Samsung promises fix for flawed fingerprint security on these flagship 2019 phones

Samsung promises fix for flawed fingerprint security on these flagship 2019 phones

Earlier this week, news of a particularly troubling flaw with the Galaxy S10's ultrasonic fingerprint reader broke. Apparently, phones that had certain third-party screen protectors installed could potentially accept fingerprints that weren't previously registered to the device. This, of course, means that someone who isn't you could gain access to your phone, and that's never a good thing.

Pixel 4 snubbed 5G because Google isn’t convinced it’s time yet

Pixel 4 snubbed 5G because Google isn’t convinced it’s time yet

The Pixel 4 has almost all the staples of a late 2019 flagship phone except for two things. It strangely missed out on the Snapdragon 855+ but even more strangely skipped adding 5G support. For a company that lives and breathes the Internet and a major proponent of pushing communication technology forward, that is an almost glaring omission. It turns out, the tech giant isn't at all impressed at the rollout of 5G networks in the very few countries that even have it.

ASUS ROG Phone 2 teardown reveals one critical flaw

ASUS ROG Phone 2 teardown reveals one critical flaw

Gaming smartphones are designed for a niche market but many of them actually offer the same high-end features of regular flagships at almost half the price. ASUS' second stab at that market is perhaps the one exception. Yes, it does have one of the best combination of specs this year but the $900 price tag might scare off some mobile gamers into the arms of its rivals. Perhaps more damning, however, is the revelation of the ROG Phone II's one weakness, making it not only an expensive investment but also a risky one.

Pixel 4 new Google Assistant requires Gesture Navigation

Pixel 4 new Google Assistant requires Gesture Navigation

One of Android 10's new features is its full gesture navigation system. While it definitely improves on the initial implementation in Android 9 Pie, some users may not be completely sold on it yet. Some might even find it physically difficult to swipe and swipe and hold around. Pixel 4 owners, however, may not have much choice, that is they want to use the all-new Google Assistant. It turns out, Google is locking them into using Gesture Navigation, regardless of how they call the powerful AI assistant.

Galaxy Fold 2 could feature world’s first under-display camera

Simply based on rumors, the Galaxy Fold 2 could be the most ambitious phone to come to the market. Either that or it will eclipse its predecessor as Samsung's biggest embarrassment. Samsung is seemingly putting some of the most novel and most experimental features ever known in the industry, not even including the foldable screen itself.

Motorola Razr with foldable screen might finally debut next month

It seems that the foldable hype is showing no signs of slowing down just yet. The Huawei Mate X, for example, might finally see a launch in China before the month is over. Now it seems that Motorola of all companies is getting ready to follow suit. At least that seems to be the suggestion of an invite for a press event in November that may see not just the rebirth of the venerable RAZR phone but also its reinvention as a foldable phone as well.

Pixel 4 Face Unlock doesn’t care if you’re sleeping

Google's Face Unlock on the new Pixel 4 may make accessing the new Android smartphone more straightforward, but it could also make it easier for others to unlock the device when you're sleeping. The latest in the Pixel series does away with the fingerprint sensor on the last-generation Pixel 3, instead recognizing faces for what Google has said will be faster and more secure.

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV 2019 revealed in Amazon leak

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV 2019 revealed in Amazon leak

Amazon made a mistake in listing the NVIDIA SHIELD reboot for the year 2019 today. Apparently the Android TV device was not yet meant for this world, as it's been once-again de-listed as quickly as it appeared. The TV set was shown available on pre-order for approximately $199.99 USD with free shipping. This device was listed with a new NVIDIA Tegra X1+ processor that's "25% faster than the previous generation" with "enhanced HD video in real-time to 4K for clearer, crisper visuals using next-generation AI upscaling."
