OnePlus Nord N100

After making a big splash with the launch of the flagship OnePlus 8T, the brand is ready to put itself in the spotlight again with the launch of a new mid-range, the OnePlus Nord N100. This is a smartphone that has given a lot to talk about, especially because everything indicates that this will be the cheapest smartphone ever launched by the company.

Some time ago, the renowned leaker OnLeaks confirmed that the presentation date of the new smartphone would be on October 26, tomorrow. In addition, it is also known that it will be available for purchase from November 10th. Now, it was Ishan Agarwal’s turn to get ahead and confirm details about the specifications of the new midrange.

OnePlus Nord N100

Despite presenting considerably modest specifications, the OnePlus Nord N100 is guaranteed to be a sales success, considering that it will reach the market with a price of just 199 euros.

OnePlus Nord N100 specifications

  • 6.52 “inch LCD screen with HD + resolution
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 64GB of internal memory
  • Triple rear camera: 13MP + 2MP + 2MP
  • 8 megapixel front camera
  • 5,000mAh battery (no information about possible fast charging)
  • Android 11, OxygenOS 11

This is not the first time that these specifications are referred to by leakers so it seems that this will be the hardware present in the new Nord N100.

The new strategy of OnePlus has been extremely well received by its fans, who have long been asking for the arrival of more affordable smartphones, reminiscing a little of what the brand represented in its beginning. Although it does not have the specifications that many could wish for, but it will be interesting to see what the Nord N100 will have to offer.

Even with the “limited” specifications, it is almost certain that the OxygenOS interface will allow the performance of this new smartphone to be impeccable.

The latest James Bond on HBO or Netflix? It has come to pose

A very complicated year for the cinema

We will not tell you anything new if we tell you that the Cinema industry is hitting rock bottom. The long periods of quarantine forced the complete closure of the rooms, causing an unprecedented stoppage. Not only that. If after the de-escalation, we had been able to go en masse to the cinema, the business could have started to recover, however, an opening that has taken longer than expected and some measures (necessary, for our own safety) that forced us to limit the capacity has ended causing the billboards to walk practically deserted.

Many firms have chosen to postpone their releases for next year, knocking down other titles in a chain, while others have even dared to try it directly in the streaming platforms, jumping to the big screen.

Mulan

The most notorious case was that of Mulan, that after shuffling several alternative dates, he surprised by sneaking into the Disney + catalog. This was quite a traicion for the movie theaters that saw how Disney left them without one of the great titles of the year, but it would be better that they go stomach because perhaps it is not the only film that gives them a similar “surprise” …

No Time to Die went straight to streaming

If you are a fan of the stories of agent James Bond, you will know that this end of the year the premiere of No Time To Die. The film, however, and like many others, has moved to 2021, but not before having seriously considered a jump to some on-demand content platform. What you are reading.

This is reported in Variety, where they point out that executives of MGM (owner of its distribution rights) were considering selling the film to a streaming service. Specifically, it seems that the Apple platform and the famous Netflix were raised on the table, which could have bought the rights for 600 million dollars.

No time to die

However, the deal was not that simple. Many companies are involved in a project of this budget, including sponsors such as Land Rover or Heineken, as well as production partners and even theatrical distributors who have already signed for their rights with Universal Pictures for distribution abroad.

This makes the deal tremendously complex, which would have ultimately resulted in the idea being aborted. MGM has chosen not to confirm or deny this information, claiming that they do not comment on rumors. They have also reaffirmed that «the movie is not for sale“And that the premiere of the film has been postponed until April 2021 to” preserve the theatrical experience of moviegoers. “

DOOM takes new life in Minecraft with this remake

DOOM takes new life in Minecraft with this remake

DOOM … cubed

DOOMED Minecraft

The result it offers us DOOMED: Demons of the Nether It is surprising to say the least, since at first glance it looks like a normal and ordinary pixelated shooter, however, the surprise comes when we look at the details. And it is actually a very approximate representation almost like a remake of the first DOOM of 2016, since it has the same sounds and an extremely similar mapping of the original game.

But of course, the peculiarity here is that all the graphics are generated in Minecraft, since its creator, Sibogy, has decided to bring the hellish universe of DOOM to life using the game’s famous cubes. The result, as you can see, is amazing, since it feels like a real shooter, without obviously losing the essence of the Minecraft world for obvious reasons.

