Samsung Galaxy X: 3 ways this folding display phone could flex

Samsung Galaxy X: 3 ways this folding display phone could flex

The Samsung Galaxy X had our attention when we first saw Samsung fold a display, right before our eyes. It was amazing to see how the company - at least the Samsung Display portion of the company - was able to take something that seemed so fragile, and treat it like something far more robust. That was well before we heard rumors of the name Samsung Galaxy X - now we're well into hardware patents season. Today we're going to look at several ways in which Samsung tested the possibilities in flexible displays for a mobile device.

That confirmation comes from the HTML5test tool that, unsurprisingly, benchmark’s a phone’s, or rather a browser on a phone, performance in rendering HTML 5 compliant web pages.

Galaxy J2 (2018) is coming for those who don’t need the fluff

Just this week, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A8 and A8+ 2018 editions, which was expected to happen next month at CES. But, also as expected, it was pretty much like the Galaxy S8 Lite. Not everyone, however, is enamored by the new 18:9 (or 18.5:9 in Samsung’s case) screens, glass backs, and high price tags. For those consumers, Samsung still has the Galaxy J line, the latest of which, the Galaxy J2 (2018) might be very close to being announced.

Samsung Galaxy X it isn’t, Rugged it is

Today a bit of a debunking needs to be done regarding the Samsung Galaxy X, a mythical smartphone with a moving, bending display. This device has long been rumored after several Samsung demonstrations of displays that are indeed capable of bending and remaining intact.

Samsung NW700 Soundbar tries to disappear into your wall

TV makers these days are trying to make their products almost impossibly thin for the purpose of making them blend with walls.While they may have succeeded in doing that, the price they sometimes have to pay is in sound, which is either too weak because of the small space, or decent but has to be routed to bulky speakers, breaking the illusion.
