The Announcement of iPad mini6 will be Presented this Spring

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The main event every Apple fan is waiting for is a spring conference to be held on the 16-th of March. Its subject-matter is new devices introduction and one of them is iPad mini6.

The design of the iPad mini series has not been changed since the time it was first introduced (in 2012), and that’s what makes it so recognizable. However, this time the company decided to change its traditions and make a totally new design, hardware and screen.

An almost frameless 8,4-inch screen will take about 90% of the front panel, while its parameters are 195 x 126,6 mm in comparison with its previous 203 x 134,8 mm version. A hybrid OLED panel is going to be used in the device, which is almost two times thinner than a standard OLED panel. Apple’s designers and engineers decided to place a dactyloscopy sensor below the screen; this decision will provide much more space for placing the hardware.

iPad mini6 will be based on the Apple A14 processor, just the same as it is used in Apple iPhone 12 series. This is a super-fast 64-bit processor, comprising 6 cores, which can be clocked up to 3,1GHz and shows a great performance as well as low temperatures in both regular usage and gaming.

It is expected to see a new version of iPad Pro with a similar to iPad mini LED panel, except the fact it also has a 12,9-inch diagonal screen. So far, no other information about devices is added.

The AirTags and Apple Card that has been introduced before is also mentioned by the informant, but now the card will be available in many more countries.

LG will Provide Apple iPhone with Foldable Screens

Reading Time: 2 minutes

As it was reported earlier, Samsung is the only supplier of those collapsible panels for the foldable iPhone, but DigiTimes reports, that LG Display – a South Korean technological giant, is going to help Apple with the first iPhone foldable-screen creation.

It is predicted as in the case with an OLED 7,3-7,6 inch screen, Apple is going to provide the device with a stylus similar to S Pen.  Also, Apple has introduced a new kind of construction of the hinge part, which is inside the case, unlike the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip presented. This kind of construction is aimed to prevent dust inside the hinge system or phone itself.

Besides, Apple is reported to use a chemical hardening of the ceramic protection screen, that can’t be broken while flipping and it will prevent unevenness on the screen caused by multiple folding. It is still unknown if a protection glass (as the company is going to begin using a protection glass starting from iPhone 12s) on the back smartphone panel is awaited and there is still no information about the camera module, that will be used in the device.

However, the smartphone is planned to have 8Gb of RAM and what is more stunning – 1TB of flash memory, which makes the device one of the most spacious phones in the world. The cost of it is predicted to be about $1500, which is quite fine according to the company’s market position, but for example, the cost of its main competitor – Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is about $1300-$1400.

How the New iPhone 12s Pro will Look Like

Reading Time: 2 minutes

An unknown Chinese source announced the design of a new iPhone 12s Pro in high resolution, and it demonstrates the main differences in the way it looks and a few differences in general characteristics.

In general, it looks just like its previous “brother” – iPhone 12: it has got a flat frame along the perimeter of the whole case and a square camera module. Even though, all the surfaces, including the camera module, will be covered with a protection glass, as has already been reported before.

The smartphone is informed to lose its charging port. There are only holes for a speaker and microphone in the lower part of the phone. It is really hard to say now if it is an advantage. It means the phone will be charged by wireless chargers only and it is predicted, Apple will refuse regular chargers due to the MagSafe technology. Also, it will help to make the phone more protected from water and dust, however, lots of complaints are expected to appear on the point.

Some good news for gamers – iPhone 12s Pro will get a 120Hz refresh-rate screen (also, they say that there might be a possibility to buy a 180Hz or 240Hz iPhone modification), which will resurrect Apple-gamers’ opinion after the grand fiasco of iPhone 11 Pro Max. And of course, it will get a dactyloscopy sensor located below the screen. A great-known notch will be smaller, which will give a bit more space for the screen itself. Also, Apple agreed upon bringing Touch ID back, moreover, they made an in-display function for it. One of the possible reasons for this decision is the effect of COVID-19, as many iPhone 10 and 11 series users struggled with unlocking their phones due to wearing a face mask.

An official presentation of the iPhone 12s series is expected to be held later this year, approximately in September.

