Vivo Looks Set to Launch First Smartphone With In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor at MWC Shanghai

Last week, a short leaked video clip showed a Vivo smartphone with an on-screen fingerprint sensor and while the authenticity of that video was still under scrutiny, the company has now launched an official teaser that hints at the feature. As per the launch teaser, the company might be launching its upcoming smartphone with in-screen fingerprint sensor at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Shanghai, scheduled to start on June 28.

The launch teaser, shared by Vivo India on Wednesday, shows that fingerprint sensor logo going in and out of a plane, seemingly indicating that the sensor will be embedded in the display. Moreover, the company has mentioned a tagline that says “Unlock the Future” on the teaser image. While it is possible that the company could be indicating some other security feature related to the fingerprint sensor, our best guess for now would be a display-integrated fingerprint sensor.

Vivo Looks Set to Launch First Smartphone With In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor at MWC ShanghaiIn its tweet, Vivo India said, “We are thrilled to be launching a new solution in just a few days at Shanghai #MWC2017. Let’s unlock the future together!” If Vivo indeed becomes the first company to launch a smartphone with in-screen fingerprint scanner, it will come across as quite an achievement for the company as tech behemoths Apple and Samsung are said to be struggling with the feature’s implementation on their upcoming flagship smartphones.

While Samsung is said to have ditched plans for the feature altogether on Galaxy Note 8, Apple’s iPhone 8 smartphones have been tipped to face delayed shipments as the company is still contemplating the manner in which the sensor should be introduced to its upcoming iPhone 8.

Qualcomm Launches Smart Audio Platform that Makes Developing Smart Speakers Easier

Qualcomm has announced a reference “smart audio” platform for manufacturers that want to develop a smart home speaker like Google Home, Amazon Echo, or the newly announced Apple HomePod. The company says its new smart audio platform chipsets will reduce development time for manufacturers as they have the necessary hardware, software, and tools.

The chipmaker introduced the new audio platform at its Voice and Music Developers conference in Shenzhen, alongside the all-new Qualcomm DDFA audio amplifier technology and new USB Type-C audio SoCs. Qualcomm at the conference also talked about few of the trends in audio industry including streaming of music, removal of headphone jack, and emergence of smart assistants and speakers.

Under the company’s new Qualcomm smart audio platform, it will be offering the APQ8009 and APQ8017 chips; these SoCs will come with a range of software configurations designed to allow OEMs to create smart speakers across various product tiers and categories. The Qualcomm smart audio platform is planned to be available Q3 2017, though the company says that the timelinecan change. These new Qualcomm SoCs support capabilities like advanced far-field voice capture, wake-word detection, AllPlay multi-room audio streaming technology, and support for major voice ecosystems in a single solution.

The far-field voice capture will allow the smart speaker to pick up the user’s voice even from afar, while the wake-word detection will enable to wake up from sleep when the hotword, for example “Hello Google,” is said aloud by the user. Qualcomm’s AllPlay multi-room audio streaming technology will allow users to configure multiple speakers to play the same or different songs in each room of the home from streaming services, local playlists on their devices, or DLNA media servers; moreover, the open nature of the AllPlay ecosystem will enable users to link together speakers from different brands, such as Panasonic, Hitachi, House of Marley, Magnat etc, in their home using this platform.

The Qualcomm APQ8009 and APQ8017 chips also beamforming and echo cancellation; barge-in and voice capture in noisy environments; software supporting virtual assistants, and support for hands-free voice calls over both VoIP and HFP. Qualcomm has confirmed that the new smart audio platform will receive support for Amazon Alexa Voice Service and Google Assistant later this year, as well as Android Things and Google Cast for Audio.

Qualcomm’s Anthony Murray, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Voice and Music, said, “This platform is ideal for traditional speaker manufacturers wanting to make the move to a connected platform as it is designed to bring together all the necessary hardware, software and tools needed to reduce development time. It also offers a great degree of flexibility for those manufacturers who want to push the boundaries when it comes to possible future applications for smart speakers.”

