INFINIX ZERO 5G - WE ARE COMPLETING THE SPECIFICATION

 On Friday , we informed about an interesting-looking new Infinix , and today we can quote almost the entire, though unofficial, specification of the upcoming smartphone. Get to know Infinix Zero 5G closer !



The Infinix Zero 5G model can be loud for at least two reasons. First of all - the device will receive quite an original styling. Secondly - for this manufacturer, the Infinix Zero 5G will be quite an advanced device. According to MySmartPrice reports , Infinix Zero 5G is to receive a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with Full HD + resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate.

The heart of the phone will be the MediaTek Dimensity 900 processor, which will be accompanied by at least 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory. The power supply is to be provided by a 5000 mAh battery with 33 W fast charging, and as the system we will see Android 11 with the company's Infinix XOS overlay. The unusual frame of the rear camera is to hide the 48-megapixel main matrix and additional modules with a wide-angle lens and tele. The premiere of the device is coming soon, but the equipment is unlikely to cross the borders of India ...


HUAWEI NOVA Y9A - THE RETURN OF THE RETRACTABLE CAMERA?

 Huawei Nova Y9a is quite a surprising novelty. The smartphone appeared in South Africa , its specification is a patchwork of several other models, and the whole thing is topped with a retractable selfie camera.



The selfie camera hidden in the booms extending from the housing was fashionable 2-3 years ago. It was quite an interesting solution, but not without its drawbacks. The cameras hidden in the casing were quite expensive to produce and prone to damage. In fact - they have been replaced by screen holes - and the Huawei Nova Y9a is probably one of the last models equipped with this element. Thanks to the retractable camera (16 Mpx, f / 2.2), the Huawei Nova Y9a boasts an almost frameless, full 6.63-inch TFT screen with Full HD + resolution.

he back of the smartphone is decorated with a round camera frame, hiding four lenses (f / 1.8 and 3x f / 2.4) and matrices of 64, 8 and two 2 Mpx each. The purpose of the additional modules is obvious: 120-degree wide-angle photos, macro and background blurring. The heart of the smartphone is the MediaTek Helio G80 processor, supported by 8 + 128 GB memory. The internal memory can be expanded with a microSD card. The smartphone will be powered by a battery with a capacity of 4300 mAh, which will be reduced to 4200 mAh in the markets of the Middle East, Africa and selected Asian countries, where - apparently - the model in question is also to come. The battery will be charged with a power of 40 W. As a system - Android 11 with the EMUI 10.1 interface - but of course without Google.

IPHONE AS A PAYMENT TERMINAL?

 Apple has an idea for a great solution for small entrepreneurs. The company wants the iPhone to act as a payment terminal.



As reported by Reuters , in the next few months, Apple plans to introduce a new feature to the iPhone: the possibility of using a smartphone as a payment terminal. From the technical side - it only requires appropriate software - after all, Apple smartphones have NFC modules, and to connect to the banking system - just like in classic terminals - a cellular network is used. This change can therefore be implemented through a software update.

It is not yet known what payment systems the Apple solution would support - apart from the company's Apple Pay. For this option to be really useful - it should be as universal as possible.

Of course, the described solution is nothing new. Android smartphones have long supported the function of accepting contactless payments, in conjunction with the appropriate application . Apple has shown many times, however, that although sometimes it introduces some novelties with a delay, they work better than on a competing platform. Will it be the same this time?


Against Apple and Google: India declares war on Android and iOS

 State funds are therefore to be used to support start-ups and university projects in the implementation and research of the new operating system. According to the project plan, 300 billion US dollars are to be turned over by the electronics industry by 2026 – currently sales are 75 billion dollars.





The government sees the new operating system as a door opener to playing at the top of the international electronics market. The Indian government up to the prime minister is also hoping for more foreign investment. “For the first time, investors and public markets are funding and investing in the technology sector,” said the minister.


CHINA IS ALREADY PLANNING ITS OWN OPERATING SYSTEM FOR HUAWEI

The Indian operating system is not the first attempt to break the market power of Silicon Valley. Many mobile phone users still remember the failed Blackberry and Windows Phone operating systems.


