We’ve been hearing a lot about the Samsung Galaxy S10 lately, but one key detail has been elusive so far – the price. Insider info coming out of the UK makes it sound more than reasonable. In fact, the introductory S10 will be a good £70 cheaper than last year’s Galaxy S9, which launched at £740. However, the fully loaded S10 will cost more twice as much as the base model. Here’s a handy table with the reported prices (not confirmed by Samsung, of course). We’ve also converted them to…

Estimated Samsung Galaxy F bill of materials shows why it will cost $1,800

Korean agency CGS-CIMB Research has posted a report in which it estimates the Bill of Materials (BOM) for the foldable Galaxy F and compares it to a Galaxy S9+ and an iPhone XS Max. The priciest item is the display – or should we say “displays”. The Galaxy F will have one large 7.3” panel that folds down the middle along with an external 4.58” display. There will reportedly be two batteries as well, though that doesn’t add much to the cost (total capacity is expected to be around 5,000-6,000mAh).…

Sony Mobile has been losing money and market share and the parent company has come up with a plan to address the first part – it will cut the division’s expenses in half over the next several years.

Oculus Rift will arrive on Mac if Apple “ever releases a good computer”

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey was asked during an interview when the will they be adding Mac support to the Rift. His answer was simple, when Apple releases a good computer. Other than being the burn of the year so far, it’s also true. Luckey’s reasoning is that the current Macs simply do not have the graphical power to run something as intensive as VR on the Rift. Even the most powerful Mac Pro, with dual AMD FirePro D700 GPU, falls short of a single NVIDIA GTX 970, which is the…

Clearly though, Apple’s taking a leaf from Microsoft’s book here, as that company…
