Some screenshots carried out by the website show that instead of providing the regular One UI 2.5, Samsung has brought One UI 2.5 Core to the Galaxy M-series phone. A user also mentioned the One UI 2.5 Core rollout on Twitter. This suggests that the experience might be contracted from the full-fledged One UI 2.5 to some extent — maybe to offer an optimised experience on the budget phone.Last month, the regular One UI 2.5 update reached models including the Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and the Galaxy A51.

Jovie Espenido not yet off the hook

first_imgEarlier yesterday, Department ofInterior and Local Government secretary Eduardo Año said Espenido’s name shouldhave been removed from the “narco list” given the police officer’s pastvalidations and his efforts in the governmen’’s war on drugs. The President’s statements should alsonot influence the Philippine National Police’s investigation on Espenido, saidPanelo, as the Chief Executive’s views on the police official could change if“credible evidence” is presented. “Panayang huli ng pulis…Marami palang drugs,” said Espenido. “Kungpapakitaan siya (Duterte) ng mga bagong ebidensya na nagpapakitang involved siya (Espenido) eh di ibang usapan ‘yun,” Panelo said. “The President always relieson the presumption of innocence of all people unless you show him na hindi.”Espenido was among the 357 police officers under investigation over allegeddrug links. He had previously earned praise from Duterte for his contributionsto the campaign against illegal drugs. Presidential spokesperson SalvadorPanelo said President Rodrigo Duterte did not exonerate Espenido – who wasincluded in the latest government narco list – despite saying the latter was“clean” and speculating that there is a smear campaign to derail thegovernment’s war on drugs. “’Yungmga nakaraang validation, siguro dapat na-clear nasiya. I don’t know bakit nagingmabagal ‘yung validation of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-IllegalDrugs (ICAD),” said Año yesterday. Even as Espenido tagged Bacolod City“shabulized”, he expressed confidence that “everything has an end.” Aside from being the deputy directorfor operations of the Bacolod City Police Office, Espenido also headed the CityDrug Enforcement Unit – for only three months since October 2019 when he wasassigned to Bacolod City. Espenido was removed from Bacolod Citysome two weeks after describing the metro as “shabulized”. MANILA – Controversial PoliceLieutenant Colonel Jovie Espenido, the sacked deputy director for operations ofthe Bacolod City Police Office, is not yet off the hook. “Yungpinamalas niya na paglaban sa droga doon saOzamiz City, napakalaking factor ‘yun para mag-serve in his favor,” Anoadded, referring to Espenido’s anti-illegal drugs operation against theParojinog clan in Ozamiz City in 2017.Espenido was also the police chief of Albuera, Leyte when the town’s then mayorRolando Espinosa, a drug suspect, was shot dead inside his jail cell in 2016 ina police operation to serve a search warrant. The secretary revealed that Espenidowas included in the drug watch list in December 2016 yet. “Mabentadaw dito…very easy magbili ng drugs. Tingnannatin kung hanggang kailan,” said Espenido./PNlast_img read more
