Will your smartphone support it? https://kabusikikaisha.com/will-your-smartphone-support-it/ Tue, 30 Aug 2022 11:12:15 +0000 https://kabusikikaisha.com/will-your-smartphone-support-it/ Jio recently announced plans to operate on 5G SA (standalone) networks.

Jio recently announced plans to operate on 5G SA (standalone) networks. This is great news because 5G SA will not be tethered to the boundaries of the existing 4G network, which NSA (non-standalone) 5G relies on. However, the question consumers need to ask is whether all of these “5G” smartphones available at various price points today will support Jio’s SA 5G implementation.

The most popular brands in India are now offering a range of 5G smartphones which are marketed to be future proof with support for the next generation network. However, one of the often overlooked items here is support for 5G bands. To use 5G effectively, in various parts of the country where coverage may fluctuate, your 5G phone must support more 5G bands.

Jio will work on n3, n5, n28, n77 and n78 bands. However, the 5G bands themselves can be divided into NSA and SA bands, which as their names suggest will support both NSA and SA networks on a particular device. Here’s a brand-by-brand overview of some popular phones and whether they will support SA networks.

Xiaomi, Redmi and Poco

Popular Xiaomi, Redmi and Poco smartphones that support 5G support 5G SA and 5G NSA bands. Xiaomi says these phones will receive an OTA update for SA band support, after which the phones will support Jio’s 5G networks.

“While most of our smartphones are NSA-ready, we have scheduled OTA update deployments in a phased manner to ensure SA support. To ensure an unimpeded experience, most smartphones in our wallet will be functional with SA mode compatibility very soon through timely updates,” Xiaomi said in a statement to indianexpress.com.

This includes Xiaomi phones ranging from the Xiaomi 11 Lite NE 5G to the Xiaomi 12 Pro. In the Redmi series, phones like the Redmi K50i 5G and Redmi Note 11T 5G will also support SA networks. Poco phones from M4 5G to X4 Pro 5G also support NSA and SA networks.

Although the new Poco F4 5G doesn’t mention SA or NSA networks on its specs page, we expect the value flagship phone to support SA networks.

real me

Realme has a wide range of 5G devices in India, and phones like the Realme 9i 5G mention both NSA and SA bands on the specs page. The same goes for mid-range phones like the Realme 9 Pro Plus 5G and Realme 9 Pro 5G. High-end phones like the Realme GT series also support NSA and SA network bands.

Realme has yet to reveal if its phones will directly support 5G SA networks, or if they will require an update to enable the same, similar to Xiaomi’s approach. That said, if the product page of your current or next Realme smartphone mentions both NSA and SA 5G support, your phone must be running Jio’s SA 5G network, including phones as old as the Realme Narzo 30 5G. . This information is still impossible for some Realme 5G phones, such as the Realme X7 5G.

OnePlus

Older OnePlus phones like the OnePlus 8 series and the first OnePlus Nord were 5G phones but criticized for offering support only for the n78 band in India. It’s unclear if phones like the OnePlus Nord 2020 can use Jio’s SA 5G network, as its Indian product page doesn’t mention NSA and SA support, but instead only lists the single n78 band. The same goes for the OnePlus Nord CE.

Meanwhile, the OnePlus 8 and OnePlus 8 Pro still support the n78 band. But the page mentions that “5G n78 can work in both SA and NSA mode” on the product page. Newer phones like the OnePlus 9 series support two 5G bands – n41 and n78, both of which will support 5G SA and NSA. However, since Jio will not work on the n41 band, Jio users using OnePlus 9-series phones will still be stuck with the n78 band alone.

The OnePlus Nord 2 5G and Nord CE 2 5G will support multiple 5G, SA, and NSA bands, and while the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite also supports multiple bands, the only one that will work with Jio’s SA network is the band n78.

OnePlus 10 series users will happily have a better time with Jio’s 5G network, as phones like the OnePlus 10 Pro, OnePlus 10R, and OnePlus 10T will support multiple 5G bands including n3, n5, and n78.

Apple

Apple started adding 5G support to its lineup with the iPhone 12 series. So if you’re wondering if your iPhone 11 or older iPhone SE will run 5G, the answer is no. But the whole iPhone 12 and 13 series supports many 5G bands, all listed as 5G NR bands.

