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

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,…

Soon, wrap your smartphone on the wrist

Soon you may be able to use your smartphone on your wrist or bend your computer to fit in your pocket! Researchers have taken a step towards more flexible devices by fabricating a thin film that keeps her even when very curved electric and magnetic properties useful.

Flexible electronics have been difficult to manufacture because many materials with useful electronic properties tend to be rigid.

Researchers have addressed this problem by taking small pieces of material such as silicon and embedded in the flexible plastic.

A team of physicists and engineers from South Korea took the same approach with bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3) - one of the most promising materials whose properties can be controlled with a magnetic field, and vice versa.

These materials are called multiferroic and attract interest for applications such as energy efficient, instant-on computing.

The researchers synthesized bismuth ferrite nanoparticles and mixed in a polymer solution. The solution was dried in a series o…
