256GB version of the Galaxy Note 8 spotted online

Some kind of leaflet, or maybe a manual, has leaked online. I cannot read South Korean (I assume that is the language there), but I certainly can read arabic numerals. Assuming that everyone who reads this knows arabic numerals, look at the upper left side of the leaflet. Written there is a number 256 with the GB letters after it. That pretty much certainly means that there will be a 256GB ROM version of the Note 8 smartphone. Will it be an Asia-exclusive? Maybe. I guess we will learn it in a few days, when the device is officially released on August 23rd. ...

Possible Samsung Galaxy A5 (2018) leaked in a third-party case render

Legitimacy of the render can easily be called into question due to two reasons: first, the source of the leak, a listing on Amazon India, lacks any substantial information about the device; second, from what I heard, Samsung hardly ever shares its product specs with third-party manufacturers so early before the item’s release. Still! Lets humour ourselves and treat this leak as if it was a substantiated news. Here is the list of features that can be read from the picture:– flip case made by Sailogic, compatible with Always On Display,– dimensions of the flip: 27 x 15 x 5 ...

Samsung Galaxy S9 may feature a modular design

Source of this rumour is unknown, which makes it somewhat unlikely, but there it is. According to someone somewhere, Galaxy S9 might be the first Samsung smartphone to feature modular design. What is a modular design? Putting it simply, it adds magnetic pins to the back of the device, allowing a variety of modifications (mods) to be installed onto the smartphone. Those mods may include adding a 360 camera to the smartphone, turning it into a console controller, a loudspeaker and much more.Again, this is just a rumour. There is no substantial proof to Samsung even pondering the idea of ...

How Facebook slithers its way back into the Chinese market

Facebook is not very popular in China. Okay, let me rephrase that; Facebook could be very popular in China if it was not banned there ever since 2009. Chinese government does not see freedom of the Internet as something worthwhile, and have blocked many foreign websites from appearing on the chinese web.This, though, does not stop Facebook from trying to get on the China’s good (and profitable) side once more. New York Times informs us that a new app has been released on the Chinese market. Its name is Colourful Balloons, and both its function and style are very similiar to ...

Probably-real name of Android O is teased

Android must have had lots of fun, keeping us in the dark about Android 8.0’s real name. Still, all good times must come to an end… Later today, Android will officially reveal the real name of its new OS. Still, as you know, the rumour train has no brakes!, hence why the above picture. The graphic has been posted online by one Evan Blass (all hail), who is a leakster whose leaks almost always turn out to be genuine. Mr Blass has not shared the source of this sort-of-news, so it cannot be said with 100% certainty that yes, Oreo will be the name of the Android 8.0… but this ...

iOS 11 SOS Feature Allows You to Temporarily Disable Touch ID and Require Passcode

In iOS 11, Apple has added an “Emergency SOS” feature that’s designed to give users a quick and easy way to summon emergency services should the need arise. As it turns out, there’s a secondary benefit to Emergency SOS – it’s also a way to quickly and discretely disable Touch ID. Emergency SOS is activated by pressing on the sleep/wake button of an iPhone five times in rapid succession. When the requisite number of presses is complete, it brings up a screen that offers buttons to power off the iPhone, bring up your Medical ID (if filled out) and make an ...
