Google is preparing a useful innovation for Android smartphones: open access to everyone and quickly share content with the group

Google is preparing to expand Nearby Share functionality to Android smartphones.

Soon, with the help of Nearby Share, it will be possible to see and give access to all nearby users and send files to several users at the same time. For now, Nearby Share allows you to send files to only one person at a time.

In the next update, Nearby Share will be able to “see” all Android devices nearby, the corresponding setting will be called Everyone. This optional setting will allow anyone nearby to share media with you if your device’s screen is not locked.

Apple AirDrop also has this feature. To avoid abuse, Google has a special temporary mode that will automatically switch Nearby Share accessibility settings to “contacts only” five minutes after activating the Everyone option. The Nearby Share Quick Settings menu allows you to quickly switch between the “Everyone” and “Contacts” options.

There will also be support for transferring content to a group of people at once, rather than to a single user. At the moment, the function does not work quite correctly.

As a reminder, the function of fast pairing and data transfer between Nearby Share devices was officially launched for Android in August 2020. The feature is available for devices with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and newer. It works similarly to the famous Apple AirDrop and replaces Android Beam.

Samsung trolled the bangs in the iPhone, and will eventually use it in the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra

Prominent informant Steve Hemmerstoffer, aka OnLeaks, has released the first computer-generated images of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra flagship tablet.

The biggest design innovation of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra should be a bang-shaped cutout. Despite the presence of this element, this tablet, like the recently announced MacBook Pro laptop, does not support 3D facial recognition.

It is worth remembering that after the release of the iPhone X, Samsung released a whole series of black PR videos in which it made fun of the large cutout in the screen, which was very unusual at that time. After a few years, the company doesn’t seem to regard bangs as the same ridiculous element as they once did.

The source adds that only the Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will receive such a notch, while the Galaxy Tab S8 and Galaxy Tab S8 + will not have bangs. In terms of specs, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra will have a 14.6-inch display, the Galaxy Tab S8 will have an 11-inch display, and the Galaxy Tab S8 + will have a 12.4-inch display.

Steve Hemmerstoffer at the beginning of the year published high-quality renders of the Samsung Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphones, which were later fully confirmed.

Full redesign of iPhone 14: periscope camera and small hole in the screen

Published

on

According to Mydrivers, LG Innotek is developing a periscope zoom lens for Apple, which is expected to be used in iPhones from 2022 or 2023.

Apple’s rival Samsung pioneered the periscope zoom lens in the Galaxy S20 series launched in January last year. Many other Android-based flagships from Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and other companies also actively use similar modules.

In the iPhone 13 Pro, despite using new image sensors and larger lenses, the optical zoom is only 3x. The difference with Android flagships remains very, very large.

The addition of a periscope camera should noticeably change the design of the rear panel. And if you consider the rumors of ditching the bangs in favor of a hole for the front camera, then the iPhone 14 may well bring the biggest design update since 2017, when the iPhone X hit the market.

The presentation of the iPhone 14 is expected in September next year.

This is what the Xiaomi 12 Pro might look like. The smartphone was shown on a new render

A Chinese insider has published a render of a new smartphone – according to him, this is how the Xiaomi 12 Pro will look. The device in the picture does not strike attention with design delights – there is still the same embedded front camera and a display bent onto the sides, as a result of which the screen does not have traditional side frames.

This image is generally consistent with rumors that the Xiaomi 12 screen will change slightly compared to the Xiaomi Mi 11: the novelty will simply use the latest generation Samsung AMOLED E5 panel with an embedded front camera – that is, there will be no sub-screen camera. The display will be curved, but it will not bend in all four directions – this decision Xiaomi will refuse.

According to the latest data, Xiaomi 12 will be released in December. The smartphone is credited with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 898 SoC, a triple camera with 50 MP sensors, a 5000 mAh battery, support for fast charging with a capacity of 120 W (wire) and 50 W (wireless).
