Hi tech news 2021, hardware & software
Well, on this page you will find the most interesting Hi tech news about various technologies and software.
Web Instagram is heavily restricted by the service’s mobile app for smartphones. It doesn’t even allow you to post new messages from the web browser. However, it looks like there may be a breakthrough in this aspect. Instagram is already working on this functionality.
- Yes, web Instagram is heavily restricted to the mobile app. However, just exchanging new messages through a web browser may soon appear.
The developers of the service are already working on this, which was done by the Italian developer Alessandro Paluzzi.
In the screenshots attached by Paluzzi, you can even see what this process should look like. This way, you can attach photos or videos to the message, and you can also do this by uploading them in a special window. It is not yet known when Instagram will add such an option to the web version.
Hi tech news – Huawei is preparing a new model of a smart display with 4K support
In the network there was information suggesting that in the near future Huawei will introduce the next generation of smart display Smart Screen. The device is expected to have support for 4K resolution, and will also offer touch support.
- The latest generation of smart display with TV function – Huawei Smart Screen S-appeared on the market in December last year. More recently, information appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo, indicating the imminent launch of a new Smart Screen from Huawei.
Thanks to a screenshot of the technical characteristics of this device, we can learn that the new equipment will offer support for content in 4K resolution, and will also be equipped with a special filter to reduce the emission of harmful blue light.
An interesting feature is the support for up to 20 touch points at the same time – this will allow you to conveniently view multimedia presentations or use this display in schools. Hi tech news: according to unofficial information, the debut of the new device from Huawei will take place on March 25.
An unusual device for producing cheap energy
The new device makes it possible to produce fuel using only sunlight and water. Thanks to the use of catalytic electrodes & perovskite solar cells in one device, the invention has a performance of 6.7 percent.
It may be too early to think about turning our cars into emission free hydrogen cars, but the researchers hope the new technology can be scaled up relatively easily.
- The concept is basically like an artificial leaf. It is an integrated module that converts sunlight into an electric current that drives the electrochemical reaction. It uses water and sunlight to produce chemical fuels, ” said June Lu of Rice University in Texas.
Perovskite solar cells are one of the most promising materials of the future. When used correctly, they give better results compared to silicon panels and are cheap to manufacture.
The key to the device’s success is the encapsulation method it used. The researchers decided to add a layer of polymer around the perovskite, protecting it from damage when submerged in water. The polymer also passes sunlight & forms an insulator between the cell & the electrodes.
“Thanks to the intelligent design of the system, you can create a self-contained loop. Even when there is no sunlight, you can use the stored energy in the form of chemical fuel. You can put the hydrogen and oxygen products in separate tanks and include another module in them, like a fuel cell, to turn them back into electricity, ” Lu said.
Hi tech news – Nokia 1.4 is officially introduced, parameters
HMD Global has just officially unveiled Nokia’s newest budget phone, which is the Nokia 1.4. The hardware is still very cheap, but slightly improved over previous generations.
The Nokia 1.4 has a 6.51-inch HD+ screen in an aspect ratio of 20: 9, which is much larger than the other phones in the series. On the front panel there is a recess for a 5 MP selfie camera, and on the back we have a dual-this is a novelty in the series 1-the main camera.
- The main sensor is 8 MP, and 2 MP macro is added to this, and all this is supported by Camera Go, that is, the application for Android Go devices.
The phone itself has a Snapdragon 215 on board, just like the previous generation. In addition, we will also find 3 GB of RAM in the phone, as well as 64 GB of internal storage. Finally, there remains the 4000 mAh battery.
The phone runs on Android 10, and Nokia said it would also be ready to adopt the next version of that operating system. Read also about new videocard NVIDIA RTX 4090.
