And as expected, a lot of the rumors about these two phones turn out to be true especially in the case of them sporting that force touch feature that we saw in the new <a href="http://www.thetechielifestyle.com/2015/03/apple-spring-forward-new-macbook.html">MacBook</a>.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OlPpyeP07E0/VfCqtZvw9rI/AAAAAAAAObI/rO1QnXNPZxo/s1600/iPhone%2B6.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OlPpyeP07E0/VfCqtZvw9rI/AAAAAAAAObI/rO1QnXNPZxo/s1600/iPhone%2B6.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The feature which is called 3D touch on the iPhone works the same way as the Force touch feature on the MacBook in the sense that it recognizes when a user applies extra force to a tap and translates it to a certain command. It also uses a “Taptic engine” which provides real-time feedback to users so they know what type of action they are performing and what they can expect to see as a result of that action.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Specs-wise the new iPhones are almost identical to their non-S counterparts with the exception of some hardware and performance upgrade brought about by the new A9 chips with embedded M9 motion coprocessors, and the 12MP iSight camera at the back that is now capable of capturing 4K video at 30 frames per second.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ayqAo2MA6Tk/VfCqx43YRsI/AAAAAAAAObQ/2dHfNPZ44cw/s1600/iPhone%2B6S2.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ayqAo2MA6Tk/VfCqx43YRsI/AAAAAAAAObQ/2dHfNPZ44cw/s1600/iPhone%2B6S2.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The 5MP front camera also gets a new feature called the Retina Flash which uses the handset’s display as a true-tone flash.

Apple’s new flagship slate has a 12.9-inch display with jaw-dropping 2732 x 2048 resolution (~264ppi). Power is delivered by a new A9x chip that is said to deliver almost twice the performance of the A8x chip on the Air 2 complemented by an M9 motion coprocessor.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0m93YjVL4bk/VfCfxbRnJ7I/AAAAAAAAOag/Uj_rhXewif8/s1600/Ipad%2BPro.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0m93YjVL4bk/VfCfxbRnJ7I/AAAAAAAAOag/Uj_rhXewif8/s1600/Ipad%2BPro.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Apple has also upgraded the iPad’s audio equipment.

In terms of specs, the tablet lies between the iPad Air 2 and the first iPad Air in terms of performance. It has an A8 chip that is 1.3 times faster than the A7 chip in the Mini 3. It also boasts the same M8 motion coprocessor as in the Air 2.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-08E79rqHMic/VfCf7l_5PsI/AAAAAAAAOaw/lrgAF1b8CiU/s1600/Apple%2BPencil.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-08E79rqHMic/VfCf7l_5PsI/AAAAAAAAOaw/lrgAF1b8CiU/s1600/Apple%2BPencil.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The camera on the Mini 4 has also been upgraded to the same 8MP iSight camera as in the other bigger models.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The iPad Pro will be available starting in November for $799 for the 32GB Wi-Fi only version and goes up to $1079 for the 128GB LTE version.

So, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the company has made several smartphone and tablet announcements at the German event.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">To be more specific, Lenovo has announced three new Vibe phones – the Vibe S1, Vibe P1 and Vibe P1m.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The first phone that was introduced at IFA was the Vibe S1. The handset tries to compete with selfie phones from other manufacturers such as Asus and Sony. However, instead of competing in the megapixel race, the Vibe S1 goes after the competition through software improvements.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2NiqyuMAobk/Vex919pmRTI/AAAAAAAAOWU/aXmdhXY2Rj4/s1600/Lenovo%2BVibe%2BS1.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2NiqyuMAobk/Vex919pmRTI/AAAAAAAAOWU/aXmdhXY2Rj4/s1600/Lenovo%2BVibe%2BS1.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">For instance, the camera has two front-facing cameras – an 8MP and a 2MP snapper that analyzes depth of field information in order to replicate human binocular vision. Images taken using these cameras can be edited on the fly using several photo filters pre-installed on the handset including bokeh and a “cut out” effect that allows users to crop people out of a selfie and paste them onto another image.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">As for the performance department, the Vibe S1 is powered by a MediaTek chip with an octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The handset also comes with a 5-inch Full HD display, a 13MP camera at the back, a 2500mAh battery and LTE connectivity.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Lenovo will be shipping the Vibe S1 starting November for $299. It will be offered in two color options: pearl white and midnight blue.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Next, we have the Lenovo Vibe P1 and P1m.

The phone’s’ battery also supports fast charging and features a “rocket charge” function that monitors the battery to prevent overheating.

