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 ISOCELL HP1, its predecessor.



ISOCELL HP3

The first-generation 200MP camera is smaller than the ISOCELL HP3. Each of the 200 million pixels is now 0.56 micrometers (m) instead of the previous 0.64 m. It would have the tiniest pixels ever used in a phone. The optical size of each pixel is 1/1.4 inch, which is 14% smaller than the original.

The original lens could capture images with a resolution of 16,384 x 12,288 and 200 million pixels. It's unclear how that functions with the new camera, but it might use 2x2 or 4x4 pixel binning. It combines pixels and performs well in low-light conditions because more light is absorbed.

Samsung does claim that the ISOCELL HP3 can record videos in 8K resolution and at a frame rate of 30. 4K videos can even reach 120 frames per second. It utilizes Super QPD autofocus, which provides a more precise and rapid autofocus. Additionally, the color depth would be improved (14-bit color depth for more than four trillion colors). The camera will enter production this year, but the exact release date and phone models are unknown. They are also not very useful in many mobile phones, as the pixels are already reduced in size. Motorola introduced the same camera model in May.

There have been rumors that the new Galaxy S23 series will include this camera next year. The camera will most likely be exclusive to the Ultra, the most expensive device. In the coming months, we may hear more about this camera, particularly its applications.

What Does DCI-P3 Color Mean?

 

Digital Cinema Initiatives - Protocol 3 is known as DCI-P3. 

It is a color scheme created by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) to standardize the colors used in the film and television industries. 

A version of the DCI-P3 color space known as DCI-P3-D65 is also used by high-end PC monitors, TVs, and smartphone displays; however, you'll typically see this written as DCI-P3.

When purchasing a PC monitor, TV, or other device, the vendor may state that the item offers a particular proportion of DCI-P3 or P3 color space. The monitor can reproduce as much of the DCI-P3 space as shown here, though it needs to be tested to determine whether it does so accurately.

True DCI-P3 is aimed at what you see in theaters because this is a DCI standard. In home products, you'll typically find DCI-P3-D65, but, once more, it's almost always listed as DCI-P3, leaving out the D65 part. The difference between true DCI-P3 and DCI-P3-D65 is in the white. Due to its preference for projection systems, true DCI-P3 has a greener white.

As most 4K and even 8K monitors typically include the color wheel over the marginally outmoded sRGB color spectrum, DCI-P3 is particularly well suited for contemporary ultra-HD visuals.

DCI-P3 is undoubtedly preferable to sRGB if you want to fully enjoy HDR, and the more DCI-P3 coverage there is, the better. You can then take advantage of the additional colors that HDR content can have.


What is Xiaomi’s Loop LiquidCool technology?

 Every year, the power of smartphone chipsets increases, but they also get hotter due to the development of silicon chips. 

Screen Grab


Vapour chambers, also known as heat pipes, are a common part of the cooling stack as a result of the growing importance of cooling solutions.

The Xiaomi-developed Loop LiquidCool technology improves conventional heat pipes in two ways, doubling cooling efficiency.



What is the mechanism? (look at the chart above). The Evaporator segment, which is heated by the chipset, causes liquid to evaporate. The hot gas that results travels down a pipe to the Condenser, where it is cooled (for instance, by using the metal frame as a heat sink) and condensed back into liquid. The cycle is then restarted by sending this liquid to the Refill chamber, which feeds the Evaporator.

This is similar to what happens in a typical heat pipe, but there are important differences, as was already mentioned. First, the hot gas and cold liquid are maintained distinct. In heat pipes, the contact between the wick that carries the liquid and the chamber that the gas passes through limits the efficiency of the device.

The use of Tesla valves to guarantee proper circulation is the second significant change. These valves, which are easily identified by the string of teardrop shapes, were created by that Tesla inventor and do not use any moving parts to ensure that liquid flows much more easily in one direction than the other.

