Intel's 7nm product transition delayed to 2022
Let's talk about Intel as they are pretty messy. The company is far behind with the launch of its 7nm chips and it looks like they have further delays in the pipeline. They have just announced their quarterly results for the second quarter, announcing that their 7nm chips will be delayed by another 6 months and will now be released by late 2022 or early 2023. This is a total of 12 months later than the original roadmap. According to their CEO, in their new process they have found a “defect mode” that leads to problems with the deterioration in earnings. Your Vecchio GPUs and server CPUs were also affected and will now be started later. We'll keep you up to date, but you should hurry because AMD has already switched to 7nm and Apple Silicon will be working on 5nm processes. Oh, and who remembers Sly DelVecchio in passenger 57? I know i am old.
The launch of Microsoft Surface Duo may be around the corner as Bluetooth certification is granted.
When we talk about delays, we go to Microsoft. We've been waiting for the Surface Duo for 10 crazy months, but it looks like we're finally getting closer. An FCC certification has just been passed and the two screens and network functions have been tested. According to a report, the confidentiality agreement ends on October 29 and is expected to be released for the holidays. However, only Bluetooth SIG certification has been passed to ensure Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity. The listing mentions a dual-screen device that went into operation on July 24. These two certifications usually take place when the device comes out, so there's a chance we'll get it in the next few weeks. The leaked specs haven't changed and we're still expecting a Snapdragon 855, 6GB RAM, 256GB storage and a 3460mAh battery.
Apple iPhone 11 is now being manufactured in India and could soon get a price cut
We have some pretty good news for our Indian audience. If you remember, Apple shifted iPhone XR production to India about 9 months ago. The Minister of Commerce and Industry has just tweeted that Foxconn will also move iPhone 11 production to India, and that's actually a good thing. In this way, Apple can avoid the 20% tax required to import the phone from global facilities. Now prices could go down. The iPhone 11 is already listed on the Indian Prime Day, which will take place on August 6th and 7th. Apple's suppliers appear to be making huge investments in India as consumer demand has increased recently.
It appears that we may soon get facial recognition in future Macs.
We've been talking about a redesigned iMac for some time now, and it looks like the redesign will give us some new features. The guys from 9to5Mac found some references to Face ID in the macOS Big Sur code. The latest beta includes an extension called "PearlCamera" and Pearl has been Apple's Code for Face ID since its launch with the iPhone X. In the extension we find references to "FaceDetect" and "BioCapture", which suggests that the next Macs could bring a TrueDepth camera with them. We assume that this could be the case with the iMacs, as they should offer iPad Pro frames with sufficient space and MacBooks currently have a Touch ID, which is not really useful for an iMac, since the keyboard is available separately . From now on we have no more leaks, but we should get some if it is true.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 may come with a 25W charger in a retail package.
Here are the details of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra cameras
We're getting more and more Galaxy Note 20 leaks the closer we get, and no people, I don't have a phone. Today we have some new leaks from Twitter with some detailed camera specs for both phones. It gets a bit technical, so we'll only give you the essential details. The regular Note 20 will basically bring the S20 + camera array, and that's not a bad thing. I think that was the best camera in the current S20 series. We have a main 12MP sensor, a 64MP triple zoom telephoto lens, a 12MP wide angle, and a ToF 3D depth sensor that we thought didn't work. It will apparently be able to record up to 8K at 24 fps, 4K at 60 fps, 1080p at 240 fps and 720p at 960 fps. The Ultra includes a 108-megapixel primary, a 12-megapixel wide-angle and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens as well as the ToF 3D depth sensor. The video features are the same as the Note 20, but we expect this phone to achieve a 50x zoom with the periscope lens. Another tweet from the same source also claims that both phones come with a 25W charger in the box. These leaks also show that the Note 20 could start around the $ 999 mark and the Ultra around the $ 1200 mark. Given yesterday's leaks that the regular Note 20 could be a kind of lite variant, that $ 999 price doesn't seem attractive.
