Snapdragon 835 Chipset Which will Power 2017 High End Phones

Snapdragon 835
Qualcomm was expected to launch its Snapdragon 835 chipset with a grand ceremony during CES 2017 but most of its prolific information was revealed before that. Snapdragon 835 is its latest powerful chipset which is expected to power some of the most expensive and premium flagship devices in the rest of the year. Its information has been revealed in full by the famous leaker who goes by the name @evleaks. The documents procured by this leakster appear to be the official press release documents which bring key details about this chipset.

Snapdragon 835 rumors and leaks are abundant

A number of information related to the Sanpdragon 835 chipset has already been released in the online arena. Some of the presentation slide made its way on the Chinese social network Weibo. Quite contrary to the established trend these rumors and information were true to its core which has simply killed away the surprise that Snapdragon would have brought in CES launch event.

How Snapdragon promotes its upcoming chipset?

Snapdragon has boldly proclaimed that 835 which be much smarter, smaller and energy efficient than any of the chipset ever developed by the company. Qualcomm has invested a huge of money and resource at developing this chipset which will allow smartphone manufacturers to go further with their plans of developing thinner devices with larger batteries in future. Snapdragon 835 has a 10nm design with the presence of over 3 billion transistors which lends better functionality and power over its predecessors.

Qualcomm documents reveal that the improvements made in Sanpdragon 835 will help in redefining the charging, camera capabilities, connectivity, security and battery life on the upcoming range of smartphones.
Snapdragon 385 will bring better connectivity coupled with security

Snapdragon 835 features the X16 LTE modem and custom support for 802.11ad Wi-Fi networks which helps in delivering one of the fastest and robust connectivity options to the consumers. This will allow users to download content at 10X faster than the first generation of 4G LTE devices and modem itself will have a 45% smaller footprint and with incredible power efficiency. On security front it will have three layers of protection to the users on Soc, device and system levels. Snapdragon 835 will authenticate users with fingerprints, pin codes, eye or face based security. This will ensure that upcoming breed of smartphone will feature the iris scanners and camera enabled security more prominently than before.

Redefining smartphone experience in every possible manner

Qualcomm is leaving no stone upturned to make Snapdragon 835 chipset successful than its predecessors. It will also feature the coveted machine learning which will enhance the computing capability of the phones in future. Smartphones will start offering object recognition technology for better photos and VR experience will be also enhanced with real-time hand tracking capabilities.

Znaps – A Simple Designed Solution in Charging Phone


If one has ever had the opportunity of using the MacBook’s MagSafe connector or the Apple Watch’s magnetic charging cable, they would get to know how convenient a magnetic power connector could be when compared to the iPhone’s charging system.

A Toronto based company known as Znaps has come up with a way out that brings about convenience to both the iPhone as well as Android phones with a Kickstarter campaign that is in progress of turning the smartphone’s charging port as well as cable into a magnetic charger. It seems similar to Apple’s MagSafe power connector that enables the user to plug and unplug easily, the power connector to a laptop with satisfying magnetic snap.

Moreover, it can also detach if and when someone tends to trips on the power cord. Znaps is a simple designed solution which tends to transform a charging cable utilising a pair of easy adapters which plugs into the Lightning or microUSB port towards the bottom of the mobile device and to the end of the cable. As the two adapter are in place, one can `snap and charge’ or snap or sync, without even looking.Znaps seems to bring about an enhancement to the iPhone and Android devices though consumers would need to wait for some time before it is made available to the customers.

Znaps Connector Compatible with Lightning/MicroSD Ports

Founders of Znaps had turned to Kickstarter in order to raise funds for the purpose of support in putting the adapter into production. The campaign being barely a quarter of the way through with only 24 days remaining where Znaps has already collected $437,295 out of its $94,221 goal which is 464% of Znaps’ goal.

The Znaps connector is said to be compatible with Lightning and microSD ports and is also reversible. This means that one will not have the need to fiddle with it in order to fit it in the right position since the Znaps, which is a tiny magnetic adapter adapts into the device’s charging port – Lightning for iOS devices, MicroUSB for Android, together with a separate magnetic adapter that fits over the cable connector.

Thus the user could just place the phone’s charging port close to the charging cable and it snaps in with the power of the magnet. It can get disconnected without much damage if it is pulled on the phone while it is still being charged.

Water Resistant – Power to Protect Sensitive Area – Power Socket

Besides this the Znaps is water resistant having the power of protecting the most sensitive areas on the phone which is the power socket wherein the adapter tends to lower the risk of any water damage to the phone. The Znaps magnetic adapter comes at a cost of $9 and wheninserted in the iPhone 6 or any other iOS or an Android device, it helps in charging the device instantly.

