The smartphone runs on Android 9.0 Pie with Vivo’s Funtouch OS 9 on top. The X27, is pretty much the same device however it comes in a 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant which is powered by a Snapdragon 675 SoC. Also the pop-up selfie camera on the X27 is a 16-megapixel sensor and the battery is rated at 3,700mAh. As of now, the devices are only announced for the Chinese market. The launch of the X27 Pro hints at the fact that Vivo might be looking at launching the variant as an updated version of the V15 Pro in India.

How VR is Transforming the Way We Train Associates

If you’ve ever tried on a virtual reality (VR) headset, you’re familiar with its ability to recreate real-life experiences. Even a rollercoaster ride simulation has the potential to make your stomach drop.

VR tech has taken everything from journalism to pro football quarterback training to the next level. And last year, Walmart introduced VR to the world of employee training and development by using the technology to upgrade training at Walmart Academies nationwide. With the huge success of that program, the company is now providing Oculus VR headsets to all stores in the U.S. to bring the same level of training to more than 1 million Walmart associates.

Oculus Go VR Headset
“The great thing about VR is its ability to make learning experiential,” said Andy Trainor, Walmart’s senior director of Walmart U.S. Academies. “When you watch a module through the headset, your brain feels like you actually experienced a situation. We’ve also seen that VR training boosts confidence and retention while improving test scores 10 to 15 percent – even those associates who simply watched others experience the training saw the same retention boosts.”

Starting next month, VR training will begin its launch across the country, sending four headsets to every Walmart supercenter and two units to every Neighborhood Market and discount store. With more than 17,000 Oculus Go headsets in stores by the end of the year, every associate – including those on the floor who interact with customers the most – will have access to the same training that their managers and department managers do at the Academies.

Associate Sandra puts on an Oculus VR Headset
Brock McKeel, senior director of digital operations, worked with Andy to bring VR training to associates, and said there are already more than 45 activity-based modules using industry-leading software provided by STRIVR. STRIVR’s platform delivers realistic, repeatable and scalable training content, which helps associates learn information more quickly and retain it better.

“We are entering a new era of learning, and Walmart continues to lead the way,” said Derek Belch, CEO of STRIVR, which worked with Walmart on its initial launch of VR in Academies last year. “The power of VR is real, and when offered as a cornerstone of learning and development, it can truly transform the way an organization trains its people.”

Walmart plans to use VR to train associates in three main areas: new technology, soft skills like empathy and customer service, and compliance.

VR training is particularly helpful for learning new tech. In a pilot test this summer, 10 stores used VR for training on new Pickup Tower units in their stores. VR is allowing associates to be trained before the towers are even installed – no teachers required. This will be key as Walmart continues to roll out new tech to stores.

Adrian Carthen used the VR training to learn about the Pickup Tower when it came to her store in Stockbridge, Ga., this summer. She said it “went beyond hands-on.”

“I’m a gamer, so I was excited to use it,” she said. “It felt like you were actually loading the tower. And I could train any time that I wanted and it was done in just a few minutes.”

We have a lot of people who are cross-trained to use the tower now and they can help customers, which is amazing.

Instilling confidence is exactly what makes VR so effective as a training tool. Because the effect of VR training is like an experience in real life, associates have the freedom to make mistakes and learn by “doing,” all while in a safe environment.

“Walmart was one of the first companies to benefit from VR’s ability to enrich employee education, and its applications will only grow from here,” said Andy Mathis, Oculus’ head of business partnerships. “What makes it so compelling is that costly, difficult, or otherwise-impossible scenarios and simulations become not only possible, but immediately within reach.”

But beyond the investment in innovation and associate training, VR technology helps teach skills that enrich the careers of associates across the U.S.

“Yes, we’re focused on helping people do their jobs better every day. But the training we’ve designed is also hopefully training for life,” McKeel said. “That person walks out of their store with new skills and more confidence than they had before – that’s the passion behind this project.”

Apple Has Confirmed That it is Shipping Only Qualcomm Powered iPhones to German Stores

Apple Inc said Thursday that it will resume selling older iPhone models in its stores in Germany, where they were banned last year due to a patent infringement ruling. The iPhones will be sold in Germany only with chips from Qualcomm Inc, instead of a mix of chips from Qualcomm and Intel Corp. Qualcomm is in a global legal battle against Cupertino-based Apple over patent licensing, and the German case was part of the chip supplier’s efforts to rack up smaller wins ahead of a major lawsuit with Apple that goes to trial in April in San Diego. Qualcomm last year also won a ban on sales of some iPhones in China.