Despite the performance boost, the Motorola Razr 3 costs nearly 500 euros less

 The Motorola Razr 3 details that have surfaced in the last few hours are once again the work of OnLeaks. The well-known source appears to be closely observing Motorola's next leaflet's approach to the market, and had already shown it on Twitter in May. The information that has been released thus far pertains to the European price and the colors that will be available at launch, which appears to be a single hue.

Screen Grab: 


Quartz Black is the color chosen by Motorola for the Razr 3's release. 

Razr 5G is priced at €1,599, a price that many at launch, including ourselves, deemed excessive and which Razr 3 should bring closer to "human" levels. 

There is talk of a European price list beginning at € 1,149, € 450 less, which would make it much more appealing to customers and enthusiasts, even in comparison to a "true" premium basic scaffolding.


For Razr 5G and its predecessor, Qualcomm's mid-range processors were utilized: the Snapdragon 765G for Razr 5G and the 710 for Razr 4G. 

Now, however, the register would shift: Motorola would assign "direction" to the latest addition to Qualcomm's premium lineup, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. However, Razr 3 will differ in a number of other ways from the product that it will replace. Aesthetically, the changes will be apparent, with the elimination of the "chin" under the external screen in favor of a more conventional design, which will reportedly allow for an increase in the diagonal size of the service display from 2.7 to 3 inches.

Additionally, the internal display is anticipated to increase from 6.2 to 6.7 inches. This means that Razr 3 will be larger and will be able to accommodate a larger battery, which is necessary to keep up with the greater consumption of a very high-end chip such as the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, which with its 3.2 GHz maximum frequency will certainly be hungrier than the Snapdragon 765G of its predecessor, to which the 2,800 mAh battery was already strained. Memory expansion is also anticipated, from the current 8 + 256 GB to 12 + 512 GB in the Razr 3 2022.

Motorola is expected to make the device official in China in July, at which point we will likely see it. Later it should also arrive in Europe .

EU, the same standard charger will be used for smart devices



By the end of 2024, USB, Type C chargers have been made mandatory for charging all smart devices in EU member states. On the other hand, the American tech company Apple has opposed the law by declaring it unnecessary.

The European Union has decided that the same standard charger will be used for smartphones and tablets in all member countries. It was first proposed a decade ago, but member states have recently agreed on a draft law. After the implementation of this law, all users using smartphones and tablets in European countries will be able to charge their devices with USB, Type C charger.

Andrei Kvachiev, a member of the European Parliament from Bulgaria, has been part of negotiations between member states on drafting the law. He says the new law will make the lives of European consumers easier and will also save the environment from electronic waste weighing about 11,000 tonnes a year.

However, the EU's move is a major blow to Apple, the world's largest smartphone and tablet maker. Apple also opposed a volunteer campaign launched in 2009 aimed at reducing the number of chargers. Apple uses Lightning Charger for most of its mobile devices and has declared the new European law unnecessary.

This is the first agreement of its kind to be reached between EU member states, while smartphone companies have failed to find a common solution on their own.

Sony 'Xperia 1 IV' unveiled

.



The phone is immediately available for purchase on the internet. Company photo

Sony has unveiled  'Xperia 1 IV,' which features a strong optical zoom camera for the first time.

The Xperia 1 IV was initially only available for purchase online, but from next month, customers will be able to purchase it in their native countries.

The Xperia 1 IV is part of Sony's Xperia 10 series, which has been acclaimed as the company's best phone ever and boasts the company's most capable camera.

The Xperia 1 IV includes three rear cameras, all of which are 12 megapixels, but the technology and sensors utilised in them have been upgraded to be highly powerful.

One of the three cameras has optical zoom technology, which allows it to record images from a near distance.

The optical zoom camera allows users to zoom in on an image from 85 to 125 millimetres, resulting in an image that looks like it was taken from less than one foot away.



According to the business, advanced optical zoom technology has been upgraded, which does not influence the camera's results, and a digital zoom option has also been added to the camera for video.

The front-facing camera on the Xperia One Four has 8 megapixels, and all of the phone's cameras are capable of recording video.

