Qualcomm confirms Samsung Galaxy S23 series will use only Snapdragon chipsets

Nov 07, 2022 - 10:14 AM - by Reverend
Samsung is expected to launch its Galaxy S23 series phones in the first week of February according to the latest rumors and this might be the year where all models will launch with the same chipset globally. Rumors about an all-Snapdragon lineup of Galaxy S23 series phones have been going on for months and the latest earnings call from Qualcomm all but confirm these rumors are true.

During their Q4 earnings call Qualcomm CFO Akash Palkhiwala confirmed expectations for a strong second half of the March quarter (Q1) 2023 which likely coincides with the first months of sales for the Galaxy S23 series phones. He also confirmed Qualcomm has moved from a 75% share (of chipsets) in the Galaxy S22 series to a global share - meaning Qualcomm chipsets for all models of the S23 series.

All three Samsung Galaxy S23 series phones (S23, S23+ and S22 Ultra) have already passed through Geekbench exclusively with the alleged Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.

Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon confirmed a multiyear partnership with Samsung which will bring Snapdragon chipset to all premium Samsung Galaxy phones globally.

A report from last month still suggests an Exynos-powered Galaxy S23 series is not ruled out despite disappointment from in-house Exynos chips from the Samsung MX (Mobile eXperience) division.

Instagram bug tells some users accounts are suspended

Nov 01, 2022 - 7:13 PM - by Reverend
Instagram users across the world have been reporting issues accessing their profiles.

The Meta-owned social network says it is "looking into" the problem, which has caused some people to be told they are suspended from the platform.

DownDetector - which monitors site outages - says it has found that thousands of users are affected.

Some have been shown a message saying that their account has been shut down for 30 days.

A tweet from the official Instagram Communications account said: "We're aware that some of you are having issues accessing your Instagram account.

"We're looking into it and apologise for the inconvenience."

The company has not yet offered any further details on what has caused the unusual issue.

Some users still able to get on to the platform have reported seeing large drops in their follower numbers as the suspended accounts hit by the issue disappear from the site.

Last week, fellow Meta messaging platform WhatsApp suffered an outage which knocked it offline for about two hours.

Apple Confirms It Will Add USB-C Ports to iPhones After New EU Law

Oct 26, 2022 - 9:26 PM - by Reverend
Apple has confirmed it will be equipping future iPhones in the European Union with a USB-C port in order to comply with the EUís new mandate that all phones sold in its countries must use a USB-C charger.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Apple Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Greg Joswiak said the company will "have to comply" with the new mandate, but made it clear it would do so because it had "no choice" in the matter. He also argued charging bricks had largely solved this problem, adding that users throwing out their original Lightning cables will result in a great deal of waste as devices make the switch.

ďGovernments, you know, get to do what they're gonna do. Obviously we'll have to comply. We have no choice as we do around the world to comply to local laws,Ē Joswiak says. ďBut, you know, we think the approach would've been better environmentally and better for our customers to not have a government be that prescriptive.Ē

The EUís new law aims to have electronic devices all using USB-C ports by 2024. The goal is to allow people using multiple devices to reliably charge phones, tablets, handheld gaming consoles like the Switch, and other chargeable tech with universal ports and cables, rather than having to use several across different brands. Apple phones have primarily used Lightning cables since their introduction in 2012.

Millions of WhatsApp users alerted over update that changes phone calls forever

Oct 21, 2022 - 7:29 PM - by Reverend
Millions of WhatsApp users have been alerted to an update that is set to change phone calls forever.

Voice calls have been available on the app for years, and the feature can be handy especially when you have access to WiFi - but no phone signal.

Now, the voice call feature is being tweaked slightly as the company tests a new update.

The new feature would let people create links to join a call, similar to setting up meetings on Zoom, or Google Meet - as many Brits working from home became accustomed to during the coronavirus pandemic.

Under the new update, users can schedule future calls, rather than having to set it up in the moment.

The change was spotted by technology investigators at WABetaInfo who found evidence of it in the beta trial version of WhatsApp.

The website reports: "If you want to check if you have this feature enabled for your account, just check the calls tab. If you see a new option called 'create call link': if this option shows up, it means you can already start creating a shareable link for calls."

Similar to FaceTime, Zoom, and Google Meet, you can choose whether you want the call to allow video as well as audio.

It will automatically convert to a group call when more than two people join, meaning you will be able to have conference call meetings on WhatsApp.

If the new update is available to you, users are being urged to only share links with people you trust to keep your device secure.

The feature is currently only available in beta right now, but experts said it will eventually roll out to the general release version of the app at an unknown date in the future.

Microsoft's Windows Subsystem for Android finally gets its stable release

Oct 21, 2022 - 7:15 PM - by Reverend
When Windows 11 launched a little over a year ago, support for Android apps was one of the biggest feature attractions for Android enthusiasts like us. Microsoft promised you'd be able to run Android apps as though they were native programs on your Windows machine. However, the Windows Subsystem for Android (WSA), responsible for handling app support, remained available only to Windows Insiders in some markets, with limited functionality. That is finally changing, as Android support enters the stable phase.

Microsoft's Cory Hendrixson announced that WSA is now rolling out to everyone in 31 markets, with just over 50,000 apps to keep you engrossed. Microsoft's solution with WSA relies on the relatively limited Amazon Appstore for access to software, but it means you wonít need a stand-alone Android emulator for your PC ó plus, youíll have oodles of processing power at your disposal.

With this shift, you donít need to be a Windows Insider running a beta build of Windows 11 to start using Android apps. Simply make sure your computer meets the minimum requirements for running. If WSA isnít available in your region, there are ways to install it manually (yes, PowerShell), which now work on any compatible computer running Windows 11 ó because you donít have to be an Insider.

Keep in mind that some functionality still hasnít arrived, including support for picture-in-picture (PIP), hardware DRM, USB, direct Bluetooth access, and Android widgets ó support for more of these should arrive soon. Esper senior editor Mishaal Rahman also points out that an Android 13 update is in the cards for WSA.
