CNET UK podcast 485: Samsung flexi-phone rumours, flying cars and Brexit website woes

Luke Westaway and Andrew Hoyle mull the potential advantages of a phone that folds in half. Plus much more news and chat on the UK's best tech podcast.


Like this, but even curvier-er.

Andrew Hoyle/CNET

Phones are boring these days, right? Well, perhaps not for long -- Samsung's rumoured to be cooking up two flexible-screened phones to show as as soon as early next year.

We mull the potential of the flexi-phone on this week's podcast, but there's much more besides! In Brexit news, UK would-be voters were irate to find the government's website crashing just hours ahead of the registration deadline, and a safari organisation is trying to curtail the use of animal-sighting apps that could be putting animals at risk.

Meanwhile Spotify says it has no plans to get snapped up by a bigger company, and Google's Larry Page is said to be funding flying cars. Oh, and Andy explains why HTC launching a business-centric edition of the Vive is not, in fact, boring.

As if that's not enough, Andy's got his mitts on a ludicrously expensive smartphone, the Solarin phone from Sirin labs. Got $16,000 burning a hole in your pocket? This could be the phone for you. Hit play on the video below to check it out.
