Donald Trump goofs up, again? Wants 6G network when 5G still to be in place

Donald Trump said in a tweet that there is no reason for US to lag behind in 5G, and even 6G, technology.

After a long wait, the world is still waiting for 5G internet to be rolled out in full force. While it has been in headlines for the past few months now, tech companies from all over the world are still competing to be first to bring 5G technology to the mass market. Only this week, Samsung launched a 5G variant of its latest flagship, the Galaxy S10 5G, the first ever smartphone to use the latest wireless communication standard. So as 5G is gradually coming closer to be a reality, US President Donald Trump is already went ahead and called for 6G.

Yes, that’s right, 6G. In a tweet, Trump said that he wants 5G “and even 6G” technology in the United States as soon as possible. “There is no reason that we should be lagging behind…” Trump further said in the two-part tweet. The demand comes despite the fact that 6G internet does not exist. It has not been even conceptualised yet, nor will it be for another decade or so.

“I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible. It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind,” Trump said in the tweet.

He further added, “I want the United States to win through competition, not by blocking out currently more advanced technologies. We must always be the leader in everything we do, especially when it comes to the very exciting world of technology!”

I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible. It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind. There is no reason that we should be lagging behind on………- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 21, 2019

….something that is so obviously the future. I want the United States to win through competition, not by blocking out currently more advanced technologies. We must always be the leader in everything we do, especially when it comes to the very exciting world of technology!- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 21, 2019

Trump’s statement comes in the wake of recent reports that the United States is looking to develop its own nationalised 5G network. While this could have been beneficial to a lot of users in the country that was not the reason Trump administration had in mind. The driving force behind the project, which has since been quashed, was the fear that “China has achieved a dominant position in the manufacture and operation of network infrastructure”.

Although in his tweet, Trump did say that US companies should win through competition and not by blocking out more advanced technologies, the country has kept Chinese companies from introducing 5G equipment. Reports towards the end of 2018 even suggest that the White House is considering an executive order to ban Huawei and ZTE from launching 5G technology in the US.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy S10 / S10+ Camera Review

The Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ have a fantastic camera array, packed with decent imaging features. The only thing is: we’ve seen it before on other, rival handsets. When Samsung eventually launches the Galaxy S10 5G that’s when things will get very interesting, given the ToF sensor.

Samsung Galaxy S10 camera: design and features

As soon as you lay eyes on it, you’ll notice that the Galaxy S10 has changed the physical positions of the cameras significantly from the S9.The rear cameras are now arranged horizontally rather than vertically down the centre.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy S10 / S10+ Camera Review

Third party image reference

This is just as well, as there can be up to four lenses on the S10, and keeping them in the same orientation would mean you might have ended up with your hand or fingers spoiling all your landscape shots.

Third party image reference

Meanwhile on the front, the bezel containing the selfie camera has disappeared. Samsung’s new Infinity O display puts its front facing camera (or cameras) in a little round punch-hole in the top right of the screen.

This won’t make you take better selfies or anything, but you will be able to enjoy a large almost uninterrupted display to look back at your photos and video and navigate around the phone’s other functions.

Samsung Galaxy S10 camera: variations

So, what’s the S10 range packing in terms of cameras? There’s a breakdown below, but all the range share a Dual Pixel 12MP wide lens (F1.5/F2.4) and a 16MP ultra wide lens (F2.2) on the back, and a Dual Pixel 10MP (F1.9) camera on the front. 

As a refresher, Dual Pixel is Samsung’s autofocus sensor technology, a high density variant of the phase detection tech seen on dedicated DSLRs and other high-end smartphones.

Third party image reference

These are all you get on the basic S10E, but the normal S10 adds a 12MP (F2.4) 2x optical zoom telephoto lens to the back.

 The S10+ gets all of that as well as an 8MP Depth (F2.2) lens to the front, resulting in a double punch-hole, which has been rumoured for some time. The range topping S10 5G has, aside from 5G connectivity, gets two hQVGA 3D depth sensing cameras. 

