The Mountain View giant Google has its own prepaid wireless carrier Google Fi that provides telephone calls, SMS, and mobile broadband using cellular networks and Wi-Fi. Recently, Google rebranded this service, which includes a name change, additional perks, extended support, a redesigned app, a newer logo, and better family plans. This rebranding will benefit Galaxy Watch users as well, so, let’s know more about it. 

Informatively, from now on, Google Fi service will be known as Google Fi Wireless, which justifies its use as well. About its logo, the change is with an F made up of dots and is pills with the company’s colors. Besides these changes, the most beneficial thing is its new “Simply Unlimited” plan. In this new plan, we no longer need to pay additional charges for using our Galaxy Watch, as it has expanded the support to smartwatches. 

The good thing is, it supports Galaxy Watches as well, along with their own Pixel Watch. However, it only supports the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Pro devices currently. For this Simply Unlimited plan, we should spend $80 per month, and we will get two or four lines, get unlimited data, calls, and texts, and 5GB of hotspot tethering. It also offers all the family essentials one needs to stay connected with their family & friends. 

Apart from these, the application has also been redesigned that mainly focuses on digital safety controls. Now, it became easier to limit their child can only get texts and calls from truncated numbers. We can also add new members to it by using the people switcher and the app card. The most amazing thing is, Google is letting you try out this service for seven days without any cost. So, you can decide to join after experiencing it.

Galaxy Watch 7 Could Powered By Exynos W1000 chip

Published

on


Samsung’s next-generation Galaxy Watch 7 is in an actively developing phase and is expected to introduce a new naming system for Galaxy smartwatch processors. 

Initially, Samsung switched to WearOS with the Galaxy Watch 4, powered by the Exynos W920 chip. Since then, the giant has also changed the naming scheme for their smartwatch processors. The same chipset, ‘Exynos W920, carried over to the next Galaxy Watch 5 lineup. 

The current Galaxy Watch 6 is powered by an upgraded chipset named the Exynos W930, and it is expected that this will carry over to the next-generation Galaxy Watch 7 series as well. Recent reports suggest that an Exynos chip, likely to be named W1000, will power the Galaxy Watch 7. Although this naming scheme could be suitable, the key point is that it would better convince consumers that the new chip is a major upgrade as compared to the previous chip. 

Although the model number for this new iteration is yet to come into existence, and usually the simple word is just not a part of the Korean giant, it will be interesting to see what turn this report will take in the future.. 

On the other hand, previous leaks already revealed the forthcoming Galaxy Watch 7 could offer three variants, including standard, classic, and pro, with hints at monster battery life and more. It is also supposed to be launched at the Galaxy Unpacked event in early July 2024.

Île-de-France Mobilités & Samsung Expand Transport Tickets On Galaxy Watches

Île-de-France Mobilités is in the phase of modernizing transport tickets and is stepping up its efforts to dematerialize them. 

This includes new ticket options, pricing, effortless ways to buy tickets online or directly by phone, and updating station equipment to make using these new options smoother. Île-de-France Mobilités dematerialized ticketing solutions are used more and more every month and are now the majority in use. 

The aim behind this is just the dematerialization of ticketing and the generalization of this use, which has less environmental impact as compared to magnetic tickets. 

Regarding this president of Île-de-France Mobilités and the Île-de-France Region, Valérie Pécresse stated, “The generalization of this service, in partnership with Samsung, is in line with our dematerialization policy initiated in 2016: making the lives of Ile-de-France users simpler, more practical, and more in tune with our times. We will continue to invest and increase our efforts in this direction.” 

Back in November 2023, a few testers were able, during a developing phase, to use their Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 lineup as well as newer models to validate their transport tickets. The feedback was positive, highlighting simplicity, fluidity, and the speed of using the service. 

Although, since 2019, the Korean giant has been a partner of Île-de-France Mobilités to provide solutions for dematerializing transport tickets to all Ile-de-France residents on their smartphones. Now users can use their Galaxy smartphone for public transport in Île-de-France; this includes validating tickets on a terminal and buying or even reloading them with Samsung Pay. 

The two players are going further with this new deployment, which will permit you to buy tickets from a smartphone and validate them just with a flick of the wrist with a connected watch, even in the scenario where it is turned off. This step appears as a move forward to the modernization of Ile-de-France ticketing in a simple way, especially for scenarios when you get late.
