Samsung Internet Beta Browser gets a UI overhaul

Samsung's own Internet Browser is a popular alternative to Google's Chrome on Android, especially since the company made it available for non-Samsung devices as well. Currently, the Play Store offers the app in two variants - stable and beta but the latter still appears to be a step behind the v.9.0 found on APK Mirror. The latest release brings a bunch of visual changes and appear to be more in line with the upcoming Samsung Experience 10 aesthetics. The first thing you will notice is the simplified navigation bar that now has a new menu button replacing the bookmarks shortcut....

Counterpoint: Apple earned 62% of the global phone profits in Q2

Apple recently hit the trillion dollar valuation (slightly behind schedule) and you may be wondering why. Counterpoint Research has two charts that will quickly explain it – Apple took in 62% of the global profits from phones during the second quarter of this year. That’s $6 billion in profits on $30 billion of revenue. The Q2 profits of chief rival Samsung have been falling for the last three years and it took home 17% of the global profits, less than a third of what Apple made fro its phones. Meanwhile Chinese brands have been growing steadily with Huawei and Xiaomi...

Asus ROG Phone late-October shipping date listed

The Asus ROG Phone was announced way back in early June and nearly four months later you still can’t buy one. That may finally change, if a GearBest listing is to be believed. The site prices the phone at $1,320/€1,140 and claims that the shipping date will be between October 22 and 24. That’s the 8/128GB version, the 8/512GB model will cost $1,620/€1,400. Those prices are higher than the €1,000 asked by Finland’s Telia (that was a pre-order with a free ROG Delta headphones, but it has since disappeared). The carrier claimed that shipments will start in mid-September, but that...

iPhone XS teardown reveals L-shaped battery and more watertight seals

The new iPhones are hitting the shelves tomorrow, but we already get to take a peek inside thanks to FixjeiPhone's teardown. The iPhone XS and XS Max are both subjected to it and we now know more about their internals. Right off the bat, the guy disassembling the device said the screen is now much harder to pop out compared to the previous generation iPhone X due to the additional watertight seals. The new seals ensure that the device can be submerged in 2 meters of fresh water for 30 minutes without any issues - that's what the IP68 rating...

Cat announces the B35 - a rugged 4G feature phone

Cat briefly showcased the B35 rugged featurephone during this year's IFA and now the company is ready to reveal its complete details along with a launch time frame.

Leaked Nokia 7.1 Plus (X7) renders show a notch, dual Zeiss camera

We’ve seen purported screen panels of the Nokia 7.1 Plus (aka Nokia X7) twice now and both times without a notch. However, the first renders of the device show a mid-sized notch – not iPhone wide, but not teardrop either. Which leak is correct? These images claim to be official renders and the other two X-series phones do have notches. Anyway, the screen in the image has a 19:9 aspect ratio (not accounting for the rounded corners) and the likely resolution is 1,080 x 2,280px. The size is unknown as the earlier reports of a 5.9” diagonal are now suspect....
