This announcement dovetails with an earlier statement that Samsung would push out the update on a global scale.

OptoFidelity said that it used its own Touch Panel Performance Tester to measure the iPhone 5C, iPhone 5S, and Samsung Galaxy S3. The device uses a robot to "touch" exact coordinates on a screen. It then measures the coordinates of the touch device to see how closely they matched.

The Galaxy S4 went on sale in April, with sales reckoned to have hit 10 million just under four weeks later. Just over two months after that, in early July, the 20 million milestone was hit, … Read more
Good news, road trip fans! Astronomers say they've spotted the most distant potential destination: a galaxy far, far away (road not included).
