Smartphone camera to Chromebook models!

Published

The button has been pressed for new Chromebook models with MediaTek processor. We recently reported that this company is working on a new processor to be a competitor of Snapdragon 865.

We know that ARM-based processors signed by MediaTek are preferred in some Chromebook devices. We learned that the Taiwanese team will use their experience in this field to compete with Apple’s MacBook models.

New Chromebook models with MediaTek processor are coming

According to the information received, two new processors will be produced. The first processor will be the MT8912. The other processor will take its place in the market as MT8915. MediaTek said these processors would be ambitious in digital audio with an ultra-low power level.

It is stated that users can open their own laptop with their own voice and help Google’s voice assistant. It is also said that these chipsets will be functional in HDR image processing technology and camera configurations.

Thus, it has been suggested that Chromebook manufacturers can place cameras designed for smartphones into these devices. If this project, which is possible on paper, is implemented, the cameras of the Chromebook models will be extremely capable.

It was announced that MT8195 will be produced with a 6 nm fabrication process. This hardware will contain 8 cores and will have big.LITTLE architecture. MT8195 will be accompanied by 4 ARM Cortex-A78 (high performance oriented) and 4 ARM Cortex-A55 (focused on low power consumption).

MT8192 will host 4 ARM Cortex-A76 and 4 ARM Cortex-A55. ARM Mali G57 will provide the day that both processors need on the graphics side.

Other features such as 4K HDR video decoder, PCI-Express Gen 3 and USB 3.2 Gen 1 will also increase the functionality of these processors.

Xbox App May Come to Smart TVs in the Next 12 Months: Phil Spencer

Xbox app may come to smart TVs in 2021, head of Xbox Phil Spencer shared during an interview with The Verge. Microsoft is working on bringing its game streaming service — xCloud — to mobile phones and it seems like the company already has plans on implementing something similar with smart TVs. While Spencer did not share exact details about the app, Xbox chief last month hinted that the company could be working on TV streaming sticks for its xCloud gaming services.

Phil Spencer spoke with The Verge about the new Xbox consoles and the future of gaming, and shared that an Xbox app or something on those lines will make its way to smart TVs in the next 12 months. “I think you’re going to see that in the next 12 months. I don’t think anything is going to stop us from doing that,” the report quoted Spencer as saying.

Looking back at CRT TVs that project an image on the back of a piece of glass, Spencer mentioned that TVs nowadays are like game consoles stuffed behind a screen with “an app platform and a Bluetooth stack and a streaming capability”.

According to Spencer, watching Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and other streaming services is one of the primary things that users do on their consoles. Talking about changes in technology, the head of Xbox said, “I think you’re absolutely right, there will be winners and losers and things that evolve and get combined together. What I’m saying is the amount of compute capability in my home has increased with the number of streaming signals that have come in, not decreased. I think gaming will be one of those things as well”.

Back in October, Microsoft hinted at TV streaming sticks for its xCloud gaming services. At the time, Spencer stated that there may be low-price hardware in the Xbox ecosystem, referring to devices that can just plug into a TV and run games via xCloud.

Microsoft is working on bringing a stable version of its xCloud game streaming service to mobile devices. As of now, it is available in beta on Android with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and brings over 100 games to a mobile device.

Facebook and Instagram are getting Vanish Mode in chats

Ten days ago WhatsApp got Disappearing Messages and now the other two apps with messaging abilities in the Facebook family are adopting it. Both Messenger and Instagram will get Vanish Mode which will delete messages upon closing the conversation window.

Facebook and Instagram are getting Vanish Mode in chats

Vanish Mode is activated with a swipe from the bottom of the chat. Once a message is sent, it will stay on the screen until it is turned off or the app is switched. Of course, you can always screenshot the message before it disappears.

The new feature will work both in group chats and personal conversations. While they are instantly disappearing, Facebook revealed conversations can be reported, meaning they will remain in the system for up to 14 days, so they are not instantly deleted.

Such features aren’t entirely new in the Facebook universe – there still is “Secret Conversation” for Messenger but it is rather tedious to set up and use and nobody has the time for that. Instagram also has something of a disappearing feature – currently, photos can be sent and set up to disappear once seen but nothing on messages unless you Unsend them.

Kuo: New iPhone SE unlikely to be announced in the first half of 2021

Published

By

Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is out with a new investor note today in which he says that Apple is unlikely to release a new version of the iPhone SE until the second half of 2021 at the earliest. This comes as the iPhone SE introduced in April continues to sell well and as Apple focuses on the iPhone 12 lineup.

Today’s investor note from Kuo focuses primarily on the prospects of Apple supplier Genius Electronic Optical. The company is said to be relying on a new iPhone SE during the first half of 2021 to boost its growth, but Kuo says we shouldn’t expect such an announcement.

This would seemingly mean that, if an updated version of the iPhone SE is coming at all in 2021, we shouldn’t expect to see it until the second half of the year. Kuo has previously reported that a 5.5-inch version of the new iPhone SE would come in the second half of 2021 at the earliest as well.

Kuo also says in today’s research that the iPhone 13 is on track to be released during the second half of next year. This comes after a previous report from Kuo suggested that Apple has several improvements in store for the iPhone 13 camera.