While support for 5G SA networks is likely on iPhones, we currently have no confirmation on how Apple will implement the same. The iPhone 13 series supports SA 5G, and this is also mentioned by other websites of global telecommunications companies around the world that highlight the list of 5G devices. But with the iPhone 12 series, it is unclear if SA 5G is supported in India. For example, a Singapore-based telecommunications company mentions that the iPhone 12 series does not support SA 5G. But we also know that Apple added SA 5G support for the iPhone 12 series in the US for T-Mobile networks in June last year. So, a similar update might be making its way to India as well.

Nothing

The Nothing Phone (1) also supports multiple 5G bands, both NSA and SA, and can support Jio’s standalone 5G network.

Samsung

Samsung phones support multiple 5G bands, from the low-end 5G M13 to the Galaxy S22 series. However, Samsung’s product pages, much like Apple’s, do not specifically list support for NSA/SA bands at this time. This doesn’t tell us if Samsung’s phones will directly support SA networks or if they’ll need an OTA update to get the same.

Oppo

Oppo’s entry-level 5G phones, such as the Oppo A53s 5G, have few 5G bands, but support NSA and SA networks. Meanwhile, some devices like Oppo K10 5G and A74 5G do not mention support for SA/NSA bands.

Some phones, like the Oppo F19 Pro+, only support N78 and N41 bands in SA mode. SA/NSA band support is not explicitly mentioned for several other devices, such as the Oppo 5 Pro, Reno 6, Reno 7 Pro, and Reno 8 series. The Reno 7 5G is the only Reno series phone that mentions support for SA and NSA networks.

Long live

The Vivo T1 Pro supports both NSA and SA bands, as do most newer Vivo phones like the V25 Pro and X80 series. The latter’s product page also indicates that a software update may be deployed to enable support for SA networks. This is true for some older 5G phones, such as the Vivo Y72. The phone page mentions that an OTA update will bring support for SA 5G.

iQOO

iQOO does not explicitly mention SA/NSA band support for most of its devices, including newer phones like the iQOO 9T, iQOO Neo 6, and iQOO Z6 Pro 5G. The same goes for older phones like the iQOO 7, which only supports the n78 band, but doesn’t mention any SA/NSA clarifications.

Apples rumored iPhone 14 set to debut on September 7 at its next launch event. But before the big announcement, fans are wondering what the new iPhone will look like. Only Apple has the answer for now, although the ever-swirling rumor mill has given us some clues as to the possible design of the iPhone 14.

We’ll update this story as we learn more, so be sure to bookmark this page for later. Here’s what we’ve heard so far, gossip about a plus durable titanium alloy body to a notchless screen. For more iPhone 14 rumors, check out everything we heard about it release date and the price. Moreover, here all the new features we want to see.

What iOS 16 can tell us about the iPhone 14

iPhone 14 screen: take it down a notch

This one has been around for years, but one of the biggest rumors is about what the iPhone 14 won’t have. After introducing the notch on the iPhone X in 2017, Apple may finally ditch it this year. The company will trade it in for a smaller punch-hole camera in the Pro models, according to famed Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. A punch-hole design refers to a screen with only a small circular cutout for the front camera, as seen on a number of Samsung launches like the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy ZFlip 3.

Instead of a punch-hole design, display analyst Ross Young speculates that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will have a pill-shaped hole and cutout to accommodate the front camera and Face ID. The pill-shaped cutout would house the front camera and Face ID, while the punch-hole would be for the Face ID dot projector, according to a January report from MacRumors. The hole and pill design is depicted in rumored renders of the Pro published by 91Mobiles. Meanwhile, alleged renders on MySmartPrice show the base iPhone 14 keeping the notch.

Right now, the notch houses the components that make Face ID work, which means Apple may have to scale back all that technology to make a notchless iPhone a reality. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman also hinted at the notch removal in his Power On newsletter in September last year, in which he predicted a “complete redesign” for the iPhone 14.

The alleged iPhone 14 hole and pill display appeared in diagrams on Chinese social media site Weibo, and was later shared on YouTube by leaker Jon Prosser. While we don’t know what the iPhone design will look like until it’s revealed, the schematics offer a glimpse of the possible display of the next iPhone.

iPhone 14 camera design: bumping into each other

Another design feature that would be on Apple’s list to remove is that big camera bump. The iPhone 13 line features a protruding camera bump, which houses two or three lenses depending on the model. According to Prosser, who has a Random Accuracy record, the iPhone of the future will eliminate the bump entirely, which could mean a thicker chassis for the camera components. According to Prosser, the iPhone 14 body is going to be a “fat boy”. But could it be thick enough to include all that camera hardware without the chunky rear camera setup? I take this rumor with a grain of salt.

