Pokemon Legends Arceus may outshine Pokemon GO thanks to this one detail

In the first gameplay trailer for the next-generation Pokemon game Pokemon Legends Arceus, we saw the future. The promise of the Pokemon game we've been dreaming of for a decade. EDIT: The game we've been dreaming of since it was made clear that Pokemon GO couldn't actually deliver a very similar dream until at least 5G was solidified across the planet.

Samsung Galaxy A32 4G strangely different from 5G variant

Samsung Galaxy A32 4G strangely different from 5G variant

The Samsung Galaxy A32 4G was revealed today with specs that seem to be better than its 5G edition. But here's the thing: they'll be released in different countries. You basically will not be in a situation in a store where both devices will be available at the same time. So it's not like Samsung's attempting to trick anyone with this naming setup.

Xiaomi Redmi K40 Pro flaunts Snapdragon 888 and a shocking price tag

Xiaomi Redmi K40 Pro flaunts Snapdragon 888 and a shocking price tag

Although it is Qualcomm's best bet for 2021, very few phones so far carry its Snapdragon 888 chipset. Those that do also have rather high price tags, including the Xiaomi Mi 11 to some extent. The Chinese smartphone superstar, however, isn't done with the Snapdragon 888 just yet and, at least for certain markets, it may have an even better offer in the guise of the Redmi K40 Pro and Redmi K40 Pro+.

Final Fantasy VII mobile games give a taste of the Remake

Final Fantasy VII mobile games give a taste of the Remake

Final Fantasy VII, abbreviated to FF7 or FFVII at times, is perhaps one of the most iconic games in a franchise that spans decades and generations of consoles. After decades of waiting, fans are getting their dreamed remake but, almost cruelly, they still have to wait again for the subsequent parts of the saga. In the meantime, however, Square Enix wants to distract fans with mobile spin-offs, including one that could perhaps be considered "spoilery" for the entire game.

Android Sleep API to make sleep tracking apps more efficient

Android Sleep API to make sleep tracking apps more efficient

There has been perhaps an overabundance of focus on activity trackers, most of them targeting, well, activities. While movement and exercise are, of course, important, they aren't the only measures of a healthy lifestyle. Sleep is just as important, perhaps even more so these days. In an effort to help app developers and, consequently, users develop better sleeping habits, Google is launching its new Sleep API to empower better low-power sleep tracking on all Android devices.

Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Fold receive One UI 3.1 update

Galaxy S10, Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy Fold receive One UI 3.1 update

Samsung is definitely no longer the Samsung we knew from years ago, at least as far as Android updates are concerned. In addition to pushing out more or less regular monthly security fixes and being quick with the major Android upgrades, it also committed to supporting its phones with up to four years of security updates. That may still be in the future but Samsung is now busy rolling out its latest One UI 3.1 experience that is now landing on its 2019 flagships.

Telegram improves self-destructing chats, expiring invite links

Telegram improves self-destructing chats, expiring invite links

WhatsApp's Facebook-friendly privacy changes have caused many users to flock to other secure messaging services. Those services, in turn, have rapidly pushed out changes to improve their features as well as prepare their servers for the sudden influx of new users. For its latest set of updates, Telegram is adding a touch of transience to some of its features, such as public chats as well as invite links, while also making sure that refugees from other messaging platforms will feel at home as well.

OPPO X 2021 rollable phone details revealed at MWC Shanghai

OPPO X 2021 rollable phone details revealed at MWC Shanghai

While the fate of the LG Rollable is still undecided, OPPO's own take on the rather exotic phone form factor is, at least officially, not headed to the market. Ironically, it is also the one that seems to actually be ready for production. At MWC Shanghai, OPPO naturally didn't miss the opportunity to boast about its rollable OPPO X1 2021 concept phone, both for its hardware innovations and the experiences its extendable screen enables.

Old Google Pay in the US will become useless in April

Old Google Pay in the US will become useless in April

It isn't exactly out of the ordinary that Google retires an app or service in favor of a new one. Often, but not always, it waits for the new version to at least be ready for the all old users to switch to. That didn't actually happen smoothly in the transition to YouTube Music but hopefully, Google Pay will be a different story. No, users are just being pushed to a new version of the Google Pay app and the company will be forcing users' hands by making the old one practically useless in April.

Raspberry Pi and OpenScan make a better 3D scanner than your phone

I have a question about 3D scanning devices: Why aren't they easier to access? Today a project by Thomas Megel made the rest of the handheld smart device universe look silly by comparison. With OpenScan project software, Raspberry Pi, and the Pi camera v2.1, Megel created a budget-friendly 3D-scanning system that's able to capture highly accurate 10-micron 3D scans with relative ease.
