We don’t talk a lot about Europe here, but this week, Gizmodo will be in Germany, drinking beer, mangling Teutonic languages and covering IFA, the biggest electronics show in Europe. Here’s what you can expect to see based on rumours, pre-announcements, and a little educated guesswork. Be sure to check back for all our coverage through the weekend and beyond.

LG’s next dual-display phone

IFA’s not quite the big phone-focused event it once was. Still, LG is expected to launch some kind of folding phone at its press conference on September 6. It teased it with the video above earlier last month.

Technology can help make society more resilient in the face of pandemic and other threats. During the COVID-19 pandemic, technologies are playing a crucial role in keeping our society functional in a time of lockdowns and quarantines. And these technologies may have a long-lasting impact beyond

In China, these expected mental health effects are already being reported in the first research papers about the lockdown. In cases where parents were quarantined with children, the Educate people about the expected psychological impact and reactions to trauma if they are interested in receiving it.

We don’t have a lot of details on the phone. We know it’s the second dual-display phone from LG after the LG V50 Thinq was shown at MWC in February.

Earlier this week, LG announced a partnership with Naver, a popular South Korean search engine, to create a new browser optimised for dual screens. The browser, Whale, will be introduced at IFA alongside whatever new dual-screen phone LG has planned.

Engadget Japan also reported on an LG phone dubbed the G8X that it thinks will be at the show. The phone has a Snapdragon 855 processor, a headphone jack, and an in-display fingerprint reader. It’s not clear if it’s the same thing as the folding phone, or simply a cheaper version of the LG G8 already being sold.

A bunch of other phones probably not available globally

LG won’t be the only company announcing phones. Sony typically has an Xperia device or two at IFA, and TCL and Blackberry could also have something. Huawei and its brand Honour aren’t expected to announce any major devices, though, they’ve debuted phones at IFA in the past, so who knows.

Why a ‘Brexit Election’ Will Make Things Worse

Why a ‘Brexit Election’ Will Make Things Worse A national vote in the run-up to Britain’s deadline to withdraw from the European Union will be dangerous.

The meetings of the Federal Reserve and the European Central Bank this week are likely to show that these systemically important institutions continue to gradually move away from the policy approach they adopted to contain the trauma of the global financial crisis from 2010 to 2017.

Should uncertainty persist, technology and momentum stocks that have led this year's rally may be particularly vulnerable to a selloff, some investors said. Germany is proposing that only countries who respect the rule of law could benefit from the funds amid growing alarm in the European Union about

Nokia will almost certainly have something. It already confirmed that it will announce both smart and feature phones in Berlin.

More 8K televisions

IFA is increasingly a place where TV makers try to make a splash and 2019 will be no different. Sharp has already confirmed it plans to show off the “biggest” 8K TV yet. It should be an eye-bleeding 120-inch set which also comes equipped with 5G.

Other TV makers, including Samsung, Philips, Hisense, and TCL, will also be present. Samsung launched an 8K TV earlier this year, and it could have another.

Philips is one of the few TV makers that hasn’t flaunted a multimillion pixel monstrosity yet, so maybe we’ll hear some noise on that front. There aren’t many rumours about Hisense or TCL, but they’ll both be around flogging their latest gear.

Something Walkman related

Sony will hold a press conference on September 6. The focus of the event will likely be new phones and a home entertainment product or two.

It's Jacob Reezzzzz-Mogg! Tory Brexiteer shuts his eyes and lounges on the Commons green benches during key debate

It's Jacob Reezzzzz-Mogg! Tory Brexiteer shuts his eyes and lounges on the Commons green benches during key debate Leader of the House Jacob Rees-Mogg was seen reclining on the front bench, at times with his eyes closed, as the Commons discussed plans to pass legislation which would stop No Deal Brexit.

Others agreed. Russia’s economic ‘meltdown’ had caused Putin’s popularity to “plummet,” headlines said, citing the latest data from polling company Levada, which showed Putin’s approval rating at near historic lows, albeit at levels which the average Western politician would die for.

Economists expect the payroll data to show a loss of 293,000 jobs - the largest monthly drop since July 2009. The ECB’s aggressive action gives them some breathing space but, as of now, politicians are wrangling over setting up a credit line worth some 2% of annual output from the euro area bailout fund.

The company announced numerous cameras and headphones over the winter, so it might not have much to say in those categories.

With the 40th anniversary of the Walkman just past us, there’s a possibility Sony could seize the moment to push out some nostalgia play. That hasn’t always gone well.

Something absurd from Acer

Acer will hold a press conference on September 6, and it will likely focus on lovely laptops that will be affordable and super thin.

