The rumored iPhone 5G could be the real deal in 2020

Many people were anticipating the release of an iPhone 5G this year. However, reports suggest that the trailblazer will be launched in 2020.  Based on stories and information from Apple, the 2020 iPhone 5G could be the real deal. The phone supposedly can make a significant modification in its internal architectural design and for the first time, may take 5nm chips as the Cupertino firm improves its iOS platform.  

The benefits of the 5nm for Apple is quite obvious, primarily as the phone screens get bigger which makes the phone more energy-consuming therefore decreasing the feeding of energy is a key objective of the new smartphone. Simultaneously, as many now prefer slimmer phones, the room for a big battery size may get smaller.

Not much is being said about what Apple could incorporate into its 2020 models. Although reports on how the 5G will be possible are saying that, the company will make use of an Intel 10-nanometer 8161 modem, with an 8060 acting as a testbed. On the other hand, the company might include the use of MediaTek to reach these speeds.

The device is also said to incorporate more advance reality features as a recent report suggests that the company will add a depth sensor, which will be similar to the one in front used for face recognition and to know from the back the distance from objects.

Furthermore, Apple might go to a higher level from the previous reserved slight bezel around its phone edges to a much more improved feature in the 2020 iPhone 5G. The 2020 iPhone 5G is anticipated to have the Qi wireless charging for starters, just as seen from the introduction of the iPhone 8, 8+ and X in 2017 as well as the XS, XR and XS Max also had the feature.

The up and coming age of smartphones is probably not going to come cheap. While it seems unclear the pricing method of the 2020 iPhone 5G by Apple, yet, the high-value price of $1,099  the company placed on the iPhone XS Max suggest it the 2020 phone could cost so much higher.

Samsung Raises the Game with The New Galaxy Note 20 to Rival iPhone 12 and Pixel 5

Samsung Raises the Game with The New Galaxy Note 20 to Rival iPhone 12 and Pixel 5

While other notable phone manufacturers are trimming prices amidst the pandemic, Samsung seems to be raising the bar even higher. In February alone, the Korean electronics company debuted three high-flying flagship phones each of which fell within the price range of $999 to $1,399. This is actually quite unexpected since other major competitors in the tech industry are cutting down prices on gadgets; such as Apple’s 5G iPhone 12 possibly maintaining the same price tag of $849 as its 4G predecessor – iPhone 11

In the same light, Google is deemed to be producing its latest version of the Pixel flagship – Pixel 5, with even cheaper processors to effect a price reduction lower than $700. Microsoft on the other hand is expected to slash a whopping 25% off of the Surface Earbuds, same as Apple’s AirPods prices and Pixel 4 getting a $50 price reduction. Evidently, these are only a handful of the ripple effects that the COVID-19 outbreak brings to the tech space, subsequently, the global economy.

In spite of the economic downturn that has forced most tech companies to rethink their launch price – and possibly postpone the launch dates, Samsung seems to be taking even bolder steps. How the Asian gadget-making company is responding to the current market slide is actually mind-boggling. Considering that the company is set to launch its Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy Note 20 Plus at a very exorbitant price compared to what other competitors in the market are selling for. 

This is hardly surprising since Samsung has taken greater steps to upscale, which is evident in the new features present in the Galaxy Note 20 series – such as a backplane LTPO OLED display tech and the rumored 4300mAh battery size, while others are running short on manufacturing supplies and production deliveries. Based on historical data and given the current situation, we should expect the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series to be priced well above $1000. However, the big question here is; will consumers be willing to part ways with such amount of cash for a phone that promises an extensive battery life in juxtaposition to much cheaper rivals, with less durable battery life?

SpaceX– Elon Musk’s aerospace company, just launched two NASA astronauts into space. SpaceX is a privately owned American aeronautic manufacturing and space exploration technologies corporation, founded sometime in 2002 with the primary intention of revolutionizing space technology and promoting the emigration to mars through reduced space transportation cost. SpaceX group, an enterprise spearheaded by one of the most innovative minds of our times, has introduced a new age of human spaceflight in the United States. The project codenamed ‘Crew Dragon Mission’ was the second attempt by the company to launch spacemen into the orbit, over the last two decades – as the first attempt from three days ago was canceled a few minutes before take-off due to stormy weather.

This most recent development is part of NASA’s Artemis program. It comes as a relish to NASA and SpaceX since the automated spacecraft manufacturer was sanctioned by NASA barely two weeks ago to develop a lunar optimized Starship that would transport its crew between the lunar orbit and the surface of the moon. The two astronauts involved in this record-breaking venture are; Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley – both of whom are NASA veteran space travelers.

NASA astronauts Doug and Bob lifted off circa 15:22 UTC on Saturday, 30 May 2020, from Kennedy Space Center on Merritt Island, Florida – which happens to be the same launch pad used to send the Apollo astronauts to the moon fifty years ago. Notably, the launch of the SpaceX aero flights – Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon crew capsule, from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center to the International Space Station (ISS) marks the first time in 9 years since a spacecraft has been launched from American soil and also the first time a private company has done it.

The NASA astronauts have successfully arrived at the International Space Station. In attendance to witness the event in Florida was President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and the SLOTUS – Karen Pence of the United States of America.
