MIUI 13: what to expect from Xiaomi’s new Android version?

Published

on

When Android 12 debuts on October 4th, it’s almost on the horizon. In the same boat, bespoke versions of the system developed by Google’s partner cell phone manufacturers are traveling as passengers and are expected to arrive around the same time as Google’s system. If so, they would be very close to the presentation.

One of the most important in this pie is MIUI 13, a user interface customized by Xiaomi that is practically guaranteed to be released by the end of 2021 Kanaltech now presents the main rumors about MIUI 13.

MIUI 13: release date

It is not yet possible to specify a specific day for the launch of MIUI 13, as not even Xiaomi guarantees a specific date for the debut. However, manufacturer CEO Lei Jun announced in a lecture that the operating system should appear at the end of 2021 – so the new year does not go by.

It’s a very spacious window of time for the new, but it shouldn’t be long before the system is available in open tests for more curious users. The fact is that the CT tells first hand about the arrival of MIUI 13 in a trial period so stay tuned.

MIUI 13: new look

Xiaomi’s UI shouldn’t throw away the excellent points of previous MIUI editions, so users of the brand can expect a look completely different from the design designed by Google, full of details and with the familiar whimsy of the Chinese manufacturer.

What is expected from this update is the renewal of standard icons, adjustments in the notification area and a revision of the most common elements in the user interface. In addition, animations, menus, effects, and other minor details should also change dramatically, as is the case with any major update.

So far it is too early to speculate about the influence of Material You on OS design. Xiaomi has always opted for a completely different look than pure Android and that would hardly change with MIUI 13. One can hope, however, that the dynamic theme will somehow manifest itself as it is a long-awaited feature of the robotic system.

MIUI 13: new features

More widgets

A big highlight of MIUI 13, inherited from Android 12, should be the renewal of widgets. Allegedly, the app add-ons are completely revised in the new version of the interface, now with rounded corners, a uniform look and with a lot of similarity to iOS, as you can see in the screenshot below.

virtual RAM

Putting the new, “expandable” RAM on the table could be one of the features of MIUI 13. The tool first appeared in tests in MIUI 12.5 and basically requires part of the phone’s internal memory as working memory. The functionality is nothing more than a stick, so don’t expect miracles on an older device.

privacy

One of the most important innovations in Android 12 is the privacy panel, a hub for information on camera access and location, e.g. B. Apps. In the basic system, the tool offers the option of viewing granted authorizations, usage times and quickly revoking authorizations.

Renovated floating windows

As a long-standing feature of MIUI, floating windows are great components to enhance the multitasking ability of the mobile phone’s big screen. The feature is already excellent in MIUI 12, and in the new edition it tends to get even better, allowing users to navigate different apps even if they don’t support split-screen mode.

It’s all a rumor, but for a while

When Android 12 finally comes out, the manufacturers’ race will begin as to who will update their own devices first – and Xiaomi often does a good job of supporting updates. October is going to be a busy month for smartphone software, so you can expect the company to at least announce a date to open a testing program to the general public.

However, it is very likely that the first moment of the test phase will be reserved exclusively for the Chinese market. Xiaomi prefers its home country for the latest updates as it is one of its main user bases.

Black Adam | Teaser makes the hero’s absurd level of power clear

Published

on

By

As promised, the long-awaited black adam finally showed up. After months of promises and little teasers from actor Dwayne Johnson, Warner Bros. released a short excerpt that reveals a little of what we can expect from the character on his big screen – including his final appearance, which with what remains a mystery until then.

According to Johnson, the film is still in post-production so there wasn’t much to show. Still, a teaser was presented with what appears to be the beginning of the plot. In the scene we see a group of explorers arriving at the antihero’s tomb in Kahndaq, which makes him wake up.

So in about a minute we’ll see Black Adam appear in front of the group in all his size and height, and with just one touch dissolve a man. Plus, it’s completely invulnerable to bullets and fast enough to intercept a shot in midair as if it were nothing. In other words, he’s able to do anything Superman can do, but without the moral constraints of the Man of Steel.

Visually, Black Adam looks like an even darker version of Shazam – which makes perfect sense since the character was originally born as the hero’s enemy and his powers have the same origin – with the iconic breast stud. The big difference is that the black costume has some embossed details that are very reminiscent of Egyptian inscriptions or something similar.

