Galaxy X foldable phone gets listed in Samsung support

Where there’s smoke there may be fire, too. Samsung’s alleged foldable phone (no, not that one), dubbed tentatively Galaxy X, already got certification from the Bluetooth SIG, and from South Korea’s National Radio Agency, but it is now getting much closer to reality, as Samsung itself included the unorthodox SM-G888N0 model in the support section of its Korean website. Does that mean that we are to expect the announcement and pilot launch of the Galaxy X first on its home soil?

Does your phone support T-Mobile's Extended Range and VoLTE? This app will tell you if it does

Back in August, T-Mobile celebrated winning 45% of the 600MHz low frequency airwaves that the FCC put up for auction. The carrier spent nearly $8 billion to win all that spectrum.

T-Mobile, the leader in the industry when it comes to marketing, reveals that its Extended Range airwaves travel twice as far and penetrate buildings four times better than other frequencies.

If you’re a T-Mobile customer, your handset must be compatible with these bands …

Apple posts support page for iPhone X that advises how to reduce chances of burn-in on the screen

Apple has posted a support page about the Super Retina Display employed on the just launched Apple iPhone X. Among the topics is the OLED panel used on the phone. The iPhone X is the first iPhone ever to ditch LCD for OLED, and Apple felt it was appropriate to inform those who purchased the device what to expect from the screen. For example, Apple notes that if you look at an OLED display off-angle, you might notice shifts in color and hue. As Apple points out, “this is a characteristic of OLED and is normal behavior.”

Apple also cautions iPhone X users that over the long term, the OLED …
