Samsung Galaxy S10

The Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event is almost here and the event draws us even closer to the launch of the flagship Galaxy S10 lineup. As always a number of leaks have picked up momentum and updates are coming in daily.

The latest leaks concerning the Samsung Galaxy S10 cover from the memory details to its imaging hardware, also mentioning the 5G variant and Samsung’s foldable smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S10 RAM And Storage

A couple of leaks also suggest that the Galaxy S10 Lite will be launched as the Galaxy S10 E and will have 4GB of RAM coupled with 128GB of inbuilt storage, while the regular Galaxy S10 model will come have 6GB of RAM alongside 128GB or 256GB of inbuilt storage. The larger Galaxy S10+ will have different variants that will come with 6GB or 8GB of RAM ticking alongside 128GB, 256GB or 512GB of storage.

Also Samsung’s 5G-enabled Galaxy S10 model will come with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM combined with  1TB of inbuilt storage.

 

Yes 1 Terabyte of storage, you didn’t misread that line

There will also be models with 256GB and 512GB of inbuilt storage.

The Galaxy S10-series smartphones will come with an ultra-wide 16-megapixel sensor with a f/1.9 aperture and 123-degrees field of view, but without OIS and autofocus support. It will be come with a rear 12-megapixel sensor with  a 78-degree field of view and a variable aperture. Lastly, the Galaxy S10+ will exclusively come equipped with a rear 13-megapixel telephoto lens (F2.4 and 45-degree field of view) that will have extra support for OIS and auto focus mechanism.

There is also a Bright Night mode and a portrait lighting effect, which is mentioned is simply described by Samsung as ‘Stage Lighting’. I believe this is Samsung’s response to the ‘Night Sight’ feature for enhancing low-light photography on Google’s Pixel smartphones. Additionally, the location of the LED flash and the heart rate sensor will also be moved away from their normal position as seen on the previous generation of Samsung flagship smartphones.

The Galaxy S10’s LED flash will be placed on the left side while the heart rate sensor has just been pushed to the right side.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Hardware

Coming to the Galaxy S10’s hardware, Galaxy S10 will come with 5 cut outs and its speaker grill design will still remain similar to the one found on the Galaxy Note 9.

However, the power button on the Galaxy S10+ is has been moved a little bit higher above the dedicated Bixby button, while the placement remains pretty much the same on the smaller Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 E which is really similar to the one you would see on the Galaxy S9.

Also, the Galaxy S10 series will come with a new set of AKG-branded earbuds inside the box that will have a different colour and will come with a brand new redesigned logo. Also, the  Samsung Galaxy S10 will boot One UI, however, it will have a navigation bar by default instead of the expected gesture-based navigation.

 

Extra details about the new Samsung foldable smartphone, which was on public display at the CES 2019 have also surfaced online. According to the leak, Samsung’s first foldable smartphone will come with 12GB of RAM , coupled with 512GB or 1TB of inbuilt storage. Also note that Samsung showed off a 5G phone prototype at the CES 2019 and has plans of launching the device in the first half of 2019.

 

The new Galaxy S10 leaks seem quite extensive, however, I would strongly advice that you take this information cautiously and take it with a pinch of salt

Attention! Bug on Android is frustrating users using PIN code

Published

on

attention!-bug-on-android-is-frustrating-users-using-pin-code

Last September, some Pixel users who use the PIN code to unlock their Android could not sign in to their device. Two months later, it seems that this bug has not been fixed and is now affecting third-party smartphones.

There are users of smartphones from Sony and OnePlus who are starting to complain about the same problem. This bug is apparently affecting models running Android 9 or Android 10.

Users cannot access your smartphone by its PIN code

The bug in question occurs when users try to use your PIN code to enter your smartphone. After validating your code, the smartphone screen turns off and then back on the lock screen, as if nothing had happened.

That is, if you have no other method of authentication enabled or available, you will be unable to access your device. A scenario that can be problematic for those who really need to use their smartphone.

Problem will stem from a process of validating your password

Recent Discoveries maintain that the cause of this bug is a method called “Synthetic Password Key”. In short, this method compares the code you entered as stored in the system.

It appears that this procedure is not being completed, returning a null value. It is this null value that is causing Android to crash.

As far as we know, this problem is not widely dispersed in the market, affecting a small group of users. Even so, it is important to alert you to using various smartphone unlocking methods whenever possible.

Google has said that it is aware of the issue and has already referred the case to the appropriate department. However, a solution has not yet been shipped to market.

You can now hear Samuel L. Jackson’s voice on your Amazon Echo

Published

Amazon has a habit of making celebrity voices such as singers or actors available in its Alexa smart column, to vary from the standard voice. The most recent addition is Samuel L. Jackson, whose “voice” can be added to the column catalog by 99 cents. All in English only is clear.

This way, Amazon Alexa users can now have Jackson’s voice answering music requests, weather status and all sorts of questions. Just ask Alexa to introduce you to Samuel L. Jackson or buy your voice manually.

Samuel L. Jackson’s voice has been recreated with technology

Instead of recording a ton of pre-made sentences, Amazon used a neural network that converts text to voice. Of course, the actor had to spend hours in the studio recording audio to create a sound base. However, the end result is a kind of deepfake vocal.

Comedy video “predicted” the actor’s voice on Alexa

In 2017, the comedy YouTube channel 80 gumdrops has released a video about a family that just bought an Amazon Alexa. The funniest part is that the column comes with the voice of Samuel L. Jackson by definition. During the video are played several sentences of his most iconic movies, complete with profanity and all.

Alexa will have an option “uncensored”

Samuel L. Jackson is known for his characteristic voice and a great use of profanity in his roles. As such, Amazon includes an unfiltered version of the voice, where the answers will be much more explicit. This option can be enabled or disabled in Alexa settings.
