CSS Properties and Values CSS variables are getting more power with CSS Properties and Values API Level 1. With it, you can register your variables as full custom properties, ensuring they're always a specific type, and letting you set a default value, or even, animate them.

Take the image below, for example.



What you're seeing is a transition created with a CSS custom property. In addition to being impossible without the new API, this transition is also type safe. For details and access to the code used to generate this image, see Smarter custom properties with Houdini's new API.

Image

Samsung takes a dig at Huawei Mate 30 series for lacking Google services

Image
Huawei has emerged as a major threat to Samsung's smartphone dominance in the last couple of years. The Chinese company's recent flagships have done exceedingly well in the market to be a cause of concern for Samsung. Right when Huawei was trying to make a mark in the Western markets, it has been hit with a debilitating US trade ban that bars American companies from doing any kind of business with the Chinese tech giant.The biggest setback to Huawei from these restrictions is that Google cannot license its apps and services to Huawei, making the latter's Android devices practically useless in markets outside China. Because of this, the company's latest Mate 30 series lacks access to Google's ubiquitous Android apps and services.This is an unexpected opportunity for Samsung and, naturally, the company is taking advantage of it. When Huawei was unveiling the Mate 30 lineup in Munich yesterday, Samsung sent promotional emails in Spanish to its customers in Latin Ameri…

Samsung highlights how to care for your Galaxy Fold in new video

Image
With the launch of the "redesigned" Galaxy Fold comes a new YouTube video from Samsung. Unlike the company's most other promotional videos that generally go live after a new product launch, the latest one focuses mainly on highlighting how customers should care for their newly-acquired Galaxy Folds.Samsung's first foldable device earned a bit of a bad reputation early on, and readers must know the entire backstory by now. The first sample units had a protective film covering the foldable panel, which gave most early reviewers the wrong impression that it can be removed. And removed it was, by a lot of reviewers who found out the hard way that the protective layer was, in fact, a vital component of the screen. In other cases, the fairly large gaps between the foldable screen's edges and hinge mechanism allowed foreign objects to infiltrate the device and wreak havoc to the foldable panel from the inside.Samsung not only changed key aspects of the device before its…

PSA: You need to enable the Galaxy Watch Active 2 touch bezel manually

Image
The Galaxy Watch Active 2 was first released in South Korea. It's gradually making its way to more markets across the globe. Samsung will release the new smartwatch in the United States towards the end of this month.The touch bezel is one of the top features of this new smartwatch. It will likely be the first thing you try out when you unbox the Galaxy Watch Active 2. However, don't think your smartwatch is broken if the bezel isn't responding to your touch. That's because you will need to enable the Galaxy Watch Active 2 touch bezel manually.Enable Galaxy Watch Active 2 touch bezelThis seems counterproductive but for some reason, Samsung has decided to keep the Galaxy Watch Active 2's touch bezel disabled by default. You'll actually need to go into the Galaxy Wearable app to enable it yourself.Fortunately, it's a rather simple process. Once you have the Galaxy Watch Active 2 paired with your device, launch the Galaxy Wearable app and access the menu for yo…

Galaxy A70s set to launch this month with a 64-megapixel rear camera

Image
Samsung has been refreshing many of its budget and mid-range devices by launching upgraded 's' variants in recent months. The Galaxy A20, A30, A50, M30, and a few other devices have already undergone this treatment. It appears the Galaxy A70 is next in line as, according to an IANS report, the Korean company is supposedly planning to launch the Galaxy A70s in India later this month.The A70s will reportedly feature a 64-megapixel rear camera, making it the first Galaxy device to breach the 48-megapixel mark. Though the report doesn't mention the exact sensor, it could be the ISOCELL Bright GW1 image sensor the Samsung unveiled in May this year. The GW1 sensor was initially rumored to make its debut on a Galaxy device, but the bragging rights eventually went to Realme and Redmi devices instead.The Galaxy A70s will come in two variants and sport the same design language as the A30s and the A50s, the report says. Pricing is pegged around Rs. 30,000, which seems plausible given…

Samsung announces Samsung Developer Conference 2019 agenda

Image
It's almost time for Samsung's annual Developer Conference, and the Korean giant has now announced the agenda it has planned for this year's event. SDC 2019 will kick off at the San Jose Convention Center in California on October 29 and go on for two days, and as revealed by Samsung, the company will be focusing on things like Bixby, Smart TVs, One UI, 5G, and cryptocurrency. As expected, DJ Koh will open the event with a general look at Samsung's plans for the future, followed by hands-on sessions for developers and several keynotes.Oddly enough, Samsung doesn't mention the Galaxy Fold, but the company is no doubt going to have a session or two to show developers how they can develop and optimize their apps for the company's foldable phone now that it's actually going to be in the hands of consumers. Samsung will also be talking about One UI and "how it's designed to provide easy-to-use, intuitive experiences for the users across the Galaxy ecosys…

Here’s how you can hide Galaxy Note 10’s persistent charging notification

Image
The Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ come with the fastest charging speeds of any Galaxy smartphone yet. And it seems Samsung wants users of these devices to always know just how fast they charge, as every time the Note 10 or Note 10+ are charging, there's a persistent message on the screen telling you how much time is left before the battery will reach 100 percent charge. There's no way to turn that message/notification off, and it looks like many Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ owners have taken issue with that fact.Well, the good news is that there is a workaround that lets you get rid of the charging information on the display: You can simply use Android's screensaver option and make the phone display an all black image when it's being charged. The bad news is that Android's screensaver feature, like Windows screensavers, keeps the display on instead of letting it sleep. The screen will technically remain on all the time that it displays your chosen image. You al…

These are the improvements I’d like to see on the next S Pen

Image
I've been using the Galaxy Note 10 for more than a couple of weeks now, and I must say, there's very little I don't like about the phone. It feels great, thanks to its premium build quality; it's very fast, the display is gorgeous, and One UI 1.5 is close to perfect. But as much as I've fallen in love with the Galaxy Note 10, I think Samsung is capable of doing a better job in some areas. Coincidentally, one of these areas is, I think, the S Pen experience. It's quite complete out of the box but, as they say, there is always room for improvement.A recent rumor suggests the company might launch the next S Pen along with the Galaxy S11 series, all the while replacing the Note lineup with the Galaxy Fold in the second half of 2020. Time will tell if this will come to pass. Either way, we don't expect Samsung to abandon the S Pen. There will most likely be a new edition next year. With that in mind, there are a few aspects regarding the iconic tool that I'd…
