The Nokia 8.2, which was initially rumoured to come in two variants – 4G and 5G –, may ditch the older network standard entirely according to a scoop by NokiaPowerUser (NPU), the fan website. It is likely to be powered by the Snapdragon 735 SoC, and is expected to launch at the Mobile World Congress 2020, which is slated to happen in February. It was earlier reported that the Nokia 8.2 would be released in December 2019. The earlier generation Nokia 8.1 was unveiled in December last year, fueling speculation that the next iteration would follow a similar update timeline. NPU had initially claimed that a 4G model would be the first to hit the market, followed by the 5G variant. In many markets, including India, the government is still laying the groundwork for the rollout of 5G telephony, meaning that prospective buyers will have to wait to utilize the optimal performance of their new handsets. HMD Global, the maker of Nokia phones, is also a major player in telecom … [Read more...] about 5G support, Snapdragon 735 SoC & more: Nokia 8.2 could be this year’s last premium smartphone
Lincoln has reintroduced its Aviator SUV for 2020. This new three-row luxury SUV is spacious, comfortable, and at the forefront of the brand’s efforts to introduce more attractive and desirable vehicles. To find out how far Lincoln has come, Edmunds has compared the Aviator to its top-ranked midsize three-row luxury SUV, the 2019 Audi Q7. The Q7 boasts impressive technology and safety features plus a quiet and user-friendly interior. So which one is better for your daily driving, and which offers better value and more equipment? INTERIOR SPACE The Q7 and the Aviator are almost exactly the same length, but the Q7 is a bit narrower from side to side and a bit shorter at the roof. These proportions translate into a slight cargo space advantage for the Aviator. It has 18.3 cubic feet of space behind its third-row seat compared to the Q7′s 14.2 cubic feet. From there, the Aviator edges out the Q7 in pretty much every other interior space measurement, including headroom, legroom … [Read more...] about Edmunds compares the 2019 Audi Q7 and 2020 Lincoln Aviator

Wireless timeline Settle in, class — the history lesson is about to begin. Joe Maring 13 Nov 2019 0 Previous 1 of 5 Next: 2005 — Bluetooth 2.0 Source: Andrew Martonik / Android Central Our smartphones are made up out of a lot of different components. When we cover them in reviews and news, we tend to focus on things like display quality, processor speed, cameras, etc. Those are all very important, but one feature that tends to often go unmentioned is Bluetooth. When you think about just how regularly we use Bluetooth, that's kind of silly. We rely on the wireless standard for listening to music on Bluetooth headphones, playing games with controllers, using a mouse and keyboard for productivity work, and so much more. The core idea of Bluetooth has remained the same since the introduction of version 1.0 back in 1999, and right now, we're going to take a look back at all of Bluetooth's many iterations, starting with the first one and going up to the 5.1 … [Read more...] about A history of all the major Bluetooth releases and updates
