ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsVideo games may change as we know it, thanks to a new space that is going to be occupied by Google and even Apple. Companies like Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony need to be on the fence, as Google is about to enter the highly profitable video game business with Project Stream. Game Developer's Conference is about to take place next month and Google is said to unveil its gaming streaming service. The invitations were sent out for the March 19 keynote, however, did not mention the topic of discussion. © Gooogle The gaming unit is going to be building on the success of Project Stream where games will be running on the cloud and streamed directly to a PC, Tablet, TV or anything that has a display. The experience, however, still remains to be seen as the games will be streamed, and different types of internet connections may affect the overall experience. Laggy connections are a major concern when streaming games which could be a huge factor when considering a streaming service. The new streaming service is said to compete directly with Steam, the Epic Games Store and even consoles. Google is not the only tech giant that is looking into the video games industry, rumours suggest that even Apple is also looking at announcing its own version of a gaming console or a subscription service. © Gooogle Currently, Sony's streaming service called PlayStation Now offers 650 games on the PlayStation 4 which includes classic and catalogue titles. Microsoft is also looking into the game streaming, as the company has started public trials for Project xCloud which will let gamers stream Xbox One games to computer, phones and tablets. Would you stream games on your Tablet, PC or Smartphone? Let us know in the comments if Google's new project excites you. Source: Fortune
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsWe've been talking about a foldable smartphone by Samsung for years and it seems like the company will finally reveal the smartphone. We will finally get a glimpse at Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event on February 20 as the company teased the smartphone via a tweet. The South Korean company tweeted with the caption “The future of mobile will unfold,” which basically confirms that it would at least give consumers a glimpse into the foldable smartphone which is said to open and close like a book. The future of mobile will unfold on February 20, 2019. #SamsungEvent pic.twitter.com/MHvwrt7Rf4 — Samsung Mobile (@SamsungMobile) February 11, 2019 We've already seen the prototype of the phone back in November when Samsung showed off the foldable phone encased in a bulky cover. Justin Denison, Samsung Electronics America SVP and GM, indicated that the phone was hidden in the case so that the true design could be revealed at its official launch which looks like it will be happening in eight days. © Twitter Denison also detailed that the smartphone could not only expand to seven inches but also run three apps at the same time. It is said to have a very sleek appearance with a screen that “had to be thinner than any other.” © Twitter/CNet Samsung Vietnam may have actually revealed the design of the phone earlier this month in a teaser video that is now deleted. Samsung is not the only phone maker that has been working on a foldable smartphone as Rouyu and LG both plan to launch their foldable device later this year.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsSamsung has been talking about a foldable phone for the last few years, and it is eager to be the first one to launch such a phone. The company has been working on foldable phones for years now and we've already seen many patents and leaks, suggesting that the company is close to accomplishment. During an interview on CNBC, DJ Koh, the CEO of the company's mobile division, said that “it's time to deliver” a foldable device. The report further adds, Koh “hinted that more details of the device could be unveiled this year at the Samsung Developer Conference in November in San Francisco,” © YouTube Koh has been pretty vocal about the project since its start and had previously suggested that the technology requires a lot of work and that Samsung doesn't want to push out an unpolished product in the market. "We want to hear that Samsung Electronics made a quality product when we showcase a foldable phone on the market," Koh said in August. CNBC says Koh declined to say whether the foldable phone will be launched this year, but he did say Samsung has "nearly concluded" the "complicated" development process for the phone. © Samsung The South Korean giant is now locked in a battle with Huawei, who is also trying to be the first one to release a foldable phone. Samsung definitely seems to be having an edge because of its self-researched and developed OLED displays and past history of working on bendable displays. "We are focused on bringing innovations favoured by consumers, rather than just becoming the world's first. In terms of the foldable phone, however, we do not want to miss the first spot," Koh stated early this year. © LG's Foldable Display Panel We do not know how the phone may look or what it might be capable of, as we've only seen patent applications for now. The company has successfully managed to keep a tight lid on the development, unlike Google's Pixel 3. © Samsung Samsung released a concept advertisement for a potential foldable phone back in 2014. It featured a device with a bendable display that folded from a more tablet-like size into a small phone. It'll be interesting to see how the actual product works out.
