HTC will introduce three new phones by the end of 2017

At the beginning of 2017 HTC official said the Taiwanese company would launch no more than 6-7 phones this year. A member of the HTC community and twitter user Corn Chen now shared the codenames and some specs of all the devices due to launch by the end of 2017. We are expecting Ocean Master, Ocean Harmony, and Ocean Lite.
HTC will introduce three new phones by the end of 2017 HTC's current flagship the U11 According to Chen, the Ocean Master would come with 6” screen and two cameras - one with 12 MP sensor and another with 8 MP, probably the first on the back, while the second being the selfie snapper.
The Master will have two memory options - 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage and 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage.
The Ocean Lite and Ocean Harmony will have only one version with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. The difference between them is that the Lite will have a 5.2” screen, while the Harmony will have a 6” panel.
The Ocean Master and Ocean Lite are reported to be announced in November, while the Ocean Harmony would eventually arrive in the last month of the year, right before Christmas.
None of those three phones is the U11 Life that HTC is producing under the Android One program.

The phone has razor thin side bezels with a 2.5D glass, the top and bottom bezels are small and symmetrical. The screen itself is a bit of an unknown as there are two or three versions.

The top-specced version – Mate 10 Pro - will have a 5.9” AMOLED screen with QHD resolution. The base Mate 10 will use IPS LCD at 1080p and there could be a Lite version as well.
There’s no photo of the back, but we know what we’d see there – the new generation of Leica dual cam. It’s rumored to have an f/1.6 aperture (watch out, LG V30). Inside, there will be no other than the AI-focused Kirin 970.

Samsung's new video reminds us that Smart Switch works with iPhone

In honor of its newly released Galaxy Note8, Samsung would like to remind us of its neat Smart Switch app, which is found on all recent Galaxy flagships.
Using a single USB-C to USB-A adapter found in the Galaxy Note8 retail box you can connect your current device to the Note8 and transfer Contacts, Messages, Calendar entries, Notes, Apps, Call log and block list, browser bookmarks, alarms, Wi-Fi settings and more from your old phone.
And Smart Switch works with any iPhone with iOS 9 and above, too, in case you want to jump ship.
Smart Switch works like a charm and Apple has something similar with the 'Move to iOS' app just in case you're making the opposite move.

ZTE nubia NX595J promises to be a 5.73" bezel-less wonder

The war on bezels rages on – a new ZTE nubia (NX595J) has surfaced and it seems that victory is in its sights. The top and bottom bezels measure a measly 3mm, barely there especially when measured against the 5.73” screen.
The side bezels are even slimmer, the aluminum frame of the phone is barely visible from the front. The glass above the screen is curved on all four sides, though it’s not clear if it tries to pull off the visual tricks some of the older nubias had (the curved glass bends the light, hiding the bezel).

Assuming these images are representative of the real device, the nubia NX595J will top our screen to body chart. Unlike the Mi Mix 2, this one also boasts a dual camera on the back (with a two tone flash separating the two lenses).
Naturally, the fingerprint reader is on the back – there’s no room for it up front. Actually, we can’t quite make out the selfie camera but it seems to be above the screen.

Smartphone with Xiaomi Chiron Name Code Appears In GFXBench, Will So Mi Note 3 Pro?

Last month has emerged a new Xiaomi smartphone device with the code name Chiron seen in Beijing Subway database. Initially the smartphone is considered as Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, but after Mi MIX 2 was launched appear again smartphone with code name Xiaomi Chiron in GFXBench. Because it has different specifications, it means this device is not Xiaomi Mi MIX 2.
 
According to GFXBench, Xiaomi Chiron comes with a screen area of 5.6 inches Full HD 1080p resolution. While this smartphone is relying on Snapdragon 835 chipset that has a 2.4GHz octa-ocre processor and GPU Adreno 540.

There is also a capacity of 6GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Xiaomi Chiron has a 12MP camera that can record video up to 4K resolution and there is also a 5MP front camera resolution. Even this smartphone also has NFC support. If analyzed from the specifications that carried Chia Xiaomi, we can get a conclusion. Although Mi MIX 2 comes with Snapdragon 835 chipset, 6GB RAM, and 256GB of internal storage, we can not assume that it is another variant of Mi MIX 2 because the screen is only 5.6 inches wide and has Full HD 1080p resolution. While Mi MIX 2 rely on the screen with 18: 9 aspect ratio. So, we can assume that Xiaomi Chiron is a variant of Mi Note 3 Pro, because Mi Note 3 which has been launched carry Snapdragon 660 chipset. In fact there is also possibility this will be Mi 6 Plus which has bigger screen than Mi 6 standard. Whether it will be a smartphone what, definitely the specifications of Xiaomi Chiron is very interesting.

TEAMOSA Can Be Seduced A Perfect Tea Cup With Utlrasonic Extraction Technique

For the layman, making tea is considered an easy thing because it is not difficult to do so. But it turns out to make tea not only brewing tea leaves with hot water, because for tea lovers, various types of tea can be brewed in different ways to extract the best flavor of the tea itself.
 
In addition, please note that boiling water is not necessarily the best temperature to brew tea because it can make the tea taste to be bitterness. For ordinary tea drinkers, this may sound too much of a hassle, but in Kickstarter there is a tea maker called TEAMOSA, where it has been launched which is claimed to be able to brew a perfect cup by using the utlrasonic extraction technique.

As noted in the description, "TEAMOSA has applied ultrasonic extraction to produce higher antioxidants at a temperature of 149 ° F (65 ° C), compared to 185 ° F (85 ° C), which in turn will increase the benefits to your health. "This device will work with ready-brewed tea leaves or TEAMOSA capsules, and users can choose the different types of tea they want for brewing so that TEAMOSA can find out which temperature is good to use. In other words, TEAMOSA is a tool similar to Nespresso. So, for you tea lovers it seems TEAMOSA is quite interesting tool to have, because this tool can make tea with higher level. For now, the TEAMOSA project is still running on the Kickstarter site

Researchers Develop Artificial Intelligence That Can Detect Alzheimer as Early as Possible

For now, there is no cure that can really cure Alzheimer's, but researchers have made progress to detect this disease early. With this, the patient makes it possible to seek treatment that can help to slow the effects of Alzheimer's, or at least give them a longer time to prepare for the inevitable.
 
As Engadget reports, researchers from the University of Bari in Italy, have recently made some impressive progress to detect the disease early. They developed AI or artificial intelligence, where it seems that they have successfully developed an algorithm capable of detecting Alzheimer's as early as 10 years before symptoms can appear. What the researchers did was that they had given AI 67 MRI scans of 38 Alzheimer's patients, and an additional 29 of those who did not have the disease. The scans are then subdivided into small areas and AI is then used to analyze the nerve connectivity between them. Then, the researchers placed the AI ​​to test by scanning the brain of 148 subjects, of whom 48 had Alzheimer's, while 48 others had mild cognitive impairment that could later lead to Alzheimer's. Artificial intelligence is capable of diagnosing 86% of Alzheimer's patients and 84% of mild cognitive impairment. but the system is still far from the word ready to use normally due to the limited number of scans being tested. But at least so far the development shows the expectation.
