Samsung’s Galaxy Fold might only launch on two of the big US carriers - Dotemirates

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold might only launch on two of the big US carriers

Samsung’s very fancy foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold, will be available on two carriers when it launches in the US in a couple months: AT&T and T-Mobile. As for everyone else? Samsung hasn’t said, but for now, it sounds like the initial model of the Fold won’t launch on Verizon and Sprint. It’s not clear if that means the Fold outright won’t work on those two carriers, but that may be the case. Verizon and Sprint rely on a different mobile technology for their 3G networks, and it’s possible the Fold just doesn’t include support. Sometimes, unsupported phones can still...

Foldable phones are about to make the US very jealous

The US is falling behind on phone design, and foldables are the proof. This year’s Mobile World Congress was full of foldables, from Huawei’s sleek Mate X to Xiaomi’s triple-folding model to TCL’s angular DragonHinge design to Oppo’s prototype to the clunky Royale FlexPai to LG’s sort-of-cheating V50 second screen. But all of those devices have one thing in common: like the last few waves of innovative phone designs released overseas, they won’t be available in America in any meaningful way. Looking at the foldable landscape, there’s basically only one device out there that will actually be sold in the...

Week 11 in review: all about the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro

This week we saw a big jump in Huawei P30-related stories, which is to be expected as we draw closer to their official launch on March 26. By far the biggest story was Huawei's ad campaign to tease the P30 Pro's 5x zoom camera, in which the company misleadingly used DSLR-taken photos. Now, Huawei didn't say these photos were taken with a P30 Pro but it was strongly implied. Anyway, no bad press eh? The P30 Pro made appearances on both AnTuTu and Geekbench, flexing its Kirin 980 muscle. We saw some camera samples actually captured with a Huawei P30...

Valve takes down user tributes memorializing the New Zealand shooting suspect

Valve removed more than 100 tributes to the alleged white supremacist responsible for the mass shooting at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand from Steam profiles, says Kotaku. In the days after the attack, it found that numerous users updated their profiles to include the name or image of the shooter, and in one case, a GIF of the attack. Kotaku says that it initially saw 66 profiles that paid tribute to the shooter in the aftermath of the attack, which claimed 50 lives. The number of tributes later surpassed 100. After contacting Valve for comment, the tributes were removed,...

Chilean glacier shows sign of climate change

Chile: In the space of just two weeks, two large icebergs broke off the Grey Glacier in Chilean Patagonia is a sign of accelerating climate change, experts say. The Grey Glacier is one of the main sights in the Torres del Paine national park popular with tourists and hikers. A giant iceberg the size of six football pitches, 8.8 hectares (22 acres) broke away from the glacier on February 20 and another six-hectare piece detached on March 7. It marks the first time two icebergs of such great size have broken off in such quick succession. The 270 square kilometer...
