OnePlus 5T: i rumors su scheda tecnica, uscita e prezzo

Potrebbe essere davvero imminente OnePlus 5T che è protagonista di un render di ottima qualità che è stato pubblicato su Twitter da @Evleaks ossia Evan Blass. Per l’occasione, viene anche fatto il punto su tutte le voci a proposito della scheda tecnica di OnePlus 5T, che potrebbe offrire una serie di interessanti miglioramenti rispetto a OnePlus 5.

Inoltre, ci sarebbe un’indiretta conferma che sarà proprio 5T il modello pronto a debuttare e non OnePlus 6, seguendo così la sequenza che vede l’esemplare con la T negli anni dispari e quello senza negli anni pari. Facciamo il riepilogo della situazione rumors.

Di una certezza possiamo riportare: OnePlus è pronta a presentare un nuovo modello che andrà a seguire la popolare, seppur spesso altalenante nella fortuna, famiglia di smartphone del produttore cinese. Qui di seguito il nostro punto della situazione con le anticipazioni sulla scheda tecnica, funzionalità, uscita in Italia e possibile prezzo di vendita. Ricordiamo che l’ultimo modello uscito è stato OnePlus 5 e che si è parlato a lungo di un OnePlus 6.

Il tweet con foto di evleaks

Come ormai succede per ogni flagship prossimo venturo da ormai un lustro, Evan Blass alias Evleaks ha pubblicato su Twitter una foto con quello che sembra il design definitivo frontale di OnePlus 5T, ecco qui sotto il cinguettio con l’immagine.

L’estetica di OnePlus 5T sarà praticamente bezel-less ossia con cornici sottilissime così da occupare quasi tutto il fronte con lo schermo, mentre lo scanner delle impronte digitali dovrebbe posizionarsi sul retro del cellulare.

La scheda tecnica di OnePlus 5T

La possibile scheda tecnica di OnePlus 5T considererebbe dunque uno schermo da 6 pollici in formato 18:9 di tipo Optic AMOLED a risoluzione Full HD+ 2160 x 1080 pixel, scanner impronte sul retro, SoC Snapdragon 835 con GPU Adreno 540, 6/8 GB di RAM LPDDR4X-1866 dual channel e 64/128 GB interna non espandibile. Fotocamera posteriore doppia da 20 megapixel e OS Android 8.0 Oreo.

Uscita e prezzo di OnePlus 5T

Secondo il negozio online OppoMart, il prezzo di OnePlus 5T partirà da 549 dollari per la variante 6/64GB e da 649 dollari per il modello 8/128GB con un aumento netto di 100 dollari rispetto alla precedente versione e il completamento del passaggio del costo da flagship killer a flagship “friend”.

Kobo quadruples the storage for limited-edition Aura One e-reader

Enthusiasm for e-readers has slowed in recent years, meaning new entrants have to boldly differentiate or they'll fall under the wheels of Amazon's niche-dominating Kindle. Kobo's Aura One, released in August, is unique in the world of devices: It's waterproof, meaning you can finally take an e-reader into the bath, and has softer light for nighttime perusing. Now Kobo is releasing a limited edition of the device with 32GB of storage, quadruple the space of the original -- which is great news for fans of comics and manga.

Microsoft axes Outlook.com premium features

If you still want Premium's perks, you'll need to have an Office 365 subscription linked to one of Microsoft's email domains, whether it's Outlook.com, Hotmail, Live.com or MSN. You may also have to be patient, as the the features will take "several weeks" to roll out to Office 365 Home and Personal customers.

We've asked Microsoft if it can elaborate on the decision to cut Outlook.com Premium and will let you know what it says. Whatever the motivation, it's clear that Microsoft is putting a lot of stock in Office 365 -- the productivity service just became that much more tempting, even if it's at the expense of another offering.

Facebook exposed 126 million Americans to Russia-linked pages

There's more beyond that. Facebook also deleted over 170 Russia-linked Instagram accounts that had made about 120,000 posts, and it had discovered security threats against politicians that stemmed from APT28, the hacking team regularly connected to Russian military intelligence.

Facebook was quick to downplay the volume of Russian posts in its testimony. There were over 11 trillion total posts from Pages on Facebook between 2015 and 2017, the company said. And it's true that merely seeing a post doesn't mean you notice it, let alone that you believe what it says. However, that doesn't change that a significant portion of those 126 million people interacted with those posts. That's millions of people who unwittingly played a part in what appears to be a massive Russian disinformation campaign.

