Product Roundup: Summarizing releases from Apple, Google, and Samsung

If you didn’t have time to watch, here’s a little recap.

Apple Unleashed focused largely on music and MacBooks:

  • The new Voice Plan ($4.99/month) uses Siri to access Apple Music songs, playlists, and stations across all Apple devices.
  • The sweat- and water-resistant AirPods 3 feature spatial audio ($179).
  • There are 2 new MacBook Pros: the 14-inch for $1,999 and the 16-inch for $2,499 (neither has a Touch Bar, but ports are back!)

Google had kind of a disastrous Pixel 6 event…

… considering its store crashed immediately. Still, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro have some cool features, including:

  • Google’s new Tensor processor, which uses machine learning for better speech recognition, translations, and photos.
  • A 50-megapixel camera and an ultra-wide camera. Other features include face unblur and a magic eraser to remove photobombers.
  • Especially cool is Google’s Real Tone tech, which takes better photos of people with darker skin tones.

Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked Part 2…

… showed off the Bespoke edition for the Galaxy X Flip 3 foldable phone and the Galaxy Watch 4.

  • The Bespoke phone ($1,099) will come in 49 color combinations.
  • The Galaxy Watch 4 ($199+) will get a foxy limited edition collab with French-Japanese fashion/music label ​​Maison Kitsuné.
  • Other Watch features include live wallpaper, new gestures, and better fall detection.
