Samsung Galaxy S9’s Box Leak Reveals Surprising New Features/Reviews


Samsung newest flagship phone in coming next month at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) but the leaks show no signs of stopping. The latest was a retail of the Galaxy S9 with some interesting new details mentioned specifications, Here's the image of box.


 The box pretty much confirms the rumored specifications of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9.
What the rumors didn't to was the inclusion of stereo speakers and a camera with variable apertue.
It mentions f/1.5 and f2.4 for the Dual Pixel 12 MP camera, similar to the China exclusive W2018 phone which had f/1.5 aperture. No smartphone has implemented a variable aperture to date , which should make Samsung implementation all the more interesting.

Another thing mentioned here are the Super Slow-mo videos ehich could mean something similar to Sony's 960 fps motion eyes camera on the XZ series.

Stereo speakers are also making a comeback, if the specs on the box are correct. Leaked renders of the galaxy S9 show even slimmer bezels than before, however Samsung is likely to use the earpiece as the second speaker to keep the bezels samll.




Other specification include a 5.8 inch Super AMOLED QHD+ (2960x1440) resolution display. It will be powered by Exynos 9810 or Snapdragon 845, with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage.
It will have an 8MP front camera as well as wireless charging support. IP 68 water and dust resistance is also making its way to the S9 in addition to bundled AKG earphones in the box.

COMING IN NEXT MONTH:

With the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) ending, tech fans are looking forward to the next big tech event: the Mobile World Congress (MWC). As the name implies, the MWC is where smartphone companies show off their latest and greatest products.
 _
At the CES, samsung CEO DJ Koh announced that the Galaxy S9 will be revealed next month at the MWC. Last years S8 was revealed at the "Galaxy Unpacked" event organized by Samsung, however this time around the next iteration of the Galaxy S series will be showcase at MWC.

pk Domain Users Recieve Virus in Emails; PKNIC Alerts

The digital World with all its charms and funny cat videos is also filled with people who just want to rip you off by stealing your personal information. PKNIC the .pk domain registry in Pakistan has issued a security warning to all its users to put them on alert about fake email carrying harmful malware virus attachments.

As you can see in the image above PKNIC warns that email account like accounts@pknic.net.pk or staff@pknic.net.pk may try to send attachments to the users which may prove to be a security risk. What is interesting about these fake emails is the fact that their domain is the same as that of the original domain registry organization in Pakistan i.e. @pknic.net.pk. The email scam can be prety convicing because of the email address and thus can trick anyone into downloading or opening any attachment.

The organization has thus made it clear to its users that it never sends any attachments unless they have had prior arrangements.
 _

In 2003 PKNIC was hacked twice where where a group of hackers defaced several websites carrying .pk domain including those of Pakistan's famous newspapers.

Last year FBR also had to issue a warning when Pakistan taxpayers started receiving emails that ended up infecting their computers

Pakistani soon pay their taxes via ATM and Online Banking



State Bank of Pakistan, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and 1-Link have signed an agreement in Islamabad today to develop a mechanism enabling the public to pay FBR taxes and customs duty using internet banking or ATMs. The facility would be available round the clock /7 days a week. As per the proposed mechanism, the banks will add FBR (Inland Revenue) and FBR (Customs) as Billers in the Billers Module and develop the necessary interface with 1-Link.
After the system is made operational, the taxpayers/importers will fill their tax and customs duty payment details in the FBR (IRS) and Customs (WeBOC) online modules to generate payment slip ID (PSID).
The PSID will then be used to access the tax/duty payment details on banks’ web page or ATM as the case may be. The taxpayer or their agent will then pay the tax by debiting his/her bank account for onward credit to the respective government account in SBP BSC.

The whole process will be online and fully automated. The SBP has also advised banks to add FBR and Customs as Billers in the Bill Payment System offered by 1-link and develop necessary integration with 1-link within 2 months i.e. by 5th December 2017.
The system will be made operational by 31st December 2017 after necessary testing. The banks have been advised to demonstrate full ownership and commitment for successful and timely implementation of this strategically important project, which will bring huge efficiency gains besides facilitating the public in hassle-free payment of government taxes and duties.

Most popular browser about to get even better

World's most popular browser about to get even better
Google Chrome the world's most popular browser will soon getting better.

Google Chrome is about to get a big update which will make the world most internet browser better for its many users.

Search engine Google are already working on the ad blocking update which will be out soon for chrome users.

And a game changing update will mute auto play videos is also getting released Google Chrome user in January 2018.

But ahead of these new features launching Chrome users will also be able to download another big update in next few weeks.

The next version for Google Chrome is arriving on October 2017 and then a week later the update for Chrome OS will drop.

When that happens users will see "Not Secure" warning in the Google Chrome browser address bar for certain websites.

This warning will appear in two different scenarios.
  • Users will be altered if you start entering data on a site which does not encrypted your connection.
This means that it does not scramble the data between it and a browser and puts you at risk from hackers seeing everything you do.
The new features extends a protection that Google first added back in January according to Yahoo.
Google Chrome protection ensured a "not secure" flag appeared on pages that accepted passwords or credit card details without encrypt ions.
The "not secure" warning will also appear when a chrome user visits an encrypted site while in incognito mode.
New version of Google Chrome will show the same warning for any site lacking encryption but in an attention grabbing red.
According to NetMarketShare , Google Chrome has a staggering 59.61 percent share of the browser market.
Its nearest challenge internet Explorer has 14.18 percent share of the browser market share.

The Google Chrome security boost follows on from the announcement last month that the browser from January 2018 will not auto play videos which have any sound.

Google said update also means that auto play videos will only be played in Chrome when a user has shown an interest in that type of media.
The changes will be included in Chrome 64 and will benefit desktop and mobile users.

The news was revealed in by Mounir Lamouri a software engineer at Google in Chromium blog post.

He said,  " Users watch and listen to a lot of media and auto play can make it faster and easier to consume on the web.

"However, one of the most frequent user concerns is unexpected media playback which can use data consume power and make unwanted noise while browsing."

To address this, Chrome will be making auto play more consistent with user expectations and will give users more control over audio.

Starting in Chrome 64 auto play will be allowed when either the media won't play sound, or user has indicated an interest in the media.

This will allow auto play to occur when users want media to play and respect users wishes when the don't.
_

These changes will also unify desktop and mobile web behavior, making web development more predictable across platforms and browsers.
