The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are truly unique. Google confirms these are the world’s first smartphones to only support 64-bit Android apps

Google has confirmed that its Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro smartphones are the first in the world to only support 64-bit Android apps.

A couple of weeks ago, users noticed that Google’s new products do not run old 32-bit applications, and now the company has published a little material about this.

The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are truly unique.  Google confirms these are the world's first smartphones to only support 64-bit Android apps

The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are the first Android phones to only support 64-bit apps. This configuration ends OS support for 32-bit code, reducing memory usage, improving performance, and improving security. We expect this device configuration to become common over time.

64-bit applications run faster because they have access to additional registers and instructions that 32-bit applications cannot. In addition, newer processors provide up to 25% better performance when executing 64-bit code, or even drop support for 32-bit code entirely.

The 64-bit version can help improve security. The larger address space makes protections such as ASLR more effective, and the spare bits can be used to protect the integrity of the control flow. These countermeasures can reduce the chance that an attacker can take control of your device.

Removing support for 32-bit code saves up to 150MB of RAM that was used by the OS even when 32-bit applications weren’t running. This memory saving results in fewer out-of-memory cases, which means fewer freezes and fewer background app shutdowns.

Google is also encouraging developers to pay more attention to testing their applications in their 64-bit versions. Including for this, Google Play has introduced a pre-launch reporting feature, which is only available on 64-bit devices.

For iPhone 15, Apple will purchase the latest Sony sensors, which have no analogues on the market

For iPhone 15 Apple will purchase the latest Sony sensors

Sony will supply its state-of-the-art image sensors to Apple, which will be used in the iPhone 15 line of smartphones.

For iPhone 15, Apple will purchase the latest Sony sensors, which have no analogues on the market

The new Sony Semiconductor Solutions sensor has roughly doubled the saturation signal per pixel compared to conventional image sensors. This matches the description of the new technology that Sony talked about last year.

This is the industry’s first multi-layer CMOS sensor. While the photodiodes and pixel transistors of conventional CMOS sensors are formed in the same layer, they are in different layers in the new sensor. This allows you to expand the dynamic range, increase the photosensitivity and reduce the noise level.

Apparently, this technology has not yet found application in any of Sony’s sensors. Whether Apple will be the first to receive such sensors is unknown. It is also unclear whether they will be used in all iPhone 15 or only in older models. Given the trends of recent years, as well as all the rumors about Apple’s intention to separate younger and older iPhones more strongly, it is likely that only older models will get new sensors, or even exclusively iPhone 15 Ultra.

Telegram will receive support for paid phone numbers but it

In the latest beta version of the Telegram mobile client for Android, there was a mention of anonymous virtual phone numbers that can be bought. They will be on sale on the Fragment site, but the exact launch date has not yet been given.

Telegram will receive support for paid phone numbers, but it will be impossible to call them

These numbers will begin with the code +888, and it will be impossible to call them. They are designed specifically to work with Telegram and are used to receive confirmation codes. It is not yet reported whether there will be rooms with a different code.

The price, terms of sale or other data about the system are also not reported. However, it is possible that the scheme will work the same way as with nicknames that are already sold on Fragment.

Note that the site has already found the most expensive nickname – @news. They paid $1.76 million for it. The name of the buyer is not disclosed.

Even the cheapest Samsung Galaxy A series phone will look

Insider Evan Blass has published a high-quality rendering of one of the most affordable Samsung phones – the Galaxy A14. The front panel of the novelty with a tear-shaped screen cutout and a large “chin” looks typical for a “state employee”, but the back panel with three island modules is very reminiscent of what we will see in the Galaxy S23 flagship phones.

In 2023, Samsung is scaling up the flagship Galaxy S23 design to almost all of its phones, but some (like Ice Universe insider) are calling it a mistake. And while low-end users may be flattered by the resemblance to a flagship, it’s unlikely to work the other way around.

According to Evan Blass, the Galaxy A14 will have a large screen with a diagonal of 6.8 inches, but its resolution will be small – HD+. The phone also has a 5000 mAh battery. The front camera will have a sensor with a resolution of 13 megapixels, the resolution of the main sensor of the main camera is 50 megapixels.

Evan Blass has previously been noted for many truthful leaks. At one time, he published accurate images of the Sony Xperia 5 II, Galaxy Note20, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Tab S7, Galaxy Watch 3 and Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, Xiaomi 12 before their official premiere.
