Realme X to come with in-display fingerprint sensor, VOOC 3.0 fast charging

first_imgIn the days leading up to the launch of the Realme X in China, the company is leaving no room for anyone else to leak out key features about the flagship. Instead, Realme has decided to reveal interesting features about the device through some official posters. Earlier this week, we saw posters confirming that the Realme X will sport an AMOLED display and a 48MP Sony IMX586 camera. Now, a couple of new posters confirm that the Realme X will come with an in-display fingerprint sensor and VOOC 3.0 fast charging support.So far, it was speculated that the Realme X will come with a fingerprint sensor under the display considering this is a flagship phone that sports an AMOLED display and renders have showed no signs of a rear-mounted sensor. Realme has not only confirmed an in-display fingerprint sensor for the Realme X, but the company has also revealed on Weibo that the sensor is powered by a DSP acceleration technology to make it faster and reliable even under direct light.A separate poster confirms that the Realme X will support VOOC 3.0 flash charging, which is not surprising considering the Realme 3 Pro also supports Oppo’s fast charging solution. Not only can you expect fast charging speeds, but the new version will also fast charge the device while playing games. Perhaps the only things left for Realme to reveal is the processor and pricing, which the company might hold off until May 15. On the day of launch, we expect the company to reveal that the Realme X is powered by a Snapdragon 730 SoC paired with 8GB of RAM. We also expect the device to ship with Android Pie with ColorOS 6 on top. The display of the Realme X is said to be 6.5 inches with FHD+ resolution an no notch. Instead, the flagship will be the company’s first to sport a pop-up selfie camera.advertisementThe Realme X is not going to be exclusive to China as the company’s India CEO Madhav Sheth has confirmed that the flagship will launch in India soon. As for the pricing, we speculate that the Realme X could cost between Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000. It will be interesting to see what more Realme has to reveal in the days leading up to the Realme X launch.ALSO READ | Realme X will come with 48MP Sony IMX586 camera, Nightscape modeALSO READ | Realme X, Realme X Youth Edition full specs listed on TENAA ahead of launchlast_img read more

Rock Legends Attend Right To Rock Benefit

first_imgLast week, non-profit organization, Little Kids Rock, hosted its fifth annual Right to Rock benefit to ensure the gift of musical education remains in America’s most economically challenged public schools.For her continued dedication to music education in the classroom Darlene Love was presented with the Big Man of the Year Award during the Right to Rock BenefiThe event generated over $850,000 in donations, which will help fund music lessons and instruments for 15,000 additional children in disadvantaged public schools across the United States. Darlene Love, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and star of “Twenty Feet from Stardom,” was honored for her tireless effort to help keep music in the classroom with the organization’s “Big Man of the Year” award.In addition to the funds raised, Little Kids Rock founder, Dave Wish, announced a $4.5 million initiative to bring music education to 60,000 kids in 600 schools in New York City. Details of this program to be announced.“At the end of the day, when the musical performances are over and the crowd has left, the children are what remain,” said Wish. “We are dedicated to providing a creative outlet for students, one that allows them to become self-confident, to transform their lives. Music is that outlet.”The night began with opening remarks from Jake Clemons, whose late uncle, Clarence Clemons, was the inspiration behind the “Big Man of the Year Award.” Love was joined onstage by student musicians from Franklin L. Williams Middle School in Jersey City, N.J as well as friends and fellow musicians Elvis Costello, Bill Medley, Brian Wilson, Paul Shaffer and Steven Van Zandt.Jim Allen, chairman of Hard Rock International, was also honored for his continued support of the organization. Hard Rock International sponsored the 2012 Right to Rock Benefit, which honored Steve Van Zandt as the “Big Man of the Year.” Van Zandt, an honorary board member of Little Kids Rock and avid supporter of music education through his Rock and Roll Forever Foundation, was the musical director of this year’s production.And since it’s all about the kids, Little Kids Rock student Ashley Nunez, a fourth-grader at P.S. 98 in Manhattan, took the stage with fellow classmates to perform an original song they wrote about Hurricane Sandy, “She’s Got a Lot Going On.”“Since joining the program three years ago, Little Kids Rock has been a haven for me,” said Nunez. “Writing and playing music has allowed me to express how I feel, take more risks, and know that it is ok to make mistakes.”Fellow student musicians from Jersey City performed a mash-up of some of today’s most popular songs by chart toppers like Bruno Mars and Alicia Keys.With Steven Van Zandt on lead guitar, Brian Wilson kicked off the star-studded musical lineup with “California Girls,” and was joined by the night’s “Big Man” for “God Only Knows” and “Don’t Worry Baby.” Elvis Costello brought the house down with “Not too Young to Get Married.”Love was in the air when the night’s honoree teamed up with Bill Medley on a rousing duet performance of “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling,” which brought the crowd to its feet to dance and sing along.The night concluded with an epic performance by Love, who was joined onstage by many of the evening’s performers, including special guest Paul Shaffer, to sing her classic, “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).”The evening’s success was due in large part to the dedication and support of advisory board members Maureen Van Zandt and Steven Van Zandt, Little Kids Rock’s dinner committee (the “Right to Rock Roadies”), and the volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the event such a success. Presenting sponsor, Beats by Dre, as well as lead sponsor, Hard Rock International, also helped to make the benefit possible.Source:PR Newswirelast_img read more

