More Snapdragon platforms needed. Qualcomm unveils four new SoCs, including one without 4G support



Qualcomm has decided to expand its already very large range of SoCs for smartphones. If earlier only flagship SoCs received the Plus set-top box, and even then not every year, now there are more such products.

So, Qualcomm has introduced four new products: Snapdragon 778G Plus 5G, Snapdragon 695 5G, Snapdragon 480 Plus 5G and Snapdragon 680 4G.

SoC Snapdragon 778G Plus differs from the usual Snapdragon 778G, increased from 2.4 to 2.5 GHz frequency of older processor cores and 20% faster GPU.

The Snapdragon 480 Plus also features an increased CPU frequency (already at 200 MHz) and increased GPU performance. Apparently, there are no other differences.

SoC Snapdragon 695 in comparison with Snapdragon 690 got mmWave 5G support. In addition, the performance of the processor part has been increased by 15%, and the GPU has become faster by 30%. Moreover, there is also a transition from the 8 nm to 6 nm process technology. As a result, the Snapdragon 695 looks more like the platforms of the Snapdragon 700 line.

As for the Snapdragon 680, this is one of the few fresh platforms without 5G support. The platform is based on the 6 nm process technology, has Kryo 265 processor cores and Adreno 610 GPU.

If we compare this platform with the already middle-aged Snapdraon 665, then the situation is rather ambiguous. They have the same GPU, although not necessarily with the same frequency. The novelty has newer processor cores Kryo 265 versus Kryo 260 and they work at 2.4 GHz versus 2 GHz. At the same time, the old platform has a Snapdragon X12 modem with a download speed of up to 600 Mbps, and the new one has a Snapdragon X11 with a speed of up to 390 Mbps.

FSP Group Introduces World’s First 750W SFX 12VO PSU



Recently, the FSP Group announced the release of the FSP750-27SCB power supply, which the manufacturer himself calls the world’s first 750W SFX 12VO power supply. This PSU reduces PC standby power consumption by complying with the CEC Tier 2 energy efficiency standard. It also meets the requirements of next generation processors, making it suitable for high-end small-sized PCs.

Compared to power supplies with multiple rails, 12VO power supplies only have two rails – 12V and 12Vsb. The rest of the voltages are generated by the converters on the board, which can increase the conversion efficiency. In addition, this allowed to reduce the number of wires connected to the motherboard from 24 to 10. The 4 + 4 connector for the processor is retained, and for video cards – additional power connectors PCle with an 8-pin connector and connectors for 6 and 2 pins. Reducing the number of wires is said to make it easier to assemble and repair the computer and improve cooling conditions.

The new PSU has over 90% conversion efficiency and is 80Plus Gold certified. The DC voltage conversion power supply uses only Japanese electrolytic capacitors. Cooling of components is entrusted to the 92mm fan. The cable system is fully modular. Black flat cables are included. Also included is an adapter for installation instead of a regular ATX power supply.

The unit provides protection against overcurrent, voltage and power, short circuit and overheating. The manufacturer does not name the price of the novelty.

This is what Huawei’s first smartwatch that measures blood pressure looks like. Huawei Watch D showed on the render



Earlier, Huawei has already said that it is going to introduce a smartwatch with support for blood pressure measurement by the end of the year, and now a render of the device has been published on the Weibo social network.

The render is indicative: it shows the most important thing – the measured blood pressure, and just below – the pulse. This watch will be addressed to those who are much more actively monitoring their vital signs than their progress during training. Otherwise, instead of a dedicated Health key, there would be a button labeled Sport (or something like that).

In terms of design, the new product differs from the current models of Huawei, but this is understandable. One might think that the device, along with a heart rate sensor, will receive a function for determining blood oxygen saturation. And if there is also the possibility of measuring the ECG, then Watch D can be called the most functional device available on the market based on the capabilities of monitoring vital signs. By the way, Huawei watches have already learned how to measure body temperature.

The official premiere of the Huawei Watch D is expected in December. Also in December we are waiting for the premiere of the Huawei clamshell smartphone, which will compare favorably with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 with a larger external display.

In this market, Samsung smartphones accounted for half of all sales. The company’s achievement in Vietnam contrasts with other brands



Samsung has been the leader in the smartphone market for many years, but its positions vary greatly from country to country. As it turned out, in Vietnam, Samsung crushed half of the market.

At the end of the third quarter, the Korean giant took 49% of the Vietnamese market, and a year ago the company’s share was 36%. At the same time, almost all other companies from the top five recorded a decrease in their market shares.

As you can see, only Vivo was able to increase its share from 6% to 8%, but Oppo, Xiaomi and Realme cannot boast of this. At the same time, the market as a whole sank by 28%, so against this background Samsung’s achievement is even more significant.

In this market, Samsung smartphones accounted for half of all sales.  The company's achievement in Vietnam contrasts with other brands

Budget smartphones helped the company achieve such indicators. The Galaxy A12, A22 and A03s were the top-selling models in Vietnam. By the way, Galaxy A12, as we already know, was the second most popular worldwide this year.