Due to the magnets in the adapter and cable, one can charge the mobile device by bringing it near the cable that tends to snap into the right position. The shipping of Znaps would probably begin somewhere in November and those interested in MagSafe type of charging technology for their iPhone or Android phone could pre-order the Znaps adapter or they could fund the Kickstarter campaign, opt for a custom pledge and get hold of their Znaps adapter by the end of November of in December.

A New Quantum Particle Calculation Making Waves in Scientific Field

Quantum Particle
Researcher had successfully developed a new and more advanced way of measuring the wave functions, which describe the strange behaviour of subatomic particles. With this breakthrough development the quantum computing, secure wireless communications and quantum teleportation would come closer to reality than it was ever before.

A New Beginning

There is a small realm of scientific field, whichis known as quantum mechanics. It states that the particles can exist in multiple places at once through an unusual phenomenon called superposition. And in order to describe the huge number of positions and velocities which a particle can have at any given moment is measured through the use of wave functions.

Both the quantum computing and teleportation relies on particles, which can exist in multiple places at once.

Benefit of this Remarkable Research At a Glance

Wondering how this could be utilised in advancing the computing powers of the machines? Well the superposition of the particles would allow the computers in performing calculations and transferring information at a much faster rate than the conventional computers.

How This Could Be Achieved

Quantum computing and quantum teleportation would need huge systems with a large amount of quantum particles with the ability to interact to create many dimensions. When this is achieved in the proper order and in efficient manner then only both of it could turn into reality.

A lead researcher on this finding also stated that the huge multidimensional systems have complicated wave functions, which cannot be measured earlier due to inefficient traditional methods. But with the new method it is highly possible to calculate wave functions more accurately and faster and it will be beneficial for scientists in developing quantum technology for new generation.

How the Wave Functions are Calculated?

Earlier the wave function of a quantum system was calculated by taking a huge number of measurements and then estimating a function or an equation, which was best, suited for all the measurements. This old technique was called ‘direct measurement’, which used to measure the wave function by weakly measuring position and strongly measuring the momentum. This technique was suited only for the small systems with few dimensions but as with the advancement, the system grew bigger and bigger it became more and more difficult to accurately measure the wave functions.

Therefore, this new technique is developed called ‘compressed direct measurement’, which uses a series of random measurements of the position and momentum of the particles in their quantum state. Then an algorithm is assigned which finds the wave function, which is best, suited for a number of measurements. This new technique is about 350 times faster and just requires 20 percent of the measurements than the old one.

The Era of Quantum Tech

Researchers have asserted that the new direct measurement technique can mould the way of success for quantum computing. The regular computers handle ‘bits’ of information while a quantum computer could ‘qubits’ of information, which could be represented by either zero or one at the same time. Compressed direct measurement can help in reaching terahertz speed, which will give incredible speed in transferring data in the form T-rays. These waves have the ability to pass through most materials like paper, clothing etc. However, it should also be noted that these waves are difficult to detect and manipulate, therefore scientists would find difficulty in harnessing them into digital media. Furthermore, quantum is still a new idea in technology as well as an emerging field it will take time before becoming reality.

Forget Plastic Bottles, Drink Water In A Bubble

Plastic invades our lives and pollute our planet. To curb this problem, a team of technology designers has developed a new way to drink water without using water bottles. Instead of using water bottles they used a very novel method.

The plastic bottle is removed and replaces it with a water bubble surrounded by ultra- thin edible membrane. How to do without plastic in our lives? This is a million dollar question and the scientists are working on it to find a solution. A team of three London based Designers have found a solution by completely reinventing the concept of the water bottle.

The three friends have created a new form and a new way of drinking water. Either drink it or eat it. The new idea is christened with a name Ooho. For this, they are using simple cooking methods such as molecular cooking and other processes such as spherification, a technique that consists in giving any food in the form of a sphere by freezing.

Here, water is surrounded by a thin membrane composed of edible brown algae and calcium chloride. Rodrigo García González detailed that the water is surrounded by double membrane and that double membrane provides hygienic protection within the membrane, and the manufacturer can put labels between the two layers without using any adhesive.

While the protective membrane is formed, the water is placed in a frozen state to give the spherical shape. Then simply apply the substance created it form the membrane.

The idea is to have an environmentally friendly alternative to bottled water which is both easy to handle (just buy the ingredients and equipment) and it is cheap because the cost is less than € 5, According to the designers. The idea behind Ooho is really interesting: replace water bottles by an edible bubble is really innovative!
