Samsung Galaxy S21 series will probably debut in India a few weeks after the global launch, which is on January 14, 2021. According to the rumors, the Galaxy S21 series already accepts special blind pre-orders in the Indian market through Samsung’s offline store, located in Bengaluru. At an upfront fee of Rs. 2,000, the pre-bookings are being made, and the customers will receive their placed orders on the day of launch. Moreover, it is reported that there will be some pre-launch offers put forward in order to attack the masses for pre-booking the new models of the Galaxy series.

Samsung Galaxy S21 Series Specifications

According to some sources from Twitter, the upcoming Galaxy S21 series is going to feature a completely new ultrasonic fingerprint sensor, reportedly 1.77 times larger than the ones on the S20 series, having a scanning surface of 64mm. The fingerprint scanner is most likely to act twice as quickly as the last model series and even claims to unlock the device in just one tap. It is already known to us that Samsung introduced the feature of in-display fingerprint sensor technology last year, with the Galaxy S10 series, by using an ultrasonic sensor rather than the traditional option of using an optical sensor for the detection of 3-D ridges present in the fingerprints, for identifying the user. However, the attempt did not succeed, and shortly after its launch, some of the users noticed some flaws in the sensor, but the problem was fixed soon with the help of a software update.

Moreover, it is also claimed that the upcoming Galaxy S21 series will have the new Exynos 2100 for worldwide markets. On the other hand, the US variant is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC. There will be a lot of similarities between the models— Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21+, featuring triple rear cameras and a flat AMOLED display design. However, the Galaxy S21 Ultra is expected to come with quad rear camera sensors and a curved display, along with a periscope lens as laser autofocus. There will be a 12-megapixel primary camera, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide snapper, and a 64-megapixel telephoto shooter.

As per the FCC certification, the device has features such as Bluetooth v5.0, Wi-Fi 6, and NFC connectivity. There might not be any earphones or charger available in the set, following other companies’ trend in the market. However, the upcoming model will at least support a 25W fast charging technology. The device is most probably coming with a display size of 6.30-inch and will run on Android 11 Operating System, with an average battery capacity of 4000mAh.

General Hospital: Is Emme Rylan’s Character Lulu Leaving the Series Permanently?

Rumors say that Lulu’s character, from General Hospital, has exited the longest-running show. Played by Emme Rylan, the character has remained one of the most loved ones from the show. She had joined the cast on March 6, 2013, replacing Julie Marie Berman as Lulu Spencer, and after more than seven years, she has finally decided to part her way from the show. It is quite obvious for a show to undergo a lot of cast changes judging from the fact that it has been running for more than 57 years and is still on-air.

Other than her, another cast member is going to mark his exit from the show— William DeVry. He has been portraying the role of Julian Jerome since 2013 and has recently taken to Twitter to confirm the news. According to Soapdirt, the exit of so many characters from the show is because of some budget cuts resulting from the lack of advertisement revenue during the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the show’s ratings have also dropped in recent times, even with all of the spectators being stuck inside.

After being caught in an explosion, two of the show’s main characters, Dev and Dustin Phillips, Lulu’s current love interest, has been knocked out. However, we are sure of the fact that Lulu has won over the explosion and has come out alive, though she loses her consciousness soon after whispering “I love you” in Dante’s arms. She might just be in a state of coma, or it might be that she had gained her consciousness soon and has fled with Dante— as per some of the fan theories since both of them are going to leave the show. However, we must not be upset since the exit can only be a temporary one, judging from the way the characters have left the show. We can at least expect a recast in the future, or at the very least, a temporary appearance.

Pubg Mobile Eager to Mark its Return in India: No Response from MEITY

One of the most expected news of the year for all the gamers in India is when will PUBG make its return to the country. On September 2, 2020, the most popular game with the most download counts was banned in India over security concerns. According to the government, several Chinese apps, including Tik Tok, We Chat, Shein, and others, were engaged in such activities that were prejudicial to the country’s sovereignty.

