Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 Case Leaks Showing A Slightly Different Aspect Ratio

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 is a great foldable smartphone, but perhaps its main issue is the overly tall aspect ratio of its external screen, which makes typing not a great experience. According to a new leak out of China today, that niggle might get improved in the next generation. Seen below is a transparent case for the Galaxy Z Fold3, next to a couple of shots of what is purported to be a similar case for the upcoming Galaxy Z Fold4. The latter has a bit more width to it, implying that the cover screen's aspect ratio has been slightly improved, making it less tall than that of the...

Gsmarena We Are Introducing Reactions To Our Comment Section

More and more people prefer to use text communication instead of using their phones for, well, phone calls. But text has limitations – it can’t carry emotion or even simple gestures like a nod or a thumbs up. Emojis solved that problem, especially when used for reactions. We use reactions all the time for our internal communications and we thought that they would have real benefit for our comment sections. The simple upvote system that we added a few years ago wasn’t particularly expressive. You can still upvote a comment you like and agree with – that will be represented with a “thumbs...

Samsung May Cut Smartphone Production By 30m Units

According to a new report from a reputable South Korean news publication, Samsung will produce 30 million fewer smartphones in 2022.

Steamos 32 Update Adds Refresh Rate Settings Quieter Fan Curve To The Steam Deck

Got a Steam Deck? Lucky you. Anyway, if you haven’t already, you should install the SteamOS 3.2 update that just released, which quiets down the noisy fan and gives you more options to extend battery life along with other improvements. With version 3.2 the Steam Deck can be switched from the default 60Hz display refresh rate to 40Hz. Then you can set a frame limiter, typically to something like 40, 20 or even 10fps.

Periscope Camera Reportedly Coming To The iPhone 15