Qualcomm Launches Smart Audio Platform that Makes Developing Smart Speakers EasierAdditionally, the company at the event announced a new addition to its audio system-on-chip (SoCs) platform, namely CSRA68100, which is designed for premium wireless speakers and headphones. The company says it is “designed to provide OEMs with significantly more programming resources and freedom to develop use cases with unique and differentiating features.” A highly integrated platform, it also supports several connectivity, system processing, audio processing and power management resources.

Qualcomm also announced QCC3XXX series of entry-level, flash-programmable audio chipsets. These are aimed at developing entry-level products at competitive price points for Bluetooth headsets and speakers. There’s also the new WHS9420 and WHS9410 single chip USB audio SoC platforms, designed specifically for USB-C connected audio devices. With smartphone brands doing away with the 3.5mm headphone jack, this platform is aimed at users who want to continue to use wired headsets and speakers on their phones by means of transfer of audio via the USB Type-C port.

At the event, Qualcomm also revealed its next generation Qualcomm DDFA audio amplifier technology for audio devices like wireless speakers, soundbars, networked audio, and headphone amplifiers. The next-generation DDFA tech will be available on Qualcomm’s CSRA6620 SoC, and will include a DDFA controller with eight channel inputs, two channel outputs, microcontroller and configurable audio processor. Qualcomm says the chip will “help OEMs to integrate best-in-class amplifier performance in a lower complexity, more cost effective way than was previously possible.”

Sony Launches 2017 Lineup of Its 4K HDR TVs in India

Sony has launched the 2017 models of its 4K HDR TV line-up in India, starting at Rs. 72,900 for the 43-inch model. A total of 17 models are being launched across six different series: X95E, X94E/ X93E, X90E, X82E, X75E, and X70E. While most of them go on sale this week in Sony stores across India, some will be releasing in the near future. There’s no mention of Sony’s OLED 4K TV, which stole the show at CES 2017.

The biggest and most expensive of the lot is the 75-inch X94E, which costs a whopping Rs. 6,04,900. The X95E is Sony’s new top of the line 4K HDR TV, priced at Rs. 3,04,900 for the 55-inch model, and Rs. 4,04,900 for the 65-inch one. The X93E comes after that, coming in at Rs. 2,64,900 for 55-inch, and Rs. 3,64,900 for the 65-inch.

Stepping down further, you get the X90E series, which starts at a slightly more reasonable Rs. 1,54,900 for the 49-inch model. The 55-inch and 65-inch X90E models cost Rs. 2,04,900 and Rs. 2,84,900 respectively. Further down the line you’ve the X82E, costing Rs. 87,900 for 43-inch, Rs. 1,24,900 for the 49-inch, and Rs. 1,54,900 for the 55-inch.

In the X70E line-up, you can choose from the aforementioned 43-inch model, at Rs. 72,900. If you need something bigger, the 49-inch X70E costs Rs. 94,900. That leaves the X75E – in 43-, 49-, 55- and 65-inch variants – which don’t have prices or a release date yet.

Sony Launches 2017 Lineup of Its 4K HDR TVs in IndiaThe reason the X94E is so expensive isn’t just for its size (75-inch), but also because it has direct LED technology in its panel, as opposed to edge LED on the rest of the 2017 Sony line-up. That means the LEDs are behind the panel, which provides better contrast and brightness, at the expense of thickness and a premium. The X90E models also have direct LED.

To compensate on the X95E and X93E (which have edge LED), Sony is touting “Slim Backlight Drive+” for more brightness, which it says brings more accurate local dimming control. From X90E upwards, the Sony 4K HDR TVs also have better systems for picture processing, and clarity, and contrast enhancement.

In terms of connectivity, you get four HDMI inputs on X82E onwards. While the X82E has two on the side and the back, X90E has three on the side and one on the back. There is one on the side and three at the bottom in the X93E, X94E, and X95E. The X70E has three in total, two on the side and one in the back.

The entire Sony X-series runs Android TV 7.0 Nougat by default, with Sony’s own interface running on top of it. The Android aspect is stressed on the remote as well, with dedicated buttons for Netflix, Google Play Store, and YouTube. All of Sony’s 2017 Android TVs are part of Netflix’s recommended programme, if that’s a checkbox for you.

