Let’s take a quick look at the top tech news from today.



2. Samsung Galaxy S10 5G to be released on April 5

Pretty soon, the Samsung Galaxy S10+ will lose its position as the company's latest and greatest, which will pass on to the Galaxy S10 5G. The company officially confirmed that it's going to release its first 5G smartphone - which will also be the first in the industry - on April 5.

Initially, the handset was supposed to go out this month but it was delayed. Even so, it will still be the first commercially available 5G-enabled smartphone. It will be made available in South Korea, which aims to be first country in the world with a working 5G network too.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will also launch in the US as Verizon exclusive initially. There won't be any pre-orders but customers purchasing the phone between April 5-16 will get free Galaxy buds, a wireless charger and 50% discount on one screen replacement within the first year. Verizon's 5G network is supposed to launch on April 11.

So far, there's no word on pricing, but market analysts believe it will cost the equivalent $1,332 in South Korea so the US price will probably be in the same ballpark.

6. Huawei Enjoy 9S specs and images surface ahead of March 25 launch

Two weeks ago, we heard of Huawei announcing the Enjoy 9S with a 6.21-inch display and triple rear cameras. Now some more specifications of the smartphone have surfaced along with its images revealing the design.

The pictures show us that the smartphone will come with a waterdrop notch display surrounded by small bezels on the top, left, and right side. The notch houses an 8MP selfie camera, while the screen has a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels.

Round the back, the Enjoy 9S has a triple camera setup in vertical orientation below which is a text that reads "AI Camera". This setup consists of 24MP, 16MP, and 2MP units. The 16MP camera will come with a wide-angle lens, whereas the 2MP snapper will be likely used for depth sensing. The back is also home to a fingerprint scanner.

According to the leaked specs, the Enjoy 9S will have Kirin 710 SoC under the hood which will be mated to 4GB RAM. The smartphone will run Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0 and have up to 128GB of storage onboard.

The Huawei Enjoy 9S will come in at least four colors, with one of them being a gradient. It will ship with a 3,400 mAh battery, but it's unclear whether it will charge through a microUSB port or USB-C. However, we do know that the USB port at the bottom will be accompanied by a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the left, with the speaker presumably on the right.

The Enjoy 9S will go official on March 25 at an event in China - just a day before Huawei announces its P30 lineup at an event in Paris.

9. WhatsApp Business app finally comes to iOS

Facebook-owned WhatsApp announced its Business app back in September 2017 and launched it next year in January. But, the app was only launched on Android and there's been no word from WhatsApp about its availability on iOS. Fast forward to February this year, WhatsApp Business made it to iOS in the form a beta version, and it seems the testing has gone smooth as the stable version is now finally available on the App Store.

WhatsApp hasn't officially announced the launch of its Business app on iOS, but WABetaInfo reports the app is available in Mexico. Users from Brazil, Argentina, and France also confirmed the availability of WhatsApp Business for iOS in their countries.

Unlike WhatsApp Messenger, WhatsApp Business is a standalone app aimed at businesses. It comes with features like away message, greeting message, and quick replies. It also lets businesses add information like working hours, address, and links to social media account or website to their profile page.

If you live in a country other than the ones mentioned above and find WhatsApp Business on the App Store, drop a comment below.