The company also usually has something stunty and fun. A few years ago it trotted out a 21-inch curved display that my editor made me take home on the subway in a 32kg Pelican case.

Last year, Acer had a giant throne of monitors that I am mad I still haven’t gotten to sit in. We’re not sure what the big wacky something else will be this year, but we are suitably excited.

A Sonos portable speaker

We already know Sonos plans to have an event at IFA, and given that a new Bluetooth speaker from the company has already leaked, we’ve got a good idea of what we’re going to see!

Jennifer Aniston discusses how The Morning Show differs from Friends

Jennifer Aniston discusses how The Morning Show differs from Friends "I crawled into my bed for a solid week." Aniston and Witherspoon pitched the idea to Apple, and it was subsequently picked up as one of the first shows for the company's new streaming service. "This was something that didn't even have walls yet," she explained. "It's so exciting to be a part of that". "When we found out that we were among one of the first shows to be bought by Apple, Reese and I both had this pinch-me moment," the star further explained. "The first women to help launch a network as actors and producers, having a beautiful piece of that pie that we really earned and deserved.

Last week , the Chinese web portal Sina dubbed Russia's Avangard hypersonic missile system a “more intimidating weapon than a nuclear bomb.” According to Putin, Russia was forced to create hypersonic weapons after the US withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile (ABM) Treaty in 2002.

Some technologies develop so fast that there’s not enough time to train the necessary personnel and there might be none among current specialists. “The conditions for the IT market are determined by the candidates themselves and employers have to adapt,” said Germershausen.

The device will reportedly be a portable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speaker that’s larger than the Sonos One. We still have no idea on battery life, availability, or if it supports Alexa or Google Assistant (though Winfuture reported it has six microphones built in).

A release date for the Samsung Galaxy Fold

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is sure to be one of those phones we’ll all think about when looking back at 2019. Announced with enormous fanfare, worshipped, and then ridiculed when reviewers accidentally pried their phones apart.

The company has been fixing the flaws for the last few months and promised a new release date. With the Note 11 already out it stands to reason that the big Samsung phone news at IFA this year will be Fold related.

A recent report by Korean outlet Yonhap, spotted by Android Central, supports this notion. If the rumours are true, expect the Fold to finally launch September 7, the first day of IFA.

So many laptops

AMD probably won’t have any news at IFA, but Intel already announced a whole slew of new mobile processors.

Mobile GPU maker Nvidia is slated for an appearance. Acer, Lenovo, Toshiba, and Samsung all have press conferences planned, and Asus usually has a presence. That means you can expect a whole lot of laptops with brand new CPUs and GPUs.

Boris Johnson 'could go to jail if he refuses to delay Brexit'

Boris Johnson 'could go to jail if he refuses to delay Brexit' The former director of public prosecutions has told Sky News that Boris Johnson could go to prison if he refuses to delay Brexit in the face of court action. The prime minister has said he will not agree an extension, despite parliament passing a law forcing him to do so. Lord MacDonald, who held the senior prosecutor post between 2003 and 2008, said legal action would mean a court ordering that "the law should be followed". "A refusal in the face of that would amount to contempt of court which could find that person in prison", he said.

It isn’t clear if these will be laptops with new designs, or simply dozens and dozens of spec bumps. Intel has been pushing a new design initiative, Project Athena, that promises thin laptops that don’t compromise battery life or performance. We should expect to see a device or two at IFA.

A super flexible vibrator

MysteryVibe is a funky sex toy company known for making a very flexible vibrator. Currently, it produces the Crescendo, a super flexible vibe that calls to mind a slap bracelet. (I once attempted to use one as a slap bracelet, and my wrist would not recommend it.)

We have no idea what the company’s planning for its press conference on September 6, but it will probably involve silicone and the flexibility of a talented gymnast.

A whole lot of wearables

Do you like watches? Do you like watches with big displays and all sorts of sensors crammed into their sizeable cases? Then you’ll love IFA!

Fitbit has already announced the new Fitbit Versa 2, but new details about its optional service, Fitbit Premium, could pop up.

Garmin, meanwhile, just announced a watch that can be charged by the sun. However it also has a press conference planned for September 6, and Winfuture reports that it will be rolling out quite a few more watches, including some with coaching features similar to those found in Fitbit Premium.

Droidlife reports that we’ll also see a respectable slate of wearOS devices thanks to unearthed FCC filings. The devices, all produced by Fossil, will have fashion brands attached to them, including Michael Kors, Diesel, Armani, Misfit and Kate Spade.
