Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, 5G Galaxy Z Flip will launch in August 2020

Image
Samsung is expected to launch two new foldable smartphones in the second half of the year. An affordable foldable handset model is expected to hit the market next year, industry insiders said on Sunday. Samsung is expected to present the Galaxy Fold 2 and the 5G variant of the Galaxy Z Flip together with its flagship phablet Galaxy Note 20 at an event in August, the news agency Yonhap reported, citing the industry sources. But his affordable foldable smartphone, probably called the Galaxy Fold Lite, is unlikely to make its debut at the event, they said.
The South Korean technology giant was said to have released a version of its foldable smartphone that costs almost half the price of a normal Galaxy Fold. Technical experts have predicted that the Galaxy Fold 2 will have a 7.7-inch screen and a 6.23-inch cover display when unfolded, both of which are larger than the 7.3-inch or 4.6-inch displays of the predecessor. Samsung is expected to use ultra-thin glass (UTG) for the Galaxy Fold 2,…

Does ExpressVPN keep logs?

Image
Best answer: ExpressVPN is quite explicit in stating that the company does not collect or keep any logs of your activity, browsing history, data content, or DNS queries. Most companies bury this in the Privacy Policy, but ExpressVPN offers up the information as the second sentence so it's easy to find.Encrypt your connection: ExpressVPN ($6.67 per month at ExpressVPN)ExpressVPN, which happens to be our best VPN top pick, is very clear about its logging and that states that it doesn't log your data. That's a very top-line answer to the question, but one that's immediately reassuring. Since these policies are often far too long to actually read, we've done that for you.The result is that we've got a clear picture of what data is and isn't recorded by VPNs, in this case ExpressVPN specifically. First, a little background so we can explain this clearly.A VPN uses a proxy server to give you an IP address which makes you appear to be somewhere and someone else. T…

OnePlus was one of the first companies to switch to 90Hz displays, and this year the OnePlus 8 Pro comes with a 120Hz panel.

LG Velvet review: Beautifully flawed

Image
LG's new sub-flagship shines with a striking design and Dual Screen, but fumbles some of the basics.The long-running LG G series retires this year, and in its place comes a new mid-level flagship built around design and aesthetic beauty. The LG Velvet mixes up the stale design language seen in some of the company's recent phones, and also boasts 5G connectivity thanks to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G platform. In fact, it'll be among the first 765-powered phones to arrive in the West.LG's Dual Screen is back too, with a new, slimmer, and more stylish version of the accessory shipping for the Velvet. The Dual Screen was pretty goofy a year ago when it first debuted alongside the V50. In the past year, however, LG has refined the hardware and software to the point where it's genuinely useful, improving gaming and multitasking similarly to a phone with a true foldable screen.But even though this might be LG's best-looking and most useful phone yet, it's let d…
