Counterpoint: iPhone X reaches 60m shipments

The Apple iPhone X has been on sale for ten months now and in that time it has surpassed 60 million commutative shipments. In contrast, it took the iPhone 6 just six months to amass 60 million shipments and in ten months, it had already shipped 90 million units.

Interestingly, according to Counterpoint's data, the iPhone X accounted for more revenue alone, than each of Huawei, Oppo,...

In 2009, the Japanese space probe Kaguya landed on the moon and detected uranium, thorium, potassium, magnesium, silicon, calcium, titanium and iron in samples. That discovery opened up the possibility of commercial mining operations. The...

State-backed hackers are still trying to break into the personal email accounts of U.S. senators and their aides — and a lawmaker focused on cybersecurity says the Senate's security office should stop refusing to help defend them. Sen.

On Thursday, Google spokesman Aaron Stein confirmed that his company had notified the Senate targets. Neither Stein nor...

Huawei Mate 20 Pro's third teaser hints at the underwater mode

Just two days ago, an APK teardown of the upcoming EMUI 9 software based on Android 9.0 Pie revealed some neat Mate 20 Pro features. One that stood out was the underwater feature that lets you shoot clearer photos when you submerge the device. That's, of course, with the help of an additional plastic bag. That's a pretty cool idea and the feature is further confirmed by the latest teaser posted on Weibo, which was uploaded by someone on YouTube too. Then again, it might just be about the water-resistance of the phone but it's not a new feature since...
