Samsung has Galaxy Fold teardown removed

Tech Industry
[MUSIC] Welcome to Alphabet City, the show that covers everything to do with alphabet. Alphabet happens on a lot of companies like, Barely, Chronicle, Wemo and Google. I'm your guide Iyaz Akhtar and you are the fantastic audience. Today, we're talking about drones coming to your home, phones, your comments and more, but first up It's Galaxy Fold time again, on to Galaxy Gateway. [MUSIC] You guys know about the Galaxy Fold. Right now, the device missed its release date of April 26th due to issues with review units, and is on hold. In short, some review units of the Galaxy Fold Had their flexible screen fail. Check out the last episode for more on that. Well the saga of the fold continues. Let's talk about I fix it. It's a company that helps people repair their own devices and also posts tear downs of devices to help others understand how things are put together and taken apart. Well, I fix it published a tear down of the galaxy fold. IFIXIT said the Fold had lots of potential entry points. It also said when closed, the screen is protected, but the spine is flanked by massive gaps that will definitely attract dirt. The company was also curious with the screen protector on the flexible screen. IFIXIT asked, why not extend this layer under the bezels? To hide it from peel happy folks like us. As you are aware, peeling off that layer could kill the display. So here's the thing. The I fix a tear down of the galaxy fold is no longer available at I fix it. A blog post explains that quote. We were provided our Galaxy fold unit by a trusted partner. Samsung has requested, through that partner that iFixit remove it's teardown. We are under no obligation to remove analysis legal or otherwise but out of respect for this partner who we consider an ally in making devices more repairable We are choosing to withdraw our story until we can purchase a Galaxy Fold at retail. Anyone else think this smells fishy? The original tear down notes are still available on Archive.org if you're interested. Who's up for Uptown Updates? [MUSIC] Speaking of flexible phones, images of a foldable Moto Razr popped up on Weibo and then on Slashleaks. It pretty much looks like the Moto patent that was floating around back in January. It's a very tall phone, with a flexible inner display. And maybe an outer front display. Take these images with a grain of salt, though. Motorola has said it is working on a flexible phone that will be out this summer. A render of the Pixel 3A popped up via Evan Blass, it definitely looks Pixel-y. There's even an image of the Iris model, it's a very light purple. Verizon said the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is coming on May 16th. That lines up with earlier leaks. Wing has gotten the go ahead for drone deliveries in the US from the FAA. The FAA gave Wing Air Carrier certification which means the company can begin a commercial service delivering goods from local businesses to homes in the US. The company says testing will occur in Virginia With the goal of a delivery trial later this year. A quick reminder that Wing is owned by Alphabet. Alphabet's Loon is getting a $125 million investment from a company owned by SoftBank. Loon is the company that provides internet. The air balloons that still sound crazy and strange. WAYMO is going to Detroit, the company announced it will repurpose an old American axel and manufacturing facility, there WAYMO will install its hardware and software to make it free to drive on its own. WAYMO says that this is the first 100% dedicated level four autonomous vehicle factory. The Energizer P18K ended its Indiegogo campaign. The P18K is that brick of an Android phone with an 18,000 milliamp hour battery. The company behind the phone was looking to raise $1.2 million, it raised, drum roll please, over 56 million Ugandan Shillings. That's around 15,000 US. On to Comment Cove. This is the part of the show we shine a spotlight at the most amazing audience in the world, you guys. Chris says, the fold for AT&T release date is June 13th. I've seen that report too, I'm being really cautious until Samsung announces a new date, thanks. Matthew says, low cost phone with a great camera, look no further than the xiaomi mi9 and the mi9 SE rsillinnyc says I'm really looking forward to the Pixel 4 XL and a Pixel Watch. Same here. I would love for Google to figure out a proper smart watch. And lastly, what's up Tareq TGM? I read every single comment that comes in so thank you to everyone for writing in. If you've enjoyed your stay in Alphabet City, please like and subscribe. I might as actor I'll see you online. [MUSIC].
