Leaked benchmark indicates the presence of Sony’s flagship smartphone with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC

On a benchmark aggregator website Geekbench there is an indication towards a new Sony Smartphone codenamed H8526. The interesting thing about this is the presence of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Currently the leading SoC from Qualcomm is Snapdragon 845 which is present in most of the current flagships from various smartphone makers such as Samsung Galaxy S9, Asus ZenFone 5z and One Plus 6.

Snapdragon 855 will be fabricated using 7nm technology and Qualcomm would be the first company to utilize it. There were some rumors that Qualcomm will go with TSMC foundry for the fabrication of 855 chip but nevertheless it will be solid chip. Because of the use of 7nm technology the Snapdragon 855 SoC is believed to come with a X24 modem which supports data transfer speed up to 2 Gbps.

Sony H8526 is rumored to be Xperia XZ3 and is expected to be launched in August this year. But the main problem is will Qualcomm be ready for mass production of 855 chips by then.

Out of the blue Namecheap decided to offer free whois privacy service for life

Domain registrars most of the times charge a hefty fee for complementary services such as WhoIs privacy which is used for masking public details of your domain name such as your name and address. In some cases the cost of WhoIs privacy service is more than the cost of the domain itself.

Truly speaking it is a very profitable venture for domain registrars. But this entire model got disrupted recently when EU (European Union) decided to go ahead with GDPR implementation in which it is illegal to publicly show someone’s personal information. This is particularly applicable for EU residents but it has made its impact beyond that. Registrars are now forced to show truncated version of whois to the public. So for end users like us it is a sort of free privacy forever.

Samsung to pack Galaxy Note 9 with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of on board storage

Rumors as you all know are not to be trusted particularly if they are coming from a person behind the social networking site Twitter. But as the time passes these people behind the twitter started to gain prominence when their predictions started to become reality. Similar is the case with the twitter handle called as Ice Universe who recently only tweeted that Samsung is planning to launch next generation Galaxy Note 9 with 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.

After seeing that tweet I am also little bit shocked because of the fact that how Samsung can pack 8 GB RAM into such a small SOC but at the same time I am excited too as it will be boon for those apps which are RAM heavy. What will be its other specs? Well at this time we are not quite sure but stay tuned.
