PS5 Games We Expect (But Sony Hasn’t Announced Yet)



Tons have games have been confirmed for the PlayStation 5 ahead of its holiday release, but there are many more PS5 games that are expected to be made available but currently remain unconfirmed. With the next-gen PS5 console arriving before the end of the year, gamers can expect to hear more details about all of the highly anticipated PS5 games in the coming months, and it’s likely they’ll hear about a few which haven’t even been announced yet.

Sony’ Future of Gaming PS5 reveal event, which took place on June 11th after a week’s delay, revealed many exciting details about the PlayStation 5, including finally giving players a look at what the PS5 console looks like. The PS5 reveal event also provided information about what games will be accessible on PS5, including highly anticipated titles like GTA 5 and Marvel’s Spider-Man Miles Morales.

However, some players may have been disappointed that a PS5 game they were hoping to see wasn’t mentioned during the console’s reveal event. There are many titles expected to come for PlayStation 5 and just haven’t been officially announced yet, and since Sony is holding more reveal events throughout the summer, more details are likely to come on these games in the near future.

PS5 Games Expected To Arrive Eventually

Some PlayStation 5 games have been given official release dates, while others have been confirmed to be in the works but lack an expected release so far. However, some games are simply rumored to be in the works having been officially confirmed as projects at all. Grand Theft Auto 6 is one of those games. While rumors suggest the game will be set in Vice City and South America, Rockstar Games has yet to even confirm the project. Rather, they only announced a ported version of GTA 5 will come to the PS5 by 2021. Similarly, there has been speculation over whether Rockstar’s 2018 Red Dead Redemption 2 or its 2010 sequel will be remastered for PS5. Several different theories have suggested the answer is yes, but once again, these projects remain a mystery.

Naughty Dog is in a similar boat. Though The Last of Us 2 will release this month, it’s unclear when or if the game will be available on PS5, although its previous entry did appear on two different consoles. It is also possible the developer will come out with Uncharted 5 for PS5, though the project hasn’t been confirmed. Mortal Kombat 12seems to be guaranteed to arrive for next-gen consoles eventually, considering the success of MK11, and while CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is on track to release for last-generation consoles this coming fall, the developer has declined to comment when it will be available on PS5 or Xbox Series X, although they said they are definitely interested in making it available on newer consoles.

New Crash Bandicoot games have been a subject of discussion for years, but the topic didn’t come up at Sony’s reveal event. Still, new merchandise that was leaked early for the game suggests a new version will be coming to the PS5, CCN reports. The Call of Duty franchise has also received much speculation. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare & Warzone has said it will release on next-gen consoles, but Activision has not provided any more details. There’s also been talk that a new COD game set in the Cold War or Vietnam era would release specifically for next-gen consoles, but its release date also remains unclear. Leyou has said they will port Warframe, originally released in 2013, for next-gen consoles, though it’s unclear when this will happen. Additionally, Bethesda Game Studios’ The Elder Scrolls 6 had a release trailed revealed in 2018, but since then there’s been no word on when or whether it will be available on PS5 or Xbox Series X.

Luckily, Sony has already confirmed that more games are on the way, despite not being announced yet. “We wanted triple-A games that would fully demonstrate the horsepower of the machine,” PlayStation CEO Jim Ryan explained to BBC. “But some of these smaller games are making very cool and innovative use of the new features of the console. So we allowed the show to give a sense of the sheer range of gameplay experience that will be available on PlayStation 5. And this is just the start. There are so many more games that we have in development.” So, even if gamers haven’t received confirmation that their favorite game(s) will be accessible on PlayStation 5, expect to see many more titles announced in the near future.

Samsung may remove chargers from some smartphones starting 2021




Samsung may stop including chargers with some of its smartphones in the future, a new report coming from South Korea claims. One of the world’s largest smartphone manufacturers is trying to cut costs in an ever-growing industry.

After British investment bank Barkley predicted that Apple’s next iPhone model will be shipped without earphones and charger, it looks like Samsung is going to do the same thing. Nothing is set in stone at the moment, as the South Korean company is waiting for consumers feedback before taking such a radical decision.

