AMD’s beastily new mobile CPUs stun tech, and more

Image
Your good tech news digest, by way of the DGiT Daily newsletter , for Tuesday, March 31.  1. AMD The battle for CPU supremacy in PCs has long been a two-horse race between Intel and AMD for decades. As Apple’s MacBooks rose in popularity (until the keyboard fiasco , recently fixed), the more important discussions have been about size, form-factor, utility, battery life, more so than which CPU was on board, for most people. Not counting gamers, of course. So what’s interesting? AMD’s new lead in mobile CPU computing, courtesy of the new 7nm Ryzen 9 4900H and 4900HK mobile CPUs. Trust me, I haven’t seen tech sites this hype for a long time: PC World calls AMD’s Ryzen 9 chips “a crushing blow to Intel’s most powerful laptop CPUs,” and offers “game-changing performance for laptops”. The Verge says “AMD has rewritten the rules of what a gaming laptop can be,” and Digital Trends says “AMD drops the mic”. What’s important is that the AMD chips use 35W of power, down from the usua

Huawei P40 Pro tops DxOMark charts, ‘blows competition out of the water’

Image
The Huawei P series stands out thanks to its camera credentials, offering class-leading low-light photos and great zoom capabilities. Huawei’s P40 series continues the camera focus in terms of pure specs, and now camera testing firm DxOMark says the P40 Pro is at the top of the pile. DxOMark tested the Huawei P40 Pro and gave it a score of 128 points, beating the Oppo Find X2 Pro by four points to claim the number one spot in the firm’s rankings. The company gave Huawei’s flagship a photo score of 140 and a video score of 105, with both scores being new records. In terms of photography, the testing firm said the P40 Pro delivered very wide dynamic range, good levels of detail at medium and long range, and good detail in bokeh shots. DxOMark also heaped praise on the autofocus performance and the exposure at night, with the firm saying the night shots in particular were better than other tested devices. DxOMark It wasn’t all good here though, as the testing company criticized th

Deal: Save $200 on unlocked Samsung Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus

Image
Samsung’s Galaxy S20 phones have a lot to offer in terms of specs and features. Their stellar performance, versatile set of cameras, and gorgeous designs make them some of the best Android phones you can buy right now. The premium phones carry a hefty price tag though. The base variant of the regular S20 will set you back a cool $1,000, while the S20 Ultra will cost you a whopping $1,400. However, you’re in luck if you’re looking to pick up a Galaxy S20 flagship for under $1,000. The Galaxy S20 and S20 Plus are available with a $200 discount right now from B&H Photo and Best Buy . The discounts are applicable to both the 128GB and 512GB storage models. Best Buy is also offering an additional $50 off the unlocked devices if you activate carrier services at the time of purchase. Sadly, the top-of-the-line S20 Ultra is still priced at $1,400. So if the S20 or the S20 Plus tickle your fancy, you can find the deals on B&H Photo and Best Buy via the buttons below. S

Poco exec confirms Poco F2 won’t be rebranded Redmi K30 Pro

Image
The Poco X2 was the first Poco phone since 2018’s Poco F1 , but the new phone was actually a rebranded Redmi K30 4G. So it was expected that the Poco F2 would actually be based on the recently announced Redmi K30 Pro flagship. However, Poco India general manager Chandolu Manmohan reportedly told a Zoom meeting of enthusiasts (h/t: MySmartPrice and FoneArena ) that the Poco F2 would not be a rebranded Redmi K30 Pro . This statement comes despite XDA-Developers previously finding evidence that the Redmi K30 Pro would indeed be a Poco device in India. This suggests that the K30 Pro could be a Poco device but not the Poco F2, and that the upcoming device is a new phone altogether. It’s also possible that another phone could be the basis for the F2 (such as the Snapdragon 765G-toting Redmi K30 5G). Furthermore, Manmohan apparently told the meeting that people expecting a Rs 20,000 (~$265) price tag for the Poco F2 shouldn’t wait for the device and should rather get the Poco X2 .

All the OnePlus 8 series news including a OnePlus Z rumor, and more tech today

Image
Your good tech news digest, by way of the DGiT Daily newsletter , for Monday, March 30.  1. OnePlus 8 news, OnePlus Z leaks WinFuture The OnePlus 8 series has a launch date: April 14. OnePlus CEO Pete Lau hinted at it on Twitter over the weekend, and this morning the word went out: April 14th for the Pro series, at 11am ET. We expected that would happen, with leaks and rumors gathering steam. What we didn’t expect was a new smartphone series, but I have some theories about why OnePlus might go down the road. More on that below. OnePlus 8: Confirmed bits and bobs New OnePlus phones are pretty hotly anticipated and OnePlus is pretty good at dripping out information in advance. We already know the new flagship will be powered by a Qualcomm 5G chip , have a 120Hz refresh rate on the Samsung-supplied display, and improve Android animations to match that display. Official launch date: April 14. And here’s the poster for the “Lead With Speed” graphic: What the leaks say: Leaks

Honor 30s announced: Honor’s mid-range gets a speed boost

Image
Honor We already heard murmurings of a Kirin 820 chipset earlier this month, and now Honor has made it official by launching the Kirin 820-powered Honor 30s in China. The new chipset is a reasonably heavy lifter on the CPU front, delivering four Cortex-A76 cores (one at 2.36Ghz and three at 2.22Ghz) and four Cortex-A55 cores (1.84Ghz). This should translate into better multi-core performance in theory than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 700 series. HiSilicon’s new processor also sports a Mali-G57 MP6 GPU rather than Mali-G77 graphics as previously rumored. Otherwise, you can also expect an upgraded NPU as well as 5G capabilities. What else does Honor 30s offer? Honor 5G generally requires more juice than 4G, but the Honor 30s features a 4,000mAh battery that’s not exactly large compared to other 5G phones. Fortunately, 40W wired charging means you can hit 100% capacity in just over an hour, and 70% in 30 minutes (there’s no wireless charging though). The phone is pretty solid in the c
