WhatsApp Now Lets You Add People Using QR Codes; WhatsApp QR Code

WhatsApp wants to make it easier for users to be able to share their contact details and add new users to the service. Thus, it features debuted a new QR code contact card with the newest iOS beta update. You could share your Whatsapp QR code with others, who can then scan and add you to their contact list. Easy peasy!

First spotted by serial tipster WABetaInfo, this feature has been unrolled through a server-side update in the latest WhatsApp beta v2.20.60.27 update. If you an iPhone user, You could head into the app’s settings to check a new ‘ Whatsapp QR code’ icon next to the username.

You can tap the icon to see a personal QR code contact card, as shown within the header image above. This WhatsApp QR code is directly shareable to other messaging apps, e-mail, or more. You can prefer to screenshot the same to send it to your friends.

Your friend will then need to head to the said QR code settings page inside WhatsApp. Under their personal QR code, They are going to find a ‘Scan’ button. Tapping the scan button will open a camera view that can be used to scan the received QR code. You could either point your phone towards the code or pull the code from your gallery.

The process is simple and some of you have already used it on Instagram or Snapchat. A necessary thing that I should signify right away is that WhatsApp will also share your phone number via the WhatsApp QR code. The app relies on phone numbers to add new users. So, it’s only justified for them to share it with others.

Users can also choose to share their QR codes on social media or share them within a public group – especially those looking to promote a business. Well, if you misplace or accidentally share the WhatsApp QR code with someone you didn’t want to, then WhatsApp will provide you the option to reset the QR code. The reset option is additionally available below your personal code.

The QR code contact card is merely accessible to iOS beta users at the moment. But, the same should reach Android beta users very soon. There’s currently no word on when the feature will roll out to everyone.

OnePlus 9 borrows from OnePlus 8 Pro a lot, hints latest leak

OnePlus 9 borrows from OnePlus 8 Pro a lot, hints latest leak

What do we know about OnePlus 9? For starters, it is bound to run on the Snapdragon 888 chip and is most likely to be an evolution of the OnePlus 8T. That’s it! Most of the leaks on the OnePlus 9 series are related to the OnePlus 9 Lite, a new addition to the lineup that’s speculated to keep the flagship range fairly accessible to consumers. For those not caring about accessibility, the vanilla model may be the sweet one to choose since it borrows from the OnePlus 8 Pro a lot if the latest leaks are anything to believe.



A report from 91Mobiles has leaked some of the details on the upcoming OnePlus 9 and while the main details are yet to come out, there’s enough to get OnePlus fans excited. The regular model is likely to get borrow some features from the OnePlus 8 Pro, such as wireless charging, reverse wireless charging, and a 65W fast-charging system charging the 4500mAh battery. For power users, these additions should be enough to consider the next-gen upgrade.

OnePlus 9 going high on its wireless ambitions

In 2020, OnePlus introduced the concept of wireless charging to its Pro variant of the OnePlus 8. The phone grabbed headlines for its 30W fast wireless chargings system, which promised a full top-up in almost an hour. OnePlus retained the feature for the Pro model as the newer OnePlus 8T skipped the wireless charging feature entirely and focused on the 65W fast charging system. With Apple embracing wireless charging better with the iPhone 12, OnePlus seems to be following the same for most of its devices.



Another notable upgrade seems to be the 4500mAh battery over the 4300mAh unit from the OnePlus 8. Surely, it’s not drastically bigger but even a minor increase in battery capacity is always helpful. The phone is also said to retain the flat display from the OnePlus 8T, complete with a punch-hole cutout in the corner.

Previous leaks and rumors hinted at a possible upgrade to the main camera system on the regular OnePlus 9 since it last saw an upgrade in 2019 with the OnePlus 7. The main camera is said to use the 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor that just debuted on the Oppo Reno 5 Pro+. This could be accompanied by a 20-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera system. After the OnePlus 7T, this is the first time since the cameras would be upgraded on the regular model if these rumors are true.

What remains to be seen is what will the OnePlus 9 Pro bring to the table? Speculations suggest the same curved edge display design mated to a new camera system, the new Snapdragon 888 chip, an even bigger battery, and possibly, the 120W fast wired charging from those Oppo flagships.

Samsung removes ad that mocked Apple for charger-less iPhone 12 and we know why

samsung note 20 ultra

Samsung seems to have a habit of poking fun at its direct competitor Apple for whatever the latter does. This happened when Apple removed the 3.5mm audio jack or when it introduced the notch in the iPhone X, and even recently when Apple stopped selling a charger with the new iPhone 12 series and more to follow. But now, the South Korean tech major has removed the recent ad that mocked Apple for this reason and we may know why.

Samsung gets rid of ad that mocked Apple

The company has removed the advert that its Caribbean subsidiary posted after Apple launched the iPhone 12. The ad threw a jab at Apple’s decision to not include the charger and the EarPods with the iPhone 12 series and more iPhones to follow.



The ad posted on Facebook with a black charger, which no longer exists, by the way, read, “Your #Galaxy does give you what you are looking for. From the most basic as a charger to the best camera, battery, performance, memory, and even 120Hz screen on a phone.

While Samsung hasn’t revealed why it removed the ad, the reason is deemed pretty simple. Much like earlier, the company will also follow Apple and remove the charger and earphones with the upcoming Samsung devices.

For those who don’t know, Samsung has taken jabs at Apple on several occasions. It mocked Apple for the removal of headphones jacks, inclusion of notches, non-inclusion of fast charging, and even for the apparent lower download speeds.

While the company leaves no stone unturned to poke fun at Apple and keeps on coming up with indirect ways to do it, the company eventually ends up following what Apple has done. This leaves us wondering why the mockery in the first place.



For the uninitiated, Samsung is also expected to remove the in-box charger and earphones with the Samsung Galaxy S21 series, which is scheduled to launch in January 2021. The decision, which is for environmental reasons (at least on the surface) will take shape in Europe and eventually extend to more regions.

However, we still don’t have a confirmation on the same and need to wait until the launch to take place.

galaxy tab active 3

There are only a couple of companies that sell Android tablets in 2020. The notable two brands are Samsung and Huawei. The South Korean tech giant had only recently launched Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ as its flagship tablet devices. Now, it seems the corporate will soon release Galaxy Tab Active 3 whose entire specs are now leaked.



The upcoming Galaxy Tab Active 3 will be the successor to Galaxy Tab Active 2 from late 2017. Samsung’s Active series of tablets are targeted at industries, hence the long interval of 3 years between the launch of every new model. For those unaware, the primary one in the series was unveiled back in December 2014.

That said, the 2020 model was first spotted on Geekbench with model number SM-T575 in July powered by Exynos 9810 paired with 4GB RAM and Android 10 operating system. Just in case you’re wondering, this chipset made its debut inside Galaxy S9 in 2018.



Now, an exclusive leak by SamMobile reveals the other remaining specs of this forthcoming Galaxy Tab Active 3. As per the publication, it’ll be MIL-STD 810 certified for durability and can be available in 64GB and 128GB storage configurations. Customers will also have a choice to get it with LTE connectivity.

Further, on the front, the tablet will sport an 8-inch TFT LCD panel with a resolution of 1920×1200 pixels and three physical buttons below it for navigation as per the SafetyKorea certification bureau. It might come with Bluetooth 5.0 and can also support S Pen with remote control option.

Last but not least, it’ll be backed by a 5,050mAh battery and its launch date is not known at this point. Anyway, since its a niche product, we expect Samsung to announce it via press release within the coming days just like the Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition.
