OnePlus 7T Pro leaked images give a clearer look at the phone

OnePlus 7T Pro leaked images give a clearer look at the phone

A bunch of pictures, allegedly of the OnePlus 7T Pro have made an appearance on the Internet again. However, unlike the first leak, which only allowed us a peek at the front of the purported phone, the new pictures also give us a look at the back of the phone. Although the phone in pictures is still covered in a case, to protect its design, just like the previous leak.
CreditsOnePlus 7T Pro image leak will have you hoping there’s more than meets the eyeUnsurprisingly, the fresh pictures indicate that there isn’t much changed when it comes to the design of the upcoming OnePlus 7 series successors. The back of the phone in the images feature a triple camera setup with a slight gap between the second and third module, followed by an LED flash. Through a cutout on the case, we can also notice the Nebula Blue colour that debuted with the OnePlus 7 series just two months back.These fresh set of pictures corroborate the earlier leak with a wider speaker grill than the OnePlus 7 Pro and the only difference we can make out from these leaks.Having said that, OnePlus ‘T’ series of phones mostly focus on internal hardware upgrades than cosmetics, which is why we expect the OnePlus 7T series to make a jump to Snapdragon 855 Plus and even upgraded cameras. We also hope that the regular model gets a higher refresh rate screen but we wouldn’t be surprised if the waterdrop notch stays.We are still around three months away from the expected launch of the OnePlus 7T series if OnePlus doesn’t alter its launch cycle.Source

Realme 5 confirmed to be company’s 64MP quad-camera flagship smartphone

Realme 5 confirmed to be company’s 64MP quad-camera flagship smartphone

Realme has been teasing the existence of its upcoming flagship since a while. Today, we get official confirmation that it will be called the Realme 5.Realme has a fairly simple naming scheme with the models having just a cardinal number acting as the main flagship, followed by a Pro and a Lite variant later. This makes the Realme 3 from March the company’s primary flagship, with the Realme 3 Pro being an incremental update and the Realme X being the sidekick.The number “4” is often considered as unlucky in Chinese culture and could be the reason why Realme is directly jumping to 5. Even OnePlus famously skipped 4 and straight up moved to 5.
Adding more substance to this thought, Realme’s CEO Madhav Sheth has also changed his Twitter name to “Madhav ‘5’Quad” confirming the name and the inclusion of a quad camera setup. Madhav is known to do this before the launch of each major upcoming Realme phone. For most of the last month, his name was set to “Madhav X” on Twitter.
 Realme 5: Everything we know so far 
The upcoming Realme flagship is confirmed to have a quad-camera setup with a 64MP primary camera, and is likely to be the world’s first smartphone to offer that. In fact, Realme has scheduled an event for August 8 in Delhi to talk more about this camera package and how it was put together. We expect this to be a primary + ultrawide + telephoto + depth sensor combination, bringing a lot of smartphone photography versatility.Realme has also long been talking about a higher-end phone with a flagship-grade chipset, and the Realme 5 might just be the one to bring the Snapdragon 855 or the 855 Plus to their lineup. Historically, all Realme phones have been in the sub 20k segment but the Realme 5 is likely to break that trend.

Madhav Sheth had also confirmed that the upcoming flagship will make its global debut in India before hitting other markets, and speculations suggest that the Realme 5 will come sometime in September, right in time for Diwali festivities.Realme has also scheduled an event for August 15 in China where more details about the Realme 5 could surface.

Revolt RV400 electric bike to launch in India on August 28

Revolt RV400 electric bike to launch in India on August 28

The RV400 by Revolt Intellicorp is one of the most anticipated 2-wheelers in a long while. It seems like that wait is about to get over soon as a final launch date has been set – August 28.This final launch date comes via Financial Express and the event is also expected to elaborate on specifics such as the price, final range, internal specifications, charging network and other relevant information which the consumers have been waiting for.Back in June, Revolt had a small unveiling event where the RV400 was shown, and some of the features were showcased. However, a lot of questions were left unanswered. The all-electric bike was open to pre-orders where patrons in Delhi and Pune could reserve one for just INR 1,000 via Amazon India. Some 2,500 people already pledged their interest in the EV which should begin shipping later this year.
So what does India’s first AI-enabled electric motorcycle offer?
The Revolt RV400 isn’t just on its way to being India’s first electric bike, but will also come with features and related services that are going to put it ahead of the competition. It has an ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India) certified range of 156 km on a single charge. It runs on lithium-ion batteries which are subject to government subsidies that should bring the bike’s price down. Since the original unveiling, the GST on electric vehicles has been brought down to 5% from 12%.The Revolt RV400 has a top speed of 85 km/h in the Sport mode. There will also be an Eco and a City mode for better range. These settings can be toggled from within the app, which also has options to order batteries and change the exhaust sound.

