If you've been waiting on pins and needles for the Samsung Galaxy S22, you don't have to endure the wait much longer. Samsung allegedly pushed out the S22 series from January to February to make room for the delayed Galaxy S21 FE in January. But the first Galaxy Unpacked 2022 event will arrive soon, bringing with it the Galaxy Tab S8 as well as the Galaxy S22, S22 Plus, and S22 Ultra.

Based on leaked info, its flagship phone will combine the S and Note series, with a built-in S Pen slot and a more rectangular design than the S22(+). As for the S22 and S22+, we've heard credible rumors that they will ditch the S21's glasstic design and return to proper glass backs. That'll make them prettier, but also more...

    • Here's everything we know about the new PS5 VR controllers
      von Nicholas Sutrich am Januar 25, 2022 um 9:00 pm

      Best answer: Yes. The new PS5 VR will feature completely redesigned controllers, dubbed the PS VR2 Sense controllers, with better tracking and more functionality than the PSVR's PS Move controllers. New PS5 VR controller: A whole new look Sony is changing everything up with PS5 VR (PS VR2), starting with the controllers themselves. Gone is the wand design of the PS Move. In its stead are controllers that look like an almost perfect mashup of the Valve Index's Knuckles controllers and the Oculus Quest 2's Touch controllers. The only real similarity between these controllers and the PS Move controllers is their elongated handle, making it easy to grip. It also has a wrist strap to keep the controllers from flying away if you were to let go of them. The new ring tracking system is considerably more accurate and offers total freedom of movement. We're looking at a completely different experience outside of all of that, starting with the tracking. The new PS VR2 Sense controller d...

      von Prakhar Khanna am Januar 25, 2022 um 8:00 pm

On the other hand, the Galaxy S22 Ultra appears to be a bit more exciting. While the colorways are largely th...
