August 5 is Samsungu2019s turn to enter the uncanny valley of live virtual product launches. As the company prepares to take the stage in its native South Korea to launch the Galaxy Note S20. The companyu2019s new smartphone chief TM Roh addressed in a new blog post what a strange time it is to be setting up for a massive product launch, noting, u201cAs leaders of the tech industry, we have a special responsibility u2013 and now a true sense of urgency u2013 to help society continue to move forward. So many people are counting on us to give them new ways to communicate, new ways to work, and new ways to connect.u201dn

Rohu2019s tenure in the companyu2019s top mobile spot has been defined by the presence of COVID-19, having started the position back in January. Itu2019s understandable that such an address is peppered by references to the pandemic. Next month, Samsung will have the opportunity to define its own virtual presence, following in the footsteps of Microsoft and Apple, who pulled of their respective developer events with varying success. n

Samsung is apparently going big for its moment in the spotlight. The executive is promising the launch of five new u201cpoweru201d devices.

n

u201cThese devices deliver on our vision to be the innovator of new mobile experiences that flow seamlessly and continuously wherever we go,u201d Roh writes. u201cThey combine power with seamless functionality, whether youu2019re at work or play, at home or away. In the Next Normal, you will be empowered to live life to the fullest with these devices in your hand (and in your ears, and on your wrist).u201dn

That last parenthetical offers some insight into what weu2019ll be seeing besides the expected phablet launch, likely pointing to new versions of the Galaxy Buds and a new entry into Samsungu2019s Galaxy Watch line. For the former, at least, Iu2019m hoping for a new premium tier designed to compete directly with Appleu2019s AirPods Pro and Sonyu2019s fine fully wireless buds. Another smart guess is the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Roh makes multiple references to foldables in the message, along with 5G, which likely points to more insight into whatu2019s coming August 5. n”,”protected”:false,”excerpt”:”rendered”:”

As Zoom and Microsoft and Google hammer it out for video-chat hegemony, startups are developing apps and services that either add on or compete with the major players.n

There hasn’t been enough activity — yet — to call it a boom, but there’s enough going on to warrant our attention. Call it a boomlet, if you will, of startups looking to ride the wave of demand that video-conferencing has seen during the COVID-19 pandemic.n

The big players are not sitting still. Zoom has spent lots of 2020 on platform security after a surge in popularity exposed some frayed ends. Google has been working to make Meet, its own video-chat service, better and easier to find. And Microsoft has been hammering Teams’s abilities into stronger form as it uses the same product to fend off both Slack and Zoom, which is a tall order.n

""Other giants are getting into the mix. Reliance Jio, the Indian telecom subsidiary of megacorp Reliance, recently launched JioMeet, which has turned heads for looking rather similar to Zoom. It also quickly raced to millions of downloads. (That Google just put billions into JioMeet’s parent is an odd twist in the video-chatting wars; Google has effectively helped fund a competitor in the country, it appears.)n

TechCrunch’s parent company, Verizon, recently bought BlueJeans, giving the American telecom company its own video chatting service. (It’s also eyeing the Indian market.)n

But that’s only part of the action. More recently we’ve seen interesting rounds for video-chat software startups Macrou00a0and Mmhmm. And we’ve seen money go into companies like Daily.co, which want to let any company bake video-chatting capabilities into their service. And Y Combinator-backed Sidekick has been in the press lately, after building a hardware solution in mind for today’s remote workers who need video comms.n

An upstart boomlet, then, amid a war of the majors. But should we have expected anything less from the huge wave of demand that COVID-19 kicked off? Zoom was growing quickly before the pandemic. Now the public company and a host of rivals, big and small, all want a larger slice of an expanding pie.n

Video-conferencing startupsn

The two most interesting recent venture rounds for video-conferencing startups are those belonging to Mmhmm and Macro.

I'm a 50 year old PLC programmer from Burnley, UK. I severed my time as an electrician in the baking industry and soon got involved with the up and coming technology of PLC's. Initially this was all based in the Uk but as the years went by I have gradually worked my way around the globe. At first it was mainly Mitsubishi with a bit of Modicon thrown in but these days the industry leaders seem to be the Allen Bradley range of PLC and HMI’s.
