The first November Insider will focus on Motorola's foldable smartphone. Let's also talk about the technical equipment of the new generation of Xiaomi TVs. In the next block, we will acquaint readers with the capabilities of the Galaxy S11e. At the end of the review, we will inform you about the reasons for the postponement of the start of production of the Apple laptop.
Motorola is developing a foldable smartphone that is the 2004 version of the Razr
The network has information confirming the assumptions of specialists. They relate to a Motorola foldable product. The fact is that its design has a lot in common with the external features of the 2004 Razr brand.
At almost the same time, well-known insider Evan Blass and Mobielkeopen published a number of images of the novelty online.
Some of them show that the device is equipped with two displays. The smaller one, located on the back of the device, displays notifications when the smartphone is folded. You can also make out the camera, the large hinge and the massive chin.
When closed, the model is very similar to a gadget of the Razr family of 2004.
The novelty is compact and takes up minimal space in the user's pocket.
At this time, it is known about three bending machines ready for production. These are Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X and Royole FlexPai. It is clear that the technology used by Motorola is different from everyone else.
This is obvious. Flexible competitor devices expand when unfolded to become tablets.
The novelty under review from Motorola is an ordinary smartphone unfolded. When folded in half, it becomes compact, which is intended as its main feature.
This approach helps to protect the main display of the device from damage. This will eliminate the need for protective covers and covers for the case.
All this is well conceived by the developers, since according to rumors, the new device will cost up to $ 1,500. It is expected to be presented on November 13 during one of the company's events.
The first images of the Xiaomi Mi TV 5 and some of its technical data have appeared
On November 5th, Xiaomi will hold another event where its new products will be presented. It is expected that among other products, the company will show the next generation TV Xiaomi Mi TV 5.
The other day on the network appeared the first "live" photos of the device and information about some of its technical data.
From them it can be understood that the device will receive thin frames and a case of minimal thickness. Its corners are slightly rounded, which gives the appearance of originality. To install the gadget on a horizontal surface, use V-shaped legs.
All the electronic stuffing of the device is located in its lower part, so it turned out to be more massive. The hardware here is based on the T972 chipset platform with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of ROM. The TV supports HDR10 +, which was officially announced by the manufacturer.
Galaxy S11e will get an improved display
According to insiders, the budget smartphone Samsung Galaxy S11e will be equipped with an improved screen. Its main advantage will be an increase in the refresh rate to 120 Hz. This will be facilitated by the presence of an advanced Exynos 990 processor.
The manufacturer claims that the introduction of such a high-frequency matrix will increase the quotes of an inexpensive device in relation to the flagships of Google and OnePlus.
Most likely, it will be so. Most manufacturers use matrices with a resolution of 90 Hz in their devices. Experts believe that this will positively affect the demand for new items, but reduce its autonomy. An advanced display will require more power to operate.
Samsung has confirmed the specifications and design of the Galaxy S11e. It will be announced next February.
New MacBook Pro will be shown next year
It became known that the premiere of the new MacBook Pro (2019) from Apple will not take place this year. Prior to this, a number of media outlets announced an imminent announcement of the device, but their information was not confirmed. In his report to TF International Securities and Macrumors, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo confirmed that the presentation of the MacBook Pro has been postponed to 2020. Most likely, it will take place during WWDC 2020, starting in June.
This EA also pointed out the main reason for the delay. It lies in the fact that the developers decided to return to the proven scissor keyboard design scheme. It will be supplied to Apple by the Taiwanese company Wistron.
The iPhone is currently being assembled at its facilities.
The Americans have upgraded this keyboard by abandoning the butterfly keyboard. The company had good reasons for this. Recently, the number of complaints about the work of the latter has increased. Users pointed to frequent breakdowns of the accessory, so an urgent response was needed.
It became known that all MacBook Pro, MacBook, Air iMac and Mac Pro will receive a keyboard of a new type. This will happen within the next year.
