Samsung is making a phone that could last for days on a single charge

Samsung is making a phone that could last for days on a single chargeLast year, Samsung announced a shift in policy when it comes to its smartphone business. The best phones Samsung makes, including the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note, won't be the devices to introduce new hardware innovations. Instead, the company will use mid-range phones to showcase new technologies and then bring them to flagship phones. We saw it happen with triple- and quad-lens cameras last fall, as well as the first Infinity-O display. These features started on mid-range handsets before eventually making it to the Galaxy S10 and Note 10.With that in mind, we're not surprised to hear that Samsung is developing a phone with a massive 6,000 mAh battery. But that device isn't the Galaxy S11, and there's no telling if Samsung's next flagship will end up getting a high-capacity battery like this.Dutch blog GalaxyClub found regulatory filings in Korea that show the image below, which is a 6,000 mAh smartphone battery.It's believed the battery will power a new Galaxy M model that will be released down the road, but it's unclear when the handset will be unveiled. This is the second time we've heard that Samsung is working on a 6,000 mAh phone, but we now have actual visual confirmation of the battery pack.Samsung also launched an M20 version with a 5,000 mAh battery (top image), so the upgrade makes sense for the series. However, unlike Galaxy A series handsets that Samsung uses to introduce new smartphone features, the M series might have a different purpose. M phones are priced cheaper than the A-series, targeting emerging markets such as India where battery capacity is a key feature when choosing a new phone.Packing a 6,000 mAh phone inside a device featuring sophisticated components like an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor or multi-lens camera system might be easier said than done. Those components tend to reduce the amount of space available for the battery. And after the Note 7 disaster, Samsung is being extra careful with battery safety.The same goes for the Galaxy Note, where a chunk of the phone's internal space is reserved for the S Pen stylus. Samsung explained earlier this week that it removed the headphone jack from the Note 10 phones to increase battery life by a measly 100 mAh. The road to bumping capacity all the way from 4,500 mAh to 6,000 mAh on these phones is more complicated.This is all speculation for the time being, as it's unclear when the new Galaxy M with this massive battery will be released. When it does launch, however, it's entirely possible that it'll last for days before needing to be recharged.

Iran Watch: Should Trump Fear Tehran's Last Missile Test?

Iran Watch: Should Trump Fear Tehran's Last Missile Test?Iran does test medium-range ballistic missiles, although not commonly. What HappenedFor the first time since a standoff between the United States and Iran escalated into attacks on oil tankers, Iran has conducted a medium-range ballistic missile test. According to U.S. officials, Iran test-fired a Shahab-3 medium-range ballistic missile earlier this week that traveled 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) — distance enough to hit Saudi Arabia and come close to Israel.Iran's strategy in carrying out the test is likely twofold. For one, Tehran is engaging in a show of force against the United States as part of the aggressive regional strategy it has pursued over the last three months. At the same time, the launches provide Iran's engineers and missile designers an important opportunity to test technical and operational designs as part of the country's wider ballistic missile program. Iran's Missile Motivations

FBI Director: White-Supremacist Violence Accounts for Majority of Domestic-Terrorism Arrests Since Last October

FBI Director: White-Supremacist Violence Accounts for Majority of Domestic-Terrorism Arrests Since Last OctoberFBI director Christopher Wray told Congress on Tuesday that the majority of domestic-terrorism arrests since last October have been linked to white supremacy."I will say that a majority of the domestic-terrorism cases that we’ve investigated are motivated by some version of what you might call white-supremacist violence, but it does include other things as well," the FBI chief said in testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee.Wray explained that since October, the FBI has arrested about 100 people on international-terrorism charges and about the same number of individuals on charges related to domestic extremism.The FBI director emphasized that his investigators' "focus is on the violence.""We the FBI don’t investigate the ideology, no matter how repugnant. We investigate violence. And any extremist ideology, when it turns to violence, we’re all over it," Wray said. "We take domestic terrorism or hate crime – regardless of ideology – extremely seriously, I can assure you, and we are aggressively pursuing it using both counterterrorism resources and criminal investigative resources and partnering closely with our state and local partners."President Trump has repeatedly come under fire for using rhetoric that his opponents say encourages violent, racist tendencies. Critics have warned that violence resulting from white-supremacist ideologies has been on the rise since Trump took office.“I don’t, really,” Trump said in March when asked if he thinks white nationalism is a growing threat. “I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems.”The highest-profile act of violence perpetrated by a white supremacist over the last few years occurred at a 2017 white-nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., where one of the male rally-goers murdered one counter-protesters and injured dozens of others by mowing them down with his car. The man has received several life sentences for his crimes.

French submarine lost in 1968 found at last in MediterraneanA French submarine that went missing in the western Mediterranean in 1968 has been found, officials said Monday, ending a 51-year wait for families of the crew who continue to seek answers to the naval disaster. The diesel-electric Minerve submarine was lost off France’s southern coast with 52 sailors on board on January 27, 1968. “We found the submarine Minerve last night located 45 kilometres (30 miles) south of Toulon, about 20 kilometres further south than where it was searched for in 1968,” the French maritime prefect of the Mediterranean, Vice Admiral Charles Henri du Che, told reporters in Toulon.
