SAMSUNG'S foldable smartphone is finally expected to launch today – and leaked designs suggest it's enormous. The gadget folds out into a full-size tablet, and raises the obvious question: are smartphones simply too big now? The device, known through leaks and rumours as either the Galaxy X or Galaxy F, has been an ongoing project at Samsung for years. Last month, Samsung posted a tweet that teased a possible reveal at its annual Developer Conference on November 7. And today Reuters reports that Samsung will go ahead with a partial reveal of the phone's design and features at the event. "Samsung Electronics Co will depart from its usual policy of keeping product plans highly secret and provide some details of the phone’s key features for app developers this week," the report read. A Samsung official is quoted as saying: "Unlike our flagship products, the foldable phone is a completely new concept in terms of design and user experience, which requires a different approach. … [Read more...] about Samsung Galaxy X foldable phone could launch today – but is it TOO big?

APPLE has come under fire from feminists who say iPhones are now too big for women to hold. Earlier this week, Apple revealed its largest-screen iPhones yet, and discontinued its famously small iPhone SE model too. When the iPhone first launched in 2007, it had a screen size of just 3.5 inches. But this week, Apple debuted three new phones: the 5.8-inch iPhone XS, the 6.1-inch iPhone XR, and the 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max. Apple also decided to stop selling the 4-inch iPhone SE, the last hope for people with small hands. Now women say they're left without a choice. Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, feminist activist Caroline Criado Perez – who was behind Parliament Square's Millicent Fawcett statue and the Jane Austen £10 note – said: "I genuinely have RSI from having an iPhone 6, and it went as soon as I switched to an iPhone SE. "It genuinely does affect women's hand health, women do buy more iPhones than men, it just baffles me that Apple doesn't design with our … [Read more...] about Apple slammed by feminists who say iPhones are now TOO BIG for women
There’s just one week to go until Nvidia’s big Gamescom surprise, but will it be the arrival of their new Nvidia Turing graphics cards or something else entirely – something, perhaps, like a bolt from the blue shock announcement about their upcoming Big Format Gaming Displays? We won’t know for sure until next Monday, but just in case Nvidia do pull a fast one on us, here’s a quick refresher on everything we know about Nvidia’s BFGDs so far, including who’s making them, what their specs are, and how they might finally make PC gaming in the living room a reality. Nvidia BFGD: What are they and who’s making them? First announced back in January 2018, Nvidia’s Big Format Gaming Displays (or BFGDs for short) are essentially the PC gaming equivalent of a living room TV – and they look as though they could be some of the best gaming monitors of all time. I’ll get into why that is in a second, but before we do get into the … [Read more...] about Nvidia’s BFGD: Everything we know so far about their Big Format Gaming Displays
Did you notice how many of God of War’s big reveals were hiding in plain sight? God of War is a game of many triumphs. It has satisfying combat, and a world big enough to encourage exploration that somehow never overstays its welcome. It’s also a game fond of hiding something worthwhile around every corner, pushing you to scour every cranny if it means spending more time in its gorgeous world. Underlining it all is a coherent story with a clear beginning, middle, and end. God of War’s story is relatively straightforward, even if the game spends time teasing much bigger stakes that don’t ever come into play. But one thing you may not notice in your first playthrough is how so much foreshadowing there is of major plot points. Many voice lines you brush off, and many encounters and quotes you never think twice about end up having more meaning than you initially realise. Make it to the end, and you’re rewarded with context. As I sat back taking the ending in, … [Read more...] about How God of War hides its big story reveals in plain sight
Not too long ago, a fan of Epic Games and People Can Fly’s multiplayer sandbox survival title Fortnite designed a fine-looking Black Panther skin influenced by the suit that T’Challa wears in the successful Marvel superhero movie. Not to be outdone themselves, a couple of twin graphic designers known as The Sneaky Bros have taken inspiration from popular films to create mock-ups of potential skins modeled after characters from V for Vendetta and The Big Lebowski. As seen below in The Sneaky Bros’ concept art for their crossover skins, both V from V for Vendetta and The Dude from The Big Lebowski get the Fortnite Battle Royale treatment, with the former being dubbed “Masked Martyr” and the latter called “Duder Looter.” What’s more is that both of the designs for the characters’ pickaxes draw from themes and props found within the films, with V having a rose affixed atop a knife, while The Dude’s is built around one of his … [Read more...] about Fortnite Battle Royale Fans Design V for Vendetta, Big Lebowski Skins
