Now that TCL has basically dominated the budget-friendly smart TV market, the brand is stepping up its smartphone game. The company already sells budget handsets under the Alcatel name, but now it wants to sell mid-range Android smartphones such as the TCL 10 Pro for less than $500 that put some premium devices to shame.
Apple (AAPL) has again updated its flagship smartphone, the iPhone with its latest model, the iPhone 11. The latest variants were announced at a special Apple event on September 10th in Cupertino, California.
The new variants include the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
There are a number of changes to the latest iPhone model, according to Apple. It features a new anodized aluminum finish, more color options, dual-camera setup, all-day battery life and the fastest chip ever in a smartphone.
The new iPhone 11 also boasts of its ability to shoot and edit high-quality videos. Editing videos are as easy as editing pictures. Users will now have the ability to record and edit 4K videos at 60fps on all the cameras.
One noteworthy feature mentioned by Apple is the option to zoom in with the audio. When making a video and you zoom the video, the audio will match. We really can’t wait to get our hands on the iPhone 11 to experience this cool new feature.
Apple plans to start accepting pre-orders on September 13 at 5 am P.D.T and will commence shipping on September 20th.
They are currently promoting trade-ins of older models for a lower cost.
Apple will pre-order the iPhone 11 at $16.62 per month or $399 on an iPhone 8 Plus trade-in. The iPhone 11 Pro will go for $24.95 monthly or $599 with eligible trade while the iPhone Pro Max will go for $29 per month or $699 with iPhone X trade-in.
The development team has placed a refreshing spin on the iPhone for 2019. The new craze seems to be all about the camera. The iPhone 11, Pro and Pro Max will be available in retail for $699, $999 and $1099, respectively.
Now your iPhone is available in six vibrant colors; Product Red, black, yellow, white, purple, and green. Unfortunately, the Pro duo will only be available in four dull colors; gold, midnight green, space gray and silver.
All the features we mentioned earlier are listed on Apple’s website. Hopefully, they will be just as awesome with a hands-on of the phones.
Apple equipped the iPhone 11 with a 6.1-inch Liquid Retina display with a 1792 x 828-pixel resolution. The large screen display also retains the notch from the previous models and still has its large bezel.
iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max, on the other hand, features a Super Retina XDR display with HDR 10 support. There are two screen sizes; a 5.8-inch and a 6.5-inch, respectively.
The iPhone 11 trio series is powered by Apple’s latest A13 Bionic chip. The new processor is touted as its fastest processor ever and will be the fastest in a phone. There are three storage options; 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.
In terms of battery life, Apple brags of improved battery life with the iPhone 11. There are claims of a one-hour-longer battery life than the iPhone XS.
Apple didn’t release any talk time stats, probably because phones are more used for filming and streaming than talking nowadays. Hence, the reason why they estimated battery life based on playing streaming video.

The iPhone 11 features a dual-camera setup while the iPhone Pro and Pro Max get a triple camera setup. The dual-camera setup includes two 12-megapixel ultra-wide and wide lens.
Apple has made it easy for users to switch between wide and ultra-wide angles when capturing objects far away. There’s also a slew of features that accompanies the new cameras.
There is a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera on the front. It is capable of recording 4K videos at 60fps, slow-mo videos and will support selfies in landscape mode.
Similar to the non-Pro iPhone 11, they both get a 12-megapixel selfie camera. The camera also features a wide-angle lens and capable of capture selfies in landscape mode.
Apple added a rectangular camera bump with a triangle array of lenses. The iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max get a wide, ultra-wide and telephoto lens.
The ultra-wide has an f/2.4 aperture with a 120-degree field of view. As Apple’s first triple camera system its meant to compete with rivals who have already leaped to a four-camera system.
Things might have slowed down quite a bit over the last few months but that doesn’t mean everyone has closed up shop. Phone maker UMIDIGI, for its part, has been rather busy and is back with another new handset.The UMIDIGI A7 Pro, set to arrive on May 26, is a successor to its entry-level A5 Pro and figures to offer a great price to performance ratio. As such, it’s expected to cost less than $150 when it goes on sale.Normally you’d expect some pretty lean specifications for a phone priced this low, and you’d probably be right. But, UMIDIGI being who it is, has some pretty respectable hardware under the hood.The UMIDIGI A7 Pro features four cameras on the rear with AI smarts to capture the best shots in all environments. The 16-megapixel main lens is supported by a 16-megapixel ultra-wide (120 degree), 5-megapixel macro, and 5-megapixel depth sensor.

With an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, it should make for a thin design that’s easy to control in one hand.As far as power goes, the UMIDIGI A7 Pro comes with 4GB LPDDR4X RAM and is will be offered in two storage capacities: 64GB and 128GB. Paired with the enhanced Octa-Core processor, it’s considerably more powerful (AnTuTu 22,547) than its predecessor (92,514).The phone houses a 4,150mAh battery with a 10W charger included in the box and comes in Ocean Blue and Cosmic Black colors. Also in the way of design, the 2.5D glass back and metal frame and optical plating technology gives the phone a premium flagship appearance.Wrapping up noteworthy specification, there’s a fingerprint scanner on the back, USB Type-C, and a 3-Card Slot (Dual SIM + MicroSD) with up to 256GB expandable memory.