The mime impregnated in the design of the level is finished off with the use of the original DOOM sounds, since we will be able to hear the shots and the sound effects that sound in the ID Software game.

As can be seen in the gameplay video, the game system presented is identical to that of the original DOOM, since the player will activate a kind of dungeon full of demons that they will have to annihilate in order to continue opening the next gate. As you can see, the demons are not especially similar to the ones in the original game, but you already know that it is part of the charm of Minecraft.

Not a mod

DOOMED Minecraft

The most striking thing is that its creator ensures that the project is completed using the original game resource packs, and a lot, a lot of command line, but at no time have modifications been used that go beyond the original graphics of the game .

Can you play?

DOOMED Minecraft

No. The project is still quite green, and there is no complete level at the moment, so beyond the two demo videos that its creator has shared, for now we won’t be able to see much more than that.

Making money with Instagram live is getting closer and closer

Making money with Instagram live is getting closer and closer

What are Instagram Live Badges

Instagram knows very well, like many other social platforms, that its success depends to a large extent on users who constantly create content, both in the feed itself and through stories, live events and even via IGTV.

For this reason, and knowing that it was time to do something so that the most active users see their dedication and effort rewarded, Instagram has decided to introduce a new tool with which to generate income directly: the Instagram Live badges.

What’s this Instagram Live Badge thing? Well, if you know what YouTube Super Chats or Twitch Bits are, you already know exactly what this is all about. Basically it is a series of badges for which users can pay and obtain different benefits compared to other users when they comment on Instagram live.

If you usually see direct on Instagram you will already know that when there are a significant number of users inside and they also comment, it is very difficult to read each and every one of those comments. And that being just another spectator, so imagine for said creator how complicated it can be if he does not have help.

Well, these Instagram badges are going to have a double use. On the one hand, for those who see the content, they will provide the possibility that their comment is highlighted above the rest and remains visible for more time. This way it will be much easier for whoever is doing the live to see it and be able to answer, thank or what they create appropriate.

For the creator, it is also a new way of obtaining income because these badges have a cost of $ 0.99, $ 1.99, or $ 4.99. And for now, according to the company, 100% of the revenue goes directly to the creator.

How to use the new Instagram Live badges

The use of Instagram badges has no mystery, neither for users nor for creators. Basically, when you are in live shows you will see at the bottom of the screen the possibility of accessing them and supporting the creator. Once you give him to buy a badge, the different options will appear, you select and that’s it. Although for that you will have to have a valid payment system activated through Google Play or the Apple Store.

However, it is important that you know that at the moment this is a option that is not available to everyone. Instagram is testing the use of the badges among a small group of about 50,000 content creators. So only they can offer that option to their fans and from now until it is launched in a generalized way it may take some time.

Then it will be necessary to see if, as with the use of links to external websites, they decide that only profiles with a specific number of users can or cannot access them. This will be seen, for the moment it is an interesting novelty that will generate more interest in order to create content on the network.

Monetization options on Instagram

With the launch of the Instagram Live badges the platform expands its monetization options. Thus, after the IGTV ads launched last spring (still in the testing phase) now comes a new way to earn income from creators.

On what reception it will have and if it will really help to further promote the use of the Internet as a platform for live events, it will be necessary to be patient. What is true is that after seeing the economic results they had to do something like that. Because Instagram generates significant income and those are partly thanks to the activity of its user community.

Therefore, if you want your most important users not to end up leaving the network, you have to provide them with ways to generate real money and one can be these badges. Even more so if after the confinement the increase in the consumption of videos for money rose by 70%.

The New TLOU Patch Remastered

The last of us

Not having enough to launch what is possibly the best game of the current generation, Naughty Dog have decided to improve previous works, and for them they have worked on a new patch for the remastered version of The last of us, update 1.11, with which some especially surprising improvements have been achieved.

As you can in the video below, the new version of the game has drastically reduced loading times on PS4, being able to go from the minute and 30 seconds it takes to start a new game to an incredible 13.86 seconds after the patch.

In addition, the loading times are also improved when loading a previously saved game, since from 2 minutes and 3 seconds it goes to another spectacular 13.86 seconds, curiously the same figure as in the new game.