Along with that, the battery can also be detached and taken to any regular charging point, with the supplied charger taking about 4 hours to charge at an output of 15 Amps.During the last presentation, Revolt’s CEO Rahul Sharma mentioned “We haven’t even unveiled 25% of what the RV400 can do!”, and ended the event with a teaser that pointed at voice control for the bike.Even with such little information available around the bike, it is already shaping up to be one of the most exciting vehicles to hit the Indian roads in near future.

You can now get Google Assistant to read and reply to third-party messaging apps

Voice assistants are constantly getting new talents added to their repertoire by the companies that develop them in the hope that they will dominant the field and reach ubiquity ahead of their rivals.As discovered by AndroidPolice, Google Assistant has begun to expand one of its existing features significantly, allowing the virtual assistant to read aloud messages from apps outside of the default Android SMS messages app, as well as reply to these messages via speech-to-text.For the millions of Android users relying on apps such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, Slack, or Discord rather than the default application, this makes the feature significantly more useful.
How to use Google Assistant to control your smart home9 things Google Assistant can do that you may not know aboutWhen asking Google Assistant to “read my messages”, (assuming you’ve already allowed it to access your notifications), it now reads aloud the latest messages you’ve received and tells you on which app you’ve received them in.From there, you can reply directly by voice or typing, and your response will be sent from within the app the message was received, marking it as ‘read’ in the process. While this feature currently doesn’t support any media outside of text – it won’t play back any audio messages or videos that are sent, for instance – this could well be adopted in some capacity in the future.The feature hasn’t been officially announced by Google and not everyone has the functionality yet, so we can assume it’s in the process of being rolled out and should be available to all users in coming months.

Best cloud logging services of 2019

Best cloud logging services of 2019

Managing log events can be a challenge for a number of reasons, not least the sheer volume of datapoints, the number of applications involved, and reverse engineering identified errors to their source for correction.Cloud logging services aim to do this, by providing an interface through which your server logs are routed so that they can be identified, sorted, and highlighted as required.By using the cloud it means that monitoring remains independent of your network, meaning it would be slowed by any errors or failures.

10 Best Air Purifiers you can buy in India right now

10 Best Air Purifiers you can buy in India right now

With the pollution level rising at an alarming rate, air purifiers have emerged as one of the saviours to fight rising complications due to air pollution. Seeing the rise in demand, most home appliance brands have started manufacturing air purifiers which can cost you a premium. According to WHO, 4.3 million people die from being exposed to household air pollution. Every year, the risk of a rise in health-related issues increases especially during the festival of Diwali, acting as the major contributor to the growing PM levels. PM (Particulate matter) 2.5 is the term used to define the mixture of fine particles including dust, dirt, smoke and liquid having a diameter less than 2.5 microns so naturally, it cannot be seen through naked eyes.While outdoor air pollution leads to serious health problems, indoor pollution is no less harmful than that.

Detroit: Become HumanQuantum Dream has a reputation for narrative-heavy games with weighty choices, and Detroit: Become Human is no less ambitious than you’d expect.

Borderlands: The Handsome Jack CollectionWith Borderlands 3 right around the corner, there’s no better time to jump back into the franchise with Borderalnds: The Handsome Jack Collection. It’s a compilation of two games – The Presequel and Borderlands 2 – and sets the stage for the third entry in the series that’s coming later this year.On top of both base games, you’ll get all the DLC released for Borderlands 2, plus exclusive skins and challenge arenas for The Presequel.Considering it’s absolutely free right now, it’s a darn good deal.Sonic ManiaFor years, all gamers wanted was a basic remake of the original Sonic The Hedgehog games. They didn’t want fancy graphics, or boatloads of new characters, just the game they grew up with on modern consoles. Sonic Mania is the direct result of fans’ desires. That said, Sonic Mania is really both a compilation of original levels and a spiritual successor to the Sega Genesis games – you’ll play as either Sonic, Tails or Knuckles and cruise through levels at high velocity. At the end of zones, you’ll take on Dr. Robotnik in one of his mechanical monstrosities, and do your best to clear bonus stages in between missions. If you need a giant fix of nostalgia, Sonic Mania can dish it out in spades.

OvercookedOvercooked is undoubtedly one of the best couch co-op party games to come out in the past few years. One to four players control cooks in a kitchen, delegating responsibilities as they try to cook and serve increasingly complex orders in a variety of bizarre restaurants. It’s quintessential co-op, though as the pace and stress ratchets up, you begin to understand how Gordon Ramsey came to rely on such a profanity-filled vocabulary to get things functioning in the kitchen.The beauty of Overcooked is that it leaves all organisation to the players; who’s frying the steaks? Who’s chopping the veg? Why is the onion soup on fire?!? Who the HELL is doing the washing up because we’ve run out of plates to serve food on? If you can’t handle the heat then get out of the kitchen – or burn it to the ground in this case. What Remains of Edith FinchIt’s hard to describe What Remains of Edith Finch without spoiling it. It’s one of those games that needs to be experienced first-hand, and luckily Sony is letting you for free. The narrative driven title sees you investigating the family home of the Finch’s in an effort to work out why you’re the last one left and what happened to the other members of the family. It’s peculiar and wonderful, and arguably one of the best games to come out in 2017.

