IT Market Updates / Honor Play 4 Pro key specs con...
Last post by rajoee - Yesterday at 10:41 PM
The Honor Play 4 Pro version will flaunt the flagship Kirin 990 chipset, with the basic model expected to get a MediaTek Dimensity 800.



HIGHLIGHTS
. Honor Play 4 Pro key specs have leaked online ahead of launch

. Honor Play 4 Pro has been confirmed to come with a Kirin 990 SoC

. The Honor Play 4 Pro is expected to get a 64-megapixel primary camera

The Honor Play 4 and Play 4 Pro are all set to launch in China today and ahead of their launch, some key specs about the device have been announced by the company. Honor has revealed through a teaser video, that the Pro version will indeed be flaunting flagship specs.

The Pro version is said to flaunt the flagship Kirin 990 chipset, with the basic model getting a MediaTek Dimensity 800. The teaser also reveals some information about the phone's supported fast charger, but doesn't confirm the rumored 40W. Apart from this, the new teaser has also confirmed the body temperature sensor, which had previously been confirmed by the company.

The Honor Play 4 and Honor Play 4 Pro phones are set to be announced tomorrow and will come close on the heels of the Play 4T and Play 4T Pro -- two devices that were launched only recently. Earlier, the two phones were teased by the company in three colors in a Weibo post that did not disclose much apart from showing the phone sporting a quad camera set-up at the back, with what appears to be a 64-megapixel primary camera.

Except for this, there is little official information about the phone available right now. Previously, we've seen a number of leaks about the device, and even a TENAA listing which claimed to have revealed all there is to know about the internals of the phone. The listing revealed that the Honor Play 4 will come equipped with a 6.81-inch display with 1080 x 2400 pixel LCD display.

While the report doesn't reveal any information about the chipset, the phone is shown in the listing to be made available in 4GB, 6GB, or 8GB RAM options. For storage, the listing claims the device will get 64GB, 128GB or 256GB storage options.

There will be four cameras on the device, with the primary being a 64-megapixel main camera, secondary being an 8-megapixel lens, and two additional 2-megapixel sensors sat next to them. The TENAA listing also claims the phone could get a 16-megapixel selfie shooter in a punch-hole cut out on the front. Running the show would be a 4,200 mAh battery.

The Honor Play 4 Pro, is expected to be slightly more powerful, with the phone also expected to offer 5G. Under the hood, the phone will pack the Kirin 990 chipset and also include a Sony IMX600y sensor for its main camera. This will form part of the dual-camera set-up at the back, with the phone also supporting two selfie cameras on the front. The front-facing cameras will be in a punch hole on the upper left side of the screen.

The phone is also tipped to get an under-display fingerprint reader and support for 40W fast charging and a 3.5mm audio jack.

Last post by rajoee - Yesterday at 10:40 PM
Social media giant Facebook has introduced a new feature that would allow users to bulk delete their old posts. Find out how.



HIGHLIGHTS

. Facebook has introduced a new feature that would allow users to bulk delete their old posts.

. The Manage Activity tool will give you two options to deal with your old posts.

. Manage Activity tool will arrive first on the Mobile app and Facebook Lite and then to the Facebook web.

Social media giant Facebook has introduced a new feature that would allow users to bulk delete their old posts. The company announced on Tuesday that it will be launching the Manage Activity feature to help people trash or archive their old posts. All of us have posted pictures or posts that we find embarrassing now and want to get rid of it when Facebook sends a Memories notification. However, now with Facebook's new feature removing embarrassing posts won't be that hard.

If you dig deep into your Facebook accounts, you would find tons of posts or pictures that are completely irrelevant now and holds no value to you. It could about an old friendship or a relationship that no longer exists. While you might have happily moved on in life, Facebook will remind you every year of the past that you don't want to revisit. But worry no more, Facebook is also bringing the feature that will help you get rid of them. And the best thing is you can delete posts and pictures in bulk, without really going to every single post and hitting the delete button. The company has rolled out the feature for some users already and it is gradually releasing it for everyone.

"Whether you're entering the job market after college or moving on from an old relationship, we know things change in people's lives, and we want to make it easy for you to curate your presence on Facebook to more accurately reflect who you are today," Facebook said in a blog post.

The Manage Activity tool will give you two options to deal with your old posts. You either archive them or get rid of them completely. The archive feature would mean that posts will not be visible to other visitors or to your friends. You can retain the content just for yourself without letting others to view it. This could be a nice way of holding on to the memories of the past but without including everyone else into it.

