Samsung reportedly worked very closely with Google for optimising Adnroid on the Galaxy Fold, the world's first foldable phone.

The Galaxy Fold 5G will be available from EE's shops and website, as well as from Samsung Experience Stores, alongside Samsung KX, Harrods and Selfridges. And Samsung's software is better optimized for multitasking, since you can open more than one app on screen at once.

Among the apps supported at launch we find Facebook, the Office 365 suite, Spotify, Amazon Prime Video, Twitter and many more. In another news, Samsung is gearing up to launch its next Galaxy M-series smartphone - Galaxy M30s - in India soon and now Amazon India has revealed the launch date of the soon-to-be launched smartphone. In other words: Samsung is not only confident in the launch of the hardware, they're ready to roll with the essential software users want - right now!

Huawei has unveiled wireless headphones FreeBuds 3
The most remarkable feature of the FreeBuds is the adaptive noise cancelation (ANC), which is unusual in headphones of this size. Huawei introduced its own version of Apple's AirPods called FreeBuds in March 2018, and now the company has updated the product.

Unsurprisingly, every single model featured on this top 50 list can be characterized as a high-tier or mid-tier product based on LTE capabilities, and we also can't act too surprised to see 36 percent of these phones come from Samsung, with 20 percent from LG, and 15 percent from Google. Samsung could also launch the Galaxy A30s alongside the Galaxy A50s.

As far as the specifications are concerned, the new Galaxy A50s will feature a FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity U display along with resolution of 1080X2340 pixels. Thanks to that close collaboration with Google, they can update their apps to the latest Android 10 APIs' using even Android's official emulator to test their apps. This suggests that multi-tasking and app continuity between screens will be a big focus for these apps. Those features have been included in the just-released Android 10. This afternoon, Samsung announced that "hundreds" of apps have been optimized for the Fold as we await a launch here in the US.
