The Verge 2 ECG passes through the No. 1 Huangshan chip, which also measures the pulse 24 hours a day, in addition to photoplethysmography and electrocardiogram to detect arrhythmias or atrial fibrillation.
At the connectivity level, we found NFC (being able to make payments with Alipay), Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi. The watch also has a certification IP68.

Xiaomi says she feels very sorry for this inconvenience, and they claim that all units produced as of Dec. 6 do not have that decision. It will be necessary to see how many units affected have actually caused accidents and if this could cause the company to cope with various demands in the countries where it sold the scooters.
Smartphone screens are constantly growing, but your hands are not. It leaves it to the engineers to find new, sometimes unbearable ways to introduce all the necessary sensors and hardware without creating a gigantic or hard-to-hold phone. Many phones have not adopted a screen in the last two years, but it may be a flash. Oppo and Xiaomi have just shown their next under-display camera technology.
The trend in the notch of the screen began with Apple on the iPhone X, which groups the front camera, face recognition and other sensors in the cut of l & # 39; screen. It's an objectively delicate aesthetic, but it's part of the design of a smartphone. Since then, many Android devices I've adopted the notch to house selfie cameras, 3D sensors, and so on.
Some device manufacturers have gone too far to avoid using a display screen. For example, the new OnePlus 7 Pro is equipped with a motorized contextual selfie camera and the Asus Zenfone 6 rotates the rear cameras at the front. Meanwhile, some Chinese Android phones have a slider design to hide cameras when they are not used. All of these elements allow you to get a complete and uninterrupted display, but they add another component that can break.
For those looking for a perfect and seamless screen experience on their smartphone, get ready to be surprised. 📲

The Holy Grail is a forward-facing camera that sits beneath the screen, and that's what Oppo and Xiaomi work for. In a pair of tweets, companies are showing prototypes of phones with invisible face cameras. There is no notch because the cameras are under the OLED panel. The idea is similar to the optical fingerprint sensors embedded in some current smartphone screens, but it's much harder to get a usable photo than to scan with the help of digital photos. ;a fingerprint.

When you take a photo with these phones, the portion of the screen covering the camera becomes transparent, allowing light to pass through. Xiaomi notes that his phone prototype also uses a special low reflectivity glass. These demo videos are of poor quality, so it's hard to know how the cameras work. According to Oppo, it will take time to match the cameras on display.
It is likely that Chinese automakers will deploy a few phones later this year and next year with under-screen cameras, but the photos will be potato-quality. It is a market that allows for rapid innovation and sometimes ill-advised. When the technology is more mature, we could see it coming to global brands like Samsung. For now, get used to the notch.
Calls Xiaomi Head Theater, or at the cinema for the head, these glasses have a LCD 1080p 5.08 inches 60 Hz able to emulate a screen 954 inches, giving the feeling of being in the cinema. Each eye therefore has a resolution of 960 x 1080 and a size of 2.54 inches, with a viewing angle of 63 degrees equivalent to that of a normal film film. To all this, we must add a reproduction of 95% of sRGB.
In the physical part, we find a band whose length can be adjusted between 55 and 72 mm and which, according to them, is designed for Asians. So we should see how it fits in the minds of Europeans. The glasses are designed in such a way that no external light enters the lens and the lenses have an adjustable IPD of between 58.5 and 65.8 mm. Regarding the software, the glasses include MIUI, able to reproduce all types of content by the hardware (including videos in H.265). We can also send content from the PC or mobile. In the right part, we also find several buttons to navigate the system and perform multimedia controls.
Internally, it ships an Allwinner VR9 processor, with a 16GB storage memory (expandable with a microSD card up to 256GB), 2GB of RAM and a 3,000mAh battery with a battery life of 3 hours . The connector used is a microUSB (compatible with OTG). The weight of the glasses is about 375 grams. It also has WiFi 4, Bluetooth 4.2 and 3.5 mm jacks to connect our headphones, which we can also connect via Bluetooth.
With its optimized hardware, you can play any type of 3D movie you enter, including those 4K at 60 FPS. Xiaomi says that the screen is optimized to reduce dizziness, although this inevitably happens because of the few FPSs at which the movies work. With a 90 Hz screen and content cooling at this speed (like games at 90 ips), vertigo is almost nonexistent.
Unfortunately, these glasses are not cheap and cost 1,299 RMB in China, which equates to about 169 euros to change, and will be on sale on June 7th. This price is 2.5 times lower than the Oculus Questbut they have a better ecosystem and allow us to play games, and not to use an experience similar to watching 3D movies that end up dizzying in a short time.
This speaker from the brand Qualitell retro design is a three in one. On the one hand, we have the top surface dedicated to wireless charging with a power of 5 or 10 watts with fast charge depending on the compatibility of our mobile. Second, we have connectivity Bluetooth 5.0 to be able to connect our mobile and play our music like a normal and current loudspeaker. Third, we have the opportunity to play 7 different ambient sounds, among which we can choose birds, rain, waves, forest, insects, water flow and wind. These modes are changed with the wheel whose speaker is in front. The eighth parameter allows us to choose the Bluetooth listening mode for the mobile.
To all this, we must add that we have inside a 1800 mAh batterySo we can take the speaker anywhere and enjoy 8 hours of use, although without a cable, the wireless charge does not work. Its dimensions are 150 x 97 x 76.5 mm, and the speaker inside has a significant power of 20 watts.
On the side of the speaker, we have three buttons. With the central, we can turn on the speaker and control the reproduction. With the other two buttons you can adjust the volume, and change the song if we leave it pressed on the side we want. We also found a switch with four settings: off, on, one hour and two hours, with which we can choose the duration of the ambient sounds.
Its price is 169 RMB, about 21 euros to change, and it is already on sale in China. This is the price that usually costs a lot wireless chargers, in which we only have the mouse pad. As we see, this is a very complete gadget that can become the perfect complement to our bed, especially if we like to listen to music or sounds before going to bed, or if we simply have better quality sound to listen to videos when we're in bed
