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,…

The best travel chargers for your phone

Image
Keeping all of your gadgets charged can be one of the most stressful parts of traveling. Nobody wants to pack half a dozen charging bricks in their bag, and using the same chargers you keep around the house means undoing and redoing your home charging setup every time you go on a trip. Here are some travel-focused chargers that will make your life easier.
Charging bricksMulti-device chargersTravel adapters Charging bricks are getting more powerful If all you need to power on your next trip is your phone or tablet, you can easily get by with a simple charging brick. While the one that comes with your device works just fine, the ones listed below offer higher output than what's typically included with a phone, partially thanks to the advent of gallium nitride technology (GaN), which allows for high output charging in significantly smaller chargers compared to silicon.

From the Editor's Desk: Huawei's rock is also its hard place

Can Huawei build a Google-free Android that people actually want to use?I've spent around 10 minutes with a Huawei Mate 30 Pro. I picked up a European friend's review unit, played around with the waterfall display a bit, hungrily took a few photos with its massive cameras, and swiped through an Android UI devoid of any Google services. I promptly returned it to the table. In contrast, I've spent around 10 months with the Huawei P30 Pro. It was one of my favorite phones of 2019; I used it exclusively on an overseas trip last summer, and it's since improved with EMUI 10 and Android 10.
The biggest difference between the Huawei Mate 30 Pro and P30 Pro has nothing to do with sensors of silicon.There are significant hardware differences between these two phones, but the biggest has nothing to do with sensors or silicon, but a date. One date in particular, actually: May 16, 2019. That was the day Huawei was added to the Entity List, after which time U.S.-based companies were n…

Arrest of Samsung’s Lee may not affect smartphone business in short term

Image
The arrest of Samsung Electronics’ vice chairman Lee Jae-yong on Friday in South Korea may not have a direct impact on the company’s high-profile electronics business, including its smartphones unit, according to analysts.
Samsung announced in 2012 the promotion of the executive, also known as Jay. Y. Lee, to his current formal position at Samsung Electronics. But he is largely seen as the de-facto leader of the Samsung Group, running the business on behalf of his ailing father, Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-Hee.
He was arrested on charges of bribery as part of an alleged corruption scandal that led to the impeachment of South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye.

The Previous leak of Nokia seems to fall into place here.

Nokia Prototype feature phone The bigger sibling of the two is reportedly sporting a 22 MP camera and will launch at a price of US $ 500  ( Rs. 34000) . The company will launch the phones at the end of the year post the official Android Nougat reveal in two months.
By that time smartphones will be working on the next Qualcomm Snapdragon 823/821. In effect Nokia will be late as usual to the party, however this time with a more meaningful product.

New phones of the week

Image
This week we got phones ranging from 4.5" to 5.5", each of them ranking high on feature and low on price. 
Xiaomi kicked things off with the Redmi 3, a phone that barely crosses the $100 mark, but brings an all-metal body, a 5" display, octa-core chipset and a surprisingly big 4,100mAh battery for its 8.5mm of thickness.



A few days later the company launched the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3... no, not this one, this one. The 5.5" phablet aimed at the international market and swaps the Helio chipset for a Snapdragon 650 and upgrades the camera to 16MP along the way.



On the other end of the size scale is the Samsung Galaxy J1 (2016), which tiptoed into official status. It has a 4.5" screen (Super AMOLED), a quad-core chipset and a 5MP camera. Its official price tag of $135 is $10-$20 above what can be found with a bit of shopping.



The Lenovo Lemon 3 competes with the Redmi 3 with a 5" screen (with a higher resolution, 1080p) and a similar just-over-$100 price tag. …

Slimtype is a QWERTY keyboard cover for the Samsung Galaxy S6

Image
It seems that BlackBerry is not alone in wanting to revive the QWERTY keyboard for mobile phones, such as the Norwegian company One2One Touch has just unveiled its own physical keyboard accessories for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, but not the plus model, called the slim type.
The slim type connects up to the galaxy S6 by NFC instead of Bluetooth connection, they were included in the rule with a wireless keyboard accessory, and it does not require its own battery pack either. The keyboard must have its own app from the save game, but after that you are good to go. There are also keyboard shortcuts for E-mail, web and search, together with a dedicated emoji button.



The keyboard is integrated into a slim case that simply clips on the back of your smartphone and is manufactured from a comfortable textile surface. But this also means that there is nothing to prop up the screen so that you probably only with it when the phone flat. I personally think that it is an elegant looking des…

Apple has thought that two rear cameras on the iPhone

Image
one of the biggest strengths of the iPhone has long been his camera, and a new patent application from Apple shows how it could be improved still further in the future. The application first discovered by patently Apple, is obviously for a dual system of the camera on the back of your smartphone. Apple is in the foreground, at least in this patent is the photographer a way to enlarge without losing image quality.

The idea is that a camera had a wide-angle lens, the other had a much deeper focal length. Then you could switch between the two without resolution how to use digital zoom.
Both cameras could be shooting at once.
Of course there are many other ways that Apple could decide to a Dual camera system. A 3D camera is among them, but it seems unlikely, unless Apple also a 3D screen to display them. Also as a zoom system, there are more than just switching from one to the other to take photos. The patent application proposes a could be used to generate still images, while the other …

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…
