​Honor Magic 2 launches with retractable slide for fuller screen

Published

on

The Honor Magic 2 smartphone that comes with a retractable slide has launched in Beijing, China.

Huawei’s latest offering from its sub-brand has a slider design that hides its front cameras to offer a near full-view screen for its 6.39-inch display. Users can slide the cameras out for selfies.

It is the successor to the Honor Magic — in which the company highlighted its artificial intelligence (AI) features — that was launched in 2016.

The Honor Magic 2 has 24-megapixel triple-lens camera in its rear, and the retractable 16-megapixel triple-lens front camera that also offers 3D facial recognition.

The smartphone boasts a Huawei flagship Kirin 980 processor, in-display fingerprint sensors, and its Yoyo virtual assistant.

Sales of the phone will begin in China on November 6.

The Honor Watch was unveiled alongside the Magic 2. It is the first smartwatch from Huawei to carry the Honor brand, and comes with a 1.2-inch AMOLED screen, double-sided straps, and a heart rate monitor. The smartwatch will roll out in January 2019.

In August, Huawei also launched the Honor Play, a smartphone marketed as a gaming phone, in Asia.

Huawei has successfully packed mid-range phones with flagship features, and has chipped away at Samsung’s market share.

Today’s Wordle Answer #472 – October 4, 2022 Solution And Hints

Published

on

The answer to today’s Wordle puzzle (#472 – October 4, 2022) is bough, which is what you call a branch, especially the main branch, of a tree. The word bough has roots (no pun intended) in the Old English word “bōg,” which means shoulder, similar to Old High German’s “buog,” which means the same thing (via Etymonline). There’s a popular Roman myth about the Golden Bough, which is a tree branch with golden leaves that enabled the trojan hero Aeneas to travel safely through the land of the dead. 

We solved the puzzle in three tries today, kicking things off with an expert-endorsed starter word, slate. We tried the word brush next, which turned out to be a really lucky guess with three green tiles. The answer was apparent by the third guess, and since we also solved the puzzle in three guesses yesterday, that begins a three-try streak that we hope we can continue tomorrow!

How To Display iPhone 14 Pro’s Dynamic Island On Any Android Device

You can also choose whether to display the cutout at the center of the display (for hole-punch cameras on the center of the display) or on the left for cameras placed in the corner. Remember that as you increase or decrease the cutout size, the icons shown in it will also scale to match. Thankfully, the app gives you a preview of the cutout when you are changing the settings.

You can also modify gestures such as single tap or long press. Dynamic Spot also allows you to change the default time, after which the pop-up automatically disappears. Additionally, you can fiddle with a lot of appearance-related settings, such as the animation when the Dynamic Island clone pops up or unfolds.

Just as on the iPhone 14 Pro, the Dynamic Spot on your Android app will show the app icon when a new notification arrives. You may selectively choose which apps display the notifications or allow all apps of them. You can also tap on the app’s icon to open the notification or long-press the icon to preview the notification.

The 10 Wildest Features Of The Mercedes Maybach Off-Roader

Published

on

Sustainability is a word on every car manufacturer’s radar right now, with more focus being given to the idea of eco-friendly vehicles than ever before. The Off-Roader plays into that theme by featuring a prominent set of solar panels mounted on its hood, which could be used to generate power to extend the range of the car. It’s worth pointing out that this is all hypothetical, as the show car is non-functional, and has no drivetrain. Mercedes is keen to stress, though, that if the car did have a drivetrain, it would be all-electric, although no detail is given on the power or range that would be available to drivers.

The solar panels are interwoven with yet more Maybach logos, and their tinted finish makes them blend in almost seamlessly with the rest of the hood. It’s been pointed out by industry analysts that adding solar panels to cars is not always as environmentally friendly as it might seem, as the panels are only able to generate a very small amount of power. That power can easily be consumed by the added A/C strain caused by parking a car out in the sun all day to charge it. Car-mounted solar panels might be a flawed idea in practice, but even so, it’s interesting to see how Abloh was able to inconspicuously add them in without compromising the overall look of the car.
