Even more images of Sony's upcoming ANC true wireless earbuds have leaked

Even more images of Sony's upcoming ANC true wireless earbuds have leaked

Sony's personal audio products have set a very high bar in recent years, with the over-ear WH-1000XM4 being rightly labeled as the best around (read our review to see why we love them so much). When they came out in 2019, the true wireless WF-1000XM3 were also fantastic, but the true wireless earbud space is far more competitive so it's about time Sony updated them.

One of the big problems with folding phones may finally have a fix

One of the big problems with folding phones may finally have a fix

Since their inception, durability has been a pressing issue for foldable devices, as evidenced by the launch problems that plagued the original Galaxy Fold. The Z Flip and Z Fold2 represented a significant leap in build quality, refining the design and greatly improving the hinge mechanism. But even with those changes, there was still the conspicuous absence of any IP rating; it's much harder to waterproof something with moving parts, after all. Thankfully, Samsung may have found a way to bring some level of ingress protection to the upcoming Z Flip2 and Z Fold3.
