Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S20 with mmWave 5G support launches June 4th

Earlier this year, Samsung launched the Galaxy S20 series, and all three models supported 5G in some capacity. The Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra supported both sub-6GHz spectra as well as mmWave frequencies (Verizon's Ultra Wideband). The smallest Galaxy S20 5G, however, only supported sub-6GHz. That changes in June as Verizon is launching a...

Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Fold receive updates with May 2020 security patches

Remember when Samsung rolled out the January 2020 security patches to a bunch of phones even before Google published the corresponding security bulletin?

A number of major OEMs maintain their own app store besides Google Play Store for the sake of offering device-specific exclusive content, or for setting up an alternative app distribution platform without relying on the Mountain View giant. Samsung's Galaxy Apps, later rebranded as Galaxy Store, is a perfect example of this tradition. The Korean...

Samsung Galaxy S10 and Note 10 update with the Galaxy S20 features will roll out in the U.S. tomorrow

Samsung was notorious for slow updates in the past. They would take forever to get updates released and even longer to roll them out to devices.