UE Wonderboom Portable Speaker Launched in India: Price, Release Date, Specifications, and More

First unveiled in March, Logitech brand Ultimate Ears’ Wonderboom portable speaker was launched in India on Tuesday. It has been priced at Rs. 7,995, and will be available from Tuesday itself in the country. The palm-sized UE Wonderboom is claimed to offer 360-degree sound.

The UE Wonderboom has been launched in six colour variants in India – Grey (UE calls it Stone), Black (Phantom), Red (Fireball), Blue (SubZero), Pink (Cashmere), and a Purple shade (Lilac).

ue wonderboom colours ue

The company claims that the new UE Wonderboom can deliver up to 10 hours of non-stop music. Ultimate Ears says that the device can be fully charged in less than 3 hours. Ultimate Ears claims that the new Wonderboom speakers have been tested for drops, and can sustain drop from a height of up to five feet. The portable speaker also features a hanging loop on top that Ultimate Ears claims can be attached to a bag, bicycle, or backpack. You can control the music via speakers which will let you increase/ decrease volume as well as skip song from the speaker.

The speaker also comes with IP67 certification which means that it’s dust and water resistant, and can be immersed in up to 1 metre of liquid for up to 30 minutes. The company about the Wonderboom says, “It is also great for showers, pools, beaches, waterfalls, muddy fields and rainy days. If it gets dirty, just rinse it off.”

The UE Wonderboom speakers can be paired with up to eight other Bluetooth-enabled Wonderboom speakers, and can also connect to up to two source devices simultaneously. The speaker supports Bluetooth mobile range of up to 33 metres. The UE Wonderboom weighs in at 425 grams, and has dimensions of 102mm height, 93.5mm diameter, and 140mm width.

Speaking at the launch, Ashok Jangra, Logitech, Cluster Category Head – India & SWA, said, “Wonderboom’s basic proposition of being fuss free is designed for the user who is always-on-the-go and leads a very busy lifestyle. While it may look small, don’t be fooled by its size or price; this little beauty comes with surprisingly big sound and like its predecessors is virtually indestructible. Wonderboom is for users who are extremely passionate about music and always see it as a personal experience. We truly believe that this pint-sized, super-portable Bluetooth speaker is the answer for all personal music related needs.”

Netflix’s Interactive Shows Let You Drive the Plot

Netflix’s first attempt at interactive storytelling hit the service on Tuesday, starting with a new standalone animated episode called Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale. During the episode, viewers – kids, predictably – will be asked to make a decision about a dozen times, which will affect the story and length of the show.

For example, viewers will have the option to choose whether the bears faced by Puss in Boots will be friends or foes, and whether it should kiss a queen or just go for a simple handshake. Depending on the choices made, the new episode – Puss in Book – will last anywhere between 18 to 39 minutes, with prompts coming in every two to four minutes.

The new experiment, as Netflix is calling it, is only available on modern smart TVs, streaming media players, game consoles, and iOS devices for now. With a TV, you’ll need a remote control, while a finger tap is enough on a phone. It won’t work on the Netflix website, Android, Chromecast, and Apple TV, where the episode will play as a linear 23-minute version.

“The children’s programming space was a natural place for us to start since kids are eager to ‘play’ with their favourite characters and already inclined to tap, touch and swipe at screens,” Netflix’s director of product innovation, Carla Engelbrecht Fisher, said in a blog. “They also talk to their screens, as though the characters can hear them. Now, that conversation can be two-way.”

Netflix's Interactive Shows Let You Drive the PlotNot only does it put viewers in control of the experience, it also gives kids a reason to rewatch the same episode to find out the different storylines if they so desire. For Netflix, as always, the data will be illuminating and all-important, as to what choices surface to the top, and how popular the format is with its over 100 million members.

Of course, creating interactive storytelling is much more cumbersome and expensive on a live-action original, though Netflix hasn’t ruled it out yet. Meanwhile, the experiment will be rolled out for two more animated kids shows: Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile on July 14, and Stretch Armstrong: The Breakout next year.

Watchmen TV Show Reportedly in Development at HBO With Damon Lindelof

DC Comics’ Watchmen is in development again at HBO as a TV series, according to multiple reports. Damon Lindelof – co-creator and showrunner on Lost – is said to be in talks with the network, fresh off the completion of his critically-acclaimed drama The Leftovers.