The business claims that current technology has improved the display light of the 'Xperia One Four,' and that the phone has also been made powerful enough to endure dust and water.

The phone boasts a 6.5-inch screen, a Snapdragon 8 Generation 1 engine, and storage that can be expanded from 256 to 512 GB thanks to the phone's 12 GB RAM.
The phone includes a 5000 mAh battery, fingerprint sensor, good headphone port, and amazing speakers, and it can be charged up to 50% in 30 minutes, according to the manufacturer.

Surprisingly, the corporation does not include chargers, headphones, or other accessories.

The phone costs US $1,600, which means Pakistani fans will have to pay more than Rs 300,000 for it.

The usage of a cell phone does not raise the chance of developing a brain tumour



The use of mobile phones does not increase the incidence of brain cancers, according to a big long-term study. The study in the United Kingdom began in 1996.

An analysis of the "UK Million Women Study," which has been conducted in the United Kingdom for more than 20 years, found no evidence of an elevated risk of tumours associated with typical mobile phone use. This was published in the "Journal of the National Cancer Institute" by a team lead by Joachim Schüz from the International Cancer Research Agency (IARC) in Lyon.

Hundreds of thousands of women answered questions regarding their cell phone use in the survey, which began in 1996 and was repeated in 2001 and 2011. Nearly 3,300 of the nearly 800,000 women who answered the first questionnaire went on to acquire a brain tumour. It didn't matter how long the ladies had had a cell phone or how frequently they used it.
With newer cell phones, there is less radiation.

Questions about potential health dangers arose years ago because mobile phones, unlike other electronic gadgets, are held near to the head. According to the German Society for Neurology, radiation is insufficient to harm the genetic material in cell nuclei and cause cancer. For example, the phone's energy is insufficient to raise body warmth.

The study's authors note out that with each new generation of mobile phones, the amount of radiation has decreased dramatically. Even with extensive use, one is likely exposed to the same amount as with moderate use of the first two generations of mobile phones.

New accessibility features for smartphones for blinds and disabled people

 For many blind or deaf people, mobile phones are a lifeline. Using toasters, kettles, and other similar appliances, on the other hand, has become more difficult..

Photo by cottonbro:


Apple and Google are releasing new software features for smartphones, tablets, and computers to make devices and operating systems more accessible to people with disabilities. For example, on World Accessibility Day, Apple announced that it will bring live subtitles to the screens of its devices for the deaf and hard of hearing community.

It would make it easier for users to follow audio content while on the phone, in a video conference or social media app, streaming media content, or chatting with someone nearby. Live subtitles will initially only be offered in English. Last fall, Google introduced a similar feature for its Pixel smartphones.

Improvements are planned for Android.

More improvements to the Android mobile system were announced last week at the Google I/O developer conference, lowering barriers for disabled people. A new version of the Lookout app was unveiled, allowing blind or partially sighted people to have photo content described to them. Lookout 3.0 focuses on photos from the news and social networks. Texts visible in the image can also be read out by the app. The "Live Transcribe" app, which converts spoken language into writing and recognizes common sounds like a doorbell, has also been greatly enhanced.

The "Door Detection" feature was also introduced by Apple. "This makes it easier for blind and visually impaired people to navigate the final few meters to their destination," said Sarah Herrlinger, the group's global accessibility manager. For example, the app can tell you whether a door is open or closed, what signs or notices are nearby, and whether you need to push, pull, or press a button to open it. The iPhone's magnifying glass app can be used to access the "door recognition."

Ovens, toasters, kettles harder to use

Experts also pointed out that some everyday household appliances, such as ovens, toasters, washing machines, and even kettles, are becoming increasingly difficult to use for the disabled on "World Accessibility Day." Manufacturers might, for example, replace traditional switches or knobs on devices with touch screens that aren't intended to be barrier-free.