Speaking of losing weight, Leaker ShrimpApplePro tweeted that the Pro Max version of the iPhone 14 will come with smaller bezels than the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

iphone-14-press-80-5x

Early renders of Jon Prosser’s iPhone 14 suggest a notchless design and a flush camera setup.

Jon Prosser

iPhone 14 chassis: stronger and lighter

Talking about the iPhone chassis, Prosser also said that the The iPhone 14 Pro could get a titanium alloy body for the first time, replacing the stainless steel one. This rumor was first mentioned in a 2021 report from JP Morgan Chase’s China office. Apple has used a titanium alloy in some Apple Watch models before, including the Series 7. Titanium alloy rivals steel in toughness, while weighing less than stainless steel. Titanium is also more resistant to scratches, corrosion and bending.

Size of the iPhone 14: identical but different frames for the Pro models

Apple’s last two iPhone lines have featured the same 6.1-inch size for the base model, going up to 6.7-inches for the Pro Max. According to a Nikkei Asian Review report in July last year, Apple will stick to these sizes for the iPhone 14 series, but will eliminate the 5.4-inch Mini. This rumor is corroborated by a 9to5Mac March Report. Reports have shown sluggish iPhone 12 Mini salesso it will be no surprise if Apple ends up phasing out the tiny phone in 2022.

Although the size of the next iPhone is expected to remain the same, the Pro Max’s display bezels are said to be 20% smaller compared to previous iPhone generations, according to CAD renders shared in April by Leaked Twitter ShrimpApplePro. This means the screen would be slightly larger. However, it is important to note that this rumor should be taken with a grain of salt since ShrimpApplePro does not have an extensive track record to back up their speculations.

Will the iPhone 14 bend?

Probably not. To be clear, we cannot say for sure if a Foldable iPhone will never see the light of day, but I remain hopeful that it can happen in the next few years. A Bloomberg report in January says Apple already has a working foldable screen prototype for the iPhone, but hasn’t confirmed a launch schedule. Other outlets, including Taiwan’s Economic Daily, have identified 2022 as the year the foldable iPhone will come to fruition, while others are suggesting 2023. Display analyst Ross Young, however, suggests foldable iPhone could be delayed until 2025.

Remember the iPhone 13 was an increment upgrade from iPhone 12. That means it potentially sets the stage for a drastic design overhaul when the iPhone 14 or 15 arrives, much like Apple has revamped the look of its phones with the iPhone X.

Xiaomi 12S Ultra is presented as an upside-down flagship device. But its signature look is the company’s first collaboration with German camera maker Leica, which flows into the device’s standout feature – a one-inch camera sensor on the back. . Yes, the camera’s large sensor is great for taking better photos, especially in low light. But it’s on paper. How good is this new camera in real life? I took the Xiaomi 12S Ultra camera to the city of Pondicherry, and here are my first impressions of the phone.

No compromise on performance

The Xiaomi 12S Ultra is a spec phone, something obvious from the moment you start using it. From Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 to a QHD LTPO 2.0 AMOLED display, you’ve got all the specs you’d expect from a flagship here and it’s nice to see that Xiaomi hasn’t compromised on others aspects of the phone, in pursuit of a supreme camera experience.

The Xiaomi 12S Ultra is primarily a camera phone, but it doesn’t skip the rest of the flagship checklist. (Image source: Chetan Nayak/ The Indian Express)

Here is an overview of the main features of the phone:

Specifications of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra: 6.73-inch LTPO 2.0 QHD display with 120Hz refresh rate, Dolby Vision, 1500 nits peak brightness | Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1, up to 12GB RAM, 512GB UFS 3.1 storage | 50.3MP + 48MP + 48MP rear camera + 32MP selfie camera | 4860mAh battery + 67W charging | IP68 dust, water resistance |

The phone also comes with stereo speakers, an under-display optical fingerprint sensor, and Xiaomi’s signature infrared blaster. You don’t get the fastest wired charging at 67W, but the phone also supports 50W wireless charging, as well as USB Power Delivery 3.0 and Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 support, so that’s Something.

