LG G7 ThinQ coming with a 6.1 inch "Super Bright Display" at 1000 nits, New Second Screen and will consume 30% less power.

LG Electronics Inc. said Wednesday its upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG G7 ThinQ, set to be unveiled next month, will come with the brightest display in the industry.

The South Korean tech giant said the LG G7's "Super Bright Display" will come with brightness of a whopping 1,000 nits, a measure that refers to one candela per square meter. A higher figure indicates a brighter display.

LG said the average smartphone has a brightness of 500 to 600 nits, claiming users will enjoy its vivid 6.1-inch screen in any outdoor environment.

Concerning battery consumption, LG said the upcoming smartphone will consume 30 percent less power compared with the previous G6, hinting that users will be able to enjoy a "Super Bright Display" without being concerned about battery shortage.

The company said it also reduced the bezel of the G7 significantly compared with the G6 and added what it calls a "New Second Screen" at the top of the display, which will be similar to the notch design of U.S. tech giant Apple Inc.'s iPhone X. LG said the new feature marks an update from the second screen that was first adopted by the company in 2015.

Users will also customize how their smartphones display major colors, namely red, green and blue. They will also choose from various display modes for different content, including cinema, sports and games.

LG added the G7 display will combine the company's technology know-how gained both from TVs and smartphones.

The smartphone will be introduced in New York on May 2, followed by another launch event in Seoul the following day. The South Korean tech giant said the upcoming smartphone will become its first G model to come with "ThinQ" in its title, which is LG Electronics' AI vision that centers on "thinking from consumers' perspective."

1Q 2018: PC market share WorldWide: HP 22.6%, Lenovo 20.4%, Dell 16.9%, Acer 6.8% says IDC.





Worldwide shipments of traditional PCs (desktop, notebook, and workstation) totaled 60.4 million units and recorded flat (0.0%) year-on-year growth in the first quarter of 2018 (1Q18), according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker. The results exceeded the earlier forecast of a 1.5% decline and marks the third consecutive quarter where traditional PC shipment volume has hovered around flat growth year on year.

Although the numbers are preliminary, the data seems to indicate a continued build up in commercial renewal activity as the main driver for the stabilizing trend. Business uptake of Windows 10 systems appear to be steadily ongoing, benefitting commercially-focused PC OEMs such as HP, Dell, and Lenovo. 

Demand for premium notebooks in both the consumer and commercial segments have also helped major vendors retain better margins and garner buyer interest. Furthermore, continued focus on gaming systems has injected slight improvement in pockets of the consumer space. Unlike the first quarter of 2017, an improved supply of key notebook components also loosened pressures on both supply and pricing, leading to some recovery of share for the smaller vendors.

From a geographic perspective, mature markets uniformly fared positively. The U.S. market saw modest growth after six quarters of year-on-year declines and Japan continued with its seventh consecutive quarter of growth. Emerging markets were more of a mixed bag as Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APeJ) shrank for the quarter while Latin America continued to recover positively against a tough 2017.

"The component shortage that initially impacted portions of 2017 led some vendors to stock up inventory to avoid expected component price hikes, and that led to some concerns of excess stock that would be hard to digest in subsequent quarters," said Jay Chou, research manager with IDC's P ersona l C omputing Device Tracker. "However, the market is continuing on a resilient path that should see modest commercial momentum through 2020."

"The year kicked off with optimism returning to the U.S. PC market, especially on the notebook side," said Neha Mahajan, senior research analyst, Devices & Displays. "A likely rise in commercial activity amidst a positive economic environment is expected to further strengthen demand. The retail platform too shows signs of stability especially with a fast-growing gaming community adding to the confidence."

Regional Highlights

The USA market saw a promising opening quarter for the year with almost all major vendors reporting increases in notebook sales. Overall, total PC shipments for 1Q18 stood at 13.5 million units.

In Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), the traditional PC market showed stable growth for the quarter, benefiting from a positive performance across both product categories. Continued mobility adoption and increased customer awareness of the value proposition of more premium devices enabled notebooks to maintain a growth trajectory. On the other side, desktops posted strong results, driven by the growing gaming market as well as long-awaited commercial device refreshes in certain sub regions.

The APeJ traditional PC market ended the quarter slightly short of expectations. India and Indonesia showed better than anticipated results, but the PC market in China performed below forecast with shipments weakened by a smaller number of promotions in the consumer segment and softer demand from the public sector.

The Japan commercial market was a couple points below expectations due to slowing of the momentum seen in 4Q17, but it still maintained healthy growth in 1Q18. The consumer segment was slightly better than the previous quarter in term of growth, but IDC believes shipments during the first three quarters of 2017 affected future demand, causing growth to decelerate in 4Q17 and after.

Company Highlights

HP Inc. maintained a comfortable lead over all others in the market with its eighth consecutive quarter of overall growth (up 4.3% year on year) and growth in all regions except Latin America.

Lenovo saw a flat quarter in 1Q18, the third consecutive quarter in which the company saw year-on-year volume stabilize with flat global growth and a slower pace of decline in the U.S.

Dell Inc. posted the strongest year-on-year growth out of all the major companies, growing 6.4% and buoyed by strong performances in nearly every region.

Acer held onto the fourth position. Its ongoing expansion into gaming and continued investments in Chromebooks have paid dividends for the company, but also caused some tough going in other arenas.

Apple finished the quarter in the fifth position with a year-on-year decline in shipments of 4.8%.

Zipline launches the Wolrd`s First Faster commercial delivery drone that save lifes. Video. Press Release.


Image result for zipline drone






Zipline’s mission is to bring life-saving medicine to the most difficult to reach places on the planet. 


Zipline delivery drones services brings deliveries in the Republic of Rwanda, Central/Eastern Africa for a main delivery of blood and vaccines  in a fast way, reducing the delivery time from hours of driving to 15 minutes to an hospital, making possible to make a blood tranfusion or vaccine application in time to prevent deaths.

The orders of blood and vaccines are made via SMS or Whatsapp.

More than two billion people lack adequate access to essential medical products, such as blood and vaccines, due to challenging terrain and gaps in infrastructure. 

Zipline improves access to these supplies by flying over impassable mountains and washed-out roads, delivering directly to remote clinics. We centralize supply and provide on-demand deliveries, completely reducing waste and stock-outs. 

Zipline provides a seamless delivery system at an affordable price, obsessing over every detail, so you can focus on patient health.

What is new?

The new aircraft is part of a complete redesign of Zipline’s logistics system, which dramatically improves the system’s launch, autonomous flight, and landing capabilities. The improvements will decrease the amount of time between Zipline’s receipt of an order and launch of a fulfilment flight from 10 minutes to 1, increase the number of daily delivery flights that each Zipline distribution center can make from 50 to 500, and expand the radius of each distribution center to
serve populations of up to 10 million people.

Zipline’s new delivery vehicle is an autonomous fixed-wing style airplane. The plane is capable of flying at a top speed of 128 km/h, and a cruising speed of 101 km/h—21 km/h faster than the previous generation of aircraft—with a round trip range of 160 kilometers carrying up to 1.75 kilos of cargo. 

The new plane is capable of flying four times faster than the average quadcopter drone and can serve an area 200 times as large.


Press Release:

ZIPLINE LAUNCHES FASTEST DELIVERY DRONE IN THE WORLD
Complete Overhaul Of Logistics and Delivery Service to Enable Global Expansion
Ready for Flight in the United States and Around the World

Half Moon Bay, California April 3, 2018—Today, Zipline unveiled the fastest commercial delivery drone on earth. Zipline’s mission is to bring life-saving medicine to the most difficult to reach places on the planet. The Silicon Valley-based company operates the world’s first and only  national scale drone delivery system, making thousands of deliveries per year. Zipline’s newest  generation of autonomous aircraft flies farther, faster and with more cargo than was ever before  possible— even in high altitude, heavy wind, or rain.

