The Morning After: Notch alternatives are getting interesting

Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

Netflix kept the pressure on this weekend with some new trailers -- don't miss the Stranger Things season three episode titles -- and the all-screen phone trend could go in a couple of new directions with Honor and Samsung's next devices. Meanwhile, Capcom is plugging ads into Street Fighter V.

Maybe this is a Marvel replacement?Netflix superhero show 'The Umbrella Academy' debuts February 15th

As with the comic, the series is based on the strange premise of 43 children being born to women who hadn't been pregnant the day before; seven of the children are adopted by a billionaire who trains them to save the world.

The View 20 will also feature a 48-megapixel rear camera.

Unlike the 5G showcase, though, it would include two front cameras, like some leaks have suggested -- possibly for standard and wide-angle shots.