According to the recent rumors, the mobile version of PUBG will not re-enter India anytime sooner since there is no response from the Indian government regarding the company’s request. PUBG promoters have requested The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) for a meeting in order to discuss the relaunch of PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite in India. However, the ministry officials have paid no heed to the proposal, even though the other side is desperate to relaunch India’s game. Judging from the current situation, it is unlikely for the game to return to India this year. At the very least, we can expect it to arrive in February or March next year.

 

If you are not aware that PUBG Mobile is so desperate to launch themselves in India, you are at the right place. The game is not available to download either on the Play Store or on App Store. The game earns a huge profit from thousands of players in India. Because of the ban issued by the Indian Government, Tencent faced a drop in 2% of the shares, accounting for a loss of around 13 to 14 billion US dollars, which is a considerable sum of money.

PUBG Mobile India Relaunch
PUBG Mobile

If you are still wondering why PUBG PC and PUBG Console are still available for download, we would like to inform you that these are developed by PUBG Corporation, which is owned by a video game company named BlueHole, the headquarter of which is located in South Korea, and not in China. Therefore, you can still play the game on a compatible PC or gaming consoles, including PlayStation 4 and Xbox in India. On the other hand, PUBG Mobile and PUBG Mobile Lite are partially owned by Tencent Games, a Chinese company, even though the servers of Bluehole are based in South Korea.

There are some other differences between the two versions as well, including the graphics of the two. The mobile version is of relatively lower resolution and is compatible with almost all the smartphones of different brands in the world. On the other hand, the PC version’s graphics resolution is a lot smoother, giving us an HD gaming experience. Even though we can alter the mobile version’s graphics settings to some better quality, it will still fall short of the quality of the PC version.

Realme Race To Come With Snapdragon 888 Chipset – First Look Revealed

Recently, the rumors of a new flagship device by Realme have taken over the internet. It is officially confirmed that Realme’s upcoming device will be one of the firsts, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset. The announcement was made this Tuesday, at the annual Snapdragon Tech Summit of Qualcomm. Coded as ‘Realme Race,’ the design and the phone’s first look has not been revealed from the official site; however, an image said to be achieved by some reliable source has been leaked on the internet, hinting at the speculations and design of the phone.

Although an official launch date is not revealed, the phone is expected to launch globally in 2021. The news of Realme Race spread after the confirmation of Mi 11 marking the Snapdragon 888 chipset’s worldwide launch by Xiaomi. OPPO, Vivo, OnePlus, and ASUS are some of the other brands which are expected to come with a Snapdragon 888 chipset in early 2021.

Realme Race Specifications

As indicated in the image, Realme will ditch its regular camera style and switch to a circular module situated at the smartphone center, with a curved rear panel. A little similar to Nokia Lumia 1020, the phone will come up with four camera sensors placed inside the circular module with an LED flash sitting close to it. The company hasn’t given away much information about the specifications that will be there in Realme Race, except that it will be a 5G smartphone, capable of delivering lightning-fast performance and the best gaming experience owing to the presence of Snapdragon 888 chipset. As much as the color variants are concerned, we can say that the upcoming device will have at least one white variant, with a glossy, iridescent finish.

Keeping aside the design, there are a lot of other things that we should care about. A screenshot has been shared by the publication disclosing the phone’s model number, ‘RMX2022’, which will prove to be worthy in the future, to get more information on the device from several certification websites. The processor is already known to us, so we are not going to discuss it anymore. The smartphone will also have a storage variant of 12GB RAM, along with the other toned-down ones we usually get, including the 6GB and 8GB RAM variants. The internal memory is expected to come in 64 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB. Since Realme is heard of updating the OS to a new version already, into the recent models, the upcoming phone is expected to operate on Realme UI 2.0, or more specifically, Android 11 Operating System.

It is still unknown if the flagship smartphone will support an Ultra Dart fast charger of 125W, which is very much probable since Realme Race is going to be a big launch for the company. If this prediction comes true, it will serve as a huge upgrade from the standard 65W charger, which is also available supported by other smartphone brands in the market currently.

