Samsung Galaxy Z flip gets official renders, full spec sheet

Ars Technica - 1 hour 22 min ago

Samsung's next foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip, is expected to be shown off in full at the February 11 "Galaxy Unpacked" event. But to tide you over until then, a set of official renders and a full spec sheet have been posted by the German site WinFuture.

The pictures show a phone that shares a lot of DNA with Samsung's first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold. Just like on the Fold, there's a raised bezel around the edge. On the Fold, this held the display to the body of the device and protected it while it was closed. The bezel was also pretty annoying, though: Android features several edge gestures, and trying to swipe in from the side or bottom of the device is awkward when the bezel isn't flush with the display. We can also see the same T-shaped hinge caps that were added to the second, post-recall version of the Galaxy Fold after it was delayed.

Like the Galaxy Fold, it sounds like the Z Flip is going to have a creased display and close into a wedge shape so it doesn't crush the display crease. WinFuture lists two thickness dimensions for when it's closed: 15.3mm and 17.3mm, which would be the tall and short side of the wedge. Several pictures show the phone in an L shape, like a tiny little laptop. WinFuture's report suggests that Samsung will pitch this as a way to easily see the phone while it's on a table.

Hundreds of Amazon employees on Monday issued statements blasting their own employer and calling for the company to do more to fight climate change. Some employees also praised Amazon's decision last September to order 100,000 electric vans—part of the company's climate change initiative. But others argued that Amazon's policies so far are inadequate given the scale of the climate change problem.

"Amazon can and should do more," wrote Amazon employee Nolan Woodle. "We should end our contracts with oil and gas companies that are using our services to locate, drill for, and extract fossil fuels."

"Big Tech has the opportunity to not only change the world but change the planet," wrote another employee, Rabecca Rocha.

An outbreak of a never-before-seen coronavirus that causes viral pneumonia has continued to surge in China, with over 4,500 confirmed cases and over 100 deaths.

Nearly all of the cases and all of the deaths are reported from China. But there have been small numbers of cases in travelers to other countries, including: Australia, Cambodia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, the Republic of Korea, the United States, and Vietnam.

Five travel-related cases have been confirmed in the United States, according to officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Arizona, Washington, and Illinois have each reported one case, and California has reported two cases. All of the cases had connections to Wuhan, the capital city of the central Hubei province, where the outbreak erupted.
