Samsung has reportedly started mass producing the Galaxy S22 series

Samsung is also said to be pushing down the prices of the phones.

What you need to know

  • The Samsung Galaxy S22 series has reportedly entered mass production.
  • Production for key internal parts of the phone apparently started in late October at Samsung's factories in Asia.
  • Samsung is likely launching the upcoming flagship phone early next year.

Samsung has reportedly kicked off mass production for the Galaxy S22 series in preparation for its upcoming launch early next year, corroborating previous rumors suggesting that the phone will debut in January (or February).

According to WinFuture, Samsung began mass producing the flex cables that connect the phone's circuit boards in the middle of last week. In addition, the company is said to have increased production at its Asian factories to tens of thousands of units.

The report also noted some issues with achieving that production rate, although these were nothing out of the ordinary. Production for all variants of the Galaxy S22 and S22+ is said to be in full swing while the Galaxy S22 Ultra's production appears to be focused on the U.S. variant.

While there have been conflicting rumors about the possible unveiling of the Galaxy S22 series, the general consensus is that the phone will most likely be available in early 2022. The start of mass production three months before the phone's expected debut is also consistent with Samsung's recent timeline.

The latest rumor should provide some reassurance to Samsung fans that the Galaxy S22 is still on track, despite the global chip shortage that has impacted many OEMs other than Samsung. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, for example, has been discontinued in India, possibly due to the same component scarcity.

Samsung is also expected to lower the prices of the Galaxy S22 series, especially since its debut is expected to follow the announcement of the Galaxy S21 FE. Here's hoping that the upcoming flagship device will be available in sufficient quantities unlike the other best Android phones released this year such as the Google Pixel 6 Pro.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
