    The Sony Xperia 1 II is a phone I would love to get my hands on. When it was announced back in February, it ticked so many boxes for those of us looking for something different, who are starting to get sick of the same ol’ 3-4 phone lines we review over and over. Sony

    OnePlus and Epic Games announced this week that the OnePlus 8 lineup now supports Fortnite at 90 frames per second, the best refresh rate available for the game on a smartphone.

    We recently went eyes-on with a few Galaxy Note 20 CAD renders based on reported measurements. This week, we’re getting the same for the Galaxy Note 20+. There’s only a couple big differences between the two devices, at least when looking at these renders. On the Note 20, its display was not overly curved, while

    I’m starting to get the sense that RCS might finally be taking off after all these years. Thanks to carriers initially not wanting to play nicely with Google for the messaging service, there was slowness to adopt, but then Google said, “To hell with you all,” and pushed RCS out through its own app to

    Read the original post: RCS End-to-End Encryption Hinted at in Internal Google Messages Build

    For Google Messages to continue to take steps towards matching Apple’s iMessage in features, its biggest need is arguably in the private security department. We’re talking end-to-end encryption over messages, which Google has yet to include. According to an internal “dogfooded” build that showed up this weekend, Google might be readying it. The Messages build
