Oppo R17, Use Gorilla Glass 6 and In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor

TECHNOLOGY-PORTFOLIO.NET - In the past few days, the leak around the Oppo F9 circulated a lot on the internet. However, Oppo actually gave another surprise to Oppo Fans.

The official Oppo website released the new successor to the Oppo R15 namely the Oppo R17.

The design is completely different from its predecessor, the most obvious is the face of the device. Bangs or notches that were once perched on top of the R15 display are now trimmed to pieces in the middle.

The "Notch" is similar to the one that Oppo F9 carries out that will soon be introduced. The Oppo R17 also features an in-display fingerprint or a fingerprint scanner on the screen.

The screen surface is also coated with Gorilla Glass 6, which will protect the smartphone that falls from a height of one meter in 15 consecutive times.

At the top there is still a very thin frame as a speaker holder. The Oppo R17's screen span reaches 6.4 inches AMOLED paneled and full HD Plus resolution. The aspect ratio is called to reach 91.5 percent.

At the bottom of the screen is a fingerprint scanner on the screen. The sensor measures 4 square millimeters and has a 3P Micro Lens for reading fingerprints optically.

The front camera that is based on the notch has a 25 megapixel resolution.

The Oppo R17 is powered by Snapdragon 670, a new 10nm process technology chip that has eight Kryo 360 cores, Adreno 615 graphics and 1.7 GHz efficiency. This smartphone will run with the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system (OS) coated with the Color OS 5.2 interface.

Android 9 Named Pie and It's Nine New Features

Android 9 Named Pie and It's Nine New Features

Android 9 Named Pie and It's Nine New Features

TECHNOLOGY-PORTFOLIO.NET - This week, Google finally announced the official nickname for the latest Android P operating system. The letter "P" in its name turns out to be short for "Pie".

The ninth version of the Android operating system is available through updates over-the-air for Google's Pixel series devices.

Other manufacturers participating in the Android P beta program are scheduled to follow suit soon, including Sony, Xiaomi, Global HMD (Nokia), Oppo, Vido, OnePlus, and Essential.

What new features can users find on Android Pie? Consider nine of them below.

1.Smart reply from notification

Google implements a rounded appearance in the Android Pie graphical interface, including in the quick setting and tray notifications.

The visual theme of the design material on Android Pie does add white space and rounded corners. The setting display now also displays a more colorful icon.

For notifications, Android Pie is able to display content such as images from an instant messaging application, following the option to immediately reply to a conversation.

2.Dark mode
In certain circumstances, the dark-colored interface is more comfortable than bright white as usual.

In the previous Android Oreo, Google had time to provide the dark mode option which had to be activated by choosing wallpaper, but the feature was then pulled.

Dark mode is now back on Android Pie. The way to activate it is also easy, that is, simply open the Display option in the Settings menu, then Device theme, then choose between three options, namely automatic (wallpaper based), bright, or dark.

3. Simulation of "bangs"
More and more Android smartphones have a "notch" alias bangs at the top as the front camera and earpiece, while the screen continues to be widened and leaves only a thin frame on the edge of the device.

To accommodate this emerging trend, Android Pie provides a notch simulation facility for developers, so they can see what the application looks like on a smartphone.

The trick is to activate the Developer Mode, then activate the option "Simulate a display with a cutout" in the Drawing section.

4. Editing screenshot
Android Pie still supports how to take screenshots by holding the power and volume down buttons together.

In addition, there is a new feature for screenshot editing. As soon as the screenshot is taken, Android Pie will display the "Edit" button in the screenshot preview.

Editing options include crop, highlight, and drawing. This shortens the steps needed if the user wants to edit the screenshot before sharing it with others.


5. Digital wellbeing
This feature is not implemented by default on Android Pie, but can be obtained through participation in the beta program, provided the user has a Pixel series device.

Digital wellbeing aims to reduce cellphone usage by users, through a special dashboard that displays supporting features.

There is an "app timer" that limits the running time of the application, do not disturb, and "wind down" which automatically activates Night Light and changes the color of the screen to grayscale to remind the user to sleep immediately, if they are still busy looking at the cellphone screen on the bed.

