iPhone users, Android is set to get this big feature that you will miss

NEW DELHI: 2017 has been the year of dual rear camera smartphones. Keeping up with the trend, Qualcomm has announced its new ISPs (Image Signal Processors) which are likely to come as a part of the upcoming smartphone SoC and includes an improved biometric authentication and high-resolution depth sensing features.

Qualcomm says the improvements are made “to meet growing demands of photo and video for a broad range of mobile devices and head mounted displays (HMD).” Also mentioned is that the new ISPs and camera modules will support better image quality and new computer vision, which will use deep learning techniques and make image processing faster.
The new ISPs come with a new camera architecture, which will deliver power efficiency for the next Snapdragon Mobile and VR Platforms. The ISPs include three modules – iris authentication module, passive depth sensing module and an active depth sensing module.
It has been mentioned that the chipset will be using infrared light for measuring depth and accurate face recognition. What may also be seen are some improvements in HDR Photos, video stabilisation and better motion tracking using a VR headset. We are yet to see how much improvement will be there in the upcoming Android flagship smartphones.
On a related note, it looks like the earlier glimpse of the new ISPs could be seen with the rumoured Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL. Both smartphones are said to arrive later this year and are rumoured to come powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 836 processor.
According to a report by Android Headlines, Google’s upcoming flagships will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 836 processor, which will be quite similar to the Snapdragon 835 but will have quite higher CPU and GPU clock speed as compared to 835. This means that the processor will be energy efficient and quite stronger as compared to 835. However, the new chipset may also include new ISPs for better photography experience.

North Korea Has Made An iPad Of Their Own And It Looks Like A Piece of Shit.

North Korea has absolutely no chill and clearly, they don’t give a fuck. The country has come out with their very own iPad and they didn’t even shy away from calling it the same name. It is dubbed  the “Ryonghung iPad” and was featured in the country’s “Foreign Trade” magazine. 

The advertisement in the magazine says “The iPad has been…highly appreciated at the third national sci-tech festival and the national intellectual property products show in 2016,” 

It claims that the iPad has a Quadcore 1.2 Ghz CPU, 1GB of RAM (Haha!) and 8GB internal storage (ha ha again!). The device also has support for HDMI mirroring and a keyboard that can also be attached. The North Korean iPad is manufactured by the Myohyang IT Company.
The country has blatantly ripped off Apple’s trademarks by producing a tablet with the same name as the popular “iPad”. The isolated nation has infringed on Apple’s trademarks in the past as they also released a computer that eerily resembles the Mac OS X. 

The reclusive state has not really shared what OS the Ryonghung iPad will run on but it is very likely the tablet will run some form of Android.
