Forget About iPhone 7! The God Of Smartphones Is Here & The World Is Going Crazy For It!

Some Apple loyalists were going crazy at 7th of September launch of iPhone 7 that boasts of a 3 GB Ram.

You’ll forget all about the iPhone 7 after hearing about this new phone.

A smartphone company called Turing has announced specifications for their new smartphone and it puts all the best phones of the world to shame.

The Turing Monolith that’s going to be released in 2018 will boast of an 18 GB of RAM and 786 GB of in-built storage.

It will consist of 3 Snapdragon 830 processors, that’s about 6 times the processing of a regular phone.

In addition, The Turing Monolith will boast of a 6.4 inch 4k resolution screen. But that’s not where the specifications end.

The company has announced that the phone’s rear camera will be 60 MP and the front camera will be 20 MP. Imagine taking a selfie with THAT!

Even in the power section, The Turing Monolith will have a 120 KWh battery, that’s way longer than most phones we use today.

The Turing Monolith will be available for the masses sometime in 2018 but its specifications have already taken the technology world by storm.

Samsung recalls all Galaxy Note 7’s due to exploding batteries

Samsung has announced that it will recall all Galaxy Note 7 devices after multiple reports of battery explosions while the device was charging. This news comes after the company had reportedly delayed shipments to investigate the issue — obviously the Korean manufacturer found reason to be concerned about the product.

Lithium-ion battery chemistry is tricky stuff. Companies are extremely secretive about their chemistries and manufacturing components, looking for any method of gaining an advantage over their competitors. Samsung is recalling nearly all the devices, apparently, because it hasn’t been able to isolate the flaw to a single product or manufacturing flaw in a particular battery manufacturer’s process. While the number of affected devices is reportedly small, at just 24 per 100,000, thermal runaway in lithium-ion devices can ignite fires or leave third-degree burns on humans if the device is in a pocket when it ignites.

Flames and third-degree burns now included!

Various US carriers have already responded to news of the problem with their own recalls and programs. AT&T states that it is still in the process of defining its exchange / return program and will have more information for customers soon. T-Mobile notes that customers who have purchased a Samsung Note 7 are eligible for full refunds on the device and all Note 7 accessories. Customers may keep the Netflix subscriptions they received with the order and all restocking and shipping fees are waived. Sprint states it will offer customers a “similar device” until the situation is resolved but does not mention explicit refunds (like AT&T, it promises to share more details in the near future). Verizon notes it will waive the restocking fee for any customer that wishes to return or exchange the Galaxy Note 7.

Samsung is going to take a heavy hit for the recall, according to Reuters. Koh Dong-jin, head of the Samsung’s manufacturing business, told Reuters the recall would be worldwide and affect already-sold units, units in transit, and units still on store shelves. China is the sole exception — these devices apparently use different batteries and are not affected by the same problem. Koh wouldn’t confirm how many devices Samsung was recalling but noted that the company had already sold 2.5 million Note 7’s worldwide. “I can’t comment on exactly how much the cost will be, but it pains my heart that it will be such a big number,” he said.

The recall will have a significant impact on Samsung’s financials for the quarter but the company hopes long-term Note 7 sales will be unaffected. If you have a Note 7 we strongly recommend replacing it, even if you haven’t previously had problems — battery fires are nothing to take chances with.

‘Pokémon GO’s Upcoming ‘Buddy System’ Is The Best Thing That Could Happen To The Game

Buddies are important. Everyone likes a buddy. You might even play Pokemon Go with your buddies. But don’t you wish you could actually have buddies inside Pokemon Go? Don’t worry — they are coming. The buddy system, a wonderful feature that will allow us to upgrade our pokemon by walking and searching for pokemon, looks like it’s coming to Pokemon Go soon thanks to some impressive data mining.

According to Pokemon Go Hub, the buddy system making its way to your pocket will allow you to choose a pokemon to “bond” with. Essentially, it’s another step counting gameplay system, with your chosen Pokemon walking along with you as you hatch eggs and capture endless Ratatas. But, with your buddy, you’ll be able to earn candy which means you can more easily power them up and upgrade your chosen friend.

Pokemon Go Hub has the details (head over there for even more info):

  • Walking your Pokemon Buddy will award you with candy. The amount of candy is yet to be determined.
  • You can walk the same Pokemon Buddy multiple times, but there is likely a daily limit for obtained candy.

Basically, this is you and your buddy.

It’s somewhat of a bummer to still be without trading and “real” combat, but this latest update will definitely allow you to carve out a stable of adorable monsters that you feel are truly yours. Now Niantic just needs to figure out what they’re going to do once those frigid, winter months keep trainers from trudging from pokestop to Pokestop.

There’s a Petition to Create a Netflix Show Starring Thor & Darryl

In case you missed it, Marvel recently shared a hilarious mockumentary short—which previously premiered at Comic-Con—starring Chris Hemsworth’s Thor leading a more typical life with his roommate, Darryl Jacobson. Since Thor wasn’t involved in the events portrayed in Captain America: Civil War, he had some time on his hands, so he’s been bothering Darryl at work and home, volunteering at a local school, redecorating his room, and otherwise being as ordinary as the Asgardian god of thunder can possibly be.

The skit is absolutely hysterical, so good that now there’s a petition to parlay the hype into a full-blown Netflix show starring Thor and Darryl. Ty Schmidt, who started the Change.org petition, wrote that after he watched the video, he “went into the comment section, and stumbled upon a comment that said ‘Can we start a petition for this to be a Netflix Series’, and I thought to myself ‘I want this to be a thing too.’”

There’s good news and bad news here: The bad news is that, considering the sketch is little more than a fun and entertaining promotional tool for both Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok, it’s doubtful a TV series would be produced based on it.

However, the good news is that if you want to watch a new show about a long-haired mythical figure navigating ordinary urban life and encountering funny fish-out-of-water scenarios, Fox’s upcoming series Son of Zorn appears to be pretty much exactly that, and it premieres on September 11, so you really don’t have to wait that long!

Compare the Thor sketch with the trailer for Son of Zorn below, and be thankful that your wish is actually being granted a lot more quickly than you could have reasonably expected—even the thumbnail images for the two videos are almost the same!

And while we’re talking about Thor, we’ve got some major Ragnarok spoilers here:
