Samsung Galaxy S21

The Galaxy S21 is a new smartphone with high-end specifications. Of the series, the Galaxy S21 is the entry-level model and is cheaper compared to its predecessor at the time of release.

The Galaxy S21 + is based on the base of the Galaxy S21 but only features a larger 6.7-inch screen. Compared to the 6.2-inch screen of the Galaxy S21, not too much of a difference when it comes to the screen.

If we look at the Galaxy S21 Ultra, it is a completely different story. Samsung has provided the Ultra edition with high-end specifications and a larger 6.8-inch screen with the highest resolution.

New design

Compared to its predecessors, the design has been reasonably adjusted. Especially on the back of the smartphone, a new camera island can be found which is incorporated into the side of the smartphone. With the use of metal edges, the camera island is now quite present and will be seen as an eye-catcher of the new smartphone. By processing the edges in the side, the camera runs inwards and connects to the glass of the camera, with which both the camera and the side have become one whole.

The Galaxy S21 features three photo and video sensors: a 12-megapixel main sensor, a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens and a 64-megapixel telephoto lens. The S21 Ultra features a 108-megapixel main sensor, a 10-megapixel wide-angle lens and a 10-megapixel telephoto lens.

More TV series, blockbusters and exclusive original series and films can be found on the new Star part of the Disney + streaming service from 23 February.

Disney + Star offer

In addition to Grey’s Anatomy, Modern Family and Glee titles, a host of new titles are coming to the platform from February 23rd. In total, it concerns 50 TV series, more than 250 films and 4 exclusive Star Originals which can be seen exclusively via the Disney + app. The range will continue to expand in the following months.

Although Disney + is more than a year old, the offer is still quite disappointing. There weren’t really big orginals on the service alone. But that will suddenly change with the Star channel.

With the acquisition of 21st Century Fox in 2019, the company has gained a huge range of content. Much of it comes to Disney +.

The content coming to Start comes from 20th Television, ABC Signature, FX Productions and 20th Century Studios. Disney + Star features the movies and series Deadpool, Grey’s Anatomy, 24, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Modern Family, Prison Break, Planet of the Apes, Devil Wears Prada, Braveheart, Die Hard, Futurama, Homeland and The Americans.

Price up

However, this addition of the content will push the price upwards. Disney + will become 2 euros per month more expensive after February 23. Members who are already members of the streaming service before that date pay the old price of 6.99 euros per month for another 6 months.

The Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X are still difficult to obtain, just as with the PlayStation 5. Stock in 2021 will also remain quite scarce. For example, Amy Hood makes Microsofts chief financial officer, known in a recent discussion with investors.

Xbox Series X stock

According to Amy Hood, the poor availability of the new generation console is mainly due to the high demand and limited supply.

Stock has been limited since the launch of the Xbox Series X and Series S. In small numbers, the stock is replenished at the online web shops. The corona virus certainly does not help when it comes to production capacity.

Amy Hood says the following:

“In gaming, we expect continued strong engagement on the Xbox platform and significant demand for the Xbox Series X and S that will still be constrained by supply.”

In recent months, Xbox Series X sales have generated good numbers. The console is selling well. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has said the following:

The launch of Xbox Series X and Series S was the most successful in our history, with the most devices ever sold in a launch month. Game developers are benefitting, too, as they turn to us to reach more players and scale the games using the power of our cloud. We exceeded $ 2 billion in revenue from third-party titles this quarter for the first time. ”

Smart home is literally translated ‘smart home’ and that is the main goal of a smart home addition. In short, it is automating processes through digital means.

Domotics is a common word that will be used within smart home. Home automation is the merging and combining of different smart home combinations by mainly combining techniques.

Combination of products

By combining many products you develop a smart home. Nowadays there are several products that can communicate with each other. By means of a smart home hub it is possible to combine smart products. An example of a smart home hub are the products of Homey.

The possibilities are vast. It is possible to automate many processes which are normally performed manually. This includes automatically switching on smart lighting, operating the heating based on the last location and activating one irrigation system.

Some scenarios that are possible:

  • Set lighting at fixed times
  • Combining lighting with smart motion sensors

  • Activating the irrigation system in the garden

Honor has released a new smartphone since its sale by Huawei. This concerns the new Honor View 40 5G which has a MediaTek chipset under the hood.

Honor View 40

For Honor, it is the first smartphone since the subsidiary was sold by Huawei. Instead of the well-known HiSilicon Kirin-soc, it is now a chip from MediaTek which will be used.

Due to the split-off from Huawei, the company has the option of providing the smartphones with Google services. The Honor View 40 does not yet have Google services because it has still been developed under the control of Huawei.

The Honor View 40 is equipped with a Dimensity 1000+ chipset from MediaTek. Furthermore, the smartphone has a 6.72-inch OLED screen. The camera module is striking. It features a 50 MP RYYD sensor, 2 megapixel macro lens and 8 MP wide angle. At the front there are two 16 megapixel sensors.

The 4000mAh battery supports fast charging at 66W. Wireless charging is possible with a maximum power of 50W.

Huawei sold Honor last year to a consortium of Chinese investors and a state organization. The Honor View 40 5G has been given a suggested retail price of 456 euros in China.


Huawei has grown enormously in recent times when it comes to smartphones. Especially the P series and the Mate series have been very well received. Since the trade ban with the United States, the company has struggled to stay popular. If we can believe the rumors, Huawei will stop with the P and Mate series. Huawei itself says this is not the case.

Will Huawei stop producing smartphones?

Huawei is bothered by the trade ban. As a result, Huawei may not include Google services on the new devices. Although it has now considerably expanded its own app gallery, consumers seem to be mainly looking for Google Play Store smartphones. In addition to the Google Play Store, Google Maps, YouTube and other Google services are also missing from the smartphone.

The trade ban leaves its mark on the Chinese company. The trade ban is aimed at espionage by the Chinese company. In addition to the restriction on Google services, the company also does not have the option to use hardware from American soil.

Whether Huawei will really stop selling the smartphones is as yet unclear. But the rumors are still quite present.

Bloomberg writes, based on sources, that the device will be much more expensive than rival VR headsets, with a price range of up to $ 1000.

As the internal strength of the VR headset, there is probably a new chip that is more powerful than the M1 Apple Silicon processors. Compared to the current products on the market, the display has a much higher resolution and has a built-in fan.

For the time being, more information about the unveiling of the new product is unclear.
