Rumors of similar developments by Apple appeared several years ago, but next year they may finally be realized. At least the source says that Apple’s partners have already begun work on the production of the corresponding sensors.

The work on non-invasive blood glucose testing has been going on for a very long time, and the advent of such a consumer device will revolutionize the market. At the beginning of this year, the Japanese startup Quantum Operation at CES 2021 presented a similar device in the form of a watch, however, firstly, then there were reservations about the accuracy of measurements, and secondly, the product, apparently, has not yet appeared on the market. Plus, the popularity of Apple in general, and its smartwatches in particular, could make the technology far more widespread.

Tomorrow Xiaomi will officially unveil the Redmi Note 11 smartphones, but the base model of the line, designated with catalog number 21091116AC, has already appeared in the Geekbench benchmark today. Test results: 592 points in single-threaded and 1712 points in multi-threaded. The performance is exactly half that of the current flagships on Snapdragon 888, although the creators believe that the consumer properties of Redmi Note 11 are close to the flagships of the Redmi K40 series.

However, this is the performance of the base Redmi Note 11, and Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro + will be slightly faster, since they are based on SoC Dimensity 920.
