Samsung Galaxy S10 Specs Leaks

We might have just had our first proper look at the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, as leaked renders seemingly show the phone in full.

Shared by reliable leaker @OnLeaks on behalf of 91mobiles, the renders show a phone that looks different to the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, but not necessarily for the better.

The bezels both above and below the screen look slimmer here, but are still present, and that’s despite also having a cut-out in the screen for the front-facing cameras.

It has been rumored for a while that the Samsung Galaxy S10 range might have a pinhole camera in the screen but, well, because there are two lenses here this is a bit more than a pinhole.

Rather it’s a larger oblong shape that could almost be a small notch if it extended from above the display rather than being cut into it. It’s an odd look that we’re not sure is any better than a notch.

The back meanwhile has a horizontally arranged triple-lens camera and is otherwise fairly plain, though as well as seemingly coming in black, you can also see the phone in an ‘Ice Blue’ color that has a gradient finish, a bit like the twilight shade offered by phones like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

A bigger screen and a headphone port

Other details in these images include a 3.5mm headphone port, USC-C port and speaker on the bottom edge, and a design that looks a bit more angular than the S9 range, leaving it looking more like the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.

The source also includes some information about the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus. Apparently the curved AMOLED screen is 6.4 inches (as we’ve heard before) and has a QHD resolution, similar to its predecessor.

The rear cameras apparently include a standard, wide-angle and telephoto lens, while the dimensions are apparently 157.5 x 75.0 x 7.8mm, rising to 9mm where the cameras stick out on the back. That would make it a similar size to the 158.1 x 73.8 x 8.5mm Galaxy S9 Plus – a phone with a slightly smaller screen than this is rumored to have.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus also apparently has an in-screen fingerprint scanner, a feature which has been heavily rumored. The source also says that the range’s iris scanner has been ditched in favor of a new version of face unlock.

As with any leaks we’d take all of this information with a pinch of salt, especially as these are the first renders we’ve seen of the phone.

However, while this arguably wouldn’t make for the nicest looking handset it is largely in line with the rumors we’ve heard, so the images and accompanying details may well be accurate. We should find out for sure in early 2019, possibly at MWC 2019.

Bare Full Design & Horizontal Camera Setup

While no concrete information for its launch date has surfaced so far, Samsung’s Galaxy S10 lineupis shaping up as a formidable bunch of smartphones according to recent rumors and reports. The Korean tech giant slowed down the pace of innovation on its iconic smartphone lineup recently, and as a result, it’s got quite a lot of ground to cover next year. With this in mind, we’ve got a major leak for the Samsung Galaxy S10 today that’s courtesy of a reliable source. Head over below for all the details.

CAD Renders And Vide For The Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus Leak And Show The Device From Different Angles

Samsung’s expected to launch at least three different Galaxy S10 smartphones this year. One of the devices is expected to be an entry-level smartphone that will not feature virtual fingerprint recognition, and come bearing a flat Infinity-O display panel. At the high-end, Samsung is rumored to launch a special S10 that will feature 5G connectivity. Today’s leak, however, is for the successor to this year’s Galaxy S9++, a.k.a the Galaxy S10+.

Courtesy of famous tipster Onleaks, we can now take a good look at high quality renders of the Samsung Galaxy S10+. This variant of the Galaxy S10 lineup has a triple camera setup at the back and a dual camera setup at the front. Additionally, the device also features Samsung’s brand new Infinity-O display panels.

The images provide several details for the Galaxy S10. Firstly, a lot of users will be delighted to see that the 3.5mm earphone jack is still present on a high-end Samsung gadget. This stands in opposition to some earlier rumors that have claimed that Samsung will remove the feature on its 2019 flagship smartphones. According to the leak, the Galaxy S10+ measures 157.5 x 75.0 x 7.8mm, and since there’s no fingerprint sensor present, we can safely assume that the gadget will also feature virtual fingerprint recognition.

The SIM card slot on the device is at the top, the volume and Bixby buttons at the left and the power button is present on the right side.  Finally, the rear triple camera setup is in a horizontal arrangement, and Samsung’s front camera setup also blends in well with the device’s display. The bottom bezel has shrunk considerably, and the gadget serves justice to a generational upgrade. Thoughts? Let us know what you think in the comments section below and stay tuned.