Premium look and feel

I was skeptical about the design of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra when the first leaks started appearing on the web, but holding the phone in hand the feeling quickly faded away. The device is big, and yes, it’s also heavier, but the premium design somehow works here. Instead of feeling like an outsized smartphone, it felt like a phone with a specific purpose and design to match.

That said, the phone as a whole doesn’t feel much bigger than other phones in its class. The Xiaomi 12S Ultra comes in two colorways and while I can see most people gravitating toward the classier black variant, I took a liking to the olive green hue of the other variant. Design is subjective, after all.

Everything about this Leica camera

The Xiaomi 12S camera is awesome and packed with features. It starts with two shooting modes, one that sticks to keeping the colors natural, and another that brings out the colors and shows a bit more. During the day, the photos I took looked colorful and vibrant almost always and images between the main, telephoto and ultrawide cameras had a lot of consistency.

It’s a bit difficult to take a bad photo with the 12S Ultra, especially if you know how to deal with the settings you get, including a full Pro mode (manual mode) and RAW support, although the camera mode normal auto should suffice for most.

However, macro shots didn’t resonate with the rest of the UI’s macro mode experience, and I ended up shooting closer subjects using the prime lens with a zoom at the square.

Leica’s new monochrome filters also produce truly pleasing monochrome photos in almost any environment, including after sunset.

Low light is where the Xiaomi 12S Ultra stands out much more than other phones I’ve used recently. A lot more light results in less grainy photos, with lots of detail. The phone encourages you to play around with the settings if you want to take more creative photos even at night, instead of limiting yourself to the optimal settings for the least noise and smoothness.

The result is great low-light shots, even in extreme darkness. While you still can’t compare the 12S Ultra’s low-light performance with pro cameras, put the effort behind a night or portrait shot and you might be surprised at what you end up capturing with this phoen.

But, will you get the 12S Ultra?

The launch of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra is not yet confirmed in markets outside of China, including India. However, some recent leaks suggest Xiaomi may be considering the same. The Xiaomi 12S Ultra costs 5,999 yuan (around Rs 70,188), which seems like a fair price for the specs and camera you’re getting here. However, if Xiaomi decides not to bring the phone to India, the only way to get the phone would be to ship it from China, which would cost you more and also get you a phone with the Chinese version of the MIUI software. and no Google service. (including the Play Store).

After announcing the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4 on August 16 in India, all eyes are on Samsung’s next flagship phone – the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which will be announced next year. While the South Korean phone maker has yet to give us any details on the upcoming Galaxy S23 series, a report suggests that the Galaxy S23 Ultra may sport a 200MP camera.

According to a report by Computer news in Korea, Samsung Electronics’ Mobile Experience division has confirmed that the phone will have a 200MP main sensor. The publication went on to say that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the only phone with a 200MP camera.

The report matches the known tipster ice universe previous claim suggesting the Galaxy S23 Ultra will feature a 200MP ISOCELL HP2 camera sensor. In case you didn’t know, Samsung Electronics was the first to develop a 200MP image sensor and the first to unveil a 200MP mobile image sensor last year.

Ice Universe also claimed that the S23 Ultra will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and will have a 5,000mAh battery. The Galaxy 23 Ultra might also be able to record 8K video at 60fps. Speculation suggests that the next phone could weigh 228g and be similar in thickness to the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

In addition, a tipster by the name of Alvin (@sondesix) recently said that Samsung may use Qualcomm’s 3D Sonic Max fingerprint scanning technology, which offers a larger scanning area, fingerprint detection faster and more secure. The Galaxy 23 series is expected to come with One UI 5 based on Android 13 out of the box, as Samsung has already started beta testing for the same.

BGMI to VLC Media Player, “banned” apps or services you might still have on your phone https://kabusikikaisha.com/bgmi-to-vlc-media-player-banned-apps-or-services-you-might-still-have-on-your-phone/ Thu, 18 Aug 2022 05:10:46 +0000 https://kabusikikaisha.com/bgmi-to-vlc-media-player-banned-apps-or-services-you-might-still-have-on-your-phone/ In June 2020, at the height of geopolitical tensions between China and India, the Indian government issued a notice asking Google and Apple to remove 59 Chinese apps from their App Stores, citing that the apps were “harmful to sovereignty and to India’s integrity, India’s defence, state security and public order.” Popular apps and services […]]]>

In June 2020, at the height of geopolitical tensions between China and India, the Indian government issued a notice asking Google and Apple to remove 59 Chinese apps from their App Stores, citing that the apps were “harmful to sovereignty and to India’s integrity, India’s defence, state security and public order.” Popular apps and services like TikTok, Shein, ShareIT, UC Browser have been banned in the first list, published in June 2020.