The new aircraft is part of a complete redesign of Zipline’s logistics system, which dramatically  improves the system’s launch, autonomous flight, and landing capabilities. The improvements  will decrease the amount of time between Zipline’s receipt of an order and launch of a fulfilment  flight from 10 minutes to 1, increase the number of daily delivery flights that each Zipline  distribution center can make from 50 to 500, and expand the radius of each distribution center to  serve populations of up to 10 million people.

Zipline’s new delivery vehicle is an autonomous fixed-wing style airplane. The plane is capable  of flying at a top speed of 128 km/h, and a cruising speed of 101 km/h—21 km/h faster than the  previous generation of aircraft—with a round trip range of 160 kilometers carrying up to 1.75 kilos of cargo. The new plane is capable of flying four times faster than the average quadcopter  drone and can serve an area 200 times as large.

“Our first generation aircraft and logistics system allowed us to create the first and only drone  delivery service in the world, which is helping to save lives in Rwanda every day,” said Zipline  CEO Keller Rinaudo. “We’ve taken everything Zipline has learned making thousands of  life-critical deliveries and flying hundreds of thousands of kilometers and redesigned our entire  system and operation from top to bottom. The new aircraft and distribution center system we’re  unveiling today will help Zipline scale to meet the needs of countries around the  world—including the United States.”

Progress In Rwanda To Date
In October of 2016, Zipline launched the world’s first national drone delivery operation in
Rwanda. The company was contracted by the Government of Rwanda to establish one
distribution center with 15 drones to deliver blood, plasma and platelets to twenty one hospitals  across the western half of the country. Since launching the service in Rwanda, Zipline has flown  300,000 km, delivering 7,000 units of blood over 4,000 flights, approximately a third of which  have been in emergency life-saving situations.

The company is now delivering more than 20% of Rwanda’s blood supply outside of the capital,  Kigali. In addition to its impact on lifesaving emergency situations, Zipline’s just-in-time drone  delivery has helped transform the country’s medical supply chain. To date, instant drone  delivery has helped ensure that hospitals always have access to blood products, increasing the  use of some blood products by 175% and reducing waste and spoilage by over 95%. Zipline is  in the process of opening its second distribution center in Rwanda, which will help bring the  entire country within range of its life-saving service.

Drone Delivery In The United States and Beyond
Zipline is working with state governments across the country to launch its medical drone delivery as a part of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) recently announced UAS Integration Pilot Program (UASIPP). The FAA created the UASIPP as an opportunity for state, local, and  tribal governments to partner with the private sector to accelerate the development and  deployment of safe commercial drone innovation in the country.

A key priority of the program is integrating autonomous, beyond visual line of sight flights over  populated areas into the FAA’s National Airspace System. The FAA is expected to formally  approve UASIPP projects in the coming weeks and enter into formal Memorandums of  Agreement with applicants by May 7th, 2018. Zipline projects chosen as a part of this process  are expected to commence operation by the close of 2018.

“Billions of people on earth lack access to critical medicine,” said Zipline CEO Keller Rinaudo.

“In East Africa, Zipline’s drones bring people the medicine they need, when they need it in a
way that reduces waste, cost and inventory while increasing access and saving lives. We’ve
been hard at work to improve our technology and are ready to help save lives in America and around the world.”

In addition to plans to expand its service to the United States later this year, Zipline announced in August of 2017 plans to launch the world’s most extensive drone delivery service in Tanzania  to provide emergency on-demand access to critical and life-saving medicines. Zipline and the  government of Tanzania plan to use drone delivery for blood transfusion supplies, emergency  vaccines, HIV medications, antimalarials, antibiotics, lab reagents, and basic surgical supplies.

The scale of the operation will be capable of making up to 2,000 life-saving deliveries per day to  over one thousand health facilities, serving 10 million people across the country.