The other option is to move your posts to Trash. The trash folder will keep your posts for 30 days before deleting them completely from the app. But if you want to manually delete the posts or wish to restore them you can do that before the app gets rid of your posts. Facebook has made it simpler for users by letting them delete their posts in bulk.

"We've also developed filters to help you sort and find what you're looking for, like posts with specific people or from a specific date range," Facebook said.

As per the company, the Manage Activity tool will arrive first on the Mobile app and Facebook Lite and then to the Facebook web.

IT Market Updates / New Apple iPhone 12 leak confi...
Last post by rajoee - Yesterday at 10:38 PM
In line with the previous leaks, this report also shows the iPhone 12 in four models spread across three different sizes.



HIGHLIGHTS

. Apple's iPhone 12 series has been leaked yet again

. The new leak reveals key details about the upcoming iPhone 12

. All four upcoming iPhones are tipped to sport 5G

The upcoming iPhone 12 from Apple has found itself leaked again on supply chain blog Macotakara. The new leak shows all four models of the phone and reveals all there is to know about the design of the phones. This new report does so by showing off dummy units of all four iPhone 12 variants.

In line with the previous leaks, this report also shows the iPhone 12 in four models spread across three different sizes. As per the new report, there will be a 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max, while the 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch phones will be the 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

All four phones have been shown to sport the same iPhone X like design, with an all-screen display and a notch to house the Face ID mechanism. The new dummys of the phone revealed by Macotakara don't throw up too many surprises, with them not revealing much apart from the SIM card tray being moved to accommodate possibly a new 5G SIM.

The relocation of the SIM card tray, the reports adds, is so that Apple could up space to put in Qualcomm's antenna in package (AiP) module, to help the phones connect to the superfast mmWave 5G. Interestingly, this goes against previous leaks which have claimed that it is only the iPhone 12 Pro models that will get support for this standard.

But regardless of which models get support for 5G technology, the upcoming iPhone 12 phones are arguably one of the most awaited ones of this year. The new iPhones from Apple are tipped to come in multiple sizes, with a non-Pro 5.4-inch model, a non-Pro 6.1-inch model and a Pro 6.1-inch model and a Pro 6.7-inch model set to populate the list.

The iPhone 12 is expected to get 120Hz ProMotion display, however, this feature is being tipped to be exclusive to the 6.1 and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro phones. Reports claim that the ProMotion screens will feature dynamic refresh rate switching allowing them to switch between 60Hz and 120Hz depending on the task at hand.

The other changes coming to the iPhone 12 series will include a smaller notch -- possibly as a result of the shrinking down of the FaceID sensor. The hardware for this tech could also support a wider-angle lens for face unlocks from multiple positions. iPhone 12 is also said to feature updated autofocus than previous models. The camera improvements will also ensure better subject detection and slow-motion performance under low light. There is also expected to be a telephoto zoom upgrade from 2x to 3x optical zoom. Apart from this, the iPhone 12 Pro models are said to get a larger battery -- as big as 4,400mAh -- to handle the increased load caused by the faster refresh screen.

Global Technology Updates / Cyclone Nisarga muddles Mahara...
Last post by rajoee - Yesterday at 10:36 PM
Cyclone Nisarga puts pressure on municipal bodies in Maharashtra in the middle of its fight against Covid-19. Cyclone-affected areas of Gujarat are not major Covid-19 outbreak centres except Surat.



HIGHLIGHTS

. Cyclone Nisarga to stretch municipal workforce further in Maharashtra

. Nisarga-affected areas of Maharashtra are also badly hit by Covid-19 outbreak

. Gujarat gets a reprieve, worst-affected Ahmedabad stays safe from Nisarga

Cyclone Nisarga has made landfall at Alibag just to the south of Mumbai in Maharashtra. Nisarga became the first cyclone in recorded history to hit Mumbai, and also the first to hit Maharashtra in the month of June.

It has come as a double whammy for Maharashtra. Cyclone Nisarga has impacted some of the areas worst-affected by the coronavirus outbreak: Mumbai, Thane, Raigad and the neighbouring areas.

Cyclone Nisarga has Mumbai, Thane, Raigad, Palghar, Sindhudurg and Ratnagiri in its ambit in Maharashtra, and Valsad, Navsari, Surat, Bhavnagar and Bharuch in Gujarat besides the Union Territories of Dadra Nagar Haveli, and Daman and Diu.

In Maharashtra, the Cyclone Nisarga-affected areas are also the areas which have previously seen municipal bodies struggling after every spell of heavy rain. Even in 2019, over a dozen people died in Mumbai alone in rain-related incidents.

