Samsung Galaxy X Foldable Smartphone Will Be Crushed By This Xiaomi Rival

Published

on

Samsung

It’s no secret that Samsung is hard at work on a folding flagship smartphone, dubbed Galaxy X, that sports two separate screens, including a flexible OLED panel that unfolds like the central pages of a paperback novel. After briefly revealing a heavily-disguised prototype of the new device during its annual developer conference in San Fransisco back in November 2018, Samsung has kept shtum.

But while we haven’t heard anything from the Galaxy X in a while, Samsung’s competitors certainly aren’t hanging about. With Huawei seemingly already at work on a rival foldable phone, serial leaker Evan Blass has now revealed what appears to be a competitor from Haidian District-based firm.

While there’s no shortage of companies working on folding phones, every firm has a slightly different approach to the emerging trend – while Samsung plans to use two screens on its device, Chinese company Royole has a single screen that folds once.

The advantage of these folding screens is allowing smartphone owners to increase the amount of screen real estate on a whim. While larger phablet-sized devices have become increasingly popular amongst consumers, the mammoth displays can be cumbersome to use – especially one-handed.

Being able to unfurl the full display before watching a film, but folding it away when texting on the move could e solve this problem once and for all, manufacturers hope.

Xiaomi recently announced plans to hold a press conference on January 10, 2019 where it’s expected to announce plans to spin-off its Redmi range into a separate sub-brand. Perhaps there will be time for a surprise announcement as well?

In the clip, shared on social media website Twitter, the tablet-sized device can be seen navigating around the Google Maps interface before both sides are folded backwards to create a smartphone-like form factor.

It’s unclear from the short video, but the flexible smartphone is likely to be much thicker than a standard handset, given the way the screen folds back on itself twice.

In his tweet, serial leakster Evan Blass says he can’t vouch for authenticity of the video, but given that rumours of Xiaomi building its own foldable smartphone have been circulating since 2016, we wouldn’t be surprised if this was genuine.

Published

on

A lady (name withheld) has had the shock of her life after discovering that her fiancé is secretly bonking his cousin which amounts to incest.

The heartbroken lady on a relationship platform detailed how it all happened and she found out the two were into a secret amorous sexual relationship unknown to her and their immediate families.

She is scared to confront the man because of the consequence of such an action and how the family can take the matter considering the fact it is a sacrilege.

Read her pathetic story below;

Thursday 8:22 PM

Good evening Joro… more shoes … please keep me anonymous regarding that guy that is in love with his sister… I think my boyfriend is also having sex with his cousin … last week I went to his place and his female cousin met me there (they’re real cousins … I’ve known them since I was around 10) I was about going to the market to get foodstuffs when she came …. I used the toilet and I disposed my panty liner in the waste bin before leaving… that was the only thing I left there when I left the house … on getting back about 1hr 30mins later … I rushed to the toilet to urinate then I met a used condom in the waste bin Joro… I was very sure I left the dustbin with only my panty liner nylon… I washed it myself so I’m very sure a I’ve never been more shocked and confused.

She left immediately I came back.. They’re so close Joro.. they look alike cause their mothers are sisters … so much resemblance…. I don’t even know how to ask him.

He didn’t even bother touching me later that day… someone that was already kissing and smooching before his cousin came… all of a sudden he was tired and wanted to sleep I’m so scared Joro.
