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.

This $2,500 Nokia phone commemorates the meeting of Trump and Putin.

Some people buy newspapers to remember historical events. Others buy customized Nokia smartphones. As first spotted by TechCrunch, a Russian phone-customization company debuted its latest creation this week: a new Nokia 3310 with embedded, gold-plated portraits of US president Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin on the back. The phone is meant to commemorate the two world leaders meeting at the G-20 Summit in Hamburg.

The middle button on the device features the G-20 Summit logo, while the phone body is made of tempered titanium. The data and location of the summit is also emblazoned across the back. This device is real and costs 149,000 rubles, or $2,500.

Caviar writes on its website that it purposely chose to display the presidents’ side profiles. They’re looking in the same direction, too, to symbolize “the common desire for progress in US-Russian relations.” Such harmonious phone vibes.

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.

Our network is in the process of being rolled out to other cities,” said the company’s JioCare handle on Twitter. It has also been mentioned that the service is being rolled out in a phased manner.

JioFIber will offer at least 100 mbps (megabits per second) data speed.

“Mumbai is home to a booming food industry with a vibrant food culture offering both global and local cuisines. The introduction of UberEATS in India, with Mumbai as the first city, is a major step in our global expansion and showcases our commitment to the region. The app brings the perfect pairing of amazing restaurant partners, innovative technology, and the efficient Uber delivery network at a tap of a button to people in India,” Bhavik Rathod, Head of UberEATS India, said.

With UberEATS app, users can view food photos as well as search for restaurants. The app uses machine learning to customise taste preferences, restaurants and dishes for individual users, based on their past orders. Another unique feature of UberEATS is that it offers the ability to schedule an order. Users can book deliveries anytime between up to an hour before the delivery window to a week in advance. Just like rival Swiggy, UberEATS lets users live track their order as well. Users can get their food delivered to customised locations including hospitals, parks and office buildings.

Remeber, UberEATS is a separate app and its services aren’t integrated in to Uber app. However, UberEATS uses the same technology as their cab service. There’s a delivery charge of Rs 15 on each order and no minimum order size. UberEATS is available for iOS and Android users on App Store and Play Store respectively.

To start using UberEATS, first download the app. Next, enter the address where you’d like your food delivered. You can browse by restuarants, price, cuisine type as well as speed. Now place order. You can choose items that you want delivered right away or schedule order for later. UberEATS allows users to pay via PayTM, which is their launch partner. Users can live-track their order via UberEATS.

UberEATS was rolled out as a delivery pilot in Los Angeles in 2014. The stand-alone app is now available in 26 countries and in 78 cities around the world. In India, UberEATS will face competition from the likes of Zomato and Swiggy, which are already quite popular as food delivery services. The challenge for UberEATS will be to offer something new in terms of service and UI as against those already present in this space.