According to Artur Ortega, software architect at British healthcare provider Babylon Health, such devices can be operated by the disabled in some cases if there is an associated smartphone app that can read out the temperature or the set program for ovens, for example. "However, in order to do so, the apps must be designed to be barrier-free." In contrast to manufacturers in the United States, where accessibility is often mandated by law, German manufacturers, in particular, have a long way to go.

Realme GT Neo 3 in China in Naruto Edition

The Realme GT Neo 3 Naruto edition has just been released in China, and it appears to be quite impressive.

The smartphone's specifications are identical to those of the Vanilla Realme GT Neo 3 that was released a month ago, but its design is novel and intriguing.




The phone was created in collaboration with Naruto, a popular anime and manga series. In short, it is aimed at Naruto fans.

Masashi Kishimoto is the author and illustrator of the Naruto manga series in Japan. It tells the story of Naruto Uzumaki, a young ninja who wants to be respected by his peers and become the Hokage, the leader of his village. 

The smartphone's metal back is adorned with a "micro 3D" texture that provides a 3D effect to the naked eye, evoking Naruto's traditional headband.

The back of the limited edition is made to look like the main character's outfit in the Naruto Shippuden anime series. Orange is the primary color, which is combined with matte black and metallic gray. 

For its Naruto-themed special edition, Realme wanted to pay close attention to every detail. Therefore, the camera group, which is slightly elevated from the back, is placed on a silver plate bearing the Realme and Naruto logos. The Realme UI can also be customized with specific themes and backgrounds, as well as a replica of the main character, who uses the "Rasengan" and the five fundamental elements to initiate the 150-watt UltraDart super fast charging.

The special edition of the Realme GT 3 Neo is inspired by the Naruto scroll, includes a pin in the shape of the Hidden Leaf village logo, and includes special accessories such as a themed case and a 10,000 mAh, 33 W Realme 3 Pro power bank with fast charging.

As anticipated at the outset, the Realme GT Neo 3 Naruto Edition will only be available for pre-order in China in the variant with 12 + 256 GB of memory at a price of 2,799 yuan (the same as the equivalent standard variant), which is equivalent to approximately 390 euros at the current exchange rate. When fully operational, the price will equal 430 euros.

Qualcomm has unveiled the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 processors.

 Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 and Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 are two new mobile platforms that aim to further raise the bar at the premium end of the market, as Qualcomm continues to accelerate. The San Diego house typically releases an improved and slightly revised version of its best SoCs in the middle of the year, and it did so again in this round.



In contrast, Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 aims to provide excellent features even at the medium-high end of the market; in other words, the "old" generation SD7xx, which has been renamed and ostensibly boosted in performance. Let's examine them in depth, as both will hit the market as early as this quarter's conclusion, which means they will soon be available to buyers alongside unpublished new arrivals.

With so much power, the focus inevitably shifts to gaming, to the point where we speak of the integrated Snapdragon Elite Gaming suite of features. The GPU is the same Adreno 730 as the "original" model, but with a few additional tricks that boost performance by approximately 10% while reducing power consumption by 30%. Identical percentage gains are noted for the CPU, despite its slightly higher operating frequency (3.2 GHz versus 3.0 GHz for the base model).

This could be one of the most intriguing aspects of the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 compared to its predecessor, as a reduction of one-third in power consumption is not a joke. For the most part, the SoC has remained virtually unchanged; in other words, the "monster" of power that enables 8K HDR video capture, simultaneous 64MP image capture (thanks to three 18-bit ISPs), and maximum mobile connectivity remains. This is made possible by the already-familiar Snapdragon X65 modem (5G, SA, and NSA) and Fastconnect 6900 (WiFi 6 and 6E). 

Many companies, including Asus (Rog), Black Shark, Honor, iQOO, Lenovo, Motorola, Nubia, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, RedMagic, Redmi, Vivo, Xiaomi, and ZTE, will use it beginning in the third quarter of 2022.


TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

  • 4nm production process
  • CPU: Kryo up to 3.2 GHz with 64-bit Arm Cortex-X2
  • GPU: Adreno 730, HDR gaming, Vulkan 1.1 API
  • Modem: Snapdragon X65 5G, 5G mmWave and sub-6 GHz, SA and NSA, downloads up to 10 Gbps
  • WiFi: 6E and 6 (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, 6 GHz) with Qualcomm FastConnect 6900
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth 5.3 and USB 3.1
  • Camera:  Triple 18-bit ISP, 8K HDR Video at 30fps, 4K at 120fps, HDR10 +, HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision
  • Audio: Qualcomm Aqstic codec (WCD9385)
  • Charging: Quick Charge 5
  • Memory: LP-DDR5 support up to 16GB at 3200MHz

New mid-range smartphone charges in 27 minutes.

 OnePlus, a Chinese manufacturer, has introduced two smartphones with the Nord 2T 5G and CE 2 Lite 5G. Another new product is the Dolby Atmos-enabled Nord Buds earphones.



The Chinese hardware manufacturer OnePlus has introduced two new mid-range smartphones: the Nord 2T 5G  and Nord CE 2 Lite 5G. Thus, the company continues its Nord series. The OnePlus Nord 2T 5G is the successor to the OnePlus Nord 2 and is intended to bridge the gap until the release of the Nord 3.

Similar to its predecessor, the Nord 2, the OnePlus Nord 2T 5G features a 6.4-inch Amoled screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate. Instead of the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset, the new smartphone utilizes the 1300 chipset. The processor can utilize up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.


Zero to one hundred in 27 minutes

The camera's equipment is identical to that of its predecessor. The primary camera has a resolution of 50 megapixels, the ultra-wide-angle camera retains 8 megapixels, and the front sensor of the Nord 2T 5G has a resolution of 32 megapixels.

The main camera of the Nord 2T is equipped with a large Sony IMX766 sensor with optical image stabilisation (OIS), which absorbs 56 percent more light3 for crisp, vibrant images even in low light.

When the night falls, activate Nightscape mode and silky-smooth OIS for brighter, clearer, and more vibrant low-light images. This feature is enhanced for the Nord 2T by the AI wizardry of the Dimensity 1300 chipset.

Source: Oneplus

Night photography performance is up to 90 percent better than the Snapdragon 870.

The battery has a capacity of 4,500 mAh and can be charged from 0% to 100% in 27 minutes with the 80 W Supervooc fast charging feature. The charging process is monitored by nine temperature sensors to prevent the smartphone from overheating.

Samsung Galaxy A53 :the iconic smartphone brand keeps improving.


Samsung hopes to build on the success of previous mid-range smartphones with the Galaxy A53.

The Galaxy A50, A51, and A52 have been very successful and popular.
I'll tell you what you can anticipate from the Galaxy A53.

The Samsung Galaxy A53 has impressed me with vivid display, long battery life, solid software, and long update policy. Anyone who purchases this smartphone will get the update for next. These will enable you to use the smartphone without any limitations.

Currently, there are two issues that will hopefully be fixed over time. The performance isn't quite where it should be. Furthermore, the 449 euro price is excessive

Design

Only little "improvements" have been made in comparison to its predecessor. It's still a plastic-based smartphone. One could have expected a little more for the rather premium price. It was also possible that the frame was made of metal.

In general, I think the new frame, which now stops precisely at the rear, is a great upgrade. This makes holding the Galaxy A53 much more enjoyable. Unlike its predecessors, the back can no longer be damaged as easily, giving it a higher-quality feel. 

The Samsung Galaxy A53 is dust and water resistant thanks to its IP67 certification.

The display is noticeably brighter.

The 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display, which can reach 800 nits of brightness, drew my attention immediately. Outside, you could read the predecessor's display, but thanks to the Galaxy A53's greater brightness, it's even simpler. Even if the sun shines directly on the display, everything is visible:



The Samsung Galaxy A53 now has a 120Hz refresh rate as standard. This should ensure that the display runs smoothly. 