Since then, the list of banned apps has grown steadily and has exceeded 250 apps. The latest apps added to the list include the popular VLC media player and the Battlegrounds Mobile India game, which has been pulled from official stores, although the game is still running in India.

That said, let’s take a look at some of the popular banned apps that you might still be using despite the government’s decision to ban them. Keep in mind that for some apps it is not clear if there is a ban or not.

1. Mobile India Battlegrounds (BGMI)

PlayersUnknown’s Battlegrounds Mobile or PUBG Mobile, the popular online multiplayer shooter was initially banned in the first wave in 2020. Two years later, Krafton, the South Korean developers behind the original game, relaunched the title under another name – Battlegrounds India Mobile. BGMI has gained popularity in India, crossing over 100 million users in just one year.

But all was not well and there were problems with data transfer. Last month, the government issued an order and the game was removed from Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. To this day, it is still unknown if BGMI is officially banned because those who downloaded the game can still play. The game can also be downloaded from app stores or third-party websites on Android devices and via APK files. Until the game’s servers are taken down in India, the ban is only partial.

2. VLC Media Player

VLC is one of the most popular media players of all time. But few months ago Indian government decided to block VLC media player website. Unfortunately, neither the government nor VLC’s developers have explained why the app was banned. The official VLC Media Player account tweeted that they also need help. The tweet reads: “If you are in India, please help us” and links to an article about the ban. The Internet Freedom Foundation also filed an RTI about the ban and, according to them, the government gave no information about it.

Some reports suggest that VLC Media Player has been used by China-backed hacking group Cicada to deploy malicious code to target machines. Although users cannot download the desktop version of the app, the mobile version can still be downloaded from the Google Play Store. That said, VLC Media Player will continue to work if you already have it installed and can be downloaded from unofficial sources.

3. Mobile Legends: Bang Bang

Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, better known as ML, is a 5v5 mobile MOBA that allows players to battle against others. The game was banned during the first ban wave in 2020, but it is still popular in the Indian mobile gaming community. It is also part of the Southeast Asian Games. Similar to BGMI, the game is still playable in India if you have it installed and can be downloaded from other third party websites.

4.AliExpress

Based in China, AliExpress is part of Chinese retail giant Alibaba. Even though most of the retailers are Chinese, the platform does not sell to customers living in mainland China. The app was banned in November 2020 in the fourth wave of bans.

Although you may not be able to download the app from Google Play Store or Apple App Store, if you have an Android device, you can download the APK from websites or app stores. If you don’t want to use the app, the website is also accessible in India.

5. CPU Browser

UCBrowser is one of the most popular mobile browsers of all time. The app is lightweight and packed with features like a built-in ad blocker, incognito mode, the ability to play videos in the background, and many more. It was banned in 2020 during the first wave of bans. Due to the popularity of UC Browser, many continue to download the app from third-party websites or app stores. If you have it installed on your device, you can continue using it without any problem.

6.Xender

Similar to the now-banned Share-It, Xender is an app that allows users to share images, videos, documents, and other things among friends without using mobile data. It is cross-platform compatible and supports PC, Mac, TizenOS, iOS and Android. Xender was banned in the first wave of bans in June 2020. Many people still use Xender to share files regularly. Although it is no longer available on the Play Store, you can download the APK from third-party websites and other app stores.

7.WeChat

WeChat is a messaging platform and social media application that allows users to communicate with each other. With over a billion users, it’s also one of the most popular messaging apps on the planet. It was also banned during the first wave in June 2020. Those who have already installed the app on their device seem to be able to send and receive messages without any issues. Also, WeChat can be downloaded from the Internet or app stores other than Google Play Store.

I hate the web.

It’s a tough stance to take because the internet pays my rent, but the way apps and websites constantly compete for my attention is often very exhausting. That said, I noticed something while using Google Chrome today that improves the experience a bit.

