Bakeey has a very nice 2 in 1 cable that can charge 2 kinds of Android phones. Both the new Type C connector smartphones and the older MicroUSB connector phones. Another thing that you can see is the current voltage by looking at a small display.
The cable is done by using a wired nylon braided material. It’s also a cable that looks very modern. On the small display with Blue text you can both see the current display and the voltage display. Kinks and tangles are being resisted because of the superior braided material.
A good thing to know is that this 2 in 1 cable will only work with Android smartphones and tablets. The iOS phones need another cable. This cable also supports fast charging. This cable is only available in a Black colour and the cable length is just 1 meter. I wish it was a bit longer perhaps 1.5m or 2m. Because too short cable can be a problem for many if they charge via a wall outlet.
The cable current is 2A and data sync speed is 480Mbps. The core wire is a tin-plated oxygen-free copper in material! I wish this cable came in a few more colours perhaps Red and Green and Blue edition. That would make it a bit more engaging and fun to buy. Just as we are starting to see more colours on phones coming out. You can both get a Red iPhone 8 and a Red Samsung Galaxy S8.
I would love to see a cable like this but for iPhones. So you could charge an iPhone 8 and iPhone 4 with the same cable. The older iPhone charge cables was much bigger. And they wasn’t reversible in charging capability. Do you love this 2 in 1 cable for Android phones or do you think something could be improved to make it even better?
Samsung has started to work on a new chipset that will be available to handle 5G data speeds. Currently with the Galaxy S9 we have Exynos 9810 chipset. This new chipset that Samsung started to work on in January 2018 with 5G support is being called 9820. Just a slight difference in naming structure.
5G speeds will give us gigabit speeds and faster Internet. But it will be best for people that wants to download or stream things faster. Currently it’s hard to stream 4K YouTube videos for example since the video files are so large. But we are now getting both more powerful AI CPUs and GPUs for phones and we recently saw Huawei unveil the Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design that comes in a 512GB Internal storage edition. So soon streaming 4K videos will be smooth.
The rumors is they think 9820 will be built on Samsung’s 7nm EUV process. The Samsung Galaxy S10 may come with 5G support. But perhaps Samsung will change it’s naming structure since it starts to become a bit long after 10 phones.
2019 Qualcomm will come out with a new 5G Snapdragon modem that phones will be able to use. We are moving towards a future where everything constantly happens much faster. Which is very exciting. But clearly many people will be scared because new things being introduced could be very scary.
There is a great book speaking about this time that we live in it’s called The Great Acceleration by Robert Colvile. He speaks deeply about this and I highly recommend this book if you are more interested in this topic. Phones in terms of new features are starting to reach a peak.
In a few years we will see more Virtual Reality focus since that truly is the next level stuff. People are tired of looking down on a small screen. The next evolution will be something more smooth. I talked about HTC’s new VR headset a couple weeks ago. That one seems amazing! I really loved their first edition.
HTC Vive Pro is a brand new updated virtual reality headset from HTC which is an awesome upgrade from HTC Vive that got released a few years ago. This successor comes with more pixels to create an even better realistic feel.
Main specs: Dual AMOLED 3.5″ diagonal screen, 2880×1600 pixels combined with both eyes, 90 Hz refresh rate, 110 degrees field of view, Hi-res audio, Integrated microphone, USB-C 3.0 connector, DP1.2 and Bluetooth!
The tracking features on HTC Vive Pro are SteamVR Tracking, G-sensor, Gyroscope, Proximity and IPD sensor! The most impressive thing with Vive Pro is the 615 pixels per inch which gives 37% ppi increase and 78% pixel increase compared to previous generation.
They have also redesigned the face cushion and the node pad so they let in less light to create a more realistic VR experience. if I have understood it correct then audio should also be improved with this new model. They also seem to have integrated headphones on top of this model something we didn’t see with the first generation!
One of the big issues with first generation was that it was a bit bulky to take off and put on. Seems like they are trying to solve more of that by making this new generation more comfortable to wear and use by using better ergonomics.
Perhaps HTC Vive Pro won’t be a massive change compared to first generation the key seem to be more pixels but is it really worth a couple hundred more euros? Probably not for majority. The first Vive is still amazing and now you will be able to pick it up for an even lower price!
The specs that they recommend for this new VR headset is Core i5-4590 or AMD FX 8350 processor. In graphics you need GeForce GTX1060 or Radeon RX480! Memory is only at 4GB of RAM which is nice. You also need a new version of Windows either 8.1 or Windows 10! Sorry Windows 7 users…
Main specs: 3700mAh Battery, Battery Charging case, Built in rear kickstand, Magnet car holder built into the kickstand and Black colour!
The iPhone 7 Plus was Apple’s first phone that came with a dual rear camera. The bad thing with this rear camera is that it’s protruding and takes up a lot of space. It makes the device a bit unsteady. But with this case you will not have that problem anymore. Because it can rest on kickstand or stand up with it. Which will be great for viewing movies or TV shows on the go. Great for airplane travels or train travels or even in a bus.
On the bottom rear side you will find a blue Power LED Indicator light. Great for when you need to know the current status on the external battery. The iPhone 7 Plus comes with a built-in 2900mAh battery which is more than you get in iPhone X. 2900mAh + This battery case with 3700mAh you will get 6600mAh in total!
Which is like twice the power of what you would get in a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 phone. I love the sleek design on the kickstand with it’s rounded details. This is great to use in a car when you need to use the GPS and take advantage of the magnetic kickstand.
The case even comes with some side protection with 360 degree shock absorption. So it’s not just a battery case but a protective case as well. What I also enjoy with the case is that it exist for newer and older iPhone’s too. Like iPhone 6 and iPhone 8!
HETP brand got a new external battery case for Apple’s 2017 most high-end phone the iPhone X. I looks very sleek! Let’s dig deeper in to see what you get with this package.
Main case specs: 5200mAh Battery, Rechargeable External charger case, Portable Power, Lightning Charging port and Black colour!
First of all the battery that Apple put in iPhone X is coming with just 2716mAh! Which is even less than what you get inside the Galaxy Note 8. And it comes with an OLED display that will draw lots of power. So with this battery pack you get more than doubling the juice that you have available. In total you will have 2716 + 5200 = 7916 mAh! This is way more than most other high-end phones will give you.
One downside may be that audio only works over Bluetooth with this case. The length you will be able to enjoy media with this case is: +17 hours call, +60 hours music, +13 hours video and +3 hours gaming! So it’s most amazing for music lovers.
On the back side of this case you get an LED Power indicator. You can check remaining battery with 1 button touch. It shows Blue LED colour. It has very nice dual rear camera cutout.
Also not that complicated to install the phone inside the case. At the front side it may give some extra protection on the sides in case you would accidentally drop the phone. I wish this case came with a rear built-in kickstand.
That would have made it an instant sell. Especially for all the movie and TV show lovers out there. It does add a bit of weight to the device and it will be a bit harder to hold. But now you can impress your Samsung Galaxy Note friends that your phone will probably last longer!