The First Penta-Cam Aarmoured Smartphone that has a Night Vision Mode and 5G

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Eventually, almost everyone faced the problem of a broken phone screen. There will be no such a problem with Ulefone Armor 11 5G even for the clumsiest person as you need to try REALLY HARD to break it.

Some days ago Ulefone presented their new model that is called Armor 11 5G (this is actually a modified version of Armor 10 5G that was presented the previous year). The phone has got 5 cameras, including the main 48-mp Sony IMX582 module and a frontal 16-mp camera. And what is more appealing, the phone has got a 20-mp night vision module.

Ulefone Armor 11 5G is based on MediaTek Dimensity 800 5G single-crystal system, having a 6,1-inch screen, 8Gb of RAM, and 256Gb memory card. As a new iPhone line, the smartphone can use 5G net, supplying it with a great performance. The 5200mAh battery is responsible for the great work duration and a wireless 10V charger. However, Armor 11 5G is working on Android 10, and for now, there is no possibility to update it to Android 11 (it is said to be possible only after the official release).

Of course, it has an NFC module and Google Pay support, face recognition, and dactyloscopy sensor. One of the aims of the device is its usage for military purposes, and for that, it has IP68/IP69K protection level and a military standard MIL-STD-810G certificate, which makes it perfect to be used in different rough conditions. The price of such a device is unknown yet.

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It is generally known nowadays rapid technology changes are becoming closely related to the world automobile market. Electric cars are the ones that are expected to replace common cars operated on conventional petrol, at least we are moving to it with giant strides. One of the first companies that made its bet for electric transport is Tesla, and they have become the leader of the market so far. However, many other associations saw the great success of Elon Musk’s company and decided to keep up.

One of those companies is the “Jaguar Land Rover” corporation. The British company announced their plan to leave the “petrol” market till 2025 and start their own production in the electric car industry. For the next 5 years, the company is to move Jaguar as well as their prime-segment models into fully eco-engines. It is worth noticing Jaguar has already produced an electric model (Jaguar I-Pace) which has a great success in the electric-cars market. Anyway, it is hard to imagine an electric version of Jaguar PROJECT-8.

Also “Jaguar Land Rover” company is planning to introduce six fully electric Land Rover models by the end of 2025, having no electric cars in their model-list right now. The first electric Land Rover is planned for 2024. It is also remarkable that 60% of Land Rover cars to be sold will be equipped with electric power units till the end of 2030. Till the same time, all Land Rover models will be presented in both variants – fully electric and with an internal consumption engine.

Besides, the company is planning to reject using diesel engines in all Jaguar and Land Rover models till the end of 2026.

Toyota is about to introduce an electric car being charged in 10 mins!

Reading Time: 2 minutesThere is a trend in the modern car industry to aim at the production of electric automobiles, which are of people’s interest and demand nowadays. Toyota, being one of the most significant Japanese car producers, is not an exception! The company has been experimenting with solid-state batteries since 2017 and is planning to present its newest technology on the mass market.

What is more compelling – only 10 minutes are needed to charge the battery from 5% to 90%. However, the information was given on the prototype, so the situation may be quite different as well as captivating than it was before.

Usually, it takes around 2 years to make a realization of a car prototype, but no one knows how much time is needed to create a totally new project of an electric car operated with an unknown type of tracking batteries, which are planned to be used in Toyota electric models of a new type.

There are lots of electric car advantages in comparison with the regular ones, though they are much more expensive in production. The batteries of this kind are predicted to be of use in automobiles in 2025, but if Toyota manages to start such a car production, it will make a giant step in electro car market promotion.

OnePlus 9 Pro – new Android-powered flagman | OnePlus lures buyers away from Samsung

Reading Time: 2 minutesThe latest information accounts for OnePlus stated this April they are going to present the new OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro. However, the company made a decision to move its presentation to mid-March 2021 due to Samsung Galaxy S21 presentation to be hold on 14 January 2021.

Also, Jeremy Smith (AKA “Concept Creator”) – a Dutch 3D designer, used the materials of OnePlus 9 Pro given by the company to create a 3D model of a new smartphone.

