Apple Ready to Bring Full Photoshop to the iPads in 2019

By James A.

We already played with Photoshop on the iPads for years now, even scoring a bit of evolution points thanks to the Apple Pencil, but Adobe wants to take things further. Now they’re talking about bringing full Photoshop to the iPads from 2019.

iOS 11 was all about making the iPad a sort of fully fledged PC, but some core apps just weren’t there yet. Full version Photoshop was among them, but even that one is ready to make the transition. A fresh report from Bloomberg says that Apple and Adobe will announce a full Photoshop for the iPad in October and launch it in 2019. Scott Belsky, chief product officer for Creative Cloud confirmed the arrival, but not the timeline.

Adobe offered until now solutions like the simple Photoshop Express, but it didn’t reach the same level of quality as a PC or Mac app, to be frank. That allowed rivals like Affinity Photo to make a dent in Adobe’s market share. People are using the iPad more and more for a variety of tasks, so why not make fully fledged photo editing one of them?

A big strategy shift happened back in October 2017, when Adobe introduced Lightroom CC and last month they did the same for video with Project Rush. We mentioned Rush, because that’s supposed to be the inspiration for the stripped down Photoshop ready for introduction next year. It’ll work and sync across devices, have the Sense AI tech and offer more options than ever.

Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 10.5 Leaks in Fresh Live Pictures, Gets FCC Certified

By James A.

Samsung isn’t only leaking the Galaxy Tab S4 these days, but also a new Galaxy Tab A model. It’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 10.5, which leaked via the FCC itself. As you’ve guessed probably, the device got certified and leaks ensued.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab A2 10.5 is expected to offer a 10.5 inch screen with narrow bezels and a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The device appeared over at the FCC with the model number SM-T590. It has narrow bezels only on the sides, but the top and bottom are pretty thick. The fingerprint scanner is nowhere to be seen and neither is a Home button, just like on the Galaxy Tab S4.

Samsung could be going all out on iris scanners this year, it appears. The device is also said to feature dual speakers at the bottom, flanking the USB Type-C port. That’s all we know so far and we can’t help but wonder if we’ll get an Exynos CPU inside or Snapdragon. Samsung also leaked the Galaxy Tab Advanced 2 and Advanced2 XL exactly one week ago, in live pics too, so it’s an entire series of devices, that’s just bursting to come up.

At least a few of them are probably meant for IFA 2018, while others are expected on August 9th, when the Galaxy Note 9 is inaugurated.

Apple Prepping 11 inch iPad Pro, New Macs, MacBooks and More for Fall 2018

By Radu Iorga

After yesterday’s release of new MacBook Pro models, the leak floodgates are open and reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo unveiled a real stampede of novelty onto us. No longer with KGI Securities, the analyst remains as prolific and visionary as ever over at TF International Securities. Let’s see the Fall 2018 roadmap he predicted.

We’re not going to focus on iPhones, Apple Watches or others, just tablets and PCs. So, the main thing that interests us is the iPad Pro model with Face ID and no Home button. Is have an updated 12.9 inch screen probably with a notch and also there’s a brand new 11 inch iPad. I imagine there will be more RAM inside, the latest Apple Axx CPUs and some camera bumps. It’s supposed to replace the 10.5 inch model.

The quantity of Apple Pencil patents this year and the fact Samsung is bringing a new S-Pen may also mean we’re about to see an Apple Pencil 2.0. Kuo predicts new Macs too, with improved CPUs, plus new MacBook models, an iMac with a seriously bumped up screen and a surprising product: a low price notebook. It’s not going to be a MacBook Air, but it could be “Air-ish”.

Apple is also scheduled to go full scale with AirPower and updated AirPods production. If all of these are real, we’re looking at a very wide gamut of tablets to pick from: 7.9 inch, 9.7 inch, 11 inch and 12.9 inch iPads, not to forget the 10.5 inch one. In spite of diagonal hikes, the bodies are expected to be compact and bezels narrow. Ming-Chi Kuo is usually spot on with rumors and we expect him to be right again.

I should highlight that the new Apple Pencil is my own prediction and not Kuo’s.

Alldocube X Tablet Runs on Android 8.1 and 2K Display, Promoted as “Galaxy Tab S4 Killer”

By Radu Iorga

Not every device arrives with such bold statements as being a “Galaxy Tab S4 Killer”, like the Alldocube X, particularly since the Samsung tablet isn’t even out yet. After reading the specs I have to say that I get its potential… so let’s check it out.

The Alldocube X is a 10.5 inch tablet, with a mere 6.9 mm waistline and just 500 grams in weight. It feels like it could even rival an iPad with these measurements. It’s got a Samsung AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels and promises wide color gamut, as well as great contrast. HDR and DCI-P3 are also available, it seems.

A special blue light filter has also been included and inside the device we find a hexa core MediaTek MT8176 processor, plus 4 GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 64 GB of eMMC storage. There’s also a microSD card slot and we even get the promise of AKM HiFi sound for a more immersive experience during movies. Fingerprint encryption is part of the package as well, protecting your privacy.

 

Alldocube X has a niftly crafted design and it measures a mere 245 x 175 x 6.9 mm, making it equal in size with the iPad Pro 10.5 inch version. An 8000 mAh battery also makes the cut, offering up to 72 hours of standby, 5.5 hours of heavy use and long battery life in general. The device even has MTK PE+ quick charging, offering up to 18W charging input, which can really shorten the charge time. People who sign up here will receive a 26% super early bird discount for the product.
