Realme 3 to launch in India today: Expected specs, price and how to watch livestreamRealme 3 to launch in India today: Expected specs, price and how to watch livestream

first_imgRealme is al set to launch its first smartphone for 2019, and the company has already confirmed that it will bet the Realme 3. The successor to last year’s popular Realme 2 will boast of upgrades to the design and hardware as Realme looks to further capture the market share in India. The company has had a terrific start last year, launching a series of phones that have all received favorable reviews from customers and reviewers alike. In 2019, the company will look to bring out phones that abide by the company’s philosophy of “style meets power.” The Realme 3 will look to bring just that when it goes official on Monday, March 4.Realme has been teasing several new features about the Realme 3 over the past few days. From a gradient design language to a new Nightscape camera mode, and from a Helio P70 chipset to ColorOS 6.0, Realme has certainly been talking up the Realme 3. The company is holding an event in New Delhi, which is set to kick off at 12:30pm. You will be able to catch the live stream of the event on Realme’s website.Based on what we know so far, the Realme 3 will being an updated design and hardware compared to the Realme 2. The company has already confirmed a dewdrop display on the Realme 3, which means the notch is in the shape of a water droplet, as opposed to the wide iPhone X-like notch on the Realme 2. This means you can expect a large display, and more screen real estate on the Realme 2, perhaps something similar to the Realme 2 Pro.advertisementThe Realme 3 will be powered by a 2.1GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P70 chipset. You may remember that this is the same chipset that powers the Realme U1 as well, and we were quite satisfied with the performance and speed of the chipset at the time. Realme claims the Helio P70 offers a 40 per cent lower power consumption, 30 per cent fast download speeds and 3 per cent better multi-core CPU performance compared to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660. We still do not have any information regarding the RAM and storage capacities, and neither do we have details on its storage expandability as well.Realme has also confirmed that the Realme 3 will come with a 4,230mAh battery, which sounds pretty beefy and you can expect the company to tout a long-lasting battery life with this one. As for the cameras, we know the Realme 3 will sport a dual camera setup on the back and a single camera housed in the notch up front, but the configuration is still a mystery. That being said, Realme is teasing a Nightscape feature on the Realme 3, which seems to hint at a low-light photography mode that should offer better performance in the dark. Lastly, the Realme 3 could also be the brand’s first phone to come with gradient colours, perhaps a purple gradient as per one of the latest teasers.The Realme 3 will be available on Flipkart post its launch, and we should know its price and availability details during the event later today. The company is teasing an “unbelievable price” for the Realme 3, which means you can expect something around Rs 10,000 or below if the phone is expected to slot in between the Realme C-series and Realme U-series. Stay tuned to this space to know more about the Realme 3.ALSO READ | Realme 3 leaks in live photo ahead of March 4 India launchlast_img read more

first_img Next No regrets if Renault are chasing Red Bull, says Daniel RicciardoDaniel Ricciardo will raise plenty of cheers if he beats his former Red Bull teammates in Melbourne next week but the new Renault driver will not be throwing any toys out of the pram if the opposite happens.advertisement Reuters LondonMarch 8, 2019UPDATED: March 8, 2019 09:35 IST Daniel Ricciardo has joined Renault from Rebd Bull for 2019 F1 season (Photo tweeted by @danielricciardo)HIGHLIGHTSDaniel Ricciardo will raise plenty of cheers if he beats his former Red Bull teammates in Melbourne next weekRicciardo said the main aim for the season ahead was simply to make progress”As long as we make inroads, that’s got to be a pretty successful year,” Ricciardo saidDaniel Ricciardo will raise plenty of cheers if he beats his former Red Bull teammates in Melbourne next week but the new Renault driver will not be throwing any toys out of the pram if the opposite happens.The Australian’s move to the French manufacturer team at the end of last year was a long term play for the Perth native, a home hero now in yellow overalls ahead of the season-opening race.”I was aware when I signed the deal here that it was very realistic that, at least come Melbourne, they (Red Bull) are going to be in front,” said Ricciardo when asked about the immediate prospects.”Because I in a way expect it, it’s not going to be a shock or anything like that.”I’m not going to be bitter if they beat us in Melbourne. I feel now we’re still on a bit of a different journey,” added the 29-year-old.Former champions Renault, who won titles with Fernando Alonso in 2005-06 and powered Red Bull and their German driver Sebastian Vettel to four double titles in a row between 2010-2013, were fourth overall last season.Red Bull were third behind champions Mercedes and Ferrari, with Ricciardo and Max Verstappen each winning two races and have since switched to Honda engines.The evidence from testing suggested Honda had got on top of the performance and reliability problems that have plagued them in the past.”I know probably a lot of people think ‘Ah, if he were to beat Red Bull how good would that be? Sticking it to them’. But it’s honestly not like that. If we could overcome any of those top three I’d be stoked,” said Ricciardo.advertisement”Seeing what I’ve seen so far (at Renault) I think there’s enough resources to get into that world. So I don’t think that’s unattainable for us.”It might not be this year, but it’s not a permanent handicap, so to speak.”RUNNING FROM A FIGHTHad Ricciardo stayed at Red Bull, and they were clear about wanting him to, he would have continued to fight for star billing with Verstappen, the 21-year-old Dutch driver considered a future champion.The likeable Australian sees himself in a similar light but risked being considered increasingly as a number two alongside the favoured son.Ricciardo told reporters before the start of testing that his decision to leave was due to a ‘kaleidoscope’ of different pieces, however.There was a desire to repeat Lewis Hamilton’s success in recognising the potential of a major manufacturer when he moved from McLaren to Mercedes and also annoyance at how Red Bull treated him after an incident in Baku last season.The team held both Ricciardo and Verstappen equally to blame for a collision that the Australian still holds was mainly Verstappen’s fault.”We both got a talking to, putting it politely. But in my eyes I guess the incident itself I felt I was not really in the wrong,” he said. “I guess the way it was handled at the time didn’t sit too well with me.”Team boss Christian Horner suggested Ricciardo was “running from a fight” in leaving but the Perth driver, whose new German team mate Nico Hulkenberg has yet to stand on the podium in 156 starts, denied that.”I love a good fight,” he said. “It wasn’t about Max. I can understand why they’d say that, but it’s wrong.”Ricciardo said the main aim for the season ahead was simply to make progress, for the team to continue on an upward trajectory.”As long as we make inroads, that’s got to be a pretty successful year,” he said.Also Watch:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Quebec government puts end to oil and gas exploration on Anticosti IslandQuebec government puts end to oil and gas exploration on Anticosti Island

