Samsung seems to have just given up on keeping its new folding phones secret at this point

With less than 48 hours to go until Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event, you'd be forgiven for thinking we're all out of potential leaks flaunting the company's upcoming folding phones. Of course, you'd also be wrong. Following up on its own internal video tease a few weeks ago, Samsung accidentally published an ad on YouTube showing off both the Galaxy Z Flip3 and Z Fold3, in case you need further evidence of what's on the way later this week.

YouTube timed comments beta now appearing on more videos

YouTube timed comments beta now appearing on more videos

The other day I watched a YouTube video of a man throwing a grenade into an ATM, "for science." It's the kind of mindless fluff that's perfect for YouTube, but it did have quite a lot of buildup when all I wanted to see was a grey box go boom. A new feature might help you find the good part of any video, if you can stomach reading the comments section.

OnePlus 9 Pro could up its camera game with Hasselblad collab

The OnePlus 8 Pro delivered some significant camera improvements but it still failed to impress us on several fronts. Vivo’s recent collaboration with Zeiss to co-develop imaging systems gave us reason to believe a similar deal could be in the offing for its sister brand, but it seems OnePlus has plans of its own.

Privacy-focused web browser Vivaldi debuted on Android only a few months ago with encrypted sync and native protection against trackers. In the following months, it got better at forcing dark mode on all websites, which worked well for the most part. The browser maker is now pushing a new update to its Android app that brings the option to clear your browsing data upon exiting the app, plus the ability to prevent WebRTC IP leaks, much like its desktop counterpart, in addition to a couple of other feature enhancements.

Google's Area 120 releases its latest experiment: A sort of TikTok for shopping called Shoploop

Google's experimental Area 120 division has just released a new product, and this time it isn't just another Pinterest clone. Shoploop, as its name might imply, is a video shopping platform that shows short not-quite reviews for products from creators and brands in short (90 seconds or less) videos. Think of it as an Instagram or TikTok feed of product videos. Right now, it's focusing on stuff like makeup and skincare, but Shoploop plans to expand to more product types in the future, including clothing, jewelry, and electronics.

Text messaging is a lot more complicated than it used to be, especially when iPhones and Android devices are mixed together. Due to a few different factors, media attachments (like photos and videos) can end up degraded in quality when sent over text messages, depending on who the recipient is and what kind of phone they have.
