Las ventas del Galaxy S9 están por debajo de la parte superior: proxy

Las ventas de S9 en el segundo trimestre fueron más bajas que en el primer trimestre, según The Bell, lo que no sucedió en la historia de la línea de productos Galaxy S.

Según el informe de The Bell, las ventas del Galaxy S9 son las más bajas en el segundo trimestre de este año.

Según el informe, 9 millones de unidades del S9 se distribuyeron en el segundo trimestre, menos que los 10 millones de unidades desplegadas en el trimestre anterior. Bell, una empresa asiática de medios de confianza, dijo que las ventas del segundo trimestre del Galaxy S fueron más bajas que las del primer trimestre.

Las ventas de medio año del Galaxy S9 también son peores que las de la generación anterior, 2017. El Galaxy S9 vendió 19.2 millones de unidades en los seis meses, mientras que el Galaxy S8 vendió 21.2 millones de unidades en la primera mitad del año pasado. Según The Bell's.

Cuando las ventas caen, Samsung Electronics anuncia un nuevo plan para fomentar las ventas de teléfonos celulares, mientras que al mismo tiempo le gana a sus competidores, principalmente a Apple. Según The Bell, se esperaba que la fecha de lanzamiento y lanzamiento de Galaxy Note 9 se anunciara a principios de agosto, y la fecha de lanzamiento es la misma que en la Nota 8, que se vendió a mediados de septiembre.

Apple planea lanzar tres teléfonos en septiembre de este año. El lanzamiento del Galaxy Note 9 es persuadir a los compradores de que esperen nuevos iPhones e intenten aumentar las ventas de teléfonos de marca con nuevas características como S Pen, una cámara de apertura variable con conectividad Bluetooth y nuevas características.

Ante el mercado cambiante de teléfonos móviles, Samsung también está estudiando otras estrategias, como la integración del Galaxy S Plus con la línea Galaxy Note. La diferencia entre las dos generaciones es que no es diferente continuar enviando dos teléfonos cada año.

Nokia 8110 4G : une mise à jour apporte WhatsApp

Les feature phones n’ont pas la réputation d’être des mobiles sujets aux mises à jour. Et pourtant, ils le deviennent de plus en plus. À l’image du nouveau Nokia 8110 qui vient juste d’en recevoir une. Elle intègre WhatsApp à son interface

Avant les smartphones, un téléphone mobile servait essentiellement à communiquer. Grâce à des systèmes d’exploitation comme Windows Mobile ou Symbian, ils ont été capables de se connecter à Internet et de recevoir des applications supplémentaires pour enrichir l’usage. Puis, les iOS et Android sont arrivés. Et avec eux l’avènement des boutiques applicatives qui représentent l’essentiel de la personnalisation de l’expérience de chaque utilisateur. Les feature phones, eux, sont longtemps restés à la traine sur ce sujet, car ils sont seulement considérés comme des téléphones. Et rien d’autre.

Mise à jour du Banana Phone !

KaiOS, une initiative supportée (financièrement et technologiquement) par Google, tente de redonner ses lettres de noblesse à ce segment de marché toujours très important, notamment dans les pays émergents où le feature phone offre une certaine accessibilité à la téléphonie et aux usages qui en découlent. KaiOS est un système d’exploitation que nous avons déjà évoqué dans nos colonnes. L’un des téléphones fonctionnant avec cet OS et disponibles en France est le Nokia 8110 4G, la réédition du célèbre « Banana Phone ».

Prouvant qu’un feature phone peut évoluer, le Nokia 8110 4G vient de recevoir une mise à jour de KaiOS. Une mise à jour accessible depuis le « KaiStore » intégré à son interface et qui, une fois installée, permet à l’utilisateur de découvrir une nouvelle application : WhatsApp. La messagerie instantanée rejoint donc KaiOS, comme ce fut le cas précédemment pour son application « sœur », Facebook. Il y a donc une certaine logique.

Un feature phone qui la joue smart

Disponible en France depuis la rentrée 2018, le Nokia 8110 est le second modèle « revival vintage » de HMD Global, après le 3310. Intégrant un écran couleur de 2,4 pouces, il fonctionne avec un Snapdragon 205 de Qualcomm, 512 Mo de mémoire vive, 2 Go de stockage (extensibles par microSDXC), une batterie de 1500 mAh, un capteur photo de 2 mégapixels et une connectivité qui inclut la 4G. Il est vendu, pour rappel, 89 euros (prix public conseillé).

KaiOS n’est pas un système d’exploitation aussi facile à mettre à jour qu’iOS et Android. Pour preuve, la nouvelle interface de KaiOS, officialisée en avril, ne sera pas poussée sur les anciens terminaux. Ce n’est pas non plus un système d’exploitation qui facilite l’ajout de nouvelles fonctionnalités, malgré une boutique applicative présente dans l’appareil. Et ce n’est pas un système assez populaire pour offrir une large gamme d’applications supplémentaires. C’est cependant, selon nous, le chaînon manquant entre les OS dits modernes et la téléphonie des années 2000.

Anker PowerPort PD 2 GaN 60W charger with two USB-C ports unveiled for $55

Anker is preparing to launch a new charger following on from the recent launch of its first gallium nitride (GaN) charger the 30W PowerPort Atom PD 1 earlier this year. The second PowerPort PD 2 charger is expected to be available from April 29th, 2019 onwards priced at $55 and offers 60W of charging power and is equipped with two USB-C ports and improved design.

Following a similar design to the original Atom PD 1, the new PD 2 charger supports the USB-C PD (Power Delivery) standard, enabling it to charge nearly any USB-C device at full speed for anything up to a rating of 60W. If you are in the need for more power in the form of 100W or 80W power supplies you will need to find a different device and the Atom PD 2 can only supply the full 60W to one device. When multiple devices are plugged in Anker has designed the charger to intelligently manage the power based on the demand from the connected devices.

Apple AirPods 3 may launch before the end of the year

Apple launched their new AirPods 2 last month and now according to a recent report the Apple AirPods 3 may launch before the end of 2019.

According to respected Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo, Apple are working on two new versions of their AirPods, one will launch before the end of 2019 and the other in early 2020.

We expect Apple will likely launch two new AirPods models in 4Q19 at the earliest. One is the all-new form factor design at a higher price. The other’s outlook and price will be the same as the current model’s. A common internal design factor of these two new AirPods will be to abandon the current “SMT+RFPCB” design and change to adopt the SiP design instead for improving assembly yield rates, saving internal space and reducing cost.

One of these new AirPods is said to come with a new design, we suspect this will be the 2020 model, it is not clear as yet on what new features the Apple AirPods 3 will come with.
