Apple iPhone 8 Plus And iPhone X Witnessing Good Demand And Sales Unlike iPhone 8

It has been a handful of weeks since Apple has began trading the 3 new handsets, the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8, and iPhone X. While the firm has not unveiled the official trade numbers on the smartphone, Ming-Chi Kuo, the analyst at KGI Securities, has rolled out investor note forecasting on the demand and growth of the handsets.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus And iPhone X Witnessing Good Demand And Sales Unlike iPhone 8

In the note, Kuo claims that Apple iPhone X manufacture will reach somewhere in the range of 25 Million and 27 Million units at the time of the Q4 of 2017. The real trade numbers predicted are in the range of 22 Million and 24 Million. The analyst claims that he witnesses a sturdy need of the handset in the Q1 of next year. In the given time period, the manufacture is anticipated to develop by 35% to 45% as compared to the last quarter.

The reason for this is being claimed to be that the users will drop early concerns of getting utilized to all the modifications executed in the iPhone X. For the iPhone 8 Plus, it has been cited that the handset is being traded above the early guesses made by Apple. In addition to this, Hon Hai is claimed to switch its manufacture lines to iPhone X from iPhone 8 Plus to fulfill the extra orders in Q4. With iPhone X witnessing a sturdy development in Q1 2018 and iPhone 8 Plus trading a tad bit more than hoped, the iPhone 8 might be the only sufferer. The iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X trades might be blamed for sales decline of iPhone 8.

Kuo claims that the manufacture of iPhone 8 might fall by 50% to 60% in Q1 of next year in comparison to the Q4 of this year. It has been claimed that the reason of drop might be owing to less selling points as compared to the iPhone X and the iPhone 8 Plus.

“With less main selling points and given a user fondness for iPhone 8 Plus on a restricted cost gap, we anticipate iPhone 8 manufacture orders to witness 50% to 60% quarter to quarter drop in Q1 of 2018,” he further claimed.

Android 8.0 Oreo Crosses 0.3% Of All Active Gadgets

Google has unveiled the newest Android distribution information on its website of Android Developer. As per the table, the latest version of OS, 8.0 Oreo has not even crossed 1% of all the Android gadgets all over the world.

Android 8.0 Oreo Crosses 0.3% Of All Active Gadgets

The distribution figures unveil that Android 8.0 Oreo has smacked 0.3% of all the active gadgets that run on Android. This is a sluggish expansion keeping in mind the particular version began launching out to all the consumers in late August all over the world this year. It is worth claiming that the OS edition is limited to Pixel and Nexus gadgets only. None of the main OEMs have begun launching out the version of the OS to their handsets. Even those operating near stock Android variants such as Motorola and Nokia handsets have not yet got Android 8.0 Oreo.

Android 7.1 and 7.0 Nougat has witnessed a fine rise in comparison to previous month. Early last month, Android 7.1 and 7.0 were on 2.0% and 15.8%, respectively. This month they are placed on 3% and 17.6%, respectively. Keeping in mind that Android operates on more than 2 Billion handsets, a growth by a handful of percent also indicates thousands of gadgets. We see an increment in distribution of Nougat mainly due to various handsets receiving the OS updates.

Even though Android Lollipop and Marshmallow have witnessed a fall, they are still above Android Oreo and Nougat when it comes to distribution percentage. Android Marshmallow v6.0 has 30.9% gadgets wrapped. This also makes the specific version of OS the most extensive in the segment of tablets. Android Lollipop v5.1 and v5.0 obtain 20.8% and 6.4% respectively. Android Jelly Bean v4.3, v4.2.x, and v4.1.x are on 0.9%, 3.1%, and 2.2%, respectively. KitKat is hanging on 13.8%, while Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread still survives in the distribution segment with 0.5% each.

Google by now has started trialing Android 8.1 in the preview mode for developer. It aims to make it openly available by subsequent month. As a result, in all likelihood we will view the specific version of OS in January 2018 in distribution table.

