  • Samsung Refreshes Its Line of Isocell Camera Modules

    Samsung today introduced a range of camera modules in its Isocell series of imaging sensors. Samsung’s Isocell technology isolates individual pixels from one another with physical barriers. This prevents color crosstalk between neighboring pixels, increases light sensitivity, and improves color fidelity in all lighting conditions. The four new sensors target different use cases. For example, the Iscocell Bright sensor is meant to deliver sharpness and color in low light; Isocell Fast is meant to sharply focus on moving objects; Isocell Slim targets the thinnest smartphones; and Isocell Dual sensors can be mixed and matched with other sensors to create unique camera experiences. Samsung didn’t specify when these camera sensor groups will reach consumer devices.

    Oaxis launches InkCase, an E ink display case for iPhone 7

    Oaxis launches InkCase, an E ink display case for iPhone 7

    Remember back in 2014 when the Yotaphone was launched with its innovate design by having an e-ink display on the back of the device? Unfortunately, the device never caught on along with the next iteration – the Yotaphone 2.

    Well today, Oaxis has announced the latest in its family of E-Ink cases. The InkCase i7 Plus for the iPhone 7 Plus is now live on the crowd funding platform Kickstarter. This scratch-resistant, waterproof smart case merges the functionality of an e-reader with your smartphone.

    Using the latest Carta 1.2 E Ink panel, which is claimed to be the most advanced E Ink screen available, the contrast is vastly improved where white is brighter and black is darker when compared to the E Ink Pearl used in most e-reader devices. This includes the Amazon Kindle.

    This super thin case adds only 4 mm of thickness to the iPhone 7 Plus, and is surprisingly light despite its smart capabilities. The screen area measures in  5.2”, and with its “Read It Now” function, users can archive downloaded articles from mobile browsers and apps, as well as multiple eBooks for the ultimate offline reading experience, all without draining their iPhone’s battery.

    Oaxis has listened and acted upon customer feedback on its previous models, and now the InkCase i7 Plus has the ability to offer push news functions: a self-learning algorithm to display news for individual users based on their preferred genre. This news function is also automatically transferred to the InkCase, so you no longer have to manually sync them. To the relief of all, the new case has the added benefit of eliminating distractions by automatically removing all ads and annoying links, images and texts.  To add a personal touch, users can further personalise their display wallpaper with a customisation template for live information widgets such as reminders, calendar, time or steps that day.

    The InkCase i7 Plus allows users to edit photos via the InkCase iOS application and Bluetooth technology and now features a selfie assistance feature. This is a real-time reflection of the rear camera view, so users can ensure they are in the frame to capture better quality selfies than they would if using the less impressive front-facing camera. The InkCase i7 Plus also features multiple other functionalities, including receiving push notifications, creating task lists, and tracking physical activities with the Health App integration.

    The InkCase i7 Plus’s memory is equipped with 128MB RAM and 256MB internal storage. With an IP67 rating, the case is also waterproof, dustproof and sand-proof and shockproof, you can be sure your device will be fully protected.

    The InkCase i7 Plus is available to early bird backers on Kickstarter from 28th June 2017 for just £70.22. The first production samples will be with backers (within just 1 month!) and will be available in black and white. The price of the InkCase i7 Plus following the campaign will be £125.45. Oh, and I want one!

  • Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 Platform Jumps to 14nm Process

    Qualcomm today announced the Snapdragon 450 Platform, a new entry in its mid-tier range of processors for high-volume devices. The Snapdragon 450 is the first 400 series chip to make use of Qualcomm’s 14nm process, which provides it with noticeable performance and efficiency gains over earlier chips. For example, Qualcomm says the 450 delivers four more hours of battery life when compared to the Snapdragon 435, and 25% faster CPU and graphics performance thanks to the paired Adreno 506 GPU. The Snapdragon 450 uses eight 64-bit ARM Cortex A53 cores clocked at up to 1.8 GHz. Qualcomm said market timing and availability prevented it from selecting ARM’s newer A55 core for the 450. The CPU and GPU improvement deliver an average 10-15% reduced launch latency for mobile apps, quicker 3D graphics rendering, and full HD+ playback on smartphone displays. The Snapdragon 450 supports Qualcomm’s X9 modem (Cat 6 LTE), which translates to download speeds up to 300 Mbps with 2×20 carrier aggregation and 64QAM. The improved Hexagon DSP and Aqstic Audio processing make the Snapdragon 450 a better option for media-focused handsets. For example, the 450 can support up to two 13-megapixel cameras for bokeh effects and real-time exposure/color measurements, or a single camera up to 21 megapixels. Video capture has been improved to 1080p at up to 60 frames per second, and the 450 allows for audio zoom when the camcorder is zoomed in. The Hexagon DSP also makes it possible for phones with the Snapdragon 450 to support iris-based biometric authentication — a first for the Snapdragon 400 family. Other features supported by the Snapdragon 450 include Quick Charge 3.0, advanced power management, fingerprint sensors, high-quality audio codecs, and powerful speaker amplifiers. Qualcomm said the Snapdragon 450 Platform will begin sampling during the third quarter and it expects the processor to reach consumer devices before the end of the year.

    Snapdragon Wear 1200 Platform Targets Simpler Wearables

    Qualcomm today announced the Snapdragon Wear 1200 Platform, a new system-on-a-chip that is meant for personal fitness and tracking devices more so than smartwatches. The 1200 consumes just 79 square millimeters of space and relies on a 1.3 GHz ARM Cortex A7 processor core with an integrated Cat-M1, NB1, and eGPRS multi-mode modem. The platform supports VoLTE, multiple global positioning systems, as well as Bluetooth 4.2 and 802.11ac WiFi for connectivity. Qualcomm claims the Wear 1200 Platform is 45% smaller than previous designs and accommodates up to 10 days of battery life even when connected to LTE. The Wear 1200 Platform is ideal for targeted kid, pet, elderly, and fitness trackers, according to Qualcomm, thanks to geofencing support and the extended battery life. The SoC can run Linux or RTOS operating systems, but nothing like Android Wear. The Snapdragon Wear 1200 Platform is in production and shipping today.

    Qualcomm's New Fingerprint Sensors Work Under Water and Through Metal

    Qualcomm today announced its next-generation fingerprint sensors for displays, metal, and glass. Qualcomm says it created the new sensors for today’s demanding mobile designs, which are moving towards bezel-less, glass-and-metal hardware. All three new sensors work on waterproof hardware and the ultrasonic sensors can “see” through water and oil for underwater wake-and-authenticate. The new fingerprint sensors can detect heartbeats and blood flow, which help support finger swipes for directional gestures. The Display fingerprint sensor works through OLED displays up to 1200 μm thick, supporting ultrasonic wake-up and authentication. The Glass fingerprint sensor works through displays and/or glass surfaces up to 800 μm thick with capacitive wake-up and authentication. The Metal & Glass sensor supports ultrasonic wake-up through glass as thick as 800 μm and aluminum as thick as 650 μm. This last sensor may not support authentication (fingerprint locks), but it can still be used to wake devices up as well as interact with on-screen elements via swiping finger gestures. Qualcomm said these sensors were designed with the Snapdragon 630 and 660 processors in mind, though they will work with most Snapdragon 800, 600, and 400 series mobile platforms. The three sensors are expected to sample starting in July, with the first devices arriving during the first half of 2018.
