iOS 13.5 provides an exposure notification API that speeds up unlocking when wearing a mask.
Apple has just launched iOS 13.5, which brings some changes directly related to the pandemic. For starters, it brings the new notification API they created with Google. This is the basis for developing contact tracking apps. Another important feature is that Face ID now recognizes that you are wearing a mask and asks for your password immediately instead of taking ages to be recognized. It also works with Apple Pay and other apps. We have the full list of changes in the description.
OnePlus may not launch another McLaren Edition phone in the future.
Do you remember the phone with the coolest name ever? Yes, we're talking about the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition. It seems we won't have anyone else to mock as OnePlus is no longer listed on the official McLaren partner site. None of the companies have made a statement so far, but the partnership appears to have ended, which means we won't be seeing any OnePlus branded McLaren phones anymore. It could be a mistake or part of a strategy, but the logo is still not back on the website. We will keep you up to date if we have official statements. Let's hope the name gets a little less ridiculous if they decide to work together again.
We have new details on the launch event of the Samsung Galaxy Note 20
Well, as for some sad possible updates from the pandemic, well, Samsung usually hosts two big unpacked events for its flagship releases every year, however. I'm really shocked that we still unpacked February. For obvious reasons, this year will be different. According to a report from South Korea, Samsung has already made a decision. This is the first time that the company has released a flagship online. We're getting tons of silent releases online from Samsung, but they'll obviously have some sort of event for the Unpacked of the Note. The event is scheduled for August, but we don't have exact dates yet. Some other products that we could get at this event are of course the Galaxy Note 20, the Galaxy Fold 2 and some wearables.
Samsung Galaxy S21 could arrive with Chinese OLED displays
A few weeks ago, we reported that Samsung could drop the Samsung display for the Galaxy S21, but not entirely. According to some industry insiders, after a month of preliminary negotiations, Samsung has just sent an official request for quotation to BOE, indicating the business and the fact that they are already working on the S21. Now it is not clear whether we will get a Galaxy S21 Ultra, but this would not use a BOE display as these orders apply to 90 Hz displays. They also sent a request for quotation for 60 Hz and 120 Hz displays to Samsung Display so that they do not leave them completely. According to other insiders, Samsung is trying to get Samsung Display to lower the price of the panels, and the risk of BOE replacing them could work.
Other rumors say Google Pixel 5 will have a medium-range processor
And finally, we call this the most interesting news from today. I mean, pixels have been in the spotlight for weeks, although I wish they sold as much as people care about the news. We have received several rumors that Google Pixel 5 may not be a flagship. Yesterday, we covered the fact that a Google survey found that this phone may only cost $ 699. Now XDA has found some new evidence in the Android 11 Developer Preview that suggests that Pixel 5 brings the Snapdragon 765G processor. It's not clear whether it's the 765G or the new 768G, but it's compatible with what they found in the new Google Camera APK for upcoming pixel phones. The price tag also indicates that this phone may not have a Snapdragon 865.
