With Android 10 recently launching for Pixel phones and trickling down to third party OEMs, there are now signs that Android TV 10 may be right around the corner.

Samsung Galaxy M30s

Although its less power-centric sibling is an admirable smartphone for most, the Samsung Galaxy M30s is the true showstopper of this release.