The company’s new Xperia Z5 comes alongside a compact version and a Premium variant that packs a 4K display.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-e6TvAjFqT5k/Vev9mdeFQkI/AAAAAAAAOT8/IA_iePj5nGk/s1600/Xperia%2BZ5.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-e6TvAjFqT5k/Vev9mdeFQkI/AAAAAAAAOT8/IA_iePj5nGk/s1600/Xperia%2BZ5.png" /></a></div><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The base Xperia Z5 touts a 5.2-inch Full HD panel with a screen density of 428ppi with the company’s Triluminos and X-reality technologies. Inside, there’s a Snapdragon 810 chipset with dual quad-core processors clocked up to 2GHz, an Adreno 430 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. <o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="MsoNormal">The back of the Z5 is where you’ll find the 23MP custom-made camera that’s exclusive to Sony and is complemented by a 24mm-equivalent f/2.0 lens. There’s also a fingerprint sensor, but Sony has decided to put it on the side instead of at the back of at the front as with most devices in the market.</div><div class="MsoNormal"><o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal">Sony has decided to get a 2900mAh battery for the Xperia Z5 and has IP68 certification just like its predecessors.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-L-uPZNpH_z0/Vev9taUbffI/AAAAAAAAOUE/9RZLFI035cw/s1600/Xperia%2BZ5%2Bcompact.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-L-uPZNpH_z0/Vev9taUbffI/AAAAAAAAOUE/9RZLFI035cw/s1600/Xperia%2BZ5%2Bcompact.png" /></a></div><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Meanwhile, the Xperia Z5 compact goes with a 4.6-inch display with 720p resolution at 323ppi. It has the same Snapdragon 810 chip and Adreno 430 GPU inside but the RAM has been reduced to 2GB. Just like the base Z5, the compact also comes with the 23MP at the back but skimps a few on the battery with just a 2700mah unit.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Lastly, there’s Xperia Z5 Premium with a 4K Triluminos IPS display with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels at 806ppi. It also comes with a 1/2.3-inch Exmore RS sensor that churns out 23MP stills. Furthermore, the camera is partnered with an f/2.0 lens and a number of software helpers including Intelligent Auto Mode and SteadyShot technology.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-QeIJmnVkAYk/Vev9yc0O-nI/AAAAAAAAOUI/syhV49iCJTY/s1600/Xperia%2BZ5%2Bpremium.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-QeIJmnVkAYk/Vev9yc0O-nI/AAAAAAAAOUI/syhV49iCJTY/s1600/Xperia%2BZ5%2Bpremium.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The camera on the front of the device is a 5MP Exmor R sensor and has a 25mm wide-angle lens, so you can get more people in a single frame when taking a wefie. Sony has also invested in audio for the Z5 premium with High-res audio and DSEE-HX.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Just like in the other Z5 models, the Z5 Premium comes with a Snapdragon 810 chip and gets 3GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage.

But this year, it seems the company is drawing the battle lines against one very popular player in the industry – Apple.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">For instance, its newest flagship model the Mate S has a new feature that was taken from Apple’s playbook – Force Touch. The device uses a Force Touch sensor, which rumor has it will also be incorporated in the upcoming iPhone 6S. <o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-1oOBc839TLI/Vevhg7a8rBI/AAAAAAAAOTQ/f9J4xYmJCy0/s1600/Ascend%2BMate%2BS.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-1oOBc839TLI/Vevhg7a8rBI/AAAAAAAAOTQ/f9J4xYmJCy0/s1600/Ascend%2BMate%2BS.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Looking at the rest of the device’s specs sheet, we see a 5.5-inch AMOLED panel with 1080p resolution and a screen color saturation of 105 percent. There’s also a Gorilla Glass 4 panel on top of the screen, a Kirin 935 chipset with two quad-core processors, 3GB of RAM and up to 64GB of onboard storage.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The Mate S uses a 13MP BSI sensor that is complemented by an f/2.0 lens and a dual-LED flash. Huawei has also equipped the camera with optical image stabilization and a sapphire crystal front element. The selfie camera on the device has an 8MP sensor with an f/2.4 lens and LED soft light.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Energy is provided by a 2700mAh battery while Android 5.1.1 runs the software department. There’s also a fingerprint sensor at the back, just like the <a href="http://www.thetechielifestyle.com/2014/09/ifa-2014-its-all-about-number-7-for.html">Ascend Mate 7</a> from last year.

The chassis also features customizable LED effects that can show up to 8 million colors.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Then we have the new ROG G752 laptop. Just like any other gaming laptop announced at the event, the G752 boasts the latest Intel Core i7 processor which is complemented by an NVidia GTX 900M graphics processor. <o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-U3_RDjwhnY0/Ves_mArrvAI/AAAAAAAAOSI/g7hqh1HeNN8/s1600/G752.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-U3_RDjwhnY0/Ves_mArrvAI/AAAAAAAAOSI/g7hqh1HeNN8/s1600/G752.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">One interesting feature of the G752 would be its innovative dust-release thermal solution that collects dust and channels it outside the device to prevent dust buildup and increase system stability and longevity.