Samsung has taken into consideration removing chargers from its smartphones for quite a while because the company believes there have been enough supplied to the market in the last 10 years.

Although the cost of a charger is very small compared with other components, support for 5G technology has increased smartphone prices. In order to balance that, Samsung is looking to cut costs from everywhere it can and the removal of the charger could give it some room when it comes to setting prices.

Strangely, the report doesn’t mention e-waste reduction as the primary reason for Samsung’s decision to remove chargers from some of its smartphones. It sounds like Apple and Samsung are just looking for new ways to boost their profits or at least maintain them at a certain level.

That’s not a bad thing business-wise, but removing a key component from the retail packaging must be backed by solid reasoning and extra measures, to ensure that consumers are getting everything they need to start using a product they bought right out of the box.

ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo: Truly the laptop of tomorrow?




ASUS clearly had the creatives in mind when they were conceptualizing the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo. Known by ASUS as “the laptop of tomorrow”, the ZenBook Pro Duo is a multitasking machine or laptop as you may call it that was purposely built for you if you are a programmer, video editor, photographer, animator, graphic artists, illustrators, architects, music producer, music artist, or even a Game streamer.

The ZenBook Pro Duo is not just an incredible laptop with powerful and admirable specifications, it’s an exceptional one too, allowing you take your creativity and productivity to the next level. It is designed to give you the ultimate edge in workflow efficiency, the powerful RTX Studio Laptop features a full width 4K ASUS ScreenPad™ that works seamlessly with the main 4K UHD OLED display.

Computing Performance

The ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo UX581 is a Windows 10 Home laptop with a 15.60-inch display of 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution. The laptop comes with a 32GB of 2,666MHz DDR4 RAM and 1TB of SSD storage which is appropriate for a creative’s laptop these days. For the very best graphics experience, ZenBook Pro Duo uses the latest NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 discrete graphics powered by the NVIDIA Turing™ architecture. The ultrapowerful GPU with the NVIDIA Studio Driver enables you to enjoy the power of real-time ray-tracing and high-resolution video editing for the ultimate visual realism. Featuring up to a 9th Generation Intel® Core™ i9 eight-core processor that’s designed to deliver the ultimate multitasking performance, the ZenBook Pro Duo can effortlessly handle all the apps on your main screen and ScreenPad™ Plus, this ultrapowerful combination ensures that ZenBook Pro Duo takes professional-quality tasks with ease, such as multi-layer photo or video editing, 3D graphics rendering or even game live-streaming.


The ZenBook Pro Duo’s primary screen is a 4K OLED display with a base resolution of 3,840 by 2,160 pixels. The ScreenPad™ Plus, a 3840 x 1110 resolution matte secondary screen is very different from the glossy primary screen despite having the same PPI and width. Together, these screens are an arresting sight to behold. While both multitouch displays support stylus input, ScreenPad Plus gives you a superbly ergonomic and stable platform for writing or drawing. Take notes, sketch out your ideas, or do precision graphical editing in the most intuitive way ever. ZenBook Pro Duo’s display has PANTONE® Validated colour accuracy and supports an exceptionally wide 100% DCI-P3 colour gamutAdvertisement

ScreenPad™ Plus

The ScreenPad has a matte finish with its own display settings and a dedicated on and off button. This is good for when you don’t want any distractions from that screen or just want to conserve some power.  When you power on the ZenBook Pro Duo for the first time, the ScreenPad Plus offers some hands-on tutorials, which familiarize you with using the Launcher and the Action Menu. The ScreenPad™ Plus is equipped with a series of handy built-in apps to help boost your productivity. Such built-in apps include; Quick Key which allows one-tap automation of complex keyboard sequences, and Handwriting which lets you input text intuitively. There are also useful quick controls such as App Switcher, ViewMax and Task Swap for intuitive interactions between the main display and ScreenPad Plus. Task Group lets you lock into work mode by opening multiple tasks with a single touch. And now you can drag apps or in-app toolbars onto ScreenPad Plus to give you more room to work on the main display, wherever you are.