About Zipline
Zipline is an automated logistics company based in California. The company—which includes seasoned aerospace veterans from teams like SpaceX, Google, Boeing, and NASA—designs and operates an autonomous system for delivering lifesaving medicine to the world’s most difficult to reach places.

delivery of medicines and other products at low cost without using a drop of gasoline. Some of the smartest investors in the world support Zipline, including Sequoia Capital, Katalyst Ventures, a16z, Google Ventures, SV Angel, Subtraction Capital, Yahoo founder Jerry Yang, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, and Stanford University.

Samsung Patent for a Multi-Folding tablet with phisical keyboard was granted.







Samsung was granted a design patent for a multi-fold tablet back in September 2016 and last Tuesday they were granted at least their second utility patent for a multi-fold tablet.

Samsung's granted patent covers a multifold tablet as presented in patent FIGS. 1A and 1B above. When the sides of the tablet display are folded in, they protect the tablet's main display. This is illustrated in patent figure 6.

As noted in patent FIG. 4 above, the system behind the folding capability includes a 'sensing unit' which could include at least one of a pressure sensor, an illumination sensor, a proximity sensor, an acceleration sensor, an angular velocity sensor, a gyro sensor, a strain gauge sensor, and a gravity sensor. 

Samsung's patent FIG. 5B below illustrates a front view of the flexible display including a sub display unit and a key input unit; FIG. 6 illustrates front view of the flexible display including a transparent cover, allowing messages, time, date to be seen through the cover.

Samsung further noted that "When a user intends to use a medium-sized display screen, the configuration of the flexible display panel #10 can be deformed to the second configuration. For example, when the user intends to write a text message, the flexible display panel can be deformed to the second configuration. 

When folded, Samsung refers to the transparent cover as "a quick-view display" for rapid functions to provide simple information to the user such a received text message, received call, an alarm and so forth. 

Samsung further notes that the tablet could provide the user with telephony. Samsung doesn't dive into the telephony aspect of the tablet other than to state that "a user can make a call by using the flexible display in a third configuration." 

Samsung's granted patent was published by USPTO last week. It was originally filed in April 2015 and was publicized as a patent application in June 2016.

Samsung is searching for its most creative way of foldable tablet to come out with something really new and different from competitors. Will this concept see the light? Time will tell.

Samsung Galaxy S9 mini SM-G8850 stops by AnTuTu benchmark. More Specifications.

We reported before about the SM-G8850 Samsung Galaxy S9 as mini dual sim here with these specifications and we are adding as NEW the ones on the AnTuTu benchmark list:

Specifications.
5.8 inch screen/5.6 rounded. QHD+ S-AMOLED NEW 2220x1080px
3000 mAH Battery
Dual SIM card
Octa Core 2.8GHz NEW Qualcomm SnapDragon 660 with Adreno 512
RAM 4GB/6GB
NEW ROM 64GB
Android 8.0
Dual cameras 8 MP each NEW to be confirmed.
expansion card up to 256GB
Video shooting support 1080p
colors: black and blue

The listing revealed the upcoming smartphone would sport the same glass and metal sandwich design as the Galaxy S9 duo, but it will feature a smaller display (5.6-inch one, to be precise) with lower resolution.

To the back of the S9 Mini, there are two vertically aligned cameras same as the ones present on the iPhone X. They’re said to be two 12MP sensors without the variable aperture feature which we saw on the Galaxy S9, but they’ll be capable mid-range cameras. There will be an 8MP front-facing camera, and the phone will be armed with a 3000mAh battery.

The interesting thing here is that on Geekbench the cpu is also Snapdragon 660 but the model number is SM-G8750 instead of SM-G8850, the first with a single SIM and the second with a dual SIM.

The question is : Are both of them a mini version of the Galaxy S9? Which of them is the Galaxy S9 Lite code name A Star? Which is going to see the light on the real world?

The device on AnTuTu benchmark achieved a score of 136483, which is in-line with other Snapdragon 660 devices available in the market today such as the Nokia 7 Plus, Xiaomi Mi Note 3 and more. 

With the device paying a visit to the benchmark apps, it is safe to presume the launch date is nearing.
