[Update: A50 Verizon sales] Samsung is finally bringing one of its good mid-range smartphones to the US

A cheap triple-camera phone with an in-display fingerprint sensor and a headphone jack? The Galaxy A50 is just exactly that. It's been doing the rounds in Eurasia for three months at this point and is due to hit one carrier starting this Thursday, June 13, for a pretty darn decent price. And if that weren't enough, the United States is also bound to take on the Galaxy A20 and A10e as well in later weeks.

Get a dual-SIM Galaxy S10e for just $500 on eBay

The Galaxy S10e may be the lowest-priced member of the S10 family, but its arguably the most interesting, offering value-for-money unheard of in the Galaxy S range. The international dual-SIM variant of the S10e has been dropping in price, from $600 in April, to $520 in May, and now to $500. If the lack of warranty is a deal-breaker, $550 gets you the US variant from B&H.

Diminishing differentiation: Are all our gadgets making each other redundant?

There sure are a lot of gadgets around. Consumers today own laptops, desktops, tablets, televisions, e-readers, smartphones, smartwatches, smart speakers, smart displays, smart TVs, and smart everything-elses in myriad combinations. If you’re economically fortunate enough, you might own at least one of each of these categories of products, and for some categories, probably more than one.

As much as I delight in this abundance of gadgetry, sometimes I take a step back and think, isn’t this a bit much? Not because of some penchant for minimalism or an anti-consumerist attitude, but because of all the overlap. So many of these devices do the same things.

The Galaxy Fold isn't dead, Samsung will announce a new launch date soon

Samsung tried to launch the trend-setting Galaxy Gold several weeks ago, but things did not exactly go to plan. After handing out a few review units to prominent publications, the folding screens began failing at an alarming rate. Samsung delayed the phone and pledged to fix the issues.

Verizon launches RCS profile with support for Galaxy S9, S9+

The state of RCS messaging in the United States is a little bleak at the moment. Sure, it's got a massive character limit that puts SMS to shame, more multimedia options than MMS, and read receipts, but availability is inconsistent and the resources it takes to set up servers are not small. Verizon had planned on bringing on its RCS profile by "early 2019," and, if you consider "before July 1" early enough for you,  it has succeeded in delivering it to the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+.

We're eagerly awaiting the latest installment of Samsung's Galaxy Note series, and the rumor mill is already spinning fast. We've heard that Samsung plans to release four Galaxy Note 10 models with both 4G and 5G options, and a source familiar with the matter already whispered to us that the latest model is likely coming without a headphone jack and physical buttons. Now, the first CAD-based renders of the device have been published through OnLeaks, and sadly, there's indeed no headphone jack in sight – the buttons, on the other hand, look alive and well, so make of that what you will.
