This Concept Samsung Galaxy Note Rollable Smartphone Looks Stunning

Samsung is allegedly working on a rollable smartphone, and that inspired this new Samsung Galaxy Note concept. This concept smartphone has been created and presented by the Concept Creator YouTube channel. It is worth noting that it was created in collaboration with Letsgodigital.

Having said that, the company’s exec was spotted carrying an unknown device, whose design suggested it may be a rollable smartphone. That’s probably what inspired the design of this concept smartphone.

Do note that this is not a leak or anything of the sort. Having said that, the design has been presented in both images and a video clip. Both of those are included below the article.

Fly over Jupiter in this stunning video from NASA’s Juno spacecraft

What if you could hitch a ride on NASA’s Juno spacecraft at Jupiter? We may be stuck on Earth, but the space agency has given us the next best option: a new video flyover of Jupiter based on photos from Juno’s recent flyby in June. 

The stunning video, which is made up of 41 images captured on June 2, gives us a glimpse of what we’d see if we were able to fly around Jupiter ourselves, combining pictures taken from different angles as the spacecraft sped by the solar system’s largest planet. 

Throughout the video, we see zoomed-in views of Jupiter’s upper atmosphere at Juno’s closest approach, when the spacecraft was about 2,100 miles (3,400 kilometers) above the planet’s cloud tops, as well as zoomed-out views. At the spacecraft’s closest point to Jupiter, the gas giant’s powerful gravity sped the spacecraft up to an impressive 130,000 mph (209,000 kph)
