So Samsung might give the Galaxy Note series a break in 2021, according to a Reuters report, but the stylus (Samsung calls it an S-Pen, of course), compatible with Galaxy S devices, may well live on. The decision apparently comes due to a drop in demand for high-end phones during the coronavirus pandemic — not to say that Samsung isn’t moving ahead with its foldables, which are even more expensive than the Note series. The company hasn’t yet confirmed these plans.

Samsung’s second flagship series — a giant device with an almost-retro style input pen that slotted into the phone — was ridiculed when it first appeared. It made the word ‘phablet’ mainstream — but I won’t hold that against it because it proved there was a lot of interest in big-screened smartphones with decent battery life. Samsung’s Galaxy S devices grew in size over the years to the point where the Galaxy S20+ and Note 20, with their 6.7-inch and 6.9-inch displays respectively, aren’t all that different. The bigger screens even influenced Apple, and we soon saw the company launch iPhone ‘plus’ models to compete at that size.

Watch the trailer for Studio Ghibli’s first fully CG movie‘Earwig and the Witch’ embodies the spirit of Ghibli movies.

The Morning After

You no longer have to wonder how Studio Ghibli will enter the world of fully computer-generated animation. The first trailer for Earwig and the Witch, which makes its premiere on Japanese broadcaster NHK on December 30th, has now appeared. Unsurprisingly, the clip is in Japanese, but it gives you a sense of how Ghibli will tackle digital art. The movie is set to premiere in North American theaters in early 2021 (provided they’re open, of course) so expect to see a dubbed (or at least subtitled) trailer soon.

Apple’s MagSafe Duo Charger is now available for $129A first-party charger for both your iPhone and Apple Watch.

The Morning After

Apple’s MagSafe Duo charger is finally available from the company’s store for $129. The company announced the charger, which can charge two devices at once, during its October event. Like the iPhone 12 series also announced then, while the device comes with a USB-C to Lightning cable, it doesn’t ship with a USB-C power adapter. Apple recommends using a 20W power adapter for wireless charging up to 11W or a 27W adapter for wireless charging up to 14W — you’ll probably want the latter.
