs.

According to a previous leak, Samsung will launch the GPUs themselves later this year. Unfortunately, there is no indication when Samsung will launch the actual chipsets. Based solely on the chipsets’ naming scheme, they will likely fill out budget-friendly, midrange, and flagship smartphones.

However, it’s too early to tell which devices will carry them. If this year mimics last year, the company might announce the chipsets late this year and then released early next year. Either way, Samsung is really heating up for an explosive year with all the releases.

Recently, the company already launched the brilliant Galaxy S21 series back in January.

Microsoft plans to buy Discord for US$ 10 million

Still in early talks

Published

on

Throughout the pandemic and post-pandemic world, telecommuting and communications apps have risen in popularity throughout the online world. Though most workers have turned to Zoom or Google Meets, Discord has also gotten quite a boost between gamers and more casual users. Unfortunately, the boost might not be enough. According to a new source, Microsoft is planning to purchase Discord for US$ 10 billion.

Earlier today, VentureBeat reported that the communications platform is already exploring a sale to other companies. However, at the time, the report did not reveal who is in the lead to purchase the company. A frontrunner didn’t take long, though.

According to Bloomberg, Microsoft is the likeliest candidate for a purchase. The company will likely buy the platform out for over US$ 10 billion. The deal is still in its early stages, though.

Based on the same report, Discord can still choose to go public, rather than sell the company outright. Given how early the discussions still are, it might take time before we get a conclusion to the deal.

Despite how the world is starting to treat the pandemic, telecommuting will still be an essential part of the post-pandemic world.

Nokia and Sony have pulled out from MWC 2021

Joining Ericsson

This year, the world is trying to go back to normal. With an impending return to normalcy, formerly delayed tech events are testing the waters for an actual in-person event this year. For example, MWC 2021 has confirmed such an event his year. Unfortunately, the traditional exhibitors have doubts. Nokia and Sony have pulled out from MWC 2021.

Reported by CNet, both companies are participating in the event virtually, as opposed to their usual physical exhibitions. According to both statements, Sony and Nokia are prioritizing the health of both their employees and the event’s attendees.

Though the threat of COVID-19 is slowly waning as the vaccine rolls out all over the world, in-person events are still keeping things safe. For one, MWC 2021 is reportedly limiting attendance and maintaining proper social distancing rules. Of course, doing so isn’t enough to completely stave off the virus without full vaccination rates yet.

Further, tech companies are slowly realizing the economic brilliance of launching their products online. Last year, various brands have upped the ante on how to release products digitally. Apple, for example, created incredibly cinematic launch experiences throughout the year.

Sony and Nokia are joining Ericsson in the online-only party. As the months roll on, who can tell if other brands will follow suit? Last year, more and more tech companies eventually followed suit when a few brands initially pulled out of events.