Mumbai chokes every time it rains excessively. Cyclone Nisarga is the first such storm to hit Mumbai and it may bring the maximum volume of water in the city. The July-2005 shower is still recalled by residents of the city. But the situation has not improved much even 15 years later.

And, this is where the fight against Covid-19 gets hampered. The municipal bodies, which usually engage in the upkeep of the cities, are at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19.

The BMC health and other municipal workers, who would be otherwise pressed into immunization, population survey and fumigation activities during pre-monsoon and monsoon season, had been pulled out to tackle the coronavirus situation in Mumbai.

Now, they would be re-deployed to de-clog the cities putting the anti-coronavirus drive in peril. This comes at a time when for the first time, Maharashtra has started showing a lower than the national rate of increase in coronavirus spread.

Cyclone Nisarga will certainly cleanse the air in Mumbai and around of coronavirus to a large extent, and ease the pressure on water supply in the wake of Covid-19 sanitation drives. But, it increases the worry of the authorities.

Mumbai including Navi Mumbai has reported over 45,000 cases of Covid-19. Thane has reported nearly 100, Raigad 648, Palghar 156, Ratnagiri 304 and Sindhudurg 52 novel coronavirus cases. Together, they account for over 65 per cent coronavirus cases in Maharashtra.

If the Covid-19 numbers from Kalyan-Dombivali, Ulhasnagar, Bhivandi Nijampur, Mira Bhayandar, Vasai-Virar and Panvel are included, the combined share in Maharashtra coronavirus outbreak goes past 70 per cent.

Covid-19 situation of Gujarat, in contrast, is not as adversely affected by Cyclone Nisarga. Here, almost two-third of over 17,000 coronavirus cases is from Ahmedabad itself, which is not in the Cyclone Nisarga coverage.

Cyclone Nisarga covers Surat, the second-worst Covid-19 affected district of Guajrat (over 1,700 cases), Bhavnagar (126), Bharuch (44), Valsad (41) and Nasari (26). Except Surat, Gujarat's anti-coronavirus drive is not much impacted.

The Union Territories of Dadra and Nagar Haveli (4 Covid-19 cases) and Daman and Diu (no confirmed Covid-19 case) are in the zone of Cyclone Nisarga but they don't have serious coronavirus problem.

Last post by rajoee - Yesterday at 10:33 PM
Cyclone Nisarga made landfall in Maharashtra's Alibag. Section 144 of CrPC has been imposed in Mumbai as a precautionary measure.

https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/indiatoday/images/story/202006/File_photo_of_Mumbai_Internati-770x433.jpeg?FZj4QK._CdSGB6gXYYCfAsuwiG2IjmGo

umbai's Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) issued a statement on Wednesday about flight operations on May 3. As per the statement, no flight will either take off or land at the Mumbai airport between 2:30 PM and 7 PM.

Earlier, a spokesperson for the Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) had stated that eight arrivals and 11 departures were scheduled from the airport on May 3. "All necessary safety measures have been put into place," the spokesperson had added.

Since domestic flight operations resumed on May 25, the CSMIA has been handling close to 50 flights each day.

Cyclone Nisarga is moving towards the city of Mumbai after making landfall in Alibag. As a precautionary measure, section 144 of the CrPC has been imposed in the city. Teams of NDRF have also been deployed in Mumbai, Raigad, Palghar, Thane, Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg.

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) in a statement on Wednesday said that the landfall process of cyclone Nisarga will take nearly three hours.

Global Technology Updates / India's coronavirus tally jump...
Last post by rajoee - Yesterday at 10:32 PM
Despite this rapid growth in Covid-19 cases, the govt has said its preventive measures to contain the disease have been very effective. It has also maintained that community transmission has not taken place in India yet.



The number of people who have tested positive for Covid-19 in India crossed the 2 lakh-mark on Tuesday. However, of these 2 lakh cases, over 1 lakh were reported in the last two weeks.

The first Covid-19 case in India was reported on January 30 in Kerala. These were students who had returned from Wuhan, the epicentre of coronavirus outbreak in China.

India saw coronavirus outbreak in March. By March 10, India had 50 cases. The number of Covid-19 cases has risen rapidly in the country since then.

On May 18, India's Covid-19 case tally reached 1 lakh. This was 110 days after the country reported its first case.

However, India took just 15 days to report another one lakh cases.

Despite this rapid growth, the government has said its preventive measures to contain the disease have been very effective. They cite a much lower fatality rate than several other countries, and also the lengthening doubling rate to back their claim.

Authorities said the recovery rate of Covid-19 patients is improving consistently in India and they are in a much better position in handling the pandemic.