The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the screen. This is significantly too deep, as is typical of optical fingerprint sensors in screens. This makes it unnecessarily complex to handle. The finger recognition is satisfactory. A small tip: save the fingers twice, and it will work even better. The fingerprints should be saved again after applying a protective coating.

On the Samsung Galaxy A53, you won't find a 3.5 mm jack.

Samsung has installed two speakers, much like the predecessor. The sound quality is excellent. There isn't much bass, but that's to be expected from a smartphone. The 3.5mm jack has been removed from the device. Only USB-C or Bluetooth can be used to connect headphones. Speaking of doing without, there is no power adapter included in the box, no protective film on the display, and you must choose whether to use two SIM cards or one SIM card and a microSD card.


Performance must improve.

In the test, the Samsung Galaxy A53 did not perform as well as expected. In the future, a software update should resolve the issue. 

I'm not sure what's happening, but the Samsung Galaxy A53 isn't running as smoothly as it used to. Despite the fact that you have a powerful processor, plenty of RAM, and a 120 Hz display, tiny delays are the norm.

 Otherwise, the Galaxy A53 comes with standard Samsung software. It comes with Android 12 and One UI 4.1 preloaded. This gives you a wide range of functionality and customization choices, allowing you to tailor your phone to your own requirements. 

Unrivaled update assurance
You won't have to worry for five years if you get a Samsung smartphone like the Galaxy A53. As long as Samsung continues to give updates. In addition, there will be four additional Android versions. As a result, Android 13, 14, 15, and 16 are available. Getting anything like that in the middle of the price range is a huge plus. Smartphones are being used for longer and longer periods of time because they are just more reliable. Samsung contributes to the cell phone's ability to be utilised for as long as feasible without posing any security threats due to obsolete software.

A cutting-edge camera

In favourable lighting situations, the Samsung Galaxy A53, like its predecessor, shoots decent images.

 A 64-megapixel primary camera with optical image stabilisation is included. This results in some extremely nice photographs. 

In low-light situations, you'll need to keep your smartphone steady for an extended period of time to get a good shot. Because the zoom only works digitally, it should not be utilised excessively. The image quality is still acceptable at four times. Even in good light, a 10x magnification produces a muck rather than a clear image. A true telephoto lens isn't present.




A 12 MP super wide angle lens is also included. Overall, the photos were also rather good. The edges are occasionally very fuzzy. I couldn't figure out why this was happening. If you don't double-check your photos after they've been taken, you'll be annoyed later if there are image errors. The third and fourth sensors are a depth and macro camera with a resolution of 5 MP each. They're basically superfluous. It would have been ideal to have integrated a telephoto lens.


The video quality is likewise okay. Videos can be recorded in 4K at 30 frames per second. However, I would recommend shooting in Full HD at 60 frames per second, as the content will appear more realistic - especially when photographing moving objects. The image stabilisation is excellent, and you can zoom in and out with ease while filming.

The battery life is adequate, but it might be better.

Because the Galaxy A53 has a larger 5,000 mAh battery, I was expecting the battery life to be substantially better than the predecessor. But I didn't pay attention to it. The battery life is adequate, but it might be better. 

 With the 120Hz display active and normal use of the phone, I received almost two days of battery life. I breezed through the day with heavy use. You can go for more than two days if you use your phone sparingly. The duration of the exhibition was seven to eight hours. With 60 Hz, you could probably accomplish more.

To be honest, I was hoping for a little more. When the Galaxy A53 is turned off, it drains a lot of energy. You will lose an exceptional amount of battery if you do nothing with it. That isn't particularly dramatic, and you don't notice it when you use the phone, but I also left it for two days and found that 40% of the battery was vanished. It's very possible that a software update will fix the issue.

Up to 25 watts of power can be used to charge the smartphone. However, you must have or purchase a power supply unit. In roughly 1.5 hours, the battery is fully charged again. That's OK. Wireless charging is not possible for the smartphone.