NBCs hope for a hit with Million Second Quiz fails

NBC’s hope for a hit with ‘Million Second Quiz’ fails NEW YORK, N.Y. – NBC’s game show “The Million Second Quiz” is running out of time to make an impact.The network hoped to make a big splash in the two weeks before the start of the traditional TV season with the game show hosted by Ryan Seacrest. But “The Million Second Quiz” is taking a critical lashing and viewers are staying away.The show debuted last Monday to an audience of just over 6.5 million viewers, and proceeded to get a smaller crowd watching it each succeeding night last week, the Nielsen company said. It dropped to 5.8 million on Tuesday, 5.2 million on Wednesday, 4.2 million on Thursday, 4 million on Friday and 2.9 million on Saturday. To be fair, Fridays and Saturdays are the least-watched TV night of the week. Contestants answer general knowledge questions. Sept. 19 to win $2 million grandThe show rebounded to 3.7 million this Monday, but that’s only a little more than half what it had Monday a week ago.Although the format sounds simple — contestants answer general-knowledge questions in competition for a grand prize of $2 million — critics have called the show confusing, saying producers jumped into the game with little explanation of what is going on and why it was important.“Let’s just find the person who said ‘yes’ to this and do something evil to them — like make them watch it,” wrote Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter.Catriona Wightman of Digital Spy wrote that “it took me ages” to figure out what was happening.“Is there any need for things to be this complex?” Wightman asked. “I suppose NBC couldn’t devote a full hour every night for 10 days to mere questions and answers, but perhaps something a little simpler could still have been exciting enough.”NBC certainly isn’t bragging about the ratings, but points out that the game improved the ratings that NBC had gotten in some of the individual time slots for most of the summer. The network, which built a huge set for the game on the rooftop of a Manhattan building and hired Seacrest, had hoped the game could appear occasionally through the year as a special event. It hasn’t said whether “The Million Second Quiz” has a lift after it ends this week.With new fall programming still largely on the horizon, football dominated the television schedule this past week.Largely due to its Sunday night football game, NBC won the week with an average of 7 million viewers in prime time. CBS had 6.7 million, ABC had 4.5 million, Fox had 4 million, Univision had 3.1 million, ION Television had 1.3 million, Telemundo had 1 million and the CW had 870,000ESPN was the most popular cable network of the week, averaging 4.1 million viewers. USA had 2.6 million, The Disney Channel had 2.3 million, History had 1.8 million and Fox News Channel had 1.7 million.NBC’s “Nightly News” topped the evening newscasts with an average of 8.3 million viewers. ABC’s “World News” was second with 7.9 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 6.1 million viewers.For the week of Sept 9-15, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: NFL Football: San Francisco at Seattle, NBC, 20.54 million; “Football Rain Delay,” NBC, 17.84 million; NFL Football: Philadelphia at Washington, ESPN, 16.52 million; “Sunday Night NFL Pre-Kick,” NBC, 15.22 million; “60 Minutes,” CBS, 12.45 million; “Football Night in America,” NBC, 11.31 million; NFL Football: Houston at San Diego, ESPN, 10.95 million; “America’s Got Talent” (Wednesday), NBC, 10.08 million; “Under the Dome,” CBS, 9.72 million; “America’s Got Talent” (Tuesday), NBC, 9.24 million.___ABC and ESPN are owned by The Walt Disney Co.

