Official! WhatsApp Users Can No Longer Take Screenshots of Profile Photos

In February 2024, WhatsApp tested a new privacy feature in the beta version to help protect user profile photos from criminal acts.

Now this feature has been officially rolled out to the regular version of WhatsApp, namely the ability to prevent users from taking screenshots or screenshots of profile photos.

This will provide better security for users and greater control over who can access their content.

In beta testing, attempts to take a screenshot would give a black screen along with the words ‘unable to take screenshot due to app restrictions.

Now on the stable version of WhatsApp, users who want to make this effort will get the same message.

When TechViral tries to take a screenshot of the profile photo, WhatsApp does not display a black screen but still gives a pop-up saying ‘This application does not allow screenshots’

We also noted that while we couldn’t screenshot individual profile pictures, when we tried to take a profile picture in a group chat, WhatsApp still allowed it to be taken. However, to take profile photos of each member of the WhatsApp group, permission is not given.

While this feature was launched, there is no further detailed information such as whether this feature is optional or not so there is no way to disable it if users still allow other people to take screenshots of their profile picture.

This is not the first feature to help protect user privacy on WhatsApp, previously there were options such as changing profile photo privacy settings, one-view media, and status privacy settings.

However, this is a step forward in helping provide users with a more secure messaging app, and it’s likely that more users will start seeing this feature on their devices in the coming weeks.

Foldable smartphones are predicted to become increasingly popular in 2024

Folding cellphones are now increasingly popular with the wider public. It is predicted that in 2024, the trend of foldable smartphones will continue to increase.

From a report made by TechViral, as seen on Sunday (25/2/2024), in 2023, global foldable phone shipments will reach 15.9 million units, marking an increase of 25% YoY (years on years) and covering around 1.4% of the entire smartphone market.

In 2024 deliveries are expected to increase to around 17.7 million units, growing by 11% and increasing market share slightly to 1.5%. But this growth rate is still below market expectations with the segment expected to only exceed 2% by 2025.

There are two factors that could cause the slowdown in the growth of this folding cellphone. Firstly, due to the low durability of folding cellphones, this is what causes a lack of user trust in the product. Then, the second factor is the price which is still not in line with the majority of consumers’ pockets.

Techviral said the future of the foldable cellphone market is influenced by the pace of cost optimization. Key components such as UTGs and hinges can be mass produced after being standardized, thereby reducing costs significantly.

Additionally, increased shipments of folding panels by Chinese panel manufacturers offer price advantages over Korean suppliers. It is expected to further reduce the price of foldable phones, this will allow brands to lower selling prices and choose to accelerate the rate of market penetration.

Samsung Leads the Market, Huawei is a Serious Competitor

Samsung is still the market leader even though their market share dropped from 80% in 2022 to under 70% the following year, while Huawei’s shipments increased to 12%. Brands such as Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo are still below 10%.

Looking ahead to 2024, Samsung is determined to maintain its foldable cellphone market share at around 60%, similar to their target in 2023. In contrast to Huawei, which is aggressively increasing its foldable cellphone shipments with a target of market share exceeding 20%.

Specifically, Oppo and Vivo have indicated that they are postponing plans to launch a smaller, vertically foldable device this year. Both chose to channel their efforts into larger, horizontally foldable models due to concerns that too high costs would impact their bottom line.

On the other hand, Huawei is on track to launch a small vertical foldable device that has 5G capabilities, this will be their debut in the compact foldable device sector and will enter the competition this year.

Although many smartphone brands have jumped into the foldable phone arena, one brand that is absent is Apple. They have not officially announced their plans for a foldable phone, although there are reports that Apple is assessing key components for a foldable device, including requesting samples and testing for panels and hinges.

TrendForce assesses that this information is still not certain that Apple will start developing their foldable cellphone products. Despite this, Apple’s potential entry into the foldable cellphone market could stimulate significant market growth.

Comparison of Oppo Find N3 Flip and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5

Even though it has been around for a long time, not many cellphone manufacturers are working on folding screen cellphones. For example, in folding screen phones with clamshell models currently, there are only two big names playing, namely Oppo and Samsung.

From Oppo, the newest variant is the Find N3 Flip, while from Samsung the newest is the Galaxy Z Flip 5. What is the comparison between these two folding screen phones? Come on, take a look at the following review.

Design

In terms of dimensions, at first glance, these two phones look similar. However, if you look in more detail, the Z Flip 5 is indeed smaller and lighter than the N3 Flip, there isn’t much of a difference. The thickness of the Z Flip 5 when closed is 15.1mm and 6.9 mm when open.

Meanwhile, the N3 Flip is 7.8 mm thick when opened and 16.5 mm when closed. The weight is 9 grams apart, namely the Z Flip 5 is lighter at 187 grams.

Then the outer screen. Oppo and Samsung carry different styles in this section. Oppo uses a screen with a conventional shape, with a 3.26 inch AMOLED panel. Meanwhile, Samsung “finished” the outside with a 3.4 inch screen, except for the area for the camera module.

