We know all about OPPO’s F and R series of smartphones by now, but where has the A series been hiding?

A recent entry in OPPO’s A lineup has just been launched in the Philippines, and it’s just as capable as its more popular siblings. The entry-level A57 is equipped with 16-megapixel front and 13-megapixel rear cameras.

Other feature highlights include a selfie beautification mode, software bokeh capability, a fingerprint scanner, and a triple-slot tray which accepts two SIM cards and one microSD card.

The A57 has a battery capacity of 2900mAh and is powered by a Snapdragon 435 processor. It runs on ColorOS 3.0 on top of Android.

The OPPO A57 comes in gold and black and will be available in the Philippines starting June 16 for PhP 11,990. It retails in India for INR 14,990 and in China at CNY 1,599.

Official Samsung Galaxy S9 cases are now available including a Hyperknit cover

All are looking good!

We’re just a week away from the official announcement of the Galaxy S9 from Samsung, but its official cases just can’t wait anymore.

With all the leaks we’ve seen and read all over the internet, we already know everything about the physical looks of the Galaxy S9. It’s supposedly not much different compared to its predecessor, aside from the fingerprint reader placement at back. With probably the same fragile glass body, how do we protect it? Here’s a preview of the official cases from Samsung.

Fabric is the new thing in tech nowadays. If the luxurious Alcantara cases aren’t enough, the Galaxy S9 will also have Hyperknit covers in red or gray. There’s another cloth case with a flap on the front and shows time when closed.

The usual high-quality silicone cases will also be available and they’ll come in pink, black, and gray. The coverage of the silicone cases is the same as the Hyperknit’s sans the sporty-looking fabric cover.

The staple Clear View Stand cases will be on sale as usual. So far, there are three confirmed colors: gold, purple, and blue.

The source link below directs to the listing of MobileFun along with the corresponding prices of these and others like the new Alcantara cases but they don’t have available images as of writing.

Google kills ‘View Image’ button on searches

Stealing images won’t be that easy

Published

on

Google has announced a small, but significant change in their image search. Yesterday, the company announced that they are removing the “View Image” button on Google Image searches.

It’s not just one button that’s being killed. The “Search by Image” button is also getting the axe.

With this change, Google hopes to better safeguard the rights of copyright owners.

Google has also confirmed that these changes are part of settlements with Getty Images, who, nearly two years ago, filed a case against Google for “promoting piracy resulting in widespread copyright infringement.”

Earlier this month, the two companies announced a multi-year global licensing partnership with Getty Images CEO Dawn Airey claiming that “this agreement between Getty Images and Google sets the stage for a very productive, collaborative relationship between [our] companies.”

Nokia 7 Plus appears in live photos

Nokia’s first near-borderless phone

Published

The Nokia leaks keep sneaking in.

Just a few days ago, renders of the Android Go-powered Nokia 1 and Android One-backed Nokia 7 Plus appeared online. This time, an actual photo of the latter got uploaded and has been making rounds throughout the web.

The design closely matches the design we’ve been seeing in previous leaks. Its 6-inch near-borderless 18:9 display, which is supposed to be the company’s first, is seen more clearly in person:

Having Android One means the Nokia 7 Plus will have less bloatware on top of the slimmer bezels, as well as a quicker response to when new Android versions, such as the upcoming Android P, begin rolling out.

Not much else is known about the rumored smartphone, except that it’ll fall under the midrange segment for its assumed Snapdragon 660 processor, although a Zeiss-branded dual-camera setup is expected to appear on the back.

We won’t have to wait much longer to gather all the details; the Nokia 7 Plus (and possibly the Nokia 1) may show up during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain later this month.
