Leaker spills new details about the foldable iPhone

  Leaker spills new details about the foldable iPhone A leaker says Apple is working on a second foldable iPhone prototype, but the clamshell device would not be launched anytime soon. The foldable iPhone would look like the Galaxy Z Flip phone, featuring a foldable OLED display from Samsung. The handset could get a September 2022 release date at the earliest, but there are no guarantees whatsoever. Samsung has been teasing foldable phones for years before it finally took the plunge last year. Samsung felt it was ready to launch the world’s first foldable handset, which turned out not to be the world’s first foldable. And the Galaxy Fold also turned out not to be a well-thought-out design.

Samsung is extending the return period for its newest foldable phones to 100 days, the company announced on Tuesday. That means buyers of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G and Z Flip 5G can purchase either device, use it for more than three months, and return it for a full refund. Samsung is calling this new program “Buy and Try,” and it’s the first time the company has launched a return initiative as generous as this for its mobile phones. The prior return window was 15 days.

“This new initiative will help consumers try and see if a foldable device is right for them, as part of Samsung’s commitment to making foldable devices more accessible for everyone,” a Samsung spokesperson said in a statement. Samsung says the program is launching today for purchases of either device made through its website and will run until April 1st.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold review

  Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold review As the world's first foldable PC, the ThinkPad X1 Fold is for early adopters and those who are OK using an imperfect machine. Lenovo got the design right, and as it's a ThinkPad, we don't have many durability concerns. Windows 10 isn't optimized for foldables, and it shows on the X1 Fold. What you need to know: At $2,499 with no keyboard and $2,749 with that attachment, it's expensive to say the least. Add to that its buggy software, middle-of-the-row performance and not-so-great battery life, which hold it back.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G is technically the fourth iteration of the company’s foldable line, and it released last fall as a vastly improved version of the original (and severely flawed) Galaxy Fold. It costs $1,999.99, though Samsung is currently selling the device on its website for $1,499.99 with an eligible trade-in.

The Galaxy Z Flip 5G is Samsung’s third take on a foldable phone. Following a discount, it now retails for $1,199.99, though Samsung says you can get one for as cheap as $649.99 with an eligible trade-in. Both store pages for the devices on Samsung’s website carry notices of the new 100-day return offer.
