Xiaomi unveils Redmi K20 Pro and it has everything you need in a premium smartphone. It is the latest and the first smartphone that cost less than $400 and still powered by the Snapdragon 855. Xiaomi has focused exclusively on the budget category with Redmi series but with Redmi K20 Pro it is going to change the whole Redmi branding for good. It has a similar design to K20 but has high-end hardware specification that makes it even better.
It is the first most affordable smartphone with Snapdragon 855 chipset which will really improve the performance of the phone. The device has a huge 6.39-inch FHD display without any cutout at the front due to a retractable front camera. It features a 20MP sensor for the front camera. The camera pop up under a second, and you can also customize the activation sound. But the most spectacular feature of the device is its evocative gradient background which will make you fall in love with its look and feel.
It has a 48MP primary sensor for the rear camera, an 8MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and a 13MP wide-angle shooter. The Redmi K20 Pro is powered by a 4000mAh battery with 27W wired charging, which takes around an hour to charge from zero to 100 percent. For connectivity, it has a Wi-Fi, a USB-C charging and Bluetooth 5.0. The Redmi K20 Pro will go on sale from tomorrow in China and will be available in red, blue, and carbon fiber color options. The Redmi K20 will go on sale from June 6 in China and will start from $290.
This is not new to anyone in the industry, but the Trump Administration has intentionally tried to hurt Chinese manufacturers and their business by placing these and its subsidiaries on the country's Entity list. That means that Chinese manufacturers like Huawei can't import products from US-based companies. This restriction was also imposed on software-based products as well. The immediate side effects of this trade ban are that many new Huawei and Honor smartphones can't use the Google Mobile Services, which includes the Google Play Store and Google Play Services.
This trade ban starts to imply on the smartphones being launched in late 2019 and early 202 flagship devices. Which includes the Huawei Mate 30 series and the Huawei P40 series. However, Huawei has found some unique way around this trade ban, which involves tweaking an existing already-certified model and then re-releasing it to the market. That's what the company seems to be working on right now with the upcoming Huawei P30 Pro New Edition. The smartphone in question was promoted on Huawei's consumer page in Germany. It previously launched a P30 Lite new Edition with Google Mobile Services.
This removes the limitation on Huawei - that can't get GMS certification for new phone models and can use the certification for only the existing model. Huawei can re-release and rebrand their existing phones as many times as they like. This is a quite flexible probation for them, too. They can add a few upgrades such as RAM, storage, and different variants of the camera module without trying to ship a new SoC. They can even change the final design of the finished product to make it look brand new. Based on the existing SoC, the phone will have a HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC since that will allow the company to retain the original P30 Pro's GMS certification. And we may have to see some new upgrades in terms of more storage, RAM, and design options.
HMD has decided to redesign its whale series of smartphones and came up with three lines of phone - the C series which is the entry level series, the G series which is targeted towards budget-conscious audience, and the X series which is premium series. Despite X series being the most expensive one, it is still affordable compared to many other flagship smartphones with similar specs.
The latest smartphones introduced in the series are X10 and X20. If you are wondering what is the difference and which one you should buy, keep reading on and together we find the answer.Let's talk about the design first. To my surprise, there isn't any difference in the design of Nokia X10 and X20 and has come with the same display. Both devices share the same IPS LCD panel of 6.67-inches, full HD+ resolution with 1080x2400 pixels.
Both phones are powered by the Snapdragon 480 processor that comes with 5G connectivity. The processor might be the same but the memory and storage configurations aren't. The Nokia X10 is available in three variations - 6/64 GB, 4/128 GB, and 6/128 GB. Nokia X20 comes with 6/128 GB and 8/128GB configurations of RAM and internal storage. Both phones share the same 4,470mAh battery that supports 18W fast charging. The battery life isn't bad and can last for more than a day with a moderate usage.
Perhaps the biggest difference between these two cameras lies within the photography department. The Nokia X20 has a 48MP primary camera sensor while the Nokia X20 has a 64MP primary camera. Both phones use the Car Zeiss optics that allow these phones to deliver great picture quality. The front camera of Nokia X10 shoots selfie with 8MP camera while X20 comes with an amazing 32MP selfie camera sensor. X10 has 48MP+5MP+2MP+2MP camera specs whereas X20 features a quad camera system consisting of 64MP+5MP+2MP+2MP camera sensors. The Nokia X10 is available in Forest and Snow hues, while the Nokia X20 was launched in two different color variants: Midnight Sun and Nordic Blue.
