Android phone makers to not launch 3D sensing models until 3Q18
niedziela, 22 kwietnia 2018 20:05

The world's first Android-based smartphone with 3D facial recognition technology is unlikely to hit the market until the third quarter of 2018 due to insufficient capability to integrate related hardware and software at 3D sensing solution providers, according to Digitimes Research. While the 3D sensing module jointly developed by Qualcomm, Himax Technologies and Truly Opto-electronics is believed to be the most mature 3D sensing solution currently available in the market, the limit of using only Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 CPU in the module has deterred the top-five Android phone makers, with the exception of Xiaomi Technology, from using this module for their high-end models.

China's ZTE slams U.S. ban on sales, says company's survival at risk
niedziela, 22 kwietnia 2018 12:07

China’s ZTE Corp said that a U.S. ban on the sale of parts and software to the company was unfair and threatens its survival, and vowed to safeguard its interests through all legal means. The United States this week imposed a ban on sales by American companies to ZTE for seven years, saying the Chinese company had broken a settlement agreement with repeated false statements - a move that threatens to cut off its supply chain. “It is unacceptable that BIS insists on unfairly imposing the most severe penalty on ZTE even before the completion of investigation of facts,” ZTE said in its first response since the ban was announced, referring to the U.S. Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security.

G.Skill releases new memory for 2nd-gen Ryzen and X470
niedziela, 22 kwietnia 2018 07:54

G.Skill announced the availability of new, higher-speed memory kits in its AMD-version Trident Z and Sniper X product lines. The first is now available in speeds up to 3600MHz, and the second in speeds up to 3466MHz. It should be noted that this announcement only applies to G.Skill’s AMD-specific memory kits. The company already offers memories at and beyond these speeds, but they’re not guaranteed to work with AMD’s Ryzen and Threadripper processors. The maximum default memory speed on X470 is 2933MHz, but our own overclocking managed to bring that to 3466MHz.

piątek, 20 kwietnia 2018 18:00

A more affordable iPhone may be heading our way: Apple is rumored to be releasing a 6.1-inch iPhone in the fall priced as low as $550.
