The smartphone's 120Hz FullHD+ folding screen measures 6.74" diagonally, while the cover display has a diagonal of 3".

Galaxy Z Fold5 And Z Flip5 May Get Separate Launch Event For North America In August
Samsung has confirmed that it's holding its next Unpacked unveiling event in its home of Korea, in the last week of July. However, the plot now thickens, as a new report claims there will be a separate Unpacked event for the North American markets (the US and Canada), which will take place in August. Or rather, on August 11, to be precise. That would be a bit over two weeks after July 26, which is when the initial Unpacked is rumored to happen in Korea (Samsung still hasn't confirmed the actual date, for whatever reason). Unfortunately the source of this information hasn't shared...

This prevents the phone from running warmer during use, such as...

Vivo Closes Its German Online Store
After Oppo and OnePlus stopped sales in Germany last summer, following a lawsuit from Nokia, vivo is now closing down its online store as well. Back in April, the German court ruled in favor of Nokia as vivo has apparently infringed a Nokia patent related to the WLAN connections in vivo's smartphones. The same reason why Oppo and OnePlus had to temporarily pull out from the German market. Without much of a warning, vivo's website is now closed and German consumers can no longer buy a vivo smartphone in the country. The German branch now greets you with a short statement that vivo's...

He said that Apple didn't find "magical solutions" to the constraints of physics that Meta's teams haven't already explored. He notes Apple's use of higher-resolution displays but adds that it requires more energy to power, a battery and a wire...

Our review of the Realme 11 Pro+ is already out, so let's focus on the Realme 11 Pro now. The Realme 11 Pro comes in a yellow-colored retail package like the Pro+ model, and its in-box contents are also identical, except you get an 80W SuperVOOC charger with the Realme 11 Pro instead of the 100W GaN charger that comes bundled with the Pro+. Realme didn't put pictures of its new brand ambassador Shah Rukh Khan for the smartphones category on the retail package as it did years ago...

Android 14 Beta 3 Packs New Stulysspecific Features
Android 14's third beta is out now and some of its features attract the attention of code tinkerers. The most interesting is a set of stylus-specific settings that might hint at Google's plans for a stylus for the Pixel Tablet (or dare we hope - the Pixel Fold). Code inside the Beta 3 reveals that the software will be able to recognize and set different functions to the different buttons on a stylus. There's a code line for the primary button (the one closest to the tip), for the secondary, a tertiary, and the tail button (the one near or at the top). You'll also be able to set the...

Sony Xperia Proi Ii Might Have Two 10 Type Sensors
Sony's Xperia Pro-I arrived on the scene back in late 2021, so it's clearly high time for a replacement in the series. That might be exactly what the Japanese company is currently working on, if we are to believe a new rumor on the matter. The renders you can see in this post have been leaked, purportedly depicting the upcoming Xperia Pro-I II. As you can see, this has two huge cameras, which has led to speculation that it would actually ship with two 1.0" Type sensors - by comparison, its predecessor "only" had one, for the main shooter.

Xiaomi 13 Ultra Is Dxomarks 14th Best Cameraphone
We called the Xiaomi 13 Ultra the most versatile smartphone camera money can buy in our review, but it didn't impress DXOMARK nearly as much it seems.
