Amazfit has introduced the GTS 4 Mini smart watch. The watch is the successor to the GTS 2 Mini and costs $120.
Despite the name, it will not work to name a small novelty. The device received a 1.65-inch AMOLED screen. Although this is far from the largest screen among smartwatches, it is also far from the smallest. In addition, the previous model was equipped with a smaller panel. The screen resolution of the novelty is 336 x 384 pixels.
Autonomy for the watch is declared at the level of 15 days, and in power saving mode it grows up to 45 days. With very active use, you can count on 8 days of work, and in the always-on GPS mode, the watch will last up to 21 hours.
The watch is based on the BioTracker 3.0 PPG sensor. Thanks to him, the device is able to accurately track heart rate and blood oxygenation. There is also a function to determine the level of stress. The watch also supports more than 120 sports modes.
You can also note water protection (5 ATM), a metal case 9.1 mm thick (the watch weighs 19 g), a built-in Alexa assistant, Bluetooth 5.2 LE and compatibility with Android 7.0 and newer or iOS 12 and newer.

Huawei has started mass production of the new Mate 50 flagship smartphones, according to a Chinese resource that cites supply chain sources.

They will receive curved screens from local (Chinese) manufacturers and the recently introduced HarmonyOS 3.0. The younger model is credited with SoC Snapdragon 778G, all the rest – Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 without 5G support. However, some sources also talk about the use of Snapdragon 888 (also in the version with an LTE modem), so not everything is clear here yet.

There are no special details about this device: it is only reported that the watch will receive a larger screen than the current model, improved optical sensors and, of course, HarmonyOS 3.0.

Are Samsung, Apple and just about every other smartwatch manufacturer lying? Companies underestimate the thickness of their watches
It seems that today the “conspiracy” of smart watch manufacturers was accidentally revealed. Of course, there is no real conspiracy, but still, many manufacturers of such devices, as it turned out, are cunning or even outright lying about some of the specifications of their products.
We are talking about weight and size indicators. The author of the channel DC Rainmaker found that Samsung very much underestimates the thickness and weight of the new Watch5. As a result, it turned out that not only Samsung does this.
But let’s start with her. According to the company’s website, the 44mm version of the Watch5 is supposed to be 9.8mm thick and weigh 33.5g. In fact, the watch weighs 55g and the case is 13mm thick! The Watch5 Pro is supposedly 10.5 mm thick, but in fact it is almost 50% larger (15.1 mm)!
Interestingly, if you remove the strap, then the mass of the watch itself will turn out to be exactly the same as it is indicated on the site. That is, we can say that in this case, Samsung is not lying. Moreover, the site has a postscript stating that the mass does not take into account the strap, but why would anyone need a mass of watches without a strap? In addition, such a focus will no longer work with the thickness – it is simply indicated incorrectly.
But the highlight is that the author decided to check the watches of other brands, and it turned out that this is the norm. In particular, Apple, Garmin and Polar also underestimate the thickness of their watches, which seems to be the norm. Although there are exceptions: Fitbit and Wahoo indicate the parameters correctly. It seems that companies just measure the thickness each in their own way. For example, Samsung apparently measures only the thickness of the side edge, while Apple and Garmin do not take into account the lower protrusion with sensors. A similar situation has long been the norm in the car market: automakers measure the clearance as they want, and it very rarely corresponds to the actual minimum distance from the lowest point of the car (excluding wheels) to the road.
