Lenovo Tab 7, Tab 7 Essential Tablets Debut, Prices Start at $80

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo launched today two new tablets in USA, the Tab 7 priced at $80 and the Tab 7 Essential, going for $100. These are clearly entry level models, with low resolutions and modest CPUs.

The Tab 7 Essential is actually the lower end model, with a 7 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display, while the Tab 7 packs a 7 inch 720p screen. Both devices get the same amount of RAM (1 GB) and 16 GB of storage, plus microSD. They are based on the MediaTek MT8161 CPU, a quad core chip which helps them run Android 7.0 Nougat. The selling point here is most likely the Dolby acoustics of these newcomers.

It’s no coincidence that these are long devices, with big top and bottom bezels, imagined so in order to let you grip the device better for video watching. Available in black or white, the products may make a sweet holiday gift, as a first slate for a toddler or a new device for an elder. Other features include a 5 MP main camera (2 MP for Essential), 2 MP front shooter, Bluetooth 5.0, WiFi and a battery good enough for about 15 hours of usage.

From what I’ve heard 4G LTE and dual SI Slots may also be part of the package.

Apple reportedly working with Intel to put 5G modem in future iPhones

By Valentina Palladino

While it will be some time before 5G LTE becomes standard, Apple is thinking ahead about how to best incorporate 5G technology into its iPhones. According to a Fast Company report, Apple has been working with Intel to incorporate the chipmaker’s 5G modems in future iPhones while talks with Qualcomm, the world’s biggest modem supplier, have been “limited.”

Qualcomm currently has a more advanced 5G modem than Intel does, but Intel reportedly has “multiple thousands” of employees working on improving its 5G chip. Intel first announced its 5G modem at CES 2017 and announced recently that it completed a “full end-to-end 5G call based on its early 5G silicon.” While Qualcomm’s 5G modem has more specialized carrier features, reports suggest that those features won’t be “widely adopted” by all carriers. Also, Qualcomm’s chips are particularly equipped to support CDMA networks but those may become obsolete over time as 5G infiltrates the industry.

An iPhone with a 5G modem would theoretically be capable of connection speeds of one gigabit per second or more, but the industry’s transition to support 5G will take some time. The report suggests that Intel could supply a 5G modem for an iPhone debuting in 2019 or 2020.

Apple’s iOS 11.1.2 fixes the cold weather input bug on the iPhone X

By Samuel Axon

Enlarge (credit: Samuel Axon)

Apple released iOS 11.1.2 for iPhones and iPads this afternoon. It’s a minor, bug-fix update that benefits iPhone X users who encountered issues after acquiring the new phone just under two weeks ago.

iOS 11.1.2’s patch notes are short and sweet. The update fixes just two problems. The first is “an issue where the iPhone X screen becomes temporarily unresponsive to touch after a rapid temperature drop.” Last week, some iPhone X owners began reporting on Reddit and elsewhere that their touchscreens became temporarily unresponsive when going outside into the cold.

Apple shared the following statement with The Loop:

OnePlus 5T hands-on—OnePlus offers $800 design at a $499 price

By Ron Amadeo

Ron Amadeo

OnePlus is back with another end-of-year “T” upgrade for its flagship. Last year it bumped the OnePlus 3 to “3T” with a slightly newer processor and a bigger battery. This year, there’s not much in the way of new specs to boast about, but the OnePlus 5T has an all-new front. OnePlus has taken a big leap with the 5T and modernized the design with slim bezels, software navigation buttons, and a rear fingerprint reader. This makes it look a lot like every other 2017 flagship, but the key for OnePlus is that the 5T is only $499 (€499, £449). This means you get flagship-class specs and design for $300 less than the competition.

OnePlus’ slim bezel design means the front is now sporting a 6-inch, 2160×1080 OLED display with an extra-tall 18:9 aspect ratio. OnePlus describes this as an “AMOLED” display, which is a Samsung trademark, so this is a Samsung display. Sure enough, you get a high-quality, crystal clear image even at low brightness, with none of the issues that have been plaguing LG-made OLED displays. Slimming down the bezels means removing nearly everything from the front that isn’t made of pixels, so in addition to moving the fingerprint reader to the back, the OnePlus 5’s capacitive navigation buttons are gone, replaced with on-screen buttons. The result is that OnePlus can upgrade from a 5.5-inch screen to 6 inches while keeping the phone body essentially the same size. In person, the OnePlus 5T looks every bit as good as an $800-$1,000 flagship smartphone.

Surface Book 2 review: Monster performance, but lightning hasn’t struck twice

By Peter Bright

Enlarge / The 15-inch Surface Book 2. (credit: Peter Bright)

Introduced a little over two years ago, Microsoft’s Surface Book was the hybrid laptop that I had long hoped the company would build. Like the Surface Pro, it worked as a true standalone tablet, but it had the all-important stiff hinge, making it suitable for use on your lap in a way that the Surface Pro’s kickstand and Type Covers never really supported.

The Surface Book was not just a useful form factor; it was also something of a technological showcase. Other hybrid designs I’ve used, such as the ThinkPad Helix, had clunky mechanical linkages between the tablet portion and the base. The Surface Book boasted a clever software-controlled system. The fulcrum hinge design, which helped keep the device balanced when the screen was open, is elegant and visually striking.

And to top it all off, the Surface Book came with an optional discrete GPU, with the GPU housed not in the tablet part but in the base. While we’ve seen many systems with switchable graphics—using the low-power integrated GPU unless you’re playing a game or similar and need the full power of the discrete chip—having the discrete GPU be in a separate component was an exciting twist.