The N3 Flip’s smaller screen makes it more comfortable to operate with one hand. Then the interface feels more interactive and supports more applications that can be operated directly from the outside. Even though Samsung does provide the Good Lock application to bring more applications to the external screen, the setup process is quite complicated.

Hinge

Well, this hinge can be said to be one of the most important components of a folding cellphone. And, Oppo claims that the Flexion Hinge on the N3 Flip is made of stainless steel material, and is promised to be strong when opened and closed up to one million times. Meanwhile, Samsung only promises that the Z Flip 5’s hinge will last 200 thousand times opening and closing.

Flexion Hinge N3 Flip also creates screen crease marks that are less visible than on the Z Flip 5. The crease marks are of course still visible, but they are clearly more minimal. Oh yes, both the N3 Flip and Z Flip 5 screens can be closed tightly without any gaps.

Screen

The N3 Flip uses a 6.8 inch LTPO AMOLED panel, slightly larger than the Z Flip 5 which uses a 6.7 inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X. Both have FHD+, 120Hz and HDR10+ resolution. However, on paper, this Samsung screen has a higher brightness level, namely 1,750 nits compared to 1,600 nits on the Oppo.

System on a chip and battery

The system on a chip (SoC), or commonly referred to as the processor, used by these two cellphones comes from different manufacturers. Samsung chose Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 from Qualcomm, while Oppo chose Dimensity 9200 from MediaTek.

Both use 4nm architecture, LPDDR5X RAM, and UFS 4.0 storage. The N3 Flip RAM has a capacity of 12GB, while the Z Flip 5 only has 8GB. How’s the performance? From Tech Viral testing, the AnTuTu Find N3 Flip score reached one million. So, even though it is a folding screen cellphone, its performance is still fast and you can even play heavy games like Genshin Impact smoothly. And of course, you can get through daily use without slowing down, with satisfactory battery life.

In the battery sector, the N3 Flip is quite superior because it has a larger capacity battery and greater charging support. Namely 3,700 mAh versus 4,300 mAh, and 25W charger versus 44W. However, the Z Flip 5 supports wireless charging up to 15W and reverse wireless charging 4.5W. Another advantage of Oppo is that it includes a charging adapter that is much larger than the 65Watt power the device receives.

Camera

In this section, it must be admitted that Oppo has quite a big advantage. The three cameras on the N3 Flip were designed by Hasselblad, and consist of a main camera with a 50MP Sony IMX890 sensor with OIS, a 48MP ultrawide camera with a 114 degree field of view, and a 32MP portrait camera with 2x optical zoom. Then the selfie camera is 32MP.

Meanwhile, the Z Flip 5 still has a camera system similar to the previous Z Flip series. Namely a pair of 12MP cameras on the back for the main camera (with OIS) and ultrawide, as well as a 10MP selfie camera.

With relatively the same price, namely IDR 15,999,000 (12GB/256 variant on the Find N3 Flip and 8GB/256GB on the Galaxy Z Flip 5), these two cellphones have their own advantages and disadvantages. However, we think the Find N3 Flip provides a more enjoyable user experience.

Yes, in terms of the SoC used, the Z Flip 5 benchmark results are slightly superior, but that doesn’t mean the Find N3 Flip is a slower cellphone. The reason is, in the tests we carried out, Genshin Impact with high settings and a frame rate of 60 could be run smoothly by the Find N3 Flip. Oh yes, the battery is bigger and charging is also faster.

This Unique Casing Brings the iPhone a BlackBerry Flavor

The days when the BlackBerry was the dream smartphone are long gone, but perhaps some still miss it. Well, a new case for the iPhone brings one of BlackBerry’s most beloved features, namely a physical keyboard.

It’s called Clicks, created by a company founded by two famous content creators, namely Michael Fisher (MrMobile) and Kevin Michaluk (CrackBerry Kevin). Clicks is basically a physical keyboard for the iPhone.

Clicks can be ordered for USD 139 for the standard iPhone and USD 159 for the larger iPhone. This Clicks keyboard has a bold design. The flagship color, BumbleBee, is bright yellow which contrasts nicely with the black keyboard. The casing is made of silicone to make it easier to insert the iPhone and also easy to hold.

Clicks doesn’t require Bluetooth or batteries to operate, relying solely on iPhone power. Indeed, this iPhone casing makes the device very tall like a remote. The good news, quoted by Tech Viral from CNN, Friday (12/1/2024), is that the button is easy to click and is large enough to be easy to press.

The keyboard position is a bit odd. Users have to slide their hands down slightly to put it on. However, it is likely that users will eventually get used to it.

By using a physical keyboard, users will get more screen space. That’s because when it’s plugged in, iOS knows not to show the virtual keyboard when tapping the typeable area.

Presumably, this case is suitable for those who are big fans of physical keyboards and want one on their iPhone. If you miss the days of texting with a BlackBerry keyboard or aren’t a fan of virtual keyboards, this case might be for you.

Don’t Forget To Register In The Below

To get this benefit, you simply open the samsung.com/id site, click the ‘Register Now’ button then complete the form completely, starting from brief personal data to the available survey questions.
