Realme Fold or Flip is coming

The global market for foldables is growing like never before this year. And it seems that Realme is finally ready to join in with its own foldable smartphones. Madhav Sheth, Vice President of Realme and President of Realme International, seems to have a similar view. On Twitter today, he asked his followers if they would rather have a Realme Flip or a Realme Fold.

Rumors about Realme foldables have been around for years. So far, however, the brand has focused on developing regular bar phones to reach a larger group of buyers. Now that Realme has officially confirmed its ambitions, you can look forward to the first teasers in the coming weeks.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 external display size leaked

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 (review) presented last August came onto the market with a 6.2-inch external display. According to the reliable tipster Ice Universe, nothing will change with the successor Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5. The Galaxy Z Fold5 should also continue to rely on an external 6.2-inch display. The tipster didn’t mention the resolution of the panel, though, so it remains to be seen if it’s the same as the Fold4.

Ice Universe also claims to already know most of the specifications of the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5. The design process of the two Samsung smartphones has been completed and will no longer be changed. Thanks to a report from last month, the storage options of the Galaxy Z Fold5 are already known. They’re said to be identical to those found in the Galaxy Z Fold4 – 256GB, 512GB and 1TB.

Also, rumors are circulating that the Galaxy Z Fold5 will be launched with a new hinge design. This is to hide the crease in the middle of the display. Supposedly the final tests for this new design are already underway.


All Google One plans now include free VPN

Google’s VPN service was previously only available to subscribers of one of the more expensive Google One plans. This is about to change: in the future, all Google One plans will also include the VPN. However, the rollout is still ongoing and it may take a few more weeks to complete.

The service works for Google One subscribers in Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the UK and the US. You can use the VPN on Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac devices and share it with up to five other users.

There’s also a new dark web report for US-based Google One users. It allows you to search the dark web for instances of your personal information that may have been exposed through security flaws. Online identity theft is a growing problem, affecting “millions of people” every year, according to Google.

The new service reports when it finds personal data on the dark web. However, you must first specify the data to be monitored and activate the monitoring. If Google One finds stolen data, you get instructions on how to protect it. For example, with social security numbers, Google suggests reporting them to the government as stolen. The Dark Web Report will be rolling out “over the next few weeks” to subscribers on all Google One plans in the US.