In view of diplomatic tensions, Chinese mobile phone manufacturers such as Huawei and Xiaomi also want to become independent of American operating systems. Huawei already uses a Linux-based Android adaptation and bans Google apps on its devices.

THE SAMSUNG GALAXY TAB S8 SERIES HAS APPEARED ON AMAZON

There was probably a nervous atmosphere at Amazon and Samsung. The Italian branch of the e-commerce giant has released product sheets for all three Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 series tablets - complete with photos and specifications.



Maybe it's a deliberate, controlled leak, maybe someone's mistake - in any case, information about the new Samsung tablets has already disappeared from the Italian Amazon website, which is a clue that it probably wasn't supposed to be there today ... In fact, we didn't learn anything new , but we gained confidence in the appearance and specifications of the new models.

All three new tablets will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processors with Adreno 730 graphics and Android 12 operating system with Samsung One UI 4.1 interface. They will also offer S-Pen stylus support as well as optional 5G modems. The basic model, the Galaxy Tab S8 will have an 11-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 px, two single cameras (rear 13 Mpx) and a battery with a capacity of 8000 mAh. The dimensions of the device will be 253.8 x 165.3 x 6.3 mm, and the weight - 507 g. Galaxy Tab S8 + will receive a screen with a resolution of 2800 x 1752 and a diagonal of 12.4 inches, as well as a battery with a capacity of 10090 mAh. For this variant, the dimensions and weight will be 285 x 185 x 5.7 mm and 572 g respectively. Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8 Plus will be offered in black, silver or pink.

The top model of the series, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra, will be a giant, with a 14.6-inch screen with a resolution of 2960 x 1848 px, a battery with a capacity of 11200 mAh and a double front camera. The dimensions of this model will be 326.4 x 208.6 x 5.5 mm, and the weight - 728 g. This model will be offered only in black. In the case of Ultra, another French Amazon subsidiary also disclosed prices. Unfortunately, they are unreliable, because they are strangely non-round ... A model with 128 GB memory and a 5G modem would cost EUR 1,308.10, and without a modem - EUR 1,159.32. So I suggest not to be attached to prices for now ...


VIVO Y75 5G ON ITS WAY

 Vivo is preparing a successor to the Vivo Y75 five years ago. What equipment will the upcoming Vivo Y75 5G receive?



As reported by 91mobiles , Vivo Y75 5G will be equipped with a 6.59-inch display and Full HD + resolution. The screen will probably have a typical refresh rate of 60 Hz, and will also be made in LCD technology, as indicated by the classic fingerprint reader visible on the side of the housing. The screen has a hole for a 16-megapixel selfie camera.

The heart of Vivo Y75 5G will be a MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor with two ARM Cortex-A76 cores clocked up to 2.2 GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 with a 2 GHz clock. This system will be supported by 8 GB of RAM, which can be virtually expanded by 4 GB, "borrowing" for this purpose a fragment of 128 GB internal memory. On the back of the new Vivo housing there will be a triple camera, with a main 50 megapixel matrix and two 2-megapixel for macro and blurring backgrounds as space fillers in a rectangular frame. Everything will be managed by the Android 12 operating system with Funtouch OS 12 interface, and power supply will be provided by 5000 mAh battery with 18-watt charging system. There will be two color versions to choose from. The premiere will take place in January.

OnePlus Nord 2T: New mid-range cell phone gets features from the OnePlus 10 Pro

OnePlus recently presented its new high-end smartphone in China, which should also find its way to Germany in the foreseeable future. With the OnePlus Nord 2T, however, a mid-range smartphone has already been announced that directly takes over one of the best functions of the OnePlus 10 Pro.

OnePlus Nord 2T can be charged quickly with 80 watts
OnePlus smartphones are known for being able to charge quickly. The Chinese company recognized the trend early on and developed its own technologies so that Android smartphones can be charged quickly and safely. The OnePlus 10 Pro introduced the 80-watt fast charging function via cable . However, this will not be exclusive to the new top smartphone for long. The OnePlus Nord 2T will also adopt them.

Basically, the OnePlus Nord 2T will be more of a minor upgrade compared to the OnePlus Nord 2. However, there will still be improvements, including the OnePlus 10 Pro’s 80-watt fast charging function. With this, the 4,500 mAh battery will be fully charged in no time. The power supply should even be included in the scope of delivery. Otherwise there should be a more up-to-date processor with the MediaTek Dimensity 1300. So we can expect a little more performance.

