The Huawei fans were about to soothe their breath after the unrivaled camera leak on Mate 30 Pro, that is raising their adrenalin levels.The recent leak came in the form of real-life images through the Chinese website, Weibo and the twitter handle of Ice Universe that showed the images of Mate 30 Pro’s display casing. The images from Weibo reveal some unknown Huawei devices in protective casing going through call tests from Huawei Mate 20 Pro. The display housing of Huawei Mate 30 pro |Ice UniverseThe devices in the images are assumed to be Mate 30 Pro considering the physical appearance of the devices matching the previous front panel leaks. Although the side bezels are not visible in the images to state the availability of earphone jack, the phone had a curved display as its predecessor and a big notch on the head suggesting 3D facial recognition.The device in the image is overall similar to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro with slight modifications in the display. So, the expected changes will be packed within the device in the form of software, hardware, and camera with minor changes visible to its outer look. Working model of Huawei mate 30 proAlthough the leaked images did not provide a rear view of the device, the forthcoming Mate 30 Pro might become a big hit considering the previous camera leaks.By pulling information from all the leaks about the Mate 30 Pro till date, here are some expected specs required to boost the tech:Considering the leaks so far, the device can be expected to have a 3D curved AMOLED display of about 6.5 inches. The display might come with an in-display fingerprint due to the large camera bulge hyped in the revelations earlier.The camera has been attracting the attention of the fans of late and Huawei might cue it up with a 64MP shooter and the latest Samsung camera sensors, piled up with ultra-wide lens and a zoom lens, considering its Mate predecessors.The Kirin fans can expect the latest 985 or newer chipset to help the smooth functioning of the camera, multiple apps and high-resolution games. The hardware might include the latest Balong 5000 5G modem to boost the data speed for the user.All the high performing hardware and software above should be powered minimum by a 4500 mAh battery allowing, of course, fast charging.The authenticity of the images above are not confirmed by any sources, the fans will have to hold their breath till Huawei announces its next launch in October.

Fires continue to burn in and around Napa, California, on October 10, 2017. AFPFirefighters battled wildfires in California’s wine region on Tuesday as the death toll rose to 15 and thousands were left homeless in neighborhoods reduced to ashes.“The homes are gone, they are like dust,” said Jack Dixon, a personal trainer who lives in Santa Rosa, a city of 175,000 in Sonoma County. “It is just like we were nuked.”Dixon told AFP that his own neighborhood was spared when the fire “miraculously” changed direction but many others were not so fortunate.“I am surrounded by devastation and feel lucky it didn’t happen to me,” Dixon said.US President Donald Trump declared a major disaster in California, freeing up federal funding and resources to help fight the 17 large wildfires in the western state.Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in eight counties-including wine-producing Napa and Sonoma-and said thousands of firefighters had been deployed to fight the blazes.The state fire prevention agency Calfire forecast strong winds for Wednesday, which could fan the fires.Nine deaths were reported in Sonoma County, three in Mendocino County, two in Napa County and one in Yuba County and the governor said “emergency responders anticipate the number of fatalities could grow.”Among the dead were a couple aged 99 and 100-years-old from Napa who had been married for 75 years, KTVU-TV said. They were unable to evacuate their home in time.The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department said on its Facebook page it had received reports of 200 missing people.Forty-five had been located and the department said it was confident that many of the rest would be found safe.About 25,000 people have been evacuated in Sonoma County alone, the department said, and 5,000 have sought refuge in shelters.The fires have torched more than 115,000 acres (46,500 hectares) and destroyed over 2,000 homes and businesses, according to the authorities.Winds have weakened -The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) said 17 large fires were continuing to burn on Tuesday.“The winds that fanned these fires Sunday night and Monday morning have decreased significantly, but local winds and dry conditions continue to pose a challenge,” Cal Fire said.“With the decrease in the winds combined with cooler weather, firefighters made good progress overnight,” it added.Governor Brown said the “devastation and disruption caused by these fires is extraordinary.“Thousands have been made homeless.”Much of the worst damage was in Santa Rosa, the county seat of Sonoma County, and could be seen from US Route 101, the north-south highway which runs from California through Oregon to Washington state.The Sonoma County Hilton perched on a hill overlooking 101 was a smoldering ruin of charred wood and twisted metal, as was the nearby Fountaingrove Inn.An enormous K-Mart store was entirely destroyed with only a couple of blackened walls still standing.Among the wineries which reportedly suffered damage were William Hill Estate Winery in Napa, Signorello Vineyards, Stags’ Leap and Chimney Rock.Maureen Fairchild, a nurse, was working at a hospital in Marin County where some of the evacuees were brought.“I was working in a memory-impaired unit,” Fairchild told AFP. “We had all these people who were already confused and now they were in an unfamiliar place with all this frenzy going on around them.”Kris Hammar, who lives in Santa Rosa on the edge of a mandatory evacuation zone, had not yet evacuated but was monitoring maps, wind direction, and fire updates to see if she and her family should bolt.“The fire is close, very close,” Hammer said. “Everything is in the car, and we are checking constantly to see if anything has changed.”‘Boom, boom, boom’ -Troy Newton, 46, a Sonoma County sheriff’s detective, was among those who fled Santa Rosa.Newton told The Los Angeles Times he was returning home when he saw a “growing red snake” of fire.“I ran into my house and told my wife to get our four-year-old boy ready to leave,” Newton said, before raising the alarm for around 40 neighbors.“It was boom, boom, boom. Ring the door bell. Boom, boom-until someone inside got the message,” he said.Pacific Gas & Electric said more than 196,000 customers had initially lost electricity although half had had their power restored.Governor Brown in April declared the official end of the state’s drought that lasted more than five years.But California is still dealing with the Santa Ana winds, a meteorological phenomenon which brings dry winds down from the high mountains east of the coastal areas-a recipe for perfect wildfire conditions.Forest fires are common in the western United States during dry, hot summer months.Last month, a massive fire described as the biggest in the history of Los Angeles forced hundreds to evacuate their homes.
