Samsung Galaxy F foldable smartphone: More live shots and video

Published

on

More live shots and promotional video of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy F foldable smartphone have recently got revealed courtesy of Letsgodigital.

We have noticed a number of noteworthy differences between the foldable smartphone model that can be seen in the teaser video and the mobile device that was shown last November at the Samsung Developer Conference. The smartphone housing was a dummy case at the time, so you could only see the flexible display and not the design of the phone itself. LetsGoDigital has already had 3D renders designed for this device last year.

What immediately strikes you when looking at the teaser video is the thickness of the device. The Samsung Galaxy F seems to be paper thin. Justin Denison, senior vice president of Samsung’s Mobile Product Marketing, has already revealed at the Developer Conference that the screen will be thinner than ever before, the polarizer has been thinned down by 45%. This layer determines the thickness of the display for a large part.

We also see that four icons are displayed next to each other on the start screen when the device is folded. This is remarkable because the foldable smartphone that Justin Denison had in his hands showed five icons in a row. On the Samsung One UI web page, the user interface for Samsung’s folding smartphone, four icons are displayed in a row – just like in the video.

Another difference that even more clearly catches the eye is, of course, the display at the front. The device that was shown at the Developer Conference had significantly thicker screen edges. While the foldable smartphone in the Samsung video shows a virtually full-screen display, more in line with the phones as they are presented today.

Justin Denison told in November that the Samsung Galaxy foldable smartphone will feature a 4.58-inch front-display (840 × 1960 pixels). The phone folds open to a 7.3-inch tablet with QXGA + resolution (1536 × 2152 pixels).

What does this mean? Or Samsung will double surprise us at the end of the month and says; ‘Here is our foldable smartphone, we have decided to make the display at the front a bit bigger, you probably will not mind’. Or we are looking at a teaser video of a future foldable Samsung smartphone. I would certainly not want to exclude this last option, although the opinion on this is divided on the editorial staff.

Anyway, it is a fact that there are several smartphone models on the teaser video from Samsung that are not yet revealed. It seems to be a Galaxy Note smartphone with a full-screen full display, possibly the Galaxy Note 10. The upper and lower bezel is, in any case, a lot smaller than with the current Note 9, in terms of design and camera positioning show the two devices a lot of similarities.

In addition, we see a future Galaxy S smartphone with rounded corners. The phone does not seem to have a hole in the display for the camera. The selfie camera is placed completely under the display, without a cutout being made in the screen. In other words, this is not the Galaxy S10, but rather the Galaxy S11, or whatever the device may be called by that time. This type of display was announced as a New Infinity display at the Samsung Developers Conference. This screen may be used for the first time with the Note 10, which is expected in the second half of 2019.

[better-ads type=”banner” banner=”8367″ campaign=”none” count=”2″ columns=”1″ orderby=”rand” order=”ASC” align=”center” show-caption=”0″][/better-ads]

Furthermore, the teaser video shows an electronic device with a remarkably large display, a kind of futuristic tablet with very minimal screen edges. Incidentally, not only future smartphone and tablet models are shown, but there are also various innovative functions.

For example, at the beginning of the video, we see a sort of transparent display or a projector image. It has been discussed for a long time that Samsung is working on a projector or 3D hologram function. The company has also experimented with transparent OLED displays in the past.

Later in the video, there are also gesture functions at the moment the big tablet is in the picture. Samsung is not the only manufacturer that seems to see future in this. LG also put a teaser online last week that was about gestures, we hear more about this at MWC 2019.

Also in the video attention is paid to AR gaming. The fact that Samsung takes mobile gaming seriously turned out last year when the company had invited Fortnite to speak at the press conference of the Galaxy Note 9. The Android version of this popular game appeared for a short time exclusively for Samsung’s top model. There are also sounds that the company has a gaming smartphone in development. Last week, LetsGoDigital reported on a foldable Samsung gaming smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy Fold teardown images showcase the internals

Published

Samsung galaxy fold internals

The world of Android has got a new thing to talk about – the Samsung Galaxy Fold breaks. Almost every YouTuber has made a video about the fiasco.

As it turns out, Samsung has implemented an additional layer of coating on the top of the regular display to protect the main display and the fragile internals. Unfortunately/strangely enough, Samsung has not provided the minority of the buyers of the Galaxy Fold with any warning about the fact that the Galaxy Fold might break if the top layer is peeled off.


Nevertheless, a user has posted the following teardown images of the device which showcase how fragile the Fold is from the inside.

The device is going to be released come April 26. So far, we know almost all the official specifications of the device, but that is certainly not it. There is a myriad of doubts amongst our minds which Mishaal Rahman (an XDA member) has tried to clear out via a tweet.

Let’s have a look at all the doubts he has tried to clear out.