QUEBEC — The Quebec government announced Friday there won’t be any further oil and gas exploration on Anticosti Island, putting the controversial drilling project to rest.Natural Resources Minister Pierre Arcand said a decision was taken to protect the island’s natural character and support its bid to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which the province has formally backed.“It was clear to us that it was very difficult both to exploit the hydrocarbons and at the same time to apply to UNESCO for Anticosti,” Arcand said in Montreal.The project, conceived under the previous Parti Quebecois government, had become a political hot potato after Premier Philippe Couillard’s Liberals came to power in 2014.In 2014, the PQ announced a $115 million investment, a first step towards gas exploration on Anticosti Island, estimating a potential of 46 billion barrels.The exploration work was aimed at determining the hydrocarbon potential, in terms of quality and volume, on the eastern Quebec island.However, Couillard increasingly distanced himself from the project after attending the international climate conference in Paris in 2015.The premier expressed concerns about environmental risks and had questioned the project’s economic viability, repeatedly noting it was reached under the previous PQ government.The provincial government said Friday that negotiations are underway to compensate a number of companies for cancelling their contracts.Deals have been reached with Junex, Corridor and Maurel & Prom for a total compensation of $41.4 million.“These agreements demonstrate the seriousness of our government and our commitment to respect the signature of the previous government,” Arcand said.Discussions are ongoing with Quebec City-based Petrolia Inc. (TSX-V:PEA) and Trans American.The island located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence is home to deep canyons, impressive waterfalls and numerous caves.The head of a local environmental group said the risks of drilling there would have far outweighed any potential economic benefit.“Anticosti is a jewel, a place worthy of being part of UNESCO’s world heritage,” said Steven Guilbeault of Equiterre.“Allowing oil companies to draw millions of litres of water, to dig thousands of oil wells, to inject chemicals in the soil would have been a grave error.”Many local residents were opposed to oil and gas activity on the island and fear the environmental impact and dangers for fish and wildlife.John Pineault, the mayor of the Quebec municipality and a fervent opponent of the drilling, says the firms must now restore the sites to what they were.“Let them clean up their sites to put this behind us,” he said in an interview.Pineault also thanked groups that had supported his efforts to have drilling stopped: First Nations, environmentalists and labour unions.The Canadian Press read more

Bishop appeals against mosque in AthensBishop appeals against mosque in Athens

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A group led by Bishop Seraphim of Piraeus filed a complaint this week with the Council of State, the country’s highest administrative court, in a bid to halt government plans to construct a mosque in the Athenian neighborhood of Votanikos. The bishop claims that the project, which is budgeted at 846,000 euros, is unsustainable, given the country’s financial state, and a threat to social cohesion. “Building a mosque in the center of Athens will not only damage public order and the morality of Greek society but also trigger a series of events which will, with mathematical certainty, dismantle the cohesion of the Greek nation as a Christian Orthodox people,” he said. The mosque, which will not feature minarets, will be housed in a renovated property which used to belong to the navy and the project is to be funded by the state.

