Motorola could once again be the first to launch a smartphone based on Qualcomm’s new flagship platform.
The source says that Motorola’s new product based on Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 could be released as early as mid-November. Recall that last year the first carrier of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 was also the device of the American brand.
What smartphone Motorola may be the first this year, while one can only guess. In the past it was the Moto Edge X30, so now it could be its successor.
Last time, Motorola itself noted that the demand for a smartphone was higher than expected. Perhaps just because of the fact that the device was the first of its kind. If this bet played out a year ago, Motorola may well try again.
Indestructible smartphone Samsung Galaxy Xcover6 Pro with a replaceable battery was highly appreciated for maintainability
The Samsung Galaxy Xcover6 Pro is IP68 rated and US military standard MIL-STD-810H compliant, but comes with a tool-less removable back cover for quick access to a replacement battery when needed. A simple rubber gasket keeps water out.
The smartphone was dismantled on the PBKreviews channel, while it received very good reviews for maintainability. After all, battery replacement is one of the most popular types of repair.
Samsung used standard Phillips screws. In addition, the 3.5mm headphone jack is on a separate module that is held in place by a screw. It takes some disassembly to get to it, but it’s not soldered to the board. The USB-C charging port is on a separate circuit board, and there are spring contacts underneath it and below the speaker assembly.
At 9.9mm thin and 235g, the Samsung Galaxy Xcover6 Pro is thicker and heavier than most phones with 6.6-inch displays and 4050 mAh batteries for the sake of security and repair-friendly design.
Fans will love this iPhone 14 Pro feature: iOS 16.1 will support streaming sports in Dynamic Island
Apple has confirmed that iOS 16.1 will feature a new Live Activity feature that allows iPhone users to get real-time updates on the lock screen about sports events, food delivery status, and more. Beta testers confirm that on iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max, live sports are already integrated into Dynamic Island.
For example, during a football match in Dynamic Island, a real-time scoreboard is displayed. With a long press, Dynamic Island expands to show elapsed time and other important information. IT House confirms that when the iPhone 14 Pro is locked, the score is displayed in a widget on the lock screen. Also, Dynamic Island will immediately notify you if any team scores a goal.
To test this feature on an iPhone running iOS 16.1 beta, you need to subscribe to supported events in the TV app. Apple said the feature is available for MLB events for users in the US, Canada, Australia, UK, Brazil, Mexico, Japan, and South Korea, and NBA and Premier League events for US and Canadian users only.
iOS 16.1 will be released later this year. In addition to adding support for Live Activity in third-party apps, the update will include a new green energy charging option for users in the US, support for Matter accessories in the Home app, and Apple Fitness+ workouts without the need for an Apple Watch.
With the iOS 16.1 beta, Apple opened up the Dynamic Island Application Programming Interface (API) and also released a design guide that outlines specifications for developers to add Live Activity notifications to their apps.
Xiaomi has never had such a phone. Xiaomi Civi 2 unveiled with dual front camera, Snapdragon 7 Gen1, wavy back panel and thin body
Xiaomi today officially introduced the Civi 2 smartphone. The novelty again turned out to be thin and light (with a 4500 mAh battery installed inside), but this is not the main thing. Civi 2 is the first Xiaomi phone with a 32-megapixel dual front camera, and the first in the world based on the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 single-chip system.
Almost only women appear in advertising materials – it is easy to understand what audience the device is designed for. Users will surely appreciate both the gradient colors with sparkles and the special version in white with a wavy texture on the back panel.
Civi 2 received a 6.55-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, a frame rate of 120 Hz. Snapdragon 7 Gen1 is powered by a 2387mm vapor chamber cooling system2.
The front camera uses two identical Samsung S5K3D2 image sensors with a resolution of 32 megapixels. Lenses – wide angle and ultra wide angle with a field of view of 100 °. Xiaomi focuses maximum attention on the front camera: the announcement was accompanied by a large number of pictures taken with its help, while the main camera received very little attention.
However, the main camera sensor is in line with many of this year’s flagships – the 50-megapixel Sony IMX766. He is accompanied by sensors with a resolution of 20 (Sony IMX376K) and 2 (GC02M1) megapixels.
The phone supports 67W charging. The thickness of the device is 7.23 mm, weight – 171.8 grams. The Civi 2 configuration has stereo speakers, an NFC chip, an IR emitter. Prices are as follows: 8/128 GB – $335, 8/256 GB – $350, 12/256 GB – $390.
