Middle-class smartphones are very popular in world markets, and Huawei is pushing as one of the best manufacturers of such devices. The fact that the new Maimang 8 looks familiar is due to the fact that this smartphone is identical to the Huawei P Smart +, which appeared on the market last year.
On the front of the phone, there is a 6.21-inch FullHD + display and a drop-in notch, featuring an 8MP camera. On the back side, there is a main 24MP camera, a 16MP ultra-wide lens and a small camera with a 2MP depth sensor. Also, a fingerprint scanner is located on the back cover.
Maimang 8 comes with a Kirin 710 processor in combination with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory, which can be upgraded with additional 512GB via a microSD card slot.
As for the battery, this smartphone is powered by a unit of 3,400 mAh. It uses EMUI 9 built on a standard Android 9 Pie operating system.
The phone will be available in two colors - Midnight Black and Sapphire Blue, with a starting price of 244 euros. It will be officially launched on June 12th, and the pre-sale starts today.
The United States ban imposed on Huawei has received another consequence that will further complicate the work of the Chinese giant. From this month, Huawei will no longer be able to use microSD memory cards, which will have to go to another, alternative solution.
Officially, Huawei is no longer a member of the SD Association - a trading group that has agreed on standard specifications for SD and microSD memory cards. In other words, Huawei no longer has the license to provide support for SD and microSD cards in the following models of smartphones and laptops of the company.
SD Association confirmed that Huawei is no longer a member of the group due to orders issued by US President Donald Trump, a new blow to the company's chances of maintaining competitiveness in the smartphone market. SD and microSD cards will continue to be used on existing Huawei models, but the company will not be able to use this standard for future devices.
Earlier this month, Huawei's collaboration canceled Google, ARM, Intel, Qualcomm and Broadcom, and Wi-Fi Alliance, an alliance that sets up Wi-Fi standards in the industry, temporarily restricted Huawei's membership due to bans from the United States. Meanwhile, the Chinese company voluntarily left JEDEC, the group that standardizes RAM specifications.
However, the problem of banning the use of SD and microSD cards are unlikely to be the biggest concern of the leadership of Huawei, as the company has recently started producing its own Nano-Memory Card, which is physically smaller than the standard microSD card and does the same function.
Some of the users who tested the new Samsung Galaxy Fold in a few days reported problems. Problems might have been avoided if Samsung had better explanations for users.
Problems with the new Galaxy Fold had a Verge journalist who had the opportunity to see the phone before others. Unfortunately, the likely reason for screen erosion is not enough to clear explanation. The journalist removed the "screen guard" of the device. Unfortunately, on this display, the protection cannot be removed.
Samsung has announced that it is already starting to check which is the cause of the malfunction in the devices, although the start of the sale is still scheduled for April 26.
"Several people who were checking reported that after removing the upper screen protection, there was damage to the screen. The main display of the Galaxy Fold must have protection, and it is part of the display structure. Removing the protection or adding adhesives can cause damage. We will surely ensure that this information is clearly visible to users, "Samsung told the Wall Street Journal.
It seems that the biggest problem with the phone is by removing the security, but not all have this malfunction on the device. The CNBC is left on the phone, but the screen of the phone, or rather the left side, flashes continuously.
Samsung will not delay the sale of the phone, but it seems that before the start, they will have to answer the question "What causes the Galaxy Fold screen?" Not so long ago the company had a fiasco with the release of the Galaxy Note 7. Then, due to the flammability of the battery, Samsung withdrew all the phones in this series.
If you want to travel, you must be sure that you will be able to establish communication anywhere in the world. Inspired by this issue, Viber has introduced a new mobile application service that will be particularly useful for people who travel a lot.
The new feature of Viber will allow users to choose a local phone number from the country where they reside and through it to receive phone calls and messages at local rates.
The Viber Local Number service is currently only available in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. In fact, they can be used by all Viber users, but it is only available with phone numbers from these three countries. In the future, more countries will be added to the circle where this service is available.
Through the local Viber number, users will be able to receive an unlimited number of calls and SMS, which will be available to them at the rates provided by local operators.
For those who travel frequently, the Viber Local Number service is more than welcome, as it will make it easier for them to work in the travel planning process, booking hotels and lodgings, as well as other travel related obligations.
Nowadays, for most, it is extremely difficult to be physically active. Stimulated by numerous advantages or overcrowded with working responsibilities, the race with time knows how to distance us from caring for our body.

It's no longer just a concept, but the swivel Galaxy Fold was officially presented at a special event called Samsung Unpacked. Last night we finally learned the date when he will appear on the market, as well as his price.
The concept of the Samsung Galaxy Fold (or Galaxy F) was announced in November, but last night appeared for the first time in the right light as a functional hybrid of a tablet and phone.
