In two days, Xiaomi will officially present the Xiaomi 12, 12 Pro and 12X smartphones, but the source already has all the characteristics and cost of the Xiaomi 12X at its disposal. This model is expected to become the base model in the new flagship line.

Earlier it was said that Xiaomi 12X would be a compact model, and new data confirm this – the smartphone is assigned a 6.28-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD resolution with a frame rate of 120 Hz. It will be a display from a local Chinese manufacturer, not Samsung.

Hardware platform Xiaomi 12X – SoC Snapdragon 870. The amount of RAM LPDDR5 will be 8-12 GB, UFS 3.1 flash memory – 128-256 GB. The main camera is represented by three sensors: Sony IMX766v with a resolution of 50 megapixels with optical stabilization, OmniVision OV13B with a resolution of 13 megapixels with an ultra-wide-angle lens and a 5-megapixel sensor for macro shooting. Embedded front camera – with a 20-megapixel Samsung S5K3T2 sensor.

Xiaomi 12X will receive a 4500 mAh battery with support for 67 W fast charging. It will take 36 minutes to fully charge the battery. Also in the device configuration are JBL stereo speakers, seventh-generation toughened Gorilla Glass to protect the display, and a metal 6000-series aircraft-grade aluminum side bezel, NFC and IR emitter.

The cost of the basic version of the Xiaomi 12X with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory is $ 470. The variant with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory is priced at $ 520, and the price of the top version with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory is $ 565.

Worlds first 14 laptop with 75Wh battery and Magic OS

Huawei has officially unveiled the next-generation 14-inch MagicBook 14 laptop. Even before the announcement, Huawei characterized the novelty as a device with outstanding autonomy, and now it became clear why it was implemented: the developers call the novelty the world’s first 14-inch laptop with a 75 Wh battery. It was also said about the influence of Magic OS (this is a set of proprietary applications for Windows) on the device’s ability to work 20 hours offline, but battery capacity still plays a decisive role here.

I must say, while the MagicBook 14 2022 is thin and compact (although the screen bezels could be smaller), it even allows you to play games – and even with ray tracing! The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 discrete 3D accelerator is responsible for graphics processing in this model. However, the basic models get by with integrated graphics, and the “middle” version offers a simpler discrete GPU – the GeForce MX 550.

Processors – Intel Core i5-12500H in the base version and Intel Core i7-12650H – in the top one. The amount of LPDDR5 RAM was 16 GB, the amount of SSD – 512 GB. The novelty received a new cooling system with two fans, two heat pipes and a radiator increased by 66% of the area. Compared to its predecessor, the airflow is increased by 35%.

The 14-inch laptop screen covers 88.15% of the lid. The resolution is 2160 x 1440 pixels, the frame rate is standard 60 Hz. The display is characterized by a brightness of 300 cd/m2, a contrast ratio of 1500:1 and coverage of 100% of the sRGB color space.

World's first 14

The case of Honor MagicBook 14 2022 is made of aluminum. The thickness is 15.9 mm, and the weight of the device is 1.54 kg. The configuration of the device also includes a fingerprint scanner built into the power key, a backlit keyboard, a webcam that allows you to record 720p video, a pair of USB-C ports.

World's first 14

The new MagicBook 14 with Core i5 retails for $810, but early adopters can pre-order for $735. The Core i7 version is priced at $840. Sales of new items in China will start on May 19.

The Mars helicopter Ingenuity failed to communicate with the Perseverance rover for the first time. The connection has already been restored.

The Mars helicopter Ingenuity failed to communicate with the Perseverance

For the first time in more than a year, the Ingenuity Mars helicopter failed to communicate with the Perseverance rover at the scheduled time. The connection was finally restored.

The Mars helicopter Ingenuity failed to communicate with the Perseverance rover for the first time.  The connection has already been restored.

The communication failure took place on May 3, NASA talked about it a few days later, but many media then missed this news. Helicopter data indicates that the crash was the result of the helicopter going into low power mode, possibly due to a seasonal increase in airborne dust.

Dust reduces the amount of sunlight reaching the helicopter’s solar panel, which reduces Ingenuity’s ability to recharge its six lithium-ion batteries. When the battery state of charge fell below the low limit, one of the FPGAs that manages Ingenuity’s operating state was turned off, turning other avionics on and off as needed to maximize power savings. It also manages the heaters that keep the helicopter surviving the cold Martian nights, maintains accurate time, and controls when the helicopter must wake up for communication with Perseverance.

Accordingly, when during the next Martian night the FPGA turned off, the onboard clock of the helicopter, which indicates the time when communication with Perseverance occurs, was reset. Ingenuity’s heaters, critical to keeping electronics and other components operating at temperature, have shut down. When the sun rose the next morning and the solar panel began charging the batteries, the clock on the helicopter was out of sync with the clock on board the rover. In fact, when Ingenuity thought it was time to contact Perseverance, the rover’s base station wasn’t listening because it shouldn’t be at the time.

To make sure Perseverance heard the call, Perseverance mission controllers ordered the rover to spend nearly all of Sol 429 (May 5) listening to the helicopter signal. It arrived at 11:45 local Martian time. Data transmitted was limited to deliberately conserve battery life, but critical health and safety data for the helicopter was nominal. Radio communication between Ingenuity and Perseverance was stable, the spacecraft temperature was within expected limits, the solar panel was recharging the battery at the rate expected for this season, and the battery was healthy at 41% full charge.

We have always known that the Martian winter and dust storm season will bring new challenges to Ingenuity, such as a colder sun, more atmospheric dust, and more frequent dust storms. Every flight and every mile of distance traveled 30 sols over our original mission pushed the spacecraft to its limits every sol on Mars.

The Ingenuity and Perseverance teams have come up with a plan that they hope will make a difference. Their goal is to help the helicopter’s battery build up enough charge over the next few sols to keep it running all the spacecraft’s essential systems on a cold Martian night. The new commands are lowering the temperature at which the helicopter turns on its heaters from -15 to -40 degrees Celsius. The helicopter then quickly shuts down instead of wasting battery power on the heaters. The team hopes that this strategy will allow the battery to retain all the charge accumulated during the day.

At the moment, no new NASA publications regarding Ingenuity have appeared.

Periscope telephoto 8 GB of RAM and a huge screen

Hisense has released a very unusual smartphone H60. Unusual it is not at all in design, but in terms of price and parameters.

Judging by the available data, in China the novelty will cost only about 218 dollars. At the same time, for example, there is a periscope telephoto. This 8 MP camera provides 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom. There is also a 48MP main camera and a depth sensor. That is, unlike some even flagship smartphones, there is no width in the set, but there is a telephoto lens, and also a periscope one.

The H60 also received 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory, which at $218 is a very good deal. One of the secrets of the low price is the platform. This is Unisoc T7520 (Recently, some sources of the Unisoc platform are called Ziguang, but Ziguang is simply part of the Tsinghua Unigroup holding).

The Unisoc T7520 isn’t a top platform, but it’s built on a 6nm process and offers 5G support, four Cortex-A76 cores, four Cortex-A55 cores, a Mali-G57 GPU, and Snapdragon 750G-level performance.

Returning to the smartphone, it is also equipped with a 5000 mAh battery with support for 18-watt charging and a 6.81-inch 60-Hz screen.
