Google Rammus Tablet Leaks in GeekBench, New Android Slate Incoming

By Radu Iorga

It would appear that Google is prepping one more tablet, as a model codenamed Rammus has just leaked via the benchmark GeekBench. The leak came up courtesy of blogger Roland Quandt and we have extra details below.

Google already announced the Pixel Slate on October 9th, so it’s strange to see one more device. By the way the scores are rather modest, especially since the multi core one is a few thousands of points less than major smartphones out there. Google Rammus is clearly an Android device, one that runs the old Android 7.1.1 OS and packs 4 GB of RAM. It may be an entry level offering for the general public.

That’s especially since it has an Intel Core m3 processor, which is not exactly premium material. The x86 architecture is a bit odd, so we may be dealing with a laptop in the end. One would think that Google would turn to Snapdragon for suck tasks, but it doesn’t seem to be the case. The CPU is the new Intel Core m3-8100Y, based on 14 nm tech and clocked at 1.1 GHz.

The mainboard used here is dubbed “Shyvana” and the CPU is also known as “Amber Lake”. It remains to be seen what this device ends up as, but for now it seems like it would cost very little.

Apple’s Updated Design for iPad Pro 2018 Is as Confirmed by an Icon Found in iOS 12

By Claudiu Sima

If you have forgotten, we remind you that tomorrow on October 30th, Apple has scheduled a special press event where we will see new iPad and Mac products, and a couple of new accessories (maybe a new Apple pen). The most exciting releases will be the Pro 2018 iPad slates, models that according to rumors will arrive in 11 and 12.9 inch versions and will adopt an upgraded design without a home touch ID button.

The reason for renouncing this authentication element lies behind the reduction in edges around the screen, a design we’ve seen before in several leaks, and which today is as confirmed by an icon extracted from a recent build of iOS 12. Here we clearly see the new narrow-edged design and the Home Circular Button.

We’ll get the Face ID solution however that will work both in Portrait and Landscape, and if the latest rumors are true then we will also get a USB-C port at the base instead of the Lightning one. The tablets will have an Apple A12X processor and we can not exclude seeing 4 or 6 GB RAM on board.

Full details will be revealed tomorrow!

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Leaks in Detailed Shots, Will Come in Black

By Radu Iorga

As you probably know already, Microsoft has a special Surface event scheduled on October 2nd and while the Surface Phone will definitely be a no show, there’s still room for other announcements. One of them may be the one of the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2, which has just leaked.

The device seems to keep the same design basically and also the same ports, but there will be a new black version to replace the Graphite Gold one. Changes will also happen inside, as consumers and experts predict an upgrade to the 8th gen Intel Core processors. We also expect a bit of extra RAM. The Windows 10 October 2018 Update should also come during the same time frame as the new Surface Laptop.

The event happens on October 2nd in New York City, at 4:00 PM ET. One also expects a new Surface Studio, overdue for an upgrade and new Surface Pro models, accessories like the Dial, Pen and Surface Mouse to get bumped up too. Surface Laptop was a very slick and slim machine, so sleek that it’s no wonder the successor’s design is the same. The newcomer will have the same 13.5 inch PixelSense display, aluminum case and keyboard covered with Alcantara fabric.

 

A generous touchpad should be in the mix, while the bulk of the ports should be on the left side. Expect an SD card slot, USB Type-C port maybe (not very likely), a processor up to Intel Core i7 ultra low voltage, 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of SSD storage. The screen will have a 2256 x 1504 pixel resolution and Surface Pen compatibility.

Samsung Teases Foldable Smartphone for Late 2018 Debut

By James A.

After debuting the Galaxy Note 9 and speculating on the Galaxy A midrangers, that are going to get higher end features come 2019, Samsung has set its sights on foldables. The South Korean firm has teased a new foldable smartphone for launch later this year.

Samsung’s prototypes of foldables, OLED machines, Youm units and other attempts date as far as 2012, so they’ve been at it for a long while. CNBC quotes Samsung CEO, DJ Koh, who claimed that the device will be unveiled during the company’s developer conference from November. It’s very likely just a prototype or a special edition, that will just be sold in South Korea.

Previously we’ve heard about only 100k units being made available for starters. Samsung is said to be preparing a bendable phone within the Galaxy Note line. They had experiments before, like the Galaxy Note Edge, or the ill fated Galaxy Round. We have reported about and covered a large number of Samsung patents, that went back and forth between vertical and horizontal formats for the foldables.

Some of them open up like books or newspapers, others are merely glorified clamshells. The core is to make a tablet-sized device fit into the pocket by folding it. Samsung may include a 7 inch screen on the newcomer and maybe inaugurate the oft rumored Galaxy F device.

Expect the product to fold in half like a wallet.

Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) Legit Renders Leaked, Courtesy of @OnLeaks

By Radu Iorga

As usual @OnLeaks and mysmartprice are on the case, when it comes to devices that have yet to be launched. This time it’s the Apple iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) we’re talking about and the sources have managed to somehow score some legit renders via CAD files and even a video was created. We have info about the device’s traits and size below.

Apple already has an event confirmed for September 12th, where they’ll unveil the 3 new iPhones and the 12.9 inch iPad Pro, as well as a smaller iPad Pro, possibly a 10.5 inch or 11 inch one. Sources claim that the designs and some minor details may change, so these renders aren’t 100% guaranteed to be accurate. For starters, the iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) looks quite a bit different compared to the predecessor.

There’s no Home button and the bezels are narrower, even though not as narrow as one would expect. We don’t see any notch here, although we should get some sort of Face ID integration. The body is still all meta and the main camera protrudes a bit and also shocks because it has an LED flash. According to the source, the device lacks a 3.5 mm audio jack, but it has 4 speaker grilles at each corner, in order to deliver kickass acoustics.

 

The dimensions for the product have been revealed: 280.6 x 215 x 5.85 mm, with the waistline going to 7.77 mm if you also include the rear camera bump. The integration of the Smart Connector on the center back of the device is a decision made because the Face ID thing wasn’t working properly in landscape, so a portrait orientation was a bit forced here. When you’re mounting the tablet on the Smart Keyboard cover you will be forced to go with a vertical orientation.

The device is rumored to have an Apple A12X CPU, with 7 nm technology, 4 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of storage. There’s also Face ID as the singular biometrics authentication method. We’ll find out more on September 12th, when Apple unveils this thing.