The Undoing Season 2: Is HBO’s Hit Drama Series Return for a Second Season?

The second season of The Undoing has not received a green light yet, and it is more likely not to be renewed again. The show was planned only for six episodes that premiered on October 25, 2020, and aired till November 29, 2020, (originally scheduled to release on May 10, 2020) on HBO in the United States, and the show makers don’t seem to be in a mood to think about another season, at least for the time being. However, it is still early to predict anything like this; after all, the first season ended just a few days ago. If the show at all gets renewed, we can expect the production to commence in the latter half of 2021 and finally hit the television screens in Spring 2023 or Fall 2023.

You can watch the episodes of the first season, in case you haven’t, on the official website of HBO, as well as on their mobile app. Other alternatives to catch up with the show include Disney+Hotstar and Amazon Prime Video. If it is not available in your country, you can change the VPN and enjoy it. We do not encourage watching any show on pirated sites and unofficial platforms since it is illegal, and even keep the original makers of the show deprived of their gain. Season one was filmed in Kingston, New York, New York City, and the North Fork of Long Island.

The Undoing Official Cast and Crew

The series cast Hugh Grant as Jonathan Fraser and Nicole Kidman as Grace Fraser in lead roles and other important cast members of the show include— Édgar Ramírez as Detective Joe Mendoza, Lily Rabe as Sylvia Steinetz, Noah Jupe as Henry Fraser, Ismael Cruz Córdova as Fernando Alves, Matilda De Angelis as Elena Alves, Edan Alexander as Miguel Alves, Fala Chen as Jolene McCall, Annaleigh Ashford as Alexis Young, Michael Devine as Detective Paul O’Rourke, Tarik Davis as Michael Hoffman, Vedette Lim as Amanda Emory, Maria Dizzia as Diane Porter, Rosemary Harris as Janet Fraser, Jeremy Shamos as Robert Connaver, Jason Kravits as Dr. Stuart Rosenfeld, Janel Moloney as Sally Maybury, Donald Sutherland as Franklin Reinhardt, Adriane Lenox as Judge Layla Scott, Sofie Gråbøl as Catherine Stamper, Matt McGrath as Joseph Hoffman, Tracee Chimo Pallero as Rebecca Harkness, Noma Dumezweni as Haley Fitzgerald and Douglas Hodge as Robert Adelman.

The Undoing Season 2 Spoilers

In the last episode of The Undoing, we witnessed young Henry discovering the weapon that killed his father and how he ran the weapon through the dishwasher in order to protect Jonathan from prosecution. However, Grace takes the stand while performing psychological magic approved by Harvard University, indicating that Jonathan is mentally very unstable and can do a lot more than killing Elena Alves. Moreover, Jonny ties Henry to the passenger seat and drives off for Canada, begging his son to recall his real legacy. He almost tries to take his life away, but later changes his decision for Grace when she runs to save her boy.

In the upcoming season, we may witness the after-effects of a massive trauma in the Fraser household, which were capable of sending
trembling waves throughout their lives. We will also get to know if Henry has inherited his father’s violent tendencies anyhow, and if yes, how will it be addressed by Grace.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro: Camera and Display Specifications Revealed

Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro is expected to launch in the Indian market in February 2021. Although the news about the smartphones Xiaomi Mi 11 and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro is not official yet, a lot of rumors and leaks suggest that these upcoming Xiaomi flagship phones are really on the way. According to the sources, some new display features are expected to be a part of Mi 11 Pro, some of which have already been noticed in MIUI 12 beta code, like AI upscaling, MEMC, and SDR-to-HDR up-mapping. Although MEMC tech has already been introduced in many of Xiaomi’s smartphones, which includes Mi 10 Pro and Mi 10T Pro, responsible for using motion compensation software in order to provide a smoother moving picture, AI upscaling, for detection of an object before the shooter and provide HDR effect to it; and SDR-to-HDR up-mapping, for Ultra Vision display; will be a completely new addition.

