Apple’s battery case for the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR are finally here.Apple has been rumored to be working on new iPhone battery cases for a while now, so the announcement isn’t all that surprising — but it’s still nice for 2018 iPhone owners who can now get a case that doubles as an extra battery.The cases will be available in either black or white and feature a design similar to that of the previous battery case.with its distinctive battery bump on the back.They’re available for $130 and can be purchased straight from Apple’s website.There is one major difference between older battery cases and the new ones: The newer battery cases support Qi charging, so you can still wirelessly charge your iPhone, plus you can charge the battery case with your wireless charger.
YouTube has a new message for creators looking to participate in dangerous or potentially harmful stunts, like the Bird Box or Tide Pod stunts: don’t.The company revealed new policies that creators must follow when uploading content, and one of the biggest changes is a section dedicated entirely to dangerous pranks.YouTube has previously addressed pranks in its harmful and dangerous content category of its overall policies, but seems to have added the new section following a series of disturbing Bird Box challenge videos.YouTube creators have a history of participating in dangerous challenges — including Jake Paul driving blindfolded to participate in the Bird Box challenge, teens eating poisonous Tide Pods for the Tide Pod challenge, and even some creators alluding to drugging their girlfriends on camera with natural sexual enhancement pills — all in the name of content.YouTube is home to many beloved viral challenges and pranks, but we need to make sure what’s funny doesn’t cross the line into also being harmful or dangerous.We don’t allow pranks that make victims believe they’re in serious physical danger — for example, a home invasion prank or a drive-by shooting prank.
When Sony announced the A6500 APS-C mirrorless in 2016, I took it as the successor to the A6300, despite the fact that that camera had only launched about six months earlier.Because the A6300 lacked one incredibly important feature -- in-body image stabilization -- and I figured Sony was moving quickly to rectify that.But it turns out the new A6400 is the update for the A6300, packing what sounds like high-performance autofocus (AF) and improved photo and video quality, but in pretty much the same old body, lacking in-body image stabilization and using the (deservedly) much-maligned short-lived battery.The new hybrid autofocus system has the same 425 phase-detection points as the A6300, but bumps the contrast-detection areas from 169 to 425.In addition, Sony threw in some AI to help with object recognition, and now the company claims it handles real-time eye tracking and has improved object recogition and faster AF subject lock.Animal eye tracking will come in a future firmware update.
We’ve only just started 2019 but the rumor mill for this year’s iPhone is already churning at a comfortable pace.It was just last week that @OnLeaks alarmed people with a supposed render of an iPhone 11 prototype with a hideous triple camera setup.Back from September 2019, I bring you the very 1st and very early glimpse at which I guess Apple will unveil as iPhoneXI!!!Yes, time has already come to meet the new iPhone through gorgeous 5K renders made on behalf of new coming Partner @digitindia -> the render is just off and it’d look better in person, but let’s just say it’s not my cup of teaThis week, @OnLeaks is partnering with Indian publication CompareRaja to show off another prototype design that looks a lot more reasonable:
There's a new iPhone 11 leak of a render that gives us an idea how Apple's 2019 smartphone may appear.The good news: it looks a lot better than before.Last week, notable leaker @OnLeaks revealed a render of a possible prototype for the upcoming iPhone 11 displaying a triple-camera setup set in a square mounting.Today, he released another rendering created with partner CompareRaja that shows off a trio of lenses in a horizontal strip – which could be an alternate prototype for Apple’s next smartphone.Shortly after the first leak, a report from the Wall Street Journal claimed that a three-camera iPhone was coming – but it might only be the highest-end (like the iPhone XS Max-equivalent) of three models Apple will announce.The other pair of phones will only have two cameras, which means these leaks likely only refer to the biggest version coming this year.
Sony has unveiled its new Alpha a6400, a mirrorless camera targeted at creators and vloggers who need something more substantial than their phone, but who may not be ready for a large, complicated camera.The new a6400 caters to its target customers with the inclusion of a 180-degree rotating LCD, making it possible for users to record themselves manually while also viewing the built-in display.The new Sony mirrorless camera features a 24.2-megapixel APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor joined by the BIONZ X image processor, a 180-degree touch LCD, and what Sony calls the fastest ever auto focus acquisition speed of 0.02 seconds.As well, the a6400 features 425 phase detection and contrast detection auto focus points that span across 84-percent of the camera’s image area.The model’s focusing abilities are rounded out by advanced real-time Eye AF, plus there’s real-time object tracking for ensuring the subject of the video or images remains in focus at all times.In addition to supporting 4K Ultra HD video recording and an advanced level of focusing speed, the Sony a6400 also supports continuous shooting at 11fps with the mechnical shutter and 8fps when using continuous AF/AE tracking.