6. Lockdown
There is one new security feature for extra security that is applied on Android Pie, the Lockdown mode that will lock the device, then deactivate the fingerprint scanner and voice unlock, and not display notifications on the lock screen.

The device asks for a default key such as PIN or pattern.

The way to activate it is to open the Security and Location option in the Settings menu, then Lock Screen Preference, and activate Show lockdown.

The option to perform a Lockdown will then be displayed when the user presses the power button.

7. Gesture based navigation

Bored with three default navigation buttons in the style of Android? Google provides an alternative to Android Pie, namely the swiping gesture-based navigation.

Swipe right to run the "back" function, go left to change the open application, up to see the "recent apps" or app drawer.

The small ellipse button (on screen button) in the middle of the screen functions like a physical home button to bring the user back to the home screen.

8. Lock rotation
Some Android users may often be forced to flip through the device because the sudden display of the screen changes from portrait or vice versa, when the device changes orientation.

Different from the previous Android version which only provides "on" and "off" options for automatic rotation, Android Pie can lock the display in a certain orientation.

A special button on the top corner of the screen is used to activate this rotation key.

9. Adaptive battery
The adaptive battery feature uses artificial intelligence (AI) to track user usage patterns, including at any time.

Applications that are often used will get resource and battery priority to run in the background. The goal is none other than to increase power efficiency and save battery life.

To facilitate the user in monitoring, the remaining battery power indicator will be displayed at the bottom of the ambient display (always on display), as previously done by some Android manufacturers on the device.

TECHNOLOGY-PORTFOLIO.NET - Nokia has presented its newest product called Nokia One. It is true that this product is not a cellphone that has wow specifications, considering its affordable price, which is under 100 USD.

Armed with an Android edition of Go Oreo that is efficient so that it can run applications smoothly on devices with minimal specifications, such as 1GB RAM. The manufacturer's HMD also supplies this Nokia One with 1GB of RAM because the included applications are designed to use less storage and data, so they can do more and accommodate more photos and applications on the cellphone.

Android 8.1. Oreo (Go edition) does not include unnecessary applications or hidden processes that can be felt to drain the battery and cellphone memory for cpu efficiency, memory and battery life. The Nokia One battery can be removed and has a capacity of 2150 mAh. This phone also supports 4G and dual SIM card connections.

The rear camera on the Nokia One has a 5MP sensor with an LED flash while the 2MP front camera is sufficient for photographic needs as needed.

The CPU used is MT6737M Quad Core with a speed of 1.1 GHz while the internal storage of 8 GB is quite minimal compared to most mobile phones currently in circulation but don't worry because it has a microSD slot that supports up to 128 GB capacity.

The screen is also classified as mini for now because it measures only 4.5 inches with FWVGA resolution. The color that can be chosen is Warm Red, Dark Blue.

How to Hide "Online" Status on Instagram

TECHNOLOGY-PORTFOLIO.NET - Instagram some time ago has released an online marker feature, just like what can be found on Facebook Messenger. The sign in the form of a green dot appears on the right side of the user's profile photo in the direct message option.

This sign is actually released to increase interaction between users on Instagram. Unfortunately this sign is often considered to interfere with the privacy of users who do not want to be known that he is on the move on Instagram.

So is there a way to hide the online status?

Of course there is and the method is very easy. You can turn off the sign via the settings menu.

You must enter your Instagram profile, then tap the three-point mark in the top right corner. This button will take you to the settings menu.

On the menu scroll the options to the bottom and you will see the "Privacy and security" submenu. In this sub menu there will be a choice of "Activity Status".

In this option there will be a button that functions to turn on or turn off the online marker feature. If it is turned off, then the time information when the last time the user is online will also off.

How to Hide "Online" Status on Instagram

But keep in mind, if you turn off this feature it means you also won't be able to see the online status of the people you follow. Even so, if you feel this online sign is disturbing privacy, there is nothing wrong if it's turned off.
