Epad X Dual Screen Tablet Has an E Ink Screen and Color Screen

By James A.

Dual screen smartphones were vaguely popular (less now with YotaPhone bankrupt), but dual screen tablets haven’t quite been tried. There’s a color screen in the mix on one side and an E Ink screen on the other side. It’s called Eewrite Epad X and it’s shown below.

The product runs Android and packs a 9.7 inch IPS LCD display with a 2408 x 1536 pixel resolution as the main screen and an E Ink 1200 x 825 pixel screen on the other side. Eewrite wants to write a crowdfunding campaign for the tablet soon and the folks of Notebook Italia managed to get cozy with the device in the video below, in an early prototype.

Eewrite representatives claim that the device is still a work in progress, on the hardware and software front. They want to make the tablet thinner, among other purposes. The tablet will feature a button that switches from one screen to the other, much like the Vivo NEX Dual Display. The tablet also supports a Wacom digital pen with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.

It can read eBooks and other documents and lets you take down notes, draw pictures and more. Specs include a MediaTek MT8176 hexa core CPU, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot and a 5000 mAh battery. There’s an USB Type-C port and stereo speakers, plus Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS. I can’t imagine a small price for this device…

Huawei Prepping Two Tablets With 48 Megapixel Sony Camera Sensors

By Radu Iorga

Fresh after finding out that Huawei surpassed Samsung to become the second biggest tablet maker after Apple, we learn that the Chinese firm is working on two new tablets. They’re going to be packing some serious camera firepower, as rumors are talking about a 48 megapixel camera on board.

Huawei is working on two tablets, with Kirin 980 CPUs inside. One of them will have an 8.4 inch screen with a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution and the other will be a 10.7 incher with the same resolution. These are said to be the the Huawei MediaPad M6 tablets, that will pack a 4200 mAh and 7500 mAh battery respectively. The source, Mishaal Rahman claims that the info was mined from source and there’s no guarantee everything has been interpreted correctly.

The camera configs aren’t known, just the sensors. We may even end up with dual cameras, or maybe a crazy triple camera tablet. The MediaPad M5 10 (Pro) had a Kirin 960 CPU, a 7500 mAh battery and a 10.8 inch Quad HD screen, so it makes sense to find the above mentioned specs on the new 10 incher. Also, just like the predecessor we should also get stylus support and a pretty solid selfie camera. A fingerprint scanner should also make the cut, plus an USB Type-C port.

EMUI should also get bumped up on these devices. I’d predict a launch at IFA 2019, if not earlier.

Innosaem Concept Smartphone is a Foldable and Stretchable Device, That Turns Into a Tablet

By Radu Iorga

We’ve all heard about foldable phones and seen quite a few, either in patents or renders, but today we came across a concept that involves an unusual format. It’s called Innosaem and comes from the Korean company under the same name.

This time we’re dealing with a device that’s able to turn from phone to tablet and laptop even. The video concept is kind of barebones and simple and the presentation is amateur-ish, at the level of a basic PowerPoint, but let’s pretend it’s not. Innosaem claims that it already has a patent for this type of device and things are in motion.

The idea is to get a larger screen when unfolded and make it even larger by pulling on the sides and stretching out the device. The foldable-stretchable mechanism is expected to increase the size of the machine quite a bit. When folded, it all works out in a 5 inch smartphone format. When unfolded, the device becomes a 6.5 incher and when stretched it even reaches 8.9 inches.

We also see a “laptop” format for the concept, with one screen used as the keyboard and the other as the real display. An unusual aspect here is that the Innosaem phone is both in folding and out folding, which is something that Samsung and Huawei haven’t yet figured out. Before totally dismissing this project, remember that Royole FlexPai came out of nowhere and was amazing back in November 2018.

Huawei Beats Samsung on Tablet Market, Now Second Placed After Apple

By Radu Iorga

The tablet market has registered a shift in power over the last quarter, as Huawei replaced Samsung as the second most prolific tablet maker. Apple remains top dog, but Huawei is closing in, having already beaten the Cupertino giant in the smartphone wars.

The latest Digitimes Research estimates show that the latest iPad Mini and iPad Air models have boosted the entire tablet market out of its coma. 37.15 million slates have been sold globally between January and March 2019. Apple has the lion’s share of the sales, of course. The iPads sold 25.8% of all tablets in 2018 and early 2019 is said to have boosted the numbers.

Huawei’s MediaPad lineup has also grown quite a bit, even though the global tablet shipments shrunk compared to Q4 2018 by 12.9%. Another year on year decline is expected in Q2 2019. Interestingly, Huawei was placed fourth in the tablet market in Q4 2018 and now it jumps to second. Microsoft also jumped from sixth to fifth place, beating Lenovo.

Amazon was number four, registering shipment decreases in Q1 and expecting a similar turnout for Q2 2019. We’re still waiting on figures for Q1 2019, since all we have are estimates. In the meantime we learn that Qualcomm beat Mediatek as the number 2 supplier of CPUs for tablets in the past 3 months.

“You’re Holding It Wrong” Is Back, Now With Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e Problems

By Radu Iorga

Remember the time when Steve Jobs told the world that they were holding an iPhone wrong, instead of admitting it had signal problems? Now Samsung has a similar case with the Galaxy Tab S5e slate. Let’s find out what’s wrong.

This isn’t a singular case for Samsung, that had problems with the Galaxy Fold recently and its screen, plus the Galaxy S10 5G, which failed to connect to some networks in South Korea. Samsung Galaxy Tab S10e, if held in a certain way makes the WiFi shut down, because of a design flaw. Users have started complaining about the fact that the tablet can’t connect to WiFi properly, on account of the integrated receiver being located in the lower left side of the device.

This means that when you’re holding the device horizontally, with the front camera pointed to the left, your finger could block the WiFi signal, so you won’t be able to connect to the Internet properly. When total disconnection doesn’t happen, there’s still a pretty major signal drop. Since it’s a design flaw, there’s no way to issue a software update to fix it, you just have to hold the tablet in a certain way.

This means you have to hold the slate with the front camera to the right instead of left. There’s no problem with vertical orientation, but who’s holding the tablet like that anyway? Users with problems have demanded a replacement tablet, but that won’t fix the underlying issue. This could be one of the sacrifices associated to making such an ultraslim device.
