Three out of four Samsung phones shipped worldwide were Galaxy A models last year, according to research firm Strategy Analytics. Not a Galaxy S, and certainly not a Galaxy Fold, Flip, or Note.
This explains why Samsung held an Unpacked event dedicated to the mid-range Galaxy A series. Understandably, these phones aren’t as iconic, impressive, or expensive as Samsung’s other family of devices – but they could be crucial to the company’s bottom line.
Although we did not obtain a price for the Galaxy A52, Galaxy A52 5G or Galaxy A72, Samsung has revealed the prices in the UK, so that we can at least estimate how much they might cost. The Galaxy A52 5G will cost £ 399, around $ 465 before taxes, while the Galaxy A72 will cost £ 419 (around $ 490).
The Galaxy A52 5G is slightly larger than last year’s A51, with a larger 6.5-inch screen and a 4,500mAh battery. There’s also a quad-camera system on the rear, versus three sensors on the A51, which includes a 64-megapixel main sensor with optical image stabilization. The notable specification, however, is the phone’s 120Hz display. It’s a significant upgrade that could help the A52 5G stand out from the competition.
This competition will likely include the also announced Galaxy A72, which shares a lot, both aesthetically and in terms of features, with its sibling. The main differences are a slightly larger 6.7-inch screen and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens with 3X optical zoom instead of a macro shooter.
This mid-range push is significant for Samsung. It was recently announced that chip shortages, the perpetual technological history of the pandemic, affect plans to launch a new Galaxy Note later this year. The company may have to sell a ton of A-series phones to make up for a flagship no-show.
Do you remember Justin Long? It is now shilling for PCs.
Intel, keen to combat the overwhelmingly positive reaction to Apple’s (very fast!) M1 chips, has triggered a set of attack announcements starring Justin Long, the former star of Apple’s 2002 “I’m a Mac” commercials – a benchmark that will divide audiences between the generation that remembers the originals (and Long) and those that don’t .
Scientists use this process to study the outside factors that affect the growth of a fetus.
In a study published Wednesday in Nature, a team of researchers from Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel say they have successfully cultured over 1,000 mouse embryos for six days using a process that involves mechanical apparatus.
It is a two-part system that consists of an incubator and a ventilation system. Each of the embryos floats in a bottle filled with a special liquid loaded with nutrients. A wheel gently spins the mice so that they do not attach themselves to the wall of their temporary home. This prevents the embryos from deforming and subsequently dying. Meanwhile, the attached ventilator provides the mice with oxygen while maintaining the flow and pressure of their surroundings.
It takes about 20 days for a mouse to make a gesture to the point where it can survive outside the womb. So far, the mechanical uterus can support mice for 11 days of growth.

It also extends to Amazon workers in the United States.
Amazon’s app-based telehealth service is expanding to more businesses around Seattle starting today. with the online retailer planning further expansion across the United States later this summer. It fits perfectly with the launch of Amazon Pharmacy last fall.
In addition to the usual video or text diagnosis with nurses or doctors, Amazon Care is differentiated by the ability to send someone to your home for in-person assistance. They could, for example, administer vaccines, draw blood or provide a more precise diagnosis. Care’s in-person service will expand to Washington, DC, Baltimore and other cities in the coming months.
More new updates for the standard iPad and iPad mini.
According to Bloomberg, the next additions to the iPad Pro series will benefit from a bunch of improvements and tweaks, including upgraded processors that are described as “on par” with the M1 ARM chip that Apple is putting inside. Macs. You can also get upgraded cameras and Mini LED technology on at least one model to help improve its brightness and contrast ratios. Oh, and Thunderbolt connectivity (via USB-C), capable of faster data transmission.
If you’re waiting for cheaper iPad updates, the same report says Apple will launch a thinner, lighter iPad aimed at students, as well as an iPad Mini with a screen larger than the current 7-inch screen. , 9 inches.
