Google Pushes Back Android 11 Beta Launch Show Once Again

Google's Android 11 roadmap has been hitting all sorts of snags lately. The original Google I/O May 12 to May 14 event was canceled entirely, due to COVID-19.

Samsung Galaxy M01 And M11 Launching In India On June 2

A few days ago, we heard quite a bit of chatter about the Galaxy M01 and M11 coming to India as early as the start of June. Now we have an even more specific date and time for the launch - June 2 at 12PM. The specific time is a bit unexpected, since it seems unlikely for Samsung to hold and actual event for the budget pair. Still, we could be treated to some formal unveiling, even if it is a scheduled promo video. Alternatively, you can expect to see listings go up online. We'll likely be keeping a closer eye on the Galaxy M01 ourselves, since, unlike the M11, its specs sheet is...

Samsung Galaxy Note20s Battery Could Be 4300 Mah After All

Samsung's Galaxy Note20+ will apparently have a 4,500 mAh battery, but what about the (slightly) smaller Note20? Back in April, word on the streets was 4,000 mAh. Now though, it looks like Samsung has managed to cram a bit more juice into the Note20's cell. After digging through the Chinese 3C's certification database, the enterprising folks at SamMobile have figured out that the model number for the battery that's going to be used in the Chinese version of the Note20 is EB-BN980ABY. Oh, and its capacity is 4,300 mAh. That's marginally better than what was thought before, and in...

Samsung Galaxy A71s 5g Uw Is Headed Toverizon

Verizon is getting ready to add another mid-range Samsung smartphone to its 5G roster, complete with support for its ultrafast mmWave network of course. This will be a reinterpreted Galaxy A71, except, unlike the already announced A71 5G, Big Red's model will be powered by a different chipset and have a different name.

Lg Ramping Up Production For Ipad Lcd Panels

Industry insiders report that Apple has asked LG to ramp up production significantly of LCD panels for iPads. Reportedly, the surge in demand for big-screen devices during the pandemic in Asia has asked for an uptick in manufacturing.
