Video gets up close and personal with Apple’s new 2018 iPhone design

just when we thought we already knew everything there was to know about Apple’s next-generation iPhone lineup, a big leak last week uncovered some new details. Specifically, the leak revealed that Apple’s best iPhone models ever will have Apple’s worst name ever: iPhone XS. That’s right, the name of Apple’s new iPhone models will use two Latin characters in succession, but one is a Roman numeral and the other is a letter from the English alphabet. All of a sudden horrible names like “HomePod” and “AirPower” seem brilliant by comparison, but that’s neither here nor there. The important thing is that Apple actually leaked an official press render of its new 5.8-inch iPhone XS and 6.5-inch iPhone XS, which was previously referred to as the “iPhone X Plus,” so the phones’ design is now confirmed. We also know that Apple’s next-generation iPhone XS models will be made available in a new gold color that is sure to be popular this year.

In addition to the iPhone XS leaks, we also got our first glimpse of the new Apple Watch Series 4, which is set to be the biggest redesign we’ve seen so far. In fact, it’s even more exciting than Apple’s new iPhones. There was one thing that was noticeably absent from last week’s leaks, however — the third new iPhone model set to debut next week, which people have been referring to as the “iPhone 9.” Since it was nowhere to be found following Apple’s accidental leak, hopefully this new video will help fill the void.

Apple’s new 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhone XS will be the most talked-about new iPhone models this fall following their late-summer launch. They take everything that’s great about the iPhone X and make it even better, with a faster and more efficient processor, better battery life, and an even bigger OLED display on the 6.5-inch iPhone XS model. But they’ll also feature the exact same design as the iPhone X and they’ll be quite expensive. Pricing is expected to start at $899 for the 5.8-inch model with 64GB of storage and goes all the way up to $1,149 for the top-of-the-line 6.5-inch iPhone XS.

Apple fans looking for a similar experience with a new design that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg will have an exciting new option this year. The new “iPhone 9” will feature a 6.1-inch OLED display with a similar “all-screen” design and Face ID. This model will have less RAM and it will also lack 3D Touch support, but the rest of the key specs should be the same and it could start as low as $699. A $700 iPhone with performance that’s almost on par with a $1,150 iPhone would be quite appealing indeed, which is why we’re so intrigued by the upcoming iPhone 9.

It wasn’t included in last weeks leaks, as we mentioned, but graphic designer Gunho Lee mocked it up based on all the leaks we’ve seen so far. The colors he used might be a bit ambitious, but the design is otherwise expected to be a pretty spot-on representation of the third new iPhone model Apple is expected to unveil next week at its iPhone event on September 12th. Now, for the bad news: While the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhone XS are expected to go on sale the following Friday, September 21st, the iPhone 9 might not hit store shelves until sometime next month.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Now on Sale in India, New Alexa Voice Remote Also Available

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K has now been available in India. The new Fire TV Stick model that was launched in the country last month comes with a price tag of Rs. 5,999. Amazon.in is offering EMI options starting from Rs. 282. As an upgrade over the original Fire TV Stick, the Fire TV Stick 4K is designed to deliver high-quality, 4K content and supports Dolby Vision and HDR10+ technologies. There is also an all-new Alexa Voice Remote that supports voice commands as well as functions as a remote controller of your TV. Customers with the existing Fire TV Stick can also avail the controlling support by purchasing the new Alexa Voice Remote.

The Fire TV Stick 4K is available for purchase in India through Amazon.in. Customers can also opt for a two-year OneAssist Protection Plan at Rs. 499. Additionally, the new Alexa Voice Remote is available separately for existing Fire TV Stick users at Rs. 1,999.

Amazon claims that the Fire TV Stick 4K is over 80 percent more powerful than last year’s Fire TV Stick. It is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz and is touted to be the “first media stick available with Dolby Vision” support. Further, there is support for 4K Ultra HD, Dolby Atmos, HDR, HDR-10, HLG, and HDR10+ content. Users can also use the Alexa integration by pressing the voice command button on the bundled remote to watch their 4K content using their voice. There is also 8GB of onboard storage as well as Bluetooth 5.0+ LE and dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi that supports 802.11ac networks. For connectivity, the Fire TV Stick 4K has an HDMI output and supports power via Micro-USB.

