Huawei V-Pencil patent hints at a killer Mate V foldable feature

Foldables are back in fashion again, at least thanks to Samsung's more aggressive push of its third-gen devices. While the Galaxy Z Fold 3 has the most features and most controversy, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 is being painted as the more silent success between the two. The affordability of the foldable clamshell might be spurring Samsung's competitors to take notice and step up their own game. Huawei, in particular, might have a trick up its sleeve to make its rumored Mate V clamshell more tempting.

Samsung Galaxy gaming phone with a cooling fan might be in the works

Almost all phones, especially the high-end ones, are actually capable of handling mobile gaming, even the graphics-intensive ones. Dedicated gaming phones, however, add some special features aimed to make gamers' lives easier. That includes keeping their phones from burning down from all that activity. Instead of just advanced cooling technologies, some gaming phones go old school and actually put fans inside the phone.

LG Rollable could be rollable Project B phone’s commercial name

LG sought to reinvent itself this year and got the ball rolling on two things. It created new product lines, Universal and Explorer, for "normal" and experimental phones, respectively. It also adopted a new naming scheme that moved away from single letters and numbers to make its phones more memorable.

Apple files legal opposition to a meal app’s pear logo

Apple's partially bitten apple logo has remained practically unchanged since the beginning except for the color. Given how it is one of the most iconic logos today, it isn't surprising that it will fight tooth and nail to protect it against trademark violators and copycats, of which there are many. What you might expect, however, is for Apple to attack any company, big or especially small, that uses any fruit for a logo, which is apparently what it has been doing almost silently until a certain Prepear app decided they won't take things sitting down.
