When flexed but not fully open the device "automatically splits into two 4-inch screens so you can easily view images, contents or videos on the top half of the display, and control them on the bottom half", says Samsung.

The worst kept secret in tech has finally been officially announced: Samsung is releasing another folding smartphone.

The Galaxy Z Flip seems to be taking flip smartphones to another level. Once opened you get a 73.6 x 167.3 x 7.2mm - 6.9mm device and it weighs 183g.

The Galaxy Z Flip is also equipped with a fingerprint sensor which is uses to unlock it.

As well as controlling playback from a connected phone, you can also tap on the earbuds themselves: a single tap to play or pause, a double-tap to skip a track or answer a call, and a touch and hold to launch a customized action.

AKG tuned the S10's headphones and the same arrangement follows for the S20 for both the packaged two-way headphones and the phone's own internal speakers.

United States rocket launch cancelled at last minute
An earlier launch of an Antares rocket , with Cygnus resupply spacecraft on-board, from the Wallops Nasa base in Virginia. That mission, which will launch atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket, will lift off at 11:03 p.m.

The star of the show was unsurprisingly the new Galaxy S20 lineup, jam-packed with best-in-class features that reaffirm the Galaxy series' well-earned place as the most impressive Android hardware on the market. Meanwhile, the S20 and S20+ front-facing cameras deliver 10MP resolution, and the S20 Ultra delivers 40MP resolution.

This is a light pink, and as with Cloud Blue it's quite showy and will definitely catch people's eyes, but it's also a less professional, "safe" shade than Cosmic Black or Cosmic Gray.

The Flip will cost $1,380 and hit stores Friday. Outside there is a tiny status display - a 1.1-inch Super AMOLED 300x112 pixel screen.

"The Galaxy S20 is created to enhance nearly everything we love to do with our phones". Since we will know everything about its pricing and availability in just two days, be sure to stay tuned. It shouldn't really come as a surprise, though, given the new flagship offers 5G connectivity, a more advanced camera and a bigger 120Hz display.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus have numerous improvements, including battery life that now stretches to 11 hours of music playback, up from six hours on the original Galaxy Buds.

So, if you want one of the best smartphones the world has ever seen at a huge discount, now is your chance.
