Instagram prepares a new option to view TikTok-style stories

Published

on

Instagram is carrying out a new test, with a small group of users, which allows us to see a new style in the display of Stories.

And yes, it is also a dynamic that we have already seen on TikTok. So get ready to find a new similarity between Instagram and TikTok.

As mentioned Matt NavarreInstagram is testing a vertically scrolling Stories feed in Turkey. Yes, just like the TikTok feed or the dynamics that we find in the Reels section.

So you would no longer have to swipe to move left or right, instead you would always scroll vertically. While it’s not a huge change, there’s no denying that it feels a lot more natural to scroll through the vertical feed, as that’s how we consume all content on mobile.

From the Facebook News Feed to YouTube homepage videos. And of course, it would be another Instagram strategy to further boost video content and it will be consistent with the Reels feed.

Instagram already hinted at this proposal last year, but it was not an operational function. However, there are now screenshots of how this new dynamic works. Of course, still on a trial basis, and only for a group of users.

It will be necessary to see if Instagram decides to implement this dynamic of “vertical stories” in any of its future updates. Let’s remember that there are many Instagram features still in testing, and some new features that should arrive in the coming months.

For example, the return of the long-awaited chronological feed, which will be part of a new dynamic that will allow you to choose how to view Instagram posts. So many news are expected during 2022.

In China, an inexpensive smartphone with a 10x optical zoom can.

A $250 smartphone with 10x optical zoom?  In China, such a device will allegedly be released under the NZone brand.

NZone S7 Pro

The operator China Mobile under the NZone brand is preparing to release a model with the catalog number SP210, which will receive a triple main camera with a 10x optical zoom. Unfortunately, we only know that the main sensor will have a resolution of 50 megapixels.

Perhaps the information about 10x optical zoom is a mistake or a typo. Firstly, since the smartphone will cost only $250, and secondly, because NZone is China Mobile’s brand under which the company releases Huawei smartphones. And Huawei simply does not have an inexpensive smartphone with a 10x optical zoom. In fact, there are no such devices on the market at all.

Perhaps this refers to a hybrid zoom, or even only digital. But if, by some miracle, a $250 smartphone with a 10x optical zoom does come out, it will be a unique product.

From the rest, a 6.7-inch IPS screen, 5G support, an unknown eight-core platform, 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of flash memory, and a 4900 mAh battery are reported. Dimensions will be 163.3 x 74.7 x 8.4 mm with a weight of 195 g.

Apple wants to use E Ink screens in the iPhone

Apple may start using E Ink screens in its devices. Well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo spoke about this.

Apple wants to use E Ink screens in the iPhone and iPad.  The company is testing similar displays as auxiliary displays for flexible models.

Apple is testing an E Ink display for future foldable devices. The E Ink color display can be the go-to solution for foldable devices that need a cover or second screen due to its excellent power savings

Kuo says that Apple considers such screens as additional ones. For example, it can be a small secondary screen on a foldable iPhone or a screen on an iPad case.

E Ink screens only consume energy to change the image, so they are great for such tasks. We have already seen smartphones with such screens, so there is nothing new for the market.

When such devices can enter the market is not yet clear, but Apple may not release the first foldable smartphones until 2025, according to the same analyst.

A new era in the Windows mobile game console market

With the release of Ryzen 6000 mobile processors, equipped with very powerful iGPUs, a new era of Windows handheld game consoles is dawning.

The Aya Neo 2 console with Ryzen 7 6800U was unveiled yesterday, and now GPD has boasted that it has already acquired a batch of the same APUs, so GPD Win Max 2 test models based on this platform should be ready by June. Judging by the entry, the company did not expect that it would be able to get the processors so quickly.

A new era in the Windows mobile game console market.  GPD has already received the Ryzen 7 6800U APU for the Win Max 2 console

GPD Win Max 2 was introduced back in March, but with a Core i7-1280P processor, but its graphics subsystem is no match for the iGPU in the Ryzen 7 6800U.

As a result, before the end of the year, at least two more portable set-top boxes with Windows that can handle modern games should appear on the market. True, apparently, in both cases we are talking about a Full HD screen, which creates an additional load on the GPU. For the same Steam Deck, the resolution is HD.
