Remember when new phone announcements used to happen all in one go, at one event, with zero specs being officially outed beforehand by the companies themselves? Well, now everybody's doing just that, and vivo sub-brand iQOO has been applying exactly this formula when it comes to the Neo6 SE. It hadn't talked about this before, but now we know that the Neo6 SE's main rear shooter will be a 64 MP unit with OIS. That seems, on paper at least, identical to the Neo6, which is already launched. The Neo6 SE has the Snapdragon 870, while the Neo6 goes with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.

The new Government, ever eager to strip any credence from their predecessors, scrapped that development pipeline essentially, and oblivious to any real national growth drive, led with their ruinous tax cuts. Sri Lanka collected less revenue than virtually every other country, and has a staggeringly high cost of running an inefficient Government. And one wonders, why the simple math couldn’t be grasped, particularly when the fantasised local investor surge never materialised. Populist leaders often paint in broad brush strokes, and the disciplined execution required for crisis management often eludes them. Foreign debt will now be repaid under the aegis of the IMF as per the Government, which constitutes a form of default, unprecedented for the island nation since achieving independence in 1948.

The iQOO Neo6 SE arriving on May 6 was said to pack a 4,700 mAh battery, and that rumor has turned out to be true since iQOO today announced that the Neo6 SE will have a 4,700 mAh battery under the hood, which will go from 1% to 100% in 30 minutes with its 80W adapter. However, it's worth noting that iQOO achieved those results when it charged the battery in a room with an ambient temperature of 26°C, and the charging time will likely vary depending on your room's ambient temperature. iQOO previously confirmed that the Neo6 SE will be powered by the Snapdragon 870 SoC and have 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage onboard, and you can expect it to reveal more about the smartphone as we inch closer to the May 6 event.

Bishop Evans, who was missing three days before search crews found his body Monday, was among the more than 6,100 guard members stationed on the border as part of Republican Gov. The mission has 43 flotation devices for guard members who are assigned to boat missions, Maj. Gen. Thomas Suelzer said. Suelzer said that since Evans' death, guard members have been instructed not to go in the water unless they have special training. Migrant rescues by Border Patrol are common along Texas' 1,200-mile (1,930-kilometer) border with Mexico. Abbott gave guard members unusual authority last year to detain and arrest migrants, but most on the mission are assigned to observation posts.

If you’re wondering just how weird they can get, here are ten of the creepiest apocalyptic predictions. Much like other apocalyptical predictions, it’s hard to believe that the world will end in 2060. Claims that the comet’s tail contained poisonous cyanogen gas led to widespread doomsday predictions. Applewhite’s apocalyptic predictions gained more publicity in the ’90s after the group learned of the passing of Comet Hale-Bopp. You might think that humans will accept defeat and desist from making doomsday predictions because there isn’t any successful apocalyptic prediction.