After taking the title for the top-selling full frame camera brand, Sony is funneling that technology into a smaller, APS-C mirrorless shooter.On January 15, Sony unveiled the A6400, a mirrorless camera that takes some of the same technology inside the full-frame A7 III and A9 series and repackages those features into a $900 camera.The A6400 uses a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor with the Sony E-Mount, but incorporates autofocus performance of the brand’s pricier models.Sony claims the A6400 has the world’s fastest autofocus, locking on to subjects in as little as 0.02 seconds using a 425-point phase- and contrast-detection system that covers 84 percent of the sensor area.A.I.-based object tracking will also allow the camera to focus on the eyes for wildlife and pets, in a firmware update coming this summer.Eye AF (on humans) has been around in Sony cameras for a while now, but the A6400 enhances it with improved accuracy and speed thanks to A.I.
Sony just announced the a6400, a refreshed compact mirrorless camera ideal for creators, specifically vloggers.The a6400 comes with a touchscreen that flips all the way around — 180 degrees — so you get a vivid, easily adjustable preview of how you’ll look as you’re filming your latest video.Otherwise, Sony’s latest mirrorless is a compact camera full of incremental improvements that add up to a compelling sub-$1,000 package.Like its predecessors, the a6400 inherits the same hybrid autofocus system Sony also uses in its bigger, more expensive Alpha cameras (like the A7 III), to accomplish what the company claims is the “world’s fastest 0.02 second AF acquisition speed,” admittedly slightly faster than the 0.05 second speed Sony’s A-series cams claimed before.Quick subject acquisition is another of the a6400’s headlining features.Aided by 425 autofocus points (for both contrast and phase detection), it’s what (on paper) should make the a6400 ideal for quick-reaction scenarios (like action or sports photography).
Facial recognition is used in tech products to do things like unlock your phone, add cool camera effects and help you play with your robot dog.That's why the American Civil Liberties Union has teamed up with more than 85 human rights groups to ask big tech companies not to provide face surveillance technology to the US government.The coalition sent letters to Microsoft, Amazon and Google to make sure its stance on the issue was heard.You may've heard stories about the Chinese government experimenting with facial recognition technology to monitior citizens.A study from May 2018 found that facial recognition tech used by the UK's Metropolitan Police was inaccurate in 98 percent of cases.But that hasn't stopped the US Department of Homeland Security from testing facial recognition around the White House.
I took two smartphones with me on a trip to Hawaii, and I ended up happier with the cheaper phone's photos.The $800 Google Pixel 3 is often crowned as the best smartphone camera, but I found the OnePlus 6T that starts at $550 took better photos.The following is mostly my own personal opinion, so it's fine if you prefer the Pixel 3's photos.I recently went on a trip to Hawaii and thought it'd be the perfect place to take some photos with two different smartphones I brought with me.But after taking a few side-by-side shots with both devices, I'm starting to doubt Google's dominance in the smartphone camera game.Check out some photos I took with both smartphones and decide for yourself which ones look better:
After the rumors earlier today, Sony has officially taken the wraps off its new mid-range Alpha A6400 APS-C mirrorless camera.As the name suggests, the A6400 is not a direct replacement for the Alpha A6500, but instead replaces the Alpha A6300, with the ageing Alpha A5100 and A6000 remaining in Sony's mirrorless line-up.The Alpha A6400 features a 24.2MP APS-C Exmor CMOS sensor with a front-end LSI, which combined with the same BIONZ X image processor that the Alpha A9, A7R III and A7 III enjoys, it sees the A6400 deliver an ISO sensitivity up to 102,400 and processing speeds 1.8x faster than the A6300.With the Alpha A6400, Sony's claiming the world's fastest autofocus at just 0.02 sec, while for the first time on an Alpha camera, Sony is introducing Real-Time Eye AF with AI-based subject recognition.This promises to be even more accurate than Sony's current Eye AF system, which now features a right or left eye priority setting in the menu.Not only that, but the A6400 also gets Real-Tim AF Tracking with AI-based subject recognition.