The first universal processor in the world. Tachyum Prodigy combines CPU, GPU, and TPU functions for astounding performance.

The first universal processor in the world. Tachyum Prodigy combines CPU, GPU, and TPU functions for astounding performance.




Although universal processors that combine the operations of a graphics processor and a central processor have been around for a long time, Tachyum's Prodigy chip stands apart due to a special feature. 

This "world's first universal processor" is a homogenous architecture that incorporates the CPU, GPU, and TPU (Tensor Processing Unit). According to the company, their work has resulted in significant productivity benefits at a fraction of the cost of rival items.

The first universal processor in the world. Tachyum Prodigy combines CPU, GPU, and TPU functions for astounding performance.

When you can put everything in the hands of Tachyum Prodigy, why needs a distinction between CPUs and GPUs?
The Prodigy chip for supercomputers in the cloud, artificial intelligence, and HPC sectors, according to a press release, is outperforming the competition on all fronts. In AI training and inference tasks, it is touted to give 4 times the performance of the fastest Xeon, 3 times the performance of the NVIDIA H100, and 6 times the performance of the fastest Xeon. It also impresses with its energy efficiency, achieving up to a tenfold increase in efficiency with the same amount of electricity.

What are the sources of these opportunities? The specification makes it clear right away, because Prodigy in its most advanced form, designed for multi-processor platforms and 4- and 2-slot machines, has to offer:

16 DDR5 memory controllers 128 high-performance unified 64-bit cores working at up to 5.7 GHz
PCIe 5.0 lanes: 64

Unlike other hardware, Prodigy is built from the ground up to handle matrix and vector computing. Companies will be able to test the effectiveness of such a combination later this year using the system's vector and matrix functions, which support a variety of data types (FP64, FP32, TF32, BF16, Int8, FP8, and TAI). Tachyum expects to ship samples (eight various variants of Prodigy) in the coming months, with serial manufacturing beginning in the first half of 2023.

Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) has issued a fresh alert for Android users.

 Users of Android 10, Android 11, Android 12, and Android 12L are subject to a high severity warning. According to the advisory, the operating system has various vulnerabilities that can be exploited to collect sensitive information, gain elevated privileges, and cause denial of service on the targeted system.



These vulnerabilities exist in the Android OS due to defects in Framework, System, Media Provider, Kernel components, MediaTek components, Qualcomm components, Qualcomm closed source components, and System.

Google has already acknowledged the Android OS's flaws and released a security patch earlier this month. All of these concerns are addressed by security patch versions 2022-05-01 or later, according to the most current Android Security Bulletin.

The most serious of these flaws, according to the business, is a significant security vulnerability in the Framework component that might lead to local escalation of power requiring User execution privileges. The severity rating is based on the impact that exploiting the vulnerability could have on an affected device, provided the platform and service mitigations are disabled for development reasons or if the vulnerability is successfully exploited.


Samsung Galaxy S22 is a small, light, but also efficient and solidly made phone.

Samsung Galaxy S22 is a small, light, but also efficient and solidly made phone.  One of my colleagues bought it few days ago. This gave me a chance to explore and see the design and performance of the Galaxy S22. 


This elegant smartphone comes with a waterproof casing, a very good AMOLED screen and a functional camera

The Samsung Exynos 2200 chipset used in the device is an efficient and technically advanced design. It has new Xclipse GPU which is based on AMD RDNA2 architecture because this it delivers realistic and immerse visuals when you play mobile games.  The good thing about this GPU is that comes with variable rate shading technology. This technology helps in optimizing the GPU workload. 

I think it is a powerful octa-core CPU with tri-cluster architecture that gives the Galaxy S22 powerful computing power. This power will enable you play your games do multitasking and faster rendering of game videos. 

The Galaxy S22 received an even smaller battery than the older Galaxy S21 5G. 3700 mAh is not the capacity that allows him to become a multimedia long-distance runner;

The new Galaxy S22 is compact, but with a back panel made of frosted Gorilla Glass Victus + glass, with a much wider, more angular, metal frame and a similar-looking, slightly more powerful metal section of the main camera than in its predecessor.