Clinic Founder Linked to Baseball Steroids Scandal Surrenders to

Clinic Founder Linked to Baseball Steroids Scandal Surrenders to

Anthony Bosch (center) turned himself in to DEA agents Tuesday.Before sunrise Tuesday, Drug Enforcement Administration agents arrested several men involved with the now-defunct Biogenesis lab, an anti-aging/wellness business that was at the heart of a Major League Baseball performance-enhancing drugs scandal last year. Around the same time, the company’s founder, Anthony Bosch, and his attorney drove to a DEA office in Florida to surrender.According to Special Agent in Charge Mark R. Trouville, Bosch was one of 10 people arrested Tuesday as part of a two-year Operation Strikeout investigation. U.S. Attorney Wilfredo Ferrer said at a news conference Tuesday that seven arrests were related to Biogenesis, and three were arrested as part of a separate indictment regarding the party drug Molly.Federal sources said Bosch, 50, had reached a deal to plead guilty to conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids between October 2008 and December 2012. He was led in a DEA vehicle to the U.S. District Courthouse in Miami after being processed in Fort Lauderdale. He faces up to a maximum 10 years in prison.Among those arrested Tuesday was Yuri Sucart, the cousin of Alex Rodriguez, the baseball player who was suspended for an entire season for using PEDs. Federal agents described Sucart as one of Bosch’s recruiters. Sucart, 52, was banned from the New York Yankees clubhouse, charter flights, bus and other team-related activities by Major League Baseball in 2009 after Rodriguez admitted he used steroids while with Texas from 2000 to 2003, saying Sucart obtained and injected the drugs for him.Carlos Acevedo (Bosch’s business partner), Jorge (Oggi) Velasquez, Juan Nunez, Christopher Engroba and former University of Miami pitching coach Lazer Collazo also were arrested along with Bosch.Sources told ESPN’s Outside the Lines that MLB players and other pro athletes are not the focus of the federal investigation; rather, authorities focused solely on potential illegal activities involving Bosch and other associates.Trouville, the special agent in charge of the case, said Bosch and his associates distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors as well as professionals. Trouville said Bosch isn’t a doctor; “he’s a drug dealer.”Bosch, a self-described biochemist, has been at the head of the largest performance-enhancing drug scandal in American sports history. To date, nearly 20 professional players connected to his clinic have been suspended by Major League Baseball after either testing positive or having their doping regimens uncovered in clinic records.The aggressive, lengthy MLB investigation ended in a record number of suspensions, but at times proved tumultuous and costly. Baseball officials threw tens of thousands of dollars at potential witnesses in seeking to nail their case, at one point paying an ex-convict $150,000 for clinic documents — some of which a state health official said it should have known were stolen. Baseball’s Department of Investigations was recently overhauled in the wake of the Biogenesis investigation. read more

Air Force Fighter Pilot Shortage Worsens Leaders Say

Air Force Fighter Pilot Shortage Worsens Leaders Say

first_imgThe Air Force will face a shortage of 1,000 pilots in the coming years as extended deployments and restricted training for non-deployed pilots due to budget constraints hurt morale, the service’s top leaders said during a State of the Air Force media briefing Wednesday.Earlier announcements indicated the service would be 700 fighter pilots short by the end of the year, reported Stars and Stripes.“It is a crisis,” said new Chief of Staff Gen. David Goldfein, who addressed reporters at the Pentagon along with Secretary Deborah Lee James.The shortage stems not only from the drop in pilot morale, but also from competition from the commercial airline industry, which has increased hiring for pilots.The Air Force also is short 4,000 maintainers, which exacerbates the problem because it reduces the number of aircraft that are available to fly, Goldfein testified in June.“The reality is, pilots who don’t fly, maintainers who don’t maintain, controllers who don’t control are not going to stay with the company,” Goldfein said.To address the shortfalls in both pilots and maintainers, the Air Force is setting up two new F-16 training facilities later this year; the locations have not been announced, according to the story.Goldfein linked the service’s low readiness levels to issues with pilot morale. “Morale and readiness are absolutely linked,” he said. “Where we have low readiness we have our largest morale issues.” Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Huawei pushes back launch of 5G foldable the Mate X

Huawei pushes back launch of 5G foldable the Mate X

first_imgIf you were desperately ripping days off of your calendar until you could get your hands on Huawei’s $2,600 5G foldable, the Mate X — which was originally slated to launch next month — it sounds like you’re going to have to wait a bit longer, per TechRadar which attended a press event at Huawei’s Shenzhen headquarters today. It reports being told there is no possibility of a September launch. Instead Huawei is now aiming for November. But the company would only profess itself certain its first smartphone that folds out to a (square) tablet will launch before 2020. So it seems Mate X buyers may need to wait until circa Christmas to fondle this foldable.It’s not clear exactly why the launch is being delayed. But — speculating wildly — we imagine it’s something to do with the fact that the screen, er, folds.We’ve reached out to Huawei for official comment on the delay.Huawei’s Mate X date slippage suggests Samsung will still be first to market with its (previously) delayed Galaxy Fold — which was itself delayed after a bunch of review units broke (because, well, did we tell you the screen folds?).Last we heard, the Galaxy Fold is slated for a September release — Samsung seemingly confident it’s fixed the problem of how to make a foldable phone survive actual use.Of course survival in the wild very much remains to be seen with any of these foldable. So expect TC’s in house hardware guru, Brian Heater, to put all of these expensively hinged touchscreens through their paces.Returning to Huawei’s Mate X, potential buyers may not be entirely reassured to learn the company appeared to dangle rather more information about a planned sequel in front of reporters at the press event.A sequel which may or may not have even more screens, as Huawei is apparently considering putting glass on the back. Yes, glass. (The gen-one Mate X will have a steel back.) Glass panels which it says could double as touchscreens. On the back. As well as the front. We have no idea if that means the price-tag will double too.This theoretical quad (?) screen foldable follow-up to the still unreleased Mate X might even be released as soon as next year, according to TechRadar’s reportage. Or — again speculating wildly — it might never be released. Because, frankly, it sounds mental. But that’s the wacky world of foldables for ya.There may be method in this madness too. Because, since smartphones turned into all-screen devices — making it almost impossible to tell one touch-sensitive slab from another — plucky Android device makers are trying to find a way to put more screen on the slab so you can see more.If they can pull that off it might be great. However sticking a hinge right through the middle of a smartphone’s primary feature and function without that simultaneously causing problems is certainly a major engineering challenge.last_img read more