It looks like Oppo is set to reveal a revolutionary new piece of tech that allows for a 10x optical zoom within the narrow confines of a smartphone.According to an invite sent out to some members of the Chinese press, Oppo will be showing this off in a media event on Wednesday, January 16.According to TechSpot, the tagline at the bottom of the invite roughly translates to “10 times the view, see you soon” — clearly implying an advance in zoom tech.This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Oppo barge to the forefront in camera zoom technology either.Back in 2017, it showed off a 5x optical zoom for smartphones, and though the tech never made its way to any consumer phones, it’s possible Oppo wanted to refine and advance it before releasing it.This level of optical zoom would have previously been thought to be impossible on such a small device — but Oppo’s method of achieving lossless zoom is pretty ingenious.
Today we’re taking a peek at what it’ll mean for the Samsung Galaxy S10 to release in its entirety come early March, 2019.This is the likely timeframe for the release of the Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung Galaxy S10E, and Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, after all.At that time we’ll get three new phones and, when it comes down to it, not a whole lot of change from one year to the next.Those of you that pay close attention to the Samsung Galaxy S line of phones and indeed the entire industry might be saying “HOW DARE YOU!” Especially when it’s also assumed that because I’ve written about Apple in the past without vitriol, that I must be a hardened addict.The Samsung Galaxy S10, E, and Plus will bring some of the best smartphones to the world that’ve ever existed.They’ll have such features as super-great cameras, displays that cascade over their sides, and in-display fingerprint readers.
SEATTLE — Despite recent issues with one of its instruments, the Hubble Space Telescope is expected to last at least another five years.A new report suggests that the iconic spacecraft has a strong chance of enduring through the mid-2020s."Right now, all of the subsystems and the instruments have a reliability exceeding 80 percent through 2025," Hubble mission head Thomas Brown of the Space Telescope Science Institute in Maryland told presented the results of the engineering report on the telescope's reliability here at the semiannual meeting of the American Astronomical Society on Jan. 10.His assessment comes after a hardware problem required engineers to suspend operations with Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) on Tuesday, Jan. 8.[Hubble in Pictures: Astronomers' Top Picks (Photos)]

It’s easy to ignore 2018’s flagships when 2019’s smartphones are arriving soon.That said, Walmart offers 399 reasons to take a second look at the underrated LG G7 ThinQ.The deal saves you $350.99 from the phone’s normal price tag.You can either have the G7 ThinQ shipped to your house or a nearby Walmart store.To recap, the G7 ThinQ features a 6.1-inch IPS display with 3,120 x 1,440 resolution, dual rear 16-megapixel cameras, a front 8MP camera, Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 3,000mAh battery.The phone also features a headphone jack with a Hi-Fi Quad DAC, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and Android 8.0 Oreo.
A smartphone screen is a wonder of the world.In some ways, it’s as good as human biology allows.The only way to get more information from a smartphone screen is to bring the pixels closer to our eyes, with the device somehow mounted on our heads rather than holding it in our hands.When it arrives, experiences you’ve only seen in the movies will become the stuff of everyday life.Think of watching a wave from the ocean hit a sea-wall with a narrow opening: The way the straight wave becomes a ripple spreading out on the other side is the same as what happens to rays of light when they go through a hole.You can play with this by making your own “pinhole camera” and looking through it at text far away.
2018 was an interesting year for smartphones: we saw numerous brands try different approaches to making their products more compelling and diverse than before, including Vivo’s dual-display Nex 2, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition that charges lightning-fast, and the slider-equipped Oppo Find X.Samsung has a reputation for sticking with what works well – case in point, its Galaxy S flagship series and Galaxy Note series, which have only iterated on successful designs and features over the past couple of years.It tried to do something vastly different with the Galaxy A9: it’s a mid-range phone with four rear cameras for increased flexibility for photography, and was the world’s first of its kind.Unlike most of our in-depth reviews, I’m just going to dive into the camera performance on this device.That should allow for reasonably quick performance, and indeed, the phone handles most apps without much lag or long load times.Unfortunately, the camera app is awfully sluggish, to the point that I couldn’t get a single usable photo from a friend’s party outdoors during the day.
Confirming rumors that have circulated for the past month, Apple today officially released a series of Smart Battery Cases for the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max.Although third-party accessory maker Mophie showed its own Juice Pack Access cases at CES last week, Apple’s will likely be the first officially licensed battery cases to hit the market for these particular models.The new Smart Battery Cases sell for $129, a $30 premium over earlier versions, and come in two colors: white or black.Each has a silicone rubber exterior with a bulging backpack-like hump below the rear camera, and includes a Lightning port for recharging.Button covers on the sides protect each iPhone’s volume and sleep/wake controls.Interestingly, the latest Smart Battery Cases are now capable of being recharged with Qi-certified chargers, and promise “even faster” charging with wired USB-PD chargers.
