At the request of Samsung, iFixit pulls its Galaxy fold deduction

The Galaxy Fold will not set the scheduled launch date because Samsung is investigating issues with multiple testers using test equipment. In the meantime, people at iFixit have done what they do best and they have taken it apart, but on Thursday they have declared their decision to “pull back” the ripper. While iFixit usually gets a device to pull it apart, this device has obviously been provided by a third party. Samsung then asked this “trusted partner” to remove the demolition and iFixit – though he insisted that it was not necessary – to keep the peace.

Calling the device “alarmingly fragile”, iFixit noted in its today’s post, “Our team has appreciated the opportunity to look into this ambitious device, and all the new products are facing challenges – perhaps more than most.”

We still do not know exactly what Samsung might do to change the Galaxy Fold before it can get off to a good start, but it’s likely that the company does not want to reveal any issues or secrets before the product is actually sold. In any case, the demolition is now stored in the Internet Archive if someone really wants what a fold-test unit has inside, and perhaps more importantly, what may be lacking protection that allows foreign body intrusion.

Apple’s shocking new iPhone design makes sense

OnLeaks (aka Steve Hemmerstoffer) returns with cash cash and offers detailed renderings of the so-called iPhone 11 / XI and new specifications. But it’s the truly amazing size of the new iPhone’s cameras that shatters the headlines because they look different from anything Apple has ever done. Rival Instead, it’s the massive size of any lens that fills by far the largest camera expansion on the iPhone that turns her head. Questions were asked why Apple wanted an ugly triangulation, but now we know they’re just too big for proper vertical alignment. All this points to a quantum leap in iPhone photography, and this is not a moment too early. Even the most passionate Apple fan will admit that the iPhone crashes in the smartphone camera ranking for some time. Apple, a tip: do not cover it up! Hemmerstoffer also adds substance to his putti. He confirms that Apple’s iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max will remain on 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch displays, with the first screen slightly larger than the iPhone XS: 143.9 mm x 71.4 mm x 7.8 mm versus 143.6 mm x 70.9 mm x 7.7 mm. The aperture and notch will also shrink, but by such a small amount that they are “almost indistinguishable”.Finally, Hemmerstoffer shows that the iPhone 11 (like older iPads) moves from a horizontal to a vertical mute button, the rear microphone is repositioned at the bottom of the camera floor, the lighting connector remains and the back panel becomes “new and unique”. Single piece of glass. That sounds interesting, but it’s likely to increase Apple’s infamous repair cost for glass backs.

How much should you trust this information? Due to the remarkable successes of Hemmerstoffer I would suggest a lot.

Are there any potential for game-changing cameras to rekindle interest in a still-ugly iPhone that lacks 5G? Could be. I suspect that this will not be enough to stop Apple’s sluggish iPhone sales, but it could slow them down enough to buy Apple time until the truly groundbreaking iPhone arrives.

Verizon announces official pricing for the Galaxy S10 5G and is certainly not cheap

With a huge 6.7-inch screen, a large 4,600 mAh battery, a 3D time-of-flight sensor and, of course, a built-in 5G modem, we knew the Galaxy S10 5G would not be cheap. But now that Verizon has officially announced the pricing for the S10 5G, we finally have an idea of ​​how hard Samsung’s first 5G phone will hit your wallet. For the base model with 256 GB of storage space, the Galaxy S10 5G costs $ 54 a month for $ 24 months, resulting in a full retail price of $ 1,300. And if you choose a model with 512GB of memory, you’re at $ 1,400. That’s almost double the price of Verizon’s only current 5G phone – the Moto Z3 – which, combined with a 5G Moto mod, gives a total price of $ 680. To attract potential 5G pioneers, Verizon offers on the Galaxy S10 5G offers discounts of up to $ 650 and a free “Samsung VIP Kit”. However, first read the fine print For $ 650, you must be a new Verizon customer and sign up for an unlimited plan to receive a prepaid debit card of $ 200, and then enter a promo code after you receive your new service Line. To get the remainder of that $ 650 discount, you’ll need to trade an old phone, which must essentially be an iPhone, Galaxy, Pixel, or a LG flagship made in the past two years to be the Full $ 450 to get a trade-in.

 

The only bonus you can really get is the Samsung VIP Kit – which includes a free pair of Galaxy Buds, a wireless charging battery and a free water bottle (lol). The only requirement for the kit is to preorder a S10 G5 by May 15 and then register your device in the Samsung Shop app.

In addition to the pricing of the S10 5G, Verizon announced that it will adjust prices for its 5G plans by eliminating support for the 5G service from the company’s lowest-cost Go Unlimited plan. In other words, if you have a 5G phone, live in a 5G city, and want 5G service, you’ll need to pay for Beyond Unlimited or Above Unlimited, each starting at $ 50 per month per line. Finally, Verizon Announced In addition to cities with existing 5G services, which include Chicago and Minneapolis, Verizon will expand 5G coverage to another 20 cities in 2019. These cities include: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, Providence, San Diego, Salt Lake City and Washington DC , However, I would also recommend this for someone who lives in a place with 5G coverage and if you are considering a 5G phone, you should probably wait until first. As I’ve seen testing Verizon’s 5G network in Chicago, while 5G offers some ridiculous download speeds, the cover is spotty and generally requires you to be outside, as walls, some windows, and other obstructions prevent the 5G 4G LTE speeds.Then quickly reduce speeds to regular levels, after considering the price of a new 5G phone and the additional 10-month month, it will be chargeable to 5G service (which will void Verizon for the first few months) ), and you’re looking for too much money for not a ton of upside potential. At least for 2019, 5G will be an incredibly difficult sell.

Nintendo’s digital sales are nearly twice as high as in the past fiscal year

It may not look like that, but Nintendo has been selling games digitally for many years. Over time, these special revenues have become an increasingly important part of the company’s performance. During the recent financial results, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa informed that the latest digital sales figures are almost twice as high as in the previous fiscal year. For the first time Nintendo has also exceeded the value of 100 billion yen: In March 2019, sales almost doubled compared to the previous fiscal year, reaching over 100 billion yen for the first time. “The graph below is a long one: comparing digital sales on Nintendo’s dedicated video game platforms, including NSO memberships, based on the elapsed portion of the subscription term: Furukawa also pointed out how additional content revenue had improved:

“The Nintendo Switch business has expanded year over year, not just in terms of software package download versions, but download software and content, as well as contributions from Nintendo Switch Online.”