One goes on the front, replacing the 8MP depth lens, while the other goes on the back with the others, giving a four lens wide rear array. That’s a considerable amount of hardware. Some of it is borrowed from the Galaxy S9, but it’s still great to see it come back with little tweaks and upgrades.

Samsung Galaxy S10+ First Look: Packs A Punch

Samsung Galaxy S10+ First Look: Packs A Punch

Samsung’s new Galaxy S10 feels very familiar, but that’s alright. Of course, one can argue, what’s new about it then – does the Galaxy S10 push the boundaries of innovation any further? Well, yes and no. While it isn’t as crazy futuristic as its foldable phone, the Galaxy S10 is future-proof in its own sweet understated way. The Galaxy S10 is a phone designed for the masses – for those who’d take practicality over gimmicks. The Galaxy S10 is a phone that people will actually buy at the drop of a hat, without having to invest extra in a factor of anxiety, should they invest in a device like the Galaxy Fold. And the Galaxy S10 will serve that customer well.

Now I am not saying that the Galaxy S10 is perfect (for that you will have to wait for my full review) but basis of paper specs alone and my brief hands-on with the heftier Galaxy S10+, I can say this- the Galaxy S10 is a complete package that does not skimp on literally anything. Moreover, Samsung is launching so many variants this year, it’s also easier to pick one as per your liking, not to mention, as per your usage and budget. And as I mentioned earlier, the Galaxy S10 is also future-proof. It does not matter if you’re buying the Galaxy S10E or the highest-end Galaxy S10+, chances are, you’ll likely end up being satisfied – something that you can’t say about the new iPhones (even though I use an iPhone XR and I love it). The Galaxy S10 is just more value for money.

A lot of this has to do with the Galaxy S10’s price in India – it’s in line with the phone’s global pricing (unlike the Apple iPhone that costs gazillions more). The Galaxy S10E has been launched in India at Rs 55,900. The Galaxy S10 at Rs 66,900. The Galaxy S10+ at Rs 73,900. .

The Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10E all share some key features – you can call them basics, and all the Galaxy S10 phones do these basics well. All of them share the same glass and metal design language with near edge-to-edge screens courtesy Samsung’s new punch-hole Infinity-O display. The processor inside all of them stays the same as well – which is a combination of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and Samsung’s own Exynos 9820 (this is the version that Samsung will likely bring to India). So is the software, which is Android 9 Pie-based One UI – which is without a doubt Samsung’s most well though-out software yet.

All the three phones also pack the same dual aperture primary rear cameras and 10MP primary front camera. All of them can record UHD videos using both the rear and front cameras, and HDR10+ videos with the rear camera. Fast wireless charging and 9W reverse charging are also standard across the board, as is Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, IP68-certification and micro-SD expansion. The Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10E keep the headphone jack too!

The Galaxy S10+ is Samsung’s premiere Galaxy S10 with a 6.3-inch AMOLED HDR+ display with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection – Samsung is calling it Dynamic which indirectly means the Galaxy S10 display is brighter and offers punchier colours (and when paired with HDR10+ content, it is capable of offering a cinematic viewing experience) in comparison to the Galaxy S9. There’s a new ultrasonic fingerprint scanner which is different from the optical solution found in a phone like the OnePlus 6T – it is faster, doesn’t require you to wake the screen, and it works with greasy/sweaty fingers.

The Galaxy S10+ has the same variable aperture primary rear camera specs as last year’s Galaxy S9, although Samsung says it is using a new sensor. It is a 12MP wide (77-degree field of view) sensor with variable f/1.5-f/2.4 aperture and dual pixel OIS. Dual aperture will basically allow the Galaxy S10+ to shoot photos with more detail in low light (f/1.5), and photos without any metering issues when lighting is more than adequate (f/2.4). It is paired with a 12MP telephoto sensor with OIS (again like the Galaxy S9) for 2X optical zoom. Samsung is throwing in an additional 16MP ultra-wide (123-degree field of view) sensor with f/2.2 aperture and fixed focus in the Galaxy S10+.

