In this insider, we first talk about another leak regarding the yet to be announced Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G. Then we will discuss the capabilities of the available version of the Apple Watch. At the end of the article, we will find out the capabilities of another foldable Samsung device.
Insiders found an image of two Pixel smartphones on the Internet
One of the network informants posted a photo of the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G smartphones on the Internet.
It is assumed that these devices will be shown at the beginning or in the middle of autumn this year. Over the past few months, rumors about a new line of Google devices have been actively circulating on the network. The photo shows the rear panels of the devices. They clearly show camera blocks and fingerprint scanners.
In addition to the images, the data source provided possible specifications for the devices not yet announced. He claims the Pixel 5 will get a 4,000mAh battery, Snapdragon 765G processor with 8GB of RAM. He is also entitled to a screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The front camera here will have 8 megapixels in its asset, the main sensor of the main one - 12.2 megapixels. An ultra-wide-angle sensor will also be installed here.
The Pixel 4a 5G has the same specs. Only its battery has a capacity of 3800 mAh, and the display will be 60 Hz.
The back panels of both smartphones will begin to be made of plastic. Prior to this, glass was used in the production of this part.
Early leaks revealed that Google may ditch the Pixel 4's telephoto lens in favor of an ultra-wide-angle camera. One of the insiders suggested that such a lens will receive a resolution of 16 megapixels. If so, then such a decision by the engineers of the American manufacturer looks strange. Now all the developers in the flagships are installing a telephoto lens in addition to the wide-angle sensor.
Apple will launch an affordable Watch SE in early 2021
Apple Watch is considered the best watch today. However, not everyone can afford to buy them.
In this regard, marketers of the American manufacturer decided to follow the path previously tested on their smartphones (iPhone SE (2020). We are talking about the possible appearance of the Apple Watch SE smart watch.
Twitter account owner Komiya says the event will take place early next year. This statement was supported on the network by the famous tech blogger John Prosser.
Experts believe that the novelty will be designed to replace the currently available Apple Watch Series 3. The gadget is likely to receive the same design, but its equipment will be more advanced. It is expected to have a number of features that are used in the Apple Watch Series 6.
The latest watch model from "Yabloko" will be released along with the new line of smartphones iPhone 12. At the moment it is known that the announcement of this series is delayed for at least several weeks. Accordingly, the wearable gadget will also be released with a delay.
Experts believe that the premium version of the novelty will not look much different from the previous models. However, it is prophesied that it has a number of new functions. There will be an S6 chip, support for sleep tracking, a pulse oximeter to monitor blood oxygen saturation, a blood pressure sensor, and a function to detect rare mental health abnormalities.
It also talks about increasing the autonomy of the device.
As for the Apple Watch SE, it (presumably) will also be equipped with an S6 chip. It will be equipped with a W4 wireless pairing processor, 16GB of memory and Bluetooth 5.0 for improved wireless capabilities.
We also know about planning the launch of a cellular version of the watch that can make international emergency calls. They have a fall detection function.
Apple Watch Series 5 are currently on sale. Their cost is $ 400. It is assumed that the latest series of smart watches will cost no less.
Apple Watch Series 3 now start at $ 200. The Apple Watch SE is likely to have the same price tag.
Samsung's mid-range foldable smartphone expected to launch
To date, it is known about several models of smartphones with foldable displays. All of them are quite expensive. It is clear that the main reasons for the high cost are the presence of modern complex components and new technologies in the design of the devices, the development of which took years of research.
It is known, for example, that Microsoft Surface was created for five years. Samsung has also been working on the first foldable smartphone for a long time.
The production of such devices also requires a lot of resources. It is known that in the process of debugging and finishing the Mate Xs, Huawei lost $ 60-70 million.
However, technology does not stand still. As they improve and the number of released models increases, prices for such devices are expected to fall.
SamMobile recently reported that Samsung is developing an affordable foldable smartphone, abbreviated as SM-F415. Little is known about this device now. Insiders claim that it will receive only two memory options: 64 and 128 GB.
Next year, the Korean manufacturer will launch a stripped-down version of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, which costs about $ 900. It's more than half the price of the Galaxy Fold, but still a little expensive. Therefore, there is an assumption that the SM-F415 will be even cheaper. For this, the developers will almost certainly have to make some compromises in the equipment of the new product.
