New Samsung Galaxy S23 leak gives us a full look at its design

The Samsung Galaxy S23 rumors and leaks are still coming, and today we've got some promotional images of the Galaxy S23 Plus and the Galaxy S23 Ultra that have hit the internet ahead of an expected February launch. These images come courtesy of 91mobiles (via SamMobile ), a source with a decent track record when it comes to the accuracy of its information. These pictures certainly look like they're authentic, though of course we can't consider them as official just yet. Only a couple of days ago we heard about the 'signature' colors that these phones would come in, which are the colors that will be featured most heavily in promotional materials. Here we can actually see those shades: pink for the Plus and green for the Ultra. More than phones These promo images emphasize the growing ecosystem of Samsung products – the company is about much more than phones or course, and in these pictures we can see wireless earbuds and smartwatches from Samsung too. The Sa

Samsung Galaxy S23 signature colors and new release date leak out

The Samsung Galaxy S23 family of phones isn't expected to show up until February, but we've already heard plenty of rumors and leaks about these devices – and the latest information to reach us concerns the 'signature colors' of the handsets. This is according to SamMobile , which has a good track record of getting details about Samsung products in advance. These signature colors are so called because they're the ones predominantly used in marketing and promotional material. For the standard Galaxy S23 it's apparently going to be green, for the Galaxy S23 Plus it's going to be light gold/pink gold, and for the Galaxy S23 Ultra you can expect pink. Several other color options will be available on all three handsets too. Launch date rumors In a separate leak from well-known tipster Ice Universe , the launch date for the Galaxy S23 has been set as February 1 – that's a Wednesday. Follow-up tweets suggest that for "most of the world" we'r

Exclusive: most social media users encounter scams on a weekly basis at least

Social media users are becoming ever more adept at spotting scams, but many still need to remain alert, an exclusive TechRadar Pro study has found. Firstly, respondents were asked what social media platforms they used. Facebook came out on top with just under 80% being active on the networking site. Instagram was next with 68.1%, and Tiktok and Twitter were closely contested for third place with just under 50% apiece using them (49.8% and 47.5% respectively).  LinkedIn and WhatsApp rounded out the last two of the mainstream platforms, with 35.8% and 33.4% respectively. 6.6% said they used other social media platforms to these, with 3.7% using none at all. Scam spotting The results for how often scams were encountered on social media platforms were pretty evenly split. Just over a third came across them once a day, and just over a quarter said once a week. Only 15% said once a month, and under a third said less than a month. Scams on social media platforms have been on the rise s

Google's Pixel phone plans for 2023 and beyond have leaked

Google's most recent flagship phones are the Google Pixel 7 and the Google Pixel 7 Pro , but a leaked roadmap gives us an idea of the tech giant's Pixel plans for the next few years – all the way up to 2025. We're going to be seeing foldable phones, spec upgrades, and plenty more besides, it seems. This intriguing look into the future comes courtesy of Android Authority , though bear in mind that this is in no way official, and it's not beyond the realms of possibility that Google will change its plans even if this report is currently accurate. Even the source itself says that the roadmap isn't set in stone. With those caveats out of the way, we can dive in. Around Google IO 2023 time in April or May we are apparently getting the Google Pixel Fold (priced at $1,799, which is roughly £1,495 or AU$2,675) and the Google Pixel 7a (apparently price matched to this year's Google Pixel 6a at $449 / £399 / AU$749). Up to 2025 Further out we'll have the Goog

List of Xbox FPS Boost games on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S

Xbox FPS Boost allows select backward-compatible Xbox games to run at double or even quadruple the original framerate without any developer input. So games you remember running at 30fps can now hit the heady heights of 60fps or even 120fps to make for an even better experience.  This feature is only available on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S , so if you're still using a last-gen console, we've got bad news, just because it requires the vastly increased CPU power of these newer platforms to run the games at a higher framerate. We've assembled the complete list of titles applicable to this feature and details on what framerate the games used to run at, how they run now, and any other particulars worth noting. It's worth noting that some Xbox FPS Boost games are considered some of the best Xbox Game Pass games , so it's worth taking a look.  Xbox FPS Boost List of Xbox FPS Boost games Xbox FPS Boost doesn't require any developer input but it is subject to

LastPass confirms customer password vaults were stolen

The data breach incident that hit password manager LastPass earlier this year saw the thieves crooks steal encrypted password vaults belonging customers, the company has confirmed. The password vault is where people keep their passwords, so should the attackers find a way to decrypt the vaults, they’d be able to read all of the passwords saved in there. In an update published on the LastPass blog, CEO Karim Toubba said that the threat actors used cloud storage keys stolen from a LastPass employee to access and exfiltrate customer vault data. The data stolen is a combination of encrypted intelligence - password vaults, and unencrypted information - vault-stored web addresses, names, email addresses, phone numbers, and in some cases - billing information. Master password secure The good news is that the password vaults are stored in a “proprietary binary format”, meaning that it’s close to impossible to actually read the contents. For that, the attackers would need the customer’s
