The successor to the Apple XR will receive a battery of increased capacity
The Chinese company ATL (Ameperx Technology Limited) began mass production of batteries for the smartphone iPhone XR (2019), which will be presented in September along with two flagships. New batteries will receive a capacity of 3110 mAh against 2942 mAh from the original iPhone XR. It is noteworthy that he battery consists of a single cell.
The advantage of an L-shaped battery is resistance to power surges, but an I-shaped battery is safer and more suitable for mass production, some market experts say. Thus, Apple has focused not only on optimizing its OS to increase battery life, but also continues to increase its overall capacity, as manufacturers of Android devices.
The network talked about the imminent start of sales of cryptocurrency Telegram
In the spring of this year, information appeared in the media about testing the blockchain platform Telegram Open Network (TON) and the company's cryptocurrency Gram, which Pavel Durov is developing on the basis of his Telegram messenger. So far, the information has not officially received any confirmation, but the Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Liquid said a day ago that the first round of the open sale of Gram will start on July 10.
The statement said that the Altcoin dealer will be the Korean fund Gram Asia, not Telegram. Gram Asia, according to official press releases, is the largest holder of Gram cryptocurrency in Asia. The volume of tokens offered for sale is not disclosed, as well as the value of the currency. Each buyer will pass identification with the provision of identification documents. The start of sales is scheduled immediately in many countries, including Russia. The terms of the purchase spell out the gradual issuance of Gram after the sale and the ban on the sale of altcoin on the stock exchange before the official launch of TON in October of this year.
Note that Pavel Durov, Telegram and TON do not comment on this news. This means that Liquid and Gram Asia can speculate on the upcoming release and try to earn money by selling still unreleased tokens at an inflated price.
Samsung continues to experiment with flexible screens
Following the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, there may be a boom for bending mobile devices. For example, a new Samsung patent describes a smartphone with a flexible matrix and a special roller device, with which the screen extends upward, increasing the linear dimensions of the display.
When folded, the smartphone will be able to claim the title of a compact mobile device. The date of the announcement and the estimated price of the novelty are unknown.
