Oukitel K10000 Max

Even though we know the Oukitel K10000 Max perfectly, we only saw it live once when the Chinese company was still considering the design, the definitive technical card and of course the availability and price on the market (if you have not done it yet, date Take a look at our hands-on video). Today, this smartphone is no longer the prototype of a few months ago, but a terminal ready for marketing: it is the third battery-phone of 10000 mAh, characterized by a semi-rugged chassis and superior performance.

Toshiba Portégé X30

Toshiba has just unveiled its new ultra portable Portégé X30. A team whose weight barely reaches 1kg and which has been endowed with incredible autonomy, when in full use, from 18h. As well as a system of fast charge that allows to enjoy of 4 h more alone with load it 30 min.

According to IDC, currently, 39% of Spanish workers already develops a significant part of their work in conditions of mobility, an index that will grow to 46% in the next year. In order to meet this demand, the new ultra-portable Toshiba Portégé X30 is 13% lighter (1.05 kg) and 11% thinner (15.9 mm) than the same model from the previous generation. In addition, Toshiba has configured its new equipment so that it can offer an autonomy of 18 hours. Backed by a quick charging system that allows to offer four hours more, after only 30 minutes of loading.

The new Portégé X30 is available in two versions of 8 and 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and incorporates Windows 10 Pro, the most powerful processors of the latest Intel Core U and a PCIe SSD hard drive. It also includes the new Hybrid Air Coolig cooling system developed by Toshiba, which maintains the equipment at the optimum temperature to ensure its performance and prevents dust from entering.

This new range of Toshiba ultralights also features a matte anti-glare screen with Full HD resolution of 13 “. Some models have also used In-Cell touch technology, which offers greater sensitivity, backlit keyboard and keys 2 mm wider than similar models, for greater ergonomics. It also integrates high-end Harman Kardon loudspeakers with DTS Sound software and multiple connectivity options including 2 USB Type C ports compatible with a Thunderbolt 3 dock with up to 14 outputs, two of which can play content on two 4K monitors simultaneously .

Robustness and premium security

As with the rest of the new Toshiba X series launched this year, the Portégé X30 is highly resistant to crashes and knocks thanks to its magnesium alloy chassis, called ToughBody, with a damping and reinforcement system in the form of diaper.

In terms of security, Toshiba has made an important effort to protect sensitive information by incorporating the most advanced features for portable devices. This is the case with its own BIOS, TouchPad with SecurePad ™ fingerprint sensor, IR cameras for facial identification through Intel® Authentication and Windows Hello login

Qualcomm Smart Audio

Let’s make the point: Amazon Echo was the first “smart speaker” on the market, but Google Home soon followed. Apple also appears to be interested in the industry and Microsoft is working with HP and other companies to submit “home assistants” based on their software. But it may just be the beginning, since there is a new player since yesterday.

The new Qualcomm Smart Audio platform is designed to help manufacturers accelerate the development and marketing of smart and networked speakers. This flexible solution offers two options based on the SoC Qualcomm APQ8009 and APQ8017, respectively, with a range of software configurations designed to enable OEMs to produce intelligent and highly optimized speakers for different levels and product categories.

Qualcomm Smart Audio

The platform offers a unique combination of processing capabilities, connectivity options, voice user interfaces (to handle the device in every corner of the room), plus incorporating premium audio technologies (noise and echo cancellation, multi-media support -device) to meet the growing consumer demand for complete and very intuitive smart speakers. This means that it is possible, for example, to synchronize music playback on different loudspeakers in the same room to listen to the same song in “stereo mode” or in multiple rooms to listen to different songs while moving from one room to another.

Qualcomm Smart Audio is not an all-in-one platform, so in addition to the processor, customers can opt for different wireless chips and choose different software solutions, including Linux or Android. It will support both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa voice service (by the end of the year), as well as Google Cast for Audio. And there is support for a wide range of audio codecs, including MP3, AAC, FLAC, WAV and OggVorbis.

As it may not be, Qualcomm has also launched a new set of audio solutions: Qualcomm DDFA is the new generation of audio amplification technology designed for high resolution devices, including wireless speakers, soundbar, network audio amplifiers and headphones. The company also announced major innovations within its broad portfolio of audio system-on-chip (SoC) platforms. Each platform is designed to address new market demands: the first is designed to deliver significantly higher processing performance; The second to support the flexibility of a programmable flash memory at the price of a fixed-mode ROM, and finally, the third solution supports the development of USB-C wired audio devices to ensure superior audio quality. In addition, platforms are designed for specific applications and use cases, including high performance headphones and speakers, headphones and mid-level speakers, as well as wired USB-C headphones.

Qualcomm Smart Audio

Qualcomm is probably best known for producing its smartphone chips, but the San Diego company is expanding rapidly and effectively also in the Internet of Things. The announcement of Qualcomm Smart Audio, in fact, comes just two weeks after the presentation of the reference design and the platform for mesh networking devices.

Doogee Mix Plus

You will probably love the Samsung Galaxy S8 for its “soap” design, for its compact size despite the wide screen and its performance, but something tells us that within a few months the market will be packed with Galaxy S8 killer With similar technical / aesthetic features at a significantly lower price. And the Doogee Mix Plus, which we talked to you a few days ago, will be one of its main competitors as it is the same Chinese company to consider it very similar to Samsung’s flagship with the same bezel-less curved screen.

