HTC reveals the U12 Life: A slightly boring mid-range phone that won't be coming to the US

HTC is continuing its recent attempts to sell phones in the so-called "premium mid-range" market with the newly announced U12 Life. Specs are about what you'd expect for incremental improvement over last year's U11 Life, with a 6" 1080p-equivalent 2:1 display, new dual camera configuration, and Google Pixel-reminiscent two-tone rear design. Unlike last year's model, though, this one won't be coming to the US.

Galaxy Note9 is official: Bigger battery, powered S Pen, and Fortnite for $1,000

In keeping with Samsung's yearly tradition, the latest entry in the Note series has been formally revealed. The new Note9, like the S9 before it, is an incremental advancement over its predecessor rather than an outright revolution in design. Packing the latest Snapdragon 845 and a sizeably increased 4,000mAh battery, Samsung's new Note phone includes all the best features we have come to expect from a 2018 flagship, with none of the notch. In keeping with the swelling specifications, the price has also increased to a round $1,000.

Florence is an emotional game about relationships by Monument Valley's lead designer, and now it's out for Android

When it landed on iOS last month, Annapurna Interactive's Florence was a hit, almost immediately making the App Store's Editors' Choice list.

Samsung's Galaxy S9 is official: Fingerprint sensor finally in the right place

At its Unpacked event in Barcelona today, Samsung announced the long-awaited Galaxy S9 and S9+. The latest iteration in the Galaxy series incrementally improves on the S8/S8+ in a few small but crucial ways. The S9 and S9 plus feature a new low-light optimized dual aperture camera system (f/1.5-f/2.4), 960 FPS slow-motion video, and AKG-branded stereo speakers. Physically, it might look a lot like the Galaxy S8—and pricing matches last year's at $719.99 and $839.99—but there's one significant distinction. The fingerprint sensor is finally in the center, below the camera module, where it always should have been.

Few tech companies offer better bang for the buck than Xiaomi. That trend continues with the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus, which were just announced. Both the 5 and 5 Plus sport 18:9 displays with rounded corners, larger-than-average batteries, and low, low prices.
