POCO M4 5G launched with poor camera setup

Image
A few days after the presentation of Poco F4 GT , Xiaomi presented Poco M4 5G in India , an entry-level product but not poor in the specification. The Pro version , we recall, was presented in November last year. To keep the price low, Poco has made a rather unusual choice: instead of abounding with cameras, which in this segment cannot necessarily be particularly performing, Poco has placed “just” two on the back so as to concentrate the efforts on the rest of the data sheet . The result is a smartphone with a large and defined display , sufficiently fast memories, a connectivity compartment that, apart from NFC, lacks nothing and a large battery , with the plus of the IP52 certification which, despite not putting who knows how much shelter from unpleasant encounters with liquids, it is still a peace of mind that a large part of the competition cannot afford to offer. It was made official in India where it will arrive on May 5 in three colors, Cool Blue, Power Black and Poco Yellow,

The United States will send Phoenix Ghost to the frontline

Image
A few days ago, we learned about the details of the $800 million package of weapons the United States wants to hand over to Ukraine. It will include a brand new Phoenix Ghost tactical drone, designed specifically for Ukraine by the United States Air Force. The U.S. will certainly provide Ukraine with over 121 Phoenix Ghost tactical unmanned aerial systems manufactured by AEVEX Aerospace. It was officially announced by the Pentagon, while an official of the Department of Defense revealed that the new drone “was quickly developed by the Air Force in response to Ukraine’s requests. These words were later corrected by the Pentagon press secretary, who said the drone was built before Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24. It is said that this drone was developed in consideration of the requirements that correspond very precisely to what the Ukrainians now need in the Donbass. There is no question that this is an example of a kamikaze drone attack directly hitting the target. We know that th

Logitech Lift, a mouse at 57 degrees

Image
Lift is a vertical mouse that is sold in both left-handed and right-handed versions. It costs 69.99 euros and is available in three colors. The last two years have been a challenge for health, but not only because of the coronavirus epidemic. Forced to work from home, we have had to compromise on ergonomics , typing for long hours on laptops, without external monitors at the right height, on uncomfortable chairs, or with mice that don’t fit well in the hand. Logitech’s latest mouse, announced today, tries to fix at least this last point and does it from a new angle. One of 57 degrees , to be exact. Lift is a vertical mouse that joins the company’s Ergo series of ergonomic devices and is sold in both left-handed and right-handed versions. It costs 69.99 euros and can be purchased from today in three different colors on the manufacturer’s website or at its usual distributors. What makes it special? Instead of having the buttons at the top, the Lift buttons are on a 57 degree inclined pla

Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus is would be engraved by TSMC

Image
Disappointed by the yields and quality of Samsung’s EUV engraving, the American Qualcomm would have accelerated the launch of the “Plus” version of its high-end mobile chip Snapdragon 8 to switch to TSMC. And offer an updated version that is more energy efficient. The “+” version of Qualcomm’s high-end mobile processor could be more than a small update this year. While Qualcomm has been offering a slightly refined version of its SoC in the middle/end of the year for a few years, the American would have advanced the launch schedule of its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus to May for quality reasons. After years at TSMC, Qualcomm trusted Samsung last year for the 4 nm EUV engraving of its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. However, in addition to yields that would not satisfy Qualcomm (some rumors report 35% at Samsung and 70% at TSMC), the first tests also show that the chip heats up too much, and too quickly. Not all 4nm prints are created equal, and TSMC still seems to be the king in all areas. The Snapdragon

Vivo S15e Comes With Fast Charging

Vivo S15e : Vivo Vivo announces the premiere of another medium-harbinger – Vivo S15e. On its website, the manufacturer revealed the appearance of the phone. There will be three color versions to choose from, and the characteristic feature of smartphones will be a large, rectangular camera holder with two lens glasses. However, the cameras will be triple, while in the front we will see a screen with a droplet note. The banner revealed by Vivo indicates that the Vivo S15e will have a battery charging system working with a power of 66 W. In the website, there has mentioned a processor made from the 5 nm lithographic process. Most likely it will be the Samsung Exynos 1080. It is also known that the processor will be supported by the memory in the set of 12 + 256 GB – but it is not known if it will be the only proposition. I suspect not. It is also unofficially known that Vivo S15e will receive a 4700 mAh battery, and the display of this phone will have a 6.44 inch diagonal. Everything will

The Shiny Xiaomi Civi 1S Is Coming Soon!

