Ten days after the Windows 11 distribution was leaked to the Web, Microsoft officially unveiled the new operating system. At first, Windows 10 2H21 was expected instead, but the company felt that the volume of innovations and changes, especially those affecting the user interface, was so great that it was time to announce a new serial version of Windows. True, today only the announcement took place, and the custom version is promised only for the season of the autumn-winter holidays. That is, around the end of November.
After studying the distribution of Windows 11 merged into the Network, it became clear that the interface of the new OS is very similar to the interface of Windows 10X, which has been developed over several years – a version of Windows with a simplified user interface for laptops and tablets. As it turns out, this interface materialized in Windows 11.
Perhaps the most important innovation that immediately catches your eye is the Start menu, which has moved closer to the center of the taskbar. Because of this, Windows 11 began to be compared to macOS and its Dock. As Microsoft Director of Product Panos Panay, who introduced Windows 11, said, the general idea behind the new design was to make Windows 11 users feel “Incredible tranquility”… It turned out or not – the users themselves will decide in November, but even before that, beta versions will clearly appear on the Web, on which it will be possible to try out all the innovations of Windows 11. Including faster loading of the operating system, faster operation of all browsers (and not only branded Edge), and even faster installation of updates.
Snap Layouts make it easier to structure windows on screen
In addition to the moved closer to the center of the Start menu, rounded windows, buttons and menus, white and dark skins, which make extensive use of translucency and shadows, the new interface received a feature called Snap Layouts: when you hover over the icon in the upper right corner, Minimize / Expand a widget appears that allows you to dock the window in a certain way. Everything is done automatically, you no longer need to drag and drop windows and resize them manually. This is especially useful when using multiple monitors.
Microsoft Teams is part of Windows 11
Another innovation that’s impossible to miss: the Teams video conferencing app is integrated into Windows. The company recently released a standalone custom version of Teams, which appears to be part of Windows 11. In other words, Teams in Windows 11 is becoming FaceTime.
This is how widgets look in Windows 11
“Windows Widgets is a new, personalized AI-powered feed that delivers selected content to you.”– said Panos Panay during the presentation. Widgets are really what differentiates Windows 11 from Windows 10, especially after the live tiles disappeared from the latter.
Comparison of graphics in the game SDR and Auto HDR
Microsoft says Windows 11 is the best OS for gamers. The latter should appreciate not only the increased speed of the operating system itself, but also the introduction of Auto HDR technology borrowed from the Xbox. It works in the new OS by default. Another borrowing from the Xbox is the Direct Storage API, due to which games should load faster. Finally, the third innovation is the built-in Xbox Game Pass subscription in the Xbox app.
This is how the TikTok Android app looks like on Windows 11
Windows 11 integrates support for Amazon Appstore
At the very end of his speech on Windows 11, Panos Panay focused on the built-in support for Android applications and demonstrated the work of one of them – TikTok. Integration is done through the Amazon Appstore.
Huawei introduced a 65-inch 4K tablet with Windows and Android preinstalled
Huawei has introduced a large 65-inch tablet with legs in China – a novelty called the IdeaHub Board 2 is designed for use in the office. It can be used as an interactive screen when demonstrating a presentation, conducting seminars, etc.
The device is equipped with a 4K screen. Naturally, touch. There is also a powerful built-in audio system. The hardware platform is based on a 4-core processor, the volumes of operational and built-in flash memory are 4 and 32 GB. Interestingly, two operating systems are provided here at once – Android 9 and Windows 10, and you can switch between them at the touch of a button.
What’s more, the device gives you access to the branded IdeaHub app store, which has over 100 apps tailored to fit on such a large display.
IdeaHub Board 2 supports connecting peripherals (mouse or webcam), for which there are USB-C and USB-A ports. The dimensions of the device are 1485 x 92 x 893 mm and the price is $1535.
50-inch, 4K, 24W sound, 8GB flash Android TV 10, inexpensive. OnePlus is preparing a budget TV Y1S Pro 50 “
OnePlus has announced the imminent expansion of its Y1S Pro series TV range, with a 43-inch model already in the lineup, and a 50-inch model will join it on June 27.
At the moment, the retail price of the 43-inch Y1S Pro is $ 375, the 50-inch model will not be much more expensive, so given the screen size and characteristics, the new product can be written down in budget models.
The parameters of the novelty have been announced, and they exactly correspond to the younger model: there will be a 4K panel with 10-bit color representation, support for MEMC and HDR10 / HDR10 +, a 24-watt audio system with Dolby Audio support, a MediaTek MT9216 single-chip system connected to 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of built-in flash memory, Android TV 10 OS with support for OnePlus Connect 2.0 technology (it allows you to broadcast a picture from OnePlus smartphones to a TV screen). There will also be support for Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac, two HDMI ports and two USB 2.0.
60 MP plus 50 MP, 4500 mAh, 100 W, slim body and branded Android replacement. All specifications and live photos of Huawei nova 10 Pro ten days before the announcement
We have already seen Huawei nova 10 and nova 10 Pro smartphones both on official renders and on unofficial ones, and now live photos of nova 10 Pro have been published on the Web. At the same time, a complete list of features for the nova 10 and nova 10 Pro was released. At the same time, we note that the official premiere of smartphones will take place only on July 4.
I must say that in live photos, the main camera block looks more massive than in renders, but in general the design is typical for Huawei.
The platform – fortunately or unfortunately – is also typical of Huawei and Honor smartphones: it’s Snapdragon 778G 4G. Both models will be presented in two versions – 8/128 and 8/256 GB. You should not count on the presence of 12 GB of RAM in these devices.
nova 10 Pro will receive a 6.67-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2652 x 1200 pixels and a frame rate of 120 Hz. The display of the younger model corresponds in size and frame rate, but its resolution is slightly lower – 2400 x 1080 pixels.
The screen of the nova 10 Pro has a stretched oval notch that will house two sensors: the main one with a 60-megapixel sensor and an ultra-wide angle lens and an additional 8-megapixel one with a portrait lens. The embedded front camera in nova 10 has a familiar look, since it has only one module – with a 60-megapixel sensor.
The main camera in these models is represented by three modules: the main one with a 50-megapixel sensor with an RYYB pixel layout and two additional ones – an 8-megapixel one with an ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel one for analyzing the depth of the scene. Apparently, there will be no optical stabilization system.
The battery capacity of Huawei nova 10 Pro is 4500 mAh, the device will support 100 W charging. nova 10 will receive a 4000 mAh battery with support for 66 W fast charging. The thickness and weight of the nova 10 Pro is 7.88 mm and 191 grams, while the nova 10 is more compact and lighter at 6.88 mm and 168 grams. Both models will run HarmonyOS 2.0.1.
