Caribbean Billions hidden in Swiss accounts List revealed in Expose

first_img Beaches Resort Turks and Caicos confirms indefinite closure in 2021 Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 23 Feb 2015 – There is more news from the wire which lends insight into why Labour Party Leader in the UK, Ed Miliband may be calling for greater transparency in the financial services sector of the British OTs.

The Galaxy Note 10 has no headphone jack confirmed

first_imgSamsung said another beneficial side effect of losing the jack is that it enables designers to reduce the amount of bezel around the screen. “With the Note, what you’re seeing is the culmination of slimming down the bezel to maximize the screen size,” said Suzanne de Silva, Samsung America’s head of product management. The Motorola Moto Z and the Apple’s iPhone 7 were the first “modern” phones to ditch a 3.5mm output in 2016 (the first Android phone, the T-Mobile G1, lacked one back in 2008). Since then, most high-end phones have removed built-in headphone jacks, although most will work with adapters. Earlier iPhones included adapters in the box, but in 2018 Apple stopped including them as well. The China-only Galaxy A8S was Samsung’s first phone to dispense with the headphone jack, while the now-delayed Galaxy Fold and reversible-camera Galaxy A80 also follow suit. Meanwhile, Samsung declined to comment on whether next year’s Galaxy S11 would also lack a 3.5mm output. But with the Note 10 pulling the trigger, it’s hard to imagine its successor bringing the jack back from the dead. Mentioned Above Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (128GB, ocean blue) Sprint Preview • Four days with the Galaxy Note 9: Here’s the good and bad so far Samsung told CNET that its own surveys of Galaxy S and Note buyers said a majority — around 70% — used Bluetooth instead of the headphone jack.  “One thing we looked at is what people are actually doing on their device. Far and away for Note, people are using Bluetooth audio. The headphone jack just isn’t getting the usage we used to see,” said Caleb Slavin, Samsung America’s senior manager of product management.

Samsung announced two main versions of the Note 10 at an event in New York today: the 6.3-inch Note 10 and the 6.8-inch Note 10 Plus. All phones include a nearly bezel-less Cinematic Infinity Display and at least three separate cameras on the rear.   While the Note 10s won’t include Bluetooth headphones in the package, they will ship with a pair of wired AKG earbuds that plug into the phone’s USB-C port. Meanwhile the official 3.5mm-to-USB adapter dongle is a $10 option — not included in the box.
