Samsung Galaxy A (2019) with triple rear cameras could include a 32MP sensor

Samsung is rumored to launch its 2019 flagships and mid-range phones with triple rear cameras. Now according to the latest reports from Korea, we are getting to see more details on the megapixel count from the said devices. The 2019 Galaxy A phones said to come with a 32-megapixel primary camera at the back, supported by 8-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors.

Currently, the highest resolution camera on a Samsung phone is on the Galaxy A9 Star, which has a 24MP + 16MP setup at the back and a 24MP selfie camera. Now reports say that Samsung is toying with the idea of going as high as a 40-megapixel sensor. While this might be a substantial jump, it wouldn’t be completely surprising to see on an A series device.

The triple camera setup is being developed with a combination of 12MP wide angle, 13MP telephoto, and 16MP super wide angle camera. However, it needs to see how much of the image quality will improve with the new bigger sensor on these said Galaxy A smartphones in 2019.

Google apps track your movements even if location services are turned off claim researchers

According to a press investigation from computer-science researchers at Princeton, Google services on iPhone and Android said to store your location data even if you’ve used a privacy setting that says it will prevent Google from doing so.

Google is upfront about asking permissions when required, it even reminds you to grant permission to use Maps services. However, once you grant permission to record your location over time, Google Maps will display the history for you in a “timeline” that maps out your daily movements. Once you turn off the Location History, Google says that places you go are no longer stored.

However, researchers found out that isn’t true, meaning, even with Location History paused, some Google apps automatically store time-stamped location data without asking for proper permissions. Google said to store a snapshot of your current location even if you merely open the Maps app.

On the other hand, the automatic daily weather updates on your Android phones pinpoint your location roughly. Even the search results that don’t have anything to with your location, pinpoint your precise latitude and longitude and save it to your Google account. These privacy issues affect two billion Android phones and millions of iPhone users worldwide. This is not just …
