A YouTuber has just leaked the OnePlus 5T ahead of time in all its full glory! Although the video has been deleted from YouTube officially, Dailymotion still has it so do check it out by clicking on this link right here. You better hurry up because it might not be there for too long now! Also, check out our screenshots just in case the video is deleted by the time you get to it.
One might question the need for upgrading to an OnePlus 5T though, because all the phone really has over the OnePlus 5 is the "edge-to-edge" form factor which in truth, is purely aesthetic. Do not get me wrong, people's buying decisions are indeed influenced greatly by the aesthetics of the phone, but unlike the OnePlus 3T, which came with a faster SD 821 SoC (OnePlus 3 had SD 820), the 5T does not really offer any significant improvement over the OnePlus 5. The fingerprint scanner is at the back now, but I am not sure whether that's an improvement! Everything else from the dual rear cameras to the 1080p AMOLED panel seems to be the same, only with a higher price tag.

Redmi is doing great with a growing number of units being sold. According to sources, Redmi has already sold around 200 million Note series devices. Redmi Note 10 series is the next smartphone due to release in India and just before the launching date, the Global VP of Xiaomi, Manu Kumar Jain has posted a tweet teasing the launch of the Redmi Note 10 in India. The tweet was retweeted and shared by employees and fans of Redmi Note series.
Every video of them includes a #SM10thChallenge. In the video, he says that the company will be making an announcement on Feb 10 at 10:00 IST. He tweeted, "Got the moves to be as smooth as the smoothest @RedmiIndia smartphone yet? The biggest Not-fication of the year is almost there! Unlock it with Me!, Upload your dance move with the #SM10TH challenge. 10 fans to win BIG!". We don't know what they have decided, but in the company's own words, the price will be BIG.
Redmi Note 9 series was launched back in March 2020, that features a 60Hz LCD. Although a high refresh rate wasn't a trend earlier last year, the realme 6 pro came with 90Hz panels. Still, Xiaomi managed to sell a good amount of Note 9 series in the region. We don't know if the Note 10 series devices would have LCD or AMOLED display, but it is likely that it would come with 90Hz or 120Hz to compete with the latest smartphones.
As per news and leaks, there will be two devices inside the Note 10 series - Redmi Note 10 vanilla model and Note 10 Pro. The former will be available in white, green, or grey colors, while the latter will be available in bronze, blue, and grey variants. As for specs, nothing is final unless we have any words from the official sources or we have the phone in our hands. The devices have already received India's BIS certification. The Note 10 will feature 4/6GB RAM while the Note 10 Pro will feature 6/8GB RAM with 64GB and 128GB internal storage.
Internet fraud has grown and taken different dimensions. As technology advances, so do fraudsters improve their techniques of stealing from individuals. It's prevalent to find unsolicited emails and text messages in your inbox, asking you to provide personal details.
Some of these emails and text messages contain malicious files. The aim is to infect your computer or mobile device and steal personal information.
The best way to ensure your online security is by using apps that protect you from scams. You can find the best collection of apps to protect yourself from spam and fraudulent calls on Appgrooves.
I use two of the top apps you'll find on the page, and they've proven very useful to me. While using apps will help, the points below would further guarantee you stay ahead of fraudsters.
Be Careful with Links
Your email service provider might mark a genuine email as spam sometimes. But it doesn't take away the need to be cautious of email messages on your spam folder, or just any new email at all. You should have an eye to spot unusual and unsolicited messages.
Fraudsters often offer cheap products for sale, or pose as a social network provider, and try to lure you into clicking an external link. If you fall for these scam tactics and provide your details on those phishing websites, your information will likely get stolen. You can lose sensitive data or even money from this.
Check links attached to your emails and ensure it's safe to visit. Also, ensure that the websites you visit are generally safe. Download files and software from trusted sites alone as some websites can embed malware in files gotten from their site, and your credentials are their target. Apps are available to help you identify spam websites.
Use Spam Filters and Antivirus
Fraudsters could send spam emails with attachments. These attachments mostly contain malware, targeted at stealing your credentials. Some might install malicious software into your system to enable the fraudsters to monitor your online activities. Before you download any attachment into your computer, ensure such email messages come from trusted sources.