Image
photo: Xiaomi Xiaomi confirmed – on April 21, the Civi 1S will have its Chinese premiere. On this occasion, we got some official photos showing that the new model will be available in white and purple. The Civi series focuses primarily on looks – the first model in this series, Xiaomi Civi, was advertised as “the most beautiful smartphone”. This is, of course, a subjective issue, but you have to admit that the manufacturer did his best. The sparkling, color-shimmering casing definitely stands out from other smartphones, and describing the available color variants simply as “white” or “purple” seems to be a strong understatement. Xiaomi Civi could also boast dimensions – 4500 mAh battery was able to fit in a housing with a thickness of 6.98 mm, in addition, the whole weighs only 166 g. Xiaomi Civi 1S is quite similar to last year’s predecessor – it is supposed to be similarly slim and light, we also see a familiar camera layout. There are rumors about a better processor – this time it i

What are the best Xiaomi smartphones in 2022?

Image
Born eleven years ago, Xiaomi has come a long way since its beginnings as a small unknown manufacturer very inspired by Apple. The brand has managed to build a separate identity and has since diversified considerably, with smartphones as the focal point of its catalog. You can now find Xiaomi products everywhere, from scooters around the corner to the smart bulb in the ceiling light. The brand’s DNA has not changed, however, a Xiaomi smartphone focuses above all on finding the right value for money, with special attention paid to the software. The MIUI interface is in its thirteenth version and offers one of the strongest biases in the Android universe. It won’t please everyone, but the care that goes into it is undeniable. With 12 Pro, the Chinese manufacturer affirms its status as a market juggernaut with a design worthy of its prestige. The Xiaomi 12 Pro incorporates a 6.73-inch OLED screen offering a definition in WQHD + or 3200×1440. The refresh is able to climb up to 120 Hz but

According to a new study, adopting a healthy lifestyle can protect against dementia (a mental illness that results in memory loss). According to researchers, men and women who adopt a healthy lifestyle not only live longer but are also protected from Alzheimer’s or dementias. Dr Claudian Dahana, who led the study, said that eating vegetables, berries, whole grains, and minimally fried foods, exercising regularly, and keeping oneself mentally active can prevent Alzheimer’s disease or mental retardation. He said that reading books, visiting museums and crossword puzzles or other such mental activities are very useful for staying mentally active.

Burning behind the breastbone is called heartburn

Image
Heartburn is a very unpleasant condition. Many people must have felt the characteristic burning behind the breastbone when bending down and after a hearty lunch. What causes heartburn and what does this symptom result from? How to deal with heartburn and what are the therapeutic options in this case? Heartburn is an unpleasant burning sensation behind the breastbone in the esophagus. This may be accompanied by a sour taste in the mouth and the burning sensation may extend up to the throat. Heartburn is caused by abnormal reflux of acid in the stomach into the esophagus. The esophagus is not adapted to the acid content and causes irritation and in some cases even deeper damage. Chest pain and heartburn – differentiation Heartburn may be accompanied by chest pain which in some cases resembles the angina of a heart attack. It is worth being aware of this, as these causes of chest pain should be differentiated. In the event of the regurgitation of gastric contents, pain is provoked by a co

Apple Watch to measure blood pressure, temperature and blood glucose:what's new with watchOS 9?

Image
watchOS 9 , the new version of the Apple Watch operating system, will make its debut during WWDC 2022 scheduled for June 6. The news awaited for this update are many, but together with some surprises, there is also the disappointment for all those functions that were expected to be found and for which instead we will have to wait a few more years. The first function we won’t find is the one related to blood pressure monitoring. In fact, it seems that Apple has encountered some obstacles in the development and implementation of this technology, which according to reliable sources will not arrive before 2024. Finally, a restyling of many of the watchOS 8 dials is planned, designed to optimize the use of space by adding more complications, and a generic improvement of the user experience when the watch is in Power Reserve mode ( low consumption). This mode allows the user to save battery by turning off all functions except the timekeeping, while the new mode is expected to include a more
