LG WING 5G is landing its swiveling screen on AT&T next week

LG has made great phones and some not so great phones. Whether they sell well or not is a different question but it's hard to deny it has created some rather unusual and sometimes innovative designs over the past years. The LG WING definitely takes the cake, at least for now, and sits on both ends of the spectrum. Those who have been enamored by its swiveling screen but scared off by its price tag may now get their chance to get one, presuming they trade it their old phone and pledge loyalty to AT&T.

Galaxy Z Fold 2 features now available on the Galaxy Fold

The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is definitely a much-needed upgrade but that doesn't mean that the Galaxy Fold is any less capable. At least as far as core features are concerned, anything this year's foldable phone is capable of, the 2019 first-gen device can do just as well. Fortunately, Samsung sees it that way and has now rolled out an update to the Galaxy Fold that will let early adopters and believers squeeze out a bit more from their foldable phones. At least until the next year's model truly makes it feel obsolete.

Google lays out plastic-free packaging goal for 2025

Apple's decision to exclude a charger in the iPhone 12 box has unsurprisingly sparked some controversy but it also ignited discussions around sustainability in the mobile world. True to its image as being a trendsetter, there are already speculations that other manufacturers like Samsung will eventually follow suit despite statements to the contrary. Google is conveniently skirting around that question and is instead focusing on its efforts to completely banish plastic from its products by 2025, at least as far as their packaging is concerned.

TCL rollable screen phone shows off another way to expand screens

Foldable phones were mostly created to solve a size problem. People want large, tablet-sized screens but don't want to lose the portability and handiness of a handheld device.

Instead of folding a flexible display, TCL is showing off one that rolls in and out instead, creating what is pretty much the electronic equivalent of paper scrolls.

Swiftkey Android keyboard could soon sync with Windows 10 clipboard

Aside from a brief period with Nokia-branded phones and its now troubled Surface Duo, Microsoft's presence on Android has mostly been on the software side. It has, however, tried to bridge the gap between mobile and desktop, primarily through exclusive features born out of its partnership with Samsung. Samsung isn't the only Android phone maker, though, and Microsoft can't risk alienating everyone else for too long. It might slowly be opening up some of those exclusive features to other Android phones, provided they're using Microsoft apps, of course.

Surface Duo gets a big price cut and early buyers are up in arms

Things seemed to be going well for the Surface Duo despite its somewhat older specs, that was until reviews and reports started coming in that put the dual-screen foldable's price into question.