Apple said it had “no choice” but to stop using some chips from Intel Corp in iPhones headed to Germany in order to comply with the patent infringement ruling. Qualcomm, the world’s biggest supplier of mobile chips, sued Apple in Germany alleging that some older iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models violated Qualcomm patents around so-called envelope tracking, a feature that helps mobile phones save battery power while sending and receiving wireless signals. The alleged patent violation stemmed not from Intel chips but yet another Apple supplier – Qorvo Inc – whose chip was only present in older phones with Intel modems.

The court sided with Qualcomm and banned sales of some iPhone models that used Intel modem chips, leading Apple to pull the devices from its 15 retail stories in Germany and its online store in the country. The ban was a victory in Qualcomm’s legal conflict with Apple. The iPhone maker has alleged that Qualcomm engaged in illegal patent licensing practices to protect a monopoly on so-called modem chips, which connect mobile phones to wireless data networks. Qualcomm has in turn alleged that Apple has infringed its patents. A major case between the two goes to trial in the United States in April. Apple began phasing in Intel’s modem chips in 2016 after years of using chips exclusively from Qualcomm. In last year’s iPhone models, Apple dropped Qualcomm’s chips completely in favor of Intel’s. But Qualcomm has continued to supply Apple with chips for older models, and Apple on Thursday said it would use only those for German iPhone 7 and 8 models. “Qualcomm is attempting to use injunctions against our products to try to get Apple to succumb to their extortionist demands,” Apple said in a statement to Reuters. Qualcomm and Qorvo did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Newer iPhones with Intel chips remain on sale in Germany. “Intel’s modem products are not involved in this lawsuit and are not subject to this or any other injunction,” Steven Rodgers, Intel’s general counsel, said in a statement.

First Phone With 12GB RAM And Snapdragon 855 Processor Launched

As smartphone manufacturers work towards notchless, bezel-less displays, sliding designs are making a comeback. In October, Xiaomi and Honor both released devices with rear slide-up mechanisms that allow components like the camera and top speaker to be placed somewhere besides the screen. Last month, Lenovo also joined the movement with the launch of the Z5 Pro. This week, however, the company outdid themselves with the announcement of the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT.

This new slider moves in the same way as the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and Honor Magic 2: the back half of the phone slides up just enough to expose the front camera and speaker. Though the design closely resembles that of the Z5 Pro, the GT edition shown off on Tuesday really pumps up the specs.

The newest model retains the same size display and camera specs as its predecessor, but the RAM is doubled to 12GB, the storage is multiplied to 512GB, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 is replaced with the 855. Despite this device coming with industry-leading features, there’s no 5G support even though the mobile communications standard begins shifting at the start of the new year. Aesthetically, the only difference between the two models is that the Z5 Pro GT edition has bright red accents that frame the screen and both rear cameras. Instead of the smooth finish that the Z5 Pro dons, the GT has a glossy carbon fiber pattern under the exterior glass. Putting the front camera and speaker on a mechanism that slides out from behind the display is great for those who want that full-screen experience, but it also forces owners to slide the screen down to take a phone call. Maybe it’s worth it, maybe it’s not.

The Lenovo Z5 Pro starts at 2,698 yuan (about $390) and is already available to the Chinese market, while the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT starts at 4,398 yuan (about $640) and launches January 24 with pre-orders beginning on January 15.

5G: A Revolution Not Without Risks

The recent diplomatic dust-up over Chinese telecoms company Huawei, one of the leaders in developing equipment for fifth-generation mobile networks, has demonstrated that this technology which promises to enable an internet of things and self-driving vehicles also poses risks. What is 5G, what will it be able to do, and what are the risks? What is 5G?

5G stands for the fifth generation of mobile network technology, which should begin to be rolled out in 2020 in Asia and the United States. Each generation has offered improvements in data transmission speed and capacity, and with 5G the networks are really set to make the transition from telephony to other objects.