If you consistently decline pop-up notifications, Chrome will learn this behavior over time and automatically block websites asking you to subscribe to its push notifications. I noticed this happening to me today, and when I dove a little deeper, it turns out that you can block all of these types of notifications right from Chrome’s Settings menu.

You should be able to access the setting with this link if you’re in Chrome. If that doesn’t work, accessing this menu is a bit of a pain. Click on the “three dots” menu at the top left of your Chrome window and choose “Settings”. From there, select “Privacy and Security” from the left menu. Then click “Site Settings” and select Notifications on the next page.

Once in the Notifications area, you can turn off site notifications or use a silent way to send your Chrome notifications online. The problem with this is that it also silences notifications for important apps like Google Calendar or other online work apps.

What is happening

Samsung has announced the Galaxy Z Fold 4, its all-new full-size foldable phone.

why is it important

Samsung sees foldable phones as the key to the future of its mobile device lineup. As one of the biggest smartphone makers in the world, Samsung is influencing the wider market.

And after

Samsung will launch the Galaxy Z Fold 4 on August 26 for $1,800.

Samsung continues to improve its foldable phone design with the Galaxy Z Fold 4, which goes on sale August 26 and starts at $1,800 (£1,649, AU$2,499). The new book-style foldable phone, announced on Wednesday Unpacked event, has a modified design that should be easier to manage in phone mode. It also gets new software that takes advantage of its foldable screen and routine processor and camera upgrades.

Samsung was one of the first to enter the market by launching its first Galaxy Fold device in 2019. It leads the foldable phone market by a wide margin in terms of shipments, according to estimates from Display Supply Chain Consultants and Omdia. But foldable phones still account for a larger share of the mobile phone market. The new Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 are Samsung’s latest attempt to change that by addressing some of the biggest criticisms of previous models, potentially making foldables more appealing to a wider audience.

The Galaxy Z Fold 4, for example, has a larger cover screen that looks more like a regular, non-folding phone when closed. The change makes apps feel more natural since the Z Fold 4’s screen isn’t quite as cramped. The difference is certainly noticeable compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 3, but the screen is still not as large as a standard phone such as the Galaxy S22 or iPhone 13.

Samsung also does more to make the Galaxy Z Fold 4 useful when its screen is folded halfway. Flex mode, which splits an app between the upper and lower parts of the screen when the Z Fold is open, gets a new feature. You’ll be able to use the bottom half of the screen as a touchpad to control content on the top half, like a laptop’s touchpad.

This should make it easier to navigate apps in Flex mode, as you won’t have to hide the top part of the screen with your finger while you scroll. The recently announced Galaxy Z Flip 4 also gets this feature, and Samsung says it will evaluate its integration with older Galaxy Z Fold and Flip devices. Samsung also claims that the Z Fold 4 is the first device to ship with Android 12L, the tablet-optimized version of Android. One of the most notable additions in Android 12 is the Z Fold 4’s new taskbar, which should make it easier to switch between apps.

The overall design of the Z Fold 4 is generally the same, but Samsung says the Z Fold 4 has a sturdier build. The exterior is protected by Gorilla Glass Victus Plus, while the internal tablet-sized display is said to be 45% more durable. Samsung also claims that the Z Fold 4’s interior screen is brighter than its predecessor and that the under-display interior camera is less noticeable. Like the previous version, the Z Fold 4 is also compatible with the S Pen.

Otherwise, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 gets the camera and processor upgrades you’d expect from an annual phone update. The camera is particularly noteworthy; Samsung is upgrading the Z Fold 4’s triple-lens camera system to a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, and a 10-megapixel telephoto camera. This telephoto lens will support optical zoom up to 3x and digital zoom up to 30x. Samsung is also bringing the The improved low-light photography of the Galaxy S22 to Z Fold 4 and Flip 4.

Most people interested in the Galaxy Z Fold probably care more about the phone’s giant interior display than the camera. But at such a high price, the Z Fold 4 should have a camera that matches or at least exceeds those found on Samsung’s non-folding phones. The Galaxy Z Fold 4’s cameras are definitely a step in the right direction, representing a noticeable upgrade over the Z Fold 3’s 12-megapixel wide, telephoto, and ultra-wide lenses. Galaxy S22 Ultra is still Samsung’s premium camera phone.

The Z Fold 4 will also run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, which is a newer and slightly improved version of the chip found in the Galaxy S22 line. The battery capacity also remains the same at 4,400mAh, which is a shame – CNET’s Patrick Holland was disappointed with the Galaxy Z Fold 3’s battery life.

