According to a report in tech source The Elec says Samsung will reduce output from about 25 million units per month to just 10 million devices during the month of April. The publication also quotes an un-named source to suggest that the ongoing lockdowns due to Covid-19 and the closure of production facilities located in India and Brazil are the cause of this output cut. The company, Samsung report output would be back to the normal outputs during the month of May when the India and Brazil plants will reopen manufacturing. However, given that this lockdown has been extended in India until May 3 and Covid 19 occurences are unfortunately increasing in both these countries, the return to normal may take longer than Samsung hopes. And yet, there is also a silver lining for Samsung. Predicted sales of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra are outperforming all market predictions and sales are expected to hit 6 million devices throughout the year when compared to the projected numbers about 3.5 to 5.25 million devices.

Someone with flu or COVID-19 touches a doorknob or counter. You come along and touch the doorknob or counter. Then you check your phone. Hours later, you’ve washed your hands, but the virus is still alive on your phone. You see the problem.
If you’re a smartphone owner, than the new coronavirus outbreak and brutal flu season require some new habits. Here’s what to do:
Wash your hands before you touch your phone. You know, check your phone less and wash your hands more. This minor lifestyle change entirely bypasses the risk of accidentally transmitting a virus to yourself via your phone.
If that’s never gonna happen . . .
Get a phone case. A washable case that surrounds your phone makes it easy to clean: just toss it in the sink with your dishes once or twice a day, and wash.
Clean your phone. Apple updated its care instructions to say that wiping the hard surfaces of a phone with 70% isopropyl alcohol is fine, as long as no moisture gets into any openings, keys, or charging ports. No need to purchase wipes: The $1 rubbing alcohol that you purchase at the pharmacy is typically 70% isopropyl alcohol. Phone cleaning tips:
use only soft, lint-free cloth. Do not use paper towels, which can scratch.
unplug before you clean
do not spray the phone directly
avoid bleaches or other cleaning products
Phones, by the way, are notorious for being disgusting breeding grounds for germs, even in the best of circumstances. Here’s to hoping phone sanitation becomes a thing.
