In Japan, introduced the physical version of the Gboard keyboard – it is very long

The division of Google Japan introduced the physical keyboard Gboard in a very unusual form factor. The novelty resembles a long stick – there the buttons are placed in one row, which is why the length of such a keyboard is 1650 mm. Google Japan believes that with the Gboard Bar it is easier to find the right key, and you can also enter text together.

This keyboard can also be used as a ruler or fishing tackle holder. You can also touch the switch.

This is not the first such experiment of the Japanese branch of the company. There, last year they showed a version of the device in the form of a cup for a traditional tea ceremony. And in the future, it is planned to release a flexible version of the Gboard Bar that can be rolled up and put in your pocket.

So far, this is just a joke, not a single such device has been launched into the series, but the idea itself looks original.

Bullitt Group and MediaTek want to launch a satellite enabled smartphone

The British manufacturer Bullitt Group, which produces devices under the brands CAT and Motorola, intends to release a smartphone with satellite communications. They want to implement this project together with the Chinese chipmaker MediaTek.

Bullitt Group and MediaTek want to launch a satellite-enabled smartphone

It is assumed that the new smartphone will provide calls and text data via satellite, although it is not yet clear how this will work. The device itself will be released in the first quarter of 2023.

The novelty has been developed for two years, so the project is nearing completion. According to Bullitt Group co-founder Richard Wharton, previously the seamless integration of satellite communications into a smartphone was accompanied by problems, but now they are solved.

The new phone will be the first to use MediaTek’s 3GPP NTN chipset. The software will keep track of what type of connection is currently being used – Wi-Fi or cellular network. The connection to the satellite will be carried out only in the absence of both of these options.

It is claimed that the time to connect to the satellite and send a message is about 10 seconds. This is longer than a regular connection, but still pretty fast.

Note that Apple already has this and Samsung will soon have it.

The GeForce RTX 4080 can also be overclocked to incredible

Galax continues to prove that they are one of the best when it comes to overclocking graphics cards. After the departure of EVGA, Galax as a whole is probably the only company that places a strong emphasis on this direction.

The GeForce RTX 4080 can also be overclocked to incredible frequencies.  Galax RTX 4080 SG took the frequency over 3.6 GHz on the core

The GeForce RTX 4080 SG model was able to overclock to a frequency of over 3.6 GHz on the core. More precisely, we are talking about a frequency of 3615 MHz. This is slightly less than the RTX 4090 HOF at 3.8 GHz, but it’s still an incredible figure. Especially if you keep in mind that the GeForce RTX 4080 SG is no match for the HOF versions. At the same time, it is not yet known whether Galax will release the RTX 4080 HOF.

Galax, unfortunately, does not disclose overclocking details, but it can be assumed that we are talking about the use of liquid nitrogen, as in the case of extreme overclocking RTX 4090 HOF.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 single-chip system will be much more productive than its predecessor, according to Xiaomi.

The company, advertising the upcoming Xiaomi 13 line, which will just be based on the new Qualomm platform, says that the CPU in the new SoC is 37% faster than its predecessor, and the GPU is 42% faster.

Allegedly, with such indicators, the processor part will be at the level of the Apple A16 Bionic, and the graphics part of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 will be even higher.

At the same time, it is not clear what tests Xiaomi is talking about, since, for example, in Geekbench, the new Qualcomm platform really catches up with the A16 Bionic, but only in multi-threaded mode.

Whatever the case, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is sure to be very powerful, but that has been true of all flagship platforms for years now.
