WhatsApp might be working on Snapchat-like “self-destructing” messages
WhatsApp is testing a new ‘Delete messages’ feature in their latest beta. The functionality is still under development and we may not see it soon but it works just like Snapchat’s self deleting messages. What’s App will give you the option to choose when the message gets automatically deleted, with options going from an hour to a year.

The design of the new Samsung Galaxy S11 may have been confirmed
We have some case renders of the Samsung Galaxy S11 line-up that were just posted to Slahsleaks. The renders show both the S11 and the S11e. With the single punch hole they will most likely get rid of 3D facial recognition and stick to an on-display fingerprint scanner for all of them. We also see the triple and quad camera set ups on both of these phones as well as the curved display for the S11e.
iPhone 12 series could include OLED panels, but with better displays in two of them
We’ve been hearing that all of the three 2020 iPhone models will feature an OLED display. According to a new ETNews report, they all will but the display on the Pro models will be better. Samsung will still be the sole supplier for the Pro variants, and they will be able to eliminate a touch sensitive layer that isn’t really needed in OLEDs to make the display thinner. The OLEDs for the 6.1in iPhones will provided by both Samsung and LG.
Story of the day:
Samsung may be working on a new foldable tablet
Samsung was just granted some patents of what we’ll call a foldable tablet. It is listed as a ‘mobile phone’ but it is a big, tablet sized phone. It folds in the middle like the Surface Duo but has no outer display, and there is no camera is visible anywhere. Samsung may tuck a camera under the display if they have the tech for it, but so far it’s more of a foldable tablet.
