Official ad of Samsung Galaxy Flex foldable phone leaked


What happened?
An official TV ad was accidentally leaked by Samsung Vietnam showing what the near future of Samsung could look like. It made headlines for featuring Samsung’s new foldable phone, which is rumored to be launching soon.

Why does it matter?
Foldable phones are HOT right now with plenty of companies confirming or rumored to be launching foldable devices this month.

Samsung has already confirmed that it is developing a foldable phone, and even showed a clunky-looking concept in November 2018 that can turn into a tablet by simply opening it.

The Korean manufacturer is not alone. In January we saw the launch of the Royole foldable phone, confirmation from Huawei today that it is launching a foldable phone at MWC and rumor/promises from LG, Motorola, Oppo, Sony and Xiaomi. Even Apple has filed for patents on such a device.

What’s the bottom line?
While it looks like someone at Samsung Vietnam may have jumped the gun with what we suspect is the company’s Super Bowl ad, the news will likely only spark excitement for such a device. The verdict is still unknown as to why we need foldable devices — other than they look cool — but much more discussion will follow.

A cheaper Nintendo Switch may be coming in early 2019

What happened?
Nintendo wants to double portability and plans to scrap some features to sell a cheaper Nintendo Switch, according to a report from Japan’s business daily Nikkei.

Why does it matter?
The Nikkei report, spotted by Nintendo All, claimed that Nintendo is already working with suppliers and game development companies and is aiming for a release in early 2019. One of those claims is that the company will ditch the included docking station and/or downsize the screen to make a smaller and cheaper device. . Either way, a more affordable Switch is a surefire way to get their hands on the device for consumers who were put off by its $300 price tag.

What’s the bottom line?
If Nintendo cut the console dock, it would be odd to keep the Switch name — it has that name because you can literally switch between handheld gaming and using your TV as a screen. While the Switch has already achieved record sales for Nintendo, it hasn’t yet reached the high aspirations the company has for it. Lowering the price by diversifying the range could be a way to increase sales.

First test Panasonic Lumix S1: a full-frame feast for the senses

Why should you buy it?

Full-frame image quality looks excellent from what we’ve seen So far Lots of potential Leica mounting quality Exceptional image stabilization system Eye AF works very well, Best in class OLED viewfinder Easy to use High-quality video features will reach a whole new audience to tempt

Why wouldn’t you?

Being later in the game than the other major players could limit the appeal Leica mount means lenses are huge Switch operation on the back can be over-sensitive Some quirks of low-light autofocus Not all video features are available at launch

What does it come down to?
It may be late for the game – behind Sony and Nikon – and the Leica mount makes for big lenses, but the quality, power and ease of use of the S1 make for a great entrant to the full-frame market. We suspect that high-end videographers will also be tempted to use this new format just for the lens mount.
