Acer unveils Chromebook Spin 513 powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c chip

Acer has launched its first laptop powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c platform – the Acer Chromebook Spin 513. The device has a 2-in-1 convertible form factor, thanks to its 360-degree hinge which allows it to be used as a conventional laptop, touchscreen tablet, or in tent mode for media consumption. The Acer offering is made out of aluminum and weighs just 1.2kg, while the display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass. 

Talking about the internals, the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 features a 13.3-inch FHD display with slim bezels, translating to a screen-to-body ratio of 78%. As mentioned above, the device is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7c SoC that uses the custom Kryo 468 CPU and was introduced late last year. The Qualcomm silicon is paired with up to 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. Acer touts a battery life of 14 hours for its latest Chrome OS machine. 

4G support, octa-core SoC and $399.99 starting price

Connectivity is handled by Bluetooth 5.0, optional 4G LTE, and Wi-Fi 802.11ac with 2×2 MIMO technology. The port selection on Acer Chromebook Spin 513 is rounded off by a pair of USB Type-C ports (Gen 3.2), a USB 3.2 Type-A port, and a DisplayPort with USB Type-C interface. There are two built-in microphones on the machine for a better video call experience. 

The Acer Chromebook Spin 513 starts at $399.99 and will be up for grabs starting February next year, while buyers in the EMEA market will get it priced at €429 with a January 2021 release schedule.

Porsche Design Acer Book RS is decked out in luxury and starts at ‘just’ $1,399.99

Porsche makes expensive sports cars, and once in a while, collaborates with consumer technology brands to launch limited edition gadgets too. Take for example HUAWEI, which has been selling uber-expensive Porsche Edition smartphones for the past few years.
Now, it’s Acer’s time to adds some Porsche oomph to its computing lineup. As part of its Next At Acer conference, the company has launched the Porsche Design Acer Book RS. As the name suggests, the device exudes luxury and also has a handsome starting price of ‘just’ $1,399.99.

Metallic chassis, carbon fiber cover and Porsche Design engraving!

Talking about the build, Porsche Design Acer Book RS has a CNC-machined chassis with a carbon fiber cover on the lid, which actually looks stunning.

Acer will also sell a premium bundle that costs a cool $1,999.99 and includes the laptop as well as the aforementioned accessories.

But the Porsche Design Acer Book RS is not just eye-candy. Acer has packed the laptop with Intel’s 11th Gen Core i7 processor that ticks alongside NVIDIA’s GeForce MX350 GPU and 16 gigs of RAM. And since this is an 11th Gen Intel Core processor, you will also find Intel’s own Xe graphics inside it. The latest Acer offering packs a 14-inch FHD display with narrow bezels and a layer of Antimicrobial Corning Gorilla Glass on top. The battery is claimed to last 17 hours on a single charge, while thermals are handled by dual copper heat pipes. 

The Porsche Design Acer Book RS also comes with Intel Evo certification, which means it provides a long battery life, supports fast charging (4 hours of play time with 30 minutes of charge), Thunderbolt 4, WiFi 6, and wake time of 1 second or less. There is also a fingerprint sensor for authentication. Aside from the US market, the luxurious Acer offering will be up for grabs in EMEA (for €2,399) and China (for ¥19,999) as well.

Acer launches Spin 7 convertible powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G chip

Acer has made a plethora of announcements at IFA 2020, such as the debut of its Spin 5 and Spin 7 laptops powered by Intel’s new 11th Gen Tiger Lake processors as well as the arrival of NVIDIA’s fresh-out-of-oven GeForce RTX 30 series graphics across its Orion and  Predator desktop lineup. But Acer also has another notable product up its sleeves – the Spin 7 laptop powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 5G compute platform. Acer says the new Spin 7 is the world’s first laptop to come equipped with Qualcomm’s new silicon targeted at always-connected thin and light laptops. 

While the second-gen Snapdragon 8cx compute platform brings its own set of performance upgrades, the most notable one is support for both mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G bands. The new Acer offering offers a 14-inch full-HD touch-sensitive display that covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut, packed inside a 360-degree convertible form factor. The laptop’s screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and it also ships with a dockable Wacom AES 1.0 pen that can recognize 4,096 levels of pressure. 

Acer says the Spin 7 is made out of magnesium-aluminum, which also helps it achieve a weight of just 1.4kg while also being impressively thin at just 15.9mm. The company is touting a multi-day battery life for the Spin 7, but hasn’t given a specific endurance figure yet. However, given it uses a less-power hungry Qualcomm chip, the battery life is going to be significantly better than Intel-powered machines.

There is also a fingerprint sensor for Windows Hello login. Notably, Acer claims that the Spin 7’s keyboard deck, touchpad and the surrounding surface is coated with a silver-ion antimicrobial agent that offers “high microbial reduction rate against a broad range of bacteria.” Unfortunately, Acer is yet to reveal the pricing or availability details of its new laptop.

It’s official! OnePlus will no longer make McLaren Edition smartphones

Earlier this month we covered how OnePlus’ name wasn’t on McLaren’s list of collaborators anymore. Now, a McLaren spokesperson just went on record and officially stated that their partnership has come to an end. According to him, it came to their scheduled conclusion and that OnePlus has been supportive and that they wish to see them in the future. We got two phones out of their partnership and we don’t know how they’ll handle the Concept One if it ever comes out, since yes, that was a McLaren phone.

