Hello, dear readers of the best mobile portal Treshbox! Today, your attention is invited to a collection of the best news of the week, but not described on Tresh. So in this release:
- Samsung introduces a new budget line of mobile devices - Galaxy J.
- A wonderful invention will tell you how to eat.
- Budget smartphone with a 16 megapixel front camera.
- Flying smartphones are already under development.
- And a lot of other interesting things. I ask for a cut!
From the events of the past year, Samsung understood the following: it is necessary to reduce the number of lines of smartphones and increase the budget segments. In such thoughts, it was decided to create a new budget line J, the first device of which is named J1 (I wonder if there will be a J7 smartphone). The screen of the smartphone will get a pretty decent diagonal - 4.3 inches (well, that's not 3.5 or 3.2). RAM is 1 GB, also not bad. Built-in memory will be 4 GB. The processor has a clock frequency of 1.2 GHz (Marvell PXDA1908), allows you to use a 4G network. The device will receive two cameras: the front with a 2 megapixel sensor and the main 5 megapixel. Android operating system 4.4. The official price and the start date of sales are not yet known.
In California, scientists have developed a device that looks like a patch, which allows you to measure heart rate and oxygen level in the blood. The novelty received red and green OLED elements, which simplifies the operation of the oximeter. The compact size of the device, ease of use and accuracy of readings are not the main advantage of the device. The main thing is that the production of the device does not require large expenses, the developers of this miracle oximeter said.
How to eat right will tell you the BitBite system
The latest development by nutritionists will tell you what, when and how much to eat. The principle of operation is simple: the device is attached to the ear and monitors the sound of a crunch of food in the mouth. So the device can determine what it ate and how many calories a person consumed. In addition, the device tells you at what time it is better to eat a loaf, and at what oatmeal. Along with the device comes an application for smartphones, the so-called food diary. Together, this BitBite system will make people chew food more thoroughly. The price of new items will not exceed 159 US dollars.
The Elephone P5000 smartphone is priced at $ 147
Elephone, a Chinese mobile phone maker, recently launched a new smartphone, the Elephone P5000, for $ 147. From the pleasant moments we can say about the presence of a powerful processor with a clock frequency of 1.7 GHz and 2 GB of RAM. The device received a screen with a diagonal of 5 inches. It is worth noting the presence of a powerful front camera with a 16 megapixel sensor (obviously the rate in the device is made on a selfie). But the main camera received an 8 megapixel sensor. The device does not support fourth-generation LTE networks. The operating system is sweet Android 4.4 KitKat.
Transformation: from an ordinary smartphone, a powerful system unit
The new Andromium system will turn your Android smartphone into a full-fledged system unit. What is needed for this? Twenty nine dollars in your pocket and that’s it! The user will need to buy a special docking station with several connectors. Included is a mobile application. The smartphone is installed on the docking station, the Andromium application is launched, the station is connected to the monitor via the HDMI port. Also, for convenience, you need a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse (however, they can be connected via USB to the dock). Everything, the system unit is ready for work!
The familiar Windows interface with the addition of iOS design will appear on the monitor. This system so far supports only Samusng Galaxy S3, S4, Note2, Note3, Note4, HTC One (M7 / M8), LG Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Motorola Nexus 6 devices, but developers are working on implementing support on other smartphones. As I said, the Andromium station costs only $ 29. You can try it.
Smartphones of the future are being developed super-thin, super-powerful and even super-flying! At the University of Delft, an unmanned aerial drone is being developed, well, not completely unmanned, it will be controlled by a smartphone that will be on board the so-called “pigeon”. This development provides many advantages for the real world. Viewing a mailbox, tracking children going to school or for a walk, looking from a bird's eye view on traffic jams in Moscow, etc. This will be the smartest “carrier pigeon”, since it is hung with all kinds of sensors, cameras, it will have Internet access and voice control. There are no physical barriers for this, there are state ones, because in many countries for this kind of drones permission is required, like in real airplanes. But I think that not everyone is ready to let go of their smartphone alone through the window, like a parrot who is bored of sitting in a cage. Yes, and what will happen if the battery dies ...
