Samsung Galaxy Fold will not be Ship until July, report says

Samsung allegedly may be overlooking a July boat date to the postponed Galaxy Fold, according to a company official talking to The Korea Herald, apparently denying rumors from earlier in June the business was considering a July launch.

“If we are running such a media event this month, we should be doing something by now,” said a Samsung official. “Nothing has progressed since the April delay.”

If accurate, that will place the first launch date for its Fold sometime in August, at which stage Samsung could only hold off the statement to permit the Fold to start alongside the forthcoming Galaxy Notice 10(assuming the company isn’t concerned that both big-screened mobiles could cannibalize each other’s sales.)

The Galaxy Fold was initially set to launch on April 26th, but Samsung indefinitely postponed the apparatus after several inspection units undergone troubles. Ever since that time, AT&T, Best Purchase , and even Samsung have canceled preorders for the foldable telephone.

In May, co-CEO DJ Koh assured that “people won’t be too late,” in relation to launching time, and Samsung agents have commented that it could announce a new launch date for your telephone “at the coming months”

Samsung is not the only phone company experiencing foldable phone troubles, however: Huawei now announced that it might be delaying the launching of its foldable Mate X apparatus from June to September to allow for further testing.

The Most Hyped – OpenAI ChatGPT Bot Is Here to Converse with Humans About Everything

After receiving a lot of hype, the latest ChatGPT bot by Elon-Musk founded company OpenAI was released on Thursday with cutting-edge AI functionalities. After the launch of GPT-3 in 2020, the company has yet to release any full model and plans to release GPT-4 earlier next year or this year-end. But surprisingly, a user-friendly version of ChatGPT based on GPT-3.5 is currently released by the company to answer all sorts of queries, most humanly and straightforwardly.

The bot is based on the latest language generation technology of GPT 3.5 but with a simple UI so you can converse with it in a browser to write about anything from complex code to a full essay on any topic. People are astonished to see how this latest release of language model quickly interprets source codes and suggests bugs for fixing.

While the chatbot is fun, flexible and useful for asking for details about anything, there are certain limitations. For instance, the AI is only partially able to provide accurate information as fact, and people have encountered the bot offering misinformation occasionally.

But the good thing about the bot is its ability to handle queries’ feedback and improve/revise them upon being asked again. It also has a self-censoring ability for being questioned about a difficult or impractical query. It differs from other AI-enabled bots because it assists human creativity. 

The bot is designed with a dialogue format that answers the follow-up queries in an engaging way, admits its mistakes, rectifies them, and censors irrelevant questions. Unlike its previous version releases, this latest AI chatbot has been released as a free research preview tool for everyone.

The bot has been trained by taking a large text sample from the web without definite permissions from the authors of the text used. As a result, many controversies are going on, stating that the bot is capable of Copyright laundering – imitating the original work without violating the copyright.

Another thing that makes ChatGPT fun and different from its predecessors is its ability to understand and answer the stances. It can help you write poems and essays, tell jokes and debate political or global issues.

While certain limitations are associated with it, the team continuously works to improve the language model with more precise information in its final version. With this latest cutting-edge AI technology, the capabilities are limitless, and it won’t be wrong to say that such bots will make people out of a job in the future.

Everything you need to know about Google Pixel 7a

Google has been keeping its range of phones accessible to a wider base of users through its Pixel A series. And this time around with Google Pixel 7 and Google Pixel 7 Pro taking the centre stage, fans are anticipating a Google Pixel 7a to be announced soon.

Though the company has made no official announcement, it is widely anticipated that Pixel 7a should be announced any moment now. Though chip shortage is a major concern for the industry, some experts believe that the launch of Pixel 7a might suffer due to it. Nevertheless, everyone is currently super busy figuring out what this model might be like in design and features whenever it is announced.

Till now there have only been one or two leaks and yet they have been so good that it has sparked a lot of rumors. Design and features are being talked about especially, various experts believe that this time around Google might not make many compromises despite the lower price tag of the phone. Though charging might be a disappointment here. Despite featuring wireless charging it will only offer a 5W charger which means you don’t get the comfort of charging up your device within minutes.

A lot of this information is coming from a particular developer Kuba Wojciechowski. He adds that the camera and chipset might get a considerable upgrade from the previous model Pixel 6a. Tensor G2 chip is very likely to feature on 7a. It might not be revolutionary, but it will definitely be quite good given the budget of the phone.

Design leaks have become a routine before every launch. And Google is no different. Some renditions of Pixel 7a have surfaced and the phone looks similar to Pixel 6a but it also has some upgraded design elements too.

When it comes to the pricing, since the latest launch Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro didn’t see any additional price rise, users can expect the same from Pixel 7a. It might feature a price tag similar to the one Pixel 6a had upon its launch which was around $450. However, prices are subject to vary from region to region.

Users want a host of features from this model, some of them being face unlock, better refresh rate, newer color options, and so much more. It remains to be seen if the company actually offers any of these. Are you excited about the announcement of Google Pixel 7a?

Discord is Letting Creators Earn Money Through Subscriptions – Feature is Live for US Servers

The first-ever Creators Monetization feature on the popular gaming app Discord is now live for all the US servers. After testing the feature for a year, Discord has now made the Server subscription eligible for US server owners. 

It will let your favorite creator or streamer offer exclusive features & content at different price plans as per their will. Subscribers will also get early access to custom merch, early videos, and voting rights for consequential polls.

The server owners can charge somewhere between $3 to $10 subscription fees per user for exclusive features and premium benefits. The server owners will get 90% of this subscription fee, while the 10% will be used as a discord commission. To further market & promote their exclusive paid features, the server owners or creators can utilize the latest promo webpage feature.

Any server owner residing in the US with no recent policy violations is eligible to have this monetization feature. To enable the subscription feature, the minimum eligibility criteria for creators and server owners are:

  • Must be 18 years older or above
  • Account health must be good
  • Must have a phone number and email verified on the platform
  • Two-factor authentication must be enabled.

The good thing is that no minimum community size or threshold is required to be eligible for this feature, letting even the small community owners benefit through this feature. However, per the platform’s monetization terms, the creators or server owners must wait 30 days after the month’s end to get their monthly payment. It means the creators will get paid for January in March. To withdraw their first payout, creators must have a $100 payment in their accounts with a minimum of $25 for each monthly payout subsequently. 

While the eligibility criteria are quite simple, the monetization terms page has a list of wide terms & conditions highlighting what kind of content is not eligible under this subscription feature. For instance, any sexual explicit or gambling-promoting content is strictly prohibited under this monetization policy. 

Compared to Twitch’s 50/50 monetization policy, Discord’s 90/10 is highly impressive and beneficial for server owners. To further educate and help creators make money through this latest subscription service feature, Discord has designed a Creator Portal to access the monetization scheme breakdown and various tips to earn well through this feature.

As per the group product manager of Discord, Derek Yang, Creators give a lot of their time & creativity to facilitate smooth conversations and connections in their servers. So, now it is their time to get some monetary rewards for their hard work, support and creativity through this latest monetization feature.