Samsung bingo games are everywhere in 2017, depending on your particular model. Both tablet and phone owners of devices like Galaxy or Tab will find plenty of options, while the options for older models like Samsung Monte are limited. However, we cannot say that gambling hasn't improved quite a lot in the last several years. Currently, you can play a ton of various games across an even larger range of devices. A mobile brand that has been getting a lot of attention in the last several years from the gambling community is Samsung.
The Top 3 Bingo Apps for Samsung
Generally, if you are not sure if these games will work, you do not lose anything by checking them out, since all of them are completely free to download. Some of them will even give you money to get you started. It is amazing to try out a new bingo site with a welcome bonus since it lets you try out the games for free so you can decide if it is the right place for you. Just remember that finding reliable info about bingo gaming isn't very easy on the internet. You can access all the necessary information by clicking on this link for a detailed guide of bingo sites, just don't forget to read the content carefully. Here you can check out the top 3 apps for Samsung:
Advantages and Disadvantages of Gambling with a Samsung Device
Thanks to the Android marketplace that is provided by Google play, you can easily and quickly download a ton of mobile apps to use whenever you want. However, if you want to play real-money bingo games, you will have to download them from a third-party store like GetJar. Alternatively, you can just open the site of your preferred operator and use the mobile-friendly in-browser site.
But, even if the fact that Google Play does not allow real-money apps might be a slight disadvantage, there are a lot of pros of using a Samsung device to play bingo.
First of all, since most of the devices that are manufactured by this company use the latest Android software, you will be able to enjoy a ton of compatible games and websites to play on. Moreover, since the Samsung Note and Galaxy devices have quite the large screens, you will be able to enjoy high-definition games and crystal clear resolution.
Another excellent feature is that since the Samsung stylus comes with several devices, you will be able to enjoy precise controls. This is very good for mobile bingo since some people tend to accidentally hit the wrong buttons on the screen. The stylus is also a very helpful tool to use since it makes you feel like you are daubing off a real card with a pen and this makes the entire experience much more immersive.
But, it is far from the perfect device as there are several problems that you may encounter. For example, if you are playing bingo while you are not connected to a Wi-Fi network, you might drain your mobile data very fast, and if you are not careful, this might incur additional charges from your mobile provider.
A rarely occurring issue is that since Samsung devices use Android OS, your device might struggle to run some sites or games. However, this usually happens with older bingo websites. But those are the only disadvantages, so they seem quite small when we consider all of the pros.
Now About the Serious Part of Samsung Bingo!
Mobile gaming is the way forward when you want to play bingo on your mobile device. Almost every device is currently equipped with the newest gaming platforms and applications. There is no need to mention that a lot of gaming enthusiasts all over the world are in love with bingo. This is why people often worry whether they will be able to play bingo on their Samsung. It is absolutely possible, and you will fully enjoy the graphic experience. There certainly isn't a greater joy than playing bingo on your phone no matter where you are. All you have to do is log on to the bingo site of your favorite room and start a game.
According to topbingowebsites.co.uk mobile gambling is a crucial part of any manufacturer's marketing strategy, and Samsung is doing everything it can to make the most of it. The company promoted Galaxy S8 as well as some other new sets as perfect for bingo games. It has received different responses from the various parts of the world. As more and more people are becoming comfortable with bingo, adoption is very likely to increase manifold in the years to come.
In the last several years, a few developers have come up with many bingo apps for Samsung devices. They have been received quite well by gaming fans worldwide. However, there are countries in which bingo is not allowed, so people play free games. This fad will most likely increase with time. Bingo fans are rapidly increasing, and availability of mobile bingo will increase these numbers even more. We can safely assume that all phones that will launch soon will be loaded with exciting and new bingo apps.
There isn't a single reason for why mobile companies wouldn't take the opportunity to please their potential customers who love bingo. Samsung devices have been known to show great support for bingo apps. Many bingo players rely on Samsung tablets and phones when they do not have access to their computers. Bingo may be just a fun activity for you, but it can certainly become a great pastime. You can even use it to make new friends since bingo rooms allow simultaneous chatting.
Oppo just officially announced the date for the launch of Oppo Find X2. The phone will be launching at Mobile world congress 2020, a few days before the event will start officially. We also learned the Find X2 is going to feature a new Sony-developed camera sensor, which also houses Sony's latest 2x2 on-chip lens solution, enabling high-speed autofocus, high-resolution, high-sensitivity, and high dynamic range. Its predecessor was a great success in terms of sales figures and one of the most beautiful phones you can find in the market. But strangely, the company was silent about launching the Find X2.
