That means Apple will have to fight even harder to win over new iPhone owners. Samsung, for its part, made Apple’s job a little easier by announcing its flagship Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4 at their standard prices of $1,800 and $1,000, respectively, earlier this month. It also raised the prices of its Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro by $30 apiece.

However, the Pixel Buds have no enhanced audio codec support, which may be important if you’re convinced it makes a big difference. I personally think it makes only a slight difference with this class of earbuds, which may have a premium price tag but aren’t high-end.   

The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are equipped with two-way drivers (10mm woofer, 5.3mm tweeter), which is nice, and three microphones, two of which are beam-forming for voice calls. I paired them with a Galaxy Z Flip 3, iPhone 13 Pro and Google Pixel 4 XL and streamed music using Qobuz. I also streamed some movies from Google Play and Netflix.

Many TVs also have a headphone output, which the Vizio lacks, but you can pair a set of Bluetooth headphones — or another Bluetooth device, like a speaker — with the MQX.

Among the best Galaxy Z Fold 4 deals and Z Flip 4 sales are some stellar offers available direct at Samsung, where you can get as much as $1,000 off your next upgrade by handing over your old phone. It’s also offering a free storage upgrade for those who preorder, free Samsung store credit, as well as some tempting bundle deals that include other new Samsung products like the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. Carriers and third-party retailers have some attractive deals, too.

No big LCD screen or console full of tech, just a central dinner plate speedo embedded with a small, round LCD, flanked by a few narrow futuristic buttons that I think are the only misstep in design.

In the meantime we have rumors and questions: How will the iPhone 14 stack up against its predecessor, the iPhone 13? How much better will the cameras get? Will the iPhone 14 get more expensive? And what’s the deal with the notch anyway — is this the year of the no-notch iPhone? We’ve sorted through the rumors to find some answers, or at the very least, form a better idea of what may feature on Apple’s 2022 flagship phone. To be clear, none of these specs or features have been confirmed by Apple.

Apple’s new iPhone 14 line is expected to have its big reveal at the company’s “Far Out” event on Sept. 7. This is where the 2022 iPhone series is expected to launch, and rumors further point to the iPhone 14 getting a Sept. 16 release date. But of course, nothing is official just yet.
