Live smartphone with Snapdragon 898 appeared on GeekBench

Current Chipset QualcommSnapdragon 888+ was released a few weeks ago. In fact, this is a Snapdragon 888 with a slightly overclocked main core. The next generation chipset is already in development – Snapdragon 898 or 895.

It hasn’t been officially done yet, but it was visible in information leaks. The most recent was made on GeekBench, where a mysterious prototype appeared. vivo obviously already testing a new chipset.

The vivo V2102A model number will not be the one we see on the latest device as it is clearly a prototype build. It has its own kernels CPU often less than expected. The device in question appears to be powered by a new 2.42 GHz Cortex-X2 Super Core, three Cortex-A710 Power cores up to 2.17 GHz, and four Cortex-A510 cores up to 1.79 GHz.

We already know from leaks that the Cortex-X2 core in Snapdragon 898 or 895, depending on what Qualcomm decides on the nomenclature, should overclock to 3.09 GHz – even higher than the X1 core overclocked inside the Snapdragon 888 +.

The “big” and “LITTLE” cores are the first to have the ARMv9 architecture and promise energy efficiency improvements of up to 30%. The X2 core should be 16% faster than the X1 predecessor. Snapdragon 898/895 itself is likely to use pSamsung 4nm manufacturing process introduce the modern GPU Adreno 730 as well as the new X65 modem 5Gcapable of speeds up to 10 Gbps. We also hope to see updated ISPs and NPUs.

It’s no secret that several Chinese manufacturers are already hard at work on prototypes with the new Snapdragon 898 chipset, so it makes sense to expect more leaks in the coming days and weeks until we see the final device with the Snapdragon 898 chipset.

Google pushes Apple for new RCS messaging campaign

Google pushes Apple for new RCS messaging campaign

O Google launched another advertising campaign to put pressure on Apple Adopt the RCS standard for instant messaging. “Get The Message” is a short video demonstrating the wide availability of the messaging format across a wide variety of brands using Android and highlighting Apple’s neglect.

The images provide a very simple explanation of what RCS is and how the protocol can improve online chat. The structure of the format allows you to send multimedia messages, check the status of reading and much more, creating competition for services such as whatsapp e Telegram.

 

Campaign not the reference to distinguishing the colors of the balloons goes unnoticed, obviously. Text field colors sparked controversy a few months ago when the Wall Street Journal reported on the complex stigmatization of “green balls,” the palette used by iOS to represent messages received in the SMS standard (usually sent from Android devices). . . .

“Apple just needs to think differently,” says the commercial, referring to Apple’s old “Think Different” slogan.

old trick

Within a few months Google tries to convince Apple accept the RCS protocol as one of the formats accepted by iMessage, the default messaging app for iPhone. Adding a format would actually facilitate communication between users of different platforms, but the debate goes deeper.

O The RCS format started slowly and suffered greatly from dependence on telephone operators. – something that in some way created a certain prejudice against technology. It was difficult to know when this standard was used for messaging, how much it cost, and what its benefits were. The situation began to change in 2019, when Google took over the implementation of the protocol.

From there, the reach of RCS has been greatly extended to Android devices. The popularity of the protocol, which simplifies communication, has spurred the adoption of Google Messages, the company’s dedicated SMS and RCS chat application.

However, one final hurdle is missing: Apple. iMessage may not be one of the strongest apps in Brazil (which is dominated by WhatsApp), but its presence in other regions of the world such as the US is very important.

Stuck with Apple

However, this condition of exclusivity creates a vicious circle – and Apple knows it. While iMessage provides simplified communication between Apple consumers, the trend is that they will continue to buy new iPhones. A user trying to get out of this “bubble” can be excluded from most conversations between friends, teachers, colleagues and family, as a Wall Street Journal article found.

So if Apple adopted the RCS standard, iPhone owners would have another opportunity to leave the company’s ecosystem, even if they had to try an Android phone. The move will not generate direct profit for Google, but buying more Android devices will inevitably increase the company’s market share in this segment.

The Earth was hit by the solar wind at a speed of 600 kilometers per second

Ilustração vento solar a atingir a Terra

We really do not live in peacetime. There is talk of extreme droughts, wars, fires, economic crises, and even in space, our star insists on whipping the planet with solar winds that surprise scientists who study these phenomena. The most recent case was a solar storm that hit Earth over the weekend. Without warning, the winds “hit” our planet in a completely unexpected way.

On Sunday, a stream of solar wind hit the Earth’s magnetic field, the speed of which reached more than 600 kilometers per second.

As we already mentioned, our star is in its 25th cycle, and when it began, the researchers left an alert that this new 11-year period will not be as calm as the last one, which ended at the end of 2019.

Some events, such as the M4.4 class solar flare or the X-class flare that occurred in 2021, show ongoing activity on our star. By the way, we saw that a G1 class storm was predicted last week. According to NOAA, this event, which reached us on August 3, did not cause any problems and its origin was associated with a hole in the sun. as explained here.

The Earth received an unexpected impact at a speed of more than 600 kilometers per second

Without warning, a strong gust of solar wind hit Earth last Sunday. While it's not all that alarming - solar storms often hit our planet and cause spectacular auroras - it's strange that this storm was completely unexpected.

This event was not in the forecast, so the auroras that arose came as a surprise.

informed SpaceWeather.

The solar wind occurs when a stream of high-energy particles and plasma can no longer be held by the Sun's gravity and erupts towards the Earth. Because how our Sun works is still largely unknown, these emissions are thought to come from large, bright spots on the Sun known as "corona holes." These events taking place on a star have been observed for a long time, and there is a lot of observational work being done here on Earth.

Through this attention to holes, scientists have been able to create "predictions" of space weather. They can already predict when these solar storms or solar flares, also known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs), will come our way. Plus, you can already see how powerful they will be.

However, this does not mean that the Sun does not surprise us and hit us without warning, as it did over the weekend.

But how was this effect of solar winds on our planet discovered?

Earlier Sunday, NASA's Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) observed solar wind light streams that increased significantly and unexpectedly throughout the day. The cause of this solar storm is still unknown, but SpaceWeather suggests it may have been an early arrival of the solar wind, which is expected to come from an equatorial hole in the Sun's atmosphere two days later. Or it could be a lost coronal mass ejection (CME).

The inhomogeneity of the solar wind data at 00:45 UT on August 7 suggests a shock wave embedded in the solar wind.

Today, the active sun produces so many small explosions that it is easy to ignore the faint coronal ejections heading towards Earth.

This is how he described the SpaceWeather service.

It is interesting to note that as of today, August 9, the high-speed solar wind continues to beat the Earth's magnetic field, with records showing speeds as high as 551.3 kilometers per second. This new "attack" on our natural shield began this morning at 5 am.

The good news is that the solar wind is not harmful to us here on Earth. This is because we are safely protected by our planet's atmosphere.

However, when the "collision" is strong, our technologies can suffer from it. That's why they talk about it and we've seen it before problems with telecommunications satellites and, in extreme cases, with electrical networks.

Solar storm classified as G2

These winds have been classified as a moderate G2 solar storm - storms are classified as G1 at the bottom of the scale to G5 which is a powerful solar storm.

According to space meteorology, G2 storms can affect high-latitude energy systems and could impact spacecraft orbit forecasts.

In fact, it is already becoming a routine. This is due to the fact that this year there are especially many such events. However, as mentioned above, these 11 years of the 25th solar cycle will not be peaceful.