Conan ExilesTake a sprinkling of Schwarzenegger, a dash of Minecraft and a helping of Ark: Survival Evolved, and you’ll end up with something like Conan Exiles. A persistent online multiplayer game, you’ll be cast into the brutal realm of the world’s most famous barbarian with no belongings (literally nothing – not even a loincloth to hide your modesty) and tasked to simply survive and thrive. It launched to a bit of a mixed response, but has since built a bit of a cult following – in no small part, no doubt, due to the fact that it’s the only game with a penis size slider as part of its create-a-character set up…The SurgeImagine Dark Souls in space, and that’s what you’ve got with The Surge. It’s a bit of a corridor slog, squandering its initial mysterious promise, but its combat is meaty and well presented. If you can’t face Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, but still want something akin to a SoulsBorne fix, The Surge will plug that gap.

NSW commuters now get full Opal benefits when using contactless payment

NSW commuters now get full Opal benefits when using contactless payment

When Transport for NSW first introduced the ability to pay for your transit fare using your credit card or phone’s contactless payment functionality, the feature was rather limited.Initially, it was only available for light rail and ferries, and you wouldn’t receive any of the rewards that you normally would when using your Opal. Now, much of this has changed.As Transport for NSW has officially partnered with CommBank, passengers paying for their train, light rail, Sydney Metro or ferry fare using contactless payment will receive the same benefits as if they used an Opal card.This includes off-peak pricing, the transfer discount applied when changing between modes of transport, the half price fares after travelling eight times in a week, and the caps applied to daily, weekly and Sunday trips.
NSW commuters can now use Samsung Pay on Opal terminals while lockedAlthough the partnership is with CommBank, this is simply due to the company’s key role in Australian contactless payment infrastructure and any format is compatible – including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and smartphone systems.There are some caveats however – the system only applies to adult fares, so senior and concession commuters will want to keep using their physical Opal cards for the time being. While buses don’t yet have access to the feature, they’ll be getting it “soon”, according to the Transport NSW post, so we can expect to all-but ditch our Opal cards by the end of the year.
Uber’s flying taxi will slash your commute by 2023Uber joins the party
Another win for Sydney commuters comes from the likes of Uber, which has started to roll out a new feature for its ride-sharing app that integrates public transport information as an alternative to get to their destination.Sydney is the first city in the Southern Hemisphere to see the feature added, and only the fourth in the world following Denver, Boston and London.When users select their destination using the company’s app, the “Public Transport” option will appear beneath the regular host of Uber offerings, and once selected, it will show real-time transit alternatives including bus, train, ferry and light rail.Included in the details on offer are the pricing of the whole trip, how long it will take, as well as directions to walk to the nearest station, bus stop or ferry terminal.Uber is using Australia as a testing ground for a few of its services – passenger drone service Uber Air will be trialled in Melbourne in 2020, and the company has launched ScUber in Queensland to take passengers on a tour of the Great Barrier Reef.

New laws could force Netflix and YouTube to create more Australian content

New laws could force Netflix and YouTube to create more Australian content

Streaming services make a hefty number of dollarydoos in Australia, with Netflix boasting 11 million Aussie subscribers according to the latest market research from Roy Morgan. However, despite these impressive numbers, the US giant has only poured a small amount of that money back into the local film and television industry, producing only one Australian Netflix Original series (Tidelands, pictured) since its launch in 2015.
Netflix vs Stan, Foxtel Now and Amazon Prime: Australian streaming services comparedNetflix to be more selective with big-budget showsWhat’s new on Netflix Australia this monthThat could all change following a new report from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), which sheds light on the practices of digital platforms and how they conduct business in Australia.The report, released by treasurer Josh Frydenberg and communications minister Paul Fletcher, puts forward a total of 23 recommendations for increased regulation of digital platforms. Following the inquiry, Fletcher appeared on ABC’s Insiders program to discuss local content rules that weren’t directly addressed in the report, with the communications minister recommending that digital platforms like Netflix, Google and Facebook be held to the same laws and regulations that other media companies are forced to abide by. 
“Clearly, one of the questions is: obligations on free-to-air television networks and on subscription TV for Australian content, does it stack up for Netflix not to have such obligations, those are questions we’ll consider,” said Fletcher, further stating that the ACCC will “be interested in the feedback of stakeholders.”He continued, “as this report analyses, there’s a set of obligations on one set of businesses, serving Australians and providing content, namely traditional free-to-air and pay TV operators. There is no such obligation on Netflix, or indeed on Stan, or others which are also providing content to Australians.””It raises significant policy questions, those are precisely the kinds of questions that this comprehensive ACCC report [examines],” said Fletcher.[via The Guardian]
