Samsung Galaxy Fold’s design is bad, says Huawei CEO Richard Yu

Published

on

Foldable smartphones are going to be the talk-of-the-town throughout the year 2019 for sure. Samsung has initiated the war with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone.

Huawei, as usual, has come up with a foldable smartphone of its own which is dubbed the Huawei Mate X.

As the trend follows, Huawei never misses out an opportunity to mock Samsung for not being able to pull off substantial improvements when it comes to Android smartphones, the company has done it yet again.

Richard Yu, Huawei CEO for mobile business has said in one of the interviews with BusinessInsider that the design choice for the Galaxy Fold is rather bad.

Huawei’s consumer CEO, Richard Yu, told Business Insider that his company had prototyped a folding phone design similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold but “killed it” because it was so bad.

While the Samsung Galaxy Fold has a dual display which helps us continue using the device even when folded, the Mate X has a single display instead.

I feel having two screens, a front screen and a back screen, makes the phone too heavy

We had several solutions, but we cancelled them. We had three projects simultaneously. We had something even better than that [the Samsung Galaxy Fold], killed by me.

Richard Yu

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is priced at €2,000 while the Mate X would fetch you a little more (€2,299 to be precise), so in any case, you are spending a bucket load of money in case you want to purchase any of these devices.

As far as the question as to which device is better is concerned, we leave the choice to you. You can join the XDA discussion forum to compare both the devices even more.

ZTE Axon S leaked renders showcase a horizontal sliding camera tech

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too.Last year, ZTE launched the ZTE Axon M which boasted of a dual display. A little while ago, the company launched the ZTE Axon 10 Pro flagship.

The company is now all geared up to launch yet another amazing smartphone dubbed the ZTE Axon S.

As per the recently leaked renders (courtesy of Trending Leaks), the ZTE Axon S will sport a triple rear camera setup which will interestingly pop out horizontally.

Looking at the renders, we can clearly see that the device will feature an under-display fingerprint scanner. Furthermore, there would be a dual front camera which will be integrated into the same protruding mechanism.

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too

The sliding mechanism does not appear to be motorized and will most certainly be manual which makes sense.

As of now, there is no word on the official specifications of the device, but the report further mentions that we will get a 48MP primary sensor and a 19MP secondary sensor. The third one will most possibly be a ToF sensor.

The device will feature a USB Type-C charging port and 5G will be supported too.

Though the specifications of the device are not clear as of now, we can expect the ZTE Axon S to be powered with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset which will be coupled with at least 8GB of RAM (given the company’s history).

As of now, this is all we know about the device, but we are sure to receive further intel on the same in the coming days.

A little while ago, we got a bunch of wallpapers which blended in perfectly with the under-display camera layout of the recently launched Galaxy S10 lineup of smartphones.

You can have a look at them by following our existing coverage of the same.

Now, Samsung has decided to make things official as the company has launched official cut-out wallpapers for the Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10E, and Galaxy S10+.

They, however, are not going to be free of cost

These cut-out wallpapers are available on the Samsung Theme Store. They, however, are not going to be free of cost.

If you want to download these wallpapers, they cost $0.99 a piece. The sad part is that you cannot even try them before downloading (for obvious reasons).

Still, if you want to try out some of the cut-out wallpapers for free, you can head to this SubReddit and get them all for free.

Update: We now have the download links to the wallpapers. You can get them all from the links below

Even after having almost all the latest tech, there will be a big bunch of people who would hate the design choice as the both the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Samsung Galaxy S10+ feature an under-display camera which leaves a dark spot at the top right side of the display.

In case you are not a big fan of the holes too, these wallpapers are going to make you a lot happier.