The recent rumors of the Apple iPad Pro 2020 caused a sensation but it was probably the Magic Keyboard with Trackpad that captured the scene. It is no coincidence that the commercials on the product are largely focused precisely on the use of computers.
The new iPad Pro stands out only from its back, where there is a double chamber with a square protrusion similar to that of the iPhone 11. Inside the changes there are, starting with the SoC A12Z Bionic, a new range of processors that Apple incorporates an 8-core graphics processor, which brings with it a more powerful Octa-core GPU compared to the A12X.
The first feature does not need clarification and is clearly very welcome to make the user experience more fluid, in multitasking as in more complex operations. Note that in the 1TB version of the iPad Pro 2018 the 6GB were already present, while all the other models had 4GB.
The ultra-wideband chip was first introduced with the iPhone 11, but at the moment its use in the field is very small and this is probably why Apple has not mentioned it. Its effects are rarely noticed, just with AirDrop an indication of the direction in which another device equipped with Apple U1 should appear. The problem is that the real use of this device, capable of relating to others like it in space, will be seen when there are many around. So, we will have to get used to seeing it appear passively in the product data sheets so that when the first concrete applications arrive these will already be operational with the devices that we have in our hands for years.
The new Apple iPad Pro 2020, integrates a rear module consisting of two cameras: 10 mpx ultra wide angle and 12 mpx wide angle , with which we can record spectacular videos and photos. The set of two cameras of the iPad Pro allows us to take photos and record videos in 4K quality. The front camera of the iPad Pro does not offer us any notable news compared to the previous model, since it is also compatible with Face ID, Apple’s facial recognition system.
In the same module where the cameras are located, there is also a sensor in LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) a sensor that allows determining the distance by measuring the time it takes for a light beam to reach an object and reflect it back to the sensor. This sensor works hand in hand with cameras, motion sensors and the operating system to measure depth, making the iPad Pro an ideal device for augmented reality.
The Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro with trackpad should also be compatible with the 2018 iPad Pro. The old Smart Keyboard Folio cannot be used on the new iPad Pro 2020, which requires the second generation. Instead, the 2nd generation Apple Pencil remains the same.
Considering also these two additions, the iPad Pro 2020 differs from the previous model in the following characteristics:
The starting prices of the Apple iPad Pro 2020 are the same as the previous generation, the only thing that changes is the storage space, which this time starts from 128 GB instead of 64 GB from the previous generation.
Honor announced a partnership with the fashion brand Boy London right in time for the launch of the Honor 30 smartphones. The most powerful Honor 30 Pro+ smartphone will be offered in a limited edition retail box with some branded accessories from the clothing company, including a case, a pin, and a unique t-shirt.
There are two options of the limited edition retail box – both have the case and the pin, but only one of them comes with the shirt. According to a listing at the Chinese retailer JD.com, Boy London and Honor share a similar DNA – they are fashion-conscious brands for the young and bold people.
If you want to purchase only the t-shirt that is part of the latest collection, you’ll have to pull nearly CNY600 out of your pocket – that’s $85/€80 for a shirt with the heraldic eagle, used also by The Third Reich. However, the bundles’ prices will be revealed tomorrow, when the phone officially launches.
Apple has done a grand job of keeping its AirPods 3, the next generation of its incredibly popular true wireless in-ear headphones, secret. The current model, version 2, was released on March 20, 2019 and added a faster chip, better battery life for calls and an optional wirelessly chargeable case.
But, earlier than some expected, the latest leaks suggest the third-generation AirPods are coming very soon.
It seems likely that as these are more advanced than the current models that the name may not be AirPods 3 but the more enticing AirPods Pro.
Earlier in October, a clue appeared in the latest iOS beta, version 13.2, which seems to hint at the new AirPods with an icon buried in the software.
Other rumors have strongly suggested that the new version will have noise-canceling capabilities, like the Sony WF100XM3 earbuds and the soon-to-be-released Huawei Freebuds 3.
Now, Slashleaks has images of what appears to be the case into which the new earbuds will plop to be charged, revealing a little about the shape of the earbuds, perhaps.
What’s interesting is that the purported case is quite a different shape from the current square-with-rounded-corners box on the AirPods now. This looks much wider but not as deep. The view from above hints at headphones which have noticeably larger earbuds than before, suggesting that advanced noise-isolation will also be a part of the design this time around.
Incidentally, Slashleaks now has a new legend above the images it has published which states: “Chinese Knockoff but likely accurate depiction of the original model”.
What’s more, Ben Geskin, who knows more than most about leaks and rumors, has tweeted that he also believes the image is real but of a non-genuine item – a fake version of AirPods Pro. Geskin also adds his voice to the belief that AirPods Pro are due any day.
Given the other leaks and rumors I’ve come across that seems right to me which says two things: first, although it’s not real it’s still a strong visualization of what’s coming and, second – oh joy – that work towards creating fake versions of the AirPods Pro has already begun.
There’s one other thing that seems near-certain. Whenever the new AirPods arrive, and I believe this will happen within a very few days, they are likely to be in as heavy demand as previous versions.
Expect the new design to become familiar very quickly.
