Qualcomm aims to enhance your listening experience with Snapdragon Sound technology
Let’s get to Qualcomm because I think the company is trying to solve one of our main problems with Bluetooth audio. Quality and Latency. We knew the company released certain audio innovations over the years, but now they’re releasing something new. Yesterday, the company announced Snapdragon Sound, which offers a seamless and immersive audio experience for a variety of products such as phones and wearables. Basically, they aim to optimize wireless audio so that it feels like it’s wired by adding support for 24-bit audio, better coupling, reduced latency, and clear voice quality. Qualcomm claims that this suite of audio innovations is compatible with Bluetooth latencies as low as 89 milliseconds, which means it is much better for playing games or streaming content. Now there is a catch. This is actually more like an ecosystem, so there is a new Qualcomm DAC that has a number of interesting features that you will need your phone to include in them. Devices with the Snapdragon Sound platform should hit the market soon, with Xiaomi being one of the first companies to launch them.
The Samsung Galaxy A52 5G launch is just around the corner as the specs are supplied by a retailer
Let’s talk to Samsung about the A series that we don’t normally do, but the Galaxy A51 was the second best smartphone of 2020. Yesterday we got some renders of the phone from Evan Blass and now we have more details on how it is has just been listed by a retailer in Saudi Arabia. According to the listing, this phone has a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a 32-megapixel selfie shooter. However, it’s not clear whether or not it offers a high refresh rate. The Snapdragon 750G SoC, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable storage, a 4500 mAh battery and a quad camera are located on the back. Speaking of cameras, it looks like you’re getting a 64-megapixel main sensor, as well as a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, a 5-megapixel macro, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. According to the listing, this phone should be priced around $ 439 and ship from March 7th, in Saudi Arabia of course. I mean, it sounds pretty solid to me, but these deliveries sound a bit dubious as we expect the start date towards the end of March according to previous leaks.
Apple is reportedly preparing an “iPad Mini Pro” for launch later this year
We could soon see iPads and MacBooks with OLED displays
Let’s put the spotlight on Apple and I’m very excited about these updates. We know the company is making the switch to mini LED displays very soon, pretty much this month with the new iPad Pro that we expect. However, according to a new report from DigiTimes, Cupertino plans to switch to OLED as early as next year. And yes, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of this, but it’s nice to see the leaks for this stay constant so we should expect that. According to a Korean blog, an iPad Mini Pro will stay in Part 2 of the “Design Stage” after it has passed the R&D and planning phase. The report mentions that the design validation test should be passed after that, which means we should surely get this sometime this year. Apparently, this iPad Mini Pro could rock an 8.3-inch display, reducing the height of the regular iPad Mini but making it a bit wider. Other things we could get are a high refresh rate panel, the same dual camera we got on the iPad Pro, and either a mini LED or an OLED panel. Of course, we should also expect the A14 Bionic and the support of Apple Pencil in the second half of 2020.
Google’s upcoming product launches: Pixel Buds in mid-April, a phone on June 11th
For the hottest news today, let’s talk on Google. Because as soon as these pixel leaks start, they can’t stop. Last week we had some pictures of the Pixel 5a from OnLeaks showing the entire design, but we were expecting it to fall around August with Android 12. Well, now we have a new tweet from Jon Prosser where he claims we should wait for new Pixel Buds to be released in mid-April and then Google has a phone announcement scheduled for June 11th, but he’s not sure what it is. The reason we mention the 5a is because of the leak we got last week, along with the fact that this is closer to the launch date of the original Pixel 3a compared to last year’s 4a. According to OnLeaks, this phone has a 6.4-inch OLED display at FHD +, as well as a larger oven on the back that houses a 12-megapixel primary camera and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens. Other features include a headphone jack … yaayyy …, 5G, the same fingerprint scanner on the back and the hole in the front. So it looks like Google is getting rid of the smaller Pixel-a phone and updating the Pixel 4a 5G. This makes sense considering that the flagship is a smaller device. We’ll see how we get it, we’re still a few months away and if it’s Google it will most likely have leaked.