According to unnamed sources who spoke with Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, the project is in the early stages of development, with no official deal in place as yet. Hence, both HBO and Warner Bros. Television – which holds the rights to Watchmen – have declined to comment.

If true, this is HBO’s second attempt at getting the iconic limited comic book series to its platform, after an initial attempt back in 2014. Zack Snyder, who directed the Watchmen feature film in 2009, was attached to the TV project, but isn’t a part of the new discussion. That seems obvious, given Snyder temporarily stepped away from film-making last month to focus on his family after his daughter’s suicide.

Watchmen TV Show Reportedly in Development at HBO With Damon LindelofLindelof will be starting from scratch on the revived series development, according to Variety. Though The Leftovers failed to ever get a sizeable audience on HBO, it was a hit with critics, particularly towards its end. That seems to have been enough for HBO to place its trust with Lindelof.

For those unaware, Watchmen – created by writer Alan Moore, artist Dave Gibbons, and colourist John Higgins – ran for 12 issues between 1986-87. It depicted an alternate sci-fi history where the emergence of superheroes in the 1940s helped US later win the Vietnam War, and followed a bunch of former heroes come out of retirement to investigate the murder of one of their own.

Lindelof has co-written a number of sci-fi films previously, including Star Trek into Darkness, Prometheus, Cowboys & Aliens, and Tomorrowland. For HBO, a Watchmen series – which would take at least a few years of development – would help fill the gap that Game of Thrones is soon going to create.

Google Catches Fidget Spinner Fever, Has One as an Easter Egg

We’ve officially reached peak fidget spinner, as Google has added one to the ever growing list of Easter eggs in search. The search giant has a long history of adding funny results in search, and with the latest one, you can actually bring up a virtual fidget spinner and play with it right in your search results. To bring up the Google fidget spinner, just search for the word ‘spinner’ and you’ll see the result. There are actually two different spinners – a number wheel that you can spin to randomly generate a number between one and six, simulating the results of a dice roll, or a fidget spinner. The number wheel moves slowly and delivers results quickly enough, but if the toggle is set to Google fidget spinner, it moves fast and keeps you watching for a long time.

What is a fidget spinner?

If, in all this, you’re scratching your head and wondering what we’re talking about, then here’s a quick explanation. Fidget spinners are a hugely popular type of fidget toy that has pretty much taken over huge swathes of the world by now. As we noted in an earlier article, fidget spinners are just one type of fidget toy, which also include fidget cubes, and other toys based around springs and magnets. The spinners, however, have eclipsed all the others by now, and you can find them all over the world and in India too.

In the US, fidget spinners are being sold on the streets and in souvenir shops. In India, they were the preserve of online stores just a month or two ago, but now they’re being found in supermarkets and toy stores. The question here has moved from “what is a fidget spinner”, to “where can I buy one”.

The idea is that a fidget spinner gives you something to do with your hands and helps you to otherwise focus and concentrate, and can be genuinely helpful to people with conditions such as ADHD. However, these have largely just caught on as toys, and are popular with children and adults both, looking for something new to play with.

In Germany recently customs officials in Frankfurt prevented the entry of 35 tons of fidget spinners, saying that the toys were choking hazards, and the government plans to crush these toys to destroy them.

Google fidget spinner

With the rising popularity of the fidget spinner, it was only natural that others would try and cash in on the trend. That’s why you have, for example, a number of different fidget spinner apps that promise the experience. Of course, a large part of actually playing with a fidget spinner is to give you something other than your phone to fiddle with, and there is a strong tactile element to it as well, as you feel something solid moving around in your hands, and that’s not something you can replicate on the phone.

The apps largely miss the point of why people like fidget spinners, but now, Google has gotten on board the bandwagon as well. We searched for ‘spinner’ in Google and took the fidget spinner for, well, a spin. It loads quickly and there’s a certain hypnotic quality to it, true, as the spinner turns and slows steadily, much like the real thing. There’s no sound though, and of course, it’s just an animation on your screen, so it’s the kind of thing that you might want to spin once or twice, but after that the gag loses a fair amount of charm.

Still, if you are obsessed with fidget spinners but your boss won’t let you carry one to office, or your teacher won’t allow them in class… this could tide you over.