Robo 2.0 Box Office Collections Creates Record in the 1st Weekend

Despite the Madras High Court directing 37 internet service providers (ISPs) to block over 12,000 websites that showcase pirated versions of Tamil films, Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar-starrer 2.0 has been leaked online by TamilRockers.

In order to protect its film from piracy, Lyca Production — the maker of 2.0 — had filed a plea in Madras High Court to block such websites.

TamilRockers, which has been termed a bull that cannot be tamed, has given producers plenty of sleepless nights, going as far as openly posting links to watch new movies on the day they were released. 2.0 is its latest victim.

Major Tamil releases like Sarkar, Kaala, and Kabali have all suffered due to online piracy, particularly TamilRockers. The Tamil film industry is faced with a grave problem because multiple attempts to shut down the website in the past have failed.

Only last year, members of TamilRockers were booked and arrested by the anti-piracy cell for uploading pirated versions of Tamil, Telugu, English, Malayalam and other language films on their website. The site is said to have connections with international piracy rackets as well.

In fact, TamilRockers’ URL(s) have been suspended time and again, but its members simply change the domain name and the site continues to operate in full swing. People now ask TamilRockers for its new domain name openly on social media platforms.

The anonymous group is not so unknown anymore after the Tamil Nadu Producers Council and production houses Studio Green and Vishal Film factory published an advertisement in which they released pictures of two men who they claim are part of three piracy websites.

Tamil movie buffs have a strong liking for TamilRockers. Before the release of Rajinikanth’s Kabali, there was a sharp jump in demand for the film, especially due to the high ticket prices.

But the problem is not restricted to just Tamil films. The entire Indian film industry as a whole is fighting an unending battle against piracy.

Shortly after the release of Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju in June, the producers of the film had lodged a complaint with the cyber cell, stating the movie went viral via Facebook Live. This pushed the Maharashtra Cyber Cell to ban 11 websites that provided illegal weblinks for the film on Facebook Live.

Piracy is one of the major issues affecting the Indian film industry right now. According to an estimate by consultancy firm KPMG, it results in losses of revenue totalling around Rs 18,000 crore a year.

EY said in a report earlier this year that piracy has resulted in Indian films losing 10-30 percent of their overall revenue. The fast-paced adoption of internet across the country and affordable data plans have further enabled viewers to wait for the film and watch it on their mobile screen, it said.

According to a report titled ‘The Irdeto Global Consumer Piracy Threat’, India ranks fourth in the world for peer-to-peer downloading, with 965 million downloads between January 2017 and May 2018.

There have been several steps taken by the government to battle the piracy menace, and different industry associations have come together to work towards that end as well.

The Indian copyright law has provisions for digital rights management for protection of content on digital media. There have been multiple cases of high courts issuing John Doe orders to prevent websites suspected of engaging in piracy from accessing content.

The government has banned various websites that provide online streaming or torrent links to download pirated content. Even the warning on such websites has been updated to include viewing, downloading, exhibition and duplication of content as offences that are punishable under Section 63, 63-A, 65 and 65-A of the Copyright Act.

The law further states that these offences draw a punishment of up to three years in jail and a fine up to Rs 3 lakh. Also, the onus of committing the crime will be on the viewers if it can be proved that the infringement was done knowingly.

And yet, the Indian film industry is practically groping in the dark in its war against piracy. The entire value-chain, from producers to distributors to cinema owners, has been affected by instances of films being made available online within hours of their theatrical release. In some cases, films have even been leaked before their release dates.

Rajinikanth’s latest magnum opus ‘2.0’ (review)—released in 10,000 screens worldwide—has recorded box office collections of ₹70 crore on the 1st day, across Hindi, Tamil and Telugu versions, said trade experts, with numbers still trickling in. The Hindi version alone accounted for about ₹23 crore, a stellar performance that industry experts attributed to the presence of Akshay Kumar in the movie.

‘2.0’ has also notched up Chennai City’s highest ever 1st day box office collections. At ₹2.64 crore, the S.Shankar-directed film has beaten Diwali release ‘Sarkar’s ₹2.37 crore, reflecting Rajinikanth’s power on home ground. ‘2.0’ recorded ₹18.2 crore in box office collections from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana on the 1st day, and ₹8.25 crore in Karnataka. At ₹4.15 crore, ‘2.0’ is the fourth highest non-Malayalam opening day grosser in Kerala, after Vijay’s ‘Sarkar’ (₹5.62 crore), ‘Baahubali 2’ (₹5.45 crore) and ‘Mersal’ (₹4.65 crore).