Technology has continued to help us protect ourselves from spam emails and maintain our online privacy. Spam filters can help protect you from spam emails by scanning the emails you receive for malware and quarantine any malicious content in your emails.
If you download malware into your laptops, antivirus software can help you identify and remove such files, and ensure your credentials are safe. It's vital to have these tools handy, and from competent sources, to ensure you're safe. Scan your laptop frequently for malicious software and files, and follow the instructions of your antivirus software to deal with any identified malware.
Use Call Identifiers
Fraudsters are not limited to emails and text messages. Some can go the length of calling their target on phones and posing as agents of various trusted agencies or financial service providers. They might even offer to help you with certain products or services.
Most times, you might receive the call from a cloned phone number and think such requests or offers to assist you are coming from trusted agents. It's safe to be skeptical of calls from an unknown number. Don't be quick to provide sensitive information to such callers, except you're sure of the request.
Using call identifiers can help you identify who your actual callers are, and their location. Appgrooves has a collection of apps that can help you track the source of any unknown calls you receive.
Identifying and dealing with fraudsters can prove challenging. The importance of being cautious is paramount. Using apps and software can make it easier to identify and effectively deal with cheats. Get apps and software that best serve this purpose and be completely protected.
Samsung has already two variants of its latest flagship, Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. The Korean giant is now preparing to release a third variant with a smaller design, lower specs and lower price to be called "S6 mini".
Today, First Samsung Galaxy S6 mini live photos leaked, it shows a small 4.7-inch metal-unibody device with similar design as original Galaxy S6, but no curved display. We still have no official information regarding the specs of this device.
The Galaxy S6 mini is rumored to pack a Snapdragon 808 SoC, 2 GB RAM, 4.7" screen with 720p resolution, and a 15 MP rear camera but the rear-glass body is still unconfirmed yet. It is expected to launch on August,13th along with Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+.
LG G Flex 2 made an appearance before its scheduled announcement. A poster of the upcoming curved smartphone was caught on the CES 2015 show floor in Las Vegas.
As you can see above, LG G Flex 2 has retained the same design as its predecessor. However, we do expect that the device will bring significantly improved specs over last year's model. Earlier this week, Qualcomm teased the upcoming successor of LG G Flex. Unsurprisingly, the smartphone will boast high-end specs headed by the chipmaker's Snapdragon 800 family SoC.
LG will take the wraps off the G Flex 2 on Monday, January,5th during its official press conference. Stay tuned!
What you see above is indeed the official Galaxy S10 ad for Norway, which was aired accidentally on TV apparently! It could be a mistake, but it could also be a strategically planned "leak" by the Samsung marketing team as well. In any case, this is your first official look at the Galaxy S10 series of smartphones which will be unveiled in less than two days, on February 21st.
Everything seems to be at par with what was expected as we see the punch hole cutout for the front cameras in front of the device and three rear cameras on the unit shown. Also, the in-display fingerprint scanner is really a thing this year with the Galaxy S10 after all, as per the ad. Keep in mind though that the entry level Galaxy S10e will probably not have the in-display fingerprint scanner like its more expensive siblings. Also, a pair of white wireless earbuds might be included with some versions of the S10, but then again, I am not exactly sure about that. What I am sure about is the fact that Samsung has retained the 3.5mm headphone jack, much to the delight of everyone with a sense of practicality.
Google has heavily leaked information about its next smartphone - Pixel 4. Although Google couldn't make it to the position of the top seller of the smartphone, it still owns the significant appreciation of the consumers who like to buy a phone based on the camera specification. Google smartphone also features some custom specs that you won't see on other devices like a bespoke launcher or custom image processor. The pixel 4 is set to repeat this trend with, among the usual software tweaks there is hand gesture control in the phone.
Google itself leaked the rear camera of the device a few months ago, ahead of its launch confirming the leaks around its design. Since then it has also revealed a detail about its hardware specification embedded beneath its relatively think top bezel and it has appeared in the wild in both photos and videos. According to the leaks, it has relatively think top bezel which is something lots of smartphone manufacturers are moving away from.
