Frustrating details about MIUI 13. Built on Android 11, few innovations

Published

on

Back in the summer, a Xiaomi spokesman confirmed that MIUI 13 will only be released by the end of this year. According to preliminary data, its announcement will take place in November, but, as a well-known Chinese insider writes, one should not expect much from MIUI 13.

According to him, the new shell will be very similar to the current one (that is, on MIUI 12, since MIUI 12.5 Enhanced looks exactly the same as MIUI 12), there will only be some changes in terms of the visual design of branded applications. At the same time, Xiaomi is preparing two versions of MIUI 13 – both on the latest Android 12 and on the basis of Android 11. So if someone thought that with the arrival of MIUI 13, the smartphone would definitely receive the latest version of Android, then you can say goodbye to such thoughts. Especially when it comes to a model released two years ago and earlier.

Finally, an insider indicates that MIUI 13 closed beta testing will begin at the end of this year. Apparently, right after its official premiere. Usually, a closed beta test takes at least a month, then another month is spent on an open beta test, and only after that the final version appears. So smartphones with MIUI 13 will not appear out of the box until next year. It is possible that even Xiaomi 12 will come out with MIUI 12.5 Enhanced, and only then will be among the first to receive MIUI 13 as an over-the-air update.

These details about MIUI 13 were shared by an informant known on Weibo under the nickname Digital Chat Station. He is well informed about the affairs of Chinese smartphone manufacturers. So, at one time, he was the first to accurately report the characteristics and release dates of Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11.

Linux kernel code already knows about AMD 96-core processors

Published

on

The latest Linux kernel patch has received the first confirmation of the existence of AMD processors with 96 cores.

More precisely, it talks about the new AMD Family 19h 10h-1Fh and A0h-AFh CPUs, which can contain up to 12 chiplets. Recall that each chiplet currently contains eight cores.

The code does not indicate which processors this information applies to, but, of course, we are not talking about consumer Ryzen. In this case, we are dealing with either server-side Epyc or Threadripper. And with regard to the former, everything agrees with the data of AMD itself.

Recall that the company recently talked about the Epyc Genoa processors on the Zen 4 architecture, which will just have up to 96 cores. As a result, we now know that the new Epyc chiplets will still contain eight cores, but the number of chiplets will increase. And in Bergamo processors, their number should reach 16 at all, if AMD does not change the chiplets for these CPUs.

WhatsApp Web has a new built-in sticker maker that lets you upload your own images and convert them into stickers that you can send to your contacts. To do this, you just need to click the attachment icon (paperclip), click Sticker, and then select the image.

A number of editing tools are provided to help you transform your original image into the sticker you want. These editing tools include emojis that can be pasted over a sticker, custom text, advanced cropping tools, and even the ability to add more images over the original.

The Sticker Maker custom feature is currently only available on WhatsApp Web, but coming soon to desktop apps as well. It is not yet known when the feature will be released on Android and iOS, but it can be expected.

WhatsApp has been working on improving its app for a long time and has introduced a number of new features in just the past few months. These include new security features such as instant calls and message complaints, the ability to hide the last visit from certain contacts, and even functionality that allows you to use WhatsApp on multiple devices without connecting to your smartphone.

Skoda Luniaq lunar rover presented with transparent aluminum windows and six wheels

During the Czech Space Week, Xtend Design unveiled the Luniaq lunar rover, inspired by the Skoda Enyaq.

This electric rover will be able to carry up to four astronauts. Luniaq will be built on the NASA MMSEV (Multi-Mission Space Exploration Vehicle) platform, which has already been used to build other lunar rovers.

The Luniaq will receive large windows that allow it to assess the situation with a 180-degree viewing angle. Moreover, the windows are made not of glass, but of transparent aluminum, which is also more resistant to micrometeorites than glass. Layers of polyethylene add extra protection against radiation, and a lower front window allows drivers to view the moon’s surface directly in front of the vehicle.

The Luniaq will be equipped with stereoscopic cameras to scan the area and acquire 3D images, allowing for remote control of the vehicle. Michelin Tweel technology will be used to make large soft wheels.

Sustainable development can enable us to keep moving forward and expand the biosphere to other places in space. We would like to inspire people on how we could continue to progressively develop our technologies and one day live and travel in places other than Earth. Humanity is technically advanced enough that it becomes just a matter of our motivation and funding. A new era of electric mobility could continue throughout the solar system and beyond.
