This year Samsung decided to go with the company's Exynos 7420 processor for both Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge instead of Snapdragon 810. As per the rumors floating around the internet, both Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge might use Snapdragon 820 and Exynos 8 Octa 8890 processor. Amid speculations, now the online community got hold of the model numbers of both of the devices.
According to this list, the Galaxy S7 (SM-G930) and S7 edge (SM-G935) will be released with either the Exynos or Snapdragon processor. This choice will be dependent on the market condition and wireless carriers. The devices featuring Snapdragon 820 are listed for China (SM-G9300, SM-G9350), Verizon (SM-G930V, SM-G935V), Sprint (SM-G930P, SM-G935P) and US Cellular (SM-G930R4, SM-G935R4). Please note that most probably these models will be used for CDMA carriers.
On the contrary the international unlocked models like T-Mobile (SM-G930T, SM-G935T), AT&T (SM-G930A, SM-G935A), Canada (SM-G930W8, SM-G935W8) and Korean variants (SM-G930 S/K/L, SM-G935 S/K/L) will be featuring Exynos 8 Octa 8890.

Samsung's been advocating the benefits of AMOLED displays for years, but it's doing it more frequently lately because it recently released its Galaxy Tab S 10.5 and Galaxy Tab S 8.4, the world's first high-res Super AMOLED tablets.
Without going into technical details, Samsung posted an infographic that shows why Super AMOLED screens are better than the LCD ones. Among the listed reasons you'll find a higher contrast ratio, wider viewing angles, and more accurate colors. Check the Infographic below.
@OnLeaks and 91Moiiles have collaborated in bringing this Galaxy Note 8 leak to you, which looks significantly different from what one would expect the Galaxy Note 8 to look like when it's actually launched in August. In fact, these renders are even quite different from what the previous leaks had shown us as well. Whether or not that's good news, it is for you to decide. While there's no confirmation that these leaks are authentic, OnLeaks and 91Mobiles are without a doubt, pretty reliable leaksters.
If you have not yet figured out what I am rambling about, then let me point it out to you; it's the top bezel. The design of the render shows the Galaxy Note 8 to sport a significantly bigger bezel on top than the Galaxy Note 8. It sounds almost unbelievable that Samsung would move away from the S8's bezel-less design which earned them so much praise this year. In fact, it suspiciously resembles the Galaxy Note 7 in many ways. Other design elements are more or less what's to be expected. There's the dual camera, with an awkwardly placed fingerprint scanner right beside the camera module, the 3.5mm headphone jack, the USB Type-C port, the mono speaker outlet, the front camera, the iris scanner, the heart rate sensor and the other usual stuff.

Every year we see better technology coming up in the mobile industry and so is the number of Android phones is growing. Some are good, some are not so good. Some devices are really exciting like foldable Galaxy Z flip, whereas others are slightly boring. Among all of these handsets coming every year, one device that has been successfully impressed many with lots of exciting features and innovative designs is Samsung's Galaxy S series.
Samsung Galaxy S10 was undoubtedly the best-selling smartphone for the company last year. And this year, Samsung decided to launch a trio of phones with the Galaxy S20, S20, and S20 ultra. These are very technically impressive gadgets but comes with a high price tag, not something that everyone can afford. You can argue about the price, but there is no denying that they get a lot of attention compared to the budget-friendly Chinese rival's devices.
Although there are three models of the Galaxy S20, their core is very similar. All three phones have 120Hz display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 processor, expandable storage, water resistance, and offers wireless charging. Out of three models, the Galaxy S20 is the cheapest one but it doesn't have support for mmWave 5G network and has the smallest battery.
All three models have the same Android 10 with One UI 2.0 operating system and use the dame processing chip. They have the same memory 12GB whereas the Galaxy S20 also comes with 16GB memory. The storage is limited to 128GB for Galaxy S20 whereas other variants are getting 128GB and 512GB models. The storage can be expanded to 1TB.
The primary rear camera for Galaxy S20 and S20+ are 12MP whereas for Galaxy S20 ultra it goes up to 108MP with f/1.8. The second rear camera is 64MP telephoto lens and 48MP for Galaxy S20 ultra. The third camera is 12MP for all models and only Galaxy S20 ultra has the fourth camera. The front camera is 10MP for Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and 40MP for Galaxy S20 ultra. The batteries are 4,000mAh, 4500mAh, and 5000mAh for Galaxy S20, S20+, S20 ultra respectively.
The Galaxy S20 series has a much higher refresh rate as compared to the previous phones. The 120Hz display on the S20 makes everything looks so flawless and faster compared to the traditional 60Hz displays. Samsung has offered four colors this time, including cloud blue, cloud pink, cosmic grey, and cosmic black.
When it comes to online bingo, you'll quickly notice a huge difference - there is so much more variety when it comes to playing bingo games online for fun. Each gaming provider may have their own different form of bingo games for you to play with, but if you are new to bingo playing, especially online, then here are a few essential games you need to familiarise yourself with first.
A lot of bingo games will appear familiar, with a number grid in front of you, the idea being to wait until your numbers are called and see if you win - well it's time to open your mind, as some of these games get rid of the number grid and funky bingo terms altogether!
Including 90, 80, 75, 70, 30 ball bingo, each one of these types of bingo is similar but contains a vital difference, so we'll start with the classic 90-ball bingo. If you have been to a bingo hall you have more than likely played the same format as online 90-ball bingo.
In joker bingo, a whole deck of cards is used. All 52 cards are laid out into 6 sets of 3x3 hands. In joker bingo, you will be shown the size of possible hands and then choose to buy a particular deck. There are two different ways to win in Joker Bingo, either a J-Pattern (when all the cards on the J pattern displayed have been called) or a Full Hand (when all cards on a single hand have been called).
Deal or No Deal Bingo
Deal or No Deal was a very popular television show on Channel 4 hosted by the legendary Noel Edmunds. You begin the game the same way as the show, by choosing a box to stay by your side. The cards in Deal or No Deal Bingo are made up of three rows containing five numbers each and nine columns. Players are regarded for one line, two line, and a full house which makes the player eligible for the Deal or No Deal feature. When a player is offered the Deal or No Deal feature it is time for them to make a decision on taking home the jackpot on offer or to take home the unseen prize they chose at the beginning.
This form of bingo is typically from Sweden. 5-Line bingo is fast-paced and action-packed, the rules are easy to follow as well so everyone can get involved. Each card is made up of a 5x5 pattern however there is no free square. Each column presents numbers ranging from 1 to 75, so there are five different ways you can win (one, two, three, four lines created vertically, horizontally and diagonally or a full house).
This is possibly one of the more unique online bingo games, only a few select sites offer this one. Instead of numbered balls, playing cards are used. Each ticket has card numbers represented on it for example 9, 7, 4, K, Q. From then on it is exactly like regular bingo, the cards are called out and you mark it on your sheet if you have it, the first to cover their card with marks wins!
You have possibly already heard about Tombola, it is quite famous but also very different from traditional bingo. Traditional tombola has people picking out a ticket that has already been linked to a prize, whichever ticket you pick means you get that prize instantly. Online tombola can vary even more with monetary amounts. There are different online tombola themes such as Vegas whereby a roulette wheel will decide the numbers called. Some forms of online tombola stick to tradition as prizes are won for certain paylines and full houses, most of the time the prize is a progressive jackpot.
