Samsung accidentally posts Galaxy Note9 introduction video

We're only a few days away from the Galaxy Note9's August 9th announcement date, and as expected, things are getting pretty leaky. We've already seen high-quality photos of the phone, but Samsung accidentally posted a photo of it on its own site yesterday. The self-leaking continues today, with Samsung's official YouTube channel having uploaded (and taken down) an introductory video for the Note9 that clearly wasn't meant to be up.

Console beat 'em up 'Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn' is out on Android

Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn was created thanks to an Indiegogo campaign that started back in 2014. After years of development a release was imminent, but then the beat 'em up was delayed thanks to some licensing issues. Much of the game had to be largely reworked, which is why it didn't get released on consoles until June 2018. Despite the change in genre from the original Shaq Fu 2D fighting game, the reception has been overwhelmingly positive. Now that the dust has settled, Android users finally get their very own version, and you can pick it up for free off of the Play Store right now.

Google reportedly working on heavily-censored news application for China

A revamped version of the Google News application was unveiled earlier this year, at the annual I/O developer conference. During the event, Google CEO Sundar Picahai said the company had a responsibility to deliver news to users in need. Unfortunately, Google seems to be throwing that out the window as its ambitions to re-enter the Chinese market grow.

Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II re-released as a SEGA Forever title

Ah, good 'ol Sega, re-releasing what used to be paid titles as new ad-filled releases that contain the exact same game. The SEGA Forever program is rife with similar re-releases, so it's no surprise to see that Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode II is the next to join the bunch. If you own the old version that is now delisted, you will still have access to the download, but updates are now out of the question, which means it's only a matter of time before an Android OS update breaks your old copy. Luckily Sega provides a way to remove the ads in this new listing, but I doubt those of you who just had a death sentence handed down to your old purchase are going to freely give Sega more money.

YouTube is testing Stories that look exactly like Instagram's

For some reason, it seems like every single social media service wants to add stories to their platform. Snapchat really kicked the concept off, Instagram decided to copy it, and then Zuckerberg and friends decided to put it in Facebook too. Now, YouTube is joining in on the fun as well.

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S4 is a $650 Android tablet with laptop ambitions

Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab S4 this morning, a new 10.5" Android-powered tablet that seeks, first and foremost, to be seen as a laptop replacement (at a cost of another $150 for the keyboard dock). With the company's DeX UI first introduced via its desktop accessory for Galaxy smartphones last year, the Tab S4 can be used in a traditional, windowed operating system layout for productivity. This would seem to squarely aim the Tab S4 to do battle with the array of Chromebook tablets and detachables likely to hit the market in the next year.
