Intel Announces 11th Generation Core H-Series Mobile Processors for Gaming Laptops
Qualcomm’s second generation ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is bigger and 50% faster
Fossil Gen 5 LTE is priced at $ 349 and allows you to take calls right on the smartwatch
Jabra Elite 85t is getting four new color options at CES 2021
Yes, CES is still happening, but before we dive into more specific launches, let’s talk about some of our favorite single-out announcements. Starting with Qualcomm when the company was just launching the second generation of its ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. This new sensor is 77% larger than its predecessor and works 50% faster. This upgraded sensor is reportedly set to debut with the S21 when history repeats itself. Intel has just announced its 11th generation of the Core H series of mobile chips, which run gaming laptops with a 10 nm process and support clock speeds of up to 5 GHz, PCIe Gen 4, Thunderbolt 4 and more functions. But 10nm huh Intel? The Jabra Elite 85Ts, which are some of my favorite earbuds, just got 4 new colorways including gold, copper, black and gray in case you are waiting for a change. Fossil just announced the Gen 5 LTE, which features a slim 45mm design and now allows you to take calls right on the smartwatch, which is pretty good for $ 349. And folks, there’s so much more CES 2021 coverage on Pocketnow.com, but we have specific articles for each of these products and their details in the links in the description.
AMD is releasing mobile processors of the Ryzen 5000 series based on Zen 3
NVIDIA introduces RTX 30 series laptop GPUs and GeForce RTX 3060 desktop graphics
Let’s keep talking about CES, we know a lot of you guys like it when we cover PC parts, and well, Nvidia and AMD are back. Starting with AMD, they have just launched their Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors. These are divided into two families, the H and U series. The H series is aimed at gaming enthusiasts in 6- and 8-core versions with top clock rates of 4.8 GHz. This is interesting when you consider that Intel is pushing 5 GHz. When it comes to the U series, these are aimed at ultra books and the rest of the mass market laptops. These range from 4 to 8 cores with almost the same base specs as some of the H-series, but only up to 4.4 GHz. AMD expects single-thread performance to be 23% higher and multi-thread performance to be increased by up to 17%. At Nvidia, the company just introduced the RTX 30 series laptop GPUs and an RTX 3060 desktop GPU. These are based on the 3rd generation Max Q technology and offer up to 2x ray tracing output. The new tensor cores should be twice as powerful. Overall, Nvidia is striving for higher efficiency, better performance and refined acoustics. This month alone, over 70 laptops with the RTX 30 series will be presented. So you can read all the details at the links below. For a minute I was like – are we sure about this number or is it 7? But no, 70 laptops.
HONOR announces MagicBook Pro, HONOR Volume 6
If we stick with CES, we’ll move on to Honor, knowing that the company became independent from Huawei a few months ago and has just announced its upcoming flagship products. The first thing we received was the Honor MagicBook Pro, which features a 16.1-inch display with a screen-to-body ratio of 90%. It is powered by a 10th generation Intel processor as well as 16 GB dual-channel DDR4 RAM and 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSD. When it comes to cooling, it has two fans and two heat pipes. It includes Bluetooth 5.0, an HDMI port, 3 USB A ports and a USB C port, as well as a headphone jack and a fingerprint sensor. It apparently charges up to 50% in just 30 minutes. When we turned to wearables, we also got the Honor Band 6 with a 1.47-inch AMOLED display that supports 10 training modes and 14 days of battery life. It brings 5 ATM water resistance and it brings a heart rate monitor, oxygen monitor, sleep and stress monitor and even a female bike tracker. There are three color options including Meteorite Black, Sandstone Gray and Coral Pink. Unfortunately, we haven’t received any information on price tags yet, but it should be in world markets very soon.
Is this the new design of the 2021 iPad Pro refresh?
Now let’s talk about Apple, and iPads in particular, since Cupertino is apparently planning an aggressive push here. There have been a lot of rumors lately about the upcoming iPads as we expect an update to the regular iPad and will soon have mini LED displays on the pros. Now we have some new CAD renders for both iPad Pro models from 91Mobiles and MySmartPrice. Starting with the larger model, it looks like it will offer almost the same design language as the current model with the boxy design and the single USB-C port as well as the smart connector for the keyboard. Together with the LiDAR sensor, the camera is still a double module. When it comes to the 11-inch version, it also looks like its predecessor that we got in 2020, but apparently it will be a few millimeters thinner and shorter. The CAD renders also show that we may get a Touch ID sensor similar to the one on the iPad Air, and you can notice it on the renders for the 12.9-inch iPad too. We expect these iPads to run on a variant of the A13 or A14 Bionic as well as a mini-LED display sometime this year. It seems clear that in the face of the pandemic, iPad sales have increased if Apple plans to take a wider boost and even get a more aggressive price tag.
The leak in the Samsung Galaxy S21 retail box confirms the lack of a charger
Samsung introduces the 5 nm-based Exynos 2100 flagship SoC that will power the Galaxy S21
And finally for the hottest news today, you guessed it. We are literally a couple of days away from Samsung’s Unpacked, but there is still a ton of leaks and information about how to unpack. Let’s start with something official, as Samsung is currently releasing the full teaser for the S21 series entitled “Welcome to the Everyday Epic”. It teases a lot of camera functions, mainly video, low light, and zoom. It shows the silhouette of the device and some software tricks. The company just announced the Exynos 2100, which will power the S21 depending on the region. It is a 5G capable chip based on a 5nm process and a tri-cluster core design that enables a 30% increase in multi-core performance and a 40% increase in graphics performance. It allows some crazy tricks like handling 6 cameras and an output at 200 MP resolution and handling 4K panels up to 120 Hz or QHD + at 144 Hz, but we won’t bore you with details, we have a special one Link for this in the description. Back on the S21, we have some new posters that show the design again, as well as the 5G features, the storage tiers and the camera. Now the poster that makes the most of the headlines is the one that shows the box, and as you can see, it’s very thin. That said, it’s pretty official that we’re not getting a charger or headphones this year. Go Green! And remember, you can already register for the S21 and get some benefits by using the first link in the description. So yeah, with this teaser and all the other posters, seriously, what’s left?
