Samsung introduced Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 as the first members of the 2020 A-series and we recently learned the company is following them up with a 5G version of the A51 for its home market. Now we hear the A71 is also getting support for next gen networks.
The version with model code SM-A7160 is heading to China, but is otherwise identical to the SM-A716U and SM-A716U1 – the carrier-locked and unlocked versions for the US market.
Both variants are currently under development, but SamMobile did not disclose its source. The predecessors Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A70s did not arrive in the United States, so it would be a nice surprise for the fans of the brand to see the new midranger.
There is also the assumption that since Samsung is working on a 5G variant of the Galaxy A51, it might hit China and the United States as well. The elephant in the room is what chipset all these next-gen devices would use – Samsung has only the Exynos 980 with integrated 5G modem and might have to rely on Snapdragon 765G for the Galaxy A71 5G.
Epic being sued over Fortnite's Coral Castle – GoNintendo
Coral Castle is a location in the current Chapter of Fortnite, which you can see in the image above. Turns out Coral Castle is also the name of a real-life location in Florida. The company behind that location, which is also known as Florida’s Stonehenge, is out to sue Epic for using the Coral Castle name in Fortnite.
There’s more to the lawsuit than just the name, though. The people at Coral Castle museum feel that the Fortnite location has a lot of similarities to the real-life spot, including “nautical/beach motifs, castle structures, partial castle walls, and stone objects.”
Coral Castle wants to get monetary damages associated with the confusion between the two, and for Epic using the trademarked name without their permission.

'Fortnite' app removal threatens social lifeline for young gamers – Fox Business
NEW YORK/BENGALURU – A YouTube alert interrupted Jack Erricker’s schoolwork on Friday morning as he and kids all over the world woke up to the news that their favorite game, Fortnite, had been taken down from Apple’s Store and Google Play store.

“It’s basically the only game I play,” said Erricker, an 11-year-old in Bengaluru, India, an avid Fortnite player on his Apple iPad. “I’m not happy, I don’t think it’s a good move.”
Fortnite, which has attracted more than 350 million players globally, is especially popular among younger gamers and has become one of the few lifelines to the outside world for kids trapped at home during the coronavirus pandemic. Unable to play outside, kids are spending hours with friends chit-chatting and fighting on Fortnite, which is free to play and available on nearly all devices.
Apple and Alphabet Inc’s Google on Thursday removed Fornite from their app stores for violating in-app payment guidelines, and the news spread rapidly among kids who are otherwise too young to get headlines off CNN, the BBC or the New York Times.
Removal means no new players can download the game and the app will not receive updates from the store. But the game will continue to work for now for those who already have it.
Calum Jack, an eight-year-old from London, heard the Fortnite news from friends in Asia as soon as he woke up at 6 a.m. The topic was “all over YouTube,” he said.
He is online up to 10 hours a day, playing, building or just chatting with up to 20 friends as far apart as Canada and India. Fortnite and other online games have been Jack’s main social outlet since coronavirus lockdowns closed schools across the world in March.
“It’s been very important since we’ve been on holiday. We play all the time,” he said.
Fortnite-owner Epic Games has challenged Apple’s policy of taking a cut of purchases made inside the app by allowing users to pay Epic directly at a cheaper price. The financial ramifications of the move were apparent even to young gamers.
“Epic was cutting into Apple’s profit margins,” said Zoraan Kunnel, 13, of Bengaluru, India.
On Thursday, Epic released a video within Fortnite, on YouTube and other social media channels mocking Apple’s iconic “1984” ad with the hashtag “FreeFortnite.” The hashtag has trended on social media and racked up nearly 26 million views on short-form video app TikTok.
“My friends think that Fortnite is going to win the argument,” Erricker said. “There’s a lot of people who play Fortnite, and they’ll be against Apple.”
As to what Jack will do if the game stops working on his iPad, he said: “”I’d just play on the [Sony] PS4.”
