The iPhone 7 may cost half the average annual salary in India, but that’s not stopping it from trouncing rival Samsung when it comes to premium smartphone marketshare in the country.

While Samsung garnered just 23 percent of the Rs 30,000 and up ($437-plus) market last month, Apple almost tripled this with a 66 percent share of high-end smartphone unit sales. Google’s new Pixel smartphone slid into third place with 10 percent of the market.

Samsung Electronics has revealed that it is considering splitting itself into two separate companies, as the result of intense pressure from shareholders.

The South Korean tech giant will carry out a review to look at the implications of such a massive move, although in a statement it noted that such a review “does not indicate the management or the board’s intention one way or another.”

Thought you’d caught ’em all in Pokémon GO? Think again. An update coming next month is expected to add another 100 creatures to the game, as well as some big new features.

Apple generously gives new Apple Music subscribers a three-month free trial before demanding its monthly fee, and now Google is beating it.

For a limited time, the company is offering four months of free access to Play Music and YouTube Red for new customers.

We’ve been waiting for WhatsApp to offer video calling since the feature first leaked out last December — and now the wait is finally over.

The app’s latest update, which is available on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone, lets you video chat with other WhatsApp users for free.
