How To Convert Image To Word On Android Phones

How to Convert Image to Word onAndroid PhonesLong gone are the times where the only way to digitize something written on paper was to retype it on a computer. That was a really painful and time-consuming process. 
Just imagine students with hundreds of notes and study materials trying to digitize them all. Or stay at home moms trying to digitize their recipes so they wouldn't have them laying around the kitchen in a paper form. You could also imagine the struggle of a businessman trying to digitize tons of reports or other financial documents.

Samsung Galaxy S10 Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours


‘Beyond’ is a fitting codename for the Galaxy S10, the upcoming Samsung flagship Android phone that commemorates the 10-year anniversary of the S series (sort of). The new Samsung S10 will by all accounts be revolutionary.

Technically it's not the 10th anniversary of the S series, with the original model announced in March 2010. But it will be the 10th model, following the Galaxy S, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S7, S8 and S9.

When is the Galaxy S10 coming out?
‘Beyond’ is a fitting codename for the Galaxy S10, the upcoming Samsung flagship Android phone that commemorates the 10-year anniversary of the S series (sort of). The new Samsung S10 will by all accounts be revolutionary.

Technically it's not the 10th anniversary of the S series, with the original model announced in March 2010. But it will be the 10th model, following the Galaxy S, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S7, S8 and S9.

Samsung is not expected to deviate from its traditional MWC Unpacked event in 2019. The S10 will likely be announced the day before the show begins, putting its release date at Sunday 24 February 2019. Expect it to go up for preorder immediately, and on sale in mid-March 2019.

(There is some talk of a January CES launch, but we believe this will instead be the launch of the Galaxy X foldable phone.)

How much will the Galaxy S10 cost?
Expect the price to rise from the S9’s £739 (US$719)/£869 ($839) RRP for the standard and Plus models respectively. We could see prices as high as £799 and £899.

Of course, there is actually tipped to be three new models arriving in February, sized at 5.8in, 6.2in and 6.44in, so the largest model will be priced a little higher still.

Are there any design changes in the Galaxy S10?
A concept video from DBS Designing (shown at the top of this page) appears to confuse the Samsung Galaxy X with the Galaxy S10, but judging from the lack of a foldable design it certainly seems to have had the S10 in mind. Although it’s just a concept the video shows a truly striking bezel-less design, with an all-screen front, in-display fingerprint scanner and triple cameras on the rear. These are all rumoured features for the eventual device, so let’s hope this concept is something close to the finished design.

That confusion in the name may have arisen from a Samsung press conference held in February 2018 in which Samsung Mobile President Koh Dong-jin said it will keep the Galaxy name but isn’t entirely sure about the S moniker. Of course, releasing both a Galaxy X and a Galaxy 10 within a month of each other is likely to cause a lot of confusion, especially given that in the case of Apple’s iPhone X the ‘X’ is pronounced ‘ten’.

What are the key new features in the Galaxy S10?
Bezel-less Infinity Display

Well known leakster Ice Universe published an image that allegedly shows the Galaxy S10’s bezel-less display. It’s something we’ve been getting increasingly closer to over the past couple of years, and in Samsung’s new flagship we could finally see a truly bezel-less design.
The only question that remains is where Samsung intends to put the selfie camera, earpiece and sensors. There’s a chance we could see a pop-up unit that houses all these things, as on the Vivo Apex, and Samsung has also been working on ‘Sound on Display’ tech that allows the screen glass to emit audio.

This is almost certainly a Super AMOLED panel, with the standard S10 expected to measure 5.8in and the Plus model 6.2in. A third model is rumoured at 6.44in. For the 5.8in version at least, we could also see a shorter body thanks to the removal of the top and bottom bezels.
The new Galaxy phone is expected to have a screen-to-body ratio of 93%, which is significantly higher that the S9’s 83.6%.

Ice Universe has suggested it will have a greater than 600ppi pixel density. Given that the Quad-HD+ Galaxy S9 is 570ppi, we may see a move to Ultra-HD/4K.

In-display fingerprint sensor

It’ll be in the Galaxy S10 Plus that we see for the first time the highly-anticipated in-display fingerprint sensor. The latest reports suggest this will be a feature reserved for the two premium models, while the standard S10 will get a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Chosun Biz reports that technical difficulties have meant Samsung has tried and failed to implement FOD (fingerprint on display) tech for the past two years, and has decided not to add it to the upcoming Note 9 in favour of the S10 and S10 Plus.

It claims 2019 will be the year the FOD becomes commonplace, with 100 million units shipped, and a further 210 million in 2020.

Triple rear cameras

Following the success of the triple rear camera arrangement on the Huawei P20 Pro, Samsung is expected to follow a similar format with its S10 - a theory backed by KBI Securities analyst Kim Dong-won, who says the company hopes it will help it to “reinvigorate” its business. Extra depth-sensing abilities, optical zoom and increased light sensitivity are expected to headline.

The triple rear camera is also a feature rumoured to arrive on the OnePlus 6T.

Dual-selfie cameras
The largest of the three Galaxy S10 models is expected to arrive with two selfie cameras. The spec of these cameras is not known, though we suspect they may be 8Mp and 16Mp in line with the Galaxy A8.

Face ID-style 3D sensing camera
Rumours hailing from Korea suggest Samsung will ditch the iris scanner in favour of a 3D sensing camera in the Galaxy S10. It says with the in-display fingerprint sensor at the front there’s really no need for this kind of tech.

Faster performance and 5G support
Expect a processor bump in the S10, so we’ll see either Samsung’s latest Exynos chip or the Snapdragon 855 depending where in the world you buy your handset.

In line with this will be faster UFS 3.0 storage, which is twice as fast as UFS 2.0, as well as 5G connectivity.

What is the difference between Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus?
Primarily size, with the Galaxy S10 tipped to retain its 5.8in screen and the S10 Plus a 6.2in. Now there may also be a third model at 6.44in. This also translates to battery capacity, and in the past we’ve seen a 500mAh difference between the two.

Samsung often provides better camera tech on the Plus model too, so it is probable that the rumoured triple rear camera is reserved for the Plus models while the Galaxy S9 keeps its dual-camera. The dual-selfie camera is also expected to feature on only the 6.44in-screen S10. All three should get ISOCELL Plus tech, which we’ll see first in the Note 9. It allows for increased light sensitivity.

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

Nokia 8 Sirocco Review: Hands-on

There’s something of a lack of new flagship smartphones at MWC 2018 but Nokia has plenty of new devices to feast your eyes on, including a sleek handset to rival the Galaxy S9. Here’s our Nokia 8 Sirocco hands-on review.
You would assume that Nokia’s new flagship would be one of the biggest smartphones (in terms of importance) to be unveiled at MWC but Huawei and LG have delayed their respective 2018 devices. So it’s a case of Nokia vs Samsung vs Sony.
Although a Nokia 9 was a possibility, the firm has actually announced the Nokia 8 Sirocco which is quite a radical phone for HMD – the company with the rights to the Nokia brand. For now, this is the Nokia 9.

Let’s face it, sometimes old things are cooler than new one and although the Nokia 8110 4G is technically a new phone, it’s another example of the firm bringing back a classic.
Following the Nokia 3310, this is the second ‘retro classic reloaded’ and although it’s been 22 years, the Nokia 8110 is back.