Oppo happened to release the Reno series along with the Find X2 that kind of overshadowed the success of Find X. Everyone in the tech industry was thinking that the Oppo Reno series would take over the other lines. We have seen a few iterations of that device since the original phone was launched back in April of last year, and the Find series seemed to get lost somewhere in the background. But according to the Android Authority, a new Find phone is coming and it's already an interesting phone to invest in.
The device is arriving in the first quarter of this year. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, and new flagship Sony sensor. The main focus of the device is its screen quality. At the snapdragon tech summit last week, an oppo representative confirmed that a new snapdragon 865-powered device is coming and now we know that device is Oppo Find X2. This will enable the phone to get access to some of the brand new features like two-gigapixel processing, 25 percent faster performance, and much more.
The new sensors being uses used in the device can use every pixel as a phase detection pixel, meaning it can detect phase differences in both the X and Y directions. Also, it should be much easier for the focus to work on the edge of the frame, as older sensors were only able to use the center portion to calculate focus. The last year's model was one of the phone devices to hide the selfie-camera through a pop-up design, which was appreciated among the consumers.
Oppo has been in the smartphone industry for almost 10 years now. They have given us some of the most innovative and feature-rich phones in the market. Among the company's series of devices, the Find series has pushed many limits of creativity. It has some of the best flagship phones of the company as well. As in 2020, the company released a new OPPO Find X2 series this week.
OPPO released Find X in 2018 and joined the early pop-up cameras trend. But instead of giving only the pop-up mechanism to the front camera, the company also placed its dual rear camera system on this pop-up module. The smartphone had highly-advanced hardware to deliver really fast processing speed, and also replaced 3D face recognition technology with the fingerprint scanner. The Find X also brought Super VOOC flash charging technology, which eventually became the norm.
Now, it's time for Find X3 series, which is ready to set all-new benchmarks with its ground-breaking display quality and a powerhouse of loaded features giving a true flagship experience. Both the phones feature a 6.7-inch display and a whopping 120Hz refresh rate. With the ultra-fast Snapdragon 865 chipset and 5G network capability, the devices are well equipped to lead the charge into the future. The series has been ranked among smartphones offering the ‘Best Flagship Performance in April 2020' by AnTuTu.
The display made has already given its display panel A+ approval rating. The smartphone has also received eye comfort certification from TUV Rheinland as the phone cuts down the emission of harmful blue light to reduce to strain on your eyes. The phone has 65W super VOOC 2.0 technology that is equipped with ultra-fast charging. The standard model has 4,200mAh battery, whereas the pro model comes with a 4,260mAh battery.

The device is powered on 12GB RAM with two variants of internal storage - 256GB and 512GB.

The images were first posted by Evan Blass on Twitter. The image shows a rear side of the phone that has a quad-camera system that looks similar to iPhone 12 pro max, but it has a frame that protrudes, making it something unique and different than anyone has produced so far. The accommodate the bump created by the cameras, the back panel has a protrusion of its own that makes it looks like the cameras are getting out of the phone. This is not something you might like at the first glance but if you are looking for something different this is definitely an eye stopper.

You can purchase the mobile phone in black, blue, orange, and white colors. According to Evan Blast's tweet, the phone has a 6.7-inch display with a 1440p screen and a 120Hz display refresh rate.

Later last week, Sony Pictures firm got hacked and the hackers stole very sensitive data as an objection on Sony's latest movie "The Interview" that makes fun of the North Korean dictator Kim. Yesterday, the U.S. Pres. Obama said FBI confirmed that North Korea was behind the Hacking attack and the 9/11 attack threats made if Sony released the movie.
North Korea has ratcheted the absurdity level of the Sony hack up a notch by again pleading its innocence and even offering to help find the real perpetrators. North Korea is so anxious to help in the investigation that it used some particularly bellicose language in warning the US of "grave consequences" if it doesn't undertake a joint probe. While on the one hand denying culpability, the rogue nation's propaganda arm KCNA nevertheless went on in great detail about how the Interview "defamed its dignity," and said it would retaliate if the US refuses to work with it.
For now, the movie is still on hold, a decision that was criticized by President Obama and others. However, Sony said yesterday that it hadn't been cowed and may still release the Seth Rogan/James Franco film.
Whether you own an iPhone or an Android smartphone, both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store has enough games to confuse anyone who doesn't exactly know what to look for and where. To help the mobile gamer find the right kind of games that they want to play, we have prepared the following brief guide.
Know What You Want
What kind of games do you like? Everybody seems to like PUBG and Fortnite a lot, but maybe mobile FPS isn't the genre you enjoy as much as puzzle games. In that case, we would suggest The Room saga as they are some of the most enjoyable puzzle games across any platform.