On the front, the Galaxy S10+ has two cameras embedded into the display – one 10MP sensor with f/1.9 aperture and a secondary 8MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture for depth sensing.

The Galaxy S10+ in fact has the most versatile camera system on a Galaxy phone ever.

Moving on, the Galaxy S10+ comes with up to 8GB RAM and up to 512GB storage, and a 4,100mAh battery. Samsung has also announced a maxed-out variant of the Galaxy S10+ with a ceramic back, 12GB RAM and 1TB storage – it will be available in black and white.

The Galaxy S10 is essentially the Galaxy S10+ with a smaller 6.1-inch display and 3,400mAh battery, up to 8GB RAM and up to 512GB storage, and a single punch-hole selfie camera.

The Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ look a lot like the Galaxy Note 9, only they’re smaller and lighter. They feel good in the hands – even the 6.3-inch Galaxy S10+. And Samsung for the first time has built a UI that feels just tight on a large-screen phone.

The Galaxy S10E meanwhile has a smaller 5.8-inch screen with a flatter bezel (still punch-hole though, and also still AMOLED), lower 1080p+ resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The Galaxy S10E also has a conventional fingerprint scanner mounted on the power button. It has dual rear cameras consisting of one 12MP wide (77-degree field of view) sensor and a secondary 16MP ultra-wide (123-degree field of view) sensor. And it has a much smaller 3,100mAh battery.

Major bug in IRCTC can allow hackers cancel train tickets booked by passengers: Top facts

IBTimes India/YouTube

For last the few years, Indian Railways Catering & Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has made headlines for wrong reasons particularly related customer data leaks on its websites and how slow it takes time to fix it. And yet, the state-run firm seems to have learnt any lessons, as a new report has emerged that there is a flaw in the IRCTC that would allow hackers to cancel train tickets of the passenger without notice.

Fossbytes citing Ronnie T Baby, a cybersecurity enthusiast and a student at Karunya University has claimed that IRCTC despite having Captcha, a protocol to differentiate a human from a computer-based cyber attack is still vulnerable to hacking and cause inconvenience to the consumers. Thanks to innumerable attempts options to reset a password for the ticket bookers, a cybercriminal can use brute-force technique to crack open their account and cancel the booked tickets.

Major bug in IRCTC can allow hackers cancel train tickets booked by passengers: Top facts

Yes, even if the user receives One Time Password (OTP) every time to reset a password can be gained by a cybercriminal using a sophisticated algorithm that can generate millions of number codes in quick time and hack the account. Since Railways is using 6-digit OTP, the algorithm can easily bring 999,999 combinations, which will one correct password and help criminals to log in to the consumer account.

Thankfully, Railways, unlike before has, reportedly fixed the glitch that allows users the innumerable attempts to log in to the account despite repeated wrong password and OTP.

In a related development, Indian Oil Corporation-owned Indane, one of the biggest Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) suppliers in India faced similar glitch on its website. It caters to more than 90 million customers, but apparently, its weak website and mobile app security, it allowed an ethical hacker to pull several millions of customer details and Aadhaar details, in addition, to hundreds of distributers information.As per the latest reports, it has been fixed.

Samsung Galaxy A50 in Prism White photographed in the wild

The Samsung Galaxy A50 will come in the same Prism White color as the S10 flagships. Or maybe something very similar – you can clearly see the mother of pearl style iridescence in the photo below, though the light forms S-shaped curves.

According to a previous leak, the A50 will be available in White, Black and Blue, which may mean that the premium mid-ranger will also borrow the Prism Black and Prism Blue colors from the flagships. We’ve seen the Blue color, which seemed different from the S10 blue color.

The Galaxy A50 will feature a triple camera on its back 25MP main (f/1.7 OIS), 8MP ultra-wide and 5MP depth sensor. So, it won’t get a telephoto camera.

As for the front, there will be a 6.4” 1080p+ Super AMOLED display with a teardrop notch (Infinity U) and a 25MP selfie camera living inside.