Its 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display allows it to be used as a tablet, which can be twisted in half and get a standard size on a smartphone. While rolling, the Galaxy Fold uses a smaller, 4.6-inch screen that takes the form of a phone.
Galaxy Fold is surprisingly quick, though its specifications will not leave you that impression. The smartphone comes equipped with a Qualcomm 7nm Octagon and 12GB RAM processor, and there are also two batteries that together have a 4.380 mAh capacity to power its operation to provide the user with uninterrupted use throughout the day.
This new phone/tablet will appear on the market on April 26, and its starting price will be $ 1,980 - which is twice as expensive as the newest Galaxy S model, which costs just $ 899.
The applications sent users pornographic content, redirected them to phishing web pages and downloaded photos of users.
After installing applications, they act harmlessly, but if you try to delete them, you'll notice that the application does not have an icon in the application list. Starting the application is via a "shortcut". For most users, this means a problem to remove the application. The app displays ads on unlocking devices. Some of the ads are for pornography, some of which link to content that attempts to collect user data, various rewards, and games of chance. For example, the application shifts the user to a site with simple video games. After three attempts, the user receives a "reward" for which he should leave the data on the phishing page.
Most applications are replaced with original Android cameras. The most common victim of these malicious applications is from India, although the whole Asian region is targeted.
No doubt the next technology that will capture the phones will be the ability to fold the screen. First, Royole Corporation introduced Royole FlexPai, then Samsung announced the Galaxy F and Infinity Flex Display. The last added to this list is the Xiaomi phone. The company announced its phone and is now stepping in front of the competition. Of course, we will have to wait and see the final versions of the phones, not their announcements.
Unlike competitors who fold in half, Xiaomi's phone folds into three parts. The middle part, which acts as the main screen of the phone, is twice as wide as the two sides bending under it. So far, there are not too many data that we can not spot on the video. What may possibly "escape" is that the phone is with MIUI Android, which should probably be a confirmation that Xiaomi has managed to adjust its operating system version and on flexible screens.
What is important to point out in this situation is that the company did not confirm the mass production of the phone. A spokeswoman for Xiaomi told TechCrunch that they are expecting reactions and feedback from users for now. If there is interest, they will consider the possibility of starting mass production of the phone with a flexible screen. Users can engage in a discussion at Weibo. However, discussions here are in Chinese and there is not much room for anyone who does not speak the language.
In addition to these three companies, Xiaomi, Samsung and Royole are also announced for flexible devices from both Huawei and Lenovo. With this, Apple is the only company in the top 5 manufacturers who have not announced a bold phone.
Last December, Viber celebrated its eighth birthday, and yesterday it presented a new version with a changed look.
The new version will be better, faster and safer for messaging.
"Over the past year, we have made a lot of efforts to improve quality. Sending messages becomes twice as fast as before, the quality of audio and video messages has also been improved, "Viber said.
The new version also has group video calls up to five users.
Too fast battery power on iPhone devices can be directly related to the applications installed on the phone. Some of them consume less battery, and some more - and you can discover which of them additionally burdens your phone.
Apple's new generation devices have a built-in tool that can easily detect which application consumes more or less than the battery.
How to access this tool? Very simple.
Go to the Settings menu and select the Battery option, then wait for the applet. Then press Last 10 Days and then the battery consumption will appear on the screen for the last 10 days, or the phone will show you the applications that consumed most of its battery.
It's easy to identify which of the applications consumes the most. For example, if, besides the application, you write 20%, it means that you spent one-fifth of the battery in the last week and a half.
There is an option by which you can set the applications to show you according to their activity. So if you have spent a little time on an application, and it consumed you a larger percentage of the battery, accuse her of the fact that you are constantly looking for a charger.
The battery saving solution is to delete applications or watch out for which of them are constantly running in the background. Of course, you can always switch to Low Power Mode, which will somehow reduce the activity of your phone in the background.
LG opened the year with a new smartphone that will enrich their offer on the market. It's about the Q9 model - the successor to the LG Q8, which appeared on the market this October but has not attracted much attention from customers for the time being.
The LG Q9 received a slightly older processor - the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 from 2016, and the device will use the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. Although the Android 9 Pie has been available for several months, however, several manufacturers have decided to equip their models with the older version of this operating system.
This phone has novelties and positive features, such as the large 6.1-inch screen with a resolution of 3,120 x 1,440 pixels, a Boombox speaker, a HiFi Quad DAC system and DTS: X stereo support.
Q9 is water-resistant according to IP68 standards and can "survive" half an hour underwater at a depth of one meter.
In addition, the smartphone has got 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal memory, a 16MP rear camera, an 8-megapixel camera and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Sales of this model start at $ 445 this month, and the Q9 will be available in Carmine Red, New Aurora Black, and New Moroccan Blue.
