OPPO registered names immediately for 13 smartphones
Earlier this year, OPPO announced the closure of the flagship R line, but presented several Reno devices at once and continued the popular Find series. The company also received certification documents for Find Y devices, which may be the first to receive a front camera hidden under the display matrix.
Now it became known about work on 13 new OPPO Z smartphones. Trade names were obtained on 2Z, 3Z, 4Z, 5Z, 6Z, 7Z, 8Z, 9Z, 10Z, 20Z, 30Z, 40Z and 50Z. All names belong to category 9: “mobile phones, smartphones, mobile software, headsets, battery chargers”.
Technical details of new products are not reported. In the near future, we expect the availability of OPPO Reno Ace. He will get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus, a 6.6-inch Full HD + screen, a 4000 mAh battery with fast charging and 12 GB of RAM.
Weibo accidentally revealed the existence of an 8K TV from Xiaomi
September 12, on the eve of the Mid-Autumn Festival in China, actor Huang Qanqan came to the Xiaomi Mi TV development office with gifts for employees and took some general photos. The pictures were published on the official Weibo account and did not attract attention with something outstanding, but sharp-sighted visitors to the social network noticed on the monitor of one of the employees a mention of 8K resolution.
The shot shows the office of the Mi TV division, and many regarded it as a hint at the appearance of a Xiaomi TV with a resolution of 8K. The current Xiaomi Mi TV shows in 4K.
The gadget can be presented on September 17 in India.
Google Play Pass already advertised on Twitter
Google Play Pass - a monthly subscription to all premium games in the Google Play app store - is already being advertised in the official service account on Twitter. It is claimed that she will debut very soon. With such a subscription, users get access to games without ads and in-app purchases.
The expected cost of a family subscription is $ 4.99. An obvious competitor will be Apple Arcade.
Kospet Prime - Android watch with NFC and a huge battery
Apple is the obvious leader in the watch market in the world, occupying 50% of the market. Apple Watch Series 5 presented on Tuesday will only help strengthen the position. On the Android market, the situation is much more complicated, and far from always, users can choose a decent accessory. The Kospet Prime smartwatch will be on sale the other day. The novelty compares favorably with all competitors in several details.
Kospet Prime will receive NFC for fast synchronization with a smartphone and wireless payment for goods and services in stores. Unlike many smartwatches, the Kospet Prime has a 1260 mAh battery with wireless charging capability. According to official information, the watch works up to three days in active mode or up to seven days in standby mode. The watch is equipped with two 8 megapixel cameras to take photos and videos. In addition, it supports unlocking the system using face recognition.
The front panel is a large 1.6-inch AMOLED display. The processor model is unknown but paired with it 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory are installed. How much such a watch will cost is unknown.
Apple continues to work on a flexible smartphone
Since 2011, the apple company has been working on a smartphone with a flexible or folding case. The first rumors about him appeared on the network in 2013, and the other day on the network appeared patents marked with 2017. There are five documents in one way or another describing such a device.
The new patent mentions several important elements at once: a flexible display, a control circuit, a hinge, a compression and force sensor, and an application switching circuit for compressing the case. In other words, Apple can test new ways to interact with the interface. However, until the end of the development process, the company's plans may change repeatedly. According to insiders, it is not worth waiting for a flexible iPhone until 2020 or 2021.
