Patent drawings of a Samsung foldable phone design published

Samsung has a tendency to throw stuff at the wall, and see what sticks. I don't mean that in a negative way - many of their seemingly-bizarre experiments became wildly popular (see: S7 edge). A patent application submitted by Samsung shows their concept of a foldable smartphone, and it's interesting to say the least.

LeEco's $100 off flash sale on the Le S3 and Le Pro3 returns today at 1 PM Eastern/10 AM Pacific

If you missed the $100 discount on LeEco's two debut phones for the American market, you have another chance to snag one today. The company is selling its higher-powered phone, the Le Pro3, for just $299, while the more down-market Le S3 will be just $149. Apparently the manufacturer didn't see the stampede of sales that it wanted last week, so it's making that generous offer again. The deep discounts on LeEco's televisions remain, minus the dramatic 85" model. The sale will start at 10 AM Pacific and end tonight, or sooner if supplies run out.

OnePlus Community app now available on the Play Store for all

OnePlus users love the company's forums and community where they can find news about the latest builds, catch offers, talk to each other about their devices, and stay in touch with the people behind OnePlus to voice their requests, concerns, and more.

The OnePlus Community app has been available for a bit, but it was only a built-in app added in the Oxygen OS builds. Separate APKs were floating around on XDA and even APK Mirror, but there was no way to officially grab the app from the Play Store... yet.

Now the OnePlus Community app is available for everyone on the Store, should you have a OnePlus device or not.

Next batch of Android Pay banks go live, Capital One included

The list of banks that support Android Pay continues to grow, with 31 US banks added this time around. As we already knew just under a week ago, Capital One now supports Android Pay, although as Ryan says in that post, the support is a little wonky with caveats and a weird verification process.

Like most US banks added in previous rounds, the other banks added appear to be small, community-based banks and some such. While they're not huge, it's good to see even more banks joining the list and supporting a fast-growing payment option for many in the US, and around the world as well.

Android Nougat feature spotlight: Improved bug report capture process

Capturing and sending a bug report on Android used to be an inelegant process. Bugs are annoying and bug reports are one of the least exciting parts of a platform, but they are essential to help it and its apps move forward. So it's nice to see the Android team putting some thoughts behind improving the bug report interface and interaction, especially for those of us who tend to actually use the feature.

Previously, on Android 6.0 and below, if you decided to save and send a bug report, the device would vibrate once and nothing happened for a minute or two. Then you get the notification for the captured bug report and the only thing you can do is share it along with the screenshot that was taken when you tapped the bug report icon.
