Sega Brings Classic Sega Games To Smartphones

Do you still remember Sega?

That’s name behind the wonderful game console and games that made your childhood days amazing.

Sega Brings Classic Sega Games To Smartphones 1

Sega seemed to go under the radar for a couple of years , and when such things happen to a company it doesn’t take a scientist to tell that they’re going down. In what I would call a last attempt to get back into the game business, Sega is adopting a new strategy. However, it’s quite possible that people would put down their HD games for a couple of days to get a taste of the past.

The video game company has launched Sega Forever, which is aimed at keeping the Sega name alive long into the future.

To keep the Sega game alive, they are coming for their old fans have found comfort with their Smartphones. There is no better way to make a comeback other than this.

Sega was unarguably one of the biggest game companies on the planet then. Their consoles, which included the Genesis (or Mega Drive) was so amazing, it kept so many kids excited and pinned down in front of the T.V set.

Sonic the Hedgehog, Ecco The Dolphin and Seaman; if you were really a gamer right from your childhood days, these names I just mentioned will strike up some memories of your wonderful gaming moments.

Sega’s most expensive mistake that set them on the track to almost extinction was the release of the Dreamcast, a highly underrated console. However, Sega still exists and develops arcade machines and games for other consoles but their name is not a success as it used to be in the past.

With Sega Forever, the company hopes to make its comeback in the world of mobile gaming too and hopefully they will make a successful comeback since Smartphones are exactly what’s keeping their old deserted fans busy right now.

The games will be free to play, and supported by ads. Anybody that hates seeing the ads can make a one-off payment of $1.99 (per title) to turn off the ads.

Already, Sega has already launched five Genesis titles: Sonic the Hedgehog, Comix Zone, Altered Beast, Kid Chameleon, and Phantasy Star II. New games will be launched every two weeks, with titles from the Master System, the Game Gear, the Saturn, and the Dreamcast still to come.

All Sega Forever titles will be available to play offline, but to add more spice and make it fun, online leaderboards are also available.The older Sega titles will be brought to smartphones thanks to emulation, while the more recent titles will have to be ported to iOS and Android.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria – Full Specifications

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Launched In Nigeria - Full Specifications 9

The Infinix Smart 3 Plus is a new device launched by Infinix Mobile and it comes with decent specifications. It’s a device I would say is a mid-range budget device so don’t expect much power from this phone.

INFINIX SMART 3 Plus

I still feel with Xiaomi around in Nigeria now Infinix would have stepped up their game but it seems they’re just recycling designs ever since they released the first device with a tear drop notch.

Infinix Smart 3 Plus Features

The triple rear camera is quite interesting as well.  In terms of design you get a plastic unibody with glass-finish at the back. The glass-finish adds a premium finish to the phone but unfortunately makes it a fingerprint magnet.

There’s also a microUSB port, the 3.5mm headphone jack and a microphone just right below the device. The front of the phone shows the teardrop notch, the selfie camera and the earpiece. Sound quality is not that bad however, The Smart 3 Plus has a downward firing mono speaker which isn’t too loud and you’ll actually prefer using your headphones. I still wonder why Infinix didn’t use the Dirac Speakers in this device.

It has a HD+ resolution display with a 2.5D glass for a premium feel. But I’m a bit disappointed with the 720p resolution and the large display doesn’t actually show what we all expected. It’s a bit low but I’m guessing it’s a sacrifice to put the phone in the budget range.

The back of the phone houses the triple-camera setup .The primary sensor is a 13-megapixel camera with a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a low-light QVGA sensor.

Let’s take a look at the quick specifications of the device

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore 12

I woke up to a very disappointing news yesterday,Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially Anymore and believe me I was very upset about this move. This is coming at a time where Huawei is making changes to the Android market as we know it and Google revoked their licence based on mere accusations,

Accusations that haven’t been even proved to be true. This decision would probably worsen the trade war between China and the United States.

The consequences of this may end up affecting all technological markets and the world economy in general. Don’t forget that Huawei is the world’s second-largest seller of smartphones

Huawei Phones Not Allowed To Use Android Officially

Newer devices from Huawei will not be able to install Android updates, or any Google apps, including Google Play Store and Gmail. However, you can simply access those Android updates through AOSP and GAPPs but without any support from Google.

Donald Trump had accused Huawei of working for the Chinese government, installing back doors in their networks and devices to facilitate surveillance, without any evidence at all.

This made the senior manager of Huawei get arrested a few months ago. Since then, both China and the United States have imposed tariffs on their respective products. Recently, the Trump Administration added the Chinese brand Huawei to the blacklist of the Department of Commerce, hence, forcing American companies to stop having commercial relations with Huawei.

However, according to Reuters, Google is the first to comply with the recently approved law, but other US companies that have commercial relations with Huawei, like Qualcomm, Intel, NVIDIA, will have to make a similar decision.
