Apple is preparing a response Hongmeng OS
Apple may introduce a new operating system for the SiriOS smart home at the WWDC 2020 conference, the IT Home website reports, citing a statement from the analyst firm Mangrove Capital Partner.
Presumably, the upcoming operating system will accelerate the process of integration of Apple voice technologies into its ecosystem — the new OS will be integrated into a smart column HomePod, competing with similar products of Google and Amazon.
The key features of SiriOS are expected to be artificial intelligence algorithms and machine learning functions. Apple has not commented on the leak.
New iPhones will receive variable refresh rate displays
A well-known insider Ice Universe claims that Apple is considering using the display with an increased refresh rate up to 120 Hz and the ability to switch the display mode (60/120 Hz) in new smartphones.
According to the source, the Corporation is already negotiating with Samsung and LG — the main suppliers of displays for Apple products. Modern chipsets for gaming smartphones and models for the flagship lines support the refresh rate of displays up to 120 Hz, so it is possible that the new iPhone will really get this matrix upgrade.
HONOR 9X will be equipped with "eSports" liquid cooling system
Details about the filling of the smartphone HONOR 9X appear on the network more often. According to the website IT Home, the new product will be equipped with an advanced liquid cooling system that will cope with the removal of heat from the chipset even in long gaming sessions.
According to previous leaks, the HONOR 9X will get a 48mp main camera sensor with 1/2 inch sensor size and support for night mode shooting without a flash. The gadget based on the mobile platform Kirin 810 will be announced on July 23 in China.
OPPO has patented a smartwatch with a folding display
Unlike many smartphone manufacturers, OPPO has never released a smartwatch before. According to the publication of LetsGoDigital, it is possible that the company will finally expand the range of smart devices in this direction.
It is reported that OPPO developed a new product in 2015, but it never went on sale. A new patent application was filed with the world intellectual property organization last year, but the information has been widely publicized only now.
According to the description, the wearable electronic device has an ordinary bracelet and a square display, which can be quickly expanded by increasing its diagonal. The unused portion of the screen is automatically turned off to save battery power. When minimized, the display is stored in the body of the gadget.
Release date, price and detailed specifications of the unusual device are not announced. Recently, the network has news that IBM has registered a patent for a similar model of smartwatches in 2016.
