Rollable phones could give foldables a run for their money

Rollable phones could give foldables a run for their money

Although Samsung (or actually Royale) started it last year, it was only really this year that foldable phones truly took off, with the more mature Galaxy Z Flip 2 and the Motorola Razr 5G. But even before the seemingly futuristic smartphone can really take hold of the market, it seems that another unconventional design might be arriving next year.

Depending on how the first generation solves design and engineering problems, rollable phones could actually offer a more economic and more practical alternative to foldable phones.

It’s only a matter of time before the Mach-E is Ford’s fastest Mustang

Ford has a new, faster Mustang Mach-E in the pipeline, and if your lodestar is the quickest vehicle with a pony badge then the electric crossover may end up being your port of call. The Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition doesn't quite slot in as the big daddy of the Mustang range, but it's definitely putting its coupe and convertible brethren on notice.

Upcoming phones geared to rattle the entry-level market

Smartphones have become an integral part of our life – no doubt they sell like hotcakes and virtually every other week a new phone is released in the market.

Apple iPad turf is overly saturated. If you are in the market for an iPad this holiday season, there are a few options you can instantly close on.

Will Apple do a Foldable iPhone or are we expecting too much

Will Apple do a Foldable iPhone or are we expecting too much

If you stand on the street for a random survey – should Apple launch a foldable iPhone – you’ll return with replies in the affirmative more often than expected. The foldable phone market has matured since the niggly launches of Samsung’s first foldable and the Motorola Razr. Phones unveiled in 2020 have less fragile displays, bendable screens do not cringe, hinges are better sealed against dust and water, and the handsets are working their way up to be as durable as our regular smartphones.

Foldable, swivel or rollable smartphone display – Which is better?

Foldable, swivel or rollable smartphone display – Which is better?

Smartphones have evolved a fair bit with regard to screen real estate – the bezels are as thin as they can get, front-facing cameras are no more a hindrance with under-display camera tech, and the display quality has gone through the roof in the last couple of years. Still, there is a lot more to be desired when we see the unique form factor of a foldable device or a rollable phone that’s eye-popping. So, what smartphone will be the most trusted design in terms of its display technology in a couple of years? Let’s find out.

From PC to PS5 and Xbox Series X, 2020’s gaming dream is now a nightmare

If you're a gamer of any persuasion, there's a pretty good chance that you're reading this article in some degree of frustration. Here at the end of 2020, we've seen a number of product launches, from NVIDIA's new RTX graphics cards earlier in the fall, to the launches of Microsoft's Xbox Series X, Sony's PlayStation 5, and AMD's RX 6000 series GPUs more recently. All of them, to some extent, have been a disaster.

Let’s never launch new consoles during a pandemic again, okay?

Let’s never launch new consoles during a pandemic again, okay?

If you're one of the many people who tried to get an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 earlier this week, you probably have some strong words for Microsoft, Sony, and every major retailer in your region right now. There's no two ways about it: these launches have been disasters from the perspective of the consumer, and at this point, it seems likely that PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S are going to have stock issues for some time to come.

Apple Silicon and the 5G opportunity

Apple Silicon and the 5G opportunity

Apple may have come out strong with its new Apple M1, the first notebook chipset of its own design, but there's a conspicuous gap in the new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13: 5G connectivity. In a year where Apple didn't just adopt 5G in iPhone, but embrace it wholeheartedly by including on every new iPhone 12 series device, the fact that it's not to be found in its new notebooks despite the ARM family resemblance seems like a missed opportunity.

Apple made some huge M1 Silicon claims today

Apple made some huge M1 Silicon claims today

There's no reality distortion field quite like Apple's, or so the thinking goes, and that's even more the case when it comes to a huge architectural shift like the launch of the M1, its debut homegrown chipset for Mac. First of the Apple Silicon line-up to be announced since the company confirmed it would be phasing out Intel and moving to its own SoC design back at WWDC 2020 a few months ago, the M1 will initially be at the heart of a new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro 13, and Mac mini.

The iPhone 12 mini feels like coming home

The iPhone 12 mini feels like coming home

The iPhone 12 mini feels like a throwback, and a glorious one at that. Nestling into your hand, its compact body unexpectedly light, it's a reminder of the days many assumed were long gone, when smartphones were little larger overall than their dumb-phone predecessors. In the process, though, it also upends attempts over the past few years to give users the best of all worlds.
