Samsung 360 Round is a 3D 360° camera for the pros

Sponsored Links

After years of development, the Samsung 360 Round is official. This a 360° camera that can stream VR content in a more professional setting, unlike the Gear 360. For one, it has a total of 17 cameras organized in 8 pairs plus one on the top. This allows it to stream immersive 4K 360° videos in 3D (something the Gear camera cannot do). If you've tried watching 360° video from a consumer camera, you'll likely have noticed that it's in 2D, which spoils the illusion. It takes pairs of cameras to create a 3D image with depth. High quality audio is supported out of the box with 6 internal...

Google Pixel 2 XL teardown reveals what's inside, results in 6 out of 10 repairability score

Now that the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are available in Verizon stores (and the pre-orders have started shipping), it's time to take a good long look at what's inside these devices. Literally. The enterprising folks over at iFixit have chosen to tear down the Pixel 2 XL today, revealing all of its innards. That includes the recently announced Pixel Visual Core custom chipset created by Google itself. This will be enabled in Android 8.1 for even faster computational photography abilities. As usual in a modern smartphone, the rest of the components come from a lot of different companies....

Visa Checkout support comes to Android Pay

Visa Checkout allows you to pay through Visa's platform, without giving your credit or debit card information to the merchant. You just need a user name and a password. And now you can use it with Android Pay too so that password can be switched out for a fingerprint. This integration was announced almost exactly a year ago and should have arrived earlier this year, but there were obviously some delays. Anyway, in the meantime Visa Checkout celebrated 20 million customers. Checkout is meant for online and in-app purchases. So while you can't pay for coffee at Starbucks with it, you can...

Logitech announces UE Blast and Megablast Bluetooth speakers with Alexa

Logitech has announced two new Ultimate Ears speakers, the Blast and the Megablast. While on the surface they look like slightly redesigned Boom 2 and Megaboom, both of these new speakers feature Amazon Alexa built-in. Like Amazon's Echo series of devices, both Blast and Megablast feature Amazon's voice assistant built-in. Using an array of far-field microphones, the speakers can listen to your queries once you say the magic word, presumably even over the sound of music playing through its speakers. As you'd expect, both speakers have Wi-Fi and need to stay connected to the...

Oppo F5 to come in three variants

There is one week until the unveiling of the Oppo F5, but we already know some of the specs and versions of the next "Selfie Expert". According to a photo from Thailand, the device will be available as a standard Oppo F5, a more powerful Oppo F5 6 GB and a more affordable Oppo F5 Youth. The vanilla Oppo F5 will have 4 GB RAM, "AI Beauty" selfie camera that is expected to have 20 MP sensor and sadly, the outdated Android Marshmallow 6.0. The screen will most likely be 18:9 FullView display with 2160 x 1080 resolution. The Oppo F5 6 GB will have, you guessed correctly, 6 GB RAM....

HTC U11 Plus renders show a small refinement of the familiar design

The HTC U11 Plus leaks are piling on - after benchmarks revealed its innards, time to gaze at the phone's exterior. Technical details put the phone at 158.2 x 74.6 x 9.1mm in size. That would make it noticeably taller than, say, an LG V30 - another phone with a 6" 18:9 screen. Thicker too, though @LlabTooFeR (who knows a thing or two about HTC phones) suggests that the U11 Plus will have a batter capacity around 4,000mAh. If that is the case, we'd be quite happy with a 9.1mm phone. Plus, the regular U11 is 153.9mm tall already so this isn't that much of an increase for the extra screen....

Samsung Gear Sport lets you control smart devices with a turn of the bezel

Samsung's new Gear Sport smartwatch debuted in August this year and it went on pre-order recently. The device is powered by version 3.0 of the Tizen-based wearable platform, making it the first wearable of its kind. It appears though that there's one feature that went under the radar and only recently came to light. The functionality in question is the ability to control smart devices by using the rotating bezel of the smartwatch. The functionality has its roots in Gear Sport's compatibility with Samsung Connect, which is the company's home automation platform for controlling...
