Samsung Unveils its Foldable Smartphone
According to Yonhap News, a Korean news agency, Samsung Electronics will start selling its foldable smartphone in March. Industry sources have mentioned that the electronics giant will also launch its Galaxy S10 phone in February.
Koh Dong-jin, CEO of Samsung, unveiled the company's first foldable phone on the 7th of November, at the U.S. Developer's Conference. The device will reportedly have a huge 7.4-inch screen when unfolded and a standard, 4.6-inch display when folded.
New Surface Go with Integrated LTE is Available
Microsoft has recently added a new configuration to its Surface Go series of tablet/laptop hybrids. According to Ars Technica, consumers will have access to a single LTE variant, while corporate users will have two options to choose from.
The most expensive business model, which costs $829, utilizes Windows 10 Professional, has 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD storage space. Home users will have to pay $679 for a device that features Windows 10 Home, has 8GB of RAM and a storage capacity of 128GB.
Sony Releases the WH-1000XM3 Headphones
The company has recently released a new $350 pair of headphones, which makes my trusty old cans look and sound really ugly. They support wired and wireless connections and implement an advanced noise cancellation mechanism that does an amazing job.
WH-1000XM3 uses a new model of 1.57", dome type CCAW Voice coil driver units that have a frequency response which ranges from 4 Hz to 40,000 Hz, way more than what our ears will ever be able to hear. So, if you've got the cash, you owe it to yourself to test these headphones!
5G Antennas and Gadgets are Coming
Okay, so high-gain antennas are already here. And yet, even though antennas like these are optimized for high-density VOIP and/or media streaming, mobile operators haven't launched too many 5G smartphones yet. It's true that next-gen phones such as Galaxy S10, OnePlus 7 and a few more devices are coming soon, and they'll hopefully fill in the gap.
The next generation of cellular technology is supposed to provide greater speeds, enhance coverage and decrease latency. It is known that 4G networks have a latency of about 20 milliseconds, while 5G technologies will be able to send your requests to the network in less than a millisecond.
Turn Your iPad Pro into a MacBook
Accessory maker Brydge has recently posted an interesting tweet. The image shows an iPad Pro accessory which will turn your beloved tablet into a... laptop. It's been demonstrated that some iPads are more powerful than the average notebooks, so it makes sense to build a dock/keyboard like that.
We don't know too many details about the product yet, but it looks like the dock will have an aluminum finish and nicely spaced out keyboard keys. According to Brydge, the device will start shipping in the first quarter of 2019. If you want to find out more, you can sign up for the company's newsletter.
