Android 11 and Google Pixel 5: We have been waiting for this new function

Android 11 and Google Pixel 5 We have been waiting for this new function

Android 11 is not yet around the corner, but little by little, more and more details of the upcoming version is coming to light. Now a new function has been discovered that hopefully will not only be used on Google’s Pixel phones – every smartphone could benefit from it.

Android 11: is the extreme power saving mode coming?

In the code for Android 11, Mishaal Rahman from XDA Developers discovered a new function, which is still at a very early stage. Google is said to be planning to develop an extraordinary energy-saving mode. This should have nothing to do with a dark theme or the flight mode, in which essential elements of the cell phone are switched off. Google prefers to use its “extreme” power saving at Samsung, where such a mode is already available in a similar form as an emergency mode.

The “Ultra-Low Power Mode” that has now been discovered is intended to ensure that the cell phone is still available when the battery is no longer available. In contrast to the normal energy-saving mode, in which functions of the smartphone are switched off, the extreme variant should be at the expense of the user experience. As with Samsung, for example, this could lead to a black and white display, and apps should no longer work in the background.

The existing energy-saving mode on the Pixel 4 already has a few tricks in store to extend the battery life – which is also sorely necessary, because the capacity of the battery in the current Pixel generation leaves much to be desired. Once activated, the Google Assistant switches off, apps are no longer running in the background, location services are stopped, and the dark design is enabled.

The new power-saving mode only for the Pixel 5?

It is currently still unclear whether Google will offer the new energy-saving mode exclusively for its pixel phones or whether the feature as part of Android 11 will also be made available to other manufacturers. According to 9to5Google, the developer who introduced the change into the code has so far only appeared on the Pixel 4 (XL). It would also be possible that Google will offer the new energy-saving mode as a unique selling point for the Pixel 5 (XL) – or it will be introduced together with the upcoming Pixel 4a.

Android 11: First changes have been made

The next few months will show what we can expect with Android 11 when the first beta versions are released. Google will drop the size limit for videos of currently 4 GB. This is intended to better support current smartphones with 4K and upcoming smartphones with 8K videos.

There will also be changes for updates. These should be able to be installed “on a trial basis” so that problems can be returned to the old version. Permissions will probably also receive an update; for example, apps should only have access to specific folders.

Like This Rendering the Display of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 from Circulating Leaks

A few days ago a photo leaked showing the appearance of Samsung’s latest foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Flip3. However, the circulating leak comes with a very low resolution so it is not quite clearly visible.

But thanks to these leaks, now LetsGoDigital, in collaboration with designer Giuseppe Spinelli, has made a render that shows the shape of the Galaxy Z Flip3 based on the leaked photo.

This high-resolution 3D rendering shows the appearance of the Galaxy Z Flip3 which appears with a more different design, especially near the rear camera.

Because Samsung now presents a secondary screen with a larger size in addition to its 2 rear camera setups to display various information such as messages, notifications, and others.

It is known that the secondary screen in the black layout will be coated with Gorilla Glass Victus, while the rest of the body will be made of glass coated with a matte texture.

Surely this combination is really very attractive even though this smartphone looks like the Google Pixel 3 smartphone launched a few years ago.

Previous leaks stated that the secondary screen presented on the Galaxy Z Flip3 will be 1.83 inches, larger than the secondary screen found on the previous Z Flip which is 1.1 inches in size.

It is predicted that the Galaxy Z Flip3 will be announced by Samsung in July, along with the presence of the Galaxy Z Fold3 whose photo was also leaked a few days ago.

Apple Announces Purple Color Variants for iPhone 12 and 12 Min

Launched last year, Apple presents the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini smartphones which come in several color variants, namely red, green, dark blue, white, and black.

However, through the Apple Event which they held earlier this morning, Apple announced the presence of a new color variant of the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini, namely purple. The new color also looks elegant and cool.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the new colors of the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini are very unique and stunning. The combination of a purple color that is not too vibrant makes it match the aluminum material used in the smartphone.

“We are excited to introduce a new purple color. This new color looks really stunning with the glass back and the new design. It’s really pretty,” said Tim Cook in his presentation.

Not only that, Apple is known to also present several new color variants for its silicon cases such as Capri Blue, Pistachio, Cantaloupe, and Amethyst which can be purchased at the Apple Store starting today.

For the purple iPhone 12 and 12 Mini, Apple will start selling it on April 30, 2021, at the same price as the other color variants. Interested in buying it?

Samsung reportedly wants to make a 2-sided foldable smartphone, to be released this year

Now many smartphone brands are starting to innovate to bring foldable smartphones. But for now, we can admit that Samsung is the company that is best equipped with this technology.

Talking about a foldable smartphone, recently there has been a recent report from Nikkei Asia where says that Samsung is developing a new foldable smartphone that can be folded two sides.

The folding screen technology is also named DualFold and allows the smartphone to be folded to the inside or the outside. Of course, this is a new innovation that has not existed before.

According to the source of the report, this is being done by Samsung because they are starting to be ambitious in terms of developing a folding screen smartphone with a target of 10 million units per year.

“The company (Samsung) wants to sell more folding screen devices with different designs,” the source wrote to Nikkei Asia.

Although there is no further information regarding this two-sided folding smartphone, it is predicted that the smartphone will be launched in 2021 considering that Samsung also did not release the latest Galaxy Note series due to a problem with the chipset.
