First, green news. Samsung getting rid of plastic packaging on all its products. Environmentally-friendly packaging now.
A good move. Some reports say there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans by 20-50.
New Samsung phones . The S-10 5G, a little bigger and heavier than the S-10 Plus. It features cinema-grade color and multi-lens cameras. The 5G with a 6-point-7 inch infinity edge screen. 6-point-4 on the Plus, 6-point-1 on on the S10.
First with a 5G phone, but operating on a small number of networks later this year.
Samsung out with a foldable phone. Pocket-sized, but folding out to a 7-point-3 inch touch screen running multiple apps. This one’s available in late April. Save your folding money, two-thousand smackers for the Galaxy Fold.
Huawei (Wow-weigh) out with a foldable phone, too.
The Chinese company claims to be the leader in 5G phones. It promises super fast Internet because it helped develop the networks.
The flexible phone rocks an 8-inch display and will set you back, get a grip, 26-hundred dollars. That’s a little more than 17-thousand Yuan (U-wan).
If you’re wondering about Apple, its not expected to release a 5G phone until late next year.
More foldable stuff.
Royole (row-al) a Chinese company was the first to beat Samsung and Huawei with its foldable Android.
It has a 7-point-8 inch screen and costs around 13-hundred U.S.
The company also has a top hat with a bendable screen, featuring media player to stream content in color. Alrighty, then.
New phones and foldables, but are you impressed.
USA Today and Survey Monkey asked 13-hundred consumers about all this.
More than three-out-of-four say longer battery life is priority one.
Just over one-half say better camera quality would motivate them to upgrade.
Nearly all iPhone and Android users plan on staying with their current OS, even if they do splurge on a new phone.
