Verizon is releasing a new version of the 5G Galaxy S20 on June 4th, which supports its fast, Ultra Wideband millimeter-wave 5G network. The “Samsung Galaxy S20 UW” will be available for preorder on May 21st starting at $41.66 a month for 24 months or $999.99 full retail.

Samsung’s T7 portable SSD is now available following its introduction earlier this year at CES 2020. The T7 is the successor to the slim, wallet-sized T5 USB-C SSD that came out in 2017.

Apple’s upcoming iOS 14 could have a new augmented reality app that can read Apple-branded QR codes and might have new features baked into the Find My app, according iOS 14 files obtained by former TechCrunch reporter Josh Constine.

That new AR app, called Gobi in these files, could be able to read both more traditional-looking QR codes and an interesting new circular design for QR codes, reports Constine. Constine also shared images of what those QR codes may look like:
