Face ID on iPhone 11 will work from different angles
One of the problems with facial recognition systems like Face ID is the need to hold the smartphone more or less directly in front of the face for the recognition to be successful. This causes some inconvenience to users, as it becomes much more difficult to unlock the system than with a simple fingerprint scanner. Good news is waiting for us with the iPhone 11. Apple intends to make changes to the scanner so that Face ID can recognize the owner in any position of the smartphone.
iPhone 11 will be released when the smartphone is on the table, mounted in a holder on the car dashboard, etc. According to rumors, the advanced version of Face ID will get an amplified source of IR radiation to kill the interference and improve the accuracy of the work.
In 2021, the iPhone can get Face ID and Touch ID at the same time for the first time.
Hyundai will show the concept of electric cars in retro style
On September 10, the IAA Automobile Exhibition and Salon will begin in Frankfurt am Main, at which automakers will show the latest developments. For example, Hyundai Motor has hinted that it will bring the concept of the Hyundai 45 electric car to Germany.
In the features of the car, it is not difficult to discern a reference to the first models of cars of the brand of the 70s. There are no details about the Hyundai 45, but we will follow the news from the IAA 2019 with interest.
Redmi CEO proves that cameras with a telephoto lens are not needed
Redmi Note 8 will be the first smartphone with a 64-megapixel camera on the back. The head of Redmi, Lu Weibing, published several details about the camera, which, in his opinion, is able to reverse the current trend with an increase in the number of photo modules in mobile devices.
In his arguments, he used simple mathematics: the resolution of photos taken on a 64-megapixel camera is 9248х6936 pixels, 34% more than at the most advanced camera in the first half of 2019 with 48 MP. The same picture can be obtained from six separate images with a resolution of 3082х3468 pixels each. This means that when the image is closer, high image detail will remain — and an additional telephoto camera will not be needed.
Of course, this reasoning is true only with a big caveat and is unlikely to find practical application, since it is impossible to achieve a dramatic increase in the quality of the photo with an increase in camera resolution.
Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro will debut in three versions depending on the amount of memory, in each case three different colors will be available. Smartphones will be built on the basis of the Helio G90T chipset, presented at the end of last month. The eight-core processor of new products (two ARM Cortex-A76 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores) will receive a clock frequency of 2.05 GHz and a Mali-G76 3EEMC4 graphics accelerator with support for the HDR10 standard.
