Confirmed! Samsung Galaxy S10 gets update to Android 10 later this year! 1

Late last week, the first indications came that the Samsung Galaxy S 10 could end up for receiving the Android update 10 (One UI 2.0) much earlier than expected. According to official brand plans, the high end should only be updated at the beginning of 2020.

However, several users in Germany have confirmed that they are already receiving the update for the new version of Android. Although the former were only members participating in the brand testing program, since then the rest of the users have also started receiving the desired update.

Germany is not the only European country where the Galaxy S 10 is receiving Android 10

Whereas officially Android 10 was expected on the Samsung Galaxy S 10 only during the beginning of next year, was the possibility that the German market was serving as a “test” for the release of the stable version.

However, today came the first confirmation that the update is already reaching users in the UK as well. For now, it appears that it is only being made available to users who are part of the One UI 2.0 testing program. But this is exactly the same as that which happened in Germany.

So it is expected that during this week the rest of the UK users will also get the stable Android update 10 for your Galaxy S 10.

Considering that the update is already being launched in two separate markets, it is believed that the remaining European countries will eventually receive the update before the end of the year.

We can only wait to see if Samsung will release the Android update 10 for your remaining smartphones.

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

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.
