As we get ready for the Galaxy Unpacked event on August 7, we take a look at everything that is known about the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+.Galaxy Note 10 global launch date and time: The Galaxy Unpacked event will take place on Wednesday, August 7 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, at 4pm ET. In India, you will be able to live stream the event at 1:30am IST on August 8.Galaxy Note 10 India launch date and expected price: A recent report by 91Mobiles claimed based on word from a Samsung official that the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ will launch in India on August 20 and will be available for purchase starting August 22.As for the pricing, it is speculated that the regular Note 10 will cost similar to the Galaxy Note 9 in India, which is around Rs 67,000 for the base model. This is based on the reported US pricing of the Note 10 that is said to start at USD 949. The Galaxy Note 10+, on the other hand, will likely start at USD 1,099, which comes to Rs 77,400 in India.Galaxy Note 10 display: As you may know by now, there will be two Galaxy Note 10 phones, a regular Note 10 and a plus-sized Note 10+. Both the phones will look similar with squared edges and glass design with vertical camera setup on the back. They will, however, differ in size with the Note 10 rumoured to sport a 6.3-inch FHD+ (2280×1080) Dynamic AMOLED display and the Note 10+ getting a 6.8-inch QHD+ (3040×1440) Dynamic AMOLED screen.advertisementGalaxy Note 10 processor: It has been reported multiple times that the Galaxy Note 10 phones will pack an updated Exynos 9825 chipset. Earlier this week, Samsung teased the launch of a new Exynos chipset on August 7, which is believed to be the Exynos 9825. The successor to the Exynos 9820 is reportedly based on a 7nm process and will offer a slight bump in performance, improved efficiency and AI.Galaxy Note 10 RAM and storage variants: Samsung will be quite generous with RAM and storage for the Galaxy Note 10 series. The regular Note 10 will come in 256GB and 512GB of internal storage with up to 8GB of RAM, while the Note 10+ will launch with up to 1TB of internal storage and 12GB of RAM. Moreover, the flagship will likely offer storage expandability up to 1TB. This means you can theoretically get up to 2TB of total storage if you purchase the top-end Note 10+ with a 1TB microSD card, which might be hard to find and will definitely cost you a bomb.Galaxy Note 10 S Pen: Samsung will announce a new S Pen with a feature called Air Gestures which will allow users to perform certain actions without having to touch the display of the phone. The S Pen will come with Bluetooth LE support like the Note 9 S Pen, allowing you to use the stylus as a report to take selfies, change slides of a presentation and more.Galaxy Note 10 camera: The number of cameras on the Note 10 and Note 10+ will increase compared to the Note 9. The Note 10 is expected to offer a vertical triple camera setup, while the Note 10+ will get a quad camera system.

The Galaxy Note 10+ will get the same three sensors along with an additional ToF camera for depth mapping. Both the Note 10 phones will get a 10MP Dual Pixel front-facing camera housed inside the punch-hole cutout.Galaxy Note 10 battery: The Galaxy Note 10 will house a 3,500mAh battery from what we know and the phone will support 25W fast charging. The Note 10+, however, will pack a larger 4,500mAh battery and is said to be the first Samsung phone to support 45W fast charging.Galaxy Note 10 colour options: Both the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ are expected to come in Aura Black, Aura Glow and Aura White colours.

zoom The new directive requiring ships sailing in areas such as the North and Baltic Seas and the English Channel to reduce their sulphur emissions by 90 per cent needs significant international control and enforcement to ensure that ignoring the directive does not become an attractive option, according to the Danish Shipowners’ Association.The new directive has been in force since January 1, 2015, and not respecting the low-sulphur limits will be detrimental to both the climate, and to the competitiveness of Danish ships, the association says, adding that international enforcement of the directive is necessary to avoid the creation of economic incentives to cheat.”There is a lot of money to be made in circumventing the requirements of the Directive, and that makes effective international enforcement crucial. Without enforcement, we risk losing the environmental and health related improvements. Similarly, law-abiding shipping companies will suffer from unfair competitive disadvantages, and will lose out to those who cheat,” said Senior Adviser Jesper Stubkjaer, Danish Shipowners’ Association.“Ships can be subject to sulphur testing when calling a port in Europe (Port State Control), but when ships leave a port in the North or Baltic Sea bound for a port outside Europe, there is no risk of sulphur inspection. It is these vessels in particular that the Danish Shipowners’ Association fears will deliberately bypass the rules.”
zoom Newbuilding orders of tanker ships have seen a sharp reduction, but the slowing trend needs to be sustained for the longer-term health of the market, global shipping consultancy Drewry said in its Tanker Forecaster.After numerous orders in recent years, newbuilding activity in the tanker market declined sharply in the first quarter of 2016 as only 34 vessels (2.6 million dwt) were ordered during the period, far below the hefty 368 vessels (45 million dwt) ordered in 2015.“Challenging conditions in capital markets and tight credit availability from banks have subdued new ordering. Although this will not arrest the strong fleet growth and corresponding decline in freight rates over the next two years, as many vessels are scheduled to be delivered in 2016-17, it bodes well for the future, especially if this is a reflection of cautious ordering by owners,” Drewry said.However, Drewry believes that if the current decline is just a breather after the hefty ordering in 2015, when owners increased orders to avoid stringent Tier III regulations for the vessels ordered from 1 January 2016, any increase in ordering in the coming months would hurt the longer-term outlook for the tanker market.Despite the slowdown in ordering in the first quarter of the year, the total orderbook remains high at 63.7 million dwt, 18.6% of the crude tanker fleet. About 80% of the vessels in the orderbook are scheduled to be delivered in the next two years, and we expect more than 200 crude tankers to be delivered by the end of 2017.“Newbulding prices declined during the quarter on account of the slowdown in tanker ordering, which coincided with weakness in newbuilding activity in other sectors as well, keeping prices under pressure. If ordering remains weak in the coming quarters, newbuilding prices could soften further,” said Rajesh Verma, Drewry’s lead analyst for tanker shipping.“The tanker market is expected to be oversupplied in the next two years due to hefty deliveries and relatively slow growth in the crude oil trade. If the slowdown in ordering continues further it will keep fleet growth in check in the later years, which in turn will support tonnage utilisation in the tanker market,” added Verma.

India’s Jasprit Bumrah occupied second place.

England opener Jason Roy, who put behind a disappointing Champions Trophy with 103 runs in three T20Is, was rewarded with a career-best 25th position. Virat Kohli continues to be the No. 1-ranked batsman, followed by Aaron Finch and Kane Williamson.England gained two points after their 2-1 victory over South Africa, allowing them to take control of the second spot on the team rankings. Although they had held the same position earlier, it had been together with Pakistan, who have now dropped to No. 3.
