In the final hours before Apple launches its iPhone 11 series, Samsung is doing its best to ensure its imminent Galaxy Fold isn't far from people's - especially near-future phone buyer's - minds. It is powered by the 10nm Exynos 9611 chipset that comes with AI powered Game Booster which improves frame rate, gaming performance and longevity on high performance games.

Samsung Galaxy A50s has been launched in Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White, Prism Crush Green and Prism Crush Violet colours. The successors to the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 are the A30s and A50s which are targeted towards millennials and come packed with premium camera features like night mode, Samsung Pay and Game Booster, to name a few. It is paired with 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, and runs Android 9 Pie-based OneUI. It has a 6.21-inch HD+ display, triple rear camera and a 16MP front camera.

Samsung Galaxy A50s features a 6.4-inch Full HD+ Infinity-U Super AMOLED Full HD+ display.

When you register a Windows 10 PC with the app and are using a LAN connection, you'll even be able to wake it via Play Galaxy Link. The smartphones have gone on sale today via Amazon, Flipkart, Paytm Mall, and Samsung Online Shop. Like the A50s this device also comes in 2 memory configurations - 4/64GB & 4/128GB. On the front, it houses a 32MP selfie shooter. There's also a 4,000mAh battery on board and it's the same capacity as its predecessor, with support for 15W fast-charging.

Apple Arcade launches September 19, priced $4.99 per month
A curated storefront that lets players cut through the fat is a decent idea, but it remains to be seen if people will pay for it. And, in India, the subscription will cost only ₹99 per month whereas, in the USA , the cost for Apple Arcade is $4.99 (₹358.57).

Optics at the back include a triple camera setup with a 25MP f/1.7 primary sensor.

Play Galaxy Link is still in beta for now, and it's only available in the United States and Korea to begin with. The phone will measure 59x75.1x8.9mm and weigh 174 grams and will run on Android 9 Pie One UI.

The entry-point model lacks some of the features that its more expensive counterparts have, but comes in as one of the cheapest phones Apple has ever sold. It gets a 4,000 mAh battery and 15W fast-charging support.
