Technology-Portfolio.net - After announcing a few days ago the stable version of the latest Android 11, Google again announced the Android 11 Go Edition, which is intended for devices with 2GB RAM or less.

This new version of Android for entry level devices brings several performance improvements and the latest privacy features.

Google says that Android 11 Go Edition can increase app launch times by 20 percent compared to Android 10 Go Edition.

Not only that, Gi's Android device will also get the same security and privacy features as those available on regular Android 11 devices. It includes one-time permissions, and auto-reset for apps that haven't been used for a long time.

Android 11 Go Edition also includes support for gesture navigation. This makes sense considering that the Android Go device is getting bigger and bigger.

In addition, there is also a conversations application that allows you to reply to messages directly from the notification.

Google itself has upgraded Android 11 Go support to devices with up to 2GB RAM, from the previous limit of 1.5GB. Additional RAM is said to provide up to 900MB of space, and also an additional 270MB of free memory. This will allow users to run more applications without lag, even for playing games.

Android 11 Go Edition will be available starting next month. It is confirmed that if your device is a Nokia made by HMD Global, the update will be available immediately.

Technology-Portfolio.net - Samsung has just patented a technology that features a configuration of six camera lenses.

Not only that, each camera lens sensor that is believed to be embedded in the Samsung Galaxy S30, can move and tilt separately.

This capability is based on a patent entitled "Apparatus and methods for operating multiple cameras for digital photography".

Based on the rendering design made by LetsGoDigital, there are five wide-angle lenses and one telephoto paired with an LED flash.

But it is not the number of Galaxy S30 lenses that are of concern, but the ability of the mobile camera sensor to move / tilt.

Can Focus in Different Directions



This means that each camera on the Galaxy S30 can look in a different direction from the others, or where the user directs the focus of his smartphone.

Not only that, the camera capability on the Galaxy S30 is also predicted to have a number of improvements in various ways compared to the Galaxy S series that are already on the market today.

Some believe, the lens of the Galaxy S30 camera will have a higher focal length, the ability to take low light photos better, HDR is more enhanced, and the ability to add bokeh effects to panoramic photos.

iPhone 5G Reinforced 5nm Chipset and Qualcomm X55 Modem

Technology-Portfolio.Net - Apple analysis named Dan Ives claims that the tech giant, Apple, will launch a new flagship iPhone in 2020.

Ives also said that every iPhone that glides later, will be supported with 5G connectivity. In fact, the phone is also said to have a 3D sensing system on the back.

Although it's a bit late from its competitors, Apple will present the iPhone 5G by 2020.

According to a report by the Nikkei Asian Review, Apple mobilized suppliers to ship as many as 80 million 5G iPhones by 2020. The report also informed that Apple will launch three flagship iPhone 5G models that will carry 5G modem chips from Qualcomm.

Apparently the chip that allows this will be a combination of Apple's next generation B14 A14 chip, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 modem chip. The latest is that the Apple A14 Bionic is rumored to be the company's first chip built with 5nm technology.

This is interesting because Apple and Qualcomm have just resolved their patent dispute in April.

Moving from 7nm to 5nm will allow the chip to hold more technology on a relatively similar surface, making it more efficient.

This might not be the first 5nm chip, because Huawei is expected to unveil the next Kirin processor which will also be built on 5nm technology.

In 2018, Huawei defeated Qualcomm with the world's first 7nm chip, Kirin 980. Then this year, Kirin 990 was the first chip to embed a 5G modem, among many others.

Unknown a few days ago, Apple reported fiscal 2019 fourth quarter earnings, which saw the company earn a record income of $ 64 billion, up 2 percent year-on-year.

But iPhone sales continued to decline compared to last year, generating revenues of $ 33.36 billion, down 9.2 percent. Apple also revealed that it has set new Q4 record earnings in India and several other markets, including the US, Brazil, and various Southeast Asian countries.

Will the presence of the iPhone 5G improve the company going forward? Users have to wait and see when the iPhone 5G launches.

