The New TECNO Smartphone Could Come with A Blink and Snap Technology

Africa’s leading smartphone brand TECNO Mobile is set to unleash another smartphone wonder from its CAMON series which we hear will be showcased on 5th April 2018  at a Global Spring Launch which will happen in Lagos and our sources made sure to inform us that the event will be one that has never been experienced in Africa before.

Nonetheless, the device to be launched is said to debut a futuristic “blink and snap”.

The technology is expected to better the process of capturing photos on a smartphone. Arguably, smartphone makers have realized that beyond camera ratings, other elements such as the accessibility of the camera, the focus speed and the ease of capturing images amongst others are also important. With the “blink and snap” technology on the TECNO device (that is, if the rumors are true), photography enthusiasts will be able to capture an image when the camera is in Selfie mode by just blinking their eyes. With the speed of their blink, users will be able to capture multiple fast-moving actions as they happen ingenious. Though we have not been able to lay our hands on even a spy shot of the device however, we have received intel from a reliable source that this highly sort after device will be available in local markets starting from early second quarter. However, all we have heard from our sources states that the new device will flaunt several upgrades on the camera which will leave users amazed.

 

We are on standby to experience this device and as soon as we get more verifiable information concerning the device, you can be rest assured we will share it with you. But, for now our fingers are crossed.

Charcoal toothpastes ‘don’t whiten teeth’

Charcoal-based toothpastes, which claim to whiten teeth, are a “marketing gimmick” which could increase the risk of tooth decay and staining, says a review in the British Dental Journal.

The charcoal products, which are increasingly popular, often contain no fluoride to help protect the teeth.

And there is no scientific evidence to back up the claims they make, the authors say.

Excessive brushing with them can do more harm than good, they add.

They advise people to go to their dentist for advice on bleaching, or whitening, their teeth.

And they say it is better to stick to using a regular fluoride-based toothpaste.

Charcoal was first used for oral hygiene purposes in ancient Greece, as a way of removing stains from teeth and disguising unpleasant odours from diseased gums.

Celebrity effect


Dr Joseph Greenwall-Cohen, co-author of the study from the University of Manchester Dental School, said “more and more shops are selling charcoal-based toothpastes and powders”, including Superdrug, Boots and Tesco, after celebrities had started talking about using them.

But he said the claims they made had been found to be unproven by a 2017 US review of 50 products.

Some said they were “anti-bacterial” or “anti-fungal”, that they helped with “tooth whitening” and would “reduce tooth decay”.


The review said people were brushing regularly with the charcoal-based products in the hope that they would offer “a low cost, quick-fix, tooth-whitening option”.
