driven breakthroughs. Although among the two, the Huawei

Mate X is more practical than Galaxy Fold because the latter is folded inward to lower the risk of br

eaking apart while falling down, which is not so useful when breaking-glass insurance is popular.

More importantly, the “new” foldable smartphones are hardly of any pr

actical use. Of course, one can easily double the display of the foldable smartphone by un

folding it so it has the size of an iPad, but that’s all. In plain words, the foldable display enables users to combine a tablet an

d a smartphone into one. There might be more uses in the future, but at least not for now.

When touchable displays for smartphones was invented, they did not get popularized until certain apps that suit

ed touchable displays only, such as Fruit Ninjia, gained popularity. Now foldable smartphones faces a similar pr

oblem. Only when apps that suit the foldable smartphones are developed will the phones be truly accepted by the market.

Samsung Fold and Huawei Mate X are both foldable smartphones, but they differ greatly in terms of des

ign. The former is folded inward while the latter is folded outward, and each has its advantages and disadvantages.

Despite China’s reiteration about it being committed to pea

ceful exploration of space and its openness to cooperation with any country in its development of space technology, the US will not give up its desire to hav

e dominance in this domain, and it is devoting a great deal of effort to presenting China and Russia as threats to serve this purpose.

Its huge investment in the development of a “Space Force” will, as a result, inevitably give rise

to an arms race off the Earth, which will shatter the human dream of the peaceful exploration of space.Be

ijing’s environmental watchdog is considering adopting the National VI (B) emission standards ahead of the cou

Sales of these vehicles would be banned after the respective deadlines, but owners could

still register vehicles that meet the current standard one month after these deadlines, according to the draft.
