    Anandtech: ChargeTech 124,800 mAh Battery Pack: Charge Your iPhone 47 Times

    One of the fundamental elements of a backpack when going on a journey is to take a battery pack in case your smartphone doesn't make it through the day. These devices typically hold from 5000 to 20000 mAh and can charge a device a few times. For example, my 11300 mAh battery is rated at 42.7 Watt hours, and often the legal limit on aircraft is 100 Watt hours. Now imagine we scale that into something the size of a portable amplifier, that can charge laptops as well. These bigger battery devices has been around a while, varying in size and shape, but ChargeTech believes it has a nice sweet spot.

    The next generation of Intel’s server processor line is the Cascade Lake Xeon Scalable family. Intel has been promoting it as the next generation over several events through 2018, and we are patiently awaiting its launch sometime in 2019. It would appear that one of Intel’s partners has already jumped the gun, publishing a partial list of parts Intel will be releasing in relation to one of its systems. This part list goes all the way from six-core Xeon Bronze all the way up to 28-core Xeon Platinum.

    Anandtech: Huawei Launches the Mate X: Folding in a New Direction

    Today at Huawei’s press conference at MWC Barcelona, Huawei has something special to share with us. It’s only been a couple of days since Samsung announced its own foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold – generating a lot of talk and hype around the new form-factor. Huawei of course didn’t stand still and has long been an innovator themselves, introducing a lot of new first-exclusive features over the last year or two. This year, Huawei is ready to steal Samsung’s thunder with the follow-up announcement of the new Mate X – the company’s own take on a foldable smartphone.

    Anandtech: TCL Low Cost Foldable Display for Everyone: Patented DragonHinge

    Out of the top smartphone manufacturers, Samsung has clearly beat its competitors to the punch with its foldable smartphone, but it certainly will not be the only company to offer such a product. TCL, the company behind such brands as Alcatel and BlackBerry, is working on its own foldable display designed for more mainstream-priced handsets. Along with the display, it has patented its 'DragonHinge' design to deal with the fold in a device. The company states that these foldable handsets promise to be considerably more affordable than the first ones to market.

    Anandtech: TCL Launches the Alcatel 1S: a 5.5-inch IPS Smartphone for $109 / €109

    Most of the time, in fact almost all the time, we tend to discuss about the most expensive phones on the market. If it isn’t $600, then it is $800, or $1099, or even $1980, as with the latest announcements. However most of the volume sales of smartphones occurs at the lower end of the scale, either in the mid-range or in the budget line. Alcatel launched its sub-$100 1-series devices last year, and at Mobile Congress today it is blowing that price bracket wide open, with a large 5.5-inch IPS display.

    Anandtech: Microsoft at MWC 2019: HoloLens 2 and Azure Kinect

    Today in Barcelona, Microsoft has unveiled some very interesting products, with Azure Kinect and HoloLens 2. Microsoft is trying to carve out a niche in the IoT world with Azure Kinect, leveraging their premium tools and security models for IoT with first-party hardware, and the updated HoloLens 2 expands the use-cases and technical specifications, while updating usability and comfort.
    HoloLens 2

    It was almost four years ago that we got our first hands-on with HoloLens and while the first generation headset did have some issues with field-of-view, you could still instantly see the use-cases for HoloLens. In the next four years, Microsoft continued to fill out the software stack for HoloLens, which runs on Windows 10, providing new tools for developers, and new use-cases for clients.
    HoloLens, especially in the first generation, was never targeted at end-users, but rather businesses where the ability to quickly and dynamically model in 3D, such as architecture, medicine, and NASA, as examples.
    HoloLens 2 builds on the successes of the first model, while updating it with much newer hardware, and addresses some of the issues that are typical of a first-generation device in a totally new field.
    During the keynote, Microsoft stated that HoloLens is the only holographic device which can display 47 pixels per degree of field of view. This allows users to read 8-point fonts on webpages, which was the example used during the keynote. That means that for each degree of vertical and horizontal view, there are 2209 pixels available from the MEMS display. HoloLens 2 addresses the biggest issue with the original model by keeping this same resolution, but over doubling the field of view, meaning the new model is just as sharp, but will be much more immersive.
    The HoloLens team has also made the new model much more comfortable to wear for extended periods. They approached this in multiple ways. They 3D scanned thousands of people’s heads, across ages, genders, and ethnicities, to design the new HoloLens 2 to fit more people comfortably. They’ve also moved the center of gravity of the device rearward, to avoid the front of the headset pulling down and fatiguing the user. In addition, the new model offers Iris scanning Windows Hello authentication, and accurate eye-tracking.
    Finally, Microsoft has revamped the interaction model for HoloLens. One of the biggest issues with a new computing model such as this is that people going in have no experience on how to use the device. This limits some of the use cases. The new instinctual model has very accurate models of the user’s hand to enable accurate hand tracking, allowing the user to interact with holograms in ways that were never possible before. Buttons, instead of being an abstract gesture, can now be directly manipulated by pressing them. The demo showed one of the HoloLens developers on-stage playing a virtual piano, which is awfully impressive.
    The use-cases for HoloLens 2 are still business focused, and Microsoft is announcing a new software suite called Dynamics 365 Guides for HoloLens 2, which allows companies to document processes and procedures virtually, allowing new workers to use HoloLens 2 mixed-reality to have step-by-step procedures on new tasks, allowing better and faster knowledge transfer among workers. This is of course just one use-case, but it doesn’t take much of an imagination to see how powerful that can be.
    Microsoft has never touted the hardware specifications of HoloLens, and they don’t appear to be doing this for the new model either. The original was based on Intel’s Atom x-series processor, which ironically was cancelled by Intel shortly after the original model launched. Some leaks prior to this launch are pointing at the new one being powered by Snapdragon 850, which makes a lot of sense for the performance and battery life needs of a device like this. We’ll try to confirm this. Looks like it is indeed a Snapdragon 850 based device coupled with a second generation version of Microsoft's custom Holgraphics Processing Unit.
    HoloLens 2 is priced at $3500 USD, and will be available later this year.
    Azure Kinect

    The other product announced today was Azure Kinect, which is a developer kit allowing IoT based devices to use computer vision and speech models based on their Azure Sphere ecosystem announced in August 2018.
    Azure Kinect will offer both wide-view and narrow-view cameras, as well as the ability to chain multiple cameras together to give a panoramic view. As a developer tool, Microsoft of courses offers SDKs and documentation to provide quick and easy starting points, but as for use cases, there are going to be many. IoT continues to be a driving force behind compute today, and although Microsoft has offered some IoT support with Windows 10 and Azure Sphere, it makes a lot of sense for them to get first-party hardware out as well to ensure that their platforms are utilized.
    Azure Kinect is available for pre-order today, for $399.

    Anandtech: Qualcomm Launches the QCA6390 Chipset: 1.8 Gbps Wi-Fi 6 Ready with BlueToo

    With the upcoming ratification of the Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) standard expected in August, a number of companies are gearing up with Wi-Fi 6 ‘ready’ routers and end-points to get the jump on the market. The idea is that the standard won’t change much between now and full ratification, and most companies developing chipsets expect to sail through without issues – the only difference between the companies will be on the ‘optional’ portions of the specifciations. With that, as we saw at Qualcomm’s Tech Day at the end of 2018, the company will be pushing its latest Wi-Fi 6 solutions onto the market. Today is the launch of one of the chipsets, the QCA6390, which also incorporates BlueTooth 5.1.