Good news for speedruns

The last of us

This finding has been discovered by a person who will greatly appreciate these improvements, since the news came from Anthony Calabrese, a well-known speedrunner who stands out for achieving record times when completing the game. This user has ensured that this patch has allowed him to reduce the time of the game in 18 seconds thanks to improved load times during the fight scene with David.

Why these changes?

The last of us

That Naughty Dog releases a patch of a well-established game and manages to considerably increase the performance of it, is something quite strange. The company may want to close the loop by leaving everything to perfection, or it may be preparing the game’s backward compatibility to run smoothly on PS5. But, if PS4 has benefited so much from these changes, does that mean we’ll see more examples like this in other games?

If super-fast loading times is one of the PS5’s biggest selling points, getting a feature like that to match on PS4 would slow down some sales, as users might be satisfied with the performance the new games offer. In addition, taking into account that to get the most out of PS5 we need a television with HDMI 2.1 or a monitor with HDMI 2.1 (which do not exist today), the outlay so large that it is needed may stop many and they choose to continue playing with your PS4, even more so with these types of improvements. We will see what happens, but if it is for the good of the users, welcome.

Microsoft Edge will receive functionality that can shake Google Chrome!

0
Microsoft Edge Google Chrome

The browser world has been clearly dominated by Google Chrome over the years, being the most widely used browser of all time and on virtually all platforms. Its rivals can do little or nothing to “scratch” its popularity, but Microsoft now has a secret weapon.

Since they launched their new Microsoft Edge, the Microsoft browser has become increasingly popular with Windows users. Interestingly, the new Edge is based on the Chromium platform, developed by Google. In its version 88, Edge will receive a new feature called “Startup Boost”, which promises to win over users.

Microsoft Edge Google Chrome

How “Startup Boost” will work in Microsoft Edge

This will be another very simple feature, which can have a big impact on the user experience for millions of users. Once implemented, Microsoft Edge will start a set of processes each time the computer is started.

With these secondary processes active, the process of starting Microsoft Edge will be almost instantaneous, almost as if it were simply minimized. It is important to emphasize that these processes will not have any impact on the performance of the computer, since they will run with “low priority”.

Considering all the controversies that Microsoft has been subject to after the recent Windows updates, it is also important to emphasize that everything points to this feature being optional. In order for users to activate “Startup Boost”, you need to access the system settings on the Edge.

After a legacy tarnished by constant flops with respect to its browsers, it seems that Microsoft has finally managed to get on the right track. Shortly after it was officially launched, Microsoft Edge based on Chromium has become increasingly popular with Windows users.

Currently, it is even considered as the best alternative to Google Chrome, especially for Windows 10 users.

Nintendo Switch: fans frustrated by the postponement of the Apex Legends arrival

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch

Increasingly, Nintendo Switch presents itself as an excellent alternative to Xbox One and PS4, especially since it started receiving some of the most popular games today. However, not everything is going smoothly this end of year.

During EA Play Live 2020, it was confirmed that Apex Legends would be one of the 7 games that EA would bring to Nintendo Switch in 2020, but it will not happen. Apparently, the team of programmers is not satisfied with the progress made and ended up revealing that they need more time.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch

So, in order to “do justice to the game and make it the great experience that Switch players deserve”, the launch of Apex Legends for the Nintendo console was postponed to 2021. Unfortunately, they did not risk pointing to a specific date.

COVID-19 pandemic made yet another victim in the world of video games

Since the COVID-19 pandemic was established earlier this year, the many market segments have been hit hard. The world of video games was no exception and, with most teams of programmers being forced to resort to remote work, there were long delays.

After several high-profile titles have seen their release date postponed, now it’s Apex Legends’ turn. This Battle Royale managed to conquer a prominent place in the world of video games, managing to rival Fortnite, PUBG and Call of Duty Mobile.

With its eventual arrival on the Nintendo Switch, we are sure to see its number of active players rise exponentially, especially as support for cross-platform. For players on PC, it is also worth remembering that Apex Legends will also be available on Steam from November 4th.

Tesla Autopilot: video shows trip (almost) totally done with autopilot!

Recently, Tesla started offering the first beta version of the true autonomous driving functionality (FSD), which gives real meaning to the popular Tesla Autopilot package. Now that a restricted group of users already have the opportunity to test the new functionality, the first videos start to appear, and they are impressive!

One of the most complete videos was published by the user James Locke, which published a 30-minute video showing his Tesla making a real commute between his wife’s work and the superchargers from Tesla.

