A jihadist accused of masterminding a deadly attack in Ivory Coast is also suspected of having planned a major assault in Burkina Faso's capital last year, a senior official said Friday.

Well, as we can see in a new hands-on comparison video, Samsung's bold new Galaxy S8 design is even more impressive than we thought when you line it up next to Apple's flagship phablet. With the Galaxy S8, Samsung has managed to stuff a 5.8-inch Super AMOLED display into a...

According to the latest figures from the Android Developers site, fewer than two percent of Android users have migrated to Android 7.0, the latest version of the mobile platform. That hasn't stopped Google from rolling out new versions of its OS every year though, and late last month, one of the company's senior VPs actually began teasing the next dessert-themed update with a playful tweet to a journalist. It would be uncharacteristic of Google to spoil the name of an Android update this early, but on Tuesday, VentureBeat shared some information regarding the update that sounds slightly more realistic. According to VentureBeat's source, the following three features could all be part of...

A source briefed on the matter told VentureBeat on Monday that the scheduled release date for the Galaxy S8 and S8+ has been pushed back to a week to April 28th. As VentureBeat notes, this can't technically be considering a delay since the phones haven't actually been announced yet, but with all of the leaks and rumors that backed up the April 21st date, it seems likely that Samsung has decided to adjust its release timing slightly with just weeks to go until the reveal event. The source didn't provide any specific reasoning behind the internal delay,...