One thing is certain - Galaxy S22 is a neat, light and small phone by current standards, with a solid, elegant and waterproof casing ( IP68 certified ).

The Galaxy S22 model is available in Phantom white, Phantom black, Pink Gold and green colors. 

Samsung's flagship smartphones will never disappoint you in the screen. This time it is a flat, 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel, 120 Hz , with FHD + class resolution (1080 x 2340 pixels), and the image displayed on it turns out to be attractive to the eye and well readable outside. 

The breathtaking 120Hz Infinity-O Display is made of Dynamic AMOLED 2X with Vision Booster technology for excellent outdoor visibility in both strong daylight and low light.

The display surface is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus + . The slim, symmetrical screen frames also deserve stylistic praise. It is clear that Samsung engineers tried to refine every, even the smallest detail, maybe ... except for the still present front camera hole. Under the surface of the display, there is an ultrasonic fingerprint reader that is obligatory for the Galaxy S series .

The buttons controlling the operation of the smartphone (switch and volume control) can be found on the right side of the frame. Both are well felt under the finger. The switch is located at a very comfortable height - the finger literally hits it on its own.

In the photo above you can see the indentation between the bezel and the camera section. It can therefore be assumed that this time we are no longer dealing with an aluminum monolith (camera frame and section), as in the Galaxy S21, but with an additional housing element. Such a solution is certainly technologically easier, and therefore also cheaper. Visually, however, it still defends well.

At the top of the Galaxy S22 frame, the manufacturer only placed an additional microphone hole. All the other elements have gone to the bottom of the frame. We will find there: the main speaker (the second pair from the stereo set plays sound through the earpiece speaker slot), a USB 3.2 type C socket (the smartphone still supports the wired DeX mode ) and a SIM card tray that houses two Nano SIM modules (we can also use a virtual eSIM card) .

The stereo audio system used is a classic design with a full-range lower and upper transducer reproducing mainly the treble and the middle of the acoustic band through the handset loudspeaker slot.


The sound is loud, and the stereo effects are quite noticeable (although you can also notice a slight dominance of the lower speaker). In games and when watching movies, there is no problem, but the music sounds from the Galaxy S22 speakers at times a bit too harsh and aggressive

Samsung does not spoil us once again with standard smartphone equipment. In the slim box we only find a card drawer ejector and a USB cable. We have to organize a wall charger and all other accessories (case, headphones) on our own.

Samsung Galaxy S22 - technical specification, performance, battery

In the European Galaxy S22 series, the heart of the smartphone is the 4-nanometer Samsung Exynos 2200 chipset . Inside there is an octa-core processor (1x Cortex-X2 3 GHz + 3x Cortex-A710 2.7 GHz + 4x Cortex-A510 1.7 GHz) and the proprietary Xclipse 920 graphics chip. They are supported by 8 GB of RAM (LPDDR5) and depending on from edition 128 GB or 256 GB of memory for data (UFS 3.1). The smartphone also includes: a 5G modem, a fast Wi-Fi 6 card, a modern Bluetooth 5.2 module and an NFC module.

The smartphone works under the control of Android 12 , the functionality of which is complemented by the company 's One UI in version 4.1 . I must admit that Samsung is probably the manufacturer that most frequently provides software updates for its devices. During the test, the smartphone reported the will to install them three times and had the current level of security patches (April 2022). This is how the main screens of the One UI 4.1 interface look like.

In the table below you will find the detailed specification of the Galaxy S22 and obligatorily, for easy comparison of the parameters of the older Galaxy S21. Just in case, I also put in it, with a slightly larger screen (6.4 inches), the sister Galaxy S21 FE, which some people may consider a good price alternative to the Galaxy S22.

In everyday use, the Galaxy S22 efficiently responds to all commands, smoothly starts and switches between applications, and has no problems with handling more demanding games
