Samsung launches Galaxy Fold, biometric security flaws, Huawei shelves HarmonyOS – Vertical Hold: Episode 251

Who’s going to drop 3 grand on a Galaxy Fold in Australia? Can we trust biometric security on our phones, and what does Huawei’s not-quite-post-Android future look like? All this and more in the latest episode of Vertical Hold!

Vertical Hold is brought to you by Casa Systems.

We’re joined this week by Alex Choros from Whistleout and Tim Biggs from the SMH/Age to discuss the Samsung Galaxy Fold’s imminent arrival in Australia, why both Samsung and Google appear to have a “whose biometric authentication is more broken” party, and what Huawei’s muddled messaging around its Android phones means for the future of the brand.

Also, Adam’s mortality is called into question.
