Vivo V7 goes official in Indonesia

Published

Vivo unveiled its latest near-borderless smartphone which has a lot in common with its bigger sibling. If the Vivo V7+ is too big for your liking, its non-plus variant might be able to please you.

The Vivo V7 is now official in Indonesia, and as expected, it’s still a selfie-focused phone with an 18:9 FullView screen. The display is a bit smaller at 5.7 inches but still has the same HD+ resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. Since the phone is smaller, its battery capacity is down to 3000mAh.


The rest of the phone is similar to its plus variant. It’s still powered by a Snapdragon 450 processor and has 4GB of memory, although the storage gets a downgrade to 32GB (still not bad).

A 24-megapixel f/2.0 front-facing camera handles the selfie needs along with Face Beauty 7.0 software. For the rear, it has a 16-megapixel PDAF camera and a single LED flash.

A fingerprint reader is placed on the metal back because of the lack of space in front, but face unlock is also available if you wish to set it up. The phone runs FunTouch OS 3.2 based on Android Nougat.

What the V7 doesn’t have (which the V7+ has) is the AK4376A Hi-Fi audio chip.

The Vivo V7 is now available in Indonesia for IDR 3,799,000 (US$ 280) in matte black or gold.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will be out early 2020

Epic fights and interesting side quests to come!

Published

If Bandai Namco’s Dragon Ball FighterZ wasn’t hyped up enough for you, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot might be what your missing.

This isn’t just about epic fights that Dragon Ball FighterZ blew up and is now know for. If you haven’t known, this time, you get to try exploring what used to just be a backdrop. The game allows you to play through most of Goku’s life. It’s an action role-playing game that lets you immerse yourself in Goku’s story as you progress further into the plot.


If you don’t find the appeal in playing out Goku’s life, you might want to reconsider. The game looks pretty cool and the views can be stunning when you’re flying in third-person perspective. When fights break out, it’s a whole different story.

The perspective shifts to an over-the-shoulder fighting game. Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot looks to be an interesting addition, drifting away from just letting us play hyped up fighting scenes. The game also lets you roam, mine, fish, and complete side quests.  

The game is going to be based off the anime. If you’re a huge fan of the anime, this is your shot to play it out in whole new immersive perspective.

When the heck is this game getting released? Luckily, it isn’t too far from being released. Bandai Namco just announced that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is coming out on the 17th of January 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Google Maps incognito mode coming soon

It’s in testing phase now

Published

on

During Google I/O 2019, the company announced that it is bringing its incognito mode to its Youtube, Google Search and Google Maps apps. Youtube already got its incognito mode, leaving the two without it. However, that would soon change as Google is reportedly the feature on Maps, as spotted by XDA Developer’s Mishaal Rahman.

Incognito mode in Google Maps will be a boon for users who don’t want their location to appear on their timeline. It can also hide searches for places and locations where users can have their “private” time.


Baking it directly into the app is useful. It’s so much easier than having to access it via the Chrome browser’s incognito mode and search for the mobile version of Google Map’s website.

Google putting incognito mode into its native apps is in line with its mission to put more privacy controls in the hands of its users. As more and more tech companies are being scrutinized for supposedly interfering with their users’ private lives, Google’s move is surely a step in the right direction.
