Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.
This morning, we're mulling over the real problem with mobile gaming and taking a seat behind the wheel of a Huracán for some computer-aided drifting. Also, Anthem got a big update, and Samsung's mid-range phone has some impressive specs.
At Lamborghini, they've taken things further with their new Lamborghini Dinamica Veicolo Integrata or LDVI system. The Engine Control Unit (ECU) takes data from the entire car and uses it to adjust how the new Huracán EVO Spyder drives in nearly real time. That control allows a driver to do something that typically takes months if not years to master: drifting.
The biggest A-series phone ever is here, and it has a pretty impressive camera setup, too. The Galaxy A70 packs a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED 20:9 1,080 x 2,400 display with an Infinity-U notch. That houses the 32-megapixel, f/2.0 selfie camera that beats the main camera on many other phones (around back there's another 32 MP camera along with an ultrawide lens and a depth sensor). With a large 4,500 mAh battery, the Galaxy A70 supports 25W fast charging just like the Galaxy S10 5G. As for other specs, it packs an 8-core processor, 6GB or 8GB of RAM (depending on the options and region) and 128GB of internal storage on top of a microSD slot.
With the P30 and P30 Pro, Huawei continues its unique tradition by serving up a four-camera setup with an intriguing new sensor that promises vastly improved performance in low light. There's also an in-screen speaker, a 32 MP selfie camera tucked in the notch and an in-display optical fingerprint scanner, but Cherlynn Low's first experience is mostly about all of those lenses.
As mentioned in Apple's presentation, News+ is (unsurprisingly) an extension of the existing News app and not an app of its own. Still, Nicole Lee was impressed by its semi-curated experience and said that, at $10, it's practically a bargain for all of the content offered.
The computer maker has released a new version of its Live Update software for laptops, which addresses the ShadowHammer backdoor attack. ASUS also promised "multiple security verification mechanisms" to reduce the chances of further attacks and started using an "enhanced end-to-end encryption mechanism."