Otherwise, it stays with the proven equipment with the 6.43-inch 90 Hz display. In our opinion, OnePlus should have upgraded to a 120 Hz display here. At an expected price of 400 euros, you would expect a little more. The camera and the other equipment should not do that much either. That’s why it’s a station wagon and not a completely new generation. It was only screwed in a few small places. The presentation is expected first in India in February. The predecessor is currently being sold very cheaply on Amazon.

Discovery of new causes that increase the risk of heart disease and diabetes in men

 

Middle-aged men with severe anxiety and depression are at increased risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes in the coming years.

This was revealed in a new medical study conducted in the United States.

Research from the Boston University School of Medicine found that anxiety in men is linked to a biological process that increases the risk of heart disease and metabolic diseases (diabetes, blood pressure, bloating, etc.).

According to research, this can happen in childhood or adolescence.

To find out, the researchers examined data from people involved in an aging study, a long-term study of the aging process in men.

The new study included 1,561 men who averaged 53 years in 1975, who did not have coronary heart disease or cancer at the time, and whose anxiety and mental health were also assessed.

People who suffer from mental anguish and anxiety often experience more intense fear, anxiety, sadness and anger, which also affects health, as it can lead to loss of control over daily activities, the researchers said. ۔

Their 2015 follow-up data also looked at factors that increased the risk of heart disease and metabolic diseases, such as blood pressure, cholesterol and blood fat levels, obesity, empty stomach, blood sugar levels and inflammation.

The results showed that people with anxiety and depression often had a higher risk of heart disease and metabolic disease.

In men, the risk increases between the ages of 30 and 80, the researchers said.

The findings were published in the medical journal of the American Heart Association

MOTOROLA MOTO TAB G70 OFFICIALLY PRESENTED

 Not in India, as we expected , but another Motorola tablet (after Moto Tab G20 ) - the Moto Tab G70 - debuted in Brazil.



Moto Tab G70 is definitely a more interesting design than the recently presented Moto Tab G20 . We already knew quite a lot about the Motorola Moto Tab G70 tablet , but it's time to provide the full specification (which is quite similar to the Lenovo Tab P11 Plus ) and look at the price list ...

The Motorola Moto Tab G70 has an 11-inch IPS display with 2K resolution and 400 nits brightness, HD Amazon Prime and Netflix certified. The heart of the tablet is the MediaTek Helio G90T processor, which is supported by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB internal memory. It is not known yet whether there will be other memory sets. The power supply is provided by a 7700 mAh battery with 20 W fast charging. The tablet also has four stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos, as well as Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS or a microSD card slot . The equipment also includes a 13-megapixel camera with autofocus and f / 2.2 aperture and an 8-megapixel selfie camera with constant focus and f / 2.0 aperture. Everything is closed in a metal housing with dimensions of 258.4 x 163 x 7.5 mm, offered in two colors.

The tablet weighs 490 g, and is also to be available in a version with an LTE modem . For now, however, the Brazilian branch of Motorola does not mention him.

IPHONE 14 PRO WILL BE LIKE A BUDGETARY WITH ANDROID?

 Forgive me for mocking the title, but I couldn't help it. There is a rumor that the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro will receive a 48 megapixel camera - the kind we meet in inexpensive Android smartphones ...



Of course, the megapixels themselves do not translate into the quality of the photo, and 48 Mpx in a cheap android will not have a chance to match the same resolution in the iPhone - but the change is noteworthy. Especially when we realize that the resolution of the cameras is an element that Apple changes extremely rarely. Take a look. We have seen such great jumps (not counting those in the first three generations of iPhones ) very rarely. With the iPhone 4 and 4S , we had a jump from 5 to 8 megapixels, and then, when switching from iPhone 6 to iPhone 6s , we jumped from 8 to 12 megapixels, which continues to this day.

Apple has reportedly decided to jump into higher resolution only now. The question - why, if it is not the number of megapixels that is responsible for the final effect of the photo? It is possible that Apple needs a higher resolution for filming in 8K, or for use in image processing and some additional effects. Finally, as in most cases, the pixels will probably work in the combining mode - and the full resolution of the matrix will be used "in the background", which may result in some extraordinary photographic possibilities. Something tells me that at a time when 200 Mpx matrices begin to appear in the Android world, Apple will only show how much can be squeezed out of 48 Mpx, which has actually been almost superseded from the world of smartphones with the Google system ...