The bundled Alexa Voice Remote combines Bluetooth and multidirectional infrared technology alongside using a proprietary cloud-based service from Amazon to enable controlling of your TV set as well as the Fire TV Stick simultaneously – without requiring the use of the native remote controller of your TV. There are dedicated power, volume, and mute buttons to control your TV, soundbar, or other AV equipment. Also, the Alexa Voice Remote has a voice button and other Fire TV Stick controls. Users with the previous-generation Fire TV Stick can also use the new Alexa Voice Remote to avail its ability to control TV sets. Amazon is additionally bringing Alexa integration to the existing Fire TV Stick via a software update.

Similar to the previous Fire TV Stick, the Fire TV Stick 4K supports content from services such as Amazon Prime Video, Hotstar, Netflix, Zee5, and SonyLIV among others. It also has Firefox and Silk browsers to let you surf the Web or access YouTube and Facebook. Furthermore, you can listen to your favourite music by accessing Amazon Prime Music, Gaana, and TuneIn. It is worth mentioning here that while the Fire TV Stick 4K supports 4K UHD content delivery, your TV set needs to have 4K support in order to enable the high-quality experience.

You can also use new Alexa skills on the Fire TV Stick 4K to view live camera feeds, check sports scores, order food, book a cab, or stream songs using your voice. Likewise, you can pair your Echo devices with your Fire TV to control your TV and ask Alexa to play and search for your favourite content, access new apps, or control the playback on your Fire TV – all without using the bundled remote.

With the latest arrival, the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K becomes one of the cheapest native 4K players in India. The Apple TV 4K is already available in India as a 4K player. However, it is not as affordable as the Fire TV Stick 4K, with a starting price of Rs. 17,430 for the 32GB storage variant, and Rs. 19,480 for the 64GB variant.

Thunderlord and Heavy Machine Guns are Back in Destiny 2

Bungie revealed today that Thunderlord, the fan-favorite Heavy Machine Gun exotic from Destiny 1, has made its way into Destiny 2. Not only is that pretty exciting news, more importantly, it triggers the official return of Heavy Machine Guns into Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 did away with HMGs when launching Destiny 2 over a year ago. They were pretty overpowered in the Crucible, but lacked punch in most PvE situations. Rather then try and fix its problems in both major areas, it seemed like Bungie decided to just get rid of them all together.

However the first of the annual pass content. Black Armory, coming out later this year will usher in the return of the lost power weapon class, and Thunderlord is your sneak preview of that.

The Thunderlord can only be obtained by completing the Lost Cryptarch event which launched around Halloween. Talk to Amanda Holiday in the Shipyard if you haven’t started it up yet.

You have a few weeks to complete the quest in order to guarantee yourself one if you stick with it. If you end up skipping the quest when the event ends on Nov. 27, you’ll still be able to get Thunderlord via normal means. Also known as praying to the RNG gods. So you know what that means: go do that quest.

Ed has been a proud member of the Twinfinite staff since 2014. He plays everything on everything but is particularly fond of JRPGs, MMOs, and sports. He holds a B.A. in history and political science and a M.S. in education all from the University at Albany.

We know, you miss your headphone jack.

Like other smartphones, the Essential Phone has done away with the feature, but the company has just launched its long-touted external headphone adapter and DAC, which magnetically snaps on to the back of your phone.

And it ain’t cheap: The Audio Adapter HD will set you back an eye-watering $149.

To be fair, Essential’s adapter doesn’t claim to be like the other plasticky dongles, which are a fraction of the price.

Essential claims its titanium adapter “sports an audiophile-grade amp that can drive audiophile-grade headphones” thus providing “studio quality audio performance.” 

At the time of writing, the accessory has sold out, with stock to be replenished next week. It’s a different outcome to Essential’s first phone, the PH-1, which sold poorly following delays.

Still, Essential is reportedly working on a new phone which will be controlled entirely by your voice, which it is looking to unveil next year at CES.
