Are you the one who look for the specification of the camera when buying a new smartphone? There are a huge percentage of smartphones buyers who think about camera more than any other feature when making a purchase decision of a new smartphone and Xiaomi seems to know this. Xiamoi is developing four smartphones with 108MP camera sensor. Surprisingly, the camera sensor is developed by the Samsung but the Korean tech giant hasn't use this sensor itself for any of its smartphone. In fact, Samsung kept selling its next-generation technology to other smartphone brands instead of using itself. Recently, Xiamoi has revealed that its Mi brand will get the 108MP sensor for its rear camera.
XDA developers have used the reverse-engineering decompiliation tools only to discover that the MIUI Gallery app will now support viewing full resolution images from the 108MP sensor. However, as noted by XDA, the support to view full resolution image is only being added to four smartphones for the time being. These phones are codenamed as - tucana, draco, umi, and cmi. These will be first phones to feature such a high resolution camera as their primary camera.
The strange thing about a high-resolution camera phones is its inability to zoom into the picture when view in the gallery app. This changed with the 48MP camera sensors got into the paly and with it came the ability to zoom in the gallery app. Going by that logic, the cameras with 108MP resolution will also have 108MP full resolution view to support the high-resolution zoom in capability. In addition, XDA Developer said that they belive that Mi Mix 4 isn't among these four phones in development phase. Though earlier the phone was rumored to had a 108MP camera sensor with Snapdragon 855+. The four cameras will be added to Xiamoi's Mi range or Redmi lineup.
Microsoft's Windows operating system is the most used operating system in the world as of January 2019, according to the figures presented by Netmarketshare. Statcounter echoes this result, and in the data released last May 2019, the Windows operating system holds a 38.9% global market share, besting six other operating systems and showing a consistent increase in market shares worldwide.
Deemed at the top of the tier in their respective niches, it is inevitable that some Microsoft products and services, their Windows operating system, in particular, may encounter errors and issues. These errors range from minor system glitches to major operational failures. As they say, omnipresence does not necessarily correspond to superiority.
But users do not easily give up on windows and shift to another operating system. Windows, by far, offers an intuitive interface that no other operating system can match. It provides a seamless platform where a wide range of programs can run smoothly and efficiently. The benefits outmatch the inconveniences that users remain loyal to Windows operating system.
Here are the four most common errors users encounter in the course of using the Windows operating system.
The Blue Screen of Death
Aptly named because the screen turns blue when this error is displayed, the Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) is the most well-known Windows error of all. Popularly referred to as the Blue Screen or Stop Error, it happens when Windows encounters a problem it cannot fix. To avoid further damage to its operating system, Windows shuts down.
Blue Screen is an infamous Windows error. Users have nothing to worry about if it happens once. There will be instances when Windows will encounter a weird glitch, and then just hit a blue screen. The odd glitch never happens again, and this is fine.
Blue Screen of Death is highly concerning and fatal when it occurs repeatedly. It signifies that there are severe hardware or software problems on your personal computer. This type of error leads to data loss, drive corruption, and critical damages to system files and hardware. To protect itself, Windows automatically shifts to the blue screen and prevent further harm to its software and hardware.
The Dynamic Link Library (DLL) is a record of shared files that many programs use to perform specific tasks and activities. A DLL is built into Windows so that every type of software does not need to create its own way of performing a task or activity. For instance, whenever you print a test page, easily click Print Test Page, and even if you are using different printer software, the default Windows method will be launched to perform this task.
There are cases when a DLL error appears after launching a program. It usually goes like this: The program can't start because DEF.dll is missing from your computer. You can try to reinstall the software or program to fix the problem. When you see this error message, do not panic. Also, do not rush to download the specific missing DLL file even if this is the general rule of thumb. It usually leads to more problems because some questionable sites can slip malware into the DLL files.
Api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll missing error is a common DLL error. It occurs when your Windows is missing the Visual C + + for Visual Studio 2015. Fortunately, Api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll missing error is very easy to fix. Here are easy steps to fix it.