Globally, more than 63 lakh people have tested positive for Covid-19 since its emergence in China last December and over 3.7 lakh have lost their lives.

Testing infrastructure has also been ramped up considerably in India in the recent weeks with an average of 1.2 lakh tests being conducted every day now.

So far, close to 40 lakh tests have been conducted in India, putting it among the top-five nations globally on this parameter alongside the US, Russia, UK and Spain. However, India does not figure among the top-100 countries when it comes to tests per one lakh population.

At present, India is the world's seventh worst-hit nation in terms of overall case count, after the US, Brazil, Russia, the UK, Spain and Italy. While more than 18 lakh cases have been detected in the US so far, Brazil has over 5 lakh cases and Russia has over 4 lakh. The UK tally is nearly 2.8 lakh cases, followed by close to 2.4 lakh in Spain and about 2.3 lakh in Italy.

In terms of the death toll, the US tops the global tally with more than 1.05 lakh fatalities, while India does not figure among the top-ten countries on this parameter.

More than 27 lakh have recovered so far across the world, with the US again topping this chart with nearly 4.6 lakh recoveries, followed by Brazil, Russia, Germany, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Iran, India and China in the top-10.

In terms of active cases, India figures among the top-five nations, while the US again is on the top with more than 11 lakh active cases. The government said India is far away from the peak of Covid-19 spread.

The government has officially not admitted that Covid-19 spread is in community transmission stage. Responding to a question on Tuesday, Indian Council of Medical Research scientist Nivedita Gupta said, "Instead of using the word community transmission, it is important to understand the extent of spread of the disease and where do we stand in comparison with other countries."

When asked when the peak will arrive, Gupta said, "We are very far away from the peak. Our preventive measures to curtail the disease are very effective and we are better positioned in comparison with other countries. You will get to see the data in a week."

Non IT Market Updates / Over 3,000 Indian restaurants ...

Over 3,000 Indian restaurants in UK set to close due to Covid - 19

Going for an Indian' on a Friday night has become a part of British culture over the decades, but senior figures in the Indian restaurant industry believe the coronavirus pandemic is dealing a body blow to thousands of outlets that were already struggling.

Of the nearly 9,000 Indian restaurants across the UK, over 3,000 are expected to close, leading to job losses in the tens of thousands in the £4 billion-industry. Many have switched to takeaway service, but its financials are nowhere near that of a packed open restaurant.

"Delivery companies were already putting restaurants out of business. This pandemic has driven a stake in our hearts. How can you sustain a business if only 20 or 30 people are allowed in a restaurant", wonders London-based celebrity chef Cyrus Todiwala.

"People are scared to go to restaurants. We are all worried about the future of the industry, no one knows how the future will shape, with major fall in tourists, people working from home and government loans offering only marginal relief", he added.

Running several outlets across London, Todiwala is among many who have switched to takeaway services, including another celebrity chef, Manoj Vasaikar, of Indian Zing, and central London restaurants such as Dishoom, Masala Zone and Gymkhana.

Vasaikar said: "Restaurants that cater to mainly neighbourhood clients are doing well with takeaway due to brand loyalty built over the years, but the revenue is still 40% to 50% down. Rents are very high in some London areas, so restaurants there are suffering."

"More than 3,000 restaurants will close due to the pandemic. Offices are closed, so there is no income from that important stream. The Conservative government has helped with loans, but the logistics of staffing, delivery and takeaway is a headache", he added.

According to senior chef Sunil Kumar, if restaurants were doing business worth £10,000 a day before the lockdown, it is now barely £1,000, serviced by a single chef instead of previous five or more. There is not much revenue in takeaways, he added.

An assessment by the Aston Business School suggests that thousands of the UK's 'curry houses' could struggle to reopen after lockdown is lifted, and to survive, the remaining ones will need to raise prices to a realistic level to offset the fall in revenues from less crowded restaurants.

Monder Ram, professor in the Aston Business School, said: "The sector's facing so many challenges...Supermarkets are one of the most prolific sellers of curries and large chains of pubs and restaurants are also entering this market, (and) these problems of competition and newcomers have been accentuated by Covid-19."

"A group of friends going out for a lively evening of entertainment finished off with a curry is part and parcel of the British way of life. If you take that away you're taking away the very essence of what going out for a curry means," he added.

The industry is faced with pandemic-related challenges when the influential Migration Advisory Committee in June 2019 recommended easing of norms to recruit professionals and chefs from outside the EU. Stake-holders believe the Friday night experience may no long be the same across city centres and towns across the UK.
