Apple Surveys Customers on Chargers as iPhone 12 Rumours Abound

In June, several reports suggested that the new iPhone 12 might not come with regular bundled peripherals such as EarPods or an USB charger.

According to a report by 9to5Mac, Twitter user Gustavo Alves Reis shared a screenshot of the survey where the question, “What did you do with the USB power adapter that came in the box with the iPhone XR that you replaced?”

Targeting old users along with those who recently purchased a new model, the survey asks how consumers what they did with the old chargers after replacing it with a new model.

This survey comes amidst speculations that the upcoming iPhone 12, expected to release this fall, may arrive without wired headphones or USB chargers.

Apple has reportedly begun a survey where it asks iPhone users questions about how they have been using the charging adapters that came bundled with their older models.

Galaxy Z Flip 5G leaks with familiar next-gen look

At the same time, using 5G in the name sort of flies in the face of Samsung’s current efforts to simplify their portfolio by making their foldable devices all fall into the “Z” category.

The first Galaxy Z Flip had a 6.7-inch foldable display inside – and the 5G version shown here seems to have that same display, per Tenaa via TechnoSports.

The first Samsung Galaxy Z Flip was part of Samsung’s (rather sizable) test run for foldable displays.

The next Samsung Galaxy Z Flip foldable (foldable display) smartphone was leaked today from several angles.

The 2020 Galaxy Fold device will be called Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, rather than just Galaxy Fold 2.

Linux Kernel Preparing New Guidelines For Using Inclusive Terminology

Prominent upstream Linux kernel developers are working on adding "inclusive terminology" guidelines to the Linux kernel coding style requirements.The new inclusive terminology documentation applies to new code being contributed to the Linux kernel but ultimately in hopes of replacing existing code with words deemed not inclusive.

The exception being granted though is where changing the terminology could potentially break the user-space ABI given the kernel's longstanding guarantees on not breaking that interface.These new guidelines for Linux kernel developers call for initially avoiding words including "slave" and "blacklist" to instead use words like subordinate, replica, follower, performer, blocklist, or denylist.These changes are being worked on as for the Linux kernel coding style in that non-inclusive terminology is said to be a distracting effect.The inclusive terminology documentation being currently discussed can be found via this kernel mailing list thread

I used the Huawei Mate Xs and now I don't want to go back to a normal smartphone

It’s a very exciting future that the Mate Xs has revealed for me, and I can’t wait for the time when everyone can afford a foldable - be that of the ‘phone turns into tablet’ variety like the Mate Xs or Galaxy Fold, or the ‘phone becomes easily pocketable’ option pioneered by the Motorola Razr and the Galaxy Z Flip.

Overall my time with the Mate Xs has proven that after years of incremental advances in the smartphone world, we’re now standing at the precipice of a huge shift in usability, triggered by the advent of foldable screens.

Battery life on the Mate Xs has been surprisingly good, but then again all Huawei and Honor phones have this in common - numbers greater than what the capacity would suggest, compared to the Android competition.

Then there’s the fact that, if you hold the Mate Xs closed as a phone, because of where the software is programmed to make the phone screen “end”, you get a small curve on the left side, but no such thing on the right side, where the side bezel is actually quite prominent.

Huawei is now on its second-generation foldable with minor improvements compared to the first, and after using the Mate Xs for a few weeks I have to say - it’s incredibly hard to go back to any traditional smartphone.

Durabook claims that its new ultra-slim yet rugged tablet is ideal for fieldwork in 2020

This may make it more amenable to work in the hazardous environments of today.

However, this one is also only about 20 millimeters (mm) in height and weighs 1.2 kilograms.

Like others from this OEM, it has military-grade drop, shock, ingress and temperature resistance.

Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 gets third Android 10 beta with fixes for PUBG mobile and June 2020 security patch

Asus provided an Android 9 Pie update for the 2018 handset, and now is giving bold steps to roll out a stable Android 10 update.

Although the ZenFone Max Pro M1 wasn’t an Android One device, it received a decent treatment from the company’s developers.

However, it wasn’t an Android One smartphone, one of the first Asus devices to make a switch to pure Android.

Another interesting characteristic of this handset was its pure vanilla Android.

This is a big surprise for a 2018 phone, especially when the company doesn’t need to comply with Google Android One requests.

Camera shootout: Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus vs Sony Xperia 1 II

While Sony sticks with 12MP sensors across the board, Samsung has a 64MP zoom option for extra detail, albeit relying on a hybrid software approach to its 3x zoom.

The S20 Plus offers consistent image quality and processing across all three of its cameras, the software does everything you want, and the phone offers good HDR and Night Mode options.

The Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus and Sony Xperia 1 II rely on long exposure night modes for shooting in the dark, resulting in some blur and loss of accuracy.

The Google Pixel 4 and Galaxy S20 are the most secure Android phones

The Nokia 5.3 is part of Google's Android One program, meaning it's guaranteed to get two years of Android updates and three years of monthly security patches.

You don't get the official guarantee of updates that you do with Google's Pixel 4, but Samsung's recent performance in these regards has made us confident in the S20's overall security.

On top of this, Google releases updates to the security model at the beginning of every month for the people who build Android phones to apply to its software.

Disney’s Face-Swapping Technology Is the Most Convincing Yet

That’s why Disney is going against the grain and dumping its money into face-swapping technology that looks convincing even at high resolutions.

Disney famously used face-swapping technology to digitally insert Peter Cushing and Carrie Fischer into new Star Wars movies.

It’s only natural for Disney to invest in the technology, as it could open the door to new stories with old or dead actors.

VIDEO In a new paper, Disney Research Studios described how its face-swapping tech works.

Unlike typical deepfake software that relies on low-resolution images and static landmarks, Disney’s tech uses 1024 x 1024 models with advanced lighting and stabilization technology to create convincing large images and videos.

We Need Smaller Smartphones, Bricks Are Not For Everyone

Apple will allegedly release a 5.4-inch iPhone 12, so it will not only have a phone with a 4.7-inch display to offer (the iPhone SE 2), but a 5.4-inch one as well.

It's really hard to find flagship-grade phones with a display under 6.5 inches in size, while those with displays smaller than 6 inches are almost extinct.

Let's first say that not a single major smartphone manufacturer is offering a flagship-grade phone with a display smaller than 5.7 inches.

That's all great, many people do want a large phone for that reason, amongst others.

Now, it doesn't really matter how thin the bezels are when you put such a huge display on a phone, the phone will be large.

Samsung updates the 2019 Galaxy Tab A 10.1 and 8.0 to Android 10 with One UI 2.0

Cheap Android tablets still exist, and Samsung's Galaxy Tab A line is one of the most prominent (and long-running) proponents of such products.

The company is now continuing its Android 10 update march with a couple of such cheap tablets, namely the 2019 versions of the Tab A 10.1 and Tab A 8.0.

The Galaxy Tab A 10.1 is getting the new software build T515XXU4BTFK, while the Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is receiving build P205DXU5BTFB.

Interestingly, the Galaxy Tab S6, S5e, and S4 got updates to Android 10 with One UI 2.1, but it looks like the more affordable Tab A series members don't deserve the .1 jump.

The updates will hopefully make their way to the Wi-Fi only versions of the two Galaxy Tab A (2019) sizes soon.
