Insider # 8.10: Apple's smart ring; 5G Nokia smartphone; OnePlus 8 Pro; NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro


The insider data block, as usual, consists of a series of information. The first concerns Apple's development of a smart ring to control its other products. There is also information about the first 5G smartphone Nokia and the OnePlus 8 Pro gadget. We will also discuss the data on the specifications for the yet to be announced NVIDIA SHIELD TV Pro.

Apple's Smartphone Control Device

It became obvious that the Yabloko people are working on a new product. This was confirmed by the fact that the company was granted a new patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

From the name of the document, you can accurately classify the device. It is a wearable gadget. The patent describes the technology used in its creation. It includes a touchscreen, processor, rechargeable power supply and wireless transceiver.

With the help of a ring put on a finger, you can control other products of the company. They can be iPhone or iPad. It uses gestures, taps, or voice commands.

The ring is called Apple Ring. Based on the above, it's easy to see that it won't be a standalone product.


The documents contain explanations of the company. It says this product will minimize the use of sensor products that are sometimes cumbersome, inconvenient and ineffective in defining tasks.

An example of this is the experience of working on an iPhone or iPad. After a while, your hands will simply get tired. The light emitted by their screens can be unpleasant or inappropriate in some social media. In such cases, the ring will help best. With its help, the user will be able to discreetly, efficiently and securely interact with the device in use.

Apple is not a pioneer in this segment. Prior to that, Amazon introduced the Echo Loop, a ring equipped with the Alexa virtual assistant. Its functionality is comparable to that of a smart speaker.


The Echo Loop is also designed to be worn on the index finger. When connected, it connects to the user's mobile device. The ring is currently priced at $ 129.99 US but is forecast to rise to $ 179.99

Experts believe that if Apple plans to use its new design as an additional accessory to glasses, then Apple Ring will be announced in the first quarter of next year. Otherwise, the product will not be released until autumn 2020.

Insiders reveal the characteristics of the first Nokia with support for fifth generation networks

First, the first renderings of a 5G Nokia smartphone were posted online, and then insiders published the technical data of the device.

Network sources claim that the Nokia 8.2 5G is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 735 processor. It has a built-in 5G modem and an advanced AI computing unit. Several configurations of the novelty are provided: 4/64, 6/128 and 8/256 GB.

Before that, there was information indicating that the smartphone was equipped with a retractable selfie module. It is stated that the rear camera of the device consists of four sensors, where the main one has a resolution of 64 megapixels.


This gadget is expected to be announced next February at MWC 2020. It will cost at least $ 500 USA.

OnePlus product renders appeared on the web

Two weeks ago the OnePlus 7T Pro was announced. Despite the fact that little time has passed since then, the OnLeaks insider has published high-quality images of the OnePlus 8 Pro model. It is easy to evaluate its design from them.


The external data of the product are clearly different from the predecessor.

Now it is clear that this smartphone will receive a main camera with four sensors. Three of them will be placed vertically, and the ToF module will be taken out to the side. A flash will be placed next to it.

The selfie camera does not have a retractable mechanism. It was placed in the upper left corner of the front panel.


It is known that the 6.65-inch display of the smartphone received a refresh rate equal to 90 Hz. With a case thickness of 10.8 mm, it has the following dimensions: 165.3 x 74.4 x 8.8 mm.

The gadget power button is located on its right side, and the volume rocker is on the left. There is a USB Type-C port at the bottom and a microphone hole at the top.

Detailed specifications of the device are unknown. It is supposed to be equipped with a 5G modem. When the gadget is announced and how much it will cost has not yet been announced.
