Samsung releases Rose Pink Galaxy S8+

Published

Stop whatever you’re doing now. This is not a drill. 

In a move that made ladies, little girls (and some men) gasp in collective anticipation, Samsung has announced that the Galaxy S8+ will come in a special edition color.

This is the Samsung Galaxy S8+ in rose pink.

This is it, the phone of my dreams!

It’s so pretty, it will match your favorite Pokemon.

Yes ladies (and some gentlemen), this is real!

But before you get excited over the prospect of owning this pretty phone, know that you’d have to fly all the way to Taiwan to get it. As of now, the phone has only been announced there with no news if it’ll be available in other parts of the world.

It still packs power despite coming in pink like your Power Ranger of choice!

Nothing changes on the inside, though. It’s the same phone with the same specifications — powered by a Snapdragon 835 or Exynos 8895, 6.2-inch Quad HD display, 3500mAh battery capacity, as well as 12- and 8-megapixel cameras.

It’s so cute it’ll even match my hair.

Now all I need is a pink Samsung Galaxy S8+!

The phone will be on sale next month on Samsung Taiwan’s online stores at NTD 27,900 for a limited time.

The gaming machine is a looker!

Today, Acer announced a slew of new devices. From powerful gaming computers to updated notebooks, fans gathered as the tech brand unveiled products at the annual #NextAtAcer event in New York.

Out of all the gadgets and gizmos showcased, one thing caught everyone’s eye. This is the special edition Predator Helios 300.

It comes in a stunning all-white aluminum chassis with gold details — something you don’t see a lot of with gaming laptops.

Of course, it’s not all looks. Specs have been updated, too. It’s powered by the latest Core i7 processor with up to 16GB of RAM (expandable to 32GB) and 512GB SSD storage.

This thing is also equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card and a 15.6-inch display with a refresh rate of 144Hz. Other than those changes, it’s still the same powerful machine released last year.

Regional pricing is yet to be announced for this bad baby. In the meantime, let’s just ogle at this beautiful, clean, and crisp-looking exterior.

As if it doesn’t get any better, Acer also unveiled matching white accessories.

A gaming mouse and headphones to match the whole mood.

Just look at that. I can’t stop staring, and I’m sure you feel the same way.

This is definitely this year’s best-looking gaming device so far. Take my money, Acer!

Vivo showcases new tech in FIFA World Cup TVC

Are we getting a retractable selfie camera?

Published

on

Last year, Vivo announced that they are FIFA’s official smartphone sponsors under a six-year contract. Expect to see a lot of the brand, especially during the World Cup in 2018 and 2022.

A TVC highlighting the partnership just dropped and Vivo showcases their newest and greatest in smartphone tech. From bezel-less displays to in-display fingerprint sensors, the video shows it all.

At first, because of the in-display fingerprint sensor, the video seems to feature the Vivo X21 which launched in Singapore early this month, and is set to release in other Asian countries in June. But, what’s really curious is that it eventually shows a bezel-less smartphone with a retractable selfie camera. The only other time we saw that type of camera from Vivo was at this year’s MWC when they unveiled the Vivo APEX concept phone which they stressed was just a prototype.

This teaser comes at a perfect time as Vivo is set to launch a new all-display smartphone in Shanghai a few days ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia that opens on June 14.

Will we be seeing a smartphone with a retractable selfie camera on the market soon? Only time will tell.

Twitter introduces Twemoji for Android

For the good of all emoji!

Published

on

Android users, rejoice! You’ll never have to see those emoji error boxes on Twitter again. 

Remember not being able to read and appreciate tweets fully because some emoji don’t show? This error happens because of incompatibility and fragmentation. Twitter wants to solve this problem.

The company just rolled out Twemoji for Android 7.0 and below which aims to allow everyone to see all emoji, regardless of what (older) phone they’re on. Emoji from Google or Samsung can now be replaced; you can toggle this setting on the Twitter menu and turn on Twemoji.

The new Twemoji, which is actually done through Google’s EmojiCompat library, is a welcome update. At least one third of Android users are still on versions from 2014 or earlier.

Now you can really say there are emoji for everyone!
