Samsung’s folding budget could cost as much as the Galaxy S22

Samsung has been one of the only brands so far that has managed to release multiple iterations of its collapsible smartphones. And it looks like the South Korean tech giant is ready to test the waters for more budget models.

according to one report (opens in new tab) by the Korean technology publication Naver, Samsung began work on the development and design affordable folding devices. The report states that the project was initiated by Samsung Electronic’s Mobile Experience (MX) division. There have been previous reports that the company was targeting a 2024 release.

Samsung aims to bring an affordable Z Flip and Z Fold version to the international market. In India, we can see smartphones available for approximately Rs 60,000. Samsung’s folding lineup of the Z Flip 3 is priced at Rs 84,999 while the Z Fold 3 is priced at Rs 1,49,999. And these were just the base model prices.

If Samsung is really working to bring the price down by more than 20%, then there will certainly be some differences in the hardware. It was also previously suggested that Samsung will add these foldables to the A-series smartphones. These would introduce the essential features that complement the foldable device and its software. The most premium features will remain exclusive to premium Z-series products.

1Password’s Latest Feature Can Solve Your Biggest Password Frustration

There are plenty of password managers out there to choose from – services that can remember all the passwords you use online – and some browsers, like Google Chrome, have this feature built into them. But most of them have a flaw that 1Password hopes to fix.

When you sign up for something, you can take one of two routes. There is the typically longer process where you provide the site with your email address, a password, and possibly some other data to create an entirely new account. Alternatively, you can choose to sign up using your account details from another service, a generally faster option. Unfortunately, the second option will not be remembered by your password manager.

Sony TV update solves annoying graphics issue for PS5 and Xbox owners

There’s great news for people who bought one of Sony’s ‘Perfect for PlayStation 5’ LED TVs from 2021 or 2022 and who play games on it using a PS5 or Xbox Series X – you’ll now be able to get full video quality and VRR ( update variable) at the same time!

Until now, enabling variable refresh rates on Sony’s LED TVs that use its XR Cognitive Processor disabled the backlight’s localized dimming feature, meaning you didn’t get as good HDR contrast if you had VRR. activated. We still rate some of these TVs as being among the best TVs for gaming due to their other great features, but that was definitely a huge frustration.

After all, Wear OS 3 doesn’t just work with Android – it can work with your iPhone

Wear OS 3 is the biggest overhaul we’ve seen for Google’s smartwatch operating system so far, but it’s also one that apparently came with a huge disappointment, as the first – and so far only – Wear OS 3 watches were the Samsung Galaxy Watch. 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic and are not compatible with iPhones.

Far from being a limitation of Wear OS 3, it seems that this is simply a limitation that Samsung has decided to impose, as the Montblanc Summit 3 was recently announced, and is confirmed to have iOS support.