Mode Full Self Driving Tesla’s is as impressive as it is scary

In this video, we can see countless situations where the Tesla FSD is truly impressive, managing to control the car perfectly. However, it is impossible not to try to put on the driver’s skin, and feel that this type of trip would always be done with one foot on the brake, for fear that something will go wrong at any time.

In several situations, the user took advantage of the car’s stopping moments to bring the camera closer to the navigation panel, where we can see in detail how the car recognizes all the elements that surround it. In addition to the great detail and speed in identifying and reproducing elements such as cars and people on the screen, the distance the Tesla can reach is also impressive, even with objects obstructing its field of view.

Another segment of the video that impresses us occurs at the 27th minute, where we see the car leave the highway for the national road. The transition is made perfectly and extremely smoothly, as if a person were controlling the car.

Tesla Autopilot is getting closer and closer to the main goal of Elon Musk

Elon Musk has long dreamed of the possibility of making an autonomous driving mode available to his users, having even revealed his desire to create a fleet of autonomous Taxis.

Although it is necessary to overcome numerous barriers until it obtains legal permissions for this mode to be used on the roads in all countries where Tesla is present, that moment is getting closer and closer.

HP's new DreamColor monitors are worth knowing

HP Z25xs G3 and Z27xs G3 DreamColor

When looking for a new monitor for the desktop, laptop or even to use it together with the game console, it is usual to turn to brands such as LG, Samsung or Asus and it is not at all strange because they certainly have high quality products .

Even so, sometimes we ignore other brands that also offer high quality products and not always at a price as higher as some have to think. One of them is HP, the well-known manufacturer of printing products has long offered one of the best 27-inch screens and 4K resolution on the market for all those users who demand the highest image quality.

Now HP renews its line of DreamColor monitors and it introduces two new models that will most likely become new benchmarks for all those photographers, video editors and users who, in general, find having a good representation of color, brightness and contrast something super important.

The news HP Z25xs G3 Y HP Z27xs G3 They are screens that come with the promise of offering the best possible quality that the brand is capable of offering, in addition to the latest technologies in connection issues. Thus, these new monitors offer USB C connection so you can connect modern devices with the advantages provided by said connector, although it is not the only one integrated.

The DreamColor line of monitors also offers HDMI.20 connection, DisplayPort 1.4 input and output and together with the possibility of carrying the video signal through the two USB C connectors, these also offer the possibility of charging the connected devices. One of them offers a 100 W charging power and while the other of only 15 W.

Of course, this is only at the level of connectivity, something that today we value and should be valued, but that really is not the most important thing at all if it meets minimums. The quality of the panel is what attracted many to the HP Z27 and will continue to attract them.

The kind of 27 inches will offer a panel with 4K resolution while the model of 25 inches will go down to QHD resolution, the minimum that today would have to be required unless it is a screen that is going to be used only to play. And yet it is always more interesting to bet on options above 1080p.

Along with this data, the new monitors also offer a PANTONE-validated color representation, which a priori promises great accuracy. Something that is enhanced by a brightness level that exceeds 400 nits and enables them to work with HDR content.

Price and availability

With everything I read, these new HP DreamColor displays are positioned as two of the models to keep track of if you are looking to renew your current monitor. The only drawback is that you will still have to wait a few months, because they will not go on sale until end of the first quarter of 2021.

For the rest, the price is not bad, initially they will be around the 750 and 600 dollars respectively for the 27 and 25 inch model. It is true that they are above what other manufacturers offer, but by quality and even design they are well justified. Although if you have a little calm, it is also very likely that it will end up going down in price and they will become even more attractive.

Realme will launch Qualcomm edition of its budget smartphones. Fans will love it!

0
Realme C15 Qualcomm Edition

Realme has managed to achieve great popularity, not only in China and India, but also in the various European markets. Much of this success is due to the attractive price of its high-end and mid-range / high-end smartphones. However, the brand also has excellent offers in the budget segment.

But, especially for international markets, one of the main obstacles to the success of these smartphones is the presence of a MediaTek processor. In August, when the Realme C15, C12 and C11 were launched, the CEO of Realme India – Madhav Sheth – confirmed that if fans so desire, there could be a “Qualcomm edition” of these models.

