Software developer Gustave Mons shared information on social networks about how he installed the Windows 11 operating system on a Microsoft Surface Duo smartphone.
After months of trying, Gustave Mons successfully ran Windows 11 on this device. And many features work on the Surface Duo, including the ability to surf the web through the Microsoft Edge browser.
Of course, as often happens in such cases, the operating system does not work perfectly. Surface Duo does not currently support touch in Windows 11, so it can only be controlled using a mouse.
Gustave Mons added that currently only Windows 11 can be installed on the original Surface Duo, while the Surface Duo 2 is not yet supported.
Surface Duo was released in the second half of 2020. It is the first dual-screen mobile phone in the Microsoft Surface series to come preloaded with Android 10. It comes with two 5.6-inch AMOLED screens, each with a resolution of 1800 x 1350 pixels. Surface Duo is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, 6 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of flash memory, and a 3577 mAh battery.
No more Exynos SoCs in Samsung’s flagship smartphones for at least two years. The company created a “dream team” to develop a new SoC
Rumors have again appeared on the Web that Samsung may abandon its own top Exynos SoCs at least for a while. But new data reveals this question differently.
According to the source, the company has created a “dream team” called Deam Platform One Team, which will develop an entirely new platform. Recall that earlier Samsung has already said that it is going to concentrate on a new approach and create SoC Exynos, designed exclusively for its own smartphones, as Apple is doing now.
It is this SoC that the new team will create. And, since this is a very complicated and long process, we will not see top Exynos platforms for the next two years. That is, the flagship Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S24 lines will rely only on Qualcomm solutions. By the way, it is not a fact that the new product will retain the Exynos brand at all.
The new team, which includes about 1000 people, has a task – to bring a new SoC to the market in 2025. That is, the devices of the Galaxy S25 line should receive it.
Given the timing, of course, there is no data on the new SoC and it is unlikely that they will appear in the near future.
“Born to accelerate the popularization of 5G.” Xiaomi introduced a cheap smartphone Redmi Note 11 SE with 90 Hz, 5000 mAh and 48 MP
The head of Xiaomi, Lei Jun, officially announced the company’s most affordable smartphone with support for fifth-generation networks, which was called the Redmi Note 11 SE.
“Born to accelerate the popularization of 5G,” is how the company leader describes this device. The Redmi Note 11 SE is priced at just $150.
Redmi Note 11 SE received a 6.5-inch FullHD + display with support for a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a hole for the front camera in the central upper part of the screen. It is based on a MediTek Dimensity 700 single-chip system with a 5G modem.
The amount of flash memory is 128 GB, the battery capacity is 5000 mAh, the main image sensor has a resolution of 48 megapixels.
Even more like the iPhone: Apple Watch Series 8 showed from all sides in high-quality images
Apple is expected to launch three smartwatch models this fall, including the Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch SE, and the first rugged watch. This post provides high-quality renderings of the Apple Watch Series 8 based on leaks and available information.
The biggest difference compared to the Apple Watch Series 7 is that the screen protector is completely flat. This makes the watch case look more like an iPhone case. You can also see that the screen frame has become even smaller. It is quite possible that the Apple Watch Series 8 will be the watch with the highest effective display area.
Enlarged slots for the speaker are visible on the left side of the case, the usual clock controls are located on the right side. The watch will be able to measure heart rate and blood oxygen saturation. As for measuring temperature, blood sugar and blood pressure, Apple is working on these features, but they are unlikely to appear this year.
According to rumors, the presentation of the Apple Watch Series 8 will take place in September this year.
Source: iPhone 14 will get a front camera with autofocus
According to South Korean sources, one of the major improvements in the iPhone 14 line of smartphones, which is expected to be released in September, will be the front camera. Apple considers LG Innotek as a supplier of such high-end modules. In this case, for the first time, the supplier of the front cameras for the iPhone will be a Korean company, and not the unnamed Chinese manufacturers, as before. According to the source, Apple has reconsidered the attitude to the front cameras of its smartphones as inexpensive components, and now these will be more advanced solutions.
Initially, Apple planned to start installing LG Innotek modules only in the iPhone 15, but then moved the deadlines, so the iPhone 14 will already have a high-quality front camera this fall. It is reported that the new module will be three times more expensive than the previous model, but the owners of the next generation iPhone will be able to use autofocus for selfies. A number of other improvements are also expected, thanks to which the front camera of the new iPhones will come close to the main one in terms of its capabilities. According to rumors, LG Innotek has already begun preparations for mass production of front cameras for the iPhone 14.
