The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will be officially revealed on August,13th. Today, an image allegedly showing the Box for the unannounced Samsung Galaxy Note 5 was leaked today from Thailand. Specs for the next iteration of Samsung's high-end phablet are listed on the side of the box, and reveal that this version of the Galaxy Note 5 will indeed feature a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 (QHD). The device will be powered by the Exynos 7420 and will have 4GB RAM inside, along with a 32GB/64GB of storage.
On the back of the phone is a 16MP shooter that features OIS. The front-facing 5MP snapper is ready to shoot selfies and handle video chats. One area where Samsung has made a huge improvement with the Galaxy Note 5 is battery life. For the new model, a 4100mAh cell has been stuffed inside. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop is pre-installed.
Stay tune for our special coverage for the Galaxy Note 5 Launch!

While the Galaxy S9 and S9+ are still more than a month away from being revealed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month, it must be admitted that by this time last year, we were already seeing a lot of leaked S8/S8+ images. Nevertheless, we have the second best thing for you and that's... err... a leaked image of the official Galaxy S9 box. It may sound a little disappointing at first, but the image does reveal some interesting and exciting new details.
Aside from confirming some of the previously rumored details, the highlight of this leak are the camera details, which are as follows.
Super Speed Dual Pixel 12MP OIS (F1.5/F2.4)
8MP AF Selfie Cam
Stereo Speaker Tuned by AKG
IP68 Water and Dust Resistant
64GB Memory/4GB RAM
Earphones Tuned by AKG
Personally, I really hope this leak is true because of a different reason; if this is indeed an authentic image of the upcoming Galaxy S9's box, then it means that Samsung has not taken the Apple route and both the S9 and the S9+ will have the same set of dual cameras.

If you've been following the saga of 'loot boxes' in games and their legal position for the past few years, you'll know that it's been back and forth multiple times now. One body will decide that they're not a form of gambling and therefore they're legal, and another body will subsequently determine that they're gambling after all, and therefore ought to be regulated. The issue gets kicked between regulatory authorities multiple times without anything seeming to be done about it, and in the meantime, gaming companies continue to release games that contain loot boxes. Now, the United Kingdom finally appears to be ready to make a ruling on the issue.
The case against loot boxes is simple to state, and simple to understand. When a player uses real money to buy an in-game loot box, they're parting with that money in return for a reward of uncertain value. It might be that they get something that's worth more than what they've paid, or it might be that they don't. That's the same basic principle that drives every slot on every single online slots website you could imagine. In the United Kingdom, it's perfectly legal to play Nextgen online slots and run online slots websites, but they're licensed and subject to regulation. Loot boxes, despite their obvious similarities to online slots, are not. Excluding them from regulation has always been a contentious issue, and now one of the most important bodies in the country has decided it won't tolerate the situation any longer.
In what looks set to become a landmark ruling, the Gambling Committee of the UK's House of Lords has stated that loot boxes are games of chance, and as with other games of chance, they're subject to the country's Gambling Act of 2005. That would mean that any gaming company that wants to include loot boxes in products that are sold in the UK would need to have them licensed, and crucially would not be permitted to sell its products to children. That would prompt an enormous change of strategy from some of the biggest video game manufacturers in the world.
The UK is one of the world's biggest gaming markets, and if a change had to be made in the UK, it would likely affect policy and practice in terms of how games are made for the rest of the world. In what might be even worse news for the companies that rely on loot boxes for part of their income, the committee's chairman has stated that a ban on loot boxes could be enacted immediately because it wouldn't require any further legislation. The Gambling Act already exists, and so as it's been determined that offending games fall foul of the Gambling Act, they could be removed from store shelves instantly. They could also be blocked from being downloaded by anybody based in the United Kingdom. Such an order has not yet been given, but in theory, one could arrive at any time now that the House of Lords has reached its verdict.
Of all the gaming franchises that could be affected by such a ban, the Electronic Arts "FIFA" series of soccer games is the highest-profile. Creating successful "ultimate teams" within the game is a central part of the game's longevity and also a huge money earner for Electronic Arts. Without that lifeline, the "Ultimate Team" mode itself could disappear completely, and EA's resources could be severely diminished. If that were to happen, the company might find that few people display much sympathy. Loot boxes have been despised by players and family groups for several years now, and most informed sources predicted some time ago that a ban was inevitable.
Although the UK is the most important country (in gaming terms) to make such a proclamation about loot boxes, it is not the first. Belgium was the first country in Europe to ban loot boxes in 2018 and hasn't relented on that ban in the two years since. Late in 2019, PEGI - the organization responsible for providing age restriction advice and warnings on game packaging - stated that they would label any game that contained loot boxes in the future. The writing has been on the wall for a long time, and it's to be hoped that the majority of responsible video game manufacturers have read it and taken appropriate action. EA has almost finished work on the 2021 edition of the "FIFA" game. It's not yet known whether loot boxes or any similar mechanisms have been included within it. If they have, EA might be facing a race against the clock to remove the boxes from the game before the next soccer season begins.
The fear of groups who support tighter restrictions on loot boxes is that they create young gamblers. A video gamer who has grown up paying for loot boxes since they were eleven years old - or even younger - automatically has an understanding of how online slots and other games of chance work, but (presumably) have never had to spend their own money on them because their parents cover their bills. As such, they may struggle to act responsibly when presented with the opportunity to play ‘real' gambling games as they reach adulthood. Video gaming companies disagree with this view, but as we're seeing in an increasing number of rulings around the world, they appear to be losing the argument. For a ban to be implemented in the UK, the House of Parliament would have to concur with the House of Lords' assessment by way of a vote on the issue. It may currently be benefiting gaming companies that the country - like all countries - currently has more significant issues to address, and so the matter isn't presently considered to be a priority. Should the question arrive in front of elected officials in Parliament, though, history suggests that they're unlikely to disagree with the verdict of the House of Lords.
Taking all of this into account, we have to ask ourselves whether loot boxes have a future in video games in the United Kingdom or elsewhere in the world. If we were inclined to gamble, we'd probably bet against it.
