This may be Samsung’s foldable Galaxy Z Flip
Now we’ve had the Galaxy S20 leaks, on to ruining the party for Samsung’s next foldable. WinFuture has obtained images and specs for what’s believed to be the Galaxy Z Flip, which is rumored to have a 6.7-inch folding display with more protective Ultra Thin Glass instead of plastic. There’s also a hole for the 10-megapixel front camera.
On the back, you’d have a 1-inch always-on display for notifications and such, and only two cameras. The Z Flip may run on a slightly older Snapdragon 855 Plus processor instead of the 865 expected in the Galaxy S20 family. Rumors suggest it could all cost $1,500.
Dyson hopes you’ll throw down $650 for its Morph lamp that mimics candlelight
Like the Lightcycle lamp released last year, Dyson’s new Lightcycle Morph has the ability to automatically adjust based on your local daylight. It also has three axes to allow it to rotate into different positions and the ability to emulate candlelight, but you’ll have to shell out a minimum of $650 for this updated version.
Google is reportedly launching a new messaging app
Stop us if you’ve heard this one before — Google is reportedly launching a new messaging service. According to The Information, this one is targeting businesses, and in a truly shocking turn, instead of building from scratch, it will apparently try to merge existing services like Hangouts Chat, Hangouts Meet, Gmail and Google Drive. Maybe they’ll call it Gchat?
Pokémon Home costs three times more than the service it replaces
One month of the Premium subscription to Pokémon Home will set you back $3 every 30 days. Nintendo also plans to offer quarterly and annual subscription options, in which case you’ll need to pay either $5 every three months or $16 per year. That is a significant increase from the cost of Pokémon Bank — that 3DS-exclusive service currently costs $5 annually.
Review: Sony A6100 camera
When it comes to new cameras, it’s not all full-frame models. Sony’s APS-C cameras are still hugely popular — and the company knows how to make ’em. But the A6100 is a big upgrade over 2014’s A6000. You now get a much improved autofocus system with intelligent face- and eye-tracking, along with 4K 30 fps video. Sony has also improved the color science and low-light capabilities, so photos are sharp and color accurate, even in dimly lit environments. The drawbacks are bad rolling shutter, a low-resolution EVF and, as usual, a poor menu system. Read up on Steve Dent’s full review.