Realme C15 Qualcomm Edition confirmed by leaker and several details revealed

Over the past few months, we have become accustomed to having information about Realme confirmed by the already recognized leaker Mukul Sharma, who usually reveals credible information about the brand. In one of his recent tweets, the leaker confirmed the existence of the Realme C15 Qualcomm Edition, with some information about the smartphone.

Realme C15 Qualcomm Edition

Although much of its main information has not been confirmed, we learned that it comes with two memory options (4GB / 64GB and 3GB / 32GB) and in two colors: silver and blue.

Unfortunately, Sharma says he still doesn’t have concrete information about the processor that will be integrated in this new version of Realme C15. Rumors indicate that it could be the Snapdragon 460 or Snapdragon 662.

Just got to know that Realme might launch the Realme C15 Qualcomm Edition in India. Color variants: Power Blue and Power Silver.4GB / 64GB and 3GB / 32GB.#realme # realmec15

– Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings) October 23, 2020

Even though no concrete information about this new model is known, it seems unlikely that the manufacturer will decide to implement major changes to its hardware. So it is to be expected that it is not very different from the already official Realme C15.

Realme C15 specifications

  • 6.5 “inch IPS LCD screen with HD + resolution and drop-shaped notch
  • MediaTek Helio G35 processor (which will be replaced by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor)
  • 3GB / 4GB RAM
  • 32GB / 64GB RAM
  • Four rear cameras: 13MP + 8MP (ultrawide) + 2MP (monochrome) + 2MP (depth)
  • 8 megapixel front camera
  • Fingerprint reader on the rear panel
  • 6,000mAh battery with fast charging at 18W
  • Android 10, Realme UI 1.0

As for the price of the new model, there is still no concrete information. If you arrive with a price similar to the original model, you can be around € 110.

Xbox Series X. Microsoft sends unbelievable birthday gift to Snoop Dogg!

With the launch day of the new Xbox Series X getting closer (November 10), there is more and more news about the next generation console. However, certainly no one expected Microsoft to send such a gift to the famous rapper Snoop Dogg.

Since its design was officially confirmed, numerous memes circulate that compare the Xbox Series X to a refrigerator. In addition, it has been known for a long time that Snoop Dogg is a hard-core Xbox fan. Microsoft decided to combine the useful with the pleasant and on his birthday, he offered Snoop Dogg a fridge in the form of Series X.

The rapper even published a video on his Twitter revealing the gift, which was eventually deleted. But, as we all know, once on the internet … forever on the internet.

Snoop Dogg’s fridge was full of surprises

As you would expect, they didn’t just send a fridge for the rapper to put his stuff on. When opening his gift, Snoop found many surprises. Among the items present, you can see a cake with the shape of the console that says “Happy Birthday to the Xbox OG”, an Xbox Series X, a lot of Gin and juice (honor to your music), several pieces of jewelry with an Xbox theme and a lot of more.

In the style of the legendary Snoop Dogg, the video ends with the famous tagline from EA Sports: “It’s in the game.”

While many comments in the video have accused Microsoft of “gifting” celebrities who have little or nothing to know about, or do for the gaming world, this is certainly not the case for Snoop Dogg. The rapper is an avid gamer and a longtime Xbox fan.

US again fails to attack China. After TikTok, one more App survived!

WeChat USA

The United States has long been in an open war with the various Chinese services, applications and manufacturers. After prolonged attacks on Huawei and ZTE, Donald Trump’s government later turned to popular TikTok and WeChat applications. Everything indicated that Trump would even succeed in banning the world-popular social network, but he ended up not following through on the threats.

Now, although the government is determined to ban WeChat from the United States, the judge responsible for the decision has confirmed once again that this will not happen. New evidence was presented which, according to the government, proves that the application represented a clear danger to national security, an opinion that ended up not being shared by the judge.

WeChat USA

Trump administration wanted much more than just banning WeChat

As with Huawei, the US government’s intentions went far beyond a simple WeChat ban on American territory. The government also wanted to ban any type of transaction between the Chinese company and American companies.

This was the type of ban that caused the most damage to Huawei, preventing it from being able to buy essential components for its smartphones, as well as continuing to use Google services.

In the case of WeChat, in addition to obviously hurting the company, it would also seriously affect numerous American giants. Given this possibility, big companies like Apple and Disney quickly made themselves heard. Disney recalled that this decision could prevent them from accepting payments with WeChat at Disneyland in Hong Kong and Shanghai.