Overall, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 is a more polished and refined version of the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Samsung seems to have a better understanding of who these devices are for, now that they’ve been around for about three years. With its large display and S Pen compatibility, Samsung is positioning the Z Fold 4 as a productivity device, much like the off Galaxy Note. Establishing this direction means Samsung can focus on adding new features that are unique and specific to the Z Fold, rather than just making sure apps run smoothly on the Fold’s various screen sizes.

At $1,800, the Z Fold 4 is still a tough sell. And while these new features are a sign of progress, they might not be enough to win over non-foldable phone users. But it’s one step closer to determining what role, if any, foldables might play in our lives.

To find out more, take a look at Galaxy ZFlip 4, Galaxy Watch 5, Galaxy Buds 2 Pro and everything else announced by Samsung.

How ‘pink slime’ journalism exploits our faith in local news https://kabusikikaisha.com/how-pink-slime-journalism-exploits-our-faith-in-local-news/ Fri, 12 Aug 2022 17:10:00 +0000 https://kabusikikaisha.com/how-pink-slime-journalism-exploits-our-faith-in-local-news/ Placeholder while loading article actions The 17th-century word “current,” which once meant “newspaper,” is obsolete, according to Merriam-Webster, except in the rare case of the title of a periodical.

The 17th-century word “current,” which once meant “newspaper,” is obsolete, according to Merriam-Webster, except in the rare case of the title of a periodical. Newspapers with this nickname in their masthead have been grandfathered because they were founded hundreds of years ago. Hearing something called “current” today, I imagine a time-tested media institution rooted in a specific city or region, like Connecticut’s Hartford Courant, which is ten years older than the United States government.

At first glance, the Mobile Courant, the site covering my hometown of Mobile, Alabama, has all the trappings of a traditional community news portal like Hartford’s. It has the old sounding name and familiar sections dedicated to local government, business, real estate and sports.

But it’s a smokescreen. Not only is the Mobile Courant short of reporters and editors, but the articles are regurgitated press releases. Clicking on the Politics section takes the reader to verbatim releases straight from the office of Republican Sen. or “Tuberville Veterans Bill Passes US Senate.” Below, you’ll find a steady stream of notifications from the Federal Election Commission about individual donations to various Republican politicians, the boring text seemingly optimized for search engines rather than human consumption.

That Democrats don’t seem to exist in the Courant world is a feature, not a bug. Le Courant is just one of dozens of network sites mass-produced by digital news firm Metric Media since 2019. It is part of a burgeoning right-wing propaganda project posing as a network local non-partisan newspapers.

The answer to the media industry’s woes? Public newspapers.

A decade ago, I coined the term “pink slime journalism” to describe the underhanded way companies like Metric Media exploit Americans’ lingering trust in local newspapers to sell an inferior product. The term refers to the controversial paste-like meat by-product that, according to reports at the time, was supposed to be added to ground beef on supermarket shelves without a label. If 19th century yellow journalism can be defined by the sensationalist “if it bleeds, it leads” mentality, pink slime is quite the opposite. He wants to quietly switch from shoddy pastel paste from a machine to your usual media feed.

Faith in journalism in the age of “fake news” and algorithm-based misinformation continues to plummet, but polls show local news is still relatively well regarded. According to a 2019 Knight Foundation survey, local outlets are significantly more trusted than national organizations — 45-31%. It’s probably because local news focuses on issues that tend to be non-partisan: weather, sports, obituaries, local elections. And staff members are your neighbors and members of your community.

But maybe not for long. As local outlets have disappeared, many have been replaced by algorithmically run pink slime outlets that use the goodwill gained from erstwhile news institutions to help advance political agendas from the outside. of these communities. I know how sausage is made, having worked in the proverbial slaughterhouse of Metric Media’s predecessor in the early 2010s. Journatic was a start-up that borrowed Silicon Valley buzzword to mask the fact that she was not reinventing newspapers – she was just disrupting the high cost of labor in the name of saving the industry from bankruptcy.