Pope poses with Aung San Suu Kyi during a meeting at the presidential residence in Naypyidaw on 28 November 2017. Photo: ReutersPope Francis on Tuesday urged the leaders of majority-Buddhist Myanmar, mired in a crisis over the fate of Muslim Rohingya people, to commit themselves to justice, human rights and respect for “each ethnic group and its identity”.The pope avoided a diplomatic backlash by not using the highly charged term “Rohingya” in his addresses to officials, including leader Aung San Suu Kyi.However, his words were applicable to members of the beleaguered minority, who Myanmar does not recognise as citizens or as members of a distinct ethnic group.More than 620,000 Rohingya have fled to Bangladesh – where the pope heads on Thursday – since the end of August, escaping from a military crackdown that Washington has said included “horrendous atrocities” aimed at “ethnic cleansing”.Francis made his comments in Naypyitaw, the country’s capital, where he was received by Suu Kyi, the Nobel peace laureate and champion of democracy who has faced international criticism for expressing doubts about the reports of rights abuses against the Rohingya and failing to condemn the military.”The future of Myanmar must be peace, a peace based on respect for the dignity and rights of each member of society, respect for each ethnic group and its identity, respect for the rule of law, and respect for a democratic order that enables each individual and every group – none excluded – to offer its legitimate contribution to the common good,” he said.Myanmar rejects the term “Rohingya” and its use, with most people instead referring to the Muslim minority in Rakhine state as illegal migrants from neighbouring Bangladesh.The pope had used the word Rohingya in two appeals from the Vatican this year.But before the diplomatically risky trip, the pope’s own advisers recommended that he not use it in Myanmar, lest he set off a diplomatic incident that could turn the country’s military and government against minority Christians.Human rights groups such as Amnesty International, which has accused the army of “crimes against humanity”, had urged him to utter it.A hardline group of Buddhist monks warned on Monday – without elaborating – that there would be “a response” if he spoke openly about the Rohingya.RELIGIOUS DIFFERENCES “A FORCE FOR UNITY”Richard Horsey, a former U.N. official and analyst based in Yangon, said the pope’s speech was “very cautiously worded” and “crafted to avoid antagonising local audiences”.”He has clearly taken the advice of his cardinals to avoid weighing in too heavily on the Rohingya crisis, but he certainly alludes to it with a message in his speech on some of the specific points that he makes,” Horsey said.Vatican sources say some in the Holy See believe the trip was decided too hastily after full diplomatic ties were established in May during a visit by Suu Kyi.The pope met privately with Suu Kyi at the presidential palace in this sparsely populated town that became the capital in 2006, and then they both made public addresses at a conference centre.Suu Kyi said in her speech that there had been an erosion of trust and understanding between communities of Rakhine state, but did not refer to the Rohingya.Francis, speaking in Italian, said that as it emerged from nearly 50 years of military rule, Myanmar needed to heal the wounds of the past.He called for a “just, reconciled and inclusive social order”, adding that “the arduous process of peacebuilding and national reconciliation can only advance through a commitment to justice and respect for human rights”.Myanmar’s army, whose leaders the pope met on Monday, has been battling various autonomy-seeking ethnic minority guerrillas for decades.The military has denied the accusations of murder, rape, torture and forced displacement of the Rohingya that have been made against it.The Rohingya exodus from Rakhine state began after Aug. 25, when Rohingya militants attacked security posts and the Myanmar army launched a counter-offensive.Referring to the country’s communal tensions, Francis said religious differences “need not be a source of division and distrust, but rather a force for unity, forgiveness, tolerance and wise nation-building”.He made the same point at an earlier meeting with leaders of the Buddhist, Islamic, Hindu, Jewish and Christian faiths in Yangon, where he called for “unity in diversity”.Aye Lwin, a prominent Muslim leader who was at the interfaith meeting, told Reuters he had asked the pope to appeal to Myanmar’s political leaders “to rescue the religion that we cherish, which could be hijacked by a hidden agenda”.Only about 700,000 of Myanmar’s 51 million people are Roman Catholic. Thousands of them have travelled from far and wide to see him and more than 150,000 people have registered for a mass that Francis will say in Yangon on Wednesday.Francis is expected to meet a group of Rohingya refugees in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, on the second leg of his trip.
