Lego announces its own foldable device with an 'infinite' battery

Samsung Galaxy S10 comes with an all-new display called Infinity O and featuring a punch hole design for the front-facing camera, and given it's a new technology, it makes sense to be the most expensive component.

Samsung has finally launched its latest Galaxy S-series smartphones in India.

Between Unpacked and MWC, the past few weeks have been all about foldable phones. Similar to the way its Galaxy Note opened the door to a rush on big phones, Samsung clearly hopes that it can once again lead the way into a growing market as smartphone sales cool off.

IT LOOKS LIKE so-called "foldables" won't be a short-lived fad after all, as Samsung is reportedly developing two more flexible gadgets. Anything that makes replacing the charging port more hard is a major negative.

After that, we can apparently expect to see rollable and stretchable screens from Samsung on future devices. This will be joined or followed by another device that is said to fold outwards like the Huawei Mate X. A crease appears on the device's display after it's been folded around 10,000 times, which could be a major problem for customers.

The innovative touch sensor of the S10 proved impossible to extract from the screen, leading the gang to conclude that should the sensor break, the user is going to have to fork out for a new display.

Samsung can now produce approximately 2.4 million foldable display a year.

All in all, TechInsights estimates that it takes about $420 for Samsung to manufacture one unit of the Galaxy S10 Plus.

"No one knows what the ideal design is yet", said Bryan Ma, vice president of devices research at IDC. The results are never good with modern smartphones, but this is a new low point for Samsung - the Galaxy S10 is even harder to fix than the Galaxy S9. However, it seems the company is unlikely to arrive at a solution anytime soon and is instead considering a free screen replacement program.
