After being unveiled way back in November last year, the Galaxy A12 is finally coming to India. As per a recent report, this should have actually already happened this week. Since that didn’t transpire, we can only assume that the phone will appear on shelves in the county any day now.
An alleged specs sheet for the local variant of the Galaxy A12 has now surfaced, hinting further at an imminent release. If the leaked table is to be believed, Samsung won’t really be altering the hardware on the Galaxy A12 at all. The only notable detail being that the Indian version will only be available with 4GB of RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of storage. A theory further backed-up by the official India support page for the handset, which also recently went up.
Whereas internationally, the Galaxy A12 can also be had in a 3GB/32GB variant and a 6GB/128GB one.

The source also adds that the Indian Galaxy A12 will be sold in Blue, White and Black colors, which does leave out the Red one. Other than that, the Galaxy A12 still packs a 6.5″ HD+, Infinity-V, IPS display, MediaTek Helio P35 chipset and is powered by a big 5,000 mAh battery, with 15W charging via Type-C. The camera setup includes a 48MP main snapper on the back, alongside a 5MP ultrawide, 2MP depth and 2MP macro units and 8MP on the front. There is also a side-mounted fingerprint reader added to the mix.
We still don’t have any official info on pricing and availability, but the particular leakster of this info does offer what seems like a very plausible guess – INR 12,999 or right around $180. It will also be quite interesting to see if Samsung decides to wait and release the Galaxy A12 alongside the Galaxy F62, which is currently slated for a mid-February unveiling.
‘Genshin Impact’ 1.4 Preview Gives Out New Primogem Gift Codes, Reveals New Banners – Forbes
Genshin Impact has just revealed some details about the coming Update 1.4 as 1.3 starts to wind down here after the release of Hu Tao. To start with, we have three new gift codes that you can redeem for 300 primogems total, plus 50,000 Mora and some Hero’s Wit XP and Mystic Ore.
Redeem the codes here after you log in with your account:
Past that, however, we learned more about the upcoming banners, and the game has taken the unusual step of new debuting any new 5 stars in 1.4. At least not with the two banners being shown.
The first banner will mark the return of Venti, which we already knew.
The second banner will mark the return of Childe (Tartaglia), and will also feature the new 4 star, Rosaria, the cryo polearm user from the Albedo questline.
Given that we have been getting three banners an update, there’s a chance that yes, we could see a new 5 star in the third banner, just like we saw Hu Tao with this one.
Genshin Impact also showed off some upcoming visual novel-type stories that will become a permanent part of the game, featuring older characters like Barbara, Noelle, Bennet and Chongyun, how exactly these will function and what the rewards will be for them are unclear, but it looks to be a departure in style from the character quests we’ve had so far. Perhaps less work to animate, if they’re in the style of visual novels.
A few other minor additions revealed in the 1.4 stream:
- You can lower your world level once per day if you want.
- You can toggle auto cook.
- You can showcase your namecards, not just one.
- There will be a new boss added.
- There will be a new area added (not a huge one).
- There will be a new event with three types of minigames, and you will get a new limited time bow, similar to the Dragonspine sword.
It’s a lot, and we still have more details all this still to come. Update 1.4 will be here in just under two weeks I believe, and there will be more previews for it ahead of that. Until then, start saving for the return of two of Genshin’s best heroes, I suppose.
2021 Canadian Car of the Year finalists announced ahead of top pick reveal – Driving
The 2021 AJAC Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year committee revealed its six finalists early March, ahead of the reveal of a single pick in each category later in the month.
Members of the Automotive Journalist Association of Canada tested and then voted on the selections from a pool of new 2021-model-year vehicles, and the individual results were tabulated by international accounting firm KPMG.
The three finalists for Canadian Car of the Year are the Genesis G80, Kia K5, and the Mazda3. The Mazda3 was the recipient of the 2020 award, and recently received the award for Best Mid-size Car in Canada for 2021. The Genesis G80 was declared the Best Mid-size Premium Car in Canada for 2021, while the Kia K5 earned similar honours as the Best Large Car in Canada for 2021.
The three finalists for Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year are the Genesis GV80, Kia Telluride, and Nissan Rogue. The GV80 has already gained acclaim as the Best Mid-size Premium Utility Vehicle in Canada for 2021, while the Kia Telluride similarly earned the Best Large Utility Vehicle in Canada for 2021 award. Finally, the Nissan Rogue took home Best Mid-size Utility Vehicle in Canada for 2021.
The awards are usually presented at a ceremony during the Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS) in Toronto, but due to the pandemic, that event was cancelled for 2021. Instead, the winners for the awards will be announced on The Morning Show on Global Television, on March 30, 2021.
Tsartlip First Nation 'outraged' after Green MLA revealed COVID-19 outbreak – Victoria News – Victoria News
The Tsartlip First Nation expressed outrage this week after Green MLA Adam Olsen revealed that the community had been experiencing a COVID-19 outbreak – a fact that the First Nation chose not to make public after witnessing the racism faced by the Cowichan Tribes after an outbreak there.
On March 2, Olsen, the representative for Saanich North and the Islands, shared on social media that the Tsartlip had been under shelter-in-place orders for several weeks and that all adults would be receiving a vaccine dose shortly. He added that as a member and resident of the nation, he too would be vaccinated on March 3.
I am a member and resident of Tsartlip, I will receive my vaccine on Wednesday March 3, 2021.
I am providing this information about getting vaccinated earlier than anticipated because I believe transparency is critical. 3/
— Adam Olsen (@AdamPOlsen) March 3, 2021
In a public statement on Thursday, Chief Don Tom called Olsen’s announcement “highly offensive” and said the MLA had overstepped his role. He said the Tsartlip First Nation experienced an outbreak at the end of January and members were ordered to shelter-in-place starting Feb. 8. He said the last positive test was on Feb. 6 and that the nation currently has no active cases of COVID-19.
“Tsartlip has a right to self-determination, we cannot have an MLA misrepresenting our First Nation, and taking liberties to make public statements without consulting Tsartlip,” Tom said, adding that Olsen owed the community a public apology.
The same day, Olsen called Tom to offer his “unreserved apology” and shared an open letter on social media acknowledging it is not his role as an MLA to speak on behalf of the nation.
“I know these past weeks have been an incredibly difficult time for our community and I’m devastated that my actions have increased anxiety,” he wrote. “You have my commitment that this situation will not be repeated, and I fully accept your frustration and anger with my actions.”
Tom emphasized that the Tsartlip First Nation had specifically chosen to keep the outbreak private after witnessing the “cruel racism” members of the Cowichan Tribes experienced after an outbreak was declared in January. The Cowichan Tribes issued a stay-at-home order until Jan. 22 after more than 70 COVID-19 cases were reported.
According to Derek Thompson, Cowichan Tribes general manager, racism towards members of the First Nation increased immediately after the outbreak was disclosed.
“We chose to not subject Tsartlip members to this and kept our outbreak status private,” Tom said, noting that after Olsen revealed the situation, the First Nation was forced to address the outbreak publicly and clarify the situation. “Our membership now feel angst and worry for their social well-being.”
