As curved displays are now mainstream on Samsung flagship devices, the next breakthrough would be a smartphone with a foldable display.

With newer smartphones being introduced with “FullView” displays, most manufacturers are still trying to find an ideal place for a fingerprint sensor. Samsung had gone with a rear-mounted unit while Apple has ditched it completely on the iPhone X. Interestingly, Huawei had managed to squeeze one on the bottom chin of its Huawei Mate 10 and honor View10.

Last year they had a showcase using Qualcomm’s Sense ID technology and now they want to convince the world that they are one step closer in introducing one on a phone that you can actually buy.
A new mercenary joins the fray in Google’s war efforts for domination of your house. It’s the Google Assistant with a screen and the search engine giant’s answer to Amazon’s Echo Show.

Y’know, because it’s a display and it’s smart.

Oh boy. Acer threw down the gauntlet in 2016 when they snatched the crown of world’s thinnest laptop right out of HP’s hands.