Tipster Digital Chat Station has revealed some new data about the display of the handset, according to which, Mi 11 Pro will come with a QHD+ resolution panel and a 120 Hz refresh rate. This feature will be good enough to give competition to the existing handsets, for example, the OnePlus 8 Pro and Oppo Find X2, which have a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Moreover, it will serve as an upgrade from the FHD+ resolution present in Mi 10 Pro has a refresh rate of 90 Hz.

The upcoming smartphone model, Mi 11 Pro, may feature some amazing camera sensors. The main lens can capture a picture of approximately 50 Megapixels via 4-in-1 pixel binning, making the primary camera of 192 Megapixels and even approach 200 Megapixels. The tipster also revealed that the handset’s telephoto sensor might produce images of 12 Megapixels, indicating the presence of a 48 Megapixels telephoto lens onboard. However, this information has not been confirmed by Digital Chat Station. If we believe the rumors, Xiaomi Mi 11 and Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro will come with a 48-Megapixels ultra-wide-angle lens.

The device comes up with a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and a pixel density of 386ppi. For biometric authentication, it features an in-display fingerprint sensor.

For the smooth movement of multitasking operations, it comes with a large 12GB RAM, and an internal memory of 256 GB, and a powerful battery capacity of 5000 mAh. However, one drawback of the device is that it does not have an option of expanding the memory. As far as the price of the device is concerned, they will be priced somewhat near the last handsets’ price within the series.

The handsets’ specifications are not something that we have got from the official handle; they are entirely subjected to change. We will update you as we receive new updates about the devices.

Although it might be too early to state this, a 120W fast charging will probably be introduced with Mi 11 Pro. The smartphone manufacturer has stated the existence of an 80W wireless charger, which is capable of charging a 4000 mAh battery fully in 19 minutes. Therefore, we can expect its appearance too.

Impractical Jokers Season 9: Will the show return?

The ninth installment of Impractical Jokers is all set to premiere on February 14, 2021, on truTV, at 10:00 pm. Earlier, it was expected to air from Summer 2020, judging by the fact that the show arrives around three months after the wrapping up of the preceding season; but has been postponed due to the ill-effects of the Coronavirus pandemic. The season was renewed on July 19, 2020, while the third season was still on-air, at the fan event of the 4th annual Impractical Jokers during a special live-streamed Question & Answer session in San Diego.

The series first premiered on December 15, 2011, and wrapped up on May 3, 2012, after airing 16 episodes. It has been following the unspoken rule of creating a season with 26 episodes since 2015 now.

Later, they decided to create a show, which they originally named ‘Mission: Uncomfortable’ but was ultimately named as ‘Impractical Jokers,’ and now they serve as the main jokers on the series. It is for sure that they will reprise their roles for the ninth season as well. The show is narrated by Drew Patterson, Erik Falcon, and Bill St. James. The show also features several guests to be a part of the show, which varies from season to season. In the last season, Tristin Mays, Casey Jost, Yanni, Jay and Silent Bob, Jeff Daniels, Rob Emmer, Dave Jacobs, and Steel Panther made guest appearances.

The show is a hidden camera TV reality series, which involves a set of competitive dare games, performed by four jokers, in which each of the jokers is remarked with a thumbs up or a thumbs down based on their performance. The person who fails to complete the dare is bound to perform a particular inferior practical dare as a punishment. The best part of the show is that it happens on-spot, without any prior scripting. Therefore, the members are not aware of the dares before they land to perform them on random people.

The jokers explain to the people present there about the challenge they are going to face, which will be recorded on the hidden cameras, and the outcome if they fail to perform it. Usually, a challenge is performed in a public location like a park or some stores around NYC. The punishment at the end of each episode is more humiliating, disgusting, scary, and painful than the original challenge. Moreover, the members cannot refuse to perform the punishment; else, the jokers will have to leave the show. What makes the show different from the others is the friendship prevailing among the four comedians and creating a chilled environment for the audience to laugh and enjoy.

