Although Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked event didn’t show off any new flagship smartphones, we did get a new foldable in the form of the Z Fold 6. Google Gemini AI is integrated into the phone, and can help with scheduling, task and travel planning, plus transcribe meeting notes.

As for hardware, the latest Fold is being treated to a minor update for 2024. The device runs on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, while the chassis (and screen) are now a few millimeters shorter and wider. Other small tweaks include a new brushed metal finish and updated colorways, while the camera and battery remain the same as on the outgoing model.

Like the rest of Samsung’s new lineup, The Z Fold 6 is available for pre-order now, with general release on July 24 — though you’ll have to fork out a hefty $1,899.99!

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
