Leaked Samsung Galaxy Fold Video Shows Off A Very Obvious Crease

Samsung has been very secretive with their Galaxy Fold smartphone. They officially unveiled it at their Unpacked event in February, but even then the phone was kept behind a glass and no one was allowed to touch it. Now thanks to a recently leaked video, it seems that someone had managed to get their hands on the handset and we have to say that we’re not that impressed.

For starters it appears that the crease between displays is very obvious and due to the use of plastic displays, we’d hate to imagine how much more obvious the crease will be over time with repeated openings and closings (although it was suggested that Samsung could offer free screen replacements).

Also the side notch on the phone is huge and is a stark departure from the punch-hole displays that Samsung used with the Galaxy S10. Also the phone, when folded, has massive bezels on the top and bottom which we are definitely not a fan of, and it suggests that the device is meant to be used opened rather than closed.

That being said, we can totally forgive Samsung for these alleged flaws. This is because the Galaxy Fold is pretty much one of the first of its kind. This means that kinks are to be expected which hopefully will be ironed out in future models, but for now and for a device that is priced close to $2,000, we can’t say we’re too impressed with it.

Android Users In Europe Will Soon Be Asked Which Browser The Want To Use

Some of you might recall that many years ago, Microsoft ran into some antitrust issues where they were accused of forcing Internet Explorer onto its Windows users. Clearly that has set a precedent because over in Europe, Google has run into similar problems where back in 2018, the company was hit with a $5 billion fine by the EU.

The company has since made some changes where in an announcement on its blog, Google has revealed that for Android users living in Europe, they will now be given a choice and asked which browser they want to use and even which search applications they might prefer, even if it does not necessarily mean using Chrome or Google search.

Android has always allowed users to choose their own preferred apps for launching certain actions, but we suppose that might not have always been clear. These changes will make it so that users are aware that if they do want to change their browser from Chrome to Firefox or Opera or Edge, they can go ahead and do so.

According to Google, “After the Commission’s July 2018 decision, we changed the licensing model for the Google apps we build for use on Android phones, creating new, separate licenses for Google Play, the Google Chrome browser, and for Google Search. In doing so, we maintained the freedom for phone makers to install any alternative app alongside a Google app.”