The company certainly isn't alone when Google and Twitter have also found evidence of meddling. This is a broader problem with how underprepared internet companies were to deal with such a broad attempt to influence the American public. However, Facebook doesn't look good in light of this testimony: it had initially claimed that its content didn't influence the election at all, and now it's admitting that Russian operators were wildly successful in sowing chaos (even if only some people fell for the ploy). The company's rush to fix its ad system before the 2018 mid-terms just took on an added sense of urgency.

What’s on TV: ‘Call of Duty,’ ‘Shameless’ and ‘The Dark Tower’

Last week we saw a monster gaming lineup, but this week the heavy hitter is Call of Duty: WWII. As that series takes a step back in time, we're also seeing the return of Bubsy and a Zoo Tycoon collection. On TV, CBS is premiering S.W.A.T. and The Good Wife has its season finale, while Netflix premieres Alias Grace, Greenleaf, 6 Days and The Big Family Cooking Showdown. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).

AT&T is working on an open-sourced AI project with Linux Foundation

The Acumos Project aims to provide tools for casual users, not data scientists, and will focus first on making apps and microservices. While The Linux Foundation's announcement was light on details, it noted that it will sustain the Acumos Project for some time and ATT and other founder Tech Mahindra will contribute code.

"Artificial intelligence is a critical tool for growing our business. However, the current state of today's AI environment is fractured, which creates a significant barrier to adoption," Mazin Gilbert, Vice President of Advanced Technology at ATT Labs said in a statement. "Acumos will expedite innovation and deployment of AI applications, and make them available to everyone."

Acumos Project code will become available nearer to the platform's launch in early 2018.

Google Earth is almost ready to work on Firefox

Back when the Earth team were working on the app for the web, they only had two ways to bring native code into a browser. They chose a method called "Native Client," which only Chrome supports but promised to create another version using WebAssembly, the open standard for running native code in the browser that's still in development. Now that WebAssembly has advanced enough for the team to use, they're finally been able to show off what the Firefox port of Earth would look like.

The great thing about WebAssembly is that it's supported not just by Chrome and Firefox, but also by Safari and Edge. So, once Google is done porting Earth over, you might be able to access all of its satellite imagery on almost any browser you want.

‘Dota 2’ Dueling Fates update includes extensive gameplay changes

Dueling Fates will include a revamped matchmaking rating for both ranked and unranked players, switching to a six-month seasonal system. This will ensure "MMR is both recent and accurate...which will lead to better quality games for everyone," wrote valve. Players will also get a profile medal based on their peak MMR in each season, with the first ranked season kicking off in two weeks.

In addition, a new Turbo Mode serves up more gold and experience, weakens defensive towers, and reduces respawn time, making it ideal for experimenting with new heroes or strategies. The Ability Draft is also getting a new interface, and the Guide system will be more easily accessible. Plus, there's a boatload of new items, talents, and drafting rules on the way, which you can read about on the Dota 2 site.

Samsung collects record profits, again

Last year at this time Samsung's profits suffered a blow due to exploding Galaxy Note 7s, but this year -- despite ongoing executive turmoil as it has appointed new presidents for three key divisions -- the product lineup is performing as expected. Not coincidentally, Samsung has announced it set a record high $12.91 billion operating profit for the third quarter (keeping the streak going), more than triple what it notched last year during the same period.

However, while the company called Galaxy Note 8 sales "strong" its mobile earnings actually declined as people opted for cheaper phones. The money is in Samsung's chips and displays, which into things like servers as well as phones -- whether they're Samsung Galaxys or something else, like its OLED screens that are in the soon-to-debut iPhone X.

Square’s full-fledged cash register will cost $999

Square (and Twitter) chief Jack Dorsey said its new product was custom-built for larger clients who feel that the Stand -- its point-of-sale system that turns an iPad into a cash register -- is too consumer-focused. Larger businesses have apparently been requesting a more professional system with a second screen where customers can see their orders.

Since this device caters specifically to larger customers, Square won't be retiring any of its older products anytime soon. Dorsey said Register was never meant to replace them, only to serve as an option for those who need it. "We can't be a service that says, 'Oh, you're too big for us,'" he explained.

The full-fledged point-of-sale system will set businesses back $999 or $49 per month for two years. While that's over thrice the price of a Stand, it already comes with everything it needs to work and doesn't need a separate iPad or phone anymore.
