Confirmed: You're getting new Samsung Galaxy foldables next month

Forget teases, conjectures, and leaks. Samsung's own leadership has penned a blog post that primes the anticipation pump for multiple foldable devices that may "push the limit of what's possible," and will launch during Samsung Unpacked on August 10.

In an editorial posted late Wednesday entitled, "The Mainstream Moment for Foldable Smartphones Is Here," Samsung President Dr. TM Roh, says that after seeing 10 million foldable shipped last year (or 9 million, depending on who you ask), "we're reaching the moment where foldable are widespread." 

Samsung now plans to help ensure that spread with new foldables - he doesn't name them - that the company will unveil on August 10.

It's safe to assume that Roh is talking about Samsung Galaxy Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4, or at least some iteration of those two folding Android phone designs. But it's also possible that Samsung may take a leap or two on the names, maybe adding something like "Ultra" to one of them.

Big changes or big talk

There's also the possibility, at least based on Roh's language, that these new devices might push the envelope of foldable design, as well. As Roh notes, "This year, we’ve made advancements in every detail and opened the new experiences enabled by these behavior-shifting devices."

However, there's also the chance that the Z Flip, a more palm-sized foldable, and the Fold 4, a smartphone that unfolds into a small tablet, could merge a bit, with the Z Flip talking on some of the Fold's productivity attributes and the Fold 4 getting a little more of the Z Flip's design panache. 

Writes Roh, "I can’t wait to show you the potential of our new Samsung Galaxy foldables as the ultimate tool for both productivity and self-expression. Now, you can do more than you ever thought possible, all at once, on one device."

As for what we can expect from a new Galaxy Fold 4, most rumors point to improved screens, more cameras, and a redefined hinge. On the Z Flip 4 front, the changes might be less extreme, though there could be a new under-the-fold screen camera.

Roh's post certainly seems to promise more than that, but it could also be a bit of marketing bluster to build excitement for what we suspected was coming all along.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s