‘Sonic Booms’ captured by Ultrafast Camera

When an aircraft travels at a super speed, a conic-shaped sonic boom is created which leaves behind pulses of light in a cone-shaped pattern. The scientists have now developed a camera, which can capture it. Interesting, right…? Let’s have a quick glance at it.

An object when moving pushes away the air in front of it creating pressure waves that move at the speed of sound waves in all the directions. If the object speed is equal to or greater than the sound waves, then it moves faster than the pressure waves because of which the pressure waves pile up creating shock waves called sonic booms. The sonic booms appear in a cone-shaped pattern known as “Mach cones,” which are present at the back of the supersonic objects. The scientists have been making efforts to capture the conical wakes, sonic booms, or photonic Mach cones.

According to Ensteins theory, light travels at a faster speed in vacuum. Nothing can travel faster than light, but it is now possible to slow down light when passed through glass or by other methods. You may ask HOW? The researcher Jinyang Liang and his colleagues at Washington University developed a narrow tunnel which had dry ice fog in it and this tunnel was placed in between plates made of aluminum oxide powder and silicone rubber in order to capture the photonic Mach cones. The researchers then passed the green laser light through the tunnel where it was scattered by the dry ice generating light waves that could enter the plates. The green light moved faster in the tunnel, creating a cone pattern of overlapping waves in the plates.

The “streak camera” created could capture images at a speed of 100 Billion frames per second in a single exposure. The camera captured images—one, direct image, two, temporal information of the scene so as to help reconstruct the image when wanted. The images have different bar codes to make sorting easier.

According to the researchers, the ultrafast camera could capture images of unpredictable or complex events at first exposure. The camera could be used to capture images of the neurons, flowing blood, living cells, and brain live image traffic in the near future. Isn’t this an interesting and great camera…?

Review: LeEco Super3 X55 smart TV

LeEco, which has recently gained its name in the smartphone market, is all set to establish and flourish its magic in the TV section. LeEco gave everything it had to the customers by introducing the LeEco Super3 X55 smart TV. What is so special about this TV? Well, priced at Rs 60,000, the LeEco Super3 X55 smart TV comes with a 55-inch 4K display. Now that is somewhat gaining your attraction? Let’s see if the TV is worth buying or not?

Design

Now, LeEco has spent some time and done some brain storming when it comes to design. It’s elegant and yet so classy design attracts the users within no time. Even though most of the users prefer to attach their TV onto the wall, this smart TV may lead to change your decision. This is due to the panel design that the TV has.

Now, since the panel has occupied the space in front, it left no option for the speakers but to position them at the back. Now this may be the reason for user to be disappointed as the sound quality may not come clear. All the ports, including an extra USB port are placed on the back to the right side.

For its elegant design, the smart TV should get full points, but due to the placement of speaker we would rate 8/10.

Display

LeEco deserves a salute as to how it is providing a 4K panel at this range of price. As said, there is always a “but” factor. The twist comes here: The TV runs on a resolution of 1080p resolution. Hence, when you are scrolling through the menu and UI, it isn’t 4K resolution. The actual UHD resolution is experienced only when you play or stream 4K videos. Interestingly, the inbuilt video app, too, does not have 4K streaming option.

Hence, even though the TV provides “4K” display, with all the back doors we rate the smart TV 6/10 for its display.

Other features

The company has really given everything to the X55. The TV has a quad-core Mali-T760 MP4 GPU for support. Supporting this GPU is a Cortex A17 quad-core processor. With this comes 8GB of internal memory and 2GB of RAM. The port section contains 1x USB 2.0, 3x HDMI 2.0 ports, 2x USB 3.0, a Component Input (YPbPr), Ethernet 10/100M, an SD Card slot, VGA input, RF input, SPDIF (Optical) Audio Output, PC Audio Line-in, AV input, Wi-Fi 2.4GHz and 5GHz support, Audio out (earphone & coaxial combined), as well as Bluetooth.

Concluding the review, the LeEco Super3 X55 smart TV is the only UHD TV that comes in the price range of Rs 60,000 but with “terms and conditions”. If you are a newbie and want an UHD smart TV then you should always, with no doubt, go for the LeEco Super3 X55 smart TV.