Also, the hood prevents us from seeing if The Rock’s face has any decorations. On the other hand, it’s pretty clear that the actor is huge and that he wasn’t kidding when he said that his muscles have never been as big as this time around. When it came to showing his strength, he was successful.

Justice Society and Khandaq

Warner also released another teaser during the DC Fandome that mixes backstage scenes, concept art, and some pre-made scenes from the film that add a little bigger dimension to what’s to come. One example of this is that there are drawings that show what the kingdom of Khandaq, the birthplace of Black Adam, will look like, and even glimpses of his life before he became the antihero presented to us, something in between a gladiator and a monarch.

However, what stands out the most about this miniclip is the involvement of the Justice Society, the group of heroes who will cross paths with Black Adam in the film. And while we don’t have the final looks of Hawksbill (Aldis Hodge), Cyclone (Quintessa Swindell), Atom Crusher (Noah Centineo), and Lord Fate (Pierce Brosnan), the logo of each of those heroes has already been revealed and set the stage for revelation that is still on the way.

The highlight here is on Brosnan himself. Aside from making it very clear that he wasn’t even 10 years James Bond in the franchise 007 were as great as anything Warner builds with black adam, we have a short scene of your character in the film that gives us a clue of what is going to happen.

In the excerpt, Mr. Fate appears and reads Adrianna Tomaz (Sarah Shahi) who many believe is the reincarnation of Isis, the protagonist’s wife. If what is suggested is correct, it will be Brosnan’s character who will be responsible for awakening the girl’s powers and bringing the heroine into the modern age – possibly to curb Black Adam’s anger.

With all of this in mind, fans have nothing to complain about with the news that will be presented during the DC Fandome. Although everything is still very raw, the long-awaited feature has received weighty news that is a good illustration of what the film is supposed to present in terms of power scale, tone, and special guest appearances. Now just wait until July 29th, 2022 to see what black adam reserve us.

The Galaxy S22 line has released more renders with new looks and dimensions

Published

By

The Galaxy S22 range has been the focus of several rumors in recent weeks, particularly due to a new look for the Galaxy S22 Ultra and smaller dimensions for the other two models in the series, the Galaxy S22 and the Galaxy S22 Plus. Recently released new images confirm this information through 3D renderings and CAD drawn designs.

Images from the LetsGoDigital portal illustrate how the most expensive smartphone in the line should be. Contrary to previous rumors, the S22 Ultra is not said to have a module that connects all of the rear view cameras, and therefore the lenses must be attached directly to the rear cover. The change should only be aesthetic, because the placement of all cameras, sensors and flash remains the same as with the Galaxy S21 Ultra. The information has been verified through the popular @ UniverseIce profile.

On the front, the Galaxy S22 Ultra should have a display with a heavily curved aspect on the sides, a feature that was toned down in previous generations of the phone. The selfies camera will remain in a hole in the center of the top of the screen with the speaker near the top.

One of the most important innovations of the S22 Ultra is the implementation of a special compartment for the S Pen stylus in order to attract fans of the Note line, which has not been updated since 2020. FrontTron Twitter profile, the new input is on the bottom of the device, closest to the left corner and near the lower speaker, USB-C input and microphone.

The @ FrontTron release also confirmed the dimensions of all devices on the line, with differences in the size of the three smartphones. The Galaxy S22 will be 145 x 70 x 7 mm (compared to 151 x 71 x 7 mm on the Galaxy S21), while the S22 Plus will be 157 x 75 x 7 mm (compared to 161 x 75 x 7 mm on the Galaxy) has S21 Plus) and the S22 Ultra with 163 x 77 x 9 mm (vs. 165 x 75 x 9 mm for the Galaxy S21 Ultra).

While the change in numbers seems subtle, it could mean relevant changes in the ergonomics of the devices, with a larger footprint and a screen ratio between 19.3: 9 and 19.5: 9 – for comparison purposes, the S21 range has a 20: 9 -Relationship. On the front, the S22 and S22 Plus should stay with symmetrical edges, but they may be significantly thinner.

With the new size, some changes are to be made in the battery aspect. The capacity of the S22 will be reduced from 4,000 mAh to 3,700 mAh, while that of the S22 Plus will be increased from 4,800 mAh to 4,500 mAh – only the S22 Ultra will remain with the same 5,000 mAh energy tank.

There’s no official date for the launch of the Galaxy S22 range yet, but it is possible that it will be released in January 2022, about a year after the S21 range was launched.
