The recent OnePlus 7T / 7T Pro have a Fuild AMOLED screen with a 90 Hz refresh rate. The same frequency was chosen by Google for Pixels 4. The Chinese manufacturer could bring the value to 120 Hz with the next one OnePlus 8 Pro.
Indiscretion comes from a well-known leaker, considered quite reliable. For the OnePlus 8 the frequency of would instead be confirmed 90 Hz. OnePlus will certainly allow you to set the traditional 60 Hz, as the permanent use of 120 Hz will lead to excessive battery consumption, in addition to the fact that a similar value is not necessary for all contents. The greatest benefits are achieved with fast-moving images, such as games. Videos are usually recorded at 24 or 30 fps.
LG has announced a new low-end Android tablet. The G Pad 5 10.1 could be considered the successor of the G Pad 4 8.0 of 2017, despite the larger screen. It is not known whether the Korean manufacturer will also bring the device to Europe.
The G Pad 5 has a rather traditional design with rounded corners and picture frames quite obvious. The thickness of the upper one is justified by the presence of the 5 megapixel front camera and other sensors. The lower one does not include the fingerprint reader, located on the right side, so it could be smaller. The IPS screen from 10.1 inches it has a full HD resolution (1920 × 1200 pixels), a viewing angle of 178 degrees and a blue light filter that reduces eye strain.
The Chinese manufacturer has not only unveiled news for developers at the San Jose SDC19 event. Samsung has indeed announced two interesting notebooks, namely Galaxy Book Flex and Ion, both with QLED screen. These new models will take the place of Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 respectively.
The Galaxy Book Flex and Ion have several features in common. Both have a frame in aluminum, meet Intel Project Athena program requirements and are available with screen from 13.3 and 15.6 inches. Samsung has chosen a panel QLED with full HD resolution (1920 × 1080 pixels), an absolute novelty for the sector. QLED technology has been used so far only for high-end TVs.
Development continues for the Dark Mode of WhatsApp, which is updated for Android with the beta number 2.19.297. Already during the last two updates we have seen some news from the developers, who are concentrated in the construction of this much awaited mode. This time, however, with the beta comes only one novelty, namely the new one Splash Screen, the initial screen you see when the app starts.
The first foldable smartphone from Samsung came on the market only at the beginning of September, as some changes were made compared to the original version. Based on rumors coming from Korea, the Galaxy Fold 2 it will have a flexible glass that protects the screen and a shell design.
The Galaxy Fold has a 7.3-inch internal display protected by a film in it polyimide, a transparent plastic material that resists wear. As the iFixit experts have verified, a single closure of the smartphone is sufficient to make a vertical line appear at the hinge. This "aesthetic defect" and any scratches will be eliminated with the use of a UTG (Ultra Thin Glass), a flexible glass very thin manufactured by DOWOO INSYS which should be the exclusive supplier for Samsung.
OnePlus chose two distinct days to announce the new series. The OnePlus 7T was presented in India on September 26 (but will also arrive in Italy), while the debut of the OnePlus 7T Pro it happened today during the London event. There are no aesthetic innovations compared to the OnePlus 7 Pro, while the hardware upgrade concerns only the processor and battery.
The new Redmi Note 8 Pro has been available in Italy for a few days. Those who want a decent entry level smartphone can buy the Redmi 8 announced in India, but that will surely arrive in our country, where Redmi 7 is already on sale. Compared to the previous model there are interesting improvements, but also a deterioration.