For its part, Apple believes that the ban on being able to use WeChat to sell its devices in China could represent a drop of up to 30%, which would result in large millions of euros in losses.

Looking at Huawei’s patent, we can see that the foldable smartphone follows the same ideologies as the Samsung and Motorola model. However, it is getting ready to give us a super screen on the front.

So far, the screens of Samsung and Motorola are more for visualizing small information and not for interaction. It is plausible to imagine that Huawei changes this paradigm with this model. This is because the screen has considerably larger proportions than the competitors.

We also see a smartphone with only a dual camera installed. However, we have to imagine that this camera will serve as the main and front camera.

This is because, it is fully believed that the smaller screen can serve as a “mirror” for selfies and that the size is sufficient for a video call.

As for the rest, there is not much information. We have no idea if Huawei will follow the same path as Motorola and Samsung on the display hinge. We also have no clear idea of ​​what technology they will use on the screen.

Unfortunately, a patent is just that. It does not guarantee that we will have the smartphone on the market, it just tells us that the company has worked seriously to develop it and that it is important to the point of patenting it.

Mario and Force Dynamics

Mario Force Dynamics

None of this would be possible (or at least quite complicated), if the protagonist of this spectacular modification was not David Wiernicki, and it is that it is neither more nor less than the director of Force Dynamics, a well-known company in charge of creating cockpits. motorized with which to experiment movements and G forces coordinated with a simulation, in most cases, car simulators.

You have probably seen countless videos with demonstrations of Force Dynamics systems, however, today is a rather peculiar modification, since instead of reading the variables of a video game and representing them in the cockpit, this time the system receives lateral and longitudinal load signals directly from a toy. Yes, the stroller Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit.

A very real simulation

The result is incredible, since in addition to responding incredibly well, the feeling of driving through the corridors of the house thanks to the camera built into the toy is almost the best of the system. To achieve this, they have attached an accelerometer, a small battery and a wireless sensor to the small kart, in order to transmit all the telemetry necessary to move the seat to the cabin system.

But do not think that everything has been “so easy”. Taking into account the blows that the small vehicle can take or the sporadic jumps that could generate small potholes or collisions with obstacles, its creators have had to modify the system code to moderately interpret the movements, in order to prevent the person who is sitting on the seat fly off with a sudden movement.

Augmented reality to another level

The augmented reality proposal of Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit it was especially clever, but this takes it to another absolutely insane level. Obviously we are talking about a rather expensive system that is not available to everyone, so you will have no choice but to watch the demo video over and over again.

Apple Magsafe Wireless Charger

If you even liked the new Apple wireless charger, MagSafe, and are thinking of buying one of these for your smartphones with wireless charging, you better save your money.

This is because the latest tests state that the Magsafe’s charging speed on an older iPhone (other than the iPhone 12) is considerably slower than another 7.5W Qi charger.

MagSafe is painfully slow for older iPhones

In a simple test, the MacRumors folks put an iPhone Xs Max to charge with Apple’s new wireless charger. The answer was simply unbelievable (in the negative).

Apple Magsafe Wireless Charger

In 30 minutes the iPhone Xs charged up to 13%. In turn, a wireless charger with Qi technology (the most used in any wireless charger) with 7.5W charged about 25% in the same time.

It is worth noting that MagSafe is a wireless charger that gives us 15W of wireless charging. However, such speeds will only be achieved with the new iPhone 12.

Our friend Daniel Pinto showed us this MagSafe a little. An elegant, small charger with a small magnet that “sticks” to the iPhone 12.

Do not expect a fantastic grip, however, it will let you know whenever the phone is charging and that you will not wake up the next day without a battery and with the disappointment that you placed it slightly beside the pad.

In short, if you are looking for a wireless charger for your iPhone (other than iPhone 12), the best solution is to look at other models of chargers. They are cheaper and will load faster.

In this case, the rapper, who is known for his taste for video games and Xbox, received the refrigerator as a congratulations on his birthday, hence the inside had a cake, juices and gins in honor of his song Gin & Juice.

We know that Snoop Dogg has one of these refrigerators because the rapper published it on his Instagram account, and although he quickly deleted it, the networks did not take long to replicate the publication so that no one would miss it. Taking into account that the refrigerator appears in a completely green background for what could supposedly be the recording of a video, we may be facing some kind of scene from a future video clip or something similar.
