Samsung to Launch More Galaxy FE Versions of Its Flagships: Report

Chinese social media leader Tencent has said its WeChat may not be able to win new users in the United States while the White House challenges a court ruling preventing a ban on the messaging app.

Tencent, in a statement filed at Hong Kong’s stock exchange late on Sunday, said it has been evaluating the potential impact of a ban since the US Department of Commerce on Friday issued an order to block WeChat downloads on national security grounds.

It also said routine updates of the app for existing US users may be negatively affected should Apple and Alphabet’s Google remove WeChat from their stores.

WeChat has a relatively small user base in the United States compared with in China, where the app is ubiquitous.

On Sunday, US Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler said a challenge to the proposed ban has “shown serious questions going to the merits of the

PS5 Size, Weight Revealed: Here’s How It Compares to Xbox Series X

PS5 is huge — alongside the international pricing and launch date reveal, Sony has finally given us the dimensions of the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition. The PlayStation 5 is 390mm (15.35 inches) tall, 260mm (10.23 inches) deep, and 104mm (4.09 inches) wide, which arguably makes it the biggest video gaming console ever. Its cousin, PS5 Digital Edition, is the same in most regards except that it’s 12mm (0.47 inches) less wide because it doesn’t have that disc drive bulge. And oh, this doesn’t even include the base, if you place the PlayStation 5 vertically, or those shark fins that protrude outwards.

If you were worried about the Xbox Series X not fitting in entertainment centres, well, the PS5 is even bulkier. The Series X comes in at 301mm (11.85 inches) tall, and 151mm (5.94 inches) in both width and depth. Of course, the Series X is wider than the

How to enable notification history for Android 11

If you’d like to be able to view your notification history on Android, you’re in luck. Android 11 allows you to view dismissed notifications from the past 24 hours. Jack Wallen shows you how.

How many times have you deleted a notification, only to wish you still had that information handy? Personally, it’s happened to me on enough occasions that when I discovered it was possible to enable notification history in Android 11, I immediately switched the feature on.

With notification history enabled, even if you do miss a notification, you won’t really miss it. Why? Because you can always check the history of your phone’s notifications and view everything you’ve dismissed.

You might not think such a feature important–until you need it. When that eventuality arrives, you’ll be glad the Android developers not only made it possible, but also made it simple.

Ambani is tapping the backers of his digital services business, which has secured $20 billion (roughly Rs. 1,47,384 crores) in recent months, as he seeks funding for Reliance Retail. Silver Lake, an investor in Jio, last week agreed to chip in $1 billion (roughly Rs. 7,489 crores). Other Jio investors, including private equity funds KKR and L Catterton, are also considering