According to trade website Box Office India, North India too has recorded good box office collection on the 1st day—with Delhi and Uttar Pradesh at ₹4.75-5 crore and East Punjab at ₹1.90 crore. East India has fared well too, with Bihar collecting around ₹1.25 crore on the 1st day.

Box Office India also said that the Hindi version of ‘2.0’, which released in 4,150 screens, registered about 40% occupancy on its opening day and notched up the eighth highest opening of the year, as far as Bollywood offerings are concerned. Here it needs to be taken into account that North India is not Rajinikanth’s domain while most other films with higher openings—including ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, ‘Baaghi 2’ and ‘Gold’—benefited from a national holiday period.

‘2.0’ also did good business overseas on the 1st, mopping up $295,000 in box office collections in the US, NZ$ 23,243 (about ₹11.11 lakh) in New Zealand and A$114,696 (about ₹58.46 lakh) in Australia.

The record for the highest opening day for an Indian movie is held by ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ that made ₹121 crore in 2017.

Earlier in the week, online ticket booking site BookMyShow reported that the S.Shankar-directed film, featuring Akshay Kumar alongside Rajinikanth, crossed the 1 million ticket sales mark—as far advance ticket booking was concerned.

“We have seen a phenomenal response for advance ticket bookings for ‘2.0’. It has been one of the most awaited films of the year and this has reflected well on the ticket sales so far. BookMyShow has sold over one million tickets in advance sales across all the three languages and formats, with 3D dominating the sales,” said Ashish Saksena, chief operating officer (cinemas) at BookMyShow.

How to monitor for negative SEO ?

Combat spammy inbound links, affiliate hijacking and scraping content to avoid negative impacts on your rankings.

There are times your competitors may resort to “negative SEO” to try to knock you out of your hard-earned position. Negative SEO is the purposeful act, typically by a competitor, to attempt to get your site penalized or reduce its authority. While competitors can’t control the on-page SEO of your site, they do have other methods to negatively impact it.

Spammy inbound links

Spammy inbound links are probably the most common form of negative SEO I see on a regular basis. In part, you can understand why this option is a popular approach. Spammy inbound links are typically easy inbound links to build on terrible sites, like link farm sites. The barrier to achieving these links for someone practicing negative SEO is low. However, the payoff for the negative SEO can be high for them – just a few really spammy inbound links can affect your site, driving down your rankings without you even possibly knowing what’s going on.

Be sure to regularly check your inbound link profile. There are many great link tools available. I personally use AHREFS and filter the report regularly to see what the new links it has found are and where they are coming from. If any look suspicious or spammy, I immediately disavow them.

Duplicate content/scraping content

While I find this to be a less common situation, it’s certainly a technique I’ve seen employed. Sometimes others steal your site content simply because they want your good stuff – your great content – to help them rank better. But that can obviously create duplicate content issues and, more importantly, your content is copywritten material and is not their property. Duplicate content on other sites can be more difficult to monitor than inbound links, but there are some monitoring tools available. CopyScape offers a plagiarism monitoring tool, CopySentry, for a low cost.

Affiliate hijacking

A few years back, I was working on a proposal for a maternity clothing maker based in the UK. As I was performing a preliminary review of the site, I performed a typical Google search to see how the brand was presenting in search results. The brand’s website ranked at the top, but when I clicked on the search result, a very fast redirect ensued that took me to a URL with affiliate tracking parameters. Using a series of Javascript redirects, the affiliate was able to hijack the organic search listing and thereby ensure that the affiliate’s code was tracking for all of the organic search purchases. Here’s what the final home page URL redirected to:

This means that every purchase at the time that came through organic search was being credited to the affiliate ID identified in the URL. The retailer owed $1/transaction to the affiliate, and this retailer had over 10,000 organic search visits per month, which could equate to thousands of dollars in affiliate fees that were illegitmate!

To monitor for this type of negative SEO effort, keep a close eye on both your analytics and your affiliate tracking measurement. In most cases, you likely would not have affiliate links coming from organic search. If you see that in your analytics, that’s a red flag something may be wrong.
