Snapdragon 732G announced: More like a Snapdragon 730G Plus

Image
Qualcomm has revealed the Snapdragon 732G processor. It’s essentially a mildly upgraded version of the Snapdragon 730G. An upcoming Poco phone (presumably the Poco X3) will indeed offer this chipset. Qualcomm announced its first gaming-focused chipset last year in the Snapdragon 730G , offering good graphics performance and gaming-specific enhancements for mid-range phones like the Google Pixel 4a . Now, the company has announced a “follow-on” in the form of the Snapdragon 732G. The new chipset is an incremental upgrade that takes the “Plus” route established by the Snapdragon 855 Plus and Snapdragon 865 Plus , albeit without the additional moniker. The Snapdragon 732G maintains the older chipset’s CPU layout (2x Cortex-A76 and 6x Cortex-A55), but Qualcomm says the “Prime” core is bumped up from 2.2Ghz to 2.3Ghz in the new chipset. This suggests that the remaining Cortex-A76 core is still at 2.2Ghz. The firm also confirmed the SoC features the same Adreno 618 GPU as the old

Motorola’s latest budget 5G phone looks very familiar

Image
Credit: Supplied by Motorola The Moto One 5G has been announced, making it the first Moto One device with 5G. Motorola’s new mid-tier release packs a 90Hz screen and 5,000mAh battery. It’s a rebranded or slightly tweaked version of the Moto G 5G Plus. Motorola has already released a couple of 5G phones this year, and it’s now adding another device to its stable with the Moto One 5G. However, it looks like the new phone is actually a rebranded Moto G 5G Plus , released last month. The manufacturer seems to be following Realme and Xiaomi’s formula of rebranding devices with the Moto One 5G. That means you’ve got the same chipset, refresh rate, cameras, and battery size as last month’s device. Nevertheless, the new phone is the first 5G-enabled device in the value-focused Moto One range, enabled by a Snapdragon 765 processor . Toss in 4GB of RAM and you have a phone that isn’t the most powerful device on paper (even compared to other mid-range 5G devices), but it should

Le Lenovo Yoga 9i // Source : Lenovo Cette semaine sera marquée par beaucoup d’actualité du côté des PC. En plus des présentations attendues des nouveaux processeurs Intel Tiger Lake , et de la nouvelle génération Ampere de puces graphiques Nvidia (les fameuses RTX 3080/3090) , il faut savoir qu’en Allemagne se déroulera l’IFA, ouvert seulement à quelques personnes cette année, en raison de la crise sanitaire. Si le salon est plus ou moins animé par les fabricants chaque année, l’édition 2020 est un peu particulière puisque le Computex de juin a été annulé et les annonces des marques de PC n’ont pas pu être faites correctement. Tout cela nous amène donc à cette semaine d’annonces de nouvelles machines, et c’est Lenovo qui ouvre le bal. Lenovo Yoga Slim 9i : nouveau design avec du cuir et du verre

Samsung’s 7,000mAh phone lands, and more tech news you need to know today

Image
Your tech news digest, by way of the  DGiT Daily tech newsletter , for Monday, 31 August 2020 1. Analogue Pocket: Why and what gives? Samsung’s M-series of Galaxy smartphones promised plenty in early 2019 when they were first unveiled as proper mid-range devices, mostly focused on India. While the more European/US-focused Galaxy A-series has worked well, with the current A51 and A71 models attractive devices in the US, the M-series didn’t do that much on launch in India. That’s mainly because it was hard up against competition from Xiaomi and Realme, on both price and specs. Now we’ve seen rumors of the new Galaxy M51 with a huge battery, and Samsung surprised everyone with the phone quietly going official on Samsung’s official German website . Only, not all specs — including dimensions — are listed. So while it’s clearly not a svelte device, we don’t know the thickness. Although in this helpful spinning render, the thickness doesn’t look odd: Otherwise, the leaks were

Looks like Xiaomi’s budget smartwatch is all set to step out of China

Image
Xiaomi could soon launch the Mi Band 5 and Mi Band Revolve in India. The two wearables might be targeted at the budget fitness tracker segment. Xiaomi could soon launch two new wearables in India. According to 91Mobiles (via tipster Ishan Agarwal ), the company is all set to launch the Mi Watch Revolve and Mi Band 5 in the country. When (and if) it launches, the Mi Watch Revolve will be Xiaomi’s first smartwatch in India. It’s believed to be a rebranded Mi Watch Color that’s already out in China. The smartwatch was also previously spotted in the Mi Watch App with the same design as its Chinese counterpart. The rounded Mi Watch Color is a cheaper alternative to Xiaomi’s Apple Watch lookalike — the Mi Watch . It’s also more akin to a fitness watch than a full-featured smartwatch in that it doesn’t make/receive phone calls or support third-party apps. It does, however, get a host of fitness tracking features and boasts 14-day battery life. It also features an AMOLED display,

TikTok : le plan de la Chine pour saboter la vente de l’app à une entreprise américaine

Pour sauver ses activités outre-Atlantique, la plateforme et ses technologies doivent être revendues à une entreprise américaine. En l’occurrence, l’alliance Microsoft-Walmart semble la mieux partie pour effectuer ce rachat . Microsoft serait même prêt à racheter les activités de TikTok dans plusieurs régions du monde . Toutefois, la Chine ne semble pas l’entendre de cette oreille, bien décidée à ne pas se laisser marcher sur les pieds par Washington.

EFF: California’s Assembly May Do Nothing to Help on Broadband—Thanks to Big ISPs

Image
California’s Assembly May Do Nothing to Help on Broadband—Thanks to Big ISPs As the final hours of the California legislative session tick down, it appears that the California Assembly may decide to not move forward on S.B. 1130 or any other legislative deal to start addressing the digital divide this year. There has been broad support for legislation to close the digital divide: from rural and urban representatives in the California Senate, from small businesses and consumer advocates, and from the governor’s office. But big Internet Service Providers (ISPs) oppose any and all such plans, from boosting local communities’ ability to bond finance fiber, to extending financing for infrastructure to areas that the major ISPs have ignored through a tiny fee that the ISPs already pay. In fact, they have opposed virtually every idea that would challenge their slow, non-broadband Internet monopoly profits just as strongly as every effort to connect the completely unserved. And that oppo
