Samsung has expanded upon its „Ingenius“ ad campaign with three new videos titled Dongle, Fast Charger, and Camera.
In each of the videos, Samsung depicts an Apple Store employee having a conversation with a customer, attempting to justify the iPhone’s lack of a headphone jack and lack of a fast charger included in the box.
For what it’s worth, rumors suggest Apple will include a faster 18W charger in the box with its upcoming 2018 iPhones.
A third ad also emphasizes that the Galaxy S9+’s camera has a higher DxOMark score than the iPhone X—99 versus 97 respectively—although DxOMark has attracted some criticism, and camera [...]
Rumors suggest Apple will bundle a faster 18-watt USB-C power adapter with its 2018 iPhones, but it might not be sold separately for a while.
Japanese blog Mac Otakara reports that Apple’s suppliers are likely only able to manufacture enough chargers for inclusion with 2018 iPhones, suggesting that Apple may hold off on selling them as a standalone accessory until some point after the smartphones launch, although exactly when remains to be seen.
Earlier this month, photos of an alleged prototype of the new power adapter surfaced, revealing its slightly bulkier, rounder shaped plastic casing compared to the current 5W power adapter. The design in the photos [...]
Corning this morning unveiled its next-generation Gorilla Glass product, Gorilla Glass 6, which it says offers „unprecedented protection against multiple drops“ and better protection against drops from higher heights.
According to Corning, Gorilla Glass 6 is its most durable cover glass to date, made of a new material that’s been engineered to stand up to more than one drop. The average person drops their smartphone seven times a year, making multi-drop durability a key feature Corning wanted to improve.
Devices using Gorilla Glass 6 were able to withstand 15 drops from one meter onto rough surfaces, which is up to two times better than Gorilla [...]
Samsung today announced it has completed functional testing and validation of the industry’s first 10-nanometer class 8-gigabit LPDDR5 DRAM.
Samsung says the prototype chip boasts a data rate of up to 6.4 Gbps per second, which is 1.5 times as fast as the LPDDR4X DRAM used in the iPhone X and other flagship smartphones. The chip also features an all-new sleep mode and other features that reduce power consumption by up to 30 percent.
AnandTech has a good overview of the chip’s technical details, but from a higher level, this development could result in future iPhones having even faster, yet even more efficient, memory. That would translate to maximized [...]
