It looks like the likelihood of “bangs” in Apple laptops may be even higher than it seemed. Resource MacRumors found a mention of this in one of the Chinese forums. And the corresponding message is already two months old.
Moreover, it says that the MacBook Air will also get a similar cutout. The message allegedly belongs to the same author who recently wrote about the MacBook Pro, only now this message has been noticed, unlike the previous one.
In addition, the same source claims that the new MacBook Air, due out in 2022, will get rid of the usual wedge-shaped silhouette, which means that the thickness of the case will be approximately the same at the front and back. It is unclear to what extent this information is correct, although we have already seen a photo that allegedly confirms the presence of the “bangs”. Recall that the announcement of Apple will take place tomorrow, so tomorrow it will become clear whether the era of “bangs” in Apple products will be delayed.
We are already familiar with Xiaomi and Redmi laptops, and soon Poco will have their own laptops
According to the source, Xiaomi wants to expand the range of its own brands under which laptops will be sold. Many people know Mi Notebook under the brand name Xiaomi and RedmiBook under the brand name Redmi, and soon the emergence of notebooks under the Poco brand is expected.
The Indian regulator BIS gives a reason to think that laptops will appear in the Poco range. A battery with catalog number G16B01W was found in its base. This battery is used in the Redmi G laptop, its characteristics are also known – 15.2 V and 55.02 Wh. But at the same time, the battery is certified under two brands – Mi and Poco.
What will a Poco laptop be like if it’s really planned? You can probably forget about a stand-alone model: most of the current Poco smartphones are renamed Xiaomi and Redmi devices. The scenario in which the Redmi G 2021 will debut under the Poco brand is more likely. In the configuration of this model, recall, a 16.1-inch screen with a 144 Hz frame rate, Intel Core 11 and Ryzen 5000 processors, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD – and battery G16B01W.
The Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 for Windows laptops falls short of even the Apple M1. The first tests of the new Qualcomm SoC appeared on the web
In the Geekbench database, an unknown Lenovo QRD device was lit up, based on the as-yet-unrevealed Qualcomm platform.
The interest in this case is that we are talking about a laptop, and the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is installed as a platform.
Recall that the Snapdragon 8cx line debuted in 2018, then in 2020 the second generation of this SoC came out, which differed little from the first. And now, apparently, a third generation looms on the horizon.
The configuration of the single-chip system is still unknown, but the software says about eight cores and a frequency of 2.69 GHz. The result for Snapdragon 8cx Gen 3 is as follows: 1010 points and 5335 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. For comparison, the results of the current Qualcomm solution are between 700-800 and 2800-3100 points. That is, the performance gain will be quite large, although even Apple M1 is very, very far away.
Windows laptops with Exynos or MediaTek processors. This may soon become a reality.
It is possible that the Windows Arm laptop market will expand significantly in the near future.
According to reports, an agreement between Qualcomm and Microsoft will soon expire, under which Windows Arm can only run on Qualcomm SoCs.
There is no exact date for the expiration of the agreement, but the source says it will happen soon. This means that laptops based on SoC MediaTek, Samsung and other market players can appear on the market.
Earlier, we recall, there were already rumors about SoC Exynos with GPU AMD, which will be designed for mobile PCs. That is, we can see such laptops with Windows. In addition, MediaTek recently announced that it is interested in this area.
