Apple, Google and Samsung are all hosting big events this week, making their final big announcements ahead of the holiday season. Apple should give Mac its moment in the limelight. Here is what we expect from Apple:
A new MacBook Pro in 13 and 16 inch versions
Google has already announced its intention to unveil its internal Tensor chip. The new chip will be used to power the new Pixel 6 and a Pro model. The handsets also feature a radical overhaul. The Base 6 will have a matte aluminum finish with a 6.4-inch display, while the Pro will have a brighter polished aluminum finish with a 6.7-inch display. The Pixel 6 also has dual cameras (wide and ultra-wide), while the 6 Pro adds a telephoto zoom. The base Pixel 6 and the bigger, beefier Pixel 6 Pro will mark Google’s return to high-end phones after the Pixel 5’s “hiatus”, with premium glass designs. They should highlight all-day battery life despite supporting the battery-hungry 5G. Google will reveal everything on Tuesday.
We are not sure about Samsung yet. Our suspicion is that it will be a continuation of new phones, smartwatches and foldable headphones, maybe another tablet. The 12-second video invitation posted by the Korean conglomerate doesn’t explicitly reveal anything, but we did see app icons, which could hint that the company is making a software-related announcement. Maybe something about the stable rollout of One UI and Android 12. The event takes place on Wednesday.