Poorly paid freelancers replaced the staff reporters who made a living at newspapers like the Chicago Tribune. Part of my job was to write local stories for the Houston Chronicle — even though I lived in Chicago — and select fake American-sounding bylines for articles written in virtual sweatshops in the Philippines. A Filipino writer named Junbe, for example, could be renamed Jimmy Finkel, thanks to a built-in drop-down menu, and Gisele Bautista could instantly become Jenni Cox. These “journalists” earned pennies per story, and much of the content was plagiarized. “It would pay off if you wrote and edited these stories only if you could write the stories in about 90 seconds,” my remote supervisor told me.

The ugly future of corporate media

In June 2012, I collaborated with public radio journalist Sarah Koenig on an episode of “This American Life” to expose Journatic’s shady tactics. The fallout was instantaneous: the Chicago Tribune and others suspended Journatic or terminated their contracts. But savvy Journatic general manager Brian Timpone didn’t fold; he went underground – renaming the company multiple times in the process.

A few years ago, Timpone switched gears after meeting conservative pundit Dan Proft through the Illinois Policy Institute, a right-wing think tank that then had financial ties to Bruce Rauner, the former recent governor of Illinois. The couple began building a mini media empire that intentionally put a conservative slant on backyard journalism – the Sinclair Broadcast Group of local newspapers. (Timpone and Proft did not respond to email requests for comment.)

This mission is accomplished if you look at the numbers. Metric Media boasts of publishing “over 5 million news articles each month” and claims to be “the largest producer of local news in the United States”. A 2020 New York Times survey identified 1,300 news sites bearing Timpone’s fingerprints, far exceeding those of Gannett, the nation’s largest newspaper chain. But because it’s slobber journalism, it’s not all under one banner. Many were laundered through a network of vaguely named networks such as LGIS News Service, the Business Journals and Newsinator.

Quantity trumps quality. Nothing written by pink-slobbered journalism sites will win a Pultizer Prize, but sometimes one of his thousands of articles on a right-wing discussion topic manages to go viral. This is certainly the case with articles on “critical race theory” and the so-called “revival” of public schools.

Most notoriously, a post from a Chicago-based pink slime site published in May went viral on social media, particularly in right-wing circles, as it claimed suburban school administrators were implementing grading based on on race. The article prompted school officials in Oak Park, Illinois to issue a statement calling the report “not true”, but days after the story was proven false, media outlets from right such as One America News always reported it as fact.

The Oak Park case is unusual in that it broke out nationwide, but it is not an exceptional incident. A study published by the Popular Information Substack found that 28 pink slime sites in Virginia published 4,657 articles on critical race theory in schools between January and November 2021 – many of which contained unverified or false information – just in time for the election of Republican Glenn Youngkin, who rode a wave of anti-CRT sentiment to win the gubernatorial race. It’s hard to say whether these stories help fuel the trend or simply reflect it, but it’s clear that they reflect a partisan political model that has little to do with what’s happening on the land in a particular local community.

Every week, two more newspapers close and the “news deserts” grow

Pink Slime’s obsession with liberal ideology in public schools happens to match one of Timpone’s pet peeves. In 2017, he loudly kicked his children out of an affluent suburban Chicago public school over a move to hire more nonwhite teachers. “This is a small group of left-wing activists who want to push their social engineering on the rest of the community,” he said. “They send teachers to indoctrination camps run by anti-racist consultants.”

The response from Democrats was lackluster. Andrew Yang was the only Democratic presidential candidate in 2020 to make local news grants a part of his campaign, and he is no longer a Democrat. During this same election cycle, ACRONYM, the center-left nonprofit media association behind Shadow Inc. million dollars in Courier Newsroom, a media company that runs eight pro-Democratic news websites in states keys to the swing seem to be respectable local newspapers with folk names like Copper Courier in Arizona and Keystone in Pennsylvania. Articles such as “Sinema, Kelly, Join Bipartisan Group of Senators on Historic Gun Reform Proposal” and “Phoenix Lawyer Known for Defending Election Integrity, Invest in Ed, Nominaled to 9th Circuit” – both written by an undergrad at Arizona State – read like glorified ads for Democrats.

Congress was in no rush to help; The Local Journalism Sustainability Act was first introduced in the House nearly two years ago and has languished since then — despite some bipartisan support for what is now an issue that potentially threatens both sides. The bill offers tax credits meant to fund local newspapers and small nonprofits at a time when pink slime is increasingly the public’s main course instead of an add-on.

Here in the Mobile area, where I live, we have no daily newspapers printed for a population of over 430,000 people. I don’t think I’m the only one hungry for the real thing.