The new OnePlus flagman, as it is informed, will get a 6,7-inch Fluid Amoled display with QHD+ resolution, rounded sides, and a fingerprint scanner that will be inserted into the display. And some good information to cheer up mobile gamers – it will get 120Hz refresh rate.

The front camera with 32Mp resolution will be in the upper left smartphone’s corner. Talking about main cameras, OnePlus 9 will get quad-cam, while 5x optical zoom. Besides, the phone will be provided with stereo drivers with Dolby Atmos sound.

The most interesting part of the phone is its processor and it is a top-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 875. Certainly, there will be two versions of the phone: 8Gb RAM + 128Gb memory and 12Gb RAM + 256Gb memory. A 65-watt quick charge will be included in both versions.

96-core AMD processors – the new era of high performance!

Reading Time: 2 minutesCan you imagine how fast would it be to use a PC with a 96-core processor? AMD can!
It is informed that the next generation of AMD processors will be the last one to be based on AM4 socket.  All future desktop products are going to be on Zen 4 architecture, will have 5nm process, and therefrom, the new socket with a temporary unknown name is going to be presented.

However, the fact of getting more than 16 cores sounds to be not the best idea, talking about desktop versions, as there is Ryzen 9 5950X (it has 16 cores, 32 streams) that still do not fit into the market greatly with its $800 price, whereas server processors have no strict frames for performance. The source from Reddit says, that after MILAN (Zen 3), there will be GENOA (Zen 4) that will really get more than 64 cores. Also, it was stated, Zen 4 would have the SMT feature, which accounts for it to be supplied with twice more streams than cores and if we are to believe the very information under consideration, top-segment GENOA processors will have 192 streams while 96 cores.

A bit earlier, there was the data leak, that informed us about AMD to start with the new SMT4 feature for Zen 4 processors, what witnesses the possibility to have 4 streams for each core. The very feature gives much bigger opportunity to those, who are interested in 3D-modeling, video editing, online streams, or other highly demanding processes. Unfortunately, AMD decided to have this idea, at least for GENOA.

It is planned those 96 cores are to be placed on 12 chip plates, so there still will be 8 cores on each chip plate. And as for GENOA, it will support PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory. Such processors are expected at the end of 2021, the date of the end of 2022 is also regarded as possible.

Mobile gamers hate iPhone 12 series

Reading Time: 2 minutesRecently Apple has presented their new products – iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max and iPhone 12 Pro. However, many users are unhappy about the new line of the company, though they even got the new A14 Bionic core inside all of their models.

The problem is Apple decided to decrease the battery capacity of all 12 series devices, but according to the information given on the official website, the number of working hours didn’t change in comparison with iPhone 11 series. Unfortunately, when the situation comes to 3D-gaming sessions, the issue has become even more perceptible.

According to the Phone Arena 3D Gaming Battery Test results, iPhone 11 can be playable 2,5 times longer than the new flagman of the Apple company, where iPhone 11 can stay out of charge for more than 7,5 hours and iPhone 12 can be used for only 3 hours. This fact neglects the user experience of using A14 Bionic, to the side of its previous version. What is the most striking, that iPhone 11 can handle even more time without charging, than its higher brother iPhone 11 Pro.

However, many mobile gamers search for playing on non-iOS phones, as Android-powered phones give them more opportunities and better gaming experience. For example, if you look at the top segment of Android phones, you will be highly interested in using Xiaomi Mi10 Pro, that can handle around 10 hours of gaming, and Samsung Galaxy S20 (and it’s FE version), with more than 8 hours no-charging gaming, as these phones are completed with powerful 8-core processors (Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 for Xiaomi and Exynos 990 for Samsung).

Concerning regular users, iPhone 12 Pro, surprisingly, is on the top of the PhoneArena Browsing Battery test, but still stays lower than Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro and Google Pixel 5.

Generally speaking, I would not recommend buying iPhone 12 series for those, who use their phone mostly for playing games, but for those, who prefer style over high performance it will really be a great choice!
