Galaxy S21

Yes, CES is still happening, but before we get into more specific launches, let’s discuss some of our favorite single-out announcements. Beginning with Qualcomm as the company just launched the second generation of their ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. This new sensor is 77% larger than its predecessor and works 50% faster; this improved sensor will reportedly debut with the S21 if history repeats itself. Intel announced their 11th Gen Core H Series of mobile chips, which power gaming laptops based on a 10nm process, supporting up to 5GHz clock speeds, PCIe Gen 4, Thunderbolt 4, and more features. But 10nm, huh, Intel?

The Jabra Elite 85Ts are some of my favorite earbuds just got four new colorways, including Gold, Copper, Black, and Grey, in case you were waiting for some variety. Fossil just announced the Gen 5 LTE, which brings a 45mm sleek design, and it now allows you to take calls directly on the smartwatch, which is pretty nice for $349. And guys, there’s so much more CES 2021 coverage on Pocketnow.com, but we have specific articles for each product and their details in the links in the description.

AMD unleashes Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 series mobile processors Nvidia unveils RTX 30 series laptop GPUs and GeForce RTX 3060 desktop graphicsLet’s keep talking about CES; we know that a lot of you guys like it when we cover PC parts, and well, Nvidia and AMD are back at it again. Starting with AMD just unveiled their Ryzen 5000 Series of mobile processors divided into two families, the H and the U Series. The H Series targets gaming enthusiasts in six and 8-core variants with peak clock speeds of 4.8GHz, which is interesting considering Intel is pushing 5GHz.

Regarding the U Series, these are aimed at ultra-books and the rest of mass-market laptops; these range from 4 to 8 cores, with pretty much the same base specs as some of the H Series but only pushing up to 4.4GHz. AMD is looking at 23% higher single-threaded performances and a 17% increase in multi-threaded versions. Moving on to Nvidia, the company revealed the RTX 30 Series laptop GPUs and an RTX 3060 desktop GPU. These are based on their 3rd Gen Max Q technology, offering up to 2x ray tracing output, and the new tensor cores are claimed to be 2x more capable. Overall, Nvidia aims at higher efficiency, better performance, and refined acoustics. Over 70 laptops with the RTX 30 Series will debut this month alone, so you can check out all of the specifics in the links below. For a minute, I was like – are we sure about that number, or is it 7? But nope, 70 laptops.

HONOR announces MagicBook Pro, HONOR Band 6

Sticking to CES, let’s move on to Honor as we know that the company went independent from Huawei a couple of months ago, and they just announced their upcoming flagship products. First, we got the Honor MagicBook Pro, which brings a 16.1 display with a 90% screen-to-body ratio. It’s powered by a 10th Gen Intel processor, 16GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM, and 512GB of PCIe NVMe SSD; it brings dual fans and dual heat pipes for cooling. It includes Bluetooth 5.0, an HDMI port, 3 USB A ports, a USB C port, a headphone jack, and a fingerprint sensor. It charges up to 50% in just 30 minutes. Moving on to wearables, we also got the Honor Band 6, which features a 1.47 AMOLED Display, supporting ten workout modes and 14 days of battery life. It brings 5 ATM water resistance and a heart rate monitor, oxygen monitor, sleep and stress monitor, and even a female cycle tracker. It comes in three color variants: Meteorite Black, Sandstone Grey, and Coral Pink. Sadly we didn’t get word on price tags yet, but it should be on global markets soon.

Is this the new design of the 2021 iPad Pro refresh?

Now let’s talk about Apple, particularly iPads, as it seems that Cupertino is planning an aggressive push here. Lately, there have been many rumors about the upcoming iPads as we’re expecting a refresh to the regular iPad, and we’re supposed to get mini-LED displays on the Pros very soon. Now, we have some new CAD renders of both iPad Pro models coming from 91Mobiles and MySmartPrice. Starting with the bigger model, it looks like it’s bringing pretty much the same design language as the current model with the boxy design, the single USB-C port, and the smart connector for the keyboard. The camera is still a dual-module along with the LiDAR sensor.

Regarding the 11inversion, it also looks like its predecessor, which we got back in 2020, but it will be a couple of millimeters thinner and shorter. The CAD renders also show that we might be getting a Touch ID sensor similar to the one on the iPad Air, and you can also notice it on the renders for the 12.9 iPad. We’re expecting these iPads sometime this year, running on a variant of the A13 or A14 Bionic, along with a mini-LED display. Given the pandemic, it seems that iPad sales are up if Apple plans to make a broader push and even bring a more aggressive price tag.
