The Samsung Galaxy S23 launch date just got confirmed by Samsung itself

We've had months of speculation around a potential launch date for the Samsung Galaxy S23, but it would seem that we can now confidently circle a date in our 2023 calendar for the big reveal: Wednesday, February 1.

Samsung hasn't come out and said that date specifically, but it did (via SamMobile) post a Galaxy Unpacked teaser for February 1 on its Colombian site. We can't find the teaser at the time of writing, so it's either been pulled or we're not very good at searching through the Samsung Colombia portal.

While not official official, this is almost official. Considering it matches up with previous rumors from reliable sources that pointed to the same date, we'd say it's pretty much certain that February 1 will be the date for the big reveal.

Rumors, mongered

When Samsung does decide to get around to unveiling its latest batch of flagships, it's unlikely to have too many surprises for us, considering how extensive the leaks have been for the Galaxy S23, the Galaxy S23 Plus and the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

In terms of design, it would seem that all three handsets in the series are going to follow the lead of the Ultra model, with raised camera lenses on the back. We've also been given an early look at the colors the phones are going to be available in.

There's been plenty of talk around camera upgrades too, especially when it comes to the Ultra model. Photos and videos taken in both good and poor lighting conditions should be better than ever if the rumors turn out to be true.

Analysis: Samsung strikes back

When it comes to smartphone launches from high profile tech giants, we tend to focus on the iPhone from Apple, the Pixel from Google, and the Galaxy S from Samsung – but only one of those three handsets gets launched at the start of the year.

That puts Samsung in a different position to Apple and Google. You could say the iPhone 14 and the Pixel 7 were competing directly against each other, because they were launched around the same time (September and October respectively). By the time the iPhone 14 launched though, the Samsung Galaxy S22 was already seven months old.

One way of looking at it is that Samsung is always half a year ahead of its big name competitors; another perspective is that it's always half a year behind. The strategy does at least mean Samsung can get plenty of attention for its flagship phones, independently of whatever Apple and Google are doing.

We're seeing the Galaxy S23 launch as Samsung striking back at what other phone makers did last year, as well as setting the pace for 2023. The next question is just how much of an upgrade over the Galaxy S22 handsets are we going to see.

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