Then there are others who might just be looking for some fun slots to pass the time and win some cash in the process. Slotozilla has this huge collection of the best, free slots games online, listed on their site. Rise of Spartans, Bingo Billions and An Evening with Holly Madison are some of our favorites, but the rest of the free titles are each worth a shot as well.
These are just examples of course, but the idea is to find a genre you actually enjoy, rather than just blindly downloading and trying out everything you see. You can do that too if you have the time of course!
Understand that Most Games aren't Worth Your Time
In spite of being populated with millions of apps, very few of them are actually good in both the App Store and the Play Store, but the Play Store certainly has more unregulated and garbage apps for sure!
For example, if you searched for PUBG, you will get the game as the first recommendation, but just below it, there will be a ton of other rip-off games and apps which only sound similar, but is far from the real deal.
Check the Reviews and Suggestions
There was a time when reviews could actually be trusted, but paid reviews have made the internet an unreliable source of information. Even then, when you are trying to download any game, look for the following signs to know if it's worth your time.
· It should preferably have at least 100,000 - 1,000,000 million downloads
· Check the aggregate review score, as that many reviews can't be faked
· If It's below 4.0, it's probably not going to be good
· When there's an "Editor's Choice" badge next to it, it is most likely one of the better games
· See what the 1 Star and 2 Star reviews are complaining about, and whether that has relevance to you
Look Beyond the Google Store
Not all good games and applications are found in the Google and Apple stores mind you, especially if you like gambling games involving real money. Additionally, the PS1 & 2, Dreamcast and other emulators are also not available to download from the official stores. So feel free to venture outside the realm of the Play Store and try out a few external apps as well.
You might even be surprised at the result, but be careful to ONLY download authentic apps that have reviews online to support their authenticity. As for Apple users, well, you are out of luck! Short of jailbreaking, your iPhone or iPad will not allow any external apps to be loaded on them.
The beauty of online casinos isn't just that you can play Roulette online for real money, but that you can get the thrill of sitting at a table in Macau or Las Vegas from the comfort of your own home, or on the move via the amazing live rooms. Real-life versions of games on online casinos are hugely popular, and you'll be spoilt for choice when you're looking for a game to play. But, what are the best games? Read on to find out.
Live Quantum Roulette
Quantum Roulette is a single-zero Roulette game with the thrill of an added multiplier. Whilst the wheel still features the standard European numbers, zero to 36, it also features Quantum Multipliers that can boost Straight Up positions randomly during each spin, enhancing the possible payouts on your numbered bets.
Only Straight Up bets and those inside the Neighbours, Complete, Half-Complete, Jeu 0, Orphelins, Jeu 7/9, and Finales en Plein positions can be enhanced by the Quantum Multipliers, although you can still place other regular Roulette bets, like red or back and odd or even.
A multiplier is randomly added to a Straight Up number before each spin. If the ball lands on that number your stake will be increased by the number shown, from 50x up to a maximum of 500x the original payout. You could walk away with some impressive winnings if the game goes in your favour!
Live Spread Bet Roulette
This action-packed variant of Roulette features two wheels instead of one - adding extra thrills to the classic brick-and-mortar game. A table top single-zero wheel and an extra golden wheel spin at the same time, but in different directions. However, when both wheels grind to a halt, the pocket the ball lands in on the table top wheel is added to the number in the golden wheel that's aligned with the winning number to work out the Spread Bet Roulette outcome.
The golden digitalised wheel has two spinning sections. The outer rim is a representation of the table top wheel, whilst the golden inner rim spins in the opposite direction. Although once they stop spinning the number the ball has landed on in the table top wheel aligns with the number on the gold rim to create the spread bet result.
There is also the ‘Green Win' rule, which means you could win double the amount placed on any spread bet positions when the balls rolls into the single-zero pocket.
Live Age of the Gods Roulette
Part of the huge Playtech franchise, this live room is aptly set in an ancient temple, with a stone Roulette table and appropriately branded Age of the Gods wheel.
This variant is basically played out the same way as regular Roulette, although the set, massive wheel and four progressive jackpots, catapult it into contention for one of the best live Roulette games you'll find online.
With every spin of the wheel, a small amount of the punter's wagers goes towards the four-tiers of progressive jackpots - Power, Extra Power, Super Power and Ultimate Power. These jackpots, which range from £100 to a whopping six-figure sum, can be won on any spin.
If you're lucky enough to trigger a jackpot winning spin, a screen will appear with 20 coins and you'll need to attempt to match three identical coins. The first three coins you match will be the jackpot that you win. Here's hoping it's the Ultimate Power!
