Microsoft Edge for iOS now supports 3D Touch

If you employ the mobile browser on your phone often, you might want to consider using the Microsoft Edge browser no matter which mobile OS you use. Smooth as silk, Edge allows users to browse across different devices, including your Windows 10 PC. The iOS version of the app has been updated and now works with 3D Touch to give users the ability to “peek” and “pop.”

Tap lightly on the Edge icon on your iPhone screen to see a preview of content. Pressing harder on the same spot will “pop” you into that content, making it “full screen.” The complete changelist from the update includes these …

Samsung recently published its Unpacked 2018 app in the Google Play Store. There is a countdown timer that ticks off the seconds until the 2018 Samsung flagships are unveiled next Sunday in Barcelona. Now you need to think about what Sammy has done here. A Reddit subscriber posted that his tear down of the Unpacked 2018 app discovered 3D images of the Samsung Galaxy S9. To access these images, media attending the trade show will take their individual press badge and tap it against their phone. That will allow them to see the Galaxy S9 in AR.

The images reveal a few things. There will be …

The first Samsung Galaxy S9 teaser videos are here: 3D emoji, slow-mo, superb low-light camera teased

SamsungMobileKorea has just uploaded a slew of Galaxy S9 teasers on its YouTube page, and just like any self-respecting video teaser should do, these all but confirm many of the key features that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are wildly expected to have.

The first video blatantly reveals the advantages of slow-mo videos, the second one is a dead giveaway for superb low-light photography thanks to the variable aperture that can go as wide as f/1.5, and the third one… Well, the third one is a sign of the times as it features 3D emoji, which would allow users to create animated …

Shooter games that use the iPhone's 3D Touch perfectly

Apple’s pressure-sensitive technology — 3D Touch — has been around since the iPhone 6s. That’s three generations of iPhones now and you’d think that game developers would already be using it by default. Sadly, however, it’s still rare to spot a game that uses 3D Touch, especially one that makes proper use of it, enhancing the gameplay experience. Especially when we are talking about shooter games.

If you think about it, shooters on a mobile device are the genre that benefits most from 3D Touch. The user doesn’t need to lift their right thumb from the screen in order …

Motorola's Moto E5 appears in 3D renders, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor confirmed

Most of Motorola’s 2018 lineup has already been leaked earlier this month, so there are little surprises still waiting for fans of the US brand. However, the Moto E5 was a bit under the radar when it comes to pictures and details about specs.

Probably the cheapest Motorola smartphone to be launched this year, the Moto E5 is expected to feature a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, something that companies usually save for their mid- and high-tier products.

Several 3D renders and a video made after the Moto E5’s CAD files confirm the positioning of the fingerprint sensor on the back …

Honor 8 update adds 3D panorama mode, lots of new features

Despite the fact that Honor 8 will not be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo, the smartphone keeps getting new features and improvements. It’s true that the Chinese company may change its mind and decide, by popular demand, that the Honor 8 is worth of a major software upgrade, but until then, let’s see what the newest update brings into the mix.

First off, there’s a new 3D panorama mode that will allow Honor 8 owners to shot 3D dynamic images. The new mode can be accessed via the Camera app, so you’ll have no issues in triggering it whenever you want.

Another important addition to the Honor …

Samsung's foldable smartphone might include technology similar to Apple's 3D Touch

If Samsung manages to launch the long-rumored Galaxy X, the foldable smartphone might benefit from some technologies that have yet to make it in any of the company’s products. One of these technologies is already implemented by the competition and everyone knows them as 3D Touch (Apple) or Force Touch (Huawei).

To some degree, Samsung implemented the pressure-sensitive technology to the Galaxy S8/S8+, but it’s only present around the virtual home button. Last year, the South Korean giant filed for a patent that describes a technology similar to Apple’s 3D Touch and Huawei’s Force Touch, …

Samsung officially unveils the Exynos 9810, touts AI features, advanced 3D "hybrid" face recognition

Back in November, we caught first wind of Samsung’s next-gen Exynos chipset, which was revealed in passing in press materials from Samsung. However, at that time, information about the new SoC was scant, with details being withheld for a final reveal further down the line. And here we are now, with an official announcement from Samsung, outlining some of the best new features and capabilities of the chipset.

The Exynos 9810 is still being built on Samsung’s 10nm manufacturing node, contrary to earlier rumors alleging an 8nm process, but the second-generation …