ONEPLUS 10 PRO: THE GLOBAL VARIANT WILL BE DIFFERENT?

 OnePlus 10 Pro made its debut yesterday on the Chinese market , but of course it is also expected to be distributed globally. Apparently, however, it has a changed specification!



The fact that the global variant of OnePlus 10 Pro may differ from the Chinese one was suggested in an interview with Slashgear , the "manufacturer's representative" not mentioned by name and position. He said that " there may be slight changes to some specs depending on regional availability" and that " these will be revealed at the launch of the global version (of the smartphone)" .

Unfortunately, there are no hints as to what these modifications might be. In the first thought - we can talk about other variants of memory - but which ones? In China, there is a choice of 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of flash memory. I do not suspect that an additional change will arrive - at most the combinations of the listed capacities may change or disappear - so that the smartphone is sold in only one memory tier. We can look for further changes in the area of ​​cameras or battery charging power ... Or in a set that may be depleted of a charger. An advantage may be the appearance of a housing tightness certificate - but I would hope for changes "for the worse" than "for the better" ... In the case of prices - due to taxes - changes "for the worse" are almost certain, so let me,

The manufacturer announces the premiere of the global version of OnePlus 10 Pro in the spring - i.e. in March at the earliest. And if you would like to recall the specification of OnePlus 10 Pro , you can find it below:

iOS 16: revolutionary concept changes the way we call forever

 Have you ever thought about it: What could or should be changed in the basic concept of a telephone call in 2022? Hard to imagine that there is anything there. And yet, the following idea is so brilliant that Apple would have to be crazy not to want to include it in the upcoming iOS 16 for the iPhone.

 If you don’t know , you can actually still use a smartphone like the iPhone to make phone calls these days. Unfortunately, very few do, especially younger people who spurn contact in this way. Instead, there are text deserts or voice messages that you send to each other and then have to read through or listen to at length. A direct conversation seems to have fallen out of fashion.

Revolutionary idea for iOS 16: Subject line for phone calls – wow

So how could you make the telephone call itself more attractive again?
Dan Mall, CEO of SuperFriendly, has a genuinely brilliant idea that will end up changing the way we call forever (Source: Dan Mall via 9to5Mac ). 

The idea: Before someone calls, a subject is set and written down, similar to an email. The person called is shown this subject line directly on the iPhone display, even before accepting the call. On the one hand, he or she has the opportunity to set up a brief conversation, you also save yourself explanatory words at the beginning of the conversation and on the other hand, you can reject the call directly if you are not interested.

Well, this is how you deal with unwanted calls today:

This makes the phone call much more efficient and fears of taking the call are eliminated. But the idea goes even further. For example, as a user, you could make it mandatory to enter a subject. If this doesn’t happen, the call goes straight to the mailbox. A small downside: All of this was probably only possible between Apple devices, Android smartphones have to stay outside.

Also intended for the Apple Watch

Why not also for the Apple Watch? A language assistant like Siri would of course be helpful for this (Dan Mall via 9to5Mac).

However, the feature would not be limited to the iPhone alone, integration into the Apple Watch would be just as conceivable and sensible for Mall. This is paraphrased for the smartwatch as follows:

“For example, you could tell a voice assistant to call about a specific topic. And if you skip it, you might be prompted to do so. This type of interaction is less complicated than typing, and both outgoing and incoming calls provide and capture more information.”

We think: Wonderful! Hopefully Apple will get wind of it and consider something similar for the upcoming iOS 16 . The readers at 9to5Mac agree, by the way. To date, more than 70 percent of those who took part in a survey agreed with the following statement: “Yes, I would like to know what the subject of a call is before I answer it.” Only just under 20 percent are outspoken , the rest appear to be Generally no longer interested in telephone calls.

Samsung has unveiled a 200 megapixel camera of the second generation

 Samsung  hasn't even put its 200 megapixel first-generation camera in a phone yet. It is ISOCELL HP3, and it is very different from ISO...