The Legend of Korra Ending Explanation – Our Point of View

Avatar: The Last Airbender’s spin-off show, ‘The Legend of Korra’ received a lot of love and appreciation from the spectators as it carried the power and success of the original series when it first aired. Not only did it deliver amazing content, but also promoted newness. The series first premiered on April 14, 2012, with twelve episodes, on Nickelodeon and concluded on December 19, 2014, with its fourth season.

The titular character of the series, Korra, has been voiced over by Janet Varney since the very first season, while the characters of Mako, Bolin, Tenzin, Asami Sato, and Lin Beifong, and Jinoran has been voiced over by Janet Varney, David Faustino, P. J. Byrne, J. K. Simmons, Seychelle Gabriel, Mindy Sterling, and Kiernan Shipka respectively. Dee Bradley Baker has voiced over the characters of Tarrlok, Pabu, Oogi and Naga.

However, the ending of the series has raised certain debates by the spectators of the show, especially about the unorthodox relationship of Asami and Korra.

The Legend of Korra Plot

Set seventy years after the events of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender,’ the American animated TV series, ‘The Legend of Korra’ follows the story of Korra, who is an Avatar and a reincarnated version of the protagonist from the original series. She is responsible for maintaining order in Republic City, which is particularly a sovereign state created as a consequence of the Hundred Year War. In the first season, we witness Korra joining forces with Tenzin, Aang’s son and sharpens her air bending skilss. As she masters her abilities, she sets out to conquer Amon, who is the major antagonist of the story, the leader of an anti-bending gang known as ‘Equalists’.

In the next book, which was titled ‘Spirits,’ Korra lives under the guidance of Unalaq, her uncle, who is a master of water-bending, serving as the leader of both the Northern and Southern Water Tribes. Hiding his true intentions from her, Unalaq persistently strives to release the spirit of darkness and disorder, Vastu, from the world of Spirits, and bring destruction to the Republic City. In the third book, titled ‘Change,’ a brand new villain, Zaheer, who is the leader of the rebellion group, ‘Red Lotus’ shows up— marking the establishment of an epic between Korra and himself. It is also the most crucial arc of the journey of Korra, marking her first defeat. The last book of the series was titled, ‘Balance’.

Amon and Unalaq both taught Korra to be a hero and to be the best version of herself, however, none of them saw it coming that she can be defeated once too— even she herself began to believe that she is unbeatable. However, after her first defeat, the confident Korra was lost, as she began to struggle in believing in herself again. While she strives to better herself, her former friend Kuvira, establishes a totalitarian Earth Empire. She faces her second tragic defeat when she confronts Kuvira, but, surprisingly, Zaheer sends a helping aid for her.

In part two’s finale of season four, Korra with her Avatar crew, sets out to block Kuvira’s mecha, that featured spirit energy super-cannon. To guarantee success, they seek aid from Asami’s father, Hiroshi Sato, who advises them to attack the mecha from inside. In order to help the team of Avatar and saving the city, the former prisoner tries his best and sacrifices his own life while doing so, but manages to disable the mecha, forcing Kuvira to flee away. However, Kuvira does not lose hope and rushes to the spirit wilds, and discovers a super-cannon there intending to use it against Korra. Surprisingly, the canon was defective but before it exploded, Korra saves herself. The explosion leads to the ejection of enough spirit energy for the opening of a new portal to the Spirit World. Korra and her team finally sets everything right and the ending scenes, Korea and Asami looks at each other with eyes full of love, and gradually drift into the world of spirits.

The ending might seem a little ambiguous since the show never openly implied Korra and Asami sharing a romantic relationship. However, if we take a closer look, we will find some hints given by the creators throughout the show, in order to support its development. Their feelings might have appeared when Korra was shattered at her defeat by Zaheer and the one whose presence she craved for was only Asami, even though Mako and Bolin kept writing letters to ask about her well being, to which she never replied. Even Bryan Konietzko, the director of the series has himself made it clear through Tumblr, stating that it is an obvious choice for the writers to pair a boy and girl together, however, he wanted to showcase a different relationship which not only is based on plain romance, but also a relationship where both the parties mutually inspire one another to live.
