We will also talk about the nuances of the technical equipment of the OnePlus 8 smartphone, the announcement of which is scheduled for the second quarter of next year. We will also inform you about the concept of an electric car from Audi, the renderings of which have already appeared on the network.
Details of an interesting device from Samsung have become known
The Samsung Galaxy S11 gadget has not yet been shown to the general public, but information about some of its nuances has already appeared on the network.
One of the test equipment manufacturers, Mecatech Systems, announced that the flagship of the South Korean manufacturer will soon be tested. His camera will be tested. All devices, the deliveries of which should begin soon, are subjected to such procedures. These are the final challenges.
It is already known that the device will receive a main camera module, consisting of four sensors. Chief among them - Samsung ISOCELL, has a resolution of 100 megapixels.
Also, the features of this device include the presence of a fivefold optical zoom and an infrared spectrometer. This device will definitely equip the Galaxy S11. Among its capabilities, it is worth highlighting the determination of the quality of products and the identification of problems with the user's skin.
Early leaks suggest that the gadget will receive an Infinity-O display with a small hole for a selfie camera. It is expected to be even smaller than the S10.
They also claim that the new product will be equipped with a Snapdragon 865 processor with 12 GB of RAM. Several product configurations are expected. Insiders predict the presence of the MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) module, which allows you to pay via Samsung Pay without NFC.
The presentation of the novelty is scheduled for February 18 next year. Nothing is clear about the pricing yet.
Mi Band 5 will receive a new feature
This summer, the popular Mi Band 4 fitness tracker began selling. This is one of the most popular wearable gadgets. In the months that have passed since the presentation, the manufacturer has released a number of device software updates, and it has received several new accessories.
However, until now, the developers have not equipped any of the product modifications with the now popular NFC module for making contactless payments. It is possible that Xiaomi Mi Band 5 will receive this functionality.
Now users cannot use the bracelet to pay for their purchases, although many express such wishes. The introduction of the NFC system will allow contactless payments for goods and services not only in China, where bracelets are popular, but also in many other regions of the world.
Now it is not entirely clear what this module will be able to support, with what systems it will be able to work. At this time, for example, Google Pay only works with smart devices running Google's Wear OS. This does not exclude the option of drawing up a cooperation agreement between Xiaomi and Google.
It is expected that the Mi Band 5 will be presented in the second quarter of 2020. Huami will take part in the development of the gadget.
OnePlus 8 images appeared online before the announcement of the device
The sales of the junior model have not yet begun, and images of the OnePlus 8 smartphone have already appeared on the network, the announcement of which will not take place soon. They were posted by well-known insiders OnLeaks and CashKaro, who have previously repeatedly talked about future updates and their information has always been confirmed.
The photos show that the OnePlus 8 is equipped with a small hole for the front camera. Moreover, it has a small size and is not tear-shaped like in the OnePlus 7T. It also lacks a slide-out mechanism like the OnePlus 7 Pro.
Insiders believe that the device has received a controversial design that will divide fans of the brand into two camps. The former will like the display without cutouts, while the latter will regret the lack of a slide-out camera form factor.
The renders show that the device has a display measuring about 6.5 inches. It will have curved edges. It is also clear that the main camera module has three sensors here. It is possible that they are using the same ones installed on the OnePlus 7T, but with minor updates.
It is reported that the device has the following geometric parameters: 160.2 x 72.9 x 8.1 mm. It is planned to equip it with wireless charging. The product will be released in the second quarter of 2020.
Audi develops electric car
An unknown source posted on the Internet several pictures of an Audi electric car built on the new PPE (Premium Platform Electric) platform. This is the next generation platform.
Porsche took part in its development. It is intended for the production of electric models of various segments: from crossovers to coupes.
The quality of the published images is not very good, but you can see a lot of interesting things. In terms of size and shape, the future novelty is similar to the A5 Sportback. Its electric motor, as well as the equivalent internal combustion engine, will be installed longitudinally. It will be located at the rear of the vehicle, driven to the nearest axle.
It is possible that four-wheel drive modifications will appear, equipped with another engine in the front of the car. There is information that the battery capacity will be enough for 483 km of run without recharging.
These electric vehicles are expected to start selling early next year.