WhatsApp Stories Will Connect to Facebook Stories

WhatsApp Stories Will Connect to Facebook Stories

WhatsApp Status Will Connect to Facebook Stories

Technology-Portfolio.Net - WhatsApp will update the stories on the platform. That update, allows stories on WhatsApp to be seen on other platforms.

This means, now, users can share WhatsApp status directly to Facebook Stories.

WhatsApp uses the IOS and Android data sharing API to link status to one application with another. Thus, the data transfer process occurs between applications that exist in the device.

By sharing that data, users can share Whatsapp stories to several other platforms such as Instagram, Google Picture, Gmail, and so on.

Although shared with other platforms, uploads on Whatsapp and other digital applications will be separate. Both will not be connected. In addition, there will be no options that make Whatsapp status automatically shared with other services.

Whatsapp requires users to decide whether they want to share the status or not to other services.

Keep in mind, this feature update was rolled out by Whatsapp in the Beta version. So, not all users can access it. For those who want to try it, they can update the Whatsapp application first. If you're lucky, you'll get the chance to taste the brand-new feature.

Whatsapp status is a feature similar to Instagram stories. Users can upload short photos and videos that last 24 hours.

Previously, even though there was a direct link to share it with Facebook, so far before there was an update, Whatsapp said that it did nothing to link user accounts with those two different services.

Technology-Portfolio.Net - Many smartphone companies are preparing to welcome 5G technology. Including Samsung, which claims to be ready for mass production of 5G chips.

The Samsung Exynos 5100 chip has been equipped with 5G technology. This chip will be used for what smartphone?.

Most likely this 5G chip will be used for the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphone. As is known, the Samsung Galaxy S10 currently does not support 5G networks.

The Exynos 5100 chip supports 5G multi-mode. But it's not just this chip that's ready for mass production.

Samsung has also prepared a single-chip radio frequency transceiver, Exynos RF 55 and an Exynos SM 5800 supply modulator.

The Exynos chip will also be used on the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Smartphone. This smartphone itself is prepared to be released soon.

The Samsung Exynos 5100 itself was revealed in August 2018 ago. Samsung claims to be the first 5G modem chip to support the 3GGP's 5G New Radio standard (5G-NR).

Exynos 5100 itself is claimed to be able to provide speeds of 5x faster than 4G. Also increases 4G connectivity to 6 Gbps download speeds.

Whereas Exynos RF 5500 has 14 receiver lines for downloading, 4x4 MIMO (Multiple-Input, Multiple-Output), and and many more 5G network support.

Then the Exynos SM5800 is claimed to be able to increase power consumption efficiency by up to 30 percent. These three chips support the 5G-NR sub-6-gigahertz (GHz) spectrum.

In essence, the 5G chip from Samsung will bring 5G technology to their latest smartphone, including the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.

Google Release Android Q Beta 2, Bring Notification ‘Bubbles’

Google Release Android Q Beta 2, Bring Notification ‘Bubbles’

Technology-Portfolio.Net - When the Android Q Developer Preview was launched last month, it was discovered that Google could consider introducing new features to manage notifications in the form of "chat heads". For those who don't know it yet, this is a kind of Facebook that introduces the concept of chat heads which is a floating icon on the home screen, where users can tap to chat quickly with their friends.

The advantage of this feature is that chat heads always exist and are on top of existing applications, saving users time rather than having to go back and forth to change applications. Now it seems like the feature has been confirmed in Android Q's second beta. On the Google Android Developers blog, the company announced a new feature they called "Bubbles".

It seems that the feature will function in the same way as chat heads, except that this will work in more applications and notifications. According to Google, "Bubbles is great for sending messages because it allows users to keep important chats in easy reach. They also provide a comfortable view of tasks and ongoing updates, such as telephone calls or time of arrival. They can provide quick access to portable UI such as notes or translations, and can also be a reminder of tasks. "

It seems that it can be an interesting and more convenient way to deal with notifications, although we imagine that some users might not appreciate these bubbles floating on their home screens all the time. However, Android Q is still in beta so for everything we know at the moment, this feature might not be available in the final version.

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.
