Apple HomePod is Apple’s first Smart Speaker which was supposed to ship in December 2017 but will ship in February this year instead. But with too many flaws, it’s not clear yet that HomePod is the ultimate Google Home competitor.

HomePod-2

As the title suggests, HomePod will ship with key features like multiple-room audio support and stereo sound between two HomePods absent. That’s right. So basically, you are good to go if you ordered one HomePod but if you wanted that ultimate surround sound experience that Apple showcased last year at WWDC, you better wait till the end of this year.

AppleInsider was able to use the HomePod during the 2017 WWDC, and was able to listen to a pair of HomePods paired for stereo. It is unclear why the feature is not included with the release of the device.

Multiple-room support appears to be a function of AirPlay 2 —so why it is not included with the HomePod isn’t clear, unless Apple is expecting more delays in releasing the technology to users in iOS and macOS.

An attendee takes photographs of the Apple Inc. HomePod speakers displayed during the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California, U.S., on Monday, June 5, 2017. The conference aims to inspire developers from around the world to turn their passions into the next great innovations and apps that customers use every day across iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV and Mac.

Apple says that both features will be coming later this year with an over the air software update. An update to which platform, be it the HomePod, iOS, macOS, or all three to enable the features wasn’t made clear, though.

Also not clear is launch support for languages beyond English. Siri already has support for many languages, including French and German —languages in countries next on tap for HomePod availability.

HomePod looks like a Mac Pro with under 7 inches height in a 3D mesh acoustic fabric. In addition to the A8 chip, it has 7 tweeters and a dynamic modeling subwoofer.

As previously announced, the HomePod retails for $349 in white and space gray in the US, UK and Australia. It will be available in France and Germany later in the spring. The HomePod is compatible with iPhone 5s or later, iPad Pro, iPad Air or later, iPad mini 2 or later, or iPod touch (6th generation) with iOS 11.2.5 or later.

Here’s how HomePod settings interface will look like.

Can Apple HomePod be able to compete with the likes of Google Home and Amazon Alexa Speakers? Let us know in the comments section below.

Started with the S8, now even with the OnePlus 5T, bezel less displays have been the trend of 2017 so far. No matter what  you call it the Infinity Display or Super Retina Displays (both being manufactured by Samsung), even Apple finally changed its age old design to a top “notch” one. Pun intended.

The iPhone X

 

But not eveyone has acheived to do it quite successfully. A true bezel-less experience is yet to happen, because manufacturers are struggling to fit front components like speakers, front camera and proximity sensors. Samsung initially did this with the S7 edge by eliminating the side bezels and with S8, they further minimized the top and bottom bezels. With the Essential Phone, they further decreased the top bezel with a 84.9% screen to body ratio, which is 0.9% more than the S8. The iPhone X has only 82% screen ratio to its body.

The Beautiful Galaxy S8

So.. What’s Next?

A couple of days earlier, Sriyansa found out that the Galaxy S9 would he having an identical design to its predecessor, amd also said that the yet-to-be-launched flagship doesn’t have much of a design overhaul than the three flagships, Samsung launched in 2017. But according to latest reports by reliable sources, the S9 and S9+ will be having a whoping 90% screen to body ratio.

The S9+ is also rumoured to have a dual camera but in vertical orientation, with fingerprint sensor at the bottom for more convenience. While in the display department, Samsung already has an edge over the iPhone X, we can also expect the company to launch its own FaceID-like facial recognition technology.

Samsung is now planning to show off the next Galaxy smartphone a bit early than expected with the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ scheduled to make their first public appearance at January’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Apparently, Samsung is still holding an official launch event in March just like they did with S8.

Both the phones are nearly identical to their predecessors. Codenamed as the Star 1 and Star 2, and the model numbers being SM-G960 and SM-G965 ; the S9 amd S9+ will feature the same 8-inch and 6.2-inch curved-edge Super AMOLED “Infinity” displays, respectively, as their predecessors. The phones are likely to use a 10-nanometer fabricated processor, highly suggesting towards Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and a similar Exynos model for some region.

Well we now know that screen sizes are identical but that’s the only thing which is similar. The S9+ will now have a 6GB RAM variant, amd even a second rear camera, just like the Note 8. Both have 64GB internal storage and will (fortunately) have the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Another interesting thing is that both phones now have their cameras in vertical configuration, just like the iPhone X, with the fingerprint scanner situated at the bottom, the most frequent complaint about the S8, S8+ and Note 8 finally being solved. Another change that’s sure to be well-received is the addition of AKG stereo speakers.

The next generation galaxy devices seem to solve the problems of their predecessors, but are those enough to keep up more aggressive phones coming in the future?

Let us know in the comments below.

Ewan Spence popular AAWP contributor, has been speculating about Nokia possibly getting back into the smartphone world in 2016, with non other than Jolla, who are building a follow on to the Linux based mobile platform MeeGo Harmattan, which Nokia put inside the N9.

It is something a lot of people have suggested might happen, even before the announcement of Microsoft buying out the Devices Division of Nokia, and while not something I personally see happening, does make an interesting prospect.

There’s a lot of corporate memory in place, there are resources, and a little bit of pride. All it would take is a little bit of direction and team building, and Nokia could easily be back in the smartphone game…
It’s a long road for Jolla, but if they can make a success of their first handset during the first half of 2014, and work on a second handset for late 2015, then the boutique smartphone manufacturer will become a very attractive property either for an IPO or a buy-out by a larger company who wants to get into the smartphone game…
Nokia’s Board has agreed a deal that could see them legitimately return to the smartphone world in just over two years, and many of the engineers who worked on the Nokia N9 are working on its spiritual successor in Helsinki, just a stone’s throw away from Nokia’s head office in Espoo…
…the pieces are laid out for a careful return some time in 2016, and the life boat of Jolla that once sailed away from Nokia could help them make a successful return.

And let’s not forget former Nokia Asian Pacific CEO Thomas Ziliacus has put together Newkia while at an even earlier stage, and based in a different part of the world, is another team of ex Nokia employees.

Who knows what will happen, I for one will be interested to see where Nokia go in the future. Let us know your views in the comments section below.
