Samsung usually wraps up the year by launching two smartwatches. Our expectation for this year was on this, we expected to see Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Watch 5 Classic models. Surprisingly, a Pro variant is also coming. A published report shows that the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro will be released this year. The first features of the watch are among the ones that have been revealed with the same report.
A published report shows that this year we will see another smartwatch from Samsung with the model name SM-R925. This watch, which will probably be called Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, is expected to blend a larger capacity battery and
Wear OS operating system. The claimed 572mAh battery life for the watch is a big improvement when we consider the 361mAh battery of the Galaxy Watch 4.
Having a bigger battery leads us to the thought that we will encounter a bigger watch. Considering that the Galaxy Watch 5 will come in 40mm and 44mm options, we cannot predict what size the Pro variant will go up to. Perhaps these expected dimensions will only be valid for the Pro variant.
It is certain that this expected model will cover the battery complaints that we often hear from Galaxy Watch 4 users. A notable increase in battery is a clear reason why the Watch 5 Pro is preferable.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk had promised to send Starlink terminals to the country after Russia invaded Ukraine. Finally, it turned out that a multimillion-dollar agreement was made between the USA and SpaceX for the delivery of Starlink terminals to Ukraine.
According to the Washington Post, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) paid $1,500 per terminal for 1333 terminals and $800,000 transportation fees for the terminals. SpaceX, on the other hand, has donated 3667 Starlink terminals worth approximately $10 million to Ukraine to date.
USA sent Starlink to Ukraine in partnership with SpaceX
In a press release by USAID, they confirmed that they have partnered with SpaceX for Starlink assistance. However, the institution said they described this donation as a “public-private partnership” rather than a “private sector”. The United States Agency for International Development spent $800,000 on shipping while purchasing the $2 million Starlink terminal. In a statement, USAID spokesperson Rebecca Chalif stated that the donation amounted to 3 million dollars and more than 5 thousand Starlink terminals were supplied with the contribution of SpaceX:
“Starlink satellite terminals will provide unlimited, uncontrolled data connections from anywhere in Ukraine. The terminals will allow public officials and critical citizen service providers to continue to communicate within Ukraine and with the outside world.” SpaceX’s internet assistance began following a request sent by Ukraine’s Minister of Digital Transformation, Mykhailo Fedorov, to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. Musk did not remain silent on this request, “Starlink service is now active in Ukraine. There are more terminals on the way,” he replied.
The first shipment of Starlink terminals to Ukraine was made on March 1, and the second shipment was made on March 9. Ukraine internet infrastructure, which is completely connected to Russian networks except Starlink, continues to be in danger despite Starlink.