Windows Update Error 0x80070057
The windows update error 0x80070057 is an error code famous among experienced Windows operating system users. It began in Windows XP and has continuously appeared in all succeeding windows operating systems. This error happens when the Windows Update repeatedly encounters problems, or when Windows Update altogether declines to install new updates.
Windows Update is always highly anticipated, and a lot clamors to be the first to install and use the new features. Negative feedbacks arise when errors occur. Luckily, a lot of simple and easy to follow procedures are offered to fix this problem.
Security Certificate Errors
Security Certificates keep you safely and securely connected to various websites. Norton or GoDaddy are examples of third-party Certificate Authorities that issue valid certificates to website owners that use secure HTTPS connections.
Your browser has a list of trusted legal Certificate Authorities. Every time you visit a secure website, its certificates should match the one your browser expects. Otherwise, a security certificate error will appear and tell you that the website may not be safe.
There are instances when this error is legitimate. It may be that the owner did not renew the certificate and the expiry prompted your browser that something is off. Perhaps an attacker jeopardized the website, and the certificates do not match so your browser prompts you it is not safe in that site. Caution should always be employed when dealing with visiting these sites.
You will encounter various hardware and software errors while using the Windows Operating System. They are annoying and frustrating, but fixes are available to solve these errors. Knowing that these errors can occur any time, always ensure that you have backed up your files. Stay secure and stay ten steps ahead of these errors.
Samsung seems to have learned from the mistakes that they had made with the Galaxy note 5, because the Note 6 is all set to see quite a few major changes in its design element. Let's check out the four major changes that the data revealed by GSM Helpdesk seems to indicate.
After introducing the Note Edge in 2014, Samsung had apparently dropped the idea of building their Note devices with curved displays. However, if the latest leak is to be believed then it is highly likely that the South Korean company may choose to build the Note 6 with an Edge display. The added functionalities that Samsung brings in with their Edge panels are something that will definitely make the Note 6 not just distinctly better to look at, but better to use as well.
6GB of RAM
That is right; the next Note smartphone will allegedly be powered by 6 gigs of RAM. While some may consider this to be overkill, many are of the opinion that it might help to make the RAM-hungry TouchWiz interface much smoother.
4,000 mAh battery
The Note 5 sported a 3,000 mAh battery and while that did give users a decent battery life, this year Samsung is taking it quite a few notches higher by blessing the Note 6 with a 4,000 mAh battery. Although the battery will still most likely be non-user replaceable, the 1,000 mAh increase in power will surely make it more appealing.
A larger display
Samsung has stayed with the 5.7" form factor for a while now, but rumors suggest that it is about to change. Before you start worrying about whether or not this decision will make the device too bulky, consider the fact that the reported 5.8" display will be housed by the next Note without getting any bigger than its predecessor.
We are not yet sure as to the authenticity of these rumors, but rumors have been exceptionally accurate recently, especially when they are about Samsung smartphones. We will just have to wait and see what changes Samsung actually brings in with the Note 6 and also, whether or not those changes are enough to compete with the upcoming iPhone 7 Pro.

After months of speculations and leaks, the S8 and S8+ were finally launched last month. However, except for pre-ordering it and waiting to get your hands on one, there wasn't really much that you could do at that point. However, all that waiting comes to an end today as the S8 and S8+ are now officially on sale across the USA, Canada, South Korea and Puerto Rico. Of course some of the customers in other countries have already started to receive their package as well, but they still can't go and buy one off the shelf yet.
All remaining countries where Samsung has not yet started to sell the device (officially), should see the two flagships smartphones arrive at the stores in the coming week or the next; that is by the end of April or the first week of March, you should be able to buy a S8 smartphone irrespective of your location, unless Samsung has no presence in your nation of course.
Would you be buying the Galaxy S8 or S8+? Have you already pre-ordered it? Would you rather wait for the Galaxy Note 8 which will come out later in the year? Let us know the answers in the comments section below.