The render of the device was surfed by the reliably connected Evan Blass. The render also confirms that there is no fingerprint sensor on the rear side. This may increase the possibility of having facial recognition technology for security. However, there is also a possibility of having an in-display fingerprint sensor. This is something we can't assume from the design leaks. While this phone isn't the most attractive in the market but it is certainly better than its predecessor Pixel 3XL. Other leaks suggest that it has a 90Hz display and anticipated still camera.
The next growth phase for the online gambling industry is currently underway. Arguably, online gambling is one of the fastest growing and most competitive industries on the internet. Through innovation and the ability to embrace the latest and greatest technologies, the industry has been able to sustain double-digit percentage growth over the last decade with no realistic end in sight.
If there were any doubts about which direction the online gambling industry might be moving, those doubts have quickly become a thing of the past. Clearly, the industry as a whole is putting much of its innovation efforts toward mobile gambling. While online gamblers having access to mobile sites like https://bacc168.net/ used to be the exception, it's now become commonplace to walk into a pub or coffee shop and see people playing games of chance for real cash on their mobile devices.
Mobile Compatibility Increases
In the early years of mobile gambling, access was limited to gamblers who were using mobile devices (tablets, smartphones) that were built on either the iOS (Apple) or Android operating platforms. The assumption was a great majority of the world's mobile device consumers were using iPhones or Android smartphones compliments of companies like Samsung. Indeed, the coverage seemed ample.
With that said, it didn't make sense to exclude an entire generation of online gamblers from being able to access a mobile app and play their favourite casino games simply because they bought mobile devices with the wrong operating systems. Remember, prior to the advent of mobile apps, gamblers could only use their mobile devices to access a "optimized" mobile website through a standard web browser. What the industry's software developers began to realize is the online gambling experience was being compromised by inadequate graphics and limited game libraries.
The good news is the issue has been addressed and almost all mobile gamblers now have access to a mobile app without restrictions. The apps are just as robust as its sister websites. That's been great news for people who own mobile devices that work off operating systems like Blackberry and Windows Mobile. The results have been amazing. Experts now estimate that 50% of all online gamblers are using their mobile devices to access gambling mobile apps on a regular basis. Based on the current growth trajectory, that number is expected to rise to about 80% sometime in the next couple of years.
Ramping Up the Quality of the Mobile Gambling Experience
Online gamblers have made clear which direction they want the industry to go. It's the responsibility of the online gambling industry's top software developers and operators to take note and do what's necessary to give customers what they want.
Before the mobile ambling craze got underway, developing casino games for a mobile format seemed like nothing more than an afterthought. Now, the tables have turned. Most of the industry's top software developers now create games intended for a mobile environment with the intention of converting them for use on a standard online gambling website. Mobile gamblers can now count on getting access to casino games that have high-quality graphics and audio features. That translates into a better mobile gambling experience for that growing population of mobile gamblers.
Adding New Innovations
Over the last couple of years, the online casino industry has seen a noticeable increase in the number of gamblers who are looking for a more realistic gambling experience. The industry's software developers, namely companies like Evolution Gaming, have heard the calls and are delivering the goods.
Live dealer games have become the rage for online gamblers. The opportunity to sit face-to-face on the computer with a beautiful dealer prompting the action has proven too much to resist. Now the live dealer gambling option is being introduced through gambling mobile apps. This tremendous innovation has the power to open many other doors the industry never thought to open
One of those doors is Virtual Reality (VR) casino gambling. In just the last two years, top software developers like NetEnt have successfully launched a VR casino for internet operators. With the right accessories (VR googles, game controller), gamblers can enjoy a legitimate three-dimensional online gambling experience from the comfort of home. But wait, there's more. This new technology is being scaled for mobile app access. Very soon, mobile gamblers will be able to enjoy the same VR gaming experience video gamers have been enjoying for years while on the move.
Who knows what else the future holds for mobile gambling enthusiasts? The wait is already on for the next innovation.
