Apple iPad Mini 5 Unveiled: Apple A12 CPU, Same Format, Apple Pencil Support

By James A.

Apple’s latest hardware products are iPads, it seems. The Cupertino giant unveiled a new iPad Mini after 4 years of no successor and also an iPad Air 10.5 inch today. We’ve covered the iPad Air already and now let’s see the iPad Mini 5. The newcomer has been so long overdue, that it was considered basically cancelled at some point.

The iPad Mini 5 keeps the format of the predecessor, with an unibody metal shell and thick bezels. It’s got a powerful CPU this time, the Apple A12, from the iPhone XS Max and XS. Apple claims that the performance is 3 times greater than the predecessors and 9 times higher in the graphical department. The screen is expected to be 25% brighter than the iPad Mini 4 and it also offers True Tone tech.

Apple Pencil is supported as well, at least the first gen model. The screen is said to offer 500 nits of brightness and the full specs list looks like this:

  • Display: 7.9 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixels
  • Processor: Apple A12
  • Storage: 64 GB, 256 GB
  • Camera: 8 MP back, 7 MP front
  • Battery: 19.1 Wh
  • Connectivity: audio jack, Lightning, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G, WiFi ac
  • Others: Touch ID fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers

 

We don’t have info about the RAM quantity, but my guess is around 2 or 3 GB. The iPad Mini 5 is going to be priced at $399 and the preorders start today. You’ll find it in shops next week, in Silver, Gray and Rose Gold, starting at $399. The highest end 4G model with 256 GB of storage goes to $679.

Nintendo Switch 2019 Gets Rendered and It’s Expected to Have 4K Graphics

By James A.

Nintendo Switch is one of the best selling consoles out there and people have been hyped for a sequel for a while now. The device has been rendered by Letsgodigital.org, who also published some details about specs, including 4K support.

Nintendo Switch 2 is expected to arrive in the first half of 2019. The source of the info is Japanese site Gamepedia, claiming that Nintendo is going to implement a new SoC, that will give a bump up in game performance. The memory grows from 4 GB to 8 GB RAM. Storage goes from 32 GB to as much as 128 GB. Nintendo Switch will have 4K graphics, but my guess is that it’ll output 4K to a TV, rather than have it on the screen.

I say that it has a Full HD resolution on its own screen. The 6.2 inch screen could also need some growth, since even the iPhone XS Max has a bigger diagonal. Portability is still key and we should also get new generations of Joy Cons. Nintendo is expected to opt for LCD, not OLED, considering the high demand for that panel, which is hard to come by.

The good news is that we’ll also get backwards compatibility, so you can pay existing games on the new system. I could also do with higher quality materials and better way of attaching joysticks.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Things I Do Not Want To Hear In 2019! Stop The Madness

By Tim

It is time again for the Sunday morning rant! So there will not be any products hyped here today and no links for me to add in the description. If anyone is offended by this in any way, get over it!

Some of this video is a bit tongue-in-cheek humor, but for the most part I am dead serious.

When it comes to the looks of a phone, I simply do not care as I will point out in the video.

I’ll also point out why certain things simply are wrong to say. I am also going to tell you the very best phone that you can buy right now.

So let us get right to the video. Please give it a thumbs up and visit the channel to subscribe and share the video!

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!
