Samsung Galaxy Note 20 specs leak: Primed for summer, made for fall

If the Galaxy Note 20 release date were earlier than last year, and the year before that, the company COULD take advantage of the most important summer season in recent memory.

Foldable dream iPhone is too wild for reality: Here’s why

Foldable dream iPhone is too wild for reality: Here’s why

A foldable display iPhone concept was revealed by iOS Beta News in a video called "iPhone Flip" here in May 2020, and it looks fantastic. It's novel, it'd be surprising and delightful if Apple ever really did reveal such a thing as a real product.
