Realme will only launch 5G smartphones in China in 2020! Will Europe be next?




Through the Chinese social network Weibo, Realme’s CEO made a rather curious announcement. The executive said that next year the Oppo subsidiary will only launch 5G smartphones in its home market.


This announcement reveals that even Realme’s upscale models for next year will be 5G compatible. The strategy of the company, as stated by its CEO, is to popularize these models among the younger ones to make them more accessible.

In 2020, the company will not launch any 4G compatible smartphone in China. This could be a “headache” for local operators if their 5G networks are not yet ready for such demand. Still, it should be noted that Realme is still a small brand in China.

Could Realme adopt the same strategy in Europe?

Honestly it seems unlikely to me, at least in 2020 .. Although the old continent has turned out to be a market important for Realme, it is not yet properly prepared for the future of mobile networks.

It is one thing to equip a country with this new type of networks. Another thing is to do it on an entire continent. Portugal is just one example of how there is still a long way to go for 5G to become the norm.

Given this scenario, Realme is likely to develop non-5G variants to market outside China. This way, your equipment will continue to serve those who are not yet ready for that future, inhibiting them from spending money on something they will not fully enjoy.

Realme wants become independent and want to lead by example

Realme has grown so impressive and it will have made you want to become totally independent. Recent news reports of the brand’s plans to completely separate itself from Oppo and have absolute control over its future.

This decision to market only 5G-compatible equipment may foreshadow what the future will be like. of the solo company. A courageous decision that should serve as an example for its competitors in order to accelerate the implementation of these networks worldwide.


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.