As far as connectivity is concerned, the ZenBook Pro Duo is powered with a full set of high-performance I/O ports — including the latest Thunderbolt™ 3 USB-C™ port — which gives you dongle-free connectivity whatever you’re doing and wherever you are. The latest Intel Wi-Fi 6 with Gig+ (802.11ax) takes wireless speeds to the next level especially if you are connected to broadbands that are reliable and fast enough in this part of the world. Although the MicroSD reader cannot be found on this laptop, port positioning is otherwise good as they are evenly distributed and easy to reach along the sides.


ZenBook Pro Duo is equipped with the ASUS SonicMaster stereo audio system with surround-sound; smart amplifier for maximum audio performance. Its array microphone supports Cortana and Alexa voice-recognition. 3.5mm headphone jack. Long-travel voice coils for improved low-frequency response. Certified by Harman Kardon


The machine is powered by a massive battery and is backed up by a 230W charger. On a full battery, the laptop will give a 6-7 hours lifetime without a recharge and when playing movies /games the consumption goes down to 4.7-5.5hours of use.

Features worthy of note

The DCI-P3 colour space — widely used in the motion picture industry — is increasingly the preferred choice of creative professionals for its increased range of possible colours and makes images on ZenBook Pro Duo look simply stunning.
There’s also a separate palm rest in the box, which enhances the ErgoLift tilting keyboard design to give you the most comfortable typing experience ever.
Touchpad & Numberpad: ZenBook Pro Duo features the latest version of the ASUS NumberPad6, an LED-illuminated numeric keypad integrated into the touchpad. The precision touchpad (PTP) technology supports up to four-finger smart gestures
Infra-Red camera for Hands-free login with face unlock even in the dark!
Alexa built-in with light bar
Stylus: The ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo comes bundled with a stylus. Both displays support stylus input, although the ScreenPad Plus gives you a stable platform for writing, sketching, or drawing.

In conclusion, the ZenBook Pro Duo is a worthy investment for a creative and daring professional. In as much as you keep an open mind and can deal with its weight, lack of SD card reader and battery life, it’s an excellent glimpse into the future of laptop-based content creation.

The Apple Watch hand washing feature is coming — dirt and filth, beware




Wow, what a WWDC that was! We had confirmation of picture-in-picture video for iPhonesa redesigned homescreen across devices, and a whole new way of interacting with the iPad.

And — who, really, could possibly forget? — an Apple Watch hand washing feature.

You heard that right: no longer will you have to sing Happy Birthday or other equally irritating songs (though that decision rests with you) to protect yourself from filth and coronavirus. Instead, your fancy Apple wearable will do the dirty work.

Well, okay, it’s not going to actually wash your hands for you, but it is going to automatically give you a countdown while you do the deed.

And yes, you read that right, automatically.

Your Apple Watch will use motion sensing and sound to recognize when you’re washing your hands, meaning you don’t have to turn the feature on.

The company used machine learning to understand the common movements of hand washing. When this is recognized, the Apple Watch will listen out for the telltale signs of running water and the squishy squelches of soap being squeezed between your fingers.

At that point, a 20-second timer starts — something that’ll look like this:

Apple Watch Hand Washing

Throughout the Apple Watch hand washing process, you’ll also receive haptic notifications (in other words, little taps on your wrist), as well a sound somewhere between a drip and bubble popping as each second passes.

And if you stop washing your hands before the 20 seconds are up? First off, ew. Secondly, you’ll get a notification to keep on washing.

There are some other cool aspects of the Apple Watch hand washing feature. It’ll sync with Apple’s Health app, meaning you’ll be able to track your hand washing times and frequency. Another interesting feature is that the Apple Watch will remind you to wash your hands when you’ve returned home.

On the privacy front, none of the sounds used to start the Apple Watch hand washing function will be recorded — which should help ease the mind of many.

Yeah, you could argue that the this feature is a little nanny-ing — and you wouldn’t be wrong — but you can always take the damn thing off. And me? Anything that makes washing my hands more fun is fine and dandy.

Bring on watchOS 7.
