The Samsung Galaxy S23 could get a small but important screen upgrade

If you were hoping the Samsung Galaxy S23 line would have significantly better screens than the Samsung Galaxy S22 series then you’re probably going to be out of luck, as all signs suggest they’ll be almost identical – but there could be some small differences which might have a big impact.

According to @TheGalox_ – a leaker with a reasonable track record – the Samsung Galaxy S23, S23 Plus and Galaxy S23 Ultra will have screens that are the same size, resolution, and display type as their predecessors.

So the Samsung Galaxy S23 will reportedly have a 6.1-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED screen, while the S23 Plus is said to have a 6.6-inch FHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display, and the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is said to have a 6.8-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED screen.

Where we might see changes, however, is in the screen refresh rates – although not the maximum refresh rates. All three phones apparently top out at 120Hz, just like their predecessors, and the Galaxy S23 Ultra is said to be able to get as low as 1Hz, which again is the same as the current model.

The Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus, though, might have minimum refresh rates of 24Hz, which is half the 48Hz figure the S22 and Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus can manage. In fact, the source says there’s a chance they’ll even be able to go as low as 10Hz.

Having a lower minimum refresh rate means that when a phone is doing things that don’t require a high refresh rate they’ll be using less battery, which would in turn mean they should last longer between charges.

We’ve previously heard that these two phones might have slightly bigger batteries than their predecessors too, so between that and the refresh rate tweaks we could be looking at significant battery life improvements – assuming, that is, that this information proves to be accurate.

Analysis: don’t count on refresh rate improvements

While we’re hopeful that this refresh rate leak is accurate, another recent leak – this time from @AhmedQwaider888 – contradicts it, pointing, as @TheGalox does, to the same screen size, resolution and display tech, but with a minimum refresh rate of 48Hz for the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S23 Plus, just like their predecessors.

It’s worth noting that this source doesn’t have quite as much of a track record yet as @TheGalox, but they could still be right.

One thing is almost for sure – not much else about these screens is likely to change, other than perhaps the brightness, with previous leaks also pointing to the same sizes and resolutions as the current models.

We should find out exactly what these displays are capable of soon though, as the Samsung Galaxy S23 line is set to be announced in early February, ahead of many of the other most anticipated phones of 2023.

Android 12 will bring the end of third-party share menus

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet. One of Android 12 's biggest highlights is the new Material You design language, which brings major changes to nearly every key UI component. Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another. It is even possible to completely bypass the official Android Sharesheet by setting an app like Sharedr as the default Sharesheet. In addition to providing a more consistent experience, Sharedr

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu
