Samsung Galaxy Note 10 may miss out on the new 64MP camera sensor

By | May 10th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Just after Samsung announced a new 64MP camera sensor that could appear in next year's Galaxy S11, hopes of the sensor coming to the Galaxy Note 10 later this year were dashed by a reputable Samsung device leaker.

"To be sure, Samsung Note10 will not use 64MP CMOS," Tweeted  @UniverseIce, but also noting "This is not necessarily a bad thing."

The new 64MP camera sensor appeared alongside a 48MP sensor in a Samsung Newsroom post on May 9, expanding the company's lineup of sensors with 0.8-micron pixels.… Read the full article

HIGH END 2019: Living Voice R25A

By | May 10th, 2019|Categories: AV Hub|

Living Voice unveiled its new R25A… so-named because it celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the Living Voice Auditorium loudspeaker, which is the company’s ‘entry-level’ design and now supersedes the Auditorium R3, at HIGH END 2019.

But perhaps the bigger (in every sense of the word) release at HIGH END 2019 was that of the Living Voice Vox Basso subwoofer, which in Living Voice’s demo room was being used with the company’s Vox Palladian horns. ‘With a smaller footprint than the Vox Elysian, the new Vox Basso is ready to partner with either the Vox Olympian or Vox Palladian horn loudspeakers,’ said Kevin Scott of Living Voice.… Read the full article

OnePlus 7 Pro benchmarks have popped up with great, but not record-breaking performance

By | May 10th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The OnePlus 7 Pro is showing its immense power, even if the new Android phone hasn’t officially launched yet. The latest leak for the new OnePlus phone is a pair of GeekBench benchmark scores tweeted by @rquandt, and they’re  showing excellent performance, though not quite the best performance of any Android phone.

The first benchmark shows a single-core score of 3,384 for the OnePlus 7 Pro's Snapdragon 855 chipset. It also scored 10,494 for the multi-core rating. The second benchmark is higher in both regards, with a 3,517 single-core score and a 10,811 multi-core score.… Read the full article

3 ways Android Q is being built for 5G

By | May 10th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Android Q has a lot of exciting UX additions and improvements, like Dark Mode, but it also has some under-the-hood additions to help usher in the era of 5G phones. Chief among them, we learned at Google IO 2019, are new capabilities for app developers to detect user data download speed and latency, as well as whether their connections are metered by carriers.

Google’s Pixel 3a isn’t just cheaper, but also easier to fix than the Pixel 3

By | May 10th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Google's newest phones just launched this week, and they dramatically undercut the prices of other flagships on our best phones list, including Google's own Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. There are some trade-offs in getting the new Pixel 3a down to $399, but repairability isn't one of them, as the phone earned a 6 out of 10 score from iFixit.

The Google Pixel 3a is easy to open, as it uses a spongy material instead of the type of adhesive usually found in premium phones, according to the iFixit team.… Read the full article

dCS Bartok Impresses with JPS Labs and HIFIMAN at High End 2019

By | May 10th, 2019|Categories: Innerfidelity|

As an audio component, you know you have hit the big time when you have a whole room to yourself at High End Munich 2019.

No amps, no speakers, no turntables: just a whole very quiet (!) private room with four dCS Bartók upsampling DAC/streamer/headphone amps listening stations and what presents like a seemingly infinite TIDAL playlist. (Current pricing in Sterling £10K or £12K with headphone amp) or $13,500 USD/$15,000 USD with built-in headphone amp).

I auditioned the Bartók using Johnny Cash (with June Carter) Live at San Quentin, and two of the best headphones I know: the JPS Labs Abyss AB-1266 Phi and the HiFiMan Susvara.Read the full article
