Samsung previewed a user interface for a foldable device that has a flip phone form factor in October, and now images of this device may have allegedly leaked online.
The images were gathered by notable Samsung Leaker, Ice Universe (@UniverseIce), and have been posted on Twitter.
The first image shows the device closed shut and shows a dual-camera array and flash in the bottom-right corner. On the bottom-left corner, there is a small screen that displays that date, time and battery percentage.

Additionally, the second image shows the phone slightly opened and displays the bottom half where you can see an opening that is most probably for a USB-C.
The third image shows the internal display of the phone and you can make out the hinge that looks similar to the same kind used in the Galaxy Fold.
It should be noted that it’s not certain that these images actually depict a Samsung device or one that’s going to be released. It could likely be a concept, prototype or a well-crafted fake. However, Bloomberg did report in March that Samsung would follow up the Galaxy Fold with more foldable devices, including a clamshell phone.
Last month, Motorola announced that it was releasing a vertically folding phone. It looks like the flip phone might just be making a come back in the new year.

MacBook Pro's M1 Max GPU is Over 3x Faster Than M1 in First Metal Benchmark – MacRumors
Multiple benchmarks have already given us a general estimate of the CPU performance of the M1 Max chip, but we’ve had little insight into GPU performance. The M1 Max is equipped with up to 32 graphics cores, marking a vast improvement over the 8-core GPU of the M1, which was Apple’s first chip.
The first Metal benchmark for the M1 Max surfaced this afternoon, with the chip earning a score of 68870. Comparatively, the M1 chip in the 13-inch MacBook Pro has a Metal score of 20581, and the Radeon Pro 5600M, which was the highest-end GPU option for the prior Intel-based 16-inch model, has a Metal score of 42510.
Compared to the fastest chip available in Apple’s previous-generation 16-inch MacBook Pro, the M1 Max is 62 percent faster, and it’s 3x faster than the M1 chip in the 13-inch MacBook Pro, based on the Metal score we have so far.
It’s not clear if this M1 Max chip is the 24-core variant or the 32-core variant. This is also just one result, so we should be able to get a better picture of the graphics performance when additional benchmarks are available.
According to Apple, the 32-core GPU in the M1 Max is up to 4x faster than the M1. Apple has said that the chip delivers performance “comparable to a high-end GPU in a compact pro PC laptop” while consuming up to 40 percent less power.
Since we last shared CPU benchmarks for the M1 Max/Pro chip, several additional results have surfaced. Comparing multiple benchmarks, the M1 Max/Pro earns an average single-core score 1742 and an average multi-core score of 12135.
The chip has the highest single-core score of any Mac to date, and it is only beaten in multi-core performance by the 16, 18, 24, and 28-core Intel Xeon chips used in the higher-end iMac Pro and Mac Pro models.
U.S. safety board says driver, passenger seats occupied during fatal Tesla crash
Local police previously said witness statements indicated there was nobody in the driver’s seat of the Model S when it crashed into a tree. The NTSB said a review of vehicle data show “both the driver and the passenger seats were occupied, and that the seat belts were buckled when the (event data recorder) recorded the crash.”