These include the new Revo modular PC, the Chromebook R11 and the Aspire R14 among others.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">First up, we have the Acer Revo Build PC, a new desktop with a modular design that falls in the same concept as Razer’s <a href="http://www.thetechielifestyle.com/2014/01/ces-2014-razers-project-christine.html">Project Christine</a> from CES 2014. This design allows users to customize their unit based on their specific needs and preferences. <o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-3l_BSMIuSTo/Vei0mTSWiFI/AAAAAAAAORc/dV4Sw8MDe7M/s1600/Revo%2BBuild%2BPC.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-3l_BSMIuSTo/Vei0mTSWiFI/AAAAAAAAORc/dV4Sw8MDe7M/s1600/Revo%2BBuild%2BPC.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The entire device uses modules or “blocks” that sit on top of one another and are connected to each other with pogo pins that are aligned using magnets. The unit that was featured on Acer’s keynote included blocks designed for graphics, storage and power. Furthermore, each block can be used independently with other PCs as well. For instance, the storage block can double as a portable external hard drive when used with another device.</div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal"><o:p></o:p>The Revo Build PC is going to be available starting next month for €199. Acer will also likely have its own store where it will sell blocks for the Revo Build PC, so that’s another thing we have to look forward to.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Next, we have the Chromebook R11, the company’s first convertible Chrome OS-powered device. As the name implies, the device comes with an 11.6-inch display which offers 1366 x 768 resolution. The R11 also comes with an Intel Celeron chip and of course those 360-degree hinges which gives it its name.<o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-EK6anHDMjcw/Vei0xZn331I/AAAAAAAAORk/lTcHgwJwotQ/s1600/Chromebook%2BR11.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-EK6anHDMjcw/Vei0xZn331I/AAAAAAAAORk/lTcHgwJwotQ/s1600/Chromebook%2BR11.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The Chromebook R11 will officially launch in October and will be sold for $299. <o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">Then we have the new Aspire R13 which is actually a refresh of last year’s model and features the same Ezel Aero Hinge that allows the device to flip the screen into a tablet. <o:p></o:p></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal">The R13 packs Intel’s new Skylake processors and Qualcomm’s Wi-Fi with MU-MIMO technology and Thunderbolt to USB Type C connection. The laptop can be configured using 2 SSDs in a RAID-0 setup to achieve higher data throughput. The laptop will be on sale next month starting at around $899.<o:p></o:p></div></center><center><b><br /></b></center><center><b>Connect with The Techie Lifestyle on your favorite social networking sites</b></center><center><b><br /></b></center><center></center><center> <a href="https://twitter.com/TechieLifestyle" target="_blank"><img alt="Twitter" src="http://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-gTztQUAlTPM/UWjsjRj3pjI/AAAAAAAADYM/frK2UJvtn9U/s32/twitter.png" style="height: 32px; width: 32px;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Techie-Lifestyle/442902742454471" target="_blank"><img alt="Facebook" src="http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-8OadSnlEksg/UWjsiAZnWKI/AAAAAAAADX0/9gxyBXE2P48/s32/facebook.png" style="height: 32px; width: 32px;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://www.thetechielifestyle.com/feeds/posts/default" target="_blank"><img alt="Subscribe to RSS Feeds" src="http://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-3czKreGoj58/UWjsjQK_M_I/AAAAAAAADYQ/CT58cksU6uM/s32/rss.png" style="height: 32px; width: 32px;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="https://plus.google.com/b/101126599969164844685/101126599969164844685/posts" target="_blank"><img alt="Google Plus" src="http://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-b7jyruTcZh4/UWjsiozfO5I/AAAAAAAADX4/WrJppVtsMRw/s32/gplus2.png" style="height: 34px; width: 34px;" /></a>&nbsp;<a href="http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=thetechielifestyle/ubIk" target="_blank"><img alt="Follow via Email" src="http://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-072rnCEa_BA/UWjsiBo1y1I/AAAAAAAADXs/1A70LoJO-BE/s32/email.png" style="height: 34px; width: 34px;" /></a></center>Zy Gonzaleshttps://plus.google.com/111103894417898668554noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7996885751353395570.post-89132912005506466502015-09-02T22:30:00.002+08:002015-09-02T22:30:20.992+08:00IFA 2015: Acer Liquid Z630, Z530 and Z330<center style="text-align: justify;"><div class="ssmainhide" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-_KBtFhxJu4A/VecHMNNLEpI/AAAAAAAAOP8/iBPMrVQ7A1o/s1600/Acer%2Bmobile%2Bcover.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-_KBtFhxJu4A/VecHMNNLEpI/AAAAAAAAOP8/iBPMrVQ7A1o/s1600/Acer%2Bmobile%2Bcover.png" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal">It’s becoming a tradition for some manufacturers at IFA to jump the gun on product announcements even before the event starts.