If you thought that the recently launched Galaxy A7 (2018) with three rear cameras wasn't quite enough, rumor has it that Samsung is planning to launch the Galaxy A9 (2018) with four rear cameras on October 11, 2018. The event on October 11 has been highlighted by Samsung with a subtle hint to this fact, which states "4x fun." It could also mean something else, but at this point, all rumors seem to be pointing towards the fact that the smartphone will have four rear cameras. If this does turn out to be true, Samsung will be the first manufacturer in the world to have a quad rear camera smartphone. The camera specs are expected to be 24-mp primary sensor + 8-mp wide angle sensor + 5-mp and 10-mp zooming lenses.
It would actually be quite interesting to see if the extra cameras are able to beat the dual camera modules on the flagship range handsets like the ones on the Galaxy Note 9 and the S9 Plus. If the specifications are true though, I would be surprised if the upcoming Galaxy A9 (2018) with four cameras doesn't beat the current-gen flagship handsets.
Although Samsung cannot exactly be blamed for copying Apple bluntly like so many other manufacturers do, there is little doubt about the fact that the Korean giant has started copying some of its biggest competitor's marketing strategies in regard to the Galaxy S line-up. In 2018, we saw Samsung clearly making the Galaxy S9 a inferior device to the Galaxy S9+ in the camera department by providing it with just one camera and reserving the dual camera module for the more expensive S9+. In 2019, Samsung would be releasing four variants of the Galaxy S10, similar to what Apple did with the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR this year.
As per reports from reliable sources, the devices can be classified as follows.
· SM-G973x - The standard S10 (in the same tire as the iPhone XS)
· SM-G975x - The S10+ (in the same tire as the iPhone XS Max)
· SM-G970x - A low-end S10 (in the same tire as the iPhone XR)
· A mythical S10 elite that has not been confirmed by anybody beyond speculation at this point
The rest of the three handsets have already received certifications in China and now the SM-G975x and the SM-G975F has also received their certifications in Russia. As per rumors, the S10+ will sport two front cameras and three rear cameras, a 1440 × 3040, 6.4" display and an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner inside the display.
A Virtual Private Network or VPN is typically a service to hide the original IP address of the user from hackers, trackers and everyone else, including the ISP itself. It makes for a more secure and private browsing experience that cannot be traced back to the user. Taking a closer look at the reasons why everyone should start using a VPN is often an eye-opener, so here are four of them everyone should know.
As mentioned earlier, a virtual private network protects the user from being traced by anybody on the Internet, as it hides the original IP address of the user. This means that no one, including your internet service provider, can possibly see your browsing history, as you will essentially become untraceable and invisible to everyone on the Internet.
Geoblocking is a concept that allows websites and search engines to filter content, based on a user's geographical location. This is the reason why you can't watch certain Netflix US shows from most of the Asian countries, as Netflix filters out some of the content based on the region. Google will do the same to your search result pages, so you will never be able to see unrestricted results.
If you want to access blocked sites, shows and SERPs, VPN Service by VeePN will let you do exactly that. As you will be able to set your IP address to any location in the world, it will essentially open up your computer to every site, search engine result page, and streaming service in the whole world.
Use Public Wi-Fi Safely
You probably already know that it isn't safe to use public Wi-Fi in a café, or anywhere else for that matter. But did you know that a VPN can actually protect you against hacking attacks, a common threat for public Wi-Fi users? Well, it can really do that, so if you love using Wi-Fi in your favorite café, you really need to start using a VPN!
Download Torrents Anonymously
Do we recommend downloading pirated material with a P2P torrent client? Absolutely not! Can you protect your identity with the help of a VPN if you do download torrents? You certainly can.
While a VPN is rapidly becoming a necessity because of its wide implementation possibilities, there are a few things that even the best VPNs can't help you with, and they should be noted as well.
• They are not antivirus replacements, and you will need a good antivirus to protect your computer on the Internet
• You will still have to pay for Netflix, Prime Video and other streaming services to access the content
• A VPN service provider will mask your IP, but you will still need your ISP for the Internet connection