As far as we know, Doogee Mix Plus will be equipped with a 6.2-inch screen with 18: 9 aspect ratio. And this latest feature will be fashionable this year, as manufacturers need to build larger smartphones in a slimmer chassis to respond to users’ multimedia requests (watch videos and play on larger screens). Today, however, we find out that the Doogee Mix Plus will be released in two versions: the Chinese company shared a few shots of the new family display, comparing the 6.2 “Doogee Mix Plus with its smaller brother with 5.7” display (own Like the Galaxy S8).
We do not have any further information, but it seems confirmed the adoption of a Super AMOLED panel with 2K resolution at least in the larger version. And considering these premises, we expect that the rest of the technical file will be on the same level. Will it have a octa-core processor? A large battery? Will there be two cameras on the back? Hard to say for now, but will certainly cost far less than half the Galaxy S8-series. We will be back soon.

Toshiba Tecra X40

Toshiba Tecra X40 is a 14 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixel), Intel Core (Kaby Lake) processor up to Core i5-7300U, 8GB DDR4-2133 memory and 256GB of SSD PCIe storage in the most expensive SKUs , And 48Wh battery. The Magnesium Alloy ToughBody chassis allows to absorb shocks and the unique honeycomb reinforcement increases resistance, while being very thin (only 16.9 mm thick) and lightweight (just 1.25 kg).

Announced initially in January, with the Toshiba Portégé X30, the new Toshiba Tecra X40 is now on sale in the US market at a starting price of $ 1329. We do not have information yet for availability and price in Europe (including Italy) but will certainly not be cheap either by our side.

Toshiba Tecra X40

The Tecra X40 is dedicated to professional clients, therefore equipped with security features and biometric / facial authentication technologies, such as the new Synaptics Natural ID fingerprint sensor integrated with the new SecurePad touchpad. With IR cameras, you can do facial authentication through Intel Authenticate and Windows Hello, which offers a number of customizable multi-factor authentication options. Used together, these technologies offer a personalized and password-free method for logging in fast and secure. These security levels are supported by the Toshiba-owned BIOS, eliminating the risk of third-party interference that may make the device more vulnerable to unauthorized attacks or unauthorized access. Onboard also Intel vPro technology and TPM 2.0 chips.

To maximize usability, the notebook is designed to be connected to the new Thunderbolt 3 Dock, which provides power and data transfer. The new docking is equipped with a display port and a range of new ports to simplify and make mobile work more flexible, including two USB Type-C, a full-size USB 3.0, an HDMI port, and a microSD Card slot. , A SmartCard reader is also available on the devices. The Toshiba Tecra X40 also comes with a backlit keyboard and Harman Kardon stereo speaker and DTS Sound software. The operating system can only be Windows 10 Pro.

Intel NUC Core i7

Intel’s Next Unit of Computing, better known as NUCs, are mini barebones PCs, ie motherboard and processor supplied containers, whereby the rest of the components can be mounted on their own. Due to the expansion of the Kaby Lake range, new versions of NUCs could also be missing.

Two Intel Core i3 processors (NUC7i3BNK and NUC7i3BNH) are launched, two on Core i5 (NUC7i5BNK and NUC7i5BNH) and one on Core i7 (NUC7i7BNH); The latter will also skirt the Skull Canyon launched in early 2016. Except the processor, the devices share much of the features from the aluminum casings.
Both NUCs with Core i3 and Core i5 will be available in two formats: a “short” (low) that can only accommodate SSD M.2 disks and a tall one that will also provide space for a 2-SATA disk , 5 “. The i7 will only be available in the tall version.

For the rest, there are two SODIMM slots for DDR4 RAM (notebook format), Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth connectivity, 4 USB 3.0 ports, headphone jack, IR receiver, HDMI 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, microSD reader and USB- C with DisplayPort as well as in i5 and i7 models is compatible with Thunderbolt 3, making NUCs even more versatile, perhaps combining them with an external GPU.
Mini PC not for everyone, but definitely interesting just for the degree of freedom offered to the customer. In the US, the new Intel NUCs will arrive in the current month but there is no price news.

HP Omen X Compact Desktop

Almost a year after the announcement of a VR-ready game PC wearing a shoulder-backpack (remember?), HP has finally presented its new design, though it’s a bit different from the original and added some information about Price and launch date. The HP Omen X Compact Desktop – as its name suggests – is essentially a compact desktop PC, but it can also be worn as a backpack when needed. In essence, with a special dock, you will use it as a fixed PC even quite powerful while with dedicated accessories it will become a PC Backpack VR.

HP Omen X Compact Desktop

The HP Omen X Compact Desktop will be available in July for $ 2499 but, if you want to put it on your shoulder, you can buy the optional Omen VR Backpack at $ 599. For the moment its distribution is only planned on the American market and we do not know what the American company’s programs are for Italy.

But how will it work for VR? Just move the desktop PC to the VR backpack, connect a viewer like an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, and then enjoy a virtual reality experience for hours without worrying about stumbling into the cables. Considering that the backpack accommodates the Omen X and lets you carry it around, all the cables will be connected to the computer and will move with it, except for the power supply that will be replaced by a pair of hot-swappable batteries supplied by the backpack. Omen VR backpack, in particular, has four 73Wh batteries, which can be recharged two at a time thanks to a dock, while the other two will be in use, allowing you to continue playing without interruption even if you are running out of power . As reported by HP, with four fully charged batteries, users will be able to play “on paper” for up to two hours, replacing batteries as they unload.
