Galaxy S10 In-Display Fingerprint Reader Confirmed In Official Samsung Pay App

It is very likely that Samsung engages in controlled leaks of upcoming products, a strategy that has worked well for Apple over the years. Some intentional leaks are more blatant than others. For example, the South Korean electronics maker has updated its Samsung Pay app with references to an in-display fingerprint sensor, which is a rumored feature of the Galaxy S10. Well, it was a rumored feature, up until now. Samsung has essentially confirmed that the Galaxy S10 will in fact boast an in-display fingerprint sensor. The references in the…

Weekly poll: vivo NEX Dual Display, hot or not?

A poll from a month ago showed that people are interested in the extra functionality provided by a second screen. The vivo NEX Dual Display is the latest and, perhaps, most exciting addition to that genre. So, did vivo nail it or not?

Both have 1080p resolution, but different aspect ratios (19.5:9 and 16:9, respectively). So, what can you do…

How do you imagine the phones in three years? Foldable? Bezel-less? With invisible cameras? Powered by new long-lasting batteries? I could get behind a few of those ideas, sure. But bezel-less – that can’t be the way forward. While I agree that the sooner we get rid of those awful notches the better, the bezel-less dream should be put to rest, too. I know this is the unpopular opinion, but just bear with me for a while. I was once…

Apple finally releases a case for the iPhone XR

The company definitely took its time on this one, but Apple has now finally made the first official case for the iPhone XR available through its online store. Apple usually has an assortment of cases ready at the moment of any of its new smartphones’ release, but for some reason this hasn’t happened for the XR. Don’t get too excited, though – it’s just one option at the moment, a clear case. It lets you show off the XR’s design while also protecting…