What will it be able to do? The much vaunted internet of things has so far been hobbled by the limitations of mobile networks, both in terms of transmission speeds of handsets and the fact the backbone of networks hadn’t been expanded sufficiently in many cases to handle huge volumes of data. With 5G, transmission speeds should accelerate sufficiently to allow for self-driving cars to take to the roads or for doctors to conduct operations remotely. It will also cut the cord on augmented and virtual reality. The ability to connect more sensors will help make many services “intelligent”, such as helping manage traffic flow and telling the sanitation department when garbage bins need to be emptied. Industry is in particular looking forward to 5G to reinvent manufacturing and allow it to monitor all sorts of processes. Why does 5G pose security risks?
The first reason is that more data and more types of data will be travelling across 5G networks. Much of the data transmitted by sensors could be sensitive, such as information about manufacturing processes that business rivals would be interested in acquiring. Or the data from our homes that could be gleaned to determine all sorts of things about us. The treasure chest of data for hackers is getting much, much bigger.

A second reason is that an increased reliance on the mobile network means its disruption would have even more serious consequences, both in terms of safety and economic activity. A failure during a remotely guided operation could lead to the death of a patient or a crash of a self-driving car. A longer outage could disrupt an economy. This poses national security risks. While the diplomatic spat over the arrest of Huawei’s chief financial officer was based on accusations the firm violated US sanctions on Iran, the United States has longstanding concerns about Chinese telecommunications equipment being a Trojan horse for Beijing’s intelligence and military.

Huawei is a major manufacturer of equipment used to build 5G networks, and the US defence establishment fears it could enable it to disrupt American military communications or otherwise wage asymmetrical warfare in a confrontation. The United States has essentially barred use of Huawei equipment in domestic networks, as have Australia and New Zealand, with other countries considering following suit.

Deliverance or disappointment?
The promises are always hyped, but the delivery is often a disappointment. Early buyers of 4G smartphones were often let down: their handsets could handle nippy speeds but the backbone of networks were often not yet bulked up to handle the higher data flow. Operators have now built up the capacity of their backbone networks, but if 5G is to keep its promise the number of base stations needed is enormous. Otherwise, users will be forced back onto slower networks.

Meanwhile operators are having to invest billions to roll out 5G, which is an issue because competition in many countries has hemmed in prices companies can charge consumers. While most analysts believe operators will in the end be able to finance building the new networks, they may not initially be dense enough to handle some of the most anticipated applications.

Building a dense network of base stations along highways to handle self-driving vehicles will be a costly endeavour, for example, and operators may find themselves seeking partners from users of new services.

Xiaomi Mi 9 With Snapdragon 855, Triple-Cameras, And Upto 12GB RAM Announced

Ahead of Samsung’s Galaxy S10 launch, Xiaomi has announced its new flagship, the Mi 9. Most of the features of the mobile phone were already out, including the triple camera at the back with a 48-megapixel sensor and the powerful Snapdragon 855 processor.

Announced at a special event in China, the new Mi 9 comes in an interesting curved glass design with gradient finish at the back. There’s a 6.39-inch Samsung-made AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. There is a tiny water-drop notch at the top and a slight chin at the bottom, so no it isn’t completely bezel-less and the company claims a 90.7-percent screen-to-body ratio.

As mentioned above, the handset runs on a Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB and 8GB RAM options. During the event, Xiaomi founder Lei Jun has announced a Game Turbo feature which is said to boost the phone’s performance for an improved gaming experience. He went on to say that this feature helps in maintaining a higher framerate when compared to the likes of Huawei’s Kirin 980 equipped device. The triple camera setup at the back includes a 48-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.75 aperture and laser autofocus, a 12-megapixel telephoto lens and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide angle lens with a 117-degree view as well as 4cm macro photography capability. There are also some AI features, distortion correction, a bunch of face filters and more. There’s also a “Moon Mode” which does exactly as it sounds. It is claimed to take sharp and detailed photos of the moon. Sure, that’s exactly what consumers do when they buy a phone with a high-end camera. The company went on to actually compare shots taken from an iPhone XS and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro with the Mi 9. Hopefully, this feature also works for other bright objects that are far away instead of just working on the moon. Other features include an in-display fingerprint sensor, NFC, infrared remote to control TVs and air conditioners and improved audio courtesy a large driver and a 0.9cc sounding chamber. There’s a 3,300mAh battery which can fully charge within 60 minutes as the phone supports 27W fast charging. There is also 20W wireless charging support which is evidently faster than Samsung and Huawei.