1. Does the Galaxy Fold have a crease when unfolded?

Sadly, yes. As per Rahman, the crease is there. Thankfully enough, it is barely noticeable and becomes almost negligible when the screen brightness is more than 70%.

Q: Does it fold completely or is it like a binder?

A: More like a binder, it leaves a small gap.

2. Does the screen bend/fold outwards? How sturdy is the hinge?

As per him, the screen does not bend outwards and the hinge is sturdy enough to keep the Galaxy Fold from bending that way.

Q: Does the hinge bend outward? (Not intended behaviour, but want to know about quality)

A: Doesn’t bend outwards.

3. Can I use the Galaxy Fold as a small laptop at 90 degrees?

That seems unlikely. As per Rahman, the Galaxy Fold can be bent at a right angle, but that turns off the screen, meaning that one won’t be able to use the device in that orientation.

Q: Can the Fold remain open at a right angle?

A: Fold is weird like you could make it stay open at that angle but the screen would be off and if you do manage to keep it open its more of a balancing.

4. Does the Galaxy Fold allow for separate home screen setups?

Yes, it does.

Q: Does it allow for separate home screen setups?

A: It does allow separate home screens. Actually, that messed me up the first time. I set my home screen to a seal and only the inner screen changed. Later I figured that I have to change the small screen wallpaper separately.

Furthermore, he has tested the Galaxy Fold using various benchmarks and metrics. You can check it all out by following the tweet thread.

Q: Does the hinge bend outward? (Not intended behaviour, but want to know about quality)

A: Doesn’t band outwards.

Q: Can the Fold remain open at a right angle?

A: Fold is weird like you could make it stay open at that angle but the screen would be off and if you do manage to keep it open its more of a balancing.

samsung galaxy s10 camera review

Last year’s Samsung Galaxy S9 lineup and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 featured one of the best cameras in the market. The Galaxy S10 lineup has taken things to an altogether different dimension. The 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 boasts of a quad camera setup (12 MP, f/1.5-2.4 wide angle + 2 MP, f/2.4, 52mm telephoto + 16 MP, f/2.2, 12mm ultrawide + TOF camera) which is going to give the competitors nightmares for days.

More live shots and promotional video of the Lenovo Z6 Pro appear

Lenovo z6 pro teardown

The upcoming Lenovo Z6 Pro has once again popped up on the internet as a bunch of live shots and a promotional video of the device appear online.

The first image showcases the device’s rear in all its glory, the second one shows a kind of a teardown of the device and its specifications, and the third one shows off the display and the under-display fingerprint scanner.

Furthermore, the company has shared a promotional video of the device on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo.

Recently, Cheng has shared a bunch of camera shots taken from the Lenovo Z6 Pro and if the images are indeed taken from the device (and not by a DSLR, duh), there is certainly a big reason as to why you need to be interested in the device.

Just have a look at the photos and judge by yourself.

Looking at the images, it is clear that we are going to get a monster of a smartphone. Once again, we won’t trust Cheng as of now as he is kind of famous for faking news, but the future of the Z6 Pro looks promising if it’s not all lies.

The pre-orders of the device have already begun. Today, the company has posted the official image of the rear of the device which depicts a quad rear camera arrangement.

One of the rear cameras will be a 48MP unit. This confuses everything as the earlier rumors suggested a 100MP camera coming up with the device. Nevertheless, we will get to know everything pretty soon as the launch date is not too far away.

Lenovo z6 pro launch date

We already know that the device is going to pack in a bunch of amazing features including a whopping 12GB of RAM and a 100MP (alleged) primary camera.

Adding on to that, the device will most certainly be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. This, however, is no more a rumor as the company has made it official via the Chinese microblogging website Weibo.

Qualcomm has already hinted that we would get 100MP cameras in smartphones somewhere this year, but we did not expect the news to come from Lenovo (watch out Samsung and Huawei).

Will the Lenovo Z6 Pro actually feature a 100MP camera?

To be honest, this news must be taken with due precaution as Cheng has had a reputation of exaggerating and overhyping (who can forget the Lenovo Z5 fiasco). There might be a possibility of an on-paper specs bump using software tweaks.

Nevertheless, having a 100MP camera (howsoever it turns out to be) is pretty impressive in itself.

The prime highlight of the device is going to be a HyperVision camera. Furthermore, the device will feature 5G, making it the company’s first smartphone to have 5G support.

While addressing the audience, a Lenovo representative gave us an idea of the upcoming plans of the company. As per the announcement, Lenovo is all geared up to launch the Lenovo Z6 Pro which will be the company’s first smartphone to have 5G support.

Not only that, but the device will also sport a new HyperVision camera which will be capable of recording Hyper Videos, a concept which is still not implemented practically in the world of Android smartphones.

Under the hood, the Lenovo Z6 Pro will be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage with scope for further expansion with the help of an external SD card.

As of now, little is known about the device, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days as the launch date approaches.
