T-Mobile rolls out Caller Verified spam call protection, starting with the Galaxy Note9

To say that spam calls are annoying would not only be redundant, but it'd also be a big understatement.

The way that smartphones send and receive messages is changing, and the name of the game is now RCS: Rich Communication Services.

Last year T-Mobile brought compatibility to a number of Samsung devices, and it's continuing to do so now with RCS Universal Profile support coming to the Galaxy Note8 and Galaxy Note9.

Galaxy Note9 Android 9 Pie update starts rolling out in Germany

Samsung, I must tip my hat to you. The company is doing a better job this year with the Pie update than it has in any year prior. After beta testing Android 9 with One UI on its Galaxy S9/S9+ and Note9 for a bit, it rolled out the stable version to the former on Christmas and updated its forecast for the latter to say it would land in January instead of February. True to its word, it didn't take more than a couple of days for this to happen.

Samsung Experience is now One UI, but everyone's just going to keep calling it TouchWiz

It's been a long time since Samsung actually shipped a phone with TouchWiz — more recent software has gone by the unimaginative "Samsung Experience" moniker — but the company's heavy-handed changes in Android have kept the dirty word around as something of a software slur. Samsung has just announced a new interface design for its Android 9 Pie update that it's calling One UI, but if history is any indicator, you're still gonna call it TouchWiz.

[Update: Orders open] Samsung Galaxy Note9 to soon be available in Midnight Black and Cloud Silver in the US

Oddly, Samsung released the Galaxy Note9 in the US with only two colors, neither of which can be considered conventional: Ocean Blue and Lavender Purple. That was a big step from the standard black/white/gold palette that's been popular for years, though it looks like Samsung is slowly bringing that back to the US to some degree with the reintroduction of Midnight Black and Cloud Silver.
