Samsung's Galaxy Fold could lead to two more folding phones soon

  • Two More Samsung Foldable Phones to Land in Smartphone Market

The latter, announced at MWC last week, also comes with a novel Hand ID recognition system that's able to recognize your hand's unique veins pattern, but that phone isn't available in stores just yet.

No other details about the design, features or the pricing of these devices are revealed in the report. Anything that makes replacing the charging port more hard is a major negative.

If you were one of the people who preferred Huawei's outward-folding Mate X, you'll be pleased to hear Samsung is also making a phone that folds that way too.

After a comprehensive evaluation process, DisplayMate Technologies has deemed the Galaxy S10's display "the most color accurate display that we have ever tested, [and] nearly certainly considerably better than your existing smartphone, 4K UHD TV, tablet, laptop, and computer monitor". It will be thinner because it has no extra screen, they said. Samsung is now trying to improve the screen's strength, as continued folding will create a crease in the display's protective film layer. A crease reportedly appears on the panel after 10,000 folds.

Launched earlier this month and due for release in April, the Galaxy Fold sports a small 4.6in screen when closed, which transforms into a 7.3in "Infinity Flex" display when folded out into its so-called tablet mode.

Washington ups pressure on Venezuela as Guaido tours South America
On February 4, most of the European Union member states recognized Guaido as Venezuela's interim president. His return from the trip opens the possibility that Venezuelan authorities will try to arrest him.

The Galaxy Fold's screen imperfection develops on a protective film covering the touch sensor bonded with the display underneath, the person said.

Bloomberg says that Samsung forecasts producing at least 1 million foldable devices this year.

Galaxy S10's 512GB variant is priced at Rs 84,900 whereas the 128GB variant will cost Rs 66,900.

All Galaxy S10 devices run on Android 9.0 Pie with Samsung's One UI. This is troublesome, not only because previous Samsung flagships have offered modular USB-C ports, but also due to the simple fact that if something is going to fail as a result of normal use, it's probably going to be the charging port. Because no one really has an idea of what the ideal foldable phone design is, Samsung is experimenting with two other designs.
