Samsung plans to release an image sensor with a resolution of 576 megapixels

Published

on

Samsung posted an interesting timeline at the recent SEMI Europe Summit, according to a source. It shows the progress of Samsung image sensors since 2000, when the South Korean manufacturer released a front-illuminated 0.3MP sensor. In 2010, a 5MP sensor was released, which used back-illuminated technology. In 2013, the company introduced ISOCELL technology, which improves sensor performance by reducing cross-talk between adjacent pixels.

As the resolution increased, the pixel size decreased. In 2014, Samsung was the first to master the mass production of 16 megapixel sensors with 1 micron pixels. The illustration itself gives a complete picture of the most important milestones of more than 20 years of journey. Perhaps the most interesting is the far right side of the timeline. It shows that Samsung has planned to release 576MP image sensors for 2025. As you know, while the maximum resolution is 200 megapixels.

Large electric sedan Mercedes-Benz EQS was cheaper than the gasoline S-Class

Published

Mercedes-Benz today announced the cost of its large EQS sedan, which is an electric version of the flagship S-Class. And, I must say, the price was somewhat unexpected, because the EQS turned out to be cheaper than the gasoline version.

The EQS will go on sale in the US this fall, and the basic version of the EQS 450+ is priced at $ 103,360. And that’s not including the $ 7,500 federal subsidy. The second option, EQS 580 4MATIC, is more expensive – $ 126,360. For comparison, the cost of a gasoline S-Class in the US starts at $ 112,150, and there are no subsidies.

The power of the single-engine version of the EQS (that is, the basic EQS ​​450+) is 329 hp, the power of the all-wheel drive version (EQS 580 4MATIC) is 516 hp. The claimed acceleration time to 100 km / h is about 4 s, the maximum speed is limited at around 210 km / h. The cars are equipped with traction batteries with a capacity of 90 and 107.7 kWh, in the second case, the declared mileage on one charge is 770 km (according to the WLTP cycle, in reality it will be less). In both cases, the proprietary multimedia system MBUX is provided, but the screen diagonal in the EQS 450+ is 12.8 inches, and in the EQS 580 4MATIC a 56-inch “hyperscreen” is installed.

But cyberattacks will be answered

The United States does not seek to unleash a new Cold War and does not want to see the world split into tough blocs, said US President Joe Biden at the general political debate of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly (GA).

“We do not want a return of the Cold War or a world divided into blocs,” Biden said in his first US presidential address from the UN rostrum.

“The United States is ready to cooperate with any state that is ready to solve existing problems,” the American leader added.

Biden also noted that Washington is in favor of developing uniform rules for the safe behavior of states in cyberspace. The US is strengthening its infrastructure to better defend against foreign hackers.

Biden stressed that the country reserves the right to respond to hacker attacks in the strongest possible way because they threaten the people and interests of the United States.

Pros and cons of iPhone 13. What they write about news from CNN, Engadget, Wired and other specialized publications

Published

After the first review of the iPhone 13 Pro by The Verge, excerpts from which we have already published, reviews of CNN, Engadget, Wired and other authoritative publications appeared on the Web.

Reviewers are praising the smartphone’s improved cameras and display, dropping 64GB and upgrading to 128GB of flash storage. They also agree on their criticism of Lighting, whereas most of the iPad lineup now uses USB-C.

Also, all reviews confirm the increased battery life that iPhone users have long dreamed of. All models of the new line began to work longer. In particular, the iPhone 13 mini began to work much longer: if last year’s iPhone 12 mini was discharged by lunchtime, then the iPhone 13 mini can work all day, albeit with “light use.” That being said, the iPhone 13 can last up to two days, which is really impressive.

As for the display, there are pros and cons. CNN notes improvements in maximum brightness that make the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini easier to use in bright environments. However, they do not support 120Hz refresh rates. This feature is only available on the iPhone 13 Pro or iPhone 13 Pro Max. Wired also praises 120 hertz displays, which are adaptive to efficiently save power.

New smartphones take great pictures, but revolutionary changes should not be expected. Wired writes that smartphones are “still excellent” in photography, although the WSJ warns that iPhone 12 owners probably shouldn’t change their smartphones. Differences between photos taken with iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 are difficult to notice, although if you have an iPhone XR or iPhone 11 then replacing them with an iPhone 13 would be more logical.

At this stage, the cinematic mode seems to be more of a curiosity than a real “professional” feature. The Verge notes that it is fun to experiment with, but also warns, “It seems like it has a few years before it really becomes useful for anything other than casual use.” The WSJ criticized this video mode, claiming that it is difficult to distinguish the edges of objects.

As a result, most reviewers agree that the owners of the iPhone 12 are unlikely to change their smartphones, but the rest of the iPhone 13 fans will definitely like it very much.
