We’ve already seen TVs, smartphones and tablets with sliding screens, and in all of these cases Samsung has noted. But the company seems to be ready to equip even a smart watch with a sliding display. According to the source, the corresponding patent application was filed on June 2 of this year at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and the documentation appeared in the public domain today – December 9.
The meaning of the concept is well illustrated by the schematic images. In its normal state, the watch screen is round, but under certain circumstances (for example, to make it easier to read messages and notifications), it divides into two semicircles, each of which can be extended in length from the center. As a result, the circle turns into an oval, and the screen area increases by 40%.
The transformation of a circle into an oval can be initiated in various ways. For example, by pressing the side key or swiping on the touch screen. In the place of the conditional screen gap (that is, in the center of the circle), Samsung decided to place a camera. Moreover, a whole camera block would fit in this place. For example, with a flash and two modules. It is too early to talk about the commercial fate of such a development, but the concept for the future turned out to be interesting.
Smart watches Google Pixel Watch can surprise you with the amount of memory: there will be more flash memory than in some smartphones
Google announced the smart watch ten days ago, but kept silent about the technical characteristics of the novelty. Therefore, details about the device have to be collected bit by bit. A previous leak said the watch would get Samsung’s rather old Exynos 9110 SoC, but the new data is encouraging: the Pixel Watch may have a fresher SoC.
This scheme is not new, it has already been tested in a number of other wearable devices: a low-power SoC ensures that the device works for a long time with basic capabilities, and when all functions are supposed to be used to the maximum, a more powerful (and obviously more modern) hardware system is involved.
But even this is not interesting: Pixel Watch is credited with a lot of flash memory – as much as 32 GB. Such a volume for applications is clearly redundant, so it is suggested that Google will focus on the ability to download and store a large amount of music right on the watch. Which is good for sports. However, it will be possible to store podcasts right in the watch, for example. The amount of RAM will be “slightly more than the Galaxy Watch 4”. Samsung smartwatches have 1.5 GB of RAM, so it’s logical to assume 2 GB of RAM in Pixel Watch.
Finally, the Pixel Watch is said to be sensor-similar to the Fitbit Charge 5. This means that Google’s new product will provide the same vitals tracking capabilities. At a minimum, you can count on the monitoring of heart rate and SpO2, as a maximum – on the possibility of recording an ECG.
This concludes the new batch of details about the Google Pixel Watch. Recall that the novelty will go on sale in the fall.
You can dial a number and make a call directly from the watch. Fire-Bolt Tornado introduced
Fire-Boltt, which has already climbed into second place in the smartwatch market in India, introduced the Tornado model.
In the home market, the novelty costs about $64. One of its distinguishing features is the presence of a microphone and speaker, so when paired with a smartphone, you can make and receive calls directly from the watch. Moreover, the list of software includes a dialer, so you can not use your smartphone to make a call at all.
Also, the device received a large LCD screen with a diagonal of 1.72 inches with a resolution of 320 x 380 pixels. As for the rest, we can distinguish water and dust protection (IP67), 30 sports modes, a pulse oximeter function and autonomy of up to seven days in normal mode and up to two weeks in standby mode.
