OnePlus to Reveal 7T Phones on Sept. 26

Sep 16, 2019 - 7:15 PM - by Reverend
OnePlus will officially unveil details about the company's 7T series smartphones next week on Sept. 26. The Chinese smartphone vendor is live-streaming a reveal event in North America next Thursday at 10:30 a.m. EST.

Details about the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro have already been widely leaked. On Monday, the company officially confirmed that the upcoming 7T model will sport a 90 Hz display, boosting the screen's refresh rate up from 60 Hz.

The 90 Hz screen is already present in the OnePlus 7 Pro, which launched in the US in May at a starting price of $669. The standard OnePlus 7, on the other hand, is priced at around $425 with some lower specs but it was never launched in North America.

As a result, US consumers had to pay more to own this generation's OnePlus phone. But now the company appears poised to release a more mid-range offering with the OnePlus 7T. "Faster and smoother than ever before, we're on a mission to spread 90Hz to eyes the world over," the company said in the video's description to a Youtube clip teasing the phone's design.

Other upgrades include how both phones will reportedly come with Qualcomm's improved Snapdragon 855+ processor and a new circular, triple-camera array on the rear. The leaks, however, suggest the 7T Pro model will remain largely the same when compared to May's release of the 7 Pro.

If the leaks are to be believed, the OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro will go on sale Oct. 10. In addition to the 7T series, OnePlus is also expected to launch the company's smart TV on Sept. 26 for the Indian market.

Faster Wi-Fi officially launches today

Sep 16, 2019 - 7:12 PM - by Reverend
The next generation of Wi-Fi has been trickling out over the past year, but this week, its launch is going to accelerate. The Wi-Fi Alliance, the organization that oversees implementation of the Wi-Fi standard, is launching its official Wi-Fi 6 certification program. That might sound boring, but it means the Wi-Fi 6 standard is truly ready to go, and tech companies will soon be able to advertise their products — mostly brand new ones — as certified to properly support Wi-Fi 6.

Wi-Fi 6 includes a bunch of new technologies that combine together to make Wi-Fi more efficient. This is particularly important because of just how many devices we all have these days — it’s not unusual for a family to have a dozen or more gadgets all connected to a Wi-Fi network at once. “The home scenario today looks like the dense deployment of yesterday,” says Kevin Robinson, marketing leader for the Wi-Fi Alliance.

So the point of Wi-Fi 6 is to boost speeds within a crowded network. The theoretical maximum speed for Wi-Fi is increasing, too — to 9.6 Gbps from 3.5 Gbps — but those numbers don’t really matter since you’ll never get them at home. What matters is that Wi-Fi 6 has a bunch of tools allowing it to operate faster and deliver more data at once, so the speeds you actually get will be higher than before. Those gains will be most noticeable on crowded networks, where the efficiency improvements will make up for the higher Wi-Fi demands. (Wi-Fi 6 also mandates a major security improvement.)

Really, though, today’s launch is largely a formality. The Wi-Fi certification program — while important, and very much marking the beginning of the Wi-Fi 6 era — isn’t required, and companies have been rolling out Wi-Fi 6 devices for months that likely work just fine. But the Wi-Fi Alliance is made up of members of the tech industry big and small, and its actions represent what wireless features and technologies they’re interested in delivering, so... [Read More]

Apple unveils iPhone 11

Sep 10, 2019 - 6:24 PM - by Reverend
Apple officially unveiled its new iPhone 11 lineup at a closely watched media event at its Cupertino, California, headquarters on Tuesday. The updated iPhone features new wide and ultra-wide cameras as well as an anodized glass design.

The company also unveiled a new seventh generation iPad at the event Tuesday, with a larger 10.2-inch retina display and a price tag starting at $329. The previous model had a 9.7-inch screen. And it announced the Apple Watch Series 5, an updated version of its smartwatch with an always-on display. With this feature, the watch face is always visible, rather than requiring the user to raise his or her wrist.

The Series 5 watch starts at $399, or $499 with cellular. The Series 3, an earlier version, will now retail for just $199.

Apple kicked off the event by focusing on its premium subscription services, a product area it is increasingly betting on to grow revenue and offset sales declines in its core iPhone business.

Apple unveiled pricing and additional details for Apple Arcade, its gaming subscription product, and Apple TV+, a new streaming service for original shows and movies. Apple Arcade and Apple TV+ will each cost $4.99 a month.

At a time when some of its competitors are launching innovative but riskier concepts, such as Samsung's foldable smartphone and its two 5G devices, Apple is expected to stay the course. That, too, may be risky. The iPhone business — still Apple's single biggest moneymaker — has been lackluster at best of late. Revenue from iPhone sales has declined by double-digit percentages in recent quarters.

EA Launches Surprise Cloud Gaming Trial With Four Games

Sep 10, 2019 - 6:19 PM - by Reverend
EA has announced its Cloud Gaming Technical Trial that will allow fans to test out EA's cloud technology with such titles as FIFA 19, Titanfall 2, Need for Speed Rivals, and Unravel.

EA's chief technology officer Ken Moss took to Medium to discuss EA's biggest public-facing step towards a cloud-based future since its announcement of Project Atlas last year, and fans can sign up now for a chance to try it out for themselves.

This test's main purpose is to "gather more inputs at scale to test performance and quality of service in a variety of network conditions and on multiple server routing scenarios." This test will be focused on cloud gaming on PC, but EA's goal is to allow gamers to play anywhere and on any device they choose.

EA wants to ensure "that there is strong quality of service in cloud gaming by being able to adjust to real-world, often less than ideal, conditions such as unstable bandwidth and network strength." Is utilizing Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the public cloud so it can "deploy as close to the players as possible, even in the face of unstable networks and changes in bandwidth."

The four games chosen for this trial - FIFA 19, Titanfall 2, Need for Speed Rivals, and Unravel, were picked so EA can test many different genres of game to ensure gamers get the best performance possible when/if EA's cloud service becomes a full-fledged service.

Furthermore, EA will be testing the "technical functionality of cross play" that will allow players to play together no matter what device they are using. Additionally, the goal is to ensure cross save will be implemented as well.

Moss states that cloud gaming is just "one part of our broader vision for how cloud will shape the future of gaming," and that "these continued investments in cloud, distributed computing, AI, social features, and engines will redefine the... [Read More]