Sony schedules a PlayStation 5 game reveal event on June 5

And listen, if there’s a time for gaming consoles, it’s now, as we need to stay at home, and it seems Sony is willing to bank on it. The company just announced that they’ll be hosting an event on June 4th for the PlayStation 5. Sony is promising to showcase ‘the future of gaming’ at this event which typically means that we’ll be seeing some games for the upcoming console. We haven’t gotten any other details from Sony but a recent report claims that they might show a total of 38 games including a bunch of exclusives. The event will be live on YouTube and Twitch and we hope to get to see some hardware as well. Let’s also hope that hardware is not crazy expensive, as that would be unrealistic in today’s economy.

Apple needs an urgent supply of LCD panels from LG Display

It looks like the pandemic is affecting Apple in sales but not in the conventional way. Cupertino originally cut orders for their products in Q2 to anticipate the pandemic. What they didn’t anticipate is that due to the transition to e-learning, iPad stocks in China have been down since March because most parents have bought one for their kids to attend school from home. This would be good for Apple if they wouldn’t have cut orders before, and now they’re urgently asking LG for LCD panels to meet their iPad demands. The problem is, these requests usually come three months in advance to give room for LG to prepare. Apple has other providers for the iPad displays like BOE and Sharp, but LG might want to answer this because of their deal to supply displays for the iPhone 12 Max. Clearly this is a good problem to have right now.

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20+ cameras leaked?

According to this new leak, the Galaxy Note 20 will fix some of the focusing issues we had with the S20 Ultra from a hardware perspective. The leak gives us both of the camera arrays, the regular Note 20 will apparently bring a 12MP main sensor, a 64MP telephoto, and a 12MP Ultra Wide. On the other side, the Note 20+ will bring the 108MP main sensor, a 12MP telephoto, a 12MP ultra wide and laser autofocus. The laser autofocus would help the main sensor to lock into subjects and while the 12MP telephoto doesn’t sound as impressive in paper as the S20 Ultras 48MP, the 12MP telephoto might help out during pixel binning as the Ultra does create 12MP images after all. It looks like the camera won’t be that different from the S20’s, let’s just hope they refine it. Now if only they included the return of variable aperture. A sensor this large needs it.

Story of the day:

Pixel 4a XL leaks show what the phone looked like before it was canceled

And finally the most interesting news today have to do with the Google Pixel 4a XL. I know, that one that apparently won’t get to ever be. Most of the leaks have hinted that there won’t be a 4a XL variant this year but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t in development. We have some leaked images from 9to5Google of Pixel 4a cases where we see the familiar design. It has the orange Power button, the hole for the fingerprint scanner at the back and the 3.5mm headphone jack. However, the camera cutout shows too lenses here and we’re only expecting a single shooter for the 4a. We also have some CAD renders of the phone which show the dual lens camera and the punch hole at the front. Why dual cameras on this phone and not on the small variant is a good question, but even more important, why do you think Google cancelled this phone?

Samsung Money by Sofi will come to the US later this summer

Samsung just launched a new mobile money management system which pretty much competes with the Apple Card. It’s called Samsung Money by SoFi but unlike the Apple Card, it isn’t really a credit card. It’s actually more of a bank account or credit union where you get a MasterCard debit card that doesn’t show any of your information and it works with the Samsung Pay app. Your Samsung Money account will be FDIC insured for $1.5M and users benefit from Samsung’s “defense-grade” security from Samsung Knox. It’ll be available later this summer exclusively for US customers who own a Galaxy smartphone, Samsung promises a secure experience with no account fees.

The iPhone 11 is now the most popular smartphone in the world

We got some quarter results from Omdia and it just confirms that Apple made a big dent on the market with the iPhone 11. Last year the iPhone XR was the number 1 smartphone for Q1 with 13.6M units shipped, but this year the iPhone 11 surpassed it with 19.5M units, despite the pandemic. The phone that follows is the Samsung Galaxy A51 which sold 6.8M units and the iPhone XR is still in the top 5 with 4.7M units. Omdia still anticipates however, that smartphone sales will be down for the rest of the year due to the pandemic so numbers might change for Q2.

Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 could be launched in August, as it reportedly enters mass production

There’s been several rumors that we’ll finally be getting the Galaxy Fold’s successor with the Note 20 this year. Now we got a new report from a South Korean publication that claims that the Fold 2 has just entered mass production. This means we could start getting some official details as early as June. According to the Insiders, the Fold 2 will bring Samsung’s Ultra Thin Glass and it will cost less, despite upgrading to a 120Hz display. Recently we got some patents from Samsung which described how Samsung plans to make Foldables water resistant but it’s not clear if the Fold 2 will bring this feature. The company is expecting to sell 2.5-3M units this year, surpassing the original Fold.

Story of the day:

We may have to wait until November for the iPhone 12 series

It looks like we will have to wait for the iPhone 12 line-up after all this year. According to a new report, this year’s iPhones might be launched until November due to the pandemic. The report also predicts that Apple has 35M units in production for Q2 of 2020 which is 13% lower than what they had last year, but giving the time, we’re not sure if they’re talking about iPhone 12 production, which would be kind of early, or iPhone 11 production which is likely to take a dip. Regardless, we’re expecting 4 different iPhones, all 4 with OLED displays, 5G connectivity, a smaller notch and a boxier design which is reminiscent of the iPhone 4. We’re also hearing of different spec bumps like up to 6GB of RAM in the Pro models and the base storage at 128GB.
