Honor V40 is set to launch on January 22 and the company has already shared with us the first look at this upcoming Honor smartphone featuring its design and camera system.
Now a report from Lenta Ru claims that the Honor V40 will be the first Honor smartphone that will come with Google Mobile Services (GMS) since its U.S. restrictions on Huawei in 2019. This will also help Honor to sell smartphones in the European market.
Back in May 2019, Huawei was added to the U.S. entity list, which prohibits the company from using U.S. technologies and software including Google Mobile Services. Thereafter, Huawei and Honor both started launching their smartphone with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS).
Later last year, Huawei decided to sell its subsidiary, Honor to Shenzhen Zhixin New Information Technology, a consortium of over 30 agents and dealers.
After the separation, Honor has its own management, and now, Huawei has officially parted ways with its former smartphone subbrand. Following this, Honor is now eligible to get its partnership back with Google and chipmaker such as Qualcomm.
According to a previous report, Honor V40 sports a 6.72-inch AMOLED display and has large curved edges on the left and right sides. It’ll be powered by MediaTek Dimensity 1000+ processor, 120Hz refresh rate and 300Hz touch sampling rate, 50MP triple rear camera system, and a dual front camera system.
Huawei completes 5G RedCap technology verification to reduce 5G base station cost
Huawei has recently initiated the verification test of the world’s first 5G Redcap key technology. And the results are shocking! Ultimately, the technology can control and reduce the cost of 5G base stations to the level of 4G.
Yes! That’s right. The technology came into existence with the help of the IMT-2022 (5G) promotion group of MTNet. The industry has just completed the build-up of this useful 5G R17 RedCap technology and began its testing for base station and chip technology.
The testing comprised a few specific elements. For instance, access to RedCap UD, handover, initial BWP shared between RedCap UE and ordinary 5G UE, independent uplink/downlink initial BWP of RedCap UE, and uplink and downlink rate.
To begin the test procedure, the group used Huawei’s 5G communication base station and some high-end chips from famous Chinese chip makers. While testing, Huawei realized that the new 5G RedCap technology can decrease the expense of 5G base stations to the 4G base station grade.
So far, the 5G base station is 10 to 15 times more expensive than the 4G base station. On the other hand, the 5G base stations excessively consume more power which is another drawback. And let’s not forget about the 5G modules that are still availed at a high rate.
However, in this expense-oriented field, 5G RedCap technology has appeared as a boon for manufacturers. In comparison to the original cost of deploying one base station, Huawei can now deploy more than three stations.
Reduction in cost is directly proportional to 5G Upgrades
Alternatively, the reduction in the cost of 5G modules and base stations permits more smart gadgets to upgrade to the 5G level. Besides, IoT devices can now access the 5G networks at a cheaper rate. This is one of the best technology that will play wonders in all the aspects related to the 5G networks.
Stadia: Another big Google product failed and shutting down
Google has now made a public announcement to end the gaming service Stadia entirely. Although Stadia was a massive cloud gaming service but failed. It hasn’t garnered user traction that Google was not able to attract an expected number of users.
However, Google is at least making an effort to set things right by issuing refunds on all Stadia hardware that was purchased through the Google Store, even though the stadia services failed news will undoubtedly have a significant negative impact on Stadia supporters.
Through January 18, 2023, players will have access to their game collection and be able to play so they can finish their final play sessions. By mid-January 2023, the majority of refunds ought to be finished.
To be noted, The Google+, Orkut, and Google Allo apps are the services that had faced the same situation as Stadia now.
After Google Buzz, Google Friend Connect, and Orkut, Google+ was the company’s fourth effort into social networks. In order to compete with websites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Tumblr, it took the position of Google Buzz in 2011.
But further Google shut it down due to insecure users’ data the hackers and this makes it not survive for long on social media.
This application debuted just two weeks before Facebook, it allows users to meet their old friends. Orkut’s user base decreased as a result of the increase in fake accounts, duplicate profiles, and hate groups. and in 2014 Google announced to shut it down.
It is supported for both Android and iOS devices users to make instant messages. It’s just like the WhatsApp application, if you have the contact number of your friend then your can exchange messages, voice note files, images, and more using the app.
And Its AL-powered feature makes it popular among users. However, a glitch in the assistant in 2017 led to the voice assistant sharing search results from a user’s discussion and this made Allo shut down in 2018.
