Leak reveals details about the Samsung Galaxy S20

It’s not the Galaxy S11

This is perhaps the most significant leak to come out weeks before Samsung’s Unpacked event in February. It’s not the Galaxy S11. Instead, we’re getting the Samsung Galaxy S20.

XDA Developers got a hold of images of Samsung’s new flagship revealing a few notable things. First, the name of the device is revealed as it’s powered up, showing that it’s the Samsung Galaxy S20 +5G. It’s likely that this will be a Galaxy S20 series — one with a Galaxy S20 and a Galaxy S20+.

Not the Galaxy S11

The phone will sport an Infinity-O display similar to the one found on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Flipping the phone over, you’ll see a camera setup that looks a lot like the ones found on the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite revealed at CES 2020.

It appears it will have four cameras. Rumors say those will be a regular wide-angle lens, one ultra-wide angle, a depth sensor for portrait mode, and a macro camera.

The back also shows a sticker that asks the bearer of the phone to not leak the information. Guess, the sticker wasn’t a clear enough indication of what not to do. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Another foldable

The Galaxy S20 series isn’t the only phone we expect to see at Galaxy Unpacked. Similar to how the Galaxy Fold was announced last year, we’re also anticipating Samsung’s next foldable.

A blurry image seen during CES 2020 suggests it might be called the Galaxy Bloom. It might also take the clam-shell form factor akin to the Motorola razr.

Microsoft is acquiring Bethesda parent ZeniMax for $7.5 billion

Gearing up for the console war

Published

on

Microsoft has announced it’ll be acquiring ZeniMax Media for US$ 7.5 billion. The gaming company is behind many high-profile titles like Doom and Fallout. Furthermore, the gaming company owns Bethesda Softworks, which owns top-sellers like The Elder Scrolls, Wolfenstein, and Dishonored.

To be more precise, the deal includes multiple divisions like Bethesda Softworks, Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, ZeniMax Online Studios, Arkane, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks, Alpha Dog, and Roundhouse Studios.

The announcement comes just a week after Microsoft’s failed bid for the short-video app, TikTok. Instead, Oracle and Walmart won the race and officially became technology partners of the game. However, the gaming acquisition will immensely help the Redmond based giant sell its Xbox console.

“All of their great work will of course continue and grow and we look forward to empowering them with the resources and support of Microsoft to scale their creative visions to more players in new ways for you,” Xbox head Phil Spencer said in a blog post announcing the news.

The new Xbox and PlayStation are scheduled to come later this year and this deal gives Microsoft an edge in terms of game exclusivity. With the Coronavirus outbreak, gaming has picked up radically in 2020 and the future looks bright in the short term.

Microsoft will be seeking to bring all of the new studios’ upcoming titles to Xbox Game Pass on day one across Xbox consoles and PC.
