Poco F1 by Xiaomi global launch

It’s so fast it requires water to cool it down. Xiaomi recently launched the 1st model in its Pocophone series called the F1.
The F1 has specs like a high-end Snapdragon 845 chip & a substantial 4,000mAh battery. It’s got a 6.18-inch 1080p display with an 18.7:9 aspect ratio. There’s also a Qualcomm Adreno 630 GPU, a 20-megapixel selfie cam, & dual rear 12-megapixel, & 5-megapixel cameras.


Samsung tries to re-define mobile computing with Galaxy Note9

With this baby, Samsung is going for broke. Since it’s the most powerful one, we will limit ourselves to talking of its innards.

This 1 is powered by either Samsung’s Exynos 9810 or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 (depending on region). Guess, what. It will be cooled by a custom-designed water cooling system, a 1st.

The Exynos 9810, the 2nd in Samsung’s Exynos 9 series, is an 8-core chip consisting of 4 2.7GHz high-performance cores & 4 slightly slower, power-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.7GHz. It packs quite a performance punch, delivering up to 2 times the raw processing power of the Note8’s Exynos 8895 in terms of single-core performance.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 similarly sports 8 cores — 4 Cortex-A75 performance cores & 4 efficiency cores. It’s 30% faster than the Note8’s Snapdragon 835, overall.

Both the Exynos 9810 & Snapdragon 845 boast modems that deliver download speeds over LTE up to 1.2Gbps (Cat. 18).

An “airbag” that keeps your phone from breaking up

The concept was demonstrated by dropping a phone encased in the jacket, & using a “spider-app.” The thin protective case makes use of sensors that detect when you drop your phone & starts to be in free-fall. This is combined with small metal springs that unfold into dampers in the form of 8 legs, cushioning the fall.
