The Google entry confirms that the upcoming Galaxy XCover Pro 2 will feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 778G 5G chipset and 6GB of RAM. The display has a resolution of 2,408 x 1,080 pixels and a pixel density of 450ppi, suggesting the panel is smaller than 6.5″.

Empik gives up over 40 stores in shopping malls

According to the management board of the Empik Group, an outbreak of coronavirus will reduce the attractiveness of large shopping centers. Therefore, the group decided to withdraw from more than 40 lease agreements for their showrooms in shopping malls. Shopping centers and galleries will start operating on May 4, as part of the loosening of the bans introduced in connection with the COVID-19 epidemic. The Empik Group does not believe, however, that Poles will decide so soon to return to their normal lives, hence the decision to close some of their showrooms in shopping malls. Empik stores in shopping malls In the official announcement we can read that Empik has decided to withdraw from over 40 lease agreements. The exact number of salons that will be closed or their exact location has not been provided. We can only read that the decision is dictated by the predicted decline in shopping center visits. It is also possible that Empik will decide to close more of

OnePlus 8 Pro: Greenish problem fixed secretly

OnePlus has secretly eliminated the green tint problem with its new flagship OnePlus 8 Pro. The OxygenOS 10.5.5 update has already fixed this problem. Shortly after the release of the OnePlus 8 Pro, users reported a green tinge on their displays, similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. And also how the error appeared was identical. Apparently there were problems with the 120 Hz refresh rate. However, now seems like the South Korean manufacturer also to belong to the past. Because the last update to OxygenOS has probably fixed the error again. Although users of OnePlus 8 Pro find that they no longer see a green cast after the update, the changelog for the new version does not mention anything about the correction. OnePlus may have only distributed a partial fix with the update and an official update for it will come in the future. If so, it would of course be great that OnePlus reacted to the problems so quickly. The post OnePlus 8 Pro: Green tint problem fixed secr

Polsat funded up to 200,000 coronavirus tests

Zygmunt Solorz and Grupa Polsat spent as much as PLN 16 million on coronavirus tests together with the necessary laboratory equipment. They will be forwarded to the Ministry of Health as invaluable help in fighting the epidemic. 200 thousand genetic tests confirming the presence of coronavirus, used by all laboratories performing official tests for the Ministry of Health, will be given to Poles as a gift from Polsat Group and its president. Along with the tests, eight sets of diagnostic devices (thermocyclers) and automatic extraction systems were purchased along with genetic tests and all consumables needed to conduct confirmatory tests. These are complete diagnostic kits. All tests and reading devices will be donated to society thanks to the involvement of Minister Sławomir Gadomski from the Ministry of Health, consultation of professor Andrzej Horban, national consultant in the field of infectious diseases and thanks to president Sławomir Gnalicki from Argenta

Microsoft is heading towards the eye of the cyclone. It will rock

Superficial reading of Microsoft's quarterly financial results apparently blows boredom. Increases, increases, increases and above expectations of Wall Street analysts. However, I'm starting to understand where the idea for a strong exposure of the Microsoft 365 brand came from. Started by Steve Ballmer and continued by Satya Nadella, the transformation of Microsoft into a company providing digital online services turned out to be a hit, and expressing this opinion in 2020 is practicing banalities. The company generates fantastic financial results quarter by quarter and year by year. Microsoft is most easily perceived by its three main divisions. These make up cloud computing ( Azure ), productivity (Office and the rest) and personal computers ( Xbox , Surface , Windows). The last two CEOs of Microsoft led to the fact that these three divisions - although they work together and intertwine - are so independent from each other that if one of them fell for s

A colorful photocopier is enough to fake correspondence choices in Poland. And ride!

Without the PKW seal and in envelopes that anyone can buy at the post office. This is how packages are filed for the upcoming presidential elections in Poland. Journalists of the Krakow edition of Wyborcza.pl have reached the company dealing with the submission of electoral packages. He carries out his duty conscientiously, using his extensive experience ... in something completely different. According to Gazeta Wyborcza , Paragon Customer Communications was chosen to submit election packages. It is difficult to accuse anything of this company - it has a good reputation, so we expect it to work equally diligently on election packages. With the same care as before. The problem is that Paragon, based in Wieliczka, clearly has no competence and experience to carry out such a serious task as preparing election materials. Receipt has nothing to do with a securities printing company or similar institution - and it's difficult to blame the company itself. However,

Samsung: New Android 10 roadmap

It's no secret that Samsung's Android 10 roadmap is constantly changing. Now there is a customized version again. The new Android 10 roadmap has now been published in the Samsung Members app. Many of the manufacturer's models are already on the move with the latest Android iteration, but some are still waiting.

There is still no strongman for privateer. Mechanical keyboard Corsair K95 Platinum RGB XT - review

Corsairs feel breath on their backs. Competition - especially from Logitech - has caught up with the quality of its own mechanical keyboards. Hence the Corsair K95 Platinum RGB XT, which is an improved version of the American flagship keyboard, designed to remind rivals of their place in the row. How many people, so many opinions. Each player has their own preferences, favorite producers and individual purchasing budgets. Hence the wealth of sentences and experiences we can find on the Internet. Being at the experiments, my wide fingers tapped on dozens of different keyboards. That is why I have no doubt that Corsair has been producing the best mechanical keyboards for players for several years. I have no doubt that for some time the competition has been doing everything it can to detonate the Corsairs. Hence the Corsair K95 Platinum RGB XT - an improved version of the Corsairs flagship keyboard. The device in a huge part resembles the Corsair K95 RGB Platinum k

The Spitzer Space Telescope confirms that black holes are bald. No hair, not one

Black holes are really annoying objects. Although we know quite a lot about them, for example, we still do not know much about how they move in space. No wonder, after all, they are completely dark and can not be observed directly. Now, however, scientists have been able to accurately trace the movement, or even dance, of two huge black holes. The galaxy OJ 287, a small 3.5 million light years away from us, is home to one of the largest black holes discovered so far. The mass of the monster inside OJ 287 is estimated at 18 million solar masses. As if that wasn't enough, around this really supermassive black hole revolves another, smaller with a mass of "only" 150 million solar masses. During the full lap, which takes 12 years, the smaller of the holes twice breaks through the vast gas disk surrounding the larger of them, causing a strong burst of radiation, stronger than the radiation of a billion (not a billion) stars, i.e. stronger than the glow of

This is not a telephone for young people. iPhone SE (2020) - review

I spent a week with the iPhone SE (2020) and it was such a pleasant journey back in time. Feeling that this is a phone from the previous era, but ... it does not have to be a disadvantage. Tim Cook is a recycling master. The iPhone SE from 2020 is a boring smartphone, and its premiere was just a formality. We have long been expecting another Apple phone combining the design of an already dimmed product line with top components . We've been waiting for this device for four years. The hybrid that in the housing of the iPhone 8 closes components straight from the iPhone 11, I wore in my pocket for the last week. The smartphone surprised me in many respects, but there are things that in my eyes disqualify this phone. However, I realize that ... I'm not in the target group. iPhone SE (2020) is not a smartphone for young people By young I mean young here with spirit, not necessarily with age. Consumers who are up to date with the trends on the mobile market w
