In an effort to make navigation much easier for its users, Snapchat has just launched a universal search bar in its interface. This new universal search bar is easily (and always) accessible at the top section of the mobile app, and people can easily make use of it when searching for friends, groups, Discover publishers, and Our Stories. This latest feature from the messaging giant is now currently being deployed to select Android mobile devices, and it should start arriving at iOS mobile devices as well any day now.

Two of the most prominent brands in the world of mobile are looking to bring fully functioning foldable smartphone devices to life as early as this year. As reported by the Korea Herald, South Korea’s biggest phone makers, Samsung and LG, both have plans to release bendable handsets in 2017.
It appears so. As seen on the official YouTube channel of LG, the South Korean tech giant has posted a new video, which goes about teasing its upcoming flagship device for this year, the G6. The 45 second long teaser ends with the launch month -- February 2017.
Is 2017 the year for comebacks, especially for old mobile brands? It certainly seems so, with BlackBerry trying to manufacture one, and of course, Nokia, which has recently launched its first ever Android smartphone, the Nokia 6, in China, the world’s biggest market for mobile phones. But there is no doubt many Nokia fans are wondering -- will the Nokia 6 launch in international markets though?