Olla Kala OKOlla Kala OK

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram This week marked the 174th anniversary of the word OK. Regarded as one of the highest used words in the English language, the most frequently used and most typed word on the planet, the history of the word is heavily debated by linguists all over the word; and Greece is in the running. Many historians believe that OK began more than 2000 years ago, as an acronym of the saying olla kala, which translates to everything is fine. Whatever the case, OK is set to have a bigger celebration next year when it turns 175, and hopefully on its birthday the debate on where and when the word started will be put to be bed once and for all.last_img

Apple called Spotify’s claims “misleading.”The iPhone maker didn’t respond to CNET’s request for comment on Saturday, but a spokeswoman for the company told the paper that Apple treats all apps the same, including those from competitors. The apps in question were called out because they could grab too much data from a user’s device, she said, and the timing had nothing to do with the release of Apple’s screen-time and parental controls features.”Our incentive is to have a vibrant app ecosystem that provides consumers access to as many quality apps as possible,” she told the Times.Originally published April 27 at 2:28 p.m.Update on April 28 at 7:17 p.m. PT: Adds Apple statement.

Sarah Tew/CNET Apple is facing further scrutiny over whether it’s using its hold on the App Store to hurt competitors’ products.A Saturday report in The New York Times says that in the past year, Apple has targeted 11 of the 17 most downloaded third-party apps designed to help phone users limit screen time or oversee their children’s phone use. Apple either removed the apps from the App Store outright or restricted them in some way, the Times reports.Apple on Sunday refuted the report in a statement posted in its newsroom. In it, the company said it recently removed several parental control apps from the App Store because “they put users’ privacy and security at risk.” It had noticed some apps installed invasive mobile device management software on devices. Some apps fixed the issue and remained in the App Store. Those that didn’t were removed.

first_imgTed Murphy reads winning bids for state and federal lease petroleum sales. (Photo by Elizabeth Harball, Alaska’s Energy Desk)State and federal oil and gas lease sales held Dec. 14 in Anchorage saw an unexpected surge of interest in the North Slope.Listen Now“The bids started to come in and they kept running down to my office going, ‘you’re not believing this,’” Ted Murphy, Associate Director of the Bureau of Land Management said. “We were surprised.”High bids in the federal oil and gas lease sale totaled $18.8 million — a huge increase from last year’s total of about $790,000.The sale was for land in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska, where ConocoPhillips recently began developing the first two projects on the 24 million-acre chunk of federal land. ConocoPhillips snapped up the lion’s share of federal leases. But unlike last year, the company had some competition. It had to outbid a few smaller players like Colorado-based Armstrong Oil and Gas. Armstrong Oil and Gas is also pursuing development of what could be a major oil field on the North Slope with its partner Repsol, a Spanish company.Armstrong and ConocoPhillips also placed successful bids for state land on the North Slope. The Houston-based company Burgundy Xploration, LLC also bought up a significant number of state tracts.According to officials, this year’s state lease sale is one of the most significant Alaska has seen in nearly two decades. The state saw 402 bids for tracts on the North Slope, and winning bids totaled nearly $17 million. Including lease sales in the Beaufort Sea area, the state took in nearly $17.8 million. Last year, the state took in $9.5 million. The state said it was the second largest sale, by acreage, since 1998.Alaska Natural Resources Commissioner Andy Mack said he is very pleased with the results.Protesters in front of BLM offices in downtown Anchorage. (Photo: Elizabeth Harball, Alaska’s Energy Desk)“Very exciting stuff and it seems to be continuing the intense interest in that region,” Mack said.Governor Bill Walker also praised this year’s lease sale, calling it “great news for the state and the industry.”But several environmental groups objected to the lease sales. Nicole Whittington-Evans of the Wilderness Society said she’s worried about how oil development on BLM land could affect one North Slope community in particular.“The leases that were sold today are further surrounding the community of Nuiqsut in important subsistence use areas,” Whittington-Evans said.Another group, the Center for Biological Diversity, gathered outside BLM’s offices to protest the federal lease sale, saying it was inconsistent with the Obama administration’s goal to curb climate change.last_img read more

first_img Comments   Share   What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Each of the last seven NFC West championships have been won by either the Seattle Seahawks or Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks were division’s dominant team since 2004, winning four straight crowns before the Cardinals took over in 2008 and 2009. They reclaimed the top spot in 2010 while the Cardinals slipped back to the basement. Needless to say, the Cardinals understand the importance of Sunday’s game against the defending division champs. Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation “We need to be able to get this W just to reestablish ourselves in the NFC West,” receiver Larry Fitzgerald said. “It’s an important division game for us, we all understand the ramifications of that.”While a Week 3 game doesn’t exactly have the appearance of one that could decide a season, a win for the Cardinals would show that the team is much improved from last year’s squad and is ready to be the division’s top dog once again. But it won’t be easy.“They’re the defending West champions,” Fitzgerald said. “We have a lot of respect for this team and their staff, and they play really hard.“We know we’re going to have a tough fight in front of us.”If the Cards are victorious Sunday they may very well be able to put the Seahawks in the rear-view mirror as they head towards another NFC West championship.Arizona Sports’ Kyndra de St. Aubin contributed to this reportcenter_img Top Stories D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right awaylast_img read more
