In the latest March inside story, we will first tell you about the test results of the yet unannounced Xiaomi Mi 10T smartphone and the features of the HONOR 30S equipment. Then we will find out new data about the budget version of the Apple Watch smartwatch. At the end of the review, let's talk about the gadget of the Korean manufacturer Samsung.
The Xiaomi device, according to the results of testing in the benchmark, showed low performance
The well-known insider Mukul Sharma posted on the Internet the test results of the Xiaomi Mi 10T smartphone, the release of which has not yet taken place. Interesting not only the test result in Geekbench, but also the data on the technical stuffing of the device.
A network informant posted a screenshot, according to which it is easy to understand that the device based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 mobile platform (this is a fairly ancient chipset, presented three years ago) scored 334 and 1403 points in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.
The device was running Android 9 Pie operating system.
Interestingly, the network whistleblower expressed doubts about the reliability of this information. He stated that the name of the device is easy to edit. To do this, just change its data in the results window.
Previously, rumors circulated that this smartphone would become the global version of the Redmi K30. The latter is powered by a Snapdragon 730G processor.
Data on the specifications of the Xiaomi Mi 10T and the timing of its release to the market was not provided.
HONOR 30S will receive a 30-watt charger
The HUAWEI P40 line of smartphones has recently been announced. The HONOR 30S device, built on the HiSilicon Kirin 820 5G platform, will be released soon. This is the first product on this base.
Last week several leaks regarding this device appeared on the network. Those wishing to get acquainted with the capabilities of its main camera and body colors.
The manufacturer has now posted a teaser that reveals an important feature of the product.
It will be equipped with a 40W charger.
Prior to this, some features of the technical filling became public. The device will be equipped with a Full HD + display and an embedded front camera, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, as well as Android 10 out of the box.
Prior to that, information was published on the test results in a synthetic benchmark of the HiSilicon Kirin 820 5G processor. It turned out to be more productive than Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G and Kirin 980.
It is also known that the HONOR 30S will receive a main camera, in which the main sensor will have a resolution of 64 megapixels. They also predict the presence of 3x optical zoom, improved ISP and noise reduction technology.
Inexpensive version of Apple smartwatch will be equipped with a plastic case
Apple is not committed to creating cheap products. One of her bestsellers, the Watch Series 5, is made from titanium and ceramic. However, the latest events in the world (the coronavirus pandemic) and the fall in purchasing power are forcing Yabloko to look for new approaches.
Therefore, budget versions of her smart watches will receive the same filling as more expensive modifications, but plastic with ceramic fibers is used in the production of their cases. This will save money and even expand the sales market for this gadget.
Proof of such a move by US developers is the presence of a patent, which was recently published by the US USPTO. Apple engineers say they've found the right material to work well with Apple Watch cases. First of all, this is connected with ensuring the desired level of operation of the built-in antennas.
If you use metal, the watch will be durable, but with a high degree of electromagnetic shielding. Plastic cases are better in this respect, but they wear out faster.
Therefore (according to Apple experts) it will be correct to add ceramics to the plastic, which increases the strength characteristics and has a low thermal conductivity. It also has good insulation capabilities.
It is now clear that a low-cost version of the Apple Watch will appear, but it is not yet known when.
Galaxy Watch Active 2 won't get promised functionality yet
In September last year, the Korean electronics developer Samsung showed a new modification of the Galaxy Watch Active2 smartwatch.
The gadget has got a good filling. Among its equipment were sensors capable of recording an electrocardiogram. The developers promised that by the end of the first quarter of this year they will make this option available.
However, the terms have expired, but the functionality of smartwatch users remains unavailable. Samsung representatives in this regard explained that their specialists continue to work on the ECG recording function. They are not yet sure about the stability of this functionality. Additional time is required to complete work and debug.
When the Galaxy Watch Active2 will start recording ECGs, it's not clear. The company did not announce this date. The main feature of this program is the ability to detect irregular rhythm of the user's heart, which can threaten his life.
The first smartwatches with such capabilities were Apple Watch Series 4 and 5.
