Unpacked came early

Published

Secret no more! The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip — Samsung’s new foldable phone — was just revealed to the audience at the Oscars.

With all the rumors and leaks that have been coming out for the past few months, it’s no secret that Samsung is indeed coming up with a new foldable for 2020. This new information, though, confirms that Samsung has decided to take the clam-shell route just like the Motorola razr.

The video was taken by The Verge’s Nilay Patel. Watch it below.

Under the hood, the Galaxy Z Flip will carry the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and a 3300mAh battery. At the very least, the smartphone will be on par with last year’s flagship’s standards.

OnePlus 8T pricing and availability in the Philippines

The latest from OnePlus is here!

OnePlus 8T

Well, that was fast. Digital Walker — the official distributor of OnePlus in the Philippines — is finally selling the recently launched OnePlus 8T in the country.

The official price of the OnePlus 8T in the country is PhP 29,990. Digital Walker is actually doing its buyers a favor since that price is only US$ 617 when converted. In the US, it is much expensive at US$ 749. However, the US variant comes with a 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

Digital Walker is only selling an 8GB + 128GB variant in the country for the meantime though. It is unclear if a higher-end variant will come in the future. Also, it is important to note that only the Luna Silver color option is available in the meantime.

Buyers must head over to Digital Walker’s official online store — HomeOffice — to purchase one. Alternatively, they can click to this link to take them straight to the product page. Due to the supply restrictions, OnePlus 8T is limited in stock, and delivery in the Philippines may occur later in November.

Apple’s MagSafe charger works on Samsung and Google phones

Specifically the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Pixel 5

Published

on

This month, Apple announced the return of the wireless MagSafe system. This time around, the wireless charging solution powers the iPhone 12 series with a convenient snap-to-place method. Of course, as with most of Apple’s products, you don’t really expect it to work with non-Apple device. Fortunately, the historical rule of thumb is wrong. Apparently, Apple’s MagSafe charger works on Samsung and Google phones.

As tested by Max Weinbach, the wireless charger can snap and work on the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Further, YouTuber Aaron Zollo tested the charger on the recently announced Google Pixel 5. Unfortunately, neither test revealed how well the charger does with the devices. However, Weinbach commented that it took some effort to dislodge the charger from the Galaxy Z Fold 2.

Of course, it’s no surprise that the MagSafe charger will work on other Qi-based devices. However, it’s a surprise that Apple’s proprietary accessories are working on non-Apple devices.

Still, if you need an extra wireless charger, at least Apple’s charger can work on your device. That is, if you own both an Apple and Android device.

Now, the only remaining question is whether or not Apple’s other MagSafe accessories will work on non-Apple devices. The other accessories — like an attachable wallet — will come out later this year.
