Being a college student and maintaining the site for covering tech products seems to be a bit more difficult than I expected. But I guess I have found a good way to regularly push out some new content. Starting today, I’ll be pushing out one article per day – and that’s all you’ll need to read to know about everything that happened inside Tech Industry – during that one day.
I’ll definitely try to cover it all but if not all, I’ll still cover the Top 3. Also considering the fact that everyday isn’t the same, you might see less than 3 things covered in that article if nothing new happens on that day. But on the flip side, there can be days where you’ll see more than just single article being published online. Now that the introduction is completed, let’s just get started with Tech Today which includes OnePlus TV, Android 10, iPhone 11 and more.
OnePlus TV will be getting software updates for three years
OnePlus has recently confirmed that they’ll be entering the TV market soon with their OnePlus TV. Also, it was confirmed that it’ll be a 55-inch QLED 4K TV (supposedly) which will be running on Android TV OS. Now, in a new post on the OnePlus Forums, the CEO of OnePlus – Pete Lau – has confirmed that the OnePlus TV will be receiving updates for three years.
At first, this does sound great, but will this be enough? I’m asking that question because people don’t change their TVs as frequently as their smartphones. So, it’ll be interesting to see how this turns out. Anyways, it’s definitely a step in the right direction as the Mi LED 4K TV which I currently have isn’t updated since a long time. And if I remember correctly, it was promised that the first generation of the Mi 4K TVs which were launched in India will be updated to the Android TV OS. But it hasn’t happened yet – and that’s not good.
Android 10 coming to your Pixel devices on September 3
Recently, a few screenshots of the chat with Google Support Reps made its way to the Internet which said that the Google’s new and latest version of Android – Android 10 would be coming to the Pixel devices on September 3, 2019.
Now, one of the renowned Canadian carriers, Rogers seem to have confirmed that again. Rogers’ public OS upgrade schedule included the update schedule for the range of Google Pixel devices. And that schedule said that the update will arrive on your Pixel devices on September 3, 2019 – which seems promising. As of now, Rogers has removed that reference but here’s the schedule which was posted on their forums.
iPhone 11 trio might be available from September 20
A special event by Apple will be held on September 10 where they’ll be unveiling the new iPhone series. The trio – iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max (Damn, these names) will be supposedly up for pre-orders, starting September 13 – which seems to be pretty likely as that’s the first Friday after the announcement. And they will be available in several countries, starting September 20 which is exactly one week after the pre-orders go live.
This timeline matches the routine Apple schedule which they follow after every launch but take this with a pinch of salt. These are just rumors and there’s no confirmation about the same.
Motorola One Zoom leaked with detailed specifications
Motorola One Zoom has been already seen on the Internet before. But today, some detailed specs have surfaced online. The first important thing to note from those specs is that this device won’t be a part of the Android One Program. Instead, they might launch One Pro as a part of Android One Program. Coming to the specs, the device will be supposedly powered by Snapdragon 675. Along with that, it’ll have 4GB RAM and 128GB Internal Storage and will be running on Android 9 Pie. On the front, there will be a 6.4-inch 19:9 FHD+ Super AMOLED display along with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Motorola One Zoom will be coming with a waterdrop notch to accommodate the 25MP f/2.0 selfie camera. There will be a quad camera setup on the back. The primary sensor will be everyone’s favourite 48MP paired along with 16MP ultra-wide sensor and 8MP telephoto sensor. This telephoto sensor will be capable of 3x optical zoom along with 5x hybrid zoom. The fourth sensor might just be a depth sensor. Powering all that will be a 4,000 mAh battery with 18W fast-charging support. It would also have a P2i nano-coating which can prevent your device from occasional splashes. And the device would weigh in at 190 grams. The Motorola One Zoom will be available for purchase for €399.
Google will autoplay the videos in Google Play Store
Google has recently updated the Play Store with a new design – but without the support of dark mode. The dark mode support might come with the Android 10, but I’m not here to talk about that. Google has announced that it’ll now automatically play the videos on apps in the Play Store. You may ask the reason? Well, Google said that this will help more users discover the developer’s content at a glance. But to do this, the developers will have to remove monetization from those videos which were originally pulled from YouTube.
So, on one hand, Google want to push the content of these developers. But on the other hand, they don’t want them to earn from the Ads on these videos – which are also produced by the Developer. The developers have the time until October 30, 2019 to disable monetization or to upload a new video without monetizing the same. Google had already rolled such feature for YouTube with an option to disable it. Let’s hope that the play store will also have that option as such feature can make the user experience even worse.
