Samsung schedules another Unpacked event for September 23

Samsung has had a pretty busy go of things as of late, but that doesn’t mean it’s done introducing phones for the year. An invitation for a “Samsung Galaxy Unpacked for Every Fan” has gone out, revealing the hardware maker still has something up its sleeve.Scheduled for September 23, the event figures to mark the debut of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. First spied on Verizon’s website by Android Police, it looks to be a less expensive approach to the Galaxy S20 experience.This would not mark the first time Samsung has taken this approach to its flagship series of phones. In the past, however, they were known as “Lite” versions.The hardware details, which have not been confirmed, are rumored to include the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor but with potentially less memory.The screen size may actually come in larger than in the standard model, and retain the same 120Hz refresh rate.According to video renders found on the Verizon website, the back of the phone will retain three cameras. Reportedly, it will feature an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with 3X zoom instead of the 48-megapixel crop/zoom sensor of the original.With about one week to go before the official announcement we might not be surprised if more details surface. Given the phone is already in Verizon’s system and seemingly ready to sell, availability shouldn’t be very far off.Samsung’s invitation shows a mint green and dark blue phone so we suspect those are two of the color options for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Fan Edition. Others are anticipated to include red and pink; choices may vary by carrier.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 is one of the most gorgeous phones on the market. Built from metal and glass, it’s sleek and shiny, but it can be a bit slippery.If you’re worried about getting scratches and scuffs on your beloved phone, you’ll want to protect it with a case. Here, we’ve gathered up some of the best cases for the Samsung Galaxy S20. Some are fashionable, others are ultra-thin, and others are tough and rugged.Best Samsung Galaxy S20 CasesCase-Mate Tough GrooveDon’t be fooled by the flashy colors.

It’ll survive big drops without a breaking a sweat; the lanyard attachment keeps it close at hand. $40 at CatalystGear4 BatterseaThis unassuming case is on the thinner side but it’s got drop protection up to 16 feet. The secret is in the D3O tucked along the edges. We like the textured back as it provides just enough grip to make sure you don’t let it go. $50 at ZAGGGriffin Survivor StrongSlim and tapered, the case fits your hand nicely, standing up to scratches and scuffing.

An extra layer that lets you tumble from up to 13 feet and won’t complain about scrapes, that is. Pick from four colors, each of which is subtle and understated. $40 at SpeckSpigen Slim ArmorFlexible, thin, and easy to grip, you’ll barely notice it’s there.

LG Wing arrives with swiveling two-screen experience

LG on Monday announced its first handset under the “Explorer Project”, the LG Wing. And just as the rumors told us, it features a unique two-screen experience.Currently there are two main ways that phone makers are working with dual displays. There’s the “two phone screens that make a tablet screen” approach and then there’s the “flip phone” design that opens to reveal a full-screen experience. The LG Wing is neither of those.The LG Wing features a 6.8-inch full HD OLED main display that swivels up to reveal a secondary 3.9-inch screen underneath. Resembling a Tetris T-block, it leads to unique use cases.The LG Wing is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor with 8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB storage options. A microSD expansion card slot allows for external media.The rear houses a 64-megapixel main camera, accompanied by a 12-megapixel wide-angle and 13-megapixel wide-angle camera. One is mounting in standard portrait orientation while the other is rotated 90 degrees. A 32-megapixel camera pops out for selfies on the front side of the phone.The hinge mechanism in LG WING has proven to be reliable even after 200,000 swivels – this averages out to about 100 motions every day for five years.Given its unique design, the LG Wing allows for some interesting camera modes. Grip Mode ignores accidental touches while recording video when the phone is opened. Gimbal Motion Camera Mode adds a joystick, lock, and follow controls on the secondary display.The design also allows for watching full-screen video content on the big display while messaging, commenting, and other features are available on the secondary screen.Other prominent features in the LG Wing include a 4,000mAh battery with wireless and Quick Charge 4.0 and an IP54 rating against dust and water.The LG Wing will be offered in Aurora Gray and Illusion Sky when it goes on sale. Pricing and exact availability has yet to be revealed. With that said, Verizon will have first dibs on the unique phone with AT&T, T-Mobile, and others following later.
