    MKBHD:
    • that thin layer that appeared to be a screen protector but is actually part of the display that might have been peeled off by some people; that's now extended all the way into the edges, and it's tucked underneath the display bezel right at the corners and the side, so not only you don't mistake it as a screen protector and try to peel it, but you physically can't, so that's good.
    • they've added these T-shaped tabs, at the top and the bottom of the display right at the hinge to prevent any dust or debris from basically getting into the hinge itself
    • the gap the hinge makes when the phone is closed is a little bit smaller, so you can see it still crack in the middle, but just barely
    • the hinge mechanism itself is a little more firm, and I realised this comparison means pretty much nothing to anyone because almost nobody has felt the hinge of the original galaxy fold, but I am noticing it has a more firm snap to placing it flat, and then unsnapping it from flat. (...) there's a new warning on the screen during the setup process that includes a warning to avoid pressing the screen hard, because it's still true that if you dig your fingernails into the plastic or accidentally scratch the protective layer at the top, or even just press it way too hard, you can actually damage the galaxy fold.

    • the protective layer now goes under the bezels, to prevent self-peeling and subsequently user-urge-to-peel
    • the corners of the hinge are now covered to prevent ingress (the verge had a bit of putty go in underneath the screen previously)
    • the spine of the hinge has a thinner gap now, although time will tell if the chassis covers would still give way
    • the overall folding action is now stiffer. the side effect being users need to apply more force to disengage the flattened-out position, which means more force being applied to the screen






     




    there're still more to make folding screens be a viable thing (c'mon small-radius gorilla glass and compliant-mechanism unibody hinge-chassis), but otherwise i think it's now something that might survive longer if it's well babied




     




    cool. can't wait to try it out in stores and not buy one




     




    EDIT: for what it's worth, notice how Dave closes his Fold ._.

    • Nationwide ban of Galaxy S10 Fingerprint Reader - fingerprint log in removed from banking app
      by Dudicrous
      Related to the recent security flaw found with the Galaxy S/Note 10 series, which you can read more about below 





      Banks in the UK have decided that the flaw with the fingerprint reader is too much of a compromise for its customers and have started removing the fingerprint option for the app. 




      At the moment it's just Nationwide and Natwest that have done so, but I wouldn't be surprised if others followed suit.

    • Intel Xe GPU release date, specs, and performance
      by Dudicrous
      The Intel Xe GPU represents Intel’s first foray into discrete graphics since the ill-fated Larrabee project many years ago. But let’s not dwell on the past, this is a bright new future for Intel, and potentially PC gamers too, as it means we’re going to have a genuine third player in the graphics market and that can only be a good thing. For us, at least.
      • It looks likely that the initial Xe GPUs will largely be based on the building blocks put in place by the Ice Lake Gen11 graphics architect

    • Verizon can't cover a basketball stadium with 5G
      by Dudicrous


      Quote





      Verizon on Friday announced that its 5G network is now available in three NBA arenas and is coming to seven more by the end of the 2019-2020 basketball season. But there's a big caveat, just like there is with Verizon's 5G coverage in NFL stadiums: Verizon 5G only covers some of the seating areas.

      Quote





      TeamSpeak, one of the most popular voice communication apps for gaming before Discord came along and took over the world, is returning with a new look. The team behind the software has kicked off a closed beta for a completely new application that does away with the old school setup for something that will obviously be compared to what Discord offers.

      The admission comes following rumors that the company had been breached. It first emerged that NordVPN had an expired internal private key exposed, potentially allowing anyone to spin out their own servers imitating NordVPN.
