Tune in to Samsung's CES keynote at 9:30PM ET

  Tune in to Samsung's CES keynote at 9:30PM ET Samsung had an extremely busy CES before the show even officially started, having revealed severalTVs (including 8Kdisplays), a 4K Chromebook and lite versions of the Galaxy S10 and Note 10. But it's not quite done yet, as it's set to hold a press conference Monday evening. It'll surely offer a closer look at those TVs and its new laptops during the event, as well as perhaps its Neon 'artificial human' project. In its blog post regarding the keynote, Samsung posed a question it'll probably delve into as well: "How will seamlessly connected devices enabled by AI, cutting-edge semi-conductor chipsets and 5G present new experiences and change our lives?"Samsung has

Samsung says the Galaxy Z Flip will be back in stock on Friday .
Last week Samsung announced and almost immediately released its foldable Galaxy Z Flip, but only in "limited" quantities that dried up almost as soon as they appeared, unless you spot one in a store somewhere. Now Samsung says that tomorrow, on February 21st it will make more of the $1,380 devices available online, coincidentally around the same time pre-orders will begin for its flagship lineup of phones that includes higher specs and 5G across the Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra. After a week of availability, if you were hoping to get a Galaxy Z Flip there may be reasons you're still optimistic about its potential or even more wary of its risks.
