Cyberpunk 2077 is also supposed to be released with Google Stadia, but no release date has yet been revealed.

Microsoft Office app reunified in major update: And why it’s my new default

Five years ago, Microsoft suggested we "try the new Word, Excel, and PowerPoint apps", as the lot replaced the "Office Mobile" app. This week, Microsoft decided they were better off pushing those apps back into a single app, now re-named "Office." If you never deleted the Office Mobile app from your phone back then, all you need to do now is hit the update button. Easy as pie!

Galaxy Z Flip iFixit dust test could raise more durability concerns

Foldable phones are fragile and expensive pieces of electronics but that only seems to tempt people more to find out just how much torture they can take. It turns out, not that much but each new generation is admittedly getting more resilient than the previous one. The Galaxy Z Flip, at least on stage, was touted to have addressed many of the issues found in the Galaxy Fold. Naturally, the folks over at iFixit couldn't help but put at least one of those claims to the test.

Samsung UTG on the Galaxy Z Flip will be available for other manufacturers

Samsung UTG on the Galaxy Z Flip will be available for other manufacturers

When Samsung launches a new smartphone, it sometimes does more than commercialize a new mobile device. Sometimes, that smartphone also becomes the showcase and demonstration of a new technology that the company will eventually commercialize and sell to other customers. That is the case for many of its displays, from curved edge screens to its different kinds of Infinity cutouts. Now it's also doing the same for the Galaxy Z Flip's foldable display cover window which it will be selling to other OEMs as Samsung UTG.

But as with the first 120Hz screens that landed on the first Razer Phone, there is some confusion as to what the feature can and cannot do or even when. Samsung may have opted to err on the side of caution much to some new Galaxy S20 owner's dismay but it seems that at least one of those will be "fixed" in some future firmware update.

Emperion Nebulus phone runs Android, Windows 10 on ARM if you believe it

Microsoft may have repeatedly botched its attempts at bringing Windows to the mobile space but there will always be people who still believe in that vision in one form or another. There will also always be companies who believe the same or at least capitalize on the hopes and dreams of Windows fans. After a short period of silence, one company has suddenly jumped into the spotlight with a claim that's too good to be true: a modern smartphone that not only runs Windows 10 on ARM but even Android beside it.

OnePlus 8 Pro may finally get an IP water resistance rating

OnePlus 8 Pro may finally get an IP water resistance rating

OnePlus may be unapologetic when it comes to bucking trends when it compromises the user experience, but it also seems to be just as unapologetic in backtracking from previously held opinions. We saw that a few years back when OnePlus, after ridiculing its peers, also ditched the headphone jack. This year, it might be falling in line with not one but two most-requested features, finally giving at least the OnePlus 8 Pro some formal dust and water resistance certification.