To experience that, Xiaomi also introduced a $15 (Rs 1,100 approx) wireless charger, a 10,000 mAh power bank worth $22 (Rs 1,600 approx) and an in-car wireless charging cradle with automatic grip for $25 (Rs 1,800 approx). All of these accessories will be sold separately.

Last, but not the least, the Mi 9 also gets a transparent limited edition just like last year’s Mi 8. The limited edition of the Mi 9 was announced in association with newly released sci-fi movie Alita: Battle Angel. The company has improved the overall camera here adding an extra lens and a faster f/1.47 aperture. It also comes with a whopping 12GB of RAM so you don’t have to slow down on multitasking.

The Mi 9 with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is priced at 2,999 (Rs 32,000 approx) yuan while, the 8GB version will cost 3,299 yuan (Rs 35,000 approx) . The special transparent edition with 12GB RAM and 256GB of storage will cost 3,999 yuan (Rs 43,000 approx) .

Vivo V15 Pro

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo has launched its new device Vivo V15 Pro in India today for Rs 28,990. The all-new Vivo V15 pro will be available from 20 February in India. The device sports a pop-up front camera, which the company first introduced in the iconic Vivo Nex smartphone in early 2018.

The Vivo V15 Pro sports a 6.39-inch full-HD+ Super AMOLED Ultra FullView Display and include a Snapdragon 675 SoC, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The phone is also likely to have a 3,700mAh battery along with a “Dual Engine” fast charging technology. The device also lacks physical fingerprint sensor, so V15 Pro could have a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display screen itself.

In terms of optics, the back of the Vivo V15 Pro houses a triple-camera setup with three lenses arranged in a vertical fashion. This line-up is likely to include a 48MP quad pixel primary sensor, with effective capabilities of a 12MP sensor. One 8MP sensor and another 5MP sensor are also likely to be in the mix. On the front, Vivo V15 Pro will have a 32-megapixel selfie camera that is going to pop-out whenever required.

This one comes with a regular capacitive fingerprint sensor unlike the in-display fingerprint sensor seen on the other two S10 smartphones. It also comes with a smaller 3,100mAh battery while the rest of the features remain the same. Pricing for the Galaxy S10e starts at $749.99 which is about Rs 53,500.

The Galaxy S10 5G, which is due later this year will be coming with the same processing power but will get a larger 6.7-inch display, a bigger 4,500mAh battery and an extra ToF (Time of Flight) camera at the back.

Huawei Mate X Folding 5G Smartphone

Huawei Technologies unveiled a $2,600 folding smartphone on Sunday which it said was primed for next-generation 5G mobile connections, even as the United States campaigns to bar the Chinese company from such networks over security concerns. Huawei, the world’s second-largest smartphone vendor after Samsung, said it had taken the lead on developing phones for 5G – which promise super fast internet speeds for consumers and businesses – because it was also involved in developing the networks.

“This phone is not only for today for 5G but also for future 5G. On all the benchmarks you can see the performance, the speed is the fastest for 5G in the world,” said Richard Yu, head of Huawei’s consumer business group. Speaking ahead of the mobile industry’s biggest global event, which kicks of on Monday in Barcelona, Yu said the Huawei Mate X will have two back-to-back screens which unfold to become an eight-inch tablet display.

Yu said the Mate X would be able to download a 1 gigabyte movie in three seconds but also be priced at 2,299 euros ($2,607) when it goes on sale later this year, setting a new upper limit for consumer smartphones. Samsung Electronics Co Ltd last week unveiled its own folding smartphone, priced at nearly $2,000, in a bid to top the technology of Apple Inc and Chinese rivals and reignite consumer interest amid slumping sales. Huawei, which is also the world’s biggest producer of telecoms equipment, is under intense scrutiny in the West over U.S.-led allegations of enabling Chinese state espionage, accusations which the company denies. Huawei’s chairman said on Sunday recent comments by U.S. President Donald Trump that the U.S. needed to get ahead in mobile communications through competition rather than seeking to block technology was “clear and correct”.
