China’s Huawei is forging closer commercial ties with big telecom operators across Europe and Asia, putting the company in prime position to lead the global race for next-generation 5G networks despite U.S. allegations it poses a security threat.Huawei’s dominant position in China - set to become the world’s biggest 5G market by far - is well-documented. However it has also been making in-roads in the rest of world to compete with rivals Ericsson and Nokia in several lucrative markets, including countries that are longstanding U.S. allies. 5G networks, now in the testing stage, will rely on denser arrays of small antennas and the cloud to offer data speeds up to 50 or 100 times faster than current 4G networks and serve as critical infrastructure for a range of industries. Deals to start building 5G networks are still largely a year away, but Huawei has signed 25 Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with telecom operators to trial 5G equipment, a Reuters review of company reports and announcements found.

Samsung fans are most likely focused on learning as much as they can about the company's upcoming flagships – Galaxy S9 and S9+. However, there's another device that South Korean handset maker is likely to introduce later this month at Mobile World Congress 2018, a new tablet.Even though the Galaxy S9 is expected to steal the show, Samsung has another ace up its sleeve, the Galaxy Tab S4. The unannounced tablet has been recently spotted at GFXBench, along with some of its specs.Naturally, the Galaxy Tab S4 (model number SM-T835) is a high-end tablet, so it's no wonder that it packs 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory. Although the listing doesn't mention the name of the processor powering the slate, we can safely assume the Galaxy Tab S4 will include a Snapdragon 835 processor since it comes with an Adreno 540 GPU (graphics processing unit).

iIf you're not acquainted with KGI Securities' analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, he's the one that projected that Apple is readying three new iPhones for 2018 - two OLED ones with 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch panels, and one LCD iPhone with a 6.1-inch screen. Well, the same market analyst now says that Apple could ship up to 100 million 6.1-inch LCD iPhones before 2018 is over and at $700-$800 a pop.If the predictions are true the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will replace the iPhone 8 as the cheapest option, while the 5.8-inch OLED iPhone will likely be the same size and weight as the iPhone X, and the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will be the iPhone X Plus that die-hard iPhone Plus fans are waiting for. Some believe that the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will lack Face ID and 3D Touch and will come with less RAM to keep price lower. Others believe that all three 2018 iPhones will have 19.5:9 displays and Face ID. More»

Egypt’s transportation app Careem said Sunday it had acquired RoundMenu and would start trialing food delivery services through the restaurant listing and reservation online platform this month. The Dubai-based ride hailing firm acquired the website and app for an undisclosed sum. “Careem will begin testing a delivery capability for RoundMenu customers on a small scale later this month,” it said in a statement to Reuters. RoundMenu has a presence in 18 cities across nine Arab countries, including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Egypt, according to its website. There is demand for delivery services in the Middle East, particularly in the Gulf Arab states where temperatures can soar above 50 degrees in the summer. Several food delivery companies, including Talabat, Zomato, UberEats, and Deliveroo, are active in the region.RoundMenu has raised $3.1 million in funding since it launched in 2012, the Careem statement said.
